Bracelet Cuddles Here in the west we wear spirited beaded bracelets twisted about one another like a nursing baby and its mother. Selenite for clarity clear quartz for energy rose quartz for love and peace smokey quartz to clear blocked energy hematite for grounding and amethyst for calm and intuition. These rocks of support, nurture Buddhist types like me— bundles of positivity through profound darkness— all reminders of our interconnectedness. The art of compassion and giving: ticket to our hopes and dreams, as we split open prayer books during this pandemic-induced boredom. We then wander through new age stores for bracelets and stones and to soak up the calm only Buddha can bestow on our hungry souls.
