What is a Memory Mala?

Traditionally, malas are Buddhist prayer garlands used during meditation consisting of 108 beads and 1 larger guru bead that closes the loop. Each smaller bead represents a breath, a mantra, and/or intention and is used to keep count while the guru bead represents the student-teacher relationship. You can read more about traditional malas here. I believe a mala can also be an object used to help a person connect to their higher power(s), guides, and/or intentions. A worry stone, a piece of jewelry, a totem, a baseball cap, a rosary, anything we can physically touch and carry that helps remind us of who we are and what our purpose is, can be considered a mala. Have you ever found yourself touching your wedding ring when you lovingly think of your spouse or grabbing your favorite blanket that your grandma crocheted when things get rough because it reminds you that you are loved? These gifts remind us of who we are in the world and connect us to a higher power through unconditional love.

Each mala I create has a story and a purpose. Sometimes it’s a tribute to a loved one with birthstones, sometimes a healing journey with stones to help physical, mental, and/or spiritual ailments, a business venture that uses stones to attract abundance, or for guidance in manifesting a future unseen. With life as busy as it is and being bombarded with information from computers, phones, TV, family and friends…. sitting quietly can be hard to do; much less putting that stuff away to sit purposely and not think about anything or only one thing. For me, setting aside time to meditate is difficult and so I find myself communicating with my higher powers during my day doing everyday things. Usually, while I’m driving or going for a walk, taking a shower or even while I vacuum. Wearing a mala on a daily basis helps me to focus on my goals, plus I get to carry multiple healing crystals with me and harness their power in every day situations. You can read of a particular time when a mala called to me right before a stressful encounter here. Depending on each design and crystal combination, I rely on them to remind me of my intentions when my mind isn’t focused and I will often ask for guidance in certain situations. I recently decided to work more closely with my guides and wanted to create a mala that would remind me of this goal. I knew this would be a perfect opportunity to explain how a mala works for me and to show the creation process. Mehiel2

In 2017, I had an experience that encouraged me to find out more about myself in a more Universal way and I started learning about numerology, astrology, soul groups, and guides. I found that being born on February 8th awarded me the guidance of “The Vivifying God” and after some research, which there is very little of, I realized I was much like others described in his group. It’s taken over a year to be comfortable enough in my role to actually start working with this guide. I created this particular mala to help me connect to my Guardian Angel Mehiel. According to the information I found, the color that best connects to him is brown and the best stone for this is Tiger’s Eye. Some of my favorite mala’s I’ve created for others have been using mixed Tiger’s Eye and I was super excited to finally be creating one for myself, especially one so important.

The next best stone to connect with him is Smokey Quartz. Unfortunately, I didn’t have any on hand and couldn’t find any in the local bead stores. I wanted to complete this mala in time for the new moon in Scorpio so I could charge it with new intentions and I definitely didn’t have time to order any since I only had one day to put it together. I opted instead for another brown stone I had on hand and had been wanting to use for myself anyway, brown banded Jasper. Along with it’s metaphysical properties it’s also a valuable conduit to Mehiel. As I looked for the remaining stones to use I became aware that I hadn’t worked with Onyx very much and Rose Quartz was nowhere in my arsenal. When a mala starts to be realized I can go through as many as different stones and combinations as there are stars in the sky, so creating the perfect infusion can be time consuming, especially when I’m researching their properties. I’ve been known to miss more than one new or full moon or a special event but thankfully, if I can let go of my perfectionism, the design can come together quickly and quite nicely. Such as the case with Mehiel.

I knew I wanted this mala to remind me that I have an angel working with me, not just any angel, but one that has been willingly assigned to look out for me and help me along in my path. I chose the colors to represent him and the stones to amplify my intent with their metaphysical properties. Below is a list of the crystals and how each one is helping me to either remember my goal or accomplish it.

Yellow Tiger’s Eye – Focus and insight. Keen observation. Supports change, creativity, talent and abilities. Stimulating wealth. Reflects Spirit through actions

Blue Hawk’s Eye – Authoritative. Deeper insight and awareness. Increased sensory gifts. Align with cosmic forces for inspirational guidance.

Red Ox Eye – Contains Hematite, grounding. Courage, inner strength and self confidence. Enthusiasm, determination, and action.

