In many cultures, summoning rain often included the use of musical instruments. One well-known example is a rainstick, an instrument that mimics the sound of rain. They are traditionally made from dead cactus tubes with cactus spines hammered to the inside and filled with tiny pebbles.
Rain sticks are usually made from dried cactus, reeds, or bamboo and then filled with pebbles or beans. It is believed that they were used by indigenous farming tribes in arid climates with the hopes of calling for rain for their crops.
The origin of the rainstick is not fully known, but many people think that it probably came from a group of indigenous people known as the Diaguita from the deserts of northern Chile.
Shamanism & Drumming
Shamanism is a very ancient practice that humans developed as a spiritual tradition for their empowerment and well-being. One of the most important tools of the shaman is the Shamanic Drum. The shaman is a technician of ecstasy and its drum serves as an instrument of attunement. The drumming uses a repetitive rhythm that builds slowly and works up to three to seven beats every second that works out at around 180 beats per minute. After around ten to fifteen minutes of listening to such rhythmic drumming human brain waves change their usual beta state to a more Theta/Alpha brainwave state.
In this brainwave a connection to made to the unseen realms and the human becomes more open receiving psychic impression, imprints and messages from the spirit world as well as being more connected to the human subconscious. This is also what is known as an ecstatic trance state. In this ecstatic trance state the shaman is able to journey to other worlds to obtain guidance, healing, future divination and shape shifting. A Shamanic Practitioner may have to pass through several layers of trance states until the required trance state is achieved for healing and until the shaman feels the helping spirits have been contacted, communicate with and are doing their work though the shaman. The shaman acts as a conduit and or what is call ‘the hollow bone’ through which its helping spirits can channel their healing power through.
