How to energize your mala
Gemstones tend to each have their own energetic properties, but they also absorb energies as well. This can occur through the many hands it may pass through during the shipping/receiving process and/or through its environment as well. We cleanse all of our gemstone beads before we begin creating with them. A simple fresh water cleanse is typically all that is necessary, but we do take a few additional steps to ensure they are beautifully energized and balanced before their journey to you, their new owner. For instance, we love to cleanse the gemstones, allowing them to dry in the natural sun (for the gems that can have sun) and we also place them outside in a safe environment under a full moon as well.
We typically utilize the power of sound to further energize our mala prayer beads before they leave on their journey to you. We prefer to play beautiful mantras with a harmonium, play recorded mantras such as the Gayatri Mantra or Mahamrityunjaya, and/or the vibrations of our Tibetan and quartz singing bowls by lying the mala next to the bowl as we play.
How to Energize Your Mala
Even though we've taken these steps for balancing your mala, it is still a great idea to energize it for yourself upon its arrival.
Energizing a mala can be a fun and calming process for the new mala owner. There are many variations for energizing a mala. We believe there is no right or wrong way, but instead it is more of a personal experience, a bonding moment for the owner with their new mala prayer beads as intentions or prayers are set.
Some customers enjoy taking their new mala into their home or their meditation space and activating or energizing it through many techniques such as through musical vibrations, incense, candles, etc.
Others like to set intentions with their mala by reciting the specific prayer, chant, mantra, etc., by candlelight, etc.
We feel that there is no right or wrong way to energize, but to consider creating a process or following one that feels right for you can become a beautiful and rewarding process, as your mala can become a special friend on your spiritual journey - one that brings that beautifully positive energy within your soul each time you use it.
Enjoy your special strand of prayer beads in whatever way feels right and special for you and may it bring peace, love and harmony to your journey each and every day.
Wishing you the greatest upliftment on your journey, this day and always. ❤
