It is said that Rhodonite is a stone of compassion, an emotional balancer that clears away emotional wounds and scars from the past, and that nurtures love. It stimulates, clears and activates the heart. Rhodonite grounds energy, balances yin-yang, and aids in achieving one's highest potential.
It is said that Obsidian's energycreates a protective shield that deflects negativity and repels attempts of others to assert powerover us. It helps us to uncover our unique skills and hidden talents whilst releasing blockages to our spiritual and personal growth.
Each Mala is an individual creation by myself. No two are the same. Some may look alike but, due to the nature of natural stone and wood, each bead is unique thus making your special creation one of a kind.
Mala is usually made of 108 beads and a guru bead. This enhances the practice of japa meditation (also called mantra meditation) by keeping count of the number of times a mantra is chanted. Malas can be made with fewer beads, such as 18, 27 and 54.
The number of beads in a mala is associated with the aim of japa. A mala with 27 beads is used for attaining spiritual progress, while a mala with 108 beads is used to achieve fulfillment. The number, 108, has spiritual significance as it is believed that 108 energy lines converge to form anahata, the heart chakra.
One way to Meditate with your Mala is to Sit straight, keeping the spine erect. Keep the eyes closed. Hold the mala in the right hand. Let it rest on the second and third fingers. Use the thumb to bring down each bead starting with the Guru bead while chanting your chosen mantra.
Ultimately, the mala becomes what the wearer wants it to be. You fill the energy of the beads and gemstones, with your thoughts, your hopes, and dreams.
