Ancient Egypt Box

Ancient Egypt (Kemet) had a rich spiritual culture, steeped in mythology and meaningful symbolism. The items in this month’s box celebrate the magic of this ancient and foundational tradition.


Egyptian Papyrus Art Card: 

Image of Queen Nefertari making an offering to Isis. Replica of a painting from Nefertari’s tomb in Thebes.



- 4"Glass Pyramid: 

The pyramids of Egypt were sacred places for spiritual initiation. The bottom of the pyramid signified the earth and denser planes while the point signified the Divine. Use this amazing tool to focus the light of the divine upon whatever is placed inside, to charge your intentions written on paper, or other meaningful objects such as crystals and ritual tools. 



- Egyptian Tarot Grand Trumps: 

Many believe that the origins of the tarot deck are Ancient Egypt. This Grand Trumps deck (the Major Arcana only) was created with Egyptian symbolism and the traditional tarot style cards. They offer an opportunity to deepen your connection with your higher mind, and guides. 


-Scarab Figurine: 

Representing the Sun God Ra, the scarab is a symbol of immortality, resurrection, transformation and protection.


-Eye of Horus Pendant: 
Horus is an ancient a sky god whose eyes were said to be the sun and the moon. The Eye of Horus was believed to have healing and protective power, and it was used as a protective amulet




-Lapis Lazuli Worry Stone:  
Lapis was a sacred and highly prized in Egypt, often used in the breastplates of priests. Lapis activates the higher mind, intellectual ability and the quest for knowledge, truth and understanding. It is excellent for learning, enhancing memory and it also encourages honesty. The indentation in this “worry stone” is rubbed with the thumb and used for relaxation.

Travel Altar Essentials Box

The experience of connecting with your deeper self can be enhanced with simple rituals, such as- lighting sage and/or a candle or holding a high vibration crystal or stone during meditation. This box contains a selection of items to adorn your altar space and add a ritual element to your spiritual practice. The box and its contents can also be used as a standalone altar. 




-Scented Candle in Brass Cloisonné Box: A tiny travel candle that will release a lovely scent in a reusable brass box.

-Citrine Cluster:  Citrine is a stone of manifestation, imagination, and personal will. It carries the power of the sun, and is warm, energizing and life giving. The radiant yellow color will increase the amount of light surrounding the body and protect the aura. It is also a stone of abundance and manifestation.

OR

Peacock Ore (Bornite):  a stone of happiness and joy, it is said to turn you in positive directions, and help channel happiness to others; generally a stone of upliftment, it brings you the ability to see and appreciate the joy available in every moment.

-Nataraja Figurine in Brass or Antique Brass: Nataraja is a depiction of the Hindu god Shiva as the cosmic ecstatic dancer. The birth of the world, its maintenance, its destruction, the soul's obscuration and liberation are the five acts of His dance. Learn more about Nataraja in this article.


-Travel Sage Energy Cleanse Kit: Contains a vial of sage leaves, abalone shell, stand for the shell and a box of matches. Light a single leaf and set in the shell to burn for your meditation, rituals, or when all you need is small amount of sage to freshen the energy of a space.


-Carved Wood Box: A lovely adornment that can be used to carry your ritual items and can serve as an altar as well.

-Brass, Glass, and Amethyst Pendulum and Chart: Using a pendulum is a simple way to access Divine guidance, communicate with spirit via your subconscious, higher self or your guides. Amethyst stimulates the higher mind to receive one’s spiritual power and to open to the insights, wisdom and guidance that is offered. 
    
      When using a pendulum, hold the top of chain in one hand over the chart and it to show you yes. It will swing in a clockwise or counter clockwise direction, or may swing to and fro or back and forth. This is the movement for yes. Ask the pendulum to show you the movement for no as well. I do this every time I use  a pendulum as a way to connect with it. These directions can change every time you use it so it is a good idea to establish this baseline every time.

This chart has letters, numbers, planets, and astrological symbols. Each symbol has an identical symbol directly opposite of it. This way, you can identify which letter or symbol you attention is being directed too when the pendulum swings between them. 

Check out this great video on how to use a pendulum...



Ritual:
When you have some quiet time for yourself, set up your altar space, arranging the items in a way that feels pleasing to you, including other sacred objects and crystals that you may already have.

Take a moment to cleanse your pendulum of energies it may have picked up before it arrived, you can do this by lighting a sage leaf, and placing it in your shell, then passing the pendulum over the smoke.

Light you candle and meditate on the questions you would like to ask, connecting with your infinite self.

Take some time to connect with your pendulum, you can ask it to tell you what letter your name starts with, this way you can see how it interacts with the chart. The more you use the pendulum the clearer the connection will be.

How to use a crystal grid
"A crystal grid is a predefined set of multiple crystals arranged in a harmonic sacred geometric relationship.  This combination and arrangement of crystals works synergistic to converts and focuses the external energy which impinges upon it in a variety of forms (e.g. sound, light, electromagnetism) into a unified energy field tuned to a particular need or requirement.  The unified energy field that is created allows for vibrational interactions of crystal energies with the aura, spirit, and mind of the human body consistent with the prescribed healing and wellness design." -CrystalVaults

The crystal grid is used to arrange crystals and stones to amplify their energetic properties. There is usually a center stone that holds the properties and intention. When setting up your grid be creative and use your intuition and personal aesthetic to add the rest of your crystals & stones. There are many different ideas on how to charge your grid and the following links will provide some ideas. The process of creating the grid may be all you feel you need.

There is some great info here, at one of my favorite crystal resources- Crystal Vaults

Ritual Idea: this box is meant to inspire you to create a personal ritual for yourself. Unwind, light up your oil warmer and take a bath, or meditate for a bit. Maybe do some yoga or turn up the music and dance! Really take a moment to love up on yourself! The tea ritual is an opportunity to charge the rose quartz with some loving energies (for you, from you), and then drink this loving energy in the form of a healing tea and gem essence elixir. Give yourself a reading, ask your spirit what it wants you to know right now. Find ways to take care of yourself as often as you can. The whole world benefits from your self love, I promise.

Chakra Box

Chakra is a Sanskrit word that means wheel or disk. The chakras are wheels of energy corresponding to massive nerve centers in the body. Each of the seven main chakras contains bundles of nerves and major organs as well as our psychological, emotional, and spiritual states of being. When any of these chakras are out of balance, it impacts the related system as well as the whole. The December Chakra Box is a collection of sacred objects to use in your sacred space and rituals to align and balance these cosmic energy centers.
