What if you ask permission and leave Pele an offering? When I went to Haleakala this is what I did after doing meditation and paying my respects to Pele. I asked multiple times to make sure there wasn't a negative feeling, that's happened plenty of times. The lava rock has been on my altar and I've felt her presence in a good way in my life. I didn't realize there was a curse until wanting to learn more about Pele! What should I do?
Don't worry about it. Obviously if you feel a positive presence, there is no curse. In fact, this article was about a legend about a curse. Some people feel compelled to remove any rocks they've removed. But if you don't feel that way, then you're good. I'm glad you've had positive experiences on Maui. Aloha, Stephanie
