Family Wound Healing Quest
The Healing Quest
~presented by Jojopah Maria Nsoroma
(Quest is the act or an instance of seeking or pursuing something; a journey, an adventurous expedition, especially a long or difficult one, in search of something.)
The family wound has the power to keep us cycling through unhappy experiences, self-sabotaging behaviors, and the inability to give and receive love freely – as long as we allow it. The following is a way to give the Universe permission to support you in breaking the cycles of pain.
To heal from the family wound one must first accept that it exists and become curious about its impact on your parents, grand-parents, and great grand-parents. It is helpful to collect family stories about the major painful events experienced by previous generations. If you are not able to access family history, then research the major events that negatively affected the community or region you were born in decades before your birth.
Take one or all of those painful events you discover and write them down on a piece of paper. Place the paper in an envelope and write on the envelope in big letters, “FORGIVENESS and GRATITUDE.” Burn the envelope with the intention that you are open to receiving the grace of forgiveness to release you from carrying the pain any longer, and that you are grateful to now be able to learn the higher purpose and “gift” in the family wound.
