OK Surya.
I got THAT one! Maybe I DO know what to look for on glitches in my computer. But that does not explain where the OTHER e-mails got to...
Hmmm.

Reeeaallly.
Then I wonder who the swaggering man who had darker hair, was not TOO tall, and is stocky could have been... Kind, and gentle face, a 'touch of salt in his hair'...
Huh. He took a photo off the wall, looked at it closely, touched the FACE of the photo and then replaced it. Crooked. It was still crooked this morning...

Nope, no HOOKED UP washing machine nor dishwasher (thought I would just throw that one in there). The washing machine got dropped when moving in (yea, I guess I SHOULD have let "the men" move the heavier stuff), and we just never had the funds nor the time to replace it.
The dishwasher... Now THAT is a different story. It is ABLE to work, I just can not get it in my head that the jetting water and the splash of soap can actually clean my dishes as good as a hand and a towel or sponge (which I use only infrequently as for the bacterial growth). It is just not used.
OK. YOU are talking about oil in a skillet and dripping a few drops of water on it to make sure it is hot enough to make squaw bread, right? The water "dances" on the surface of the oil, essentially hydroplaning (Good Graces, I HOPE I get this soon!) THAT would make absolute sense too, as it would not be shoving energies OVER, or creating a riff, but TRYING to combine.
Make me think. Make me think.
Tell me what else to look for!
Thank you.

Perhaps not 'boiling'/seeping/oozing outright there in your yard. More of things being mixed up and not settling back evenly.

I'll use the 'hot oil' again.

It's like splashing a small amount of water into hot oil... All the mixing, splashing and popping have happened/are happening and there are places where you have 'bubbles/voids', call them what you will, that form because the two liquids do not/can not mix. It is a very active environment.

Alas I did not enter your home, I gathered information from the outside. I'm still not convinced that the water has a great deal to do with what is happening. It may only be there as a visible piece of the puzzle.

I have wanted to ask this from the very first time I read your post and all the comments,

Do you have a washing machine and if so where does it drain? I have a funny feeling if you do it never drained into the septic system and now that the ground has shaken... If you don't have one please feel free to throw something at me.

😆

Respectfully,

Rook

AND Rook,
A void.
Hmmm.
HOW does one GET a void?
I guess I am at a loss as when we do our protection rites and our cleansing, we are very thorough (save for leaving that door open).
Yes, ALL of these things have escalated since the earthquake. Both inside and outside of the home.
Thinking as I type here...
So, essentially, you are suggesting that perhaps when the quake happened, a chain of events were put into motion that created a "crack" that seems to have progressed to the point of this "hole" in my yard that was released into the...uh...atmosphere and oozed forth both physical AND invisible energies that have shown themselves in various forms.
In theory it was forced up THROUGH the earth (forgive this analogy, I am at a loss of better words) much like the "poison" in an abscessed tooth would try to force its way through the gum.
Hmmm.
I DID think the rolling fog COULD be...
But then with the added pond, I thought perhaps there was a "higher" connection as in cold weather, water seems to let fog sit on it. However, the FOG is the longest running manifestation that we have here at home. IT began in 2008 sometime...

GOT IT! NOW I am seeing how one "gets a void"!
With OUR energies that we are injecting INTO the energies that were already present and active, WE have created "holes" like when you inject a turkey with "special ingredients" before baking it. WE have caused a pinpoint in the atmosphere BY our protection rites and cleansing.
WE have caused this, just as much as the earthquake MAY have.
Wow, that was a pretty bright light bulb that just turned on. 😊

The five year old...
You ready for this?
HE is the "trusted reliable source" that initially told us that the land needed healing. He was not at all too sure how to go about it, but HE suggested calling in the Medicine Man. We already have an appointment WITH him, (for some of the physical things occurring within the home) and we were going to ADD this as one of the rites that we needed fixed. He also suggested going to the park (on a separate occasion, but I took it to mean he wanted to play).
Once again, I have been shown the err of my ways. I should pay less attention to what I KNOW, and listen a bit better to what I could LEARN.
Thank you!
Did you check out the house? And if so, where you surprised by who greeted you?

