प्राण ~ PRANA ~ प्राण ~ When you own your breath, nobody can steal your peace

Laying on your back on the sandy beach....you gaze at the blue sky...your breathing relaxes...white clouds begin to swirl... and you become engaged in your thoughts... time slips away.....
In meditation we learn the art of mental cloud pushing.....not becoming attached to thoughts, and letting them float on by.

"Feelings come and go like clouds in a windy sky. Conscious breathing is my anchor."
~Thích Nhất Hạnh

********************


This life energy, prana, has been vividly invoked and described in Vedas. In Ayurveda, tantra and Tibetan medicine "praṇā vāyu" is the basic vāyu (wind, air) from which all the other vāyus arise.

Vāyus are:
Prāṇa :Beating of the heart and breathing. Prana enters the body through the breath and is sent to every cell through the circulatory system.

Apāna: Elimination of waste products from the body through the lungs and excretory systems.

Uḍāna: Sound production through the vocal apparatus, as in speaking, singing, laughing, and crying. Also it represents the conscious energy required to produce the vocal sounds corresponding to the intent of the being. Hence Samyama on udana gives the higher centers total control over the body.

Samāna:The digestion of food and cell metabolism (i.e. the repair and manufacture of new cells and growth). Samana also includes the heat regulating processes of the body. Auras are projections of this current. By meditational practices one can see auras of light around every being. Yogis who do special practises on samana can produce a blazing aura at will.

Vyāna: The expansion and contraction processes of the body, e.g. the voluntary muscular system

Pranayama is breath control and is one style of meditation I have learned. We all breathe... the way in which we breathe effects our nervous system...and breath is life!

Prana is the Sanskrit word for "life force". In yoga, Indian medicine, and martial arts, the term refers to a cosmic energy believed to come from the sun and connecting the elements of the universe. The universal principle of energy or force, responsible for the body's life, heat and maintenance, prana is the sum total of all energy that is manifest in the universe.

♥ What's the connection to breathing /prana , 108 beads and numerology?

This is a sacred and perfect number in Dharmic faiths, and as such crops up in various places. Malas, or rosaries, prayer beads, generally always have 108 beads that assist in the repetition of a mantra, as do the juzu or prayer bracelets of Zen priests.

Further, 108 is the product of 12 x 9 ; this represents the nine planets and the twelve months of the year. It is also a product of 4 x 27, symbolic of the four quarters of the Moon.

There is MORE significance to these figures - Pranayama yoga, the yoga of breath control, calculates that the human being needs to take 21,600 breathes in a 24-hour period ; therefore, the 12-hour "daylight" number of breaths is 10,800.

In regards to life force (prana) and energy, 108 has extended its influence to Oriental martial arts where, for example , one of the major disciplines associated with Karate, the Suparinpei , translates as "one hundred and eight" ; and there are 108 pressure points of the body.

"When the breath wanders the mind also is unsteady. But when the breath is calmed the mind too will be still, and the yogi achieves long life. Therefore, one should learn to control the breath." ~Svatmarama, Hatha Yoga Pradipika

"Inhale, and God approaches you. Hold the inhalation, and God remains with you. Exhale, and you approach God. Hold the exhalation, and surrender to God."
~Krishnamacharya



♥ Blue:

The symbolic meaning of the color blue is : truth and the intellect ;wisdom, loyalty, chastity ; peace, piety and contemplation ; spirituality ; eternity.

Nancy J. Stone (color researcher ), PhD, a professor of psychology at Creighton University , says:

"Most of us choose blue as our favorite color, and its really no wonder. Blue is a very soothing hue—its the color of the sky and the sea—and we can all use soothing touches of it in our hectic lives. Blue = Calm "

In one of Stones studies, she found that people who were faced with difficult tasks felt less anxious after they saw something blue. Because the color is relaxing, you can feel free to use it more liberally than happy or energizing colors—it will work well in any room where you long to feel less stressed.
Try adding a touch of this serene shade where you need it most or use a mala such as prana to use as a visual reminder.


♥ White:

The symbolic meaning of the color white is : purity, virginity; death and rebirth, a beginning and an end. White is both the absence of any color and the sum of all colors together, so in a sense it can mean everything or nothing ( like the blue sky ;).

This combination of all colors has given white the name of the " many-colored lotus" in Buddhist teachings. White is the symbol of peace, and the white flag is a universal sign of surrender.

♥ What is a Mala?

A mala, which is Sanskrit for garland, is a string of beads—typically 108, in addition to one guru bead—which are used as a meditation tool while chanting, reciting or silently repeating a mantra.

Malas help the wearer focus their mind and are often used to recite mantras in sets of 108 repetitions. Malas are made from various types of materials, including gemstones, wood, seeds or crystals. When not used for specifically meditation, malas can help wearers carry a sense of peace, calm, mindfulness and focus with them throughout the day.

I am one person, with two hands. It take me the same amount of time to make one mala as another. I can not make it quicker by being paid less. Wholesale inquires will only be considered if you are purchasing in bulk. That means you would be ordering min 7 malas that are not pre made in the shop or one of a kind. Or your purchase is $1000 cad in which case you would receive a 30% off coupon code. Message me for more information.
My malas are not made to be "just a necklace". I spend a lot of time researching stones , symbolism, meaning... writing you the story behind it - including that printed write up in your order and often with a mala pouch or gift box. When you purchase a mala or clay amulet - please follow care instructions that are sent with it. I make my malas strong and the end knot will have glue added. I will not accept returns or refunds on a broken mala as I have spent weeks testing which cord to use and pulling them myself and testing durability. The only way one of my malas would break would be from force and on purpose. Thank you for your understanding.
