You will rarely see Aviva without her prayer beads and Mala necklaces. She collects from all over the world. There is much symbolism around the Mala necklace. We love them because they are simple, prayerful, and a gentle reminder to be mindful and intentional.
There are 108 beads on one strand as well one “guru” bead. It is said that the number “One” stands for God, the Universe or your own highest truth. The “Zero” stands for emptiness and humility in spiritual practice and the “Eight” stands for infinity and timelessness. Ultimately, the Mala necklace is whatever the wearer wants it to be. It is a gentle reminder to us to set aside energy toward hope, dreams, and calm. Our new collection of necklaces are offered in 7 types of crystals designed with Rudraksha beads. Rudraksha beads are seeds from a special every green tree found in in the foothills of the Himalayas. It has always been associated with and used by Yogi's, Saints, Sages and Mystics across Asia for balancing the mind, emotions and creating the right environment for meditation and peaceful actions to bring about the desired goals in life. Rudraksha seeds are known to assist in meditation, stress relief, healing the body and promoting positive changes. Wearing them will help one to carry an aura of self-assurance in all situations, removing nervousness, stress, and depression. Paired with the crystal detail, it’s basically a secret weapon that is pretty which packs a pretty mean “Boom Boom Pow”. We welcome you to stack them for extra flair and super powers.
Labradorite protects from negativity and is the stone of transformation, it is a useful companion through change, imparting strength and perseverance. It balances and protects. It is excellent for strengthening intuition and powerful in revealing the truth behind illusions, Labradorite banishes fears and insecurities, and strengthens faith in the self and trust in the universe. This material has a lot of "firey" details inside where the light catches in mysterious, magical ways. We like to think of it as a "Warrior" stone, as it reminds us all of the fire we have inside of each of us to never give up.
