I’ve always been interested in wearing waist beads, and anytime I really want to do something creative, a meaning must be attached to it. I’ve taken noticed to ladies in my culture wearing and making waist beads for the past couple of years. I was somewhat drawn to the beauty of waist beads being worn as an adornment for the waist, but scared to adopt that cultural awareness and fashion sense because of my own internal issues of not letting go of the past.
I’m no society driven model, so my waist is not exactly bikini ready, however I’ve been yearning to privately embellish my waist for a great self-esteem booster and natural control of my waist. Ever since I had my boys (16 & 13), I always felt like showing my waist/abs/belly is just an absolute no-no, even in front of my partner.
Through the past few years of considering myself not attractive some days because of my waist, my boyfriend has really made me comfortable enough to embrace my belly, no matter the size. With more research I found out that African traditions for girls and women is to wear waist beads to invoke divinity, femininity, self-LOVE, waist control, and seducing their LOVER (when you’re grown, of course)! All of that, is what piqued my interest even more to wearing waist beads.
Recently on my journey, I’ve been gravitating to being more health conscious, especially as a spiritual healer. Eating foods that aren’t conducive to my body and also contributing to the size of my waist has been a major factor for the past couple of years, and really the past month. My journey has newly opened my eyes to begin to take control of my health with healthy eating, maintaining my yoga practice, meditation, spiritual reading, and of course, more jewelry making! Take a look at the waist beads I’ve created for myself below!
Like I said in the beginning, a meaning must be attached to things I create, so here’s a brief description of why I created these beautiful waist beads for myself.
The rose quartz waist beads were made to clear fear, anger, and guilt, and start enhancing my heart chakra, self-confidence, creativity, compassion, forgiveness, self-LOVE, divine LOVE, and overall, radiate LOVE! LOVE energy being a constant reminder of the energy I exude and want to attract is always my initial intention when dealing with myself and people I allow in my circle.
My newest waist beads, which I just made and reiki-infused today, are made of citrine and carnelian beads, and gold hematite hearts. I wanted to create something that ushered in the energy of new beginnings for the Spring Equinox, and also a self-healing agent for my solar plexus, digestion, self-esteem, grounding, will power, detoxification, abundance, alignment for my higher self, prosperity, and protection.
My intention is to make new waist beads every time I lose 10lbs, until I reach my goal weight! From experience, I’m SHOUTING that this is working for me! As soon as I put on my first set, the femininity and bold goddess I claimed to be came out proudly! I’m on my second set of waist beads, and I feel so proud of my accomplishments, my energy is feeling totally awesome, and I’m embracing that I am all that and a bag of sweet potato chips, no matter what size I am! Wearing waist beads has made feel like I’m bringing sexy back in every kind of way!
This is my step to letting go of the past, and embracing the new!
Many Blessings and Miracles during this Spring!
