Harness the power of the Shradh period by connecting with your Ancestors

by | Spirituality and Awareness

We are born with the physical characteristics of our ancestors by which we feel connect with ancestors  ‘ eye color, skin color, hair color, and so on. We also arrive into this life with other ancestral markers, which are subtle but no less significant, such as unsolved concerns from the past, such as emotional heartbreak, abandonment, and disasters caused by war and starvation. 

Most of the time we are not aware that we are carrying this burden from our ancestors for several lives and we suffer due to the blockages caused by this. However, during Pitra Paksha (Shradh Period) we pay homage to seek blessings and guidance of our ancestors to show us light and unburden us from all the blockages we are carrying in our Soul Plan. 


The roots of the word ‘Shradh’ are in the word ‘Shraddha’, a combination of two Sanskrit words “Sat” meaning truth, and “Adhar” meaning basis.  Shraddha signifies any action performed with all faith, honesty, and sincerity. During Shradh, a 16-lunar day period, we perform rituals to aid our ancestors who have attained the Pitra Loka (The world of Ancestors) to gain momentum for their onward journey. We don’t only honor our deceased family members, but also contribute to their Ascension journey.

Some Spiritual Tips to Connect with Your Ancestors and Initiate Ancestral Healing: 

1. Meet your Ancestors through your heart space: 

“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing

and rightdoing there is a field.

I’ll meet you there. “- Rumi 

You cannot receive guidance and love if your heart is shut. Judgment, stubbornness, and bitterness do not invite guidance. However, accepting that these emotions are there and opening your heart to healing will move mountains. Affirm that your heart is open to ancestral wisdom from your healed ancestors. 

2. Let your roots be a part of your prayer: 

If you have an altar for your spiritual practices, add one object to it that reminds you of your roots, your lineage. Let that one object of remembrance remind you that you are supported and that you carry ample experience and wisdom. 

3. Go into your Akashic Records to learn the truths of your ancestry:
