Yule Goddess Spirit Doll

Yule Goddess Spirit Doll
The reborn Sun God held in the arms of Winter. Born into the darkness, bringing with him the hope of rebirth and growth for the coming season.

 The Sun God is also draped with Holly and Oak leaves to represent the battle between the Holly King and the Oak King at the Mid Winter Solstice.

And my friend made one with me! Although the Sun Gods are done in the same way, The dolls are totally different, with their own beauty and spirits shining through.

 What is a spirit doll?

Spirit dolls can be found all over the world in many different cultures. They can go by a variety of names such as Goddess dolls, art dolls, healing dolls or amulet dolls. They can be made of almost any material- wood, cloth, clay, stone, in various forms and can be made for almost any purpose.

In several countries in Africa, they have ‘fertility Goddess dolls’ which are prayed to not only for the safe birth of strong healthy babies but also the health and prosperity of the whole tribe.
Native American Kachina dolls which the Hopi use to embody the characters of the Kachinas, the powerful spirits of the earth, east, west, south, north, the sky and water.

What they all seem to have in common is the Goddess and femininity. Goddesses have been worshiped in Egyptian mythology, Norse, Celtic, Hinduism, Buddhism, Paganism, Gnosticism, Wicca and Christianity. African cultures, ancient India, the Caribbean and even European cultures all have sculptures and figures representing the Goddess and their history and beliefs systems. Dolls have been used as sacred items in religious ceremonies for many hundreds of years, normally made to represent the Gods/Goddesses that were worshiped.

A spirit doll can be made for any purpose. They can be an expression of Archetype or elemental energy, something you yearn or wish for, something to be used for inspiration, creativity or transformation, for protection and healing, the list really is endless. By giving the energy you wish to work with a form, you enable it to work consciously with you and you are able to have something tangible to work with, a focus for your intent, energy work and meditation. It becomes a physical representation of the energy you wish to work with or manifest. You can imbue it with your desires and hopes and it becomes a powerful tool for manifestation.
I would not recommend invoking an actual spirit/Goddess into the doll unless you are highly practiced in such things and are aware of, and prepared for, the consequences of this action.

I like to look at spirit dolls like this: Do you remember your favourite doll (or teddy, or toy) as a child? Did you whisper your secrets to it? Did you tell it your hopes and dreams and wished it could speak back to you? Did you take it everywhere with you? Did holding it give you courage or make you feel safe? That’s what you can have, on an adult level, with your spirit doll. Work with it, tell it your hopes and dreams, your fears and wishes and let the energy created between you help to manifest or banish them. The more you work with your doll, the more energy created, the stronger the link and the more powerful tool she will become to aid you in your magical workings and daily life.

 My Spirit dolls
Each doll is made to order so can take between two-four weeks to create. Payment for spirit dolls is required at time of order due to the personal aspects of the creation.Please message me for more details.
Spirit dolls: For spirit dolls I use branches and twigs, either fallen or cut responsibly, normally from my own garden, as the base of the doll. I then use wadding and fabric scraps and add beads, crystals, gems, wire, feathers, plant stuff, herbs, sigils and just about anything else that calls to me in the creation of these dolls. I use polymer clay faces and a variety of wool hair. If you have a specific requirement for your doll, for instance if you would like a special herbal blend to be added then this can be discussed. Prices will vary depending on materials used.

Resurrecting Luna!

Hello there! I am not expecting any of you to remember me, it has been soooo long since I posted, back in February was my last blog post.
It was a very horrible start to 2013 and there have been many changes in my world over the last nine months, but I am slowly getting back on track, although it is now a slightly different track in terms of this blog.
I have started making polymer clay jewellery again. I used to do this many, many years ago and after making my fairy doll earlier this year i got back into working with polymer clay. I have been selling my creations, which also incude crystal healing wands, driftwood and woodland wands on facebook and at local craft fairs and festivals all summer, along with my paintings and art work.

