    BLOOMING LOTUS [PART 3]

If you ask me, there is nothing better in this world than a creative person with a passion for helping others achieve happiness. That’s exactly what Jennifer Ciraulo decided to do when she launched her company, Blooming Lotus Jewelry, in 2010. Since it’s conception, Jennifer has grown Blooming Lotus Jewelry into a widely-known company that focuses on meaningful Yoga practice and quality, handmade pieces. 

I had the opportunity to collaborate with Jennifer and Monica on a three part series to model some of her hand-knotted malas. At the culmination of the series, our beautiful contributor Alex will be featuring a piece on her own Yoga practice and giving you a more in depth explanation of what a mala is and how she uses them (you definitely don’t want to miss that!). In the meantime, these are the pieces that are featured in this second installment of the series:

Chakra Bracelets – The chakras act like a ladder to love, spirituality and healing, from the base energy of the Root Chakra that anchors us to the more refined spiritual energy of the Crown Chakra.

Soulmate Mala – Rhodochrosite opens the Heart Chakra, Anahata. Awakens love and and is thought to attract one’s soul mate. Alleviates stress while encouraging you to face your emotions and carry a positive attitude toward life and love.

Enlightenment Mala – The Crown Chakra reaches the heights of spirituality. The chakras act like a ladder to love, spirituality and healing, from the base energy of the Root Chakra that anchors us to the more refined spiritual energy of the Crown Chakra. The Crown Chakra opens when we have attained psychological maturity and spiritual development. Through the choices we make, our life lessons and realizations, we gain a greater sense of what we are capable of and what our purpose in life may be.

Speak Your Truth Mala – Your truth is everything. It’s who you are, not what society, friends and family say you are or should be. Speak confidently from your heart and support those words with action. Be confident in the person you are and have become and the universe will support you.
