On a personal note, there is no WRONG way to make or wear Mala. There is a traditional way, and YOUR way. When I first started wearing Mala, I wore it because I thought it was beautiful. As time went on, I started to believe that the beads were very powerful and were able to capture positive energy. I would wear my Mala when I needed to borrow those positive vibes and make sure to wear them again during happy experiences so I could charge them back up again. Over time, I started to mediate and use mantras with my Mala. You, of course, can take my original stance and tell me I'm a hippie witch and wear your Mala because you think they are cool and pretty. Remember, there is no wrong way to wear or make Mala.
You do you!
Always Been a Storm...
This "page" is on the site. It has its own presence and lives there permanently, but I think it is important for customers to know why something started; to know how a company grows and changes. In just a few short months, this company has already grown and changed. It has already had a name change, it already has started to move from a workshop based service to an online, boho shop. I am always changing. I am always growing. That is just who I am. I can't change that. Take it or leave it.Read more
I started on the guru bead and set my intention, which in this case was to just relax, catch my breath, and calm down. I moved my fingers along the beads. For each bead I touched, I took a breath in through my nose and out through my nose.Read more
Today was a Gift.
Everything was put back in its correct. I put on my favorite Fleetwood Mac album, and organized toys until I couldn’t see straight. I cleaned both coffee machines with vinegar for an hour and it was glorious.Read more
This Mala will not be symmetrical, it will not “match,” it will not have a pattern, but I guarantee it will be the most beautiful.Read more
Stop Me if You've Heard this One!
Long story short, I called this new, amazing yoga practice I found, “Boujee Yoga.” It was super pricey. Everyone wore basically no clothes, but the clothes they did wear were astronomically expensive. The yoga mats were all brand name. We all walked in dry and walked out like we had jumped in a pool fully clothed, buzzing with some kind of electric energy of amazingness that I can only now attribute to some cocktail of burned brain cells and dehydration...and I freaking loved every single second of all of it. I bought in. I drank all the Kool-Aid.Read more
Dude, It's the Sun!
Olive, my daughter, you'll hear a lot about her on this blog, she LOVES the moon. She and my father just adore it. They look at it, talk about it, explore it with binoculars, search for it in the night sky...I'll remind you she is 2 years old. One morning she ran into our room asking, "Where the moon go, Mama?" My husband, being drowsy, said, "It's asleep." Me, not being one to sugarcoat things, said, "You can't see the moon during the day. It's always in the sky, the sun just shines brighter." P.S. folks - I used to teach second grade.
