"Ancestors are benevolent beings who love us. You are their legacy and they want the best for their progeny. Their own evolution in the Other World depends upon the completion of unfinished business or making amends for unkind acts or deeds that they may have committed during their lifetime." ~ Makhosi Baba P.H. Mtshali
Among your ancestors there is usually one or two chosen to look after your movements and then report back to the elders. Ancestors who have agreed to work with us may be grandparents or other deceased relatives, including ancient ancestors. This is your closest guardian who gives you warnings. Intuition, bodily sensations, a desire for certain foods, or resistance to certain invitations are some of the various ways that your ancestors may communicate with you.
According to the African perspective, the "ancestors" include your ancestral lineage and other compassionate helping spirits that protect and guide each of us. This can include the beings that we call Ascended Masters, the angelic realm, and the Star Nations. However your often-forgotten biological ancestors have great interest in working with you because the evolution of their lineage depends upon healing old wounds and inherited limiting beliefs.
If you have not built a relationship with your ancestors, they may not be certain of your willingness to work with them. Ancestors speak the language of intuition and symbols through the elements, memories, dreams, and metaphors. If you want them to be active in your life, all it takes is your intention and a little outward celebration in their honor.
