From Maya Tiwari, “Honoring your ancestors is the first step in reclaiming your spiritual heritage. As you begin to recover your ancestral memories, you will also uncover unconscious, troubled memories that prevent you from knowing the truth of who you are. According to the Vedic sages, we humans are the only species which has the power of intuition. Yet too easily we forfeit our sacred birthright and with it the ability to change and grow, create, and strive for inner freedom. We have largely forgotten the joy, love, and wellness that are intrinsic to human nature.”
Ritual is back and more needed than any other time in our human history. The more plugged in we get the more our nerves crave the rhythmic healing spaces of ritual. Our ancestors used rituals to celebrate, honor, and heal their ancestors. Yes- even and especially the ones who were dead and gone.
This seems far out in our forward moving modern culture. The problem is, when we don’t create the time and space to honor our ancestors, we carry their baggage into our future. Which means our dharma, our kids, our lives are all influenced by what we’re not taking the time to process.
Ask around. Who of your core peeps does ritualized honoring of ancestors? Ask them them what it gives back to them. Why they do it. How they do it. What rituals have they fallen into? ANd if none of your core peeps has ventured into ancestral terrain - be the ripple - and it will grow.
