How to Setup Ancestor Altar & Give Offerings
Having an altar for your ancestors is a very important practice. Our ancestors, depending on their state of awareness on the “other side”, need help from us. Many people transition from this world into the spirit realm with no conscious awareness of the afterlife. Sometimes these souls get caught up in the lower worlds and within these worlds they (our ancestors) require a certain amount of energy.
This article will serve as a guide for setting up an ancestral altar. Feel free to use this guide as a blueprint and add to or take away what you like.
Ancestral altars serve as a portal or gateway for communicating and transferring energy from you to your ancestors and vice versa. After you setup and start to work with your ancestral altar you will have a beacon of light that attracts and satisfies your family members that have passed on.
When we help our ancestors they can assist us. There are benefits of not being in the human body and our ancestors can pull strings for us in the spirit realm to help us out in our earthly lives. Making offerings to your ancestors is a mutually benefiting practice that anyone can do with a little know-how and commitment.
It is very easy to setup an altar and you should have one up in no time! Have fun creating your altar and always remember to follow your Spirit Mind and intuitive faculties. If you feel that you should do something different than what I outline in this article, then go with that thought. It’s probably your ancestors telling you!
When more people honor the ancestors and invoke the gods, we will have less tragedies. Imagine a network of spiritual power and protection.

How to Give an Offering
Make sure you make an offering everyday. Get in a habit of making an offering before or after you eat breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
Be sure to keep some kind of fruit on the altar as this serves as an energy source that can be left on the altar for a few days. Usually the fruit you place on the altar will stay ripe longer!
You can refresh the bowl of water daily or every few days.
