For centuries Dolls were considered rich in spiritual power and were used in rituals, ceremony, and in love spells.
It is believed that dolls have Life infused by their creators.
Superficially it is only a doll, but in the Doll there is the voice of the wiser part of Us. The Doll represents Our deepest Being. There is no greater blessing that a mother can give to her daughter than by symbolically giving a doll that represents her intuition.
To be guided by one’s intuition means to expand trust and this guides the woman by increasing her ability to move in the outside world.
Intuition feels the directions to take, includes hidden motives and intentions.
But what is a voice worth if no ear hears it?
Thousands of times women say, “I knew I had to or didn’t have to do a certain thing.
The doll represents the inner spirit, the voice of reason, knowledge and awareness. The wisdom of the Being within us. It represents a little piece of Soul, which continues in the inner work, tireless, even and especially when we sleep.
Much literature affirms that men (but also women themselves) are afraid of the power of women, because the hidden power of the feminine is vast.
Women will also have to teach men how to express that “inner feminine”, which is the most creative and profound part, present also in men.
Through the doll you can learn how to select, understand, clean and clear your mind.
To enter into a relationship with the ancient feminine you have to work a lot on yourself, purifying stagnant, ancient, banal thoughts, renewing your own values and creative ideas.
Get used to asking her a question before sleeping, you will find an answer when you wake up!
It takes a bit of practice but it will be successful. There is something in the psyche, something in the doll, or in the collective unconscious that will select the answer while we sleep and dream.
The great Being that dwells in the doll’s small body symbolizes an emphatic form between the woman and her intuition. But it is necessary to feed it, keep it trained and listen to it.
One cannot consult intuition once and then forget it.
One must consult it at every step of life.
A woman must know how to choose wisely Friends and Lovers.
If she surrounds herself with people who are cruel, destructive, without passion or who are not interested in her and her Life, she cannot remain in contact with her awareness.
A friend/lover must consider them as a flower, growing, living and breathing, and it is wonderful… these are the people to surround yourself with!
When we are deeply connected to our Soul we can understand what we really want. Especially in the choice of partner and lover. A lover cannot be chosen by chance, but by the ardent desire of the Soul.
That is what intuition is for: it is the messenger directed by the Soul.
The ideal is always to consult our Being first through one or more available aspects: one of these is surely the Doll who is Your Self, who surely knows what to do and what is best for Us.
The dolls have been part of the human race since prehistoric times, offered as a gift to sovereigns, used in temples representing the saints, regularly washed and dressed in handmade clothes and brought among the crops so that they could intercede on behalf of man.
They are connected to the symbols of the elf, the elf, the gnome, the fairy and the dwarf. In fairy tales they represent the profound wisdom of the psyche.
They were made of clay or wood and used to represent religious figures or as toys. Many dolls were found in Egyptian tombs dating back to 2000 BC, in painted terracotta, without joints or only sketched, some still have their hair decorated with beads strung in wood or clay.
Other very simple ones were found to be part of funeral outfits, made with mobile arms that make it clear that they were toys. Many dolls were found with their beds and miniature furniture.
For several centuries the dolls were sewn by mothers for their children, or
the girls built them themselves out of wood, clay, stone, or, more simply, canvas and threads. Other primitive examples of Roman and Greek dolls used as games have been found, or wooden dolls dedicated to goddesses.
Over the centuries Europe has been an important centre for the production of dolls.
Since 1800 they began to build dolls made of wood pulp or paper, a useful material to be mass produced.
Porcelain became popular at the beginning of the 19th century.
The valuable Bisque porcelain dolls, were introduced in late 1860, intended today for the collectors market.
