A few weeks ago, while visiting family, my Mom gave me a set of stone gaucamole bowls. There is a large bowl, two small bowls, and a pestle. I might eat guacamole once or twice a year, but I took them because they could also be decorative.
For a few months, I have been looking for an alternative to an abalone shell for smudging. It just didn’t feel right to me. I’d actually been waiting to come across a river stone that had an curved eroded area on it. I went looking around a couple of the spiritual/pagan shops today and suddenly realized what I had. The small granite guacamole bowls are perfect for smudging! They fit in my hand and are not too heavy. It worked really well too.
I don’t think this is just a random coincidence. As I am gaining knowledge of the Shamanic and spiritually related kind, needed materials seem to be finding their way to me.
