Lilac Spirit Rattle
The Lilac Spirit Rattle is in one way separate from the others in this collection because its genesis was a beautiful, fragrant lilac bush instead of a bountiful gourd patch. It is kin nonetheless because of a shared spiritual purpose and ability to provide voice to prayer, song, meditation and ceremony.
The Lilac Spirit’s voice does not compete with the other rattles’ here because it is meant more to serve as a very personal companion for you . Its diminutive sound --comprised of a few remnants of Kentucky creek stones and sand plus a few emerald chips-- does not overwhelm the mind, will not interfere with your voice or thoughts, does not require a lot of energy to play. Rather, the voice soothes, blends with the background, implores the senses to relax and simply…be, even in ceremony with another person.
Being small does not equate to being weak though. The Lightning Wood bead and copper clutch bead provide requsite energy when necessary for spiritual illumination, rejuvenation and restoration in ceremony, as I have extensively written about elsewhere on the site and relating to my own practice. You can easily perceive these things if you watch and listen to the video about the Lilac Spirit Rattle on this page. It whispers the spirit of life.
Aho & Namaste,
