Cell Memory

the sensitive cell

Every cell in the body is aware and carries our whole story, even from the first cell of conception.


Research shows that individual living cells are sensitive and responsive to thoughts and experiences, even when they are separated from the body. This primary perception is a cellular and whole body awareness, present from the beginning of development. It does not depend on a brain or central nervous system (Cleve Backster).


The egg that became you was physically present in your mother when she was a tiny baby, growing in the belly of your grandmother. Your cells can carry memory of experiences from that time. The egg’s experiential memory can bring a generational story from your grandmother's pregnancy and your mother's life into every cell of your body.


Water connects all of life and each living cell is composed largely of water molecules. Water has been shown to have unique properties, to subtly transform and respond to thoughts and circumstances. Recent work suggests that cellular memory and primary perception may be carried in water (Masaru Emoto).

Within living cells, most water is not fluid but bound to surfaces. This bound water has the special property of transmitting messages faster than the speed of light by jump conduction. With these special properties, it seems possible that water may be connected to consciousness (Mae Wan Ho).


Every cell in the body is descended from the original egg and sperm that came together at conception. Cells are particularly sensitive to emotionally charged experiences and to those perceived to endanger life. Therapeutic work with adults reveals that the developing embryo is profoundly affected by thoughts of abortion, by early twin loss, or by a previous miscarriage. What will be the effect on embryos and babies that have experienced being frozen at the beginning of life?


Within each cell, there are two kinds of DNA. One found in the nucleus the other in the mitochondria. At conception, nuclear DNA from the father fuses with nuclear DNA from the mother, creating a new nucleus of unique genetic material for the baby.

Each sperm is little more than a nucleus with a tail and carries no mitochondrial DNA. This means that all the mitochondrial DNA in the cells of the embryo comes unchanged from the egg and is identical to the mother’s, whose own mitochondrial DNA is the same as her mother, grandmother and great grandmother. In fact the DNA in the mitochondria in female cells, has been unchanged for millennia. In this way, genetic information has been carried through the female line, from the beginning of time, from the origins of humanity (Bryan Sykes).
