Exploring Emotional Blockages Using EFT and Ancestral Energetics
Does it seem like you’ve been working on the same issue and not moving forward? Repeating patterns like sadness, anxiety, anger, or other emotions/behavior may be influenced by our ancestors.
The study of epigenetics has an explanation -- It’s in your genes. In the book ‘It Didn’t Start With You’ the author Mark Wolynn cites research and examples of this throughout his book. In the book ‘Family Energetics’ by Deborah H. Donndelinger, Deb presents “a loving and effective approach for unraveling family entanglements that block our path today” by using EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) or tapping to discover these hidden ancestral patterns (Donndelinger, 2012). Note: Family Energetics is also referred to as Ancestral Energetics.
Case Study A client had difficulty charging her customers for her services, since one of her beliefs was that people don’t have the money. Using the FE (Family/Ancestral Energetics) process (Donndelinger, 2012), she realized that her ancestors had worked very hard to succeed and that many people in prior generations didn’t have a lot of extra money. The belief that there’s not extra money was passed down through her ancestral line. We worked with that belief using EFT and she reported feeling much lighter. She is now willing to attach a fee to her services.
Another client felt judged by her family for her chosen profession. We used the Family/Ancestral Energetics process (Donndelinger, 2012) to discover her family message; make the family proud, support the family, be prosperous in order to continue the family legacy. At the end of our work together, she was able to “feel comfortable shining in her own creativity and not live in what she perceived of as their judgement.”
Sometimes we aren’t aware of our blockages. We do know that we have blockages that baffle us. When released, we experience greater self-expression and creativity.
