women's kundalini shakti seven chakra 54 bead convertible chain mala™ necklace or wrap bracelet, made from garnet handmade chain, grade a garnet, baltic amber, tiger's eye, citrine, malachite, apatite, lapis, amethyst, moonstone, smoky quartz, hematite, and natural pyrite. I am so excited about these new chain malas! I've worked on this design for over a month and now they are finally here with more to come!!! all chains in these malas are handmade and fair trade, and manufactured in India without supporting child labor or underpaid workmanship. I've tested these and they are very easy to use for meditation, and each piece has a detachable section with clasps on both sides (to accommodate both right and left handed wrists) and can be as a necklace or as a wrap bracelet. to wear as a wrap bracelet, just clasp between stones to accommodate your size, tuck any remaining chain under the mala and you'll have a wrap bracelet that won't come undone during asana practice. this particular mala's detachable section can also be worn as a bracelet separately and fits a 6.5" - 7.25" wrist. extremely versatile mala. enjoy and I hope you love them as much as I do!!!
3.5mm-8mm stones. 54 mala prayer beads not including attachment. due to the handmade nature of these chains, necklace length varies from 23"-25" inches. PLEASE NOTE: if you would like a different chain with this design or would like a 108 count mala instead of 54, please convo me and I will be happy to see what's available in stock :). this design originally listed and trademarked 12/15/2018.
the chakras are each of the centers of energetic power in the human body. there are seven main chakras described in the tantric scriptures. each chakra represents specific vibrations and frequencies with progressively higher states of consciousness and growth.
muladhara chakra / root chakra: relates to instinct, security, basic human potential, governs sexuality, mental stability, sensuality, and our sense of security. i have chosen garnet as it is a stone of faith, devotion, stability, and trust, and balances the emotions. it soothes emotional stress, anger, encourages an inner strength and personal power, increases success, a positive attitude, and sparks the energies of creativity. it is known in indian mythology for persistence, stamina, and energizing the fire of kundalini, which is the eternal force that activates the chakras and begins the path to awakening and enlightenment. i have also been using smoky quartz in my chakra pieces for nearly ten years now, as i love that it lends a kind of smoky edge to chakra pieces while serving as a wonderful stone for linking the root and crown chakras.
svadisthana chakra / sacral chakra: relates to relationships, addictions, basic emotional needs, pleasure, and governs reproduction, creativity, joy, and enthusiasm. here, i've chosen baltic amber as it is a protective and calming stone, can absorb negative energy, has been used to help the body to heal itself, and supports a sunny disposition, happiness, courage, good luck, and manifestation.
manipura chakra / solar plexus chakra: focal point for our power and will, our sense of empowerment, self control, and discipline. relates to our personal power, fear, anxiety, opinion, introversion, transition, and governs digestion and all matters of growth. citrine is associated with the planet jupiter, which is the planet of good luck and good fortune. it is a stone of success, manifestation, generosity, personal empowerment, protection. it is considered beneficial for spiritual growth, meditation, and ailments associated with the center of the body and the solar plexus chakra. tiger's eye is also a stone of protection, integrity, and empowerment of the solar plexus chakra. it promotes the correct use of power, grounding, stability, and prosperity. tiger’s eye is a stone of protection that is grounding and enhances integrity, willpower, practicality and correct use of power. it is a stone of good luck, and brings prosperity, often in the form of money. it is well known as a very protective stone especially during travel, and can also help one see clearly without illusion. it brings a special boost to the solar plexus chakra and to one’s personal power.
anahata chakra / heart chakra: relates to complex emotions, compassion, tenderness, unconditional love, equilibrium, and well-being. malachite is a stone of positive transformation that supports change with ease, spiritual growth, prosperity, concentration, meditation, balancing the emotions, relieving stress and anxiety, and balancing all chakras, especially the heart chakra.
vishuddha chakra / throat chakra: relates to communication, growth through expression, and governs independence, fluent thought, and a sense of security. lapis lazuli is known as a stone of total awareness that provides activation and energizing of the throat and third eye chakras, enhances intuition, provides objectivity, clarity, mental endurance, supports manifestation, communication, mental strength, wisdom, and spiritual love. apatite is said to enhance one's insight, learning abilities and imagination, and to give increased self-confidence. it also is said to help achieve deeper states of meditation, and helps to restore clear thoughts. continued use of apatite is believed to produce a spiritual state of unconditional love. it creates a willingness to let go of useless aspects of life, people and objects, and it enhances intuition and creativity. it is very useful when one is having difficulty letting go of someone or something that is no longer good or no longer has a place in one's life. associated with vishuddha chakra, it facilitates public speaking, enhances group communication, and opens the throat chakra.
ajna chakra / third eye chakra: relates to balancing the higher and lower selves, trusting inner guidance, and is associated with the access of intuition and clarity. amethyst is a stone of spirituality and contentment, meditation, peace, and balances the energies of the intellectual, emotional, and physical bodies. it opens and activates the third eye and crown chakras, enhances serenity, spiritual insights, stability, inner strength, and common sense. labradorite brings forth each person's strengths, has a very calming effect, and opens energy flow to the solar plexus and third eye chakras, or whatever energy centers are most in need. at the brow chakra, it encourages deep insight and focused intuition.
sahasrara chakra / crown chakra: the chakra of pure consciousness. relates to inner wisdom and deals with the release of karma, meditation, unity, and transcendence. moonstone is associated with the heart and crown chakras. it can help calm responses and avoid overreaction, relieve emotional stress, enhance feminine energies, sensitivity, intuition, and psychic abilities. it is a stone of protection, especially during childbirth, pregnancy, and travel. it is a stone of abundance and is also associated with love of all kinds. physically, it is said to aid the pituitary gland and digestive system, obesity, water retention, hormonal problems, and menstrual problems. smoky quartz is a grounding stone that is associated with the root chakra and is believed to be powerfully opening to the crown chakra. it is said to induce alpha/deep meditation and stimulate the body to resonate at the highest healing frequency. it supports release of negative emotions, while transforming them into positive ones, deep relaxation, unconditional love, protection, prosperity, and good luck, and establishes the most gentle and loving connection with the body.
