Native American Ritual

RE: Native American Ritual
This is so exciting! Talking to y'all has pushed me to do more research and I finally found out what I am! LOL! It sounds silly, but not knowing who you are or where you came from is frustrating. I talked with a psychic lady a while back who specializes in finding missing people. I asked her if she knew where my biological parents were (even though that is not exactly what she meant by "missing people"). She asked me about North Dakota. Again, being adopted I have no idea. But after reading more I wonder if she picked up on my French Indian heritage! Also, the website I was reading referred the to Ho Chunk interacting with the French... My boyfriend is Ho Chunk! What a coincidence, eh! Gotta go for tonight! I love you guys!

The woman who preformed it was my friends wife and she is descended from Cherokee blood and i guess the term would be Shaman. We stood in a circle and she did something called "smudging" and burned sage, prayed to the great spirits, uttered a few prayers. 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.

I had an unusual experience not long ago. I clearly heard someone or something repeat the word "Who" three times, like it was sitting just above my head, in my bedroom. I was already partially awake. there are no trees near my house, and nothing an owl could sit on. What, if anything does this signify? I don't believe in invisible owls, this had to be something else.

RE: Native American Ritual
Owls are highly reguarded in native american cultures. The meanings of the owls vary depending on the tribe. Some believe that the owls represent voices of the spirits, some believe it to be good luck in battle, some believe they are the bringers of death. Like a forwarining. As I said it is extremely varried and could mean many things, including the fact that one may have been perched on your roof and was just making noise. Smile
No worries. Smile

RE: Native American Ritual
I think the Raven is for intelligence. Kinda vague yes, i'll have to learn more about it. I'm irish/french. There's gotta be more to it though. I wanna research my family tree some more.

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

RE: Native American Ritual
why are some ppl so fascinated with Native American practices?
I'm Native American & I'm not. I'm full-blood too~
something must be broken...Blueoh
but I do honestly think that when we burn sage to keep the bad spirits away, it does work...once when we were younger & we lived in a trailer house in the country on my Rez, we knew that it was haunted & we got left there alone one day & we were terrified so we went out & gathered up some sage & burned it throughout the whole house & it just felt so much better after that. . .although that was probably just a mental thing since we were so young.
Either way, its kool if you're into that sorta stuff^^

Indians are the race closest to nature and, to me, that is beautiful. I know today things have changed and Indians today are not what they used to be (thanks to the white guys back in the day...) but I still hold them in the highest regard.
I thought about this thread when I went to your introduction...
