The stone of wisdom, my natural spiral pattern represents the flow of life, guiding the movement towards your life path. I symbolise your ability to look beyond the shoreline and into the depths of your relationships with others, yourself and the world around you. I am thought to act as a wisdom keeper. By whispering wisdom to me I store it to pass the knowledge along to future generations.
I hold a gentle nurturing energy and am here to offer protection and ward off negativity while you manifest your deepest dreams into reality. My unique swirling is actually the protective door at the opening of an Operculum Snail shell, which naturally detaches at the end of the snail's life. Reminding us of the beauty change can bring, allowing time for reinvention. Iget my name from the Hindu God Shiva, who dances reality into existence and this is what I aim to do with you.
Properties: Joy. Spontaneity. Reinvention.
Use: Carry daily in your pocket or handbag to infuse the space around your aura. Hold or rub the piece as a tactile calming strategy. When natural elements have direct contact with the skin they are better equipped to transmit their vibrations in alignment with your own energy.
Shape: Heart - the universal symbol of love, designed to welcome pure thoughts into your space. These pieces are hand carved and lightly polished. Some carving and scratching marks may be present due to this hand made technique. The artisans carve the shape to maintain the largest amount of the beautiful product so you may find a difference in thickness across the shell.
Colour: Each piece is completely unique with the colours coming from the snails diet. One side is whiteish with a darker swirl pattern while the other side usually varies in colourings and patterns of green/blue/brown. White - Hope.
Chakra: Third eye - the sixth chakra located in the centre of your head, parallel to the middle of your eyebrows. It acts as the centre of wisdom, conscience, and higher consciousness. When aligned you can expect the practices of open mindedness and self actualisation to feel more obtainable.
Intention: For added meaning set an intention to your piece or use a mantra such as 'I am on the path leading from my outer consciousness to my inner soul” or ‘I am discovering my identity in the universe’.
Country of origin: Madagascar.
Interesting: Also knowns as ‘Pacific cats eye’, it is said to be goodluck when placed in the north area of the home, especially in association with career path.
