This petite dream amulet is carved into a detailed Crow's head. Crows are considered to be birds of prophecy and visions. Like the shaman, they are said to look with one eye into the conscious world and with one eye into the inner world and see beneath the surface. The crow is carved from locally gathered mistletoe which was considered to be sacred to the Druids. Mistletoe was once known as "Druad-las" meaning "the Druid's plant" and traditionally was cut from the sacred oak at midwinter. The ogham name for oak is "Duir" which is the root of the words "Druid" and "door" as the the tree is the doorway to the Otherworld.
The Crow is very tactile. It has not been crafted with the intention of being worn as jewellery although some customers do choose to wear pieces as necklaces. Suitability would be dependent on size and preferred style as many pieces would be too chunky for the purpose - please check you're happy with the size before purchase. Its primary purpose is for hanging near the bed for a dream charm or holding during sleep or meditation. It has a hole for hanging and is supplied with leather or cotton cord thonging - if you have a preference please add a note in the message box during checkout.
The crow is filled with yarrow, grasses and white clover, all carefully gathered from the ancient, sacred prehistoric mound of Silbury Hill in southern England. Hedge-gathered herbs considered sacred to the Druids are also added to the mix - mugwort, vervain, enchanter's nightshade, bluebell, juniper, knapweed, heather flowers, lavender and mistletoe. The herbs are permanently sealed inside with a protective plug of blackthorn.
Yarrow brings its strong associations with clairvoyance and powers to promote divination. Lavender is a powerful herb which brings peace, harmony and encourages positive thought and restful sleep. Vervain is a sacred cleansing and purification herb. Juniper has strong associations with healing and mistletoe is added for its traditional connections with Druids. Mugwort has been used for millennia to aid clairvoyance, lucid dreaming and astral projection. Our ancestors drank tea made from the leaves and it has also been used in incenses or smoked to induce visions.
This amulet is infused with the energies of this potent ancient herb blend from inside and will make an excellent guide to aid you on your dream journeys.
