How to use your Mala :
When you first see your new Mala, hold her in your hands at your heart center and think about your intention for this Mala.
Give it time until you feel a bit of energy in your hands connecting to this Mala, then bring it to your mouth and whisper your intention into your Mala,. This gives her life and aligns her to your intention
This process is different for everyone but often people feel a tingling or warmth but no matter what, trust your intuition!
During meditation, hold each bead between your thumb and middle finger while chanting your Mantra. Never use the index finger.
A traditional Mala contains 108 + 1 Guru bead. I have found doing 27 chants per Mala works perfectly and has changed my life ! I use different Hand Malas for different chants and intentions.
If you want to do the traditional 108 chant, simply turn your Mala around 4 times .
I use spacer beads in my Malas, you can skip over those or use the spacers as a moment of mindfulness, fully feeling your intention connecting to the Mala. Then move to the next gemstone and continue chanting.
Your mala is not only a sacred tool, but also takes on the divine energetic charge of the mantra you are using, so take your time and constancy is key! You can also use an anointing oil to set in the scent of your intention.
How to care for your Mala :
Gemstones, metals, silk and elastic thread, can be affected by liquids and moisture, so please store your Malas in a safe, dry place when not wearing them.
All of my Malas and Oils are embedded with deep spiritual properties, so I recommend placing them in a sacred space when not using them such as an altar or a space that is special to you. ** If you carry them with you, please keep them in the pouch they came in
Everything is made by hand by me ( with lots of love ) so please treat them with love and store them in a safe place.
They are not made to be worn working out or in the shower. So please, do not get them wet! Don’t over stretch the elastic Malas, to much tension can cause the elastic band to break.
Treat them with love and care and they should last for years.
My Malas are not meant to be cleaned except to sit in the full moon energy, just wear them, chant with them, travel with them and enjoy!
*** It’s natural for the threads and elastic of your Mala to loosen and weaken over time and sometimes it may even break. I know just how heart breaking this can be however, it’s often a sign that you've gotten what you need from your Mala. This can be seen as a big breakthrough and transformation, that your Mala has completed it’s energetic job it was created to do. It’s also been said that this symbolizes spiritual growth !
So, here are some ideas what to do with your Mala if it breaks after wearing it for a while.
1. Put it on your altar to remind you of the accomplishments you’ve made
2. Use the beads in a sacred candle
3. Buy a new Mala to CELEBRATE & bring in the new
