“Joe, what’s with the beads?”
People sometimes ask me why I wear a string of beads. I’ve been wearing them off and on since 1979. It began as a mala (prayer or meditation necklace) my spiritual teacher at the time asked me to wear. Over the years it evolved into something more.
I wore beads when I was in the movie The Secret, and when I appeared on Donny Deutsch’s television show, The Big Idea.
I didn’t wear them on either of my Larry King Live television appearances and the studio asked me why not after the shows. They considered them part of my outfit.
I learned my lesson. I’m almost never without them today.
Why is that?
There are at least four reasons:
1. They were gifts and have sentimental value.
Legendary self-help author and today my dear friend, Debbie Ford, gave me one set years ago. A friend in Dallas made a set for me from rubies. A few sets have come from friends in India. I cherish these gifts. They are loaded with emotional meaning and love to me.
2. They are reminders of the spiritual side of life.
Because malas are usually religious tools, they are like rosaries and prayer beads. I often repeat the ho’oponopono mantra of I love you, I’m sorry, please forgive me and thank you, as I touch each bead, which is similar to what others do with their rosaries and prayers. The necklace is a spiritual reminder.
3. They are power centers.
Some beads are inherently powerful. Rubies are power gems. Rudraksha seeds (which I’ll explain in a moment) are historically potent. They are said to attract prosperity to wearers of them. I like prosperity.
4. They make me look cool.
You’ll have to decide this one, but I think it’s part of my image, or brand. Apparently so did Larry King. Some people wear fancy hats or colorful scarfs. I wear beads.
These beads are part of my secret to success. They not only add to my look, but they are gems infused with power, and help assist me in attracting what I want. They don’t replace action, but they do assist my own action.
Even if you think this is a placebo and it’s all in my mind, isn’t it your mind where *everything* actually takes place?
Please hear me out. This could transform your life. (And no, you don’t have to wear any beads to make this work for you.)
The “mala” or prayer beads I’m wearing these days is a custom made one out of real gold and special seeds called Rudrakskha, or prosperity seeds. It is called The Indrakshi combination. If you are curious, it is described at — http://www.rudraksha-ratna.com/dispProduct.php?the-indrakshi-combination–j&prodId=1961
It was put together in a precise, scientific way, by a woman named Neeta Singhal. She is a leading pioneer in the world today on Rudraksha Ratna Science Therapy. She has been practicing this since 1997.
This is not religious but is very spiritual, and is very scientific. Rudraksha beads open up the chakras in your body in an unbelievably short time — in less than 3 days.
This starts the process of physical and emotional healing. These miracle items from Neeta enhance your aura (energy field) and help you attract wealth, good relationships, and success.
The secret, however, is to string the Rudraksha beads in the correct manner. This is the exact art Neeta has mastered and wants to share with you.
I’m not the only one to feel this way. Here’s an email I received (used here with his kind permission):
I just saw your recent testimonial on Ms. Neeta's site: >> www.rudraksha-ratna.com <http://www.rudraksha-ratna.com>.
