For four days I refrained from food and drink.
I sat alone in my lodge turning away all that would come to the entrance.
I thought only of the thing I had set myself to do.
I then drank the purging tea to rid myself of any lingering impurities.
Four times I drank and spewed the poisons from my stomach.
I went to the purifying lodge to sweat.
I threw sage on the coals of the fire outside and stood naked in the smoke.
Six times did I enter and sweat.
Six times did I bathe in the cold water.
I entered the sacred ceremonial lodge after the last trip into the water.
For six days did I send my voice to Creator.
I kept the sacred woods burning.
I lay the sacred plants on the coals.
Creator lifted me to float in the mist of the the Otherworld.
We spoke for many fingers of time.
I pleaded for this illness afflicting the people be ended.
I asked for a healing for all the peoples.
Creator heard and returned me to the lodge.
I have done all I can.
Creator will do as He will.
May all be well that hear these words.
May you have health.
May you have peace.
