Healing Ancestral Trauma

The outside must seem so scary, eh?
I ask you to spare a minute or two to just stop whatever you are doing. Take this time for yourself. You are the culmination of your ancestors and their lived experiences, hopes, dreams, traumas, nightmares, and much more. They need you here, we need you here to stay and keep going.

First, envision kinder, vibrant, radical realities where grasses are greener and waters may shimmer with your ancestors’ tears of relief and joy. There are other worlds out there. They just start from within. Look within, you are your own mirror.

You are your ancestors’ reflections in the waters.
