Ancestors, Ancestors, We Are Calling

Ancestors, Ancestors, We Are Calling

Ancestors, ancestors, we are calling
Ancestors, ancestors, hear our call

Sing or chant the above words for at least four rounds, as you stand in honor of the ancestors to welcome them. As you do, create a simple gesture to welcome the ancestors, such as prayer hands over the heart, or raised to the heavens. Ask your body to help you create it and include some form of movement. Have fun with it but also be focused on the welcome. Try it and see what happens.

This is a way of including those humans in your family lineage that have come before you and whose genetic and soul influence has a great deal to do with who you are today, those we can call ancestors. Even your deceased parents are your ancestors.

These progenitors have experienced what itís like to have had their energy in an animate, physical human form. They continue on with their teachings in spirit world, evolving spiritually beyond what we in physical bodies can even imagine, though some have touched this world through meditations, revelations, near-death experiences, or shamanic journeys from the point of death.

If you arenít already including ancestors when you call on spirit guides, please do. They want to help us and do avail themselves to us of their wisdom and understanding. Donít get me wrong; they arenít all saints, but they understand and experience things much differently once in spirit form. The wisest ancestors are the oldest ones, yet even recent passage into the spirit world offers a considerable dose of wisdom that they are more than happy to bring to you. They also can guide and protect you if asked.

We are in a time of critical change and need all the help we can get from the world of Spirit. The planet doesnít need saving. We just need to revise our relationship with this planet and live much more harmoniously with her cycles. And weíre doing the best we can. Just need the help of the ancestors.

I honor my ancestors...they came to this country from other lands...they had wisdom and strength I can only hope I had. I call on them to guide and protect me. I let them know that they are in my heart and in my memory. That I miss them..even those I never met. I have their blood and DNA...I am the reason they lived. I thank them.

I think calling on your ancestors from the past .... do you really know them? ... 4 or 5 generations ago? maybe even? I think calling on your spirit guides, if you do not know what you are could be dangerous.

Given that the primary problems this planets faces come from human technology, the most important answer to these problems is changing that technology. We have to get off of fossil fuels and transition to clean, renewable energy. If summoning magical beings somehow furthers that goal, then go ahead and chant.

Interesting- it certainly does not hurt to pray for one's ancestors. But to call out to them? They say we have to tread cautiously when calling out to the spiritworld. There are earth-bound spirits, disincarnate entities who could intrude and take on the "personality" of a dead relative.
Anyone who delves into this have to learn how to shield/protect before this endeavour.
Even before going into a deep meditation , it is wise to protect your sacred space, so as not to invite unseen negativities. Does not hurt to be cautious. There ARE many spirits roaming in this world.
