I love rituals. I love to smudge my house with sage, to light candles, burn incenses and have deities statues in every corner of my lovely home. I love mantras, sacred music, singing bowls and gongs. Everything its carries a good vibe, makes me happy.
Rituals remind me how important is to be connect to my roots, my ancestors. Rituals make me feel connect to the magic of being alive. Rituals give me hope, gratitude, devotion. Devotion to something special and mysterious. There is something very powerful behind.
We can not deny that everything is vibrating and everything around us is affecting us: thoughts, actions, words, sounds, environment, waves, everything has a vibration.
So it couldn't be different for your mala. Your mala carries an unique frequency: your vibration, your intention. More you wear your mala more your mala "becomes" you. And remember, we are not alone. We can not forget that our magnetic field meets others fields and we share our frequency.
Based on that, it is important to cleanse your mala once in a while. Your mala can absorb the vibration around you. Gemstones are very well known for their amazing properties.
So to keep your mala "clean" you can have fun doing some rituals:
Full moon: we can place your mala outside on a white and clean piece of cloth and let your mala to receive the full moon vibration. The ideal is to leave your mala overnight.
Smudging: sometimes I do some smudge on my mala with sage. I have a nice shell where I can place my mala inside and give it a good "smoking time" using a feather. I like to do this rituals on Fridays - following the steps of my gramma who used to participate in shamans ritualsin Brazil on Fridays for cleansing and for blessings.Usually I chant mantras and say positive words - perhaps an intention.
Mantras: words carry a high frequency. Chant for 11 minutes and we can feel something different. You can experience the peace with in. I use mantras to cleanse my malas ALWAYS. I love mantras and their meanings. Please check our Mantras page if you would like to choose one.
Gemstones: you can leave your mala among gemstones. People use different stones to cleanse their malas. Some use clear quartz, others rose quartz, agate and malachite. Please check Gemstone page and choose the stone its speaks to you.
Gong bath: I am LOVE gongs. I have been playing them for awhile and I do believe in the power of their vibration. I always lay my malas around the gong when I am playing it. I do believe that gong's vibration can change and transmute the frequency of the malas. Every single Divine Thread Malas receives a gong bath after been designed.
So choose your ritual and believe in it. Small actions and intentions can change the vibration around you. You are powerful. Connect to your divine and let the vibration of the Universe to flow through you.
