women's sterling silver om and lotus necklace, made with a dainty and feminine faceted sterling silver ball chain. the vibration of the om mantra is said to be the first primordial sound of existence. it represents the manifestation of the supreme being, the universe, past, present, and future, and the cyclical nature of beginning, transformation, and end. it is the reflection of the absolute reality, without beginning or end, and embraces all that exists. when taken letter by letter, A-U-M represents the divine energy in its three elementary aspects: creation, preservation and liberation.
the lotus flower carries many meanings, as it grows in muddy water, rising and blooming above its environment. for yogis, it is a symbol of rising kundalini, activation of energy centers or chakras, the work and dedication it takes once the journey of awakening begins, compassion and understanding, and finally, enlightenment and realization. for buddhists, the lotus flower represents the rising and blooming above our environment to achieve enlightenment, the faith and purification needed upon the journey, the ability to see past wrongs, and compassion for all sentient beings. ultimately, it is a symbol of the many petaled lotus of the crown chakra, awakening to the perfection of self, and serves as a reminder of love, compassion, and true wisdom.
silver is excellent for mental and emotional releasing and cleansing. like the moon's energy, silver has a gentle, cool, soothing effect. it has been used for inflammation, fever, and stress, works with the pituitary and upper energy centers, and supports unconditional love and healing. generally, it has a cooling yin energy and increases the power of most stones.
