Each one-of-a-kind strand of Personal Empowerment Pocket Beads (PEP Beads) is created with 9 beads and a charm or pendant on the end that often represents a theme (i.e., love, peace, balance, harmony, patience, courage, etc.).

Why Nine Beads?

Nine beads are used because the number 9 represents intellectual power, inventiveness and influence over situations. It is the very height of vibrational frequencies representing attainment, satisfaction, accomplishment and success.

• In many cultures the number 9 is considered a lucky number, including a symbol of magic and power.
• In numerology the qualities associated with the number 9 are those of leadership, clarity, vision, integrity, unity, truth, light and perfection.
• In the Bible there are 9 fruits of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, trustfulness, gentleness and self-control.
• The spiritual meaning of the number 9 represents intellectual power, inventiveness and influence over situations.
• The number 9 guides us to recognize our own internal attributes, and extend these abilities out into the world to make a positive, influential difference.

The Energy of the Beads

Each hand-knotted strand is individually blessed by infusing it with the Reiki energy of love and self-empowerment as well as a blessing that is in alignment with the characteristics of the beads. A description of the positive characteristics of the color and material used to create the PEP beads is included with each strand. You can also read the description of each strand by clicking on the photo of a strand at the Empowerment Bead Shop.


Using the Beads

PEP beads are meant to be carried in your pocket or purse, hung from a key chain, placed on your personal altar or in a special area in your home or office where you wish to enhance the positive flow of energy. Finger them whenever you are seeking inner peace, searching for answers or are feeling confused, out-of-balance or in need of clarity. Use them to focus on the attributes you wish to attract to yourself while you recite a favorite mantra or affirmation nine times.

The Perfect Gift

PEP Beads are the perfect gift for yourself, your friends and your loved ones.  Attached to each strand is a little "booklet" that gives information about the beads. Each strand comes packaged ready for gift-giving. Inside each re-closeable package is a card that gives the history of PEP beads, a description of the characteristics of the color and materials used to create the beads and suggestions on how to use them.
