As humans, our primal instinct is to reproduce and pass along our genes to the next generation. It’s biological, it’s our human nature, it’s a primary law of existence. It guarantees survival, it guarantees that life continues. Our ancestors were hardwired to create life, so are we.. except that with birth control, vaccines, pharmaceuticals, endocrine disrupting foods and chemicals, our hormones are more imbalanced than ever. People are becoming more infertile and imbalanced… society is tricking us women into thinking that the corporate ladder is more fulfilling, rewarding, and important than motherhood. This is potentially the most important battle that humanity is up against right now…the war on the family.

Our children create the future

The building blocks of a healthy society are the various healthy communities, composed of healthy families. It all starts at home. Strong families create strong communities, strong communities and towns lead to a strong nation. There’s no other way around it. Families form the backbone of our culture, and have a crucial role in society development and the direction in how our species evolves and plays out. Mother Theresa said it best, “if you want to change the world, go home and love your family.”

Brain development and programming take place

Babies born into stable, nurturing families show much better brain development than those from broken homes. A positive family and home life experience establishes a sturdy foundation for behavior and learning. Children’s brains are in the theta brainwave from birth to roughly seven years of age, which is where the subconscious programming happens. They are more or less in a state of hypnosis…they are sponges, absorbing and mimicking their surroundings. As Dr. Bruce Lipton says, “the first seven years are foundational to your goals and perceived limitations.. Critical to who we become for the rest of our life.” The parents and family members are children’s first relationships, role models and teachers. When a strong bond is formed with both parents, children feel safe and secure. That helps shape the way they view themselves and the world around them. That transfers into adulthood, helping them successfully navigate, form, and maintain healthy relationships. 

Values and identity are instilled

Families teach children about emotions, communication, and how to interact with others. These life lessons guide children and create a value and moral system within the family structure. These values are ingrained in them creating discipline and the compass to decipher what's right and what’s wrong. This becomes their identity and character, the way they express themselves, how they treat others, and can shape what becomes their future purpose in life. Pretty big deal. I can’t think of a greater or more important and rewarding contribution to the world such as this. 

Unconditional Love

It all starts inside the mothers womb. This sacred temple of creation exists out of pure Godlike love. What a beautiful piece of magic that nature provides, that brought us to consciousness and existence in the here and now. There is no greater love than that of Mother to child. An unconditionally loving family accepts us and supports us through all the stages of life. We can depend on them to wipe our tears in times of challenge or struggle, share our joys and successes with us, and be our rock and support system through all the highs and lows. 

We’re better together

From the beginning of human life we grouped ourselves into tribes, to ensure survival. It’s in our DNA to naturally seek and offer support to one another. It offers us a sense of belonging. We can’t walk this path alone, nor would we want to. Together we have value, we are seen and heard, we play, build, and evolve, together. Your love and light shine outwardly and are reflected back to you by your family.
