About the Cowrie Shell:
 
Destined to transfer good luck, fortune and material wealth to those in its possession, the cowry shell is considered a deeply spiritual and highly valued object in African culture. The cowrie carries with it the blessing of Moté, ancient deity and goddess of water, also affectionately referred to as ‘Mother of Water’. 


Symbolism of the Buffalo:
 
Considered a gift from the Great Spirit to the Native American people, the buffalo represents: wisdom, patience, prosperity, gratitude, abundance, strength, stability, consistency and blessing. The buffalo teaches us to remain well grounded, find strength to carry on our path, to be in harmony with Mother Earth and to connect with the sacredness of life.
