Handmade Imp Mother Of Pearl Amulet With Agate, Lodalite & Olive Korean Jade
Welcome to viewing this lovely little piece called ‘Imp’, I clearly had sunshine and warm sands in my mind when I made this piece.
You might ask why ‘Imp’ Most of the names and ‘ideas’ about the ‘personality’ of the piece just come to me intuitively and are hard to ignore. To me an Imp isn’t a bad thing, it is a sometimes mischievous mystical being wanting to get up to fun! That is how it was for me in this particular instance. The impending Summer, sunshine, more time outdoors enjoying Mother Nature came up with this formation of frolicking. Of course who wouldn’t want a little fun? I guess the future Owner of this piece will.
An amulet is an object, usually worn, that is considered to have powers that will protect the person. In many cases, it is the same as a talisman; but a talisman may be carried, where an amulet is usually worn. Both are considered to be protection against some form of evil and are common to numerous cultures ancient and present. Faith in the protective object was often greater for many in past times, however, when more folkloric beliefs were accepted. Mother of pearl in China is often considered to be a good luck amulet.
This necklace has been hand knotted with silk within an infusion containing the ancient healing oils of frankincense.
I tend to intuitively sing what comes to me when making these creations. This time it was the mantra Saa Taa Naa Maa. You can find out the specifics of this important mantra here: Saa Taa Naa Maa
Getting to the ancient root of it all, mantra, at its core, is the basis of all religious traditions, scriptures, and prayers. According to Pandit Vamadeva Shastri (Dr. David Frawley), when carefully chosen and used silently, mantras are said to have the ability to help alter your subconscious impulses, habits, and afflictions. Mantras, when spoken or chanted, direct the healing power of Prana (life force energy) and, in traditional Vedic practices, can be used to energize and access spiritual states of consciousness.
At the end of the day, the mantra is meant to bring you back to simplicity. We live in such a complex world that it’s easy to get lost in all the details. Mantras can help you circle back to the simplistic approach to life and focus on those things that inspire you and truly make you happy.
