Description

The crow has often been seen as a guide to the otherworld. In myths, the crow has been described as carrying souls to the otherworld while in my own experience the crow has been a guide in moving between the worlds. Several of those journeys brought me to the Morrigan who is not a character I would have willingly gone in search of. My experiences of the Morrighan have been hilarious and also terrifying. Crow remains one of my guides as I shapeshift between the worlds.

This set has howlite beads, a stone that resembles ancient bleached bones. In fact, it can help absorb calcium and strengthen teeth and bones, yet its bone-like appearance can connect us to the bones of our previous lives. While many people will tell you tales of previous lives at King Arthur's court or their life as Egyptian royalty,  howlite helps us to remembers past lives and maybe it will tell you of your previous life of fox, owl or even a great elk. Surely all our previous lives weren't human and for those lives that were human who is to say that they were lived out on planet Earth!

Howlite also offers us qualities of soothing our emotions whether that be anger or stress. It calms an overactive mind and howlite prayer beads are particularly useful in meditating with before sleep to help calm your mind if it often races with worries which keep you awake. It is a stone beneficial in recalling information - wither it's the past lives we mentioned earlier but if you're like me and have trouble remembering your dreams, howlite can help recall that wisdom that came to us when sleeping.


How to Work with the Prayer beads Set
I particularly enjoy using the beads as a morning meditation with no thought, just letting my fingers move slowly around the circle. In times when I need them, I find it comforting to hold them and simply breath into the circle, slow deep breaths which help me find my feet again and root me back into life. You can work with them through the phases of the moon and the holydays of the year. I will provide some suggestions on how to work with the beads although I am sure you will find your own way.

Symbolism of the Beads
There is an order to each set of beads - this begins with the pendant, which sets an inspiration for the connection which is followed by 3 beads called the ‘step beads’ - envisage them as preparing to enter into sacredness, such as the last three steps before entering a temple. The next beads (which is often the biggest bead in the set) is the mystery bead - which is an inspiration to consider the great mystery, call it source or creation. In the temple, you may dance, sing or kneel - all before this mystery. The circle of beads forms a circle, the wheel of life and the wheel of the year. There are 8 sections representing each of the holydays and the shifts between each holyday are represented by the threshold beads.


Measurements & Materials
The entire set is 11 inches in length.
The main howlite beads measure 6mm.
The crow pendant measure 1 1/4 inches

    I love this hag stone - it has an ancient skull-like feel to it. Rather than select beads to I asked Jude to listen to the stone to create the prayer beads. The gorgeous finished set - all white beads- was accompanied by Jude's note about the "beloved bones." I was thrilled that Jude translated the essence of what I saw in the stone to the entire set of beads. The work is, as always, beautiful and filled with reverence! Thank you, Jude!!
