Recovery Prayer and Meditation Beads, 12 Step Serenity Prayer Beads
This set of prayer and meditation beads have been designed for people in 12 Step Recovery programs. I've made this set with larger 10mm round gemstone beads for those who prefer a more substantial feel in their hands.
The purpose of the beads is to help still and focus your mind during prayer and meditation & involve both mind and body in your meditation, thereby bringing you more quickly into a quiet space. They are held in the hands and used in count breaths, repeat affirmations or mantras, keep track of sets of prayers or lines of the 12 Step banner ... any method that is in keeping with your own spiritual path.
This set is made with 10mm round picture jasper beads - the 12 beads in the loop represent the 12 steps. I've placed a studded pewter cube bead after the 3rd Step bead for those who like to emphasise the importance of the first 3 steps of the Program. The loop meets at a steering wheel connector - a reminder that the user is responsible for driving their pathway in recovery.
In the front of the set is a single jasper bead, a place to center yourself before beginning and then again at the end of your session. The set begins and ends with a silver pewter medal of praying hands, with the Serenity Prayer on the back.
Length: 26cm / 10.2 inches from mid-back to end of medal;
Medal: 2.5cm / 1 inch across;
Beads: 10mm natural jasper round beads.
This set is well-made for years of use and are suitable for rugged hands. A pamphlet explaining about the beads and some suggested ways of using them, and they come attractively wrapped.
