I always stop here on the Arkansas River in Kansas. It's become a place that holds the energy of my paternal roots for me. My grandparents, my father as a little boy and his brother, lived here in the 1940-50s. I never got to know my grandparents fully, as they passed on when I was young.
Walking along this river, I allow time and space to open. In order to connect to my paternal lineage, to the water and the land. To tap deeper into the ancient stories held here for millenia. To feel my roots as if they were alive, growing in these soils. To feel my grandparents as if they too were walking along the river, or working on the farm. To call to them and to listen.
I offer gratitude and pray for guidance and strength. I tap into what I carry ancestrally that is ready to be released. That which they had carried, and I now carry, that is no longer needed.
We all carry the imprints of our ancestors, whether we feel them or not. They live in our blood, our bones, our DNA. Their memories, emotions, traumas, hardships and strengths are carried for generations and impact our lives. To tend to these roots is incredibly healing for our lives and emanates through time.
My lineages on both sides have appeared in ceremonies and dietas. They are there when I'm in prayer, or connecting to the land, always offering their kind and undying support, showing me my path of healing and growth.
We are not separate beings here in this life. Honoring our own lineages, we root ourselves in our unique place on Earth. Knowing that we carry something from beyond through time.
We are deeply nourished and grounded. And we build our present lives in alignment with our highest vision, by honoring and healing the past.
Ancestral work is a dimension of my private work with people. In both Shamanic Energy Healing and Plant Medicine Mentoring + Integration Sessions, we heal and reconnect to the past.
This is the last week to sign up before rates increase this fall.
May we all be supported by our roots. We are much stronger and more supported than we know.
