More Phantom Drumming
I was especially affected by Begay's tale of hearing a peyote drum at night. This is because my husband and I also hear drumming, only we are living in San Antonio, Texas, and it is not a peyote drum, but rather it sounds like a large group, possibly in celebration. It all started after our house caught on fire. We were able to put it out before the fire truck came, but one of our bedrooms had to be rebuilt. It was a very frightening experience, and we decided we were not living the way we were supposed to be. We have settled in and become like everyone else since we moved here from our home in New Mexico seven years ago. But we are now trying to meet the sunrise again to get our daily blessings.
There has sometimes been an uncomfortable time when we both hear the drumming or singing, but hold back from saying anything to each other. If I hear my husband begin to sing along, then I know we are hearing the same thing. One voice stands out and sometimes he seems to be close to our window. We live in a regular city neighborhood, yet no one else seems to hear anything, which makes us feel that it is meant for us. I am of Diné-Pueblo descent, and my husband is Spanish and Lipan Apache. History shows that the Lipan lived in this area, and we believe that ancestors are reaching out to us. Accept the blessing... I sleep best when I hear the drums beating and the singing. This has been going on somewhat irregularly, but for months now, and our family is being blessed with good things.
