I feel this is an important message for survivors ..one of the ways I recovered and empowered myself was to revisit the old tradition of Vision Quest.
“I traveled the southwest, camping in the desert under the stars and in my car, purposely avoiding contact with people, my only companion my journal. What did I do with myself for 10 days? A lot of sitting in the dust and on the rocks, a lot of looking at the simple horizon of sky and land, a lot of listening to the wind. I was searching for guidance, but of course what I was really searching for was myself.
“The result of that journey was a tremendous breaking open of the dam in my heart and the resulting flood of tears, the bliss of knowing in every cell that I am part of something larger than me and my little mind, and the quiet reinstatement of my center as the thread of my life.”
Do you feel the calling of your soul? Perhaps a Vision Quest is in order!
