Interviewer: What made you want to experience Bloodline Healing?
Mika: We had a family therapist, Eileen Walkenstein who wrote a book, The Imprinters. She wrote about family bloodline history and that we carry on our parents or family’s unfinished business. And that sort of opened my mind to the importance of this bloodline healing. Then I started working with George, it just expanded.
Interviewer: The Ancestral Dialogue is the part of the workshop where participants speak directly to their ancestors. Can you describe what you remember from the experience?
Mika: The way that George slowly and deliberately prepared us for that experience was really powerful. He talked about boundaries and limits and grounding in oneself and developing a protective shield. And all of that led up to this feeling that I was safe there, and ironically I wanted to risk it all.
I have three children and two were so easy and then this third child was my challenge. I tried so hard to be a good mother to her and it just wasn’t working. So I got angry at her. I really played a lead in trying to create this family mythology that this child was a difficult child, but it all was because I wasn’t getting feedback from her that I was a good mother to her. She had a different kind of energy and instead of just being open to learning about her, I kept trying to compress her energy instead of understanding it. In my own childhood everything was about keeping me tight and together. I really was carrying through my mother’s lineage. And then things really, really shifted.
Interviewer: Did you notice a shift in your emotional state after the workshop?
Mika: I felt so much sadness and grief about all those years when she was vulnerable and I kept pushing her to shut up and conform. Afterwards, I read all her notes that she had given me. And every step of the way, she was trying to communicate with me and trying to say in her own way what she needed. Because of my own family history I was not going to tolerate that. I was going to let her know who was in charge. She just wanted a heart connection. The amazing thing that happened was that my daughter was out of the country at the time, but I texted her something very simple. For whatever reason, she could feel the shift in my energy and she wrote back a response that just opened my heart even more and it’s been better ever since. We still have stuff to work on, but we are on a different plane now.
Interviewer: Did the workshop help you to clarify plans in your life, or some other kind of practical shift?
Mika: This relationship shift meant the world to me. I’m a core energetics practitioner and it has helped me so much in my work. This shift that happened in this workshop has helped me so much in my work with clients. I can be open to all of their goodness and all of who they are. It was major, this relationship shift and how I can generalize it in my life.
Interviewer: What is your advice to someone who would like to try Bloodline Healing for the first time?
Mika: It’s a great gift to experience and it’s a gift not only personally, but also in relationships in people’s lives and opening up lots of old blocks. Prepare to be profoundly affected. In other words, the more you can bring the more you can get out of it.
