Hey guys, I’m just here looking out the kitchen window and enjoying the fact that all the snow is gone from the ground here in our little town. Even though it is still super cold, the illusion that winter has ended is enough to cheer me up. Winter is a time that really gets some of us down and struggling. I am one of those people. I have been trying to find out why I am how I am lately.
Finding out where we came from can sometimes be hard for people because we don’t know vital members of the family that could be the missing puzzle piece that help to tell our story to us. I never got to meet my mother’s mom or my father’s dad. This has always made me wonder. I really would have loved to meet my grandma, I have this strange missing for her even though I never got to meet her. The same thing with my papa on my father’s side.
I really have tried tapping into this all by practicing mediumship. I have sat through seances and talked to readers but those two important relatives never really pop up. My grandpa whom I was very close with is still very close to me. He just passed a few years ago. It is a crazy thought trying to tap into relatives that never met you and trying to introduce yourself to them. I thought should I just meditate and say Hi, I’m your grandson and I never met you but I miss you tons and want to know your side of the story when it comes to family trees and stories and things such as this.
Last year at the Dia de los Muertos celebration that we had at the store was the beginning of me figuring out how to get this rolling. Family alters are a great start to make this all come into fruition for you. You can get pictures of the family members and put them on a table in the house. If there are things that you have from the person put them on the table. If you have stones that you use that help with family trees or making dreams more real this may also help you with tapping into the family roots. The family tree is the key to knowing for so many of us. If there is a book that your family makes or another family member living that knows information about the person you are trying to get in touch with, this may help you as well.
I was given a gift for Valentines day this year of a family tree coin. It is a beautiful coin with two sides. One of the sides is for the fathers side and the other is for the mothers side. I carry the coin in my pocket and also sit it on the nightstand at night while I sleep to help get the family members I wan’t to get in touch with. It helps to have a notebook on hand, much like when trying to remember any other type of dreaming. Citrine and jasper are both great stones if the feelings you have are those of grief. The jasper will help you to put joy into the situation and the citrine will help if there is a negative feeling towards it or a break in the auric field due to the situation. Other pieces that work great for setting up the family alter are things like statuary of a family shield etc..
Doing things like a past life meditation will also help you to tap into the past and see how you started and where you came from. I am not sure if this kind of thing is as important to others as it is to me. However, if it is leave comments below and we can talk back and forth about it. We have nothing without memories and family. Have a great week everybody and thank you for reading the blog. -Ian
