The guru bead is about how the guru teaches his or her students. All of the 108 meditation beads lead back to the guru bead. The student departs from the guru to pursue his or her own meditation, but returns to the guru for the next level of practice.
Mookaite metaphysical properties:
Mookaite comes a large array of colors that look more like flavors: rich vanilla, toffee, cherry, coffee, and chocolate. Simply wear it or hold it. Great for artists or other creative types wanting to manifest bigger success in the corporate world. Also recommended as protection to the brain to avoid Alzheimer's.
Mookaite also bestows the ease and resilience to easily adapt to change, which lowers stress and engenders youthfulness. Helps the grieving cope with the drastic change of loss and to embrace death as another phase of life that is not the end of the spirit.
Directions for using your natural Mookaite guru bead:
1) Gather your materials. You'll need a mala necklace strung on cord under 1mm, a thread burner (for nylon cord only), adhesive, collapsible needle, and your guru bead set.
2) Curl the collapsable needle. Do this by pulling the needle between your thumb and finger nail. Repeat until the needle resembles a fishing hook.
3) String the cord through your needle. Then string the needle through the side hole of the guru bead and down through the bottom hole.
4) Pull the cord through the bead.
5) With the other end of your cord, repeat Step 3 by stringing it through the opposite side hole of the guru bead and down through the bottom.
6) Pull the cord through the bead so that both the tails are even.
7) String on the bottom of the guru bead and slide the 2 parts of the guru bead up to the necklace.
8) Secure the guru bead in place by knotting.
9) Now that the guru bead is strung, finish your necklace. A thread burner can seal the ends of nylon cord, and a dap of adhesive on the knot will keep it strong.
