Japa Mala Bead Giveaway!
I can get quite busy and stressed some days and completely forget to take time to reflect on all that I am grateful for. Mala beads are a string of beads traditionally used in meditation; and they serve as a beautiful reminder of our intentions. I have a gorgeous handmade mala necklace made of larimar and moonstone from Japa mala beads. I wear it to remind myself to slow down and take in all that I appreciate in my life.
Larimar brings peace and calm and is known for it’s ability to cultivate gratitude. By easing the feeling of needing to be in control of every little thing, it helps ground me in the present moment with peace and gratefulness. Moonstone is said to bring good luck and grants wishes. Moonstone is also good for soothing and balancing emotions. When I’m feeling overwhelmed (which is often these days with three kids four years and under!), I rub my fingers over the beads and take deep full breaths. There are also times I hold my beads while meditating and count them and my blessings one by one.
In honor of the holidays and finding time to cultivate an attitude of gratitude, I’ve partnered with Japa Mala beads to give away one Larimar and Moonstone Full Mala!
