Ritual Practice

As you breathe, release all tension from your body. As you relax with each exhalation, close your eyes, and place your focus and awareness inwards.

Imagine yourself standing in a circle and visualize your family tree in another circle in front of you. Picture an actual tree, with your immediate family sprouting from the branches at the very top. Your parents, brothers, and sisters.

Take note of the positive qualities that your family members share, focusing on the things that you admire within them.

Now, go one level deeper and imagine your grandparents or other elders on the branches beneath your immediate family. Once again, take note of their positive qualities.

Keep going further back: think of your grandparents and great-grandparents deeper within the tree. Each time you picture someone, imagine the attributes that you might admire, and note that just as your ancestors are in your family tree, so are their strengths.

Continue and keep going further back until you reach the root of the tree, to family members you no longer recognize. Go back hundreds of years, if you can.

Draw upon the positive qualities of the family members you know to imagine an ancestor whose strengths ensured the survival of their ancestors for generations to come.

Visualize the kind of things they might do in their daily life, how they feel, the energy
and emotions they have. Picture their strengths and courage that have been passed
on into your DNA through generations. Imagine their energy radiating in front of you, as the family tree fades away.

Enhance this feeling by taking a deep breath, pulling in the energy of your ancestors in front of you and absorbing their attributes. Imagine the intensity increasing in front of you, and then take a step forward to connect with the energy of your ancestors.

Feel their energy flowing up from the ground and through your body, like roots leading
up from the earth into a tree. Take a moment to fully absorb the courage that has been passed on to you through generations.
