I clean my kitchen about three times a day.  It’s not a deep clean, mind you.  It’s just clearing and cleaning dishes, wiping up, etc.  When I finish cleaning, I light a candle on my kitchen table to bid welcome the spirits of my ancestors to my home and ask for their blessings and wisdom as we go through our day.  I sometimes leave a little a few offerings as well.

It’s a nice way to remember those who have crossed over and keep them close to me throughout the day.
