Healing can come to us in many forms. And sometimes what we believe is complete healing is only the beginning of a process that spreads over the course of life lived as an adult. If you find yourself triggered as you move through the various ages and stages of your life, you may have deeper layers of healing to go through.

You said that so many of the women in your family had been abused. That's not unusual in families where abuse is swept under the rug. And it's even more disturbing that you would be beaten for touching yourself when your mother knew, she KNEW, that someone had to have taught you, meaning she knew you'd been abused. This is highly disturbing, and sets the premise for blame and shame to be carried by those who were victimized. I can only hope that you've learned from this whole experience that if your own child in the future were heaven forbid abused, you'd know NOT to do to that child what was done to you. And not to sweep it under the rug.

I send you love, light and healing energy. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.
