What if you could journey to the past to help your ancestors who are still struggling with emotional or physical wounds?
And what if assisting these long-lost relatives could also help you and your living family heal now?
No matter who you are, you walk through life carrying the burdens and blessings of your ancestral lineages within you.
Current research suggests that our very DNA can hold the traumas of our ancestors — and even increase the likelihood that we’ll develop stress or anxiety disorders.
The good news is that there is something you can do to help mitigate these inherited patterns AND to draw from the wisdom and cultivate the sense of belonging that are available to you through your connection with your ancestors.
Through the practice of ancestral medicine, you can connect with your ancestors, assist the dead who are still in need, and transform intergenerational burdens into ancestral blessings.
Psychotherapist and ancestral medicine teacher Daniel Foor experienced this firsthand...
About 20 years ago, in a ritual to connect with a family ancestral guide, I made contact with a spiritually vibrant, but historically distant, European ancestor from my paternal grandfather’s lineage.
I asked this supportive ancestor if there were any among the recently deceased that could use healing. Immediately, I knew I would visit with my father’s father, who died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound when I was seven years old.
His death rocked the family, especially my grandmother, who had been home with him when he took his life. Two of her sons, including my father, were first responders with the local fire department at the time.
As a child, I had been shielded from the impact of this loss, and before this day I had never sought contact with my grandfather as an ancestor, or considered the possible effects of his death on the family.
It wasn’t until this moment, 15 years after his passing, that the ancestral guides and I contacted my Grandpa Foor in spirit, and determined he was still in a state of confusion. He appeared to me as fragmented, and was missing part of his energy body in his abdomen, where he had shot himself.
The ancestral guides healed this wound and helped him to understand who we were and what had happened. My grandfather then shared a kind message for my grandmother, which I later shared with her while we stood together at his grave.
That pivotal day of ancestral healing ended as the guides and I helped my grandfather start to find his place among our loving and supportive ancestors.
Everyone has loving and wise ancestors, and by reaching out for their help you can access guidance and support for your personal and family healing.
By connecting with the helping ancestral guides in your lineage, you can open the door to break free from painful legacies that no longer serve you.
You can get to the source, the very roots of your unease, to find more peace and the rootedness you crave — in your body, your family, and your culture of origin.
When you’re freed from the burdens of your past, you can finally and fully express your unique gifts, passion, and purpose in the world...
