Once again the church up the road has a marquee that made me think. It reads:

“Heaven – don’t lose it for the world”

We know “heaven” is a state of consciousness. I think of heaven as that place of peace within me where I absolutely know everything is alright in my life – and even if it isn’t, there is That Within Me handling all the details. Yet, it’s so easy to get mesmerized by the world way of thinking that we feel like we’ve lost “heaven.”

In an article by the author Gregg Braden, he shares three experiments with DNA. One of them was done by the Institute of Heart Math. 28 researchers, who had been trained to generate their feelings, were given a vial of human placenta DNA (the most pristine form):

“What was discovered was that the DNA CHANGED ITS SHAPE according to the feelings of the researchers:

1. When the researchers FELT gratitude, love and appreciation, the DNA responded by RELAXING and the strands unwound. The length of the DNA became longer.

2. When the researchers FELT anger, fear, frustration, or stress, the DNA responded by TIGHTENING UP. It became shorter and SWITCHED OFF many of our DNA codes! If you've ever felt "shut down" by negative emotions, now you know why your body was equally shut down too. The shut down of the DNA codes was reversed and the codes were switched back on again when feelings of love, joy, gratitude and appreciation were felt by the researchers.”

I see the relaxed state as Heaven, and the contracted state as what happens when we allow ourselves to become fearful and stressed. Gives new meaning to the song “Don’t Worry, Be Happy”, eh? Thank God we are living in a participatory Universe!

So – don’t lose heaven for the world J

There is That Within me that is powerful, loving, and intelligent. It is Universal Life/Mind/Heart. I am so grateful for my awareness of this Presence.

I choose to let go of the world way of thinking and bless myself and my world with my expanded consciousness. I choose to be happy. As I make this choice, the whole Universe moves to make this my physical Reality. I see the results of my choice showing up in every area of my life. I am healthy, wealthy, loving and loved. I am doing work that fills my soul. I am a blessing to my world, and am blessed by my consciousness.

How grateful I am to know these Principles. How grateful I am that I have the courage to consciously put them to work for the good of all. I’m living in heaven and celebrating Life!

And so It is.
