When you listen to birdsong, the type of call will instantly identify the species of bird it belongs to. While each bird of the one species will initially look and sound the same, individual birds can show vast differences in personality, ranging from happy, shy, vindictive or cheeky, regardless of their upbringing and/or environment, age or length of time in captivity. Humans keeping any animal as a pet will notice unique characteristics in their pet’s behaviour that would make it instantly recognizable to them, even if it were surrounded by others of its own kind.
Humans also develop their own personality at a vey early age and can show certain behavioural characteristics, dispositions and attitudes in their interactions with their families that can seem far removed from any family genetic tendencies or traits. How is it that a child of happy disposition can thrive in a family that shows little love, that a child can be anxious from the time of birth despite it being born into a calm and loving family? Why are there so many people in the world homeless, lost, angry, nasty or narcissistic, even though their upbringing was one of the utmost care, compassion and excellent educational opportunities?
The nature versus nurture debate has always been a question that has many explanations but no definitive answers. While it can reasonably argued that love is the highest source of energy, the harsh environments in which many children are born into can greatly influence a person’s outlook on life and self-belief. However, many people’s personalities belie any outside influences. Why is this so?
Those who practise astrology, numerology, palmistry and other forms of physical visionary practices that show all that has already been written will seem to ‘read’ a person like a book. Their ability to pinpoint a person’s personality traits and life’s path are more often than not astoundingly accurate, leaving people in awe and wonder as to how their life could already be written as if it has already happened. How is it that the lines on the palm of your hand, the date and time you were born or the alignment of planets at the time of birth can literally form a map of your life, including an accurate description of your personality traits?
The essence of who you are comes from the aspects of your soul that have already experienced life in its many aspects, forms and levels of consciousness. The paths you have chosen in previous lifetimes and the lessons you have learnt and forgone, the trauma you have overcome or held onto and the amount of soul fragments that have fractured and been created over the span of your incarnations all contribute to the vibrational frequency of consciousness that you are born with. Put simply, your personality and disposition to life are reflections and refractions of your soul journey up to this lifetime.
Your reality is written by you, Dear Hearts. Your path is set only for as long as you choose to accept the conditions of your life as truth. Free will is the driving force of change, as well as the ability to take responsibility for one’s actions and the resulting consequences are major influences on how a person’s soul develops and grows spiritually over their lifetimes.
All humans have a shadow side which many choose to hide from others. Bey accepting the ‘good’ and ‘bad’ aspects of your personality an making a conscious effort to be mindful of the impact your behaviour has on others, you will be actively raising your consciousness and stepping into the truth of your soul’s journey and purpose.
So, who are you? How much have you allowed your environment to change or shape you for the better or worse? Or have you accepted your shadow side, regardless of the possible negative effects it has on others or on your own life? How much responsibility are you willing to take to rewrite your personality, if it is getting in the way of your spiritual growth and personal happiness?
You are who you are, but is that the end of the story?
