The evolution of genealogy and genetics is breaking down walls of limitation

By Kay Stroud - posted Friday, 30 September 2016

Courageously striving to escape the frightening prognosis, she avidly explored various forms of alternative medicine and theories on the mind-body connection, as well as spirituality and its link to health. Her journey finally led her to the writings of Mary Baker Eddy and as she studied them and also had healing prayer from someone more familiar with these ideas she said she learned that health was an "indestructible part" of her "divine inheritance".

She found her way to total freedom quickly. Lisa had replaced the belief in genetic vulnerability with the understanding that disease didn't have to be part of her experience.

Dedicated gene researchers continue to seek solutions and make discoveries in the desire to give hope to humanity. And genealogy research provides a fascinating record of our ancestors, which can lead to newfound appreciation in families and the community. This is progress that helps take off human shackles.


Nonetheless, when our true spiritual nature becomes better understood, theories derived from genetics and genealogy may be outgrown as limited thinking disappears.

In differing degrees, we're all beginning to discover more about who we really are, so that our genes or family tree need not predetermine or negatively impact our life experience, behaviour, talents, intelligence or health.
