This idea is that Universal Energy follows thought. If you go about your day thinking positive thoughts, it is more likely you will attract positive energy and have positive results. Several years ago, I was told in an intuitive reading I should put my “medicine” into the drums. As a result, the intention for each drum comes from my life at the time. When making a custom drum for someone, I ask what their intention for the drum is and, during the drum-making process, I meditate on that intent.
Smudging is a simple Native American ritual that uses sacred herbs to cleanse. When I begin working on a drum, I smudge myself as well as the area and supplies. I say thank you to the trees for providing the frames and to the animals for the rawhide. I also place smudging herbs inside the intention drum. These herbs have different qualities: Sage dispels negative energy. Cedar calls in positive energy. Sweet grass offers a blessing.
