Empaths, family dysfunction, and healing the karmic line.

                        
One of the factors about being an empath, that most do not realise, is just how connected we are to our ancestral, and family lines.

There was an old African saying that my parents would always repeat to me, though I never took it seriously until I began my own journey into spirituality. It went a little something like this, ‘You are your ancestors. You come back as them, over, and over again’.

I did not understand what this meant at the time. Probably because I didn’t try to, probably because I wasn’t ready to. How could we be our ancestors? Wouldn’t we remember if we were?

Well, what exactly is memory? Memory that you perceive to be images received in your mind? Well, how about karmic memory?

Karmic memory, may not be so easy to identify as something that has occurred for you before, but you will see it manifest, time and time again, in your relationships with others, and in the things that ‘trigger’ you.

Much like [Carl Jung’s] theory, about the collective consciousness, this African belief pertains to the idea that, whatever is not lived through, or completed within our ancestors, will once again manifest through us, and the rest of our generational lines, until it meets resolution.


For empaths embodying the divine feminine, templates such as abandonment, and mistreatment are cemented, from centuries of being left by their men for wars, and raped, and sodomised, as they saw the rise of patriarchy, and the destruction of the divine feminine. This will usually be passed onto the female empath, through her mother, possibly as a direct experience, or, as a distant flicker. It could manifest as anxiety, depression, hypersensitivity to men, (through love, or fear), and even a desire to re-integrate the divine feminine, in hopes to reconcile what was once lost. As this is passed on directly from mother, to daughter, (from the womb initially), there is likely to be karmic issues surrounding the relationship between the two.

 
For empaths embodying the energies of the divine masculine, the trauma in the family will be directly related towards issues of masculinity, where men’s worth was once tied around their ability to show a significant amount of aggression, defense and outward action. Of course, the divine masculine who identifies as an empath, will struggle greatly with this, as they are predisposed to feminine energies (because of their hyper sensitivity to energy). They are likely to have fathers who are emotionally unattached, unavailable, or not involved in/with their lives.. This could manifest as sociopathy, for the ones who reject to allow their empathy to guide them, or, alternatively, this may manifest as nervousness, and timidity, as this individual carries the stigma of feeling de-masculinised. This is his internal struggle to re-integrate the divine feminine also.

Both the masculine, and feminine templates are stored within the empath for ultimate release. Empaths experience numerous deaths, and rebirths upon their shamanic journeys, and all of these allow them to successfully purge energies stored within their karmic, and generational lines. They will also continuously run into relationships that challenge and trigger their karmic ancestry.

From a very early age, it was clear to see that my path was one paved with difference. Inspiration, intuition, and imagination gripped me long before I could find my feet. I walk the life path of 7, so I am irreversibly bound to the realm of mysticism, spiritualism, and esotericism. I do not belong to this world, for I am a 'tween', always in between worlds. I am the commander of serpents, belonging to the glorious, and forbidden 13th zodiac of ophiuchus. Hidden in secrecy, to one day return as the divine feminine awakens. Love, is my speciality, and has governed my existence. I now use a combination of intuition, natural healing ability, astrology, psychology, sociology, and numerology to bring clarity, healing, and understanding to all. With the energy of ophiuchus running through me, I could never turn away from the path of healing, nor teaching. Not only does ophiuchus represent healing, but also the crevices of the dark shadows that we must crawl through to find our path to healing, in other words, the shamanic process of death, and re-birth, which has pretty much been the summation of my existence thus far. Long gone are my days of depression, I have re-claimed my divinity, and I desire nothing more than to help you to also claim yours. Not only the seeker, I am also the lover. Part of the many trials that I have endured upon this empathic journey, are that of heart break, and abandonment consciousness. For this reason, I have become an advocate for healthy loving relationships, and the harmony between the two sexes. This has taken me on a deep quest, to uncover ancient old secrets, and deeply entrenched beliefs, about man, about woman, and what this reads about where we are to. My eternal life drive and motto revolves around this simple theory, 'Where there is an outcome, there has existed a cause'. My particular areas of interest and expertise lie with sociology, psychology, spiritualism, philosophy, and literary, and creative writing. As I have a deeply intense desire to both serve, and aid humanity, I have naturally been drawn toward topics that have provided me with a more in depth account of societal behaviour, and as it stands, human kind. My roots are as deeply rooted as they can be, stemming from Ghanaian parents, who were raised, and both skilled in the art, and knowledge of superstition, and divination wisdom, it is no surprise that the blood flowing through my veins compels me to do such work, so relentlessly. Unlike other bloggers, this work featured here is not a mere hobby, it is more than just my livelihood, it is the calling of which i cannot ignore. Another prominent focus of mine, is mental illness. Not comfortable, nor fully sold with the western idealisms of the implications of such, i seek research, personal experience, and observation to prove, that many mental illnesses hold spiritual connotation, particularly as the mind is an avid translator of spiritual energies. Follow me on this journey as i discover myself, retrace my roots, fall deeply in love with my heritage, and finally accept my awkward, unorthodox societal position.
