Bill's Wild West Prayer Trip
asked me, "What my fascination is with Buffalo
Bill?" They were speaking to me in regards to
this quest that I call the "Buffalo Bill Wild
West Prayer Trip". I had to tell them that I
didn't know what the answer is to that question. Because
my fascination was not with the man who was known
as Buffalo Bill, instead I was bound to my own greater
spiritual quest that these journeys are part of.
my journey to Tibet
in October 2000, I had this powerful spiritual experience
while playing my guitar in the holy places of that
barren mountain country. I felt like the mountains
there told me to return to America and find the spiritual
power of the Medicine Wheel and my heritage from the
American frontier. Once I have done this I will return
to Tibet and ask what I should do next. I had this
vague idea that was communicated to me by rocks in
Tibet, but I didn't know how to go about reconnecting
to my power that lay somewhere in the ghost towns
and abandoned Indian villages of the western regions
it was I decided to create a plan to perform a series
of prayer ceremonies, and then I started feeling like
I was getting signals from a female spirit. I soon
became aware that this spirit was Helen Cody Wetmore,
the sister of William F. Cody alias Buffalo Bill.
Her spirit lead me to a biography she wrote about
her brother's life titled, "Last of the Great
Scouts." I read the book twice in one week's
time and then the whole idea of my "Buffalo Bill's
Wild West Prayer Trip" just popped into my head,
and I knew I was going. Once I got the theme in my
head it was easy to map out a route that followed
the life and adventures of Buffalo Bill and his friends.
Now the project has evolved into a series of trips
and journeys to bring me closer to the old West.
first stop was at Buffalo Bill's Grave on Lookout
Mountain outside Denver, Colorado. I went there and
read from the Bible and the Tibetan Book of the Dead.
I meditated, prayed, and performed my ceremonies.
Mostly I just did what came to me at the time, because
I was just grasping for straws at this point.
