Accumulation of Ancestral Karma
The simplest example of this stored-memories phenomenon is instinct. Instinctual behaviors are passed down through genes via genetic memory and have a strong impact on the brain.
The theory that memories are passed down the family tree has seen proof based on an observation of animal behavior. In one study, rats were introduced into a maze. What they learned about the maze was passed down to their children. The children regained the knowledge before examining the maze themselves and knew exactly where to go.
All of the available studies suggest that genetic memory also bears the records of traumatic events that happened to anyone in the bloodline and passed down generation after generation.p
