Words from Apache artist Cynthia Whitehawk:
MEDICINE BAG: Medicine bags are ancient personal empowerment tools. Spiritually representing the wearer, they contain that which is most Spiritually significant & healing to the individual to help guide and protect one on their journey. This might include collected Spirit objects or totems, a small feather, beads, horse hair, healing gemstones & crystals, seeds, photos & more. Those items that are important to the wearer protect, grounds them to our Mother Earth and the Creator, and brings them strength & healing.
MY MISSION: We are thankful and honored to be able to respect the Spirits of the plants, animals and Mother Earths elements who give themselves and continue their life as healing tools for us. We offer these tools for Spiritual expression, to be in balance with Mother Earth and one's self.
TURQUOISE is associated with the sky, and bringing sky energy to earth. It can help promote honest and clear communication from the heart. Bringer of abundance. Turquoise can also help speed the healing process, and is known as a master healer stone. It is very powerful for grounding and protection.
BEAR is the first medicine healer, the keeper of the ancient ways. The bear is a powerful ally who offers protection and guidance during stressful situations or to resolve long standing problems.
