The 'Sacred Balance' Mala

Part of the Chant Essentials collection of simple mala dedicated to your mantra practice.

Indian Lotus Seeds: The lotus flower symbolises spiritual knowledge and power. The lotus grows through the muddy waters, flowering above the surface into its beautiful form, and as the rains fall from above the drops don't stick on the petals but fall back into the water. Meaning that once someone has realisation what falls into the world no longer affects them. This conveys that a spiritual aspirant, while living in the world, should remain unaffected by the worldly attractions and should work towards spiritual unfoldment.

Larvikite:  Larvikite is said to represent both water and earth elements, and is often known as black Moonstone. It is a powerful stone, which teaches patience in striving for your goals, aiding contemplation, meditation and one's connection with the earth. 

Howlite: Howlite is a wonder stone for calming upset states of mind and emotion. Howlite decreases an overly critical state of mind, selfishness, stress, and anxiety, bringing calm and relaxation. It also can decrease anger originating from within or externally.

Snowflake Obsidian: Snowflake Obsidian is a stone of purity used to balance mind, body and spirit. Placed on the sacral chakra, Snowflake Obsidian will calm and soothe and allow you to view unhealthy patterns in your own behaviour, thus opening the door to change. Obsidian draws hidden imbalances to the surface and releases them.
