THE WATERBIRD FREQUENTLY APPEARS IN CEREMONIAL BEADWORK. ASSOCIATED WITH THE PEYOTE CEREMONIES OF THE NATIVE AMERICAN, THE WATERBIRD CAN BE EQUATED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT IN CHRISTIANITY. THE WATERBIRD FACING UPWARD CAN BE SEEN AS A MESSENGER TO THE CREATOR, CARRYING THE PRAYERS OF THOSE PARTICIPATING IN THE CEREMONY. OFTEN INCORPORATED INTO THE BEADWORK DESIGNS, YOU'LL SEE FEATHERS SIGNIFYING BLESSINGS, PRAYERS AND SPIRITUAL PROTECTION.Medicine Bag Leather Pouch Medicine Bags are a tool of power for your spiritual journey. This Bag is made from Deerskin featuring a beaded Waterbird design on the front. The pouch measures approx. 5 inches long, 3.75 inches wide and a 30 inch long adjustable leather tie, which you can cut to fit. Think of a medicine bag as a container for your portable living altar. Carry those items that represent your inner work, take time to open the bag and create your altar, wver you are. Wrap the objects in a special cloth, and use the cloth as a place for your spread. Meditate with them. Wear the bag close to you, fill it with your intent, and grow your life. PLEASE BID WITH CONFIDENCE, THESE ITEMS ARE HAND BEADED BY ME AND NOT IMPORTED FROM OVERSEAS.
