Why we love ✨
Ancestor Money has many names. Joss Paper, Hell Notes, Heaven Notes, Spirit Money, Ghost Money, etc. The use of Ancestor Money goes back to African and Chinese traditions of burning as an offering to our ancestors. Some believe that our ancestors need money on the other side and this is our way of caring for our ancestors. Others use these as payment to the ancestors for their assistance here in the human realm.
To use, write your name and intention on the note. Then, if you are asking for something to be brought into your life (such a wealth, love, etc.) fold the paper towards you to symbolize the bringing in of their magic. And if you are asking to be rid of something, fold it away from you. Then burn the note at your altar as a part of your ritual. Please observe fire safety when burning these.
You can also display these on your the altar, without burning.
