In traditional psychology, what influences human behavior is nature and nurture or in other words genetics and environment. Because our parents give us our genetics and most often our early environment, if we don’t like our conduct or quality of experience it really is our parents’ fault.
However, my guides say that our human behavior comes from four aspects, yes our genetics and environment, but also our past life traumas, talents, fears, and attainments and our eternal identity as Spirit.
They say that we experience our environment through the lens of our own karmic past, which includes both our past lives and/or our Spirit and that we are guided toward families that bring up both our strengths and weaknesses, so we can work with them to evolve. This perspective encourages self-responsibility and can simultaneously empower us to actualize our best through being guided by the wisdom of our own inner Spirit.
