  • How can I utilize waist beads for weight management?

When wearing waist beads for weight management they then take on the role of becoming your honest best friend. Waist beads have both an immediate effect as well as a long term. Waist beads are mindful tools therefore keeping you engaged with body attunement. For instance, while we may be engaged in conversation with our loved one as we enjoy our favorite meal, we may tend to overeat because we are so much engaged in whatever else may be going on rather than hearing signs from our body that we are "full" or have eaten to the capacity of our stomach. Therefore, rather at the table or four months down the line if you've gained inches in you abdomen or back your waist beads will become a bit snugger and roll up. Equally so, as you lose inches in time you will see that your waist beads are looser and drop down on your abdomen.

Waists beads could also symbolize the start or end of a personal journey/growth in your life.

  • What is color energy?

Just as we human beings bring our own unique energy to life the same applies for color. Each color has its own frequency and produces specific energy while having a nutritive effect.

Here are a few examples,

Beautiful blue represents knowledge, health, and decisiveness. Blue hue is a mentally-relaxing color. Blue has a pacifying effect on the nervous system and brings great relaxation. The hue connects us to holistic thought, and gives us wisdom and clarity enhancing communication and speech. Traits of blue: Loyalty, tactfulness, affectionate, inspiring, and inventive. Our throat chakra is also governed
by the tone of blue energy.

The frequency of the color yellow brings wisdom, clarity, and self-esteem. Clarity of thought, increased awareness, stimulated interest and curiosity are all apart of Yellow's vibe. Yellow energy is related to the ability to perceive and understand. The yellow energy connects us to our mental self and happens to be the color of friendship. Traits of yellow: Optimistic, confident, and intellectual. Our Solar Plexus Chakra is governed by the yellow energy.

The ever-growing color Green packs a frequency list like no other such as growth, fertility, nature, renewal, rejuvenation, harmony, balance, the productive meadows of the Earth, healing, good health, to retain or regain a youthful appearance, goals, money, financial success, earning increases, financial or material gain, possessions, abundance, generosity, charity, matrimony, and is a symbol of the Goddess and her green earth.

  • What is crystal energy?

Every single authentic crystal is birthed from our planet Earth. Just as every person, thing, and entities all have vibrations and energies you better believe crystals do too. Each crystal is unique as the vibration it brings. Quick example, a Red Garnet serves a lower vibration (just as the Root Chakra) whereas an Amethyst brings a higher level of vibration (such as the Crown Chakra). Each vibration offers a specific healing energy that can be used for targeted purposes. Seeking protection, research Obsidian. Ready for love, try Rose Quartz. Own a business, I always suggest Citrine.

  • How many waist beads can be worn at one time?

It's your preference. Some choose to wear one waist bead for years on in, and other choose to wear 17 at one time. There is such a thing as I refer to as "switching out your belly" and all that means is that when you feel the time is divine to depart with your beads, you may do so. Some choose to add and/or remove beads at the start of a new year, a sentimental date or as they grow with child.