Onyx – Powerful. Has a history of negative traits but with work and intent can banish grief and release physical and emotional wounds, drawing in happiness and good fortune. Retains energy and can hold physical memories. Centering and alignment to connect to higher powers for guidance. Can absorb from Universe the energies needed.

Brown Jasper – Beads and Guru Bead. Nurturer and healer. Courage and wisdom. Grants access to past lives for karmic healing. Connection to ancient past for retrieval of spiritual knowledge for use in this present to help heal humanity and the planet.

Rose Quartz – Unconditional love. Direct heart chakra. Giving and receiving. High spiritual attunement. Mothering crystal; nurturing of self. Forgiveness of past mistakes. Erasing primal imprints and replacing with and accepting infinite source of love from self. Higher consciousness.

Pietersite – Discharges negative energy and clears the aura. Increases personal will and intuitive abilities. Brings up internalized feelings and conflicts to begin the healing process and move towards highest good. Clears stagnant energy. Actionable will. Promotes truth and honesty. Keys to the Kingdom of Heaven. Third Eye stimulation. Shamanic journeying. You will see something in a new light.

Rainbow Moonstone on a white and brown tassel – Connects us to Divine inspiration. Increased synchronicity. Intuition and insight. Clarity and Crown Chakra. Strong connection to the spiritual world. Fertility and moon cycles.  The tassel can represent many things and my personal mantra for this particular one is “Thank you for the guidance and protection as I am birthed into a new light”. The white in the tassel represents a new beginning in my journey with clarity and a blank slate; while the brown represents Mehiel and his many gifts as my guardian.

I literally strung this mala during the night of the new moon and set it outside, with the rest of my crystals, for the remainder of the morning to charge. I grabbed about four hours of sleep and was excited to see what the day would bring while I wore it. I wasn’t disappointed as several messages came through that day with 333. A license plate, a Facebook post, a verbal conversation, and the time on the microwave, all indicating I’m on the right track and I am being helped. I have to admit though, it’s a powerful combination and I had a few emotional moments during the day. I have to face some fears about money and health and those came to the front quickly, all of which are part of the healing process. I have to remember that I am in control of my thoughts and these feelings need to be addressed so I can move forward in my evolution; but I have to face my fears and handle them differently than I have in the past. As I continue to work with Mehiel I will wear it when it feels right or when I am meditating and looking for specific answers and guidance from my angel.

Hopefully I’ve explained how a mala can become a tool to help you remember your goals and intentions while connecting to your higher self, powers, guides, and loved ones. Memory Malas can also become heirlooms for loved ones. As we see with Onyx, some crystals can carry the memory of the wearer along with lessons and messages. Passing on our love is one way to stay connected even after we’ve departed this earth. I personally enjoy other people holding my mala’s and letting them feel their intensity but it’s important to remember to smudge/clean/charge your stones to keep them healthy and pure with the essence of your highest and best self. Releasing negative energy is an important part of keeping your tools sharp and stones can pick up lots of baggage that we don’t need or want to carry forward with us. Visit the website to see how other crystal combinations help me and my clients or use my Contact page to reach me with any questions.

A Brief Herstory

I suppose I owe myself, and everyone reading, a back story of sorts. For posterity as well as a record of how I got here. I did say this was a journal about a Lightworker in this new energy so it’s time I started writing. Pretty much anything before 2012 is just part of my history and I’m sure many stories will make their way here, since this really is about healing old wounds and moving forward. It’s hard to say when the shift occurred but I remember a few very specific moments that are important to this story. That’s not to say every single moment didn’t play a part, only that these two are set apart because of their meaning and it’s important to acknowledge the synchronicity.

In 2012, Thomas was away at prison. I’m not sure how long we were into his sentence but I must have hit a pretty hard low. One night I was so lost and in despair, I pounded my fists against my laptop keyboard creating two permanent indention’s. My computer was never the same. During the time he was gone I was seeing 11:11, a lot. There wasn’t a bunch of information on it as I remember looking it up but nothing really struck me. Thomas came home as scheduled and we went on about life but 11:11 was always in the back of my mind. It wouldn’t be until much later the number 11 would show itself again, and in spades.

