As babies and very young children (and many believe even prior to birth), before we are even consciously aware of our world and our place in it, we are subconsciously programmed with our beliefs.
We are part of a rich or poor family. We are good or bad sleepers and eaters. We are good or bad natured. We receive hugs when we are upset. We are disciplined when we cry. We are comforted with food. We get in trouble when we spill milk.
The blank canvas doesn’t remain that way for long. We have absolutely no conscious filters. Babies absorb EVERYTHING verbal and otherwise. We are exquisitely tuned into the energy around us – good vibes and bad go right to our core.
Life gives us our stories. As we grow up and into our identities, these stories become the fabric of who we are.
