Many people find themselves feeling stuck, unable to reach their goals. The same problems keep showing up in jobs and relationships no matter how much they try to make changes and overcome obstacles. What if the patterns that repeat in your life and relationships didn't originate with you? The source of your challenges could be rooted in your family energy field--and the problematic patterns that arise in your life could be ancestral trauma calling out to be healed.
Presenting a guide to releasing the family patterns that hold you back, Anuradha Dayal-Gulati, an energy practitioner specializing in ancestral and emotional healing, explores the energetic principles that govern your family lineage and the many ways your ancestral field can support you as well as how it can hold you captive. She explains how the experiences and wounds of your parents or grandparents as well as more distant ancestors can affect you and how, sometimes, themes reappear in a family for several generations in a row--patterns of financial distress, sibling rivalry, divorce, or conversely long happy marriages, good health, and good humor.
The author provides exercises and tools--such as journal practices, visualizations, meditations, and mind mapping--that can help you recognize and release negative family patterns, explaining how you don't have to know anything about your ancestors to bring about healing. She shares her own healing journey and her experience with family constellation therapy and explores in depth the use of flower essences to transform emotions and release generational trauma. She discusses the importance of honoring your ancestors, sharing suggestions about altar creation, prayers, and the Vedic ritual of Tarpanam.
Teaching you how to recognize the patterns that manifest in your daily experiences, this guide shows how, by healing your ancestral roots, you can lift the unconscious, invisible barriers that keep you from creating the life you want.
