Announcement    Aum + Amen specializes in unique healing gemstone mala prayer beads, Buddhist mantra beads, yoga beads, intention jewelry, healing energy meditation beads, hand knotted mala necklaces and mala bracelets for body, mind & free spirit!

What on earth are mala prayer beads?

Mala is a Sanskrit word meaning garland. Mala prayer beads are essentially Hindu or Buddhist rosaries and are traditionally made with 18, 27, 54 or 108 beads. Prayer beads are used in many spiritual traditions in order to keep count while repeating a mantra, prayer or affirmation either quietly or aloud. In Sanskrit, the word for this practice is japa.

In the most practical sense, mala beads are used as a meditation tool. Much like a cross, your mala mantra beads may also serve as a personal symbol of faith. For me, mala prayer beads symbolize my devotion to the practice of yoga, meditation, visualization, and prayer in all forms. I wear mala beads to represent my personal journey to love, mindfulness, and inner peace.

"Nothing real can be threatened. Nothing unreal exists. Herein lies the peace of God."
- A Course in Miracles

The easiest way to care for your gemstone mala prayer beads is to periodically place them outside or by a window under the moonlight. This will energize, clean away, and clear any fearful or stagnant energy that might have accumulated during use. I also like to smudge my gemstone prayer beads with dried sage on occasion.

About AUMandAMEN

Sales 143
On Etsy since 2015

For the love of all things earthy, heavenly, and organic...

Aum + Amen began in 2015 as a way to connect with like-minded people and explore, express, and share my creative spirit. As a result, mala necklaces, prayer beads, and spiritual yoga jewelry have taken over my studio and jewelry making world. I connect deeply to this process. Mala making has become as much a part of my daily spiritual practice as meditation, yoga, and living food.

My intention is to remind you to connect, to pray, to get quiet, to create through inner peace and visualization, to follow your bliss, to know, and to love.

And so it is.

Many, many blessings...

Namaste

Namaste! Aum + Amen is based out of sunny southern California.

Each piece of jewelry has been handmade with love as part of my daily spiritual practice. It is important to me that each piece is made with a peaceful, present mind. I make and ship each piece with blessings from me to you and with the intention to extend my heartfelt inner peace straight into the palm of your hand. The divine in me recognizes the divine in you…Namaste.

Jewelry Care:

>>> To extend the life of your jewelry, please do not wear while swimming, bathing, or showering.

>>> Because semi-precious gemstones are believed to absorb energy, a daily or regular energetic cleanse for your jewelry is recommended. This is easily done with moonlight, sage, or quartz crystals. Simply smudge your gemstones, place them in the window under moonlight, and/or place them in a sacred space near living plants and quartz crystals. Each piece has been cleansed before shipping. Please note: excessive sunlight can fade certain gemstones so this is not the preferred cleansing method.

>>> When exposed to air and body oils, metals such as brass, copper, and silver can oxidize and tarnish over time. This will give any piece made with these metals an antique look and feel. While I love and encourage this aged and soft muted patina, if you prefer a shine simply rub the metal with a polishing cloth to bring back the original luster.

Many, many blessing. I wish you and your jewelry a long and happy life together!
