Hubby found these beauties at a pawn shop a few weeks ago. Loving these high vibrating stones. Also known as the “Tempest Stone”.

Known to take Shamanic journeying to a whole new level.

Amber

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!

Yellow Tiger

Yellow Tiger2Not 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.

Coral

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.

Mookite Power

There are some days when I walk in to a bead store and certain stones will just call to me. This was the case with Mookite. I had visited our local store a few times before I decided to buy them and I was oh so excited to work with them.

Enamored with the different colors I quickly went on the search to find out more about this stone. One of the first places I visit is Energy Muse. I find their information quite extensive and Mookite did not disappoint.

My head is usually in the clouds and so working with stones that have a strong grounding effect is a nice change. I can say that while I was working on this piece, I absolutely found myself mellow. No drama was to be had around me and it was nice to feel my feet on the ground.

The supporting stones are Carnelian and Onyx. The Guru bead is Tiger’s Eye.

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.

Re-purposed Rosary

I was asked to incorporate a rosary that was given to my husband by his friend.

Rosary beads, mixed Tigers Eye, and Onyx.

It had been purchased in Jerusalem by his friends aunt and through the rounds became my husbands. For years it has been hanging on every car mirror we’ve ever had but had finally lost most of the beads and had been rigged to hang.

It was supposed to be for our car but Thomas fell in love with it and decided to carry it in his pocket instead. The picture doesn’t do its beauty justice.

 Update: Thomas wanted a heavier tassel because he keeps his in his pocket and the thread would bunch up and get messed up. I decided to re-string the whole lot since the wooden beads had started to stretch the yarn. Much tighter and added another bead to each side of the wooden beads to help keep it in place. The tassel is made with the same yarn as the mala so it stays helps it stay put and in all honesty I forgot to add the last three beads so I had to incorporate it in the tassel. He loves it and that’s all that matters.
