Apologies to everyone for missing yesterday's Daily Devotional; I've been battling a fierce migraine, so today we'll get back on track, and I'll start writing posts and keep drafts ready to share in case I can't add anything to the site.
The Ancestral Holies is a concept that's peculiar to me and that I haven't seen very much written on; to review, this is associated with the second chakra and given regards there when meditating.
So what are Ancestral Holies? What a weird term, right?
Essentially, you can think of the Ancestral Holies as the places and objects that were important to one's ancestors- natural landmarks as well as specific buildings along with relics and even daily objects, such as clothing and jewelry and so on, that were important to one's ancestors. The concept of Ancestral Holies can be extended to kinds of food and songs that are passed down through the generations as well, even if it's not literally the same pieces of food.
To pay homage to the Ancestral Holies is to pay homage to the Ancestors and the Dead from a different perspective that also enriches our lives and will set the stage and energetic connections for our descendants.
As far as paying homage goes, this can be done in a number of ways- cultures that recognizes honoring Ancestors likely have rituals set forth to do this, but anyone, a simple energetic offering can suffice.
Tomorrow, we'll continue on this topic as we discuss the Ancestral Powers, which are highly related to the Ancestral Holies.
