Your thoughts program your DNA

If my thoughts can program my DNA and my DNA communicates with The Ether, I should control my thoughts because that’s a clear example of how my outside world is formed by my inside world!

All of your cells, including your DNA respond to vibration and sound. Well, actually sound is vibration… Not only do they respond to sound but they respond to feelings and your unique sound vibration is the most powerful programming device for your unique DNA. Your DNA it’s a collection of all of the information from your ancestors but once it becomes you, it is synchronized to you and you are the one that turns it into your unique DNA! You do this through your thoughts, feelings, actions and words. Music is another way to program your DNA. Just music playing in the background is one thing but when you really get into the music and it brings up memories and emotions for you and, especially if you sing along to the music. Your DNA is always watching and listening to you, to learn your uniqueness and continues to program, write and rewrite, every second. They hear you see you and feel you celebrating this sound vibration. That is a sign to them that they should be like this. Do you see what I mean? DNA or like your little children, they don’t get programmed by what you tell them, they get programmed by what they observe see and feel you do, as they begin to emulate you… If a child just hears or sees you listening to music, that’s one thing but if the child Hears A song Come On or a certain type of music and you get excited, radiate happy emotions and start singing and dancing to this song, that’s one of the most powerful signs for a child to download and program that into their DNA! Take a moment and just imagine your child sitting there in a Delta, brain wave, state, completely open and ready to be programmed, just like a brand new computer or brand new phone, it’s waiting for your input and that input will stay there as a running program until it’s changed. It watches you, it waits for your response and it emulates you. Not only that, in that Delta State, the child is so open and ready to receive that it can download your thoughts, feelings, actions and energy!
The programming of our DNA is the strongest when we are children. When we are in that Delta State it’s pure and raw programming, just like programming a motherboard for a computer. Then, as we start to move to that theta state and start to form a little bit of reasoning, that’s when we add all the other software programs on top of that Delta based motherboard. So, as you can see the Delta programs are pretty hardwired and the Theta programming is a little more malleable, although together, they form the personality that you are made of and oftentimes will live with for the rest of your life. Unless, of course, you develop the desire for change and learn information like this. Then, it’s like going to a tech school to learn how to work on and reprogram computers. Now, you have the tools to reprogram your hard drive and install new software! Anyone can do this with the proper knowledge, the proper tools and most importantly, the willingness and desire for change! The stronger of these 3, is desire! Many people have reprogramed their minds with just the desire and will for change! Although, it is much easier and a smoother process with knowledge and the right tools… Anyone can learn this, anyone can do this, just ask me and I will show you 🙂 ⚛️

6 Fitness and Health Secrets You Must Know

Jason Latas Life Adventures


From the ”Journey to You” Series by Jason Latas 

At Summer Body Now, we believe in a holistic approach to health and wellness. We don’t preach boot-camps, harsh diets or the “no pain, no gain” methods. We believe that whole life wellness is a nice balance between health, fitness and getting to know yourself. It may sound funny but most people don’t know themselves as well as they think… For example, what foods make your body feel better, feel worse, burn fat, store fat, give you energy or bring you down? What time of day is best for you to work out? What body type are you? Why do you get tired about 30 minutes after lunch and want to fall asleep? Figuring out the answers to these questions will help you take a giant leap forward in your quest for…

Self Talk and Manifesting your Future

Does your mindset support you or hinder you? Does the self-talk in your head move you positively toward your goals or away from them? Self-talk or intrapersonal communication is the constant feedback that you give yourself throughout the day.

This is a very important question that I ask my clients. It’s truly amazing how many people are unaware of the amount of self-talk that goes on in their head at every moment of every day. Even when you sleep, you are “making movies” about your life! Are you the hero or the villain? Have you ever taken the time to really listen to the “voice inside your head”? I often ask, “If you were to write down all of the feedback that goes on in your head and read it back to yourself out loud; how would it make you feel?” Most people don’t think of it this way, but your subconscious does! Your subconscious mind is sitting in the background, listening to every word and the scary part is that after it hears it enough times, it starts to believe it! So ask yourself again. “Is my self talk supporting me of hindering me?


