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.

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!

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.

Dear Rebecca,  there’s just too much to include in a tiny Thank You card and I’m certain there would be many more errors if I hand wrote this; so here’s more of the back story to your mala and your personal page for posterity. Oh yeah, I’m the one that entered a submission a few months back telling you of the cherry pit that fell on my laptop at the same time I was actually writing to you.

This year, I read three books that changed my life. You may have read them already. The first was Conversations With God. It unlocked the key to who I truly am and set me on a spiritual path that’s still being unveiled but one that I am committed to and excited to be on. The second was The Tenth Insight; Holding the Vision. In it, there’s a section that speaks of people earning a living being spiritual guides and more people will start to pay for these services. I don’t know why this concept was so foreign to me but the book changed my perception of it. I had heard your explanation of why you charge the price you do for readings and it helped complete the paradigm shift on paying for services that include spiritual energy.  Let’s just say I used to bake a lot of cakes for free. Your book Spirited was gifted to me and your videos are free so I felt the need to honor this new way of thinking and give back to you. I purchased your book, What the Dead have Taught Me About Living Well the next day.

I knew I would be gifted with some great messages but I didn’t expect this. Yours was the third book and the catalyst to what you hold in your hand. You mentioned malas as one of your go-to’s and since I’m on this path and looking for guidance I figured I’d see what they were about. After doing some research I knew I could figure out how to make one and got busy. More on that here. The first two I made for myself with the intention of re-connecting with my family on the other side. The first one, using a piece of turquoise directly connected to my grandfather. The second, a key inherited from my grandmother, his wife. The one with a key was purchased off my arm at Michael’s and the other is my go to for communication.

As I sit and work with each mala, names and faces come to me and inspire me to gift one. I get color and stone combinations without really knowing the person; then come to find out the ones I chose are actually quite fitting. Such as the case with yours. While I was working with it you kept coming to mind quite frequently. Let’s just say you’ve never popped in on any other ones. 🙂  I brushed the thoughts aside and put it on the website for sale. To be completely honest…. it’s my favorite one and I even considered keeping it for myself. Yet every time I looked at it, it gently reminded me that it was meant for you. As you go through the site you’ll see that most of my inspirations are loved ones that have passed. I’m not sure who picked that particular one for you but I hope you connect with it.

Again, I wanted to say Thank You. Thank You. Thank You. Your messages have been inspirational and the synchronicity is Divine.

Below is the original description of the mala. Feel free to contact me with any questions about it.

All the best,

| Eileen

Being asked to create a mala for someone you’ve never met can be a challenge.

Turquoise, Amethyst, Amazonite, Rose Quartz, and Moonstone.

Such as the case with this one. A friend of a friend saw Coral and asked if I would create one for her. She mentioned that she likes Turquoise and Amethyst. Creeping through her Facebook page gave me enough information to put together the mala here.

Tamara runs an animal sanctuary and is very involved in educating the community. It seemed fitting that the medallion on the tassel would be a cuff link inherited by my grandfather. He was a doctor here in Albuquerque with healing hands and a caring heart. You can read more about him here. Sharing these qualities make them a perfect pair.

Cheers to saving lives and making a difference!

Dear Mr. Walsch,

I finished your book yesterday, 8.28.18. I must admit, I’m as giddy as a school girl. I hope you’ll see the letters and gift sent to you are, in fact, confirmations of normal, every day people waking up and accepting the challenge to Awaken the Species. In changing my self and being consciously aware to make better choices with and for those around me, I have seen a difference in how I treat them and how they respond. I call it “The Slow Death of Ego”. It’s a struggle every day but it is getting easier. Traffic is still a challenge but my attitude has shifted considerably and more to the positive.

In light of your recent heart issues, I’m am happy to say that the mala in your hands is extremely beneficial for heart ailments and the heart chakra. You may want to keep it after all. 🙂

One of the ways that I take inspiration is from my family members. Especially those that have passed. My paternal grandmother passed away back in 1995 and while I was able to spend some time with her I don’t think I had the opportunity to really know her.

Now that I look back on family pictures and hear stories about her I’m able to appreciate her and see her in a new light. In honor of my grandmother, Garnet B. Rice.

Made with Desert Jasper, Turquoise, Garnet, and Rose Quartz. The key was inherited from my grandmother.

Here is a link to the original letters sent to Mr. Walsch for those who would like a back story as to why this mala was gifted.

I have this friend and she’s super amazing. She inspires me daily just for the fact that she lives life out loud. Damned if she doesn’t have some really rough days and with all honesty, throws it out there for everyone to see. If you read her blog she leaves it all on the table and I’ll be honest, some days are difficult to read. I love her braveness to expose herself to so much rawness in order to heal and her willingness to take on haters who would most likely challenge, judge and condemn her publicly. She no longer lives in the dark and her wounds and pain are brought to new light daily. I knew her in high school and I had no idea that her life was so painful. Twenty years later and we’re trying to find ways to heal from our experiences and it’s my opportunity to be a better friend this time around.

img_0288A beautiful soul who has been through so much. She recently lost her mother to cancer and it has been extremely difficult for her. Through Facebook I get to witness her life and watch her handle those curve balls we all get thrown but are usually too embarrassed to talk about. It is in those, she often expresses how much she misses her mother and Sherry’s Lessons are often a subject matter for her blog and reveal life lessons we can all use.

It is Coral’s honesty and fortitude that inspire me and with those gifts, she has shared stories about her mom that have made me chose a different path than I would have before. Grateful for the lessons, I was inspired to create this beauty in their honor.

A bit of research on the two of them and found they share similar stones in their astrology so coming up with a design was easy.

Born at the end of February this girl is a mini me. Only a couple days into Pisces and she was raised by an Aquarian mother so she’s a little wacky.

A loyal friend to all, she’s experiencing this lifetime in full color.

Created using mixed Tigers Eye, Carnelian, Onyx, and Rose Quartz. Flower medallion taken from a necklace; provided by my aunt Finnie.
