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:
The Australian Deer hide is sourced from a local drum maker who passes on the leftovers to me so they dont go to waste. She sources them from local hunters and businesses.
The Deer antlers are sourced from a small Australian business who collects them from Australian Deer farms
The feathers are ethically sourced from a licensed seller meaning they come from moulting birds only, or are collected from the ground in my local area.
The rabbit fur is ethically sourced from rabits who have passed naturally a local business
The rattle heads are filled with dried mung beans
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 energy blocks
releasing attachments or lower vibrational entities
Each rattle has a beautifully unique personality and energy which you can connect to 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 getting it wet. Be careful not to knock the rattle head as it may become dinted. For any other questions regarding this rattle please feel free to contact me.
