I had never thought about clearing my ancestral lineage until it happened for me.
There was something about it that really drove me to understand and clear my family line.
It was almost like I just had to.
And many clients I work with feel the same.
They just know they need to do this without really consciously knowing.
It took me a full two years to really understand why people, in droves, are stepping forward to clear their lineage.
And why is it so incredibly powerful to heal our ancestral lineage.
You see, the gap between generations is continually expanding.
Think about the life difference between our great-grandparents and grandparents.
Not a lot of difference, right?
So many similarities in their lives in all areas.
Their beliefs and views on relationships, religion, money and life … very, very similar.
Not a lot of difference between these generations.
Many of them lived in the same communities and had neighbours for life.
If you took your great-grandmother and your grandmother at the same age and stood them together, you probably might not be able to identify who was who.
It’s a similar story going back through the generations.
Differences in the way generations think, belief and play out life is very small.
However, between your grandparents and parents, things really started to shift.
The differences in these generations began to stand out.
Our parents generation stepped into a whole new set of beliefs.
There are quite a lot of differences in relationships, marriage, money, technology, fashion, education, raising children and travel.
Now the gap between our parents and ourselves is big.
This generation alone, it’s a big gap in how we “do” life.
The belief systems we now hold is so incredibly different to our parents.
Women can run businesses. Men can raise children.
Beliefs around money and time have shifted.
Our views on religion and sexuality have completely shifted.
We can travel to the other side of the world for a short holiday and think nothing of it.
We almost have completely different lives to our parents.
Technology has influenced this.
But I’m talking about the belief systems. Our generation has almost rewritten the rulebook on all beliefs.
And the gap is very big.
Now the gap between our children and us is extensive.
Whilst it looks the same on the outside.
The internal, spiritual and emotional gap is massive.
These children are so different to us.
The opportunities they have in life and the belief systems they can step into in all areas are completely different to just one generation ago.
Teenager entrepreneurs are starting successful businesses in high school.
University dropouts are creating billion dollar apps.
This generation is creating (mostly forcing) change to our education system and health system.
The gap between us and our children is so vast it’s mind boggling when I think about my 3 year old son and the world he is growing up in, the opportunities he will have access to and how rapidly belief systems are changing.
Then I often think about what my grandchildren will be like in terms of this gap and just how much this gap is increasing and speeding up with each generation.
The challenge is the belief systems of our great-grandparents are still present. A set of belief systems that are well and truly out-dated.
The difference between our great-great-great-great-grandparents and our great-grandparents really isn’t that much.
Life was the same.
The impact the beliefs from our great-great-great-great-grandparents to our great-grandparents isn’t that huge because life was pretty much the same.
There will be a few differences but generally beliefs around money, roles of women and men, religion and life were very similar.
Yet the difference between our great-grandparents and our children … it might be easy to sum it up by saying they look like two difference species, the gap is that extensive.
Why is it still present?
Because belief systems get passed down the family line and remain present in our lives.
Beliefs live in our subconscious and influences behaviour.
Ancestral influence is one very big chunk of subconscious patterning.
And we don’t know what is in there until we go looking.
Why you are being called to clear your lineage?
We are the first generation to have access to the tools and resources to clear it out.
It’s like trying to run an iPhone 10 on early mobile phone software.
You remember those?
My parents first mobile was in a big zip up case that had to be carried like a brief case.
This is why there is a big movement towards healing your ancestral lineage because at some level, we all get that these programs are so out of date, an upgrade is needed.
It is the biggest gift you can give your children and grandchildren.
I look at my son. He has a true entrepreneur spirit that he inherited from me.
Just recently I said to my husband that he will probably have his first business by the time he is 12.
For his second birthday, I bought him his domain name because I just knew, one day, he will be needing it.
I didn’t step into my entrepreneur spirit until I was 31.
The belief systems of my family and the era just didn’t support it.
By clearing out our family line, I have opened a doorway for my son to really step into who he is without the baggage of the past influencing him.
Our children and grandchildren just can’t embody these new belief systems, the ones that are so vastly different to just a few generations ago, when we are riddled with out-dated ones that just are no longer helpful or supportive to us today.
Clearing your ancestral lineage really is one of the biggest gifts you can give your children and future generations.