This blog will be mainly to showcase my creations as many people keep asking me to set up a website as they don't use facebook and want to be able to see and purchase my jewellery. I may still make random posts or show my art journal stuff  as I am still art journalling, i just don't have as much time!

Long time posting and Rockin your World

Hello there! Many of you have probably forgotten who I am as it has been about 6/7 weeks since I last blogged or visited any of your blogs. Apologies for that, all I can say is that it has been an awful start to the year in our household and as such I have not had the time, energy or inclination to blog. (I will try to get round and catch up on your blogs in the next two weeks.)
So in an effort to pull myself out of this funk that has descended upon me, I have forced myself to do my rocking post because there have been a few shining moments, nothing huge, but then it tends to be the little things that add up doesn't it? And I have to remember that all is not bad, there are lots of gratefuls to be had, they are always there even when you have to look harder to find them and that's the whole point of Virginia's Rocking your world Friday!
So here goes...

(Photo is from a phone and for some reason blogger always puts them on the wrong way, if anyone knows how to sort this out please let me know!)
 * Gathering hag stones, pebbles and shells with Paige to make hag stone talismans and then going to the forest collecting sticks and plants for more crafty makes.

 * The kids and me went to a Wassail at a friends house. I had never been to one before and it was great fun, especially as the Morris dance group that she is part of were all there performing for us! A wassail is a fruit tree, normally apple, blessing to ensure that the trees produce a good harvest later in the year.

 * A snow day!! The Island rarely gets snow even if the rest of England is covered in it, so it was wonderful to wake up to the snow and find out that both the kids schools were shut so we could go out and play.
 The kids had so much fun on their sledges! I bought them two years ago and this is the first time it has snowed since.

 When Stu got in from work they all made a snowman together. His name was Derek and it took him 5 full days to melt away!

* Going to see Damh the Bard in Southsea with fantastic friends. He was just as amazing as last year when we went and this year we got there mega early and got better seats so we could see him as well as hear him this time!

 * Receiving this wonderful 'mini me' drawing from the wonderful Carmen. It is fantastic and I think it looks just like me!

 * Getting paid for this commission really brightened my day last week.

* Starting a new pair journal with Lou over at Collabor-ART. Really looking forward to this.

 * My son turning 16. Now I know this is a grateful but i was so emotional all day at the thought that my baby is not a baby anymore (even though he hasn't been a baby in a long time!). I am so proud of him, he is such a great boy, well behaved, polite, funny, smart, etc (Biased much??) He has had a tough month this month as well for reasons I wont go into but he has handled it amazingly well. Love you Caleb!

* The amazing and wonderful WW ladies! Thank you so much for supporting me the last few weeks, things have been tough and I am so thankful for your friendship and words of wisdom. You ladies really are the best.

* A wonderful, generous act of kindness from the lovely Carmen (link on her name above), left me in tears all day last week! Carmen knows Of all my stresses at the moment through the WW group and she signed me up and paid for me to do the 'Getting started with the Gelli plate' course run by Julie Fei-Fan Balzer. I was overwhelmed by her kindness and it really has helped me pick myself up a bit this week. Thanks so much Carmen x x x

And here are some of the lush prints i made after watching all the videos on the Gelli arts course. I love how they all turned out.

* As always, I am grateful for my family. I don't know what I would do without them, always there when I need them. My hubby bends over backwards to make sure I'm ok, my kids make me smile everyday, my sister can always be counted on to call people bad names for me when I need her too (thanks Zoobs!) and my Mum and Dad have helped us enormously this month. I am also grateful to my friends, my friends that I chose to be family, thanks for everything this month, you know who you are and my online friends who have been fantastic and who I feel like I really do know in real life!!

Well, that's my rocking post. Not terribly long for 6 weeks, but its a start!
Hopefully I will be back to post next week and I will find time to catch up on all your blogs...sorry for being a bad blogger x
