The Ankh Cross – life-giving arms. One of the most powerful symbols of life, its strength and the ability to bestow it. Good energy emanating from inside it guarantees strength, fortitude and health. Due to its shape, which might bring to mind the female womb, the Ankh symbol is by many considered a talisman of fertility and the ability to give life. Placed at the noses of dead pharaohs, it symbolized the breath of life which was to be offered to them by gods in the afterlife. In a word, the Ankh means life and all its strength, the eternal life that never goes away. It can only move from this world to the other, but never leave completely.
The Eye of Horus – guardian of health and safety. The eye that was lost and restored. Lost by the god Horus during his victorious battle for Egypt fought against Set, it was then viciously dealt with by the defeated opponent, who shattered it into pieces. Although critically injured, it was miraculously healed, regaining its shape and sight. Thus, the eye of Horus became a symbol of healing, becoming whole again. It is also a strong talisman warding off danger and all evil.
The Eye of Horus symbol was also used by Egyptian physicians to represent fractions of ingredients needed in the preparation of healing potions, which strengthens its importance as an amulet protecting health and strength, since those are two of the things guaranteeing a sense of safety.
Lapis – a stone of intuition and strengthening bonds, said to guard dreams. The starry sky of wisdom that spreads over its owner. You can find more about lapis properties here.
