Listen to this audio post:
I'm Jeff Ordonez founder and lead researcher at Christ Audio.com - What I'm about to share with you rarely reaches mainstream media, yet it's the most significant discovery of our time.
Dr. Herbert Benson, a Harvard educated cardiologist and founder of the Mind/Body Medical Institute at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston conducted a very special experiment. In 2008 he examined the genetic expressions of people before and after meditation. What he found shocked staff members.
He discovered that meditative practices changes genetic activity! Blood samples were taken before and after a controlled test where adults with no experience listened to a simple 20 minute relaxation CD during an 8-week period.
The analysis determined that expressions of more than 22,000 genes were changed! The results revealed more pronounced positive genetic activity in people who were long-term meditation practitioners.
The relaxation techniques showed to have and affect on anxiety, and many physical disorders which affect heart rate, blood pressure, oxygen consumption, and even brain activity.
And this was just the beginning. An examination of biological systems showed that the improved genetic activity played a prominent role in reducing inflammation in many areas of the body, reducing stress, helping trauma, and even suppressing the affect of cancerous cells.
Doctor Benson warns that although this is not a magic solution to sickness, it is proof that meditation techniques changes our physiology enough that it can help many standard medical treatments.
In an unrelated experiment. Decades prior, in 1979 Dr. Ellen Langer, a Ph.D. social psychologist and the first female professor to gain tenure in the Psychology Department at Harvard University, hypothesized that age and its affects can be controlled by the mind.
Her landmark study in which elderly men lived for a week as though it was 1959, seemed to grow younger! Langer proved that the magic lies in the mind. In her scientifically riveting academic paper she demonstrated how before and after tests showed statistically significant improvements in strength, posture, flexibility, memory, and intelligence. Even more incredible, eyesight was improved by an average of 10%! Before and after pictures also revealed that the men even looked younger!
Dr. Langer's experiment proves that genetic activity is governed by our thinking.
Now here's what the Bible has to say about all this. In Proverbs 4:22 it states that God's word is life to those who find it, and health to their flesh.
This verse literally states that the word of God retained in the mind is health to the body. Today we know that physical health is due to positive genetic activity. It seems that God our creator not only wanted us to know we have the power to control our genes but He gave us the best method to do so, the meditation of His word.
Here's what Jesus has to say...If you keep my word We will dwell in you (John 14:23)
This adds another dimension to the message of Proverbs. If your mind is influenced during a state of meditation by God's word, God's presence will increase in you, then according to Proverbs your body will be genetically regenerated.
The Bible presents an astounding lesson about the mind, and one that scientists are just now catching up to. This one simple technique of being influenced by God's word while relaxing during our meditations is the reason why you feel better.
I have news for you... The presence of God is increasing in you and it's changing your genetic activity. So now everything is possible for you who believes. Mark 9:23
That's why since you took the first step and started with the 7-Day program you probably felt better, more relaxed, balanced, and positive. You may have even felt God's blessings. You were beginning to enter God's kingdom realm where all things are possible.
Now that you're experiencing the 20 – 30 minute Christian meditations accomplishing your goals are within reach.
Just like Dr. Benson, I'm not going to tell you that this is a magic pill. What I am telling you is that the most important thing you can do is to stick with it. According to Harvard and the Bible that's how significant change happens.
Once your mind becomes fully influenced by hundreds of biblical affirmations your greatest victories will be around the corner.
Don't stop the momentum! Now is the time you need to go all the way and become a living example of what God can do. And like so many of our members you might be the next one to send us a praise-filled email. And we're looking forward to it.
Keep in mind, we don't stand behind our emails, we stand behind the research conducted at Harvard University and God's word. The emails are simply a testimony that Harvard studies and God's word are true.
