Wolf Moon meets Blue Moon Mala

Wolf Moon meets Blue Moon Mala ~ For Sale

🐺🌒Wolf Full Moon Meets Blue Full Moon🔵🌒

~ Half Mala 📿
~ Lessons Taught = Listening Skills & Simplicity
~ Chakra relationship = All, especially throat

Wolf Moon meets Blue Moon MalaI am so happy to show you my first half mala.

Again another journey was set with this mala, one being of learning to listen, for which I am grateful, and simplicity. So if these are some of your resolutions for 2018 this might be just the mala for you.

Wolf Full Moon Meets Blue Full MoonIt combines cloudy quartz, blue agate & crazy lace agate, the latter being the guru bead which is set off with a silver sacred symbolic bead for auspiciousness & good luck used in Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism. There are a couple of other little touches like tiny blue haematite beads, tribal charm and hammered silver hook which all make it a feast for the eyes.

 

 

 

Wolf Full Moon Meets Blue Full MoonThis mala was initially designed in a full moon last year, yet was not put in to place until the Wolf Full Moon. Sometimes these creations will sit until they are ready to make their presence. However this mala is very much the merging of the Wolf Full Moon just passed with the silver grey of the cloudy quartz akin to the beautiful coat of a wolf and the Blue Full Moon with the blue agate, due to happen on January 21st, yes, we will be having two full moons this month.

 

Wolf Moon meets Blue MoonThis initially I thought would be a full mala as in 108 beads, but halfway it just stopped. I can’t describe fully how long it took for me to actually listen to the fact that this mala wanted to retain simplicity and have 54 beads, I went through numerous beads, broken needles and silk before I finally sat that and a voice said “you are not listening” and I downed tools and finally heard it’s voice and am grateful for the lesson of listening.

 

Wolf Full Moon Meets Blue Full MoonSimplicity is key with this mala, it makes a great travelling companion and stays put with the silver hook which can be adjusted to sit on any bead, meaning you can have it choker style with a length hanging down or if you put it at the bottom it is like a classic tassel mala. The hook stays in place via the weight of the guru bead and makes the perfect companion for your sun salutations during yoga.

Wolf Full Moon Meets Blue Full MoonThe question is will I be setting this mala under the Blue Full Moon rays or will you?

Retail price £80 – postage free in the UK, outside excludes P&P price.

Agate – It aids in centring and stabilising physical energy. Brazilian Agate harmonises yin and yang. It is a soothing and calming stone which works slowly but brings great strength.

Quartz – Its metaphysical purposes are vast, from helping to expand consciousness to facilitating open communication and stimulating the chakras. For those needing clarity of mind, clear quartz healing properties will eliminate energy blockages and allow energy to flow smoothly throughout the body.

This mala for me is the epitome of glamour yet with very clean cut simple lines, the textures of the crystals making up a dazzling show for the eyes.

I decided to bless this mala with the mantra Ajai Alai, which means “Being in your power and to develop a radian body”.

DSC_0363

One of the main features of this mala is the pomegranate at the back which if worn with hair up sits really nicely at the back of the neck, or you can wrap the mala twice, having the symbology bordered by tigers eye as a choker and the tassel hanging slightly lower which is really very beautiful when done this way.

Onyx ~ The healing properties of Onyx are a gem at soothing the stress of everyday life because it works to bring harmony to the work-life balance with its grounding effects that make you feel safe and anchors you to the earth.

It has a lovely flow to it, mixing blue tigers eye, sacred rosewood and hematite with an agate guru bead.

It is also known for healing, improving circulation and aids in manifesting what you desire, dream, and need to heal.

Blue Tigers Eye:  Blue Tiger Eye (also called Hawk’s Eye, Tiger’s Eye, Tigereye) is a verysoothing stone as it aids in reducing stress, increasing calm and easing anxiety.

Transition & Transformation Shamanic Mala With Lepidolite, Labradorite, Tourmaline with Thai Buddha Amulet

Transition & Transformation Shamanic Mala With Lepidolite, Labradorite, Tourmaline with Thai Buddha Amulet

What do you make for someone who not only is a crystal expert and has not hundreds but thousands of them already?

The answer is, let the crystals do their work and manifest as usual what their intention is for their future owner.

So what did manifest.  First of all the pendant piece was hand-picked by this lovely lady and it was….

Authentic blessed old used Thai Buddha amulet made from coins & medals from temples.

DSC_0329

Next the main three crystals used just jumped out at me, a natural unison with a Shamanic feel to them, infusing my thoughts with Mother Earth, elements of nature, the sky, the sea, the animals and fish that live amongst us.

Let me start with telling you a little bit about one crystal, Lepidolite.

Lepidolite – Crown Chakra

Lepidolite is extremely useful in the reduction of stress and depression. It halts obsessive thoughts, relieves despondency, and overcomes insomnia. Lepidolite contains lithium and is helpful in stabilizing mood swings. It is excellent for overcoming any kind of emotional or mental dependency, supportive qualities in releasing from additions and complaints of all kinds.  Known as a stone of transition, it releases and reorganizes old psychological and behavioural patterns, inducing change.

Next we have beautiful tourmaline, but not any old tourmaline, nuggets, which is unusual for me.  Usually I knot with round beads, and it’s not that I couldn’t get them, but for some reason it’s nuggets that wanted to be here.  I checked in with my crystal friend and there was a big thumbs up.

I pondered why nuggets, which are so irregular in shape and my only conclusion be it wrong or right is that they know this crystal loving expert will appreciate more the natural formations, the irregularity giving it its own sense of beauty in each one being individual rather than uniform.

Here is a little bit about tourmaline.

Tourmaline – Chakra Balancing

Basic talents the tourmaline possesses (regardless of its colour) includes promoting inspiration and happiness, reducing fear, and building self-confidence. It also balances yin-yang energies. Helps bridge physical with the spiritual.

Shamanic use of tourmaline regionally through the ages includes healers from Africa, India, Aboriginal tribes, and Native American.

List of Remedy Benefits by Colour

Transition & Transformation Shamanic Mala With Lepidolite, Labradorite, Tourmaline with Thai Buddha Amulet

Next we have labradorite, a very Shamanic crystal in my minds eye, one of absolute mystical beauty, changing magically as the light catches it from different angles.

