Symbol meaning

Conchs symbolize many things. Their slow passage reminds us to slow down, stop and focus on the essentials. As each conch is its own unique individual, it helps us see the uniqueness of our own lives. Clams and shells may have cracks, be missing parts, or have lost some of their original color. Thus, they remind us that life is not always perfect. Conchs and shells have been an important part of different religions and spirituality throughout the ages, serving as symbols and even ritual objects in, among other things, Christianity, Hinduism, among the indigenous peoples of the Americas and the Pacific, and in the Mediterranean. Conch shells are associated with, among other things, the Omphalos, the pole of the world in ancient Greece, and have been carved into ancient monuments around the world. The characteristic spiral structure of seashells is created in nature according to the rule of the golden ratio. Their spiral shape creates a force vortex that weaves energy outwards or inwards. It reminds you of the cycle of life, spiritual growth, change and the journey to your inner self. For those who believe in rebirth, seashells and seashells represent a new beginning.
