The thought of using our words with intention to recreate the exact meaning, emotion or mood that we ourselves are experiencing has led me into some interesting reading. Intention has always been a part of my work as a celebrant, and as I mentioned in my last post, it was a big part of my work as an early childhood teacher as well, however it is only in the last year or so that I have come to realise how deeply intention really does affect us and move us.
I have been reading all kinds of interesting stuff this week on this topic, snatching sentences here and there while breastfeeding the little one. (That is about the only reading time I have now … I tried to have a little quiet read in bed this morning with no joy. The prevailing concept seems to be: Mum is still, therefore Mum is available!) The bits I have managed to look at have been tantalising indeed – all kinds of interesting ideas about how connected we all are in this world. I am looking forward to pursuing these thoughts, but it will be an ongoing project I think!
The most interesting thing I picked up was a book on Shamanism which talked about DNA and its connection to our emotions. I am pretty open-minded, but I have to say I am not ready to buy the idea that DNA are reptilian-like creatures that came as refugees from outer space and populated this planet, forming little social groups that eventually became the first complex organisms on this earth. I’m not ruling it out, mind you! Anything is possible … but for the moment I am more interested in pursuing the research done on DNA and how it connects us physically and spiritually.
It seems the DNA are so intrinsically linked with our emotional state, that DNA removed from our bodies will change behaviour at the exact same moment that we change our emotions. No matter how far away our DNA is. The implication here is that when we touch somebody and leave our DNA on them, they are then connected in a small way to our emotional state. Those people we touch often (family, close friends), and who we feel ‘in tune’ with are likely to be the ones who are experiencing our DNA’s behaviour. So it is true that our thoughts and feelings (therefore our INTENTIONS) do have an effect on others. We are all connected.
There will be more to come on this topic – but in the meantime there is plenty on you-tube to illustrate what I am talking about! Here is a beautiful one demonstrating Dr Emoto’s research into how our words, and the intention behind our words affect the very structure of matter. It gives me goosebumps! To think that water can create such beautiful forms with beautiful words and feelings. Imagine, that as most of our body IS water, it too would be creating these beautiful pictures inside of us when we feel good, and when we are consciously sharing our good feelings. How wonderful our bodies must feel to BE beautiful! Imagine too, how your physical bodies must feel when we indulge in negative feelings. We can’t do it to ourselves!! No wonder we get sick!