Let me tell you about labradorite.

Labradorite – Third Eye & Crown Chakra

A stone of transformation, Labradorite is a useful companion through changeimparting strength and perseverance. It balances and protects the aura, raises consciousness and grounds spiritual energies. Excellent for strengthening intuition – promoting psychic abilities.

Transition & Transformation Shamanic Mala With Lepidolite, Labradorite, Tourmaline with Thai Buddha Amulet

This mala was finished off with a lovely rose quartz guru bead.

I am so excited to be able to present this piece to it’s Owner, knowing that in my heart it will work heart to give her exactly what she needs and desires.

The mantra I sang when making this lovely piece was – DURGA MANTRA : VERY POWERFUL AGAINST NEGATIVE FORCES

If any of you have a draw for your own personal mala, I have a few slots coming up.

Purification Mala With Lotus Seeds, Turquoise, Cuprite, Red Rosewood & Tibetan Amulet

Purification Mala With Lotus Seeds, Turquoise, Cuprite, Red Rosewood & Tibetan Amulet

Purification Mala With Lotus Seeds, Turquoise, Cuprite, Red Rosewood & Tibetan Amulet

Purification Mala With Lotus Seeds, Turquoise, Cuprite, Red Rosewood & Tibetan Amulet

I love this mala.  Why is that?  Apart from the fact I usually love all malas, in this particular instance, this one spent it’s time teaching me lessons, namely the lesson of patience for which I am very grateful.  It has in the past not been one of my strengths, but I am pleased to say that I am recognising a definite improvement in this area and as such behold this mala with having a great sense of wiseness or teachings to give.

Purification Mala With Lotus Seeds, Turquoise, Cuprite, Red Rosewood & Tibetan Amulet

This mala though in my home right now is destined for far greater journeys and I look forward to hearing how this very special custom piece holds it’s moments of stillness with it’s to be Owner.

Purification Mala With Lotus Seeds, Turquoise, Cuprite, Red Rosewood & Tibetan Amulet

This mala was ‘birthed’ after the Harvest Moon, yet still took it’s journey right up to the Hunter’s moon after which it seemed to blossom and just after that ever so bright and magnificent full moon we just had became complete.  I sang with the knotting of each bead the Om Benza Satto Hung (Purification) mantra which resonated well.

Purification Mala With Lotus Seeds, Turquoise, Cuprite, Red Rosewood & Tibetan Amulet

This is the first time I have worked with the lotus seed, but it definitely will not be the last, it holds such beauty, each one different with a hypnotising myriad of darker dots that flow over the cream to white coloured seeds.

A little bit about the Lotus Seed ~ Like the lotus flower which grows and beautifully blooms in muddy water, the lotus seed symbolizes spiritual growth and the ability to rise above obstacles on the path to spiritual enlightenment. Lotus seed also promotes spiritual and material prosperity.

Purification Mala With Lotus Seeds, Turquoise, Cuprite, Red Rosewood & Tibetan Amulet

I also used Red Rosewood on the back half of this mala, creating a yin/yang effect between the two spiritually renowned beads.

A little bit about Rosewood ~

  • Physical- The scent of rosewood play a huge part in the healing properties it displays, which is released and awakened more with age. Its scent is used for nervousness, headaches, and frigidity. It also helps to boost the immune system because it calms the individual. Wearing the jewelry on a skin irritation also has the ability to help heal the area.
  • Spiritual- Associated with the heart chakra, rosewood is a compassionate and healing feminine energy; that doesn’t mean that it’s only for women! It just means it helps to accent the innate qualities of compassion and love within an individual. The feminine grace is enhanced when wearing rosewood, and intuitive health is also given a boost.

I also used turquoise as the guru bead at the bottom, the Tibetan amulet having been chosen by it’s to be Owner.

Turquoise ~ The Physical Healing Powers of Turquoise. As a healing stone, Turquoise is among the crystal healing master stones.  A Buddhist belief involving this stone is that “Buddha once destroyed a monster with the aid of a magic turquoise” (Rankine 347). Melody writes of Turquoise that, “It has been esteemed by the Tibetan shamen, as holding both a spiritual and protective property. It has been used in Shamanic ceremonies and in the sacred valley of Shambhala” (LIITE 669). Also written of Turquoise is that, “In China and Tibet, turquoise has long been worn as a protective amulet, and in a jewelry format as a sign of wealth” (Lilly 107).

Cuprite ~ Cuprite’s energies will make you feel vital, secure, and supported. It will open and activate your base chakra so that your life force energy will flow freely.

It will increase your energy and support your physical wellbeing. It will also help you keep a handle on your thoughts and emotions.

Cuprite is a stone that will keep stress at bay. When things at work or at home get unmanageable, you can count on this stone’s energies to calm you down and take away your worries.

The energies of Cuprite will give you the courage to let your creativity manifest. You will desire the highest good for yourself and the people who most matter to you.

Cuprite will give you support when you’re feeling disconnected to this life. It will remind you that there are ups and downs in life, but they’re all just temporary.

You don’t have to be a spectator of your own life. You can take charge of your life and make it as meaningful as possible!

Warm blessings to you all, Justine xxx

Morganite ~ This is a powerful, high vibrational, universal stone of unconditional love.

Hindu Deity Kali Mala With Rose Quartz And Pink Tassel

Hindu Deity Kali Mala With Seashell Coloured Faceted Glass Beads, Rose Quartz, Hematite & Pink Boho Tassle

Hindu Deity Kali Mala With Seashell Coloured Faceted Glass Beads, Rose Quartz, Hematite & Pink Boho Tassle

Hindu Deity Kali Mala With Rose Quartz And Pink Tassel

 

This mala has such a gentle energy about it, though it is demure I can’t keep my eyes off it, which is why it has probably taken so long to get around to pricing it, which I am still in the throes of doing.

I was very attracted to the seashell glass which instead of knotting this time I have used tiny silver dividers threaded on to silk.

There are quarter dividers of rose quartz as is the Guru bead. It is finished off not only with a lovely pink Boho tassel but more so a Kali Amulet and litle silk threads with Hematite & Rose Quartz.

