What Are Mala Beads?
For those of us who love our yoga, you know that from mantras, to jewelry, art work, and tee shirts... we are all looking for a piece of our practice that we can take off the mat with us and incorporate into our daily hustle and bustle. Mala beads can be just that; a way to transition your practice to work, or out to dinner with your husband or girlfriends. Mala Beads are necklaces or meditation garlands that have been worn for thousands of years by yogis and spiritual seekers from all over the world. But as of late, Mala Beads have been showing up in stores and on the runways of all types of designers.
First created in India 3000 years ago, Mala beads have roots in Hinduism, Buddhism and yoga. The term ‘Mala’ is a Sanskrit word for “meditation garland.” Originally, Mala beads were used for a special style of meditation called Japa, which means, “to recite.” During Japa meditation you repeat a mantra softly, 108 times, using your Mala beads to keep track. A mantra is a word or sound repeated during mediation to help you concentrate.
The number 108 is a spiritually significant number. It relates to the Heart Chakra. Chakras are the intersections of energy lines in the body, and there are said to be a total of 108 energy lines converging to form the Heart Charka.
The Numbers 1, 0, & 8 all have spiritual meanings. 1 stands for God or higher truth, 0 stands for emptiness or completeness in spiritual practice, and 8 stands for infinity or eternity.
It also relates to the Sun and the Earth. The diameter of the Sun is 108 times the diameter of the Earth, and the distance from the Sun to the Earth is 108 times the diameter of the Sun.
How Do You Use Mala Beads?
Using a Mala is simple, and easy. In the beginning, you should clarify the intention of your practice and choose your mantra or affirmation. Then, find a comfortable space and sit quietly in a cross legged position. Close your eyes and observe the speed and depth of your natural breath. Begin to breathe deeply and bring your focus and attention onto your mantra or affirmation. Next, place the first Mala bead gently on the middle or ring finger of your right hand. Place your thumb on the guru bead and begin reciting your mantra. At the end of the mantra push the Mala bead away with your thumb and move onto the next bead for another round. Continue until you reach a count on 7, 21, 27, or 108. If you wish to do another round of mantras or affirmations, do not skip over the guru bead. Instead, turn the Mala around and move in the opposite direction.
After your meditation you can wear you Mala Beads as a reminder of the intentions you have set for yourself or your day, or just simply as a reflection of where you are in your journey. Either way it is a great example of where fashion meets wellness.

How To Make Your Own Urban Herb Garden
What you will need:
Start by filling your jar almost to the top with soil, leaving just enough room to add additional soil to cover the seeds. Make and label each jar so that you know which herb is which after planting the seed. Add 1 type of seed to each jar. Cover lightly with more soil. You don't want to plant them to deep because they need the sun, and water to germinate. Add just enough water to each jar to wet the soil and the seeds. Place the herb garden in a place to receive sun light, like a window. The final step is to nourish your plant and watch it grow. Ive included some tips for watering below!
Water, Water Everywhere!
When is the best time to water your plant? When the soil feels dry an inch below the surface. Here are a few watering tips to keep in mind:
