A mala is a set of beads commonly used by Hindus and Buddhists for keeping count while reciting, chanting, or mentally repeating a mantra or the name or names of a deity. They are sacred and beautiful and can be worn as a necklace or wrapped around your wrist multiple times. Malas are made with 108 beads and a guru bead. They can be made with fewer beads, such as 18, 27, or 54, which would require the user to make several rotations to complete their full meditation. The number 108 has spiritual significance as it is believed that we have 108 lines of energy in our bodies which converge to form the anahata, or the heart chakra.
This exquisite mala is made with 6mm Howlite, Dendritic Opal, and Clear Quartz beads. The guru is made out of Pearl with beautiful a beautiful silver wrap. The mala is strung on white nylon thread and is hand knotted between each stone.
Howlite is a calming stone. It can help calm an overactive mind while also strengthening memory and stimulating the desire for knowledge. It teaches patience and helps release stress and anger.
Dendritic Opal is opal with fern and moss embedded in it. It is a stone that is highly beneficial for self-evaluations, in the sense that they help reorganize and regroup a person’s thoughts and emotions. You can use the stone to regain some perspective so that you can better judge right from wrong. Another very important benefit of Dendritic Opal is that it enables you to be more accepting of others.
Clear Quartz absorbs, stores, releases, and regulates energy and is excellent at unblocking it as well. It works at a vibrational level and can be attuned to the specific energy requirements of the person using it. It cleanses the body and the soul and raises your energy to the highest.
Pearls are the ultimate symbol for wisdom. Valued for their calming effects, pearls represent serenity, while being able to strengthen valuable relationships and convey a sense of safety. Pearls also symbolize purity, as well as integrity and loyalty.
