innerSpirit Raku Rattles
Infused with the joy of a small child's treasure hunt, the wabi-sabi aesthetic of a Japanese tea master, and a powerul gratitude from the vast Chihuahuan Desert, artist John Davis created innerSpirit Rattles to honor the treasure hunts his young daughters would go on. The hollow middle and puffy hard clay shell make innerSpirit Rattles the perfect carrier for a harvest of deep gratitude that flows from the remote and peaceful desert where they are made.
Go ahead. Pick up an innerSpirit Rattle. Cup it in the palm of your hand. Focus on its weight. Now give it a shake. Did you feel that? Of course you did! Your shoulders just relaxed. That's stress leaving your body. Naturally. Now for the biggie . . . think of one thing for which you are grateful. Feel it - your heart and your head just pushed your worries aside. Use this rattle as a tool. Make some funky music. Shake to the rhythm of your favorite song... or to the beat of your own drum. Use it to rattle your worries away or just to keep your papers from blowing astray.
Science has proven that focusing on the present moment, not worrying about the past or the future helps bring calm. The practice of mindfulness is not so much about being happy, but being at peace with what you can and cannot change, and being grateful for the positive.
Gift boxed with a story card that reads: American Indians used rattles to ensure blessings upon their crops. Use your rattle to help rattle some rain into your life, some rain out of your life, to rattle your worries away, or (if you insist) just to keep your papers from blowing astray. Shake to the rhythm of your favorite music, or the beat of your own drum.
