As we are at the end of October, this special time of the year celebrated in various cultures, I invite you to pause, take a deep breath, imagine behind you generations and generations of your ancestors. Whether you knew them or not, the fact that you are here means they were there. Hundreds of them. All of them experienced this threshold between seasons for many centuries.
Allow yourself to lean back slightly into their wisdom and receive the knowing about this season and what its most precious gift is.
Ask yourself - how can this time be more meaningful for me, my soul, for my family and those I love? See what comes as a subtle knowing within you.
Maybe it is about the lost dreams of your ancestors that you still carry in your bones? Collectively we dream our dreams and some of those that don’t happen flow further to the future, with the hope of manifesting one day. In our world today, with all that is happening, how many dreams become lost? How many will be passed to future generations as lost dreams?
Today, imagine turning to your ancestors and acknowledge their dreams. Honour those that came true and those that didn’t and release any that you might be dreaming on their behalf. 'My dear ancestors, I honour your dreams. I respect your fate. Any dreams I carry on your behalf, today, I return to you, with gratitude.'
Breathe in and out. Continue with your day, maybe in a slightly different state.
I am fascinated by the Systemic Family Constellations work and everything shamanic. I study it, practice it, research it. Here, I am sharing what I learn and hope it can be of use to somebody interested in healing their families, communities and lives.
In 2019 I published some of my poetry inspired by systemic work in this journal. It is available as PDF, Kindle or printed at the link above.
