Today’s Lesson: You Are Not Doomed To Your Genetics. They Can Be Changed With The Right Thoughts.
If you have been told that you are doomed to repeat the patterns in your family, you’re a victim who is controlled by your genes and biology or you cannot transcend the influence of your environment, you’ve been lied to and need to hear the truth. I have a very encouraging truth to tell you: You may have spent your entire life of 40, 50, or 60 years putting toxic thoughts in your brain, building negative strongholds.
You may have a whole forest of toxic thorn trees in your brain but: In just 4 days of thinking correctly you can remove the thorns from those toxic thorn trees and you can create new healthy memories over them within 21 days.
For example, if you decide to reject those thoughts of anger, hatred, unforgiveness, bitterness, genuine repentance, releasing, and forgiveness, you can change that memory and the structure of the thorn trees. It has been scientifically proven that if you choose to reject toxic thoughts and purposefully meditate on good thoughts such as the Word of God, the chemicals released from the good thoughts will flow through the thorn trees and remove those thorns, literally.
When you repent for your bitterness and you forgive, the chemicals released from those thoughts will literally cut the thorns off thorn trees of bitterness.
The memory will always be there, the example you’ll always remember what your mother in law did to you. However, because you have forgiven that tree of bitterness will no longer affect you or make you sick as it no longer has the thorns that release those toxic chemicals.
When you think of your mother in law you no longer feel that high octane ping go off inside of you; whereas before you had forgiven, when she came to mind you could physically feel a strong angry emotion rise up within you. It applies to any other toxic thorn tree such as fear, anxiety, worry, low self-esteem, guilt, anger, self-hatred, jealousy, rejection, etc.
When you make a decision to reject those toxic thoughts and change your thinking to the way that God thinks, described in His Word, a new healthy memory will be built on top of that old toxic thorn tree and the emotional sting will be removed the same time. You can change and grow your brain at will through thinking.
You can choose to deal with those toxic thorn trees and build new healthy memories over them. Science calls this process “re transcribing memory neuroplastically”. And be not conformed to this world: but be you transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God (Romans 12:2).
Retranscribing memory neuroplastically is what the Bible refers to as “the renewing of your mind”. And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; (Ephesians 4:23). God has designed our brains in such a way that we have an amazing ability to renew our minds. When you choose to confront your toxic thinking patterns and recognize how they affect your life, those toxic thoughts are pushed from the non-conscious into your conscious mind.
At this point, they enter a labile state which means they are unstable and can be altered. This means that while that thought is in your conscious mind, you can do something with it: it can be redesigned and changed or kept the same and reinforced.
In other words that memory (whether it is healthy or toxic) will either be changed or strengthened. No thought stays neutral. When it enters your conscious mind it is unstable and is altered in either a positive or negative direction but it never stays the same. Even if the content of the thought is not changed, new proteins are made (protein synthesis) which strengthens that thought.
The toxic thought can get worse or the good thought can get better. When you choose to get rid of the toxic thinking habits and renew your mind with the Word of God, some branches on the nerves are removed, new ones form, the strength of the connections change and the memories network with other thoughts.
Your brain has an incredible capacity to change, rewire, grow, and heal! You can literally remodel the memories in the brain by changing your thinking. Our brains are truly incredible. They can be reshaped and reformed. It is all under your control. Your thoughts not only remodel the memories in your brain but your genes as well.
You can change and grow your brain at will through thinking right down to the level of the DNA in your genes. It is truly amazing. With the help of the Holy Spirit, you can renew your mind and break the chains that have been limiting your development into the victorious overcomer that God created you to be.
We know about the brain inside your head, but did you know that you have a smaller brain inside your heart? Science shows us that your heart has its own independent nervous system, a complex system known as the “brain in the heart”. A brain basically is a collection of nerves. I explained earlier that you have 100 billion nerves inside the brain inside your head.
The brain inside the heart has 40,000 nerves. This heart-brain works hand in hand with your prefrontal cortex and free will’s decision making. Free will is what you use to accept or reject thoughts and your prefrontal cortex is your rational decision-maker used to control a strong emotion that rises from the Amygdala.
