on our mind...

Om, Shanti, Shanti, Shanti

We are happy to welcome Mala Collective to our Jiyu family. Jiyu means freedom, and what that really means to us is having a peaceful mind, body and spirit and mala beads compliment this belief system. The journey of Mala Collective started on the lush island of Bali, Indonesia.  It’s where founders Ashley and Matt first discovered the beauty and healing qualities of mala beads.
 
 Simply stated, mala beads are a set of beads that has traditionally been used in prayer and meditation often called prayer beads.
 
 
Some malas have different counts. Ours have 108, as that's a very traditional and sacred number.  They are also hand-knotted between each seed and gemstone to help aid in meditation.
There is no wrong way to choose your mala and you don't have to be religious. The mala you end up with is the one you are meant to have. It's a reflection of your intentions. Of what you want to manifest. Of what you want to feel. 
 
 
All of the gemstones carry different intentions and qualities. Looking at the gemstones is a great place to start. Here are what some of the gemstones mean....
 
 Abundance — Jasper
 Love — Rose Quartz
 Spiritually/Tranquility/Peace — Amethyst
 Strength — Lava
 Fearlessness — Onyx
 Grounding — Smokey Quartz
 Patience — Howlite
 Intuition —Prehnite
Adventure — Amazonite

The Mala Collective family in Bali is proud to spread the ideals of peace through authentic mala beads. All of their jewelry is handmade, fair trade, authentic, and blessed before leaving the island. The growing team in Indonesia receives fair trade wages, and also benefit from profit sharing from world-wide sales. Not only are they employed in a job that provides them a healthy living, but they are also doing a job in which they truly believe they are spreading peace around the world.

If you choose to meditate on your mala, be patient and kind to yourself. 
Remember mala beads embody calmer mind, body, and spirit, no matter your reason for turning to them.
