I love woo-woo jewelry! I definitely have a witchy side which I love and over the last few years I’ve been trying to hone in on exactly what that looks like for me. Recently, it’s malas. If you don’t know what a mala is here is a short description:
The Benefits and Uses of Mala Beads. … Traditionally a mala—which means “garland”—has 108 beads strung together and one “guru bead,” which is larger than the rest. The guru bead is used as a place marker for the fingers to feel for the end or the beginning of the necklace for meditation or mantra chanting. — From The Chopra Center
My favorite malas come from Sasha Korellis and her business Satcha Malas. I love them. Here’s how it works: you go to her website here, you order a custom mala, and then you get to talk to Sasha and she makes you a unique necklace that you’ll cherish and feel absolutely magical in.
I use my malas for everyday wear, meditation (when I do it), to rub when I am nervous, and to pass on to friends who need some extra tangible love.
Right now, I’m giving a mala away (giveaway ends tonight) and I can’t wait to share Sasha’s magic with one of you all. All you need to do is comment below with your word of the year for 2019. Can you believe that’s coming up? I can’t either. I’ll share my word tomorrow.
