Self-coaching 4: How to use the GENETIC SHIFT to boost your life, relationships, finances & future.

Managing change and transformation

Over the last year or two, we have been experiencing unprecedented challenges and change. Only those who are self-sufficient, and can think on their feet, will survive the tsunami of challenges and transformation still to come. Only these people will be able to sustain success while creating something new. The rest will stay behind.

Everyone needs to make the choice to or move forward and upward - or stay behind.

This is the time to learn how to coach yourself to the next level.


In a previous article[1] we answered the questions, what is self-coaching? Who coaches who? How do I learn to coach myself? Where can a learn to coach myself? Why has self-coaching become so important? Please read this again and see the books.

Now it is time to move to the next level.

Einstein said, "You cannot bring about change by force - only by understanding."

Understanding the processes

For a deeper understanding, we need to be aware that humanity, and this includes you and me, is currently undergoing a genetic shift. Going against these processes will only result in suffering and disintegration.

However, by understanding the processes currently unfolding, we can work with them, harness the new power and potential and use this to elevate our life, relationships, careers, finances, and even create a whole new life. At the same time, we can silently influence others to do the same.

The genetic shift

The questions are, what is a genetic shift[2]? How does the genetic shift influence our lives? How can we use the genetic shift to boost, even inspire our relationships, finances, and even a new life? What mindset, skills, and tools do we need to utilise the new power of the genetic shift, to our advantage?

To find answers to these questions, we need to start with the Human Genome Project.

The Human Genome Project

The Human Genome Project[3](HGP) was one of the great feats of exploration in history. The HGP was an inward voyage of discovery led by an international team of researchers looking to sequence and map all the genes -- together known as the genome -- of members of our species, Homo sapiens. The HGP gave us the ability, for the first time, to read nature's complete genetic blueprint for building a human being.

We discovered that our genes, as building blocks of our DNA, not only hold the blueprint of our physical health and well-being, but it also includes the blueprint of our mental, emotional, and spiritual/universal health, wellbeing, and functioning.

DNA success-blueprint

At the same time, we found that we all have an original unique DNA blueprint that holds the keys to who we are as our unique, authentic self, our health, wealth, happiness, success, and prosperity. This is our DNA success-blueprint.[4] Now it is undergoing a shift. This means new levels of health, wealth, happiness, and success are opening-up.

The question is, what must we know and what must we do to utilize all this power and potential?

Our challenge is to let go of the old while developing a whole new mindset that includes new skills and tools. Let's start with understanding more about our DNA blueprint.


Our DNA functions like a microchip that not only holds our personal information, but is also the connection between us, who we are, others, and all the power and potential of the Universe. We are not alone. On this level, everything and everyone is interconnected.

  • Your mobile phone

Imagine your mobile phone as an example. You are on the one side. The microchip or SIM[5] card in your phone connects you to your service provider and whoever you are calling on the outside. The microchip (SIM card) is your connection. You cannot use your cell phone without your SIM card.

We cannot function without our DNA blueprint or micro-chip.

  • Thoughts, feelings, and values

Our inner personal micro-world of thoughts, feelings, and values, connects to our external macro-world of relationships, finances, health, and happiness, in and through our microchip – our DNA. When we upgrade our thoughts, feelings, and values – we also upgrade or activate our DNA. When you upgrade your DNA connection, you also upgrade your level of health, wealth, happiness, and success.

When our DNA is fully connected, we are fully functional. Unfortunately, much of our DNA became disconnected. Today we only use about 10% of our original power and potential. Scientists called these disconnected parts, junk genes[6], because they didn’t know what it was for.

Junk genes

Genetic material mockingly called "junk" DNA initially appeared to have little or no function. However, it has now been found to be critical to an organism's evolutionary survival, according to a study conducted by a biologist at UCSD[7]. This includes a human being, like you and me, as well.

Most of us don't use all the features of our cell phones. In like manner, we also don't use most of our potential. The reason is, we became disconnected from the original DNA blueprint, and settled for less.

The signal is down, and we are left to survive with just the bare minimum. It is like having a bad connection and trying to figure out what is going on. A life of struggle and survival is inevitable.

People think this is normal and keep on doing more of the same. Now we are called to stop. We are called to reactivate our junk genes while recovering our DNA blueprint.

Reactivating your junk genes – recovering your DNA success-blueprint

Just imagine - you have the genetic code for fulfilling relationships, financial freedom, successful business, health, wealth, happiness, and success – and in some way you lost the connection. The signal is down. What would you do?

You would logically search for the signal, re-establish the connection and once again download the things that you want and need. There is no struggle, no suffering, no frustration, and no failure.

Just think, you can’t fail. Your success is guaranteed. You can’t fail at being who you are. You can fail at being yourself – your authentic self. It is as easy as that. This is what recovering your DNA success-blueprint is all about.

