"In Karelia there was an ancient belief in the Sielulintu or Soul bird. It was believed the Sielulintu protected a person's soul at its most vulnerable when dreaming. It was tradition to keep a carved wooden bird by the bedside to keep the soul safe during sleep. Use this bird as a symbol of good luck, protection and happiness. To a happy soul!"

Tuonela is the Underworld, The Realm of The Dead, in Finnish mythology. Like other Underworlds from mythology, it sits on an island and is reached by crossing a river. It is ruled over by the God Tuoni, and His Wife, Tuonetar, who serves as Ferrywoman and Hostess. This realm appears in the Kalevala when Väinämöinen travels there seeking knowledge.
