Collectively just now we are in a very uncertain time. The most natural thing to do when we feel triggered by fear or anxiety in our present is to lift up and out of ourselves a little bit. To detach. To become less present in our bodies. But when we do that we become more connected to and influenced by the historical narrative of trauma within our ancestral lineage. The trauma and fear of our ancestors gets entangled with our present fear. And we not only feel our own fear but we begin to feel it through the weight of the ancestors too. And that makes everything a little bit harder.
But we can each individually and collectively tend our safety. And as we each tend our own safety we can support others in tending theirs.
