DIETING, DATING AND YOUR DNA
Discover how what's stored in your genes affects patterns in relationships, eating and more.

OK, I know what you’re probably thinking. It’s easy to see the connection between dieting and DNA, or at least how your DNA might have something to do with your weight. But dating and DNA?

What on earth could dating and your DNA have to do with each other? And no, I’m not talking about the connection between dating, love, sex, pregnancy and giving birth to a bundle of joy who has daddy’s eyes or grandma’s smile. I’m not talking about the 3-5% of DNA that determines the color of our hair, skin or eyes, whether we’re short or tall, the shape of our body or our features or predisposition to illness or disease. I’m talking about the 95-97% of DNA which has been referred to as “junk” DNA because mainstream science hasn’t been able to figure out what it does.

More from YourTango: ARE YOU READY FOR A MIDLIFE REINVENTION?

We have learned, through the work of cellular biologists and quantum physicians , that much of this “junk” DNA is actually tied to our “extra-sensory” perceptions, our ability to see, hear and feel beyond the limits of our five physical senses. We also now recognize that we live in an energetic world and that everything, including our thoughts and emotions, are made up of energy in different vibrational patterns, or frequencies. Stay with me here.

More from YourTango: NO ROOM FOR BLAME

Everything you’ve ever experienced in your lifetime is stored in your energy system, like a program that’s installed on your computer. Every person has their own unique energy signature, based on their accumulated life experience and the emotional vibrational frequency of those accumulated experiences. Just like on your computer, those programs can have outdated information that’s no longer relevant or can be full of viruses that slow down your computer’s functioning. But, as long as they’re still installed on your computer, they will have an effect on how your computer operates. Similarly, if you have old, outdated “programs” stored in your cellular memory, they are affecting how you operate on a day to day basis and definitely have you reacting in old, unsupportive patterns.

Let’s get back to dieting and dating as examples of how this would work. Say, for example, that you grew up in a household where food was used as a reward or a substitute for affection, attention or acceptance. The only time you were rewarded with “treats” was when you satisfied your caretaker’s agenda or needs by doing chores, parenting younger siblings, getting straight A’s or even by being used for sexual gratification. The majority of the time you may have been ignored, yelled at, or even hit or touched inappropriately.  You learn to associate “love” with taking care of others and with food.

Share this with someone you love (or even like a lot)!
