Quintilis Buddha Mala ~ Custom Request
I have to say I absolutely adore this mala, not because I made it, but because it transformed into something so much more than I expected.
It is a 108 mala with Rudraksha seeds separating at the two first quarters allowing for a shorter mantra and has faceted clear quartz crystals scattered around the back of it.
Quintilis Buddha Mala
July was previously known as Quintilis before it was changed to honour Julius Caesar, and on this 7th day it is also the end of the Oak Tree month according to the Celtic calendar & this is when this mala was birthed. This mala also was bathed under the full moon of the Buck’s Moon which just passed so it has some very special energy within it other than what naturally occurs with the crystals.
The mantra that manifested with this mala was the Durga Mantra (you can find this on you tube) which is a very powerful mantra against negative forces.
Let’s go through the crystals used.
The pendant piece is hand rolled in 24ct rolled gold and contains a jade hand carved Buddha emblem. This piece was made rolled in Wales by an elderly lady with the most wonderful, gentle, kind spirit who has been in the jewellery trade for decades. She is one of my very special and coveted suppliers.
The mala is hand knotted with silk.
The main crystal used around the mala is the unique Moonkaite Crystal.
Mookaite is an Australian Jasper of bold, earthy beauty with a fiery fusion of red and yellow energies. It carries an invigorating frequency of strength and vitality, and increases Life Force within the physical body. An Aboriginal Mother Earth stone, it is gaining in popularity throughout the world for its healing capacity, and for empowering one to feel and connect with the electromagnetic energy currents of the Earth. It enables one to utilize these positive energies to increase one’s will and focus one’s personal power. Mookaite promotes an ageless spirit willing to accept change and seek new experiences, and awakens one’s natural instincts in knowing the right direction to take.
Mookaite Jasper is found only in the Kennedy Ranges of Western Australia in outcroppings near Mooka Creek, the area for which it is named. The Aboriginal term “Mooka” means “running waters” and refers to the numerous springs that feed into this area.
Use Mookaite Jasper to connect with elemental Earth powers for increasing self-confidence, self-worth, and to realise one’s full potential. Press a Mookaite palm stone against the upper stomach to activate the Solar Plexus Chakra, the seat of will and personal power.
Mookaite Jasper is an ideal tool for overcoming procrastination by revealing the true reason for avoiding certain tasks and bringing the motivation needed to resolve the issue. Its constant energy keeps one focused and well-grounded while soothing the mind and quieting distracting thoughts. It is great for focusing on a specific goal or for a motivational boost in the workplace.
Mookaite emanates the energy of animal knowing, or instinct, and may be used to amplify one’s own instincts when making decisions, especially when there are conflicting factors to consider. Hold the stone close to receive a gut answer and go with it, even if circumstances suggest otherwise. Mookaite also brings assistance in “knowing” the right direction to take in physical and non-physical travel.
There is so much more to Moonkaite than this for you to look up if you so wish, but this is just a little peek of an overview.
The Healing Powers of Rudraksha
Rudraksha beads, botanically known as Elaeocarpus Ganitrus Roxb, are the seeds of the fruit from Rudraksha trees. Rudraksha trees are found mainly in Indonesia, Nepal, and India. According to the ancient Vedic scriptures, Rudraksha Beads were formed from the tears (Aksha) of Lord Shiva (Rudra). They have been used traditionally by Hindu, Buddhist, Japanese, Chinese, and Zen followers for controlling stress, overall healing, meditation, and engendering positive changes.
For thousands of years in India, yogis have worn Rudraksha Beads to experience the deep tranquillity and concentration which are vital for meditation and control of mind and body. Under the power of Rudraksha’s positive influence, vast amounts of Vedic literature were studied and memorised in ancient India by disciples of spiritual knowledge. In China, Rudraksha is used to enhance the flow of Chi life energy in the body and balance Yin & Yang. The Zen Buddhist sect in Japan uses Rudraksha beads to induce deeper states of meditation.
In recent years, the general populace in India has taken to wearing Rudraksha beads to combat the effects of stress: hypertension, depression, and high blood pressure. Without the harmful side-effects and addictive nature of tranquillizers, antidepressants, and beta blockers, men and women experience heightened energy levels, stamina, and peace of mind within a few hours of placing Rudraksha beads in direct contact of their chest region. In the long term, Rudraksha beads reverse the effects of stress, alleviate depression, eliminate anxiety and other mood disorders, improve concentration, enhance relaxation, and exhibit anti-aging properties.
The benefits of Rudraksha beads have been known in Asia for ages and are well documented in traditional and contemporary literature. Due to increasing popularity of Rudraksha malas with the general populace in India, scientific studies have been undertaken in recent years to determine just how Rudraksha Healing works. One of the best-known research papers was published by Dr Suhas Roy of the prestigious Indian Institute of Technology in Banaras, India.
Dr Roy’s research confirmed that the healing powers of Rudraksha beads flow from their electromagnetic properties. When Rudraksha beads are placed over the heart, they act to stabilise the heart beat. Similar to magnets, the beads work on the principle of Dynamic Polarity. Blood circulation and heart beat automatically induce a magnetic field around the body and particularly the heart region. Depending on the polarity and intensity of this induced magnetic field, Rudraksha beads transmit subtle electrical and inductive impulses with opposing polarity and intensity. According, a proportionate balancing force is exerted on the heart to regulate it if it starts beating above or below normal rates. This action helps to ensure ideal blood circulation in the body.
The human body is a complex bio-electronic circuit comprised of the Central Nervous System and the organs and functions it regulates. Streamlined blood flow has a powerful rejuvenating impact on this circuit and serves to prevent stress-related disorders caused by the damaging effects of excess energy on neurones and neurotransmitters. In essence, Rudraksha beads help bring about the well-known “relaxation response” which is the ultimate goal of meditation, yoga, tai chi, biofeedback, and countless other Alternative Medicine methodologies.
Faceted Clear Quartz
To sum up: Quartz is the most powerful healing stone of the mineral kingdom, able to work on any condition. Clear Quartz is known as the stone of power and amplifies any energy or intention. Clear Quartz protects against negativity, attunes to your higher self, and relieves pain.
Clear Quartz is known as the “master healer” and will amplify energy and thought, as well as the effect of other crystals. It absorbs, stores, releases and regulates energy. Clear Quartz draws off negative energy of all kinds, neutralising background radiation, including electromagnetic smog or petrochemical emanations. It balances and revitalises the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual planes. Cleanses and enhances the organs and subtle bodies and acts as a deep soul cleanser, connecting the physical dimension with the mind. Clear Quartz enhances psychic abilities.