If you listen closely you may be very surprised at the amount of times you harshly judge yourself and put yourself down. Now if listen even closer, you may find that it’s not even you talking…it’s a replay of what others have said to you and you believed. A lot of the standards that we judge ourselves by are actually opinions from other people in our past that we listened to and then chose to agree with. Notice that I used the word chose. It is always your choice whether to believe or not believe someone’s opinion of you. As soon as you agree with them you have made the choice to take on that belief system and make it yours. This is not uncommon when you make a choice to change your life for the better and someone else is jealous of you… It is very important to remember: “Those that have abandoned their dreams will tend to discourage yours.”

Even advertising has a tremendous effect on our choices. The first goal of advertising is to make you feel a sense of lack or fear and a need to have that product or service. Remember that you have the choice to either accept and agree or disagree and move on and this choice will profoundly affect your inner happiness.

Often, if we listen close enough we will hear things that our parents, siblings or friends said many years ago when we were a child and as a child we chose to believe it. It doesn’t matter that they may have been mad and didn’t even mean what they said; we chose at that time to believe it and agree with it and it became a truth to our subconscious mind. It is amazing how many things we “say” to ourselves every day in our self talk and don’t even stop to realize that it is old, out of date and not even true. The challenge is that we have been doing this so long that it is just habit and we don’t even know we are doing it!


The most important thing to remember is that you can start changing all of this today! You can make the choice to erase the old “recordings” and begin to reprogram your subconscious mind to a new and better soundtrack! It takes time, but if you truly concentrate and want to change, you can do it. At first you will need to identify all of the times that your thoughts do not support you and consciously make the effort to rephrase the thought in your mind. It will take time and practice and you must not get discouraged because in due time you will become your own best cheerleader! Supportive and encouraging self-talk will become so natural to you to that it will actually start to feel unnatural to say anything negative about yourself. You will be amazed at how, instead of putting yourself down for a “mistake”, you will actually start to learn from the “life lessons”!

As with anything good in life, it takes practice but anyone can do it! So don’t be afraid to pick yourself up, dust yourself off, pat yourself on the back and say “Great Effort”!

Here’s to your success!!!

Intense physical exertion can be a portal to other dimensions

I’ve been a wellness coach and an adventure guide for almost three decades and have taken myself and my clients to some pretty amazing and extreme places… Whether it’s biking up #Haleakala crater in #Maui, climbing #Kilimanjaro or maybe just an intense set of hill sprints at the park, like I did this morning; All of these have the ability to increase the threshold of your human #performance, but also take you to places that most people will never see. I’m not just talking about pretty views, I’m talking about #portals to other #dimensions.
You are made up of #atoms (something I think we can all agree on) and atoms are vortexes of pure energy and #limitless #potential. ⚛️
These little atoms can build everything from rocks to the squishy stuff inside your body, like your liver or your brain…
Let’s go back to our #science and #physics books in grade school. Atoms, you see are 99.99999 percent #space and pure #energy, yet a very, very miniscule amount of so-called “mass”.
In fact, those #electrons that we saw in our textbooks as a nice little black dot, have never been seen. We have evidence that they exist, so we gave them a name… Those little electrons don’t travel around in neat little circles like they did in our textbooks, they exist anywhere at any time inside that atom. They exist in pure potentiality (superposition of several eigenstates) and the only time that they seem to appear as a particle is when we observe them (collapsing the wave function).
Again, they seem to exist as a pure energy wave and only appear as a particle upon observation…
Pause here for a moment (or a week) and think about that.
These pure little energy #vortexes (atoms) are what you are made of…
Many physicists believe that these little energy vortexes inside of our body contain miniature black holes that are portals to other #dimensions… I have traveled through some of these portals in deep, deep meditative states. Although there is another way that I have activated them and also helped some of my clients do the same. I’ve noticed, over the years that taking my body to physical extremes, such as climbing a very high altitude Mountain with very little oxygen and or intense exercise that literally pushes my body beyond what most humans think they can do, puts me in what I can best describe as a hyper gamma state of existence. Kind of like when the Road Runner pushes that Anvil off the cliff onto the coyotes head and he is spinning with little birds chirping around his head, lol 🙂 Yes, I see the swirling, I see the stars and the flashes of light, but I literally feel like I’ve got one foot in this Dimension and one foot Beyond the Veil… This feeling can last for several hours or if I’m in a remote location like Kilimanjaro or the savannahs of Africa, it can last for days until it’s interrupted. I also, always notice that this is like leveling up in my spirituality. After these experiences, everything in my physical world changes, just a little bit. My meditations get more intense and I find that it is easier to drop into walking and awakened deep states of #meditation 🕉️.
Long story short, I have found that taking your body to #extreme states of physical exhaustion through physical exertion can lead to some pretty epic spiritual experiences…
There are many, many tools out there for experiencing your energetic body, this is just one of them that I have found to be extremely profound for me.
Keep looking, keep searching, the journey is amazing, we have #magicalbodies and live in a magical world!

