The Yin Yang is the symbol of balance of light and dark, or of masculine and feminine energies. Combined with the Carnelian, this necklace set represents balance and flow of the energy of opposites, within one's self, in a partnership, or with the world. Giving versus receiving, working versus playing, sleeping versus waking, listening versus speaking, taking the lead versus following. A balance is the ability to do both, not just one or the other.
Carnelian is a stone of the Sacral Chakra. It is the chakra that represents healthy emotions, relationships, energy, spontaneity, and zest for life.
Carnelian itself is said to be an energy booster, increasing vitality and determination.
It is thought to improve relationships, lessening anger, frustration, and jealousy.
The name Carnelian is derived from a word which means "flesh," and is so thought to be a rejuvenator for the body.
The pendulum shape has been used in many cultures for thousands of years. It has been used in religious symbolism, as well as by mystics to tell fortunes.
It is designed to swing freely and responds incredibly well to energy. It is rounded at the top and ends in a point at the bottom. This is thought to focus and concentrate the energy down to the point.
Pendulums are most often used in older styles of clocks. They symbolize the passage of time, and steady motion and progress once energy is applied.
Anyone can stop or start a pendulum, but once that energy is placed on it, it continues to remain in motion or motionless.
Where we choose to put our energy on a moment to moment basis determines our direction, and continually shapes the world around us.
Sizes vary as each pendant is unique, but the average size of this pendant is 20-25 mm, or 1-1 1/4" long, by 12 mm, or 1/2" at the widest point.
Set comes gift boxed.
