A small hole in the bottom of Riverkeeper holds a cloth for collecting drops of sacred water. A beautiful way to carry the water essence from any sacred site or ceremony. Leave the cloth in place. As the water wicks into her body she holds the living vibration and magnetism of each place and experience. 3" tall, comes with small messages including the words below, along with a blessing from Grandmother Agnes Baker Pilgrim of the International Council of 13 Indigenous Grandmothers and instructions for collecting sacred water. Partial proceeds from the sale of this sculpture are donated to Grandmother Aggie.
Dearly Beloved, Creator of All, Creator of the Great Mystery, Breathe your healing breath onto these carriers of good medicine so they touch those who hold them and manifest peace in their hearts for themselves and the world. Beloved, with your help we pray for Our Earth Mother’s blood. The precious water all over the world needs us to thank it for all life. We know water can hear, so every human being can give prayers of thanks and talk to the water. Grandfather, include this with the Riverkeeper totems so they embody this prayer. It is done Aho!

"The water can hear you, bring your voice! Pour your heart into the river. Say "Thank you, I love you, I promise to care for you...
With purest intention, may all water be BLESSED, restoring it to life sustaining balance. You are the river!"