The second time 11:11 came to me was in July 2017 when Thomas and I were visiting his mom in Nevada. His step-father had just passed away and we were helping her with the estate. Several unusual things happened during the three months we were back and forth and for me, they changed the course of my life. 11a35ca1-b0c2-463c-877b-f495a4715c1fOne in particular was when Thomas stayed in NV and I was home in NM. It was a beautiful sunny morning in June and I was sitting in the back yard enjoying some fresh cannabis. As my mind started to wander, I was thinking about all the unusual experiences I had been having and wondered how do I share those and not sound like I belong in a straight jacket on medication. I was having these amazing experiences and wanted to share them but realized I had no one that would really understand. I ended up in a meditation of sorts and my thoughts started to turn dark. As I continued to remember some of the more outlandish ones the more fearful I became of sharing my truth. At some point my thoughts went to a really dark place and I knew, without a doubt, that if I continued down the road of fear I would manifest my demise in a mental facility and it scared the shit out of me. I could see everything I would be losing, including the freedom to make my own choices. I could see myself in a straight jacket, strapped to a bed and in an observation room with windows. It was crippling and  it almost became my reality. I felt myself slipping away and every dark thought perpetuated another and eventually, my thoughts shifted to suicide. My darkest moment came when the ultimate fear crept in and I started thinking this would be my future because I couldn’t stop the spiral and suicide was the more pleasant option.

I believe I had a spirit with me during this experience. One that committed suicide and was trying to show me what it’s like to have these uncontrollable and extreme thoughts and the dangers of saying the wrong things to the wrong people. It shut me down and I think I was literally scared awake. It took a long time but I became aware of the thought process and where it was leading me and I chose to get up and go take a shower. I sincerely felt I just had a battle with the devil and I needed to clear my head and recharge. The shower is my meditation space and I have the best conversations with my guides there. I’m sure in many lifetimes and in many different situations, I’ve been held against my will and in this one it’s not my destiny to go like that. My fear of not being able to acknowledge or even explore who I am without others judging me and deciding for me what was best is a karmic struggle. I knew the shower would be much needed, I just didn’t know that it would be another opportunity evaluate who I was.

The event shook me up so bad, I couldn’t get it out of my head while I was in the shower. I kept replaying scenes and feelings and then I would remember why I pulled out of it. And then I would replay them again, and again I would be reminded of why I chose to not participate in the process. I cried in pain, I cried in confusion, I cried in guilt, I cried in hopelessness. It was a struggle for the first two-thirds of my shower and eventually I got the courage to believe it wasn’t my future. Then I started to cry in joy, happiness, gratefulness and awe mixed with doubt and lack of direction. Once I truly started to believe I was not meant to live that life and was determined not to live in fear, the heaviness started to lift. I could feel myself start to grow taller and stronger. More calm yet ready for a fight. I thought it would be a battle with myself over my self and, as I stepped out of the shower feeling empowered and confident, I knew I could change myself for my self. I threw open the shower curtain and said, “Fucking bring it!” Little did I know there was another message waiting for me. Let’s just say, now I know better. Messages are everywhere, this day just happened to be Universe giving me a gentle redirection.

As I got out of the shower I felt the need to thank the spirit that was with me. However that experience happened, I just let it roll and was truly grateful for the intuition and guidance. She visits often when there are lessons for me to learn, especially when it comes to playing / working in the field of energy and metaphysical realms as well as relationship issues. It’s because of her and stories about her I’ve been able to navigate my path a little better.

Just reeling from two big experiences I headed to my dressing room to get dressed and was hoping for a break on the emotional roller coaster. Before I even walked in the closet I decided I needed some good music to improve the vibe. My eyes were puffy and swollen from crying and I was in this happy but weird and confused space. I was hoping music would push me towards my happy place so I could put the experiences I had just had behind me. It wasn’t but a few minutes before I was hit again. I can’t remember what song was playing but at some point I felt this surge from inside, like a tidal wave building and I heard a voice ask, “Are you ready to share your experiences and be a light and inspiration for those around you?” The question knocked me to my knees, literally. I was not prepared for this. I started crying again as a wave of emotions came flooding back. I had no idea what this meant or what I was supposed to do with it but I knew this was not a time to lose my faith, my courage, nor my vision of who I am and who I wanted to become. I’m not going to lie, I had to think about it first though.

