Rudraksha is considered a Sacred Seed. Rudra is the Vedic name for Shiva in his capacity as the forces of nature; aksha means 'tears', so the name means 'Shiva's tears'.
The sacred Rudraksha tree is a large evergreen broad-leaved tree which grows in the area from the Gangetic Plain to the foothills of great Himalaya and middle area of Nepal.
Rudraksha seeds are very effective when used as concentration and meditative aids. The five mukhi rudraksha (meaning it has five segments) is known for bringing qualities of health, wealth, and happiness.
In research studies, Rudraksha have been found to have powerful electromagnetic, paramagnetic, and inductive properties varying with the different numbers of mukhis. One group showed that each mukhi in the Rudraksha emits different specific electrical impulses, stimulating certain chemical responses in the brain and causing desirable changes in the personality and perceptions of the wearer. Rudraksha were demonstrated to to control heartbeat, stress levels, blood pressure and depression. The effect of Rudraksha on the neurotransmitters dopamine and serotonin was also shown by this group, with effects close to the benefits of long-term tranquilizer use, with no ill side effects. While even panic attacks can be staved off by proper handling of a specific Rudraksha, many non-medical and personal-life benefits are upheld for owners of these natural treasures, or Tears ("Aksha") of Shiva ("Rudra").
Bone is one of my favorite materials to work with and wear. It is very grounding, yet also very energizing, elevating and soothing. There is just something about having bone around the wrist that is very nice. The energy of bone helps us to elevate to the higher realms while connecting us deeply with the earth.
