Mala Mantra Maker
Introducing Mala Mantra Maker: Mala’s are spiritual beads strung on a thread of cotton or string, 108 beads all together. Historically the 108 beads represent the 108 names for god. One large bead called the Guru bead meets the bottom with a tassel.
There are many reinterpretations of the beads. I see the thread as the life-force holding our mind, body and soul together and the beads representing the hopes and dreams of our lives; whilst we live out our life on the physical plane.
Making Mala Beads In India
When I was in India early this year (now last year as it was January 2017) I visited Auroville, in Tamil Nadu near Pondicherry and I attended a workshop to make my own Mala beads. We were given a piece of A4 paper and after a meditation, we painted or drew on our paper – writing messages – having the freedom to express whatever we wanted onto it. I loved it. I put in all my hopes and dreams of 2017 and looking back now I can see a lot of it has come true for me!
After making the painting we then drew lines across it and cut it all up into strips and with glue and cocktail sticks we slowly curled them into beads. Later we strung them together to make a bracelet or necklace – depending on the time it took to make the beads during that class.
My bracelet held all the energy and wishes I had to create a new life in 2017 and to find myself somewhere new to live in the world, at the time when I had absolutely no idea what life would bring – a blank canvas.
I have carried this bracelet on my journey and worn it from time to time. I still carry the extra strips to make up a Mala necklace – when I get some spare time which has always been an intention but never quite materialised. Last month I found it again and started wearing it and felt really happy to be wearing it and remembering my wishes for 2017 – then I suddenly lost it and when I found it, it had gone through the washing machine – all washed up. It’s funny as now I am starting to make Mala’s myself and to share the powerful energy of wearing a Mala and repeating Mantras.
I was lucky 2017 brought me to a place where I felt at home in Bali and I lived there for 8 months last year. It was there I had the inspiration to share my love of Mala’s and the together with the power of mantra, to create my range of mala’s and I have called it Mala Mantra Maker.
Mala Mantra Maker created in Bali
My first range I made in Bali. I wanted to inspire people to connect with mantra through my mala making, not only to inspire women but men too. As once you know the power of using mantra in your life you will feel your own intrinsic harmony with your life. I use semi-precious stones that hold an uplifting energy and the power lies in the wearing of them.
Welcome to: http://www.malamantramaker.com – the website is coming soon!
I am also making them in pairs so you can buy one for yourself and give one to your loved one as a special soul gift 💝
The range will be available from March 2018, if you are interested in finding out more join my mailing list and you will be notified when the range is complete.
