Turquoise is one of the most well balanced stones I know if, combining different elements effortlessly and then, because it always develops around pockets of copper (often infused within the stone itself) is a great conduit of earth and spirit to come together and be spoken into the world. Turquoise helps us be whole, with the universe and the planet and it reminds us that we are all one. Chakra-wise, turquoise directly impacts the throat chakra, to raise our voices to create balance and wholeness in the world.
Each knot is a prayer.
Our hand knotted, Reiki infused malas are designed differently from traditional malas as we eliminate the 'Guru Bead'...not only because you are the only Guru you'll ever need, but also because having a clasp means you can be more flexible with how it's worn, allowing to wrap it around your neck or wrist without risking the integrity of the silk thread. Additionally, chanting with a single strand of 108 beads actually feels better in your hands in a surprising way (it allows your mind to quiet even further by feeling exactly where you are in the count) and makes it simple to change directions to chant more than once if you so choose.
One mantra would be great to use with this mala is 'Om Ham Hum' which makes me giggle just to say (pronounced om hawm hoom).
Om - causes energy to gather and flow upward and outward
Ham - for opening up the throat chakra
Hum - for purposes of this mala, spreads vitality and power through the body.
