Spiritual Malas

Malas, or prayer beads, are powerful tools that can help to
enhance and deepen your meditation practice

Mala beads are an effective tool to help deepen ones spiritual practice, but you don't need be religious to use them, you will still be able to appreciate the benefits of using them to help with meditation and personal development.

 

Mala Beads consist of 108 beads made from seeds, wood, gemstones, or other materials on a cord. There is a larger bead on the end, called the Guru or Meru bead, that holds all the energy of your prayers.

The Origins and History of Mala Beads

The origin of Malas beads lie in Indian traditions from around 3000 years ago. They were used in spiritual practice and rituals to help users gain enlightenment. These practices continue to this day. This practice has spread into different cultures, and Catholics have their own version in the form of prayer beads, wich consist 0f 54 beads, half the amount of mala beads. The Mala is used mainly in Hinduism and Buddhism, and are also known as Buddhist prayer beads, and are an important tool for counting breaths and mantras during prayer and meditation.

 

There are 108 beads in a mala, and one larger Guru or Meru Bead. In traditional malas the guru stone is included in the 108 beads, but now as the guru bead has become larger, this is often additional to the 108 beads. 108 is an important sacred number in both Buddhism and Hinduism. It is believed that there are 108 energy lines in the body that connect the heart chakra with the Divine. Mala beads can also be made with 54 or 27 beads, which is some instances may be more practical than a full strand of 108.

Below are a selection of Spiritual Mala Beads made by myself in a variety of gemstones and colours. Each one is individual in design, made with prayer , love & Reiki. Bespoke Spiritual Malas can also be made to order if you would like something even more personal, or in a specific colour or gemstone.

Personal Mala Beads

 

If you are drawn to a specific gemstone or colour you will find it easier to create a deeper connection to your Mala beads. You may be drawn to gemstone beads, or more natural beads made from seeds or wood.

Different stones have their own properties and energies to help you achieve various states and will work in harmony with your own energy, helping to enhance your spiritual practice. 

It is important to take your time when choosing the perfect Mala for your needs, but you will know it's the right one on seeing it.  

Which is the Right Color for You?

Color plays an important role in the choice of your Mala beads.

Black is the colour for protection. 

 

Brown has connections to nature and the earth and is a great colour for grounding and stability. It is associated with the Earth Star Chakra to help us feel nurtured and loved. 

 

Red is considered a lucky color that symbolises power, and will help to build confidence. It is related to the Bas Chakra so will encourage grounding as well as bringing passion into your life. 

 

Orange is the colour of creativity and the birthing of new ideas. Related to the Sacral Chakra it is nurturing and helps one to become more creative and productive.

 

Yellow encourages creativity and can bring a clarity of mind. Yellow relates to the Solar Plexus which brings the energy of the sun. It brings inspiration and encourages self-expression.

 

Green also relates to nature, but also to the heart chakra. It encourages personal growth and development. 

 

Turquoise brings healing on all levels and is both grounding and enlightening. Associated with the Thymus Chakra, or Higher Heart Chakra, this colour encourages self-love on a higher level, and can help with the perfect functioning of the physical body.

 

Blue is brings peace and relaxation and can balance the emotions. Lighter blues relate to the Throat chakra so can help with communication, and dark blues relate to the Third Eye Chakra, which can help with psychic vision.

 

Purple is one of the most spiritual colors and connects one to the realm of sleep and unconscious states. Purple relates to the Third eye and the Crown Chakra and can help to open psychic channels and spiritual connections. 

 

Pink represents peace, love and compassion. Pink is also connected to the Heart Chakra and encourages healing through self-love and forgiveness.

 

White represents purity and connections with the Divine Energies. It is related to the Crown Chakra and can help to receive clear messages and downloads from the Higher Realms.

 

Clear represents clarity and also connections with Divine Energies and Higher frequencies. It is associated with the Sould Star Chakra to bring us stronger connections with our Higher Selves and Krishna or Christ Consciousness. 

 

How to Use Mala Beads

When using your beads for spiritual practice it is always best to hold them in your hands. If simply meditating you can wear them around your neck, but for prayers and mantras they should be held. Begin with one of the beads closest to the larger Guru bead, holding it in your fingers as you say your first mantra or prayer. Now move your fingers along to the next bead and repeat your mantra again. Do this for all the beads in turn on your Mala until you come full circle back to your Guru bead, and 108 mantras or prayers have been recited. The Guru bead holds all the energy of your prayers, and in time becomes very powerful. You can chant the mantra out loud or internally if you prefer. This has just as much power as the spoken mantra, however the vibration created from speaking your mantra aids your meditation as it helps to alter your brain waves to encourage a meditative state.

Alternatively, you may not yet feel comfortable or proficient at reciting mantras, so you can use one bead for every breath you take during your meditation. This will help you to focus on your breathing, helping you to attain a relaxed meditative state of mind.

 

My journey With Mala Prayer Beads

I began my journey with Spiritual Malas around 18 years ago, through my Tibetan Bon Po spiritual practice. Using Malas for prayer by reciting mantras is a large part of the spiritual practice. 

My first mala was gifted to me by a Buddhist from Nepal, but shortly after I decided to make my own, so that it was more meaningful in my spiritual practice. I made a rose quartz and lotus seed mala for my main spiritual practice, and a smaller mala in blue goldstone, moonstone (opalite) and lapis lazuli, both of which I still use today. From there I began to make malas for my friends too. At first I made the malas with the traditional sliding abacus style, but then progressed onto knotting as this made for a more attractive mala. I take great pride and pleasure in creating beautiful Spiritual Malas for others.
