Traditional Folkloric Charms, Amulets & Talismans by Cailleach's Cottage
These Shamanic Rattles have been hand crafted with heritage wheat and contain a mixture of dried seeds to create very different sounds.
There are two different designs:
~ A Shamanic Rattle Stick which contains dried seeds for a very earthy tone when shaking
~ A Shamanic Rattle with a looped handle which contains dried seeds
inside a small container to create a louder and higher toned sound.
Both Rattles measure approximately 38cm long.
Rattles have been used for thousands of years since the earliest societies for a variety of reasons. The shaking of a rattle in itself creates a transformation of energy, by lifting, shaking and energising both the person wielding it and his or her audience.
Magically, rattles are sacred in many different spiritual traditions and practices; being used extensively to restore healing and for Shamanic Journeying. They can be used to invoke the spirits of those who came before; especially when working with your ancestors.
