why it's Hard

to be a Namkha maker

"Namkha maker" - by Anna Weiss, 2022
A Namkha maker encounters bad, negative energies while making a thread-cross for someone. The path of a true Namkha-maker is not easy and usually it is deities of Namkha powers who choose a person to walk this path.
Harmonizing energy means fighting with chaos, and chaos never willingly disappears. For this reason it is hard to be a Namkha maker, and this path takes courage, resilience and strong will.

 A Namkha maker encounters many obstacles and problems white making a Namkha.

I’ve encountered so many obstacles on the way – with your Namkhas, my Namkhas, with all activities I’m involved in.
When I was harvesting sticks for the first Namkha for this project, I fell on the ice and barely escaped swimming in very cold water – it happened in December.
A Namkha maker is forced to deal with different obstacles.
Tools break, vice slip away, I remake rhombuses for 3 or more times straight… Chisel slips away – and breaks sticks… Making mistakes in colors and unwrapping threads…
This still happens after more than 150 thread-crosses I made. It’s not the matter of my skill.
It’s about the obstacles a Namkha maker is forced to deal with.
This is why I charge such cost for Namkhas. And this is why it never will be a cheap process.
It takes great energy to make a good Namkha. And great rest after.
Namkhas are powerful items with potential to truly change one’s life.
This is why it difficult to make them – and it takes much energy and resilience.
