Honor your ancestors...?
Mulan (Disney Studios)
In my life, I have behaved in ways and made career choices that my ancestors would not have approved. And I am so grateful that I have had the possibility and courage to do so.
Today one of the topics that came up in meditation was this concept of being trapped in an imprisoning cycle of having to honor your ancestors / parents / family name, according to what they have decided was right or wrong, and of being shamed and sometimes banished if one doesn’t.
I feel as though Asian cultures are an embodiment of that concept, even though you do find it in all human cultures…my Jewish culture is certainly not exempt.
This is a very low frequency concept, a heaviness that is ready to be seen and transmuted.
