Imprinting begins at the moment of conception through the collective DNA
of our respective lineages and their accumulative cellular memories, including trauma. This explains intergenerational patterns and expressions of behavior.
At the moment of conception we are implanted in our very first environment; making us vulnerable for imprinting by whatever stressors our mother is being exposed to and her response to those stressors.
As a result, our sense of safety and security begins to be encoded as cellular memory before we are even born.
