Shaman Rattles made of hide:
 

Like the Shamans Drum a Shamanic Rattle has a soul or Is Animated.
For thousands of years the rattle has been used
to comfort crying babies or to heal the wounded warrior.
A shaman rattle is a very personal tool
, that will cooperate in accordance to your intention.

Some rattles are like the wind turning the leaves on the trees or like the breath of nature!  Others are like the sea or the rushing within the blood, - or like the sound of a running creek or a crackling fire - Sounds that will bring us closer to the spirits between worlds and of nature !

My process when creating a Rattle - or any of the other tools involves a deep shamanic connection with the spirit world - and the different spirits within the material. Spirit of the wood, spirits of the hide / skin, spirits of the feathers - as well as the essence or shamanic symbolic meaning, that I experience in
the seeds, crystals, stones, bones or seashells.
All this is an incredible process, where one immerse / journey into the material, or the spirits of the material will just talks to me. Meaning e.g. that sometimes a Rattle will ask for a special filling or feather.
The uniting of the different materials causes a transformation. The melting together of the material is "The birth of a new Essence". The tool becomes alive, souled and
together it will constitute the whole.

My shaman rattles are known to have their own unique energy and the same goes for their sound.
When you work with the Rattles in a state of changed consciousness you can experience an incredible sound universe. It´s possible to experience that the same rattle,  from time to time have a different sound, during the shamanic work and depending on your shamanic work.
A Rattle can be used in many ways ! The primary thing is, with what intension you are working with
and that you invite the spirit of the Rattle to participate with the same intension
.
You can use a rattles for shamanic journeys, for calling spirits and power animals, to compliment your healing work or as the Shaman's tool when working with Tribal Dance or Singing Seidr - or you can start your day by giving yourself a "Rattle shower"
To be familiar with your rattle, we recommend to make a "journey" for the purpose of getting to know the Spirit of the rattle.

Shamanic Karma Sutra Rattles

Kama Sutra is an ancient illustrated Hindu love text dealing with the art of Lovemaking as a way to unite with the spiritual world.
The unification of Gods and Goddesses on ancient Hindu sandstone reliefs, and on many of the old Tibetan Tanga Paintings illustrates, besides the love act, the divine union and fusion of the Gods’ and Goddesses’ virtues. 
These relics of sculptures and texts recount that we, through the love act, can reach ecstacy and that we can be reconciled with the spiritual world.

Sexual energy is the source of all life – It is creativity. It is creation.
In the act of love we can let go of our egos and unite body, mind, and spirit.
The Lovemaking allows us to open and unite with the Wholeness.

Access to the Source of Life, playing, creativity, and creation is essential for us to be living human beings. 

I have created these Shaman Rattles with old Kama Sutra Illustrations, with the focus and intention that they in shamanic practices and for healing purposes may be used to set free the sexual energy and vitality. 

These Shamanic Rattles contain and are composed of differently-scented aphrodisiac seeds, and bark with scent and spirit, so that they may nourish the senses and invite the merging of body, mind, and spirit.
A Gate into the universe of Wholeness.

Connected Shaman Rattles
 :

My ideas for the creations of new "tools" often spring from a need that arises during my shamanic work. For journeying. Healing, song, dance and rituals, I have often felt the need to have a Rattle in each hand, preferably with different sounds. This has given me the idea to create these Rattles, that have different sounds as well as energies and at the same time they are linked.

Different Shamanic Rattles

 

When creating a shamans rattle in a shamanic way and as the old shamans did, it is done in cooperation with spirits helpers and power animals.
It is as if you are drawing on a source of creativity from the other 3 worlds, the worlds which the shamans
visit on their journeys. From these sources, we receive ideas to many of our shamanic rattles and even ideas for new rattles that have not been seen earlier.
The handles used for our rattles are found on "shamanistic walks" in nature. Absolutely unique pieces of wood appear on our way and not rarely they meet us with a message of how the further creation of a shaman rattle must take place.
Especially for those rattles that are not made with rawhide, we experience that we are helping to create new shamanic rattles - with new sounds -
Sounds that can open doors to different shamanistic universes. Sounds that can support the shaman in his healing work.

