1888's Take: "The water has memory. It holds our history within its fluidic crystal like state of being. Treat it well and it will nourish your existence. We use it to purify the body and the soul, and it is what gives our very cells form. I hold a deep respect for the force it holds within it as mother to all we know to be alive." - Nathan
The Lion fish totem is thought to be a sign to take control of your own happiness letting go of negativity and taking your life into your own hands. It's said to help encourage you to have faith in the overall goodness of humanity especially when life becomes difficult.
Spider turquoise is formed when a cluster of turquoise nuggets are naturally cemented together with a dark matrix and when a cabochon is cut reveals a spider web like pattern. For thousands of years, turquoise has been prized as a symbol of wisdom, nobility, and immortality. In many Native American cultures, it represents the great spirit in the sky and is often referred to as the Sky Stone. It’s believed that if a crack forms in the stone, it has taken the injury for its wearer.
