Celtic Soul Prayer Beads

soul-beads
I’ve always felt the steady rhythm of beads moving through your fingers comforting. When growing up I would have a collection of ‘borrowed’ rosary beads although that faith never quite fitted. Then there was mala’s journeyed with a mantra – but then that was also a borrowed from a different faith. While I am vaguely familiar with the Celtic Paidirinean that’s also a little out of reach. So I decided to combine my love of beads with figures from my tradition to create Celtic Soul Craft Prayer Beads inspired by my tradition stretching back through generations of wise women, of women who knew the thresholds of life and death, women who carried the stream of their ancestors voices. These women are shaman, weavers, singers and part of the same circle culture that I am of. They are women versed in herbalism, stone medicine and doll making, ritual and ceremony and dancers between the worlds.

How to Use Celtic Soul Prayer Beads

These beads have eight sections corresponding to the eight holydays of the Wheel of the Year. there are five beads for each position of the wheel with a dividing bead as you cross to the next festival.
The beads begin with the pendant which sets the tone and the insight for the theme, followed by three beads which representing the three main stages of a woman’s life or the power of the triple Goddess (such as the Goddess Brighid for example – a triad made up of Brighid and her two sisters also called Brighid).

Next is the largest bead in the prayer circle the Mystery bead – which invites us to consider the mystery that exists in all things and is the source of everything – before moving around the beads in a sun-wise direction. You may follow the beads with your own mantra or use them as a comfort when holding a thought or no thought in meditation as your fingers move you through the Wheel of the Year.
Full details of options of how to work with the bead are included inviting you to find a way that is most suited to your personal needs.
