Call on the spirits of your ancestors

Never close you mind, stay open to seen and unseen communication from the ancestors.

Call on the spirits of your engaging, loving, evolved ancestors

African Spirituality | Call on the spirits of engaging loving ancestors.

Ancestors can help cross-dimensionally, there are so many things your ancestors want you to know. We all have ancestors, both of blood and of spirit, and each of our lives rests firmly on the foundation of their sacrifice.


Call on the spirits of your ancestors they want you to know...

Kindred hearts no distance parts. 

We are all ghosts. 

We all carry, inside us, people who came before us.

We only part to meet again.

In heaven, the ancestors are advancing continually to the springtime of their youth, so that the oldest angel appears the youngest.

The human heart is like heaven; the more ancestors the more room.

Tomorrow is pregnant and no one knows what she will give birth to.

Cultivate quietness in your speech, in your thoughts and in your emotions.

Rejoice in searching out ancestors because we allow the Spirit to inner into our heart.

My dear child, our souls will always be connected.

A generous person is like a fountain watering the earth and spreading fruitfulness.

Ancestors come to visit us, and we only know them when they are gone.

He who loves goodness harbors ancestors.

People will not look forward to posterity who never looks backward to their ancestors.

Call on the spirits of your ancestors.

Kindred hearts no distance parts.

Cabo Verde has a strategic location 310 miles or 500 km from the west coast of Africa near major north-south sea routes; important communications station; important sea and air refueling site.
