It is well-understood now in some progressive scientific circles that everything that happens to us, and our reactions to whatever happens to us, imprints on our actual DNA. Wow!
Think about that for a moment.
We used to think that our DNA was static, did not basically change, and dictated our life experience in a variety of ways. But no, as it happens our DNA can be altered significantly, both in a positive sense and in a not-so-positive sense. This, for the most part, would not present a challenge unless whatever happens to us is traumatic or psycho-emotionally damaging…….and is never resolved.
These unresolved traumas and conflicts then get passed down to subsequent generations of children and grandchildren, through our DNA, and can show up in our lives as chronic illness (or even a repeat of similar traumas, situations, experiences, characteristics and even the emotional imbalances that our ancestry suffered). In other words, their unresolved psychic distress can become part of the cellular memory we inherit. Until the issue has been successfully settled or resolved, it can continue to trigger illness in the generations that follow.
