Venus Rising Mala
Mala beads have been worn and used for thousands of years by yogis and spiritual seekers from all over the world. A mala necklace is an ancient modality used for prayer, meditation and ultimately, for a focused intention. The word mala in Sanskrit means meditation garland, and originally, mala beads were used in a special style of meditation called Japa, which means to recite.
Traditionally, mala necklaces have 108 beads because the number 108 is a very auspicious and spiritually significant number. Throughout history, the number 108 has held multi-dimensional meaning, manifesting itself in our universe in many more ways than we realize. Some examples are:
Sun and the Earth: The diameter of the Sun is 108x the diameter of the Earth. The distance from the Sun to the Earth is 108x the diameter of the Sun.
Heart Chakra: Chakras are the intersections of energy lines, and there are said to be a total of 108 energy lines converging to form the heart chakra. One of them, the sushumna, leads to the crown chakra, and is said to be the path to self-realization.
1, 0, and 8: Many believe that the number 1 stands for God, or the higher truth, 0 stands for completeness in spiritual practice, and 8 stands for infinity.
Planets and Houses: In astrology, there are 12 houses and 9 planets. 12 x 9 = 108.
This Rose Quartz, Amethyst and Clear Quartz crystal mala necklace combines the power of the mala necklace with these 3 top stones.
Wear your Rose Quartz Mala Necklace in meditation or other spiritual practices, and repeat the affirmation or mantra of your choice 108 times as you touch each bead on the mala necklace. We like " My heart is open to the energy of love all around me."
