There are many different sacred seeds and each kind carries special meaning related to life and renewal. They all create a connection between the purity of the earth and the human body. The significance of this connection is easily forgotten and the importance misunderstood.
Introducing sacred seeds into your life will offer you a reminder to maintain that spiritual connection allowing you to build a mindset of peace, love and wisdom through life’s journey.
Sacred seeds are beneficial to health and can also be used to enhance your asana (yoga postures), pranayama (breath) and meditation practice since the significance of the seeds relates to the same reasons all mindful exercises are practiced.
Deciding which seed or seeds to wear depends on your own personal focus, intention and goals. Having different sets of seeds also gives you various options for what the day brings as we know each day is never the same as the last. That is the beauty of life.
In this short blog series, five different sacred seeds are the focus- Rudraksha, Lotus Buddha Chitta, Bodhi, and Banyan. These seeds can be introduced into your daily life in the form of bracelets, wrist malas, necklaces, earrings, mala and prayers beads. They can be worn alone or in a combination with other seeds and sacred stones and gems. Beautiful, yet not merely jewelery, they are perfect subtle reminders to oneself of the greater consciousness of life.
Explore each seed below as we take a closer look at the meaning of the name, where the meaning originated, what it symbolizes and the benefits of each.
