So last week I talked about what cellular memory is and why it causes physical problems. As a health coach this intrigues me. It was not something I had ever heard much about until recently but it confirmed my beliefs that all illness is not physical in origin – in other words, it originates from spirit and soul issues and manifests in the physical body. Since we are tri-part beings: we ARE spirits, we have a soul (a mind, will and emotions) and we live in a physical body, it makes perfect sense, to me anyway, that no matter what we are discussing, it originates in the spirit because that is who we truly are.
I read a statistic recently that 90% of all drugs only work for 30-50% of people. It’s been well documented that as much as 95% of all disease and illness originates from stress. Remember, stress suppresses the immune system, drains our energy, makes us dumber by redirecting our brain energy and causes us to fail! It doesn’t just affect our physical health – it impacts our overall success in all areas as well. We tend to think of stress as coming solely from external causes – a nasty boss, too many deadlines, financial problems, relationship problems. But the internal causes of stress (destructive, negative cellular memories) control the external. Our internal program controls what happens externally just as the spiritual controls and supersedes the physical.
While we can more easily recognize the physical effects of stress, it also affects us spiritually. If you have been told as a child that you are bad or stupid or you can’t do something, that belief is stored as a cellular memory and then as an adult, try as you may, to believe you are the righteousness of God in Christ, a son or daughter of the King, the apple of His eye, and that you can do all things through Christ, you just can’t seem to do it and don’t know why! You can memorize and confess scripture all day long and still find you struggle with it and begin thinking there’s something inherently wrong with you – but there is not!
Unfortunately most treatments for disease and illnesses address the disease symptom but not the source. That is not to say that nutrition, taking proper supplements, staying hydrated and getting adequate exercise and rest will not improve your physical health. Those are very important things – but especially when you are dealing with a specific condition, unless you get to the true source and root – you may experience some improvement, but never total resolution. I can say this because I’ve been there!
You may be thinking – sure I’ve had experiences that caused feelings of fear, anger, insecurity, sadness or low self-worth, but I don’t think about them any more – I’ve put them behind me. Think again. Even though you don’t consciously think about them, those memories are always broadcasting these destructive signals into your cells. You can intellectually get over past experiences but the frequencies and feelings can still be trapped in your cells. And as I said before, wherever your weakest link is, that’s where you’ll experience pain or symptoms.
What condition of your physical body or aspect of your life can you point to as being an area that needs resolution at the root?
The stat about the percentage of people drugs work for and the percentage of disease and illness brought on by stress is unbelievable.
Pretty incredible, I know!

I’ve been healed from a lot of things — allergies, alcohol addiction, hypothyroidism, high cholesterol and more. Certainly all of those had some roots from way back. Getting in agreement with God’s Word and will was the key to healing for me. I know He wants me healthy and whole — spirit, soul and body!
Have a Victorious Day!

That’s an incredible stat that 95% of all disease and illness originates from stress!
I’m reading the classical Norman Vincent Peale book, “The Power of Positive Thinking” right now. He too talks about the impact of stress and our overall thoughts have on our body.
It’s really quite amazing.
It is amazing Michael and especially since we can feel we’ve “gotten over it” and not even realize it is still affecting us.

So this line of reasoning raises some questions for me. If we save negative memories on a cellular level does that also mean that we save all positive memories on a cellular level? Are some memories saved and others not? If so how do we choose which to save and which not to save. Does one memory trump the other? For instance if you have more positive memories than negative will you be healthy or do positive memories not have the power to overcome negative memories? If negative memories manifest themselves in illness, does this always happen? Or do some people have negative memories that never surface as illness?
Ann, I can see how this relates bigtime to weight loss. I grew up very overweight, however in middle school I resolved to get in shape, so I ate correctly, grew tall (which helped) and got quite thin, however I still saw myself as overweight. Since then my weight has fluctuated a good bit back and forth. I’ve heard that your fat cells are “shaped” in your youth and that you may have larger ones than those that grew up thin. It kinda sounds like they have that “memory” stored in them.
On a side note, it seems that when you’re interested in something you see it all around. I was listening to a podcast yesterday and the host was interviewing “The Gabriel Method” author and his website has information (even counseling/coaching) to address the emotional stress in your cells!
It’s so true, Michael, once you begin learning about something – you begin to see information about it everywhere! And yes, I believe this is a missing piece to the puzzle of why some people cannot sustain weight loss.
