If you accept that you are here for a specific purpose of collective healing, and that your unique purpose is to heal a specific thread of the ancestral line, you begin to realize that you’ve inherited a set of wounds that influence your choices and behaviors and experience of life today.
And, here’s the part you may not have considered. You will pass on these wounds, if you do not do the work within your own self, starting right now, to heal them.
In just the same way your parents passed these wounds on to you, in spite of their best efforts. And their parents to them. And so on and on, going back to the beginning of us as people.
Throughout the past generations, we didn’t think much about what we passed on at the cellular (epigenetic) level. We only thought about what we passed on via the surface in the form of money, jewels, land and other assets.
And it’s only recently that anyone other than the most wealthy even gave it much thought at all. Everyone else, lived their lives and died, owning nothing, passing on nothing, or so they thought.
But we’ve recently begun to become aware that certain aspects of us result from genes that were turned on and off in our ancestors, based on the lifestyle choices they made. The study of epigenetics, which first came online only in 1942, has had a resurgence in interest since the 1990s.
And now, it turns out, that these lifestyle choices and events that our ancestors experienced don’t just affect our genes, but the exact experiences our ancestors had “can reappear in the behaviors and symptoms of our children.” Mark Wolynn, It Didn’t Start With You: How Inherited Family Trauma Shapes Who We Are and How to End the Cycle, page 117.
What we have not been seeing, and is just now becoming clear, is that all along we’ve been passing on something far more valuable, pervasive and hidden than money and illness, and that something is our culture, our ways of being, our neuroses, our thought patterns, our control mechanisms and paradigms.
And in just the same way the Kings and Queens could plan for and prepare to leave their riches behind, and we can pre-emptively prevent disease by looking at our genes and making choices to excise parts that would manifest in illness, now with eyes wide open we can see the true nature of our family wealth, heal what’s been unseen and leave a legacy of conscious evolution.
It is our job, those of us with parents still living and children growing up, that are in the best position to do so.
I call to you now to awaken and see your role as a Priest or Priestess of your lineage, incarnated at this time to heal those parts that we do not want to be unconsciously passed down any longer.
Just like we can genetically modify crops and breed for the super crops, we can genetically modify our species. It does not require us to rely on the super freaky AI technology or the singularity for us to do it.
It simply requires us to come ever more deeply into our own humanity, our feeling self, our empathetic and scared heart, and be gentle with each other and ourselves, especially our parents and our kids.
When we think of inheritance, money is what most often comes to mind.
But there is another inheritance that is far more pervasive, far less conscious and far more important to plan for, though most people don’t. And it is far more impactful.
Even as I am intimately familiar with it, I find it hard to write about. The words don’t come easily because the concepts feel so new and maybe even foreign.
Money will come and go. The inheritance of who you are, will not.
And our purpose is to heal the wounds of these past ancestral lines so we can live into the next stage of evolution with more freedom and liberation to manifest the dreams of our hearts.
Each human cell in our body has 2 intertwined strands of DNA. One from our mom & one from our dad. The extent to which we feel complete and resolved around love from and for our parents, influences the level to which our cells feel whole & right. No amount of personal growth, altered states, transformation or meditation can make the cells in your very being feel integrated, if we cannot access the love to & from our parents. Our connection to our parents is the original portal to life itself. It’s how we link into the great chain of being. If we can find what’s sacred in the connection with our makers, we’re more in touch with our divinity.” — Annie Lalla
