Telomeres: The Biological Clock in Our Genetics

Our bodies are made up of approximately 60-100 trillion cells. Every cell contains a nucleus, within which exists our chromosomes. Humans have 23 pair of chromosomes and chromosomes contain genetic information to be passed on called DNA. At the very tip of these chromosomes are tiny little strands of DNA called telomeres—biological clocks buried in our genetic makeup that science previously thought had a finite existence.

Every time a human cell divides, it makes a copy of its DNA. The problem with cell division is that DNA replication isn’t perfect and so it skips over the end of each chromosome. The telomeres at the end of these chromosomes then serve as meaningless repeats of DNA that we can afford to lose. This becomes a problem, however, because as cells continue to divide, our telomeres become shorter and shorter. Eventually they become totally stripped away, at which point they lose their ability to divide. While science isn’t one hundred percent certain how the reduction of telomeres affects aging, it’s clear that it is a natural part of the aging process. The good news is, through some healthy lifestyle interventions such as exercise, reducing stress, eating foods high in antioxidants, and practicing yoga and meditation, telomeres can also be lengthened. It begs the question, when we make the right choices to create more balance and homeostasis, can we reverse our biological clock and alter our genetic destiny?

This process of lengthening and shortening telomeres, like everything else in this space-time reality we live in, takes time. For instance, it takes time to heal, it takes time to make money, it takes time to find a relationship, and it takes time to change. This is because we’re playing by the rules of Newtonian Physics. But what we’re finding in our work is that healings and other manifestations are happening in shorter amounts of time. If something that should take a certain amount of time is happening more quickly—or even instantaneously—that means time is collapsing. If this is the case, then on some level we’re addressing a quantum phenomenon.

Recently I was having a conversation with a genetic researcher who is helping us measure telomeres at our Advanced Workshop in Palm Springs in September. We were discussing how telomeres, like fingernails or hair, take time to grow, thus to see a significant change in the lengthening of telomeres usually takes 60 – 90 days. He was of the mindset that this was the only way it can occur. I offered him an alternative perspective and said to him, “That’s true if we’re looking at it through the window of Newtonian physics—by chemicals changing chemicals or matter changing matter. This process happens in our three-dimensional reality—in space-time—because everything takes time in this realm. But what if it’s a quantum phenomenon and it’s happening from a place of energy—from a place beyond space and time?” In other words, if it happens in no time, then the process is no longer Newtonian; now its quantum.

I told him about the many different people in our workshops who have had spontaneous healings during the workshop, meaning once they’ve returned to their senses—post meditation—when they open their eyes, suddenly their eczema disappeared, their hearing returned, their wounds and lesions healed, or the pain in their back was no longer present. I told him that had to be a quantum phenomenon and made the hypothesis that if these students were connecting to the wholeness and unifying energy of the unified field, then we should be able to see some changes in telomere length. If the process was occurring instantaneously, say within a weekend, our students would not be at the mercy of a linear process in time. It would be a quantum process, which is one way to explain spontaneous remission.

In February this year, when we measured 7500 gene regulations at our Advanced Workshop in Tampa, Florida, the scientific team we partnered with had the same opinion. They thought that the ability to regulate new genes would take months to observe. However, in four days, 30 students upregulated 8 genes that are intimately involved with health and healing. What an exciting time to discover how powerful human beings really are.

We are now studying telomeres at our workshops and will continue to do so over the next year. If we find that telomeres are indeed lengthening in several days, that’s just one more proof point that people are connecting to the energy of the unified field. In other words, it would mean that the intervention that’s causing the change in the telomeres is not coming from matter, because that would require time—so if it’s not matter then its energy. And since energy is the what governs matter, it makes sense that our bodies should respond to a new mind.

When you change your energy, you change your life.

    How did you measure the new 8 gene growth cells? Did you do bloodwork on the participants before and then after the seminars and meditations?

    In his opinion ‘time is collapsing’ . But that’s not really true… is it?

