Breaking trauma cycles

Breaking the Cycle: How I Overcame Intergenerational Trauma to Become a Peer Advocate

By Angela Colón-Rentas

You may wonder: How did that young Puerto Rican girl who very much disliked seeing a therapist when locked up in the juvenile system end up working in the mental health field as an adult? Simple answer: I wanted to help youth in crisis. And it was meant to be.

Be silent & Listen to Elders


Positivity changes a mind,

A kind word lifts many burdens,

A good deed makes a heart heal,

A gentle voice lifts many broken hearts,

Always say something nice,

Always say something with care,

Always say something in kindness,

Always say something genuine concern,

Always say something with compassion,

Always lift someone up,

Always give what you’ve got,

Always extend an out reached hand,

Always try to patch, mend broken hearts,

Always do something to heal shattered souls,

What goes around,

Eventually comes full circle,

What’s unleashed is delivered,


You might be needing,

To hear echoes of yourself …

Wounded Child -Ancestors

Our wounded child is not only us; he or she may represent several generations of ancestors.

Our parents and ancestors may have suffered all their lives without knowing how to look after the wounded child in themselves, so they transmitted that child to us.

So when we’re embracing the wounded child inside us, we’re embracing all the wounded children of past generations.

This practice doesn’t just benefit us; it liberates numberless generations of ancestors and descendants. This practice can break the cycle.

-Thich Nhat Hanh The Art of Communicating

We all have generational shadows. These shadows are handed down like waves of deep conscious pain travelling through the human condition like a virus.

When I find myself experiencing the crashing wave of generational shadow, I find strength in knowing I am doing the work for all of my ancestors, all of my descendants, along with myself. And yes, the rest of the world as well. We are all just walking each other home.

Having to explain why you can’t have sex : new born & Mom

A man out of balance in a distortion that is primal and it sure does demean the person who dare .

Sadly I had the experience of force , 6 days after giving birth and it was I believe primal ; marking of property and jealously of his own child .

Wounded Child

With practice, we can see that our wounded child is not only us.

Our wounded child may represent several generations.

Our mother may have suffered throughout her life.

Our father may have suffered.

Perhaps our parents weren’t able to look after the wounded child in themselves.

So when we’re embracing the wounded child in us, we are embracing all the wounded child in our past generations.

This practice is not a practice for ourselves alone, but for numberless generations of ancestors and descendants.

China Protesters It’s Power to the People

Walking like you have 8 thousand ancestors backing you up is pretty dang awesome to consider each Chinese protester has theirs and the samara and soldiers that were so crafty !

It’s a beginning just as the COVID was attributed to them ; they now reject the ” science ” the shame and blame and STAND .

As it should be 👍💯🙏❤️
