Shamanic Journeying to heal ancestors

This month’s Year of Ceremony journey was lead by Hank Wesselman. He is a very good teacher. I will take two major things from his teachings:

  1. My Inner garden (the place I visit in my meditations) can be ‘gardened’

This week, when I went in to it, I planted sunflower seeds and a frangipani seedling. I look forward to watching them grow. I also allowed the river to pool into a little pond where dragonflies wizzed around and grasses grew. It is more and more visible and beautiful to me. Hank said that anything we do in our inner garden will reflect in our real waking life. I’m going to weed next time 🙂


  1. It is possible to heal those who have passed.


Hank spoke about how we are all connected and that the dead remain around through us and even around us for a few generations. When we heal ourselves we heal those that have come before and those that come after. I set the intention before the journey to meet and offer healing to my grandmother but instead it was my grandfather “poppy’ who came. We hugged and did a little fun jig and he accepted healing. He lay on a high thin bed. I invited a healing angel to come. I started my own healing for poppy. At some point a very big angel in armour came to stand at the foot of the bed and smothered us in the strongest light. I felt many , many souls around poppy, in a circle around the bed, heads bowed. Each had their hand on a nearby shoulder that spread around the entire group, eventually leading to one hand on my shoulder as I sent healing through my hands to poppy. We were all connected and all lending our love and energy to the healing. I thanked them all and hugged poppy then left. It was magical.


Journey work is very different to trance channeling. In the latter, you allow a spirit to come through you and give a message etc. In the former, you enter another world and in this space many more things are possible.
