I have created some affirmations for healing in relation to ancestral wisdom.
Ancestral connection is a key aspects to African spiritually.
When someone leaves the physical body, the spirit still remains whether that is in the form of reincarnation or becoming an ancestor.
There is no division between the spirit world and physical world.
Within one west African cosmology the belief is the spirit remains as long as they are named and remembered.
I've been researching and studying African spiritual traditions for maybe 3/4 years and it has given me hope, connection and healing.
African traditions are demonised and misunderstood in the mainstream due to hundreds of years of colonial violence and indoctrination.
However, times are slowly changing and people are more aware and open to learn about these rich and diverse traditions.
