:: Rise ::


A lot of emphasis is put into the importance of grounding daily (with good reason!). I myself talk about it a lot as it is a vital part of moving through this world with grace and ease, as a being here to raise the vibration of this planet. When you ground, you are anchoring yourself into Mother Earth, sending your roots deep down to facilitate a connection from Source and allowing energy to flow easily through you. Roots allow us to receive nourishment from our Mother and stand tall in our full power, ancient knowing and radiance.

Roots, by their very nature, are unseen. We know they are always there, supporting us, but how often do you think about or remember them day to day? It can be so easy to get swept up by whatever is happening in our lives. This summer we received a lot of new frequencies and downloads, and such intense vibrations can sometimes make us feel like we are rising out of our body! Bringing it back down to Earth is the key. Keeping that holistic view, an eye on the whole picture, gives us perspective, understanding and direction. And that means understanding our lineage and knowing where, what and who we came from. This is the deeper work of grounding.

Our Ancestors are unseen, but they are always there supporting us. There is a reason they are referred to as our Roots. They facilitated the way for us to be here, right now. Have you ever considered that the lineage you incarnated into was by design? That it is part of your soul’s evolution to change and heal any long-standing wounds of your lineage, and by extension humanity? 


If we don’t know where we are from, we can’t know where we belong. A huge part of the work we are here to do in our lifetime is Ancestral. Whenever we heal ourselves, we are also healing our family line. The work that we do in healing ourselves has far-reaching effects, way beyond our awareness and the present day. We have the power and ability to change our DNA and set ourselves and our Ancestors free. Once I embraced my lineage and Ancestors, my healing and development soared, and my practice expanded exponentially.

Many people don't know their extent of their lineage, or aren't able to find much beyond a few generations for various reasons. I got really into genealogy when I was 12 years old, but was only able to find so much. I kept hitting road blocks as the majority of my lineage is Indigenous and there wasn’t much to be found past the 18th century. For example, records of my Puerto Rican ancestry stops in the 1700s, which is when the Spaniards colonized the island and began keeping records. Before that, information was only passed down orally. I did not have the tools, skills or awareness at the time to transcend these 3D barriers.  For people with European lineage, records are more readily available but if you are looking for examples and evidence of Indigenous practices, they might be really hard to find. Beyond that, much of the older generations simply weren't interested in talking about or remembering the past. Getting though the day and putting food on the table was the primary objective. But today, we are in a place historically and energetically where we must connect with our roots and heal our lineage. If we don't know or remember this, how can we know where we are going?

Communicating with your Ancestors, Angels and Guides in meditation and healing work will bridge any gaps in knowledge. Though it is nice to see records and photographs, those are only 3D remnants that aren’t required in Ancestral work. Really all you need to do is ask your Ancestors for help. They want to be known by you. They want to be remembered, even if you did not meet in your or their lifetime. They will come when you call. Ask, and open up to receive them. 

As I became a professional healer, holding circles and conducting 1:1 sessions, more and more people would come up to me afterwards and share how their Ancestors came in during their session. How an Ancestor they have never heard of, or met, would appear to their great surprise. How they could see patterns of beliefs and behaviors affecting their grandparents and parents up into the present day, which gave them greater awareness, understanding, and perspective. It is beyond powerful, and it’s happening all the time now.

If you aren't connected to your Ancestors, or feel called to know them at this moment in time, that's totally okay. Whatever work you do for yourself serves them as well. We are all connected and there is no separation between the timelines.  It took me a few years to understand that any healing work I do affects my family line backwards and forwards. Past, present, and future. Literally anything and everything. It just happened, whether I was aware of it or not. I didn’t have to try or worry because it was already happening.

 

Ancestral healing is the key to everything. It is the key to changing our history and legacy on this planet. Though we were born into a patriarchal system of racism, colonization, oppression, and privilege, and have inherited various traumas through our DNA, we now have the power, ability, and awareness to change it.


2018 has been quite a ride and after this last eclipse season, so much has come into focus. It helps to zoom out and look at things from a higher perspective. If you need extra support this month, I am here to help. Please reach out to schedule a 1:1 session or come to a healing circle. Thank you for being here with me. Though we are having our own individual journeys, we are all going through this together. And it is everything.

Love,
Jordan
One of the projects I've been working on all summer is finally ready! Spirit Guides Magazine approached me a few months ago to write an e-book on Cultural appropriation in the spiritual and healing communities, and I am honored to share this with you now.

In this guide, I share tips and pointers on how to extricate oneself from the the low-vibration of cultural appropriation, and how to move forward in an authentic way in full knowledge and power of ourselves. How genetic trauma, inherited DNA, and cellular memory can prevent people from investigating their lineage, and/or the spiritual traditions and practices of their Ancestors—or even knowing they exist.

Every single culture has indigenous heritage that was destroyed by the wounded patriarchy, organized religions, fear, and ignorance. But we are at a point now where we must do the work. What do we want to pass on to our descendants? How can we connect to Spirit/Source/God/Goddess in an authentic way that is of the highest vibration, and furthers our expansion and ascension?

Breathwork for Ancestral Healing

Sunday, Sept. 16th
3:00pm | MINKA brooklyn

In this special circle, we will focus on the links between ourselves and our lineage, and how they are affecting our daily lives - our coping mechanisms, how we care for and support ourselves, our relationships, money, and security.

We will call in and connect with our Ancestors to assist us in this work. We will use the ancient Pranayama Breath technique to shake up stagnant energy and release it up and out of the body to free ourselves and our ancestors. This is a life-changing practice that will transform energetic patterns that are not in your highest good, or are preventing you from carrying out your soul's mission and life's purpose. 

 
Heart Awakening:
A Cacao Ceremony

Thursday, Sept. 27th
7:00pm | BreadxButta storefront
 

Cacao, known as the 'Food of the Gods' by the Ancients, is a potent energy shifter, teacher and guide. Connected to the heart chakra, it allows us to open up to the divine guidance within, and connect with our Higher Selves and Spirit guides. The natural high felt by consuming this sacred elixir will connect us to the deep love, gratitude and abundance available to us in every moment. 

A cacao ceremony is an opportunity to connect deeply to yourself and the Divine Feminine, and open your heart. This medicine will meet you wherever you are on your path and help you transform and release old stories patterns, traumas, and negativity, and move forward with confidence, love and higher awareness. 

In this sacred ceremony, we will honor Mother Earth and drink medicinal strength raw cacao from Ecuador.

What others are saying...

“After just one consultation with Jordan, I felt an immediate sense of relief, as well as a renewed sense of purpose. I was struggling to address some underlying issues that were interfering with my ability to move forward in my creative process. With utmost grace, she holds a safe space for dreamers to reflect on the obstacles that prevent them from stepping up to the plate so that their highest expression can be made manifest. She also provides practical tools and resources to ground your visions so that they are not lost floating in the ethers. I was most impressed by her response to my questions pertaining to social justice, equality, inclusivity, and being of service to others while creating a healing based business. She is the real deal. Do yourself a favor and experience some of her magic and wisdom. ” - M.P.
