There’s a part of me that is continually looking for the thing – the one solution that will miraculously solve all of my problems and pain. Can you relate?
To this end, I’ve explored countless healing modalities, mindfulness approaches, and exercise + diet regimes.
Most were quickly discarded. Some lasted for a number of months or even years. A few continue to inform my approach to healing (and to life).
None offered the ultimate solution – an approach to life and spirit that opened the door to all the healing I desired – until I began working with my ancestors.
Now, I’m not here to say that working with your ancestors will solve all of your problems, resolve all of your pain.
It’s a bit more nuanced than that.
Consider a continuum from -100 to 0 to +100.
- -100 represents the totality of pain/trauma existing in our lineages and therefore in our bodies/lives including our inability to know and live our purpose.
- 0 represents a healthy baseline from which it is possible to start making gains in our lives whether that has to do with living our purpose or healing what ails us.
- +100 represents fully knowing/living our purposes, standing in our full power, and truly thriving.
Those of us with unresolved pain and trauma flowing to us via our ancestry are existing somewhere between -100 and 0 on this continuum.
Yes, we are alive. Yes, there is enough resilience within our lineages and our bodies for us to be here, now, living on this earth.
However, when living lives so encumbered by the pain and trauma of previous generations, we do not have a foundation from which to step into our power, to heal, and do what we are here to do.
Working with our ancestors to heal our lineages gets us to a healthy baseline, to 0 or higher.
We become grounded in the blessings and gifts of our lineage; we have a river of health flowing to us that assists us in healing and in living our purpose.
Our ancestors are no longer a burdensome source of pain and confusion. Instead, they bring immense blessings into our lives.
What I’ve discovered since repairing my lineages:
- some issues just fully resolved on their own;
- those that didn’t fully resolve began responding to approaches that hadn’t worked before.
For instance, I have a lifelong pattern of non-responsive (to any healing approach) migraines.
Now, I simply go into a meditative space, bring my awareness into my body and the migraine breaks. I’ve been doing this same practice for years (in addition to working with countless healers) with little to no effect. Now it works. This shift is nothing short of miraculous for me!
How about you?
How might your life change if you were rooted in the blessings and gifts of your lineage? What might shift, heal, or transform?
