How often do you think about your ties to your descendants. It has been said that "We are the dreams of our Ancestors". I know that my children, my descendants are my dreams, I dream about their futures and what I can do to make their futures bright . . . as a father that's one of my "jobs".
Now, how often do you look the other direction, into your past. When I do that I discover that many times my ancestors are my nightmares. I see many of the traits that I disliked in my parents and grandparents in me. Things like health issues (genetic bad back for example), my father's impatience, my grandmother's need to control . . . and the list goes on and on. I wonder from whom did my father get his impatience, was it his grandfather, or maybe his great grandmother. I don't know, but genetics and personality traits seem to be passed down from generation to generation. Until we become free of the past, the past is controlling us and at best we have partial freedom of choice.
Unresolved history and suffering is passed down from generation-to-generation and is held in our ancestral lines. This cumulative energy affects our lives today. And, if we don't do something about the unresolved energy from our ancestors then we are likely to pass it forward to the next generation. All of us have the choice of unconsciously repeating the patterns of our ancestors or we can heal them. Through healing the ancestral lines, cutting our cords with the past, we free own health and well-being from the repetition of the past. Once we free ourselves from the influences of the past our freedom of choice is restored and we better reconnect with our souls' unique purposes.
Ancestral Healing is a lessor-known but essential shamanic healing form. You can follow the instructions below and undertake an ancestral healing shamanic journey alone or contact me and I can guide you through the process.
I wish you a successful journey and increased freedom of choice as you move forward. Please contact me if you would like to schedule a session.
