always get holy water from Pala Mission Church, and keep it in my home.
Sea shells are a good thing to put in your yard out here. They show friendship to the Indian spirits who pass by at night, and they will not bother you. There are no curses here, just an old well loved place. Any evil doers are run off or handled by the spirits. They love this area as much as we do. Happy Spirits make good neighbors.

I grew up in a large house directly across from Kit Carson Park. It was incredibly haunted. My eldest sister seemed to have the most experiences, at age fourteen, though my mother and I were prone to them as well. The entire family reported hearing footsteps in the upstairs hallway at night and hearing girls laughing in the downstairs den. My sister had the darkest room in the house, and my mom and I often heard the bed squeaking when she was off at school, accompanied by children's laughter. It sounded like children were jumping on the bed. When my sister would get home, the bed would be rumpled.
My sister also spoke of feeling someone touching her legs and yanking at her blankets late at night, but the activity would cease if she made noises indicating she was awake. Lights would turn on and off often, even after we got our electricity checked. The phone would ring, (often around 6:00 pm) and no one would be on the other line. I remember being about three years old, and sometimes having televisions turn on sporadically when I entered a room, making me think I had superpowers.
Things fell often, and the things that would fall would be weird. My teddy bear often fell; my mother's collection of ceramic angels would fall (but not break,) and on one especially strange evening my dad's copy of ''We Never Die'' fell off the nightstand several times without provocation.
There was one incident that the entire family witnessed. Some extended family was present; a minimum of fourteen people were seated around the dining room table sharing a meal. It was just past dark. My mother favored the seat at the end of the table, which happened to be the only seat that has view of the main entrance and hallway. While eating, our incredibly heavy wooden doors creaked open. Those of us at the end of the table saw the porch light spill from outside in. The door closed again. Then heavy boot steps walked from the front door to our dining room. This was so nonchalant at the time that it seemed normal, but everyone was a little uneasy because the entire family was already present at the meal.
