I mentioned in my previous blog that I’m hosting the Ancestral Healing Summit for The Shift Network, which airs online (free) from April 8-12, and I’d like to talk today about Heather Dane, who offered a fascinating look into the concept of Generational Pattern Shifters.
Health Coach and 21st century medicine woman Heather Dane combines ancient wisdom from her Native American lineage (Haudenosaunee, Oneida Nation Member) with holistic health and nutrition training to offer the most cutting edge prescriptive remedies for your health. She has co-authored two books with Louise Hay: Loving Yourself to Great Health and The Bone Broth Secret: A Culinary Adventure in Health, Beauty and Longevity. She also hosts her own show on Hay House Radio.
She specializes in supporting people to resolve addictions, weight challenges, stress, chronic fatigue, depression, autoimmune illness, energetic sensitivity and much more, while enhancing their capacity for self-love and self-care.
Heather and I met a couple years ago when I was first beginning to get an inkling that there even was such a thing as ancestral healing. I had been fairly obsessed with genealogy as a hobby, and I was starting to recognize that there’s more to it than just finding out the names of ancestors … there were deeply meaningful patterns in the chaos. I didn’t realize anyone else was doing this kind of work or that it even had a name, until I heard Heather talking about Generational Pattern Shifters.
She says that she’s noticed, over the past several years, that many of her clients have been called to break the chain of unhealthy patterns that have been passed on through the generations. These people fit a certain set of descriptors, all of which I relate to. Do you?
As Heather began studying epigenetics and how people can heal at the DNA level, she began noticing these patterns. She says that the call to be a Generational Pattern Shifter may come unexpectedly, through a breakdown in the family, a health diagnosis, or a trauma. What many people don’t realize is that these challenging experiences are an invitation to heal not just yourself, but all generations before you and after you.
The journey is often not mainstream, it’s not straightforward, and it often requires healing many layers. The end result is that as you heal yourself, this healing often extends to all generations before you and after you.
My interview with Heather was chock full of fascinating information, and it’s one of the key conversations in the Summit. I hope you’ll do yourself a favor and drop in to listen. Check it out here.
By the way, here’s you some generational dogs:
Lisa Bonnice is an award-winning, best-selling author. Her current passion-project is a series of metaphysical comedy novels. The first is entitled The Poppet Master (previously published as Be Careful What You Witch For!, now revamped and with a new ending). The Poppet Master is a modern-day fairy tale about Lola Garnett, a bored housewife and office drone who wakes up with unexpected psychic abilities, and no instruction manual, and Twink, the reluctant, sarcastic faery assigned to assist and educate her. The Poppet Master will be available in summer 2019. Its sequel is in the works.
Lisa is also writing The Maxwell Curse, a fictionalized version of a story she found in her own ancestral lineage about a witch trial, a generational curse, and massive mine explosion, all of which left ripples of destruction in their wake, devastating one family’s tree.
