In the face of adversity, we need to remember that our soul is unconquerable. Yet, we need protection from our own negative thoughts. We have learned to live our lives trying to satisfy other people’s demands, and ideas of the roles we are intended to take. It leads us to feel like we are not good enough. We can break that habit and protect ourselves from our own inner self.
The Scarab is an ancient Egyptian symbol of Khepera, a form of the Sun God, who transforms inert matter into action, creates life and is a powerful protector. Think of the scarab as the energy that guards your mind from your own inner demons, your inner saboteur, that voice that continues to weigh you down and prevents you from reaching your full potential.

A symbol of a shield of protection. We chose it as our symbol of Protection particularly due to the Metal it was originally made from, iron. Iron is a strong metal that withstands fire, an appropriate metaphor for standing against the fire of adversity, and negativity.
Invictus, in the face of adversity this word bolsters us. We can be hurt physically, financially, emotionally but our soul is unconquerable. “… I thank whatever gods may be for my unconquerable soul… I am a master of my fate; I am the captain of my soul.” – Invictus c. 1875 William Ernest Henley.
