How about reflecting on the importance of our ancestors? Shamanism preaches that ancestral practices are in our cellular memory and can be rescued through simple attitudes. Activities such as gathering people around a bonfire, contemplating and feeling the energy of the environment, telling stories or dancing in circles remind us of the ancestral teachings of silencing and feeling the power of nature to heal, rebalance and strengthen our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.
Over thousands of years, the development of civilizations kept these practices away from us, which bring us full development and offer the opportunity to transform ourselves. Therefore, our unconscious still stores this knowledge in the form of symbolism that, when awakened through shamanic rituals, awaken in us more love, compassion and understanding of nature and all the beings that inhabit it.
Through Shamanism we can rescue and honor our ancestors, through valuing nature, meditative silence, taking the right steps and being aware of the mistakes that made us who we are today.
The influence of ancestors in our lives
According to the precepts of Shamanism, the ancestors are present in our genes. Therefore, from this point of view, it is possible to state that our cells keep remnants of familiar behaviors and influence the way we perceive life. This means that some behaviors and characteristics of our personality may have come from ancestral customs, from our family lineage.
That’s why reconnection with the ancestors would help us understand who we are and where we came from. We need to heal wounds from our past to reorganize our present and envision a new future. We also need to know and honor what our ancestors left us.
Breaking negative family patterns
Shamanic culture suggests that, between successes and mistakes, our ancestors contributed to transform our current reality. In this sense, the objective of reconnecting with the ancestors would help to understand who we are and where we come from. We need to research and understand what was negative for us, so as not to pass it on to future generations.
Ancestors influenced our physical appearance, behavior and energy, as well as our choices, fears, dreams and beliefs. To honor our ancestors we need to forgive them. This act helps us heal negative ancestral patterns like guilt, hate, rejection, etc.
How to break free from ancestral patterns?
The first step is to try to recall or discover past memories. We usually compulsively repeat exactly what we don’t remember, such as secrets, family lies, or any attitude that is based on fear, shame or guilt. The second attitude is to identify the family’s beliefs, as we usually live according to them. When you realize a negative family belief, start using some positive affirmation that transforms the way you’ve been living certain situations. Change the way you behave and also affirm that this is the last generation that will be affected by this negative pattern. The third step is letting go of the belief that you are always right, taking responsibility for your mistakes and yourself. The goal is to understand that you can always make choices in life, but that those decisions will not always be the best ones.
From then on, you will be open to healing, self-forgiveness and forgiveness to your family members. How about starting a new cycle by forgiving yourself and breaking negative patterns of your ancestors?
“Our past does not end, it happens every day. Much of our personality comes from ancestral legacies. Our personality is in part the result of a lineage from our family members. We bring an ancestral heritage both in terms of values and negative patterns”, Denise Linn, author of the book “Descendentes”.
