I dreaded high school gym class.

We had a mean teacher who was big on conditioning training every Friday.

As we ran the mile, and did endless push-ups, sit-ups, burpees, and weight training, she informed us that we were conditioning our bodies for more strength, agility, and stamina.

And maybe some knee, back, hip, and joint problems a few decades later.

While conditioning training is more obvious on a physical level, our mental, social, emotional, and psychological conditioning begins in the womb.

Epigenetics is the study of how our genes are “expressed,” which is determined in part by our environment and our experiences.

Research has shown that trauma in animals can be passed down for 14 generations. In humans, studies have found that past events, experiences, and trauma can change the way our genes are expressed, affecting everything from physical health to how someone handles stress. Some of these traumas have been traced back to the time of the American Civil War.

From birth through age 7, our brain is operating in a different, slower frequency.

During this time in our development, the brain is in Delta (0–4 cycles per second) and Theta (4–8 cycles per second) frequencies — the same frequencies when we are in deep REM sleep or under hypnosis.

Everything that happens during these years is taken in by the subconscious mind and leaves deep impressions. This is why children absorb information so well, quickly, and easily.

Around 8 years of age, the frequencies increase to Beta brainwaves, which operate at 8–12 cycles per second. This is when our analytical, critical, and conscious thinking come into play and start to develop — overlaid on top of anything that was learned by the subconscious mind from 0–7 years old — including any trauma.

Childhood conditioning truly begins in the womb. Babies can hear and sense energy while in gestation. If a mother has a lot of outward stress, discomfort, or an environment that is not peaceful…
