How are you? I hope you are taking the time to slow down and remain present no matter how fast life is spinning. This time of the year is such an interesting time as it always feels like we are trying to balance two different energies. If you live in the northern hemisphere like me, the days are getting shorter and nature is slowing down its pace in preparation for winter. This calls for introspection and quiet, slow times. And at the same time we are counting down the days until the holiday season when there is so much to do, both in preparation for it and during the holidays themselves. I always find these opposite energies so contradictory.
One of my favourite weeks of the year is this one. I love Halloween and being a Scorpio and intuitive I really enjoy this very magical time of the year when the veil between our “reality” and the other worlds is becoming thinner. This year I am particularly sensitive to my connection to my ancestors.
As some of you know, I spent a month in Australia in 2013 (exactly 4 years ago – you can read all about it here and here) and one of the main reasons was to connect with my ancestors. A part of me was longing to go home and although I didn’t know exactly why Australia felt like home (I had never been there before) I decided to go. One step at a time my journey unfolded before me and I connected very deeply with a few places and could feel how something inside me fell into place.
I received messages from Spirit telling me about past lives spent in Australia, particularly in the desert, and I could feel the truth in them.
I’ve also had an amazing FC (Facilitated Communication) and bodywork session with my soul sister S and although we first started with my deep connection to Egypt we quickly circled back to this life, right here and right now. I started by connecting with the land, then my star family and Sirius and then focused on a message from my great grandmother.
This was such a beautiful and powerful moment and I could feel how she was opening up a door into my own lineage and all the wisdom that was hidden inside. I’m pretty sure this door has always been there but I wasn’t ready to see it and accept to step inside until today. And as S so lovingly reminded me, connecting with my ancestors doesn’t mean getting caught up in all the family stories and drama but to simply accept who I am and where I come from. Interestingly enough, my question for our session was: Who am I and what I am doing here?
My great grandmother also told me that my door to connecting deeper with my ancestors and the other worlds is through nature, especially trees, and they will teach me so much more than I can imagine right now. Of course this resonated deeply with me because I’ve always loved trees. I grew up surrounded by huge forests and I clearly remember having tree friends that I talked to. So the journey continues…
If you are feeling called to honour, connect and communicate with your ancestors (whether you know them or not) I would love to share some of my favourite ways to do this:
- Create a space for them. I love creating altars – indoors or outside – so I invite you to set up a special space for them. You can put candles, incense, photos, letters, flowers, crystals or anything that inspires you here. Take a moment to connect with your heart and simply ask.
- Let your soul guide you to meet them. Find a quiet space to sit down and create your own inner journey where you meet your ancestors. Ask them any questions you have and receive their guidance.
- Offer them your gratitude. Sit down and journal/draw/paint and and be grateful for what they have taught you. Ask how you can honour their gifts and what you can do to learn and grow in order to extend their work even further.
I invite you to start by exploring these pathways and then listen within and let your inner guidance show you the next steps. As soon as you open the door you will be guided. The more you act on your own inner guidance and trust it, the stronger it will become. If you need some extra support to connect and receive messages from the non-physical realm you can download my meditation Connect With Your Ancestors & Receive Their Wisdom in my shop here.
Yesterday, I shared on my Facebook page that I also connect with people who have passed during my Private Sessions so if this is something you need right now, I’d love to hear from you. I’ve been connecting with people who have died for years and I am always so touched by how beautiful and deeply healing these sessions are. Both for the person asking and the ones who have passed.
I’d love to know how you connect with your ancestors so please share in the comments!
With all my love and gratitude,
PS: If you need some really intense and super powerful and loving one on one time with me to step into the next level of your life or business, I’ve got 1 Mentoring space left. Get in touch now if this resonates for you! I’m mentoring two beautiful souls right now and the results are AMAZING.
One lovely client (a talented healer and intuitive) walked away feeling in perfect alignment with her purpose, filled with joy and with such a clear connection with her soul’s path and Big Vision for her business. Is this something you long for too? Don’t miss out, beautiful soul.
