“The pastel rainbow colors of the Abalone shell enhance feelings of peace, beauty, compassion and love. Work with the Abalone shell when you are facing tough emotional issues. Abalone will soothe the nerves and encourage a calm demeanor. Abalone Shell helps to gently open our psychic and intuitive connections. Abalone Shell is an excellent companion when needing guidance in relationships. It enhances the four C’s–communication, cooperation, commitment and compromise, which lead to harmony and balance. Abalone shell enhances expression, in both word and deed. It allows us to understand both sides of any issue by placing us in the other persons “shoes”. The Abalone shell has been tossed and turned in the ebb and flow of the ocean for many years. Through this process, its true beauty shines through. The Abalone shell is a perfect gift for those who have survived traumatic experiences, to let them know that while they may have been tossed and turned themselves, in the end, their true beauty shines for all to see.
Physically, Abalone Shells strengthens the immune system, energize the body and aid in the assimilation of proteins.
