Self-Care for the Soul with Mala and Me

This year, I’ve decided to dedicate the entire month of March to self-care on my blog. Each week, I’ll be talking all about how you can take better care of your mind, body, and soul.

This week, I’ll be focussing on self-care ideas for the soul with help from Mala and Me! Mala and Me is a local Edmonton-based gemstone company specializing in the creation of Malas and other vibrational jewellery. All Mala and Me jewelry is rooted in beauty and creating a spiritual practice.

If you’re unsure of what a Mala is, they are generally known as pieces of jewelry used for keeping count while reciting prayers, chanting, or mentally repeating a mantra or affirmation. Most Malas are typically made with 21, 24, 27, 54 or 108 beads, and each bead represents one repetition of your mantra.

I recently got to check out the Sweet Soul Mala and Matte Howlite Bracelet from Mala and Me and was floored by how beautiful both of the pieces were!

The Sweet Soul Mala is known to help wearers draw in more love, of any kind. Rose Quartz is known as the stone of unconditional love. It strengthens your sense of beauty and opens your heart for inner peace, positive self-love, and self-esteem.

The Matte Howlite Bracelet is known to help wearers heighten creativity and expand self-expression. Howlite, also known as white marble, is a wonderful stone for calming states of mind and emotion. It helps to decrease an overly critical state of mind, selfishness, stress, and anxiety to bring calm and relaxation to the wearer. Its specific energy aids in communication and eases confrontations.

To be honest, I have never thought of myself as a “spiritual” person. I don’t wake up every morning and meditate, talk to my crystals, or do yoga – but I do believe that setting an intention or mantra for yourself every single day is extremely beneficial for your soul. That’s why I love the idea of a Mala.

If you are someone that wants to start utilizing prayers, affirmations, or meditations as a means to help solidify a positive outlook and to embolden the law of attraction in your life, I highly recommend investing in a Mala and using it as a daily self-care tool for your soul.

A huge thank you goes out to Mala and Me for partnering with me this month to promote self-care for the soul through daily mindfulness and mantra! If you’d like to check out more products from Essentials by Nature, click here to visit their website.

I encourage you to join me in practicing self-care at least once a week during the month of March. To help document your weekly self-care and inspire others to do the same, I’ve created an Instagram Story template that you can use, which can be found in the @paigesimpsonyeg story highlights!
