4 Healing the Wounds of your Ancestors

“… Our ‘job’ here is to be the light that we already are and reflect that light outward so that others might find their own way in the darkness.  The wounds we carry dim the light. As we do the work of transforming our wounds into gifts that help to bring about healing, we literally begin to shine. We become radiant beings who reflect their true nature, which is luminosity. Or, as Carl Sagan said, ‘We’re made of star stuff.’  We are light beings as much as the stars.  It takes courage to do the work of healing.  It’s not comfortable, convenient or easy.  It’s not ‘business as usual,’ or maintaining the status quo. It means the end of denial, pretending and avoiding. It means being radically honest with yourself and those around you.  This kind of honesty won’t necessarily win popularity contests, but it will recalibrate your DNA.  If we’re healing and transforming the wounds we carry from those who came before, we’re also changing the trajectory of those who come after. Those who follow will have a different standard as the foundation for the linage. If we break the chain of addiction, violence or other inherited, limiting beliefs, our children and their children and those who follow them are given access to possibilities not available to the ancestors.  And thus, the entire lineage evolves….”
