Necklace "Towards the Heavens" with turquoise and copper

 

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.

 

Turquoise

Turquoise is a crystal that helps to find integrity and truth. It unites the earth and sky, masculine and feminine energies. Turquoise also has some soothing qualities, reduces stress and brings lightness. This crystal teaches the wisdom of compassion and forgiveness, including self-forgiveness and self-respect. It helps to offload the feeling of guilt. Turquoise reminds us of all experiences being useful. The errors that we make are also just experiences that help us learn and move forward. In order to achieve integrity, we need to accept all sides and experiences of our lives.
Turquoise gives us vitality, reduces depression and strengthens the immune system. It increases the oxygen level in the blood and helps the body to absorb nutrients. It relieves pain, reduces inflammations, strengthens heart and eyes.
 

Copper

Copper is like a bridge between Heaven and Earth, sending spiritual energies to Earth, making the invisible visible. Since copper is a good conductor of energies, it strengthens the energy of all stones (mainly earth-element) related to it. Copper teaches ancient wisdom about harmony on Earth. It encourages one to experiment and discover everything new.
Already in ancient Greece copper plates were used to cure tumors, joint and tonsil inflammations and skin diseases. Copper helped avoid the emergence of rachitis and epilepsy. It plays an important role in our body, helping the damaged tissue recover. Also, it adds to the role of iron to produce haemoglobin and red blood cells. Copper increases vitality and supports the healing of an organism.
