To dream about a rainbow is a good omen and it's said to bring good luck to the dreamer. This pendulum is the direct result of a dream - my dream, full of vivid detail, in which I saw the clear, perfect connection between the rainbow of the chakras in a chain and the gentle grounding, healing energy of rainbow obsidian as they combined into a single force contained and protected by a pentacle. I knew of course that I had to make it immediately - before the image or the meaning could fade. To my delight, the real life version of the dream pendulum is as exactly it appeared, a perfection of natural stone and symbolic energies.
"Rainbow Dream" is a Rainbow Obsidian orb on a detachable sterling sliver chain containing the seven major chakras in garnet, carnelian, golden jade, malachite, turquoise, lapis lazuli, and amethyst, topped with a sterling silver pentacle fob.The chain is beaded with seven semi-precious stones, each representing one of the main seven chakras, All stones are genuine. Overall length of pendulum is 7 7/8". The chain length is 5 7/8". Weight-stone measures 1". All measurements are approximate. Chain, clasp, charm and connectors are sterling silver. Please note: As these are natural stones, depth of color, translucence, size, and patterns in each stone will definitely vary.
Obsidian is a healing and grounding stone that resonates with the earth. Obsidian protects against negativity and hostility. It brings truth to the surface and dispels feelings of inferiority. It draws out mental stress and tensions and protects the meek from abuse. Obsidian is related to the base chakra.
Rainbow Obsidian is the stone for soft-hearted, gentle souls. It is particularly useful in helping to dissolve barriers born of fear or shock. It facilitates the expansion of consciousness and enhances your senses to help you explore and understand deep mysteries.
Chakras are spinning portals into the body's complex energy system. A chakra acts as a focal point for reception and transmission of life force energies. Chakras influence all aspects of a person's well-being: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. Their purpose is to vitalize the physical body and facilitate the development of self. Keeping your chakras balanced and aligned is key to leading a vibrant, healthy, and fulfilling life. There are seven major chakras. Starting at the base of the spine they are 1. Base, 2. Sacral, 3. Solar Plexus, 4. Heart, 5. Throat, 6. Brow (or Third Eye), and 7. Crown.
The pentacle symbol is a circle around a pentagram - a 5 point star. It both contains and protects. The circle symbolizing eternity, infinity, and the cycles of life and nature, touches all five points of the star within, demonstrating that spirit, earth, air, water and fire are all connected. In the Tarot, the pentacle is a symbol of earthly matters, health, money, home, but it also relates to peace, faith, charity, abundance, equality, generosity, reciprocity, trust, responsibility, groundedness and determination.
This piece is so pretty and unusual you will want to wear it. There are four great benefits to wearing your pendulum: 1. You'll have a pendulum close at hand, ready to use whenever you need one. 2. By keeping it close to your heart, the stone becomes tuned your rhythms and energy. 3. Receive the benefit of the stone's natural healing energy while you wear it. 4. It's beautiful! Show it off. Let it accentuate your personal style. Here's how: This piece has a clasp that allows you to detach the weight-stone from the chain so you can wear it as a pendant - simply by slipping it onto your own neck chain or satin cord. Or you can wear the whole piece by using a pendulum-to-pendant adapter (see related items below) or simply by threading a neck chain or cord through one of the links in the pendulum's chain and letting both ends dangle.
This pendulum is made with sterling silver and contains no base metal parts. Sterling silver is a beautiful and durable alloy of 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper, which conducts energy well - and pendulums are all about energy. Pendulums made with sterling silver are more sensitive to subtle energy vibrations than those that are constructed with base metals (alloys that use nickle, zinc, lead, and/or tin). Caring for your sterling silver is easy. If worn or used a lot, sterling will eventually oxidize and develop a lovely patina - a nice warm glow accentuated by darkened (tarnished) areas. You can either leave it this way, or if you prefer a bright and shiny surface, gently polish with a treated cloth to remove the oxidation. Never use abrasive cleansers or expose to salts. Store in a cool dry place.
