When I first started working with ancestral lineage I often wondered, why is it we heal 7 generations of ancestors?
And not 3 or 10 or 20?
I intuitively knew this.
Ancient wisdom works with 7 generations.
Yet I couldn’t ever find out why 7.
It was some time into my ancestral healing journey that I began to really understand why it is we heal 7 generations.
7 generations is the living memory.
For most people, we know or have those who know and can tell us about our parents and grandparents.
If we are lucky enough we might meet a great-grandparent.
I met one of mine however I have heard stories from my parents and grandparents about my great-grandparents.
They are still in our living memory.
That is 3 generations above me that has living memory.
I have my son and I will get to meet his children one day, my grandchildren.
And if I am lucky enough I will get to meet a great-grandchild.
If I don’t, my son and his children will be able to share stories about me.
I will be in living memory of my great-grandchildren one way or another.
That is 3 generations below me.
That is 7 generations altogether.
This thread of 7 is so important when it comes to ancestral clearing.
It weaves through as a fundamental basis of work.
It is through the healing of our future 7 generations that we release and unlock the energy and beliefs that are being passed down the line so they no longer impact us.
