Sacred feather prayer fans are an ancient tradition that spans many cultures and nations. Sacred prayer fans are used to help dispatch prayers to the heavens, and are considered to hold great healing power. Sacred prayer fans can also be used when smudging or cleansing a space, to bless a person or space, to give gratitude, and during healing work.
Macaw feathers used in these fans are naturally shed from birds in a free-flighted aviary.

Bridge Quartz, also sometimes called Inner Child Quartz, frequently has a certain cheer to them and help us to connect seemingly disparate worlds. This can mean anything from connecting the spiritual and physical worlds, to inner and outer self, to assisting in seeing another’s point of view that differs from our own. In some ways this is the peacemaker quartz as it is quite capable of assisting us in understanding and ‘bridging’ between the world that is familiar to us, and that to which we have no understanding.
Each sacred prayer fan is handmade and just as no two feathers are alike so is every fan unique. Sacred prayer fans are a wonderful healing tool with a myriad of uses that can blend with any tradition or background.
Please note that all fans use domestic bird feathers, as it is illegal to sell or possess feathers from birds of prey.
