This listing is for a white and seven chakra embedded yak bone wrist mala/bracelet for meditation. The yak bone beads are inlaid with copper, nickel, brass and turquoise and coral. Yaks have played a significant role in Tibetan culture and lifestyle for centuries by being used for transportation of goods, yak hair is used for fabrics and rope, and yak milk is used for cheese and butter. Yak bone represents impermanence and is said to maintain healthy blood circulation. Copper, nickel, and brass are believed to be healing metals in Tibetan culture. Turquoise is known for its ability to protect from outside influences and its ability to dissipate negative energy. Turquoise resonates with the throat chakra. Red coral quiets emotions and brings inner peace. Red coral resonates with the root chakra. Our bodies have seven main chakras or energy wheels. The energy or Prana from these chakras flow throughout our body to keep us vibrant, healthy and alive.The red or base/root chakra helps one feel secure and that one has a right to exist. The orange or sacral chakra can help one with being social and feelings, especially intimacy. The yellow or the solar plexus chakra helps one maintain balance in ego and confidence. The green or heart chakra helps one accept love (of others and oneself). The blue or throat chakra helps with relationships and can help one learn to express oneself and trust. The indigo or third eye chakra helps one realize their full potential and tap into their intuition. The violet or crown chakra helps one develop one’s spirituality and trust in the universe. Each bead measures approximately 7mm and is strung by Hands Of Tibet with love. Prayer beads are most commonly used in Tibet, India, and Nepal for meditation, counting mantras, and prostration. Malas are worn on either the left or right wrist while not in use, depending on the practice.
