If you are drawn to its beauty, it is for very good reason. These shells are not only stunning to look at, they also hold energetic healing properties. Just like crystal use dates back to many different cultures, so too do the abalone shells. In Native American culture, the use of the abalone shell as a smudge bowl with sage is a ritual believed to send their messages up to heaven.
Shaped naturally by the ocean in Western Australia, these shells are sustainably sourced. The shell itself is believed to hold energetic healing properties that balances emotions and brings protection to its owner, especially for those going through a tough time.
These shells allow you to cleanse your home/workspace/sacred space safely as they will catch any falling ash. After cleansing your crystals, you can safely place your cleansing wand in the shell as acts as a fire proof bowl. They can also be used to hold your crystals or as alter pieces. When you receive your abalone shell, you will intuitively know where to place it.
The spiral shape of the shell is linked to the Fibonacci Spiral in Sacred Geometry, also know as the golden ratio. The spiral connects above and below, heaven and earth, symbolising the connection with the physical self to the Higher Self. Energy is constantly moving in spirals like the energetic flow between our chakras. The Kundalini energy which lays at the base of our spine represents the spiral. When activated, it spirals up the spine and raises our consciousness taking us on the path to understanding the evolution of the soul. This is what we love so much about the wisdom of nature; that there is always a deeper, more powerful meaning in its gifts.
