Does the question I posted in the title of this article trigger you in some way? If so, then I have your attention. My target for this article is that you open your heart and mind and help you begin to question your reality.
As the world sits in their homes for the better part of the last month and a half or longer, we are learning a new way of BEING, THINKING, FEELING, HEALING, and CHOOSING. Many call this The Great Awakening. Many are choosing to exit the Matrix (a land where we are controlled, programmed, used as slaves for a select few.)
The old way is gone and will not return. We must ask ourselves, ‘What do I need to look at within myself to contribute to the changes on this planet? What healing do I need to do so we can go from dark to light? What are all the things in my life that have kept me under someone else’s control or have programmed me to believe things that aren’t actually true for ME? What are things that have kept the human race DIVIDED and in an energy of ANGER and HATE?’
“The Matrix is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.” Morpheus in the movie The Matrix.
The choice to know will be yours. What will you choose?
I used Genealogy here as one of many ways we allow the matrix to control us. Divide us. Make us blind to the truth. We could substitute any number of things we enjoy or are involved in (Education, Religion, Politics, Exclusive Organizations, etc.
The main questions to ask yourself are, How does my participation in this [whatever you chose] keep me bound in the matrix? Or am I aware it is a tool and I can use it for other purposes?
Let’s explore both sides of this question.
Is Genealogy a tool of the matrix?
First of all, I’m going to give you only a few examples on both sides of this question. It is up to you to delve deeper and consider how YOU feel about this question. To wake up and make new choices about how you use genealogy, or any other hobby, job, religion, political affiliation, etc. to stay in the programmed and controlled state you are in. We are all in various stages of this, though many are breaking free of this and raising their level of consciousness to make new choices for the new reality we are moving into.
Before we dive in – remember – no one is perfect. These questions are asked for you to look at your beliefs and choices in a non-judgmental way. We all are here to grow and change. If we can stop judging ourselves and others, change comes much faster.
In what ways is genealogy a tool of the matrix and how does it keep us programmed and under control? How does genealogy potentially keep us divided and in a negative energy state?
Well, we have DNA research. Not only do large companies have our DNA, but if you’ve been paying attention the last several years, most have given access to many law enforcement agencies without user permission. You have to ask – who else did they give my DNA to?
While we are on the subject of DNA – the results may create division as we separate ourselves by race or into ethnic groups or regions of the world. This can become a “my ethnicity or region is better than yours” issue. It can also create division when people are unaware they have family of Jewish descent or who came from Africa. Racism and division has not gone away yet on this planet.
Race, Ethnicity, Gender. Next we can explore tools like the Census that require a lot of personal information from us and our ancestors that allows people to be grouped and divided. Even though many people recognize that during the largest immigration to the U.S. between 1880 and 1920, and even before that as waves of different ethnic groups came over – there was a lot of discrimination and division. Remember how Irish and Italians were the “lesser people” until new groups immigrated?
This still happens today. It has been programmed into us whether we admit it or not.
Superiority Issues, Cliques, and Division. Have you noticed there are a lot of specialized groups available to those who fit a certain criteria? If you are willing to do the work to prove you belong? If you are willing to pay the fees to join? Think Mayflower Society, DAR, SAR, Daughters of the Confederacy, and there are so … many … more.
Have you ever considered why you choose to join these groups? What did they promote when they began? What do they stand for today? What do they promote? Why do we honor still today people and groups who promoted colonialism, destruction of native peoples, raping of the land, and slavery? Unfortunately within many organizations (genealogy or otherwise), if you aren’t part of the “club” you aren’t as valuable. Is that really the reality you choose to live in? Are those the beliefs you choose to have and promote?
Yes, these are hard questions to ask ourselves and until recently, people have not bothered to ask or been brave enough to ask. Even those people who are not affiliated with any of these groups – it is still in our DNA, passed down through our ancestors, a programming around race, colonialism, white bodied people versus everyone else. It is something everyone should look at within themselves.
Want to learn more about this specific question and the concept of White Supremacy? Read Resemma Menakem’s My Grandmother’s Hands, and open up to where all of this really came from and why people, even outside America, are still programmed to believe certain things about where we came from and who is “superior” and “worthy.”
Now let’s briefly explore the other side of this question. In what ways can we break free from the matrix and not allow genealogy to program and control us?
DNA Research. We can use DNA research in a more respectful way and push for companies to not sell or grant access but instead, use our DNA for what we signed up for. We can use it not for division but inclusion and creation. What kind of world can we create where we see everyone as valuable and equal regardless of ethnicity, race, gender, etc.? What kind of world can we create where vaccines will not put a microchip in us to be used to control our every move and choice? Are you ready to give up your freedom? I invite you to do some research on this right now.
Race, Ethnicity, Gender. Rather than dividing people based on these things through genealogy research, why not embrace the differences? Each person, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, job, political or religious affiliation, are on this planet for a purpose. We are all valuable. We all have something to contribute.
Superiority Issues, Cliques, and Division. In this new reality we are co-creating through this “Covid-19” military operation, my hope is we will all make choices that break down the barriers that once existed where only certain people are valuable. My hope is that those who have created these cliques and divisions will re-evaluate. Let’s be honest – even as adults – most of us experience the “high school cliques” energy. Is that really where you want to play or is some greater more abundant, expansive energy available?
Where in your life are you in an energy of being superior? Where have you formed cliques that exclude others because of (race, religion, they don’t have the right pedigree, they don’t believe in x, y, z, they are the wrong political party, etc.?) Isn’t it time we go deep within and get honest about where we function from? Is it time to look at the organizations to which we belong and ask if they really promote the values we choose to live by? Do we really need to continue to create so much division in the world?
Let’s explore inherited trauma and the “bad” guys
Finally, let’s look at inherited trauma and the “bad” people in our families. There is a lot of energy being played with on social media where people think it is funny they have a criminal of any kind in their family tree. It’s a competition to see who has the worst offender. I question why this is funny for you and would you consider it funny if your descendants laughed at things you did? This energy is another way to create division and programming.
For those who are hiding their “bad” ancestors, I invite you question why? That which remains hidden or ignored still affects us. I’m not saying bring it out into the public spotlight but do your inner work and choose how and who you will reveal the information to when the time is right.
Rather than play in this energy of “bad guy competition”, can we stop and explore who this person was, what they allegedly did, and the possible reasons for their actions? Whether you believe it or not, their actions affect you today. Their DNA is part of yours. This is another way to exit the Matrix. Our ancestors made choices that we should not be judging. We were not there to understand and see the other choices which led to that final choice or action.
Not only do we have to look at that within our families and ourselves, but we also have inherited trauma that is passed down. The best studies on this have been with Jewish Holocaust Survivors and their children and grandchildren. Their experiences, emotions, feelings, and whether or not they healed them, affect us today.
The problem is, our ancestors’ experiences and feelings are so decontextualized within our bodies and subconscious that when we are triggered over something that “shouldn’t be an issue” we don’t understand it and may react in negative ways.
Part of breaking free from the matrix is using our genealogy research and military research to go deeper into the lives and experiences and feelings of our ancestors to better understand what we carry in our DNA today.
That deeper work is what I have been focusing on with clients and myself for the last three years. We can use genealogy and military research to deprogram ourselves. To heal ourselves and our lineage in the past, present, and future if we choose it.
Question everything. choose something greater. create change in your life and the world. we are being given time to go within. we are being given an opportunity to create great change.
