    Abalone Mantras

    Abalone properties connect a being to their highest chakras. Abalone chakras are primarily the crown, third eye and heart chakras. The mother-of-pearl that lines the abalone shell, in tandem with the shell itself, are said to activate intuitive qualities like clarity in regards to situations, sensitivity and imagination.

    Holding abalone during cleansing rituals lends to a feeling of purity. Abalone is thought to have a divine energy, and using it with sage in the act of space clearing invokes the spirit of the ocean and uses your highest chakras as a conduit to the divine realm.

    To perform a cleansing ritual, you’ll need a wand or bundle of dried white sage or dried loose leaf sage, and an abalone shell.

    Simply light the sage stick, blow it out, and allow the abalone to catch the falling ash. all set it inside the genuine abalone shell.

    You may walk around the four corners of your space, purify your crystals and your auric field.

    Use a feather or your hand to send the smoke over your body, from your feet to your head and back down to your feet again. Visualize your spirit being cleansed of all the toxic energy clinging to it. Then move toward the areas of your space that receive a lot of traffic, being cautious not to forget areas like corners, doorways, windows and closets.

    You can practice this ritual at anytime, but it is keenly helpful to rid negative energy after an argument, when moving into a new home, returning home from travels or places where there were crowds, when you begin a new job, after guests leave your space and after a healing or exercise practice.

    As you do this, repeat the mantra:

    “I invoke the spirits of Air, Earth, Fire and Water to cleanse this space and bless it with positive light.”

    Some believe that fire shouldn’t come in direct contact with a water vessel like Abalone, so try coating the bottom of the shell with some sand to avoid scorching the mother of pearl interior.
