The vibration of the shamanic handcraft
Picture this: A crackling fire with people gathered around it. The conversations are low-key or they sing. They are in unison, in the same room with their hands busy. Often it was women, but men also ended up here, sooner or later. The craft has fallen into oblivion with many, but not with me. Here it lives to a very high degree and it creates community both in the family and with the course participants who time and time again return to the course center to manufacture something.
When it happens, we always get a nice, harmonious atmosphere to enjoy. Sometimes it is quiet and the only thing that is heard are the sounds of the craft. All of a sudden, someone starts talking about something and the conversation gets a harmonious flow. We often come to insight without even making an effort.
Sometimes someone starts singing (usually me) and one by one tunes into the song. First quiet, then louder and louder. Sometimes the song falls silent and we all experience a moment of reverence. Sometimes it ends with healing laughter.
The craft centered the person and created a less stress. Today we know through research that a lot of wonderful endorphins etc. are released during eg crochet or knitting. Just like when running. In addition to this, a vibration is created in us that brings us closer to our ancestors and ancestors. We slip beyond time and space and feel not only in harmony with the people in the room, but also with those who no longer walk the Path of Life with us.
We also get to be involved and create something that brings memories and positive energy to the person who receives our creations.
