Beauty Cafe is thrilled to launch Oceans of Metta Handmade Mala’s by Patrizia. Metta means Loving Kindness.
One of my greatest passions about Beauty Cafe is the ability to share some of my special treasures with you. I love rituals and one of my morning rituals is to skim my Facebook newsfeed over coffee. When I’m done with my precious cup of coffee and can face the day, off goes Facebook. One morning the most beautiful mala’s crossed my newsfeed. What made them even gorgeous is they were made by a childhood friend. I quickly sent her off a private message inquiring if we could showcase her mala’s on Beauty Cafe. Patrizia graciously accepted my request and created 4 one-of-a-kind natural gemstone mala’s for her Beauty Cafe launch.
What exactly is a mala ? Well I am so glad you asked… Mala’s are used to stay focused while reciting mantras while meditating. There are variations or interpretation of the mala but in general a mala will be comprised of 108 beads/gemstones, the number of times you recite the mantra or deity. You move your fingers to the next bead on the necklace with each repetition of the mantra. It’s fabulous for those (like myself) who have trouble keeping the mind focused. Different devotionals or religions have different meanings to the mala, some count two, three or even four beads at a time. Like anything having to do with meditation or finding your moment of zen I believe it’s whatever works best for you. Whatever brings you to a quiet mind. Do it. I think mala beads were the original fidget spinners but Oceans of Metta Mala’s are simply the best and bring beauty into your life and heart while finding zen and peace.
Patrizia has created each mala as an individual piece of art, created on nylon string to prevent stretching. Each silk strand, and there are 108 of them in her tassles are cut individually, by hand. Patrizia has wrapped each mala in tissue and included not only the gemstone descriptions of each stone used in her mala, but her favorite loving Metta Mantra to get you started on your meditation journey.
Experience the peace and beauty of Oceans of Metta Mala’s today.
Love, laughter and friendship,
