What are Mala Beads and how do I use them?

Crystals for beginners

Mala Beads
Over the  last 2 years I started working with Mala Beads, using them in meditation , yoga and also carrying them round with me - little bit like a little comfort blanket.
The last 6 months I kept having messages when I was meditating that I need to make my own.
The last 3 weeks I have worked very hard on my personal development. A specific area of my wellbeing that needed work. During the process I resorted to my mala, my mantras my crystals and of course my yoga practice with a few gong baths thrown in the mix and a good book covering the subject- these were my tools.
The mala was my focus tool, it helped dissolved those embedded negative anchors which triggered in certain thoughts and emotions.

So what are Mala Beads?
They are used as a meditation tool with 108 beads which is an significant number in Hinduism.
Theory is 1 stands for God, the universe or your own highest truth and identity , 0 represents emptiness and humility in spiritual practices; and 8 represents infinity and eternity.

Mala is very unique as it offers you a reflection of something on your own journey so the Mala becomes whatever you intend it to be for.
Whilst I rarely take mine off, I wear it either around my neck or around my wrist, and I carry with me, sleep with it and or out under my pillow.

There is also a way to use them:

Find quiet time and space.

Chant your desired mantra, alternatively play your mantra music.

Place your mala in your right hand, draped between your middle and index fingers. Starting at the guru bead, use your thumb to count each of the smaller beads, pulling it towards you as you recite your mantra. Do this 108 times, traveling around the mala, until you once again reach the guru bead. To. Carry on, reverse back before touching the guru bead.

Choosing Mala Beads

All my Mala beads are made with love and intention, and you may feel one you are significantly drawn to, this can be the colour, style, healing properties and even just cant work out why so attached to it. However I also make custom designs, you can email me with requirements or ask me to make the Mala which I feel resonates with you and will help you. Message me for more details
