A Gang of Girls Radio - Dia De Los Muertos - Ancestors






The Day of the Dead, Día de Muertos is a Mexican holiday associated with the Catholic celebrations of All Saints day Nov 1 and All Souls Day Nov 2, day of remembrance and celebration for our ancestors

Dia de los Muertos is celebrated in Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador and Guatemala.

The multi-day holiday that involves family and friends gathering to pray for and to remember friends and family members and ancestors who have passed through the veils.

There is some division of where the celebration comes from, whether is is Aztec or a present day celebration. It is now a national holiday in Mexico. The feeling i get is that it has an Aztec influence. Look at the different sugar skulls, the dancing skeletons, the beautiful altars people build. Houses are cleansed and blessed on this day and that may be the religion part of the celebration.

This is a tradition world wide, creating an altar for our ancestors, family members who have passed over whether is it on the Day of the Dead or on the days we celebrate our friends and family members death day.

We clear the graves, put/plant flowers, pictures and other possessions to honor the loved one.


When I was a little girl we used to go to a place in Los Angeles called Olivera Street to watch the Novenario Procession where there were Aztec Dancers the living Muertos - walking skeltons. They processed through Olivera street to bless different businesses and honor certain people.

 

The peoplle would also create community altars with marigolds, we could see from the street near the church. 


Follow the link to check out all the events at Olvera Street. They will not be celebrating this year because of Covid. You can get an idea and perhaps look around your town to see if there are similar celebrations for next year.

Every year I try to do something to celebrate my grandmothers. This year I found Rosie. I decided to hang her in my office to remind me of the good memories and happy times with my grandmothers.   




What will you do for your ancestors? 

Gratitude – what ancestors are you grateful for? 

They feel your gratitude and then they are also grateful! Th energy spreads through the different dimensions. It will assist with strengthening your bond and being able to hear their messages for you. 

 

Feliz Dia de Los Muertos! 


Remember to keep your heart open and aligned with the energy of LOVE!
