There are several ways to go about choosing the mala kit that is right for you. It is important to remember that each mala represents one intention. It is very common to have more than more mala, so you only need to determine one intention for each mala kit you are choosing. Understanding how you would like to use your mala is helpful in selecting your mala, but you can also find that intention throughout the process of selecting.
Trust your intuition
Don’t overthink this decision. Trust that your heart and body always know what you need. Are you drawn towards a specific stone, color, or maybe the words in the description of a particular mala kit? It is easy to dismiss these gut reactions and not acknowledge that there is a reason behind why you are drawn to certain things. These urges are often your intuition speaking to you. For instance, if you find yourself drawn to Howlite, it may be because you are craving peace of mind. Howlite aligns with the crown chakra and is used to relieve stress. Choosing your mala can be as easy as noticing what to what it is that you are drawn. Sometimes you do have to slow down and get quiet before you can hear your intuition speak so give yourself time to find some deep breaths, drink a warm mug of tea, practice some yoga, or any other activity that quiets the mind so you can hear the heart speak.
Choose based on intention
When choosing your mala kit, you can begin by taking some time to reflect on what you want to manifest in your life. Your mala will be associated with an intention you create for your life. Each kit has certain gemstones which support different intentions. Knowing what your aim is and how you want to use your mala will help you decide which kit is best for you. For example, if you desire to change your limiting beliefs around money, Green Aventurine might be for you because it stabilizes emotions, promotes abundance, and is known as the “stone of opportunity.” We have a quick guide to the meanings of our gemstones to help you see which will support your intention.

Invite in new energy
If you are looking to encourage personal expansion in a new area, you may want to choose a gemstone to which you would not typically be drawn. To invite in new energy, you must be willing to try new things. If you are often drawn to aqua blues, try looking for something different like Yellow Calcite, which helps you activate your inner power. Picking a gemstone that represents an area you need support in, but would not naturally gravitate towards, will invite in new energy and encourage growth.
Assessing the chakras
Chakras are the 7 energy centers throughout the body which correspond to different desires. These energy centers keep us physically, emotionally, and spiritually healthy when they are open and functioning properly. Assessing these seven chakras within yourself will help you to see where you can invite more intention. Here’s a quick test to help you find which of your chakras are blocked and which are balanced. If you noticed a particular chakra feels blocked, you might want to choose a mala kit which encourages that area to open.
