I have just come from the Ceremonial Lodge. I entered there last night to speak with the Ancient Ones.
I fasted for four days. I drank the Cleansing Brew to purge myself so I could enter there clean and unpolluted.
I Smudged myself to clean my skin and my mind.
I crossed into the Ancestor Lands and traveled to the center of the Spiral of Life. I was not allowed to enter the glow of that place, but, I could speak with those that live there.
I spoke of the trials and sicknesses we are enduring.
I asked for strength for each one here in our village to bear the burdens we must endure.
I asked for healing for the ill ones. I asked for courage for those in need of it.
Creator spoke and said He has heard my cries to him.
This is what I spoke across the barrier separating me from the Light....
May our village be a strong one that we may endure against anything that would harm any of us.
I am finished. I have no more words to speak.
