Are you seeking direction?

The Sacred Path Card that was pulled for this week’s “Wednesday Wisdom” is Vision Quest.  This is one of the oldest tools used by Native Americans to get the answers that they seek.  They would spend a few days out in nature, fasting and praying, awaiting a vision to give them a clearer understanding of their purpose or pathways in the world.

Often, by entering the Silence, the answers will be revealed by our own inner-knowing.  Or we can choose to go on a modified vision quest,  as described by me in the video below.

Know that the answers are all around us.  You just have to ask for assistance from Spirit or your Allies/Ancestors and then PAY ATTENTION.  Become conscious of the messages that appear. Describe what you see and understand that the wisdom will provide you with the information that you need.

If going on a mini “vision quest” in nature, find your power place and remember to give gratitude to that “teacher.” Ask the question and immediately pay attention to what you see.


1) Describe in detail what you are drawn to.

2) What is it doing?

3) How are you feeling when you see that?

4) How does that apply to your question?

Allow your intuition to guide you and be willing to recognize and accept the truth when it emerges. Trust those feelings and know that it will be up to you to follow them with action.
