Epigenetics 5. Do you have the GENETIC CODE for ultimate success?

Epigenetics 5. Do you have the genetic code for ultimate success?


None of our ancestors, and even our parents, could have prepared us for the current and future challenges and the demands of life and living, we are now experiencing. Their personal, cultural, religious, and social programming came from their level of information, teachings, and interpretation. Much of their genetic coding and meme programming cannot serve us in the future, as many of our current problems and challenges have evolved from the same mindset that was developed to safeguard their culture, religion, and society.

We are on our own We are on our own. We can take from the past what is good and edifying but, from here on we are exploring unchartered waters, identifying new territory, creating new mindsets, identifying a new value system, and re-identifying who we truly are, where we come from, where we are going and what our purpose is.

Survival of the fittest

Our survival as humanity depends on our flexibility and ability to adapt right down to a genetic level. Nature functions on the premise of the survival of the fittest.

We constantly need to change, grow, develop, transform, and transcend to keep ourselves, our family, groups, communities, teams, companies, and organisations, and even humanity flexible, adaptable, and maintain our sustainability. It is change – or become extinct.

Einstein said, “You cannot bring about change by force – only by understanding”. We need a whole new level of understanding.


Over the last 20 years, I have been researching not only the results from The Human Genome Project but also spiritual teachings and different religious perspectives. More than fifteen books have been published on various topics concerning our DNA blueprint. Everything points in one direction. The ability to love and be loved. Herein we find the key to ultimate success.

Question from Tuli

We received an email from Tuli. “Dear Brenda, Thanks for all this new mind-blowing information. I usually can’t wait for the next article. However, I am redesigning my life and would like more clarity concerning 'ultimate success’. Could you tell us more?”. Here is the answer to Tuli’s question.

Genetic blueprint

Some background for those who have just joined us. We all have an original, unique authentic blueprint of who we are, encoded as personal DNA code for health, wealth, happiness, success, and prosperity.

Originally, we thought that our DNA blueprint only held the codes for our physical functioning. However, with the results of The Human Genome Project, we found that we also have emotional, mental, and spiritual DNA codes to secure us living as fully functional unique, human beings. Our DNA initially looked like a ladder.

Unfortunately, we became disconnected. We lost our access to all this power and potential. Our DNA took on the form of a spiral that further disconnected our genetic potential. Today these discontented parts are known as junk genes.

Two sides of self.

Out of the disconnection, developed a self-made, delusional part of self, we call the shadow ego-self, the lower self, shadow self, or any name you would like to choose. I named my shadow ego-self Elaine, and I made friends with her.

Not only did we lose our connection to who we truly are, but we also became disconnected from our inner GPS and our personal purpose. Our map for life faded and we got lost.

However, the real-me authentic self is still there, just waiting for us to get reconnected and take back who we are, including all the power and potential it holds for a successful, fulfilling, prosperous life.

Constant conflict

The real-me authentic self and the shadow ego-self are in constant conflict over who will make the final life-defining decisions in our lives. Whoever wins this inner battle, determines the outcome of our lives.

Wake-up call

Up until recently, we were not aware of this ongoing dynamic within each one of us. Now a wake-up call has been sounded. The COVID-19 pandemic has brought the world to a stillstand. Now we need to reboot, reroute, and realign, not only who we are, but what our purpose is, where we are going and why. There are only one of two options.

Two different paths

The shadow ego-self and the authentic self not only represent two different mindsets and value systems, but they also represent two different paths. The shadow ego-self comes from disconnection, disinformation, delusion, struggle, self-service, and self-preservation that leads to self-destruction. The authentic self comes from a place of connection, honesty, truth, integrity, authenticity, love, compassion, and progress that benefits all. Where you are coming from will determine where you are going.

Conscious choices

Our challenge is to be mindfully, and consciously, choose what self we are going to support. This will determine what path we will follow and inevitably, where we will land up. Not only is each one of us at a fork in the road, but humanity is also currently at a crossroads, as well. The leap to authentic living is now inevitable. This calls for authentic leaders to now emerge and show the way. Some will make the shift while others will stay behind.

In this process, we need to have a vision of what we are aiming for. In both cases, everyone is aiming for success. However. The term ‘success’ looks different to the shadow ego-self than to the authentic self.

The meaning of ‘success’

The definition of ‘success’ is generally seen as ‘obtaining a goal’. However, the true meaning of ‘success’ goes much deeper than that. The word ‘success’, comes from the Latin word, sucedere, which refers to the ability to create flow. To be able to do this, we need to become fully functional. See the previous article on ultimate success.

Success and functioning

The real meaning of success is therefore all about functioning as we should- our authentic self. We are successful when we reconnect to our original DNA success-blueprint and live the life of health, wealth, happiness, and fulfillment as we originally were created to live.

Success and stuff

However, the shadow ego-self defines success as acquiring power, positions, and possessions. Here success is all about 'stuff'. These ego-trappings contribute to a life of lies, cheating, corruption, and self-destruction. It is this path from which we are now waking up.

Now, to get back to Tuli’s question about ‘ultimate success’.

Ultimate success

‘Ultimate success’ is all about creating ultimate flow while becoming fully functional. See the previous article on ‘ultimate success’.

In short, it is all about becoming aware that you already have everything you need in the moment you need it. If not directly, then indirectly. It is also not always in the form that you expect it to be. This calls for you to be open-minded while co-creating with the storeroom of the universe. All you need to do is to open your heart and mind and allow flow. Manifestation and creating miracles are all part of this path.

The question is, how does this relate to our DNA success-code?

Our DNA success-code

Our DNA blueprint can e also be depicted as a barcode. Most of our products in shops and supermarkets have a barcode that holds the information concerning the product, including the price.

Our DNA barcode functions in a similar fashion. Just imagine the whole universe as a great big warehouse filled with everything you need at the moment you need it. It is this DNA barcode that can open doors, align processes, generate resources, and attract the right people and places. We even have a miracle mind. This is a normal occurrence for people who live a spiritual life of faith. For shadow ego-dwellers, this is unimaginable, even weird.

Spirituality is hardwired into our genes[i].

Not only do we have physical DNA, but we also have emotional mental, and spiritual DNA blueprint. Our scientists have found that the ability to live a spiritual life of faith is partially heritable. This le
