Septarian Nodules are said to instill patience, endurance, and toleration while supporting one in being present in life’s activities. It also assists one in being prepared for the twists and turns of life’s circumstances. Septarian Nodules help one recognize when they may be sharing too much personal information whether it be with a friend or on social media. This helps to preserve a level of privacy necessary in everyone’s life. It can also be extremely beneficial in keeping your privacy and maintaining your identity when in a committed relationship. When sharing your space and your life with someone it is easy to lose that sense of privacy but Septarian Nodule helps keep it in tact. The cracks within these stones are said to represent life’s journey and reminds us that life is about the journey and not the destination.
~*Please DO Feed the Bears*~
It is tradition to “feed” your Zuni Bear an offering of corn meal. Place a small amount under the nose of your Bear when you leave, and She will protect your home while you are away.
