Green Aventurine Mala Necklace
WHAT ARE MALA BEADS?
Mala Beads aren't just beautiful pieces of jewelry — they are also important mediums for peace and enlightenment.
Simply stated, mala beads are a set of beads that have traditionally been used in prayer and meditation.
Often called prayer beads, anyone can wear these beautiful pieces.
You don't have to be religious or have any spiritual practice. We believe you can simply wear them as a reminder of an intention you've set. And if you are seeking a calmer mind, body and spirit.
Traditionally, the beads have been used in prayer and meditation. But don't let that intimidate you.
Anyone can wear mala beads, whether you meditate or not. Often, people are drawn to the necklaces for their believed healing qualities of calming the mind and providing inner peace.
You can wear them around your wrist, your neck, hang them at your altar, or meditate on them.
If you choose to meditate on your mala, you will most likely use a mantra. A mantra is a word, sound, or phrase repeated to aid in your concentration. It can be as simple as the word 'love,' something you are thankful for, or a sanskrit phrase such as 'om shanti, shanti, shanti' which represents all encompassing peace.
To count your mantras, hold your mala in your hand and turn each bead with your thumb and middle finger. (The index finger is believed to represent 'ego' and is not recommended to turn the beads.)
It's widely believed that when one uses a mala for meditation, and makes it all the way around, they will have found enlightenment.
Some malas have different counts. Our mala beads have 108, as that's a very traditional and sacred number. They are also hand-knotted between each seed and gemstone to help aid in the practice of japa meditation.
If you choose to meditate on your mala, be patient and kind to yourself. Your mind will surely wander. The practice of bringing your attention back to your mantra and your beads is the practice of mindfulness. Do so with kindness and without judgement.
