These earrings were handcrafted by myself and I paired the two charms because Shiva is Ganesha's Father. The beads are Garnet and Jet--associated with the Root and Sacral Chakras; good for grounding, protection, vitality, passion, and a strong life force.
These earrings hang about 1 3/4 inches
Garnet is a stone of sexual power, it helps to release past wounds. A stone of stability, and regeneration, this is the perfect stone to help get you through times of change in your life. Helps create order, and brings vitality.
"Jet, though known as black amber, is not amber at all. It is driftwood, primarily of the family Araucariaceae, that has fossilized, metamorphosed to lignite coal. At high magnification, the structure of the wood can still be seen even though its origin as a tree is millions of years in the past. In Whitby, England jet is mined that came from the Jurassic era around 180 million years ago.
"Jet's energies of purification of energy and vibrations bring about protection on many levels. It has been used extensively for protection against evil and all negative energies. It is also a powerful protector against psychic attacks. Jet also has energies making it protective to finances and business and brings stability to these realms. It reaches the height of these properties traditionally when worn as a pendant or necklace set in silver. In purification processes, jet may absorb some of the unwanted negative energy, so it should be cleared / cleansed fully after each use, and it will be happy to work with you again.
"In the spiritual realms, jet has many uses. Protection is one, particularly against sickness and violence. It is also used for clairvoyance, past life work, and psychic work in general, as it purifies the vibration of the information coming in. Jet is used to remove energetic attachments, particularly those from other people, and it sloughs away negative energies. This makes it a particularly good choice for assisting in clearing the aura. Jet is used for spiritual quests, spiritual advancement, and to assist in opening one to awakening with a rise of Kundalini energy. Jet is used in rituals and magic to bring up and channel Earth energy including manifestation of will and desires.
"Jet is a stone kind to people in difficulty and fear and has a very calming energy. Healing grief is a primary purpose for jet in the emotional realm."
"Nataraja or Nataraj, the dancing form of Lord Shiva, is a symbolic synthesis of the most important aspects of Hinduism, and the summary of the central tenets of this Vedic religion. The term 'Nataraj' means 'King of Dancers' (Sanskrit nata = dance; raja = king). In the words of Ananda K. Coomaraswamy, Nataraj is the "clearest image of the activity of God which any art or religion can boast of…A more fluid and energetic representation of a moving figure than the dancing figure of Shiva can scarcely be found anywhere,"
"This cosmic dance of Shiva is called 'Anandatandava,' meaning the Dance of Bliss, and symbolizes the cosmic cycles of creation and destruction, as well as the daily rhythm of birth and death. The dance is a pictorial allegory of the five principle manifestations of eternal energy — creation, destruction, preservation, salvation, and illusion. According to Coomerswamy, the dance of Shiva also represents his five activities: 'Shrishti' (creation, evolution); 'Sthiti' (preservation, support); 'Samhara' (destruction, evolution); 'Tirobhava' (illusion); and 'Anugraha' (release, emancipation, grace).
"The overall temper of the image is paradoxical, uniting the inner tranquility, and outside activity of Shiva."
"Ganesh (also spelled Ganesa or Ganesha and known as Ganapati, Vinayaka and Pillaiyar) is the Lord of Good Fortune who provides prosperity, fortune and success. He is the Lord of Beginnings and the Remover of Obstacles of both material and spiritual kinds."
