This larger dream amulet is carved into a detailed Raven's head. Ravens have strong associations with the Celtic God Bran who has both underworld and solar connections and they also have further links with water and prophecy. The wood is holly which entwined with wild vine as it grew, forming a natural twist which is visible on the head of the raven. Holly is considered to represent life as it is green all year round. It is also a masculine tree of warrior magick and spiritual strength. It calls upon the seeker to recognise inner strengths.
The raven 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 dependant on size and preferred style as many pieces would be too chunky for the purpose - if this is your wish 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 Raven 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.
