Have you ever thought about all the women who came before you in your family… and the many teaching moments they have offered you….
Within the family lineage, women hold so much information. I’ve been thinking a lot about the lineage of women in my family. My grannies and aunts who have come before me, the ones I knew and also the ones I never got to know.
I have compassion for the women before me because they were not allowed to feel like we are today. They did not have access to all the help we do. They were never asked how they felt. Never allowed to express what they felt. Being a good mother meant not even writing or speaking about what you were struggling with.
I have factual details of both my grannies but no reference of what these women actually felt about anything. Both their lives as mothers, were not easy at all and impacted on the way they raised their children. Their feelings are the details I would have loved to have known.
Their feelings would be my wisdom for today. My point of reference…
There are positive and negative teaching moments that each and every lineage of women offered us….just as you and I are handing our own children, and nieces, the light and the shadow moments of life.
The negative teaching moments, the ones that wound, arise from a place of wounding within that woman, herself. And we all have them, each one of us and our own children receive this unintentional wounding as well.
Insight and compassion becomes the healing balm. This is SUCH a softening landing place.
Very often I imagine myself offering these words to the younger women in my family still to be born….
What you give yourself permission for, flows into the way your own children observe and receive permission for themselves.
How you feel and how you are NOT allowing yourself to feel, will directly impact on the way you raise your children and interact with others.
You can overcome anything…. that there is a light inside of you, a light that beams brightly behind everything you experience as darkness.
You now have a chance to continue to rewrite the lessons we did not get to do so well….
I don`t know about you, but I am so very thankful that allowing the heart to be heard is becoming so much more acceptable today… in fact it is the way we are moving forward in raising each other up to greater levels of awareness and consciousness…
Feeling connected within ourselves… towards each other…. truly matters. Connection flows into everything we do.
Sending you so much love and light
