This piece holds Lava Rock, Magnesite, African Jade, and a ceramic AUM pendant. Made with Love!
The Lava Rock has been through intense transformation through the exposure to extreme elemental forces, thus sharing an incredible endurance. It is also grounding and vitalizing. Lava Rock lends strength and courage, and provides stability while going through changes in one's life.
Magnesite stimulates the third eye and crown chakra, and assists the alignment with higher frequencies and Truth. It is a stone that helps balance emotions and raise ones consciousness.
African Jade is used here for its strengthening and calming effect on the heart. It supports the circulatory system, the heart muscle and its functions, on a physical level. Mentally, it is a gem that alleviates nervousness and it can serve as balancing for people with hectic lives and high levels of responsibility. African Jade is useful in opening the Anahata chakra (heart), as it brings balance and acceptance.
AUM is a sacred symbol that represents the four 'states' of the atman, the alternating levels of relative consciousness. A is the waking state, U is the dream state, M is the deep sleep state, and the Silence that follows (and in which the AUM takes place) is the fourth 'state' (Turiya avastha, or Turiyatita, as Ramana Maharshi often referred to it) that holds all other states, the one underlying reality that always is, while the previous three states come and go, the Absolute/Consciousness/Awareness remains. In short, AUM describes the different forms of Brahman/Existence; the alternating expressions of consciousness, and points toward the three ever-changing states and the fourth, the all-encompassing Existence, which holds it all. Turiyatita means 'transcending the fourth' and points to the fact that there are not really four states, but only one real transcendental state/supreme reality. The jnani (one who has realized the Self) is established in Turiya and detachedly witnesses the three other states (walking, dreaming and dreamless sleep) as pictures superimposed on it. Stay as the witness.
