The Healing and Metaphysical Properties of Coral
Coral comes from the sea bed and is the vacated waste of sea creatures. There are a wide variety of colours that you can find coral in, but the red and blue are the most frequently available. The taking of natural coral from the sea bed is now banned. Most coral available is farmed and so once again we can get our hands on a sustainable supply. This is a wonderful shell and, like most things from the sea, works on the emotions. Coral in any colour is valuable in your medicine pouch, so grab it when you see it and stock pile it for your patients, family and friends. We all need coral at some time or the other. Coral activates the third eye. It brings forth intuition, visualisation and creativity. Coral stimulates emotional growth, patience and tissue regeneration. Blue coral energizes the throat chakra and aids communication. It has a high vibration. Red coral works on the base chakra and has a connection to the earth, peace for humanity and harmony for all kingdoms. It vibrates at a lower frequency. It is a wonderful healer and teacher.
The Healing and Metaphysical Properties of Pearls
Unlike other crystals and minerals that are formed in the earth a beautiful natural pearl is formed in an oyster mollusk. These mollusks are dived for in the turquoise salt waters of places like the Caribbean, Thailand, Australia, Indonesia and Tahiti. Fresh water pearls are found in muscles and usually farmed mostly in China. There is a lot of superstition around pearls and the value is usually high. Some even refer to them as the tears of angels.
Pearls are organic. The most prized are the perfect ones in size and colour fetching a fortune and worn by Royalty and celebrities. However most pearls due to the way they develop building up in layers of concentric circles around perhaps a grain of sand, have very natural and expected irregularities.
From the healing perspective it is these very irregularities that are required for them to be great healing tools.
The healing qualities of pearls are that they are great in calming and balancing the emotions. They cool temper and smooth the nerves. They are great teachers of self awareness and placing boundaries. They teach us that we are all perfect in our own way. And, they teach us that we get better, more beautiful and stronger with age.
After all there is more value to a large white pearl that has grown smooth and shiny with time and tide.
