Seven Generation Healing

Seven Generation Healing

This morning I had the privilege of conducting a seven generation healing.

What is a seven generation healing?

A seven generation healing is a very profound ceremony that calls on your ancestors from seven previous generations to empower you to clear, heal and release any issue that you are currently facing.

It allows you to call on the wisdom, love, experience and support of the people who came before you, whose DNA you carry.

The seventh generation principle comes from Native American traditions. The concept is that if you make any choice – be it personal or professional – you should consider how your choice will affect the next seven generations.

Technically, a generation is usually considered 25 years. A seven generation healing calls on the people who came before you over roughly the previous 175 years. You are the result of their choices, their karma, their thoughts, words and deeds, so you can go back to access this energy at any time, any place.

I have been practicing seven generation healings for so many years – maybe 20 years by now – I can’t remember exactly where I was taught.

I have rarely conducted such a ceremony where the client involved did not shed many tears. It is a very profound natural healing method because you suddenly experience for yourself that you are not alone, that you have never actually ever been alone and that you have always been surrounded by more love and support than you ever even possibly imagined.

If you study DNA, you will find:

  • You – 100 percent of your DNA
  • Your father – 50 percent of your DNA
  • Your paternal grandfather – 25 percent of your DNA
  • Your great grandfather – 12.5 percent of your DNA
  • Your great-great grandfather – 6.25 percent of your DNA
  • Your great-great great grandfather – 3.125 percent of your DNA
  • Your great-great-great great grandfather – 1.56 percent of your DNA
  • Your great-great-great great great grandfather – .78, or less than 1 percent, of your DNA

The gentleman I was working with had recently lost a significant amount of his wealth due to circumstances beyond his control. His goal in working with me was to rebuild his business.

Although at first glance, it might seem that this issue was merely about money, the loss of the business that he had worked his entire life to build had ripped him apart at literally every level – physically, energetically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.

Not only had this loss affected him, it had affected the clients he had lost to a new owner. He had recently revisited his old business and his former clients had actually run after him down the street, beseeching him to intervene on their behalf as the new owner was not half as kind, compassionate or helpful.

Just as we are the effects of the thoughts, words and deeds of the seven generations that preceded us, the actions we take in this life have a ripple effect that goes not only through our own mind-body and our own family but into the community surrounding us.

One of the former clients had even filed bankruptcy. Distraught, unhappy that the new owners had not been able to work out a better deal for him, the man was clinging to the desperate hope that my client who had lost the business might have a shred of information that could help him hang on.

When we discussed the healing, I asked for guidance and received that the best way forward was for us to do a seven generation healing.

Here, in brief, is the procedure:

  1. Set the goal you are working on. In this case, our goal was for my client to rebuild his business easily by grace in perfect time.
  2. Find the emotion or emotions. This is always crucial because emotions carry so much energy.
  3. Determine which side of the ancestry needs to be contacted. It would either be the paternal line (your father, paternal grandfather, great grandfather and so on) or your maternal line (your mother, maternal grandmother, great grandmother and so on).
  4. The client stands at one end of a room, beginning with himself. The practitioner, in this case me, sits nearby with a pad and pen to record the information as it is being received. Beginning with himself, the client calls on his own soul and asks for guidance about how to clear the issue at hand.
  5. The client then takes one step backwards to go back one generation. In this case, we went through the paternal line, so my client called on his father, who is now deceased. My client asked for the soul of  his father to be present. Then he asked to be shown any pictures that would offer guidance. Then he asked for words of support and asked for assistance at the soul level. I recorded the information as it was being received.
  6. Then the client takes a step backwards to go back to the next generation. Calling on the soul of his paternal grandfather, he asked to be shown any pictures and given any words of encouragement. The client asks for assistance. I recorded the information.
  7. We continue the healing, taking one step backwards and contacting the souls of the ancestors through seven generations.
  8. After the last generation has been contacted, the client then steps forward again, one generation at a time and thanks each soul for their love, guidance and support. Finally, the client comes back to his own generation, himself, usually a very changed individual.

What was it like to experience a seven generation healing?

