    Affirmation: I embrace my shadows and welcome them into the light

    Mantra: Om Mani Padme Hum

    Inspiration for this mala:

    Making the commitment to grow takes immense courage and often the most profound experiences are born out of confronting the darker sides of our consciousness.

    Negative and intrusive thoughts create a tremendous amount of suffering in our lives. Contemplative practices reveal the nature of thought to be nothing more than an illusion created within the mind. When thoughts inevitably arise during meditation, we are taught to turn our attention to the thought itself. Where is the thought? Can you see or touch it? These practices provide a window into the nature of consciousness. When we cast light onto the shadows of ourselves, we are able to break free from our mental shackles and eliminate unnecessary suffering.

    Howlite is a unique stone believed to make a direct connection from the root chakra to the crown chakra, keeping you grounded while getting in touch with your spiritual nature. Labradorite is considered a deeply spiritual stone and is used for spiritual healing and protection against negative energy. Snowflake obsidian is used to dissolve trauma and fear while observing dark and uncomfortable sides of consciousness. The pattern on snowflake obsidian is believed to reveal patterns in our thoughts and behaviors.

Personalized Service Like No Other Business

These are the REAL deal! They arrived on time and in perfect condition. The box was a nice touch, it really showed that they care about their products to make sure you get a nice presentation when receiving their mala's. It gives off an excellent first impression from all those who including myself (I am not prone toward wearing costume pieces). Comes complete with box for storage, personalized service like no other company provides these days.

The Howlite .... Just WOW!

Wow! These are so worth the money. The beads are gorgeous and the howlite is real white--I can't believe how amazing it feels in my hands when I hold them, like the perfect weight. Nothing but strength from these beautiful malas that will last forever because they're made out of natural materials rather than metal or plastic,like I got from another shop.

Thank you for sharing your experience with our mala, James. I'm so glad to hear that you are pleased with the purchase and find it helpful in your practice!
We hope you enjoy wearing/using your mala as much as we enjoyed making them for you!

Thank you Jess for your kind words and for sharing your experience with our malas. It is such a blessing to hear that they are adding peace and joy into your life!

We're so happy to know that our malas have helped change lives as well, especially yours. Your story has made us realize we should be more vocal about the ways in which these beads can help people find inner peace, strength, or happiness when they need it most--and we'll do just that. Thank you again for taking the time to share this with us!

FAQ

Yes! Like each of us, we will have flaws and never find another like us, your mala is the same…. and that’s a good thing. Our mala beads are natural and will have slight size and color variations from bead to bead, this is normal and adds character to each and every mala.We only use ethically sourced high-quality natural, never dyed, or treated semi-precious gemstones in our malas. Many of the less expensive malas you will find are using dyed or treated lower-quality beads in their malas to save on costs and make the gemstones look identical in shape and color. These may look better initially due to consistent bead color but over time the dyes and colors will leach the chemicals and fade from the gemstones.

Absolutely!

Our malas are much more to us than just a product that can be manufactured by a machine. A mala made by us is always handmade following traditional mala-making methods. Every mala bead is strung and as each individual knot is tied locking the mala bead in place while a mantra is recited to bring love and goodwill to the new owner. This takes more time, and we are not able to make them at the same cost of a machine, we know that a Mala of Merit means more the moment you put it on and feel our love and energy that comes with it that no machine made mala can replicate.

Every part of your mala was selected not based on cost but by the impact on the environment and lives of those who helped make it in mind first and foremost. Our mala parts are sourced from multiple locations around the world. With each partner we work with that provides parts of the mala we have done everything within our power to ensure that all parts of your mala came from a reputable manufacturer that meets our high standards of ethics.

Note-With gemstones unfortunately we are not able to trace them back all the way to the mines and verify this….we spent hours trying, and to be honest almost anyone who says they have may be stretching the truth, it’s just not possible as beads will come from separate mines around the world.

Absolutely!!! The moment you partner with us and purchase a Mala of Merit, you begin helping others. We utilize the "Shop for Good" application. It automatically donates a portion from your purchase made on our store directly to the “Shop for Good” app the moment you pay.

We have elected to donate all proceeds to The Tibet Fund which is a 301c Non-Profit. If you would like to learn more about The Tibet Fund, click HERE.

We are a small company and as we grow with your help the donation will assist in providing Tibetan communities with solutions to poverty, hunger, education, cultural preservation, and other basic needs.

Good job, look at you helping others!
