Cleansing your Mala Beads

When is it time to cleanse my mala beads?

There is no right or wrong time to cleanse your mala, it’s all about following your intuition. If you feel your mala hasn’t been sending the right vibrations, or is misaligned with your intentions, it’s probably time to cleanse your beads. As you wear your mala beads they can pick up different vibrational frequencies given off by those you spend your time with, from how you personally have dealt with a situation + from the environment that you are in. If you feel that your mala isn’t giving you the positive energy that you need, it might be a sign that it is time to cleanse your mala beads and realign them with the proper intention in mind.

How-To-Cleanse-Your-Mala-Beads-Tiny-Devotions

How do I cleanse my mala beads?

Here are a few of our favorite ways to cleanse mala beads of their vibrational energy:

  • Place them under the sunlight or moonlight. This will help to recharge them and release any of the unwanted vibrations (don’t leave them too long – to avoid fading only place them in the light for a couple of hours). Leaving them in the sunlight/moonlight can also help to kick up their energetic qualities. Some say that to lay them out under the full moon can help to give a more natural, long lasting recharge.
  • Burning sage in the presence of your mala will also help to cleanse out any energies that don’t serve you.
  • Surround your mala with some of your favorite gemstones and allow them to give off their energy to your mala.
  • Chanting or other sound vibrations can also help to release negative energy.
  • Rinse your Mala in a bowl of warm water with a touch of sea salt.
  • Cleanse your Mala Beads in the ocean if you’re lucky enough to have the sea by your side! Our friend Natalie MacNeil shows us her favorite way of doing this here:

What’s next? Resetting your intentions:

After cleansing your mala, it’s time to reset its intention. It might be the same intention as before, or it may be a completely new one. Be sure to focus your energy into the mala of what it is you are trying to manifest. Do you need some more calm + relaxation in your life? Do you need guidance on your journey of motherhood? Are you looking to add more love + light into your relationships? Whatever it is you are trying to manifest, be clear with your intentions.

Happy cleansing + happy manifesting!

How to use your Mala in a Yoga Practice

How-To-use-Mala-Japa-Meditation-Yoga

  1. Grounding:
    Inhale, exhale… Grab your mat, blankets, bolster and blocks. Find a comfortable seated position with a straight spine rooting yourself into the mat. Gently close your eyes or soften your gaze allowing yourself to dive inwards.
  2. Choose Your Mantra:
    Take a moment to choose your mantra to guide you through your meditative practice. What brought you to your mat today? What intention did you set this morning when you awoke? What emotion does your mala evoke within you? Your intention is personal to you- it can be a thought, a word, a sentence or song. Once you have chosen your mantra chant it aloud or silently.
  3. Japa Meditation:
    Hold your Mala Beads in your right hand allowing it to drape between the thumb and middle finger. Starting at the Guru Bead or the sacred stone- gently roll each bead while repeating your mantra. Repeat this 108 times, or until you are back at the sacred stone.
  4. Yoga Practice:
    Place your Mala beads at the top of your yoga mat. Allow your mantra and intention to flow through you guiding you through your asanas. If you feel yourself getting lost in the physical practice, use the intention you set with your Mala Beads to bring yourself back to the present.
  5. Savasana:
    Finish your yoga practice on your mat with a juicy savasana. You may choose to end with another round of Japa Meditation bringing your practice full circle.

Manifest with the Full Moon

DIYCrystalGrid

Crystal grids are an arrangement of gemstones + crystals that are placed with intention to bring forth a desired energy. Start your Crystal Grid with cleansed crystals to ensure they’re fully energized and vibrating high.

The Full Moon brings upon a perfect time to charge your crystals with lunar energy. Place your crystals in a bowl and leave them under the moonlight. In the morning, your crystals will be fully cleansed and ready for intention setting.

Now it’s time to charge your crystals! We love infusing them with a specific, desired intention. Hold your gem between your palms, open your heart and raise your voice. Share your intentions with the world. When we feel supported, we feel empowered, confident and radiant.

Think about which Chakra the gemstones you are using will compliment. Each gem is believed to emit its own special vibration and healing energy. When worn near the Chakras, the energy centers of the body, this further inspires manifestation + intention setting. For example, Rose Quartz inspires unconditional love of all types. Amethyst vibrates peace + calm, while Clear Quartz is said to provide clarity and focus. Whatever you end up choosing, make sure they assist in your big picture goal.

The arrangement of your gemstones also counts! Placing gemstones pointed inward is said to attract inward energy, while the opposite is said to draw those energies out.

This mindful meditation practice is a fun, relaxing way to boost your mood and help you manifest your greatest desires.