I had the most amazing, healing meditation today

Up early, at the gym, waiting for my client to arrive. 30 minutes later, I realized that they probably slept through their alarm, which usually means they were catching up on some much-needed rest. Expensive rest, but much-needed 🙂
I had already stretched and did a few exercises, but lately, I haven’t been very motivated to be in the gym. I have been more motivated to be outside, in nature. With this in mind, I left the gym and headed for a short drive up to the mountains by my home for a hike up to one of my favorite small Mountain Lakes. The closer I got to the trailhead, the more intense my emotions became as though I couldn’t get to that Lake soon enough!
As I started the hike, I could feel an intense energy overcome me and I literally felt as though I was walking into another dimension. I felt as though I was a piece of silly putty and some larger Force was molding me and folding me inside out, again and again and again. The further up the trail, the more intense this emotion and feeling, as I just went with it, without judgment and fully enjoyed this amazing, feeling and moment in time.
As I got up to the lake, I found my favorite bench in the shade, overlooking the lake and was excited that no one was there and even more interesting, there seemed to be almost no one else on the trail or around, making it extra peaceful and quiet this morning.
As I sat on the bench, I dropped, almost immediately into a deep state of relaxation and my mind started to travel beyond this dimension.
At one point during my meditation as I was just observing Energies swirling as I drifted through the cosmos, I saw a vision as though I was looking through my eyes and I could see my hands touching someone else’s forearms in front of me.
I was gently holding energy points on their forearms and helping them learn to circulate their Chi. After sometime of watching the energy circulate into a Vortex between our arms, I realized that I was actually working on myself and that both of these figures in my vision wear me! (Years ago, after my divorce, I developed some emotional blocks in my forearms that were very debilitating. I was told by several wise Souls that it was from, the feeling of failure and not being able to hold on to my children).

