You may be familiar with the idea of using acupuncture to clear congested energy and stimulate chi throughout the body. Well, groups of people – particularly families – also have a natural flow of energy that serves to provide each individual member with love, support, power, life force, etc.
However, when someone in a family sustains a trauma or difficult fate, and family members have NOT made peace with what happened, the flow of energy becomes disrupted. Later generations can be left hungry for vital life force, or carrying emotional burdens, dysfunctions, and unhealthy entanglements that do not belong to them.
Perhaps your mom lost a parent at an early age or had a younger brother who died from smallpox. Maybe your great grandfather immigrated to the US, leaving his entire family and beloved homeland behind. War, famine, political/civil histories (e.g., slavery, genocide, famine), estranged family members, divorce, betrayal, and so on…
These are not just 2-dimensional stories of the past. They are vital details about real world, emotional experiences in the lives of the people who affect you most.
