Healing Your Ancestral Lineage: 
Reveal, Release, Transform Family Patterns

A Web-based Course with 
Gretchen Crilly McKay

“The ancestors are benevolent beings who love us.  
You are their legacy and they want the best for their progeny. 
 Their own evolution in the Other World depends upon the 
completion of unfinished business or making amends for unkind 
acts or deeds that they may have committed during their lifetime.” 
~ Baba P.H. Mtshali, Zulu Traditional Healer and Sangoma

The ancestors are an important part of our soul’s evolutionary process. Among them there is usually one, sometimes more, that are chosen as personal guardians. Ancestors who have agreed to work with us may be grandparents or other deceased relatives, including family members from long ago. The speak the language of intuition and symbols through the elements, memories, dreams, and metaphors.

Ancestral spirits, living on in the Other World, clearly remember their time on the earth. Evolution continues for them and they depend upon working with their descendants to correct family karmic issues. The more they see you struggling the more they ache, and the more compassion they feel the more anxious they are to assist in the healing of those still in the world. It is an equal partnership. 

Not all our ancestors have been wise and loving in their choices. When hearts and minds and hopes were broken, their woundings resulted in traumas that have been passed down through our DNA. Connecting with the gifts and talents that you inherited and recognizing the sacrifices your ancestors made provides a healing environment for releasing the past through forgiveness and love.

In this three-module experiential course we will explore family patterns and subconscious limiting beliefs that need to be revealed, released, and transformed - for the past, the present, and the future.
