"Family, like branches on a tree, we all grow in different directions yet our roots remain as one.” Values, attitudes, beliefs, and unresolved emotional distress patterns are often passed on from parent to child over many generations. This can take place through verbal and non-verbal communication, including feelings and body language that express family values and beliefs, and in a more open way, through rules and advice.
Trauma experienced by our parents and grandparents -- including abuse, wartime experiences, racial and gender-based oppression, poverty, and addiction -- can change our genetic expression through inherited trauma patterns. These patterns directly contribute to the recurring issues many of us experience, such as chronic fatigue, anxiety, depression, and blocks around creativity, money or relationships.
Honoring the ancestors is a major key to our own health and happiness. When we clear trauma from our hearts, minds, and bodies, we are also healing our ancestral lineage - as well as clearing negative genetic patterning that would otherwise affect our children and future generations!
We all have fears that we are turning into our parents, and if you have noticed the repeating of patterns from one generation to the next, ancestral healing may be for you.
Ancestral healing can break the reoccurring ancestral patterns that hold us in the now opening us up to new potentials to clear the slate for us, our children and their future descendants.
