How do I know if I have Ancestral Trauma in my family? What does Ancestral Healing mean?...



You are at a time in your life when you want to experience a deeper sense of self. Or there is something you are struggling with that is pulling at you to understand more. You have heard people talk about Ancestral Trauma and Ancestral Healing but you don't know what that means. You may be thinking, do I have Ancestral Trauma in my background? Would it help to know? How do I heal it?


Ancestral Trauma is a traumatic event, that your ancestors experienced. The traumas they may have experienced could have been wars, famine, enslavement, abuse, natural disasters, and even grief and loss from illness that wiped out whole families. Science tells us the effect of traumas can be passed down from generation to generation. And you, as a descendant can feel as though you have experienced the trauma yourself. You may feel disconnected. The effect of Ancestral Trauma can show up in how you feel about yourself and, how you feel about and relate to your family.


Ancestral Healing comes from learning about, acknowledging, honoring, and healing the wounds and traumas that your ancestors experienced.  Ancestral healing is based on the belief that the experiences and emotions of your ancestors, which molded you into who you are today, can be healed and released. Understanding these ancestral wounds can bring deep healing to you. It may change the way you feel about yourself and your family. It can also bring a deeper sense of knowing and understanding where you come from.


I know discovering your family story can help you unlock the traumas and secrets from the past. Knowing your ancestral past offers a tool for Ancestral healing and a much deeper understanding of who you are. As you begin to understand what was experienced by those who came before you, it may also help you understand some of the emotions and reactions that you have been feeling today. Through this discovery, it often brings the knowledge that we carry the Blessings of our Ancestors as well.


It's only the beginning but it is the beginning of the Ancestral healing process and can be the beginning of a deeper sense of self. I can help you explore more about what this could mean in your life.


It's time to heal.
