Ancestral Healing Meditation

20190713_143325From our monthly 4th Reiki Circle last night.  We opened by calling in the energy of all the directions.  Then, I began the meditation:

Envision a great tree magnificently standing at the edge of a field.  As you approach it, you are humble to it’s enormous trunk and branches.  This tree is ancient and has been here a long, long time.

As you approach, you offer a blessing to this great tree of cornmeal or tobacco.

With your hands folded in Gasho, you ask the tree for permission to enter into the earth realm, beneath the ground, down deep where it’s roots are connected to healing mother Earth.

The tree permits you to begin entering down deep into the earth, into the depths where the traces of your ancestors have lived and now lie.  Their mortal remains now part of the Earth.

I invite you to call upon the ancestor line you may be working with or feel most connected to-on your mother’s or father’s side or perhaps a spiritual lineage, such as that of the Reiki founders.

All those who have gone before are connected to you and now you to them.

They have had their own challenges when they were alive, and now have much wisdom to pass along to you.  Their experiences have taught the how to navigate the world with more ease.

I invite you to be open to the wisdom they have to share with you and also to ask any questions you might have for them to hold and reflect on.

As you connect to these ancestors, always ensure they are bright light.

Let yourself receive this guidance now.  Not forcing anything, but naturally allowing what needs to unfold to do so.

Ancestors often communicate in symbols colors or feelings, so notice what you notice if you attentions is drawn to any of these areas.

Give yourself permission to receive this wisdom.

I will play the drum for several minutes to allow any additional information that might need to come through. (Drum beat for 3 minutes)

Now, coming back to your breath, to your body in the chair, your feet on the ground, notice where you are now in body and mind.

Take your time coming back.  Rub the tops of your arms and legs and take a stretch if you need to.

Take this experience into the Reiki sessions we will now share in.

(We concluded the circle with giving each other Reiki sessions and closed each of the directions).

If you’d like to join us, we hold ancestor Reiki circles every 4th Wednesday, 7-9pm Georgetown Reiki Circle, 5701 3rd Ave S.  www.reikitrainingprogram.com
