How To Meditate With Your Mala Beads

To meditate with your mala beads simply start at the beginning of the necklace, hold the first bead to the right of the guru stone and take one full slow breath, or repeat your mantra, as you draw the bead toward you. Continue with each bead to calm your nervous system and bring you into the present moment.

Mala bead meditation is one of the easiest ways to start a sustainable meditation practice because they provide a distraction from the “monkey mind” that can make starting a meditation practice so challenging.

You don’t need to be sitting in lotus pose on a meditation cushion for 20 minutes a day to receive the benefits of meditation. 

Lasting benefits come from consistent practice, even if it’s only for five minutes a day.

So when you find myself at school pick up a few minutes early, or notice the kids are quietly playing at the park, you can fit in a quick meditation and continue through your day with a renewed sense of calm and presence.

Take a moment for yourself

Mala beads help you enter a meditative state as you slowly trace the beads with your fingers and connect with the energy of the stones. Delicate enough for everyday wear, our mala beads make it easy to fit meditation into your day, no matter where you are.

As Seen In


"This mala is absolutely gorgeous and would make any mama feel powerful. The onyx is so strong and grounding, the sandalwood smells lovely, and I love that there is a little bit of rose quartz too! It’s nice to hold in your hand when you need to ground or calm down, and when you wear it, you feel like you can tackle anything! "
