The 'Balance' Mala

This mala has been created to aid your search for balance in all aspects of your life. The Yin Yang pendant is handmade in Peru by a fair-trade community business. It is made using the Raku technique of ceramic arts, meaning that no two pendants are ever the same. The Yin Yang symbol serves as a reminder to you to always come back to the place in yourself in which you find your balance, and to honour both aspects of your being: the yin and the yang, the masculine and the feminine.

Howlite bead above the pendant: 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.

Clear Quartz: Clear Quartz is the most powerful healing and energy amplifier. It absorbs, stores, releases, and regulates energy and is excellent for unblocking it. This stone works at a vibrational level, attuning itself to the specific energy requirements of the person needing healing. It takes the energy to the most perfect state possible, cleansing and enhancing the organs and subtle bodies to act as a deep soul cleanser.

Amazonite: Amazonite empowers one to search the self and discover one’s own truths and integrity, and to move beyond fear of judgment or confrontation with others to live in alignment with those beliefs and values. It provides the freedom to express one’s thoughts and feelings, and to set strong and clear boundaries, both internally as self-discipline, and externally on what one is willing to experience or in defining personal space.

Rose Quartz marker beads and beads above the pendant: Rose Quartz aligns the heart chakra and encourages unconditional love of yourself, empathy and compassion for others and harnessing your creativity to live a life you love. The Rose Quartz used in this piece is Madagascan Rose Quartz, a form of this crystal which comes from the Malagasy mine. This is said to be a particularly high vibration form of this stone.

Rudraksha Seeds: The bead of Rudraksha has Ayurvedic qualities and its bark leaves and outer shell of the beads all are used to cure various ailments like mental disorders, headache, fever, skin diseases, and also to heal the wounds. Wearing and worshipping Rudraksha is beneficial to the nervous system, it controls blood pressure, paves towards mental stability, removal of stress and helps one to retain healthy body.

Labradorite: Labradorite calms an overactive mind and energises the imagination, bringing in new ideas. It is a wonderful tool for returning joy and spontaneity back to one’s life. It helps eliminate the emotional drain of daily routine or being weighed down by responsibility, and awakens a sense of adventure and change. Labradorite is a powerful protector of the aura, preventing energy leakage, and others from tapping into and draining your personal energy.

These beads are all strung with sustainably-sourced fragrant Sandalwood on a turquoise nylon cord.
