Ancestors


Ancestors are our most easily accessed spirits who already know us, are connected to us, and need no introductions. They are the most difficult to make a bad mistake with.


Ancestors should be interacted with first, and continue to be a foundation when it comes to rituals and serving Spirits as a practice. They are our spiritual insulation, first advocates to the spirit world, and first defense from turbulence. When we elevate our ancestors we elevate ourselves. The worlds mirror.


When new to ancestor veneration all that's needed is a few photos from both sides of the family set up in a calm place in the house with low foot traffic. Treat your ancestor altar how many treat graves... Spend time there, talk to them, decorate…


If you feel that you have problematic ancestors or what you feel to be evil behaving ancestors… The way they were in life does not always completely carry over. Don't assume. If your life is hell and you just can't get a break, get a reading first before assuming that it's that bar fighting fire setting house destroying crazy ancestor.


Beyond that, legitimately problematic ancestors should be focused on the most for elevation. When you do this you bless them, yourself, and their elevation grants them a new focus, hereby getting them out of your hair in a loving way. One should never work any remotely negative magic on their own family.






When new to serving ancestors begin with simple offerings of light and water. The offering of light illuminates darkness not only in the spirits dwelling areas but also in the depths of your own mind. Water is an important medium for psychic functioning and spirit connection.


The act of offering water to a guest in your home is not only for a drink but also inviting your guest to cleanse and refresh themselves. It is also the medium by which spirits communicate. Sleeping with a glass of water near your head will create a medium by which they can deliver messages to you in your dreams.




Below is a simple yet powerful ceremony you can perform every Saturday to enhance your connection with your ancestors:


You will need: A white saucer or a white cloth placed on your nightstand or near your head where you sleep, a tea candle, and a glass of water.

Face east holding the lit tea candle and water in your hands and say, “Spirits of my family, father’s side and mother’s side, love honor respect.”

Pour a drop of water on the ground and bow by slightly lowering your knees without lowering your head. Turn right until you are facing west and say, “Spirits of my family, father’s side mother’s side, love honor respect.”

Pour a drop of water on the ground and bow again. Turn left until you are facing north and say, “Spirits of my family, father’s side mother’s side, love honor respect.”

Pour a drop of water on the ground and bow again. Turn right until you are facing south and say, “Spirits of my family, father’s side mother’s side, love honor respect.”

Pour a drop of water on the ground and bow. Take the water and candle and place them on the white cloth or saucer and go to sleep. If you are uncomfortable with having a candle burning in your sleep you may snuff it with a candle snuffer, but do not blow it out.


I would recommend marking the north, south, east and west wall in your room if need be.


The order goes, E turn right to W, W turn left to N. N turn right to S.
