Smoke Fan Feather - Animal Spirits
This unique feather has been imprinted with the paw prints of the Puma, Wolf and Bear. The handle has been covered in dark brown faux suede and features naturally shed turkey feathers and assorted beads. Approximately 7.5" long.
Since antiquity feathers from various birds have been used for decorative purposes, rituals and ceremonies. Feathers are believed to contain the spirit and powers of the bird they came from and these attributes can be called upon to aid the user.
"Smudging" is the common name given to a powerful cleansing technique from the Native American tradition; however, the burning of herbs for emotional, psychic, and spiritual purification is a common practice among many religious, healing, and spiritual traditions. It is a ceremonial way to cleanse a person, place or an object of negative energies or influences. It is also an effective method for energizing or blessing a person, place or object. Feathered fans are often used to help direct the smoke.
