What is a Mala Necklace
Updated: Jul 2
Beaded jewelry on a string date back further than the age of this planet. More recently, shell beads on a string were found in a cave known as Blombos and are said to be from 70,000 BC. It wasn’t until the 8th century BC that ancient Mystics, Sages and Priests started to use them during mediation and prayer. This later become known as a Mala (which the Rosary stems from).
These beads were used to assist one with accessing higher knowledge. This higher knowledge is God Source/Creator. However, you hold the same divine wisdom within, and it is accessed via prayer. It is your Spirit/Higher Self that filters this wisdom into your pillar of light. It then enters your conscious mind when the timing is divine.
A Mala can be seen as a sacred crystal for a seer. As you hold a Mala, you are to rub your fingers across each bead, connecting with the energy of it. You can connect to seek like you do in any meditation or prayer ceremony. A sacred chant/mantra can also be used and is the traditional way. If you are centered in your heart, hold patience, and quiet your mind, then the Mala will guide you.
A Mala can also be worn. Some Malas offer psychic protection, align your energy field/aura, and can even aid in healing physical body ailments. It all depends on what you program it to be and what energies are used to create it. Meaning, that the person who makes it carries energy, their intention is energy, the beads/tassel/string etc. used all carry energy. Existence IS energy. All of that combined creates a specific vibrational tone for the Mala. When the energy of the Mala connects to your energy field, the two become one. It is no different than feeling a shift in your energy after interacting with another human.
When you first get a Mala, you are to set your intentions into it just like with any crystal. You also have to cleanse/charge it. A true authentic Mala will have 108 beads with an overhand knot between each one. They then merge into a guru bead which sits atop the tassel. Sometimes the tassel is adorned with sacred amulets or talismans. Malas can be made with wood or seed beads, natural gemstones/crystals, or pearls. The combination does hold a meaning and it is wise to fully understand prior to purchasing one if it desired to be used for your Spiritual Journey and not just for looks.
The ”look” of a beaded necklace with a tassel has become more of a fashion statement in America. It has become so blended in the “spiritual” community that many do not know what a true Mala looks like or how to use it. With that said, let us break down some simple Mala verbiage:
· Mala in Sanskrit means garland, like the word rosary which means garland roses. It is a garland around your head and heart designed to connect the two.
· Bead stems from the ancient word bede which means prayer.
· Tassel on a Mala represents the lotus which is the symbol of your Higher Essence/Spirit.
“When you look at the word Oracle what do you see first? The word Ora. This means mouth, speech, and prayer. The word prayer describes a communicational act between humans and the Sacred God Source, gods (Archangels), or the transcendent realm. This originated from humans going into sacred Oracle Temples to communicate with the Higher Planes.”
~Instill the Grain by Zaneta Ra
Learning what was taught in Instill the Grain you can connect the dots to the Mala. Mala beads to me as an Oracle, simply help you become the “seer”.
It is important to notice the outline I described for a 108 Mala. I have noticed many unauthentic ones being sold when the customer is genuine about using them. A lot do not use natural beads/stone, have knots, guru beads etc. Most are adorned with fake crystal looking pendants that are sold on Amazon.
The string used should be pure silk. Silk is used because its energy protects your field. Natural silk helps to deflect negative energy that is either trying to enter your field or is already in it. It is because of this power that it helps replenish positively charged photons within your Light Body. It is why most people feel so good after wearing silk or sleeping in silk sheets. Ancient Priestesses wore silk because of this purpose as well as it helps with transformation and harnessing creative energy.
*Zaneta’s Note: In my visions I see fragments of positively charged protons communicate and filter into the Light Body to those positively charged photons. I see the photons helping to bind atoms there which is part of Ascension. Meaning it is aiding in the molding of your Light (hence why the Sun in the sky become white in 2020). Again, this is what I see as an Oracle. For a deeper understanding of the current Physical Ascension humanity is experiencing please read The Ascension Symptoms Manual book*
· Om Shreem: I use this often after placing each bead on my Malas. Om is the sound of Creation and stands for Oneness because we are all ONE. Shreem is the bija mantra of the goddess Lakshmi which helps to bring abundance and prosperity to the wearer.
· Om mani padme hum: The all-encompassing sound of the Universe.
· Lokha Samasta Sukino Bhavantu: May all beings everywhere know peace.
· Om Namah Shivaya: I surrender/bow to my highest self.
