How many times have you come so close to moving forward, ready to allow your life to flow more simply and easily, only to find yourself caught by some deep sense of loyalty to the suffering of your parents and the other ancestors who have come before you? Through discoveries with my own process and by witnessing many others, I have noticed that there seems to be a point where we resist letting go of our pain and struggle, because to do this would somehow diminish or invalidate all the effort and challenge we endured previously.
• If it is this easy to let go now, then what does this say about the legitimacy of my difficulties before? •
My conclusion? 1. we only heal or let go when we are truly ready. 2. Whatever we, or our ancestors, endured is exactly what prepared us for reconcilliation now. SO what if, instead of holding onto the agreement to honor the generations before us by suffering as they did, we can recognize what they have experienced and release this multigenerational contract to perpetuate the belief that life must be HARD. Thus We can allow ourselves to release any loyalty to familial suffering and rather choose: compassion, love and gratitude.
