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.
