Whether you like to repeat mantras or meditate in your own chosen way, mala beads can offer a valuable point of focus, and aid in creating a peaceful atmosphere for your personal restorative moments. You don't need to be following any specific spiritual tradition in order to benefit from including a gemstone mala in your life.
I draw artistic inspiration for these contemporary meditation beads from the ancient decorative Buddhist malas from Tibet that were often given as gifts to Chinese courts and called "Chinese court necklaces". I match the stones and crystals carefully to create an energetic combination in the mala that will benefit its chosen keeper in an individual way. All of the malas I create are one-of-a-kind.
Whilst these malas are made with Tibetan Buddhist bead count (108 beads), all Spirit Carrier malas are dedicated to the Highest Good of All – you may bless the mala for your own purpose to use it in your own personal way of meditation, in your yoga practice or when working on your own affirmations.
A NOTE ABOUT SPIRIT CARRIER MALA SIZES
The gemstone malas most usually come in three sizes depending on the counter bead diameter, either 8 mm, 10 mm or 12 mm. The counter bead size of 8 mm makes for a shorter, lighter weight mala. Together with the medium size of 10 mm these two sizes are the most suitable to be worn as necklaces if this is your preference. The largest counter bead size of 12 mm makes for a longer, heavier mala and is most suited for sitting meditation. Occasionally I also make malas in different sizes, for example a full length 'miniature mala' where the counter beads are only 4 mm in diameter, very delicate and ornate. Spirit Carrier mala bracelet usually have 8 mm counter beads, making them suitable to be worn on wrists up to 7".
