I have been contemplating the concept of family karma recently. My family has a history of incest/sexual violations, mental illness, and violence. This is true of both sides of my family, my father’s and mother’s family. Because they are the same, my parents attracted each other. As a result, this family karma is deeply entrenched within my family.
I believe this is the karma that I must overcome in addition to my own created karma from past and present lifetimes. What I have observed about my life is that I have been attracting male sexual predators some of whom are violent as well. I tend to attract mentally ill women and men into my life, and many of them also suffered sexual or physical violence in their past.
Under the Law of Attraction, we attract who we are, so I have been zealously trying to heal my sexual injuries including incest and sexual assault/violence that I suffered as a child and as an adult. I also know there is mental illness in my family as I also suffered from depression and anxiety.
Since practicing my Emotional Release Practice, yoga, Reiki, energy healing, acupuncture, art, dance, and music therapies, psychotherapy, hyposis, meditation, body work, among other healing modalities, I am attracting very different people into my life for the very first time. The amazing thing is what attracted or drew me toward those individuals earlier, I feel repulsion or dissonance with them now.
I now recognize the symptoms of mental illness and emotional instability, and I immediately feel the repulsion internally. The feeling is that of discord, discomfort, and distance. I do not feel comfortable experiencing this dissonance in my energy field. I am extremely relieved to experience these new feelings, as my old patterns no longer feel right or comfortable to me now. May you find a new way of feeling and being. (Copyright 2016 Awakening Journey with All Rights Reserved)
