hile the physical care of your Soul Jewelry is important, how you spiritually care for your Soul Jewelry is even more so. Earlier, we mentioned storing your Soul Jewelry on your altar, a sacred space, which is a beautiful spiritual practice. We also mentioned wearing your Soul Jewelry directly against your skin, which enhances and quickens its intimate energetic connection with your soul. Yet, the most powerful spiritual technique for taking care of your Soul jewelry is to meditate with it.
Part of the inner secrecy of “japa” or mantra meditation is that, with each repetition of the mantra, you charge its divine energy to your soul. During each session, more of the mantra’s power becomes charged within you, becoming part of you, transforming you. Eventually, it becomes fully charged. Since each soul is individual, naturally, the exact number of repetitions of a mantra needed for the mantra to be fully charged to your soul differs. Yet, it’s known that, along the way, a “minimum daily dosage” of repetitions ensures a lasting energetic charge from every mantra. That number is 108. You simply continue daily, open-hearted practice of repeating the mantra 108 times until you complete your exact number. Then, the shakti of the mantra is fully charged to your soul. There are clear symptoms. Its energy will never leave. In fact, it will continue to grow on its own…and so will your soul power.
Meditation malas, traditional necklaces consisting of a circuit of 108 beads, were created to help facilitate this process. Draping the mala in one hand, slipping each bead through your fingers, one bead for each repetition of the mantra until your complete the circuit, ensures you fulfill the minimum daily dosage. Yet, the true beauty of a mala is this:
1) its inherent power protects your spiritual practices
2) it, too, becomes fully charged by the mantra and, in turn, your Soul jewelry becomes an amazing personal Sacred Power Object, which has the ability to transmit the healing power of the mantra and your soul to others, just by coming into contact with it.
This is why Soul Jewelry are considered family heirlooms. They can heal & protect anyone who sees or touches them. And, they hold that capacity for generations.
