BUTTERFLY SYMBOLISM - The butterfly meaning represents spiritual rebirth, transformation, creativity, endless potential, vibrant joy, change, ascension, and an ability to experience the wonder of life.
TURQUOISE is one of the oldest protection amulets and in many ancient cultures was a symbol of wealth and prosperity. Turquoise was associated with connections to the spiritual world, psychic sensitivity, and protection from harm and negative energy. It is the symbol of friendship and brings good fortune to the owner. The turquoise stone is believed to carry with it great truth and wisdom inside it. The turquoise gemstone is a stone that represents self-realization and is an aid in analytical thinking as well as creative energy.
STERLING SILVER - Silver is the metal of emotions, of the psychic mind, and of loving as well as healing. It is used to bring patience and perseverance to the wearer.
Silver is known to enhance the powers of the moon, particularly during the full and new moons. Throughout the world it is identified with the lunar manifestations of the Great Mother, the eternal goddess. Since silver is associated with the moon, it is also associated with the yin and feminine energies. As the metal is reflective, as the moon reflects the light of the sun, so does silver reflect negativity from the wearer. Any sliver jewelry can be worn for magical security; used to provide protection again evil intent, reflecting spells of harm back to the sender.
Silver can also be used to enhance one’s psychic abilities, as it is a psychic-influencing metal. When worn it stimulates one’s psychic awareness but simultaneously lulls the conscious, so as not to overwhelm. Wearing silver jewelry before sleep is another method of producing psychic dreams. If the piece is set with moonstone or other gemstone with psychic properties the effects will be more powerful.
Use the lunar qualities of Silver to balance your life; growing what is good and necessary while voiding whatever causes you harm or prevents your evolution. Let it perform like a psychic mirror, allowing you to see your life from the outside. View this new perspective without judgment, but with a purer knowledge of what is best for your highest good.
There is a long history and tradition of healing associated with Silver. It is believed that Silver is antibacterial of sorts. A disinfectant for the human body that boosts your immunity. In many ancient cultures, silver was used to purify water and in the prevention of festering of wounds. In 1884 a Dr. Crede discovered that silver had the ability to cure a disease that had been responsible for causing blindness in thousands of babies. Hippocrates, the father of medicine, wrote that silver had beneficial healing and anti disease properties.
