It Runs Deep and It Sucks !
This is a title that came to me during some of my own exploration and healing work around family of origin. I was born the oldest girl child of four siblings, and two older brothers (which I did not get to know until my adult life), in a Hispanic family, and raised Catholic.
The family environment went from violence to suppression, I was emotionally abused, beaten, molested; I felt that I had little to no value. I learned to distance myself and lived as if removed
some kind of invisible fence. I often a puzzle as to how I survived; but that is what all organisms do, we survive if we possibly can and adapt ourselves accordingly. I was required to take on many care-giving tasks, especially the emotional healing of my father.
I learned to be overly responsible at a very early age, a
gift and a curse.
For as long as I can remember, people have come to me with their problems. I was fascinated by philosophy and psychology at a very young age. I was searching for answers, trying to understand what the hell was going on in my world. I did not turn to God; I felt I had been ignored and betrayed by him.
After some years of what seemed like devastating choices, still only in my early 20's, I discovered the world of holistic health. This expanded my awareness which thankfully lead me to spirituality. There followed more years of poor choices and their consequences, driving me to want to know myself more deeply.
Today I am happy to find myself with a rich spiritual life; studying and soaking up the findings of the more contemporary scientific community of neuroscience, heart coherence studies, quantum physics, epigenetics and brain plasticity. This all corroborates what I have known intuitively for so long, I feel affirmed and supported by my own essential self and my healing path !
