Here is my Remo Buffalo Drum. It is pretty big, about 12 inches in diameter. We have always wanted to have drums. We have always wanted to learn drumming.
Once we started taking Reiki classes we knew we wanted to get a buffalo drum.
We really want to use it lots more in life and in healing. So it will start on our altar but will not always stay there. Most of our sacred items for the altar will be moved about as well, so they are being used and loved and so the whole of my sacred home space becomes embued with sacredness and healing.
This is my crystal bell. I’ve had it for about ten years. I’ve wanted one for so long and finally found one at a used store for about four dollars! It is about 7 inches tall and has a frosted flower pattern on it. I have always intended using it for an altar. I do use it already to cleanse my stones/crystals. I love the sound it makes.
This is my college medallion, that I received on graduating with my double major Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology and Anthropology, at Metropolitan State University in Minnesota. I am so proud of myself and all that I overcame to finish.
It is a very sacred object to me and I usually like to have it on my desk, within easy sight. Now it will be on the desk area for my Healing Altar, right next to my computer desk.
This is a smaller sacred bag that I bought myself as a Christmas present for myself the year that I started taking Reiki classes. The small bag and bracelet are completely made of beads and thread. The bag is about 2 inches long with about another inch of fringe.
They were made by women in Central America. When I held it in my hands I knew they had to be mine.
As you can see the beads are incredibly sparkly. And that is in low lighting and no flash. I love midnight blue. That and baby blue are my two all- time favorite shades of blue.
Here is my medicine bag, a barn owl spirit bag, deerskin totem pouch. I purchased this from our blog friend, Story.
Edit: I forgot to mention the size of my bag, it is large, about 8 inches tall. It was so much bigger than I envisioned it, but actually just right for me. I had thought, oh, it will be quite small, but it wasn’t. 🙂 It is totally going to fit in just right on my altar. 🙂
This is my second ceramic cat mask, for my healing altar, a jaguar cat. It is slightly smaller than my other mask and the face is less round. The photo doesn’t do it justice. Perhaps it will look better in photos once it is placed on a small stand.
Cats have been important to me/us all our life. That doesn’t mean that I am not a dog person too, just that it took a lot of time and effort to truly become a dog person as well as a cat person.
