Cellular memories may be developed through experiences of vicarious abuse (e.g., physical, emotional, mental, sexual, spiritual). (Pert, Candace, PhD. Molecules of Emotion. Audio Cassettes. NY: Sound Ideas, Simon & Schuster Audio Division, 1997.)
The pain of the woman’s childhood is imprinted on her cells. Until and unless she deals with her past, her feelings will tend to be out of proportion to the events that trigger them. (Roth, Geneen. When Food is Love. p 157. NY: Penguin Group, 1991, 1992.)
Stage 1 development is during 1st year of life; stage 2 begins about age 15. Development is shaped by the child’s experiences. Level of care, nurturing, and caregiver’s emotional state can impact development at the cellular level. (Pearce, Joseph Chilton. The Biology of Transcendence. p 42-46. VT: Park Street Press, 2002.)
