Psyche’s Abode is a small online boutique that specializes in symbolic fashion accessories. Although at this point, our stock consists of pendants, lockets, necklaces, and earrings – some handmade, others manufactured.
Our name comes from the Greek word for soul or spirit (psyche) and where it resides (abode), which is within each and every one of Us. We are all the home of a soul. And the symbols we select are meant to help yours develop in whatever way you wish.
Why symbolic accessories?
I have benefited in my own life from the use of symbolism. Not just jewelry, but scarves, pins, and other wearable items. I wasn’t always aware of how these items were helping me in my daily life, but I learned.
I learned that while the language of the conscious mind (ego) is literal the language of the subconscious mind (soul) is symbolic. According to Sigmund Freud, the unconscious mind is a reservoir of feelings, thoughts, urges, and memories that are outside of our conscious awareness. And yet, it is the unconscious mind that drives our actions, holds us back, and determines whether or not we succeed in achieving the goals set by our conscious mind.
Learning all of this was pivotal to my personal growth and manifestation efforts. I won’t go into detail about the individual symbols I’ve used in this post, but I will say that if you are on a path to a more optimistic and accomplished life nothing is more important than focusing on what you want and training yourself to avoid dwelling on fears and negativity. And symbols are an excellent way to refocus our attention and energies.

In my next post, I will go into greater detail about why I believe some symbols are more effective than others, depending on your goals.
