We inherit from our ancestors gifts so often taken for granted. Each of us contains within this inheritance of soul. We are links between the ages, containing past and present expectations, sacred memories and future promise. – Edward Sellner
When I work with people to discover a deeper understanding of their life, I am always amazed how strong the links are to our past.
Our roots are a symbol of family and tradition and our ancestral past carries a strong imprint within our DNA. This can manifest in our life as an emotional, physical or spiritual imprint, either way, we all have this unique DNA within us, and when we understand where we came from, we can reveal a deeper understanding of who we are and change what needs to be changed.
Before I can look at myself clearly, I must learn what it is, I no longer need to carry. When I hold onto these past imprints, it keeps me from discovering my true self. To be able to see who I am, is to let the person underneath evolve and to experiment into being.
As we understand our past, we may find that what we have always believed about ourselves is not what one truly is.
Often there is darkness when uncovering the past however, it is always in the darkness where I learn to go inward and emerge with a greater vision for the future.
Gazing into the past, I have discovered deep wisdom and each time I do, I have a greater purpose and passion to live in the present.
“It was the kind of moon
that I would want to
send back to my ancestors
and gift to my descendants
so they know that I too,
have been bruised…by beauty.”
