This splendid mala prayer bead necklace is carefully handmade with 108 natural Lapis Lazuli and Rhodonite gemstone beads. Your mala can be worn as a necklace or used for meditation. The beads are 8 mm and the mala is hand-knotted. Length is about 38.5 inches (98 cm).
Lapis Lazuli activates the psychic centers at the Third Eye, and balances the energies of the Throat Chakra. The Brow Chakra, also called the Third Eye, is the center of our perception and command. It directs our sight and everyday awareness of the world. As a protection stone, Lapis Lazuli protects from psychic and physical attacks. It can be used in protection grids, worn, or carried to bring these protection energies.
On the emotional level, Rhodonite is one of the strongest crystals for clearing psychic wounds in the heart or mind. Rhodonite is the Stone of Forgiveness and it will help you to let go of any pain from a past relationship with an attitude of love and forgiveness. Rhodonite helps to balance the emotions and calm impatience. Rhodonite can enhance power in those who have truly altruistic intentions.
Malas are used for keeping count while reciting, chanting, or mentally repeating a mantra or the name or names of a deity. This sādhanā (practice) is known in Sanskrit as japa. Malas are typically made with 18, 27, 54 or 108 beads.