Hi Hobbyholly!
Yea, the quake hit HERE around five in the morning or so (maybe 530) and to tell you the truth, I remember sitting at the computer and looking out through our sliding door to see why "that train" was making more vibrations than what it feels like most the other trains do.
The only thing that gave me a hint that it WAS an earthquake (before it was actually televised) was that I noticed the streetlight was not blocked by the moving cars.
As far as I know, there were no permanent damages created by this quake. At least I never heard of any. How about THERE? How rough did it get for all of you?
Thank you.

Ok, thanks Osa.
I will try that out. Hopefully I GET a talker who does not mind "over explaining" things as sometimes I ask a question twice (or even three times) to make sure I got what the answerer is trying to say. Call it a glitch in my personality, but I have to KNOW what someone is talking about. 😊
Thanks for your help!

I sure did NOT, Tammy.
In fact, I am starting to feel like everyone dropped off the face of the earth as I have received no e-mails in the last two days... That is a record for me.
I think I am going to have to check out my server again. I must be blocking them somehow. KEEP trying! Please!

WB, Try the rangers, the old-time farmers. They are all salt-of-the-earth kind of people, probably your best bet, especially the old timers. They love to talk & really appreciate it when they know you are listening. They possess lots of info, sometimes they offer more than you asked. As you can see, I love old people. Best, Osa

Joining the comments here rather late...sorry

I have no idea what could be going on with your property. The black dot was clearly visible and I have no idea what that could be.

I think Illinois got the earthquake you're referring to (I however slept through it). Did it effect Indiana much?

Autumn,

Concerning the black 'dots' on the pictures... I would have thought I was looking at a Polaroid with a defect in the film. The 'dot' looks very solid and seems to have dimension as well as move and grow. It is a negative void with-in the picture and I think they have something to do with what's happening at/in your home.

Out on a Limb time:

All the negative things have escalated sense the earthquake. The pond forming is a physical manifestation of the fracture in the earth that has released loose energies. These energies, much like the pool, build up and 'express'/ 'crossover'/ 'infringe' whatever you want to call it, into the area around the fracture/rift/crack...call it what you will. The earth does indeed need to be healed. Your heritage knows way more about that than myself. In some cases, like the thumping on the roof, the energies are trying to mix with existing conditions and this causes a disruption. (think oil and water... Better yet (very) hot oil and water... What happens when you mix the two? I'm think of all the bubbling and splashing because they do not mix.)

Have you asked your 5 year old what he thinks is happening? He laughed about the crystals because they were just 'reflecting'/'channeling' the overall energies that are effecting your Home at this time. Just as they can be cleared so can your Home/Property.

The 'fog' on your porch, you know the answer to that one, harmless. Loved one showing oneself, still looking out for the Family.

Climbs back to the tree trunk: I have no idea if I'm right. This is what I 'felt' as I poked about. I'm not sure how/what you focus your protection rites on but all this loose energy is there and in some cases forming 'voids' (the black dots in your pictures) or not mixing well with your Families existing energies. Not negative energies, not 'evil' things out to get you. Just incompatible things/energies trying to mix.

I hope this helps, I hope I am right and I wish you and yours the BEST. You and yours are in my Thoughts and Prayers.

Respectfully,

Rook

It's obvious I'm not receiving yours as you're not receiving mine 😢
whitebuffalo (guest)
 
9 years ago (2009-04-08)
Yep, me too on the orb pictures, Rook. There are so many things they COULD be, that (to me) they are just not taken into account AS a visit. The reason I included THIS "series" is because of what YOU pointed out. It seems to grow, and streak down the windshield. Unfortunately, I do not have any kind of photo software on this computer (save for what it came with) so I am unable to dissect it and take it section by section to SEE what it may be. THIS is NOT the only series of photographs to have that same "dot" (or a very similar one) in it, but it was most clear in these shots.
I got to thinking (and I hope I did not do this to you) about our daily/nightly protection rites. We skipped one door (you will know what I mean).
Yes, the earthquake (I know, that looks so weird to write as I am now living in Indiana) happened ABOUT five months ago, and this pond started just about three months ago. So there could be something with that connection. I just have to figure out which "expert" I need to talk to. It is discouraging to loose your backyard to a pond that is not even stocked with edible fish.
How did we do?
Thank you.

