VIRTUES OF STONES
Dalmatian Jasper is known as a nurturing stone. It also allows us to connect with our own inner child and let go of resentment, bitterness, or feelings of restriction to immerse ourselves fully in the positive aspects of life.
The dark spots are caused by Tourmaline deposits, which adds the energy of spiritual grounding and psychic protection to this stone.The black tourmaline in this stone aids in its ability to transmute electromagnetic frequencies; blocking environmental pollution and radiation.
Dalmatian Jasper aids in breaking down defense mechanisms that no longer serve a purpose. Thus helping a person to think more clearly, enhancing decisiveness, and increasing organizational skills. This is a great crystal for anyone that is over analytical or paranoid. It also works great for pet trainers, or parents due to its ability to calm and influence animals and children.
WHY MALAS 108 BEADS?
Mala is usually made of 108 beads and a guru bead. This enhances the practice of japa meditation (also called mantra meditation) by keeping count of the number of times a mantra is chanted. Malas can be made with fewer beads, such as 18, 27 and 54. It is believed that some holy texts say a mala should consist of only nine beads. Hence, a mantra chanting of 108 times would require you to complete 12 turns of the nine-bead mala.
The number of beads in a mala is associated with the aim of japa. A mala with 27 beads is used for attaining spiritual progress, while a mala with 108 beads is used to achieve fulfillment. The number, 108, has spiritual significance as it is believed that 108 energy lines converge to form anahata, the heart chakra.
One may perform japa with mala as follows:
Sit straight, keeping the spine erect.
Keep the eyes closed.
Hold the mala in the right hand. Let it rest on the second and third fingers.
Use the thumb to bring down each bead while chanting the chosen mantra.
