This month’s theme is The Gift of Gratitude ~ Let us be grateful to everything that makes up happy and for everything that taught us along the way. To the people who are entwined with our souls and to our beloved Mother Nature for connecting us all. Walk as if you are taking your first steps, touching the earth with your bare feet, mindfully breathing and witness the profound beauty of our home. Be thankful for all you have experienced knowing you are a wonderful child of the universe. Take comfort in knowing that you belong and are exactly where you need to be
Rosewood & Moonstone Bracelet This was our spoiler and I am happy that Yogi Surprise didn’t change the sizing on their bracelets to be so tiny that I can’t wear them. Moonstone has such a lovely clean white iridescence (or schiller), and the combination of the ethereal stone, with its ice blues and grey flashes of color with the warm, reddish brown rosewood is just really beautiful. The 7 moonstone beads (7 is a lucky number) are in the middle, flanked by rosewood beads. The wooden beads also have some beautiful swirls and circles due to the wood grain. I knew I was going to love this bracelet when I saw the spoiler the other month!
Rosewood ~ Heart Chakra ~ Compassionate, Healing, Feminine Energy. Rosewood a special, rare wood that is protective and can shield negative energy. It is known for healing, circulation and will aid in helping you manifest what you desire and dream. Intuitiveness is also enhanced. Read more at Sivana Spirit

Rosewood & Moonstone Mala Necklace Oh yeah! I’ve been wanting a Mala necklace in my Yogi Surprise box and they provide the matching Mala to the bracelet. This has 4 moonstone beads are placed in the “corners” the necklace ~ one at the base of the neck, two on the sides, and one at the bottom with the silky white tassel. The moonstone beads are flanked by silver-tone bead spacers. This necklace is 34 inches with a 3 1/2 inch tassel. So beautiful and I love that Yogi Surprise gave us this necklace to match with the bracelet.
Mala are an ancient tool to help focus when you meditate and pray. This is a symbol of the never ending cycle, and each bead is a Sanskrit prayer or mantra in sets. You move the beads in rhythm with your breathing and it will help you center and quiet your mind, focusing on the mantra. Mala beads can be used regardless of your religious beliefs as a mediation tool and will help you relax and calm your mind, body and spirit.

November is a fantastic month from Yogi Surprise. I love the cool tones of the moonstone juxtaposition with the warm reds of rosewood. Since Yogi Surprise has stopped disclosing the “value” of the items, I can only judge by if I think this is worth it personally to me ~ and yes, I do think this box is worth more than $25.00! The coco-choco-nuggets were also really tasty too! Part of the proceeds from this box will go back to the local artisans that made these items and help educate their community ~ and I always love a box with a social conscience.
