The biblical definition of a generational curse is believed to be something that is passed on from one generation to another due to rebellion against God. In other words if there is divorce, poverty, incest, anger problems, alcoholism, or any other "ungodly" pattern that has marked the family, it's likely a generational curse. The bible says that these things are tied to bad choices that we make in our lives, I agree. I also believe that before you can do something about breaking generational curses, you first need to be aware that you are contributing to the generational curse by knowing your family history. We all have a duty to break generational curses so that our children and their children and future generations are not affected. Science has proven that trauma from generations past can be passed down through genes, this tells us a lot. Let's just take a moment to think about the trauma that our ancestors endured during times of slavery. All of the pain and abuse that they went through. Can you fathom the thought of seeing your loved ones being raped, beaten, brutalized, and killed over and over again? Or being raped, beaten and brutalized and then forced to raise children from that act and continue as if it never happened? That's exactly what our ancestors endured over and over again countless times for years and years. That pinned up pain, heartache, anger now runs through our veins and it's proven by science. Yes we have a right to be angry, yes we have a right to be hurt, but we can't let that pain run our lives today. Let that pain drive your ambition. Let that pain drive your purpose. For years I was not aware that I was living my parents broken marriage, I had no idea, was unaware. Through counseling I realized that I was living a generational curse. Over time I found that there was so many aspects of my marriage that mirrored a lot of the pain and trauma that my parents lived in their marriage and they lived the same marriage and relationships that their parents lived....generational curse. I was faced with the exact some questions my parents had, should I stay in a toxic relationship for the sake of the children to keep our family together? Or should I take a stand and break a generational curse of trauma and abuse that has affected my family for years and years? At the age of 13 I was raped by a stranger that I have never met, not knowing at the time that this has also happened to my mother at the very same age, coincidence? I would call it a generational curse. I have a duty to my children and future generations and so do you to break any and all generational curses that is impacting your family. If you are unsure if you are living a generational curse then you probably are and if you are sure, I urge you to seek help. If you don't know where to start, I can help. I am an avid advocate of counseling and therapy and we all can use some sort of mental health therapy just by what our ancestors endured. If you don't want to do it for yourself, do it for your children and theirs and future generations. We owe it to ourselves.
