Ganesh Mala with Rudraksha & Lotus Seed
Ganesh Mala with Rudraksha & Lotus Seed
Riverstone: Energizing and accelerating, this is the stone for those ready for swift change rather than a longer drawn out process because of it’s energy moving and purifying capacity. A great healer because of this. A stone of luck, talent and abilities, Riverstone is supportive when you are ready to get on with that vision you’ve been gestating or creative talents you’ve hidden away as it supports your will to shift.
Rudraksha: Described as the bliss tears of Sadashiva (Supreme Being) that rolled from Sadashivas cheeks from the state of total bliss of Samadhi and fell to the earth. They are a direct link to the bliss dimension and a powerful generator and battery of cosmic energy. They are protective and charged! Spiritual seekers have worn Rudraksha for millennia due to its cosmic energy giving qualities in support of their awakening and enlightenment. The most common is the 5 face mukhi - considered to be beneficial for your health, calming, peaceful and helping the wearer to gain control over human instincts like lust, anger, greed, ego etc…
White Lotus Seed: According to Hinduism, the lotus, particularly the white lotus, is associated with beauty, fertility, prosperity, spirituality and eternity. Many Hindu Gods are connected to the lotus flower. Wearing lotus seeds translates the symbolism of the lotus flower in our daily life. They are a reminder to maintain your peace and purity through all obstacles and distractions throughout your day and spiritual journey.
Sandalwood: Most often used in the Buddhist tradition, sandalwood is highly supportive to a meditation practice as they are instill peace and calm, evoke awareness, sensuality and tranquility.
Ganesh Pendant: Ganesha resides over the root chakra, the Muladhara at the base of our spine, representing stability, security, survival. As Yogi’s, this is directly related to our ability to connect with our body, breath and earth. To establish a foundation within ourselves in which to begin new things. Ganesha clears these obstacles and blesses our beginnings as we become more stable and integrated in our practice, breath and body through self love, self nourishment and inner listening. Ganesha is also considered to be the Lord of Letters, connected to wisdom and knowledge. The Sanskrit translation for knowledge is Buddhi and closely connected to Lord Ganesha in the Puranic period. Another fascinating connection is his connection to AUM in that he personifies the primal sound and to me, Ganesha’s connection to the Muladhara chakra makes perfect sense as Mula is translated as original / main. The muladhara chakra is where manifestation and expansion of the divine life force rests. He supports and guides all other chakras.
Construction, Size and Fitting:
Meticulously hand knotted with Love. Once you experience the feel of a hand knotted piece, you never go back. Assembled with 108 beads of 8mm & 6mm with brass embellishments. This mala measures approx: 18” from bottom of cluster pendant to the top end.
Details & Packaging: All Mikala Jewelry comes wrapped in a lovely reclaimed Sari drawstring pouch, created through a project supporting women and children in India, while also minimizing our impact on the earth through unnecessary packaging. All gold embellishments (unless otherwise noted above) are 24k gold filled or plated over 98% pure silver, handmade and shipped directly a woman’s tribe in Thailand.
Care of your Jewelry: Like all fine jewelry, these pieces are not meant to be worn to bed or in water (shower/pool/lake) as this will place stress on the threads and metals used. I stand by my creations, so provided care is taken by you, I will always accommodate, should something unexpected arise. To energy cleanse your mala, leave in a sunny spot for an hour or overnight under the full moon. Crystal bowl cleansing is also wonderful, using sacred sound to cleanse and charge! You will know your mala needs a refresh of energy because it will not look as radiant as it can. The more love you give to the crystals and the wisdom they offer, the more they radiate and shower upon you.
