How to Set Intentions for Your Mala Beads


Hello!  If you're here, you are probably wondering how to set your new piece with intentions.  Even if your piece is not specifically a set of mala beads, you can set intentions on any piece of jewelry with gemstones.  Gemstone therapy goes as far back as ancient Egypt, probably even further! 

The first step is to spend some times with your gemstones and figure out what exactly your intentions are.  If you are struggling with this, then ask yourself a few questions:

  • What are my main aspirations / goals? 
  • What do I need the most help with?
  • What are my main struggles / vices in life?

After you have chosen your intention, it's time to spend some quality time with your piece.  Make sure you are in a relaxed environment, free from any stressors.  Put the piece in your hand and focus on the feelings like texture, temperature, density, etc.  Anything you notice as you are running your piece through  your fingers.  While you are doing this focus as deeply as possible on your intention.  

Now you are ready to wear your new piece!  When you feel anxious or upset, run the piece through  your fingers and focus on your intention.
