How I Make Prayer Ties
How to make prayer ties? Well to make prayer ties you get some 100% cotton cloth and 100% cotton string and some tobacco.
You take a shell or something you can burn sage in. You can go to your local store in get loose tobaco.
The colors… I used white, red, and black. I cut the cloth into squares. And then I put some sage in a shell and lit a bright fire on the sage in the nice gentle shell and then blew gently.
If you want to do this, you can, too. You take your square of cloth, put a tiny pinch of tobacco in the middle. Say your prayer and then say all my relations. Fold four sides together and tie on the string.
I had 100 white ties, one red, and one black. Then you are ready for the next step.
Get ready to burn your prayer ties. I am, so let's do it! Ok, so in you go to your fire pit. Wrap your prayer ties around in a roll to keep them from getting tangled.
Then put some dead grass or some sweet grass if you like. Sage if you want, is optional.
Light the fire on the prayer ties then sit till they are all done. Your prayers rise with the smoke of the tobacco. Then you are done.
Thank you for making prayer ties with me.