Rose quartz – unconditional love – heart chakra

Hematite – grounding – root chakra

DSC_0285

Kali brings the death of the ego as the illusory self-centered view of reality.

She reinforces the awareness that the body is a temporary condition.

Of all the forms of Devi, She is the most compassionate because She provides moksha or liberation to Her children. She is the counterpart of Shiva the Destroyer. They are the destroyers of unreality.

Krishna Mala With Tulsi Beads & Kyanite

Krishna Mala With Tulsi Beads & Kyanite

This lovely little mala forms part of the Hindu Deity Range.

You will see previously that I published a post on necklets which had a range of Hindu Deity Amulets, some of the pendant pieces I set aside to make in to malas and other things, this being the first which did call to be a mala set with the sacred Tulsi beads having two quarter separators with kyanite, hand knotted on to green silk which captures the background of Krishna nicely, highlighting his presence.

Krishna Mala With Tulsi Beads & Kyanite

Krishna Pendant Piece/Amulet

Originally these pendant/amulet pieces are given to children threaded with black cord/silk/cotton which is for good luck, warding off bad luck.  They are then kept for ‘life’ or as long as ideally told to me by a friend.

There are many modern copies of these which are photocopies with plastic over the top and there are also very beautiful but incredibly expensive antique ones, these are in the middle, being Indian silver, with glass on top of hand-painted silk Hindu Deities.

Krishna is the God of compassion, tenderness, and love in Hinduism.  He is one of the most widely revered and popular Indian divinities, worshipped as the eighth incarnation of the Hindu god Vishnu and also as the supreme God in his own right.

Tulsi Beads

Tulsi (Holy Basil)  has been revered in India for over five thousand years, as a healing balm for body, mind and spirit, and is known to bestow an amazing number of health benefits.  Recently best known as a tea from Organic India.  

Tulsi or Tulasi (Ocimum tenuiflorum) or Holy basil is a sacred plant in Hindu belief. Hindus regard it as an earthly manifestation of the goddess Tulsi, a consort of the god Vishnu. The offering of its leaves is mandatory in ritualistic worship of Vishnu and his forms like Krishna and Vithoba.

Many Hindus have tulsi plants growing in front of or near their home, often in special pots or special small masonry structures. Traditionally, Tulsi is planted in the center of the central courtyard of Hindu houses. The plant is cultivated for religious and medicinal purposes, and for its essential oil.

 

Kyanite

Kyanite is a stone of channeling, altered states, vivid dreams, dream recall, and visualizations. It gives protection during these states. It brings loyalty, honesty and tranquility, and diminishes anger and confusion. Kyanite does not retain negative energy and never needs energetic cleansing. It does align and balances all chakras, often very suddenly. Kyanite can remove energy blockages.

Green Kyanite is particularly good for balancing the heart chakra and maintaining heart balance. It is also used to reduce anger with love.

Krishna Mala With Tulsi Beads & Kyanite

Currently this piece is in the shop, but there are more Hindu Deity pieces to come.

Larimar “The Blue stone of Atlantis” Mala With Moonstone, Rose Quartz & Hemimorphite

Larimar “The Blue stone of Atlantis” Mala With Moonstone, Rose Quartz & Hemimorphite

Larimar “The Blue stone of Atlantis” Mala With Moonstone, Rose Quartz & Hemimorphite

This beautiful mala sets my heart alight when I look at it, something totally magical about the Larimar piece supported by the mystical nature of moonstone, hemimorphite and loving rose quartz.

It took me on a journey making this one, the moonstone having arrived in differing sizes and not with the same ‘look’ as my original moonstone which I considered more beautiful.  I had to send them back and acquire the ‘last’ two ‘old’ style strands that existed with this major supplier but it gave me the ‘look’ and ‘quality’ of the moonstone that I required.

It was then on to find the right faceted size rose quartz which for a while evaded my capture.

They say the best things come to those who wait and eventually all the pieces of the puzzle came together and voila this mala was eventually ready to be born.

DSC_0142

Mantra, Gobinday, Mukunday

The mantra I have linked with this mala for now is:

“Gobinday Mukanday”, also called the Guru Gaitri mantra, is a powerful tool to clear the subconscious mind and according to Yogi Bhajan, master of Kundalini yoga, clear deep-seated blocks.  He also said this mantra could balance the hemispheres of the brain and bring patience and compassion to the listener.

The words are easy enough to pick up and refer to different aspects of the Divine.

“Gobinday, Mukunday, Udaray, Apaaray, Hariang, Kariang, Nirnamay, Akaamay”

Sustainer, Liberator, Enlightener, Infinite, Destroyer, Creator, Nameless, Desireless

Chanting this mantra for 11 minutes will give the subconscious a shower and you’ll end up feeling cleaner and lighter.  Do this regularly, as trash continues to build up, and it may take awhile to clean out the room.

You can find a most beautiful version of this mantra sung by:  Sada Sat Kaur

Larimar “The Blue stone of Atlantis”

Larimar is a rare blue variety of pectolite found only in the Dominican Republic, in the Caribbean. Its coloration varies from white, light-blue, green-blue to deep blue. Often mistaken for translucent turquoise or fine blue jade, Larimar mirrors the beautiful waters that surround it’s island of origin.

Edgar Cayce predicted that on one of the Caribbean islands, being the remnants of Atlantis, a blue stone of Atlantean origin would be found with extraordinary healing attributes. In 1974, Larimar was found in the Dominican Republic.

The appearance of Larimar coincides with the emergence of esoteric knowledge about Atlantis. There are now thousands who recognize and use Larimar to assist and reinforce the healing process and access the lost knowledge of Atlantis.

Dolphin Stone is another popular name for Larimar, as dolphins were associated with Atlantis and Larimar was used as a tool to enhance communication with them. Whats fascinating is that Larimar often exhibits patterns with dolphins, angels, and Greek columns, as well as other easily recognized images.

