Red string bracelet


Throughout history and across philosophies, the red string has been worn for protection, faith, good luck, strength and protection. Today many people wear a red string bracelet as a reminder that they are not alone. The origins of the red string can be found in Hinduism, Buddhism Christianity, Kabbalah and Ancient Chinese lore. It is also interesting as red is the colour for the base chakra - which is about safety, security and belonging.

We have created these simple red string bracelets with the intention to offer protection, luck and strength and to act as a reminder to connect with your higher self. Each bracelet has 7 knots (sacred number) and each bracelet is made up of 7 strings. With the tying of each knot the mantra "Om Mani Padme Hum" was recited. "Om Mani Padme hum" is an ancient Buddhist mantra. In English, this rhythmic chant literally translates to “Praise to the Jewel in the Lotus.” As the Dalai Lama said, its meaning is “great and vast” because all the teachings of Buddha are wrapped up in this one phrase.  

There is great power that comes with intention. When wearing this red string bracelet think of your intention. What does it mean to you? When you look at the bracelet it will then act as a powerful reminder of your intention. Many believe it should be worn on the left wrist (receiving side) however I have read that women wear it on the left and men should wear it on the right side. I am actually wearing a red string on my left wrist and another on my right wrist to ensure I am balanced in my receiving but also in my giving. It is believed that once tied to the wrist the red string should not be cut but rather allowed to fall off when it is time, when its job is done.
