Water Element: Abalone Shell
The shell represents all our waters. Water cleanses the earth of the negative, quenches our thirst in times of need and brings life to the world.
The medicine that water holds is the most powerful medicine of all. It is both gentle and calm, yet ferocious and turbulent. It brings about change in many ways naturally and emotionally. This medicine is carried within the shell. So, when we use the shell, we call on the element of water to help us.
