This beautiful Abalone (Mother of Pearl) and Hematite necklace is wonderful for the ultimate healing combination. 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 necklace and bless it with positive light.” As well as, Hematite helps to absorb negative energy and calms in times of stress or worry. Hematite is a very protective stone and is great to carry to help you stay grounded in many situations. Hematite is also good for working with the Root Chakra, helping to transform negative energies into a more positive vibration.
