Ancestral healing

As the last of summer passes us by, we find ourselves moving into the dark half of the year, to the festival of Samhain and the Celtic New Year.

Samhain is the Day of the Dead in Celtic tradition and marks a time when the veil between this world and the otherworld is thin, a time when our ancestors and loved ones who have passed draw near and we can sense their presence more keenly. It falls on April 30th in the Southern Hemisphere. If there was the perfect time to to embark on a journey of healing your ancestral traumas it would be at the time of Samhain.

Ancestral healing is a practice that involves addressing and healing unresolved issues and traumas that have been passed down through generations in your family lineage. It is based on the belief that traumas and negative patterns can be carried in your DNA and energy fields, affecting your physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.

By addressing and healing these ancestral wounds, you can release inherited patterns that may be impacting your life in negative ways. This can lead to a greater sense of freedom, inner peace, and personal empowerment.

Ancestral healing can be helpful for a variety of issues, including emotional trauma, physical health problems, relationship challenges, financial difficulties, and more. It can also help you connect with your ancestors and gain a deeper understanding of your family history and heritage.

There are different approaches to ancestral healing, but common practices include meditation, prayer, ritual, and working with a therapist or healer who specialises in this area. I offer private sessions that can directly tap into your ancestors and am offering a free Vision Journey to the Ancestors on April 30th - see below for details.

There are several signs that may indicate a need for ancestral healing:

  1. Repeating patterns: If you find yourself repeating patterns in your life that you can't seem to break, such as relationship issues or financial struggles, it may be a sign that there are underlying ancestral issues that need to be addressed.

  2. Chronic physical or emotional issues: Chronic physical or emotional issues, such as anxiety or chronic pain, may be linked to unresolved ancestral trauma or energy blocks.

  3. A sense of disconnection: If you feel a sense of disconnection from your family history or heritage, or if you don't have a clear understanding of your ancestral lineage, it may be a sign that you need to explore and heal ancestral wounds.

  4. Intergenerational trauma: If your family has a history of trauma or difficult life experiences, you may be carrying the energy of that trauma in your own life. This can include experiences such as war, migration, or addiction.

  5. A desire for greater understanding: If you have a desire to learn more about your family history or to connect with your ancestors, it may be a sign that you are ready to explore and heal ancestral wounds.

Overall, if you feel stuck or blocked in any area of your life, or if you have a desire to connect with your ancestral lineage, it may be worth exploring ancestral healing as a way to promote healing, growth, and connection.

Angelic Reiki is a form of energy healing I offer and love that works with the divine energy of the angels to promote healing and balance in the body, mind, and spirit. It can be a powerful tool for supporting ancestral healing in several ways:

  1. Clearing ancestral energy blocks: Angelic Reiki can help clear blocks in the ancestral energy field that may be preventing healing and growth. This can include releasing negative patterns, beliefs, and emotions that have been passed down through generations.

  2. Connecting with ancestral guides: Angelic Reiki can help you connect with your ancestors and ancestral guides, who can provide guidance and support on your healing journey. This can include gaining insights into your family history and understanding how it has impacted your life.

  3. Healing ancestral trauma: Angelic Reiki can help heal ancestral trauma that may be impacting your life in negative ways. This can include releasing emotional pain and wounds that have been passed down through generations, and replacing them with positive, healing energy.

  4. Creating a positive ancestral legacy: Angelic Reiki can help you create a positive ancestral legacy that you can pass down to future generations. This can include releasing negative patterns and emotions, and cultivating positive traits such as love, compassion, and forgiveness.

To support you in your journey of Ancestral healing I am offering a 3 session Angelic Reiki package including 3 vibrational essences for only $300 - click here for more details:
