I offer Reiki sessions to those who would like to learn how to contact their Ancestors and start the process of healing. It may take 3 -5 sessions before one makes progress. It is best to contact your Ancestors through the Reiki process. Here is what I recommend before Reiki sessions.
The First Part of the Healing Process
Start with doing some family genealogy. There are free sites like familysearch.org, when you look up someone, see if you can find a military card, notes or remarks from those who are working on your tree also. This may give information about the person and a greater insight into who they were. Read up on the history of the location and what events were happening, wars, etc. which might cause traumas, wide spread illness, racism, severe poverty and separation of families. These are traumas which can affect descendants down the line. If you are affected with generational trauma, this meditation can bring to light some subconscious answers.
List your traumas, one by one. Some people will have 3 or 4, some may have 20, don’t worry about the amount, start working one by one. Start with the first one, and go through the chakras starting at the root. As you go through the chakras you will note your feelings. You may only get through a few of these as it takes time to process. Don’t worry, take your time with healing. If you are ready to begin, then follow the suggestions below.
Begin with blessing the space for meditation. Make sure there will be no interruptions. You may want to bless the space with sage or other herbal smudge you may have. Have a note pad and pen and maybe some calm music. This is sacred self-work. Ask your Ancestors to be with you during this process, when you are comfortable, begin.
Root Chakra – Muladhara Ask yourself, how has this trauma affected my sense of security, my home life, my ability to manage my finances, my connectedness to the Earth, my grounding abilities, my feelings of deserving a life of happiness and worthiness?
Sacral Chakra – Svadhisthana How has this trauma affected my ability to create, to work on projects which are in alignment with my core values. How has this trauma affected my parenting skills, do I discipline fairly or am I too strict or too lax due to guilt. How has this affected my ability to love my partner and nurture my family. How has this affected my ability to express my sexual nature without fear?
Solar Plexus Chakra – Manipura How has this trauma affected my ability to set boundaries with my spouse, or potential partner, strangers, friends and family. How has this affected my ability to stay strong in my beliefs and hold true to my sense of morals and ethics. How has this affected my ability to hold my ground during confrontation and how has it affected my ability to be courageous and strong?
Heart Chakra – Anahata How has this trauma affected my ability to feel compassion for others. How has this affected my ability to accept and give love. How has this affected my ability to love my friends and family without resentment because of disagreements which hurt me. How has this affected my ability to understand the grief I feel is really a part of love. How has this affected my ability to let others have a life uncontrolled by me, because my time is valuable, my ability to love myself is healthy, and serves to care for myself physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. How has this affected my ability to give and receive unconditional love?
Throat Chakra – Vishuddha How has this trauma affected my ability to voice the traumas which happened and are waiting to come out rather than stay in my body and make me sick with dis-ease and emotional distress. How has this affected my ability to speak up for myself when others have invaded my personal space, or have tried to control me. How has this affected my ability to speak kindly and lovingly to those I love and care about. How has this affected my ability to roar in protest at the injustices of the world and to speak bravely for those without a voice of their own?
Third Eye Chakra – Ajna How has this trauma affected my ability to see through those who use trickery and lies. How has this affected my ability to see when others are genuine and authentic. How has this affected my ability to see danger and to tune into my intuition to protect myself. How has this affected my ability to trust my visions and insights rather than second guess myself when others do not believe or agree?
Crown Chakra – Sahasrara How has this trauma affected my ability to recognize grace in the form of synchronistic events which hold beautiful but simple rewards for me. How has this affected my ability to connect with Creator and experience unconditional love. How has this affected my ability to receive inspiration for spiritual guidance?
The Second Part of the Healing Process
This is Reiki. It is receiving healing energy from a Divine Source, God, Goddess, Creator, Universal Energy. It is grace which travels through your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual body to heal in an effective and unique way. While in a meditative state, you uncover answers while making contact with your Ancestors. Understand we need to learn the how and why’s of our Ancestor’s behavior before we can start to feel compassion for the people who hurt others, who hurt us.
This is sacred work and it is your work and sense of responsibility which prompts you to want to heal your parents, your Grandparents, Great, Great and so on. In another direction, you are also healing your children, their children and so on.
I believe we have evolved to a place where we are taking responsibility for the children of the future, with alternative energy instead of oil, environmental issues and climate change. Learning how to heal ourselves teaches our children the art of healing which will benefit them in years to come.
The third part of this process is healing. Provided you have done some genealogical research, experienced the Chakra Meditation, and have experienced your Reiki sessions, and met with your Ancestors for guidance, then together we take what you have experienced and work on some solutions. Compassion is the end result, and as you will see, there are many ways to get there. Once you achieve understanding and compassion for your Ancestors and those who are still here, only then will you be able to heal yourself of the traumas you have experienced and provide your family members with tools to help themselves.