"Northern Light Singing Ball" Rattles:
An old shamanic healing tool with the sound of Aurora.

It is told that they have the same sound as the Northern Light when it is singing - and old Shamans refer to this sound as a very special song from the sky of the frosty night in the North - as the sound of divine bells.
"Northern Light Singing Balls" has been a healing tool reserved for the women among the Saami people of Finland.
Here united with Moose Antler, that serves as "Earth Anchor", and which lets the tones of healing flow.

Dear Susanne,

My Shaman Rattle has arrived! When I unpacked it, I felt like I was welcoming home a dear friend. Your exquisite craftsmanship takes my breath away and the rattle resonates with the deep shamanic prayers with which you brought it to life. It is my great honor to be the keeper of such a tool.
Truly, thank you with all my heart!

Hi Susanne,

Rattles arrived yesterday and they are truly beautiful!
Thank you so much for packing them so well.
With deep gratitude and appreciation,
Robert, Queensland, Australia

 


Dear Susanne,

 
your package arrived on Thursday already! Two days from you to me - wow!
Actually, it's difficult to find words for describing my feelings when unwrapping the box, but I'll try it. Both rattles are absolutely beautiful with a strong energy and magic aura emanating from them.
When I saw the one you've created for me - the "Water-healing"-rattle - it made me smile and gave me a wonderfully warm feeling inside.
The "Tundra Horses" made me cry..not in a dramatic sense, but it felt like getting in touch with a very old, dear and familiar friend..a creature I must have known back in ancient times. This rattle is very, very special! I'd say it's an extraordinary work of art with all its special pieces of material and how you've melted them together to bear that creature - but it simply doesn't do justice for what it means to me.
Thank you so much for giving birth to those wonderful rattle-beings. It's an extraordinary talent you have. Thank you!
 
Be blessed,
Simone - Germany

 

Dear Erik and Susanne, 

My beautiful singing ball made its way home to me today and it is even more special than I could have imagined. 
I am thrilled with it and am enjoying getting to know it. Thank you so much for creating such a wonderful piece. 
Thank you also for the extra gifts, they are much appreciated. 
Much love and gratitude for all that you do. 

Karen- Dublin Ireland.

 


Good day Susanne and Erik,

So, the rattle has arrived and it made itself right at home; after a night on the windowsill to wake up under the stars, and some dancing and singing the next evening, it really seems as though the Aurora Rattle has brought together the other five of my own-made shamanic rattles into a very nice and happy, united family!
Thank you very much!

Dear Suzanne
 
This rattle has such a clear voice, she speaks in this world and in that of the spirits, calling to my spirit allies of the tundra. She brings the gift of connection, of re-membering our selves and speaking from our hearts. Her blue is of the skies and the element of air, that element which carries the memory of every word ever spoken and every song ever sung. I am blessed to have a rattle with such spirit. 
 
Many thanks for bringing this rattle into being,
With blessings,
 
Sarah Devon  UK.


 .....  I just received my Rattle, and all I can say is WOW!!  
The energy is awe inspiring and began humming through me immediately upon having the package in my hand.  My insides were, and still are, humming and vibrating as I opened the box and took it out.  I just sat and closed my eyes feeling it's healing spirit.  When I began to shake it, this feeling and energy just radiated outward.
Please pass on my deep gratitude to the one who made the Rattle and for all of you who are a part, even in the smallest way, of its creation and delivery to me. When working with the amazing rattle, please know that I have put out the intention that some of the healing, love and light be passed to all of you to guide you and aid you on your journey.
 
Thank you for this absolutely amazing tool on my shamanic journey!!! 
Sharon - Lynnwood, WA. USA
