Lemniscate ~ Infinity

secretsoftheserpent

The lemniscate is the number eight (8) on its side (∞). Most see this as the infinity symbol. This symbol has something to do with the infinite, but not in the way that most people think. I’m always telling people they are infinite and need to realize their power, but this symbol has more to do with the communication with the infinite or your higher self. I have also seen where religions say this is the symbol of the devil and conspiracy buffs say it is an illuminati symbol. Time to illuminate.

Here is a very interesting stone for you.

The equilateral cross symbolizes the Tetrahedron. The Tetrahedron, ( four-sided pyramid ) is the geometrical principle underlying many types of both organic and inorganic molecules, providing the microscopic structure of diamonds and of the amino acids that are the building blocks of all life-forms on planet Earth.

As a stone that emerges with dramatic force from the depths of the earth, obsidian is believed by many to bring hidden emotions to the surface. This makes it extremely useful in releasing long-held stresses and buried traumas.

Obsidian is found only in volcanic areas, where it forms from rapidly cooled lava. Born from the fire within the heart of the planet, Obsidian can bring a strong sense of determination to conquer fear and face reality in a practical, grounded, and courageous way.

In general, Obsidian is a very grounding and protective stone. It is used as a great cleanser of negative energies, helping to remove not only negativity experienced in the environment but also that of one’s own emotions, such as anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, etc. Obsidian is often used for healing and releasing energy blockages and has a tendency to work quickly to move truths to the surface…

You may know the chicory root as a popular coffee substitute. In fact, it was widely used during the Great Depression and World War II when coffee was in short supply or too expensive. Today, it is used around the world and in the US, particularly in New Orleans, as a natural caffeine-free substitute for coffee. However, it’s much more than a rich drink.

Chicory has a long history as a cleansing medicinal herb. In fact, the ancient Egyptians were known to consume large amounts of chicory to purify the liver and blood. Romans were also known to have used the root to help with blood purification. Medieval monks cultivated the plant, and it is widely used in Europe and the Mediterranean where it natively grows.

Called kasni in the Far East, chicory contains tannin phlobaphenes and several forms of sugar. The seeds have carminative and are useful as a…
