In the African culture, green represents hope, healing, generous, and prosperity. This strand also features silver a dreamy color by its own right, silver symbolizes serenity and grace, and quite obviously, glamour. With a hint of yellow, this color symbolizes happiness and clarity. It also helps to calm the nerves and so makes another great option for waist beads worn for spiritual purposes.
Set your intentions as you tie them on and be mindful everyday as they adorn your body of the goals you have for yourself through this act of tradition. For a trendy look, tie them right at your navel and for weight awareness tie them a inch or two above your navel. When you overeat or bloat you will notice your beads will get tight or rise and as you lose inches/weight you'll notice they will fall. Use these beads as your personal accountability tool along your journey.
