No matter how much I shook the plate, the heart shape remained. Along with the back half of an arrow sticking out from the top. I thought it was strange.
The plate had been sitting on the counter for two weeks. I had intended on dipping the vanilla crescents I made at the time in the mixture of cocoa and black onyx chocolate sugar but then changed my mind. So the sugar and cocoa simply sat on the plate. Until today.
I wondered if there was a meaning to this encounter. I decided to take my curiosity online and looked up 'black onyx meaning'. I discovered the black onyx stone was a 'grounding stone'. Where one is grounded to reality and protected from negativity both from within oneself and from outside influences. A sign of things to come perhaps.
