Musing on The Shaman’s Staff


The first time I held a Shaman Staff, it felt like holding an antenna between the three worlds, connecting upper-middle-under worlds through my body.

Instead of using the drum, the staff works as well to make a trance-journey between the worlds.

The form of the staff is partly a matter of personal taste and insight, partly inspired by others from the three worlds

Insights/inspirations so far, stated in symbolic sayings:

  • Letting go of my ingrained patterns of behavior, feelings, thoughts.
  • Connecting my main Staff with the minor staves.
  • Keeping my channels of communication clean.
  • Engraving a spiraling pattern along the Staff lenghtwise
  • Crowning the Staff with an Eagle.
  • Using a Wolfs Head as an helmet.