Hello Osa,
Maybe that is why I tried to "sneak a smoke" and got busted!
Would you happen to know if a park ranger, (as I live so close TO the park, maybe the RANGER would know something?) or another employee OF the park has the same training (who may be present) and know the same things as a graduate of an Ag & Tech School would? I am planning on stopping over at the park and finding out what I CAN, but am unsure if I could get the expertise needed on location.
OR, would a lifetime farmer know just as much? I am in contact with MANY life time farmers (many of them are in their 80's, though and MAY have forgotten as much as I need to know) in my line of work, but I do not want to take the chance of making someone feel stupid.
I may just have to investigate to see WHO I can ask...
Thank you again!

I'm sorry for all the problems you are having. I had been unaware how much pressure you are all under. I hope the best for you. In the meantime your pond problem might be remedied with the help from a nearby Ag & Tech School or even a local university. Perhaps you could call & see if they could be of assistance. They would most likely have knowledge of the ground soils, runoff, drainage, etc., and if they have some kind of forestry program maybe they could tell you the signs to look for in the tree, see if maybe the roots are being undermined. I just thought of something, perhaps the energy of the water is encouraging the escalation of these paranormal events. (That's probably what you have been thinking all along.) Wish you the best.

Autumn,

I do not put much into 'orb' pictures, there are just way to many things that could cause an effect like that. Your 'dots' however do not appear to have anything in common with 'orbs'. They look very solid and I would have thought it was something right on the camera lens but your angle shifts very little between photos and the 'dot' moves quite far and changes shape. It is one of those things that make me go hummmm? I love thing s that make me think.

A small earthquake may have created some sort of fault in the ground that allows water to flow from a point above your yard to that point in your yard before it spills 'above ground' but was this happening before the quake?

Thank you for your permission, I shall do my best to leave things as they are, or perhaps strenghten any protections/wards you may have in place. I shall do my best to go unnoticed, but I got cought once before huh? (lol 😉)

Respectfully,

Rook

I tell you what, Surya.
FIRST, when it turned red, I got scared. I thought for sure that was a sign of something REALLY bad. I was getting ready to pack it all in and leave for MUCH longer than what we took off for in the morning.
THEN when it turned pitch... Oh my word. I grabbed my little guy and said "If this gets ugly, get your sissy out" and he LAUGHED at me! LAUGHED.
Now, he does not know a THING about crystals (I think 😊), but just his laughing at me made me go on. I have learned to trust him, even if what he says at times really does not seem to make sense!
I have not yet got that e-mail from you from this morning, nor from Tammy. Huh. Maybe I need to clean out the computer too.
Thank you.

Hi Rook!
Yeaaaa, I could not bring myself to type the word "orb", so I had to use the word "dot". Yes, the pictures WERE taken with a digital camera, and just seconds apart. I have the habit of snapping off a few at a time to prevent photo "oops". That way we are not saying "dang, I should have..."
I just asked Race (should have done that in the FIRST place) and HE says that we are mainly sand. All of the "rest" is what I have added. Anything in the "layers" is too far down to be considered as OUR soil (I am assuming you will know what the hey he is talking about) But, as far as one can dig, it is sand. I appreciate you breaking down that question for me. 😊 Sometimes I need a little extra nudge to get going in the right direction!
The nearest farm farm is just about ten... Fifteen miles. On the one end we have the city, and on the other shopping centers "outside malls" or strip malls, whichever is the correct term for your area, and the OTHER direction is country roads to WAY out where the farms are.
BUT something that someone just reminded me of (I do not know how I forgot this) just about five months ago we did have a "mild" earthquake that actually was felt pretty strong around here (I think it was about five on the scale, could be wrong about that). Could THAT have caused a crack horizontally in the earth, but underground to BRING us the pond? We DO live alongside a railroad track. That COULD cause more of a vibration if it were needed.
Sure, Rook, I would be honored to have you investigate further.
I initially thought the INside and the OUTside were two separate situations, but then got to thinking MAYBE they were. I am not at all too sure whether they are or not.
We have cleansed the house. Forgive me for sounding like a rookie (oooooh, sorry about THAT pun), but WHERE do the energies go that you cleanse from the area when you cleanse a house? I never really thought of THAT, either until today.
Uh, anyway... I forgive you, in advance 😉 Be safe.
Thank you.

