Courageous Conch Sea Spirit - Prints
I love how something that seems as small and insignificant as a shell can hold the whole ocean within it. When you press it to your ear, you can hear the ebb and flow of the tide, the rush of the sea and the vastness of the universe. Shells remind us that though we may be small, what we contain within us is infinite and immeasurable. Good things truly do come in small packages.
Shells are primarily used in magic to draw things you desire into your life. The Conch Shell, when blown, produces a loud noise and can be used in summoning, resolving difficulties in communicating, and as an aid in clearing up misconceptions.
The conch shell was one of Buddhism’s eight auspicious symbols, signifying truthful speech and strength, with the conch shell’s call meant to awaken one from ignorance, and a sign of victory over suffering. It also appears in the Hindu tradition of prayer, and was the weapon of choice of mystical mermaids and mermen. As such, its mystical meaning alludes to strength and fortitude.
This shell of wisdom has washed up at your feet for a reason. Close your eyes and listen with your heart. What can you hear? When did you stop listening and paying attention to your happiness? Are you doing your part to uphold your truth and share this with the world? The conch is calling on you to stay true to yourself and what you want, and to find the courage to tell others that these things make you happy.
