Why build an African Spiritual shrine
Sacred Space and Ancestors ExplainedImagine walking into a beautiful garden and seeing two people arguing and fighting. Most of us would just be aghast and realize or something is gravely wrong with what is going on it is because we understand about space as sacred its set apart is to be used for only one thing, peace.
One of the secrets of a happy spiritual life is set aside a sacred space like an altar in your home. When you set aside a sacred space, it has a similar effect as when you walk into a beautiful orchard filled with every fresh fruit imaginable. In my sacred space I have candles, water, and live plants, it is very beautiful and it is very small does not take up a lot of room and I use it for only one thing, prayer.
Sacred spaces make you drawn to prayer, as human beings were affected by our surroundings, quiet beautiful places remind us of a kind of purity of life. We must create ancestral scared spaces that remind us of Spirit spaces that draw our hearts to the helpful ancestral spirits. Sacred spaces tell us in all of who we are it is time to pray, time to enter into a relationship outside the physical; it is time to have that one-on-one commune with the ancestors.
If you want to make significant progress in communing with the ancestors, I strongly recommend that you set up a sacred space in your home for nothing else but prayer and if you do, I assure you that your struggles with talking and listening to your ancestors will be greatly minimized because that space will draw you to prayer every time you enter.
Spiritual Awakening and the AncestorsSpiritual awakening actually means awareness, you have a level of awareness of who you really are, of what your divine nature really is. You understand and you know you are a spiritual being having a human experience.
But what it actually means to be a spiritual me that you are Eternal that you are worthy that you are loved that you know that you exist that you're not just this being that's a part of the universe but you're the entirety of the universe. That you are the universe and the universe is you.
There is more to you than just a flesh and blood, more than that there was another aspect to be aware of the other aspect of you to the first stage of that usually is that you understand there's a spiritual part of you that you cannot see with your eyes.
This part is the larger part of you is the internal part of you; you are not separate from the whole but literally one. It is that right-thinking when we come to the understanding that we are a spiritual being.
Awakening really is when you boil it down to the smallest level is understanding your divine nature and spiritual essence. You are an eternal energetic being; you are not just this physical aspect of bone and blood and wasted energy vibrating on a temporary frequency that allows you to be human.
Do not misdirect your spiritual power from the ancestors. You have a connection to the spiritual and when you can see the whole breadth of yourself with the ancestors, you are being then become awakened and you will recognize that you have always been a part of the whole.
