  • What is a Mala?

    Mala A beautiful Calming Mala created by Peacock Arts.

    Mala’s are a traditional tool used to count the number of times a mantra is recited, breaths while meditating, or the repetitions of a buddha's name.  This practice is known in Sanskrit as japa. Malas are typically made with 18, 27, 54 or 108 beads. In Tibetan Buddhism, malas of 108 beads are used. From our friend Ky Gabriel at Peacock Arts, "It is said that 108 times is the ideal number to take the prayer from a head space into an embodied heart space and when using a Mala there is no need to count, you can let the beads do it for you!"

    The increasing popularity of Yoga has made Malas fashionable. With strands of 108 beads plus a "guru" bead traditionally used for meditation and prayer, designers are making mala necklaces now that combine gemstones imbued with potent energies and sacred meaning to infuse your practice. However, most Malas are worn around the wrist. When looking at a Mala, notice the knots in between the beads. These knots represent our thoughts in meditation. The knots stop the beads from touching each other, just like our thoughts should not touch each other. As a "pro" tip, Ky states, "I recommend never buying Malas that aren't hand knotted."

    For Heaven’s Sake is teaming up with Ky Gabriel in early January 2018 for a Mala making workshop, where she'll provide insight into the art of Mala making. Come set powerful intentions for your life and create beautiful 108 bead Malas while making new friends. Learn about mantras and how to use them in your japa meditation with your very own healing gemstone Mala that you will create! Includes a short guided meditation. No experience necessary.

    To be sure to get the stones and colors you desire, signing up early is required. The class is $65 includes all materials and instruction (price includes standard stones). Ky will contact you with stone options as soon as your order is confirmed. There may be an additional charge for premium stones (available upon request).

  • Friday the 13th, November 2017

    Friday the 13th, 2017

     

    Is there something to fear on Friday the 13th?

    For years people have said Friday the 13th is an unlucky day. Horror movies have been named after this day, that's how prevalent the the belief is, however, astrologically, there’s nothing about Fridays or the 13th of the month that indicate danger or bad luck.

    Friday is associated with the planet Venus, which associates the day with pleasant things like love, friendship, art and even a little indulgence. In Angel Numbers, 13 presents the following:

    "The ascended masters (such as Jesus, Quan Yin, and so on) are with you, helping you maintain a positive outlook. The number 13 signifies that female ascended masters and goddesses are assisting you in staying positive."

    Studies do show that the occurrence of accidents tends to go up on Friday the 13th, but many authorities believe that this is the result of excessive anxiety rather than the day itself. So when Friday the 13th rolls around, if you're feeling anxious, meditate, light incense or commune with your crystals. You can also come by the store and enjoy some company and meet new people who share your interests!

    The key take away is: relax.

  • 4 Ways to Attract Positive Energy Into Your Life This New Year

    unnamedMost people look at the New Year as a chance to start with a clean slate. If you’ve had troubles or challenges in the past, learn to let go of them and start the year by welcoming the wonderful things that are about to come into your life.

    Are you ready to make positive changes in your life this year? Here are 4 ways to attract positive energy into your life this year.

    Organize your home

    Want to attract wealth and good fortune into your home this New Year? Go through your home and clear the bad vibes that accompany clutter.

    According to feng shui principles, if your home has poorly arranged furniture, is dimly lit and cluttered, your life will be filled with obstacles. Get rid of things you no longer need. Also consider your furniture placement to keep your home safe and comfortable. Keeping your home clean and organized can revitalize your space and your life. As a result, you’ll have better opportunities for growth.

    Give a little

    Holiday is the season of giving. With all the blessing you’ve received the previous year, you might want to start your year by helping the less fortunate or donating to a shelter. If you don’ have extra money, volunteer. Help and give without expecting anything in return. This can dramatically impact your overall well-being and positivity.

    Smile more often

    Smiling, whether forced or not, can have a positive effect on your mood, health and well-being. When things get are going south or when you’re having a bad day, turn that frown upside down and just smile. Even when you don’t feel like smiling, you’ll feel better and happier when you smile.

    Smiles are also contagious. When you smile, people will be smiling with you. It makes everyone in the room feel happier.

    Be grateful

    Sometimes, it’s easier to focus on the things that are lacking in our life rather than what we have. You may not have everything you want in life, but there are countless things to be grateful for – your family, friends, job, material possessions and a lot more.

    Show more appreciation to the little things people do for you and let them know how much you appreciate having them in your life. Remember, people who cultivate thankfulness and happiness are happier and healthier.

  • New Year is the Best Time to Start Meditating

    new-year-meditatingIn today’s fast-paced, gadget-obsessed society, most people get so busy that many of them fail to be present in the moment. A well-lived life isn’t about having something, doing something or getting something. Rather, it is how you embrace the life you already have right now.