Other Associated properties of Larimar:

  • Calming stress and anxiety
  • brings calm and serenity to its wearer
  • unites the head and thoughts with the heart and emotions
  • helps one to experience an open mind in the face of change
  • stone of answers and truths
  • aids communication – also with dolphins and sea creatures
  • represents and supports peace, clarity, healing, and love
  • protective stone against negative energy
  • heals on all levels: emotional, physical, mental, spiritual
  • a true all around healing stone, but is especially helpful for the thymus, thyroid, and immune system
  • balances and empowers the 3rd eye, crown, throat and heart chakras
  • contains the program to channel healing energies to the Earth
  • soul mate stone-draws ones soul mate
  • relationships -releases karmic negativity between couples
  • healing for muscles, reduces pain
  • softens and enlightens ones perspective
  •  reputed to draw customers to businesses and salespeople

Metaphysical Properties
Larimar is a stone for Earth healing.  It represents peace and clarity, emitting an energy of healing and love.  It has been used to stimulate the heart, throat, third eye, and crown chakras, facilitating inner wisdom and outer manifestation.

It helps one to “see” the self from outside of the realm of personal reality, inspiring and encouraging one toward improvement in the actualization of one’s realities on the spiritual and physical planes.  It can also be used to bring serenity to an environment and provide a message of loving energy

Larimar brings the tranquillity of water/sea and air to heart and mind. Soothes and uplifts hurt, fear, depression, pain of life and changes with love. Larimar aids communication in relationships while healing negative karma between soul mates and lovers.

Larimar will help with self-expression, patience, acceptance,  simplicity, artwork and creativity, in one’s life. Larimar assists in speech and effective communication skills, energetically boosts the healing process through Thymus assistance and can assist in balancing the thyroid gland as it relates to energy balance.

Empathic to our needs, Larimar quickly aligns with our own energy field. Once energetically aligned, through its living active matrix, Larimar intuitively assists our own filtering process through selective information alignment and softening the effects of unwanted information and information overload.

This gemstone with a soft blue colour supports us in the changes to which we are constantly exposed. It is no coincidence that Larimar has appeared at a time when the world is going through important transformations.

Because of its extraordinary blue appearance (also found as blue-white and blue-green, depending on intent), this gemstone is associated with the heavens, the seas and planet earth as seen from space.

The power of these natural elements is contained within this semi-precious stone. Larimar bears the strength of the blue sky with its white clouds and the depth and clarity of the fantastically blue Caribbean.

Larimar combines our intellect and collective thoughts (elements of air energy) with our heart and emotions (elements of water energy), casting them into a harmonious whole. In addition, Larimar helps us to view events from a different, more positive perspective.

This is a really girlie mala, pretty in pink all around with some lovely gentle qualities to it and it has been snapped up by an equally gentle healing soul who fell in love it the moment she saw it.  I always love it when someone just connects with something I have made, for me that is what it is all about, seeing the joy and excitement on their face.

Pretty In Pink Mala Blessed Under The Sturgeon Full Moon

Let me tell you a little about agate….

Agate

Keywords: Protection, Strength, Harmony

Agate’s most noticeable propertiesoverall are balancing yin/yang energy, courage, protection, healing, and calming. Historically it was placed in water for cooking or drinking to dispel sickness. TheMetaphysical and Healing Properties Lore of any specific type of  agate depend to some extent on the color of the agate, but all agates have certain things in common.

Agate is a stone of strength. It was used by the Ancients on the breastplates of armor to give warriors strength and make them victorious in battle. Energetically, it is considered to give strength in both battle and physically.

Agate enhances creativity and strengthens the intellect, making it a beneficial stone for both students and artists. It is also known as a good luck stone. As a stone of harmony, one of the things agate does is balance yin/yang energy. Agate increases energy. However, because it is a grounding stone, it does not increase energy at all times, but rather enables bursts of energy as needed. In this way, agate is a conservation stone,  and enhances longevity.

Agate is a very protective stone. It is especially protective for children, and makes an excellent stone for children’s amulets,  medicine bags, jewelry, or just to carry around in a pocket. Agates are said to be especially useful for protecting children from falling. Agate is also used to protect against harmful spirits.

Emotionally, agate gives courage, emotional strength, self-confidence, and dispels fears. It can also lessen feelings of envy by grounding the emotions. In the same way, it assists with acceptance of all things. It can be very beneficial for self-examination as well as examination of the circumstances one finds oneself in. These qualities make agate superior for easing anxiety and stress.   Plume agates are especially helpful for anxiety and stress relief.  Particularly when placed on the Solar Plexus (3rd) Chakra it can help one to accept one’s emotions, thereby helping overcome those emotions that one wants to remove.

Because of the harmonizing qualities of agate, and its emotional energies of removing and releasing resentments and bitterness, it is also considered by many to be an excellent stone for helping to heal and improve relationships.

Agate can cleanse and stabilize the aura by removing and/or transforming negative energy.

As far as relationships go, agate is a stone of marital and romantic fidelity.

Agate is said to strengthen the body and the body’s connection to the earth. It also increases energy. Agate is used in crystal healing for healing of all kinds by bringing the elements of the healee into harmony. Physically, agate is said to be particularly helpful with tooth and gum issues, stomach problems, physical endurance, insomnia, detoxification. Note that healing crystal meanings are spiritual supports to healing and are not prescriptions or healthcare information.

White agate is especially considered a stone of hope.

Chakras: All  agates can remove blockages from any chakra. Agate also relates  to specific chakras according to the stone color.

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.

 

DSC_0094

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.

Rudraksha Seeds

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.

Marley Mala Born Of The Strawberry Full Moon, Moonstone & Lava Rock

Marley Mala Born Of The Strawberry Full Moon, Moonstone & Lava Rock

Marley Mala Born Of The Strawberry Full Moon, Moonstone & Lava Rock

I had a lot of fun and joy making this mala combining grounding Lava Rock, Silk, Glass & Wood with Lotus Beads encapsulating little Moonstones as well as the Guru bead being Moonstone.

Marley Mala Born Of The Strawberry Full Moon, Moonstone & Lava Rock

 

The dark bead you will see are Lava Rock, so let’s tell you a little bit about this:

Lava stone doesn’t really have the “look” of something that is healing, but for centuries it has been used to do exactly that. When thinking of lava stones, it’s important to keep in mind that it’s origin plays a key role in its energetic qualities.

