Worry Dolls, also known as Muñeca Quitapena, originated in the Mayan areas of Guatemala and Mexico.
The story of the worry doll is a local Mayan legend. The origin of the Muñeca quitapena refers to a Mayan princess named Ixmucane. The princess received a special gift from the sun god that allowed her to solve any problem a human could worry about. The worry doll represents the princess and her wisdom.
Worry Doll is a way to let go of fears or worries so we can go forward in our day. Each night before bed you tell the little doll your worry and let it worry for you as you sleep deeply through the night.
It truly is a very effective way to tell your body that the worry no longer needs to continue. It comes from their Mayan culture.
According to the Mayan legend, when worrying keeps a person awake, he or she tells a worry to as many dolls as necessary. Then the worrier places the dolls under his or her pillow.
Children believe that before you go to bed at night you tell one worry to each doll. Put the dolls under your pillow and when you get up in the morning your worries are gone!