As I was on my knees and crying, I was having this simultaneous conversation with myself and what I can only describe as my higher power about why I was afraid and didn’t think I could do what was being asked, even though I had no clue what was really being asked. Every time I had an excuse of why I couldn’t or didn’t understand, I was reminded of all the reasons why I should and intuition told me I knew better. I was reminded that I’ve been a teacher, a writer, a wife, a mother, a sister, a lover, a friend, a daughter, and everything in between over many lifetimes. I was also reminded I have screwed up some of those roles so badly, I’ll never be able to make amends to those I’ve hurt and the lessons can still sting. It is in those memories of pain and suffering that keep me thinking I’m not worthy of being a teacher to anyone, as if those mistakes don’t count towards my education. It was then I was reminded of how strong I actually am and what I have to contribute is worthy. I was asked again, “Are you ready to share your experiences and be a light and inspiration to others? There are people who need to hear you.”

I felt like I had just gone ten rounds in a spiritual sparring match except I hadn’t even thrown a punch or gotten hit. I was on my knees and emotionally spent. I don’t think there was ever a doubt as to what my choice would be but to not question it would have been foolish and not my style. As I started to rise and claim my place in this world I felt a sense of encouragement and peace knowing that everything would work out and in time I would be given more information. It was the following month in July while back in NV that I saw 11:11 on my mother-in-laws oven clock and it felt like a time warp back to 2012. I immediately remembered my first experience and wondered what they had in common. It was quickly revealed 11’s play a big role in my life and so began my introduction to numerology.

It’s been a little over a year since that day and I think of it often. The details have started to slip but I can still feel the emotions tied to it and the path reveals itself when it’s ready. Since then, the books I’ve read, the experiences I’ve had and the people I’ve met have led me here and played a huge role in my shift. I’m still not quite sure what I’m doing and I don’t have all the answers. All I know is every day I’m given opportunities to do things better. Every day something, someone, or some situation comes to me that represents my past choices and I can either see them for what they are and change my behavior or I can continue doing what I have been doing, living in fear and just surviving.

I have been contemplating this blog for months and what it’s purpose is and lately I’ve been getting signs to start exploring it more. This morning’s reading is just confirmation that I am in the right place to start sharing and being a light and inspiration to others. It has been a very active year and much of it needs to be reflected on. So many lessons for me and I think they can help others, not to mention the daily’s that still occur. When I started Blue Feather Muse back in November 2017, my original idea was to collaborate with artists and showcase their work. I would have these moments of awe and had a hard time describing them so I wanted other artists to portray them in their own way. In return for their work I wanted to set up an account for donations that would go to each artist. It was my hope that people would donate money to help enrich the artists lives. Let’s just say, it didn’t take long for me to see that wasn’t the purpose of this. During the first six months my journal entries became weird as I explored different avenues and found the blog to be a mess of thoughts and unfinished ideas. It’s been sitting stagnant for the last six months.

This past year has brought me some very spiritual, mental, and physical experiences that have changed my life and these past six months have moved fast. My twin flame connection to Thomas has proved to be the catalyst for this shift and while I thought everything was coincidence I now view everything as synchronicity with purpose and manifestation. I’ve become a work in progress vegetarian who lost seventy pounds over the course of six months and I still struggle with my food choices. I’m a student learning to channel energy in to stones for healing so that others may benefit as well while hoping to create a thriving business. I’m my own counselor who is able to practice with family and friends so I can become a better communicator and clear karmic bullshit. Everything I am working on for my soul’s evolution are things that probably everyone struggles with. Communication, fear, relationships, kids, husband, work, money, sex and death… it’s called life and it’s filled with opportunities to evolve. For so long, I’ve been operating out of fear which has kept my evolutionary progress hindered and divinity obscure.

I’d like to think that with all this work I’m doing on my self, my next life will be much easier to remember who I am. I will be able to enjoy the true beauty of any life I choose to create without the hard lessons from my previous ones. I am choosing to do the hard work this time around so that I can help myself and others evolve. We are in a major shift on this planet and I intend to be on the side of compassion and consciousness. My views and practices may not be for everyone and that’s OK, they aren’t meant for everyone. This is more for me to go back and watch my progress and history. I’m one of those people who like clear communication and validation so I did a second reading, just to be sure I was on the right track. And here we are…  If anyone finds anything they can use, take what you need and leave the rest.




