Collection: Waist Beads

A waistbead is a traditional African accessory and adornment that consist of small glass beads on a string or wire worn around the waist or hips. They come in different colors and shapes and may also include decorative stones, crystals, or charms. They can act as a waist trainer. This means that your waist can grow no larger than it is when you put them on. So once you gain weight, they will let you know- immediately. Because of this we are more in tuned with our bodies, as they are made to be "permanent." It is an internal way to change your mindset, which lends itself to weight loss. In history, these beads were used for intimate occasions and increase sensuality. Waist beads signified fertility or, in a similar fashion, were used to increase fertility by being worn by women when they are trying to conceive. It is amazing that you understand the importance of power, energy, and attention these beads carry.Β  When you create intentional journey and passages, externally and internally - the body, mind and spirit comes into energetic compliance with the guidelines of those journeys you've set to achieve. Sometimes just telling ourselves,Β  that "we got this," may not be enough, we may need a little more help and guidance keeping our energies matched with our physical being.
