A young woman I'll call Lana came to Dr. Seshat having been hospitalized multiple times with a diagnosis of "Bipolar Disorder." Her first reading reveals that there are beings who wish to work with her, and these "episodes" where she "decompensated", ie. had a breakdown/manic episode, were times when they were kicking the door down, pushing her to make contact with them. They also explained about where she landed within the Ancestral Realms during these episodes, and why it was so uncomfortable. Yet because these breakdowns and hospitalizations were so disturbing, Lana was furious at the though that she was being forced to communicate with the ancestors, and that they would allow her to suffer so.
In the audio track below, you will hear as they explain that before she gets angry at the ancestors, she must first remember who they are! And she must understand these challenging experiences in the context of the unbalanced society that we are living in here in the belly of the beast. They explain how she ran to various places in Queens, etc., to Afrocentric cultural gatherings, in search of herself. And how it was the call of the ancestors that led her embark on this journey to find herself through her traditions. You will also hear references to a gathering with "white people" where she "did not smile". This refers to an uncomfortable incident where she was surrounded by those who "do not look like us", as we say, and she felt ill at ease.
Over time, Lana will piece together how her journey to strengthen her cultural identity and communicate with the ancestors will bring her back into balance. In this way, the ways in which she reacts to this unbalanced society will be less jarring. and she will be able to communicate with the ancestors in a harmonious way.
Feel free to listen to our exchange in it's entirely, or merely to have a glimpse to get the message that you need at the present moment.
