Abalone Clam (Paua)
Abalone, Paua is a type of mussel, in the haliotidae family.
It comes from New Zealand, so it is considered a national treasure.
Its scientific name is Heliotis Iris (ear of the sea), also called Abalone and Sidef.
In English it is also called "ear shell", in French it is "ormier" or "oreille de mer".
Sideful is an organic material produced by some molluscs as the inner layer of the shell.
Mother of pearl and seashells remind me the most of sea water, of warm and sunny summer days, of clear skies with fleeting fluffy white clouds, and most of all I like how well their pearly white looks on tanned skin .
Sideful and shells carry the vibrations of sea waters and oceans, and take on the feminine qualities of water, fluidity, sensitivity and purity, tranquility and adaptability. Because of the Moon's influence on the oceans, mother-of-pearl and seashells hold the Moon's energy. Many shells, especially sea snails form on a spiral, a powerful symbol of the Great Pagan Goddess. The spiral goddess represents our inner feminine power. This spiral represents the creative power within, rising from our sacral chakra, the chakra that corresponds to our desires, sexuality and relationships.
Shells and mother-of-pearl have been used since ancient times by tribes all over the world as protectors against negative energies and as tools to stimulate intuition, spiritual connection, they are associated with the third eye chakra, with the opening of vision and spiritual insight.
They have been used for centuries for many purposes such as healing, protection, magic, self-love practice, as currency, for spiritual awareness, psychic and spiritual growth, to cleanse, balance and harmonize the aura and chakras.
