Handmade near the Ganges River in Rishikesh, India by women who are living in poverty and marginalized. The women, who I refer to as the Sisters of Rishikesh hand knot the malas using ancient traditional techniques. When you make an investment in a mala, you give back. You support holds space for the Sisters of Rishikesh to earn a living wage. Afterwards the malas journey to a temple, where each one is blessed by a Hindu Priest activating the medicine of the beads.
Each bead is 8 mm and carefully selected to ensure all gemstones are natural. Sandalwood beads are aromatic and ethically sourced from a plantation, not harvested from the forest. Made from 108 beads, a spiritual number in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Yogic traditions. Features a stunning faceted Clear Quartz Guru Bead that shimmers. Lovingly hand knotted using all natural cotton cord, as synthetic and silk threads are not eco-friendly. Approximately 21 inches in length, including the dual coloured tassel: red + burgundy
GEMSTONES & SANDALWOOD
Specific semi-precious gemstones were chosen to support the intention: I do! However, the Solar Plexus Chakra Mala may speak to you for another purpose.
Citrine is commonly referred to as the happy stone and is known to assist with harnessing power & manifesting. Healing properties include empowering & stablizing the Solar Plexus Chakra. Also, helps with instilling and boosting confidence.
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 your aura
Sandalwood attracts positive energy and increases optimism. The beautiful scent of the wooden beads will help you maintain alertness while meditating and also manifesting your desires.
Please note that crystals and sandalwood can aide in your wellness, but do not replace the advice of a healthcare professional. Allow for slight variations and imperfections, as the semi-precious stones and sandalwood are made by nature.
WHO IS THE SOLAR PLEXUS CHAKRA MALA FOR?
Those seeking call back their power and exude confidence! And, also connect to the Element of Fire.
In Sanskrit, the Solar Plexus Chakra is known as Manipura and translates to “lustrous jewel”. Manipura is the center of self-esteem, fierceness, courage, willpower, strength, and energy. Associated with the colour yellow and the Element of Fire.
Your Solar Plexus Chakra is your powerhouse. Located below your diaphragm, it includes your digestive system: stomach, small intestines, liver, gallbladder, and pancreas. Your body heat is generated by your digestive fire located at your third Chakra. Manipura also governs your muscular system, as nutrients are absorbed from the food you eat to provide energy to your muscles. Your sense of sight is connected to Manipura, as your gut feelings provide you with insights that you know to be true without a doubt.
A well-balanced Solar Plexus Chakra is strong-willed, playful, active, energetic, confident, and radiates positivity into the world. When your Manipura is out of balance, you may have feelings of jealousy or envy, be prone to laziness, have low self-esteem, require constant reassurance, feel insecure, be weak willed, or have poor instincts.
You can bring you Solar Plexus Chakra into balance by wearing yellow clothing, using yellow crystals, and nourishing your body with fresh fruits & vegetables, especially yellow coloured ones. You can also say the seed mantra “RAM” aloud with intention on your mala to connect with your Solar Plexus Chakra.
Connect to the Root Chakra.
A reminder of your intention.
Meditation tool for mantra repetition.
Use to draw in healing energy from the gemstones.
You may hear the call to use your mala in another way.
