A spirit doll is a doll or figure that is made as a representation of a particular spirit or deity in various cultural and spiritual traditions. These dolls can be used as symbols of protection, guidance, or assistance from the spirit or deity they represent. They are often used in meditation, ritual, or prayer practices to connect with the spirit world. Spirit dolls are crafted and personalized with specific colors, materials, and symbols that are associated with the spirit or deity they represent. They can be made from a variety of materials, including fabric, clay, wood, or paper. Some people also like to create their own spirit or deity totem dolls to represent a specific aspect of themselves or their life journey.
It’s important to note that the use of spirit dolls differs across cultures and spiritual traditions. It’s always best to approach this practice with respect and research, and to follow the guidelines of the particular tradition you are working with.
