My Dna Results but How Will They Match up to My Study of Genetic Memory?

Updated on July 27, 2018

Genetic Memory is a new and exciting look into how our dreams and phobias may be influenced by our ancestors!

We are but what dreams are made of.....

Now here's the thing. Millions of us have sent away for DNA kits to check their DNA.

What with Ancestry, MyHeritage and 23andme, there are lots to choose from. They are all pretty much the same, but I chose MyHeritage because it had just been updated and had a lot of good reviews.

I am adding one more step that not many people seem to think about.

Science is beginning to realise that not only do we pass on genes from our parents and grandparents such things as the shape of our noses, and our face,etc, they now believe that its possible to pass on memories from one generation to another.

And it definitely makes sense.

Why?

Genetic Memory

What is Genetic Memory?

Let's take a look at the study before we go any further. According to the scientific blurb, genetic memory is:

Psychology states that genetic memory is a memory that is present at birth, that exists in the absence of sensory experience. But is just incorporated into the genome over long periods of time.


In plain English this merely means that when a baby is born it is a clean slate mentally. But if genetic memory proves to be true, then that baby will have the memories, or maybe just one memory of an ancestor already filed away in his/her brain.

We already know that on the basis of instinct for example, children automatically know how to suck milk, cry when it needs a nappy/diaper change and when he or she is tired.

In a sense that is genetic memory.

But what we are talking about here is the possibility that maybe baby can 'see' a memory while dreaming, that has been passed down from an ancestor. For example;

A baby dreams of being on a ship, or driving a car. Of course we would never know they are doing that. And after the baby is born there is so much outside stimuli that it would soon be overlooked and just scrambled if you like, with his/her other memories.

But what if....?

Memories pass down through Genes
Memories pass down through Genes

Can DNA hold onto memories?

Scientists have always believed that memories must be made. Mothers teach their children to read and write, what to eat and so on. Throughout or lives we are constantly learning.

But now scientists do believe that some memories or information can be inherited biologically through the chemical changes in our DNA.

In fact many now believe that is where our phobias come from. Evidently according to scientific study, this is caused by a genetic switch that may cause it to 'stick'.

Talking about sticking, I have always believed it was possible that we do inherit memories, but I couldn't understand how or why.

Why just one particular memory? What made that one special over any other memory?

Then I had a thought. And it turned out that the scientists agreed with me!

Adrenaline affect on the body. And maybe a memory glue
Adrenaline affect on the body. And maybe a memory glue

Memories and Adrenalin.

I thought about it for a while and came up with one conclusion. Whenever we have a strong memory, its usually followed by a particular chemical flooding our body.

Adrenalin.

Whether its grief, happiness, laughter, fright or just spotting something that is so amazing, we stand back in awe. Adrenalin. It floods our bodies, acting like the glue that will stick that particular memory in your mind forever. Sometimes its a sequence of events, other times it can be a snapshot of something. And we don't always realise it until later when its stuck in our memory.

And scientists tend to agree with me! Or should I say, me with them!

Long story short we now know that it is possible to pass on memories.

Of course its not possible to remember something from a person who was old.

Why?

Because if you are remembering something your grandmother did, it will have to be before your mother was born, so that the memory can be passed on through the baby.

Dreams

Dreaming our ancestors
Dreaming our ancestors

Okay, so what's that got to do with me and my DNA?

Well, let me explain.

Over the years I have had some really vivid dreams. And most of them concern things and places that I have never ever been too. And more to the point I find myself doing stuff that I would never have thought of.

For a very long time I did wonder if I was experiencing reincarnation. The dreams that I was having were so real.

And in fact, some so bizarre that there was no way this side of hell I could possibly have read it, seen it or experienced it.

So genetic memory seemed to make more sense. Unless of course reincarnation is totally real and I am barking up the wrong tree!

We shall see.

How do my memories match up to my genes?

I won't bore you by going into deep detail about certain dreams that I have had over the years. As we all know, everyone dreams. But some dreams are much more real than others. And more to the point we remember them for years. These are the main ones that seem to have that extra special sparkle to them. Such as feeling, seeing, tasting and hot and cold.

