A Native American Medicine Pouch holds items believed to protect or give spiritual powers to its owner and is traditionally made of leather. Its contents will be of particular meaning to the owner.
In the Native American tradition, each bag would contain an item from the 4 ‘kingdoms’ plant animal, mineral and human. It would certainly contain something pertaining to the owner’s totem animal.
The Medicine Pouch is a sacred item and can worn around the neck, close to the heart. It can also be carried on a belt, in a pocket, briefcase or handbag, in your car, or even put under your pillow at night. It should never touch the ground and prayers or rituals would usually accompany the opening of the pouch
By keeping it close you are connecting with your spiritual self and helping yourself on your healing journey.
