Prayer Bundles: A carver/owner will often adorn a fetish with beads and/or arrowheads as a sign of appreciation and affection to the fetish. The more care and respect a fetish is given, the more powerful their influence will be towards their owner. Traditionally fed cornmeal, with or without crushed turquoise added and kept either in a pot or pouch.
Marble is used to give clarity, power of self-control and mastery of thought. It enriches the powers of tranquility. It can furnish common sense in matters of the home, heart and one’s constitution. Permits total recollection of dreams as well as providing protection, stability and structure both in the physical and emotional mind. May motivate your artistic ventures. It is a very grounding stone, supporting one to learn fortitude and practicality when it is most needed. Facilitates those who have trouble finding clarity and focus, which also helps one to hold deeper states of meditation.
Picasso Marble, sometimes called Picasso Jasper, has strong metaphysical characteristics of grounding and calming. It supports in the growth of creativity, as well as stimulating strength and self-discipline.
