Part 2 of my Lunch with Ariann Thomas
More questions from my lunch conversation with a Conscious Shifter Ariann Thomas…
How does Ancestral Lineage affect us?
Our ancestors, including our parents, grandparents and all those before us, give us the foundation of our genetic codes, our DNA. They also affect our beliefs, our attitudes and our value system. From that, the patterns of our lives unfold until we take charge and decide we have control of our destiny.
Can we change the “lineage code”?
Absolutely. What our ancestors and epigenetics tell us is that we get to choose how we live our lives by our thoughts, actions and beliefs. These are decisions we make each moment of every day. Our DNA is only our building blocks. We get to decide which one of those building blocks we use, and which one we discard.
How does this leave us accountable or unaccountable for our lives? T
his leaves us totally and completely accountable for our lives, our health, our relationships, our prosperity and our careers. We must decide how we think, speak and act. This will change our reality for ourselves and everyone around us.

How important is it for us to heal our family dynamic?
When we heal ourselves, we heal our family because we are all related and they are most closely related to us. Families are the foundations of society. When our families are healed. We heal the world.
I have often compared the family dynamic is like a cult in that you keep drinking the cool aid in order to fit in. What are your thoughts about the breaking or maintaining a family dynamic?
The first thing to do is to heal yourself. You cannot impose you will on another. Everyone has free will to choose their own life. However, when you change, your change will affect how they see the world. When they see how much healthier, happier and abundant your life is, they may start to question their own beliefs in their own time. I believe if we maintain family ties, we can influence positively others by our example. That said, if there are some people in the family that pose a danger or cause damage to others, then sometimes the best thing to do is to hold them in your heart in love and compassion but keep them at a distance in the world until the healing takes place.
Families are our greatest strength and our greatest weakness. We choose our birth family in which to learn the lessons we needed in this lifetime. They give us our best qualities as well as teach us what we need to heal.
