Native American Burial Grounds

Anyway, my ex wasn't being cleansed for anything specific. I hear its rather a common ritual. She could not have been less N.A. or knowledgeable about such things - A jewish girl from Manhattan who was dating me, a British immigrant who's lived mostly in L.A. and Philadelphia. She told me she just forgot to throw the herbs into the fire, and I can't argue with that... I wasn't there. But theres no doubt that it wasn't very cool, and she wasn't invited to anything else after that.
But if nothing else, it taught me respect, and I try to communicate that respect to anyone who brings up the topic. To be honest, I thought it was all mumbo-jumbo before that happened, but I know better now. It was the most clear and consistent encounter I've had or have heard about. Everyone who spent a few minutes alone somewhere in the apartment during that time ran into it... there was absolutly no argument as to what it was. I wish I would have brought some non-believers or friends up there to hear it, but I didn't really look at it as being a zoo exhibit .

The part of the field has been animal less since the early 60's can't say for sure before that as my grandparents didn't move out there till '52 and my family is more likely to work then socialize. There may be a great deal to do with a point by Owl Goddess there are old oil tanks on a lot that runs in front of where the properties meet so maybe some sort of sepeage from there but my grandfather is downhill with a creek running through his property that begins at a pond on the "tank farm". Not sure about crop-wise this is becoming a developed area and very few people still actually farm it, only two or three families currently out the ridge which runs quite a few miles.

At the risk of sounding unfair to your ex, I thought maybe it was a matter of thinking "These poor rustic savages are so superstitious, I'LL show them that nothing will happen if the herbs don't go into the fire." Hopefully she learned something from that, if nothing else, respect. I'm not at all surprised she didn't get another invite to participate in a ritual.
You know, its intriguing, as far as trying to convert a skeptic, there are some who-no matter what kind of evidence you provide can rationalize it as something mundane.
Hi, Masque, that may be it, but only one way to determine it for certain if its the oil/chemicals? Had he noticed anything else? Were the crops at all effected?

property*but would they have given clearance for an Archealogical dig, if it was?
I've been lucky so far in my dealing with older sites, so I make it a point of both explaining why I'm there, what the camera and recorder are for and asking permission to take pics or record them, but the idea of using turquoise or another native charm's a good one*LOL*My older sister's gotten better with her dealing with spirits etiquette<in other words she's not stepping on stones to prove she's not afraid of death any more>but I may have to have her stay in the van, at least at first

The same thing I look for on other investigations, just to deepen my understanding of the soul's journey and; if possible, to aid those who linger to Passing into Light
