Mala Beads & Meditation
Beads & Meditation
Feed Your Need For Bead
Meditation positively affects the brain and mood and practitioners report feeling relaxed, having better-focused attention, and enhanced self-awareness. Consider the pose Malasana, commonly cued as “Yogi Squat.” The yogi squats and brings the hands to the heart, representing a single bead on the mala necklace, the yogi is small, individual, and unique. Just like each of the beads that are intimately connected to all the others through the string of the mala, the yogi is intimately connected to all other beings...
This is the reminder of this pose: though individually we are special, together we are stronger!
Meditation With Japa Mala
Similar to praying with rosary beads, meditating with a Japa mala has been shown to help slow respiration and encourage well-being. Repeating the mantra of your choosing redirects the mind from daily obsessions and introduces positive thought patterns. Similar devices have been used for generations in a variety of spiritual traditions including Buddhism, Hinduism, Jainism, Sikhism, Christianity, or Islam.
