I recently came across the term ‘collective resourcing’ in regards to collective ancestral trauma healing and this gave me a great feeling of relief.
I am sensing that I am not ‘doing the work’ for me . I’ve mentioned this repetitively.
What I find within is not ‘my answer’ it is ‘the response to life’ itself.
Every journey of self-discovery I indulge in internally reveals a great deal of resources that could be crucial for survival in ‘the external’…
“The veil is thin these days,” they say.
That’s the reason why I’ve decided to give this piece a go….
There might be something behind the veil that wants to be revealed (and that lays beyond my intellectual abilities).
What I understood during an online event with Thomas Hübel on collective trauma recovery is that my healing IS my union with my ancestors.
I do not only inherit the pain but also the resilience of my forefathers and mothers. And this resilience is what I recover.
I am ‘life incarnated’. I am resilience. The willingness to push through. Life wanted to live through me.
It is something I felt all the way. Every purge, every cry feels like a dissolution of barricades, a removal of debris that blocks my connection to source.
As I mentioned many times before – this can look different to every single one of us who consider themselves on a healing journey – the path. My tool is crying, yours could be something completely different.
Nevertheless, the more I see and the more I converse with the souls I am meeting on the way, the more I sympathize with one common idea:
Healing is the freeing of hidden resources – resources that have been a part of us since generations.
Healing is something that can only occur ‘from the inside out’.
What does that mean?
We have to have a conversation with ourselves in order to be able to respond to life. If we learn to communicate with ourselves, we eventually find out about our needs. By responding to our needs, we regain our response-ability to life.
And responding to life is in one way or another re-connecting with our ancestors. <3
What we discover within ourselves is not a concept of life. It is not a world-view. It is life itself if we let it. It is not the answer to a question. It is not our purpose. It is trust itself. It is resilience – the power to move on.
And when I say power I don’t mean force. I’m talking about the subtle energy flow that keeps us alive…
Healing is the freeing of long-forgotten resources. It is receiving what is here for us anyways. Resources that are brought to us by our ancestors.
Healing is also the rediscovery of joy. The joy of being alive – our greatest resource.
