Inherited Shame


We are all interconnected via a complex, intricate geometric grid system that we can call the Divine Matrix. All souls, all planets and stars, and all living consciousness in all timelines, dimensions, and universes are connected via the Divine Matrix.

As an interconnected Divine Consciousness, we all agreed to see what it would be like to have many experiences, from hate to love, in many dimensions and realities. Similar to actors in a play, we agreed to take on different roles with each other to see what it would be like to be in different bodies, have different life experiences, and live in different eras. We tend to come back with the same troupe of actors that are in our soul group. We may enlist other troupes of actors that are in other soul groups as well. These souls help with our life play. Sometimes we play the hero and sometimes we play the difficult lesson giver and everything in between.

Each lifetime has its own challenges and complexities that we are meant to experience, learn from, and then let go of. However, our bodies struggle with letting go of the past, which makes us believe that we are these difficult experiences. We particularly hold onto shame, guilt, unforgiveness, and other issues even after making amends or learning from our life experiences. We then carry them, on a soul level, to other lifetimes hoping to work them through.

Shame is a tricky one to let go of. It’s something deeply embedded in our mind, emotions, and body, telling us we’re bad and unlovable due to real or imagined mistakes that we’ve inherited from other lifetimes and the ancestry. It’s then reinforced during childhood so we can work it through as an adult. Shame is etched into the soul as something to work through since resolving it is the key to inner freedom and love, allowing us to break our karmic and ancestral cycles and move into ascension.

You’ve had many lifetimes with various themes where shame went unresolved. Before you were born, you met with a council of loving spirit guides who helped you select the lifetimes that fit these themes. You picked an ancestry that fit these themes; the collective era that fit these themes and the actors and actresses to play the roles to resolve these themes. You then chose the gifts and talents to help you resolve these themes of shame and other issues. These are now the influences for your current life much like an astrological chart that stays in your energy field guiding you toward resolution. You now have the framework for your life journey.

Your soul group is with you, with their various preselected roles, to help you work through shame and your issues in this lifetime. You do the same for them. Your connection to them is so deep and profound that you feel it in the form of strong love and also deep hurt. These souls make the most impact since shame and other deep issues need an actor that has the strength to help you make the change.

We are now in a time in history where we can successfully resolve shame and the other themes and issues we’ve come to clear up since we’re in the doorway of ascension. Ascension is about moving beyond the current human vibration, into a higher vibration, where unity consciousness is something understood and strived for on a regular basis.

resolve inherited shameA big step in transforming ourselves, is to accept that we all have shame and other issues to clear up. Admitting there’s something to work on is nothing to feel bad about since it’s part of the human condition. It’s also important to work on any coping mechanisms you may have such as denial, dissociation, addictions, projecting issues onto others, etc. It’s additionally important to let go of painful memories, traumas, patterns, beliefs, and behaviors that keep you stuck in an unhappy life.

How do you do this? Each day, set the intention to heal your shame, issues, patterns, beliefs, memories, emotions, behaviors, and coping mechanisms. Ask that your Higher Self, your spirit that never dies, directs this process with your spirit guides assisting you. You can meditate about your intention and use it as a walking meditation as you live your life. You may receive an insight that causes you to think differently which then makes you feel better and act differently. You may be led to optimal practitioners, books, energetic healing audios, sound healing, yoga, friends, etc.

The main thing is to have a daily practice of creating positive change in your life and to find tools and practices that work for you. Become the change you want in the world. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for!
