The things we use come from the creative and inventive parts of our mind and the energy and spirit that flows into the creation with our hands comes from the endless source, from tools to painting, weaving and carving to architecture. In the very beginning of things we created tools and such with significant meaning and specific purposes. They not only served us but were made with spirit and inspired the spirit of others, and within the things we made contained those energies. We've used our things to go as far as manifest or inspire the presence of sacred beings or contain certain energies. The items created by our hands bore as much meaning and significance in every part, color and material as different herbs are brought together for specific different types of healings and cleansings. This was because all things were understood from the stones, clays, plants and animals that provided the materials to the ecology, astrology and from mind, body and spirit to the family, ancestral wisdoms, stories and keepings passed down the generations. Often our inventions and creations have also come from dreams and then brought to life into the waking world by our hands.
Since that time the material world has exploited everything and taken the meanings and natural components out of many creations, only interested in who will buy the product. Despite this problem our dreams still represent to us all the things we've made with our hands for different meanings from numbers and shapes, arts and craft, weapons and shields to homes and invention.
