What is ancestral wisdom?

Have you ever had a gut feeling and avoided it because you felt afraid to honor it?

Do you ever find it challenging to discern your gut feelings from your logical mind?

Have you ever felt triggered by something and couldn’t figure out why because the trigger didn’t relate to your personal past?

Do you feel connected to your lineage in an intangible way and want to cultivate deeper relationships with your ancestors?

Have you ever felt like you’ve already done the healing work and can’t really put your finger on why particular physical/emotional sensations and beliefs still exist?

All of these are signs that your ancestral wisdom is speaking to you...

Your ancestral wisdom has been with you from the moment you were conceived. It is part of your inherent foundation, informing your basic needs, and navigating with you through the world. Our inherited wisdom is often suppressed, repressed, inhibited, and ignored, especially within our Western world which places little to no value on such wisdom. It may seem like our mind, body and ancestral souls speak different languages, impossible to translate. But they can understand each other, grow and strengthen from each other's stories and experiences if they tune in and listen. And when your foundation is strong with ancestral soul, body, and mind working together, it is much easier to sustain, thrive, move, heal, create, and transform.

IGNITE YOUR BODY'S YEARNING TO BE HEARD, FELT & RECEIVED.

YOU ALREADY HAVE ALL THE ANSWERS.

ARE YOU WILLING TO TUNE IN?

I believe your body holds ancient wisdom from your ancestors that is passed down through generations.

I believe your body is always speaking to you in ways you have yet to understand.

I believe your body yearns for your nurturance and love and craves to remain connected to your soul essence.

I believe you hold all the answers. 

I believe you are a healer, an intuitive, a guiding vessel, an activist for change, and ready to listen to the wisdom in your skin.

I believe when you listen to the wisdom in your body, you heal inherited trauma, transform perceptions around your own trauma, and become more attuned to what is yours and what is not.

Are you ready to heal?

The greatest tool you have is your ability to listen to your body's ancient wisdom. All the sacred wisdom you hold is because every single one of your ancestors fought for their survival so that YOU - their greatest legacy - could be sitting in front of your technology reading these very words. Without everything that they endured to keep their lineage alive, you would not exist. AND you are not responsible for holding the pain that they endured. Honor it by BEING FREE and living out the legacy that they intended for you.  

You are a healer.

You are a transformational BE-ing.

You are here to change the story of your lineage.

You are able to give life to the empowered being that's remained oppressed inside your body your entire life. 

IT IS UP TO YOU TO DO THE HEALING WORK SO WE can CO-CREATE A THRIVING WORLD FOR OUR CHILDREN AND BEYOND.

You have the greatest access to untapped potential, to untapped ancient wisdom, and healing trauma that’s not in your awareness will give you this access. Because when you heal, you heal the traumas of your ancestors, the ones that you've experienced, AND you create a new legacy for your lineage that honors both your ancestors and yourself.
