Once you have activated your mala beads, you may want to cleanse and clean them from time to time. The beads are believed to absorb and store energy, therefore depending on your preference you may wish to cleanse your mala beads from time to time.
We recommend that you do not lend or share your malas with others as not to transfer any energy. If this does happen you may wish to cleanse your mala.
There are a few different ways you can cleanse your mala. Here are some of our favorite ways to cleanse ours:
- placing it in the sunlight or moonlight (do not let them to much in the sunlight to prevent fading)
- burning white sage over your mala
- placing your mala in a singing bowl and ringing the edges, or tapping the side to bring sound to the bowl
