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.



   Merry Christmas
