The Stop and Eat the Roses amethyst agate geode crystal skull and snail sculpture has a fun energy of happiness and lightheartedness, suggesting that we relax and not take things too seriously. There are plenty of opportunities to be serious, and of course we must all work to meet our responsibilities. At the same time, it is important that we take a break and appreciate our world, our life, our accomplishments, and ourselves. The Stop and Eat the Roses crystal skull emphasizes the value of reminding ourselves why we endeavor to achieve our goals, and of allowing ourselves to experience the rewards of our efforts.
Stop and Eat the Roses encourages us to fully experience our feelings and thoughts as we react to the world around us. When we take our time and pay attention to how we are affected by what we see and encounter, not only do we begin to develop a greater understanding of our world and of other people, but we also gain insight and wisdom about ourselves as well.
The Stop and Eat the Roses crystal skull helps us to understand that regardless of what we are experiencing, contemplating, or studying, there is always an element of natural beauty, fascination, and purpose for everything. Even the things that seem to have no positive aspects and serve no beneficial purpose are necessary, and if we are open to seeing it, actually do have good reasons for existing. The Stop and Eat the Roses crystal skull and snail sculpture helps us to understand this same principal is applicable to the people in our lives that we do not understand, and that we may find challenging to offer love and unconditional acceptance to.
Snails are considered to connect the environments of land and water, and so are also seen as symbolic of the relationship and connection between the spiritual and the physical worlds. Snails are sensitive and also represent patience, contentment, and the concepts of divine order and a perfect time for every experience and everything. The snail is a perfect symbol for abundance and plenitude, and is also associated with fertility, the balance of masculine and feminine aspects, the harmonious experience of life, the moon, and the cycles and passing of time. Snails symbolize protection and defense, safety and security, and accelerated healing, and so can be seen as symbols of independence, self assurance, and inner peace.
The spiral shell of the snail represents growth, development, evolution, and enlightenment, as well as the repeating cycle of life, regeneration, death, and reincarnation. The coiled nature of the snail's home is also seen by some as representative of the motion of the celestial bodies in the heavens, including the path of the moon around the earth, the earth as it orbits the sun, the solar system as it travels through the galaxy, and the cosmic journey of the galaxy through the universe. All of this coincides with the concept of moving with one's home, or, more accurately, being at home and secure as one moves through new experiences and opens oneself to encounter the unknown.
Many snails also exhibit a growth pattern that demonstrates the Golden Ratio. Having been discovered numerable times throughout recorded history, often by asking very simple and unrelated questions, the Golden Ratio, or Fibonacci Sequence, is a consistently repeated pattern of growth and evolution in nature. This Golden Ratio is considered one of the forms of Sacred Geometry which reflects the universe, its pure forms, and the dynamic relationship we share with nature - the inseparable relationship of the part to the whole. By studying the Sacred Geometry of one thing we find meaning and structural insight into the workings of the inner self and other processes of the universe. Incredibly this spiral growth pattern occurs over and over in the universe around us, from the molecular structure of our DNA, to most plants, including cauliflower, cacti and succulents, daisies and sunflowers, many, many trees, and pinecones and pineapples, to the shells of many invertebrates, and so on all the way out to the astronomical scale of the Milky Way and other distant galaxies! The shells demonstrating the Golden Ratio are considered to directly connect one to the Golden Mean Spiral energies to promote personal growth, self-awareness, and the evolutionary consciousness of the Earth and the higher consciousness we all share.
