MAKING A MAGICKAL MEDICINE BAG

Native Americans and witches throughout Europe were known to carry special pouches filled with unique items such as stones, herbs, animal feathers, hair, bones and claws. The objects were chosen for their hidden natural powers. Those with no powers were infused through ritual workings and then carried to attract positive energy and repel negative energy. They were also expected to affect the root psychic causes of illnesses and thereby eliminate them.
