Nature and Nurture: Before We Were Us

Before We Were Us

At our birth, we are new in human form but not in consciousness. In consciousness, our spirit has always been, the soul, alive in light. Born new in these bodies, we’re waiting to discover amazing, incredible things about this Earth and ourselves. The first human faces seen, the touch of another person, the sound of voices and activities around us help form our first impressions. We are accepting and innocent, non-judgmental but curious. As we grow, we experience a unique life only we can understand as we also take on others words, actions and vibrational energy around us.

As small children, we friendly accept other beings like us. We are not aware of differences in color, religion, political affiliation, etc. until something or someone makes us feel we should be. Before we became adults, before we formed alliances, opinions, oppositions and separation, we only understood the importance of connection. In that connection, there is unconditional love, acceptance, gratefulness and most importantly compassion for other human beings.

Maybe you heard a few things from a relative or family friend as a child that made you question the blind acceptance of others who believed or looked differently than you. In that instant, you made a choice to ignore, argue with or explore their opinions to decide for yourself. Children can sometimes be extremely honest and also brutally cruel to others who are different. Where do these thoughts originate? A myriad of things have an influence on our abilities to show and feel compassion for another. Our experiences with parents, siblings, close relatives, friends, social media, the entertainment industry, reality shows. The list is growing!

If you take all those distractions, judgments, and control dramas away to sit in a room with just the purpose of understanding one another, many conflicts can be healed.  When we can have honest, intelligent conversations flavored with integrity, compassion and a real purposes to heal a situation, we can learn to rise above the negativity.

Before any one told us we shouldn’t, as children we believed in magic. We knew we were spiritual beings who could feel, hear, see and know being in life was special. We were happy before anyone told us anything scary or mean. We were wondrous creatures who wanted to talk and walk before we could crawl. Inside every one of us who may feel fearful, sad, unworthy or defeated that incredible child still exists. The one who believed in fairies and dragons is still alive. That part of your soul that wants to dance, sing and feel the music for the first time.

If we can keep remembering who we really are in spiritual consciousness all the other things which weigh us down can fall away. Our hearts and minds can truly be reprogrammed by our ability to evolve the thoughts of separation and judgment into understanding how and why we thought we were apart in the first place. The fear we have nurtured has to be quieted and replaced by courage to change.

Even though it may seem otherwise most recently in worldly events, more people than ever on this Earth want peace between us all. When collective energy is given its true voice and power the momentum of real change will begin to grow louder, stronger and real progress will be known. Our spiritual oneness can far surpass what organized religion, rules and dogma have done to keep us separate. The love of our children and the legacy we leave with them should matter to each and every soul on the planet if we are sincerely working towards making this a better place to exist. It begins in the hearts and minds of everyone who feels empathy and understands the miracles of unconditional love and acceptance. These are the seeds we need to plant if we are to grow enough love to drive out anything which causes harm to our humanity and our evolution as spiritual beings. We can remember who we were when all we knew was love.

Thanks, Regina! I appreciate your suggestion as I was not entirely sure about the title as well. I added to it and hope this might work better. Please let me know if I should try again :-)

Hi Judi - Thanks for this lovely submission.

 I think the subject matter is fantastic, but I'm not entirely sure about the title.

My suggestion would be to tweak it slightly so that it refers to the before and after you mention in the article - that or add a few subheadings so that if readers skim it before reading, they will more or less know what to expect. Let me know your thoughts?