  • I am in a cold country. There are tiny shops rather like in the alps when you go skiing. I walk around the shops buying ornaments and jewelry. Behind the shops are huge mountains. As I walk towards them I can feel the cold emanating from them. The rock is slate grey but glistening with ice. Its cold.
  • I am in India, walking through a market. I am an Indian lady. I am going to buy cloth and needles to sew and knit. I can see a wall which is overlooking the city. There is a man with an elephant, he is putting a rug on its back. It has tassels and a painted face.
  • I am Jewish. I am on a cart with other women being pulled by horses. We are going to a house. It has to be secret because we are not well liked around there. As we enter the house I can see a wall to my left that has a basket hanging from it, and it has a sort of hard flat bread in it, in slices. On the table are candles and food. There are men there. I am wearing a long skirt, with two belts? or maybe one belt tied round twice, and a scarf tying my hair back. I can smell the food.

There are other dreams too, but I can't pinpoint the exact area. Its always hot, there is the sea and beach. Not modern.

And there are other real type dreams but I can't say where or when, so I will leave them out.

So quick review.

Cold country, maybe alps? India shopping in market, and a Jewish meeting that has to be secret. Feels like 19th century but maybe later.

Now to wait for the DNA results!

We are such stuff as dreams are made on.

- Shakespeare

Or DNA Memory!

-Nell Rose.

At last! the results are back!

I received an email on the 1st of March stating it would take another week to get the results. So the next day I never bothered to check the email till later in the day, and guess what? There they were! Obviously finished early!

You can see from the photo below all my results. One thing you have to realize is that when you get your DNA results back they are just basic in MyHeritage Ancestry and 23andme. To get in depth info you need to down load them to Gedmatch. (see link below )

Here we go! Results!

England, Norway, Sweden, Lithuania, Latvia, Ukraine, Middle east. Now we need to check it out further.

What is Gedmatch?

Its a site where you download your dna results and they then can pull it to pieces to find out exactly where you come from after receiving the basic results from MyHeritage etc. Check out link.

How to download your DNA to Gedmatch made simple.

A little bit of this, a little bit of that.......

As you can see, its pretty straight forward. Obviously lots of north west. England etc. But as you can see there is even an Indian chromosome floating around in there!

So, a big tick for:

Jewish - Middle East -Iranian Jewish, Iraqi Jewish, Levant etc

West and east Mediterranean. Hot weather by coast.

Indian - South Asian....Yes I know its only tiny, but its there!

And last but not least.....

As it shows above. Norway and Sweden.

There is the Middle eastern one there too. Which I later found out to be in the Iranian hills.

Which is totally super cool!

Long story short...

Yes I know what you are thinking. Did I know these results through my family lines?

No, never. In fact as far as I knew we were 100 % English! The thing is, we had a missing grandfather. We had no idea who he was.

He swept in, got my gran in the family way, and disappeared. So when it turned out that I am over 15 % percent Norwegian or Swedish, that was one hell of a shock!

The Ukraine, Lithuania and Latvia was also confusing. Until a friend on facebook said;

'I bet you are Jewish! get onto Gedmatch!'

So I did. And I was.

Its fantastic. What I didn't say about the Jewish was, apart from dreaming it, I go to the Kotel site (Wailing wall) webcam most nights to calm my brain down before bed, after being on here most of the day!

Genetic memory huh? Who would have thought!

So what do you think? Genetic Memory? Or just a pie in the sky dream?

You decide!

      I got 90% German/French, 49.6% Ashkanazi Jew, 6-8% Irish-UK, and .6% Somali.

      The funny thing is that my grandmother comes from Poland but went to a French finishing school (she came from an aristocratic family), but that is not in my DNA results.

      Thanks Tim. I found myheritage to suit me and is the best one for jewish/arab, purely because they are based in Israel so more people doing it from that area will show up your line. the reason why ancestry and 23and me etc don't show the israel/arab line so much is because its mainly europeans and americans doing it. they have to base it on what dna they have in their database to check against. once you have done it, go to Gedmatch, upload for nothing, and it will break down all areas. my Norwegian is a large dna chunk, still trying to find out really who and were. I did think it was my gg grandfather, still not sure.

      Hi, Nell,

      I read an article in Science News which said right now many of the data bases in these companies are not complete with Native American or people of Africa. Also, I discovered from a few friends, somehow, they connect us all to Africa. That's kind of cool because He made us all in one place.

