We were recently asked to create a very special custom mala. This mala was made for a beautiful woman who is going through the process of trying to conceive. It was an honor to string this mala, and we look forward to hearing about the journey into motherhood. If you are interested in having a custom mala made for you please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The stones in this mala were very carefully selected. I did a bunch of research, and then I strung the mala 3 times. The stones that wanted to be on this mala were very specific.
I started with the moonstone since that is the most used crystal to support fertility and then the next choice was the garnet triangles. I had no idea that garnets were such sexy stones, but that coupled with their triangle shape made perfect sense. Hematite came in next. It was not an obvious choice, but once I looked into the stone the combination of it being both a protector as well as calming in times of stress and worry seemed to make sense why it wanted to get in the mix. Something was still missing and I added Rose Quartz into the string. That balanced out the flow but the mala still wasn’t finished. Pearls and Black Onyx finished off the mala and brought in compassion and the release of negative energy.
So, not only do they look beautiful together but you have garnets for passion, moonstone for womb power, rose quartz for love, hematite for protection, pearls for self compassion, and onyx for the superpower to take the negative and switch it around into positive. Magic.
Also the black stones are volcanic stones which work great as a diffuser for essential oils. I recommend putting a few drops on the spot in the back that touches your neck. The oils should soak into the stone within a few seconds. I recommend testing it before wearing it with any fabrics that might get stained by the oils. I’ve had great luck with this-but better safe than sorry. Check out the blog post about using the mala with essentials. Using Essential Oils With Your Mala
After I finished the mala I laid it out under the moonlight. The moonlight is said to be particularly powerful with moonstone. It cleanses and activates the crystals. Since this is a tool that you are putting your own powerful intentions into I suggest creating your own cleansing ceremony. There are a few simple quick and easy options outlined here.How to Clean and Activate Your Crystals
Onyx is a powerful protective stone that can shield the mind and body from electromagnetic energy. It absorbs and transforms negative energy, helping to prevent that drain of personal energy. Onyx assists with melancholy, the release of negativity and depression. It helps to calm your fears, leaving you feeling stable and secure.
Rudraksha Seeds are miracle seeds that emit positive vibrations. These seeds have been worn by Sages and Togis since Vedic times for their profound spiritual significance and powerful healing properties. Rudraksha seeds are believed to be endowed with cosmic powers to elevate the soul and assist on the path of ascension. According to the ancient Vedas, Shiva cried tears of compassion for humanity and his tears became Rudraksha seeds to assist humanity in our healing.
Rose Quartz is the stone of unconditional love. It is one of the most important stones for Heart Chakra work, as it opens that heart to all types of love—love of the self, love of family, love of friends and romantic love. The soothing energy of Rose Quartz fosters empathy, reconciliation and forgiveness of others, lowering stress and tension of the heart. It can clear out anger, jealously and resentment towards others, allowing the healing of heart issues caused by holding onto these negative emotions.
Moonstone is believed to be a stone of destiny. It is strongly connected to the moon and the divine feminine, making it a wonderfully helpful stone for women. It is worn to increase fertility and harmonize the mind, providing health and protection. Moonstone helps to align the hormone production, metabolism and reproduction. It allows deep-rooted feelings to energize and come to the forefront.
Hematite is a very protective stone that helps you to stay grounded in any situation. It absorbs negative energy and calms you in times of stress or worry. When you wear Hematite, it helps you feel balanced, calm and centered. This stone helps you to find your own, unique talents, releasing self-imposed limitations.
Garnet is a stone of health and energy that enhances energy, passion and pleasure. It is said that the only light on Noah’s Ark was provided by a Garnet stone. It helps to move the chi and energy flow within the body, stimulating physical activity. Garnet is a good stone to help with depression, as it brings joy and hope to the wearer and helps lessen the anger directed at oneself. It also cleanses the chakras of negative energy, re-energizing them in the process.
Fresh Water Pearls are cultured in inland waters and not in the sea. The oldest Pearl was worn in 4300 BC by a Persian Queen. They are considered the bringers of light, beauty and love. They also help you to become aware and conscious of the problems that we carry around with us. Pearls are linked with innocence and helps us to see life through the eyes of compassion.
