Eagle feather earrings (wall hanging) Knitting Pattern 5.50 USD instant download.
Eagle feathers are sacred symbols. (It is illegal to own a real one in the United States without special permission.) The gift of eagle medicine comes to one who has been through a stretch of personal darkness. The vision of the eagle soaring through the sky is truly a redemption story! It is victory over all shadows and fear. Like a rainbow, it tells the story of rising over trouble to see the situation from a wide eagle-eye-view. f you feel called to work with Eagle as sacred medicine for your healing journey, know that you have a relationship with a powerful ally. This is a way to represent that bond where no bird will ever be harmed. Boundless gratitude to Chief Three Hawks for his sacred gift.
