In every generation there is one family member who is chosen by the ancestors, or who volunteered for the job of family healer. The family healer chooses to take a journey through the darkness of both their personal and ancestral patterns, trauma, grief, loss, secrets, burdens, and blessings. This healer may be called the “Black Sheep” or the “Weird or Crazy One” or many other negative names because they are so different from the rest of the family.
The family healer normally asks many questions, not only about his or her life, but that of the family, and what is happening in the world. This healer is often the one who courageously speaks the truth, much to the dismay of those who would rather keep the truth hidden with the skeletons in the closet. The family healer may recognize from a very young age that there are patterns that should not be continued. Never be repeated. Stopped. Often, this is met with great resistance from the family.
The family healer is one who dives deep into their own lives to heal their shadows and asks the hard questions about family secrets, lies, grief and trauma. By having the courage to heal themselves through the dark night of the soul, they also heal the ancestors, their descendants, and all those connected to them.
Are you the family healer?
I invite you to learn more about my new membership program, Ancestral Cafe, on the Ancestral Souls Wisdom School, where we will take a journey into our personal and ancestral lineage healing. In a safe container, the family healer will be able to explore family patterns, burdens, and blessings. We will learn ways to heal and create new ways of being.
The Ancestral Cafe has its first live program Thursday, August 5, 2021 at 11:00 a.m. CST. Until then, you will be able to explore everything the membership has to offer and take advantage of some bonuses!
