As my regular readers know, I’m big on clearing issues and have been quite fascinated about ancestral fears and beliefs and how they pass down. So a chunk of the time I’ve been spending on Steve Nobel’s many meditations has been spent on various ones focused on clearing ancestral lines of fear and negativity.
Such guided meditations are always intriguing to me as I rarely can point to a tangible provable outcome in the world and say it resulted from meditating. But doing these many clearings has certainly had my energy shifting and buzzing and left me feeling often unbalanced and… odd.
Yesterday I decided to dust off an old meditation I was taught 30+ years ago by the transpersonal psychologist who introduced me to all this “spiritual stuff”. In this one you follow a specific path to reach a council of guides and then ask questions.
One of the areas they spent time on was all this energy shifting. They told me I’ve been shifting so much so fast it’s all having trouble catching up and that the huge amounts of ancestral clearing are also creating big shifts for thousands of cousins, many of whom are quite distant on the family tree. Again one of those things you take on faith … or not. Up to you.
I believe we can have an impact. The meditation left me thinking about what I know about my tree and the current climate of fear among a portion of the populace who are allowing the fear to dictate their support of some pretty scary stuff.
On my mother’s side, a huge portion of the direct line ancestors were Scots-Irish, which has led me to study up some on the migration experience of this group. It turns out many of these Presbyterians, who moved into mountain areas of the south and then fanned across the south and beyond, wound up becoming Baptists or other fundamentalist denominations because of the dearth of Presbyterian ministers in those remote places.
While my direct family stayed Presbyterian and became more urban, I’m pretty sure, based on the history, a lot of those cousins in other branches of the family became the folks who vote for Republicans, join the KKK and like the current so-called President.
In a big wave of realization I felt the clearing I’ve been doing reaching down through the ancestral lines and then flowing back to heal people I don’t even know but am related to in the present.
My long research into genealogy has led me to realize we’re all related to millions of people we don’t know, with surnames we’ve never heard. When you start clearing and healing ancestral issues, you impact a wider range of people than you know.
For instance my 10x great-grandfather, William Brewster, has millions of descendants currently. He and his wife are just one couple among 4,095 sets of 10x great-grandparents, each of whom probably has millions of current descendants.
In the notion of one big web of energy, these family ties show how deeply we really are connected. So imagine working on clearing your ancestral lineages of fear and negative beliefs and then that your clearing is energetically impacting millions of others. Imagine a whole bunch of us doing this clearing can help to heal fear for millions upon millions of people.
There are lots of ways to work on ancestral issues, so if you’re not drawn to these meditations there are plenty of ways you can work on healing. Most shamanic traditions, for instance, include practices for healing ancestors. Long distance Reiki can be used through time as well as space, so you can send healing to your ancestors. Several years ago I wrote a post with a list of suggestions and a description of a ceremony I led.
Steve Nobel’s Transmissions often contain a thread of healing for ancestors and I’ve done too many to be able to point you to every one containing such a thread, but these three specifically address ancestral and karmic healing and I’ve found them very powerful:
Imagine the possibility a whole bunch of us could help to heal the fear…
