A Human Connection to Beads
It’s possible that the benefits of the beads extend beyond the properties of the gemstones. That’s because we have evolved and progressed as a human race with beads as a part of our lives. Using beads for various purposes has historical significance for us as humans.
We’ve been using different forms of beads for thousands of years, just as we’ve been creating art and telling stories throughout our history. This means that beads are a part of human existence. They mean something to us as a collective, even if we don’t entirely understand the significance.
Here’s what we know about the history of beads:
-Their earliest use for ornamentation purposes that we’re aware of can be traced to 100,000 years ago.
-Their earliest recorded religious use comes from a statue dated to the 1600s BC.
The historical use of beads can be broken down into different purposes, including using beads for trade, for ornamentation, for religious purposes and as worry beads. Humans still use beads for many of these purposes today, so beads continue to have a connection to our lives.
If it helps you during an attack, you could feel free to use your anxiety bracelet as you would use prayer beads or worry beads. You will have easy access to the beads on your wrist to use in this way and relax yourself.
Nonetheless, anxiety bracelets could be seen as an extension of this long-standing human connection to beads. This modern version simply puts the focus on anxiety, which is something that is common to our current day and age. Rather than counting the beads for prayer, trade or meditation, we now focus on the gemstones, essential oils and anchoring technique the bracelet can provide as ways to combat anxiety.
