The universal belief has been that genes determine character and fate at conception. The concept is that we’re not able to select our DNA; we’re powerless and impotent in that department. But, Epigenetics disrupts that concept by stating that we can leverage most situations regulating the environment in which we live, our perception of it, and the individuals that surround us. This idea shifts our position from mere victim of heredity to master of our own genetics. The brain translates how we perceive and interpret the world as a chemical response, and those chemicals consist of information that adjusts the behavior and genetics of cells. Personal perception and the way we opt to live, including our spiritual nature, adjusts genes to manifest either a functional state of health or one of dysfunction — in some cases, even generating disease. Epigenetics has come along to revolutionize genetics. In changing our lifestyle and beliefs, we create chance in our genetic expression.
