Mala dedicated to the Goddess Dhumavati Mala dedicated to the Goddess Dhumavati
'From a world point of view, <the Crone goddess> Dhumavati stands for despair, sadness, and failure. Yet she has significant and subtle boons to give, especially for someone on the path of awakening. Without passing through Dhumavati's winnowing basket, we remain trapped by our dreams of success and our fear of loss, especially the losses that come with age and sickness. With her grace, we can mine the exquisite wisdom hidden in the heart of life's most difficult moments. Dhumavati is one of the group of ten goddess who incarnate different stages on the path of self-realisation, or states of unfolding consciousness. In the Tantric tradition of the Mahavidyas, Dhumavati represents the void stage which we all must go through on the path of higher awareness.' (Sally Kempton, Awakening Shakti)


Made with Larvikite, Citrine, peach Moonstone, Ametrine, Lavender Amethyst, Howlite and an electroformed raw Amethyst point pendant.

Amethyst: Amethyst dispels fear and anxiety and alleviates sadness and grief. It helps you to adjust to any loss you have suffered, absorbing pain and grief and offering spiritual protection and comfort. It allies you to your spirit guides and helpers. But Amethyst can also open your psychic senses and help you to communicate with a loved one who has moved on when the time is right. Place Amethyst on your third eye to open your inner sight and reach out to the other side. Your guides and helpers will assist if you ask them to.

Howlite: This is an extremely calming stone, linking to spiritual dimensions, opening attunement and preparing the mind to receive wisdom and insights. Howlite formulates ambitions, both spiritual and material, and aids in achieving them, teaching patience and the helping to eliminate rage and uncontrolled anger.

Lavender Amethyst: This particular variety of Amethyst has a particularly high vibration. It stimulates and then calms the throat and heart chakras.

Citrine: Citrine: Carrying the power of the sun, Citrine does not hold negative energy, and never needs cleansing. It dispels anger and cleanses the aura. It energises, increases motivation, and heightens self-esteem, personal power, and creativity. It brings happiness and generosity, promotes inner calm, and balances yin yang energy.

Peach Moonstone:Moonstone is a stone of 'new beginnings'. It is strongly connected to the moon and intuition and, like the moon, is reflective, reminding us that, as the moon waxes and wanes, so everything part of a cycle of change. It is powerful in its ability to calm the emotions. It makes the unconscious conscious, promoting intuition and empathy. It is a great stone to use to encourage lucid dreaming, especially at the full moon, when the power of the moon is at its peak. Peach Moonstone supports the heart as it stimulates the mind, soothing worry or anxiety, and bringing out the best in people. Its loving energy promotes the Divine in all situations, and is an emotional support for intuitive or sensitive children.

Ametrine: Ametrine is a natural combination of Amethyst and Citrine. Ametrine energies are said to stimulate the intellect and rid the aura of negative energy. It is also said to be helpful for releasing negative emotional programming. Ametrine connects the physical realm with higher consciousness, facilitating and and protecting during astral travel. It clears stress ad tension from the head to calm the mind and bring greater focus to meditation.

Larvikite: This is a powerful stone, which teaches patience in striving for your goals, aiding contemplation, meditation and one's connection with the earth.
