it was amazing

Pagan or not, many of us see the benefits of using rosaries, malas, or prayer beads to aid in mediation, contemplation, or prayer. However, Pagan Prayer Beads illustrates that the usages of these items need not be so narrow. Prayer beads can be used in formal and informal spiritual rituals and acts but they can also be used to symbolize special connections to specific deities, to the ancestors, to memorialize loved ones, or as a remembrance of a special occasion. Essentially, your creativity is your only limit when it comes to the usages of prayer beads.

In this book the emphasis is on creating prayer beads that suit your particular personality, spirituality, and needs. Throughout the text, the authors offer plenty of ideas and photographs of bead designs as well as information on animal, deity, and colour symbolism that the reader might find useful while creating his or her own prayer beads. The book also includes a variety of easy to understand step by step designs that those new to beading can follow if they aren't really ready to create their own unique prayer beads.
