A Few Testimonials About Yeyefini..
"I had decided to prepare a meal for my ancestors. My father loved pinto beans so I had pinto beans and rice. Alanla told me about whiskey and coffee. Mom loved coffee. So, I had purchased flowers, put the additional ancestors pictures on the altar, placed the whiskey, beans and rice, coffee candles and water. I sat down in front and just told them how I was feeling, my concerns, worries and asked that they intervene. I also told them that I was uncertain about what to do--what to ask for, my role. I then began to experience images of the people on the altar (memories of my interactions with them). At one point I felt the urge to play music which I did. Mom's mom and mom loved Duke Ellington, Erroll Garner and for my younger ancerstor (which included my brother Michael) I played some Earth, Wind and Fire."
"Boy oh boy, it was a celebration going on!!! I don't know if word can describe how I felt nor can they adquately describe what went on..I was so uplifted, so grateful, so comforted, so loved, so ecstatic. I had told Mom and Dad before that I would prepare a meal for the ancestors at least once per month (knowing that would allow me to do it more often if led to do so), and I didn't know what to do at this time. But it felt that I was guided as I built up the altar, then decided to prepare this meal. The activities leading up to that moment was fun but the real fun was the actual celebration. I was guided! I felt the energy of my ancestors!!"
"While I asked for their intervention for Akilah; I felt the urge to also ask for intervention for my brothers son (whose name is also Michael); so I did. Do you know that this child sent me a New Years greeting via text? He has not done this in years."
"So, Yeye, I am a convert to my ancestor altar. Thank you so much for your guidance and the elevated meditation ritual! I'm excited about re-establishing or establishing my relationships, communicating, discovering and experiencing this relationship with my ancestors. Thank You......"
