Yogi Surprise Jewelry December 2018 Review
Here is the info sheet for this month’s box. This months theme is “New Beginnings.”
Lakshmi Mala Necklace
A mala is a strand of 108 beads plus a “guru” bead designed to help you with meditation or prayer. From my research, in Hinduism the number 1 stands for God, the universe, or your highest truth (whatever you believe!), the number 0 stands for emptiness and humility in the spiritual practice, and the number 8 stands for infinity and timelessness, which is why the malas are strung with 108 beads.
This mala is made with citrine, yellow agate, and hematite. The color yellow is supposed to enliven our inner power associated with the Manipura chakra, which is the chakra that contains clarity, self-confidence, wisdom, knowledge, and bliss. Those characteristics sound like great goals for the New Year, and I like that this mala was created to invoke the energy of Lakshmi, the Hindu goddess of wealth, fortune, and prosperity.
Lakshmi Mala Bracelet
Each strand of these two bracelets is 54 beads, which together makes 108 for the mala meditation. This is made with the same powerful stones, and I like that the closure allows me to put on and take off these bracelets by myself.
Rituals Teas by Firepot, 3 sachets – Buy 14 sachets for $9.49
For our snack this month we received three tea sachets from the brand Firepot. Each tea is designed to be consumed along with a yoga practice or mantra to help you achieve your zen. We received the flavors House of Peace (an herbal blend of chamomile, lemongrass, tulsi, rose petals, and ashwagandha root), Soul Revival (turmeric black tea chai), and Illuminated Mind (matcha and Sencha).
The Verdict: I look forward to my Yogi Jewelry Surprise box every month, and this month I liked being inspired to learn more about my Manipura chakra and the goddess Lakshmi. Yogi Surprise listed the total value of the box as $156. I am not a beading expert, so I cannot attest to the quality, authenticity, or value of the beads included. What I can say is that the pieces felt like they were of good quality (the Mala especially had a solid weight to it), and for the $24.95 I am happy with what I received – especially considering all jewelry is handcrafted with fair trade materials. I do wish we had received more than three tea bags, though!
