|Availability:||Out of stock|
(Handmade = Dimensions may Vary slightly) Length between 19’’ and 25’’ + 4’’ Tassel + 8mm Beads. Amethyst is known for its calming effects as well as protecting against stress and negative energy. It is connected to the 3rd eye, the chakra of intuition, the Crown chakra which controls the mental energy, and finally the Etheric body (8th Chakra and above). Amethyst can be used for protection, purification and connecting to the Divine, as it creates an energetic shield to ward of negativity.
Mala beads are used in Buddhism, Hinduism and in spiritual, meditative and prayer practices. They are similar to the Catholic practice of prayer beads. Traditionally there are 108 prayer beads plus one bead will often be added to bring the mala together - this last bead is known as the "Guru bead". Malas are created in groups of 27 prayer beads - so a mala with just 27 beads is used to attain spiritual progress. Hold the mala with one hand, draping it across the other, so that your fingers are on the beads. Take a breath, exhale, say your mantra (prayer, intention statement), move to the next bead and repeat. Sometimes people will just do the breath, with no mantra.