“It seemed real to me because it was as if I were actually speaking to my ancestors,” my client said afterwards. “As a result it was very moving. I felt very supported and believed that I was actually going to receive their help.”

What is healing?

True healing happens when we ask for guidance at the soul level and actually listen.

  1. Catherine,

    What a beautiful article. I find your abilities to be very peaceful and insightful. Finding the seven generations of healing is a wonderful way to bring awareness to one’s self. I would love to see what you have done to bring light to others by supporting them with this technique. Sending you best wishes and love.


    • Dear Marina, There are many effective healing techniques, as you may know. I have found the seven generation healing technique to be particularly profound. One man I worked with is a distinguished college professor. When we did this healing, he actually wept. Many people are not aware how much they are guided and uplifted by the generations who came before us. Thank you so much for reading my blog! Love and light, Catherine

  2. It sounds like something similar to Family Constellations, since they both work with the family soul. Very beautiful and insightful. So, a question–If I am having money issues and I need to “manifest” a house ( I have lost 3 houses in my life so far, and so did my mother)–would ie be a good idea to start working with the money issue, or specifically with the house issue? I feel that they go hand in hand.

    • Dear Claudia,
      Thank you so much for reading my blog. I appreciate readers like you. You ask a very good question. Many of us have more than one issue that needs to be resolved so that more than one healing may be necessary to clear all the seed thoughts that have created your current situation. Please know I offer a FREE 15-minute consultation for all readers of my blog. The purpose of this consultation is to determine whether we are right to work together as I do work with clients by phone and Skype all over the world. The fact that both you and your mother have lost 3 houses during your life indicates that this may in fact be what’s called a genome – a genetic thought pattern. I am sorry this has been such a struggle but it is good that you are looking at the situation from this perspective and asking yourself how these patterns A began and B can be resolved. Lastly, I will say that all of us have issues that are hidden so deeply in our subconscious that we ourselves may not be able to resolve them. In this case, it’s always wise to seek outside assistance to clear them. Hope this helps! Catherine Carrigan

      • I have had relationships/friendships blowing up in my face. Everyone I have trusted and start to trust has started running from me and blaming me. Anyone I have valued as someone important in my life has been turning me into someone hideous and repulsive to them. It had been causing me so much pain this year. I have thought I have been doing generational clearing through the body code, but another one just blew up in my face this week. He was someone I truly valued and trusted as a friend and he got rid of me out of his life. I considered him a close friend, I had no idea he wanted nothing to do with me. We did have a rift in a couple of our last conversations, but I was mad at him not someone I wanted to lose. He dropped me out of his life without letting me know. I feel like the freak that no one wants to those that have been the most important to me. It’s been an ongoing pattern since my grandmother passed away.

  3. Hello Catherine,

    I am very impressed with your healing modality. I have read about past life regressions (i.e. The Journey of Souls by Michael Newton). We recently released our first book, SOUND—The Fabric of Soul, Consciousness, Reality, and the Cosmos. The entire work reminds involves vibrations from thoughts, emotions, and deeds, and how these energies interact with cosmic vibrations to create our individual realties. I would be interested in your consultation to learn more about healing.

    • Hi Joao, Thank you so much for reaching out to me. I have a huge menu of healing services. Whenever I work with clients, I ask your soul what it needs to make a shift. One of the modalities I use is actually sound healing. I have a series of tuning forks that can be used to balance energy and then of course there is resonation, where the client himself needs to make the most therapeutic sound (crying, laughing, sighing, shouting, groaning, etc.). I look forward to learning more about the work you do. As you know the field of holistic healing is wide and encompassing. We are each making contributions in our own way, bringing our own life experience and learning to the betterment of all mankind. Love and light, Catherine Carrigan

      • Hello Catherine,
        I apologize for the long delay in responding. I did not forget your kind correspondence. I appreciate the wisdom you shared and look forward to remaining in contact. All Love, Joao Mendes

  5. Dear Catherine,

    Thank you for your article. It’s exactly what I have been looking for. I will attempt to hold this ritual by myself. I’ve been told years ago to conduct it- but never felt ready. I am ready now, but as I had forgotten the steps, I was very pleased and grateful to find them outlined on your blog.

    Wishing we well.
