EAGLE - SPIRIT
The feathers of Eagle are considered to be the most sacred of healing tools. They have been used for centuries by shamans to cleanse the auras of patients coming to them for healing. Within the belief systems of Native American tribes, Eagle represents a state of grace acheived through hard work, understanding, and a completion of the tests of inititaion which result in the taking of one's personal power. It is only through the trial of experiencing the lows in life as well as the highs, and through the trial of trusting one's connection to the Great Sprit, that the right to use the essence of Eagle medicine is earned.
