NEW ZEALAND PAUA SHELL'S mantra is 'The beauty of Life'. It's energy is of the divine feminine and is soothing, comforting, strengthening & heart opening. It's thought to give protection through the changes and transitions in life and encourages one to realise we come out more beautiful - just as the Paua's irredescent colours are revealed through being tumbled by the sand & ocean floor.
Its also considered a sacred shell and was once reserved only for the Maori Princesses. It represents 'whetu' or the stars of our ancestors watching over us.
COWRIE SHELL has been used in tribes ancient & new as sacred adornment & is thought to offer Goddess protection and impart the strength & power of the sea. It's also said to improve fertility.
