We will be met again and again

Trauma runs across generations in family lines until it hits someone who will choose to heal the patterns of ignorance, agony, misery, sufferings, sickness, disconnections, shame, guilt, fear and much more.

 

For anyone who chooses this path, the wounds, the pains, the ugly, the beauty, the agreements, the world, the family, the ancestors, the body, the breath, the heart, are met over and over again, for such is a lifelong process.

 

On this path, transformation oozes from the bones of the one who chooses healing, what was once labelled as “decay” is hurled back to life.

While we may choose to begin on this excruciating path, little is promised to us, least the reward that at the end of path, our biological family and larger kin will await and rejoice in togetherness and we shall feast at the same table.

These words are intensely painful to hear and sit with, for within each human who chooses to clean his/her inner rivers, there dwells this dream, this hope, this wish that one day “we shall feast at the same table”.

The dream of the child within, who believes in

“as I heal, so do my kin and one day, we shall rejoice in togetherness”, for many, this dream will never be met as envisioned.”

 

The one who aches and who treads in shadowed bitterness and hopelessness is none other than the child within.

The dream of the inner child be held within sacred bounds and be grieved over and over again, for through this process, we shall allow ourselves to meet the unspoken, the unheard, the aching and seeking parts of our selves.

 

This meeting is crucial and it is part of our healing.

This meeting will teach us to see, hear, feel and become present to “there is no more to be done; we have done enough; we are enough”; running around, chasing modalities, teachers and facilitators will bring no more shifts.

This meeting will teach us that from the beginning, we have belonged and we belong till the end of time.

We will be taught that there comes a time when a line is to be drawn, while our choice to heal has transformed our life, may we be gently reminded that there is no promise that those who are biologically- related to us and those with who we relate strongly will meet us on the way.

As painful as this may be, in face of the deepest love, may we hear that

“for anyone who chooses healing, this dream will be met over and over across land, borders, frontiers and times”.

We will be met in utter rejoice and we shall feast at the same table.

This is the promise.

To dare to pause and rest at the table and to open to those who meet us at the same table is the beginning of the embracing of the long aching dream of kin to kin, heart to heart, breath to breath and body to body.

However, wherever, whoever you are,

May you begin this path now

May you be reminded that you will be met over and over

May you be brave enough to open your hearts to those who will meet you at the same table

May you meet and be met by your self at the same table

 

Love from my heart to yours

Hello Megha,

How are you and your family doing, Love? Thanks so much for sharing this deep conversation on healing across generations. I decided early on in this journey of life to take the seemingly harder path to face all the no longer worked for me. Sometimes I do wonder if this is the right path, but it's the only one that works for me:-) It sounds like you are in the same boat, but do you ever question it?

Hope you're safe and well:-)

I have questioned and I still do over and over again, am I doing the right thing?
Did I go wrong somewhere?

I am being taught and I believe it is a lifelong process, that when we set intentions huge as we do, especially the ones related to healing our ancestral trauma, we are left in utter dark and when I say dark, I speak of more rooting, grounding, underground and through this we lose so much of what we identified as our own.

So, I do question and I do want to quit so often.
Now I end up quitting the resisting, quitting the doing, quitting the need to know

Making space for unknown and it's ok

sending so much love your way and I am grateful we met and we will keep meeting one another on this path

love love love

Yeah, I hear you:-) Isn't it frustrating, though, to feel like we need to keep questioning it rather than just accepting it? I think it is.

Thanks for sharing.

I'm still working on the "need" to "do" and "know" all the time. To be honest, I don't have the energy for it any longer and it seems inauthentic to keep in that space, if you know what I mean?

Thanks, Love. Right back at you:-) Yes, we will.

Hello, Megha,

This post resonates so much with me. I have chosen that path to be a cycle breaker, and in doing so, it felt like I’m being pulled back to many instances in childhood when there are triggers.

Thanks for this beautiful truth: to be met over and over again. Now I understand.

Thanks, too, for calling it bravery. I appreciate you. Looking forward to reading your future posts. Please write more!

Thank you for your words and thank you for how you opened up.

Indeed, when we choose this path of healing, we often get pulled back.

I have often wondered whether I have done enough inner works, whether I have not tried enough, what else to look into and right now, I am in a phase, where I am gently learning to accept that my work is just mine and there is no guarantee to the rest shifting.

sending so much love your way as you keep moving bravely

it takes an act of courage every day to keep going.

thank you for being that one act of courage that inspires so many women beyond your awareness

love love love

Thank you, too, dear sister! I what you wrote in your reply, “learning to accept that my work is just mine and there is no guarantee to the rest shifting“. Exactly!

We grant grace and kindness to ourselves. Let us not rush the process.

Sending you love, too, brave sister. Please stay safe!
