"May the sun bring you new energy by day, may the moon softly restore you by night, may the rain wash away your worries, may the breeze blow new strength into your being, may you walk gently through the world and know its beauty all the days of your life." — Apache Blessing
mala beads A mala is a string of 108 beads with one bead as the summit bead called a 'sumeru'. It is a tool used to keep your mind on the meditation practice. Malas are generally made from different materials such as tulsi (basil) wood, sandal wood, rudraksh seeds or crystal. Each type of material has certain properties which subtly affect the subconscious mind of the practitioner.
"Focus your mind on 'I Am', which is pure and simple being. You are Here and Now only. Contemplate what it is to be fully 'Here' and fully 'Now'. For this you must leave all else. Stay only as here-now Conscious presence. This is Heart. This is Self." ~ Mooji

You can hold this mudra when visiting places having dark past. Like union of masculine and feminine, this mudra helps in creating balance and grounding.

Mala beads are a wonderful way of meditating on a mantra or word. Sit in a comfy position and hold the beads gently in your hand. With each repetition of the mantra or word pull a bead until you have gone all the way round. You could focus on gratitude,peace,love. Sometimes I go around thanking everybody and everything - each bead representing a different thank you.
