Long before fancy new-age tools became readily available through specialty shops, our magic-using ancestors turned to nature for their power objects. Natural objects are imbued with spiritual energies that we can harness for our own use in spells and charms. Seashells in particular have a long history of magical uses, as they were associated with the powers of various sea gods and goddesses of different cultures.
Seashells have the natural ability to disperse negative energy. Due to their home being the Ocean which is concentrated in sea salt, they are associated with the element of water and with the moon, which drives ocean tides. Both the element of water and the moon have strong feminine energies that are receptive in nature, so shells are primarily used in magic to draw things you desire into your life. The shells have a protective base in which negativity finds hard to penetrate.
Shells taken from the ocean need little ritual preparation for magical uses; however, if your shells were bought from a store or have been stashed in a box for a while, they may benefit from cleansing and recharging. To do this, place your shells in a bowl of water mixed with sea salt. Set them aside to soak for a day or overnight. Recharge them by setting the bowl in the sun or under the light of the full moon for several hours.
Shells can harness and enhance Reiki healing with their size, shape and structure. Seashells have gentle but thorough healing energy which works with the healer to cleanse, balance and harmonize chakras and the aura.
