Amethyst Mala Beads~JMALAAME
Individually Knotted 108 Bead Amethyst Mala Beads~JMALAAME. A Japa mala or mala (Sanskrit: meaning garland[) is a string of prayer beads commonly used by Hindus, Buddhists and some Sikhs for the spiritual practice known in Sanskrit as japa. It is usually made from 108 beads, though other numbers are also used. Malas are used for keeping count while reciting, chanting, or mentally repeating a mantra or the name or names of a deity. These resemble the practice of the use of a Rosary in Catholicism. Mantras are typically repeated hundreds or even thousands of times. The mala is used so that one can focus on the meaning or sound of the mantra rather than counting its repetitions. One repetition is usually said for each bead. When arriving at the head bead, one turns the mala around and then goes back in the opposing direction. There are typically knots between each bead. This makes using the mala easier as the beads will not be so tight on the string when you use them. 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.