I am most pleased that everyone is safe and doing well. Now, on with the matters at hand.

I am willing to bet that your eye exams will turn out normal for all involved, your pictures of the race car show a positive movment and growth of a black 'dot'. (These pics are from a digital camera correct? How much time between pictures?)

It seems the rest of the happenings very well could be connected, from the crystal being 'dark' to all the... How did you sum it up... "Attitude problems, sleeplessness (of the five year old whose room is directly across from the area in question), crankiness, total out-of-character actions (to keep it "light" as my family hangs out here too- the police WERE involved) massive headaches (of more than ONE member of the family) a backsliding in HEALING (for the little one who had surgery on Jan. 8), distrust, "seeing" things (little black masses- we are in the process of getting eye exams) and drowsiness"

I can not put my finger on it just yet but may I have your permission to 'investigate' further, my way? (I believe you know what I'm asking here.) My apologies in advance if you say yes and it goes noticed.

The water thing, your pond as you call it... I do not get the feeling this is connected. It would take a massive amount of energy to make something like that happen and unless you live directly under power lines or right beside a power transfer station I just don't see the energy being readily availible to cause that much water to manifest. You may be higher than the park, but are you lower than any possible sources of water?

What I mean by soil is this, top soil can be a mixture of things from sand to anything that's been added to help plants grow, the deeper one goes this changes, top soil changes to sand, clay or rock (bedrock). Depending on where a water source may be and the 'path of least resistance' the water may be draining from a source 'uphill' from your yard and due to clay, rock or 'path of least resistance' emerging in your yard and forming the pond. (Any farmland with 'water tanks'/irrigation happening near you?) I don't know if that explination helps, I hope it does. The damp ground is of concern for the poor tree and it's roots. Just like house plants to much water is a bad thing.

You and yours are in my prayers and I wish you Health and Happniess.

Respectfully,

Rook

Interesting...
I have not received an e-mail from EITHER of you this morning...
What the hey?

Yes, kindred spirit, Tammy. Your pictures helped out a GREAT deal. In the next city (what I took the numbers to be) there is ONE county road that fit the FULL description (heavy vegetation and a ditch with standing water, right next to a sign giving the cities name. Partially obscured... How many more "hints" could I get?! 😊) Still do not know HOW or WHY they slid... But Dad was pinned, and Chelsie went for help and was found kneeling beside a tree PRAYING for someone to come along...
EVERYTHING...
Right?
Simply amazing, and THAT does not happen too often TO ME.

And my lovely Surya.
Yep. I now have in my possession a perfectly clear crystal (I really did not think I could BE that "dark"!).
With all of your help on BOTH counts, I am hoping things get back to normal emotionally around here REAL quick!

With BOTH of your helps, there are a few more relieved, and happy people in this area. Thank you both from the bottom of my being. Just goes to prove that the "Power of Three" does not just belong to certain groups, does it not?
Thank you!

whitebuffalo (guest)
 
9 years ago (2009-04-07)
SAY, I forgot to mention something rather important (maybe).
Yesterday morning my son and I were wandering around the house, leaning into this room and that, whispering to one another and trying to locate the origin of loud BANGS on the roof. It sounded as if someone were throwing bricks there. At one point, they were happening rather frequently and about five minutes apart. At other times, just about half an hour.
It got so bad that my son and I got out of there and regrouped at the local grocery up the road.
When we returned, the bangs were still going on, so we gathered the materials needed for a house cleansing, but one of my favorite "tools" was missing (it normally hangs on my bedroom wall, closest to MY side of the bed) so I had to proceed with the next best thing.
In the "middle" of the cleansing the children (a sixteen year old and a five year old) began arguing about anything they could. I was frustrated (the kids, my tool, this dang noise...) At the end, my tool was found in an illogical place, and the noises had stopped.
COULD that be connected? Or am I YANKING at straws?
Thank you all.
whitebuffalo (guest)
 
