Making My Spirit Pouch

Today I'm working on my spirit pouch. I was going to make a pouch out of green fabric, but then I found an beautiful green organza pouch I already owned. Then the search was on to decide what to put into it.
And now it's too heavy. Yes, I got carried away.  So I think I'll keep a box of items that could go into the pouch, and swap them out as I need them.

Yellow Jasper: I've had this piece of yellow jasper for years. I was drawn to put it in the pouch. Here is a site that tells the metaphysical meanings of yellow jasper. If this helps me work next to my boyfriend and respect each other, it's something I really need.

Turquoise: I've always been drawn to turquoise.  And when I found this piece that used to belong to my mother, I had to use it. In fact it was the first thing I put in the pouch.

Amethyst Egg: This crystal in my favorite color is a must have for me. Once I walked into a store full of giant amethyst crystal geodes and I literally felt like I was walking 3" off the ground.

Copper Thunderbird Ring
Large black button to absorb negativity.
Three wooden cut-outs (poppets) to represent my 3 grandchildren. I have 3 sizes that match their ages.
A tiny clear glass sphere that reminds me of a crystal ball.
A green ceramic circle with a goddess figurine on one side and the word 'luck' on the side. Also stamped with tiny stars on the back.
A blue ceramic circle with a hamsa hand and a spiral on the palm. Spirals will always represent being a hypnotist to me.
A tiny bag with allspice
A tiny bag with a cinnamon stick
A heart shaped seashell to represent my love for the ocean
A circular carved bone bead
A piece of barely pink glass shaped like a star with streaks of gold and blue
A small gold cross with pearls and rubies
A tiny brown feather that was a top peacock feather to represent air and clairvoyance
I also want to add a dollar coin
I might replace the button with a piece of obsidian or an Apache tear if one comes my way.
A green lampwork glass bead to attract money.
A tiny white jingle bell to banish evil spirits

My three grandchildren are represented by these little wood people.

Allspice and Cinnamon for protection, prosperity and healing

A cross, a bone circle, and polished turquoise

Goddess medallion

Green glass bead and polished amethyst

Spiral hand, copper thunderbird ring and clear sphere.
