Did you know that you can use Crystals to connect with your Ancestors? Learn how to access ancestral knowledge, wisdom and abilities through the power of crystals.
Who Were Your Ancestors?
Maybe you know a bit about your recent ancestors, your grandparents and great grandparents. We are lucky that we now live in a time when the secrets of our ancient Ancestors can now be revealed. I had a DNA Ancestry test done earlier in the year and would highly recommend doing it. If you think you know all about your Ancestors or family tree, then think again.
I am Italian on both sides of my family with no records of anything to indicate anything else. The test I took goes back up to 1000 years and I was surprised to find I was not only 5% Scandinavian (Viking) but that I had British and Irish ancestors too. You just do not know what you will find…
Why Connect With Your Ancestors?
Interest in our ancestry and Ancestors seems to be growing and for some it may be a part of their spiritual practice such as Shamanism or other Earth based traditions. Like past lives our Ancestors can be the source of our spiritual or psychic abilities. By acknowledging our Ancestors and exploring their beliefs and traditions it can trigger things within us. If this is something that interests you then I have some crystals that could help.
Working With Local & Traditional Crystals
One of the ways you can select stones is doing a bit of research. If you know what Country or area your Ancestors came from then you should be able to find out what crystals or minerals are mined there.
“Stones from the land of your Ancestors are going to connect you with that place and time.”
Most ancient cultures around the world have used crystals and worn gemstones in some way. Find out which stones your ancestors valued or had beliefs about. Don’t dismiss crystals just because it is something your Grandmother would have worn. You may be discounting a valuable crystal that has a strong affinity with your blood and ancestry. You may have been given one of these stones by a relative or passed down as a family heirloom that sits in a box somewhere.
How To Connect With Your Ancestors with Crystals
It is best to focus on one ancestral line with crystals to connect with your Ancestors. Take some time to sit and meditate with your chosen crystal. If possible have some traditional/cultural music playing that makes you think of your Ancestors. Youtube is a good place for this, just search the culture plus music, looking for the traditional not modern styles. Like Celtic Music, Traditional Nigerian Music or Native American Chants for example.
Visualise a bubble of violet light surrounding you and protecting you. Think of the Country, culture and people who were your Ancestors. Just allow whatever comes to you and record anything you feel is important in a journal. You may get a message.
You can use your crystal in any way you choose such as wearing it or carrying in on you. If you have an Altar, you may want to include this stone in your sacred space.
5 Crystals To Connect With Your Ancestors:
As well as choosing crystals by their location or cultural significance you can also work with any of the following crystals to connect with your Ancestors. These crystals will help you tap into your ancestral line, awaken abilities and or clear any negative ancestral energies.
Petrified Wood is the remains of ancient trees which have been fossilised and mineralised over time turning them into crystal. This is an excellent stone to use to connect with your ancient ancestors and their wisdom. You can use it to represent your family tree on an Altar.
Those Crystal Skulls which look like human skulls are also amazing tools to represent our ancestry and connect with our Ancestors. For more info on how to select one please see my article How To Choose A Crystal Skull.
This black and white stone sometimes has flower like patterns inside it. Chrysanthemum Stone connects us with our family tree, accessing this knowledge and awakening our spiritual abilities. It also clears negative ancestral patterns.
This is a rare feature of some natural Crystal Points like Quartz. It looks like the point has had a section cut out creating a lower step. These crystals clear the ancestral line and activate your ancestral abilities and knowledge.
Bloodstone with its green and red colours taps you into your own bloodline and ancestral lineage. Work with Bloodstone to bring forward ancient memories and connect you with your Ancestors.

I am proud to be part of the Penobscot Native American Tribe, from northern ME, also Canada, but alot of the information I find isn’t complete, or in depth. I have a burning desire to learn more, because my Great Grandfather left the tribe in search for a better job for his family, which is where he met my Great Grandmother. I spent so much learning from them growing up. I would love to know what types of crystals to use.
If there is any way try to speak to family or visit these places to see what stones they worked with. Otherwise look into the stones that are mined in these local or surrounding areas. You can also go more general and work with stones used by other tribes or that carry Native American energy. Such as Turquoise, Apache Tear, Owyhee Blue Opal, Black Obsidian, Shaman Stones and Boji Stones.
Wow what a wonderful article, so insightful.
I am currently using Agate Territella as a Chanel to access the ancestors.
I leave the gemstones in Moringa& Baoabab oil on the night of the full moon. The vibrational frequency empregnates the oil which is then used for wholistic massage.
I work in Elmina, Ghana where many of my clients are then able to access the beliefs & traditions of their ancestors. The Ghana gemstone massage often triggers things, thoughts & emotions within them during and most often after treatment.
I also run specialised workshops exploring the African esoteric knowledge before the arrival of the European belief systems.
So glad you enjoyed the article Sankara. Sounds like you are doing amazing work
Thanks for the positive feedback, I am also working with African Jade, Amethyst, Lapis Lazuli, Moonstone & Rose Quartz with excellent results. Blessed
The Survival Crystal is a spiritual stone deeply rooted in Mother Earth, our ancestral homeland & our personal connection to our ancestors.
The 50 million year old life contained within its form bestows this stone with exceptional power & strength.
One of my favorite stones is Atlantisite; it’s associated with ancient civilizations. It could be useful depending on how far you’re reaching back in your roots.
