What do Mala beads mean to you?
Personally, Mala beads mean many things to me. Since I’ve started working at Tiny Devotions I’ve developed quite the Mala collection and every one I own means something special to me. I give every one of my Malas a specific intention. For example, I wear my White Jade Highest Potential Mala on days when I feel like I need a little boost reaching my work goals. I wear my Sweetheart Mala on date night to help open my heart, and my Katie Brauer Truth Seeker Mala on those days where I feel a little lost and feel the need to reconnect with my spirit. My mala beads keep me grounded and focused on the important things in life: my purpose, happiness and love. They’re also reminder to never sweat the small stuff.
If I didn’t love my job so much I would definitely be a gypsy. I absolutely love to travel and have been blessed enough to make my way around much of the world. The sights, sounds and flavors I absorb while exploring new places and cultures influence my work every single day. I wake up every morning on a mission to inspire our community and often draw on the wisdom I’ve gleaned globe trotting to do so.
What do you hope to bring to others?
At Tiny Devotions our mission is to inspire people live more peaceful and intention based lives. Whether it’s through our Malas and aspirational accessories, our inspiring Facebook posts and Instagrams, or our Boho Daily bloggers, we want to make our community feel like they have exactly what it takes to live the life of their dreams.
Simply by setting intentions for ourselves. It’s really easy to get swept up in the stressors of daily routine. So many people just go through the motions without really taking the time to ask themselves what they want and who they want to be. When we set intentions we give ourselves direction. Our lives become more meaningful and we begin to discover our purpose. That’s when life becomes truly magical.
What does the bohemian girl of today look like?
When I look at our Tiny Devotions’ community I see bohemian girls from all walks of life. Some rock bold yogi tights, while others feel at home in their flower crowns and fringe boots. Some of our boho girls are heading off to college, while others are having their first baby. Being bohemian is less about how you look, and more about how you feel. It’s a way of life.
I’ve been a vegetarian, a vegan, gone gluten-free and even flirted briefly with a paleo diet. None of these phases lasted long, but helped me learn about my body and discover a nutritious way of living that works for me. To me holistic living means feeding your body, mind and spirit with the best of the best. Eat healthy, never stop learning, and take at least a few minutes out of each day for a little soul searching.
What is your message to cynics, skeptics, and the intrigued?
What you believe, you receive.
Finally, what are your top five tips for self-love?
- Transform your inner critic into an encouraging voice. This takes time, but once you stop putting yourself down and start pumping yourself up, you’ll make some serious magic happen in your life.
- Fall in love with your body. In the shower pay yourself some juicy compliments. Tell your belly how beautiful she is and thank your scars for everything they’ve taught you.
- Surround yourself with people who inspire you and make you feel loved.
- Meditation is amazing for a multitude of reasons, self-love just being one of them. Add a Mala to your meditation and give it the intention of self-love.
- Put up photos of your favorite memories, adventures to remind yourself how full and wonderful your life really is and how gorgeous you truly are.
