In keeping with Egyptian pharaoh lineage, I have created two bracelets, Sehkmet I and II, which can be worn separately or combined and stacked together for a truly regal look.
Sehkmet, one of the oldest known Egyptian deities, is the goddess of destruction and war, but also the patron of physicians, healers and priests. Her dual nature lent her the title of both Lady of Terror and Lady of Life. Above all, Sehkmet is the protector of Ma'at...protector of balance and justice.
Sehkmet II blends 10mm hematite, carnelian and lava beads with dark amber pave rondelles and copper/gold daisy spacers. The intensity of the glimmering Egyptian sun and heat of the dessert is well represented in this piece. Sehkmet II was also designed to be worn between two Sehkmet II bracelets, as can be seen in the bottom photo.
Each bracelet comes with your choice of KUMARA diffuser oil sample to be applied to only the lava beads. Small and large bracelet sizes are approximately 7 and 8 inches.
Hematite is a stone that is most commonly - and most strongly - used to ground or stabilize and for protection. In spiritual work, hematite is an excellent stone to help keep yourself connected to the Earth plane, as some would say via the silver cord, so that your spiritual learnings and travels can be done safely and things learned can be brought back to daily life more easily.
Hematite is used to bring mental organization and is very grounding and calming. It can help with original thinking, logical thinking, and mathematics, any type of thinking which requires significant mental organization.
Emotionally, hematite decreases negativity. This lowering of negativity can benifit by helping balance the body/mind/spirit connection. It also is said to balance the meridiians, boost self-esteem, and self-confidence.
Carnelian encourages acceptance of the cycle of life and helps remove the fear of death. As an ancient stone, it was used to protect the dead on their journey to the afterlife. It gives courage and promotes positive life choices.[Hall, 94]
Carnelian is a crystal of action, overcoming procrastination or indecision. It encourages one to stop waiting for dreams to appear, and stimulates the courage to embrace change and Divine Will to begin to make one's highest goals happen. [Ahsian, 93]
Carnelian encourages an awareness of the connection between the emotional state and the inner condition of the self. It promotes a spiritual energy conducive to awakening one's talents and perceptions of surroundings, and for offering love in return for love. Carnelian in shades of pink-orange, especially encourage love between parents and children, and between parents and parents. [Melody, 183]
Carnelian may be used, with advanced training, to see into the past. It carries the stories and records of our planet, and reflects its light energy back in the color of our physical world. It stimulates a deeper love and appreciation for the beauty and gifts of the earth. [Raphael, 140]
Properties: The elemental powers of fire and earth, lava rocks are rich in minerals from deep in the earth's core. Born of fire, these molten creations raise to the surface and become porous creations of earth. Fire is one of the four classical elements in ancient Greek philosophy and science. It was commonly associated with the qualities of energy, assertiveness, and passion, while earth was commonly associated with qualities of practicality, restraint and materialism.
Lava rocks embrace both elements. These red and black lava rocks are a wonderful tool for the root chakra. The can be used for grounding, protection and making a connection to the earth. They allow us to "root" scattered energy, find focus and bring balance to our center by embracing practicality. This stone is beneficial when your 1st and/or 2nd chakras are energetically weak. They encourage stimulation.
