How nurture becomes your nature
From the moment you are born – and some say even before that – you are absorbing everything your parents or authority figures around you believe, think, feel, fear or love about their world and about you.
It’s a process that continues up to the age of 7 years old without question or analysis because in those formative years the human mind has no power of discernment. That means whatever you were told becomes your truth. So if you were consistently told that you were “stupid” or that the world is “unsafe” or made to feel unworthy or unloved, these messages become part of your core beliefs.
That means every experience gets logged in the library of your subconscious mind and gets wrapped in an emotional narrative. The experience/emotion combo is the building blocks of your core beliefs.
At around 8 years old the ability to discern begins to develop and this facility serves you well throughout your life either positively or negatively depending on the quality of your core beliefs.
