What’s In Your DNA?

manifestors DNA: consciously create realityDid you know you can get your dog’s DNA tested for like $65?

It’ll tell you the different breeds making up their ancestry. Cool, right?

We just sent in Sadie’s cheek swab a few days ago.

In anticipating what the results will say about her heritage, it made me wonder what’s in my DNA.

But then I realized I don’t need a test to tell me what I’m programmed with.

I feel it every day, in every cell, in every breath …

… my DNA reads “Inspire Conscious Creators.”

(There’s no ACGT code in mine, I’d bet money. It has to be all ICC.)

Because helping create realities is what I’m all about. By that I mean sparking your interest in your manifesting powers is my idea of a good time.

I talked with someone yesterday who said his life’s work is to support aspiring authors.

Others have devoted themselves to understanding universal mysteries, teaching our youth, or the art of managing crap. Some are devoted to making us laugh, making money, or making music.

When Sadie’s DNA test comes back it may say she’s programmed to “herd the group” or perhaps “protect the family.”

Maybe she’s wired for “keeping out intruders” or “hunting for food.”

It’ll be fun to see hers, but I know mine is all about inspiring conscious creators.

My building blocks are law of attraction and alignment and all things manifesting. I’m wired for magic, possibilities and empowerment.

Does it make you wonder what’s in your DNA?

Maybe yours is coded for Love, or Laughter. Or a combination – perhaps Grow and Experience.

Maybe you were born to write, or build, or sing.

It’s good to know in order to walk our most joyful and authentic path.

(In fact, here’s helpful advice from Abe to a singer/songwriter whose career isn’t happening.)

If you don’t already know, try these questions to help get clear what you’re programmed for:

  • What are you all about?
  • What’s your idea of a good time?
  • What do your traits and characteristics indicate about your nature?
  • What could you not not do even if you tried?

I’d love to hear if you care to share. (Include a link to your ‘life’s work’ if you like!)

In the meantime, any guesses on Sadie’s makeup?

Here are a few photos and key markers: she’s tall, lean, and weighs 65 pounds.

Her personality is intelligent, relaxed, and curious.

She’s not overly protective, but yesterday she did stalk her brother in the backyard. (So she might have Sneaky in there somewhere.)

I hope you enjoy this invitation to consider your own programming and purpose, to ensure you’re living it fully.

    Thank you for your wonderful response. It was just what I needed to hear. I can definitely see the Great Pyrenees in Sadie now, but didn’t think of that (though I did see collie). Whatever combination, she’s perfect!

  • Okay, the results are in!
    Apparently she’s got Great Pyrenees on one side and Collie on the other. With a mix of possibly Australian Cattle Dog and Saluki in small amounts.
    I didn’t know Great Pyrs were known for intelligence … I always thought she’d have picked that up from whatever type of herding breed she had in her. And I can see the Saluki potential making her so lean.
    Such fun to see this stuff about the ones we love!! 🙂

  • I’m getting such interesting guesses in my inbox on Sadie’s heritage! Emily, I have a sneaking suspicion you’re pretty close.
    And I LOVE that you not only KNOW you’re here for healing and inspiration – but you’re already LIVING it!!!
    Ooh – just got goosebumps!! 🙂

  • Emily says:

    I love this way of looking at it!
    I would say my DNA is for healing and inspiration. I am wired to heal and ease the pain of others, and I work to inspire people to live their lives more consciously, and with more joy and passion.
    And I would guess Sadie has some border collie in her, and maybe some golden retriever. 🙂 She’s a cutie!

  • Carolyn, Maddie sounds like such a treasure of a companion.
    And indeed, I see the similarities in Sadie.
    I think you just did the most powerful thing for getting your energy aligned to welcome Maddie back.
    That is to love, enjoy and appreciate her.
    I don’t see how you could possibly improve on that energy. 🙂
    I don’t think you don’t need to be proactive at all. Just RESPOND to the inspirations/nudges you get. The ones that are so clear you wouldn’t even think of not doing it. The ones that feel good to answer.
    I think of it as a responsive thing – responding to guidance – rather than being proactive about trying to put yourself in the right place at the right time.
    Just enjoy thoughts of your sweet girl, trust that everything’s working out perfectly, and follow any inspirational taps on the shoulder you get from Universe.
    Thanks for posting about Maddie, Carolyn. She’s a pleasure to hear about.

