Everywhere I turn, I am seeing beautifully gifted and talented women afraid to step into their psychic and intuitive gifts.
Out of fear of what others will think.
This coming out seems to be triggered by something as simple as linking your healing business page to your personal Facebook page.
Heaven forbid your parents find out?
What will your friends, who you went to high school with 15 years ago, think?
What if your family bring it up at a family get together? What will you say?
Will your corporate sister or cousin think you are a nutter?
There is still, running through our collective energies, the belief that being a healer, psychic or even doing a few things spiritual makes you a nutter, a fraud and is something to be shamed and hidden away.
So you play small, keep it to yourself or segregate your friends and family in separate lists in Facebook.
I remember changing my Facebook business page to “Helena Ryan ~ Ancestral Clearer” feeling very, very nervous. What will others think? Especially those who have known me a long time. I mean, I went from the Army to primary school teaching to now being a professional healer. Not exactly a well mapped out career path, I know.
It took quite a lot for me to really step in and own this aspect of myself. The reality is, these are my gifts. My natural talent that is here to share with the world. No matter how much I tried to hide them away, they found a way to infiltrate my life.
The fear was intense. I come from hardworking stock that took real jobs and real work. My siblings and cousins are all corporate. My husband’s family are all hard-working.
And here I am, the only psychic in both families to come out the closet.
I didn’t actually fully step into it until my lineage was cleared. It had been so blocked and shut down, I just couldn’t fully own it until then.
What I saw in my family history and now through the lineage of hundreds of ancestral readings I’ve completed are two key events in our history that have caused great fear in “coming out”.
It started when women were killed for their gifts.
But I’m not talking about when women were being killed for being a witch but about our family connection to that. When our ancestors have witnessed these events happening. Not just in European witch hunting, but through all cultures healers and gifted psychics were shut down.
Let me explain. For many of the women I work with, this often how it plays out.
A family member, going back hundreds of years, finds themselves in the town square. A woman or women (and I’ve seen up to 9 at once in some readings) are stripped down to their underwear, which is usually a white petticoat type dress, and are accused of heresy and witch craft. Once enough drama and hype has occurred, they are executed. Usually throat slit. This does a nice job of keeping everyone else the village in line.
Your family member is watching this. It’s usually a young girl, sometimes a young boy, in their early to mid teens. They see a mirror in these women.
These women aren’t witches. They are no threat whatsoever, only to the Church’s control (more on that later).
These women are connecting in their own way, through their gifts, a way that brings them joy and gives them peace in their difficult lives. They may have conducted healings for others and been paid. I’ve never seen a women executed for black magic or actually doing terrible things.
These family members see this being reflected in them and they shut down their gift and beliefs and vows form, usually along the following lines:
If I practice my gifts, people die
I must hide my gifts
My gifts will kill me
I will never practice my gifts again
My gifts must be a secret
I cannot charge for my gifts
These beliefs and vows lock in and shut down the gift. They push it all away out of fear.
The dramatic and barbaric way these executions happen intensify the fear and the beliefs.
Now imagine if your family members were involved in the execution rather than being executed. Most don’t actually want to do it but are also under control.
Time moves on and organized religion takes over the world.
It teaches us that men can only connect in with God, chosen men.
And in order to connect in you require to go to a building.
Alters and shrines within our homes disappeared. Our gateway to connect was taken from homes thus creating a huge decrease in being able to tune into your gut instinct and intuition. With that spiritual tools were treated with superstition and disappeared.
Organised religion built up fear by telling people they were sinners and had to prove your worth by giving to the Church. I’m not saying organised religion is wrong or bad. For most of my clients, the experience through the family line has been very unhelpful when it’s come to their gifts.
Beliefs from organized religion that come through the line include:
I am not good enough
God is punishing me
As a women I cannot connect with God
I must work hard
“Good girl” tendencies
Worth of women
As children are born showing gifts, often saying things they know beyond knowing and seen beyond seeing, they are shut down. It’s wrong, bad or evil to be speaking of such things. The psychic line that is coming down through the generations continues to be shut down.
Now, we are the first, sometimes the second generation not be attending Church or to hold the philosophies of Church teachings much lighter than our Grandparents and Parents have and we are definitely no longer being executed for meditating or conducting healings.
But that doesn’t mean the belief systems have disappeared. They continue to get passed down the line through the belief systems and DNA.
As a healer, psychic or intuit, how is this impacting your business?
How does it stop you from marketing yourself?
Fully owning this aspect of yourself?
How much of your gift does it block you from connecting to?
And are you ready to fully meet it?
What to do:
- Create your own alter at home.
- Forgive your ancestor who shut down the gift.
- I’m sorry
- Please forgive me
- I forgive you
- Call in the wisdom from your ancestral lineage
