Recovery 12 Step Beads, Hematite & Amethyst
12 Step Recovery prayer beads, perfect for the pocket, purse or bedside table. They are a great way to clear the head & get actively involved in your prayer and meditation time, and come with a pamphlet explaining how to use them.
I've used glossy black hematite beads for the loop of 12 beads, and natural amethyst beads in the front.
Hematite: strengthening, vitalizing, calming
Amethyst: peace, protection, harmony
The 12 beads in the loop correspond to the 12 Steps in the recovery program. You can use the beads to repeat the Steps, count prayers, breaths or affirmations - you can assign any meaning to the beads that is in keeping with your personal journey.
The 3 beads in the front stand for the 3 principles of recovery, the the strand begins & ends with a black Unity symbol.
The 7mm round beads are all individually linked with gunmetal art wire, and I've added an extra Celtic knot bead after the third Step so they are easy to locate by touch for those who like to emphasize the first 3 Steps regularly.
The Celtic knot symbolizes how many times each day our spiritual and physical lives cross each other in a seamless way.
Length: 18cm / 7 inches
Unity: 2cm / 0.8 inch.
These beads are well-made for regular personal use, and they would make a thoughtful gift for someone in a 12 Step recovery fellowship.
