What are Mala Beads?
Traditionally, mala beads are tools for meditation. A string of beads to help you focus your mind while you're sitting. The jewelry is also beautiful and can be worn to remind you of your intention. If you're manifesting strength, love, grounding, etc., you can simply wear your mala to inspire you.
History of Mala Beads
Mala beads have been used by yogis and spiritual seekers for thousands of years to help keep their minds focused during meditation. Malas were first created in India 3000 years ago (with roots in Hinduism & Buddhism) and were used for a special style of meditation called Japa, which means, “to recite”. The term "mala" is a Sanskrit word for “meditation garland.”
Why 108 Beads?
Some believe there are 108 stages on the journey of the human soul, while others associate the possibility of enlightenment with taking only 108 breaths a day, while in deep meditation. In the yogic tradition, mala beads are used to recite mantras in meditation. A full cycle of 108 repetitions is counted on the mala, so the practitioner can focus on the sounds, vibration, and meaning of what is being said.
Indian Agate | Optimism, Protection & Gratitude
Indian Agate promotes enthusiasm, joy, and an optimistic outlook on life. It brings comfort to the idea of growing old and helps to develop feelings of gratitude for all that is and will be. Indian Agate is a very protective stone and it has been used for thousands of years to ward off psychic attacks, misfortune, and negative energy. Its vibration transmits serenity and inner peace, while it also helps to establish a stronger sense of self.
Tree of Life
The Tree of Life symbol represents our personal development, uniqueness, and individual beauty. Just as the branches of a tree strengthen and grow upwards to the sky, we too grow stronger, striving for greater knowledge, wisdom, and new experiences as we move through life.
