$ 35.00


Individually Knotted 108 Bead Lapis Mala Beads~JMALALAP. 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. Lapis Lazuli can open the third eye and improve psychic abilities, intuition, and dreamwork. It is said to guide one to the domain of the sacred texts, the akashic records, and provide the wisdom to understand this information. Lapis allows one to develop enhanced intuition and access spiritual guidance. Lapis is one of the greatest stones for enlightenment. It stimulates the higher faculties of the mind aiding creativity, objectivity, and clarity. It is also said to be  a stone of protection, contacting your spirit guardians. Lapis enables one to identify one’s gifts and talents. 9mm beads.
