Have you noticed how much trauma there is in the news? There are volcanoes erupting, wars, struggles against oppression, demonstrations, immigrants risking their lives to flee dangers at home, children separated from their parents, kidnapped, people assaulted, raped… Each one of those things (and many more besides!) causes trauma and, if we put them all together, we can safely conclude, I think, that there are a huge number of people living with trauma today.
I read somewhere once that the effects of war linger in a population for three generations after its end. And I find myself wondering, could that explain the current situation in Palestine? The genocide against the Jews in Europe left deep scars and trauma. The victims have now become the perpetrators. It is a common pattern. People like R. Kelly, who were sexually abused as children, sexually abuse others as adults.
Yet equally common is the pattern of remaining a victim, at least in certain situations. Victims of abuse, rape, muggings often experience these things repeatedly. People like Harvey Weinstein and Bill Cosby don’t abuse every woman they meet. Both a victim and a perpetrator are needed for abuse to happen, for the pattern to be repeated over and over again, for it to continue through to the next generation. How else does one explain the continued sexism, racism, and homophobia we see today?
Movements such as #MeToo, #BlackLivesMatter, #MuteRKelly are about breaking this pattern. They are about bringing to our conscious awareness that these patterns exist and something must be done about it. Perpetrators must be stopped, victims must be supported and allowed to heal, and that it is everyone’s responsibility to make sure that happens.
Bringing thoughts, behaviours, patterns and feelings to our awareness is the first step, but in order to see real change, it is imperative that we shift our resonance, both individually and collectively, to a new, higher frequency. We need to let go of the outdated beliefs and patterns holding us trapped in this cycle and begin resonating with new beliefs that empower us to create a new reality for ourselves and others.
Resonance Repatterning (RR) is a tool that allows us to do this almost painlessly. My colleague, Tabitha, and I have decided to team up and facilitate this for everyone. Simply give us permission to proxy you into this group RR session below, fill out the rest of the information (all submissions are anonymous) and rest assured that your energy will be included in this session, whether you find this post (and recording) today, or five years from now. By including yourself, you will not only be shifting your own patterns and beliefs, but those of the whole of humanity. Try it out! What have you got to lose?
