Originally created to hand from a newborn’s cradleboard. The creation of the bag was done by the father, who in making the bag, was said to be a tool that bonded the father with his unborn child. The design contains symbology —————— at the top represents the Path of Beauty we walk; the U represents the medicine bowl container protection of Spirit in this EarthWalk. This protection bundle begins and ends a spiritual life path.
As the child grows, they are taught to squeeze the bag when they become angry or afraid, breathing, pumping up the protection… calming the panic. The draw string speaks to guzhugjua… being perfectly encircled, perfectly protected.
Each bag comes with four stones representing the Ancestral Mountain Spirits who watch over us. They are meant to be added to by the individual wearer to personalize and align the energies. Instructions come with the bag. Hand created in a sacred way by the shimas, Maria and Linda.
