It is said that Malachite is a stone of balance, abundance, manifestation and intention. ... An extremely powerful metaphysical stone, Malachite is often called the “stone of transformation” and is used for deep energy cleaning, bringing healing and positive transformation to the wearer and user.
It is said that Lava Stone is a grounding stone that strengthens one's connection to Mother Earth. It gives us strength and courage, allowing us stability through times of change. It provides guidance and understanding in situations where we may need to "bounce back". A calming stone, it is very useful in dissipating anger.
Lava Stone is of then used as a wonderful aromatherapy essential oil diffuser. Simply add a few drops of your favourite essential oil and enjoy. I find teh best way is it mix a few drop in the palm of my hand and then rub the Lavastone in the oil. Not to be used on the Malachite
Each Mala is an individual creation by myself. No two are the same. Some may look alike but, due to the nature of natural stone and wood, each bead is unique thus making your special creation one of a kind.
Mala is usually made of 108 beads and a guru bead. This enhances the practice of japa meditation (also called mantra meditation) by keeping count of the number of times a mantra is chanted. Malas can be made with fewer beads, such as 18, 27 and 54 and 72.
The number of beads in a mala is associated with the aim of japa. A mala with 27 beads is used for attaining spiritual progress, while a mala with 108 beads is used to achieve fulfillment. The number, 108, has spiritual significance as it is believed that 108 energy lines converge to form anahata, the heart chakra.
One way to Meditate with your Mala is to Sit straight, keeping the spine erect. Keep the eyes closed. Hold the mala in the right hand. Let it rest on the second and third fingers. Use the thumb to bring down each bead starting with the Guru bead while chanting your chosen mantra.
Ultimately, the mala becomes what the wearer wants it to be. You fill the energy of the beads and gemstones, with your thoughts, your hopes, and dreams.
