Bear Spirit Mala With Red Fossil Coral, Milky Agate, Magnesite, Rocky Crystal, Cloudy Quartz, Fancy Jasper and Haematite.
Wow, what a mala. I was super excited when I got asked by another fellow mala maker in sunny Honolulu to make a bespoke mala for her own personal use.
I also think it was super beautiful that she chose the Bear Spirit Animal to be within her piece, as this is the spirit animal for her husband, rather than choosing her own spirit animal. This really touched my heart and shows a treasured union between the two of them.
Bear Spirit Animal
The bear is emblematic of grounding forces and strength. This animal has been worshipped throughout time as a powerful totem, inspiring those who need it the courage to stand up against adversity. As a spirit animal in touch with the earth and the cycles of nature, it is a powerful guide to support physical and emotional healing.
The bear has several meanings that will inspire those who have this animal as totem:
- The primary meaning of the bear spirit animal is strength and confidence
- Standing against adversity; taking action and leadership
- The spirit of the bear indicates it’s time for healing or using healing abilities to help self or others
- The bear medicine emphasizes the importance of solitude, quiet time, rest
- The spirit of the bear provides strong grounding forces
This totem piece is said to be made of mammoth bone, having frozen in icebergs and over time the Inuits would come and retrieve these bones, carving them into Spirit Animals and other objects. I had only a few individual one-off pieces, wishing I had got more. The spirit animal sits beneath the most serene face of a beautiful woman and really is something to look at. A piece to treasure for sure, a keepsake to pass down through the family.
I took some time to channel into what crystals would do this piece justice and as you can see a few jumped into the queue to work with it.
Whilst hand knotting away which is always a very meditative practice I blessed this mala with the Moon mantra, Om Shraam Shreem Shraum Sah Chandramase Namah.
Moon depicts the natures of being Calm, Cool and Attractive. Those who possesses the blessings by Lord Moon, tends to be much more peaceful than others. They tend to stay calm in tough situations, stay cool by staying away from anger and tend to be more attractive than others. Lord Moon signifies the importance of cyclical transitions from total life to death, failure to success and light to darkness. All are parts of our life but do not change who we are as a person deep inside. If you tend to stay stressed, angry or feel less attractive, Lord Moon can bless you with all his characters. The mantra starts working right away since it holds the deep connection with Lord Moon. You will feel transformation just after 1 session. OM
Let’s talk a little about the crystals used.
Red Fossil Coral
Fossil Coral is said to be a gift from the stars that are used to enhance telepathic communication with other realms and dimensions. The Quartz qualities in fossils make them perfect tools for working on past life memories. Quartz is known as a recorder of time and events.
Coral Fossil is also helpful for promoting inner peace and quieting disruptive thoughts. It can be used for opening the gateway for communications with dead relatives and for receiving insights into some of the infinite Universal knowledge.
Fossil coral is said to assist in business endeavours, whilst keeping you grounded and motivated; it is also said to be an excellent protection stone for travel on or near water.
In physical healing, fossil stone is used to assist with aliments of the bones, skeletal system, hands and feet.
Agate is grounding and brings about emotional and physical balance creating a stabilising physical energy. It harmonises yin and yang, soothes yet brings about great strength, sometimes bringing hidden information to light.
It facilitates acceptance of the self, builds confidence and perception, bringing out your inner truth. Negativity of the heart and inner anger can be overcome, replacing it with safety and dissolving internal tension.
There is much more to say about agate, this is just some of the qualifites.
This beautiful crystal instils deep peace during meditation and when placed on the third eye enhances visualisation and imagery, also helping to open up the crown chakra.
Rock Crystal Electro Plated
same as quartz
Like humans, each quartz crystal is unique, with its own personality and lessons, which is why it is important to work with your crystals to get to know them and vice versa. It will help with personal growth and awareness, awaken the mind and are like beacons of light and positive energy connecting the physical dimension to the spiritual.
It enhances communication with plants, animals, minerals, and in speaking with and receiving information from the Divine and other-worldly masters, teachers and healers. Its natural tendency is for harmony and brings a sense of purpose to those who resonate with it.
Helps to absorb negative energy, calms stress and worry, providing protection and grounding.
Fancy Jasper is a wonderful stone for bringing wholeness and healing to an environment or situation. It is said to intensify and lighten feelings of well-being, helping you to lighten up and enjoy yourself more. It can also relieve fear, guilt and frustration, building inner strength and confidence.
The crystals to me give the energy of spirit, of calmness, peace, inner intuition, a beautiful grace and serenity partnering up with the strength and courage of the bear. This shows a naturally beautiful union between husband and wife.
