As some of you may know, I love shell magick, and work with shells regularly. They are often described as 'the crystals of the sea', and you can work with them in the same way as you would any crystal. Each shell has its own associations and attributes and can be used to empower your practice.
Recently I've been working on my connecting with my own feminine energies to help me feel more confident in myself. As such, here are five shells that can help you connect with your own feminine divine, and the energy of the Goddess.
The Conch Shell:
The conch shell has a very feminine energy, and can be used to promote love and beauty. It is said that if you hold a conch shell to your ear, you can hear the ocean, and so these shells are great for connecting to the oceans and seas which are also aligned with the feminine, or the Goddess. It is a shell which is also great for clearing negative energies, and so can be used in cleansing of the body and soul.
It is also associated with knowledge and wisdom, sacredness, magic, vitality, and communication.
The Moon Shell:
It is unsurprising that a shell called the 'moon' shell is associated with Goddess energies! It is also associated with harmony, tolerance, patience, rebirth, mystery, and cycles.
The mussel shells is a common find on beaches here in the UK. Some of them have a bit of a purple colouring on the outer shell, and a white colouring on the inner shell, and I find that this combination of colour screams 'Goddess energies' to me! The mussel shell is life-giving, and also represents community, stability, and can help us to endure hardships.
The scallop is another shell associated with Goddess energies - in fact, the Goddess Aphrodite is often shown standing in, on, or near a scallop shell. It is also associated with beauty, fertility, and lunar energies. It can bring healing, relaxation, and lift our spirits. It can also be used to encourage change and regeneration, and help us navigate change with a positive attitude.
I love this shell - it is one of my favourites to work with when connecting with feminine, or Goddess energies. It brings balance and encourages compassion, both to others and to ourselves. It has a very comforting energy, and is also associated with selflessness, transformation, and feeling more confident and comfortable in ourselves.
The Weekly Witch:
Once I week I talk about something 'witchcraft' related I have done with my week. How we incorporate witchcraft into our every day lives is always a topic that has interested me, so I wanted to start this blog to explore it further!
