The influence of previous generations, their trauma and triumphs, continues to exert a strong effect on their descendants.
Where there remain unresolved and unspoken issues from the past, it acts like a ‘gap’ or ‘void’ that descendants unconsciously feel. Like an unnamed place at the table.
I was guided to write about my experience of miscarriage, as I was helped by a few of the personal stories I read online. If this issue is still taboo, then I hope this also contributes to opening the conversation wider and sharing our loss and suffering with open hearts.

A breaking of the bond between mother and infant can happen at any time - in utero, during birth or while growing up.

Eric Berne, the founder of Transactional Analysis, wrote about hungers at the core of every human being.
You can think of these ‘hungers’ as needs - essential biological and physiological needs to enable each person to grow and thrive.
Meeting these needs in healthy ways helps each person feel authentic and empowered in how they interact with the world.

The body instinctively knows the answer to the question “Am I safe?”
