magickal uses of abalone
abalone and witchcraft
Abalone has many uses for Witchcraft. Abalone has been used by Kemetic (ancient Egyptian), Phoenician, Greek, Roman, Italian (Stregha), Celtic (Druidic and Faerie), French, Spanish, Portuguese, Gypsy, Norse, Germanic, British, Scottish, African, Polynesian, Japanese, Chinese, Asian Indian, and Native American witches.
A very popular use for abalone is for empowering love spells and for love talismans. Many beginners call it a love amulet, but amulets repel, while talismans attract. Thats why amulets are typically for protection. If you want to attract love, then you want a love talisman, not a love amulet.
Abalone amulets protect the witch from negative energy. Abalone talismans attract creativity to the witch. A magick amulet protects from some kind of energy, while a magick talisman draws in some kind of energy. A witch can magickally charge the same abalone as both an amulte and a talisman.
Witches can use abalone for meditation and chakra balancing.
Witches can use whole abalone shells as an incense holder.
Wearing abalone shell as a magickal amulet will protect the wearer from negativity, especially anger, depression, fear, and/or sadness. The abalone amulet should be charged with a protection spell and/or ritual (protection from negativity, protection from anger, protection from depression, protection from fear, protection from sadness).
As mentioned above, abalone can be used for empowering love spells (abalone is ruled by the planet Venus, often used in love spells) and empowered as a love talisman (abalone is special to Aphrodite). The Greek goddess of love, Aphrodite, sometimes rode the ocean waves on a giant abalone shell. The Romans called Aphrodite by the name Venus (still used as a planet name).
Wearing abalone shell as a magickal talisman will bring inspiration and creativity, especially in writing. This magick effect is strongest with creative writing, especially lyric poetry, but can also be used for business or school writing. The abalone talisman should be charged with a creativity spell and/or ritual. An abalone talisman can be used to help with inspiration and creativity in any art. Carrying or wearing an abalone talisman will help give you creative ideas, especially if magickally charged.
Because of the abalones magick energy protects from negativity, a magick abalone amulet is great for meditation.
