108 Bead Mala • Lepidolite • EMF Protection + Healing
For the girl who does it all & needs a little extra protection.
WHAT IS A MALA?
More than just beautiful adornment, malas are powerful and symbolic tools for your personal yoga & meditation practice. These strands of 108 beads are traditionally used for reflection and prayer. They combine gemstones imbued with potent energies and sacred meaning to infuse your practice.
There are many theories behind the significance of the number 108, which has long been considered a sacred number in Hinduism. The number 1 stands for God, the universe or your own highest truth; 0 stands for emptiness and humility in spiritual practice; and 8 stands for infinity and timelessness.
How to Use Mala Beads for Meditation
1. Choose a spot and sit comfortably with your spine straight and your eyes closed. Take a few deep breaths to center and align yourself with your intention. 2. If you have one, use a mantra for this practice, chanting aloud or silently. 3. Hold your mala in your right hand, draped between your middle and index fingers. Starting at the top bead, use your thumb to count each smaller bead, pulling it toward you as you recite your mantra. Do this 108 times, traveling around the mala, until you once again reach the top bead. 4. If you want to continue the meditation, instead of passing over the top bead, simply reverse direction and begin again.
Lepidolite is a mica formation that appears most often in a light purple-grey opaque color. It is native to California, Colorado and Brazil. Lepidolite's energy is soft and soothing. Even people who aren't sensitive to stones and crystals can feel the effects of holding or wearing a piece of this gorgeous mineral. It is as though a cloud of calmness surrounds a person when they hold this stone.
Lepidolite is a soothing calming stone that will help you if you are feeling anxious, stressed or depressed. This is an excellent stress relief stone, as it contains lithium. It has a positive vibration that stimulates positive coincidence or synchronicity. Place it under your pillow when you are feeling anxious and you may sleep better.
My favorite part about lepidolite is that it clears electromagnetic pollution, and is especially said to aid in illnesses caused by computer stress. Being on the computer for a huge part of the day, I love wearing this in my stacking set to keep me calm in the midst of irritating wifi signals and stress!
Why we choose gold filled vs. gold plated:
Gold filled features an actual layer of gold pressure-bonded to another metal (in our case, sterling silver!) Gold filled is not to be confused with gold plating as filled literally has 100% more gold than gold plating. Gold filled is much more valuable and tarnish resistant. It does not flake off, rub off or turn colors.
