10 months ago I started up MalaforVets as a way to help raise awareness for Veterans with PTSD.  I too suffer from this ugly-faced disease.  Making mala beads helps calm and center me.  The focus and attention to detail allow me to escape my thoughts.  Little did I know that I would be creating powerful and meaningful mala beads for people not just in the US...but across the globe. (Australia, UK, Netherlands, Japan)

The Warrior Mala bead has been by far my most popular mala bead thanks to Save A Warrior and Mindful Yoga Therapy. I've made about 80 of these...and counting. (See Veterans Day Fundraiser....ALL NOVEMBER LONG!) I hope to be over 100 by the end of the year...Maybe you will help!  These mala beads protect the user from all negative emotions, and reduces energy over rage, resentment, bad tempers, and anger in self and from others. It helps one banish sorrow or depression. Grounds energy and attention into the present. Increases physical energy, confidence, assertiveness, appetite, awareness of feelings, emotional warmth, sociability, compassion, individuality, and memory. The wood beads are very grounding. Rudraksha balances the ying and yang and to help increase tranquility.  All qualities Warriors with or without PTSD need.

BUT...what I am most thankful!  Everyone who has purchased a mala bead for themselves...sent one to a loved one as a gift...sponsored a Warrior...or shared a link I have posted.  THANK YOU! 

To show my thanks, I want to give you a code for 20% off your next purchase.  Send me a picture of you and your mala beads and a short explanation of what your mala beads mean to you.  If you don't have any of my mala beads...check out the site.  I try to make five or so new mala beads each week.
