The Key to Enlightenment


Enlightenment. It’s been the focus of some of the greatest minds throughout history. Thousands have dedicated their lives to its pursuit. Images come to mind of monks on meditation cushions, nuns kneeling in prayer, shamans living in the wilds of the Amazon. And while these representations of enlightened individuals may be accurate, they also imply it is reserved for a privileged few. And while these representations of enlightened individuals may be accurate, they also imply it is reserved for a privileged few.


Wrong. Enlightenment is available to all willing to dedicate the time and effort necessary to achieve it. It doesn’t require a lifestyle incompatible with the modern world, and its rewards are not limited to spiritual knowledge enjoyed by mystics.


They can also be reaped in a life-changing scientific discovery, the preparation of an exquisite meal by the inventive chef, or the creation of an inspiring artistic masterpiece. Enlightenment promises everyone the possibility for innovation, extraordinary creativity, and inner peace.


The pursuit of enlightenment can be accelerated by awakening the higher brain. When our higher brain functions are engaged, we can change our lives spiritually and biologically. That requires restoring the brain’s health at the cellular level—and anyone who experiences anger, fear, jealousy, greed, and worry needs to do this.


Fortunately, it’s not as hard as it may seem. Brain researchers now know that we can grow new brain cells and change the actual networks in the brain. Once we provide our neurons with specific nutrients lacking in our everyday diet and embark on stimulating new activities, we can establish new neural networks that help transform limiting beliefs and behaviors, and recapture long-lost feelings of joy, optimism, and tranquility.


In the language of neuroscience, enlightenment is the condition of optimal mitochondrial and brain functioning that allows us to experience wellbeing, inner peace and the urge to create and innovate. Mitochondria are the energy factories at work within your cells. They impact your moods, your vitality, your aging process, and even how you might die. They are also in charge of eliminating old cells and replacing them with new cells, a function that occurs without your conscious awareness.


Mitochondria are influenced by the foods we eat, the calories we ingest, the extent to which we exercise, and the inclusion of specific nutrients. You can gain access to keys encoded in your mitochondrial DNA by hacking your biofield—feel free to download this guide to get started. When you unlock this code, you break free of the illness-ridden journey that many Westerners suffer from cradle to grave. With your mitochondria restored, your cells will be able to express the genes that promote brain health and physical longevity, and you won’t have to continue perpetuating the ills and traumas of your family of origin.


Wishing you joyous holidays and a healthy New Year,




PS: The Four Winds is offering the Grow A New Body program described in the downloadable guide in January and February at Los Lobos Sanctuary in Chile. Please see below.
