Smudging/ Alter Shells
A great alternative to the classic abalone shell. They can be used as a fire-safe bowl for smudging, and burning incense or resins, as well as a unique way to display tumbled stones or other small objects on your altar.
Lion Paw Scallop Shells-
These shells carrying ocean energy and the spirit of the animal that used to live inside its clutches. Honoring both the spirit of the ocean and the creature who lived inside is a great intention to set before use.
Spiny Oyster Shell-
Going back to basics and reconnecting with this energy, this vibrational hum. It is about sea and land and sun all working in concert to help these sea creatures grow and thrive. It is also a reminder that we, as caretakers of this earth, are responsible for her care, helping her grow and thrive. It is also our responsibility to stop those who are causing great harm to her just as these Spiny Oyster Shells helped to protect the small creature within from harm.
Spiny Oyster Shells help to bring about a sense of strength and survival, especially for those in domestic abuse or traumatic situations. Often times, we feel as if we have had our insides pulled out to be used by another, only to have the shell (our body) tossed out in the trash pile. It is often difficult to put the pieces back together or to even have the courage to try at all! Spiny Oyster Shells represent hope and courage and a reminder of how important you are! You deserve to grow and thrive too.
