Pearls for Perception

Pearls are sometimes called the teardrops of the moon, as they naturally carry the calming, peaceful healing energy of the sea, and are very protective. Greeks believe that pearls cement engagements, promote marital bliss and prevent newlywed women from crying. Traditionally, pearls are gifts to the bride to wear for her wedding day, as a symbol of faith, purity, and innocence. They are also thought to ensure good health, longevity and attract fame and wealth.

Yogically, pearls connect with the third eye, known as the Ajna chakra, which is the 6th chakra of the body. Located at the point in between the two brows, where the two physical eyes see the past and the present, the 3rd eye reveals the future. When balanced, this chakra insures focus, insight, and tranquility. If out of balance, it can amplify problems, become prone to oversensitivity, lead to indecisiveness, or create over-reactive tendencies. Over time this could manifest in bad dreams or even create physical disorders like headaches or eye problems.

Pearls help to counterbalance these potential weaknesses. The 3rd eye opens up the potential for soul realization, cosmic awareness, and perception beyond duality, Essentially, you attain the realization: “That I am, I am That” or “Being – Consciousness – Bliss.”

If pearls sound like the energy you are looking for, it’s recommended that you practice the Indra Nittri Meditation, found online at The Kundalini Research Institute. Try this for 40 days and see what happens.

A pearl is not a crystal or a mineral, it belongs to the oyster, whose shell has just been sliced open, and now the oyster has been sliced out of it's shell. If you have to kill a thing in order to attain some sort of mystic enlightenment, I think you
are missing the forest for the trees.
