This page is about seeing and hearing the ancient ones, the ancient spirits, the spirit guides. These spirits are around you always and are waiting to communicate with you. They are part of the earth’s structure, part of Her way of healing herself. They are part of the universe’s way of growing and spiritually evolving. In my view the ancient ones are the memory of the earth. They are in accessible to us like our own memories and they are the consciousness body of the earth.
The first step in seeing and hearing the ancient ones is to open yourself up to the fact that they exist and are around you always. The second step is to open your eyes and look for them.
If you go to where they lived, the voices are clearer and easier to hear. Now going to where the ancient ones lived is no easy proposition. But they lived everywhere. So why is it not easy to go to their lands? The reason is that when we build a whole city over a sacred site it muffles the voices, they are harder to hear. And there always were special places that were more sacred, holy spots, power places where the resonances were higher and the powers more easy to access.
So where do you go? The best places are the sacred sites in nature, the springs, rivers, mountains, caves, ancient trees. Also good are sites where ceremony was done, like mounds, stone circles, paintings on rocks, petroglyphs, temple sites, churches, ley lines. Next are village sites, places of trade, old routes of travel.
When you have gone to where the ancient were most intensely you call for them to come. The simplest way is to just ask them to come to you. You can do this by inviting them, out loud or in your thoughts. All you need to do is concentrate and with intention call them forth. All traditions did this is a prayer or invocation and most involved a ritual and an offering.
It first called in Great Spirit and then gave thanks for the earth and its directions. Then it asked for the ancient ones to come and then they waited. The prayer or ritual you do are up to you. As you get experienced in calling in the spirits, you will discover or remember your own way of doing this. The medicine wheel is one of the most basic ways of calling in the ancient spirits. If you build a medicine wheel you define sacred space and invite them to you clearly. But the most important point is to make intent, pray, and open yourself up to their voices.
