I have always felt that I had a deep sense of intuition. Feeling led to once again share about my prayer bracelet. I clicked on Laura's site to see if it was still active - yes - and discovered that her current entry is about Jade beads .
Interesting, made me smile that my entry was meant to be .........
This is an entry that was written and posted about 15 months ago. Daily I wear this bracelet and sometimes it is noticed and I might receive a compliments on it. It is very simple but has a lot of special significance to the one who wears it.
Arriving home from a belated birthday luncheon on Friday.... a gift to myself had arrived.
In my mailbox was a prayer bracelet that I special ordered. A mala I requested to be made in a
special way. If someone asks what it is, I will probably compare it to a beaded rosary.
This is something I am adding to my prayer life, mindfulness and the cross I have worn around my neck for over 40 years. As I am aware of it on my wrist may it help keep me focused.
Many who know me may not understand why I am adding this simple bracelet. It really does not matter whether they understand or not. It is something I am doing for myself.
It is made of Jade which is associated with abundance, healing, good health, peace and joy. It is said it can draw the earth's life force to one, especially if worn or carried while one is outdoors. It helps one to send peace and loving-kindness to all those in one's surroundings. (peace that promotes friendship, respect and peace between all faiths and people in our world). Physically, it helps to strengthen the energy system.
It has a coral center bead, which is said to bring power. Tibetan Buddhists have prized coral for mala-making for centuries.
Laura, thank you so very much.
