For the Lazy Yogi March giveaway, I will be offering a green opal and rosewood wrist mala. Click here for more pictures.
I was informed that this wrist mala is the best selling product on the Japa Mala Beads site—and I can see why. Each opal bead has its own unique marble-esque pattern comprised of earthy greens and wooded browns. If this mala were a place, it would be a lush dark forest.
As it is winter here in the North Eastern US, this mala feels like the promise of spring and summer. Something about it reminds me of dwelling in nature without the harsh bite of cold winds and frost hardened ground. And while I love having this mala around, I’m excited to send it off to a new owner.
The description on theJapa Mala Beads sitereads:
“Green Opal is a healing and rejuvenating gemstone that is known to strengthen the immune system, aid relationships, and soothe emotions.
Rosewood (Red Sandalwood) is used to call upon Ganesha “the remover of obstacles” as well as the Divine Mother. Rosewood also is warming, improves circulation and protects one from negative energy.”
Wearing wrist malas are a wonderful way of remembering to be mindful as we go about our day. The touch of the beads on our skin is a helpful wakeup call to get out of our head and into the moment.
To enter the contest:
Reblog this post as many times as you would like between now and the end of the month. A winner will be picked at random on April 1st (No fooling, I promise!).
Namaste and good luck!
I’ll be picking the winner tonight and then posting the April Mala Giveaway tomorrow. So if you are not chosen, don’t despair! I’ve got a really cool giveaway for April, since it’s my birthday month :P
