Dimensions: Total length of turquoise fetish necklace 18" (45 cms)
Origin: Authentic Native American jewellery, made by the Corine Romerez from the Navajo tribe.
We say (by Brett): The eagle is obviously the fetish with wings! The wolf is the symbol with the tail and the bear is the other one with the more rounded body. In the Native American culture there are many core shapes that represent animals and other energies. The turquoise is real turquoise and the necklace overall feels very light compared to what I would have thought. You can wear a necklace like this because you love it but often people feel an affinity with the animals: the spirituality of eagle, the depth and sweetness of bear and the instinctive power of wolf. For more details see below. I like this necklace. Sometimes fetish necklaces have loads of different animals on or lots of different pieces of crystal. But I like the simplicity of this making it a wearable piece rather than being overpowering.
Dictionary Terms Explained
- Spiritual recognition
The eagle is held sacred by many traditions, but especially so in the Native American tradition. The eagle flies high, symbolically close to spirit, and its cry is like a high-pitched screech, calling to spirit for recognition. The eagle teaches us to live our lives on earth while remaining connected to the spirit realms. It teaches us to follow our true path - that which is really meant to be happening in our life for the greater good. So in this way the eagle is connected to courage - the ability to follow what is right, and to confront our fears, as that is how we change to become better and happier people. Eagle can see far from his high-flying position, so symbolically relates to seeing the bigger picture, not getting involved in things that aren't important.
- Going within, sweetness of life
The bear hibernates and goes within. Bear energy is the energy that seeks your deepest truths. And with the finding of your truth comes the honey of life - the sweetness that comes with knowing who you truly are. Bear energy helps you to go within and touch the great void where creation and you come from. By entering silence we give ourselves the opportunity to return to the world stronger and wiser. Bear energy is also about taking the courage that to stop thinking is not to die because we are so much more than our thoughts. So take a break, go within yourself and introspect. From the true place of bear we can see that life is like a dream to us and that our deeper self is not so tied with earthly concerns.
To have with you the symbol of bear is to state your intention to travel within and connect with the places where intuition and "knowing without thinking" are the rulers. Some activities that can help support this connection are meditation, dreaming, long walks by yourself and switching off the television.
- Inner power, wild, instinctive
Wolves howl at the moon. Howling can be seen as finding our own true inner voice, a voice that is untamed by what society thinks. It is a voice that is entirely natural. Wolf is actually quite a feminine symbol. It symbolises a wild, instinctive and passionate nature that is natural. Stories are common in the past of some lone wolves almost magically outwitting hunters. Some of these wolves even became known by specific names because of their notoriety.
Wolves are not naturally aggressive although they can be if called upon. Wolf is about knowing your inner power in such a sure way that you do not need to demonstrate it. It is much like a black belt in karate not needing to go around beating people up, because they know they have a skill and strength that is hidden and ready to be used if called upon.
Wolves are both family orientated and can be individualistic also just as humans can. Wolves communicate widely within a pack. They have different facial expressions, postures, tail positions and noises that keep the pack together and in order. There is an alpha male and female in each pack but each wolf within the pack has different responsibilities. The wolf is a social animal and different female wolves will aid in the bringing up of the young. If a mother can no longer care for its pup another mother will adopt it. Also wolves will baby-sit for others pups.
To wear or have near you the symbol of wolf is to howl your deeper nature into existence. As humans we become so conditioned by what society and other people expect of us we can lose touch with our wild nature that wants to be let lose. Wolf helps us connect to this our inner power. The moon represents this deeper hidden side and the howling is the call to bring this part of us forward.
- Balanced, soothing, spiritual
Turquoise is said to be a perfect balance of male and female force and has a restful, soothing energy. Due to its balanced nature, it's a good stone to have around during the development of psychic and spiritual skills as it reminds us to be more aware of our intuition without losing track of earthly reality. As a tool, it can be beneficial for astral travellers or meditators.
Additionally, the peaceful energy can remind us to try and remain calm during emotional unrest and develop friendships rather than enemies.