Red Jasper, Desert Jasper, Turquoise, Garnet, & Rose Quartz

It’s funny how things work out. Call it coincidence or synchronicity. This mala has been hanging in my office for months. In the beginning of learning what these mala’s would become, I bought several types of beads and when a color or style would inspire me I would just string one together. Not really having a purpose, because I couldn’t bring myself to wear another person’s mala, it would just hang there.

Fast forward and it’s energy is ready to find a new home and soul to love and assist. I was gifted an opportunity to help some friends with their animal sanctuary and so this special beauty is being donated to raffle off.

Santuario de Karuna is an animal sanctuary and a non-profit organization raising awareness in compassion for all beings. Many of you have read how Coral inspires me daily and she is a co-founder of the sanctuary, along with her wife, Tamara. I don’t have money to donate but I do have things they can use that have been just hanging there, waiting to be of service. You can watch what I posted on my FaceBook 

I believe love perpetuates love. And Coral loves hard, she doesn’t know any other way. So, with this giant love fest going on and to whom ever this mala is intended for, it is in great honor of two women who have come to “know and be love” in their own sacred way. We gift you the freedom to determine your own sacred definition of love and use this mala to help create a passionate commitment. Whether that is to yourself, your art, your significant other, or your job… what ever it is that you are passionate about and love, you can harness the power from these beads and combine them to create amazing energy to help you on your path.

Red Jasper, Desert Jasper, Turquoise, Garnet, and Rose Quartz.

Jaspers are the nurturers, the healers and the spirit stones of courage and wisdom. They all carry a strong connection to the Earth’s energy, making the jasper healing properties very beneficial for grounding, stability and strength Energy Muse

Garnet can act as a strong help to balance the energy system, stimulate desires and uplift your attitude. As a balancer stone, Garnet can prevent fears of insecurity and even money losses. They’re lucky stones: lucky for love, success, and for goals. Use Garnet to increase your positivity and popularity, thus enhancing your personal self-esteem. As an energy stone, it can encourage success in business and business relationships. It is a wonderful executive gem, especially for women. – Crystal Vaults

Spiritually, Turquoise heals and cleanses both the energy centers and the physical body. It acts to induce wisdom and understanding, and to enhance trust, kindness, and the recognition of beauty. [Melody, 669] What we wish for ourselves — happiness, love, freedom of limitation and fear — when extended to others by letting go of our insistence of “justice” and viewing others through compassion and forgiveness, we receive those gifts back through our own heart. [Simmons, 420] – Crystal Vaults

Though it’s thought of as the stone of love, it’s not just romantic love that Rose Quartz crystal embodies. The rose quartz stone meaning is one of unconditional love. The way it facilitates love entering your life is through it’s ability to bring your consciousness to a higher level. Helping you to forgive, understand and see fights or situations from a different perspective, rose quartz healing properties will imbue you with the wisdom to deepen your connection with your partner. In that same way, rose quartz properties provide gentle energy that assists you in recognizing your own need for compassion. It allows you to see that you deserve forgiveness and understanding from yourself. Associated with the element of water, rose quartz healing properties are naturally fluid. They wash out toxic energies and emotions that you have trapped inside of you. – Energy Muse

Thank you for your contribution to the animals and the sanctuary. Much Love!

Alex1_wmI’m always in awe when signs come through to validate a mala I’m creating. While working on Alex, more than once did I feel angels giving me direction and validation. It started a few days ago when I was at the craft store wasting time while a prescription was being filled. I had thirty minutes to waste and JoAnne’s was just down the street. It wasn’t until I was ready to leave when these blue and green Jasper caught my attention. I thought of Alex right away. Not knowing if these were the right shades of color I felt pulled to get them anyway and asked for a sign. I knew I could use them for any other mala but I needed to know if these were for his mom. Waiting in line I was watching the progression and wondering which of the two cashiers I would get. I had had one of the ladies before and knew she was pleasant. The other one seemed like she was having a rough day and I was mentally preparing myself to make it a smooth transaction. I was next in line when another cashier came on to help. All I could think was, Thank You! As I was putting my stuff down and starting to chat with him I looked up to see his name tag, Alex.

