I designed this mala to help with calming the spirit while you meditate. When we sit, we try to create a mental and emotional safe space where anything we experience is okay. This mala is made to help with that process.
Agate is gemstone that for centuries has been regarded as a protection stone. It can help the wearer acknowledge and accept her or his feelings, while providing the strength to persist through tough situations. The banded agate in this mala is natural, with colors ranging from translucent gray to gunmetal to milky off-white.
The guru bead is a polished black onyx stone. Onyx is known for protecting you against negativity while fostering a feeling of rejuvenation. It helps you release attachments to negative things, people, and habits. It is a calming, grounding stone.
I hand-knotted this mala on high-grade nylon cord for durability and a beautiful drape. I made the tassel with 100% black cotton embroidery thread.
Use this mala in mediation, for chanting, as an adornment to your shrine, or in any way that enhances the safe space you create in your spiritual life.
