Viv’s PURE, a beautiful, colorful and meaningful collection
As I started getting more and more into yoga and meditating, I got interested in mala beads and bracelets. Since I’m already fascinated with and addicted to color, the creation of mala’s was a logical addition to my collections. My colleague Clara taught me how to knot beaded necklaces, and online I found good sites regarding stone characteristics. That way every Viv mala has a little card with the gemstones’ meaning and properties. Clear quartz for example is a “master healer stone”, while chrysocolla can help to ease anxiety.
A mala (meaning garland in Sanskrit) is a set of beads commonly used by Buddhists. Mala’s are used to recite, chant or mentally repeat a specific mantra during meditation. To keep track of the count of the mantras, you use a mala, while touching each bead separately. When you get at the Guru bead (large dangling bead in the middle) you turn the mala around and start counting in the opposite direction. But besides using one for meditation, you can lay it on your yoga mat while you’re practicing or just wear one because they’re gorgeous! I love wearing them to feel better, less anxious, more peaceful, more calm, etc. Depending on what mood I’m in and what I’m gonna do that day. And depending on what colors I feel like wearing, because being colorful is one of my features! 🙂
Since everyone has different tastes and needs, you can order a customized mala if you don’t find anything in the shop. Together we can choose gemstones that suit your desires, the right size beads (the larger the beads, the longer the necklace) and the color of the thread used to knot the mala. Feel free to email me with any questions and enjoy my malas!
