Shiva Shell (or Shiva’s Eye) is gently nurturing, acting as a seed for future generations. Some believe that whispering wisdom into this shell passes that knowledge along to children yet to be born. It represents the flow of life, blending spiritual knowledge with visualization and helping one reach new levels of consciousness. Meditating on the line of this shell helps one journey towards inner inspiration, finding joy, spontaneity, and reinvention along the way.
Shiva Shell gets its name from the Hindu God Shiva, the Lord who dances reality into existence. This shell is supposedly connected to the God’s third eye.
Some believe this shell has the power to ward off the Evil Eye.
This shell comes from the Operculum Snail, which can be found on the coasts of India, Thailand, and Australia. It is made up of calcium carbonate.
Shiva Shell resonates with the third eye chakra.
You can place Shiva Shell in full moon moonlight to energize. It can also be moved through sage smoke or incense, placed in rice, or buried in the earth overnight.
Aries is sometimes associated with Shiva Shell.
Folklore states that Shiva Shell can aid the kidneys, lymph nodes, and reproductive organs.
