Abalone & Hematite Heart Collar
Abalone & Hematite Heart Collar w/ O Ring & Matching Earrings
Abalone jewelry, masks and decorative bowls have been used by many ancient cultures due to abalone meaning and properties. In Native American cultures, the abalone shell is used as a smudge bowl to burn sage in. They believed that the abalone and sage together will carry their messages up to heaven. In the Apache culture, abalone is used in The Sunrise Ceremony, a ritual that marks a girl’s passage into womanhood. According to Apache myth, The Sunrise Ceremony celebrates the White Painted Woman who survived the great flood in an abalone shell, and came to land to be impregnated by the Sun and the Rain. The son born from her communion with rain, creates water. The son born from her communion with Sun, is the Killer of Enemies who defeats the White Painted Woman’s enemies. Victorious, she bestows a puberty rite upon all Apache women. This is why the journey into puberty honors the White Painted Woman in the abalone disc worn on the forehead of Apache girls as they perform the ritual. Abalone meaning is one of solace, a connection to the ocean, the cycle of life, protection and ancient travel.
ABALONE HEALING PROPERTIES
The believed abalone healing properties of today are very similar to ancient beliefs of the shell. Abalone healing carries energies of protection and emotional balance. It brings with it a natural shielding that blesses the person holding it with tranquility. Abalone healing is especially helpful for those going through emotional turmoil or those having a hard time dealing with a situation in a relationship. Through it’s soothing energy, it provides a layer of protection that perches the spirit up with the confidence necessary to view situations from a new, more understanding perspective. If you think of abalone as representative of water, like many cultures do, it is the water that will tame the flames of one’s emotional strife.
Abalone properties connect a being to their highest chakras. Abalone chakras are primarily the crown, third eye and heart chakras. The mother-of-pearl that lines the abalone shell, in tandem with the shell itself, are said to activate intuitive qualities like clarity in regards to situations, sensitivity and imagination. Holding abalone during cleansing rituals lends to a feeling of purity. Abalone is thought to have a divine energy, and using it with sage in the act of space clearing invokes the spirit of the ocean and uses your highest chakras as a conduit to the divine realm. To perform a cleansing ritual, you’ll need a wand or bundle of dried white sage or dried loose leaf sage, and an abalone shell. You can practice this ritual at anytime, but it is keenly helpful to rid negative energy after an argument, when moving into a new home, returning home from travels or places where there were crowds, when you begin a new job, after guests leave your space and after a healing or exercise practice. To begin, light the sage and allow the abalone to catch the falling ash. Use a feather or your hand to send the smoke over your body, from your feet to your head and back down to your feet again. Visualize your spirit being cleansed of all the toxic energy clinging to it. Then move toward the areas of your space that receive a lot of traffic, being cautious not to forget areas like corners, doorways, windows and closets. As you do this, repeat the mantra: “I invoke the spirits of Air, Earth, Fire and Water to cleanse this space and bless it with positive light.
Since the Abalone Shell is a water vessel, keep it protected from the fire of burning sage by lining the bottom with a thin layer of sand. Now, when you use the Abalone Shell for cleansing rituals, the sage won’t make burn marks on its beautiful, iridescent luster. The sand also makes it easier to fan out burning sage or other cleansing tools like sacred Palo Santo.
Let Hematite get under your skin. This stone, named after the greek word for blood, has historically been known for connecting the body to the earth. In fact, when ancient people were first experimenting with art, they used hematite as an early form of chalk to create paintings on the walls of their caves. Based on the way this stone nourishes the root chakra to cleanse self-doubts and allows creativity to flow freely, our ancient ancestors couldn’t have picked a better stone to draw with.
The Hematite meaning tells it like it is. If you’re spinning out of control, or spending all of your time going over things in your mind on constant replay, hematite is going to give you a reality check. It brings you out of your mind and down to earth. Hematite focuses its energy on the body, and it teaches us to do the same. Rather than over analyzing due to stress or anxiety, use hematite to connect to your root chakra, so that you can stay grounded and just be. By acting like a sponge for all of your negative thoughts and energy, hematite takes on the bad so that you don’t have to. Also like a sponge, hematite can only absorb so much. While you can cleanse your hematite, it can only be cleansed so many times before it cannot accept any more energy, and should be buried in the ground and replaced with a new stone.
Although not typically thought of for this, Hematite healing properties include being a great tool for manifestation. On an everyday level, carrying hematite stones or wearing hematite jewelry helps to bring your dreams and aspirations into reality. By grounding you, and therefore transforming your mindset into one with more clarity, you are able to take the steps to and make the necessary changes to bring your dreams to reality. A Hematite Stone can also help you to see the silver lining in every situation, bringing you a more positive outlook on life.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN WHEN I’M DRAWN TO A HEMATITE TUMBLED STONE:
If you're drawn to the Hematite crystal, it could be a sign that you're in need of grounding and balancing in your life. As soon as the Hematite crystal stone touches the skin, you'll feel more centered and calm with its intense but subtle vibrations. While all crystals have powerful grounding effects, the Hematite crystal properties are a gem when it comes to clearing and activating the root chakra, the energy center that anchors us to the earth and provides a feeling of stability.
The O-ring symbol has long been a representation for an abstract concept describing something without limits
My Outlook - The collar is a symbol, it belongs to the Dominant but the submissive gets to wear it as a symbol of their ownership. It is usually the most important piece of jewelry worn on a daily basis. A collar for submissives is one of the most fundamental symbols of their relationship and one that is usually guarded and protected with their heart.That collar also works as a symbol of Dominance for the one who gave it, right? So, in effect, the collar works as a relationship symbol and not one side or the other. Ask any Dominant what the collar means, and it will mean ownership - to them.
