Shungite Wrist Mala (irregular tumbled stones)
Shungite Wrist Mala
Our teacher, the Buddha, taught that we should chant mantras. Why? We do not have the fortune to meet or encounter the true Buddha immediately, but we can, and do, encounter mantras. The Buddha said that after his parinirvana, he will appear in the form of letters or words. In order to recite a mantra well and experience all its benefits, one needs an appropriate mala with all the correct characteristics.
Buddhist malas have 108 beads – one hundred for counting the number of recitations, and eight extra beads to make up for the mantras that we may have recited incorrectly.
It is taught that to accomplish siddhis quickly, one should have both a private and a public mala. The private mala should be taken out only when one is doing practice by oneself, and should not be touched by others, except for your teachers when you ask them to bless the mala. The public mala can be used during prayer ceremonies (or pujas) when one is out in public.
The wrist Mala is the perfect solution for times when we wish to recite mantra but may be in a public place .

THE NEUTRALIZER: Grounding, Protection, Digital Detox
Touted as the Miracle Stone of the 21st Century, shungite has been around for an estimated 2 billion years, but it wasn’t until the 1996 Nobel Prize-winning research that discovered antioxidant fullerenes within the stone that people began to wake up to shungite’s healing potential. It is now the go-to stone for electromagnetic field (EMF) protection, purification and detoxification of the body, as well as general healing and emotional well being.
Placing shungite at the base of a computer, microwave or around your various home electronic devices will not interfere with their operations, but will block out some of their free radial output. It’s also used an elixer. Shungite elixers can be made by simply placing the mineral in water, and allowing it a short time to purify. Drinking this purified water is said to have many beneficial qualities such as an increased rate of healing and cell growth, and detoxification of the body. Holding and meditating amplifies the shungite healing properties of headaches, back pain, blood pressure, inflammation and muscle pain. The antioxidants in shungite are forceful impacters on health and a fully functioning immune system. Shungite healing properties are powerful for the spirit as well. It can be used to combat insomnia, boost energy, reduce stress and relieve anxiety.
Recommendation: Wear a Quartz Mala on one wrist and Shungite on the other for generating energy and re-alignment.
