This rattle has ancient roots that weave their way back through time. She feels to me like she is connected to energies that are deeply primordial. The old ways that wish to be reignited call through her.
The medicine or shamans rattle is a sacred and universal energy tool that can be traced back to the majority of ancient cultures. They are known as the voice of the spirits, the sound of creation and are connected to the water element, representing the cleansing and calming effects of the rain. I am deeply honoured to have been called to create these rattles and am humbled to be able to share them with my community.
A little bit about the process and materials:
All hides are sourced from an Australian small business that collects them from hunters and meat processing plants meaning they would otherwise end up as waste.
The rattle heads are filled with a mix of corn, lentils, small rocks and crystal chips
All rattles are made in sacred ceremony with deep reverence and respect for the animal that the hide is sourced from. Throughout the process I may be called to work with the energy of specific power animals, crystals, herbs and symbols. I strictly follow the guidance and protocols of my spirit team and the spirit of the rattle itself as to how it would like to be crafted.
I have come to know the medicine rattle as an incredibly versatile and powerful energy tool that has many uses, some of these include:
Ceremony and ritual:
calling in the spirits and the 4 directions
calling in protection and setting energetic boundaries
honouring your guides, the land, the elements or your ancestors ect
rhythm keeping when chanting and singing
achieving an altered state of consciousness and shamanic journeying
Healing and energy work:
using as a diagnostic tool to locate energy blocks
dissolving and releasing stagnant energy
releasing and processing build up emotions
releasing attachments or lower vibrational entities
Each rattle has a beautifully unique personality and energy which you can connect with through a meditation or shamanic drum journey when you first receive it. During the exercise you can intend to meet the spirit of your rattle, learn about its purpose and how it may specifically want to be used. You can also hold a small ceremony to honour your rattle and thank it for working with you. I highly suggest these practices for cultivating a deep, personal relationship with your rattle.
To care for your rattle keep it somewhere safe when not in use. Due to the nature of raw hide please avoid extreme heat and humidity or getting it wet. Be careful not to knock the rattle head as it may become easily dinted. There may be some left over sand in the rattle head that may fall out for a short period of time, this is normal and will stop quite quickly.
For any other questions regarding this rattle please feel free to contact me.
