Good Morning!

A friend invited the ancestors in to help with her mother who is aging.  It worked, and there was a noticeable shift in her mother's response.

I have been inviting my ancestors in and my biggest responder right now is my mother.  I feel her here, dropping air, energy, and enthusiam down the opening in my head as though it were a fireplace and I in need of fire.

I am grateful for this.  It may just be my imagination, or it may be something more.  Either way, I benefit.  Many people have an altar to their ancestors in their home.  I think the altar can be a physical creation in one's home, or an altar of the imagination burning in mind and heart.

I think it is a good day to call in the ancestors.  There is a Grandparent's Day in September, but that is a Hallmark holiday, created to sell cards in a month without holidays.   I google it and I am wrong.  It was created to honor those in nursing homes.  The intention was not just to sell cards, but to invite us to better honor our elderly. 

I call today Ancestor Day and invite my ancestors to come back in and play.   I feel them gathering and the spin of a party begins.
