Not too long ago I was at the bead store and this bright yellow strand was just screaming for me to pick it up and study it. It reminded me of summer and a slice of lemon pie. Fascinated to see what I could do with it I brought home a few. Nothing quite seemed to mesh until I had used Tiger’s Eye in another mala and was captivated by the yellow in it.
Garnet begins the journey as the first set of beads bringing a connection to Mother Earth and grounding our feet while providing energy movement up the spine. I’ve been fascinated with Garnet and I knew with the colors in the mixed Tiger’s Eye, I had a winner. Its association to the 1st, 4th, and 7th chakras has been known to aid in the Kundalini awaking and is an ancient talisman.
Yellow Agate has the gentle vibration of slow and steady and it’s color is associated with the 3rd chakra. Setting intentions on clarity, decision making, and will power are aided by the natural properties of Agate and reinforced by it’s deliberate purpose. The 3rd chakra is also represented by the ultimate power stone, Tiger’s Eye. Another ancient talisman, this gem is known to sharpen senses and “see” using insight and perception.
Loving this Garnet, Agate, and Tiger’s Eye combination. Their natural healing and metaphysical properties make an easy friendship and can lend a hand in personal transformation.
I am so hypnotized by the different patterns each bead has in this mala. Spending time with each one sends me into a state of wonder and amazement. In good light some of the stones even have transparency! Its funny how some beads are uniform in color and others have so much variety they can be hard to describe. This is one of those hard to describe malas.
Banded Agate and Rutilated Agate combine with Onyx, Quartz and Black Jade to bring a harmonious balance to your world. The gentle energy of Agate can help bring a slow and deliberate change in clarity, honesty, and peace. Rutile in the Agate helps to amplify these characters and bring in their own properties of strength and love. Three Quartz marker beads help boost your intentions and broadcast them to Universe while the Black Jade Guru bead acts as the ultimate protector and bodyguard for our etheric self.
While Agate and Onyx ground us to the Earth, Quartz and Jade spirit us off to the dream world and connects us to our higher self. Balance is key to manifesting our biggest dreams into reality on Earth.
Once again, through Coral, I am inspired. She has these amazing friends that keep popping up. I love seeing people helping people and her friend Lisa is no exception. You can just read, in Coral’s words, how much Lisa is loved and appreciated.
I can’t explain how I choose to create a new mala. Sometimes it’s the stones, a color, a memory or a person. It can even be a special date or just a full moon in a certain sign. It was in a post that Coral beautifully described all the things Lisa has done for her that inspired me to create this one. One that honored their friendship and Lisa.
I was told that her favorite color is blue and her favorite stone is Amethyst. Going off those two details and a quick peak at her social media I came up with this blue dream. I prefer to keep the final details secret hoping the the mala will speak for itself once it’s held, especially since I didn’t even include a list of the stones I used. Surprise!
Denim Lapis are like little mini water worlds with shades of light and dark blues. They carry the energies of healing and is associated with the Throat chakra. White Howlite marker beads have excellent properties ranging from calming and patience to expanding the consciousness and connecting to the moon, while Onyx brings in protection and and security. An Amethyst Guru bead to signify Lisa’s birthstone will help clear negative energy and connect the Crown chakra. Small but powerful, Moonstone can be your link to your own Divine Goddess. Associated with the Heart chakra it can open us up to giving and receiving love more freely.
I just wanted to say Thank You, Thank You, Thank You to someone I don’t know but who has clearly made a difference in my friends life. I hope these crystals enhance Lisa’s natural Divine gifts as she’s clearly a loving friend. The world is a better place because of her and her light is truly an inspiration.
