Tell a friend

Jackie BranaganI went through a ceremony of stepping into the lineage I was learning. The eldest living human in the tradition became quite visible to me as I finished the ritual. That was when I realized that I was no longer alone.

I met Don Manuel Quispe a few months later, and of all the people gathered, he looked directly into my eyes for a long moment. Then later in our journey, he energetically helped me organize and charge my healing bundle, my Mesa. I knew I would never be the same.

In 2001, he came back to the U.S. one last time. I was privileged to be in the group he gathered. He checked everyone's mesa, and then gave his medicine to everyone there. Wow!

So it is my responsibility to use what I have been given for healing on all levels. I am humbly grateful.
