I found this beautiful piece of drift wood in the Grose River, as soon as I held her I could feel the wisdom and protection of the Grandmothers coming through. There is a sense of nurture in this object and bound to it is the intention of balance and protection.
The beads I have used are over 20years old, they come from the ‘Old Bazzar’ of Dezfol, Iran- the town where my Maternal lineage is from. They are used to ward off the ‘evil eye’ and protect individuals and property from the gaze of envy which brings about malady and sometimes calamity on unsuspecting people. But more importantly for me, was the wisdom that my Grandmother shared about the way the Evil Eye worked. Often these ‘curses’ were unconscious, and we can even do it to ourselves or our children as the gaze can carry the emotion of envy and pride and these two together can be destructive. Talismans were created using these blue and red beads and sometimes using crystallised salt as well to counter these emotions and bring back harmony and wellness.
In the Hand of the Grandmothers I have bound the intention of protection and nurture. I have used Black Onyx and Smoky Quarts crystals to further anchor these intentions.
Black Onyx absorbs and transforms negative energy, and helps to prevent the drain of personal energy. Black Onyx aids the development of emotional and physical strength and stamina, especially when support is needed during times of stress, confusion or grief. Black Onyx fosters wise decision-making. Smokey quartz, also a powerful protection stone, absorbs toxic energy and has a grounding element that helps to restore balance.
This Power Object is ideal for psychic protection and acts as a shield to surround you with the wisdom of the Grandmothers and keep you centred.
