This medicine bag is made from a piece of the most luscious winter beaver fur. The fur is so soft and thick. It is backed with a piece of soft deerskin, and hand stitched together with beadwork done in turquoise and orange seed beads. Adorning the front is a gorgeouse black tourmaline stone accented with a piece of aquamarine
The stone measures approximately 1 1/2 inches. The bag measures approximately inches 1/2 inches long by 3 3/4 inches wide - large enough to hold your medicines, but not too large. It hangs from a long piece of leather that will allow you to adjust it to your desired length. This bag is perfect for holding your sacred medicines, be they herbs, crystals, stones or something else,
Beaver's medicine brings you the wisdom of creativity, maintaining the ability to be productive in all ways, by not limiting your options, being persistent, using available resources, finding and using alternative ways of doing tasks, master builder of all things, not damming the flow of experiences in life, achievement through completion of tasks, understanding the dynamics of group work, protecting and cooperation.
Beavers are good at teamwork, and work together cooperatively to construct their homes. From Beaver we can learn that we can create and make things a reality most effectively and powerfully when all involved appreciate every individual's talents and work together harmoniously.
THE STONE MEDICINE:
Black Tourmaline is devoted to grounding spiritual energies, bringing a clearer expression of Light into the world and into the lives of those drawn to its powers. It furthers the ability to remain radiant in the darkest of circumstances, and to maintain a spiritual consciousness while living among those who are not always in the Light and do not understand the love of the universe
The meaning of the Aquamarine stone is based heavily on its namesake – the sea. Everything that the endless blue ocean represents is included in the meaning of this stone. It represents exhilaration as well as relaxing calm. It is a stone that encourages you to let go of your feelings and cleanses evil thoughts and barrier-inducing experiences. The stone inspires trust and truth.
PLEASE NOTE: I only use scrap furs to make my bags. If I had my way, none of these beautiful animals would be trapped and killed for the fur trade. But since they are, I figure I can do my best to honor the animals by taking the scraps from furriers and making these medicine bags to honor their lives and spirits.
