In this article, we will talk about the signs that you are ready for generational clearing. This process of healing comes from the trauma of one’s childhood wound. It is a deep and powerful process that can help you to release old patterns, beliefs and emotions that were created by your family upbringing.

Generational trauma is a concept in which individuals inherit emotional distress from their parents, grandparents, as far back as 14 generations, as a result of traumatic experiences during their childhood or adolescence. These traumas can be passed on through generations because they are not healed and unacknowledged. It was instead repressed and kept inside the individual’s body through DNA to be passed down.

The purpose of generational clearing is to heal these hurtful wounds so they do not get passed onto the next generation. It enables people to heal their childhood wounds and undo generational patterns to not continue on. 

It is extremely important to note that generational clearing does not work for everyone, and there are many factors that will determine if someone is ready for this process. When you begin the process of generational healing, it is highly recommended to have a therapist and/or energy work to help you process the trauma. It is best to NOT do this alone starting off.  

 

Here are a few signs you’re ready to begin generational healing: 

  • Understanding it is time to change how you parent your children 
  • Finding compassion towards your parents and how they tried their best (even though you didn’t agree with how they raised you) 
  • You want to recreate a narrative in your family line so that you can change how you interact (think, believe, feel) in your life to be carried through your children and beyond. 
  • High sense of wanting to change how you take care of yourself
  • Tired of feeling like this is the only way it is going to be for the rest of your life, knowing you can change the ‘it runs in the family’ excuse 

Generational trauma is not something you have to carry with you for the rest of your life, it is a powerful process that helps people connect with their ancestors and heal from their pain. It is possible to heal from it (with professional people). There are a variety of methods for you to heal your ancestors, it is about choosing which one fits best for you.

 

Methods for ancestral healing: 

  • Inner child work
  • Energy work
  • Shadow work
  • Family constellation 
  • Bodywork (Craniosacral, Myofascial Release, Massage) 

Ancestral trauma doesn’t have to be your resting place

It is a place of acknowledging and showing compassion to your family who has been through trauma and is now ready to be seen and heard. It is time for you to recognize your wounds and your family’s hurt in order to heal the past so that you and your children can change the family patterns for future generations.  

You can heal the past in order to change your future. I believe in you. 

Much love to you.

You’ve probably heard the saying from your family, ‘oh it runs in the family, it is okay.’ well when it comes to physical health such as cancer, allergies and diabetes running in the family, I can see how family members would say that. Yes it runs in the family genetically. That also goes for epigenetics. 

What the heck is epigenetics? 

According to the CDC, “Epigenetics is the study of how your behaviors and environment can cause changes that affect the way your genes work.” 

The environment is how we influence the genetic and cellular expressions that manifest as signs, symptoms, and disease states. When we change our environment, then we begin to change our epigenetics. In other words, “Genes load the gun, but the environment pulls the trigger,” said Dr. George Bray. 

You have a bit more control of your life than you think, right? 

There have been studies about how trauma can be passed down from generations to generations. If you are experiencing an emotion out of nowhere, it is possible it came from your ancestors who had a trauma experience and they responded by fight, flight, freeze and/or fawn. Why does this matter? It carries weight because there are genetic markers, including trauma, that get passed down in the ancestral lineage which can have an affect on you and your children. However, like the above quote said, it is about the environment we are in as well. 

When I began my self nurturing journey, I was out of the house I grew up in. I began to realize there were things that happened in my upbringing that were a bit traumatic and just not cool. When you begin to take yourself out of your toxic environment, you may begin to realize how your upbringing was not typical. What we believe is natural growing up turns out not so much. Our bodies are used to situations happening a certain way and it can be uncomfortable at first when you begin your journey. 

There could be shift within you changing 

You may get more physical sensations before they subside. Experience extra emotions than before because you are letting out your feelings in a way which wants to be let go when the event happened, but you had to hold it back for others. You may get exhausted with your daily activities such as a job you highly dislike, friends who you thought were welcoming are probably not really, family members who you do not want to be bothered with anymore. (I think we all have that one family member we cannot be around for too long)

The self nurturing journey can be exhausting as heck from time to time, however, you begin to feel lighter. Of course you will grieve for what you wanted to happen in your upbringing, you have every right to do so. You deserve to feel how you feel right now when you could not in the past. When you begin to have physical and emotional releases from past events which hurt you, you begin to feel a shift. 

Can you clarify for me?

A way to explain this change is you have tons of weight on your body. The weight of people’s opinions, criticism, ancestral trauma, heart break, betrayal, weighs heavy on you to the point it is starting to rupture slowly. Once you have acknowledged those past situations that hurt you, a release may begin and you start to feel like the weight is coming off little by little. You are able to feel a bit lighter on the inside. 

When you begin to break family cycles, you are doing awesome with yourself plus your children. Your children may see a change in you they have not seen before. Preventing generational trauma is the beginning of starting a new cycle, a healing cycle, in your family. You are also nurturing your ancestors who did not get the chance to break the cycle for themselves and they will be grateful to you. 

