Mala beads are a strand of 108 beads used for keeping count during mantra meditations. Using a mala is simple and anyone can do it. In the beginning, you should clarify the intention of your practice and choose your Mantra or affirmation (such as "I am enough" or "Excellence does not require perfection" or "I release all negative energy"). Then, find a comfortable space and sit quietly in a cross legged position. Close your eyes and observe the speed and depth of your natural breath. Begin to breathe deeply and bring your focus and attention onto your mantra or affirmation. Next, hang the first mala bead gently on the middle or ring finger of your right hand. Place your thumb on the guru bead (bead at the very bottom of the necklace) and begin reciting your mantra. At the end of the mantra push the mala bead away with your thumb and move onto the next bead for another round. Continue until you reach the last bead. If you wish to do another round of mantras or affirmations, do not skip over the guru bead. Instead, turn the mala around and move in the opposite direction. The tassel on the mala represents enlightenment. It also symbolizes our oneness and connection to the divine as the strands combine together into one.
