Epigenetics has been a buzzword recently. More & more people are waking up to the realities of the generational trauma they have been carrying. It’s showing up as negative patterns, chronic or mental illness in their own lives. To book a free taster healing session see below on the blog.
Below I am sharing a short clip from an online summit I was a part of. “The Empowered Client” hosted by Katie Rössler to empower healers, coaches, and clinicians through tools and tips for themselves or their client work.
I spoke about epigenetics. What it is and how it’s a fantastic tool to dive into your ancestral lines and heal your ancestors’ traumas. Because, as we all know, history keeps repeating itself.
So, what does epigenetics literally mean?
Epigenetics refers to the impact of traumatic events that have occurred in the past and have been passed down through generations in a family or community. These events can include things like war, genocide, slavery, and other forms of systemic oppression or violence. The effects of ancestral trauma can manifest in a variety of ways, including physical and mental health issues, as well as social and cultural impacts.
One way that ancestral trauma can be transmitted from one generation to the next is through epigenetic changes. Epigenetic changes are modifications to DNA or the proteins with which it interacts that can affect the way that genes are expressed. These changes can be influenced by a variety of factors, including environmental exposures and behavior, and can have both short-term and long-term effects on an individual’s physical and mental health.
Examples of epigenetics
For example, research has shown that individuals who have experienced trauma, such as child abuse or exposure to war, may have changes in the way their genes are expressed that can affect their risk of developing certain physical and mental health conditions. These changes may be passed down to future generations, potentially increasing their risk of developing these conditions as well.
While the effects of ancestral trauma can be significant, it is important to note that individuals and communities can also find ways to heal and cope with the impact of these events. This may involve seeking support from mental health professionals, participating in cultural and community practices, and finding ways to heal and build resilience.
And how can we heal our ancestral lines?
While a lot of research is still being done on a scientific basis, ancestral healing is not new. I have been involved with healing my own ancestral lines for a decade now and have facilitated many many healing sessions for others. Ancestral healing is a big theme in my self-healing program (have a look here).
I am trained and certified in many different modalities such as energy healing and shamanic healing (Incas & celtic). I have downloaded/ channeled my own healing system that works with Mother Earth’s energy and Source energy to facilitate ancestral healing at a deep level. However, the first part is the diagnostics part. the part where I tap into your subconscious mind to find out what traumas exactly you are carrying. That helps to build awareness as to how this trauma affects you in your life. It’s easier to release once we know and also helps stay more empowered to not repeat the same patterns.
