Onix was inspired by the physical properties of the Onyx stone which aids in the development of emotional and physical strength and stamina especially when support is needed during times of stress, confusion or grief. Onix may represent your shadow side or the emotions you might be grappling with like frustration, anger, rage, sadness, grief, impact of trauma, or disappointment. In different ways, we're told these things are too hard, too ugly, and not safe to share. The waves keep hitting and we may struggle to get our head above water. What if instead of having to thrash and fight for air alone you were handed a surfboard by loving humans? People who said "I see you" and stood right next to you with an extended hand as you rode the waves together? That's the type of world we're interested in, one where we can turn toward our Onix with compassion and support.
What is Bloom?
Bloom represents what is working or beginning to unfold. It could represent a small or big win or victories over the past. The emotional landscape of happiness, excitement, joy, peace, and growth. Bloom is also found in your resilience, in setting and honoring your boundaries, in the moments of rest and self-love. Bloom is present when your Onix feels too heavy and you allow yourself to set it down, even if just for a moment.
Onix and Bloom is not either or, it is both and.
How will you honor your OnixBloom today?
