Appealing to your ancestors
Great post! I think it’s more important to work with your ancestors if you’re estranged from them, rather than less. It may give you the opportunity to heal generations of wounding and give you a sense of place. I have done some of this work with my own ancestors; my father was raised by his uncle and aunt, it was tense and to say he was “estranged” would be an understatement. My mother came from an alcoholic family. And the ancestor work I’ve done has been incredibly healing, because negative patterns can remain for generations. If nothing else, it can bring you to a place of forgiveness and acceptance.
