What is a Dzi?
Dzi (pronounced Zee) is a Tibetan word used to describe a patterned, mainly oblong, round, cylindrical, or tabular shape pierced lengthwise called Heaven's Bead (tian zhu) Chinese.
The meaning of the Tibetan word "Dzi" translates to "shine, brightness, clearness, splendor." The beads originated in the Tibetan cultural sphere and can command high prices, and are difficult to buy. They are found primarily in Tibet but also in neighboring Bhutan, Ladakh, and Sikkim. Shepherds and farmers pick them up in the grasslands or while cultivating fields. Because dZi are found on the earth, Tibetans cannot conceive of them as human-made. Since knowledge of the bead is derived from oral traditions, few beads have provoked more controversy concerning their source, manufacturer method, and even precise definition. This all contributes to making them the most sought-after and collectible beads on earth.
Dzi stones are said to do several things. Some protect their wearer from negative energies or accidents, some attract wealth or wisdom, while others might bring you love and happiness.
One thing to remember concerning these curious little stones is this, a Dzi stone may repel things, but it also can store them. When negativism comes at you, your stone may block it or absorb it. They can also give very positive energies to you while absorbing a bit of your energy in the process. In other words, a bit of them goes into you, and a bit of you will go into them.
The downside If you are not the stone's original possessor, you may get slapped with some of the first owner's bad karma. The way to prevent this from happening is to "cleanse" your Dzi stone when you get it. This will release all of that stored up nastiness and will allow you to introduce yourself to your Dzi stone and form a fresh spiritual bond.
Tibetans feel Tibetan Dzi beads to be of supernatural origins. It is inconceivable to most Tibetans queried told the same set of stories concerning the origin of Dzi.
Offered first was the belief that in ancient times dZi were the ornaments of semi-gods They threw them away whenever they became blemished, even slightly; this is why hardly any of the beads are found in perfect condition.
Next The story involves a man who saw one of these 'insects' high in the mountains and threw his hat over it to capture it. When he removed the hat, the 'insect' had become petrified. In its place lay a dZi. Other stories relate that Dzi was encountered in the high mountains by someone with especially good karma who managed to catch them. But in coming into contact with the human touch, the Dzi petrified. Other tales are told of Dzi being found in slaughtered animal horns or cattle dung. Dr. R. Nebesky-Woikowitz (1952) Recounts in 'Prehistoric Beads From Tibet,' a legend from Ngari, Western Tibet.
It is believed that Dzi originated from a mountain near Rudok. In ancient times, they were said to flow down its slopes like streams. However, one day, a wicked woman cast the "evil eye" on the mountain, and the flow immediately stopped. And to this day, so the legend claims, the characteristic black and white stripes of the Dzi are still seen where the dZi once issued.
The "insect" theory of the origin of Dzi seems to be very widespread and is cited to explain various peculiarities. This, the Tibetan claim, is why sometimes many Dzi are found forming a kind of 'nest.' Some believe that even after the beads have been unearthed, some will continue to move about for a little while. In any case, the Dzi is not a human-made bead to the Tibetan but a precious jewel of supernatural origin.

HOW TO TAKE CARE OF THE DZI BEAD?
It is essential to cleanse your Dzi stone once you receive it. You need to get rid of all the stored-up energy in it and then ask it to bond with you.
The first to do is hold your stone, in your hand, under running water for a few minutes. Water is vital as a spiritual cleansing agent in many eastern philosophies. Everyone knows a park with a stream or a favorite place near a river (I suppose the kitchen sink will work too) to perform this. Remember to keep positive thoughts in your head as you are doing this.
After you dry off your stone, put the stone between your palms as if you are praying. Bring your thumb tips up until they touch the tip of your nose (this is called a "Wei"). Now, quietly and sincerely, ask the stone to be a part of your life. Ask it to help protect you, and assure it that you will respect and take good care of it.
After you have done this, let your Dzi stone sit outside in the sun for several hours. This helps to cleanse it and also adds power to it. Some claim that burying your Dzi in the earth for the night of the full moon will also help energize it.
It would be best to do this cleansing ritual at least once a month, so you don't have any negative bogies that the Dzi stone caught hanging about.Other ways to help add power to your Dzi stone are moonlight, earth, and prayer. Let your Dzi stone sits outside beneath a full moon. The moon's energy will gently help build your Dzi stone's power. You can also bury your Dzi stone in the earth overnight; this will help cleanse and add power. Praying never hurts. Praying, chanting (Om Mani Padme Om), or just sending positive energy to your Dzi stone will all help it help you.
