Abundant Gifts of Ancestral Healing

Abundant Gifts of Ancestral Healing

 

Ancestral Healing (aka Family Constellations) is a beautiful healing process that reaches the level of truth and reconciliation where conventional wisdom fails to arrive. This wisdom looks at the individual as a living family tree with roots in ancestral and global history. It reveals the interconnections between our present and our ancestral past to bring the complexity of our human lives to light. This systemic lens reveals the hidden mysteries of our lives, and real solutions begin to emerge. 

Some of the many gifts of Ancestral Healing are –

 

Hidden Solutions

From time to time, we run into situations where conventional wisdom like Psychotherapy, Positive Thinking, Law of Attraction, and Visualizations fail to help. At best, we learn to manage and adapt to our conditions. When nothing else works, Ancestral Healing usually does. This process accesses a field of consciousness that is invisible to the conscious mind. Our intention for truth and reconciliation helps us travel through space and time, to meet our ancestors, history, and past lifetimes and clear the echoes of the past. 

 

Freedom of Free Will

On one level, we all have free will, and on another, there are forces beyond us that influence even what we desire. Sometimes in life, we end up making destructive or impulsive choices that we later spend a lifetime regretting. Ancestral Healing reveals how the hidden and unresolved forces of our lineage show up in our life demanding resolution and rest. When we acknowledge them, they also bless us to live freely. The freedom of choice that comes from such healing is very different from the western understanding of free will.

 

Claiming our Desires and Life Force

Sometimes in life, we don’t know what we want, are unable to manifest what we want, or do not feel satisfied after getting what we wanted. This usually happens when we are entangled with someone else’s story and lose touch with our essential selves. These situations are an indicator of our blind love for our ancestors taking over our lives. With Ancestral Healing, we can move past the failures, losses, and painful fates of our ancestors, and release ourselves from the contracts to finish what they could not. This healing brings clarity into our heart’s true desires and opens our power to create. 

 

Meeting our Cheerleaders

Ancestors celebrate when we move forward in our life. They have the wisdom, truth, and information that we need to succeed in our life and are ready to support us if we allow them. The dimensions where they live also help them learn from our journey. Ancestral Healing opens the pathways of love with these resources in ways never explored before. We witness our connection with our ancestors transcending time and space and learn to actively call upon them for support, guidance, and forward momentum.

 

Grounded Oneness and Compassion

Ancestral Healing shows us the complex familial dynamics, historical and social landscape our ancestors lived through. This truth helps to see their choices in a new light and differentiates the deed (sin) from the doer (sinner). The same perspective when extended to self and others, frees us from the paradigms of right/wrong and good/bad. It opens new pathways of understanding which brings us forgiveness, acceptance and compassion for self and others. This shift is required to bring healing and reconciliation for humanity.

 

Grounded Spiritual Awakening

Sometimes spiritual people lack the psychological growth and ability to hold space for the shadows and traumas of life. Their perpetual positivity disconnects them from the realities of life, and they might create more harm than good. Sometimes people lacking the spiritual path, find themselves drowning in suffering in the face of extreme trauma. Ancestral Healing, when done right has the potential to awaken us in a grounded manner. When we see the complexity of life, love, and suffering so up close, it removes the obsession for positivity or negativity. It frees us from the concept of a punishing God and connects us with spiritual resources beyond us.

Spiritual Death and Rebirthing

Spiritual Death and Rebirthing

.A time comes in a seeker’s journey when life holds them upside down and shakes their everything – the world they knew, the relationships they found love with, and the work that gave them meaning. All the identifications get shaky. Any attempt to hold onto anything that gives momentary relief is destroyed. And they are left with burning ashes of their raw and primal fear. There is nothing to lean onto except fear, loneliness, uncertainty, and longing.

Everything is dying and dissolving at the hands of some mysterious force that seems merciless and benevolent both. Even when one is in pain, regretful of ever dreaming of those lofty goals of awakening and begging to live a smaller life, a smaller dream, this force refuses to give up. Something new wants to birth that is liberated from all identities. With all the safety nets gone, there is nowhere else to go but within. This where we meet with that Divine Grace that has the power to birth something beautiful and lasting from our nothingness. 

The more we surrender to this space, the more we are filled with the sweet pleasure that comes from this mystical pain. It takes great courage to hang in this liminal space and rest in silence and non-doing. We are trained to take charge of our lives . To mold our thoughts into something good. These teachings of our world will play with our minds and challenge the real experiences and wisdom of our bodies. We might also find ways to numb our confusion and pain in some kind of excess. In comparison with others, our lives may feel wrong and lacking. All of that is human and understandable. But this process asks nothing less than our total and complete surrender. The wisdom here is to give in to our unique process of dying without rushing rebirthing.

The more we do that, the more we are surrounded by the energy of extraordinary Grace and Love amidst the immensity of the pain we feel. The rebirthing that comes from such a space cannot be rushed and will not be glossy or shiny for the world to see. In fact, it will be a slow and steady process of tapping into the solid foundation that lies in some deep unrealized aspects of our being. We will fall down and take 10 steps back with every step forward. In all these missteps, a time does come when we start getting the feel of the beauty, knowing, and guiding light within. We start realizing that in spite of how painful it is we don’t want it any other way and somehow, we will make it. We stop looking outside for answers. We start being who we are.

Anyone who has been through such an intense awakening has my utmost respect. Each journey is unique so there is no universal wisdom. A few things that served me were that I felt my scary painful feelings as much as I could. The more I was ready to feel them the less scary they became. I also stopped explaining my life to anyone who was not me. It was my story, it was my process and it was my longing that life was answering in its own unique way. I started radically accepting my life, the whole story with all its ironies and beauties.

There were moments I felt intense gratitude that my heart has the courage for such a longing. Sometimes I felt the rush of excitement. How would that moment feel, when I am awakened enough to find that which I have been longing for all my life tucked right inside of me. The moments when nothing worked, I cried my heart out and prayed. I leaned heavily on the Divine Mother and begged her to take me in her arms. Her soothing energy never failed me and that kept the flame of hope alive. The moments when I was so consumed with grief that I couldn’t even cry or pray was when Divine Grace literally descended down in some way to show me that I am not alone and refused to give up on me. 

In those moments, I knew that which I was seeking, was seeking me as well. And that somehow, we will find each other
