A crystalline brittle metal, the angular shape of this mineral evokes a sense of construction. The surface of bismuth is iridescent, reflecting a multitude of different colors. Reflections of life and the labyrinth of living. Bismuth can help us feel more emotionally stable during times of change or confusion.
Throughout life many times we unexpectedly have to change direction. This can be scary and confusing. It can bring incredible pain and sorrow for the things we are leaving behind and the path we can no longer walk. These are the turns that build the stories of our lives. The labyrinth we walk is our own becoming.
Because it radiates beauty as well as structure bismuth can help us maintain a sense of personal stability and confidence in the face of change. It can be used to encourage and reinforce personal change to meet goals. It can help to calm feelings of isolation and loneliness by reminding us of a greater beauty than what we might feel in the moment. We are all chapters in the human story, after all.
