No one ever wants to lead a life full of distress, but a happy and problem free life. One of the most common types of spiritual problems preventing us from leading a blissful life are problems caused by our departed ancestors.
Spiritual research indicates 80% problems in life are such whose root cause is difficult to be identified.
People also worship ancestors at many places. BUT can departed ancestors intercede for us with God or deities?
This is rarely the case. In some cases a subtle body in the region of Heaven or the Nether region (Bhuvaloka) can intercede on behalf of their ancestors with lower level deities in the region of Heaven. This happens by exchanging some merits they have earned to get something on Earth. However lower level deities also have limited amount of power and can only help out in smaller things. In most cases lower level deities expect something in return for the favours they give out. If someone has done a lot of spiritual practice then can also ask for boons from Higher level deities. However in this their spiritual practice is used up.
If neglected or not worshiped can ancestors cause us problems?
From a spiritual perspective neglected means not doing the requisite rituals or spiritual practice to help ancestors in the afterlife. If the correct rituals are not done departed ancestors can trouble their descendents.
These are some very basic things about ancestors. If any one would like to explain more details, it will be of great help to many in distress.
I have a pretty good handle on the spiritual realms, too. From my perspective, one of the biggest problems is that too many people focus on communicating with the dead. The disembodied souls need to move on to higher realms by our prayers for them to do so.
We must pray to the angels and God's helpers in the higher realms to find and raise up the souls lost or stuck in the lower realms...leave it up to God and God's helpers to help the dead, not human superstition and the worship of the dead, that keeps them and us bound to the earth realms.
I think we are saying some similar things...but not all.
a short, but I hope, clear point
I appreciate your sincere reply. Definitely we have similar things to say. But dear friend, a website on spiritual research says what i have tried to compile and they have many case studies for this too..
I agree with what you said.. we must pray for the departed so that they can move ahead. But dear friend, not all can have a capacity to think so and more to do so. Hence, such are the ones whose departed ancestors are in distress and want them to do something for them...
What do you think about this..
This is untrue.
We do not need to pray for the departed so they can move ahead. Life is for the living, and I do not agree with making money from this in this fashion.You are merely preying (sic) on people's ignorance and superstitions.
I have flagged your hubs as duplicate content.
you have all right to flag anyones hub u feel.. and i wont react to it.
But for your information, this money business might be done by others who are hungry for it. I am a voluntary homoeopath and have experienced good results with what i have written and hence wanted to share. I DONT CHARGE FOR MY SPIRITUAL CONSULTATIONS.
with due regards,
My response is as I said previously, to teach those alive to pray to God and God's Helpers of highest Light to help those dead ancestors move into higher realms.

This is what you people that are so ready to spew biblical reasoning don't understand about those of us that are somewhat taken aback by your zeal. We think you are slaves that try to justify your slavery by...
