Ancestor & Beloved | Ritual & Meditation

Now is the time to connect with your beloved ones who have left this earth.

Now is the time to connect with your ancestors.

As the veil between the physical world and celestial Spirit realm becomes thinner, access this connection with a light blessing.

As a death doula, I often receive requests on how to honor loved ones who have left this world.  And...how to connect with them.  


Here is a ritual and meditation to HONOR and CONNECT with those who hold place in your heart and have passed over to celestial Spirit realms.

Cultivate a space that is inspiring, quiet, and clean. It is often helpful to perform this ritual in front of an altar or in a sacred space. Find a space that is calming to you.

You are welcome to include photos or memorabilia that connects with your beloved or ancestor. Journal what you receive.

 

Meditation to Connect with BELOVED ONES

Light a candle.

  • Stand and shake your body. Shift your hips, shoulders, head.
  • Now, sit or REST comfortably with an elongated spine
  • Take a FEW BREATHS and exhale out the mouth.
  • If you have a breath technique you are working with bring this in now.
  • Breathe in and out of the nose. 
  • Bring your attention to your HEART and breathe 5 BREATHS.
  • ENVISION a white orb extending from your heart and around your body.
  • Take time to really feel this deeply from head to toe.
  • Inhale, Exhale CALL OUT your beloved's name. 

     

      PAUSE

      LISTEN

      PRAY 

 

  Express Aloud:  May the light of grace be with those I love.  

May the light of grace be with those who have seen and felt transcendence beyond this world.  

May the light and insight revealed to them be shown to me in my heart as well.  

As I breathe, I allow love to connect us.  

As I breathe, I allow gifts of golden truth to take seed in my heart.

As I breathe, I say thank you for all who come before me and their wisdom. 

     

      PAUSE

      LISTEN

      PRAY 

 

Express Aloud:  I recall a gift you have blessed upon me when you walked this earth. [Say this gift aloud.]

I thank you for this gift. 

I connect with a gift that you have blessed upon me after your departure from this world.  [Say this gift aloud.]

I thank you for this gift. 

 

      PAUSE

      LISTEN

      PRAY 

 

Allow your hands to rest at your heart and pause to receive further illuminated guidance from your lineage of light and beloved ones. 

When you are ready, say your beloved one's name one more time.  

Breathe into your heart. 

Take your time to move slowly and hold this feeling of deep love with you as you walk about the earth in the days to come. 

Return to this meditation as you wish.
