A mala that feels all about the soft warm energies of Spring...and with good reason! Not only is it reminiscent of the colours of spring, but the stones used (primarily Chrysoprase) are strongly associated with nature, and the natural world. It’s hand knotted and finished with a pale pink tassel* When not being used for mantras...this one looks super pretty on! Traditionally Mala’s are made with 108 beads with a larger stone (the Guru or Meru stone) that the 108 turn around like planets around the Sun. The number 108 has long been held as a sacred number in Hinduism. It connects the Earth , the moon, and the Sun. The average distance between the Sun & the moon to the earth is 108 times their respective diameters. The circumference of the Sun is said to be 108 times the circumference of the Earth. In Vedic culture 108 is viewed as a number of the wholeness of existence. In yogic traditions, there are 108 sacred sites throughout India, and 108 sacred places of the body. Place the Mala between your middle & ring finger. Starting at the Guru/Meru stone, use your thumb to count each smaller stone as you recite your mantra. Properties of Chrysoprase: Chrysoprase is a beautiful stone for helping us to improve our emotional health. It promotes forgiveness, empathy, self-growth, self-love, and general joie de vie Chrysoprase can be used to heal the energy of the heart chakra and promote a much stronger flow of energy through it. In fact, Chrysoprase is one of the best stones you can use as a heart chakra stone...it clears and promotes the energy of the heart chakra. Chrysoprase is closely connected to Spring and the natural world....promotes forgiveness and kindness, so you can reach out to nature’s joys more effectively Properties of Rose Quartz: As with all Quartz, this is a master Healer and contains the Universal Life force. But added to this, Rose Quartz is a heart stone. It carries soft feminine energy of compassion and peace, tenderness and healing. A crystal of unconditional love. *Nb: the tassel is currently still in its protective case...ready for you to remove once you get it home.
