Spirit dolls, blessing & healing totems
Healing dolls, hearts, eggs, and totems are created with specific intentions and people at heart
These healing dolls, eggs, hearts and totems are needle-felted.
The 'heart' of the doll or totum contains prayers, blessings, and offerings such as crystals, herbs and plants, and other natural materials chosen specifically for the recipient and, or, their healing intent.
This ancient art was learnt with respect and gratitude to my teacher Julia Ingles. I encourage her to visit her website for her beautiful heart-felt work at Sacred Familiar and I highly recommend taking a course with her.
These totems and dolls are created intuitively. Each totem or doll takes 6-40+ hours to birth themselves in their own unique ways.
They range from $55-$120 for a bespoke totem, and $120-$220 for a bespoke doll.
Dolls and totems ready for blessing new homes are noted below.
The consent and healing intent is the only marker of who they will be; they grow into themselves and reveal themselves in their own time... They are created with a specific intent in mind and with special orders, they are focussed on you and your personal intent.
It's a journey creating these dolls and totems, they come into dreams and meditations. I use the Natural Systems Thinking Process model to tune-in my sensory receptors to the plant and other choices. I do not plan for them to have symbols, tattoos and markings, face or no-face, colour, style, hair and clothing... Most of the wool used is Australian hand-dyed corriedale and merino.
Please complete this FORM for your custom-made totem or doll. All work is intuitive creative expression, not thinking and planning to create. It is most important is you consider your intent and healing which is then embedded within this doll or totem, rather than what you want the 'end-product' to look like. You can view the gallery to get an idea of styles.
You will be contacted when completed and your details confirmed before mailing.
Your doll/totem will arrive in the mail (Australia only) with information about:
the materials inside your totem
the healing intent and other info
The dolls and totems are made with nature, with plant material, other natural materials and often a wire pipe-cleaner. These are not children or pets toys and most likely will not survive rough play. Please see Sun-Moon Blessing Doll without so many features that could be damaged or cause a child a hazard. I would encourage a child not to put in their mouth. Being natural, dolls and totems are intended over time to return to nature. Moths may eat them, they may be so loved they start to fall apart. They may be gifted to someone else, left in nature, floated down a river, gifted to a mountain, or buried when you feel they have served the healing or purpose you needed.
Healing dolls and totems come alive in our hands with us focusing on the intent and healing medicine they provide. You may wish to work on changing their clothes or features with needle felting or other crafting if they get old and tired.