I always ask guides and Universe for wisdom and light and I’ll say a prayer and invite any loved ones to bring in their highest and best energy.  I’ll light some candles, an incense, put on some groove music and get to work. Yesterday as I sat down to string the mala I had some hesitation at the third marker.  This is the half-way point and can be an important marker bead, especially if it’s worn around the neck. My original intention was to continue with the Howlite but something made me question it and I looked through my stash to see what I had on hand. The only one that made sense was Amethyst, his birthstone. I pulled out both and neither seemed to fit but the Cape Amethyst had a better feel. After struggling for a while I decided to stick with my original decision. As I went to reach across my table, the bowl of Jaspers got knocked over, sending them rolling right to the bag of Cape Amethyst. Hello!!

I strung the third marker bead as his birthstone and the closest to heaven when momma wears it around her neck. As soon as the Hematite next to it was knotted, I was gifted a message from one of my favorite messengers. An email from Rebecca Rosen chimed on my phone and I was inclined to read it at that moment. The words couldn’t have been more perfectly timed and I’m sharing them here.

img_0898I’m headed to Alex’s services and my heart is breaking for my cousin and her family. Today’s services will be hard and it also gives us a chance to celebrate. I imagine he’s in the arms of all our loved ones that have passed and they are watching us with love and compassion. In all my years at funerals it always makes me smile when I hear laughter. It seems like it would be out of place but in reality, it gives our family an opportunity to see people we haven’t seen in years and appreciate those relationships. Laughter is always around when we’re telling stories about each other and loving out loud. It gives me hope that even though today sucks, happiness will come around again. It won’t be the same, because we evolve from our experiences, but we will find joy again and I try to focus on that.

A tribute to my cousin Alex and his family. Thank you for gifting us your time here. You are loved and will be missed.

Serenity 2

Serenity2.2A favorite of everyone’s, Serenity was gifted to someone who recently inspired me. It’s beauty was striking and is still missed. Serenity 2 was inspired by the first creation and is a heavier version of the first.

Rhodonite in rondelle shape creates a shorter and more weighty mala. Onyx and Howlite pick up and energize the colors in Rhodonite.

Invite peace and healing back into your heart with this mala. As one of the most powerful heart chakra stones, Rhodonite encourages us to let go of old heartache and past trauma. Onyx lets us dive deeper into our heart and explore forgiveness while adding protection. Howlite helps us calmly process these emotions and provides us with peace and contentment. The Rose Quartz guru bead provides the finishing touch to dissolve those emotional wounds and speaks directly to the Heart chakra, allowing for full healing and opening us up to give and receive love.

Use as part of your meditation or wear it close to your heart during the day to remind you of your intentions to live heart centered.


Gifted to Santuario de Karuna


Amber1_wmWhen Amber contacted me about creating a mala for her, she asked for energy and patience. A single mom with small children at home. She also works with children daily so she needs both, for sure. Her favorite color is brown so the first stones that came to mind were Tiger’s Eye. I’ve also had Picture Jasper just waiting for a new home and this was the perfect opportunity.

I love using mixed colored Tiger’s Eye in my malas. The different colors add a depth and help with more of the chakra and color energies. An ultimate power stone, Tiger’s Eye helps with focused and fearless intentions.

Two Garnet marker stones connects to the the Root Chakra stimulating vitality and energy. Garnet is also associated with the Heart Chakra and love.

Two Onyx marker beads above the Tiger’s Eye are powerful protectors against negative energy and connection to Sagittarius. They can help stop negative thought patterns and help us face our fears.

Picture Jasper, also connected to the Root Chakra and adding physical and spiritual energy, is a nurturing and healing stone. An ancient stone that has been used to connect to Mother Earth for centuries. The third marker bead is White Quartzite and stabilizes the effects of positive changes. This stone will help in the longevity of the intention and balance of energy.

Completing the mala is a Tiger’s Eye Guru bead bringing healing and energy full circle. Turquoise on the tassel is a Master Healing stone and your power stone. It may be the oldest stone in man’s history as a talisman for shamans, kings, and warriors. Perfect for overall healing of body, mind, and spirit. Turquoise is associated with the Throat Chakra and helps in our communication. As energy is increased and harmony is restored, patience will start to flow easily and words will be more effective in your daily life.

To start, take time and sit with your mala. Just notice it’s uniqueness in colors, the way they feel, and their energy. You’ll find that a few will jump out at you. Take time to have a special connection with those. You can wear them around your neck or around your wrist. Similar to a rosary they’re intended to connect to a higher self and power so a special place that is visited often and has good vibes is an excellent place to store them when not in use. I hope they bring a positive change and help heal those energy blocks. Much Love!
