Conformity Isn’t My Thing

This isn’t a mala!
However, it was meant to be.  If you ever saw how methodical I am about making my layouts for my designs, counting them, re-counting them numerous times before, during and after just to make sure that there are in fact 108 beads you would have been surprised as I was to find out that this ‘non mala’ has, in fact, a whopping 137 beads, not including a lovely little citrine separator at the back and the Bumblee pendant/guru bead.

I am so used to making malas, that I was quite shocked.  We all have multi-faceted sides to our personality and my little shadow side sneaked out saying “who will want this, it isn’t a mala, surely it won’t have the same worth” in that I meant Spiritual worth.  The little voice kept on ringing in my head saying “but how can you pray or chant or embrace the mantra when it’s not the ‘sacred number’.
My other little voice said “keep it, it’s meant for you, that’s why this happened”  that is my love for all things crystal voice by the way, whilst my other voice said “this is meant for someone else, not you”.
All the time one other quiet gentle voice in the background kept saying “isn’t it beautiful, it holds it’s own very special purpose, it doesn’t need to be a mala to connect and pray with, set intentions, for it stands its very own unique place, doesn’t bow to conformity”
And I agree!  Though I sound like a complete nutter having these cross conversations with myself, but don’t we all have these moments?
I had only to sit with the beautiful space that these crystals held and in fact, it was the first piece to be snapped up in my Spring collection before I had even taken proper photographs, published this piece or even actually given it it’s infinity knot.

Out of curiosity, however, I did research the numerology for 137 and here is what I found…

Angel Number 137 Meaning

Number 1 in angel number 137 says it is time for you to look for what motivates you. Stop waiting for other people to make things work for you. Make that first move and start making that wheel of change spin. The people around you will act as a stepping stone to that which you have started. The power of positivity is also important. Because a positive mind and self-belief will take you far as well as give you the courage to go further in your new reality.
When you have a clear head things tend to work out better around you. Number 3 is asking you to find that stability and clarity in your life. When you are grounded, everything you put your hand on will work out smoothly. At times it will take some time for you to see the results but the outcome will leave you in awe. Quietness associated with inner peace will also make it work for you. And with inner happiness other attributes like love will also manifest.
When you embark on a journey, you don’t stop until you reach your destination. That’s the message from number 7. Keep on pushing in your set out goals.
Angel number 137 says that be assertive and persistent but don’t step on anyone’s toes. Instead, give a helping hand and if need be tag someone along in your journey. As you develop, be an influence to another person and encourage them as well.

Now let’s finally talk about the crystals and the ‘general’ properties they hold.  It’s good to remember that as we are all unique and hold our own vibrations, so does each and every crystal and they will work within the unique relationship that you and the crystal will hold together, so these are ‘just guidelines’.
