Tuesdays-Thursdays in my study. Tea and black coffee. Conducting intensive research with the new Spirit Questors for a client who needs the appropriate magical symbols, rituals, and spells for treasure hunting.

In the Philippines, hunters believe that buried treasure is guarded by elementals. Once the hunters get close to the treasure, the elementals wreak havoc and cause the hunters to fight (and in many cases kill) one another.

In the Cordilleras, there is an albularya who is consulted specifically for treasure hunts. She has a covered basket in each corner of her room. She takes a dish filled with herbs and offerings to each basket. If all four baskets manifest a glow (like a candle glow) from within, the consultants have the go signal to proceed with their treasure hunt.
