The conclusion of our conversation with Andrew Ecker on Belief Busters Podcast discusses how to honor our ancestors and ancestry. Using sacred medicine we hold the experiences of our past traumas and see them for what they are, steps on our spiritual journey. We can choose to heal the traumas and honor the gifts we received from our ancestors. This is part two of two episodes.
Andrew Ecker, author of the ‘The Sacred 7’, his ancestry is Apache, Irish, and German American. Born into an inheritance of trauma, both his parents were addicted to drugs and died very young. Mom, Kathy Lindsey from a cocaine overdose, father, Dale Ecker from HepC caused from intravenous drug use. Growing up in the height of the Reagan and Clinton “War on Drugs” policies led Andrew down a path of destruction that included cocaine and heroin abuse until he made a decision to change his life while serving 3.5 years in federal prison for drug charges. Andrew found healing in his life through the use of ancient technologies including drumming and a ceremonial introduction process of his Native American ancestry he outlines in his book ‘The Sacred 7’.