Lava Stone

  • Emotional- Since lava is known for its grounding qualities, it’s wonderful for calming the emotions. In fact, the quality of fire springs from the ground, so in terms of healing gems, this lends itself to a calming- but intense- energy. Because it comes from raw energy, it’s considered to be a stone of rebirth and shedding unneeded layers of emotional attachment.
  • Spiritual- Lava stones are fantastic for stabilizing and grounding the root chakra. This is because of the strong connection to the earth and its creation within the center of Earth. In folk remedies, it was also given to soldiers to help them remain calm during battle.
  • Root Chakra

Marley Mala Born Of The Strawberry Full Moon, Moonstone & Lava Rock

Moonstone

The mysterious moonstone has been used for centuries in a variety of cultures. Being a perfect expression of the yin feminine energy and the soothing energy of the moon, the moonstone is the bringer of calm, peace and balance.

The tranquillity that the moonstone generates has a sensual, other-worldly quality to it; it is infused with an enchanting, soft glow of deep vitality and creative energy. It is not a passive state, but rather a glowing healing energy of renewal that can envelop you like warm healing waters and help let go of negative energies.

WHAT IS THE MEANING OF MOONSTONE?

The meaning of moonstone is in its energy – a very nourishing, sensual, deeply feminine energy that knows how to heal and bring you back to wholeness. It is the stone of the mother moon, deep healing waters and sacred feminine energies.

With its high energy rays of purple, gold and blue colours,  the mysterious moonstone is always enveloped in a shimmering white energy; this makes it a very protective stone.

WHAT ARE THE PROPERTIES OF MOONSTONE?

Moonstone is a master healer for women – it brings soothing, healing calm energy and helps regain back your power and inner balance.

If you wear your moonstone often, you will also start receiving insights as to how you are mistreating your personal energy and how to learn to love and heal yourself. It can bring insights into the powerful mysteries of true female power and the essence of all healing.

The milky moon, the motherly energy, the peaceful cocooning in healing silence, the bringer of soothing calm and gathering your power back – all these properties are attributed to the beautiful and mysterious moonstone.

The clearer the moonstone is and the more colourful its glow, the more healing are its energy properties.

What is a mala?

Just to briefly introduce you to malas if you are new to them.

A mala is a strand of beads, traditionally used for counting during mantra meditations. Malas can consist of 108 beads, 54 beads, 27 beads, 21 or 19 beads. Malas have been used since at least the 10th century as a meditation aid. They allow us to focus the mind on a single pointed task as we work through our meditation.  If you practice meditation and yoga, a mala can be a powerful tool in your quest for wellness and clearer understanding.

This particular mala has a quarter divider indicated by the bright wooden beads, then half, then a quarter for anyone who wishes to have the flexibility of varying the amount they chant.

Marley Mala Born Of The Strawberry Full Moon, Moonstone & Lava Rock

What is a mantra?

Mantras go hand in hand with a mala, so let me tell you briefly about those incase you are just touching base with this wonderful way of healing.

A mantra is a word, sound, or phrase repeated to aid in your concentration while meditating.

When using a mantra, it’s believed that only the positive intentions and actions will fill your mind and eliminate negativity.

A mantra can be as simple as the word ‘love,’ something you are thankful for, or a phrase such as ‘om shanti, shanti, shanti’ which represents all encompassing peace. You can also meditate on an affirmation, such as ‘I accept myself.’

Many people are fortunate enough to be gifted a mantra from a teacher or guru.

However, you can choose a mantra for yourself depending on what you are needing in life. While choosing a mantra, you should consider your inner motivations for practising meditation.

Whether you’re looking for positivity, health, happiness, self love, or if you simply want to find balance.

DSC_0165

 

Let me tell you a little about the wonderful clear quartz crystal this mala is made from.

These crystals create a powerful resonance within both the third eye chakra and the crown chakra, which is the highest chakra in the physical body.

The crown chakra connects you up to the soul star chakra, situated in the etheric body above the head.

It brings clarity to your communication and will amplify your thoughts and may assist you by stimulating clearer thinking.

It has a strong resonance, which is why it is commonly used by healers as part of crystal healing.

It has a positive effect on all chakras as it protects the aura and expands the human energy field.

Although this stone is usually thought of as one of the chakra stones for the higher chakras, it will aid all chakras.

Flower Moon Mala, Clear Quartz, Master Healer

In the metaphysical world, Clear Quartz crystals are the supreme gift of Mother Earth. Even the smallest is imbued with the properties of a master healer teacher. Ancients believed these stones to be alive, taking a breath once every hundred years or so, and many cultures thought them to be incarnations of the Divine.

You can find much more about chakras on my website, there is a Chakra Activation Workshop of over 30 days or a simple single page breakdown.

This mala was blessed with the OM sound

Sounding the tone of”OM” creates a vibrational frequency of harmony in the body. The sound of the “OM” is the sound of creation and symbolizes the infinite.It connects our inner world to the greater outer and beyond, it aligns our energy and creates a feeling of openess and expansion. Traditionally spelled O-M, it is pronounced or toned A-U-M. Allowing the sound of each syllable to vibrate within. This can be done consciously feeling the “A” sound in the heart, The “U” sound in the abdomen and the “M” sound in the head. Any way you do it –The experience is connection , unity and love.

Elephant Mala With Amazonite & Sea Glass & Matching Earrings - Heart & Throat Chakra

Chakra attribute – Heart & Throat

This mala is definitely for elephant lovers and who doesn’t love an elephant, there is something so regal yet mystical about them.

Most of my malas or jewellery designs in fact come to me as a flash of definition.  I used to spend ages looking at my pendant pieces wondering what to put with them but no matter how hard I ‘tried’ often the right combination would not come with ease.  It was only when I stopped ‘trying’ that bingo it would seem to be just easily gifted to me.  This is much with life, ‘trying too hard’ with things, rather than letting things happen naturally.  That is not to say to be apathetic about life and not passionate or proactive, just that sometimes, especially with creativity, the blocks come when we push it too much and there is much in life to be naturally gifted to us if only we would open ourselves up to it.

