All AiliA Malas are created with love and meditation, then cleared and charged with the special meditation I use with all AiliA Creations. All the materials have been hand selected for their energetic qualities and visual beauty with the intention of bringing you some happiness and assisting you on your spiritual path of evolution and awakening. As we each work to achieve our own growth and evolution, we are supporting each other as a global community of awakening Souls in the larger process of Human Evolution. Thank you for participating in this Awakening Journey!
Care of your AiliA Mala
Your mala is precious. Bathing, swimming, showering or participating in vigorous activity (including exercising or doing yoga asana) with your mala will bring extra strain on the elastic, wire or knotting in your mala and may lead to damage or breakage, particularly if you like to wear your mala as a bracelet. Keep in mind that frequent stretching is a normal cause of wear on the material holding your mala beads and will weaken the elastic or cord over time. Yogis and Buddhists, who are frequent users of malas, understand and accept that there is a natural lifespan to a mala. And that this lifespan represents the normal cycles of life and changes in our energetic requirements. In these traditions, when a well loved and well used mala breaks, it is taken as a sign that the mala has done it’s work for you and it is time for a new mala with a new energy. In eastern cultures it is common for the beads to be honored and thanked through a ceremony and buried to return them to the earth to be taken back into the natural cycles of energy.
Regular clearing and cleansing of your mala is recommended, as beads will accumulate energy over time. In general, all malas can be safely cleared and recharged by placing them outside under the full moon or on a large piece of selenite. Personalized instructions for clearing and recharging the specific stones in your AiliA Mala can be found below.
You may also clear your mala with intention by holding it between your palms while you meditate on loving thoughts, imagining that your mala beads are being infused with loving energy and that any low frequency energies are being transmuted and released into the ground for earth healing. Do this for 10-20 minutes, or until you feel that this process is complete. Finish your cleansing ritual by thank your mala stones, or holding gratitude in your heart, for the assistance that they are bringing you in your life and practice.
*If your mala breaks I am happy to restring it for you at no cost (excluding shipping) within the first 30 days of purchase. For Premium Malas, like this one, I will waive the usual after-30-day restringing cost once. Afterwards I am happy to restring your mala for a flat fee based on the type of mala you have purchased and the amount of time it takes me to restring it and recreate the tassel.
Specific instructions for Clearing your Personal AiliA Mala
Your Cherry Quartz AiliA Mala can be cleansed in running water. Be sure to protect the tassel from water and dry the silver thoroughly and keep out of heat until entirely dry, as moisture and heat will cause tarnishing. Recharge your mala in a bowl of hematite. Prolonged exposure to direct natural sunlight will fade the color in the cherry quartz (the same is true with amethyst).
