Absolutely gorgeous fan, I am so grateful I was lead to it. I don’t even want to use it, just stare at it 😂 Beautiful loving energy emanates from it. So carefully packed and arrived much faster than what I expected. Thank you for this sacred art, may your hands always be blessed Mari 🙏🏽

I can not even begin to describe the presence and energy this fan has brought into my life. If you are drawn to Mari's shop, it is for a purpose. This fan chose me and I am so incredibly grateful for the amazing healing session with Mari that came with the fan. Thank you Mari for so freely letting Spirit flow through you in your creations as well as in my session and healing, incredible gifts to this world.

Meet my “Colliope”... I practice Shamanic Energy Healing and I’m always VERY selective about what I bring into my Shaman “toolbox”, and when you know something is meant to be yours - you just know! My girl was created with love, blessings & Reiki healing before being shipped to Clearwater, FL from Vancouver - I am in awe of the craftsmanship! Mari put an amazing amount of love & care into this masterpiece who she lovingly refers to as her “daughter” and who she named after the Greek muse. She even handcrafted the packaging specifically for this piece - it’s beyond impressive and there really are no words... Whenever I pick her up my dog & cat will trail after me - especially if I’m smudging - they love the good juju and she undoubtedly brings lots of it! Appreciating you Mari!
Working with Spirit
From a child, I have been extremely creative, and also sensitive to invisible energies around people, objects, animals and plants. Now as an adult working as a Psychic Medium and Reiki Master, I communicate with my Spirit Guides on their guidance and inspiration when creating a smudging fan.
Every material used in creating a smudging fan has made its way to me. Whether it is a walk along a riverbed where clean branches appear in front of me, or a feather found while walking in the woods. Sometimes, materials come to me through friends who pass along something they’ve found, or I’m lead to objects in an art store by my Spirit Guides. I never know how a smudging fan would turn out in the end; I simply trust the creative flow and let the magic happen.
After completing each smudging fan, I take them through a blessing ceremony where I burn sage to clear the energy. I then burn sweetgrass to infuse it with abundance for the new owner. Reiki (a Japanese healing modality) is then applied to seal the energy that has been put into the fan.
