One of my projects for 2017 is to record a healing meditation for each moon cycle, Full Moon Meditations, each of these are a gift for our Rebalancing Woman community. The first one, for January, brings us the gift of connecting with the strength and blessings of our own ancestral lines.
For many of us, our family histories are not easy ones. I know this is the case for me, and much of my own healing and parenting path has revolved around saying ‘stop’ to patterns of anger, fear, addiction, (self-)hatred, and violence.
These patterns are difficult to change because they become part of us on a deep level even before we develop the capacity for speech and reasoned thought. How many of us have sworn, “I’ll never say that to my kids”? and yet suddenly found the very words and voice of a parent or other adult ‘speaking’ through us those exact words, tone, wounding before we even notice it happening.
I believe many of us are called to healing our family patterns and lines at this time. We do this work for ourselves and for our children, but it also echoes up the lines – all healing is ancestral healing.
It is great work, and hard work, but we are supported in it.
January’s Full Moon Meditation is one such support. The focus is on helping us to sort through the tangled mix of threads we have inherited, to connecting clearly with the strength and gifts that are also a part of our personal histories, so we can bring these through, deeply present, into our own lives.