    We all know bad habits are hard to change. But as we close one year and begin a fresh new year, it’s time to start thinking about new healthy habits that will mold you into a better person.

    Here are 4 good reasons why you should start meditating this New Year.

    It beats the blues Regular meditation practice makes you happier. It helps reduce stress, anxiety, depression and increases positive emotion. It produces a feeling of calm and relaxation. Through regular meditation practice, you learn to let go of negative thinking. Over time, meditators experience enhanced positive emotions.

    It improves your health We all know that meditation helps increase our focus and eases anxiety, but the benefits of meditation aren’t just limited to mental health. Several studies suggest that meditation has tangible health benefits. It helps reduce stress levels, depression and anxiety, improves immune function, helps maintain blood flow and decreases inflammation at the cellular level. The best part is, you can reap all these benefits for as little as 15 minutes a day.

    It boosts your social life With the rise of technology, we don’t get to connect or interact with others as much as we used to. Meditation, being a social activity, heightens the individual’s emotional intelligence and develops the sense of connection to others.

    According to studies, individuals who practice meditation are more social. This is because meditation contributes to the release of endorphins, making the person feel good about himself/herself. Because of this, you become more confident – no worries, no social anxiety. Meditation has also been linked with greater compassion.

    It helps you live in the moment We live in an age of distraction. As you go through your daily routine, you may find yourself dreaming of vacation, your thoughts being clouded with the argument you had with your spouse this morning or thinking about what to have for dinner tonight. Keep in mind, though, that a wandering mind is an unhappy mind.

    Meditation helps by increasing your ability to stay in the moment. The more consistent you are with your meditation practice, the more skilled you become at limiting those distracting thoughts and focusing your awareness where you want it to go. It helps bring you back to the here and now.

  • Music Makes Meditation Sessions More Effective

    musicSometimes, you need a little time for yourself and take a break from all the stresses that life throws at you. In these busy times, however, a lot of people find it difficult to take time off from work and create a sense of balance in their lives.

    If you find yourself stressed and on the brink of burnout, consider doing meditation. Regular meditation sessions can greatly reduce feelings of stress by surrounding you with an atmosphere of serenity. For best results, make it a part of your daily life.

    Meditation is very easy to practice. You just need to set aside a few minutes a day and find a quiet spot to meditate in.

    There are a lot of things you can do to enhance your meditation experience. Listening to music is one of them. Some people find it peaceful and calming to listen to music. A lot of people, however, believe that it’s not possible to meditate while listening to music. This is one of the most common misconceptions about meditation. In fact, listening to music, on its own, can be seen as a form of meditation.

    Studies have shown positive benefits when listening to relaxing music while meditating. It helps quiet the mind and put you in a peaceful mood. It creates a calmer environment that makes meditation practice more effective. When the mind and body are relaxed, meditating becomes a more enjoyable and more fulfilling experience.

    Music is a personal choice. Stay open to the possibility that you can achieve deeper states by listening to whatever kind of music you choose. You will only be able to achieve mindfulness when you enjoy the music you’re listening to.

    If you haven’t tried this yet, then you’re missing out on the magical combination of music and meditation. Try to put on some relaxing new age, meditation music, binaural beats or any type of music you want, and see how it affects your meditative state. If you enjoy a certain type of music, then by all means, practice with it.

    Increase the duration of meditation gradually

    For a beginner, sitting still and completing a 60-minute meditation can be a challenge. You want your body and mind to adjust to changes.

    Start by focusing your mind on any thought. You can do it anywhere – be it in the bedroom, while waiting in line, riding on a bus or even at work. Do it for any length of time. Then, build your stamina through practice. Start with 10 minutes of sitting and then gradually increase the duration until you become more comfortable with sitting and being.

    Sit on a chair

    Since many of us are accustomed to sitting on a chair, most people have a hard time sitting cross-legged on the floor. If you are one of them, then go ahead and sit on a chair. But make sure that you sit with a straight spine.

    Do not lean against the back of the chair. Rather, sit on the edge of the chair so that both feet are flat on the floor. If you are not used to sitting this way, you can place a pillow on you lower back for support. Your feet may also tingle if they are not firmly planted on the ground. In this case, we advise that you place some pillows underneath your feet to so they won’t dangle.

    Maintain proper posture

    Sitting with a neutral spine can be difficult for a lot of people, even painful in most cases. Improper posture is one of the biggest reasons why your back is aching.

    Whether you choose to sit on the floor or sit on a chair, make sure you do not slouch. Sitting straight is one of the best methods to get your spine into alignment.
