Choosing Your Mala

Mala beads are more than just jewellery...

They are powerful meditation tools that have been used for thousands of years in Hinduism and Buddhism religion. They encourage us to pause, breathe and realign with our deepest intentions. They motivate us to invest in moments of self-care and compassion. Mala beads represent something different or serve a different purpose for everyone. Whatever it means to you, let this feeling guide you.

There are a number of factors to consider when choosing a Mala and it may seem overwhelming to figure out where to start. While there is no right or wrong way to choose your Mala, here are a few things to consider on your journey to finding the perfect Mala for you.

The Beauty

Allow yourself to be drawn in by your Mala. You may feel this as an unexplainable attraction. Trust this feeling and let it guide you in your choice. It is often the Mala you are drawn to first that is the one you're meant to have.

Your Intention

Ask yourself some questions on what your intention is for your Mala. What do I want to create or cultivate in my life? What am I trying to manifest? What am I struggling with? When you are clear on your intention use this to guide your decision.

The Energy

Each gemstone that we use in our Mala beads is believed to emit its own special vibration and healing energy. Ensure this energy aligns with your intention. Take a look at our Gemstone page to learn more about Gemstones and their healing aspects.

Your Intuition

Most importantly, let your intuition guide you! Listen to your inner voice and trust your gut feeling. Allow yourself to be led with your heart. The more you trust your intuition, the stronger the connection you will have with your Mala.

Once you have chosen and received your Mala, it is best to activate your Mala to align it with your intentions and energy.

Remember, trust yourself, follow your heart. Namaste
