Mama Malas designs mala beads and intentional accessories for mothers who want to be fully present, intentional and mindful with their kids. Mala beads are meditation necklaces that are used to recite an affirmation or mantra, and are a tangible reminder of your intentions.
We started making mala beads because we believe that setting aside time daily to meditate and set your intentions is the most important thing you can do when striving to live an intentional and authentic life.
It is our job as mothers to be our children’s anchor, the calm enduring presence that can ground them during the turbulent moments of life. But as mothers we need an anchor as well, to ground us, remind us of our intentions, and bring us back to our center so we can remain present and intentional with those we love.
Mama Malas are an anchor for you during both the beautiful and trying moments of Motherhood, offering a tangible reminder of your desire to live a fully present, intentional and balanced life.
Designed with healing stones to support you your intentions, each Mama Mala has been handcrafted with the intention of supporting you on your journey of Motherhood.
Each set of mala beads is made up of 108 +1 beads since it is said that our bodies contain 108 major physical and subtle energy channels that reach the heart chakra. By meditating with your mala beads and chanting or listening to a mantra 108 times the energy from the mantra permeates both the physical and energetic body. The 109th bead, also called the ‘guru’ bead, signifies the beginning and end of your meditation practice. The larger guru bead holds the intention of your mala.
To meditate with your Mama Malas, begin by setting an intention for what you want to cultivate in your life. Starting at your guru bead, repeat your chosen mantra once for each sandalwood or rudraksha bead on your mala until you come back around to your guru bead. Take a moment at the end to express gratitude for all of the abundance already in your life.
You can also hold your mala during a silent meditation and let it absorb the peace of the practice. This is our favourite way to meditate in the morning. Play your favourite mantra (here is an awesome album) and just breathe and listen. It only takes a few minutes, but the results are beyond measure.
If your day starts to get off track, hold onto your Mama Mala to soak up its peaceful energy and remember your intentions.
