1888's Take: "There’s power in the earth...and be it that we came not in part but in our entirety from it...there is power in us...every cell in our body is as iridescent as the opals frozen fire....we are as strong and capable as the brass key...and as sturdy as the six sided sterling hexagon who's silver was mined from the very bones of the earth...but even the earth and its every part came from the heart of our nearest long gone stars...our connectedness to our past is not only spiritual and energetic but physical as well...there are no new parts of life...only recreated and upcycled elements that form and break over and over in a loving spiral that speaks in a language only eternity can hear."
Opal is a stone of inspiration which enhances imagination and creativity. It Also has a history of shipwrecks associated with it making it warning stone to stay away for potential pirates!
The hexagon is the connecting center of universal coherence which ties everything together and links everything back. It is also the universal geometric average.
~Keys / Locks~
The right key can unlock the door to a lover’s heart, a new and bright opportunity, a once in a lifetime adventure, a chest of treasure, a deep and dark secret, or even change time itself by the winding of an old grandfather clock…
Historically, Companies like PF Corbin (known for their beautifully engraved “Carded keys”) or the Tower company (1865 founder John Tower) who was responsible for the first metal handcuff, can serve as a reminder that there is beauty in having the key to free ourselves…but taking the first step through the door is entirely up to you…one key, one lock…but what’s on the other side of the door is infinite possibility.
