Recovery Meditation Beads, Ankh & Gemstones
12 Step Recovery beads are a great way to clear the head and get actively involved in your prayer and meditation time. Held in the hands and used to repeat affirmations, count breaths, recite the Steps ... whatever use is in line with your own spiritual practice, they help to quiet mental "chatter".
I've used natural gemstone beads for this set, each 8mm round and linked with brass art wire. There are 12 beads, each representing one of the 12 steps in the recovery program. The first 3 beads are black jade, and the other 9 are an assortment of different gemstones.
Meditation beads are used by running them through your fingers to count prayers, affirmations, mantras, breaths, repeating the 12 steps .... whatever is in line with your own spiritual journey. The activity of handling the beads helps to still mental chatter, and involves both your mind and your body in the process.
Many of my customers find that simply keeping the beads in their pocket so they can touch them helps to bring calm in challenging situations.
These beads have meditation symbols at each end - a brass ankh at one end and a feather for courage, footsteps to signify the new journey you are on, and the Unity symbol of recovery. There is an extra link after the 3rd step bead for those who like to emphasize the first 3 steps regularly - it helps to be able to find these beads by touch.
