A mala, derived from the Hindi word japamala, is simply a strand of prayer beads.
The use of prayer beads as a spiritual practice spans thousands of years and every culture.
Using short, simple prayers or statements of spiritual Truth; spoken as you hold each bead on the strand, can focus, and therefore, calm your mind. This repetition can also regulate your breathing, which can help lower anxiety and stress.
Our mala prayer beads are finger malas exclusively designed and intentionally created for ShopDivineOnline. The finger loop allows you to hold the beads in one hand and move from one bead to the next with the same hand, or the other hand, as you choose.
Each mala is made of a different gemstone with unique meanings and metaphysical properties. They come boxed and include an affirmation that is an extension of the gemstone's properties. Also included is the definition of mala and an explanation of how to use the finger malas.
In addition, these finger malas have a repeating pattern of 3 beads. Three is the number that symbolizes the wholeness of the Divine. In the Christian tradition, this wholeness is spoken of as the Holy Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. In New Thought traditions, this is referred to as Spirit, Soul, and Body: Spirit of the Mind of God. Soul is the Creative Medium with which the Mind creates. And Body refers to the things It creates (the world of effects).
