Let Freedom Ring- Part I
Have you ever paused to look deep at yourself and think, wow I am acting just like my mother? Or have you noticed yourself developing that same high blood pressure as your father? Even coming to a conclusion that you will not be able to find love because your grandparents and/or parents split? It is so interesting how no matter how far you travel or how much you try not to be like family, in many ways you always are.
With the current energy of the universe bringing to light family dynamics and more of an awareness of self, I have been pushed to really redefine my relationship to family and even more so connect and learn from my own rich ancestry. As much work as I have done with my personal ancestral healing journey in addition to my work as an Ancestral Healer, over the past few months I have had to step all the way back to the basics.
OK, LET’S TALK SCIENCE…..
DNA is the informational master book for any species, holding the instructions an organism needs to live, develop, and even reproduce. When relating modern science to ancestral healing, I like to say that the energies of your ancestors are carried down through your DNA. The Law of Conservation of Energy states, ‘energy can neither be created nor destroyed; energy can only be transferred or changed from one form to another.’ It has taken me years of healing, learning, and growing to come to my current belief that your DNA allows you to uncover more than just modern scientific findings about your ancestry or health. With that keep in mind that science can only test and uncover so much, the richest and truest lessons + blessings our ancestors have left for us are still waiting to be discovered.

NOW, NOT SO MUCH SCIENCE…..
Your physical characteristics, mental thought patterns, emotional triggers and even natural gifts are linked into your ancestry. Explains why certain ‘groups’ of people can have similar strengths and behavioral patterns. Your ancestral line carries the energetic holdings of your family which includes the history, emotions, beliefs, and more. Connecting and relating to your ancestry can be an essential component to your identity and sense of belonging as a person. I think of ancestral healing as not only the deeper understandings of who you are and where you come from but also the bringing forth of the support needed to transcend negative patterns that lie in our ancestral lines. Healing is more than just clearing through the negative, it also allows for the opening up to the wisdom and blessings that are long deserved.
The turning point in my spiritual awakening was when I looked at myself in the mirror and saw just how sick and tired I was of being sick and tired. The look I saw in so many other women in my family with the same mindset that, 'carrying around our suffering is the only way we can continue to live'. The mentality and emotional weight that when you are surviving you can not dream. I did beg to differ, which meant I needed to get real with myself and start answering some of my own questions.
Are you ready to heal?
