For this 108 Mala I used 6mm and 8mm White Howlite, brass spacer beads and large Brass Recovery amulet. The mala has been hand-knotted on an extra strong, nylon cord with one knot between each gemstone bead. It not only looks great, it also makes it easy to use it as a tool in your meditation practice.
Mala length: 37" (94cm). Amulet: 3 3/8" (36mm).
Howlite is spiritually a stone of awareness that can prepare you to receive wisdom and understanding from your Higher Self and The Divine. Howlite can also be used to help release things we hold on to, attachments and old emotional pain from this or past lives. Howlite is also a calming stone that helps you deal with upset states of mind and emotions. It can also help you release stress, anxiety, selfishness, anger, ease confrontation and difficult communications and bring you relaxation. It can help you become truly comfortable with yourself and not feel the need to pretend or be anything you are not. Howlite is also used to heighten creativity and expand self-expression. It is connected to the Crown Chakra (connection, life force, higher power).
The Recovery Symbol is an addiction recovery symbol and the three point of the triangle symbolizes Hope, Strength and Willpower. I am in love with the look of this symbol, and I also firmly believe that we can all wear this since we are all recovering from something.
