This year is moving forward quickly. Almost too quickly. The highlight of my year is always the sundance ceremony along with the accompanying vision quest or hanblechia. I know that there are several ways of spelling that. If this is not your way, I hope I do not offend anyone. Please move past it.
Last year before my quest, I was out riding my bicycle and I kept coming across herds of elk crossing my path. This happened several days in a row. I was just happy and amazed since this had never happened before. And when I say herds, I do mean herds. Big herds!
The only other time this has happened was ages and ages ago when I lived in Colorado. I was going for a late night drive and turned a corner to find myself knee high to a giant elk. ( I was driving a tiny 60’s volkswagon at the time.) And in front of this one were what looked like hundreds more .
Back to my bicycle ride last year, I did not connect the elk herds I saw then with anything more than a wonderful spirit visitation for the moment. However, when I went on my hanblechia, the elk spirits were my primary guides.
This year I hope not to miss these advance messages from the spirit world introducing me to my guides for the quest, and ever so gently preparing me for their messages and healing energy.
