Welcome to MOONday, a sacred was to start your week!
Reclaim Mondays as your own, make Monday your favorite day of the week! MOONdays are all about you! Just as you start each day with self-care, reflection, meditation, intention and flow - start your week the same way. You will find greater ease, more synchronicities and feel better putting yourself first.
Monday gets its name from the Anglo-Saxon word "Mondandaeg" which translates to "The Moon's Day." The second day of the week in Nordic cultures was devoted to worshipping the goddess of the moon, who guides us each month with her cyclical nature.
Unlike a mantra, these are intentions for your overall meditation practice. Start your day and live your life intentionally.
What it means and what to do when your mala beads break.
Malas are a daily meditation tool made of gemstones delicately hand-tied on soft cord and can break down over time.
If you're anything like me, you're going to love your mala to death. I wrap mine around my wrist (not recommended), I take mine in the hot springs and ocean (not recommended) and I fidget with the guru bead (again, not recommended). If you tend to wear your mala down faster than average, I'm here to repair it for you. I want you to live with and love your mala exactly as you would!
A mala is a string of beads used in meditation.
The term ‘mala’ is a Sanskrit word for “meditation garland.” It is a tactile guide to help you count mantras or breaths, a container for your self care time.
Most importantly, a mala is a tool, it is the container in which you make the magic. It is not the magic, your power of focus and intention to change your vibration is.

Gemstones and crystals have healing properties that help to balance the body, mind, and spirit. Both our bodies and healing crystals have energetic vibrations, which makes us naturally receptive to the vibrations of gemstones as they can align our own vibrations with theirs. This is why healing crystals and gemstones have a powerful vibratory effect when placed directly on your body. This energy surges from the crystal to you, which facilitates the free flow of energy throughout the body.
With the popularity of yoga and meditation on the rise, mantra is a word many of us have heard.
But what is it and how do we pick one?!
This article is your guide to finding a mantra for your japa meditation practice and everyday life.
Each stone and crystal requires unique care
Some stones and crystals love water, others must be kept out of the sun. Some need cleansing after each use and others less frequently.
