Maternal instinct and God the Mother
Maternal instinct , which have been considered natural, are viewed from a new point of view as science develops. Through the amazing maternal instincts of life, we can realize our God the Mother.
Scientific approach to maternal instinct
Many mothers find themselves changed as like born again after giving birth . It is the maternal instinct that drives them to do things they have not done before they have a baby. In the past, this maternal instinct has been considered great, but at the same time it has been taken for granted. However, as science advances, changes in the human body and the actions of hormones that make the maternal instincts become known. Let’s remember God the Mother through understanding motherhood instinct.
Motherhood instinct that makes Mother love her baby.
A representative hormone involved in maternal instinct is oxytocin. Oxytocin induces maternal birth and stimulates lactation. Also, It make mother to feel love to the newborn baby and to take care of the baby to form an attachment relationship. This action of oxytocin has been found in studies by Turkle and Rosenblatt. In this study, they collected blood from mother rats within 48 hours of giving birth and injected them into virgin rats. The virgin rat then took care of the young rats as if they were their mothers and feed them even though she can not get milk. It has been found that there is something that causes maternal behavior in the blood of mother rats.
In addition, changes in dopamine levels were also observed in the brains of the mother rats. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that makes us feel joy and happiness. Cocaine is a typical drug that promotes the secretion of dopamine. Cocaine-addicted rats generally prefer cocaine more than food, but the mother rats in the early part of childbirth spend most of their time cramping cocaine and taking care of their offspring. It is because for mother, the contact with offspring made the joy and happiness more powerful than the cocaine.
Maternal instinct to brave mother
Sometimes, Maternal instincts surpass survival instincts. The only reason the squirrel can take a life and fight the snake, and the giraffe can rush to the five hungry lions without a fearful sign is to defend their Kid. People are no exception. It is a fact that everyone is sympathetic to the strength of maternity, including the story of a baby survived in the arms of a mother at the scene of an accident or a mother who saved her baby with superhuman strength. It has been found that two hormones are involved in the mother’s bravery by her children. Oxytocin and prolactin are acting on the brain to stop stress and eliminate anxiety and fear.
God the Mother who gave motherhood instinct
Why did the Creator God make all living being cannot be born without the suffering of the mother, and to sustain the life of mankind through maternal instinct? Where does the instinct of mother’s mother’s mother’s mother begin from? Bible testified about God the Mother who is source of all life.
