This amulet was created for the devotees and children of Santa Muerte, our Mother of Death. Of course, this is only possible after completing one full year of prayers while growing and tending to sacred marigold flowers on Her shrine. Every amulet is imbued with the blessings of Santa Muerte.
Unlike other canonized iconography of Santa Muerte, this piece draws upon the energy of the vulture rather than the owl. She holds the sphere of our reality and material world in Her hand as well as the scythe. On the reverse of the amulet there are two sigils. One is an eye of consciousness within the circles of reality. This ritually prepares the wearer to see more clearly the fleeting nature of life into the embrace of death. The blurring of the lines between our living bodies and the eternal now. Below this reads S.M. and H.D. which is an abbreviation of Santa Muerte, Holy Death. The final sigil opens the crossroads between life and death, material and astral, the eye and the Eye, the spirit and the blood. Tread the path to the underworld and die before you die under the loving robes of Death.
It offers protection in dangerous situations through connection with Our Mother. In many ways, this amulet pulls us all closer to a relationship with Santa Muerte and therefore Her entire kingdom. The amulet acts in much the same way a hagstone does. Wearing it gives you eyes to see the spirits moving. The kingdom of the dead, the spirits of our ancestors, fallen friends and lost family are all within Her robes.
Channeled, created and consecrated during the period between Devil’s Night and the Day of the Dead. All amulets charged on the shrine of Santa Muerte with Her ritually dried marigolds.
Handcast pewter amulet, consecrated to Santa Muerte.