At that exact moment, I heard a small russel in the leaves of the scrub oak tree behind me and heard something bounce off two branches before leaping from the tree and hitting me on top of the head, lol!
while still in my meditation, I smiled ear-to-ear and had comical visions of Isaac Newton sitting under the apple tree. As I gently came out of my meditation I looked up and around me and realized that there were no trees above my head and that the small Oak that this Acorn had come from was several feet behind me, so that Acorn had to bounce twice on different branches and then leap off the tree perfectly to hit me square on top of the head!
At that point I opened my eyes to realize where I was, because normally during meditations in nature, I check out so completely that I forget where I am and when I come back it’s like I’m Awakening into a whole new experience. As I looked behind me to the tree, I noticed a large granite rock, sitting under the tree, almost begging me to come sit on it. With a complete childlike Joy, literally like a kid playing by the lake, I went back and sat on Top of the Rock in the shade, overlooking the lake. At this point, I closed my eyes and literally felt a motherly like love from this huge granite rock, like Mother Earth was giving me a hug and welcoming me back, like she had missed me deeply.
I quickly, dropped into another deep state of euphoria that could have lasted hours or minutes, I don’t know. All of the sudden, a bird started chirping. A bird that I have never heard before up there. Its chirp actually turned into what sounded like a tone, with a steady beat, almost like the steady ping coming from a submarine. as I sat deeply drifting in my meditation, observing the waves of energy pulsing throughout my body, it appeared and sounded as though that steady beacon was coming from deep inside my head at the base of my brain. It’s as though that Beacon was sending a steady signal to all of my cells in my body to wake up and deeper signals that I couldn’t fully understand as it traveled into my past and was healing a dormant part of me that I had suppressed long long ago. As I just sat and internally observed this shift, I could see that a deeper part of me had just been healed. I didn’t ask what it was, I just sent it love and let it slowly drift away as that space was then filled with this deep, nurturing love from Mother Earth.
As I slowly came back into my body and awareness of the beauty around me, I walked back to the bench where my water bottle was sitting and noticed the crown of the acorn sitting perfectly, right next to my water bottle. As I picked it up and looked at it, I noticed that it resembled the crown of Buddha…
Hmm, he’s been showing up a lot for me lately…
As I picked up the acorn top and descended down the trail, it served as a gentle reminder that many of the obstacles that are holding us back in life are suppressed emotions that we hold in our body. and also as a deep reminder that we don’t need to hold this emotional baggage and we have the ability to heal ourselves and:

Let that shit go!✨💜

Stress and your breathing…

Stress has its uses and is what actually causes our genome to adapt, evolve and get stronger!
Although, we’re not meant to remain in the state of chronic stress…
Our amazing and magical body is designed for balance and thrives when it is in homeostasis (a state of balance)…
Our autonomic nervous system is amazing and unbelievably efficient at keeping us safe and managing literally thousands of chemical reactions in the Split Second when we need it. The challenge is, it’s designed to turn on when we need it and off when we don’t. Chronic stress is behind virtually every imbalance and disease in humanity. This happens when our sympathetic nervous system turns on and never actually turns completely off. As opposed to a light switch, we treat it like a rheostat that is always on, just at different varying degrees… Our sympathetic nervous system turns on when an event happens and stays on as long as we keep thinking about that event and often never really gets turned off because we encounter another event that we feel is threatening or we keep imagining threatening events and stay in a state of drama… There are many reasons for this and I find, that often, just explaining these processes to my clients helps them calm down and realize that 95% of their stress is purely in their mind.
We need to remember that a small amount of stress can be okay but living in a state of constant stress keeps our body in a constant state of reaction and breakdown as opposed to rest and healing.
When you feel stressed, take a few minutes to close your eyes, calm down and gently breathe through your nose, to the base of your stomach. This will actually send a signal to your central nervous system that you are not in danger and help relax your body. Give it a try, throughout the day and you will be amazed how much better you will feel. 💜✨🕉️

Have your Fitness Goals Plateaued?

Were you seeing progress in the beginning and now it has faded or totally hit the brakes? You’re not alone so don’t be discouraged!

You’re body is built for survival and is a master compensator when it comes to change… It’s your body’s job to learn, adapt and overcome, to keep you alive.

You remember when your current routine kicked your butt and you struggled through but that same workout doesn’t seem to push you anymore. Or you were a regular in that class and counted the minutes until it was over but now can crank it out like it’s nothing.

Do you remember the last time you were out of breath during your workout?

Do you do the same routine every time?

Do you workout at the same time every day?

Do you eat the same thing every morning?

Are you doing multiple workouts a day but don’t feel it anymore?

Are you bored with your gym? Studio? Trainer? Routine?

If you do the same routine, every workout, your body will get used to it and settle into the “norm”. If you’re just not feeling it after your workout anymore, it’s called adaptation and it means you need to mix it up and keep your body guessing and “growing”.

Your body will adapt to tasks that you do on a regular basis. This is good because you can learn and become proficient at many things; although if you want your body composition to change, you need to keep changing your routine.

Try a different class, one that challenges you and makes you work. Mix-up your weight routine, mix up your reps etc… I rarely have my clients do the same routine for more than a few workouts and I often mix-up all of their workouts so their body doesn’t know what’s coming and has to adapt to new stimulus.