So this is a full mala, 108 beads with a silver Mother Bead.  This mala comes with a matching set of earrings, though malas seem to usually be sold on their own, I thought it might be a nice addition for those who wish to wear their malas on a more constant or social basis, rather than when just chanting that they then have something with ease to pair it up with.

I have divided the mala up with a few beautiful aqua sea glass beads and silver floral dividers.  It is hand knotted between each crystal healing bead, of which most are amazonite with silver coloured silk.

The mantra that came to me with this mala was a triple mantra, the words being:

Aad Guray Nameh, Jugaad Guray Nameh, Sat Guray Nameh, Siri Guroo Dayv-ay Nameh
Aad Such Jugaad Such Hai Bhee Such Nanak Hosee Bhee Such
Aad Such Jugaad Such Hai Bhai Such Nanak Hosee Bhai Such

  • Translation:

I bow to the primal Guru.I bow to the thruth that has existed throughout the ages I bow to True Wisdom. I bow to the Great Divine Wisdom

True in the beginning, true throughout the ages, true even now, Nanak, truth shall ever be.
True in the beginning, true throughout the ages, true even now, Nanak, truth shall ever be.

  • More Information:

Triple Mantra clears all types of psychic and physical obstacles in one’s daily life. It is a sure protector against car, plane and other accidents. It cuts through all opposing vibrations, thoughts, words and actions. Listening to or chanting TRIPLE MANTRA will strengthen your magnetic field and keep negativity away. There are three parts to this mantra. The first part will surround you with a powerful light of protection, the second part will remove obstacles from your spiritual path and the third part will remove all types of obstacles from your daily life.

What Is A Mantra?

Mantra is a word, sound, or phrase repeated to aid in your concentration while meditating.

When using a mantra, it’s believed that only the positive intentions and actions will fill your mind and eliminate negativity.

A mantra can be as simple as the word ‘love,’ something you are thankful for, or a phrase such as ‘om shanti, shanti, shanti’ which represents all encompassing peace. You can also meditate on an affirmation, such as ‘I accept myself.’

Many people are fortunate enough to be gifted a mantra from a teacher or guru.

However, you can choose a mantra for yourself depending on what you are needing in life. While choosing a mantra, you should consider your inner motivations for practising meditation.

Whether you’re looking for positivity, health, happiness, self love, or if you simply want to find balance.

What Is A Mala?

A Mala is a string of beads used to count mantras (Sanskrit prayers) in sets of 108 repetitions. A mantra is a word or series of words chanted aloud or silently to invoke spiritual qualities. Chanting is used as a spiritual tool in virtually every cultural and religious tradition.

A mala can be less than 108, but 108 is a full set.  You can divide a mala by four or half to reduce the amount of times you wish to repeat a mantra.   A mala is similar in a way to a Catholic Rosary.

Usually with a full sized mala there is a 109th bead, this you will find at the front with a tassle or pendant of some kind attached.  In this instance I have used a beautiful silver bead. The Guru Bead, Seva Mother or Mother Bead validates the end of one round in the prayer cycle. One prayer, chant, affirmation – one bead.

Elephants Symbolism

Many African cultures revere the African Elephant as a symbol of strength and power. It is also praised for its size, longevity, stamina, mental faculties, cooperative spirit, and loyalty.

The magic of an elephant – Dreams, manifestation and astral projection

Totems of an elephant – Patience, strength and wisdom

Symbols of the elephant – Grass, tress, leaves and water

Elephant, the ever gentle and wise Spirit animal, exemplifies focused Power and strength. When Elephant begins making an appearance in your life it represents a new, improved relationship with the Sacred Feminine in all Her aspects. Shamans and Light workers tell us that Elephant guides us toward a deeper understanding of the Maiden, Mother and Crone and helps us reconnect with our own positive feminine attributes.

Like the Goddess, Elephant has an intense focus on family, including past and future generations. Indeed Elephant’s mantra could well be, “family first.” Elephant challenges you to protect the young and weak of your tribe, while also recognizing the amazing extended family unit and how Powerful love and loyalty become when shared. Note, however, that Elephant intuitively knows that not all “family” is bound by blood.

Sometimes people come into our lives that hold that sacrosanct role energetically. Be on the lookout for a new relationship that often lasts for life and sometimes many incarnations.

Elephant loves seekers and students, and often comes at a time when you’re focused on those types of goals in your life, mundanely or metaphysically.

Elephant Mala With Amazonite & Sea Glass & Matching Earrings - Heart & Throat Chakra

Healing Benefits Of Amazonite

Amazonite has healing powers to help with physical ailments, emotional issues, and in Energy Healing and chakra balancing. Amazonite crystal therapies are primarily associated with filtering out stresses, healing traumas, and soothing energies in the home and workplace.

It also assists communicating one’s true thoughts and feelings without over-emotionalism. It also enables one to see a problem from another’s point of view in order to affect peace, or to see both sides of an issue objectively to resolve one’s own inner conflicts. Sleeping with an Amazonite can bring these components into focus through the symbolism of dreams. 

As a support stone, Amazonite aids in overcoming loneliness, and has been credited with making married life happier.

Like waters deep and ancient, Amazonite beckons in captivating shades of turquoise-green, promising to soothe the spirit and calm the soul. Its energy is as powerful as the river for which it is named, and as bold as the legendary women warriors with whom it is connected, yet it tempers aggression, tames the irrational, and stills the disquiet. It provides harmony and balance.

As a metaphysical healer, Amazonite soothes the chakras and aligns the physical body to the etheric. It is particularly rejuvenating to the Heart and Throat Chakras, enhancing loving communication on all levels. It balances one’s masculine/feminine energies as well as many aspects of the personality. It awakens compassion for others by allowing one to perceive both sides of a problem and accepting differing points of view.

As a powerful talisman of healing and prosperity, Amazonite has been used in jewelry and cut into beads since the time of the early Mesopotamian cultures.

