Why You Should be Forming a Relationship with Your Ancestors

Working with your ancestors can be a deeply meaningful and transformative practice. Here are a few reasons why you should consider working with your ancestors:

1. Connection and Guidance: Your ancestors carry the wisdom, experiences, and ancestral energy that can provide guidance and support in navigating your life. By connecting with them, you can tap into their knowledge and receive guidance on various aspects of your life, including relationships, career, personal development, and spiritual growth.

2. Healing Ancestral Trauma: Ancestors can help you heal and transform ancestral traumas that may have been passed down through generations. By working with your ancestors, you can address and release any unresolved issues or patterns that may be affecting your life in negative ways. This can lead to personal healing and a sense of liberation. In turn, your healing brings healing to your ancestors as well as your descendants.

3. Cultural and Spiritual Heritage: Working with ancestors allows you to embrace and honor your cultural and spiritual heritage. You can learn about your ancestral traditions, rituals, folklore, and practices, and incorporate them into your own spiritual path. This can deepen your sense of identity and connection to your roots.

4. Ancestral Blessings and Support: Your ancestors want to see you flourish and succeed. By establishing a relationship with them, you can receive their blessings, protection, and support. They can also act as mediators between the physical and spiritual realms, helping you manifest your desires and intentions.

5. Ancestral Lineage and Legacy: By connecting with your ancestors, you become aware of the larger lineage and legacy that you are a part of. You can honor and continue the work of your ancestors, carrying forward their values, traditions, and teachings. This can create a sense of purpose and contribute to the wellbeing of future generations.

If you have unresolved issues with an ancestor or feel that an ancestor may be unhealed, you can always call upon your "elevated, compassionate and healed ancestors". These are your ancestors that can go back as far as hundreds or even thousands of years who are healed and elevated who you can safely connect to. I open every morning at my ancestor altar with this prayer:

"Good morning to all of my compassionate, elevated ancestral helping spirits of good character. Thank you for my life and thank you for all of today's blessings. Thank you for being with me today. Thank you for (now list any healing or assistance you would like for yourself and any healing and assistance that your living family needs for the day).

Thank you for protecting me and my living family from all harm intended and unintended from other people, spirits and situations and thank you for transmuting that harm into light and love. Thank you for protecting my dreams, work, projects and home from all harm and ill-wishing and blessing me with your love and strength so that I may bring goodness into the world today. Thank you and I wish vou good day!"

And, I end the day with this prayer:

"Good night to all of my compassionate, elevated ancestral helping spirits of good character. Thank you for your protection, love, blessings and support today. I wish you good night and now I must rest. Thank you for infusing me with your blessings, healing and protection through the night so that I can rest, heal and rejuvenate and be strong for what tomorrow brings. Thank you and I wish good night."
