There are many gifts that come through a Dagara stick divination, but for the majority of my clients, I would say that the most important part is finding a connection to one’s ancestors. The majority of us are of mixed heritages. We barely know the stories of those who came before us, their triumphs, their hardships. What remains even more hidden, are the medicine or craft traditions. These gifts either went underground due to persecution, or were completely shut down so that the ancestors could fit in to new lands and new communities.
This is the season for the Remembering. Samhain time. The Day of the Dead. Why, you may ask, do we need to honor the ancestors? To live this life in balance in this world, we must be in gratitude. We would not be here if it were not for our parents, grandparents and the greats before them. Many people are challenged with this concept of gratitude when there is a history of abuse or negative patterns in the lineage. Rightly so. It is a difficult journey to find gratitude towards an oppressive character. But much healing can come from the clearing work involved in discovering gratitude. If we do the work of healing a lineage, we can clear it forwards for our children, laterally for our siblings and cousins, and even backwards for the ancestors themselves. We hold the energetics in our bodies of the traumas that affected our ancestors or were afflicted by our ancestors. The memory persists until it is acknowledged and transmuted. So how do we transmute ancestral trauma? With offerings.
Hey Spirit Worker, Your Village has a Membrane that Needs Care and the book to help you learn how to do that is now available in ebook format!
If the living world is made up of lifesystems contained within nested and layered membranes, the importance of the spirit worker attending to the village membrane cannot be underestimated.
What do I mean by spirit worker, village and membrane?
By spirit worker, I mean any human who is called to work on the energetic and spiritual level, with the unseen realms and mostly unseen guides for the purpose of healing, spreading light or affecting change.
Very simply the membrane is the bioenergetic container, boundary, barrier, skin, that protects what is inside from that which is outside. The membrane is permeable, with an intelligence and discernment to decide what gets in and what stays out. The membrane acts as a filter, shield and gatekeeper for what is within the membrane. All lifesystems have membranes from the simple cell to the multicellular, to the complex lifesystems we humans are embedded within. Without a healthy membrane the interior cannot thrive.
