Your ancestors are a huge part of who, what, where and why you are the way you are today. It is comforting to think of the ancestors as something quite far away, unreachable but still there in the background. The reality is it all starts with your parents, who are connected to their parents, who are connected to their parents and so on until it all gets a bit blurry. Do you know, really know your parents? Do you know you Grandparents? What happened to them, what challenged them, what made them who they are or were? What happened in the family? Where are your roots? Patterns, energy, events and burdens from the past are carried down and are repeated through generations leaving an emotional, physical and spiritual imprint on the individual as they follow the fates of those that have gone before.In The Science of Family, Nikki Mackay explores these patterns, their effects and how to work with them using techniques from the world of energy healing, tarot archetypes and family constellations.
