I spent most of today trying to purchase a different mala bead made out of Aventurine and the transaction simply could NOT go through. I tried multiple ways, and numerous times, and even called and spoke live to Paypal. It ended up that I would have needed to get a Money Order or be treated by an awesome friend (which may still happen), however, I found these and love how they wrap around the wrist so easily, are loose and still have the potential of adding my own Tree of Life charm on it. I’m going to learn how to do this, and add an attachable piece to the entire mala. This could be the beginning of a new journey, and perhaps an extra source of income if I go all the way!
Here is the Tree of Life charm I found as well:
The reason I am so passionate about this is because my health is going through a transition and is in need of support and healing at the time. The more stones for healing my stomach and immune system situation the better!

What’s totally amazing is I found this in my book; Crystal Workbook; The Spiritual, Healing, Transformational & Metaphysical Properties Of Crystals and Healing Stones, by Sheril Berkovitch. This is SO perfect; maybe better than the other anyway (especially if I can figure out how to get the Tree of Life on there):

108 Bead Japa Mala or Mala Necklace (Meditation Beads)
Mala beads can be worn and/or used for meditation. A mala is a string of 108 beads with one bead as the summit bead called a ‘sumeru’. When used for meditation they can aid in focusing by helping to keep the mind from wondering and helping to keep one from falling asleep. It is important that if a mala is used to count mantras, the mantra be remembered with sincerity, devotion, feeling and full attention. There are many, many reasons as to why there are 108 beads. Here are a few of my favorite:
-In traditional Buddhist thought, people are said to have 108 afflictions or klesas. There are six senses (sight, sound, smell, taste, touch, and consciousness) multiplied by three reactions (positive, negative, or indifference) making 18 “feelings.” Each of these feelings can be either “attached to pleasure or detached from pleasure” making 36 “passions”, each of which may be manifested in the past, present, or future. All the combinations of all these things makes a total of 108, which are represented by the beads in the ojuzu.
-There are said to be 108 earthly desires in mortals.
-There are said to be 108 lies that humans tell.
-There are said to be 108 human delusions or forms of ignorance.
-The diameter of the Sun is 108 times the diameter of the Earth. The distance from the Sun to the Earth is 108 times the diameter of the Sun.
-The average distance of the Moon from the Earth is 108 times the diameter of the Moon.
-Some say there are 108 styles of meditation.
How to use:
The mala is traditionally held in the right hand and used in two ways –
In one method, the mala is hanging between the thumb and the ring (third) finger. The middle (second) finger is used to rotate the mala by one bead towards oneself with each repetition of the mantra.
In the other method, the mala is hanging on the middle finger, with the thumb used to rotate the mala just as explained – one bead at a time.
Either way, the index finger is never used to touch the mala.
- Index Finger (Jupiter Finger): Wisdom. Knowledge. Prosperity
- Middle Finger (Saturn Finger): Patience.
- Ring Finger (Sun Finger): Health. Vitality. Strengthen the Nervous System.
- Little Finger (Mercury Finger): Communication. Intelligence.” http://www.dailycupofyoga.com/2011/04/27/how-to-use-cleanse-and-store-mala-beads/
“Hindu tradition holds that the correct way to use a mala is with the right hand, with the thumb flicking one bead to the next, and with the mala wrapped over the middle finger. Generally do not use the index finger as in ancient times it was thought use of the index finger was bad mannered and also facilitates karma.
Buddhists generally hold the mala in the left hand. The first bead is held between the index finger and thumb, and with each count the thumb pulls another bead in place over the index finger. After completing a full circuit of the mala, the practitioner flips the mala around 180 degrees. Continuing over the guru bead is like crossing your teacher.” http://mala-beads.50webs.com/aboutmalas.html
The mala may coil on the floor with the hand resting on the right knee or used with the hand concealed in the mala bag.
The practice begins at the summit bead (sumeru) and continues around the loop until the summit is reached again. The summit bead is never passed over. So if you plan to do more than 1 round, the mala is turned around to proceed again in the reverse direction.
Whenever the mala is taken up, it automatically conditions the mind to the meditative state. The mala that you use for Mantra Japa meditation should not be exhibited and is best kept privately in a special mala bag.
