The desire to communicate with our ancestors is an innate part of the human experience. We intuitively sense their presence in our wisdom bodies and it begs the question: can we communicate with Ancestral Spirits?
Through daily prayer, mediation, creation of art, music, food, and ceremony, the ancestor spirits can communicate, guide, protect, and heal the living. Ancestral communication has been an ancient practice in every wisdom tradition throughout time. Your ability to connect with your ancestors is always available.
The Traditions of Ancestral Spirit Communication
Ancestral Spirit communications is an ancient and daily practice found in many cultures around the world, including Mayan, Celtic, Aborigine, Indigenous American, Ancient Greece, Ancient Eurasia, African Tribal, Tibetan, and the Vedic/Yogic traditions. Some major religions, such as the Catholic faith, honor the deceased on All Saints Day and All Souls Day with prayers, candles, incense, chanting, ceremony, and offerings. In Mexico, they celebrate the Day of the Dead (Dia De Los Muertos). And in the Celtic tradition, Samhain, which observes the transition time between the two worlds.
Ancestral Spirits are sometimes people that we knew, and others are ancient relatives that we have never met. An Ancestor may act as a Spirit Guide offering life advice from the other side. If you had a very special connection with your Grandmother or Aunt who has crossed over for example, they are very likely to surround your energy field, offering love, support, and guidance.
I Love Working with Ancestral Spirits
When I give psychic mediumship readings to a new client, some of the first people to connect and offer messages are their loved ones who have crossed over, or ancestors. Ancestral Spirits are sometimes people that we knew, and others are ancient relatives that we have never met. An Ancestor may act as a Spirit Guide offering life advice from the other side. If you had a very special connection with your Grandmother or Aunt who has crossed over for example, they are very likely to surround your energy field, offering love, support, and guidance.
When you’re starting out, working with an Ancestral Guide can be much more comfortable than working with a spirit that you are unfamiliar with. You can ask your Ancestral Spirit to help you and guide you with lessons in your life. Working with Ancestors can go deeper to heal family wounds carried through generations. I encourage a stronger relationship with ancestors through meditation, communication with Spirit, or family lineage studies. Families may be more or less familiar with their ancestry and the idea of Ancestral Spirits depending on what cultural background or your upbringing. Remember, just because you are separated from ancestors by generations and didn’t know them personally, doesn’t mean they can’t be a strong ally for you. Sometimes the most powerful helpers are the most ancient ones.
How I Work With My Ancestral Spirits
Sometimes Ancestors are here to guide us and offer help with our life path. I have a Grandfather Antonio who died before I was born. He was a business owner in his lifetime, so he will often offer great information about my business. He wants to help me be successful, and to make up for things he didn’t do when he was alive.
Another example is my Grandmother Bertha from my Father’s side who passed away when I was a young adult. When she first began connecting with me, she would simply send me loving feelings and emotions without speaking. I tend towards verbal communication, so this was a confusing experience to me at first, but my Grandmother taught me about empathic communication and feelings as a message from Spirit. Ancestors may help us attune and advance our psychic abilities in this way.
Working with Your Ancestors
There are many ways that you may utilize and work with your Ancestors to help you develop psychic ability, or to offer loving support. My suggestion is to choose Spirits that you feel comfortable with, so often loved ones or Ancestors are great Spirits to connect and work with. Ancestor Spirits may be five generations back, it may be that you never knew them in this life, but perhaps are familiar with who they were. They are still there for you. Keep in mind that an Ancestral Spirit may also be someone who was a step relative, or relative through marriage, an Ancestral Spirit does not necessarily need to be a blood relative.
Set your intention to connect with and receive messages of the Light from your Ancestors. You may set the intention of connecting with a specific ancestor, or you may intend to connect with any of your Ancestors, to see who you most easily connect with. Ancestors may offer messages as feelings, visions, verbal communication, songs, thoughts, or ideas.
Once you have connected, be prepared to ask one or two specific questions you need guidance on. Write down any information you hear, feel, see , know, taste or smell. As clarifying questions if you are not understanding the response or if needed additional detail. The more you connect wit your Ancestor Spirits, the clearer and more detailed the communication will get over time.