You can train the same muscle groups, many different ways… Lower the weight and raise your reps – Raise the weight and lower your reps – Use different exercises for the same muscle group – train your muscles from a different angle – Use free weights one day and machines the next… There are so many different variations that you could mix up your workout virtually every time you’re in the gym. The trick is to Just Do It! You will be amazed at how mixing up your routine can bust you out of that rut!

Wheat Belly

Is it just me or are more and more people becoming sensitive to wheat? Everywhere we look, we see gluten free options and more and more people avoiding the staple grain of our ancestors or grains altogether…

Many people do have Celiac disease, where their bodies cannot assimilate gluten and it actually causes an autoimmune response and other’s that are Gluten intolerant (there is a difference). Although there are more and more people that get a “wheat belly” and inflammation every time they eat wheat. What’s going on?

Well, the wheat we eat today is not the same stuff that our grandparents ate. Back in the 60s and 70s science was out to feed the world (a great cause) and produced wheat that could produce 10 times the traditional yield. It was created through cross breading with wheat and wild grasses from across the world. Thousands of experiments were implemented, using chemicals, pesticides, fertilizers and even radioactivity to produce mutant and hybrid plants.

The challenge is, with every new breed there were minute biochemical changes in the new offspring; small amino acid and protein changes that were though to be of no concern to human health. Amylopectin is one of those “small changes”. It’s a starch that will, not only spike your blood sugar but stimulate your appetite. Gliadin is another (gluten) protein found in modern wheat and is also an appetite stimulant that will actually stimulate your brain’s opiate sensors! Even the Gluten in today’s wheat is slightly different than that of the old ancient grains…

If you get “Wheat Belly” when you eat wheat or other grains, you should educate your self about the difference between Gluten Intolerance and actual Celiac disease.

This is a great, in-depth Video explain:

As for me, I’m just going to skip the wheat and keep my grains to a minimum…

High Protein, Gluten Free, Pre-Workout Pancakes

This has to be one of my favorite pre-workout, breakfast meals! It’s fast, easy, high protein, nutrient dense and gluten free.

This recipe is for one large pancake and you can simply double or adjust the recipe for more…

Main Ingredients:

One medium sized, soft, mashed banana

ÂĽ cup of rolled oatsMyCollage_0

2 eggs

Coconut oil


½ tsp Pure Vanilla Extract

Organic maple syrup

ÂĽ tsp of Stevia or Xylitol so you can use less syrup

Raw nuts and berries

Almond Butter

Whey protein

With a blender: Blend the dry oats, on med until powdered, add eggs and banana on low and mix until thoroughly blended. Make sure you don’t blend too fast or you will froth the eggs.

Or, without a blender: Mash the banana in a bowl, add the eggs and continue to blend with a fork and then add the oats as you continue to blend…

Add coconut oil to a pan, on medium heat. The pan is ready when a drop of water dances on the pan. Pour mixture into pan and wait until you see a few bubbles in pancake and it’s brown on bottom, Flip and cook until done. I like mine crispy!

I like to add nuts to the mix and top with almond butter and berries, then drizzle with organic maple syrup. I wash it down with an organic non-denatured whey protein drink for extra protein before my workout!

Try it out and create your own custom blend!

Eat Right, Train Hard and Live Life to the Fullest!

Staying Fit Over 40 and Dangerous Visceral Fat

If you miss the days when you could buckle down on diet and exercise to drop a few unwanted pounds within a reasonably quick period of time, you’re not alone. Older adults, especially women, face physiological changes that can promote weight gain and, even worse, muscle loss.  I know, Talk about a midlife crisis.

Once women reach 40, their likelihood of becoming overweight or obese sharply rises. In fact, about 68 percent of women aged 40 to 59 are overweight or obese–a 17 percent increase compared to women between the ages of 20 and 39–according to data from the 2003-2004 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES)). Hormonal changes may be to blame, researchers suggest.

