Cleansed. Blessed. Created with Love.
It is important to me you understand the intention, nature, origination, and sacred tradition of a Mala. Please read the information below to understand where my heart comes from with this creative process.
Originating thousands of years ago in India; the birthplace of Hinduism, Buddhism, and Yoga, the Sanskrit word “Mala” translates to “Meditation Garland”. These pieces were made with all of my love with intention to support you in meditation, prayer, and energetic healing.
There are 108 beads on a Mala, a sacred number I encourage you to explore, as well as 1 large bead known as the "Guru bead". To assist our meditation practice and calm our “monkey minds” find a comfortable seat, set a mantra, prayer or intention and begin at the Guru bead and move around 108 times reciting as you move through each bead. You will have made it around 108 times when you arrive back to the bead before the guru bead. To continue with your mantra practice, go back the way you came never crossing over the Guru bead. Through this ritual, you will be charging the Guru bead.
All crystals worked with with (I like the idea we “work with” crystals not “use”) are natural genuine gemstones that have their own individual healing properties. They have been cleansed under the moon, blessed with reiki, and created with all of the love.
Please know you do not have to meditate (though you should!) to wear a mala and feel the support of our Crystal allies.
