Why 16 beads?
A strand of gratitude beads is made up of 16 beads. In ancient buildings and in holy locations you often find the ratio 10:16. This ratio stems from holy geometry and evokes beauty in our sense of perception.
It brings us in contact with the source of wisdom and gives us a healing energy. In many holy places you will find the same energy, for example in the cathedral of Chartres and the pyramids of Gizeh. The same healing energy is created if you place 16 approximately equal shapes next to each other, such as in the gratitude bead strands.
This energy helps you stay balanced. Also the word ‘gratefulness’ adds to this energy.
