Family Karma — How To Release Energetic Ties From Your Ancestors

This article is on family karma, energetic ties and your family being your biggest trigger and teacher.

What is family karma?

Family karma is the karma of your ancestral bloodline, from your parents down to you. Say your father was the most spiritually developed within his family and he had five siblings, he would be the carrier of ‘energetic blockages’ in the karmic family line. He is carrying this burden from when he was born and will continue to do so his whole life, unless he releases it. It is a passing down of energy either through physical and verbal means, or completely energetic and subconscious.

It can affect the way in which you interact with your family on an unconscious level.

If you consider yourself sensitive and are born out of two spiritually burdened parents, it can seem like you’re carrying twice the load. Many of us don’t naturally get along with our parents, and sometimes this has to do with energetic ties to past experiences. Everything is fundamentally energy, so our consciousness exists beyond physicality and our understanding of linear time.

We have experienced life before this incarnation. Many of the people in your family are consciousness you have known before this life, and have chosen to come to Earth together. Depending on the path of your past, you may have chosen to take on a more intense life to balance out your karma.

We are Source consciousness projecting itself onto the 3D to better understand itself. From this perspective, there is no good or bad; there just is.  So, many have chosen to experience a life as a killer, and the killed to gain more insight from both perspectives and better understand the nature of reality.

You and your mother may have had karmic building experiences in the past, anything from hurting another to refusing to learn a lesson. Everything needs to balance, so if you caused a lot of destruction in your past life, you may be at the other end of it during this life. 

Family patterns get passed on from all the way back from ancestors, to great grandparents, to grandparents to parents, to you.  For example, your grandma’s theme was being too mild. She always took care of other people and let herself be used by everyone. Grandpa’s theme could be something alcoholism and smoking.

Your mother’s theme then translates to a self sacrificial energy. This can look a unfocused attention, lack of love for oneself or her children. These traditions get passed down in the exact same way oppression, false truth and hierarchy do. It perpetuates the system and keeps the mass consciousness a a lower, dense level.

You, as a child of your parents, have the DNA karma of what has been passed down to you. It could be incredibly mild or extremely intense. It is very specific to each of us.


Traits of you being the carrier of family karma:

  • You are the most spiritually developed person and the most conscious one amongst your parents and siblings.
  • You’ve always felt different from your family; you’ve felt a grave distance to who they are and how they behave.
  • Sometimes you inexplicably fall ill and have the feeling you are carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders.
  • You have been entangled in bizarre family matters more than once.
  •  You recognize family patterns in your parents and ancestors, and you actually understand it enough to change it.

So how do you cut all the energetic cords?

People may not resonate with the part of you that is “different” and at odds with their outlook on life. Releasing the ties to the parental energy means first and foremost to release the energy from your own mind and emotions. It is about looking within and finding out to what extent you live by your parents’ set of illusions, by their do’s and don’ts which were based on fear and judgment.

Once you are clear about this and you are able to let that go, you will be free to forgive them and really “leave the parental house.” It is only after you sever the cords on the inner level and take responsibility for your own life that you can really let your parents be.

You will have clearly said “no” to their fears and illusions, but at the same time you will see that your parents are not identical with their fears and illusions. They also are cosmic travelers simply trying to fulfill their soul mission.

Once you feel this, you can feel their innocence and you can forgive. They did their best, to love you, in a way that they could. If you can feel in your heart that they did their best, even when best seems lackluster – they did what they knew how to do.

In a sense you have been the victim of your parents – your parents might have represented ego based consciousness in your childhood. You have temporarily and partly lived according to their illusions. In a way you had no choice, as their child. However to transcend your sense of being the victim here is one of the most powerful breakthroughs you can have in your life.

How can you transform family patterns?

It takes deep introspection and sometimes meditation to get to the core of any reoccurring problems in your life.

They are the result of behavioral patterns that, once fully understood, you can start to change.

It takes time and it all starts with the choice: ‘ I want to be my own master, my own energy my own soul, my own karma-carrier. I am My own carrier.” 

You are filled with power! One of the first steps is simply believing that you are…

  1. I will not even bother to point out and refute all the new-age hogwash in this article, owing to the fact that it’s not worth my time or energy.

    Here is my question, however: How in heaven’s name is it in any way rational for a human being to be burdened with the consequences of someone else’s actions and decisions? Explain me how this makes any sense to you and how this can possibly be fair, knowing that each individual is responsible for their own actions – solely their own, solely their own!

