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
