rudraksha (meaning “the eyes of shiva”) are very precious beads of a divine nature worn and used for puja and meditation for many centuries. they are considered to be very holy and healing. forming naturally from the rudraksha (elaeocarpus) tree, they grow in the wild, and also in sustainable plantations. they are found in the himalayas in india, nepal, malaysia, and southeast asia. it is said that there is an unexplainable positive powerful force manifested in rudraksha. when we wear these beads, we are literally carrying sacks of oxygen, carbon, and hydrogen against our bodies, increasing negative ion levels and soaking up the vibration of pure living organisms, similar to the physical and metaphysical effects of being in nature. this releases chemicals in our bodies responsible for emotional response, uplifting the mood and calming the mind and nervous system, all helping relieve stress, depression, and lethargy. they are cooling to the body and are known to neutralize electromagnetic waves and heal many of the mind and body ailments. they strengthen the heart, reduce stress and dissipate fear, and give confidence in the divine order of things. rudraksha help free the mind of negative thought, increase immunity and energy, rejuvenate, restore clarity, memory, awareness, and peace of mind, and add protection.
turquoise, named for its color, is a beautiful, healing stone of wholeness, often considered a bridge between heaven and earth, as it enhances communication between the physical and spiritual. turquoise lifts your spirit and brings awareness to the heart center, dissipating self sabotage, enhancing self forgiveness, acceptance, and love, releasing regret, and allowing all aspects of one’s self to be loved and integrated into wholeness. it helps you see that self love is the same as kindness and love toward others, releasing inhibition, and encouraging self expression and communication from the wholeness of your being. it is a powerful, regenerating healer for the entire body, as it increases prana, oxygenating the blood. turquoise opens the mind to connect to spirit, enhancing intuition, honoring yourself as a divine being, and bringing into awareness the infinite possibilities of the universe!
carnelian is a stone of happiness. it helps focus the mind and assists in decision making and taking action, assisting in confidence, courage, and power within. it also assists in creative energy, creating emotional balance, and reducing loneliness and depression.
in its deep fire orange color, warm and joyful carnelian activates the first three chakras. it grounds, stabilizes, stimulates, empowers, and is full of life force, sexual, and creative energies. it restores vitality, motivation, and passion, and stimulates sexual passion and creativity. it is a wonderful stone for courage, confidence, and inner power. with its assistance in these aspects, carnelian inspires those who have been generally more passive to break free of fear in order to trust, make decisions, and take action to achieve one’s highest goals and aspirations. carnelian stimulates a love of life, allowing one to move away from destructive situations and release sabotaging and extraneous thoughts in order to move toward happiness, joy, and vitality. with its strong life force energy, carnelian resonates with the physical, assisting in physical pursuits in care of the body temple as well. it helps one break unhealthy habits, purify, sanctify, and increase physical activity, stamina, and endurance. this is an excellent stone for creativity, passion, leadership, courage, protection, and an active zest for life.
agate cleanses the aura, harmonizing the body, mind, and spirit. it strengthens analytical capabilities, helping us to think clearly. it also assists in gaining inspiration from spiritual worlds.
rudraksha stems from hindu mythology and means “the eyes of shiva”. it is said that the god meditated on the welfare of mankind and emerged crying tears of compassion. as the tears hit the earth, they crystallized to form these trees.
rudraksha are considered sacred and should be treated with respect and care. they will naturally become darker with time. this is the desired effect, since the natural (body) oils penetrate into the beads and make them stronger. wear the beads close to the skin.
when not in use, store your mala in a special, clean, and preferably sacred space. keep the mala off the ground and incense or energetically cleanse the mala, especially when not used for a longer time. preferably, don´t wear you mala in the shower or while sleeping.
these beads are truly sacred. treat them with reverence. may they truly bless you and humankind.
