A medicine shield is something you wear or have near you to remind you of the medicine or gifts you wish to invite into your life. The shield itself is in the shape of a circle, symbolising that life is a circle and nothing ever really ends, it is just reborn. The feathers symbolise a connection to spirit and the tiny pieces of wood a connection and caring for mother earth. The shield is a symbol of protection and contains 16 segments, each one represents one of the 16 directions. The four main directions are East, South, West and North, symbolising the four fold system of man, mental, emotional, physical and spiritual and how the balancing of these four directions brings inner peace and grace. The segmenting of these four directions have further meanings.
Wear this pendant for protection, spiritual connection in a grounded way and for balance of all that you are.
