Lets talk about Pouring Libations which is part of our ancestral heritage. Nipseys mom did this at the services to honor all their ancestors that have came before them. 
HOW TO POUR LIBATIONS:

2. Cup Of Water or Spirits
3. Call on the family members/leaders/ancestors/orishas by name.
4. Say ASE after each name- Ase is generally defined as "the power to make things happen" 
5. Send a prayer, request or affirmation while doing so focus your energy and connect yourself to the other realm as a means to communicate and remember who we are and never forget!
* You can honor your ancestors everyday by pouring libations.