Sacral Chakra Mala Born Of The Pink Full Moon With Agate & Mica with FREE earrings

Sacral Chakra Mala Born Of The Pink Full Moon With Agate & Mica with FREE earrings

Sacral Chakra Mala Born Of The Pink Full Moon With Agate & Mica with FREE earrings

Sacral Chakra Mala Born Of The Pink Full Moon With Agate & Mica with FREE earrings

This Sacral Chakra was inspired by my Chakra Activation Workshop Series, this week of which we covered the Sacral Chakra and was born of the latest Full Moon, which was the Pink Full Moon.

The colour vibration of the subtle oranges which are agate resonates with the sacral chakra and is threaded with a golden coloured silk, all hand knotted, finished off with a stunning large golden mica bead and tassle strewn with charming deep purple coloured seed beads.

I decided to celebrate the Pink Full Moon and throw in a pair of FREE earrings.  Very often one buys a mala and finds that it is hard also to pair it up with earrings one might have at home, as they are often sold ‘just as a mala on it’s own’ so I thought I would give it a helping hand an include a pair.  Which is something I might well do for some of the future malas that I make according to the feedback that I get from my lovely customers.

Sacral Chakra Mala Born Of The Pink Full Moon With Agate & Mica with FREE earrings

These earrings are made with pretty glass seed beads and leaf with two dusky orange moonstone beads in each one as a celebration to the Full Moon just passed.  The earring finding is gold plated.

I will cover aspects such as what is a mala, mantras etc, but first I wanted to say this mala inspires grace and elegance in my thoughts when I look at it.  It’s dreamy in it’s colours, giving warmth yet fluidity in the movement of the gentle tassle made up of lots of tiny seed beads.

So I will start with the mantra, that being a triple mantra that came to my whilst making this mala, the words of which are:

Aad Guray Nameh, Jugaad Guray Nameh, Sat Guray Nameh, Siri Guroo Dayv-ay Nameh
Aad Such Jugaad Such Hai Bhee Such Nanak Hosee Bhee Such
Aad Such Jugaad Such Hai Bhai Such Nanak Hosee Bhai Such

Agate Crystal Healing Beads

Agate’s most noticeable properties overall are balancing yin/yang energy, courage, protection, healing, and calming. Historically it was placed in water for cooking or drinking to dispel sickness. The Metaphysical and Healing Properties Lore of any specific type of agate depend to some extent on the color of the agate, but all agates have certain things in common.  In this instance because of it’s relation to the sacral chakra it is a gentle orange, perfect for balancing this area with it’s vibrational resonance.

Mica has reflective qualities to recognize flaws and see them with love. It is used to improve visions and clarity in mysticism. It is said to help eliminate negative personality traits by helping one recognize them. Mica is said to enhance flexibility in all realms and also assist growth in those areas.

Because the Mica crystal is a chemical stabilizer it is very good for emotional/mental issues in helping one to stabilize any emotions that may be running out of control. Mica helps us to see the entire picture and all aspects within it, this allows for better decision making on our part.

Mica healing crystals help us to see and remove traits that may be contrary to our true selves. It increase the flexibility of our emotions, mind and body.

Due to Micas reflective nature it allows us to see things more clearly it also aids clarity with visions. Mica can be used to grid the Earth where ever it is prone to earthquakes.

Micas healing properties also help to ease anger, rage, hysterics and nervousness. Enables us to align our energy centers and assist in releasing old blocked energy, it assist those that are lost to find their way again.

Handknotted Silk, Glass & Seed Bead Spring Mala

Handknotted Silk, Glass & Seed Bead Spring Mala

This beautiful Spring mala blossomed under the Spring Equinox or Vernal Equinox as some call it.  The colours and pieces jumped out at me and called to be seamlessly hand knotted with a royal silk blue thread.

If you don’t know what a mala is please scroll below for more information, this is a full 108 bead mala with a gold bead at the end called the Guru Bead, Seva Mother or Mother Bead. It validates the end of one round in the prayer cycle. One prayer, chant, affirmation – one bead. On a full sized mala the guru bead is the 109th bead.

untitled-0077

The main component on the counting beads are made of fire polished Czech glass and is surprisingly light to hold.  The lovely Spring coloured tassle is made from howlite seed beads, I will cover about howlite a little later on.

Let me tell you a little about glass.

Glass is an ancient material, one of the most ancient known and used by man. The first glass used was natural obsidian, volcanic glass, used to make arrowheads, knives, jewelry, etc. Glass objects created of man made glass are reported to have been found as early from as 4,500 BC in Mesopotamia and 3,000 BC in ancient Egypt. Many consider glass to have no metaphysical properties, but others who are aware, realize that glass has energy like all else in the Universe, and thus has its own set of properties. Glass is a melding of the traditional four elements, because through fire and air the silica earth element is made molten and transmuted into a liquid only to return to its earthly state as an apparent solid. It can be made to focus light or allow light to pass through invisibly or carry lightwaves great distances through tiny strands. Metaphysically, glass represents and carries the energies of transformation, merging of elements, rebirth, focus and communication. The colors of the glass bring the vibrations of those specific color energies.

Howlite

Keyword: Calming

Spiritual and Psychic Properties

Spiritually, howlite is a stone of awareness. It can prepare the user or wearer to receive wisdom and attunement from the Higher Self and the Divine. It is also used for dimensional travel and healthy meditation.

Howlite can also be used to release attachments, or cords, linking old emotional pain, from this life or a past life, to the present. Once these atachments are severed, it allows for processing those emotions and bringing peace in those areas.

Mental and Emotional Properties

Howlite is a wonder stone for calming upset states of mind and emotion. Howlite decreases an overly critical state of mind, selfishness, stress, and anxiety, bringing calm and relaxation. Howlite also can decrease anger originating from within or externally. The wake of such calming can help one be truly comfortable as oneself without the need to pretend to be anything but what you are.

Subtlety and tact are also energies that howlite brings. This can calm difficult communications and ease confrontations., particularly by decreasing rudeness and facetiousness.

Howlite is also used to heighten creativity and expand self-expression.

Physical Conditions Properties

Howlite is used in crystal healing for pain, insomnia (especially as a gem elixir before bed)

Malas

This particular piece is a 108 bead mala.  In Hinduism and Sikhism this means a string of prayer beads, much like a Catholic rosary.

Malas are used for keeping count while reciting, chanting or mentally repeating a mantra or the name or names of a deity.  The beads therefore should be sufficient in size to make the counting easy.

