Beautiful accessories and mindful jewelry – our Rivet Revolution Malas are meant to bring you a sense of peace and wellness throughout your day—mala beads are powerful tools that have been used for thousands of years to aid in meditation and mindfulness. First created in India 3000 years ago with roots in Hinduism & Buddhism, Malas were used for a special style of meditation called Japa, which means, “to recite”. The term ‘mala’ is a Sanskrit word for “meditation garland.” When not being used for meditation, malas can help wearers carry a sense of peace, calm, mindfulness and focus with them throughout the day. If your day starts to get off track, hold onto your Mala to soak up its peaceful energy and remember your intentions.

Find your Mantra
Select a mantra, intention or prayer that you would like to repeat. Your mantra—Sanskrit for sound, syllable, word or group of words—is a personal “motto” of sorts that is repeated during meditation to help create focus and self-transformation. When repeating a personal mantra, the meditator can calm the mind to allow deeper levels of relaxation and awareness. You can focus your mantra or intention on yourself or on others. There are many to choose from, in English or Sanskrit. According to Deepak Chopra, “Intention is the starting point of every dream. It is the creative power that fulfills all of our needs, whether for money, relationships, spiritual awakening or love.” Simply put, intentions are statements we create that help guide us to think, feel and act in a way that brings our goals—our soul’s deepest desires—to life. And because intentions are even more powerful when you release them to the universe, using mala beads to set and represent intentions is a useful step toward manifesting them into existence.
