What are memories? What do they have to do with health and healing? Is there a connection? Beyond that is there a connection to memory, health and forgiveness?
Memories are stored in the cells of your body, all the cells of your body. Your body is the memory bank of your life. The brain is the chemical switching station. Think of the brain like a busy train station, trains coming and going constantly day and night. The chemicals in your body are the trains; they carry needed supplies throughout the body and aid in waste removal.
Cellular memory is a phenomenon that came to light with the advent of organ transplants. Organ recipients were reporting stories of liking foods they hadn’t before. They were drawn to interests and activities that hadn’t been of interest prior to the transplant. They also reported having memories of the person whose organ they had received.
Early in transplant history, doctors tried to come up with explanations for these phenomena. In the end, it is the recipients themselves and their stories that have shed light on the fact that our bodies are memory banks. Prior to this, it was assumed that memories were stored in the brain. Somehow, there were unique little places in the brain where all memories were stored. We now know this isn’t totally true. Of all that grey matter sitting up there, we only use about 10% or less. Wouldn’t it be intriguing to find out what the rest of it is used for?
But let’s get back to cellular memory. Many cultures, including ancient cultures, hold a tradition of bodily resurrection. The flip side of this belief is that of reincarnation, where the body is continually reborn. Whichever you believe, the fact that memories are stored at a cellular level doesn’t change.
Let’s examine this a little deeper. If memories are stored in your cells then when you have children it is conceivable that you are passing your memories, at the cellular level (or at least some of them), to your children. Your children in turn would pass along some or all of the memories they received from you as well as their own memories to their children, and so on down the genealogic line.
This progressive passage of cellular memory could be an explanation for what people report as being reincarnation. Somehow, they have accessed deep cellular memories of their ancestors that are so real to them it is as if they have lived the life of their ancestor. This is just my theory.
There are many forms of memories. Memories are created chemically. Trauma creates cellular memory. General injury, something as simple as a cat scratch, creates cellular memory. Feelings and emotions associated with every-day events create cellular memory – events such as a birthday, being with someone, and watching a child’s accomplishment. What makes the memory is the emotion associated with the event or feeling. Every emotion has a chemical co-responder. Emotion is the spiritual connection to the physical. Emotions are stored chemically in your cells, and they stay there until released.
There are emotions that we consider “good” – such as joy, happiness, excitement, elation – and emotions that we consider as “bad” – such as anger, resentment, worry, feeling hurt, and guilt.
The chemical reactions associated with stress are also stored at the cellular level in your body. Stress is now widely recognized as the leading cause of all illness and the cause of upwards of 90% of doctor visits annually.
Can you imagine what a different world it would be if you and those around you could learn to reduce and eliminate the effects of stress on your body?
There are techniques you can learn and do that will reduce the effects of stress, stimulate your immune system to respond better, and help your body to heal itself.
Some of the techniques that can be used to release emotion and the effects of stress from your body right down to the cellular level include Qi Gong (literally energy work), EFT (Emotion Freedom Technique), and applied kinesiology. These three techniques are in the realm of energy work or body work. They use the flow of universal energy and the energy meridians in your body to release stress allowing the body to heal itself naturally.
The body was actually designed to maintain itself. It is capable of maintaining health. The cells in your body are constantly reproducing, right down to the memories that are stored in them. If cell deterioration and cell death were eliminated, there would be no disease and no aging as we know it today. In fact, when you are experiencing disease or illness, it is your body’s way of telling you that something isn’t in harmony – emotionally, physically or mentally – your body’s energy is unsynchronized. When balance and harmony are restored, the body can and does heal itself.
There is another technique, a spiritual technique, that has the same effect of releasing memory at the cellular level – it is Forgiveness. When you forgive, it is as if the experience never happened. It ceases to exist right down to the cellular level. This is the unique power of Forgiveness.
You have only truly forgiven when the event, the memory, ceases to exist. It is as if it never was in the first place.
It is equally as important to Forgive Yourself as it is to Forgive others. If something happened that you hold yourself accountable for and can’t let it go, recognize that whatever it was is in the past, the past is not now unless you re-create it every day by not letting go. It is okay to Forgive Yourself. It is okay to love yourself and be present with yourself in this moment. With this understanding, healing can begin.
This is why forgiveness is so crucial to health and healing. If you haven’t forgiven, there is still a memory somewhere in your cells that is out of harmony. As long as those memories remain, your body is in a state of disharmony, and it can’t heal itself.
I’m going to take this one step further to inherited disease. When your body is in such a state that disease has become manifest, let’s say heart disease just as an example, those cellular memories get passed along to your children. This is why doctors say that certain diseases run in a family or are inherited. You are only inheriting the genetic expression of the cells’ DNA that was known from before.
I am going to go out on a limb here and make the claim that inherited disease can be eradicated if you erase the memory of the disease at the cellular level. It is as if it never happened. This may seem far-fetched and heretical but science is actually beginning to prove this. I am working on a special report that goes into this in much greater detail.
Imagine a world without illness or disease! It would be like a utopia. How long do you think people would live? Cells continually regenerate. The Judeo-Christian Bible says that after the flood, God limited the age of man to 120. There is one person alive today who is reported to be 120, and the oldest person ever recorded was Jeanne Calment who died in 1997 at the age of 122. Of note, the person who is 120 and still alive is a Bedouin woman living in northern Israel. She attributes her age and good health to her diet which is predominantly vegetarian.

According to Dictionary.com, health is the general condition of the body or mind regarding soundness and vigor; vitality; freedom from disease or ailment.
The word “health” comes from the Old English meaning “whole.” So to be in a state of good health is to be in a state of wholeness. You are whole, complete, perfect. Vitality and vigor pertain to life.
Wellness is the quality or state of being healthy in body and mind, especially as the result of deliberate effort; it is an approach to healthcare that emphasizes preventing illness and prolonging life, as opposed to an emphasis on treating disease (the symptom) (emphasis mine).
Well-being as defined by WordNet is a contented state of being happy, healthy and prosperous.
It is interesting to note most definitions of well-being include prosperity. Prosperity is a natural state, a divine state, of abundance, and abundance only exists in the universe. Anything less than abundance is a perception.
A gerund is a word form derived from a verb used as a noun, i.e. “The saying goes…”; a gerundive is a word derived from an adverbial form used as a noun, i.e. to be, I AM.
Therefore, “well” is an adverbial form of “to be” used as a noun, i.e., “The well-being of the children is at stake.”
Correctly, when speaking of health and someone asks you, “How are you today?” the proper response would be, “I am well.” Well is the verb descriptor (adverb) describing the verb To Be (I am). Somehow, in the last 25 – 30 years, western society (at least in America) has lost this. Speech has a much deeper meaning than we are aware of. Words particularly are very important. This thought alone should be enough for us to take care to guard our speech and think before we speak.
The etymology of “well” is particularly interesting because of it being an adverbial form of “BE.” To be = I am, you are, he/she/it is… I AM is the creator of all that is (see blog post I WILL BE That I WILL TO BE). Therefore, you are of I AM, you are an intrinsic part of I AM. You are not separate from the “whole” of I AM. Remember “health” is wholeness, not just wholeness of your individual body but “wholeness” as it pertains to the “whole” of creation.
This is a vital clue, a change in perception, that will totally change your “well-being.”
