How to Set Your Intention:
When you first receive your crystal(s), one of the most important things to do is to set your intention. To activate or program your crystal(s), sit quietly, holding it (or them) in your hands. Breathe in the highest white light and then visualize your intention for the crystal(s). You can also say your intention aloud. The crystals are listening and ready to carry your intention. And your chosen crystal is now ready to use.

In Tibet, Amethyst is considered sacred to Buddha, possibly due to its ability to activate and balance the 6th Chakra, (Anja Chakra or Third Eye). Amethyst is said to cure impatience, balance high energy, eliminate chaos, promote clarity and help keep the user grounded.
The word 'Mala' means 'Garland'. Mala beads can be made from wooden beads, seeds, semi-precious or precious stones or gems. A full size Mala consists of 108 beads. The number 108 is a sacred, auspicious number in many cultures but particularly in the Hindu tradition. The number comes from multiplying the 12 astrological houses by the 9 planets. Each Mala also has a Guru bead, or tassel to remind us of the teachers in our lives.
Traditionally, the mala is held between the thumb and middle finger and as each bead is passed through the finger and thumb, a mantra or god is said silently, quietly or out loud. The most powerful mantras are said to be those repeated silently in the mind. This is done until the Guru bead is reached (but not counted), the the Mala is reversed and the process goes on until the Guru bead is reached again. Repeating a mantra in this way is an excellent way of calming the mind and keeping thought of 'The Divine' (whatever that is for each one of us, whatever culture, religion or belief we hold) in our everyday lives.
To empower the mala, and the mantra used in association with this mala, japa (mantra meditation) should be practiced once each day for 40 consecutive days. When the mala becomes empowered, it can then be worn to transmit the energy of the mantra and the energetic qualities of the mala to the wearer. If you use a different mantra, the energy of the previous mantra becomes replaced by the new one. For this reason, many people have different malas for different mantras.
When not in use, your mala should be stored in a special, clean and preferably sacred space, for example on a personal altar or on a statue of a deity.
Please note, these malas are handmade and the guru beads hand carved and therefore the carved details may differ slightly to those illustrated here.
