This is a shamanic rattle made from horse rawhide and hazelwood, and it was made at the time of the new moon in May 2021. We have placed moonstone crystal chips inside and finished off the handle with a layer of bee’s wax produced from rescued bees and some pheasant feathers.
About the making of this rattle
Our rattles are carefully crafted from materials sourced from the UK. The hazel handles are harvested from traditional coppiced woodlands in Lancashire and polished with wax from bees that have been rescued. The hides used to create the rattle heads are from red deer and horses that have roamed British meadows and moorlands. We decorate each rattle with feathers from birds we find out on our walks or lying by the side of roads. Our rabbit fur comes from the southwest of England from rabbits that have been culled through a wildlife conservation programme.
The energy of Horse
This incredible animal transformed the World once its speed and power were harnessed. The horse was the first thing that allowed humans to travel faster than their two legs, and this unsung hero of mankind has had an impact on the World everywhere it has gone and on every aspect of life. History tells us that civilization was made by men, but it was the energy of the horse that built it. Drawing on the energy of Horse will give you inner strength and will be a driving force for you in your life. We can use Horse energy to overcome obstacles in life and pursue our goals no matter what may stand in our way. An enabler, Horse will help you thrive in finding the motivation that you need and the passion to see things through. The energy of Horse is about personal drive, passion and an appetite for freedom.
The energy of Pheasant
The pheasant is largely a ground-dwelling bird and loves open spaces where it can roam freely. This bird brings with it the energies of movement, expression, and variety. Pheasant has a particular strut in its style, and the flamboyant eye-popping colours of the male pheasant remind us that nature knows no end to its variety and creativity. They have an amazing ability to camouflage themselves and hide, with an unusual way to outwit its predators. It will lie low until they are really close and then flap their wings vigorously and give out a prominent staple call making the predator jump and delay the chase.
The energy of Moonstone
As ancient as the moon herself, Moonstone holds the power of mystery, and gives us a touchable connection to the magic of the moon. This stone holds the energy of intuition and balance, and since ancient times has been an amulet of protection for travellers, a channel for prophecy and a path to understanding. Our ties to the moon are strong as it governs the tides and rhythms of the Earth with its waxing and waning, and with this influences our emotions, behaviours and spiritual growth. Moonstone calms and relieves stress while releasing love of all kinds.
All of our rattles come with a “7-day trial period”, to allow you time to hold it in your hands, ensuring that you are right for each other.
