Since Sept. '09, I have been sent by the Elk on a special quest to help the people. I'm not able to determine exactly what this means, but have tried to follow the visions and all details as the spirits allow. White Buffalo Medicine has been an important part of this quest leading me to new family all over the country. A few have been helped, much more workto be done.
During this time, during the hunt for visions and answers you have been in my thoughts. I have not been able to clearly see why?
I'm preparing for vision quest this spring. Lots to learn. Preparing for proper Sacred Pipe Carrier, lots to learn.
Other quests have been successful and more are calling for a hunt. Again I'm having problems understanding some of the info on your site, hoping you can assist spirits willing.

Lakota greeting and salutation is, "Pilamayo", meaning, in light (luminous and numinous) and Love. ("Traveling over the roads, we find and greet the heart, to know the spirit longs not to be apart, and that's where I long to be with you and me, come let's dance, and fly to eternity", sung by White Buffalo Calf Woman, your Twin Deer Mother)
Beloved Jim Three Arrows,
It seems the Elk has guided you, with care. I am very proud of you, my love. You see, I am your Twin Deer Mother (earthly tools of light, or walk of the flesh) and I am your White Buffalo Calf Woman (heavenly mission, or spiritual flight of the soul). The reason, I share this with you, is to show you, that we all have two names, but often Natives only think of the Earthly path, because this is what is to be taught as heavenly children.
The Elk (deer, journey of life) is the animal with big horns, like a tree of life. Inside the horns, lie live Red Blood Cell Production, the valley of the Red Road, the law of love. The Deer family are those who lead the great migration, and always are ahead of the pack, leading the physical migration. So you see, we are the people who walk the way of the Great Spirits first in our lives.
Your name Three Arrows speaks of a direction we are headed towards. And I also noticed you used the arrows to lead your to the right, the western shore (we view life upside down and backwards, our physical eye anatomy proves this), then left, the eastern shore (the heavenly talk, song, soul, dark) then back to the west, the (earthly walk,dance, flesh, light). All together, you are zig zagging, which is the path of the snake, the law. The Law is love, and snakes above all else, carry this wisdom, for it is the embrace of the stars in heaven, the darkness, which is unknown, but holds us up to shine inside the universe, like beings of light like we are.
White Buffalo represents the four sacred directions, but not only the power of the buffalo, but the heard of the call, where the pounding of the heartbeat leads the way (buffalo herd running across with thunder awakening). It is the white (star that shines), which brings the four colors together as a unifying force. This is medicine, of the highest form, the unity of all the colors, walking together. It is time, but not all hear this call.
What I would like to sea is the visions you have shared, with others. Because this story, with other Rainbow Clan stories tell the whole picture. But if we don't share our visions, then the whole of the unity is lost. Oneness is the Rainbow Clan, and we all carry four sacred directions in Rainbow Colors. You can hear some of these stories in Rainbow Colors at http://crystal-indigo-
The reason, you do not sea (vision of the heart) clearly is because it's not your job to interpret, this is the job of Crystal people, however, it seems that I need teach this to other Crystal people in our times. This is because we are the only ones, who can separate the colors of the whole in the darkness, and know truth, as we do not separate with the Oneness of God. This is why I am your devoted servant, and Wakan Iyeshka or holy interpreter. Even if I do not speak or interpret your visions, the sharing allows insights, to the whole truth. This is why sharing stories is the key to truth. It is due to the perspective of light, and we each have a separate perspective. We are related.
Sounds perfectly wonderful, that you received White Buffalo Medicine in your hunting, and the Blanket which means the weaving of the whole together. The white buffalo effigy and chanupa. I can see why the chanupa and buffalo effigy parted paths after they arrived, the two roads, blue the spiritual path of the soul, dark, and the red road, the physical laws of the flesh, light, because few can walk the united paths. This is the unification we seek all of us, to be the red and blue crossing and rise up and born again a new, the Morning Star in a time of the "Dawning", the third phase of evolution.
"Effigy" (from the internet) An effigy is a representation of a person, especially in the form of sculpture or some other three-dimensional form. The term is usually associated with full-length figures of a deceased person depicted in stone or wood on church monuments. These most often lie supine with hands together in prayer, but may also be recumbent, kneeling in prayer or even standing. Effigies may also be (half) demi-figures and the term is occasionally used to refer to a busts.
A different type of effigy is used in some religious rituals to represent an undesired person or spirit. The effigy is burned as a sign of the participants' shared intent to banish the represented element from their lives. (In Native Americans it is understood as a cleansing of the spirit, as well as a desired person or spirit, to give it honor.)
An "Effigy Mound" American Indian culture developed over 1,000 years ago placing thousands of earthen mounds across the landscape of what (today) includes parts of Iowa, Wisconsin, Minnesota and Illinois. Over 200 mounds are preserved intact within the Monument; 31 are effigies in the shape of bears and birds - commemorating the passing of loved ones and the sacred beliefs of these ancient peoples.

