Your Sacred Vessel


your body a sacred vessel

Your body was once considered a sacred vessel carrying your spirit for an exciting adventure! We have forgotten this truth due to all the programming and expectations on what it means to be human.

We have been operating under patriarchy, an overinflated masculine energy, for 5200 years. This patriarchal era brought in oppressing viewpoints keeping both men and women from their true selves. This difficult era created material success and a certain type of physical appearance as most important in creating value and worthiness.

We’ve all bought into these outdated viewpoints. Some people more than others. It’s important to let go of oppressive beliefs, issues, traumas, and expectations that you’ve acquired from your ancestry, parents, siblings, friends, significant others and spouses, authority figures, and the collective. You also bring in outdated issues and traumas from other lifetimes but that’s for another article. It’s important to let the past go on a mental, emotional, and physical level. This will allow your body to remember its Divine nature!

How do you do this? It is always best to work with someone experienced in helping others let go of the past, but there are things you can do on your own.

Many times, I’ll invite in my ancestors to help me transform the past. You can imagine your ancestors surrounding you. They are grateful you’re helping the lineage clear away what wasn’t resolved when they were alive. This still affects those alive today since we inherit their problems and their gifts.

Let your brain become free of thoughts by focusing on your breath or 3rd eye. This allows you to hear your ancestors’ messages. What can they tell you about what they are carrying in beliefs, traumas, and memories that you, your parents and other relatives are also carrying?

As your ancestors speak to you, ask that your body lets go of this ancestral baggage. Ask your Higher Self to direct, which is your spirit that never dies, and optimal spirit guides to assist. They can help your body let these issues and problems go on a mental, emotional, physical, DNA, down to the smallest particle of energy level.

Pay attention to your body, as you ask ancestral issues to release. This helps your body let go more easily.

If you feel tension in your head, stay present to it and ask that it releases the beliefs, traumas and pain. Stay with your head, or whatever part of your body stands out, so you can help with the release process. Stay with whatever your body is experiencing until it feels lighter.

If it doesn’t want to release, there may be resistance due to strong programming your body is holding onto. If this is the case, stay with the resistance even if it means doing so for a number of days. It can also mean you need to understand more about what you’re letting go of. If this is the case, put the intention that you understand what you’re holding onto so that your body can let it go.

You can also ask to clear up anything your body is holding onto starting with in-utero. Whatever your mother was going through at this time was passed onto you. You felt her emotions and problems since you were a part of her at that time. Again, ask your Higher Self to direct and optimal spirit guides to help your body let these issues and problems go on a mental, emotional, physical, DNA, down to the smallest particle of energy level.

Whatever you experienced from birth to current age can be transformed as well. You can picture yourself during different ages to see how your body feels as you remember each age. This can show you where your body is holding onto the past. You can talk to your younger self to see how she/he is doing. Allow the knowings, words, images to come in to help understand what is going on with her/him. If you have a hard time doing this, you can still let go of the past by being with your body as described above.

Many of your ancestral and personal issues, traumas, emotions and memories, are common for many people which indicates you are also clearing a collective issue. By working on your ancestry and your current lifetime, you help clear this for the collective since we are all interconnected.

You can be a part of needed change on earth by transforming yourself. Let’s join hands and do this work together! We are the ones we’ve been waiting for!
