Creating a Protective Talisman - Resguardo

  • Ukhu Pacha Healing & Inquiry Space 1501 Washington Avenue Albany, CA 94706 (map)

A resguardo (pronounced res-war-doe) is a protective talisman that is simple to make and by wearing it on your body, out in the world, it is a very powerful way to keep you from absorbing other people's energy.

The resguardo, from shamanic Peruvian tradition, is made from fur, feathers, bone, teeth or any medicine substance you have from an animal ally. it should be worn on the right side of your body, either in your pocket, or in a white pouch. When worn in this way, it will protect the wearer from many types of energetic "dano" (literally "damage"). When you are not wearing it for protection, it should be kept on the left side (campo ganadero) of your mesa, on your own altar or in a place of spiritual significance.

All items will be provided to create this small power-object but you will be required to bring a piece of your power animal with you (for example, a feather, bit of fur, a tooth/bone - small!)...I have a collection of items, so contact me to see if I have a bit of what you seek. Otherwise, we can imagine it...and use that intention in the bundle.

This work is done with the assistance of the Pachakuti Mesa - a shamanically charged mesa. You may bring an item to put on the mesa if you like, and take it home super-charged.
