Black Tourmaline Sphere Flower of Life
“A sphere (also called a crystal ball or orb) is a three-dimensional object shaped like a ball. Every point on the surface is the same distance from the center. Virtually every type of stone has been polished into a sphere, so the choice of color and size is plentiful. This shape is helpful during times when you are connecting with the oneness of all life. Spheres are pleasant to gaze at during meditative practice. Use a sphere to help focus your attention on receiving intuitive information to help yourself or another person. Use it as a companion tool during readings or in a work setting on your desk as a decorative item to help you “hear and read between the lines.”
Said to be the basic template for everything in existence; all geometric forms can be found within it, including sacred geometry shapes like the Platonic Solids, Metatron’s Cube, and the Merkaba. The Flower of Life symbolizes creation and reminds us of the unity of everything: we’re all built from the same blueprint.
