Spell of the Month: Cemetery ritual for the ancestors

Intriguing ritual for the ancestors found in the graveyard

This is a ritual for the ancestors that I stumbled across in the graveyard one day. It is way more than a simple spell,. This is a full Voodoo working, perhaps preparing  for this coming October when the veil is thinning. Maybe the offerings are for a birthday or an anniversary.You never know what we will find while touring off the beaten path in New Orleans graveyards. Join me on Bloody Mary’s high noon cemetery tours or latter times on Ghost town tours city and cemetery after dark outings.

Here lay the proverbial purple eggplant. It is from the family of night shade, the perfect shade for mourning and the color of the spirits of Le Morte, the dead.  It is also served with a side of yams, an African sweet potato delight. The person topped them with coins of the realm surrounding the offering and inserted within. All of this is nestled in a cornmeal Ve-ve made to Maman Bridgette. Offerings of coins and libations are normal, but we also scatter a few flowers (also of purple hue).

We really do need to feed the spirits, especially our own ancestors, in our own way, at special times.

Note the  small stack of stones pyramidically set, also known as a Cairn, used mainly as markers or memorials  The Celtic Saint Bridget and the Loa of the same name  share this offering preference. All in all makes a wonderful feeding for Our Mother of the Bones and a perfect cemetery ritual for the ancestors. The Haitian Voodoo Mama Bridgette has a bit of a Celtic twist. Bridgette,  is for wisdom and justice; and has not justice been in the hands of the realm of the dead for quite some time…

 * Ve-ve is a voodoo symbol signature of the mysteries, or Loa. It serves as a ritual diagram that becomes a consecrated altar of the spirit who can be embedded in its formulae. It can be made of cornmeal, flour, goofer dust, powdered talc, chalk, coffee grounds, brick etc…

    I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything. However
    just imagine if you added some great imsges orr videos to give
    youur posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent bbut with pics and video clips, this blog
    could undeniably be one of the very best in its niche.

    I do consider all the ideas you’ve offered on your post.

    They’re very convbincing and can definitely work.

    Nonetheless, the posts are too quick for starters. Could you please prolong them
    a bit from subsequent time? Thank you for the post.

    • bloodymary March 28, 2016 at 5:46 pm - Reply

      You may consider checking out my Vlog when i do live streaming for specific help but i just write a few tidbits on the site, My students apprentices and clients on workshops have more time to get more in depth. do try to join us if you make it to nNew Orlenas but the next best thing will probably be my webseries and my live streaming on you tube, a monthly free live streaming is avail as well as some produced shows for you to watch should follow and be available soon my you tube is bloodymaryneworelans also i have a special events subpage which lists when and where I will be touring outside of New Orleans too
      I hope to hear from you soon
