|Wooden Offering Bowl - Waiola
"Waiola" means "Violet Flower" in the Hawaiian language.
You can use this bowl for your offerings or for meditations.
When I wake up each morning, I love putting my favorite stones that
appeal to me that day in the bowl so that I can have them near me at my
work station or desk to have their energy near by. I do the same thing at
night, putting stones, or small mementos in the bowl near my bedside, for
mediation, healing, or for remembering.
I hand burned the Lotus design into the bowl.
A beautiful hand made Dichroic cabochon is set into the center of the
Lotus, the cabochon is sparkling Pinks, Greens, and Gold.
There are 6 Lepidolite stones set into the design as well.
Lepidolite is said to encourage independence and setting and attaining
goals. It helps to protect from outside influences, relieves every day
stress, promotes restful sleep, attracts good luck, and dispels negativity.
Throughout many cultures over time, the Lotus has been a
powerful image and a spiritual symbol. In Hindu, Buddhist and Egyptian
religions, the lotus is considered a sacred flower.
Among it's many meanings and significance, the lotus is a symbol of
"spontaneous" generation, and so it also represents divine birth, spiritual
development and creation itself.
This is a natural wood bowl that I found at a thrift shop which I have
lovingly re-purposed, so there is a little wear on the bowl, but no cracks or
major imperfections. The bottom side is stamped "Japan", I have also
burned my signature initials into the bottom side.
The bowl measures 6 inches in diameter
and stands just under 2 inches high.
