New prayer beads made under the waning moon as we approach the autumn equinox. I really like these new ‘Bear’ prayer beads. Autumn equinox is a time of balance and stillness before we make the descent into the dark of the year. It is an invitation for us to stop and evaluate how we really are. What things do we need to let go of and what things do we wish to take into the dark with us?
With working with the most ancient grandmothers and bear the first animal humans ever honored we enter into her great dreaming cycle with her, we call her cave home and can return there throughout the winter months when the franticness of the human world with its consumerism and endless distraction becomes too much. When we’re able to sink down to our roots we can weave the wisdom of bear into our lives.
