PEARLS of wisdom belongs to those born in June. It’s a healing gem, a spiritual token for the feminine; also known as the matrix of life itself.
Think about how peals are made: inside a living mollusk, a speck of sand is nourished with layers of nacre, eventually creating an object of luster, an iridescent playground on which light dances. Time and care goes into its existence. Truths of the Universe are absorbed into each layer of its being. Maybe that’s why pearls are totems of wisdom and purity. It’s shrouded in ancient folklore; it’s made its way around the world. From Cleopatra to Chinese dragons, the Hindu Vishnu to Adam and Eve; the pearl has been around, and then some.
Pearls help women connect with their inner goddess. It nurtures new beginnings, and protects the wearer with fierce, motherly backbone (for all the Mamas in the house, you know what I’m talking about). The pearl is sometimes used as a magic re-balancing stone that irons out the kinks. Pearl powder is used, to this day, in elixirs and beauty products. So you know its power goes beyond skin-deep.
