Bells on a String (13) – Protection and Joy through Sound
Bells have long been the used by shaman of many cultures to scare of dark and negative energies. Bells are used in ceremonies to clear away unpleasant spirits or stagnant signatures/traces of people that have gone from this life or are still present. Shifting into a new house may requires a clearing of both bells (or other pervading sounds) and a smudge stick – these are believed to clear a house of energies that flowed around the previous tenants. People of many cultures are known to have used bells for scaring away anything that seems out of normal state of living, even harsh winds or weather patterns that seemed malicious to their well-being. Bells are also used to call people in Christian Churches for prayer and celebrate weddings. Bells are also used for practical purposes like calling children into school or some public transport such as trams. Bells are used in ceremonial dances of many cultures to celebrate joy and happiness.
