Meditation 'props R Us'

federicafederica seeker of the clear blue skyIts better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to speak out and remove all doubt Moderator

I don't want people to imagine I can't do without them. These are merely tools to aid and deepen the experience of meditation.
I am delighted to have found, ordered and received this mala, because it gives me a sense of grounding and helps me to concentrate, enjoy and focus on my meditation, and supports my dedication and discipline.
I meditated before I received this, with a home-made mala of tiny haematite beads.
Now I have received 'The Real McCoy' and feel as if I'm on a roll.

Those who know me, will understand why this mala is important to me, having lost everything I possessed previously, including mu Buddha-altar statues and lamps, to an unscrupulous and mean-spirited landlady....

Would you like to post pictures of your dispensable, transitory 'precious tools'....?

    I look forward to the movie. I think you should push yourself forward to have a bit part... There MUST be one for a crustacean in it!

    My amethyst and rose quartz mala was the first knotted mala I made and it's very rough around the edges. But I love it and there's something very soothing about when I meditate.

    ...And there's a knot between each bead, too... That's amazingly impressive! Such a beautiful mala - amethyst & rose Quartz do wonders for the troubled spirit, and are both soothing and restorative.

    Gorgeous. <3

    I'll take 10.
