Mala Beads - African turquoise


Mantra:           My wisdom is growing. I am evolving to higher consciousness.

These gorgeous African turquoise beads have been created into a sacred strand of Mala beads. Mala beads are used for prayer, with a mantra recited at each of the beads. There are 108 beads in the strand, a sacred number used when creating mala beads. The master bead is a silver bead which I have created in remembrance of your unique self. There is a rosemary twig formed on the bead as is symbolic of remembrance. I have added an additional turquoise bead and clear quartz bead to further enhance the properties of this necklace. The master bead has been created as a clasp so the strand can be worn in multiple ways – layered around the neck or as a bracelet. The beads are strung on strong silk cord with a knot between each bead.

This precious strand was created in ceremony. Wear with reverence and connect to either the mantra provided or one that your have created that has significance for you.

Mala beads are also called prayer beads. The number 108 is significant in Vedic culture as it is viewed as a number of wholeness of existence. Every strand of Mala beads that we create have been energetically cleansed and hold my blessing. Once they arrive in your hands it is recommended that you activate them, set an intention and mantra that you can say each time your hand moves along the strand of beads. 

A mala piece is intended to serve as a reminder of your spiritual practice. While mala beads can be worn as a necklace or adornment (wearing a mala may reduce the life of the mala), simply having them nearby can serve as an edifying reminder of your commitment to spiritual practice.  

Whether you’re chanting out loud, whispering, or repeating a phrase silently, tracing the beads of the mala with your fingers can help you keep track of the japa. “Japa” translates to “muttering” in Sanskrit. Similar to praying with rosary beads, meditating with a japa mala has been shown to help slow respiration and encourage well-being. Repeating your mantra redirects the mind from daily obsessions, helping to ground you to the moment, to the prayer, to the power of your mantra and to the power of the gemstones.
