If you ever thought it’s your genes and you can’t do anything about it, then you don’t want to miss this one.

It’s new word Monday and an interesting one has crossed my path. The word is Epigenetics and in short is the study of mechanisms that switch genes on or off. So what does that mean in detail? It means above the genome. It tells your cells what sort of cells they should be. Cell differentiation – skin, heart, hair, liver etc. It can regulate gene function and affect the way we produce proteins. It can be trans generational and contain heritable epigenetic information. It can have an impact on the interaction with our genes and the environment.

I found it very intriguing, a kind of unraveling and changing/programming/considering the way we think. You might want to take a deeper look at this. Let’s simplify this a little more.

It claims that we have the power over our health and wellbeing. That we are in control of our cells and genes. I previously read that we can grow an entire new body as organs and cells regenerate. Your thoughts and environment can literally heal you from the inside out. Finally something to back up what I’ve been talking about all along. I’ve always believed this to be true from my own experience, now I finally have a name for this feeling and it’s no longer a hunch, and something I can’t explain. It makes perfect sense, and our outlook as well as what we surround ourselves with, can make all the difference.

Science is proving that our bodies ability to heal and repair itself is greatly effected by our beliefs, thoughts, emotions, and intentions, for they have a profound vibrational effect upon our continually evolving genetic code. We are the programmers, the co-creators of the code. DNA activation is our software upgrade.

The field of epigenetics, led by Bruce Lipton, is proving that genes are not the end all, be all, of our health. What is more effective on our body is our belief, thoughts and feelings. Stop checking out and putting your life and health in the hands of someone far less qualified than you. How fast you age, and in most cases, what illnesses you create, is a reflection of your subconscious mind through your beliefs, thoughts and feelings. So stop giving away your power and take responsibility for your body – it’s a temple and you can make a big difference. Change the way you think and feel, and it will change the way we treat disease. You have more power then you think and big Pharma is not the answer. And don’t even get me started on the miracle of an all of a sudden 90% effective Covid vaccine.

We are not what we inherit. We are what we express.


Who am I, and why I write. I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I am the one, holding on to the silver lining when the skies are gray. I’m a believer that nothing is coincidence, but that everything has purpose. I’ve made my mistakes, don’t we all, but I see them as growing pains and they are a part of who I am today. I have lost myself in order to find myself, and I still do from time to time, but in a good way. I’m a big child who laughs until my belly hurts when life wants to be serious. Career wise: I’ve been there, done that, and I took “The jump” off the hamster wheel in an effort to change my future. I didn’t land all that soft, but I can say that I’m still proud to have found the courage to do it. Coming full circle, I had it all, and yet I was lonely and had nothing. Today I choose to be a collector of moments and I chase memories, instead of the material stuff. Less is more, and the motto is quality over quantity. You’d be amazed at how freeing it can be. I see myself as a free spirit that believes in an unconventional lifestyle. Somehow I go against the grain most of the times, not to rebel, but because it feels right to stay true to my unique and authentic self. It takes courage, and you often stand alone, but if you dare, you soon realize that it is the only way if you don’t want to lose who you are. Just like most, my past wasn’t easy and I come from a life that didn’t always give me the opportunity to be heard. Few related and even fewer cared to take the time. But that’s the past and it’s history, the future hasn’t happened and the “NOW” is truly all we ever have. In the end we all have a story to tell, and we all seek to be understood. We all yearn to be heard and accepted and still life is hard and our path is full of stumbling blocks. If we can see the lessons in adversity we may realize that the toughest moments are often our greatest teachers. There is a reason for the saying that the stars can’t shine without darkness, and it might be darkness that will show you the light.
It took a series of (un)fortunate events, to learn to glow through the pain, to learn how to dance in the rain. I believe in Magic and wonder, and the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. As an empath this old soul often feels a little too much, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Today, I am here to tell my story because I believe that it can help others. It is my hope to bring inspiration and strengths to you, while showing you that it can be done. I know you are out there, and I know you are suffering in silence. I am here to tell you that you are not alone, and your voice is being heard loud and clear. Hang on and be strong, transformation is yours. 
In light and love....Rhapsody Bohème 💙🦋

    1. I know you do and bless you for it. For getting up every day, good and bad and giving it your best, never losing sight even when the pain consumes you and steals your will and strengths. I know all too well and I see you and the struggle. I think you are doing amazing Wendi and I also think you, we don’t often hear it or don’t hear it enough. Here is to you, to us, the fighters and warriors that pave the way and shed light onto this difficult path. Much love to you.
