“When we have passed a certain age, the soul of the child that we were and the souls of the dead from whom we sprang come and shower upon us their riches and their spells, asking to be allowed to contribute to the new emotions which we feel and in which, erasing their former image, we recast them in an original creation.”
~ Marcel Proust, The Captive & The Fugitive
“You are the fairy tale told by your ancestors.”
~Toba Beta, My Ancestor Was an Ancient Astronaut
2015 is almost upon us.
It’s going to be a big year for many. A positive year. A year where everything changes.
Years ago, when I lived in the Kimberley, my Aboriginal Aunties taught me how to call on and connect with my Ancestors. Doing that changed my life in ways I could never have imagined. There is so much love, wisdom, support and guidance for us beyond what we can see here in our own reality.
Our Ancestors are our loved ones who have crossed over, back to the beginning of our family line. Some of these Ancestors you may know. They will have been your father or your grandmother, an aunt or some other family elder from your living memory. Some of these Ancestors will go so much further back than that.
Tomorrow I’m going to give you a guided meditation to help you connect in with the energy of your own Ancestors, so that you may draw on that help and love in the days ahead.
To be ready for that meditation you need just a few simple things:
- a crystal or stone you can hold comfortably in your hands
- a list of any personality characteristics you would like strengthened in you
- a list of any personal values you would like strengthened in you
- a list of skills you would like strengthened in you
- a project that is dear to your heart where you would like to enlist help for its success next year
Your lists don’t need to be exhaustive. Their purpose is simply that you have given these issues proper thought before the meditation begins so that you can make the most of your time in that space.
See you tomorrow!
Lots of love, Nicole xx
PS – Here’s the stone I’m called to use tomorrow. It’s a Shaligram (the traditional name for it) – an ammonite fossil. My dear friend Sally found it in Nepal and brought it home for me. It has the most amazing ancient energy. And it fits so snugly into my hand!
