This sample Mala is made from two beautiful stones...Moss Agate & Chrysoberyl cats eye. And is finished with a feather charm. I really think that these make a wonderful companion to each other, sharing extremely lovely properties which are very much needed at this time. 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. Moss Agate is a stone that helps alleviate the stresses or pressures of society and will help show you that only you are in charge of your life. And Its grounding influence will help you maintain your connection to the earth... Chrysoberyl is also a very grounding stone, and has a very effective protective energy, dispelling unwanted energy from the aura. It is a stone said to bring good luck and fortune...it transforms negative thoughts into positive energy, and brings happiness and serenity, and increases feelings of optimism, generosity and confidence. It is also said to enhance creativity and kindness. Historically Chrysoberyl Cat's Eye is believed to protect the wearer from evil spirits.
