Connecting With Ancestors

Connect with an ancestor, either by genealogy or culture or choice. It may help to imagine or conjure their image, or perhaps you may just feel their warmth or light.

What might you thank them for? What questions do you have for this person? What advice do you seek from them? What might you tell them about this moment? How can you carry them with you?
