How to choose your mala
Are you trying to connect with your perfect set of mala beads, but don’t know where to start? It’s a beautiful process, and we’re here to help.
It’s important to know that a mala represents something different to each person. It can be a tool for meditation. A reminder of an intention. A piece that inspires you. A beautiful manifestation of a feeling. Whatever it means to you, don’t judge or compare. Embrace your calling, and let it guide you in your choice.
While there is no wrong way to choose your mala, we have a few questions to help you on your journey.
1) What are you drawn to?
We often tell people, the mala that you're drawn to first is the one you're meant to have. It truly can be that simple. Don't resist the ease. Embrace it. Allow yourself to surrender and be lead by your heart.
Once you find yourself eyeing a particular mala, get curious. Read the intention and meaning. We bet it will be exactly what you are needing in that moment.
2) What are you trying to manifest?
All of our mala beads carry their own intention. When searching for your perfect beads, we recommend you ask “What is my intention? What am I trying to manifest? Am I looking to cultivate more love in my life? More abundance? More strength?”
Each gemstone carries a different intention and healing quality. Learn more here.
3) Will you be meditating or manifesting? (Or both)
Will you use the beads for meditation? Or do you simply want a daily reminder of your intentions?
Our mala beads are suitable for both. If you are looking specifically for meditation, that's wonderful! All of our necklaces are hand knotted, helping you to practice japa meditation (where you turn each bead in your fingers and repeat your mantra).
All of our malas use a reflection of 108. Either 108 or 216. We recommend using the 108 bead malas to start a practice.
