CERAMIC HAND WHITE SAND
The centrepiece of the Modern Shaman Set is our Hand of Shaman. The centrepiece of the First Timer set is our Hand of Shaman. Why is the From a hand? The hand is an ancient symbol of protection known in many cultures. The Hand of Shaman is also known as the healing hand because it is said to help us stay healthy both mentally and physically. The shaman's hand connects the hand to the spiral, creating a powerful symbol of healing and protection. The spiral comes from Native American tradition and symbolises eternity and the ways of our existence on earth. Man glaubt, dass die Schamanenhand die Kraft hat, Körper, Geist und Seele zu heilen, zu schützen und zu erneuern. The hand is the most commonly symbolised part of the human body. According to Aristoteles the hand is the "tool of tools". It generally stands for strength, power and protection. As a symbol, it perfectly complements the ritual of incense burning known as energy purification.
Our ceramic incense holder is handmade. Perfect for Palo Santo and natural incense. Cleanse your space of negative energy and then place the incense on the ceramic hand to burn. Each hand is made from the highest quality natural materials: Clay, glaze and oxide. The clay is then moulded, dried and fired in a kiln at a very high temperature. The ceramic hands are made by a local artist with whom we collaborate.
White sage has been used by Native Americans for thousands of years to remove negative energy. In our First Timer Set, Sage is the aggressively cleansing incense, while Palo Santo brings positive energy back into the room. Our White Sage comes from the natural habitats of Salvia Apiana in the coastal mountains of California. It is harvested by hand in a way that does not damage the plant's natural environment. Sage relieves anxiety, symptoms of depression and hyperactivity. The smoke of burning sage calms the mind, relaxes the body and has a positive effect on mood. Research on the properties of sage smoking suggests that the plant stimulates mental functions, alleviates depression and even stimulates the brain's memory functions.
Another item in the Beginner's Kit is one of the most popular and commonly used incense. It is most often used for spiritual purification and energy balancing. It removes negative energy, neutralises tension in the body, calms the emotions and harmonises the mind. Raise your vibration and discover peace and grounding by connecting more deeply with the earth and inner consciousness. We never cut down live trees - our Palo Santo is only made from dead, naturally fallen trees. Our Palo Santo (Bursera graveolens) is harvested in a way that respects the natural environment. This unique product is much more than just another trend or a pleasant scent, and that's how it should be treated - with respect for its mystique, its properties and the culture it comes from.
Pine incense is traditionally associated with prosperity, protection and good health. It is extremely powerful and has been used as an incense in rituals for its rejuvenating properties. Its energy is cleansing, healing, nurturing and strengthening. Incense with pine is also excellent for blessing new spaces and for meditation practice.
The Modern Shaman set also includes sweet grass. The purpose of this beautiful and powerful plant is to raise consciousness and thereby promote connection to your higher self. Indigenous tribes traditionally burned it to drive away evil and calamity and attract positive energy. The smell of sweet grass is often described as fresh hay with a hint of vanilla. When burned, it induces a soft, almost hypnotic state. Sweetgrass is an aromatic herb that originates from the Great Plains, a geographical and cultural area in Canada and the USA. It is a sacred plant throughout North America and has been used for centuries as incense and herbal medicine. In traditional rituals, sweetgrass is often used immediately after purification with sage.
