Orders typically ship within 1-2 working days, not including weekends. I.e. If we receive an order Friday at noon in Bali, the earliest it may ship is Monday afternoon, depending on if we have stock or need to produce the order for you. Due to effects of Covid, Bali was closed for two years and onlys started opening its borders again slowly in March 2022. We are still navigating the challenges these restrictions brought, and beg for your patience and understanding. We currently do not hold a lot of stock and often produce on orders as we receive them, so it can happen that delays can occur.  If you have any urgency regarding receiving an order because it is a birthday gift etc, please inform us by contacting us at customercare@shivaloka.com and we will do our best to prioritize your request and get it to you in time. Please note that the shipping period for DHL or other courier option only reflects the time it takes once the order has been picked up by the courier and is in transit to your destination. Selecting the faster courier option does not mean that the fulfillment or production part is expedited. It only means that the actual shipping time is expedited. During sale periods, we expect delays in fulfilling and dispatching your order. If you require priority shipping, please email us at customercare@shivaloka.com

We are unable to ship to PO Boxes.

We usually require 1-2 business days (not including weekends) to process your order before it is dispatched. Yet, due to the impact of the pandemic and the two year lock down that devasted the Balinese local economy, we have been forced to reduce our stock quantity and produce on order. Therefore, we beg your patience and understanding that it is possible that at the time of your order, we have to produce the order just for you which is done at our in-house production and can be done quickly, yet this may prolong the delivery processing time. Please note the Delivery Processing time is not included in the delivery time mentioned for shipping. While we truly do our human best to produce, bless and ship our orders in the fastest time possible, we understand that there sometimes is an urgency to receive the order by certain dates. Therefore, please email us prior to your order to make sure that we can fulfill your timely needs.

Product Information

Before you purchase our jewelry, we recommend that you ensure the correct size by checking our size guide. You can find a link to the size on all of our product pages above the add to cart button or you can check the size guide here.

Our mala beads and sacred jewelry are authentic power objects intended to heal, uplift, protect and manifest your deepest soul intention. They are spiritual tools best used in combination with a powerful mantra meditation practice. At first, it may feel like a lot to learn and understand, but do not worry — we’ve got you! We will guide you step-by-step in every aspect of this spiritual practice in our SHIVALOKA academy where you can access lessons on mantras, instructions on how to meditate and how to use sacred power objects for healing, protection and  manifesting.

Yes, we offer custom designs for sacred custom malas or bracelets. Please note that our jewelry customizations have the sole purpose to create a true soul power object for life for your highest dharma and fulfillment. If you are looking for traditional jewelry with meaning but without soul purpose, we do not provide that service. Please contact our customer service with details of what we are looking for and your budget.

As all our sacred jewelry, power beads and meditation malas have been created with specific uses, powers and benefits in mind, we invite you to think deeply about what it is that you are looking for. It is best to ‘feel’ the jewelry through your eyes with your heart, not your mind. We often find customers already know but stand in their way of knowing because of their habit of defaulting their decision to their mind, instead of trusting and flowing with their inner guidance.   If you are a meditator and looking to deepen your meditation experience, we offer a variety of activated & blessed meditation malas strung with sacred rudraksha beads, lotus seeds or healing gemstones. We offer the option to customize your meditation bead with a unique divine power channel using a sacred Mukhi Rudraksha Power Bead of your choice. You can make the customized selection on the product page of the meditation mala of your choice.    If you are looking for a mala necklace or bracelet for upliftment, healing, protection and transformation, we suggest you Shop by Intention in our shop Menu.    Another option is to Shop By Power Beads, if you want to experience the miraculous powers of the holy Rudraksha beads. There are many varieties, each unique in their use and spiritual powers we can introduce you to. Finally, you have the opportunity now to create an astrological profile based an Jyotish, Vedic astrology, to find your sacred power bead according to your birth chart. Vedic astrology offers your astrological remedies for negative karmas and reveals opportunities to enhance your positive astrological features. Mukhi Rudraksha are recommended Vedic astrology remedies. They belong to the ancient science of sacred power objects.