    Do not try to talk around my question, and address the issue I am presenting. Thanks in advance.

  2. The article is not stating that you are responsible for the consequences of others actions in this lifetime. The article is stating that each soul is trying to have particular experiences that help them explore the full spectrum of existence in the universe. Any experiences that are not balanced in the same lifetime (for example, you steal a car, go on a joy ride and trash the car when you are young. The balancing of this comes when you have your own car stolen by another and trashed in the same manner many years later so you can learn what it feels like when you did it to someone else) will be carried in your energy field and taken with you into your next life. If you continue to steal and trash others belongings over several lifetimes, you will gradually alter your DNA by your behavior, and this will be passed on to your progeny. Your progeny can begin to clear this pattern of behavior by making a conscious effort to be respectful of others and their belongings. If the progeny is aware of this pattern of their ancestors, they can do a general apology to all affected in other lifetimes by the behavior of their parent/grandparent,etc. This does not balance the behavior of the soul who is at the heart of the DNA changes, but it will allow the progeny to change their own DNA back. The progeny who also engage in respectful behavior can do a lot to reverse the undesirable DNA traits by their consistent respectful behaviors. The soul with the repetitive behavior problem will still need to either spend much time experiencing being the recipient of disrespectful behavior or make an intense effort to be very respectful over a long lifetime.

    This seems quite complicated and takes a while to get your head around it. It also requires an understanding that we are all energetic beings who have manifested a physical body to explore the 3rd dimension in. This seems pretty wacko until you begin to read about quantum physics and their recent findings. This is all solid science.

    If you completely reject all this, then it just means that you are not quite yet at the point where this seems plausible. You will be at some point, but that point may not be today.
    I wish you well on your journey.

  3. Explain me how someone’s soul is able to manipulate genetics, knowing that a body is a mere vessel which contains the soul for a limited period of time, as well as it is not made out of a material substance.

    Were this theory of yours true, should I not be able to shapeshift my genotype – through my thoughts – into any physical characteristic I so wished to possess?
    If not, how do you explain the correlation between behavior and genetic enhancement or deterioration?

  4. Frank,you need to research epigenetics, how memories/traumas are passed on in DNA and i.e can influence subsequent generations in a negative way.So can other dysfunctional behaviours be passed on. DNA records not just physical traits,but memories of ancestors and traumas they have exprienced influenced pychological and physical abnormalities -look it up.It makes sense if there is a physical evolution why wouldn’t there be psychological evolution to iron out dysfuncyional legacies.

  5. there is no responsibility here, nor am I saying this is the entire truth (the article). Simply put, you can be a victim of past lives (family) in the sense that you came to earth thru them (your parents) so whatever they were constantly thinking and the actions they chose… you will carry a percentage of that energy.
    How would you explain your child being your exact replica (looking like you)?

    if you drank too much booze and ate processed foods and GMOs then obviously your child would be more inclined to that sort of energy.

  6. The real problem is that NO ONE can obtain that peace that each one of us is looking for. This actually is due to a genetic problem in our blood lines. Being free from that is the most important jewel that you will ever find. Can you find that true peace? Yes! Certainly! The ONLY WAY to get rid of that guilty feeling deep within us and the “passed down problems” is to find the peace that surpasses all human understanding. He is a person called Jesus Christ, and 2000 years ago He died for my sins and for yours. He offer you freedom from the guilt by believing in Him! John 3:16 in the Holy Bible. Look it up. He loves you and can free you from that “bad karma” you feel like you are experiencing. Jesus loves you.

  7. Agree with you Frank.
    Though our own pain bodies may have grown from any unconsciousness in our parents their
    ” spirituality ” does not impose their karma on us.
    @ Autonomous, Epigenetics is a fetus like stage of a new industry (tamas) .

  8. In this social science experiment, most would observe an array of reactions,
    positive and negative, since retirement is frequently seen as mixed blessing;
    the majority of us perceive both bad and the good aspects regarding this final stage in your life
    – some avoid the word altogether, and some jump right in,
    yacking away about fishing trips, cruises as well as other
    typical retirement banter. We are haunted by way of a
    must look much like the women inside the fashion periodicals – women that diet
    themselves as a result of below weight, to the camera, without regard with their health.
    The point is always that their world has two distinct parts: meditation and everything else.

  9. Thank you for some other informative blog. Where else could I get that type of info written in such a perfect means?

    I have a venture that I’m just now working on, and I have been at the look out for such information.
