Troubled Fathers and Sons



Often I read clients who have lost their father - but he was not just their father - he was the power and strength that held the family together, especially when it came to creating abundance. He is often a man who made millions, sometimes over and over in his lifetime. As with all families, one of the children has karma with the father - be it positive or negative. Having the father's love, an most of all respect, is what life becomes about - marrying the right person, carrying on the family business, and all that goes with it.

Then something happens and the father is gone - the business in financial ruin. How can the son (or occasionally a daughter with a strong male soul) build the empire set in motion by their father's karma with wealth and power? It can't be done, leaving the son confused as how to maintain the energy (consciousness) to bring wealth back to the family.

The expression "Like father, like son" often applies - they just life differently. As all things are genetic, more often that not a father with issues will have a son with his own set of challenges. Alas in a world where we have learned how dysfunctional people are, and how important professional help is ... something happens ....

Bernard Madoff

Mark Madoff Suicide- Bernie Madoff's Son Found Hanged In NYC Apartment   Huffington Post - December 11, 2010
Every day for two years, he carried the toxic burden of a name that meant fraud to the world. On Saturday, the eldest son of disgraced financier Bernard Madoff hanged himself in his Manhattan apartment, another casualty in the saga that sent his father to prison and swindled thousands of their life savings. On the second anniversary of the day his father was arrested in the worst investment fraud in American history, Mark Madoff, 46, was found dead in the living room of his SoHo loft. He was hanging from a black dog leash while his 2-year-old son slept nearby.

Mark Madoff and the Sins of the Father   Wall Street Journal - December 22, 2010
Wall Street and the larger financial world have seen their share of suicides. Some have been related to work, some not, and I've covered a few of them. They keep coming. Earlier this month, a banker in Michigan is believed to have shot himself, and a 27-year-old Citigroup Inc. associate took her own life. Investigations into the role that their jobs might have had are continuing.
