PROTECTION + STABILITY + NURTURING
This mala has such a grounding and nurturing vibe, mirroring the colors of mother nature, she will surely keep you close to the outdoors. Sandalwood is at the center of the mala, known as the meru bead and this is where your intention and mantras are stored. Every bead after the meru is meditated on and when you complete 108 mantras, you then work your way backwards on the mala. This is known as japa meditation, japa meaning repetition.
This mala is hand-knotted with 6mm African Turquoise stones on nylon cord and finished off with a soft cotton tassel. Contains 108 beads, a high vibration number to keep your mantras counted during meditation.
AFRICAN TURQUOISE is a teal, speckled form of jasper, a stone of evolution bringing about great change and transformation. Jasper is a stone of physical strength and vitality, allowing one’s energies to stabilize and ground. This stone is connected to the first chakra or root chakra which is connected to the element earth. Often worn by shamans for protection, this stone also holds an aspect of solar energy connected to the solar plexus. This stone was often called the “supreme nurturer.”
This mala is associated with the root and solar plexus chakras. Chakras are located within the subtle body along the spine. Imagine your spine to be a super highway with six major intersections (chakras) with the seventh intersection at the top branching out to other highways (other realms). Sometimes these intersections can get blocked and stagnant - fortunately, crystals help to clear these intersections bringing the mental, emotional and physical bodies into harmony.
