“The conflict between the will to deny horrible events and the will to proclaim them aloud is the central dialectic of psychological trauma.” 
― Judith Lewis HermanTrauma and Recovery: The Aftermath of Violence - From Domestic Abuse to Political Terror

Trauma runs within each of us.  Our experiences have been different, but the hurt, anger, frustration and fear can be felt at any given moment.   

As we look back through what our great grandparents, our grandparents, our parents, and even ourselves have experienced, it can be easy to pinpoint exactly when the high stress and traumatic events happened.

Sometimes though, those experiences are buried deep within, never to be talked about, so as not to bring shame to the family, or the individual who experienced the trauma. 
When trauma is unspoken, it becomes trapped within the body, looking for a way to be expressed.   Some times it will be expressed through a physical ailment, while other times it comes out as irrational fears for generations that come after the initial trauma.  

Many of the generations before our own didn't have a choice to express these traumatic events... .it was all just a part of life and something that they had to 'deal with' and 'get on with'.   

By connecting with our ancestors, and allowing them to tell their story (either through Ohana Generational Healing, meditation, dream work or journalling) you begin to heal the parts of them (and yourself) that they weren't able to.   

By giving voice to the traumas that your family has experienced, you begin to light the path to healing all that has been buried in the past.   

When you don't know the specifics of an experience, you can ask that your Ancestors step forward and help you to understand what the experience was like for them.  

For example, if your great grandmother witnessed her father dying in a barn fire, what emotions do you believe she would have felt?  Would it depend on the age?  If she was 5?  If she was 12?  If she was 20?  What hurt, fear, or belief do you believe she may have attached to?   Allow yourself to sit quietly in reflection as you connect with her energy, and allow her story to be told through you.   Give space for the trauma(s) to be heard and to be healed.  

A good listening ear can be the key to opening the door to healing.  

Until next time,

Thinking of taking a class? 


Catherine’s class was one of the most enjoyable, complete and
comprehensive classes I have ever taken in a healing modality.
The manual is well designed and easy to follow, yet very complete.
