CHRYSOCOLLA: With its combination of blues and greens, the Chrysocolla crystal meaning represents a combination of energies related to love, growth, and communication. The refreshing and rejuvenating Chrysocolla crystal properties enhance your life-force energy, inspiring you to bring fresh energy into your pursuits. The soothing water-like aspects also adds an infusion of calming energy into your life, helping you to move fluidly and harmoniously through all aspects of your life. Call upon the Chrysocolla crystal healing properties whenever you need to connect with its supportive energy.
BESOM: is a symbol of banishing, fertility, and cleansing. Its earlier use was specifically for Western European fertility rites. These Western European rites are the reason why people think witches ride on their besom. Upon delivery, use the besom to do some sweeping around the birth site. The besom is a potent symbol of fertility and doing this will also banish negative energies from the mother and the baby. Doing banishing as early as the day the child is born will benefit the him or her greatly. While it does not usually touch the ground, it is used to "sweep out" the negative energies in a room, and is often held a few inches above the ground to do so.
SUNFLOWER: Usually, sunflowers are taken to symbolize loyalty, longevity, and adoration. Most of this symbolic meaning comes from the namesake of the plant, the sun itself.
SUN: represents life, influence and strength. It can symbolise energy, will, being clear and self. It can represent the Self in relation to the cosmic whole.
SUN is a symbol of power, growth, health, passion and the cycle of life.
STAR: represents divine guidance and protection. It symbolizes purity and good luck and suggests that you have reached a turning point in your life. Star evokes aspiration, inspiration and imagination. It can take you on a journey of wonder, dreams, pursuits, magic and creative brilliance.
