Sacred Space Malas by Paula Bush
Medium: Semi-Precious Gemstones
Description: Reiki charged crystal malas, bracelets, necklaces and earrings with semi-precious gemstones for healing
My intent is to make healing gemstone Malas and Jewelry, to bring the stone's natural beauty and Earth energy to all who choose to wear them. During a meditaton at a group silent retreat, I began to see large white beads forming around everyone and connecting to form a human Mala. The Mala or garland flowed through the room and out into the universe, a profound vision of Oneness and Unity. Malas began to appear in my meditations and when I closed my eyes, encouraging me to make them. Malas are strung beads traditionally used to count the number or prayers, mantras, breathes or prostrations. A Full Mala is 108 beads, representing the 108 mortal desires of mankind. Half Mala have 54 beads. Each piece is made following meditations, using semi- precious gemstones cleansed in salt water, smudged with White Sage and then charged with Reiki to amplify the inhernet healing qualities of each stone. Namaste.