There are literally thousands of ancient mantras you could use for meditation, each for unique intentions and benefits. But not every mantra is equally powerful and effective. First, we strongly recommend using Vedic mantras. You can find more information on suitable mantras to use for meditation with your sacred power object in our SHIVALOKA Academy. You gain complimentary access to the academy with the purchase of your SHIVALOKA soul jewelry and mala beads.

Rudraksha

We take our role as providers of Rudraksha very seriously and take great care in sourcing, testing and selecting these holy power beads. We have long-standing relationships with rudraksha farms and suppliers and guarantee that all our rudraksha beads and all the mukhi varieties we offer are authentic and high-vibrational beads. We activate all our sacred beads and jewelry.

Unless otherwise stated on the product page, all our rudraksha jewelry is strung with 5 mukhi/ 5 faced rudraksha beads. These are the common beads used for stringing, they are directly connected to Rudra, the primordial form of Shiva and symbolize Nature, the Five Elements, in perfect harmony. Therefore, they are the quintessential core bead that makes every aspect of these sacred designs so incredibly potent and powerful. They are very adaptable in energy and can be well combined pretty much with any other variety of mukhi bead or gemstones.   The other variety of Mukhi Rudraksha beads we use in our jewelry is often featured as the guru bead or the framed centerpiece of a bracelet design and multiplies the overall power of a piece.

Yes, you can wear more than one SHIVALOKA item at a time, you can wear multiple pieces, like Mukhi rudrakshas. It is up to one’s personal capacity and intentions.   With that said, each item has its unique energy and influence and we recommend to do the Sacred Intention Ritual and subsequent 41 day meditation process with each item separately, especially if they have different powers and intentions. It helps you have greater clarity on the power and connection with each piece when you work with each individually with your personal intentions.

SHIVALOKA’s founders are Master Healers and Siddhas (spiritually advanced souls) in the Divine Lineage of India’s Supreme Masters. Our founders were trained and initiated by the Avatar and Divine Master Sri Kaleshwar in this lineage and have the divine expertise and soul ability to create authentic sacred power objects. This is not something that can be done by anyone, it involves transference of Shakti, spiritual power, through sankalpam   For sacred beads, malas and energetic jewelry to express their full divine power in your life, they must be activated. Otherwise, the energy remains mostly dormant. Aside from the beautiful aesthetics and craftsmanship, the high vibrational, spiritual quality is truly what makes our spiritual jewelry remarkable and stand out from the rest. You can feel the difference, and innumerable customer testimonials from the past 14 years attest to that.   We have a video about spiritual activation of sacred power objects inside our Shivaloka Academy that you gain free access to with the purchase of SHIVALOKA soul jewelry.

Over the last years, some savvy business men decided to provide X-Rays of Mukhis as proof of the authenticity of mukhi rudraksha beads. It supposedly will show that it is indeed a seed and not a fake bead. The problem with that approach is that energetically, X-rays damage the high vibration of the beads which is the reason we do not offer this option. Since most of our rudraksha come from simple farmers from the mountains, they do not provide certificates. This is another scheme that people come up with to give people a reason to believe that they are buying an authentic bead when in fact the organizations that provide them are either intimately connected with suppliers or earn for each certificate. It is a business and doesn't provide the security you are looking for. Therefore we do not support these types of certificates. But we offer our word and integrity, that our mukhi rudraksha are all authentic and high-vibrational.

Indonesian Rudraksha beads are smaller in size in comparison to Nepalese beads, and most of our customers prefer the smaller Rudraksha mukhi beads. Indonesian mukhi beads have lines running from top to bottom of the bead and make up the face or mukhis while Nepalese beads have deep clefts instead. Energetically, Nepalese beads are rumored to be more powerful than Indonesian beads, and this is one part because Indonesians do not possess the knowledge of authentically activating the beads. Also, growing in the soil of the Himalayas is considered very sacred. Yet, as we are experienced in recognizing high every beads (they are not all the same) we find powerful Indonesian beads and activate and bless them so that they become powerful and transformative.

The value of Rudraksha has especially in the past 15 years risen tremendously in the market and the prices are increasing. They are often more valuable than gold prices. Especially Nepalese beads are very expensive as the beads are more rare and considered premium beads. We are able to provide Nepalese beads upon request. Please contact our customer care team.

We always seek to support the local economy and are blessed to be able to source powerful Rudraksha beads directly from Rudraksha farms in Indonesia for that matter, as well as from India and Nepal.

