My Husband and I were camping at Red Rock Canyon in Mojave a short time ago. We set up camp just up against the beautiful chiseled rocks that form this amazing canyon. In an evening meditation, I had a vision, a visit from a Native American woman. She stood with the rock wall behind her, facing me, her waist long black hair covering her face. She held a baby girl in her arms. The baby morphed into a black crow and flew from her arms up into the night sky. “Remember to say Thank You” I heard, whispered in my ear.
This land was once inhabited by the Kawaiisu Indians. Thank you for your visit. Thank you for your vision. Thank you for reminding me to be grateful for this beautiful land we all get to experience.
