How To Choose Your Mala Beads and Crystal Necklaces
One of the most common questions I receive from my lovely customers at markets or when they are shopping my website, is: "How do I know which piece to choose?"
It's an understandable question, as there are a lot of crystal necklaces, mala beads and bracelets in stock, so it's natural to feel a little overwhelmed when perusing them!
I thought it would be a nice idea to put together a little blog with some tips to help you focus in on the piece of jewellery that's right for you!
Don't try too hard.
Ah, the magic words that seem to sum up all of life's experiences! So much of the time, we tend to get into our heads and that's usually what happens if you are having trouble deciding on your mala beads, bracelets or crystal necklace. When you are focused on reading up on the healing properties of each piece, it can sometimes make it a little more tricky to find the right one.
If this is happening for you, it's best to close your eyes, take a couple deep breaths to center yourself and get out of your head, and settle into your heart. Now, open your eyes and take another look. Is there a piece that your eyes focused on first? That's likely the one that will do the best work for you at this point in your journey!
What are you looking for?
Is it a mala for meditation, to place on your altar, or to wear to remind you of your intentions? Is it a piece to support you energetically during a special event? Is it something you would like for everyday support that's easy to wear?
Narrowing down what you want from your piece will help you to zero in on exactly what you are looking for!
What's going on in your life right now?
If you're going through some changes, or looking to manifest something special (a relationship, a new career, a home, more abundance, etc.), it's a good idea to have a look at the pieces with that intention in your mind.
In fact, a nice ritual to do before you even hop over to the shop is to take a moment to set your intention. Write it down on a piece of paper, or in your journal and read it back to yourself. And then let go of that intention for the time being and do something that feels good! Dance to your favourite song, take a walk, do yoga, anything to get you into your body and feeling amazing. Once you've got those good vibes flowing, head on over to the shop and have a look. It's likely that the piece that's right for you will jump out at you and you'll feel it when it does!
