They say the veil between the worlds is thin on Hallomas Eve, aka Halloween, aka Day of the Dead, aka Samhain. I have found it so, and the curve of time-space may let us visit not only with Ancestors, but with those to whom you yourself are Ancestor!
Stand, then, in the middle of a room between two open windows. Look toward the window on your left. Glimpse, outside the window on your left, a weaving line of Ancestors, beginning with your parents and grandparents, vibrating back into obscurity. Look toward the window on your right. Glimpse, outside the window on your right, the Descendants of your body or your heart, a pulsing line of people you do no recognize but who seem so familiar.
In the room in the house of your life-time, you close your eyes. You hear a humming like a bee hive, you feel a wave throbbing with life and generativity. You sense your throbbing place in a cord of life-times. You open your eyes and walk toward one of the windows. Notice which window you have approached, the Ancestor window on your left, or, the Descendant window on your right.
You lean out of the window to look. A figure in the distance, 200 years before you, or, 200 years ahead of you, is trying to get your attention, smiling at you with radiance. When you give this figure your attention, a clear focus emerges, You greet the figure with a bow and you begin your Day of the Dead visit, full of curiosity and gratitude.
