She did it tonight due to the full moon. there were drums, a flute it was great. and i heard a startling revalation, my spirit guardian or whatever, is a Raven, hence the pic change. Neat. she said something about having 9 from the day you were born: 2 that follow you always, and 7 that change depending on how you need them.
Really, how interesting, is there anymore you can find out about this? How do they find out what your spirit guardian is?

im not sure how to describe it. She's really in tune with the spirit world so i guess she can see it? This wasn't the first time i had heard it, she merely confirmed it. I didn't even ask if my animal was a raven, i asked what my animal was after pointing out one of my other friends was a wolf. She looked at me for a sec and then said Raven.

When i wake up everything will be all right...

RE: Native American Ritual
Smile yes there were many different tribes bordering the original Mohawk territories. Such as the Laurentians to the north, the Delaware to the south, the Oneida to the west and the Abenaki and Mohican's to the east. As well as many others such as the Onondaga, west next to the Oneida, Seneca, Erie and so on.
Thank you for your reply Smile
Ellie.

RE: Native American Ritual
Ellie....I have already been interested in Indians. Can you please tell me about the mounds?

My great grandmother always said we were part Cherokee.

RE: Native American Ritual
Warrior,
What I know of "mounds" is little but I hope helpful. Some cultures used mounds as burial sites while others, older cultures have used them as temples for worshiping the "Great Sun". They have been tops of homes dug under the earth, They have been around in some form or another for centuries. Different to the areas of tribes and cultural beliefs. Smile

RE: Native American Ritual
Thanks....my sister has been traveling around and attending ceremonies various mounds...including a serpent mound in Ohio. I wrote about it in the crystal skull thread.

Do all Indians practice Shamanism?
