Do you like the beautiful pearl necklaces that yogis and others use? Now you can learn how to make your own mala necklace, and how to add meaning to it.
A mala is a necklace - a string of pearls - a spiritual ornament. The mala is beautiful to look at and an aid for prayer and meditation. The purpose of the mala, besides being a necklace filled with memories and symbolism, is to guide you in your daily life and remind you of your spiritual life.
In this book by Monica Øien, she tells us about the symbolism, the craft and how to, inspiring you to make your very own dream necklaces. You are invited to add symbolism, shapes, moods, memories and colours in your mala necklace, and to add your own inner voice, your hopes and your intentions. It is said that the stones and colours that you are first drawn to are those you should make a mala out of. You can buy a mala kit, or you can choose your own pearls and charms for your mala. See if you can find something on the beach or amongst your childhood jewellery. You can use rings, earrings, amulets and other memories from your life as a mala.
