In a world where high demands are placed upon us from the time that we are children, the majority of family bonds are broken down to some degree. The first seven years of our life, we are in a constant state of hypnosis. During this stage, our left brain is still developing significantly, including our verbal language and comprehension. Instead, our primary language resides in feelings and pictures/demonstrations. Vulnerable and highly impressionable, we become shaped by our experiences and the adults surrounding us. How we are spoken to becomes our inner dialogue and so our personality is shaped and our "story" begins.
