During the vision quest, a guardian spirit will generally come to the individual in a dream or a vision, which is afterward interpreted with the help of a Shaman.
Some items within the individual’s medicine bag would represent their guardian spirit.
Your Medicine Bag Meant to give guidance, good luck, good health, protection, abundance, and even love to the individuals who carry them, some may wish to carry their own medicine bag tailored just for them.
In the Native American tradition, each bag contains an item from the plant kingdom, the animal kingdom, the mineral kingdom, and the human world.
This bundle would obviously be much larger and would contain special objects which can only be handled by certain tribe members and is only opened on special occasions.
All bags and bundles can possess powers for protection, good luck, good hunting, or healing.
It can also be worn on a belt, put in a pocket, carried in a briefcase or purse, under clothing, on a saddle, in your car, or even put under your pillow at night.
By keeping it close you are connecting with your spiritual self and helping yourself in healing.
The wilderness, the dew drops, the pollen…I become a part of it.
The morning mists, the clouds, the gathering waters, I become a part of it.
