Bloodlines are important to some people and I find genealogical work very interesting, exciting, and sometimes frustrating. Most of the work done on my family tree was accomplished by Grands who had the time, money, and inclination to get into a car and drive to the courthouse or collect data from family bibles protected by various relatives. Ancestry.com makes the search much easier though one still needs to be careful to not create family connections that aren’t really there; be sure you are looking into the same person each time.
Anyway, this article is not about genealogy but about generational challenges or troubles that follow a bloodline. Some would argue that these challenges, depression, anger, poverty, are the ‘sins of the father’ visited down into the 3rd and 4th generations (Exodus 20:5). For example, a parent with a gambling problem (sin) can produce a ‘curse’ of poverty and debt that is passed down to the children, who can then pass it down to their children, etc. Learned behavior or a curse? Tomato, tomahto.
I am currently enrolled in a mediumship class on clearing generational problems that follow a bloodline. While preparing for this class, I connected with a great aunt on my Dad’s side, Aunt Ruth; she stepped forward to help me address issues in my bloodline and act as an overall guide.
It appears, by this first throw, we will address issues coming down from my maternal line (of which Aunt Ruth is not a part). Since starting this class, I have altered my morning schedule to arise an hour before the rest of the family so as to meditate, pray, and chat with Aunt Ruth over the details of the class. Prior to this alteration, it was difficult to fall asleep at night for all the ‘hey, I need to talk to you’ going on; now that I am up early to listen to them, the nighttime spectral visits have stopped. They have my attention.
