Musician’s Pouch

 

 

CD PouchWell, here is the little pouch that should accompany the Steer Horn Rattle (see previous post) and will hold the CD, that inspired me to attempt this project:

I used European Wild Boar leather and Deer leather as these would have been skins that the Ancients had available to them through hunting. The thread is smoked sinew. Then there are a few bone beads and a smoky quartz crystal.

The Spirit in the centre might have been carved from bone of the very same wild Steer/ Ourochs that the Horn Rattle was created from. And sure, I added a little bone Bear, for the protection that the ancient Bear Mother affords us all.

Feathers are Red Tailed Hawk and Raven

Loooook into the Flame!

Flame open eye meditation/ trance:

Back in our ritual room, were instructed to sit still in front of our small flame, fed by sesame oil,

– to look into the flame.

– Un-blinking

– Focus!

The very air surrounding us and moving the flame is the air our Ancestors were breathing. There is no other.

– Focus!

– NO blinking,

– Even when tears start to flow……

I have no idea, if tears started to flow.

At some point the flickering light became the central fire in the large Clan Tzartan of my Ancestors……

.On the wide open Reindeer pastures of North Western Tuva……

stood at the fire.

I stood on my braids, which were sooooo long, they reached the floor.

Through them I was rooted to the land of my Ancestors.

One of the female Elders, Moon Child’s Auntie, was drumming right behind me.

There was a pot of Reindeer stew hanging on the wooden tripod over the flames. I was offered a plate and Es’ lahi fed me with a horn spoon…..

Tears of joy and happiness flowed down my cheeks!

I was HOME!

I was SOOOOO happy!

Then at the same time there was movement in the ritual room – and singing drifting in and out of the vision… Bhola and the group….

In and out…

I was at 2 places at the same time……

My Sister’s Tail:

 

Healing Earth Tarot:

 

Woman of Wands:

 

My Sister’s Tail:


A beautiful middle aged woman with a mane of red hair stands confidently in a circle of red and purple flames emerging

from a volcano behind her. She wears a rather sexy outfit and holds a spear. Next to her stands a Leopard. A Lion and a Tiger watch from above, while a band of gray smoke shows dancing and jumping Deer, reminiscent of the Scythian Deer      Spirits found in the Kurgans of Kostromskaya.

 In the light of the late morning sun plays with the gray, beige brown and dark dots of this half     circle, bringing it alive and –

instantaneously I have to think of my sister and her Leopard’s tail, now hanging close to her picture on our family Altar.

We are strong women! We have fire!

I will put this picture next to Mausi’s on the Altar.

. and sing a little chant for E’eren Omsür……
