RECLAIM YOUR ROOTS (28/06/2017)
The only time most of us think about our ancestors is when we see an advert by Ancestry.com and perhaps decide to do an online research, hopefully to discover a former king or warrior in our distant genealogy
For some of us, the idea that we might come from somewhere else that isn’t from our mothers’ wombs only occurs to us when we attend a funeral or have a close shave with death, ours or that of someone close.
Know this truth today – You are the end-product of a long and eternal host of bloodlines, men and women of different temperaments, who share one thing in common – You! You cannot wash them off, delete them from your computer, discard them with a blood transfusion or plastic surgery. Every particle in your body, mind and soul is tied to thousands and even millions of ancestors, linking you eternally to them.
Our ancestors are ours by right, by birth. It does not matter whether you are adopted and have no idea who your real parents are or whether your known parents were vile to you. It does not matter whether you know how far back you can trace your genealogy or if you think your ancestors are murderers and robbers or if they were kings or slaves. Regardless of your colour, religion, sexuality, race or nationality, every living human being is the proof of their ancestors’ existence.
Learn today to see your ancestors as your property, your blood-inheritance. Know that they are IN you and that they will always HEAR you when you call out to them. Your pain is their pain, your joy, their joy. They are your root, your anchor that shields you from the storms of life, your validation in the universe. When you reconnect to your ancestors, you will never be alone again.
Join me on this exciting journey as we begin our quest to seek out those glorious men and women to whom we owe our very existence and whose existence we perpetuate. I write about them in my African Horror ghost stories where I demonstrate their awesome powers and influence in our daily lives. Today, you too can harness the powers of your recent or ancient ancestors to bring a greater change to your life.
