There’s No Place Like Now Mala – Lapis Lazuli & Goldstone


Hand knotted in the California sun, cleansed by the full moon, & made with the mantra “There's no place like now.”

There's No Place Like Now malas are a gentle reminder that we can only be in one place, and that place is the present moment. Traditionally the guru bead represents your own teacher or the higher, universal Self. In the place of the traditional gemstone, these malas contain a vintage watch face, pointing to Now, reminding us that we can learn from every moment, that every observation and interaction we have imprints itself upon us. If we remain receptive, our inner guide grows stronger, helping us along the path we choose to follow in life.

This mala is made of natural, high-grade lapis lazuli beads flecked with pyrite and brilliant goldstone. Lapis lazuli promotes greater self-awareness and inspires confidence, assisting one in speaking their truth. It is a stone that releases stress, bringing a sense of peace, serenity, and deep Self-knowledge, truth, and enlightenment. Goldstone is filled with thousands of copper flecks, conducting spiritual energy and deflecting unwanted energies. It increases drive, helping one attain goals with less effort. It is the stone of ambition and drive.

The mala pictured is the actual mala that will be shipped to you.

There’s No Place Like Now malas are made from vintage watch faces. Each mala is unique. One may find tiny scratches on the watch face or the housing, though if there’s anything large I wouldn’t be using it to craft this item. I note the color of the watch metal below, but please note that I have no idea of the true contents of the metal in the watch piece.

This mala is made of 102 lapis lazuli beads and 6 goldstone beads strung on kakhi-colored nylon for endurance. The watch piece is gold, with tiny flowers adorning the top and bottom of the face, and the tassel is a metallic copper. This watch keeps good time at “now”, not straying off course to the future or the past.

Bead size: 10mm Grade B Natural Lapis Lazuli, 8 mm goldstone
Mala length (minus tassel): 48 inches, guru bead hitting close to svadhisthana chakra

All malas are hand-knotted by me. I use “There’s no place like now,” as a mantra during knotting, and all malas are cleansed in the full moonlight before shipping. You receive a mala ready to be imbued with your energy!
