This is your complete guide to using your new crystal necklace! In this guide, we discuss the benefits of your necklace, the way it was made, how to use it, how to clean and care for it, and how a portion of profits will help non-profit organizations that work to provide health care to children with respiratory diseases in developing countries. Let's dive in!
Mindful breathing has amazing health benefits and is widely recommended by health experts. When we breathe, sensory receptors in our respiratory system send signals to our brain. Mindful breathing involves regulating the breath in order to regulate the mind. By focusing on our breath, our breathing will become smoother, deeper, more even and slower, all the while calming the mind and body. Studies have shown that mindful breathing can reduce levels of stress and anxiety, increase positivity, relax the mind, improve concentration, improve posture, release toxins, and strengthen the immune system.
In ancient Japan, monks known as the Kumoso practiced a form of zen meditation known as suizen, which literally means “breathing zen". That form of meditation consisted of playing a special flute (known as the shakuhachi flute) which slowed the flow of breath in order to attain enlightenment. With this meditation, the monks were able to prioritize breathing control that is necessary for zen mindfulness. Today, modern day scientists have discovered what the Kumoso knew centuries ago: that mindful breathwork can provide powerful and enriching benefits to the mind and body.
Mindful breathing jewelry is inspired by these principles and made to imitate the breathing exercises associated with playing the shakuhachi. From the first moment one uses mindful breath jewelry, they begin to return to a more natural breathing rhythm which soothes the mind and regulates the nervous system. By using mindful breath jewelry and “breathing zen,” you can achieve greater levels of relaxation and improved states of mental clarity. These gorgeous necklaces can be worn whenever, wherever, allowing you to slow your breath in order to relax and refresh your body and mind on the go.
Wearable Wellness Handmade with Pride
Our patent-pending mindful breathing jewelry is handmade with love and care. Each piece is handcrafted from a beautiful piece of natural crystal, which is carefully worked to create a unique interior channel which helps regulate the flow of your breath. The crystals are then beautifully polished and attached to a stainless steel clasp. The finished piece is then paired with a gorgeous matching necklace. The result is fashionable jewelry of exceptional quality that can last a lifetime.
How to Use Your Crystal Necklace
Start by inhaling slowly and deeply through your mouth or nose to fill your body with air. Do not strain to inhale more than feels comfortable. As you inhale, focus on the feeling of the air filling your lungs.
As you are completing your inhale, start lifting the tip of the crystal necklace to your lips. As soon as your inhale is complete, start exhaling gently into the tip of the crystal. Make sure not to hold your breath; it is ideal if you breath flows smoothly back and forth without pause.
As you exhale, focus on the feeling of the air leaving your lungs and flowing through your crystal necklace. Relax your arms, face, jaws and shoulders as you exhale and feel your stress and anxiety melt away.
Continue to focus on the moment and the feeling of your breath, while putting aside any thoughts or worries.
Repeat as long as is required to bring you into a relaxed state. Once you have finished breathing with your crystal necklace, try to maintain the same slow and relaxed breathing. Over time, you will find that you are able to maintain deep breathing without the use of the crystal necklace.
Your mindful breathing necklace will be ready to help you breathe mindfully as soon as it arrives. You may choose to polish or wipe the crystal and stainless steel pendant with a soft cloth before using the necklace for the first time.
Your crystal necklace is delicate and is not intended to be submerged in water. We recommend polishing the crystal and stainless steel pendant with a soft cloth as needed. You may also rinse the crystal and air channel with warm water ensuring to thoroughly dry the crystal and stainless steel pendant afterwards.
