I’ve set up quite a few altars within my lifetime with the aid and essence of “spirit” carefully guiding and motioning my steps.
I’d actually feel and sense the energy of my ancestors and deities, and, if my deities weren’t pleased with something they’d let me know as to confirmation to the things I may have suspected beforehand as well as to what they were content with in regards to our own simultaneous commonality.
I had learned that my orishas and I shared the same features and attributes of particular behavior and attitude.
It is a wonderful and lovely fashion in which to connect, communicate, and acquire, personally and supernaturally.
Set aside a certain area most suitable and preferable to your liking and accord. The location of the altar can be established and situated anywhere one feels comfortable to prepare their spiritual vessel of dedication.
Upon the altar may be placed anything necessary in reference and into relation to who and what is being venerated and communicated with.
In addition, inner voice of spirit as well as spirit guides will further direct and navigate within accordance to other requirements and development.
We know when things start to run consistently smooth within our lives. The process is one that doesn’t happen for us overnight. Our steps and behavior are observed, tested, and measured yet along the way our venerated ones still do look out for us.
They protect and cater to our needs as they know, see, and understand our daily routines, interactions, and temporary setbacks or hassles. We don’t get penalized for things we’re not sure about or not clear on it’s about our dedication, loyalty, and mode of life within accordance to our own relevant and appropriate paths.
From my own personal encounters my ancestors and orishas gave me the chance in between to evaluate the fashions in which they operated as I developed a trust that became mutual as they already had the trust in me before they approached, guided, and revealed themselves to me in the beginning.
As we further learn and discover and heed to our inner voices of spirit we experience, evolve, and elevate. The more we do for our ancestors and/or orishas the more they will continue to do for us by providing unto them consideration/appreciation and the energy sources of preference and appeasement it must always come purely from the heart, mind, and soul. The priceless and valuable exchange is based on a love and respect that concurrently goes both ways.
Since we correspond with our ancestors and orishas between worlds/realms there are special courses of action that we have to undertake in order to collaborate effectively at higher levels of succession. And, whatever is required they will benevolently let us know.
