Mindful Necessities - Abacus Mala

Meditation with these malas is truly beautiful. 

Every bead is lovingly individually hand-knotted. The guru beads are solid sterling silver and feature either a message or symbol; the tassels are hand-made of hemp/silk.

This mala is made with beautiful wood beads that are made to slide up and down on a fine silver chain to assist in counting.

Each mala comes with 108 quality wood beads divided into four sliding sections by four guru beads, and a silk/linen tassel.

The Abacus Mala comes in 8mm (36”) or 10mm (54”) wood beads. 

The rose wood is accompanied by kyanite gems.
The dark tiger wood is accompanied by kyanite gems.
The bayong wood is accompanied by raw ruby gems.

A mala is an ancient meditation tool; it can be used to count and follow your breath, chants or prayers. It helps us quiet the mental chatter, focus and bring attention to our minds and have a keen appreciation for all that is. Like anything, with repeated use it takes on the memory of one’s intention, thus becoming sacred. When a dharma (translated loosely as the way of natural order) tool becomes sacred it helps us find our inner peace. We are never too young or too old to be still, to meditate, pray or find our inner calm. Wearing a mala is a way to add beauty and meaning to your life, and is a functional and beautiful reminder to become more mindful.

Mindful Necessities create contemplative jewellery of message, meaning and purpose. Engraving words of inspiration into semi and precious metals which can be used as grounding agents or touch stones. In a world overrun by sensory overload, its easy to forget our 'whole' self.
