Words from Apache artist Cynthia Whitehawk:
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.
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.
Representing solace, greatness of the oceans, life of beauty, gentleness, caring, comfort, peacefulness, delight. Abalone shell discs are age old, traded tribally for centuries, symbol of power & protection & ancient travels. Read about stones