9 years ago (2009-04-07)
Whew, Tammy, I tell you! That cleansing last night was intense!
Started out with not knowing were my favorite tools were, progressed to fevered emotions and ended up FINDING my tools, and a silent roof.
Go figure. Maybe Rook is right, MAYBE they are all intertwined and I am just looking at them as separate situations...

Oh, Chelsie? Automobile. Ditch. Dad and Chelsie are doing well. Now.
THANK YOU. You ARE honored.

Great Caesar's Ghost, Osa.
I HOPE not. We have moved so much here lately (my life partner is still in the "nomad" phase of his heritage, I think 😆).
How would I check FOR root rot, do you know? I really never thought of the ramifications of this tree sitting in all of that water until I read it in your comment. But that would make absolute sense as it occurs in the plants in the house that my little guy "helps" me with.
As for it being paranormal... <shrug> if it IS, then the ancestors need to give me a few more tips or send someone my way who can help me battle THIS one. I am not used to the PURELY physical side of this coin! But if it isn't, I sure could use all the help I can get, too!
Thank you.

9 years ago (2009-04-07)
HI Rook! I miss you all OVER the Internet!

I will try to answer you as thoroughly as possible...

1. Absolutely. That is the direction that it runs. When it is at it's fullest, the red car and the lawn furniture are sitting in the "pond".
2. The trunk IS wet, it HAD been sprinkling on the morning of THIS photo shoot, BUT it CAN be a dry, warm day, and it still springs forth. But YES, this day it WAS sprinkling, and had stopped about an hour before I stepped out there.
3. Uh... What kind of soil? It is NOT rich, it is a combination of sand and the mixture of compost that I mixed in trying to make the soil "healthy". I think I need a more pointed question, if you do not mind.

It is NOT. Our LAND stands on higher ground than that of this swamp-ish land. It is not a permanent swamp land over in the park, but this time of year it seems to be saturated (that is why I put in here that when we dug the hole, there was no standing water IN that hole). The park's border is not but a quarter of a mile away from our property line, but the land that is swampy is about ten miles away (though I have never measured the distance, so this COULD be off).

The other things in the house are the "knocking presence" (in my "I tried to be sneaky". That does NOT seem to be harmful) Attitude problems, sleeplessness (of the five year old whose room is directly across from the area in question), crankiness, total out-of-character actions (to keep it "light" as my family hangs out here too- the police WERE involved) massive headaches (of more than ONE member of the family) a backsliding in HEALING (for the little one who had surgery on Jan. 8), distrust, "seeing" things (little black masses- we are in the process of getting eye exams) and drowsiness.
Kind of lump summed it there, but I will be happy to elaborate if needed 😊.
Keep the questions coming, I do not mind. I am at a total loss here.
Thank you!
Thanks for stopping by!

Autumn, good morning! I don't know which you will read first:e-mail or comment section so I decided to drop a couple of lines.

I hope you understand why I decided to stay away from the comment section-that is, some of the details and the events were a little too intense and I was worried about how all this would be treated by certain members. I was far too concerned about the latest developments to deal with any type of "attack" so...

I hope your cleansing has given you and the family some peace finally-God knows how much you need it!

Although some of the problems you mention in the story could be explained away or one could at least try to rationalize them, there are a number of events that have not been told (for a good reason) and it is the accummulation and severity of these events that makes it clear to me that what you're dealing with goes far beyond the scientific.

I just hope my friend that after last night's events, peace has once again been restored.

My prayers will be with you all the way!

Aw Fiddle-sticks. My reply just got deleted. (In my eyes that doesn't bode well.) Sorry WB, my major concern would be root-rot. In the event of high winds they could cause the tree to fall on your house depending on the wind direction. I don't live in the same geographical area but during times of high winds following intense rains, the results are tragic. Please try & shore up your tree in the meantime. I hope that this is not paranormal but in the event that it is, it might be time to consider moving again. Best of luck to you & your family. Osa

Autumn,

Greetings and well met. A couple of questions if I may...

