"Towards the Heavens"

necklace 'Towards the Heavens'

 

Fire, water, air, earth – our life is based on these elements. Without those, there would be no life on Earth. That is why it is important to have all four elements represented and balanced in our lives. It also creates balance in us and allows us to move on in our journey. It’s as if they create a firm basis which helps us move towards the heavens. 
In this necklace, those four elements have been placed as symbols around the Octogram. Together they support the power of the Octogram.

 

Octogram

Octogram, an eight pointed star, etc. There are several names for this important symbol. I’m familiar with the octogram mainly from socks and sweaters knitted by grandma. Somehow it’s warm and cozy and very Estonian. I was surprised to learn that this symbol was already used by the Sumerians. It is an ancient symbol of protection, which defends us from evil and brings happiness. Octogram also is a symbol of sun, source, North Star, morning star, four cardinal points and I’m sure it has several other meanings. Surely everyone will find exactly what they need in this symbol, but it must be said that it carries enormous power. Octogram has also been called an eight-pointed star. Number eight sideways is a sign of infinity – eternity, endlessness. In China, number eight symbolizes the totality and comprehensiveness of the Universe. For me, octogram is like a gate – a Heaven’s Gate, and after passing through we can fly higher and see the bigger picture of life.

 

Amethyst

Amethyst is a stone of spiritual protection, purification and transformation. It is used to get rid of bad habits since it has cleansing effect and it helps one find balance and restraint. Bad habits in question include alcoholism, smoking, drugs, bulimia, etc. Amethyst also aids travellers and therefore it is good to keep it in the car where it helps on reach the destination safely. Amethyst eliminates fear of changes and eases one’s view on the future. It is especially useful for children, who often express their emotions with anger and rage, because of its calming and balancing effect. It also relieves sadness and grief, and helps to cope with losses.
Due to its cleansing effect, it is used to block geopathic stress. 
Amethyst relieves pain, headaches, reduces swellings and injuries. It is beneficial for lungs, respiratory tract, skin and digestive tract.
