The ageing process is like the married couple next door — when young, they communicate well, but over many years the communication breaks down.
And as in relationships, says a new study, restoring communications reverses the ageing process, at least in mammals.
A series of molecular events in our body enable communication inside cells between the nucleus and mitochondria, also called “cell’s powerhouse”.
As communication breaks down, ageing accelerates. By administering a molecule naturally produced by the human body, scientists restored the communication network in older mice.
“Subsequent tissue samples showed key biological hallmarks that were comparable to those of much younger animals,” said David Sinclair, senior author on the study and Harvard Medical School Professor of Genetics.
Mitochondria generate chemical energy to carry out essential biological functions. As these self-contained organelles become increasingly dysfunctional over time, many age-related conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease and diabetes occur.
Sinclair and his team primarily focused on a group of genes called sirtuins. Previous studies from his lab showed that one of these genes, SIRT1, was activated by the compound resveratrol, which is found in grapes, red wine and certain nuts.
They studied mice in which this SIRT1 gene had been removed. While they accurately predicted that these mice would show signs of ageing, including mitochondrial dysfunction, they were surprised to find that most mitochondrial proteins coming from the cell’s nucleus were at normal levels.… Read the full article ···»
Ashtar: You Are Moving into the Golden Age!* – Ashtar On The Road Teleconference – December 10, 2013 by Susan LelandLit Corner | December 21, 2013 | 13:05
“Greetings Beloved Family! It is I, Ashtar and this entire Company of Masters and Angels, Guides and all Beloved beings from all Kingdoms of Planet Earth are here now with you, with us, on the bridge of The New Jerusalem! And there are others who are here. We are honored to be visited by the great Nelson Mandela, and St. Germain shall be speaking more on this, on the subject of his great, wise and wonderful gifts that he gave to Planet Earth.**
“But for now we invite you to join with us and to feel the energies of all of us here assembled, and of his, this beautiful, beautiful person. Well, he was in the body of a person, and we are welcoming him back as our brother, so stay tuned.
“Now I would comment on the general status, or shall we say, the state of being of Planet Earth because it’s in great shape! You may not think so where you are, particularly if you are feeling a bit of the bite of the cold upon your being. But all is well. It has never been this well upon Planet Earth, since the very beginning, and that is because you, Beloved Ones, have been holding the Light! You have been standing shoulder to shoulder with the Kumaras and with all of the wondrous ones who have been perhaps in a bit of a Higher Dimension than what you know as your 3D Planet Earth, but nevertheless they have been here and they have been joining in many, many ways with you throughout many, many of your lifetimes, in fact – in guidance, in support, sometimes in answer to your most fervent prayers and desires!… Read the full article ···»
(Translated from original language german)
My child, you are not in any race on earth. You will ascend, it is inevitable, because thy way is inevitably back to me. But it does not matter whether it is in this life or in a later incarnation. You have all eternity for it to remember, to grow and to develop your soul. But many of you will ascend in this life with or without a body into the 5th Dimension or reach a higher one. I see so many of you who have done a wonderful job on yourself or are still working on this. You will do it too, because time does not exist for it. There are so many – also young souls – who still need further growth and they will eventually get their chance.
The current winter solstice offers but for those who are so far along a good opportunity to get further on their way to me. The energies are very strong and favor much growth if you also take your work on yourself seriously. You know, only you are your own “savior”. No one can do this job for you, nobody can take this away from you. Ascension, this process, is a kind of reward for this necessary but good job.
A lot of old emotions, old pain still come up in you.… Read the full article ···»
MESSAGE FROM THE ANGELS
My dear friends, we love you so very much.
We know so many of you are so busy preparing for the holidays and yet we ask you to take a minute, sit still, and as you read this, focus upon the light in your own heart. Breathe, and as you do so, imagine that light is expanding beyond your bodies, out farther and farther until it ripples throughout the world. Imagine this light can touch the lost, the lonely, the abandoned, and overwhelmed. Imagine this light can wrap the grieving in a comforting embrace. Imagine this light that emanates from your hearts can soothe the hurting hearts, calm the angry, and bring hope to those who are on the verge of giving up. Breathe. Sit and focus upon this light inside of you and allow it to shine forth in all directions. Take a moment to feel or imagine your light illuminating not only the dark and lonely spaces within your own spirit, but also reaching out like sunlight, touching those in need with the gift of your Presence.
For indeed whether you feel the holiday spirit or not, whether you are filled with joy or crying with grief, whether you are surrounded by family and friends or whether you find yourselves in the depths of loneliness, you are this made of this very light.… Read the full article ···»
