I've been in recovery mode following an ancestral healing workshop Raven Many Voices held last Saturday (Nov. 22nd).
In this workshop we met guides, ancestors (many of them) and worked through clearings and the merging of their gifts and knowledge. It was a great workshop and renewed honor and love for those that came before us, as well as our descendants into the 'future.'
Our ancestors are the direct chain of our DNA progression and ultimately leads all the way back to the first forays into physicality. This is a little different than past lives that don't involve the same DNA links (although ultimately we are all connected). Although past lives could weave into and through ancestral lives as well.
Everyone has ancestors that had health and emotional issues, and we learned in this workshop that we can resolve and heal those issues and positively affect every single ancestor (and future descendent) following the individual that initiated the issue in the first place.
We did several healing meditations covering different scenarios, but I am only going to talk about a couple of them.
In our first meditation we met volunteer guides that had no issues, but wanted to help. They were to guide us to the ancestors we needed to meet to resolve the issues we were interested in. We had a guide for our mother's side of the family and one for our father's side.
My mother's side guide was a young girl named Josephine and she was accompanied by my deceased sister Jan, who was angelic in her presence. My father's side guide was a healer of some kind (based on his clothing and hat) and he said his name is 'Larry.' Not sure I buy that as his real name considering the period clothing, but whatever, I'm fine with Larry.
I have been struggling with chronic sinusitis, sinus polyps, and sinus infections for years. So my goal was to find the ancestor that inadvertently created this issue, whomever that may be. Running backward through time, and passing over a large number of ancestors, I came upon the ancestor we were seeking. He was sitting in a stone room, such as a cold castle or stone house, and I guessed somewhere around the 14th century maybe. He was injured in combat when his face was smashed in by a mace (or other bludgeon) and disfigured for life. He had constant infections, and died a lonely death believing he was unlovable. I spoke with him, reassured him, and tried to show him that his beliefs and inability to resolve this life was affecting generations of descendants with health issues, and that he could be healed right now. I asked his family to come forward and for angels to illuminate him, and he successfully passed through the doorway to his afterlife, healing him in the process.
Whew, what a relief for him, and I had high hopes that his healing would also heal my DNA along the way. I won't go into the whole process of the healing for that is for Raven to teach, but it was a very good thing to go through this and resolve it.
I can say that my sinuses have felt better in the last two days than they have for awhile, and I was on Prednisone as recently as last week.
We did some 'bulk' clearing of ancestral baggage in more meditations, and those were great too.
One of the last meditations was to heal a general issue of our choice. I chose to heal, or maybe improve upon the German rigidity and seriousness I see in my family (particularly my Father) and myself. In this meditation I went WAY back, long before there was a Germany, to when we had off-world beings ruling over humans, and cross breeding, as well as, manipulating DNA. It was the human leadership, and a particular human leader that was the ancestor in question. It was this behavior and role that was affecting the seriousness and feelings of needing to be a strong leader which had trickled down through the ancestral DNA. It was an interesting journey, but it wasn't as precise as the previously described meditation.
So we had several clearing sessions, each with a different approach to the clearing, and different ancestors. There was a palpable change in the room dynamics as the ancestors present (you can think of them as ghosts or spirits if you want) changed from anxiously wanting help, to feeling healed and free from their burdens.
I highly recommend the workshop to resolve issues in your life and to help your ancestors and free them to help you. Raven also facilitates these (and other services) in private sessions too.
On Sunday I had a severe headache and generally felt crappy, which is pretty much the normal course for me when doing a lot of clearing at once. I'm feeling a little better today and should be back to normal by the end of the week.
