About The Healing and Meditative Powers of Mandalas
This mala is inspired by the state of balance and inner peace found through meditation. A mandala is the sacred guru. The mandala is a spiritual symbol representing the universe and cosmos. Mandala literally means ‘circle’ and represents the connection of all things in the universe. This particular mandala has an OM in its center, which is the seed sound of the universe. Mandalas are used to focus attention, for establishing a sacred space and as an aid to meditation through single pointed awareness. Significantly, the mandala matches the energy of aquamarine beautifully. Aquamarine is a gemstone for restoring calm and inner stillness. Finally, this mala is excellent for opening the throat chakra.

Recharge the energy of this mala at night by the sea or near a body of running water. Importantly, do not submerge the gemstones in water, just allow them to sit near the energy of moving water. The ocean side is an ideal place to recharge aquamarine mala beads.

About the Mala Design
This is part of the Spring 2018 collection. I selected this gorgeous mandala pendant for its high quality sterling silver and intricate craftsmanship. Within it, we find a delicate OM representing the universe. Aquamarine works perfectly with is mandala as a calming focal point. The color of this aquamarine is superb and a beautiful consistent and clean blue. Significantly, this aquamarine is charged on Salt Spring Island, which is surrounded by the ocean, and sits near the Pacific Ocean in the Strait of Georgia. In addition, this mala is an expression of peace both symbolically and energetically. Finally, I used fine sterling silver from Tibet to add a layer of antiquity to the design.
