Your Life Your Journey Necklace
The Your Life Your Journey Necklace is so energetic. There are symbols in our lives that we believe protects us and brings us luck. These symbols have been an important thing in people's lives since forever, and including these symbols in my jewelry has always been my first priority. Sometimes we also need positive affirmations alongside the symbols, words that impact us positively, that bring us hope. I wanted to combine all this in this necklace. I crafted this necklace so it brings good luck, guidance and protection to its owner. The pendant features a combination of Ganesha and Om symbols and Buddha's words to enlighten our path in the back. I hope it makes the owner very happy.
The Om Mani Padme Hum is a deeply meaningful mantra. Om, is a sacred sound that is said to be the sound of the universe itself. It connects all living beings directly to the universe. Mani, meaning jewel, symbolizes the intention to become enlightened, and achieve true compassion and love. Padme, meaning lotus, symbolizes wisdom, especially the wisdom of realizing and embracing impermanence. Hum, symbolizes purity and indivisibility, and represents the spirit of enlightenment. This mantra is seen as a condensed form of all Buddhist teachings.
The Evil Eye bead is a prominent symbol in Turkish and many other cultures, and is highly protective. Evil Eye is also called nazar. Evil Eye beads reflect ill intent and jealousy from the 'evil eye' back to the person thinking of it, hence protecting the wearer. They also bring good luck and are often found hanging in houses, workplaces and cars. They're also often given as a gift to loved ones.
Ganesha is an elephant god that symbolizes many things. Lord Ganesha is believed to clear the paths in our lives. He symbolizes wisdom, understanding, and intellect that one must have to attain perfection. The wide mouth of Ganesha symbolizes the human desire to enjoy life. His large ears mark him as a perfect person who possesses the ability to listen to others and assimilate ideas. Ganesha's large ears let him listen to prayers and needs of his subjects. The trunk can hold everything in the universe. It also symbolizes the Om mantra which is the sound of the universe. The two tusks symbolize human aspects of wisdom and emotion. Elephant eyes symbolize surrendering one's pride and attaining humility.
In the back of the pendant is words of Buddha, "What you think you become, What you feel you attract, What you imagine you create."
