New Life Skills
“Life is a rush into the unknown. You can duck down and hope nothing hits you, or stand up tall as you can, show it your teeth and say “Dish it up baby, and don't be stingy with the jalapenos.”

Healing the Ancestral Lines
"We are the dreams of our Ancestors..." and they are also our nightmares. All that remains unresolved in your ancestral line, the violence, injustice, and suffering, has impact on your life today. It is the job of the ancestors to remember and the job of the living to change and heal. You and your extended family are the only means by which the ancestors can heal and they are using you to heal in this moment.
By healing the ancestral line with intention you can free your Inner Visionary for your own life and reconnect with your sacred dream. From this place of power you can call on all that is good, true, and beautiful in your ancestral line to support you in living your soul's unique purpose.
Part I. Seeing
First you must learn to see the patterns of ancestral energy for what they are. This is very tricky. These patterns are part of what defines "normal" for you. They have been with you since the moment of your conception. They are not you, but they feel like you. You must learn to see them to be able to change them.
Part II. Being
Next we look at who you are "being" in the moment. Where is your energy going? What is it creating? The energy of your ancestors is woven into the fabric of your life in two distinct ways. There is the way in which they stand behind you to support you in manifesting your soul's purpose. There is also the way in which they stand in front of you, blocking you with all that remains unhealed and using your mental, emotional, and physical health to heal it. In Part II we will look at what needs to heal in the ancestral line and how to heal it.
Part III. Becoming
Finally, we ask, "What are you here to become?" You are part of the Universe dreaming itself into awareness. Your "original medicine" comes from this Dreaming and it resonates with the true song of your soul. How are you to use what you have learned from your ancestors, both the light and the dark, to guide you in living out your soul's unique purpose? How do you feed and nurture your connection with the Ancestors who support you on your life's path?
