Are Our Ancestors Unresolved Issues Still Affecting Us Today?
“The parent/child connection manifests as one link in a long chain of ancestral karma that stretches back through time. Your link to your family allows you to be born into that specific line – it is a link that needs to be understood and respected. In this modern scientific age it is very difficult for people to accept the fact that they are responsible to their ancestors, that they are actually liable for the actions of their ancestors if the resulting karma has not yet been dissolved. Many find it absurd to think that the actions of an unknown ancestor could possible have anything to do with what is happening to them today. But time and time again when investigating someone’s karma, I find problems that stretch back generations. Their spirit is not just an individual entity, it is also part of the family spirit that births and nurtures it.” – Dr. Hiroshi Motoyama
Of late I have been doing a lot of healing. I have been working with my dreams, well I should say Spirit is working through my dreams because on some level it doesn’t feel like a choice to be doing this healing.
Its got a grip on me.
The time is right.
I feel I have been taken on such a deep journey, a sort of life review of all the unhealed pains that I’ve bottled up. In working through them and surrendering to the process I have had memories of my ancestors issues and journeys. I trusted the process, and what I was feeling, and just went with it. I was crying about ancestors I didn’t even knew.
Sins of the Fathers
There was a rhythm to it, I felt as if I was taken on a journey back through all the guilt and damage that my ancestors had caused, which also seemed to parallel my life in some way. Then I seemed to review how my ancestors were wronged.
Whether my ancestors are around me, or it’s their energy inside me pushing to be resolved, I felt like at one stage I was on a mission like the TV show, Sensing Murder. I even consulted a wonderful Medium, Kerry Marie Callander, for her insight and confirming my insights.
My father’s father’s father died in a hotel fire, and I felt that the family perhaps had not mourned his loss because his wife was with another man, funnily enough a man with the same name. He was off gold prospecting and maybe he wasn’t meeting his manly commitments, but as per family constellations work, his place in the soul of the family had been forgotten. I certainly felt that the family secrets were pushing to the surface in his energy.
Here is an interesting extract which is about past lives but I feel its relevant to ancestral memories.
“Our past life selves are not only characters in past dramas, but they also live within us today as ‘sub-personalities’. Their ‘unfinished business’ can make itself known through irrational fears, phobias or patterns that are not easily changed. We feel their emotions; manifest their talents; think their thoughts; are limited by their fears and perpetuate their quandaries often without consciously knowing we are doing so. These are the karmic complexes that are carried forward and re-imprinted in each lifetime essentially causing us to ‘pick up’ where we left off.” – Patricia L Walsh
At one stage I woke up hearing “I was burned”, which as Spirit often does, has multiple meanings. He was literally burned in the fire, I feel he was burned financially through foul play which I think had to do with ownership of land, his family were burned with no inheritance, and as a baby I was burned as my urine was too strong. In Meta Health terms my urine was stronger in order to mark out a territory, much like a dog does, but being so young this energy had to come from ancestral memories or past lives.
Our Body Stores the Memories
As I work through the memories of my ancestors, and my inherited beliefs, I have lost a lot of weight, my anxiety has lessened greatly, and my legs are becoming a lot stronger.
I feel more grounded.
My thyroid was being affected by a pattern of having to be faster, ie: to get out of the burning fire. My adrenals stored the memory that he felt his family thought he was going down the wrong path by following a dream to prospect for gold.
My faith in spirit is alot stronger, it always was strong, but this experience has shown me how much I am being guided.
There is no separation between mind, body and spirit.
What have you inherited genetically that might have its roots in your ancestry?
