    I understand that it is about invoking and communicating with the ancestors and not worshipping them. Now my question is--which ancestors? Can I dial the extension of the ancestor I want or will my invocation be answered by the next available operator? Are there certain types of ancestors that I should avoid and how do I avoid them? Are there certain types of ancestors I won't be able to communicate with and why not ?

    Sistah River you ask a number of very pertinent questions here. I've posted a few dos and don'ts concerning appropiate protocal concerning invokation and communication with your ancestors (ogun, and the Orishas), however brotha Ifasehun has a very comprehensive website addressing this issue at length and in great detail. Here is a link to his site.

    May your ancestors raise you conciousness in an every ascending spiral of strength, health and life.

    YOU CAN NOT JUST KNOW THE NAMES OF THE ANCESTORS , YOU MUST IMPRESS UPON YOUR SPIRIT THE UNDERSTANDING OF WHO AND WHAT THAT ANCESTOR IS AND WHAT! HE OR SHE STANDS FOR LET THE RIDERS IN THE BOAT GUIDE YOU. THE ANCESTORS OF THE ONES THAT DWELLED HERE FIRST.

    Is it easier to communicate with an ancestor you knew in your present existence? For example, if I tried to communicate with my father who has passed on versus trying to communicate with someone further up in the family tree?

    Usually! however your relationship with your father may be closer or distant than a sibling. The efficacy of communication with an ancestor is often contingent upon the quality of character between the ancestor and the family member.

    Are these people in your bloodline? If not, why have they decided to communicate with you?

    Can one communicate with historical figures that have passed on that are not in their bloodline... like if I wanted to talk to Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, or Rosa Parks?

    Thanks brotha Sek.

    I especially hoped to hear from you since I know you have communicated with ancestors and know about it.

    Shen Maat and Manasiac I'd also like to hear more about your experience.
