    I try to remember those who have helped me and/or my fellows in our forums...You always seem to have our back when you could be here. So I do remember you despite the "little smoke"

    But I have a confession to make. when I mentioned to Patti, my wife that an old friend has resurfaced, that would be you, it was my Wife Patti who remembered Mike's floors. Her comment

    "Takes a lot of guts and craftsmanship to take on a basketball players wood floors."..

    to which I add AN AMEN!

    BTW Why the hell didn't I think to try editing an old post to find out!?? Well done! LOL

    LutaWicasa,

    You have mentioned in the past that you have been involved in the the spiritual traditions of
    the Human Beings. My memory does not allow me to recall much more than that though I know I have asked you about your experiences in the past.

    If you can find the Time and don't mind my inquiring into something that many hold quite personally.
    could you outline your experiences, give me a clearer picture of your involvement?"

    I guess I'm asking is this your life or just something of real interest to you.

    Example:

    I owe Christianity a great deal...But the I Ching is my life path..I never get dusty without it! LOL

    If you find the time check this out. Some small thing is being born and I'd would very mush like your participation.

    Hmmm......quite a bit in a single post there ;)

    At one time (many years ago) I attended Sundance yearly. I was struggling to find answers, but there were none.
    However, after having done four years of Hanbleceya, I found I had to seek within myself and not seek from without.
    There still have been no answers. Perhaps answers are too absolute....I don't know, but I continue.
    Regarding the above linky...

    That link is to a private conversation, not a forum post. That's why you get the error.

    The mechanics or the experience?
    The mechanics vary a bit from people to people.
    As to the experience....my command of any language is more than insufficient to convey even the smallest part of this.

    Ok, let's go for the mechanics. I simply haven't heard of Hanbleceya until now.

    Alrighty then.
    Hanbleceya would loosely translate to "crying for a vision"...seeking guidance.
    One would first ask their medicine man to put them on the hill.
    Upon agreement, you would start preparation. In some of your preps you may have assistance...such as gathering of rocks for the inipi (sweat) or sage for ground cover in the initipi (sweat lodge) or wood for the fire.
    What you must do yourself.....
    Locate the site where you will be....you'll know when ya find it.
    The making of prayer ties (enough to surround your site, about 12 ft on a side tied about 5-6 inches apart)
    If you've not done so previously, make your canupa (pipe)
    Acquire a Star Quilt (this is best if not "bought" but either made, earned or gifted)
    Same with a Spirit Bowl.

    It begins now with an Inipi ceremony (the sweat "cleansing") in which you will also fill your pipe, after which you are escorted to your site.
    There, you are placed in the center, a cradle for the pipe is fashioned, the bowl is placed and filled. The prayer ties are strung with a side to each direction and closed.
    The people leave and you pray for 24 hrs.
    At the end of this time, the medicine man opens the enclosure and you are taken down to another inipi, during which your previously filled pipe is used.
    The following day, it is your responsibility to go up dismantle the site and bury or burn your prayer ties.
    This is done over 4 consecutive years...
    Year 1....1 day fast/prayer
    Year 2....2 day fast/prayer
    Year 3....3 day fast/prayer
    Year 4....4 day fast/prayer

    So...there ya go. The basics.

    I hope you don't you mind , I copied your post to a new post in random nonsense / Fear and Trembling.

    It's perfectly fine where it is, but I want to get you use to going there.and I'm trying to fatten up the new topic So I don't look to much like I'm talking to myself.":O}