All you need is a new mindset and new skills and tools. We need a new understanding.

Junk genes, gene jumping, and genetic migration.

What we also learn is that our genetic material is not stationary. It is not always fixed. It is flexible with many moving parts. There are jumping genes, genetic migration, mutations, and even a genetic drift constantly going on. At the same time, we have clock genes that switch processes on and off at certain stages.

Clock genes

We all have clock genes that are constantly switching processes on and off, without us even being conscious of these processes.

For example, a primary school child has no or little sexual inclination and is seen as ‘innocent’. However, at about the ages between 12 - 14 years, clock genes activate the production of hormones that include sexual hormones. The tumultuous teenage years bring a whole new experience. But, it doesn’t stop there. These same clock genes that regulate hormone production, get switched off, the older we get. The middle-age age years arrive, which look different to the innocent child stage.

This is all regulated by our preprogrammed clock genes. More about this in a next article.

Ignorance is not bliss

Most people are ignorant about the processes going on within, and without. You can only work with what you know and have. They then struggle aimlessly with the effects and consequences of all that is going on. It is like neglecting to study the manual of your new, upgraded, cell phone. You then keep to the features of your old model. How sad is that?

Fortunately, as we become aware of these processes, we can also learn how to harness the power at our disposal. With the right mindset, skills, and tools we can not only empower our relationships, our finances, health, and happiness, we can even implement this in our businesses and careers. We can even create a whole new life.

All we need to do is to learn how to recover our DNA success-blueprint[8] and activate our dormant power and potential. More about this in the next article.

For now, we need to understand the power of the genetic shift and how to use this to our advantage.

Genetic shift

A genetic shift is a change in the genetic make-up and becomes visible in the expression of the new genetic code. In layman's terms, we can view the genetic shift as a power shift or genetic upgrade.

  • Upgrade

Just like you upgrade your cell phone, so humanity is undergoing an upgrade. In the process, new features, power, potential, and possibilities get activated. Just like you need to learn the new features on your new upgraded cell phone, so do we need to learn how to harness our newly released power and potential of the new upgraded version of who we are. At the same time, our values and ways of thinking and doing, change as well.

  • Powershift

The genetic shift is not only a shift in consciousness, a shift in awareness, but it is also a power shift. At the same time, as we mindfully and consciously shift our awareness, learn a new mindset, with new skills and tools, we also activate our DNA success-blueprint.

Just like your new cell phone has much more power and processes you can choose from, so does the 'upgraded’ version of you, which has access to much more power and processes.

We can utilise this power and potential to enhance our relationships, finances, health, and happiness.

In the next few articles, we will find out how to do this and achieve this kind of success in our lives. At the same time, we can influence others, especially those who are near and dear to us, to make the shift as well. We can even do this without saying and word. It is called – Epigenetics.


Epigenetics means that our DNA blueprint expression can be changed by changing our mental, emotional, and moral/spiritual programming[9]. Once we change our own programming, it spills over to others as well.

At the same time, as we join a new group, a new tribe, of committed solution-seekers, problem-solvers, pathfinders, and mapmakers. We can pick up on the new vibe and it rubs off on others and we change as well. We can use a school of fish as an example of Epigenetics.

Electromagnetic communication within a school of fish.

A school of fish functions as one unity, although it consists of thousands of individual fish. Communication takes place as electromagnetic impulses. This communication is even found on a genetic level. If one fish changes direction, it will reverberate through the whole school of fish, and the whole school changes direction.

At the same time, if one fish mutates or changes for the better, it reverberates through the school of fish. The whole school of fish can then mutate and change for the better.

This applies to human beings as well. If one person like you and me changes, we can influence, not only those who are near and dear to us but also the whole of humanity. You can change the global community, by just changing yourself for the better, just where you are and in what you are doing.

The next season of human existence

During the next season of human existence, we will not only be learning how to recover our original DNA blueprint, reactivate our junk genes, and lead an authentic life of health, wealth, and happiness, but we will also develop a whole new vision of a new kind of future, that looks different to the world we are currently living in.

Humanity is making the shift without many even knowing this. While some will make the leap – others will stay behind.

How to use the genetic shift to your benefit

Here are a few suggestions on how you can use the genetic shift to benefit yourself, relationships, finances, or even create a whole new life.

  • Choose, do you want to embark on this new path, or do you prefer to stay behind?

  • Commit yourself to this new path.

  • Do whatever it takes to move to the next level. Others will follow you.

  • Start with yourself. By now you should know the power of Epigenetics.

  • Develop a new mindset. This is what all the books and articles are about.

  • Enroll in courses that help you to recover your original DNA blueprint. There is a free starter course on the website.

  • Join the new group of pathfinders, mapmakers, and catalysts for good.
