While most people associate the Buffalo with the plains, at one time they roamed all over this land. Buffalo/Bison symbolizes prayer, manifestation, and abundance. Buffalo's medicine includes creativity, courage, abundance, knowledge, generosity, protection, strength, challenge, survival, and giving for the greater good. Buffalo teaches us to foster a reciprocal relationship of meaning to the Earth. Take time to honor and respect the reciprocal cycle of give and take, for Mother Earth provides everything we need to live and flourish.

Turquoise is a stone of “earth-grounding” and is valuable in preventing one from losing touch with the conscious mind during deep meditations. It provides strength and protection. Did you know that it is said that turquoise connects with its owner and will grow pale in color if the wearer becomes ill, sometimes losing all color if the wearer passes away, only to regain color when worn again by a new, healthy owner.
