Shaman Rattles made of hide

…. a Shaman 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 spirit helpers 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 shaman rattle, we recommend to make a “journey” for the purpose of getting to know the Spirit within the Rattle.

Shamanic Karma Sutra Rattles

….. 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

….. 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.

Hello  Susanne and Erik,

I received the Shaman Rattle today and… it is a real gem! I love it, love the colour, love the sound, love the handle which fits perfectly in my hand and above all love the magical energy!!! It takes me in no time in another world, no more thinking just being! Like meeting a very good friend… even better…

When I saw the Rattle the first time (on your website) I knew it was special and it was as if it called me… so it arrived at his final destination, his home. I will keep and cherish it for the rest of my days!

Thank you so much for all the love and attention that you put into making this beautiful Shamanic tools! Wish you can do this for still a very long time so that many people can enjoy these wonderful things you make!

Wish you all the best and more then 1.000x Thank You! You are both really blessed! 🙏🙏🙏

Blessings,
Françoise Belgium.


Dear Susanne & Erik,
The Shaman Rattle “Sun Gazing Wolf” has found its way home! :o) What a beautiful shamanic creation! I love everything about it: the way the shaman rattle head is formed, with the sun spiral painted on it, the wolf fur and its smell, the wonderfully moulded handle..and above all: the spirit around it. It feels very familiar to hold it in my hand, just like a part of my own body. I do also like the rattling sound of it. To make a long story short: it’s a perfect guide to the spiritual dimension and I feel honoured to be its guardian.

Thank you from heart for making me so happy with this little creature! It means a lot to me. Thank you!
be blessed, both of you!
Simone, Passau, Germany

Dear Susanne, dear Erik
Mahakala has arrived today !!! I must say, this is my most wonderful shamanic rattle I have of yours although I love all my rattles of yours 🙂

This will be deeply transformative too as it arrives on the blue electric eagle energy from today, which is also my birth Maya Kin.

There are stunning synchronicities between Mahakala Spirit and me as I am also an artist and an artisan. Like Mahakala.

With all my gratitude to have created this miraculous wonder rattle, a powerful paraphernalia for my shamanic healing work !!!

Sending you all my love from Germany to Denmark,

I also thank you for the incense, of course I immediately gave blessings and a very warm welcome to Mahakala,

Now she is resting with the other rattles, the red twin rattles MOTHER EARTH and THE POWER OF THE WOMAN,

which I use for all invocation and opening each ceremony and healing session, I always sing while I do my healing,

the JOURNEY INTO CONSCIOUSNESS Snake-Spirit Rattle, which is a very strong tool for Shamanic Object Doctoring

The small DANCING SHAMAN rattle which I use for Powersongs and Healing Arts, and now MAHAKALA !!!

THANK YOU SO MUCH

Hi Erik and Susanne,
Thank you so much for this exquisite shaman rattle. I am in love! I also want to thank you for your warm encouragement and support and for sharing ways to connect and welcome my new friend.

I just saw your video on Instagram of your kitchen and it is so beautiful. One day I will have to try your smudges and teas! The juniper you sent me smells divine!
Have a beautiful day!
Love and light, Melissa, New York, USA

We have received the Mandala journey rattle and Instantly connected with it. It had a very light and tranquil energy and seems to work along most of the chakras. I have meditated and performed a ritual with it yesterday and today I slept all day, totally exhausted. So it did something quite spectacular. I feel clean and pure and full of energy with a clear mind. Incredible handicraft as well, as the other rattle. Very grateful, thank you.

I have never touched or used rattles that come even close to the “energy” and power of yours. 
I have my eyes set on a drum ☺️
Have a great day!

Kind regards, Dan, Helsingborg, Sweden.

Dear Susanne & Erik,
I am writing with much gratitude about the arrival of my Shaman Drum “Snowy Owl and The Shaman Rattle “Grace”, as well as the beautiful drum stick, that feels just right in my hand, and has a nice felted head with lovely dual-colored locks attached. Everything was wrapped in a gorgeous velvet bag and securely packaged.
The Juniper smudge, you sent, was lit to welcome the spirits and to guide them here and home.

Today is a very hot summer day and snowy owl graced us with her cool blessings. Grace has a crisp sound, that matches beautifully.
When I started drumming, we went far into distant lands, where time and gravity no longer exist and we enjoyed a cool breeze, one we earthlings will still anticipate down here for a few more days.
Interestingly Planet Mercury entered the sign of Leo today, shifting from the watery and sensitive sign of Cancer into the forward thinking fire sign of Leo, which encourages us to seperate from anything that feels stagnant and in favor of expansion.
The arrival was exquisitly timed by the spirits, as Mercury’s entrance into Leo will promote literally sacred, spirited communication as well as fierce, creative expression.
Thank you so much for these wonderful tools, they will be steady companions from now on.

Dear Susanne and Erik,
This work of yours again leaves me without words and I am in love with your newest shamanic artwork.
A true blessing as a powerful piece of spiritual paraphernalia, the „Journey into Consciousness“.
Although I love all the very special items – I have meanwhile a stunning selection – from you !!!
On Top of the shamanic Artwork I appreciate the warm collaboration and the trustworthiness.
My Shaman Rattle „Journey into Consciousness“ has arrived safely today and it snuggles already with the „Dancing Shaman“ Rattle.
Both of them will go with me to Seattle this summer where I join the newest three year program with the Foundation for Shamanic Studies USA. The Rattlesnake issue is a main important spirit helper of mine.
Thank you both for your magic creations !!!
Many greetings from Germany to both of you,
Jessica Sánchez-Palencia, Stuttgart, Germany, Phoenix Dance®

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!

Hello and good evening to you both,
 Your wonderful Shamans Rattle ” The Black Raven” arrived today, wahoo! I wasn’t expecting it for another week or so, I am glad that it worked out. I have a Shamanic healing ceremony tomorrow, and I am excited to begin working with it.

Hi Erik & Susanne,

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