    Yes the mind creates the body and it’s state of health or disease is feedback about what’s been happening in the mind consistently. And disease that developed over years reflects beliefs and negative emotional states held by the person as a steady state of being.

    Can a quantum leap change a sick body in a weekend such that it stays cured?

    When it returns to it’s sickness fosteting environment, circumstances and relationships what happens.

    I’m wondering if the people emerging cured from an intensive meditation weekend have pulled a ‘Schrödinger’s cat’ so to speak. It’s not the old sick body they are accustomed to obsurving, it’s another body.. that’s never known sickness. The miraculously lengthened of telomeres may be just an artifact of that quantum shift and not in any way the cause.

    Let’s not jump to conclusions too quickly. But just keep up the amazing practice and observe what happens and what it takes to sustain it.

    I was on the telomere team in Palm Springs and one observation we witnessed was taking blood on Wednesday before the event was difficult. We had to liertalkt milk the participants finger to fill the testing strip. When we tested again after the event blood flowed from the participants finger with ease. Pretty amazing!!!!!

    What factors allowed 30 students to access the quantum field while others apparently could/did not?

      It seems there were 30 participants in the study of genes (picked out of hundreds as testing is expensive I assume!). Of which there are 7500 gene regulations tested in each person. And in each participant 8 sets of genes relating to health and healing got upregulated. So potentially all participants had upregulated genes but only 30 quantified with testing.

      Hi, They don’t test all of the students for the same things at an Advanced Workshop. Perhaps someone can confirm but it is probable that only 30 students were tested for the genetic changes. Other testing includes brain mapping etc.

      Having attended a few of these I can assure you that the participants access the quantum field and many wonderful changes occur for almost…(I don’t know anyone who isn’t changed but I will not claim 100% without data) everyone!!

      Jan ~ I think only 30 people were actually measured via blood test ~ everyone there had/has access to the quantum field which means anyone who tunes in has this ability to lengthen their telomeres! So cool!

    I was in Tampa in February. . In May I broke my arm in a bike accident. I was told 8 weeks to heal. I explained that I was going to meditate and be finished by the three week follow up visit. At the theee week visit my X-ray showed the break was healed and I was released. Last year I needed surgery on my ankle because a tendon was popped between two other tendons. The physiatrist wanted an ultra sound to have a baseline for movement. When I went for the ultra sound five weeks later the injury was healed. No surgery needed. Thank you Dr Joe!

    This is very interesting, and well explained (if a Math teacher can learn from This, what else can you say). Looking forward to learn more. This is helping me to understand who am I and how to unleash my potential. This is the beginning to grow my telomeres.
    Thumbs up Dr. Joe

    Curious how you are measuring telomeres without a lab. Would think you’d need to isolate the DNA from cells, etc. Let me know. I believe it can be true. All the people who exercise &/or meditate look naturally younger.

    Really interesting – The heart and heart chakra in essence move towards collapsing time and space. A healthy heartbeat will create 5 transient vortices, each in golden mean ration which Dan Winter describes as a self-amplifying compression implosion which accelerates towards singularity i.e. the unified field. Guy Bennet a kinesiologist with a major in genetics has proposed that this allows a portal to the unified field and “allows a multidimensional exchange of energy infusing the blood with vital universal energy on a subatomic, atomic, molecular and cellular level”
    On a practical level as we move towards more acceptance and compassion we move towards that heart essence to allow the universe bring through its healing and life energy.
    Also the 10th chakra regulates time. As we work through life cycles and karma in our physical etheric emotional and higher mental and spiritual levels, with the aspects concerning this charka; possibly we let go more of the constraints of the time dimension and open to the unified field. In practical terms I apply this to myself and clients through kinesiology

    Me sorprendió ver la figura que se presenta en la imagen primera. Cuando hago la meditación “Bendición de los Centros de Energía” esa figura aparece en mi mente durante el trabajo. Entro en un mar de luz amarilla-dorada y de la nada surge esa imagen y rueda como si estuviera en una pista se desliza hasta que desaparece en la lejanía.
    Tiene esto alguna conexión con lo que se explica en este artículo?
