Pick A Shell And Find Out What It Reveals About You
Look at the three shells pictured above. Which one are you most attracted to? Go with the one you are drawn to the most at this very moment. Be confident, don’t second guess your decision!
This shell is very different on the back as to what it’s like inside. On the outside, it is rough, with spikes protruding to protect the creature that once inhabited this shell. It was once white on the outside but now is brown primarily/grey from a plaque buildup from living in the sea. It’s difficult to see from the photo, but the inside of this shell is smooth, light brown, with a beautiful soft apricot color inside.
Choosing this shell indicates that you have weathered the storms and are now much stronger and wiser for the experience. However, You wear the scars, but this is something that doesn’t need to be permanent. Like the plaque on the shell, it can be washed off. You are a sensitive and gentle being, and protection has been necessary for you and is essential for you.
I feel that you find it challenging to be around negative people, and you need to limit your time with those who are negative to protect your delicate nature. And yes, I can hear what you’re saying; sometimes, it’s impossible to stay entirely away from negative people – perhaps a family member, someone at work, or even a client. In this case, it’s essential to use some protection ritual, such as imagining yourself in a cocoon of white light and asking the angels to protect you – Archangel Michael can assist with his blue cloak of protection. Or perhaps visualize mirrors around you, reflecting that negativity but transmuting it into love.
Know that the angels love you and want you to be able to keep your energy – not feel drained from those who feed off your beautiful energy. Ensure you have plenty of time to renew and build your power back up. You would also benefit from some energetic healing as well.
This shell is smoother on the outside than on the inside. The photo shows the ridges, which expand from the base out to the top… almost like rays of sunshine beaming out. And like this shell, you beam oodles of light out to those you come into contact with. It would be best to be careful not to spread yourself too thin and become resentful and hard to give too much to people. Learn to say ‘No’ once in a while. This does not mean you stop sending people that beautiful ray of light. Just be aware of your own needs and set boundaries for yourself. You’re important, too, and you must be mindful that receiving is just as important as giving – balance is the key.
This shell has excellent symmetry, and like the shell, you like everything to be just right in your world, simple, balanced, or otherwise, you tend to suffer from stress or worry. You would benefit from structure, routine, organization, and writing to-do lists. But know that things don’t have to be perfect all the time. Learn to go with the flow of life.
I feel that you strive for perfection, leading to disappointment when you don’t measure up. Know that you are good enough, whether you believe it or not. Perhaps look at striving for excellence instead of perfection, as excellence is more easily attainable and won’t leave you feeling you’re not good enough.
This shell is smooth all over with a beautiful pattern of spots on the outside. There is a slight crack in the shell, which I immediately overlooked. Inside, it has a teeth-like structure that almost warns me to stay out of my home.
If you choose this shell, it indicates it’s time to let go of something that no longer serves you. You feel the leopard can’t change its spots, but I beg to differ. You can change if you set your mind to it. It’s a choice you can make – no one can make it for you. Even if you feel that life has thrown you a curve ball and this is your lot, don’t give your power to someone else. When you allow others to take your life's reins, you provide them with the ability to create your life. Instead, take the reins and create the life you want. Perhaps you need to shed some limited beliefs based on childhood experiences. Maybe you need to let go of the past hurts and forgive so you can move on, really creating the life you deserve. Perhaps you need to speak up or have been speaking up, but instead of it coming from a place of love, the words have come from a place of hurt, anger, sadness, and frustration. Ask the angels to help you when speaking up… allow them to guide your words so they come from a place of love – from the heart.
Even with the crack, this shell is still beautiful. The crack does not go all the way through – just sitting on the surface. So bring yourself back to your soul essence and shed what no longer serves you on the surface.
