How to Tie a Red String Bracelet

In Kabbalist beliefs, a red string must be knotted seven times to provide protection.

You can do this if you're making a DIY red bracelet.

To tie a Kabbalah bracelet:

  1. Wrap the string around your wrist once.
  2. Fasten it by tying a simple knot.
  3. Make six more knots, creating a total of seven.

However, some modern red protection bracelets are made with sliding knots so that they can be adjusted to any size.

If you're using a pre-made red string bracelet, just put it on your wrist.

There is no need to tie any knots.

Wearing it on your left wrist would be enough to activate its protective powers.


Can I Remove My Red String Bracelet?

Yes, you can remove your red string bracelet.

However, keep in mind that your red string protects you from negative energies.

Taking off your red string will also remove its protection around you.

If you feel like you need the extra protection, put it back on as soon as possible.

Wear the Red String on the Right Wrist

A red string bracelet can be your trusted companion if you need protection.

But, to get the most out of its powers, you need to wear the red string on the right wrist. And by right wrist, we mean the proper side of your body: Your left hand.

Then, make sure to bless it and recite an intention before putting the string on.

When you do, you will feel the energy of the bracelet surround and protect you.
