Gaia was the Greek embodiment of Mother Earth and was fabled to be one of the original gods, Chaos being the first. Though known by many names throughout the history of mythologies, Mother Earth is a universal symbol of growth, nurturing and healing. Everything we need to sustain life, creativity and joy are given freely to us by our beautiful Mother Earth. Food, shelter, water and medicinal plants support our daily needs and the beauty and splendors on this planet provide more than enough to spark wonder and joy in every moment.
This Spirit Vessel is offered as a way to express your thanks for Gaia’s endless love and nurturing for our bodies and souls. Fill it with her small, enchanting gifts… shells, feathers, acorns… or use it to hold those personal keepsakes that speak to your inner spirit.
