January 12, 2010 Ancestor Pot


I made my own Ancestors Pot . . . What is the Ancestors pot?

 It is a vessel used as a connection to the other world, to communicate with your ancestors and your Gods! The Ancestors Pot is a kind of magic mailbox by which your wishes are sent out into the universe to your forefathers asking them to please help with the fulfilment of your wishes.
I wrote 10 wishes (goals for 2010) - start each wish with "I" and use the present tense. I put the wishes in my bedazzled box from Pier One (historically Ancestor Pots were ceramic, and I'm sure there is alot of spirituality involved - I don't mean to belittle this belief or practice - this way works just fine for me). Now, I put the box safely out of sight, I won't think about these wishes, I'll just let my ancestors do their work. ( I got this idea from the January 2nd blog of http://bilderundworte.blogspot.com/)

  1. I love this! I'm going to borrow this idea and make my own. I hope our wishes come true! Thanks for the inspiration. *Hugs* ~Jamie

  2. Me too. A great way to start the new year. Thanks for sharing. To add to this... my husband wants to have a burning ceremony. write down all the things you are holding onto in an unhealthy way and burn them in the fire. Out with the old in with the new.
