My heart has been deeply saddened by the news these past few weeks of the Residential school unmarked graves for nearly 1000 souls and likely more to be discovered, some saying it is a sign of an early movement toward genocide of the original peoples of Canada. The discovery left many wondering how we can possibly celebrate Canada Day July 1st 2021. I am personally finding it a struggle.
When we belong to or consider ourselves a member of a country, our field of energy plugs into the invisible field of consciousness for the nation that pulls us together – good or bad. From Family Constellation Repatterning work we know unresolved ancestral challenges from long ago can affect individuals, families and communities today and non-coherent patterns can emerge in present day individuals. At the energy level of a country, if we want to preserve what is good about our belonging we must also accept what is bad, own it and make amends.
As a Canadian, I am hopeful that our nation takes an active part in a true genuine reconciliation and rely on government and institutions to do the right thing – finally. Individually, the average Canadian like me, can feel helpless to help.
However, today I feel a movement afoot where we can all repair the trauma that was done, if only to accept and listen to the hurt that has occurred. For example on June 30 radio stations airing across the country was “A Day to Listen” where Canadian radio stations join to amplify Indigenous voices by airing vignettes throughout the day of indigenous survivors recounting their stories. A few of the stories I tuned into were heart wrenching but instead of tuning out I consciously took the time to listen.
When you are “Navigating Your Personal Holographic Universe” I invite you to look for the opportunities where you too can make a difference by willing listening to the story– because listening and accepting is a huger healer.
As was suggested by a survivor on one of the radio vignettes, – while the residential schools of the past may not be my fault, as a Canadian and perhaps world citizen …. I take responsibility and at the very least I am taking the time to listen.
With love and light
