Wear your bliss

Making malas makes me happy.

I have made my own since 2009 and after receiving so many compliments from my friends about them, I decided to start making a few for others.

I had no idea how much it would grow.

Im now making malas and little mandala cards every single day.

This makes me super happy.

Making malas is a meditation practice for me.

I light candles. I chant on every bead. I take my time to patiently make each strand special and unique. Combining stones that enhance each others healing properties to encourage transformation.

As I deepen in my practice I notice that the beauty of each bead shines brighter.

I make mandala cards to accompany each Mala bracelet so regardless of if they are a gift to yourself or to someone in your life, the wearer knows the symbolism of these sacred stones.

Malas have long been known as a source of power.

Each strand of beads is a multiple of 108 not counting the spacer beads.
108 being an auspicious number for many reasons.
Geometrically it is the natural division of a circle 108=36+72=9 X 12

In Hindu tradition 108 is the number of names or paths to God and also symbolic for spiritual completion, oneness or liberation.

    Good Afternoon Rachel,
    I was intrigued by the bracelet you made for Mike and he had told me about how you made if for him and where I could get one myself. I checked out your instagram page, and I am interested in the Peaceful Power one. Would you be able to email an order form so I could place an order?

    Thank you so much

      Hi Lauren! I sell one or a stack of 3! I like to personalize every mala so you can either email me a colour you are drawn to or an ideal you are working with in your life.
      :) hope to hear from you soon!
