Vision Quest 2018 – Nina Urcu – Sicilia ITALY
welcome to Our new temple of Vision Quest in Italy , NINA URCU “The Mountain of Fire” close to our sacred VolcanoMama Etna.
We are sending this voice towards the seven directions to invite everyone to our Vision Quest ceremony, that will take place August 24 through September 7, 2018, in the land of Sicily islands at 1000 meter above sea level in the south of Italy, and that will be led by our Chief Santiago Andrade, spiritual leader of the Sacred Fire of Itzachilatlan.
During our Vision Quest, two Four Tobaccos Ceremonies will be held to celebrate our mountain time, and within them a space to bless our relations, alliances and to receive names.
Our Vision Quest is a four year ascending design.
The first year we pray for four days and nights facing the East, the red color from where the sun comes, from where the light of the new day arrives. In this year we pray for humility.
The second year we pray for seven days facing the South, the yellow color, where live power of life, nature and the power of the plants. This year we pray for willpower.
The third year we pray for nine days facing the West, the black color, the mystery, what we can not see or understand. This year we pray for sincerity.
The fourth year we pray for thirteen days and we face the North, the white color, the clarity, this year we pray for integrity, for being able to integrate all the teachings in our lives.
The commitment to the four year design is our proposal for following through of our purposes. To give ourselves a small space of time to prove to ourselves our seriousness and sincerity to receive the teachings of the Spirit. This is the way of our family of opening the the space for those who wish to truly better within themselves.
This way gives us the possibility of making a full circle of four years of work with ourselves, to learn to overcome our limitations and our difficulties.
“Vision Quest is the space and time of fasting, of retreat and of complete silence, for the recognition of the ancestral instructions engraved in our hearts. The family has recognized that the path is the search for our truth. It is within our nature to search for everything that is unknown, with the purpose of improving our relation our with family and ourselves. We recognize that it is our nature who ignites our spirit and convokes it to search. We also recognize that it is the wisdom of nature that reigns over our lives, who conveys wisdom and knowledge, and peace we surrender ourselves to its call.
This is why, one of the purposes of our lineage is to open a space for the family to know, to encounter itself, to return to nature, to the sacred presence of life, to the existing wisdom in our Mother Earth.
Space for knowledge occurs within us when we give ourselves the possibility of silence. Silence purifies us so we may be able to find the sacred moment of the word that vibrates in the air and blesses. Our mountain time allows us to wake up in the morning, waking in consciousness when Father Sun bestows his light and illuminates Mother Earth. With her all the sons and daughters who want to recognise it so.
We also want to recognise in ourselves the attention and value of our life. Watching the sunset, its mystery and its giving way for the moonlight and stars who travel the universe, praying for clarity in our lives. We want to recognize this clarity directly, during the night and day, in the presence of the Great Spirit.
At this time our purpose becomes one with the whole universe, it gives us the opportunity to find the right answers to our questions. To become the support that our family is already waiting for us to start being part of the solution and to let the Mountain and its wisdom penetrate our being and then we can be a channel for it to flow through us, towards everyone “ .
