Mestana (or Mastana) Cloths

Mestana cloths are used to wrap the medicine stones and items, to swaddle them so the energy can be focused and used. The Q’ero cloths are woven of energy symbols. These symbols in turn bring energy to the medicine stones. Traditionally used as birthing cloths for the babies, they then help us to birth ourselves along our Spirit path.

There is a little story to help you remember how to fold the cloth. Begin with the cloth laid out flat like a diamond, with a corner at the top. Place your medicine stones and other items on the center of the cloth. Now you are ready for the story.

Below are photos of the traditional way of folding your Mesa around your stones.
