And I wanted to teach our students how to make that a skill. And we could measure them when they do it. And when you feel gratitude and appreciation and love and kindness and care, your heart starts beating in rhythm. It starts beating in a coherent pattern. When you start getting beyond matter and bodies and people and things and you take your attention and you open your awareness to space, to nothing, the brain gets super coherent. We've measured it thousands of times. And so we just got better at teaching the process and our students can create brain coherence and change their brain waves in four seconds, five seconds, nine seconds, 12 seconds, 15 seconds. It's a skill, they know how to do it. And when I say go into heart coherence, they know how to do that, they can do it for 45 minutes. And why is it important? Because so many times in our life we go unconscious and we disconnect. And when the heart is beating coherently, it produces a measurable magnetic field that can be up to three meters wide. That's the magnetic field that allows you to begin to spread your energy. And that energy is a frequency and frequency carries information. And now that energy carries the thought of your abundance. Can carry the thought of your wealth, because all thoughts have a frequency. The emotion of guilt, the energy of suffering cannot carry the thought of abundance or health, because it's not the same energy. And just like you could say, "I am healthy, I am healthy, I am healthy, I'm healthy" with your conscious mind. And if your body's been emotionally conditioned into unhappiness or pain that thought never makes it to your body, and there's no connection between the mind and body. So when people elevate their emotional states, like in a state of gratitude, the emotional signature of gratitude means the event has already happened. That means when you give thanks, you're getting something. So when you start giving thanks, your body's in a perfect state receiving. So we want people to change their energy and create this heart coherence and we want to measure them. We want to know that we can say to them, "You're doing it or you're not doing it". So we measured the energy of the room, because we started seeing people saying, "Wow, the energy is incredible." And so many of our events in the 19 different advanced workshops we did in the last five years, the energy in the room has always gone up. We measured the energy around people's bodies. If you're freeing your body from the chains of those emotions that keep you anchored from the past, you should go from particle to wave, from matter to energy, liberating energy and freeing your body. So we measured the energy centers of the body, because we teach our students that each one of these energy centers are centers of information.
They have their own frequency, they have their own intent, they have their own consciousness, they have their own glands, their own hormones, their own chemicals, their own individual little brains. And they're under the control of the autonomic nervous system. So people have to learn how to change their brainwaves to get into their autonomic nervous system to begin to reprogram these different energy centers. And I thought, "Well, people are healing, but let's find an instrument that shows us that those changes are actually scientifically based". So we found an instrument in Russia and we measured thousands of people's energy. We also have done measurements of immune regulations and we found that just a few times a day, 10 minutes a day for four days, just elevating your emotional state will strengthen your immune system by more than 50%. We've measured genetic changes. We've measured 7500 different gene regulations and our students have changed their genetic expression in four days. Genes that downregulate tumors and cancer growth, genes that are responsible for neurogenesis, not just making new connections but the growth of new neurons and responses to novel experiences and learning the gene that stimulates or down regulates oxidative stress and begins to cause the body to move back into balance. Anticancer, anti-aging, anti heart disease, anti stroke, anti neurodegenerative.
