With their birthplace being concentrated in sea salt (we’re talking about the ocean here), and sacred geometry being an integral part of their make-up, shells have long been used by ancient tribes around the world as protectors from negative energies, and as tools to stimulate intuition and spiritual connection.
Because of the Moon’s influence on the ocean, seashells also hold the energy of the Moon. Many shells, particularly sea snails and the nautilus (shown in image), form on a spiral, a powerful symbol of the Pagan Great Mother Goddess.
Shells have been used for centuries by many ancient, and modern-day tribes, for several purposes – healing, protection, spell work, self-love practice, currency, and spiritual & psychic awareness and growth/enhancement to name a few. For example, seashells can contain and enhance Reiki with their shape, size, and structure, allowing a gentle but powerful healing energy that works with the healer to cleanse, balance and harmonize the aura and chakras!
The Color Teal

Teal may assist in an emergency offering clear thinking and positive decision making; assisting in the development of organizational and management skills; influencing rather than demanding.
There are quite a number of ways copper can benefit you. The first of them is it provides energy to the brain and improves the functioning of the nervous system. It also helps in the production of red blood cells – it aids the process and boosts your immunity. It achieves this along with iron. Copper also contributes to the health of bones, nerves, and even promotes iron absorption.
Copper contributes to bone mineral density, and low levels of the mineral can lead to osteoporosis. It also plays a role in collagen health, which is an important structural component in our bodies. Insufficient copper can lead to depletion of collagen, and this eventually results in joint dysfunction.
The anti-inflammatory properties of copper can also ease arthritis pain.
Copper supports over 50 enzymatic reactions that take place in your body on a daily basis. This supports a healthy metabolism.
The mineral also plays a role in the synthesis of ATP, or adenosine triphosphate – which is the body’s source of energy. Which is why deficiency of copper can lead to a sluggish metabolism.
Copper peptides are also known to increase the size of the hair follicles and subsequently stop hair thinning. And since copper helps in the production of melanin, it can even prevent premature graying of hair.
These are just some of the MANY benefits of copper.
