That twin is mystical I presume? And the Hopi accepted you? In a hut with burning sage
Yup the twin is mystical and yup the spirits of the Hopi shamans and the peyote spirits accepted me and the Spider Mother accepted me. They led me
across the country from sacred site to sacred site...I had no idea where I would end up.
I Greet You!
BlueMule was wondering if you could tell me more bout these "Peyote Spirits"?
I greet you back!
They are wise and patient teachers. They look kind of like this.
edit on 5-1-2013 by BlueMule because: (no reason given)
I am always interested in how others experience Peyote, most talk bout trips and the high. For me, This Peyote come around my tribe long ago, from a
man named John Rave, and he brought this Peyote cult to us, and the developed a religion out of this Peyote, today known as the Native American Church
and there are many chapters throgh out Native American communities. The one developed where I grew up was called the White Cross Native American
Church. My Dad was a ordained Reverend of this church. So, I have had the chance to learn of this way and its beliefs.
There is a story, where this group of Natives were at differences with this other Native Village, for some reason or other, this village was attacked
and they hunted down the ones who escaped, this one woman was alone in the desert and she was lost and hungry. She knew they were after her, and she
was very afraid. She ran till she could not run anymore, then she fell to the ground, she fell asleep and her hand touched something cool and then she
had a vision of sorts, This cool thing her hand touched, was a plant that was Peyote, a cacti and this plant spoke to her.
This is one story i heard bout amongst a few others but this one explained a vision and this plant asked her to bring to her people. The Comforter
this plant was known as and along the way it has taught many different ways and then at that time, it was illegal to Native Americans in my
grandfather's time. They had to secretly obtain this sacred plant, even some went to prison and died in prison for transporting this plant to other
Native American homes, to be many good things to them, drove away the deire to consume alcohol as it was rampant and destructive to many Native
Americans. Over the years they United States Government had enough dealings with these Peyote eaters. So in order for them to have this sacred plant
in their lives, they had to instill the Holy Bible and Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. Hence the chapters and the National Organization called
the Native American Church of North America.
I myself have had a Dad who saw that I could use my free will to choose my own path, and I did and it was not about Peyote. I fasted when i was 12
years old, and live by my own path and live it to the best of my ability.
I could tell you some stories and even tell you of my own experiences, maybe another time, if you are interested.
I bet you thought I was gonna get injun on you didn't you? Cause it is against the law for non-Native Americans to consume this sacred plant, but its
not my place to say. Its the United States Government that makes it that way, many Native Americans have the same belief and some are very hostile.
Thank you for answering me.
