We have recently been reading up on Japa mala and decided to make one for a dear friend of ours. We absolutely love the result and hope they do, as well!
We found a gorgeous druzy stone to use as our guru bead. In stone lore this pretty quartz stone is said to magnify the effects of the other stones.
Small, red carnelian stones were included to improve health, aid vitamin absorption, stimulate the sacral chakra and heal the base chakra.
Oblong stones of amazonite were added to help balance and ground while providing gentle guidance toward inner harmony and quieting overpowering thoughts.
Amethyst was added because it is the amazing “all-healer” of stones and is great for soothing nerves and supporting the emotional body and bringing people back to center. We chose rose quartz as our marker beads because we wanted to imbue this mala with love and rose quartz is the stone of love! It also assists people in accepting necessary change and is especially supportive of the female reproductive system.
We had so much fun creating this Japa mala for our friend that we intend to create more to offer to our customers! We will add them to our shop as we complete them.
