This 108-bead hand knotted mala is made from ethically sourced sandalwood that is extremely aromatic, garnet, smokey quartz, and a stunning faceted clear quartz guru bead. Each bead is 8 mm, except the garnet ones are 7mm in size, which creates a beautiful contrast. The mala is approximately 22.5 inches in length, including the dual coloured tassel: red + burgundy (which is difficult to capture in a photo, but is gorgeous). The mala is made from all natural cotton thread, including the tassel as silk is not environmentally friendly. Extra care was taken to not use any synthetic thread.
Sandalwood is believed to attract positive energy and increase optimism. The beautiful scent of sandalwood will help you maintain alertness while meditating and also manifesting your desires.
Garnet stimulates the Root Chakra by activating the dormant Kundalini energy held at the base of the spin. As a healing stone, garnet draws in stability by releasing worry, anxiety and fear, which assists with making one feel safe & secure.
Smokey quartz has iron, thus is a potent grounding stone and is connected to the Root Chakra. The healing properties of smokey quartz include the ability to transmute negative energies and aide in protection.
Clear quartz assists with amplifying energy and increasing concentration. Thus is an excellent stone for meditating and accessing your Higher-SELF. Crystal quartz purifies the mind, body, and soul to strength one's aura.
This mala may speak to you for another purpose.
About the Sisters in Rishikesh: This Solar Plexus Chakra Mala is designed by me and made by women in Rishikesh, India who are marginalized and living in poverty. The women hand knot the malas with care. The malas are a source of income for the women. I hope that with your help, you and I can support OUR Sisters in Rishikesh.
What is a mala? Malas are sacred tools used in meditation to count the repetitions of a mantra or a prayer. With your eyes closed, you repeat the mantra as you pass each bead through your thumb and middle finger. You can also use affirmations, instead of mantras. Malas are the equivalent of a rosary or any type of prayer beads. You may hear the call to use your mala in another way!
Please note that crystals can aide in your wellness, but do not replace the advice of a healthcare professional.
