Citrine is a very powerful, energetic and cleansing crystal which attracts and gives abundance and success to those that ask for it.
Citrine is a huge energy booster. Great for getting up in the mornings, full of energy!
It automatically dispels negative energy, making it a great crystal cleanser. Most crystals absorb negative energy and keep it within themselves, this negative energy makes the crystal weak. However, with Citrine, it takes in the negative energy and dispels it. Place this crystal with others to cleanse the of their negative energy.
Citrine attracts wealth, success and plentiful abundance.
Citrine stimulates a creative mind, helping you with drawing, painting, writing (on HubPages maybe!), inventing and designing. Unleash your inner potential with Citrine!
Citrine boosts self-esteem and self-confidence, as it rids any negative energies coming your way.

Citrine's sun-like qualities emanate strength and vibrancy, which strengthen vitality and make it an exceptional companion for spiritual development & transformation.
By its ability to activate the solar plexus, the seat of the will, it will help you to be decisive about what you will bring into your life.
This is an exceedingly beneficial stone, that brings through energy to all of the lower three chakras. In addition it will open up the third eye chakra and aid you to think more clearly.

The beads are held together with hand knots made with 100% pure silk, 8-ply thread. The beautiful tassel you see in the pictures above is also Handmade with pure silk threads and is knotted in the strongest possible way for durability. As you know, our shop’s policy is to infuse our products with as much positivity as possible and so each knot between the beads is made while reciting mantras, which fill powerful positive energy into the mala. After the mala has been created, it is further energized with proper “mantras” by Swami Ji in order to maximize its spiritual potency and power.
We know you value the sanctity of your mala so all our malas come with a mala pouch that you can use protect your mala from dirt and external damage.
Since all our products are natural and unaltered, slight variations in the color, size and shape of the mala beads as well as the tassel, string and mala pouch may occur. Each item is unique in its own way and is made with the same dedication as any other.
We understand that despite our best efforts to offer you a pleasant experience with your mala journey, there may be instances when you are dissatisfied. In that case, we are happy to refund your entire purchase without an issue.
All “japa” or prayer-bead malas, healing wands, pyramids, our hand-made healing pendant bracelets and yantras are man-made objects and require spiritual activation. We endeavor to offer you malas that provide you with both peace and power and so “pran pratishtha” (infusion of energy) of each mala is done according to ancient vedic practices by priests. Holy water from the River Ganga (Ganges) is used for purification and vitalization of the stones, which is essential for the mala to be used for meditative practices.
The total number of beads in each full-sized mala available at our shop is 108 plus one additional Guru bead.
Other Helpful Information
What is a Mala?
A Mala is a string of beads used to count mantras (Sanskrit prayers) in sets of 108 repetitions.
What is a Mantra?
A mantra is a word or series of words chanted aloud or silently to invoke spiritual qualities. Chanting is used as a spiritual tool in virtually every cultural and religious tradition. In the yogic tradition a mantra is a Sanskrit word that has special powers to transform consciousness, promote healing or fulfill desires. The practice of chanting a mantra is used as a form of meditation. Sitting in a comfortable position, with the eyes closed, the mantra is repeated silently or aloud. The mind is focused on the mantra, the thoughts are let go of and the breath is slow and deep.
What is Japa?
Malas are used for keeping count while reciting, chanting, or mentally repeating a mantra or the name or names of a deity. This practice is known in Sanskrit as “japa.”
A japa mala or prayer mala or meditation mala (meaning garland) is a set of beads commonly used by Hindus and Buddhists, usually made from 108 beads, though other numbers, usually divisible by 9, are also used. When Mantras are repeated on beads of Mala, it is called japa and the mala is called japa mala. Malas are typically made with 19, 21, 27, 54 or 108 beads. In Tibetan Buddhism, traditionally Malas of 108 beads are used. Some practitioners use Malas of 21 or 28 beads for doing prostrations. Doing one 108-bead Mala counts as 100 mantra recitations, the extra repetitions done to amend any mistakes in pronunciation or other faults of recitation. Malas are mainly used to count mantras. These mantras can be recited for different purposes linked to working with mind. The material used to make the beads can vary according to the purpose of the mantras used. Some beads can be used for all purposes and all kinds of mantras. The distinctive japa or meditation mala consists of 108 individually knotted beads. A single guru bead is attached to the threaded tassel. Prayer beads are an indispensable tool for meditation. Each bead is used to count the repetition of a mantra or chant. The number 108 bears spiritual significance across several religions. When a mantra is repeated 108 times, the person meditating is connecting with the spirit of the universe, paying respects in deep humility to that which pervades all life. A personal mala is a wonderful accessory to meditation, which when used regularly with a personal mantra, absorbs the vibrations of the practice. It becomes like a close friend or a comfortable piece of clothing. The japa or meditation or prayer mala, when worn also acts as a talisman and maintains a positive flow of energy throughout the body. Moreover, now a-days bead therapy is very common and many people have benefited from it.

Some beads can be used for all purposes and all kinds of mantras.
To empower the mala and the mantra used, japa (mantra meditation) should be practiced each day for 40 continuous days. When the Mala becomes empowered, it can be worn or lightly placed on oneself or others to transmit the energy of the mantra as well as the energetic qualities of the mala. When you use a new mantra with a mala, this energy becomes replaced, so it is recommended to use a new mala with each mantra if possible.
When not in use, store your mala in a special, clean and preferably sacred space. The best place to store a mala is on a personal altar or near statue of a deity.
How do you use a Mala?
Hold your mala in your right hand and use your thumb to “count” each mantra by touching the bead during the recitation and then lightly pushing the bead away on completion and moving to the next bead. The index finger is extended and should not touch the mala. The large meru (mountain) bead should not be counted or touched by the thumb and is used as a starting and ending point of the recitation. If you have a wrist mala of 27 beads you will need to repeat this 3 more times. Continue by pulling the beads and going backwards until you again end at the meru and continue until you have done 108 repetitions, or multiples of 108.
It is not necessary that a mala be used only for meditation. It can also be worn as a necklace to attract positive vibes (all malas) and bring medical benefits (in some cases such as the agate, turmeric (haldi) mala).

Your mala is a precious part of your life. When we make each mala, we hope our buyers will use it lifelong. Mala making requires patience, as does the maintenance of your mala. Any vigorous exercise (with your mala) or bathing/swimming may cause damage to it.
We make our malas and bracelets keeping in mind your need for positivity energy. Although your mala absorbs negative energy, you must clean your mala regularly to ensure that the mala does not become saturated with negativity and reflect it back to you. Leaving your mala in natural sunlight for a few hours could do the trick for removing negativity.
Malas strung on a natural silk thread are delicate and we urge our buyers to avoid frequent stretching. Too much stretching may damage your mala.
Often my buyers ask why they their malas or bracelets have slight discolorations or differences from the pictures shown. This is due to each gemstone’s natural originality and uniqueness. Each stone is slightly different from the other, which is why your mala is special from the same one another buyer may receive.
