Spirit Bundles by SnowFyre

What are Spirit Bundles?

 

Spirit Bundles are known by many names across cultures and have many uses. The ancient Celts referred to them as Crane Bags and numerous references to them are found in the lore and legends of the lands. Native Americans use the term Medicine Bag/Pouch/Bundle. While yet other names used are Possibles Bag, Prayer Pouch, Gris Gris, and Mojo Bag.

 

The bag acts like a tool kit for the traveling healer, a talisman for certain spirit allies, or to carry prayers or affirmations until they are manifested. Simply write your prayer or affirmation on a leaf or piece of paper, place it and any other items symbolic of your intention inside the bundle. You can wear your Spirit Bundle around your neck, attach it to your walking staff, or hang it from the mirror in your car. The possibilities are endless.

 

Each Spirit Bundle is lovingly created from quality materials. Spirit Bundles by SnowFyre are an original design by Marilee. If your bag was purchase from elsewhere, it is not an authentic and genuine SnowFyre creation. Each one is a unique, one-of-a-kind work of art. Custom orders are always welcome. Bundles can be created in any size, color, or theme. The bundles shown here are in stock and ready to ship.

Spirit Bundles - Keepers of Story

Dark Half of the Year Reflections

An article published November 20, 2015

by Marilee NiEtain

 

As I allow the introspective pondering and reflection of the year's dark half embrace me, I have found myself looking back. Memory surfacing and melding with the power of emotion.

I look out the window and pause in the beauty of the freshly laid snow on the pine branches. I hear the song of geese as they fly overhead. In the warmth of my home I methodically catalog, write descriptions, and photograph each Spirit Bundle I will place for sale.

Spirit Bundles are known by many names across cultures and have many uses. The ancient Celts referred to them as Crane Bags and numerous references to them are in the lore and legends of the lands. Native Americans use the term Medicine Bundle/Bag. While yet other names used are Possibles Bag, Prayer Pouch, Gris Gis, and Mojo Bag. The bag can act as a toolkit for the traveling healer, a talisman for certain spirit allies, or to carry prayers or affirmations until they are manifest.

I have created hundreds, if not thousands of Spirit Bundles over the years. I have sold many. I have gifted many more. They have found their way around the globe. Passing through the hands and hearts of many, each has their own story to tell.

As I handle each one, preparing it to post - I reflect on when it was created, where I was, how the materials came to be a part of it, all of the markets and fairs it has traveled to - and then...to where it may be heading to continue its mysterious journey.

My mind wanders to flashes of all those that have claimed their purpose thus far - to all who have purchased or been gifted one of the bags. I have created bags for healing, for celebration, for memorials, for ceremony, for decoration, and for endless other purposes. Wedding rings and jewelry of passed relatives, dog tags of heroes, and all types of cherished mementos and trinkets have become a part of the stories.

Stories are powerful. And the telling of story can be very healing and empowering. I have used many techniques clinically that show this to be true.

An interesting thought came to mind while taking a break from my tasks. How beautiful would it be to collect the stories of all the Spirit Bundles that have gone forth into the world? I'd love to create a gallery of human story. If only to witness the beauty of human. The beauty of spirit.

If you or anyone you know has acquired one of these Spirit Bundles, I'd love to hear from you. How did you find your Spirit Bundle? How did you use it? What did it mean? What is its story? What is YOUR story?

If you ever had a different form of bundle, please share. If you have not experienced this expression and would like to - what would that story be?

Send me your pictures and stories. Share this far and wide. Let's see what might manifest. You can remain anonymous if you'd like. And if you use others' names, please be mindful of their privacy.

Blessings, Gratitude, & Safe Passage
