Amethyst Mala Beads~JMALAAME

$ 35.00


Individually Knotted 108 Bead Amethyst Mala Beads~JMALAAME. One doesn’t have to be religious to wear or use a mala. It is important though to understand its use and respect its significance. The beads are used in japa mala practice to recite mantras in meditation. A full cycle of 108 repetitions is counted on the mala so the practitioner can focus on the sounds, vibration and meaning of what is being said. A simple and common example of a Sanskrit mantra often chanted at the end of a yoga class would be: om shanti shanti shanti, which is a calling out to connect us with inner peace. The 109th bead that hangs at the bottom of a mala is called either the sumeru, bindu, stupa or guru bead. It is never counted among the repetitions but used as a marker for a start and end for a cycle. Amethyst is said to be a "stone of spirituality and contentment". It encourages conscious connection with our Higher Self and Divine Mind, allowing understanding of the spiritual lessons of the situations you have created to become apparent. It also transmutes lower energies( rage, jealousy, fear) into higher energies of patience, tolerance, self acceptance, faith. Amethyst bestows stability, strength, invigoration, and peace; the peace being the perfect peace which was present prior to birth. Because of the calming effect it is an excellent stone for meditation. It promotes fairness and flexibility in decisions and enhances the ability to manage responsibilities. It helps sooth ones temperament, and helps ones business prosper. Amethyst aids in opening ones mind to new ideas, new emotional attitudes, and new depths of spirituality. It is said to encourage sobriety, and is helpful for freeing one from addictive personalities. The message of amethyst is to pay attention to messages your Higher Self may be sending you, maybe a new book, new job, new relationship-with another, with yourself, or with your spirituality, and to be open to Divine guidance. Size varies 7mm-8mm beads.
