CHOOSE YOUR CHARM: LOTUS FLOWER, BUDDHA, OR OM.
THE LOTUS commonly serves as a sacred for purity, rebirth, and strength. Because lotuses rise from the mud without stains, they are often viewed as a symbol of purity.
The word BUDDHA literally means "awakened" or "that which has become aware".
In the OM symbol, the waking state is the bottom curve, the dream state is the middle curve, and the state of deep sleep (unconscious state) is the upper curve. Above the curves is the crescent which means maya or illusion, which blocks the route to the highest state of bliss or peacefulness. This highest state is represented by the dot at the topmost part of the Om symbol. It is the fourth state of consciousness and is absolutely wonderful and tranquil. There is a widely held belief that the fourth state is the condition wherein anyone can realistically link up with the Divine.
AGATE is an excellent stone for rebalancing and harmonizing body, mind and spirit. It cleanses and stabilizes the aura, eliminating and transforming negativity. Agate enhances mental function, improving concentration, perception and analytical abilities. It soothes and calms, healing inner anger or tension and creates a sense of security and safety.
