Ecuador Shapeshifter

Here is some important information about relaxed concentration and how it can help us adapt and change.

Ecuador Shamans

Our home given to us by the Andean shamans.

Many visitors to Ecuador hear about the Shamanic Shapeshifters and misconstrue what this means.  During the years we lived and worked with Ecuador shamans, we learn what shapeshifting means.  Shapeshifters do change their shape, but not in the way often imagined.  Western medical advances in Epigenetics are beginning to explain how humans can literally change themselves from the genetic level up.  Bruce Lipton’s book outlined below helps explain this phenomenon.

Various types of relaxation routines, from meditation to listening to Baroque music helps integrate the different parts of the brain.  This relaxation reduces stress and fear.

The fearless state gives us more control over ourselves and allows us to benefit more from learning and change.

Biology of Belief by Bruce Lipton, Ph.D.

“If you could be anybody, who would you be?”

The above is the opening statement in the prologue of the book “Biology of Belief” written by Ph.D. and cell biologist Bruce H. Lipton.   Lipton’s book helps us understand the importance of eliminating fear and stress.

This book shares the results of his research on the mechanisms by which cells control their physiology and behavior.  That research concludes that a cell’s life is controlled by the physical and energetic environment, not by its genes.

He describes genes as molecular blueprints used to construct cells, tissues and organs.

The physical and energetic environment are the building materials.

Lipton goes even further. He says that the cell’s awareness and interpretation of physical and energetic environment are the contractors who read the blueprints and use the materials to build or tear down the cell.

This led Lipton to conclude that we can control our destiny simply by controlling our beliefs.

“Biology of Belief” introduces two areas of biomedical research, “Signal Transduction” and “Epigenetics”.

Signal Transduction is the process of biochemical signals and pathways that cause cells to respond to environmental cues.  These signals control cells and these signals are based on perception of reality.

The character of a cell is controlled not by the environment but by the perception of the environment.

Perceptions are thoughts or a bundle of frequencies created by what is often called the ego sense.

These perceptions are totally subjective and completely unique to each individual.   Take a ping pong paddle as an example.  If someone played happy games of ping pong every day with their friends, every time they see a ping pong paddle their cellular pathways receive signals that flood with neural transmitters that enhance energy and flood the person with a sense of positivity and well being.  Another person who was beaten with a ping pong paddle by their father… sees the same paddle and associates it with horror.  The body is flooded with enervating chemistry that can lead to poor health.

The science of “Signal Transduction” is the study of how our perceptions control our lives from the cell’s up.

“Epigenetics” means “Control above the genes”.  Epigenetics is the study of how perception of the environment signals, selects, regulates and modifies gene activity.

An article at the Genetics Home Research section of the US National Library of Health entitled “Can genes be turned on and off in cells?” explains that each cell in the human body turns its genes off and on and only uses a fraction of its genes.

Most genes in a cell are repressed or turned off.   This gene regulation process allows cells to react quickly to changes in their environment.

The regulation comes when signals created by the environment activate proteins that bind to the gene and stimulate or slow down activity of a gene.

Meditation allows us to relax and reduce fear so we have more control over our perceptions.   This added control allows us to literally change ourselves from the genes up.

Effective thinking is assisted by regular relaxation practice.  This can be through meditation or listening to Baroque music.


We use three relaxation systems to create relaxed concentration at our Super Thinking + Spanish courses.
