At this time of year, it is traditional to call forth the ancestors, to seek their wisdom and honor them. It can also be a time for ancestral healing.
We carry the strength and wisdom of our ancestors within us. And we also carry their wounds – their heartaches, deep disappointments, traumas. These wounds can interfere with our ease and well-being in life. These wounds can be healed within us. The really wonderful thing is – when we work with our ancestors to heal these wounds, we heal them for the whole of our lineage. We heal them for the ancestors. We heal them for future generations. We heal them for ourselves, affecting everyone around us and, hopefully, inspiring others to work with their lineages.
Earth Healers are usually catalysts for healing within our families, directly or indirectly. We are the ones who say “no more” to disharmonious or inauthentic thought or behavior patterns. We work within our own lives and beings to shift those patterns. Here, we extend this healing to the wounds of the ancestors which are living on within us. We work to shift patterns born in the lives of the ancestors which have embedded themselves in our lives and beings. In this way, we create a better life for ourselves, help heal our ancestors, and support a better life for future generations (just a quick reminder that time is not linear…but that’s a bit of a tangent…)
The veil is thin this weekend. It’s a good time to call on the ancestors – to ask them to work with us. It’s a good time to ask them to heal with us – to shift our lineages for health and happiness and purpose. It’s a good time to shift toward love.
