Activating the right genes
Even though it is believed that we are genetically predisposed to certain traits and shortcomings in our lives, it has been shown that when a person puts his or her mind to it, they can actually alter their lives so that they do not repeat the lineage or story of their ancestors.
If a person continually looks at himself and agrees with others that he or she is limited in their abilities, then that is exactly who they are. When I was a young girl, I was told that I didn't have the intelligence to be successful or a leader in my life. I struggled through school and lacked the confidence need to prove to others that I was made of the right stuff. I may not have been an ���A' student but I possessed then and I still possess today, the right mental attitude, the discipline and the inner determination that says: ���Yes, I can do it!' If I believed that I was at a disadvantage because it took me a little longer to grasp something, I would have been left in the dark always feeling sorry for my handicap or limits; I instead, tried harder, worked longer hours in preparation until I understand and grasped the situation from all vantage points.
When some people call it our generational curse or challenge others call it their opportunity to prove the world wrong. Whether it is a depressed gene or an angry gene or a cancerous gene it doesn't matter. All of those genes can be made dormant and inactive if that is your choice. They are only activated and brought to the foreground when gone unrecognized and untreated. For example, It is true that we are all born with cancer cells in our bodies but that doesn't mean that you or I will get cancer all it means is that the possibility is there if it is not held in check, in balance. When we are out of balance bad things can happen. My mother died from seven years of horrific cancer, most of my female cousins either died of cancer or had serious cases of cancer. One of my own siblings had her breasts removed and filled to avoid the possibility of cancer. I, instead, said to God: "I do not want to ever get cancer I reject it!" My message back was: "You do not have to ever get cancer but what are you going to do to make sure that you don't get it?" That is part of my life journey. It is my responsibility and obligation to live consciously and aware of whom I am and how I want to lead my life. I
refuse to watch or listen to the dark side of life in movies, books or on TV. Negativity begets negativity. Stress, anxiety and fear open the door to weakening our immune system. Why should I fill me with dark and toxic energy? In truth once the darkness gets embodied within your cells, it is difficult to remove it and get rid of it, so why do I want to subject me to that situation?
I am here to tell you that you don't have to play out what your ancestors started or your heritage card suggests. You can break the bad, the negative traits and bring your attention and intention towards those attributes and traits that will not only benefit you but your children and future generations. Your willingness to break the cord that has bound you and your lineage for centuries will change your history and most likely that of your children and their children. It requires courage---it requires you taking authority against the negative spirits and breaking the generational curse. Every right choice that you make lessens the chance for bad traits to come forth.
Learn to break those cycles of negative behavior and beliefs and choose to walk on the path to finding your greatness. Those negative genes can still be inside of you but they do not have to keep you from being and receiving your best.
