Finding your mala match

Helpful InfoElisa EarlyComment
“Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want, and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.” – Albert Einstein

Where do you start? With a color you’re drawn to?  Or based on an intention you’re working on?  Maybe you love a certain gemstone or pattern?  The good news is that there is no wrong answer.  Let your intuition guide you, follow your gut.  And be open.  “The universe has your back.” - Gabrielle Bernstein (grab her book and card set!)


What intention do you want to manifest right now?  Creativity, abundance, grounding, intuition, friendship, opportunities, enlightenment, joy?  Think about what you are working on in your life – personal, professional, spiritual.  What challenges you?  Where do you need extra support or focus?

Our malas are made with semi-precious gemstones, each with unique energies and properties to consider.  Some crystals are better for grounding and centering, like black obsidian and red jasper.  Some help to heighten intuition and connect to a higher level of consciousness, like moonstone and amethyst.  The description for each mala will help you to understand its properties, and you can do more research on each individual gemstone as well.

Close your eyes, visualize the first mala you were drawn to or the mala you can’t get out of your head.  Maybe you don’t remember the specific mala but see if you can recall elements of the piece – color, pattern, style.  Your subconscious will lead you in the right direction. 

What colors give you energy?  Which make you calm, or make you feel uplifted?  Color and texture play a strong role in our visceral reaction.  What do your eyes tell you?

Do you prefer a tassel for its flow, movement, and symbolism?  Or a pendant for its weight and simplicity.

Gemstones are also known to have a link to chakras, which can be a helpful starting point:

-          Root Chakra – red (garnet, smoky quartz, obsidian, red jasper)

-          Sacral Chakra – orange (carnelian, sunstone, amber)

-          Solar Plexus – yellow (citrine, tiger’s eye, rutilated quartz)

-          Heart – pink, green (rose quartz, aventurine, rhodonite)

-          Throat – blue (sodalite, amazonite, blue apatite)

-          3rd eye – indigo (dark amethyst, lapis lazuli, lepidolite)

-          Crown – violet (clear quartz, light amethyst, moonstone)

Happy mala match-making!
