Healing your Spirit
Do you feel strongly connected to an era in history, or to a certain country, person or family from the past. Some people have dreams, flashbacks or visions that are so real that they feel like memories about times in history.
A country you’ve never visited feels like home, people you randomly meet feel like family, and some people feel like enemies.
For sensitive people there may be very good reason for this. We have the ability to reconnect with our lineage and therefore heal our ancestral past.
In order to create good health and to heal fully sometimes it means ‘healing the past’. Most hereditary illnesses have come from a hereditary mindset.
In this sense history really can repeat itself.
Ancestral healing involves healing your ancestors’ unresolved emotional issues, problems or trauma. In so doing, it releases you from any energetic patterns that link you to them – patterns that can have an inhibiting or disruptive influence on your life today.
This Healing process is important because we are impacted by emotional and energetic patterns from prior generations in our family. Some of these can create obstacles in our lives, blocking our pathway to joy, abundance, authentic power and unlimited possibilities.
Since energy is never lost, but simply changes form over time, emotional issues or problems that were not dealt with by your ancestors, or not fully resolved, can ‘hover’ in your energy field today, creating an imbalance or roadblock – also known as a healing opportunity.
Ancestral Healing can transform energetic patterns that are not in your highest good, or are preventing you from carrying out your soul’s mission and life’s purpose. If you are experiencing recurring patterns where things get in the way of feeling satisfied, enriched or successful, then ancestral Healing may be the missing link that can free you to attain personal fulfillment.
Revering our ancestors
Most indigenous cultures believe that their ancestors are a vital force in their lives. This is especially true among Native Americans and the Aborigines. For example, the Navajo honor the perspective of seven generations of their ancestral lineage when making a significant decision that affects their family or community. Even though the ancestor’s body is no longer alive, that person’s soul is thought to be very much alive.
Ancestral Healing is based on the belief that what happened in your family, before your current life, is present or alive in your energy field today. Accordingly, any unresolved conflict your ancestors had – including unhealed emotional wounds, damaging judgments and other limitations – may be in your energetic grid, since this is part of the larger energy pattern of your entire family.
Ancestral Healing allows us to make peace with the members of our family, going back many generations.
Healings generally go back 3 generations but occasionally involve 10 or 15 generations of family members, dating back hundreds, if not thousands of years.
Healing = Freedom
By connecting with your ancestors in this profound way – expressing love, compassion and gratitude, and forgiving them for whatever they may have done, thought, said, felt or experienced that needs to be healed – you can release and free both them and yourself. In so doing, you can break any energetic cords or patterns that are no longer serving you, and turn your life around in a most positive way.
