Products / Custom Intuitive Mala
While soul-searching, creating and getting to my core this past summer, I realized that not only is mala making an extremely satisfying zone for me to be in; but it also became meditative; therapeutic and (so I’m told:) a beautiful new outlet of product creation! Our custom intuitive mala necklaces are just that: custom and intuitive. Leave a note at checkout with just a few words or phrases of things you are calling into your life; areas you are working on or that in which you wish to attract. My team and myself will create a mala-style necklace just for you! Example: I am working on tuning into the creative part of myself. I’ve recently taken up writing, and want to express myself to others as clearly as I am able to communicate. I’ve also recently ended a romantic relationship and am healing this part of myself so I can be more open and attract a more compatible partner. OR: My brother and I are having continuing conflicting views and our family relationship is suffering. I’d really love to get motivated on a healthy physical, mental and emotional path. I’d love to attract my dream job and get out of the career rut I feel I’m in. Made with the finest crystal and gemstone beads, these are made to adorn your beautiful neck effortlessly. Wear as an everyday piece with a simple white or gray tee, to work or out on the town. Traditionally, mala beads and necklaces have buddhist, hindu and yoga roots. ‘Mala’ is actually a sanskrit word for “meditation garland.” During Japa meditation (“Japa” means to recite), you repeat a mantra 108 times, hence traditional malas have 108 prayer beads.They also typically have 1 ‘guru’ stone as well as the 109th stone which symbolizes our path to spiritual enlightenment, the divine and our gratitude. How to use: Other than the fact that these necklaces lie beautifully around your neck, they hold additional purpose! When you receive your mala, its always best to cleanse and set intentions, just as you would with a crystal. We infuse loving energy and light into every piece of handmade jewelry and soak them in the sun and moonlight before it reaches your body, however keep in mind the beads and crystals have passed through many hands to make it to you- so its always best to start fresh with your energy and blessings. You can cleanse your jewelry and crystals in a variety of ways. While with some stones its safe to use running water; depending on what your treasure is made of certain stones can be more porous and fragile than others. Each mala is unique, so its best to cleanse in one of the following ways: 1) sage: burn white sage and use the smoke to smudge each precious stone. Imagine all the energy before that has touched it floats away with the smoke. 2) Like sage, you can use a smokeless mist (for those sensitive to the sage smell and smoke) like our potion here. 3) Sun/moonlight: let your mala soak outdoors or in a window sill and absorb the day and evening energy from 2 of the most powerful forces. Full moons and new moons are excellent times to cleanse your gems. 4) Sounds: sounds and vibrations (such as tibetan singing bowls) can also cleanse energy. Sound cleansing takes a few more tools but is simple and effective (and also very soothing and meditative to the ears!) Set your Intentions: You don’t need 108 beads to have an effective mala; just like you don’t need a perfect situation to have a picturesque life! Mala style bracelets typically do not have anywhere near close to 108 beads unless you wrap them around your wrists a few times. I like to set my intentions after cleansing, but do what feels good to you. Its like having a fresh start and sense of purpose- something new to focus on and call into my life. Setting an intention with a piece of jewelry has been done for thousands of years- most typically we think of engagement, wedding and birthstone rings to symbolize these important milestones in our lives. We celebrate/give + receive pieces of jewelry for special occasions—so gifting yourself or a friend with an intuitive/custom mala can be a unique and memorable experience. No need to have a birthday or a reason- by simply being and honoring where you are at right now; at this very moment is enough. YOU are enough. YOU are perfect. YOU are whole. YOU are light. YOU are a modern goddess. Honor what you’ve been through; the lessons you’ve learned and manifest the miracles that are about to come into your life. If your intention is to let go or release pain; then have that be your intention. Create a mantra for yourself, or a simple phrase you can recite while you wear and hold your necklace. For example: “I release the past. I am light, right now.” You can be deep in meditation or sitting at your desk or on the bus- simply hold, repeat the phrase in your head our out loud at any given moment and BREATHE. Remember your purpose + intention and remind yourself of it often. You will start to notice a shift in thoughts, energy and what flows in and out of your life. Subtle shifts are not to be ignored; celebrate them! Our jewelry is made with high quality crystals and gemstones, known to attract and repel certain energies, thoughts and emotions. When intention is paired with this energy; miracles are known to occur! We hope you love your custom intuitive mala necklace. In general, we choose the stones (and therefore colors) based on your response in the customer notes section. We ask if there is a certain color you do NOT want or are attracted to, please list that also. Or, if there is a gemstone you know you are allergic to, we will make sure not to use that as well.
