Items for the body, mind and spirit

The Triquetra symbol  has Celtic, Pagan and Christian roots.  
It has been found on stones in northern Europe that date back to before 1000 ad. It is also found in the Book of Kells, an illuminated manuscript that was likely created on the island of Iona (off the Scottish coast) around AD 800.  The Triquetra symbol has been found on rune stones in Northern Europe and on early Germanic coins, and it is a symbol associated with the Norse God Odin.  

For Pagans the Triquetra represents the threefold nature of the maiden, mother and crone.  It also represents life, death and rebirth.  

In Celtic lore it represents the three forces of nature: earth, air and water. 

For Christians, the Triquetra represents the Trinity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit – three persons as one God.  Sometimes, the traditional Triquetra symbol is accompanied by a circle. The circle can be interpreted as a symbol of eternity, whether that be the eternity of God’s love or the eternal circle of life.

Tree of Life
All major civilizations such as Egyptians, Mesopotamian, Sumerian, Native American and Mayan have mentioned the Tree of Life in their art work.  It seems that such depiction of life and nature is ancient wisdom.  The tree of life in some cultures is considered to be a link between the three worlds, heavens, earth, and the underworld.

The tree of life is a reminder to live in harmony with nature.  After all, trees soak up carbon dioxide from the air, producing life-giving oxygen in return.  In fact, a medium-sized tree generates the same amount of oxygen as each one of us needs to breathe.  A tree is literally a Tree of Life :)

In Celtic lore, the Druids believed the Sacred Tree had the power to reveal messages from the gods.  They believed all living things including trees and plants were spiritual, mystical beings.  They believed trees in particular were a source of great wisdom with the power to bridge the gap between the upper and lower worlds and bring blessings from the gods.

The Tree of Life symbol represents different qualities like wisdom, strength, protection, beauty, bounty and regeneration.  It also represents stability, the inner self, integrity, balance and the cycle of life.
Wearing Tree of Life jewellery or hanging a picture of the Tree of Life brings positive energy and well-being.

The Egyptian Ankh is a symbol for the power to give and sustain life.  It symbolizes eternal life and bestows immortality on anyone who possesses it.  The ankh serves as a conduit for the power of life that permeates the universe.    In Egyptian artwork the ankh was held by the gods to the nose of the deceased kings to represent the breath of life given in the after-world.  There is a myth that the ankh was made by the God Ptah so that Isis could bring Osiris back to life.  Isis later placed a spell upon the ankh so those who wear it would be blessed and protected.

Eye of Shiva 
Shiva shell has a unique brown swirl on a creamy white or pale pink background.  It is the protective door at the opening of the Turban snail shell.  One side has a beautiful spiral, the other side is a swirl of colours that look like an eye. When the snail sensed danger, this protective door would close eye side out to make the predator believe it was the eye of a much larger creature.Towards the end of the snail's natural life this protective door detaches and sinks to the seabed.  

This lovely shell has long been worn to ward off "The evil eye". It is said to bring good luck and to protect the wearer from harm.  Shiva shells are named after the god Shiva and symbolize his third eye of wisdom and foresight.  The spiral is a primordial symbol of energy.

Horus was the ancient Egyptian sky god who was usually depicted as a falcon. His right eye was associated with the sun Ra. The eye symbol represents the marking around the eye of the falcon, including the “teardrop” marking sometimes found below the eye. 

The Eye of Horus was believed to have healing and protective power, and it was used as a protective amulet. In Ancient Egypt the Eye of Horus was used as a medical measuring device, using the mathematical proportions of the eye to determine the proportions of ingredients in medical preparations.
