A Note from the Healer who is now united with the uNtamed Heart Drum ...


Hi Shaman Bob,,

    Wow!!!! Wow!!! Wow!!!! I Love it!!! How amazing!!! Thank you for creating this Blessing of Healing.  Thank you for the beautiful lightening struck pendant and for all the additions---the bells, beads and bark! 


You will laugh...the worry dolls hid in plain site from me until this morning!!!  I love it. 


I am looking forward to my continued bonding process with this sacred drum.  It truly has a joyous energy about it!  I absolutely love it.  You packed it perfectly.  It arrived in pristine condition. 


I will wear the lightening pendant whenever I work with the drum. I think that whenever I wear the lightening pendant, I will be connected to the energies of the drum. 


Thank you so much!!! I am grateful to you for creating this divine drum and I look forward to talking with you and meeting in person with you and your wife in the future. 


Blessings. -- Arizona
