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.

Tiger's Eye carries the energies of a combination of Sun and Earth elements, making it a powerful stone of both grounding and energizing vibrations. It gives you the courage to step out of your comfort zone and take action to achieve your goals. It amplifies the energies of other crystals as well as your personal intentions. Tiger's Eye can also help you to feel confident and self-empowered, reducing the need for approval from other people.
Solar Plexus Chakra
This Tiger's Eye Mala has a beautiful pendant symbolizing the solar plexus chakra, or Manipura in Sanskrit, which translates to, “city of jewels.” Located in the upper belly at the diaphragm, the plexus chakra acts as the center of personal power. This chakra provides a source of personal power and relates to self-esteem, warrior energy, and the power of transformation.
Malas are commonly finished with a tassel, often made of silk or cotton. The tassel represents the connection to spirit or your highest truth. Tassels are not only beautiful and meaningful, but they can also serve a secondary purpose of diffusing your favorite essential oils.
