Ancestral Healing is an important part of our personal transformation. It is a way of freeing ourselves from debilitating behaviour patterns, cultural conditioning, family grief, shame and sexual abuse that have kept secrets hidden, enabling wounds to continue from generation to generation, with some family members unconsciously playing out the ‘dramas’ in successive generations. It is time to either hand back or transmute the Memory held on different levels of our consciousness. My understanding is that we hold memory of what we have experienced from conception to now, Soul Memory and Ancestral Memory and these strands of memory intertwine. In other words, as a Soul we choose a certain family/lineage as they give us the perfect ‘conditions’ to learn lessons and heal trauma that we carry. Our ‘Life experiences’ are held as energetic imprints in our energy field or physical body and can be transformed so that they no longer affect our health and wellbeing on any level.
World-renowned spiritual master and healer Sai Maa shares that ‘Unresolved ancestral issues can be an obstacle to our Spiritual growth’. Sometimes there is a member of the family that is more acutely aware of ancestors than other members and it may be that they have chosen to ‘do the work’ of healing the lineage so that the next generations can be free of the patterns. In the same way that we hold a memory of what we experience in our childhood, we can respond to a situation that our parents or grandparents were afraid of, for example: fear of water/drowning or something that is not in our conscious awareness but is in the background affecting our response to life.
Generational Trauma can also affect the collective consciousness of a country. I have become very aware in my work that we still hold ‘Famine Memory’ and other collective experiences in the Irish psyche. We are now at a time in our evolution where we have an opportunity to move beyond the deep disempowerment, abuse of power and betrayal that has led to addictions and various mental and emotional health issues and take responsibility for ourselves going forward.
Our Legacy – Our actions/choices today will be felt by the next 7 generations and beyond. The ripple effect of a conscious choice now, extends forward and backwards releasing ourselves and our ancestors from the ‘chains that bind’, freeing us to co-create a new legacy. I invite you to consider our responsibility to ourselves and our descendants. With all the talk in the healing profession about moving into Unity Consciousness /Global Oneness, what does that look like on a practical level?
We can consciously bring Light/Healing energy into all aspects of our Being, honour and release our ancestors by doing the work which supports us in moving into Oneness Consciousness. When we anchor our I AM Presence, the knowing and Light of our Essence we can anchor Love for ourselves and others, and remember our Divine blueprint.
If we were to dream/visualise a Paradise where our children and children’s children live in Love and harmony what would that look like? Dare to dream! We have the potential to change the vibration of our Planet across time and space – by choosing and committing to our own transformation. What is your choice?
