Publisher's Summary

Find out everything there is to know about ancestral veneration and how it works.

Ancestral veneration is not a religion - nor is it worshiping the dead. This ancient and often misunderstood practice is found in spiritualities and cultures all over the world. In the West, our uncomfortable relationship with death has the unfortunate effect of suppressing the natural tendency to love and respect those who’ve gone before. In our culture, the practice tends to be limited to the odd anecdote, heirloom, or artifact. Old pictures under a plastic film in a photo album rarely taken out and explored.

But ancestral worship has survived upheaval, seismic change, and persecution for millennia and is still practiced in many cultures and religions worldwide. What do millions of people know that you don’t? That’s what you’ll discover in this spiritual guide to ancestral veneration.

In this audiobook, you will:

  • Learn how to connect with your ancestors, spirit guides, and guardian angels
  • Master the practices of other spiritualities and religions that openly and widely venerate the ancestors, including Mexican Roman Catholicism and American Hoodoo
  • Discover what spirit guides do and who they are
  • Learn about the impact of ancestral/generational trauma on our society and families
  • Learn how to build an ancestral altar
  • Learn how to please and honor your ancestors at the altar
  • Learn how to recognize signs of contact with the spirit world
  • Learn how to prepare yourself for an encounter with the spirit world
  • Discover how the ancestors, spirit guides, and guardian angels break through to communicate with us during times of crisis
  • Discover why the world needs ancestral veneration

Brilliant audible

I like the way the writer connects with her audience as a real person with real struggles. It is not easy for an African-American to begin the process of incorporating indigenous traditions and heritage all the while not being quite sure of what is relevant and valid. Brilliant audible.

A great start

This book was a great start for me. I'm on a path of obtaining knowledge about what I'm going through and the signs that have been shown to me. I'm still learning and this book helped with the information I've heard but not understood. I would recommend this book

Incredible Book

If you have NO CLUE what or where to start with working with the ancestors, then this is a phenomenal place to start. Yes, it is more catholic and Italian in work, and for some that may be off putting, but when someone gives you good information and how you can bring it into your own practice, you don't look at the past and how you may not agree. You learn and accept that everyone learns something from somewhere. That's what we do!

Very Practical Approach

This book takes a very practical approach to any household's needs. It doesn't demand fancy equipment. If it asks anything of you, it is primarily the investment of time and personal responsibility.

I found it to be very informative and appreciated

I found it to be very informative and appreciated the little easter eggs of the authors personal experiences and sometimes entertaining stories as well - and to make it even better, as soon as I began reading the book I set up an altar for my ancestors and got a couple checks in the mail from an art gallery I submitted pieces to a year ago with no results...so I think my ancestors approve!

I Loved It

Before purchasing and diving into this book, I had an ancestor veneration practice going. But I got to the point in my journey where what I was doing felt flat, and that I was not connecting with my ancestors anymore. I even questioned if I was connecting at all! This book really pushed me past my doubts and cultivated the confidence I needed to not only know when I am connecting, but to understand why we place certain offerings and other items on our altars.

This book is a good jumping off point

This book is a good jumping off point for ancestor veneration. The author lists good spells, suggestions for prayers, covers how to build an altar, etc. I like how down-to-earth this was. I like that she didn't try to glamorize witchcraft. Witchcraft isn't Hollywood. It's work and effort and research and figuring out what works for you. It's learning the culture and history of your ancestors and getting in touch with your roots. This is a worthwhile read.

Awesome Author

The creator has some knowledge with respect to this strain to purchase stuff if you have any desire to participate in agnosticism or wicca or makes no difference either way. I additionally get so burnt out on all that- - is it all essential? Like the creator, I have collected stuff throughout the long term and am currently attempting to not get affected by the most recent either. I additionally like that she raises Italian culture, to a great extent, and as an individual whose whole relatives (the two sides) are from southern Italy, I truly like the references. I like her blog, Italian Folk Magic, and I truly like this book. I really want to believe that she is intending to compose more books from here on out.

Recommended

This book truly has a ton to say in regards to tribal love. I am delighted to such an extent that I bought it and I realize that it will be one of those books I will peruse in the future. The writer knows how to compose, and she works effectively of getting sorted out all the data. There is even a file and I truly like that.

This book is an excellent

There are a few books out on Necromancy and Ancestral Veneration, but if you only were allowed one, this is that one. Anyone can pick up this book alone and have a deep and meaningful Ancestral practice and never run out of work. There are established traditions that have a thriving Ancestor practice associated with them, and that is amazing, but if you aren't a part of those you can feel kind of lost. This book is an excellent, easy to read compass to navigate by.
