New to mala beads?
A mala is easy to use, and can be worn by anyone. People have used them for thousands of years as a tool to help focus the mind during meditation, mantras, or prayer. Others wear them as a beautiful piece of jewelry for the believed healing properties of the stones themselves, or as a simple way to remind them of their intentions, affirmations, or goals.
A good beginning practice that anyone can do with a
mala, is to take a few minutes each day to close your eyes, and take a slow deep breath with each bead. The goal is to give yourself a break, slow down, and learn to be present and peaceful in the moment.
Each mala is carefully handmade using quality materials. They are never rushed, and are infused with positive reiki energy before being placed inside their gift box.
For easy reference, the box includes printed information about malas, and a description of the beads used, and their meaning.
All malas come with a soft drawstring pouch to protect your mala when not in use.
- This mala is hand knotted on gray cord with genuine 8mm gemstones.
It measures approximately 21" from top to bottom, and has a black tassel.
BLACK LAVA: (black) volcanic rock. It is said to be a stone of strength, courage, and protection. Add a drop of your favorite essential oil to a lava bead and your mala becomes a diffuser!
RUDRAKSHA: “Rud-ruck-sha.” These seeds are from a tree which usually grows at a certain altitude in the mountains, mainly in the Himalayan region. They are the original Vedic "beads of power" worn by the Yogis of India and the Himalayas for thousands of years. Yogis and Monks have found that wearing the Rudraksha beads gave them a tremendous amount of tranquility and concentration, that helped them meditate for very long periods of time. Rudraksha is considered to be sacred and extremely powerful in manifesting.