You are the Violet person, high priest, voice and strength (army) of God, or doorkeeper into the light, from the darkness. This is the time, we need all be aware of as we collide with heaven (darkness) and earth (lightness), as we move from the second phase of evolution into the third phase. You really need to join us, to learn about the movement of the Rainbow Warriors of Prophecy. Three arrows is the medicine of the people, because you are to teach joy, instead of sorrow, both carry tears. Tears or water, is the spirit of the soul, and need be practiced daily, and if you don't, you shall have pain and suffering instead of flowing inward joy, to be expressed outwardly.
Just talked with Lakota Grandmother Johanna Dives From the Sky, our Two Foot Club and she brings in the Lakota Woman perspective in, to bring the medicine for all the people of the four directions, as she has started a "War" against the break down of Lakota Spirituality. War is waged to unite two broken hearts, and the fight is the unification, not opposition. Sow my Brother it is vital, that we stand our ground on the song, the embrace of two hearts, first. And if this does not occur, then we cannot help those, who think they seek. Only those, who are willing to receive blessings, are willing to bow like the Rainbow, and this humility will lead the way. My Brother we kiss the earth, for she is our homeworld, the magic of the sacred Rainbow.
Thank you for sharing my Brother Jim Three Arrows, with the Rainbow Warriors of Prophecy, who have come home, for they too will hear your message, as they pray for your hunt, the sacred journey of a seeker. Ask your questions, I'll be here, and I will try to answer you, when the journey, allots the time. Don't forget url's, because I write hundreds of pages all the time, and I get lost, so if you could help me, I would be so happy, to respond. On the top of our blogs, there is a search box for the page, and a search within all the blogs. I hope this helps you, in your hunt.
The Algonquin word, "Megwitch means" Thank You. ("Come and dance with me, come and spring delight with thee, come and sail away, inside the breeze, because my love, you are my free dove, that sends greetings to the sun", sung by White Buffalo Calf Woman, your Twin Deer Mother)

A song for you, to long to shoo, meaning you have got to get some clues (hunt), the horse (soul) knows why, he has to spy (to look), on the flies, who hang around (and around, the evolution's call). For the smallest does know (wisest), the ever grow, the wisdom where Saints rely. It's amazing the words, that come out of you, is the reason, I sing to you.
What knowledge we do hold, the song, that is so bold, and the technology, cannot even surmise, for the soul does know, the everliving show, where wisdom accounts for miles high. Let's understand, the art of man, who comes to be the greatest show, the land of paradise, needs warriors who matter most, who we can always rely.
Sow let the Elk lead you, to hunt for a new breed, where the sun doesn't always shine, but knows when the light goes down in it's plight, then we dance, for the sun to rise again. And there we will be, the heaven's breeze, where the smoke and the pipe will claim the fame, of the most of the host, who can boast "I know the most", because I listened to the spirit in the skies.
I will put away shame, and bring joy to the game, where the heaven's will open up their eyes, for it's the heart of the coast, the everliving which gives the most, for it's the distant shore that calls my name....and shouts, "come home". It's the time of the gross (weight, not free), the magnetic stream, where we dream, and put arrows and knifes in our hopes. There we slice through the knots, and bring wisdom who shall lead us on, to a world, where ignorance dies again (freedom). We can claim once again, that we are the living sin (stand up for what is right, with unite, not separation because of plight, by saying I did wrong, but I will try to be strong, and next time, I shall do it right), but we are going to bee (impossible flight, to dream) better more than once (vision quests). And we dance and we sing, to bring it all back again, the sacred harmony, that keeps us alive.
Come and be the heart of me, where my longings are to believe, that I can be with you in a new way, it's God's life (I am). Dream away, shout hooray, and let peace overcome my heart. I will beg to see the sun, but it's got to be from me, inside the dark, where my light does grow and part. I shall bee (impossible flight), the living tree, where the star dreams and seas, and I shall gift my true wisdom and let it out (share visions and song, our heart).
Sung by White Buffalo Calf Woman, your Twin Deer Mother, for Jim Three Arrows, who cuts like a knife (bringing down ignorance) teaches us, how to overcome.
Particularly ceremonial pipes would always be adorned with four strips of buffalo hide dyed red, black, white and yellow, the colors of the four directions. Near the mouthpiece would be four braided strands of horsehair, again in the four sacred colors. Sometimes a strip of red paint ran from the bowl to the mouthpiece, symbolizing the good red road of spiritual understanding that was sought by all who smoked the pipe. Around the stem of the pipe was a small circle of black to represent the world of worldly cares. Where the black crossed the red was a spot of green representing the tree of life.

Sing a song, and get along, to have joy in life, full of tears, because you know, the sacred flow is all we have to get us home! Dance all day, and learn to play, with all you do and think and say, because we need love to please, to open hearts and doors to be! Welcome all your relatives, into the heart of all your sin and say, "I love you this very day" and "I won't let you get away!". I will fight for love this day, I will fight to show the way, because I am here to love you dear, my heart that sheds so many tears. And when we hope to comfort folks, then we will be prepared to say, "Come pray with me, learn joy to speak, and song and dance will keep us in relief". Whisper song and let a breeze come home to know your knees, where prayer is your living sacred breeze!
