Benefits of adorning a Spatiga Maalai
Spatiga or Quartz crystal, a gift given to us by earth is a good conductor of energy. While Sphatik further strengthens the positivity within a person, it liberates an individual from all causes of fear or anger.
Sphatik is possessed with a strong field of light and energy which provide sonic protection against negative vibrations. It makes one more affectionate and gives him the ability to enjoy life. Alternately, sphatic is known to fulfill one’s desires in life. Adorning a mala of sphatik or quartz crystal strengthens purpose in life, diminishes stress, supports healing abilities and helps with centering (balancing or soothing). The Sphatik Mala is said to have spiritual powers; it renders peace and calms the stressed mind. This has the capability to reduce body heat. Hence it is worn by people around the neck to keep their body temperatures regulated and minds cool. Sphatik removes excess heat from the body and can also reduce fever. Sphatik Mala helps focus the mind. It also helps relieve headaches and reduces stress and tension by promoting overall healing of the body.
Sphatik Mala is mainly used by followers of Lord Shiva to appease him. In this mala, the bead attached to the tassel is called Sumeru or the crown bead, and the mala is often used to keep count while chanting the god’s name. When this is used for prayers, one counts all beads starting from the first bead adjacent to Sumeru. On reaching the 108th bead, one stops and counts in reverse. The Sumeru bead is the guru bead and should not be used for counting.
Sphatik (also called as Quartz crystal) is a power stone. It enhances energy by absorbing, storing, amplifying, balancing, focusing and transmitting. Sphatik is a stone of clarity and dispels negativity. While it can be used to purify and clarify on the spiritual, mental, and physical planes, it is also a stone of harmony. Sphatik balances energies and is even helpful in romantic relationships. In many cases, sphatik is used to perform diagnostic healing as it amplifies healing energy.
