WHAT IS A MALA?
More than just beautiful adornment, malas are powerful and symbolic tools for your personal yoga & meditation practice. These strands of 108 beads are traditionally used for reflection and prayer. They combine gemstones imbued with potent energies and sacred meaning to infuse your practice.
There are many theories behind the significance of the number 108, which has long been considered a sacred number in Hinduism. The number 1 stands for God, the universe or your own highest truth; 0 stands for emptiness and humility in spiritual practice; and 8 stands for infinity and timelessness.
How to Use Mala Beads for Meditation
1. Choose a spot and sit comfortably with your spine straight and your eyes closed. Take a few deep breaths to center and align yourself with your intention. 2. If you have one, use a mantra for this practice, chanting aloud or silently. 3. Hold your mala in your right hand, draped between your middle and index fingers. Starting at the top bead, use your thumb to count each smaller bead, pulling it toward you as you recite your mantra. Do this 108 times, traveling around the mala, until you once again reach the top bead. 4. If you want to continue the meditation, instead of passing over the top bead, simply reverse direction and begin again.
Jaspers have been revered by ancient peoples and civilizations throughout the world as sacred and powerful stones of protection, for both the physical and spiritual realm. They were known as the “rain bringers” and nurturers, healers of the spirit and stones of courage and wisdom.
To the ancient and medieval world, the most highly prized was Green Jasper, a rare, single-colored variety ranging from pale mint green to a deep tea or olive green. Wear or carry mint jasper as a rubbing stone to ward off negative energy, bring reassurance, and to help restore inner calm.
Why we choose gold filled vs. gold plated:
Gold filled features an actual layer of gold pressure-bonded to another metal (in our case, sterling silver!) Gold filled is not to be confused with gold plating as filled literally has 100% more gold than gold plating. Gold filled is much more valuable and tarnish resistant. It does not flake off, rub off or turn colors.
