Nature or Nurture… It’s Both!

Nature or Nurture… It’s Both!
By BlackLion

Have you heard the debate between nature and nurture? Clearly, everyone is inclined to be a certain way when they’re born. We each came with our own intentions, tendencies, frequencies, and mission. We were created from cosmic energies and infused with the essence of our parents to become a living, breathing, loving human being on this magnificent and mysterious world.

Physically, we’re each made of atoms, molecules, fluids, cells, membranes, organs, and bones. Through our understanding of physics, chemistry, biology and psychology, we better understand that life is a miracle. Nowhere else in the known universe is there anything like life on this planet. From our crystal clear blue waters and the lush green of millions of varieties of plant life to the billions and billions of animals, microbes and, oh yes, us humans.

We’re living in an environment, right now, that supports all of us so that we each can live, grow, transform, and eventually die in this brilliant natural cycle of life. Humans can go without food for as much as 3 weeks, without water for only about 3 days, without shelter for only 3 hours in severe weather conditions, and around 3 minutes without air.

We have found a universal sweet spot on this nature-filled Earth.

So what? Most of us have all that we need and then some. You may not have known the harshness of starvation, lack of pure drinking water, not enough shelter from the elements, or lack of fresh, crisp air. Thank Goddess!

Thankfully, you’ve had others to nurture you – someone who cared for you when you couldn’t care for yourself, someone who feed you, watered you, cleansed you and sheltered you. With the deep and loving embrace of your parents, you were brought up in a place that gave you the strength, resolve, and ability to grow and become who you came here to be.

Of course, there are always exceptions and definitely some extra baggage along the way. Yet, despite all of the harsh realities that you may have faced, you managed to create a life worth living and worth sharing. You found compatriots, friends, lovers, and eventually maybe kids (human or furred) of your own to nourish and nurture. The cycle of life continues!

From a purely scientific point of view, life is an anomaly, a fluke in this otherwise mechanistic universe.

Those who have faith in spirit know that we chose to be here on Earth and that life is a miracle.

And the line between these two extremes has blurred significantly as quantum physics has become known. There is no objective universe – it is all relative to our own conscious viewpoint.

Wait, what? So, you’re born into this natural world, better yet FROM this natural world. You are nurtured, to varying degrees, by those who came before.

And now we understand that your unique perspective not only affects your interactions with the world but the very nature of reality as well.

We are all conscious co-creators of this Universe. To be sure, there are guidelines, rules, and laws that we have agreed upon to be part of this physical world system, yet within these vast confines, there is a lot of wiggle room.

Recognize that the nature of all matter is energy. And energy has certain properties such as amplitude, direction and frequency. Matter just happens to be a low-frequency type of energy while sunlight, x-rays and supernovae are high-frequency energies.

With your conscious, and often unconscious, guidance of your own frequency, your thoughts and actions resonate into the universe. When like frequencies interact or stack on one another, they amplify these energies.

One example is when an opera singer bursts her highest note (a frequency) and shatters a wine flute because she hits its resonance.

When you are focusing your thought frequencies into the universe, those similar energies will naturally gravitate to you.

At least, you will more likely experience those similar frequencies since they will be amplified in your experience because of your emanations. And similarly, the opposite of what you are resonating will diminish toward nil in your life because it too will seek out more common frequencies with itself (since you are not it any more).

And this is where nurturing comes into play.

When you tend your thoughts to those that most please you, you feel good and resonate positively in your life. So encourage nature to respond in kind with those delicious frequencies.

Often, we unconsciously deliver frequencies to the universe that don’t really serve us, like worry, doubt, anger, and fear, and this is what we receive in our life all too often.

Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to tend your joy and receive that which you are wanting?

Great news! The nature of the universe is to give you exactly what you are putting out into the world. And when you nurture yourself and others toward these positive vibrations – great health, happy family, delicious and nutritious foods, fulfilling work, fruitful relationships – you’ll discover a whole new level of reality in which your life becomes a natural extension of your spiritual connection.

So what’s really stopping you from focusing on the feel-good parts of your life? Sure, you’ll have some clean-up time from old thoughts, beliefs, and paradigms, yet when you truly choose to focus on nurturing your natural tendencies, life will become so much better.

Don’t you deserve to live the life of your dreams?

As spiritual mentors and natural nurturers, let us guide you through the sometimes bumpy road to self-love, self-care and self-nurturing. Once you’ve felt what life truly can be like, you’ll never want to put the blinders back on again. The universe is full of both-and, so have your cake and eat it too, joyfully!