  • Carolyn says:

    I had to write when I saw your pictures of lovely Sadie. She looks so much like my beloved Maddie who died less than three months ago. Maddie’s coloring was reversed – gold with white – but her face was very similar with the white blaze down her nose. Maddie was so intelligent, well-behaved, and, while loving her ‘pack’, not in the least needy. Low-key, relaxed – a perfect match for two introverts – we understood each other perfectly. Slow to warm up to strangers, protective but not aggressive. Always responsive, we could walk her unleashed through the neighborhood or on trails. She was definitely more herder than retriever, giving us a friendly nudge from time to time and clueless if we threw a frisbee to her. “Why are you throwing that thing at me?” she seemed to say. She wanted to herd the animals she saw on TV, which was hilarious. We figured she was mostly shepherd/collie with maybe some golden retriever. Would’ve loved to have had her DNA story. Reading about English Shepherds, I found the description suited her temperament. I miss her terribly. (Tearing up now.) I’m hoping she will come back to us but I want her to be exactly the same, which of course can’t happen. I keep scanning the local rescue website (not ready to go in person yet), but so far nothing like Maddie. I know the Universe can bring us the perfect match (it was wonderful synchronicity when I found Maddie), but I’m wondering how proactive I need to be. I know I’m more in the missing her vibe than finding our next companion, and I realize I need to get my energy right. Any suggestions? Love your blog.

  • Oh, Princess Kitty has such a nice ring to it, though! Let’s go with that!
    And you’re so right, Your Highness, that we can be whatever we choose to be.

  • Kitty says:

    Our dog, a rescue from down South, Lucky-boy, looks like a golden retriever got his Wisdom Panel back and showed three-quarters pit-bull. Which I like to say, Ï pity that pit-bull that looks like him. Total mistaken identity.
    Sadie looks like one sweet shepherd.
    My grandmother told me I was a direct decent of King Roderick Çonnor, the last Great King of Ireland. So that’s my DNA story and you need not address me as Princess Kitty….LOL
    So glad I learned from you, I can be whatever I want whenever I want….

  • Elizabeth, I love your combo!!! LBW. Love Beauty Wonder.
    THAT’S cool!
    What a wonderful program to go through life with. 🙂
    I can see where Aussie Shepherd would come up for Sadie … I wouldn’t be surprised to see some of that in her results. And that stalking behavior would be consistent with a herding shepherd, right?

  • Elizabeth says:

    Mine is: Love + Beauty + Wonder.
    That face! Sadie is adorable. (No guesses here. I am a very bad guesser of dog breeds. Except mine. Although she does look a teeny bit like an Australian Shepherd that used to live across the street from me.)

  • That is funny, Ming! (That your parents insisted you are 100% Chinese despite what your test results said.)
    (My parents sent in their DNA test, too. I’m looking forward to their results!)
    And I SO get that about you … that you’re all about helping the animals. (Oh, I just got goosebumps!)
    For those who don’t know Ming’s work, you can find it here:
    I’m also highly intrigued by all the “junk DNA” we have and how the spiritual teachers talk about our “codes popping” as expansion continues. Have you heard anything like that?

  • Ming says:

    Manifestors DNA Chain that is one very cool picture. I got my DNA tested through National Geographic and I have to say I was completely shocked! Here I thought I was just this one asian ethnicity. When I tried to tell my parents they wouldn’t even speak to me or listen because I was told I was 100% chinese. Well my DNA said otherwise way otherwise.
    NOW, being a spiritual being, my DNA would probably and hopefully come up to something similar to yours.
    I am all about helping the animals and the planet. Not only that being open to THEM to teach me, and they do every day.
    Thanks for this post and having me remember my DNA 😉
