Day #61(General and Sacred Space)
I have only just starting using my old shells in my healing mandalas and I have to say they are something special.
The shells that I use and what appears in this photo are from my childhood and from a place that was very special to me.
Shells are ancient and been on this planet before we were even around. They hold ancient knowledge and each type of shell has different qualities and characteristics.
Shells have been used as currency, a reflection of status, musical instruments, art and in ritual ceremonies.
Have you ever notice how popular it is to collect shells from the beach or a shore?
When we do this we are usually in a space of contentment, joy, childhood memories and activating our own inner child. And this reflects the energies that they bring into your home or business as well as enhancing and healing relationships.
One Feng Shui cure to help heal a relationship is to glue a picture frame with seashells and place a photo of the person you wish to create a harmonious relationship with in the frame – I know, it’s very kitsch.
The Conch shell is the most widely used shell for ceremony and Feng Shui cures as you can actually play this shell by blowing into it, resonating it’s energy around your space and out to the Universe. It is widely used within Tibetan Buddhism as a symbol of enlightenment and awareness.
Shells are also known as a protective symbol – being a hard shell for protection of the sea mollusc – and can be used to help protect your home and your finances. Or placing them on your altar representing the Water element or around your home.
Spikey ones usually represent protection and smooth ones comfort and harmonious relationships.
If you want to start to know more about specific shells Shell Essences are available to buy and are a great accompaniment to any healing tool kit.
