Ancestral Healing: FAQs

How do these energies get into your Energetic System?

Energy is never lost, it just simply changes form over time. One of Science’s most fundamental laws is the First Law of Thermodynamics, which states that energy cannot be created or destroyed. All matter is made up of atoms that change state depending on the frequency that they are vibrating at. So using the example of water, it can be either solid (ice), liquid (water) or gas (steam). 


Life at its most fundamental level is also made up of light, energy and vibration. So using the same theory, humans are a complex arrangement of atoms that ultimately can never be destroyed – a union of body, mind and spirit. When we die, our physical body returns to the earth but our spirit remains, like the gas state of water, invisible and eternal. So even after death, all of the energies (programming, patterns, beliefs, attitudes and desires) are still present, but no longer have a vehicle in which to express them, since the soul no longer has a human body on the physical plane.


Instead they create an energetic imprint that is passed down through the lineage to you and then to your offspring.

How does Ancestral Healing work?

  • Do you have certain unwanted tendencies, memories, beliefs or traits held in your family?

  • What inherited ancestral patterns are holding you back, which are buried in the depths of your DNA?


You might wonder why certain patterns keep occurring in your family - well the solution can lie within your family tree. Families can be the focus of your greatest love or even your deepest resentment, so its no surprise that what happened in your family before you were born can actually have a powerful influence on your life. 


There is enormous evidence from the scientific community to show that your ancestors contribute considerably to your own health and wellbeing, and to that of your future generations too. Studies show that your actions and choices can affect seven generations before and after you. 


You're born with the memories and experiences of your ancestors imprinted on your DNA. In addition to the character and personality traits that you inherit through your DNA, your ancestors‘ ‘history’ is also written into every cell of your body as genetic memory. Both the physical features and emotional patterns experienced by your ancestors are programmed into your genetic makeup and also into your energetic system. You are handed talents and strengths but also physical vulnerabilities, weaknesses, conditioning, resentments, grief, wounds, memories and beliefs. 


Although some patterns that are passed on to you can be positive, such as a delicious family recipe or stories of bravery and heroism, the hardships can be inherited too. Your ancestors life experiences, emotional pain, health problems and even addictions can be passed down to you and carried forward to future generations. 


You can carry in your body numerous old stories, illnesses and tragedies, in addition to patterns of abuse, addiction and poor health. Your ancestors might have been involved in disasters, famine, wars and financial ruin, and you may hold this intense struggle and survival energy. Also any emotional issues and that were ignored or left unresolved, supressed feelings, damaging beliefs, attitudes and judgments by your ancestors can also remain in your energetic field. Your genetic makeup can therefore call the shots about your health, your direction, and your deepest beliefs about yourself.


Many family energy patterns can play out in negative ways and affect whole generations until healing is found. They can have a disruptive influence on your family life, creating obstacles and energetic imprints that block your chance of happiness and abundance, and leave you feeling stuck. The energy of old family wounds can even influence how you think and behave. They may also develop into physical and emotional symptoms that can leave you feeling powerless until you become aware of them and clear them.

Ancestral healing can clear these patterns, and stop influencing or controlling your behaviour or health. By healing your ancestors' unresolved emotional issues or traumas, this in turn releases you from any energetic patterns that link you to them. By healing and transforming the wounds you carry from those who came before you, you can also change the trajectory of those who come after. The healing also travels forward in your line and resolves potential issues for your descendants, thereby liberating generations to come after you. 

How many sessions are recommended?

Ancestral Healing is an effective way to offer you the chance to address any physical, mental or emotional issue.


During a session, negativity is cleared out of the mind, body and energy field and then the client is infused with positivity. All traumas or negative events that have ever happened can be stored in the body at a cellular level, and these can have a negative impact on health and overall quality of life. They can impact physical and mental health, and also relationships, career, financial situation and home and family life. The session heals a person's emotional and spiritual aspects at a deeper level, which in turn can heal their mental and physical levels. 

Each person is unique and the healing takes place at a different pace for each individual and is dependent on the person and their underlying issues. Several sessions are required to offer the best healing environment for it to maximise the healing process. Often multiple sessions are recommended as it can be too physically and emotionally intense for a client to clear all their issues in a single session, and often things are brought to the surface in the first session which are then resolved during a future session. 


It is important for each client to be involved in the full healing process and to take an active part in it. It is important to be aware that energy healing is only part of a balanced life. It's also important that you take inspired action when appropriate. It is necessary for to accept that it is your responsibility to take the steps necessary to make the changes you're looking for. 


As every person's healing journey is different, it is important to work together so we can decide when they are ready for the subsequent sessions.  I always keep an eye on my clients during the whole process, so please keep me informed with how things are going. Restoring balance and harmony to your mind and body can take time, so don’t be discouraged if you don’t notice dramatic immediate changes. Remember, it's taken a lifetime to put yourself out of balance, so correcting this can take time and needs patience. By having sessions, you are taking a positive step in the right direction. Allow things to naturally unfold without any resistance, and without pre-empting the outcome. 

After any holistic treatment, clients may experience a 'clearing' process. Sessions are powerful and can be like having a major detox so clients may experience cold like symptoms or you may need to go the toilet more frequently. The body is flushing out all the toxins that have been stored in the mind, body and energetic field, and once these are released into the system it can sometimes leave a person feeling tired or drained. I recommend resting and drinking lots of water during this process. Emotions that have been locked in the body for a long time can also be released into your system and can leave a person feeling slightly more emotional than normal. The body is going through a big energy shift and symptoms usually settle down within a few days.


When unpleasant things show up, the momentum behind them has potentially been building up for a long time before the sessions took place. I am facilitating sessions, and am not responsible for any symptoms that may arise as a result of receiving Ancestral Healing. You must agree to take personal responsibility for medical treatment if necessary. No services are intended to diagnose, treat or cure any illness or disease and are not intended or implied to be a substitute for professional medical, psychiatric or psychological advice, care, guidance or treatment.


Always contact me if there are any issues or concerns. Ancestral Healing should never be used instead of medical treatment, it should be used as a compliment and a way to become and remain healthy.
