Is it time for you to step into your medicine?
We will be creating a medicine shield used for spiritual protection and empowerment. Your personal Medicine Shield that will be meaningful and powerful to you. Medicine shields were used by Indigenous people for spiritual as well as physical protection.
The shields we will be creating will be circular, and decorated with own power symbols and objects. If you like you can draw upon them and paint your power animal & allies that are close too or working with the cardinal direction. Sometimes parts of animals would be attached as well, such as feathers, fur, bones, claws or attaching medicine bundles or prayer ties to them. The Medicine will connect you to all that is sacred and personal to you to hold protective power within it.
We begin with a shamanic journey to envision the design. The design on the shield would be revealed through this vision.
As the shields will be round in shape materials and we will use materials such as canvas, felt cloth or if you wish to bring a piece of leather for the main body of the shield. It is time to go treasure hunting!
The canvas can be painted with a sacred and protective images provided by a spirit helpers and totems. Creating your own medicine shield opens you to a Shamanic understanding to help you recognize your own medicine power and learn how to express it. Declare your medicine within the shield and work with your sacred intentions to manifest to your inner power and your personal direction of your medicine path.
Bring your Dreams into realities and remembering your life journey by expressing your power and soul vision.
The Treasure Hunt:
Please bring sacred objects, beads, feathers, pieces of leather scraps, power objects, sticks, strings, ribbons, hemp, cloth, animal pictures can also be placed on the shield or animal bones, teeth, claws, you decide perhaps just paint them on, bring pictures that will help you with your artwork.