1) It appears as if the water is 'running' from it's point of origin at the left of the picture and moving to the right. Is this correct?

2) The trunk of the tree looks wet, as if it were raining. Am I seeing things?

3) You mentioned a crawl space that remains dry during these 'events' what kind of soil is the yard comprised (sp) of?

You mention 'swampy' grounds in the county park. Do you know if this spot in your yard is as low or possibly lower than that area in the county park? How far away from the park are you? I ask because if the soil has an area that is comprised of more clay then any water 'draining' toward your house would be 'forced' up and out if it 'ran into' less permiable soil. (like clay)

I am just a layman when it comes to soil compasition (sp) however and offer only my thoughts on this matter.

As for the other things in and around your house I humbely ask for more details or at least directions to all the stories that have any bearing in this matter. Thanks.

Respectfully,

Rook

An interesting note to anyone who might be lurking here and not commenting.
Yesterday we had a snow falling. That is really not odd, we get snow as far into the season as July.
BUT, the area that the "out spout" is in would appear to be WARMER than the rest of the yard. The snow in that area is already melting, whereas in the rest of the yard it is still two inches thick.

This MAY NOT be paranormal in nature. I am not saying that it definitely is, I just need to know what to look for in finding out what STARTED this. We have been here since 2007 and NEVER had a pond before. I need to get rid of it.
Anyone work with agriculture that could give me some pointers? Things to look for? Ways to "fill in" a water source that we can not seem to see the start of?
I seriously need assistance with this. Please... Anyone.

Let me explain my landscaping, as SOME of these plant energies that are mentioned would clash with what I have. I planted all of the landscaping myself, under the guidelines of our Way.
We have lilac bushes surrounding the house (two deep purple, one "lilac", one white and four purple). One on each of the four corners, and then four extras "in between" the two "front sides" [the actual front of the house (though directionally it is unclean to use the front door AS a front door, so the sliding door, and the "back door" is our front door) and the side of the house that faces the OTHER road. We live on a corner lot]. I have morning glories along a straight line in the actual front of the house, three sweetheart rose bushes (one pink, one red, and one yellow), one evergreen tree, one holly bush (it has not made it to the size of a tree yet) and one white oleander (it is not doing too well). I have six honesty plants (silver dollar plants) in between all of the others.
The lilac bushes have been blamed for the things that have happened IN the house. As lilac is said to be the scent of the Spirits, and a "calling card" for them to visit. When planting them, we sang them into the soil, and honored them with the gift of pennies (to keep away slugs and other "nasties") to help in lessening the "neon sign" that they are supposed to possess.
Scrub bushes litter the outline of the yard (we did not plant them) along the privacy fence, but we keep them trimmed back. There are three full grown Maple trees in the yard (one of them is in two of the photo's up there).
I think I covered all of them.
Thank you!

Pink and White Magnolia is the equivalent to the White Magnolia flower essence that fills a similar role in the essences that
Are used for human healing work.

Pink and White Magnolia flower essence - bring together all of the Feng Shui elements A flower essence.

The various varieties of magnolia have a very special role in the New Millennium Essences, with the White Magnolia filling an especially key role as the "linkage" essence for mixtures of essences for human (and animal) healing, and I had known that a similar essence was needed for Feng Shui work.

Affirmation:

"I call upon the energy of these flowers to heal this land."

If this is not possible then try lavender for Balancing and aligning all aspects of the "spirit" of the land. Restoring to a state of harmony and inherent balance, and bringing into balance on all levels, the "flavor" of the land... That aspect of the land that makes this particular piece of land unique.

Bermuda Buttercup - for balancing the energetic legacy of there having been people on the land. This energy from the people who have been here in the past is part of the "character" of the land, and this essence helps bring these energies into a state of balance and harmony.

