Curses Upon Thee
This chaplet line is made up of seven sets of three. These represent the runes Thurisaz (3) and Gebo (7). The intent with this chaplet is to remember what must be exchanged in order to break what is binding and create the reality that is wished.
Similar to the Gift of Inspiration line, this chaplet harnesses the power of Gebo. After every three grouped beads, there is a singular bead. This bead represents Gebo, which is the gift – the exchange. It holds knowledge, wisdom, and sacrifice. There is a saying, “For every gift, a curse.” No gift is free, even the ones given out of charity. Gebo is more of an exchange than a gift. To release the locks, what are you willing to do? These fetters will not fall away without work, so one must gather the inspiration and make the decision to change.
What makes the difference is the three beads that represent Thurisaz. This rune is a rune of the frost giants, curses, and primal forces. Thurisaz is often viewed as chaos, but the witch has the ability to control the chaos and wield it to whatever task is necessary to complete. The chaos is able to destroy, which provides the opportunity to take the form of a new beginning.
This chaplet can be used in a few different ways. One way is to visualize that you are destroying your own faults and flaws, causing them to crumble away. With each bead, think of the situation where destruction takes over, giving way to a new beginning for growth and prosperity. It can also be used for chanting curses. Whenever a curse is performed, use the beads to keep rhythm flowing and to keep focus on the words with each bead. Lastly, it can be used as a curse piece. After the curse has been placed upon it, give it to the person who is the target. Give it to them in kind. Magic can be dirty and underhanded, and this is exactly that.
Some of the chanting bead styles in this seven-by-three design have extra spacers in between each bead. This is to help tell the difference between the beads. It was created especially for those with bigger fingers, or with more callouses, where the closely-spaced beads may not be as easily distinguished during chanting.
In an attempt to avoid repeating ourselves, you may find information about how this chaplet is a tangible item to help with speaking work with our previous blog post here. We have created a line of chaplets named "Curses upon Thee," which reflects in its name the runes that inspired it. There are various styles available. As always, we are willing to create a custom chaplet. Sizes vary from 7 to 17 inches. The names we have given them are simple descriptors, for we feel that if the owner bestows a name on the chaplet, it carries more power and creates a stronger bond between the piece and the individual. Similar to what we covered in a previous post, a beaded prayer rope may be known by many names. This particular style may be worn on the wrist or wrapped around the hand while prayers and spells are spoken.