Everyone has some subcutaneous fat but the dangerous fat is the visceral fat that hides in-between your organs. Visceral or “deep” fat wraps around the inner organs and spells trouble for your health. How do you know if you have it? If you have a large waist or belly, of course you have some visceral fat but if your stomach protrudes and is tight too the touch, it could be a sign of visceral fat. Visceral fat drives up your risk for diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and even dementia.

Visceral fat is thought to play a larger role in insulin resistance which boosts risk of diabetes more than other fat.  It’s not clear why, but it could explain or partially explain why visceral fat is a bigger health risk.

A large study conducted by the International Menopause Society found that hormonal changes in women alter the way the body distributes fat in the body, making it more likely to accumulate in the abdomen as visceral fat. Visceral fat worsens existing  hormonal changes by acting as an endocrine organ itself, pumping out hormone-like compounds that increase inflammation and the risk of insulin resistance related to type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

Another study from the Mayo Clinic investigated what was going on at the cellular level during menopause by comparing fat tissue of pre- and post-menopausal women. They found the two enzymes that work to produce and store fat were more active in the postmenopausal women, increasing their risk of having a higher body fat percentage (3).

How to battle the middle-aged spread?

Exercise intensely. Engaging in exercise, especially resistance training at high intensity, helps stimulate muscle growth, which in turn boosts metabolism and burns fat. Studies show that physically active women who enter menopause are leaner than sedentary women and have a decreased risk of developing metabolic disease (4).  What’s more, postmenopausal women who exercise daily maintain their weight while those who have lower activity levels have been found to have increased body fat, mostly around the midsection (5).

Eat a balanced, protein-rich diet. What you eat can also influence midlife weight gain. A study with 17,000 postmenopausal women assigned to either a control or a diet group (who were encouraged to eat healthy, balanced meals) found that those in the diet group had less severe menopause symptoms and were three times more likely to have lost weight (6).

A diet lacking essential nutrients and high in refined carbohydrates and empty calories will accelerate the aging process including age-related weight gain. Instead, eating a balanced diet with the right amounts of high-quality protein  can stimulate muscle synthesis and boost metabolism, turning the scale in your favor.

For the working Executive or traveling sales person, I recommend high protein meal replacements. They are great to fill you up before a business lunch or dinner and can help you get through airports without grabbing high calorie and processed foods. (contact me for recommendations).

Hold on to muscle. Loss of muscle is a common result of the aging process with women losing about 1 percent of their lean body mass per year after age 40 if they aren’t physically active (7). Because muscle is more metabolically active than fat, a muscular body composition burns more calories and uses fat tissue for fuel rather than stored energy. Eating a protein-rich diet and engaging in muscle-building exercise helps establish a healthy balance of fat and lean body tissue in the body.

Get quality sleep. According to the National Sleep Foundation, up to 61 percent of postmenopausal women have issues with falling asleep or getting enough quality sleep most nights . A major reason for this loss of sleep is due to instances of hot flashes. Hot flashes can disrupt sleep because body temperature drastically increases, leading to discomfort and waking. Consequently, lack of sleep has been associated with increased levels of the hunger hormone, ghrelin, and decreased levels of the satiety hormone, leptin, leading to overeating and weight gain.

To improve sleep quality, it’s best to avoid caffeinated beverages before bedtime, follow a regular sleep routine, and exercise during the day. If sleep issues still persist, it’s best to see your doctor for further guidance.

Make sure to get enough fiber. Middle-aged women commonly face gastrointestinal changes caused by fluctuations in hormones that lead to bloating and sluggish intestines. These feelings can affect appetite and energy level–two important aspects of staying on track with diet and exercise goals. To support bowel health, drink plenty of water throughout the day and eat sufficient amounts of fiber. In addition to getting fiber from whole grains, beans, fresh fruits and vegetables, supplement your diet with extra fiber to reach the recommended 25 grams per day.

While there may be additional challenges when trying to lose weight midlife , sites like can provide you with the tools to alter your lifestyle and reach your weight-loss goals. They specialize in coaching over 40 men and women through diet and exercise programs individually designed for  your unique situation and body type.