      But I know from my family I have descendants from the Lumbi tribe and African ancestry. (I suspect there is Asian Indian in there, Nell.)

      I'm waiting a few more years, but my Wife wants to do this. We probwill because she is 100 percent descended from strong willed folk. I do believe it is Vikings.

      But as soon as we do, you will be one of the first people I contact because your article was the most informative on the topic I've read in a good while.

      Much respect and admiration,

      Tim

      Hi, Nell,

      Love this.

      Now, I believe I know you from somewhere - we knew each other in India.

      My wife swears I must be of Indian descent because I love teas, spicy Indian food, and I can't get enough of turmeric. (many smiles, my friend.)

      Seriously, I believe there is some degree of credibility in these ideas. Scientists have proven that primates, including humans, tend to have an inherit response to any reptiles, even if the young primate has never seen one.

      I dream sometimes of India. I dream of an island nation as well. Neither of which I have been to in this life. My wife dreams of being a Viking, and she wants to visit Iceland, a place she has never visited.

      Yes, this was very interesting and well written with much to think about.

      Thanks, Nell.

      Sincerely,

      Tim

      YES YES YES! I agree fully with this theory, Nell! I actually just wrote an article about DNA results and spirituality, if you're interested. But as to the dreams being genetic memory...some of mine match up! Always dreamed of mountains, snow-capped. Most of my ancestors were alpine (Swiss, Italian Alps, lower germany and northern france that whole region). I've also had dreams of rocky cliffs and fields of heather (Scotland). And a dream of being a tall African woman floating down a river with women on strange boats paddling by me. I have DNA from North Africa...which could also be Egyptian, as I've had dreams about being a man in a white gown etching symbols into a temple wall that looked very Egyptian. Such a cool topic. I tend to believe reincarnation may exist in the form of DNA memory and inheritance.

      Hey girl, I see you're still kick'n them out . . . very impressive! Just check'n in on some old hubber friends and you're one of them! You introduced a very interesting theory for us to think about. I noticed you certainly have vivid memories of your dreams. It seems there could be something to the genetic memory premise . . . why not! Or memories of previous lives or a little of both! Anyway, after reading your article I want to take the test. It would just be fun to see. Take care my English friend!

      Very interesting.

      This year my wife started doing a degree in Psychology, and I think I've been as interested in what she's had to research as she has.

      One of the YouTube documentaries we watched was on 'What is human consciousness?" and was a presentation by one of the world's top neuroscientists (please not, NOT A THEOLOGIAN!)

      She argued that if life was simply a result of chemical processes then they should be able to find a part of the brain that triggers consciousness, there should be a part of the brain that 'sparks up' more than others.

      They ran tests in animals (Human tests are naturally banned) and found none! They couldn't find a place in the brain that was the 'seat of consciousness'

      That led them to say that Human consciousness occurs in all parts of the brain simultaneously, hence in a sense, our 'essence' (consciousness) must be separate to our physical being!

      I've also come across the idea that certain things, phobias can be transmitted genetically, but just think of the doors that open for discussion if evidence for a human soul can be scientifically shown, just like the study indicated!

      Personally, I'm having too much fun just doing the research into the family tree to go into the Genetics, I've already found Saxon and Viking roots!

      This was an interesting article to read. Like Mary said with regards to the birds and their hard wired DNA...it makes sense that we might also be hard wired in a similar way with regard to what makes us unique as individuals. Brothers and sisters who all have the same parents and pretty much the same background can be so very different. We inherit chromosomes from generations back. Your DNA results are interesting especially with regard to your dreams and their possible meaning.

    • Blond Logic profile image

      Mary Wickison 

      14 months ago from Brazil

      I think genetic memory does exist. If you look at birds, they have a more developed sense of instinct than we do. They have the ability to build, often quite elaborate nests without being shown, it's hardwired into their DNA.

      I think we have these innate abilities but they are so deeply buried, we haven't accessed them. Perhaps those flashes of reincarnation, you and others have are as you say a genetic memory. However, is it in our ancestral DNA or our species?

      If we, as the human race, had access to all the memories and thoughts of previous generations can you imagine what we'd be capable of?

      Much to ponder.
