For this long 108 Mala I used 8mm Purple Aventurine, Pink Moonstone, Feldspar and copper Feather 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: 40" (101,5cm). Feather length: 2 1/2" (60mm).
Aventurine is the stone of luck and chance. It is a gentle stone energetically that gives a sense of calm and balance and enhances happiness. It also helps one to see alternatives and potentials in all situations, giving a positive outlook, courage and inner strength. It is connected to the Heart Chakra (love, acceptance, forgiveness).
Moonstone help calm responses, stress and avoid overreaction. It brings hope, enhances feminine energies, sensitivity, intuition and psychic abilities. It is connected to the Crown Chakra (connection, life force, higher power) and the Third Eye Chakra (intuition, knowledge, divine wisdom), and sometimes the Heart Chakra (love, acceptance, forgiveness).
Feldspar helps you in honoring yourself as a woman, honoring your sexuality and ability to create new life. Feldspar increases your self-respect, self-esteem and self-awareness. Feldspar is often associated with life’s changes and are beneficial if you have difficulty coping. It can help you see things in a more positive light. It is connected to the Solar Plexus Chakra (personal power, confidence, respect for self and others) and the Heart Chakra (love, acceptance, forgiveness).
The Feather is a symbol of spiritual evolution, connection to a higher plane and communication with spirit. It also represent the power of the thunder gods, along with the power of air and wind.
