Ammonites and Baculites are an ancient sea creature with a straight shell instead of a spiraled shell. These creatures are found in Late Cretaceous Period marine rock, which dates back to around 66 to 100 million years ago. They are related to the mystical sea creatures of the Squid and Octopus. Baculite fossil shells have a well preserved outer layer of Nacre that has an amazing iridescent rainbow sheen.
Because of their literal connection to the past, fossils support longevity, memory, and past-life recall. They are also used to contact spirit guides, honor ancestors, or connect to ancient sources of knowledge. Baculites only lived in the last chamber of their shell. The air-filled rooms of its past allowed it to float freely, but it only lived in its present hollow. We can use Baculite to regain perspective on the present, to integrate information about the past or potential future, or reorient after altered states of consciousness, such as shamanic journeying.
Because they come from the ocean, shells are connected to the Moon, water, and feminine qualities of intuition, emotions, the unconscious, fertility, pregnancy, and birth. Because Baculites are fossilized shells, they help transform the emotional past and release dysfunctional family patterns, childhood trauma, and suppressed feelings. Lunar materials are associated with sleep, dreams, and techniques such as lucid dreaming.
Baculite is used for the spiritual protection the home, due to its shell symbolism. Since the animal moved from chamber to chamber as it grew, walling off the old ones, they support individuals selling a home, in the process of moving, or adjusting to a new location.
Baculite fossils have long been used to align the Chakras. Physically, Ammonites were used historically for fertility, pregnancy, and birth. Fossils, in general, are related to Saturn and are recommend for bones, joints, teeth, skin, and hair. Because they come from the ocean, Baculites are also linked to the Moon, which rules the breasts, stomach, digestive system, and womb.
Fossils are associated with the Root Chakra. They support parts of the body below the heart and the top of the head.
