Our ancestors are more connected to us then we may think, and they play an important role in what we are handed down from family member to family member, both the good and the not so great.
For most of us, many of our ancestors also encountered hardships and emotional trauma that never got resolved before they died and as a result were passed down from generation to generation, and these patterns can often feel like a curse.
From a spiritual standpoint any unresolved trauma in our ancestral family line creates energetic patterns that in turn can create roadblocks and patterns in our lives today, often times stopping our connection to joy, abundance, our own authentic power, and understanding of why we are here.
How do I know if I need Ancestral healing? Many of us already have a feeling, may suspect, or can even can pinpoint certain patterns, issues and concerns that have been handed down through their family line, often for generations, imagine healing these patterns!
Some areas to be aware of: ~ You don’t feel like you belong in your family, or have always carried a feeling of disconnection.
~ Your family often tells stories of how the family is "cursed" or how all the men in this family die young, or all the women are alcoholic etc....
~ Seeing patterns that are extremely obvious that run down your family line and affect your life. You feel the burden of those who came before you.
~ Feeling that you are not sure some thoughts or feelings are your own, and that keep coming up, regardless of how much personal work you do. A feeling of being stuck in your life.
~ Family members who blame everyone else continuously without ever wondering why or being able, regardless of the cost to self reflect.
When we have an ancestor from our past that needs healing they hang on energetically to our family line causing us to have a harder time letting go of things that no longer serve us, and leaving us with feelings like we are stuck, or we may notice that we repeat the same patterns over and over, knowing that this is causing us pain, but feeling like there is no way out. I have come to understand that ancestral healing is extremely beneficial for most people because when we release and heal these ancestral patterns and collapse them, any blockages we have in our lives clear and heal, and this in turn clears the way for our children and future descendants.
What does an ancestral healing session look like?
Regardless of if we are in person or via distance/skype or zoom we will begin by taking some time to get to know one another and I will ask you a series of questions as I seek to get to know your ancestral lineage better. If you were adopted I am still able to do this work, not to worry.
When we do an ancestral healing, I journey with the aid of my guides and seek to discover where these ancestral patterns are occurring in your family line and where healing is needed.
Working with my guides we track to find the cause of the original ancestor and the pattern that has become pervasive in your family line, and together we then work together to make sure that this ancestor who had not crossed over go to the collective of ancestors on the other side and then collapse this pattern, taking it down through all generations, backwards and forward to yourself and your descendants, creating healing, and stopping the negative pattern.
After the work has been done there is often a ritual or ceremony that is required for the completion of the work, and this piece is an important aspect of the healing, as we take responsibility for our ancestors and work to heal them.
For some it can be helpful to continue the work as they wish to deepen their understanding of working with helping ancestors and possibly moving into lineage clearing, in which case a four hour session might be the best choice.
