Shipibo Rattle - Sun
These hand-carved gourd rattles with the image of the Sun, also known as maracas, are beautifully crafted by the Shipibo tribe on the Amazon river in the jungles of Peru. The gourd is actually a large tree seed and the stick handle is made from the wood of the contaduro palm tree, decorated with parrot feathers. Each rattle is a ceremonial shamanic rattle also carved with protection icaros (song designs).
- Each rattle is always one-of-a-kind creation with its own unique sound. Rattle imagery may vary.
- Carvings on each rattle may vary.
Sun Totem Medicine - The medicine of the Sun is that of enlightenment, illumination, warmth, light, and the ability to shine the way through the darkness. This celestial body gives life by bringing its fire and light from the heavens to earth. The Sun is also the symbol of energy, power, passion, positivity, clarity, and spiritual guidance.
Rattles are excellent shamanic tools to call in your allies, to call in good energy, and even to use in soul retrieval ceremonies. Rattles are also great cleaning and healing tools. Shake your rattle with clear intention to clear the space in a room, in your house or office, on your land, and most of all through your aura, or the energy field of another. Use with intention to journey inward for answers, as well as to collect lost soul parts.
