What Is Ancestral Healing?
The Ritual Framework
Each session is anchored in ritual safety through the practitioner’s facilitation and connection with their own wise and loving ancestors
Step 1. Assessing the wellness of your 4 primary blood lineages
You’ll be guided to gather insight about the overall health of the lineage as a whole. This step will help us to better understand the trouble in each ancestral line and it’s impact on your life. To ensure safety, there is no direct engagement/connection with the lineages (or individuals) at this step.
Step 2. Connecting with a well ancestral guide
After the assessment we can discern which lineage would be most helpful (and usually most well) to begin the work of connection and healing. You’ll be guided to meet an ancestor on one of your lineages. During this time you’ll be able to gather spiritual knowledge about this line, their time on earth, as well as their blessings and burdens.
Step 3. Healing the older dead
With the guidance of the ancestral guide and the ones before, those not yet well in the lineage will be contained in a cocoon of healing and prayerful intention. At this step, we’ll check in with the guides to see if some of the older dead are ready to ancestralize. During this process you allow the ancestral guides to facilitate the healing work.
Step 4. Healing the recent dead
At this step we’ll slow down the process to ensure that the older dead have integrated and are well received by the ancestors. Offerings will continue to be made throughout this process (typically after the session). Again, we will look to the guides for moving the recent dead out of the cocoon and into the realm of ancestors.
Step 5. Embodying & extending blessings
Once all of the dead have ancestralized, integrated, and are well seated ancestors, you will be guided to receive the healed energy of the lineage into your physical being. A further fanning out of the healed lineage energy will be offered to extended family, those still living, and to the larger collective.
Reminder: This approach is driven by the well ancestors. You will never be asked to engage with toxic energy from the dead who are not-yet-well. For ritual safety you will engage this work embodied, grounded, and with protection and boundaries.