Give yourself a high five or hug or something special for yourself. Being here reading this blog means you recognize there needs to be innovation and you are at the starting point of awareness you can create a different path for yourself.

Curious to know the energetic and spiritual lingo? It is not as confusing as you think.

what is Spiritual Lingo? breaking down terms for you

 

1. Inner child 

Oh, the term “inner child” is a commonly used word, however, not explained in the best way. It is not another personality you’ve created or a ghost living inside of you kinda thing. It is you, a younger you (childlike age), who was taught in life certain tools, good or not so good, which can be carried into adulthood. The word “inner child,” is also a psychological term used often. The inner child is a younger version of you who was not able to do or express what they wanted in their childhood. As your adult self, you can tell your younger self, which is you, that it is totally okay to express how you feel now. You are totally allowed. 

2. Spiritual awakening 

So spiritual awakening is not about getting an upgrade or power-up like DBZ (weeb fans out there, hi) It is about your level of consciousness shifting when it comes to spiritual topics. You may have heard it being described as Enlightenment. When you have awakened yourself, you begin to feel a shift within you. Only you know what that shift is. It could be a shift in your thought patterns, how you eat, how you speak to people, how you relate to others. It can be whatever you feel is a change for you. People think it is only spiritual and raising your vibration and yes that is part of it, however, it is about how you live your daily life; speaking to yourself, to others, how you respond to situations. Spiritual awakening can be what rings true with you. 

3. Womb healing 

Womb healing has different terms, and no it is not only for females or people who identified themselves as females. It can be for whomever, no matter their identity and pronouns. Womb healing is the pelvis area including your urinary system, the lower part of your digestive system, muscles, tissues, organs, blood. In other words, womb healing is for anyone. Womb healing can help with it getting back to you. So what the heck does that mean? Well, it means listening to you again. Really.

Womb work can also help shed toxicity in your life in a physical way: discharge and bowel movement. Emotionally: crying, screaming, yelling. Energetically: letting go of energy vampires and protecting yourself from unwanted attention. Womb healing can help with a variety of aspects of your life. Womb work is a good place to start when you feel you have lost yourself a bit (example: after having kids). When you connect with yourself through your womb, you realize how much you have missed out on not listening to yourself in the first place. 

4. Grounding 

Oh the fancy word: grounding. Grounding means to stay in the present moment. To elaborate, grounding is about being in the moment with whoever and whatever is going on, the good and the not so lovely. The good could be watching your kid drawing a picture and the bad could be your kids fighting over a toy. It can be anything, honestly. Grounding is about being in the now, in your body, feeling your emotions.

We live in a dissociative society right now with being on our phones A LOT and not living in the moment with yourself and your family. When was the last time you actually talked to your kids, just being around them, without your phone near you? Sometimes we tend to dissociate and not realize it. Grounding can help move through those uncomfortable emotions and physical sensations we feel. Give it a try and see a difference. 

5. Emotional and physical release 

The emotional and physical release can happen at the same time. Emotional release is feeling how you wanted to feel when you thought about a past event that had hurt you. The physical release is similar but on a physical level. Let’s say you went through a traumatic situation, yet could not express how you felt because maybe you were told you could not. So you hold it in. Your body remembers what it wanted to do, but couldn’t so it holds it in. Then years later, you remember the traumatic event and you begin to shake and cry. Maybe yell and stomp your feet. That is an emotional and physical release. 

6. Boundaries – Internal, External, Energetic

Boundaries are about learning your own limits within yourself and others. It can be limited in how you eat, talk to people, people talking to you, physical touch, anything really. Learning your own limits can protect you on an energetic level. To clarify, it means to have a distance between you and whomever. Space is your limit and sticks to the limit with this person. Setting a limit is an awesome feeling because you know you have a choice. 

7. Generational trauma 

Generational/family/ancestral trauma is through your family line. There are a variety of articles about how trauma can be passed down through our genes and how epigenetics, which I’ve talked about in a previous article, is about the environment turning the gene on. It could be a gene about diabetes, cancer, addiction, flight, fight, freeze, fawn response. Anything undoubtedly.

Generational trauma can stop with you in order to prevent it from being passed down to your children. If you pass down something to your children, you can adjust it for them as well, if they are willing. Remember, epigenetics is about the environment. When you break cycles in the family, you are not only helping yourself but your children’s future and your ancestors. Trust me, they will be grateful for you doing what they could not do. 

8. Intuition

Intuition has many synonyms: instincts, following your gut, knowing, mother’s instincts. Intuition is when you know to listen to yourself. Intuition can come in different forms. A symbol could be listening to your little voice in your head that says ‘wait for a second before pulling out of the parking spot’ then you see a car flying by. The physical sensation comes from your gut or your chest. There is a belief in seeing numbers back to back, also known as numerology. Intuition can come in different forms for every person, it is a matter of listening to it when it happens. 

 

I hope this list helped you understand the lingo when it comes to exploring the healing journey. Of course, there are more words out there, however, these are the common ones people use when talking about their healing journey. Let me know on Instagram if this article was valuable to you.
