My own personal spiritual journey has involved extensive work with past lives. Some of this work has been done through resonance repatterning, which I offer to the public, but some has been through my connection to what I call my "culminating self". I like this term better than higher self, because it doesn't send connotations of hierarchy. My culminating self is the part of me that exists outside of space, time, dimensional reality and understands both my soul's past and future (as well as the parts of me that exist on different timelines, dimensions... taking a multiversal perspective of who I am).
More recently I have been working with my culminating self to initiate past life healing. The goal of this is to open a path for the stream of wisdom from my culminating self to come through more clearly into my current incarnation. This doesn't mean I get full access to that wisdom (did somebody say "short circuit?"), but it helps tend the karmic entanglements that might be distorting that wisdom.
This work has been more intense for me than the ancestral lineage healing work. For me my "soul stream" is quite strong and present and so work that affects the soul stream is felt in a larger way. For some people their ancestral streams are providing stronger influence. I find different people need different approaches, but the ideal is for the soul stream and ancestral streams to be clarified and harmonized. For me working on the ancestral stream helped me have a strong base for the soul work. For others they may need to clarify their core of energy (soul stream) before venturing into the ancestral fields.
And for others they may need to do other integration work first. This is why I also offer my "animist integration" work where the focus is coming into coherence within your own being and with the world around you.
Still others may need some good old fashioned curse unraveling or depossession work before any further personal evolution can take place.
Whatever your path, I would love to partner with your journey of unfolding.
