Consider creating this altar as a way to honor your ancestors and other departed souls who are dear to you. You might place photos of the deceased on your altar, but most of the space should be occupied by things that these precious souls enjoyed during life. You can include their favorite foods, favorite flowers, favorite candies, favorite colors, statues of favorite animals, or anything else you feel the departed spirit might enjoy. Take some time to enjoy each of these items as you think about the positive aspects of the person’s life and its impact. Express your thanks and share your joy with the spirits who have gathered at your altar.
