Gaia Spirit or Prayer sticks, also known as earth totems, are used as tools & symbols of higher communication. Indigenous people, especially Native Americans have used them for centuries. Gaia sticks are extensions of energy. They receive, direct, and channel energy. They are used to draw forth & give expression for healing, protection, purification, creation and cleansing. The significant symbolic nature of Gaia sticks reflects ritual, transition, transformation, passage, new beginnings, and endings.
The energies of the materials: wood, furs, feathers, shells, crystals, bones, skins, beads and so forth combine into a composite essence giving the Gaia totem its unique spirit. Gaia Spirit Sticks dynamically empower life.
