Healing from Generational Trauma Part 1: 5 Ways of Healing Old Wounds
1 Aware of Choice
With awareness, you can choose to think, believe and act differently than what you were once taught. This one thing might change everything about how you parent, how you love, and how you live in the world.
4 When you’re aware you give yourself permission to feel
So this is important. Feeling is the way to heal wounds. Feeling is the path to authentic living. Feeling is the tool with which we build our foundation of truth, expression, creativity, and awareness. Feeling is how we show others (including our kids) what it means to be human and how to navigate the world.
2 When you Detach
With awareness comes the ability to detach from expectations and outcomes. It’s a freedom from old, conditioned thoughts, inner critic messages, limited rules and destructive behaviors. Detaching from the expectations and outcomes you think you’re supposed to have and being curious about the life being presented to you instead, gives you the chance to respond instead of react to life.
3 Your Superpower
Your intuition and being connected with it is the single most important thing when it comes to making clear decisions that serve and nourish your soul. As you nourish your own soul, your children automatically get a parent who feels and acts confident, nourished, calm, energetic and responsive. That’s going to be way better than uncertain, stressed out, frantic, exhausted and reactive
5 When you’re aware you notice the opportunities and miracles
Awareness breeds positivity, purpose, gratitude and other important mindsets that are key to happiness. When you practice awareness, you’re practicing a mindset that spreads these things to those you come in contact with. Awareness opens minds, hearts and souls. And who else’s mind, heart and soul would you rather open than your own child?
