A Drum Buyer’s Thoughts & Photo of Her New Hummingbird Drum

What a thrill to receive photos from a wonderful customer! Luanne, a Reiki practitioner and healer from Pennsylvania, sent along a shot of her new Hummingbird Drum.

It’s easy to see Glenn Lewis’s masterful touch with the painting of a Hummingbird amid beautiful flowers. The Hummer has always been a special symbol and friend, according to Luanne. And she liked the drum’s sound, too. Here are a few emails from her, the first having to do with the drum’s arrival, and the second recounting the special smudging ceremony she performed with it. Note that she also references her receipt of a Lightning Necklace in the package too :

Greetings, Bob:)
My Drum Partner has arrived home, safe and sound!!! Your saying that he is BEAUTIFUL is an understatement!!! I am in awe of your and Glenn’s talent. Thank you both from the bottom of my heart:) His energy is powerful! So is the energy from the necklace! They are both resting now and acclimating to their new environment. We have already bonded and are looking forward to doing energy work together.

Love, light, peace and blessings,

Here’s her second email from a day or two later:

My Drum Partner was well rested by this evening, so I used your lovely package of herbs and sweetgrass for the blessing ceremony. I attached the lightening-struck wood with emeralds, as I found this a sweet touch. Thank you:) I must say that the sound is melodious and deep. I feel the vibration in my heart and soul! We are true partners and I have you and Glenn to thank. Please accept my deepest regards. I am in awe yet again!

It fills my heart. Thank YOU, Luanne!

Aho & Namaste,
Bob

Join The New Shaman Training Class for Beginners To Start Oct. 18, 2015

Shaman Training Graphic600wThere is still a seat in the sacred circle for you in the new Shaman Training course that will begin Oct. 18, 2015. (You may find full info here.) The Autumn is a perfect season in which to begin your exploration of a greater reality that will lead you to the discovery of your authentic self and the mission of your beautiful soul for this lifetime.

Join with others of like minds, learn the healing ways and the path of shamans, and apply your new understanding to improve and empower your everyday life. You will become familiar with how to drum and thus to enter the greater realms through a shamanic journey. And then, you will meet totem animals and powerful guides in assembling a team of allies to assist your work and life in the full expression of your heart. It will be your greatest voyage of discovery.

Thanks to Andy for the photo.

Your age doesn’t matter. What does matter is that you have begun to hear the calling, to feel the rise of curiosity, to sense the hint of destiny as a healer and spiritual explorer.

Quick Overview of the Course:

It is an in-depth experiential five-month course (meets once a month) taught in Elizabethtown, KY. If you can’t attend this one, perhaps one in the future, as classes form spontaneously when at least four people have indicated interest. I like to have small classes, with a maximum of six so that I can provide individual attention to each during class. My wife assists, along with an apprentice (when available).

We would love to have you join the sacred circle.

Aho & Namaste,
Bob

Make Your Own Shamanic Tools For Powerful Spiritual Healing

 

Using your hands to help your heart
There’s nothing like making your own sacred shamanic helper tools.

I’m gradually adding more and more focus with Thunder Valley Drums on helping you to make your own shaman and spiritual gear. There is nothing more satisfying— and empowering— than making something with your own hands from the gifts of Mother Earth.

During healing ceremonies and while connecting with Spirit in your own way, these things you make just naturally fit better in your hand, are imbued with your own special energy and medicine, and are infinitely more capable of helping you to more quickly accomplish your goals because you know their history, know their place of origination, and you can thus feel and guide their energy better. They are your tools. A healer’s tools.

So I have begun offering kits you can assemble yourself, as well as writing a series of eBooks and booklets with step-by-step instructions for aiding you in making your own shaman gear, including suggested ceremonies and other activities you may want to
incorporate into your items to energize and attune them with you.

Oh sure, I put great love into the things I make for you. I know no other way. That was part of my original vow to service, which I continue to hold to quite joyously. That was a life changing event! Further, I realize that many people truly don’t have the means to make some of their tools, and that is why I continue to make and offer such things as shamanic drums and worked wooden expressions. Modern life sometimes places people in small city apartments, and who has room for a table saw? Moreover, the chances of finding a lightning-struck limb or tree are mighty slim if you live in the desert. Many customers overseas prefer some things that are American made or grown, too. Great!

But many things require nothing more than a counter top or the kitchen table in order to make them, no matter where you live. And that’s where I’m beginning to place emphasis. You can make such things as medicine bag necklaces, items for your circle and altar, wrapping a special feather for your drum or other use, making a spirit shield— goodness sakes, I could go on and on. The point, though, is that you will be amazed at the difference when you make it yourself.

Here are a few links to the free articles and some very inexpensive eBooks and booklets you can use to get you going. And once you find out how thrilling, how deeply spiritual, how invigorating and yes, how inexpensive it is to make your own shaman gear, you’ll need not depend on someone else, including me, from then on. You will be exploring a deep and wonderful part of yourself and of Spirit that can yield great revelations.

Start with something small, and you’ll instantly see what I mean. After all, Creation itself started small. And just look at how beautiful and expansive its handiwork has become! Its perfection is everywhere if you look for it. You can start by peering into a mirror!

Bright blessings to you and to all of those around you, seen and unseen, here and there, All That Is.

Aho & Namaste,
Bob
