Last week I wrote about shedding the past -- and that in order to truly live a life of peace, prosperity and connection - to become masters at manifestation - at some point we must shed the past. Fully.
When I say past I mean other lifetimes, and the ancestral, cultural, karmic, and childhood imprints we absorb. This is why I LOVE energy healing, specifically shamanic energy healing.
This week I share about healing the past.
Shamanic energy healing is a highly effective way of making the unconscious conscious --and healing deeply rooted trauma that we cannot always get to in talk therapy.
When I speak of trauma I am speaking of things we have experienced in this lifetime and also imprints/patterns that have been passed down from one generation to the next. These imprints can be addictions, abuse, poverty, anger, fear...etc.
In order for us to access who we are and bring forth our unique gifts, we must BOTH shed and heal. Shedding leaves space, a clearing if you will.
Healing brings about harmony with the energy of what was "shed". Meaning, if we experience abuse of any kind or absorb imprints that have been passed down through generations/ancestors, this energy gets stored in our body. Whoever we absorbed this energy from-- this relationship needs to get healed.
The energy of anger/hate/bitterness binds us energetically to someone as much as love does. Think about that. This is one reason we practice forgiveness. Peace doesn't come with hate. The two can't co-exist.
As we shed the energy, and heal the relationship (there are many ways to do this in shamanic energy healing - even if the person is on the other side) we are ready to fill the "space".
What do we fill the space with?
We fill it with the song of our soul and the music in our heart. We fill the space with our truth, positivity, life affirming energy, and beliefs in order to create the life we desire.
One of the reasons I am drawn to shamanic work is the extraordinary transformation I have witnessed in my own life and the lives of countless others when we focus on healing as well as releasing the harmful imprints (ancestral/karmic, etc). There is a ripple effect that happens as well. As we heal individually -- healing also happens for those who are or have been connected to these harmful imprints. It's so beautiful.
In our Western mindset, which values the complex and material over the energetic, I understand how some of these concepts can seem odd. I actually find this work simple, logical, in harmony with nature and as such - powerful.
As we open our individual hearts and minds to healing harmful imprints, we also impact the collective. How cool is that!
We have the power to shift the world to peace.
