Grief and ancestral trauma
Last night, I had the opportunity to hear Rabbi Tirzah Firestone speak about Ancestral Wounding. We don’t realize how much of what our parents, grandparents and other ancestors history affects us now. The other day, I spoke with someone who had a long involved history of depression. It made so much sense when she said she was a daughter of Holocaust survivors. Intergenerational wounding gets into our “blood line” as Rabbi FIrestone said. In doing research, years ago for a Holocaust related seminar, I discovered that the hormone oxytocin is depleted in children of Holocaust survivors.
Perhaps when sadness, anger, anxiety overwhelms and there is clear understanding of why these feelings are happening. Maybe its related to ancestral wounding. If I can help you with your generational trauma, please contact me for a free consultation. #trauma, #intergenerational trauma, #grief, #bereavement
