Healing our Ancestral Hearts (3).png

We are the extension of our ancestors’ story - in our bones, blood, hearts and Spirit. In shamanism, compassionate Ancestors give us direct spiritual guidance and it is important for us to honor them and intentionally connect with them. Shamanism also gives us the chance to heal some of the sticky wounds that pass through ancestral lines and manifest in our lives, despite our best efforts.

In this 4 part series Carla will first take your into a deep journeying to your compassionate ancestors, through your Ancestral Tree to connect with your guiding Compassionate Ancestors, honoring them and deepening your relationship. In the following three classes, experienced SpiritHealer School Shamans will share very different approaches for healing your Ancestors unhealed wounds, the nagging traits of physical function and emotional attitude that are rooted in us by virtue of our DNA and our social fabric.

After the ancestral ceremony I am really well, thank you. I slept for almost two days - the heavy cement block on my chest has gone, no more sabotaging voices. I feel light, connected and happy. This is not this kind of ecstasy after which you go down again - it is a continuous, calm state of well being. I journeyed again to where we’ve been.

I guess, my point of view, my understanding changed a lot - I really see the world (and worlds) in the different way. it’s hard to explain. I felt so old and tired before, now I feel of no age :-)

Many things lost their heaviness with one cut only.

Thank you, ciao ciao
Joanna

These sessions will release your Ancestors' trauma, set you free to define your own expression - and bonus - open the path for all the ancestors' descendants to heal. We really do change the world!

We culminate with a powerful ceremony where you and your allies can release your tangles and fill your web of connections with shimmering healing light.

This is our time. As we step into our Shamanic Power, we are the light beings - we are the ones we have been waiting for. Let’s gather and clean our houses, and then shine the bright light across the world.

with Carla Meeske, Renee Bissonette, Lori Banks, and Penni Thorpe.

The Ancestral Tree is our gateway to our past, present and future.. We begin by merging with it, and then meeting our primary Ancestor Guide for this series. We will also meet 3 more ancestors, each with special gifts for us. These important ancestors will be cornerstones in your personal sacred circle for the rest of your life!

Preparation: Go back through your family records and find a picture and a story of an ancestor who is important to you. Share that image and story with us on your check-in. (We will assist with technology).


Class 2 - Anubis and your Ancestral Wounds - with Renee Bissonette

Renee Bissonette:  I am a human and animal lover by heart. Social worker by formation, I worked ten years with people with addictions. Animal communicator since 2004 (Carol Gurney, CA), I prefer to teach people to communicate themselves with animals, as I believe each person gains in developing their own connection with the world and beings around them. I learned shamanic practice with Carla since 2005, and my passion for this work and relationship with my beloved teachers and power animals has grown since then. I am honored to act as a bridge for their wisdom and healing.

Anubis is the Egyptian God of the protecting the Dead. He knows where all the old bones lie, and what stories they tell. This really matters, because some of our ancestors need to be healed so their wounds stop manifesting in our lives. Anubis will work with you to release the traumas that are your “birthright” by healing the stories the ancestors tell. Renee will lead you into Anubis’s world, and you will heal the stories of a wound that is troublesome in your life today.

Preparation: We will begin with an intention to repair and old wound. Consider something you really want to release and heal, a genetic condition, a familiar trait, something that came to you through your lineage.



Class 3 - Healing our Lineage with the Sidhe with Penni Thorpe

The Sidhe (the Faeries, the Shining Ones) and humans have a shared ancestry, and at this critical time in human history the Sidhe, are returning to support deep and profound healing for human kind and the entire planet. We humans struggle with suffering and trauma passed down through familial lines, blind to the shimmering light inside us that resonates with our “other” ancestors - the Sidhe. In this journey Penni will help you connect with your most ancient Sidhe Ancestors and this Shining Ones will bring their shimmering light into the darkest recesses of your lineage, clearing suffering once and for all.

Preparation: Consider your life - is there an ancestral pattern that is currently causing challenges in your life? Nagging traits of physical function and/or emotional attitude? In class you will request your Sidhe ally to uncover the roots and transmute them into pure light, to be shared with your entire family line going into the past, present and future.

Class 4 - Clearing our Thin Crystal Line with Lori Banks

Our bodies are amazing! We are our ancestors expression of the divine universe - a network of light and fascia, and all the other organs and forms. Every single cell comes from the information our ancestors passed to us through their egg and seed. We are our ancestors, and we are the light of the star, the shimmering crystals of the earth and the powerful force of water pulsing through everything, powered by the pull of the sun and the moon. Lori will take you on a Shamanic Journey deep into your cells, to the scared circle where you DNA is combines and formed - so that you can instruct your DNA to express the perfection of your soul and the divine purpose you intend, kissed by the charm of your Ancestors connection to love for you!
