One curious bit about parenting is that when your child become the age that you were when you first experienced a trauma, your unresolved trauma surfaces. It doesn’t feel like a gift, but it is. When trauma resurfaces we can more easily work with it and move it out of our physical tissues ( we carry these traumas in our cells until they can be healed).
Because we are so connected both physically and energetically with our children, their joys are our joys and their sorrows are our sorrows. The more sensitive and empathic you are you might even physically take this on.
What is surprising is when our old traumas resurface. We are energetically tuned in to the age of our child and our inner child. I have had so many clients (female and male) have old trauma resurface when their child becomes the age they first experienced the trauma. This seems most impactful when the trauma was sexual abuse. Not only are all your emotions coming to the surface…and sometimes you have suppressed that this trauma ever happened…but you are busy trying to protect your child from having a similar trauma.
There are essences here to support you. If the trauma has been suppressed and you guess that something happened, but you are not sure, Bisbee Beehive Cactus from Desert Alchemy is so helpful. This essence helps you to know what happened while healing the trauma quickly so it can be released. Post Traumatic Stabilizer from FES and Star of Bethlehem from Bloesem Remedies are at the top of the list for healing. Each person is unique so combinations are tailored for your highest possible good.