The rudraksha bead sizes we use most for stringing our jewelry are 6mm and 8mm beads. Depending on design, we also use smaller beads like the powerful and rare 4mm rudraksha beads, and also bigger sized beads like 9mm - 12mm beads, but found for the daily purposes they are used, 6mm and 8mm beads blend in and work well as jewelry, and are delicate enough for the tactile effort of counting beads in meditation without being tedious.

Jewelry Care

All our sacred jewelry and mala beads have been activated and blessed, and therefore hold shakti (spiritual power) which is the transformational, intention-manifesting, healing ingredient of our jewelry. We advise all our customers to be very diligent in taking care of their sacred power objects by not letting them touch the ground as the gravitational force of the Earth is so powerful it will “suck” the high divine energy, the shakti, of your SHIVALOKA items. It can happen that your sacred power object touches the ground accidentally. In this case, you need to first test the object to see if it has discharged, and then if you feel it is required there are two options: 1. We can recharge the shakti in your sacred jewelry if you wish to send it to us, or 2. You can do a reactivation meditation practice with your beads to rekindle the shakti. We share all details on this practice is the Shivaloka Academy that you can gain access to with the purchase of your SHIVALOKA sacred jewelry.

To protect your SHIVALOKA soul jewelry, we recommend removing your sacred gems when you shower, bathe, swim or engage in sports or any activities that make you sweat. Some sacred beads do NOT like water and can break.

Nickel is a trace metal found in precious metals such as silver or gold and classified as an allergen. We do not add nickel to the metals in our jewelry however trace amounts can sometimes can be found in some of the metals. The great majority of people will not have a reaction, only very few, highly sensitive people may react allergically. Please contact us if you have an allergic reaction to the metals.

  • Avoid wearing your sacred jewelry when you have freshly sprayed perfume, applied cream or other liquids to your skin as this can create a chemical reaction and tarnish the precious metals and darken your sacred beads. We use an anti-tarnish solution on silver but silver is a very fickle metal and can easily tarnish when it comes in contact with the above mentioned products.

  • Avoid placing your jewelry in a spot where direct, intense sunlight hits it over an extended period of time as it can cause discoloration of the metals and gemstones.

  • For silver jewelry, you can use a Sterling Silver cleaner and polish the metal with a soft polishing cloth. Try to avoid the cleaner getting onto the sacred beads, if possible.

  • Do not use a chemical cleaner or abrasive cloth on 22k gold vermeil as it may remove the gold plating.

  • Do not use tissue paper or paper towel to clean precious metal as it can cause scratches on the surface

  • Brass can be cleaned with a brass cleaner and soft cloth

  • 14k, 18k and 22k gold jewelry should be cleaned frequently to keep it shiny. All you need is a bowl of warm water, dish soap and a soft toothbrush and a soft, lint-free polishing cloth to dry and buff the gold. Soak the jewelry for 15 minutes in the soapy, lukewarm water, then brush the gold gently with the toothbrush, then rinse it under cool water and let it dry and buff with the cloth.

  • ​​Do not soak natural emeralds, pearls, opals, coral, lotus seeds, tulsi and sandalwood in water. Emeralds, pearls and opals are delicate and soaking can cause permanent damage, while coral and most sacred beads are made of wood and therefore are soft and absorbent, so water and any chemicals can cause permanent discoloration or damage.

  • Even though people think that pearls love water, once harvested they should not be exposed to water and only cleaned with a soft cloth. Do not keep them in an airtight container, pearls need to “breathe”.

Lotus Seed beads especially require good care and we give you all the tips and information you need to make sure your Lotus Seed mala remains highly energetic and with luster.    

Sacred Beads should not be kept too long inside a pouch or dark cupboard and require to mingle in the elements, especially indirect sunlight and flow of air will make your mala stay vibrant. As sacred beads are made of natural seeds and wood, they can turn moldy or attract bugs if they are kept inside a bag too long and not worn or used. This is especially the case in places with high humidity. Silica gel packs can help but it is by far best to use and wear your sacred beads often and keep them on your altar draped over your favorite idol like a Ganesh statue or whatever holy items grace your sacred space at home. When you travel, it is best to store your jewelry in a soft pouch.