Pyrethrum - Balancing the energy of the atmosphere. The air that is above the land, all the way from ground level to the edge of space, has an important energetic effect on the totality of the energy balance of the land.

Blackberry - Balancing the energy of the Earth's magnetic field within the land, bringing this magnetic energy into a state of balance in its relationship with other energies within the land, and with any buildings, etc, that may be on the land.

Bur Medick, balancing the meridians of the land. Click to see details. Bur Medick
Balancing the energy of the land's meridians. Just as people have energy channels, called meridians, in their bodies, so does the land. And, just as a person will manifest symptoms of sickness if their meridians are out of balance, so will the land.

Pink Trumpet, balancing the energy of the ley lines. Pink Trumpet Flower Balancing the energy of the ley lines in the land. The land has energy lines running through it, some of which run long distances. These ley lines often follow natural features like hilltops.

Tenacity Essence, balancing the energetic interaction with the plants and animals. Click to see details. Tenacity Essence
Balancing the energetic interaction of the land with the plants and animals that are on the land. Everything is connected energetically, and sometimes when humans place animals and plants that are not native to the area on a piece of land, this can result in an out-of-harmony energetic state for all concerned.

White as Snow Balancing the energy of underground water.

Alot of ways to do, it, take you pick. There are stones as well which are as follows:-Quartz and Granite
Healing the trauma that the land has suffered, from all causes. In a similar way that people carry the energetic legacy of past trauma in their bodies (eg. As cellular memory), the land also carries a similar trauma. This essence, being made from a piece of solid rock that comes from the land, has a special affinity with the land.

We had a beautiful lawn (in parts) of that spot where the pond comes from. An interesting note: We have a crawl space basement UNDER the house, about five foot away from where the pond seems to have it's border. We have crawled under the house to check it out for moisture (after all, there is a "surprise" pond out there, I would ASSUME some of that water SHOULD "leak" through the soil and make it down INTO that crawl space. It is dry.) I THINK nothing grows there because the pond began about three months ago, at the start of our growing season.
I am WANTING to say that as the county park has a type of swamp land right now (only because of the melting snows and the rain season being here) that SOMEHOW (though I do not know how) that has caused this occurrence. I WANT to believe that the vibrations from the trains [and possibly the high traveled Old Lincoln Highway's (1913 route) traffic] that go through in conjunction WITH that swampland created this "natural pond", but I can find no documentation that could support this thought process.
You know me, I need the facts.
We HAVE dug around the circumference of the "out spout" and found nothing (save for a few roots) but soil. We went down approximately six foot (the landlord even tried HIS hand at it on a separate occasion as US, just to be sure) and there was no... I am not sure what the correct phrase is, but there was not a POND in that hole. Just wet soil. It was not saturated enough to make a "well".

So, are you suggesting that I should plant a pink or white magnolia tree out there? And if that IS your suggestion, how far away from the standing tree would you suggest that it be planted? AND is one more effective as the other, or do they have similar properties and "plant power"?
All in perfect balance, you know.

What about playing in that area? COULD it effect our humanity balance in some way? Like I mentioned, this is the area of the yard that ALL our play time is spent. It is a "haven" of sorts as it is squared in, and I can watch everything happening through that door. The little guy has freedom through that doorway.
I appreciate the honest attempt at assistance, Surya. Please do not leave me now 😊.
With honor.

Hello my friend, I have read your story and when you mentioned pond, the first thing that came to mind was there maybe something with the tree, healing of the land, my first and utmost response would be to clear/clean the space, I have noticed nothing grows in that particular spot, I had this with my garden, you know about my garden.

Try this, it has so far worked for me flower essences for assisting in the cleansing, healing, balancing and energetic enhancement of the chi energy of the land

Could be said to be "the glue" that holds all of the various energies together, that are supplied by all of the other flower essences. Also acts as a catalyst, to facilitate and enhance the action of all of the essences, and to ensure that all of the essences
Work together in harmony and balance.

Restoring the land to a healthy condition. Includes the harmonising of the "as above so below", the connection between earth and sky, the effect of buildings on the land, the anchoring of the heart energy, and the grounding deeply into Mother Earth.