When I knot malas I generally sing a mantra.  With this one I christened it with the happy “Om” mantra

This particular mala was hand knotted with silk, Czech glass fire polished cobalt navy blue beads, Czech glass fire polished matte metallic gold beads with an Afghan seed bead pendant gold plated.

Descriptions of the healing properties of crystals will be explained throughout this publication.

The best way to chose the ‘right’ crystal or gemstone jewellery is to be intuitive, use your instincts.  The stones have a vibrationary element that will be right for you or not.  Many people ‘think’ about it too much. I find the 1st one even from a photo that you are drawn to is generally the ‘right’ one for you or for that time.

untitled-0072

Om Mantra

In Hinduism, Om (also spelled Aum) is a Hindu sacred sound that is considered the greatest of all mantras. The syllable Om is composed of the three sounds a-u-m (in Sanskrit, the vowels a and u combine to become o) and the symbol’s threefold nature is central to its meaning. It represent several important triads:

  • The three worlds – earth, atmosphere, and heaven
  • The three major Hindu gods – Brahma, Vishnu, and Siva
  • The three sacred Vedic scriptures – Rg, Yajur, and Sama

Thus Om mystically embodies the essence of the entire universe. This meaning is further deepened by the Indian philosophical belief that God first created sound and the universe arose from it. As the most sacred sound, Om is the root of the universe and everything that exists and it continues to hold everything together.

The Owner to be of this mala will make it their own, but the colours call out to me relate to the solar plexus and 3rd eye.

Here is a little bit about each chakra mentioned above.

Solar Plexus

solar plexusThe Solar Plexus Chakra, located between the navel and solar plexus, is the core of our personality, our identity, of our ego.

The third chakra is the center of willpower. While the Sacral chakra seeks pleasure and enjoyment, the third chakra is all about the perception of who you are.

The gift of this chakra is sensing your personal power, being confident, responsible, and reliable.

The third chakra is the center of your self-esteem, your willpower, self-discipline, as well as warmth in your personality.

The energy of this chakra allows you to transform inertia into action and movement. It allows you to meet challenges and mover forward in your life.

The main challenge for the third chakra is to use your personal power in a balanced manner.

What does that mean? It means consciously harnessing the energy of the solar plexus chakra. It means being proactive rather then reactive or inactive.

Beings with excessive third chakra energy react to life circumstances, they have emotional outbursts and are often stressed out.

Beings with blocked or deficient third chakra are passive and inactive – allowing life to pass by while they do nothing.

Strong third chakra reflects the ability to move forward in life with confidence and power. It reflects the ability to make conscious choices to choose and to act.

The message of the third chakra is: You have the power to choose.

You can choose to achieve your life purpose or you can live out your karma or past experiences.

What do you choose?

Do you choose love, light and healing?

Do you accept that you have the power to choose?

Do you feel a sense of freedom when you make a choice?

The third chakra is the center of your self-esteem.

Every time you judge or criticize yourself, you deplete this chakra and weaken your willpower.

Self love, self acceptance, and acknowledgement of your own worth are the building blocks of the third chakra.

A woman with an open and balanced Manipura Chakra values herself and her work, is confident in her ability to do something well, loves and accepts herself, is willing to express herself in a powerful way, knows that she has the freedom to choose to be herself and direct her own life.

3rd Eye

The Third Eye Chakra transcends time. It is located in the brain, at the brow, above the base of the nose.

third-eye-chakra.jpg.pagespeed.ce.mz56G6w0K5

The gift of this chakra is seeing – both inner and outer worlds.

The energy of this chakra allows us to experience clear thought as well as gifts of spiritual contemplation and self reflection.

Through the gift of seeing we can internalize the outer world and with symbolic language we can externalize the inner world.

The energy of Ajna allows us to access our inner guidance that comes from the depths of our being. It allows us to cut through illusion and to access deeper truths – to see beyond the mind, beyond the words.

The “way of the third eye” is seeing everything as it is from a point of “witness” or “observer”, or from simply being mindful – moment by moment.

It means examining self-limiting ideas and developing wisdom that comes from a perspective that transcends the duality of good or bad, black or white. It means seeing and helping others to see the deeper meanings of the situations in their lives.

Sixth chakra is holistic in nature. When this chakra is fully activated, both hemispheres of the brain function in synchrony. The right hemisphere’s creativity and synthetic thinking is integrated and balanced with left hemisphere’s logical and analytical thinking.

The Third Eye is not only the seat of wisdom, but also a seat of conscience. This is where you not only see what is going on, but you also know what it means. This is where your sense of justice and your ethics originate.

When your third eye is open, you not only see but you also understand.

Rudraksha Seeds

Hindus & Buddhists alike revere Rudraksham as ‘holy beads’, which confer peace, power & protection.

In Sanskrit, the name literally means ‘tears of God.’

Rudraksham are considered sacred soul jewellery because they have the power to influence, evolve and protect your life on the deepest level, the soul.  The soul grows only through high, peaceful, divine vibrations.

54 Bead Mala With Shannon Knot Volcanic Stone, Agate & Silver Shannon Knot

54 Bead Mala With Shannon Knot Volcanic Stone, Agate & Silver Shannon Knot

This mala is a chunkier one than my usual style.  I had behind it’s creation the idea of making something more masculine as I have had a few enquiries in this area.

As such the beads are bigger/heavier and the colours more earth like.

The reaction to this style has been favored by both men and women, the weight gives a lovely presence to be held in one’s hand or pocket or worn, you will feel it’s reassuring weight.

This mala has been hand knotted with silk within an infusion containing the ancient healing oils of frankincense.

It has been christened with the great & victorious, Ketan Patwardhan – Mahamrityunjaya Mantra

Mala

(in Hinduism and Sikhism) a string of prayer beads.

Malas are used for keeping count while reciting, chanting, or mentally repeating a mantra or the name or names of a deity

Agate

Protects & balances you.  A good general healing stone, gives strength

Volcanic Stone

Physical, mental strength & courage.

Raises energy levels, libido & creative energy.

Stability, anger management, radiation shielding & female fertility.
