“Every act of love and kindness raises the vibration of the entire universe.” ~ Anonymous
Meditation is my anchor. I have practised meditation daily from the age of eleven. Since my twenties, it has been twice daily. It is the single most transformative thing I have ever incorporated into my life, and it’s a passion of mine.
Every time I run a mala-making workshop or a meditation workshop they sell out fast! I listened when you told me that you wanted to be able to learn to meditate even if you couldn’t come to my classes. So when I was working on the draft of my new YOM (Year of ME) Planner for 2019, I saw a way to help you. Each year I choose crystals to support the energy of every month of the year. For the past two years I have sold these stones in packs when I launched my Planner. But for 2019 I have done something different – I have incorporated each of the stones into a meditation mala. I have also added a lava stone and a clear quartz to the end of the mala. You can use the lava stone as a personal diffuser by adding a drop of your favourite essential oil. The clear quartz can be programmed to hold your intentions for the year ahead.
After I designed the mala, I searched high and low to find someone to make it for me. It was important that the people I worked with were ethical, that the staff were treated well and paid fairly, and that I could trust the integrity of the stones and of the work. I wanted the people making the malas to understand their use, and to respect them as a spiritual tool. Finally, I found a small company in India, and we have worked together tirelessly for months as I have modified my design, sourcing the best crystals from around the world and rudraksha from Nepal, creating the best possible product to support you. Rudraksha are seeds from a holy plant that is sacred to Hinduism and Buddhism.
Each mala has been lovingly made and hand-knotted – all to my design. A blessing is said for each bead as it is placed on the string. The finished malas are then blessed by a Hindu priest in a special ceremony. The blessed malas are on their way to me right now. Finally, the malas will sit in meditation with me at my farm, as I charge them up in a crystal grid and work to attune their energy. Then they will be ready to share with you.
The energies of this special mala are amazing. You can really feel the peace and love held within the mala, and when you wear it you get a sense of safety, calm and love. They are just beautiful. In fact, since I ‘ve been wearing mine people have been stopping me in the street to ask where I bought it from!
I’ve also had this year’s Planner printed at a lovely local family-owned business here in Australia. They are going to be exceptionally good quality, and I’m so proud of our new design and all the extra support features. If you buy a Planner pack (there are lots to choose from) on pre-order you will have access to a range of free bonus online mini-courses as a thank you for supporting this project. The Planner membership packages for 2019 also include twelve free additional mini-courses and live events over the next year as well as the year-long membership and course, and our wonderful private Facebook group.
This is my best offering yet, and I know you are going to absolutely love what we’ve created for you. Make sure to secure your Planner and Mala with a pre-order. They are both in limited supply, and I don’t want you to miss out!
Here’s a sneak peek at the YOM Planner for 2019. (Confession – I have stuck the cover for next year on my existing 2018 Planner for these photos as I only have the unbound proof copy so far!)
And here’s some footage of our glorious malas being made:
It doesn’t get much more authentic than this:
Here they are being Blessed:
