Mala beads are a tangible reminder of your intentions and desires as well as a tool to enhance your meditation practice and connect you to something larger than yourself.
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 and accent stones hold the intention of your mala and support you with the healing properties of the stones.
We started making mala beads because we know it can be hard to feel like you are really taking action towards the life you want, instead of just talking about it. We also know 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 created to be 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.If you are interested in learning more about using your malas in your meditation practice, check out our article here.
