I love collecting Zuni fetishes. Bear is the guardian fetish of the West. He represents strength and self-knowledge and is a spiritual guide who also has supernatural powers. Bear is a powerful healing fetish. I don’t necessarily believe in this, but I don’t necessarily not believe in it either. 😉
Zuni Fetishes are believed to have inherent powers or qualities that may aid the owner. This lovely Corn Maiden represents strength, creation and wisdom. I hope even a little rubs off on me.
Research conducted at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, found the presence of flowers triggers happy emotions, heightens feelings of life satisfaction and affects social behavior in a positive way. “What’s exciting about this study is that it challenges established scientific beliefs about how people can manage their day-to-day moods in a healthy and natural way,” said Jeannette Haviland-Jones, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology at Rutgers. And here I thought they just looked pretty.
