"Inherited Memories" v/s "Genetic Memories"
Recognizing our "inherited memories" can lead us to better health, self-discovery, personal growth and truth. On the other hand, accepting the false
idea of "genetic memory" and "genetically inherited traits" leads directly to truly horrific
Unfortunately, many journalists and New Age guru-types wrongly use the words "inherited" and "genetic" interchangeably, as when writing about
Schützenberger's Ancestry Syndrome
. BIG mistake. Please bear with me - this is not just semantics. "Inherited Memories" and "Genetic
Memories" are very different ideas; the mechanisms involved are totally different; and most importantly, the implications are absolute polar
In simple terms, "inherited" does NOT mean "genetic." Everything genetic IS inherited but everything that can
be inherited is NOT genetic.
"Inheritance" in general involves various mechanisms including both genetics and epigenetics. However, genetic inheritance relies exclusively on DNA
(genes), while epigenetic inheritance involves other mechanisms that over-ride
gene expression aka
genetic inheritance (for good
The take home message here is that you're stuck with your genes, but you CAN change your epigenetic inheritance
and also, maybe over-ride your
genes' expressions. True, there is no scientific evidence showing we can change our genes' expressions by force of will, however, science
prove that epigenetic change is not permanent even when it's inherited, and does
show we can "fix" the bad effects.
Unfortunately, just saying "inherited memories" are "genetic memories" is dangerous because genetic stuff is permanent - the Eugenics Movement is
alive and well, and committed to "culling defectives" from the human gene pool. Their rationale is that some people just have bad genes that
pre-dispose them to bad traits and so, are not "worthy." The new science of epigenetics is quite wonderful because it proves that inherited negative
traits are NOT genetic or permanent, and can be "fixed."
…I do have personal experience with medically verifiable cell memories, and inherited memories, but am loath to talk about them here unless this
genetic-epigenetic issue is cleared up to my satisfaction.
