Overwhelmed with negative thoughts and anxiety? Dark Amethyst is both brilliant to wear when you need the spiritual energy that emanates from this healing crystal -- and protective against negative thought patterns.
Amethyst is used by Crystal Reiki Practitioners to enhance the immune system, improve the endocrine system, reduce headaches and regulate hormones.
Japa Mala is typically made from 108 beads and one larger or differently shaped additional bead called a Sumeru or Guru Bead. Begin the prayer round with the Sumeru and end when it is reached again. The following round should begin with the same bead upon which the previous round ended. The mala should be held in the right hand with the middle finger and thumb, never with the index finger which is considered inauspicious. With each bead, one repeats the prayer or mantra. According to some traditions, 108 represents the number of mortal desires of mankind that one must overcome.
Wrap a flexible necklace four or five times around the right wrist to wear as a bracelet. The mala should be held in the right hand with the middle finger and thumb, never with the index finger which is considered inauspicious.
