This piece is perfect for you if you are a sensitive, gentle soul who sometimes feels like you want to hide inside your shell because life gets so intense. If you are feeling stuck, frozen, or scared of change, it will help you find calm and grounding in yourself so you can then, from an anchored place, reconnect to the flow of the Universe. You have the capacity to adapt, regenerate + keep moving even if the path is not clearly traced, or things feel overwhelming. The crab will gently remind you that being divinely taken care of: for your power + protection comes from within you.
Crystals :: Champagne Quartz + Mooakite + Petrified Wood + Citrine
Animal Energy :: Crab
The crab’s protective shell will remind you that you do not have to be on guard constantly because you are divinely being taken care of and the power comes from within YOU! When it casts its shell for a new one, the crab helps you recognize your innate capacity to adapt and regenerate. Since a crab never walks in a straight line, it will remind you that not all paths are clearly traced. Just as it is content to move with the natural cadence of the moon, the water, the land, and the perfect rhythm of nature - you can be as “happy as a crab” no matter what life throws at you!
Chakra :: First + Third
This mala is made with 108, 8 mm high grade crystals (AA, AAA and AAAA), gold plated + gold filled details, an animal charm and a small tassel. It is approximately 36 inches long with a 1.25 inch pendant, it hangs approximately 19 inches and has a beautiful weight to it (108 grams / 3.8 oz).
Each bead is carefully and mindfully knotted by hand using high quality nylon cord. It may relax, but it should not stretch. Once finished, we cleanse and activate it for you with a moonlight bath.
What is in Your Package?
All of our pieces come in a beautiful handmade pouch with a hand stamped logo, 2 meaning cards: one explaining its crystal energy and one explaining the animal energy it carries and a "Note from the Artist." This all comes in a kraft paper box.
Caring for Our Oceans
The Oceans is our biggest resource for life on Earth.Today, garbage, oil spills, overfishing, mercury pollution, offshore drilling, whaling + shark finning, are amongst some of the most serious problems that are affecting not only the waters, but also the Ocean wildlife. This collection is a tribute to the magic of the Oceans + its animals. My hope is that anyone who a piece is reminded of the love the Ocean has for us, so that we can hopefully do everything in our human power to protect Her. 10% of the profits of this piece will be donated to support the restoration of wildlife + wellbeing of our Oceans.
The Ocean Collection
The Ocean is the womb of our Planet, as it is where life began on Earth. It symbolizes both change + constancy, the vast, borderless + formlessness, the wild, untamed + calm, the unknown, unfathomable + the mysterious. It represents the subconscious + our deepest emotions: stormy, crashing, and also peaceful. Its waves carry beautiful, ancient magic + wisdom.Water is the Element of the Divine Feminine: the Element of emotion, intuition, compassion + purification. Everything is born + grows with and because of water. We are mostly made up of water. It carries the essence of life + love and many considered it sacred. The animals who live in the Ocean are held, protected and embraced by Her waters: cleansing, healing, and loving, and they too, are carriers of Her energy as well as their own unique medicine.
