TRUE STATE - Communication Mala
Communication should be a process where we try as clearly and accurately as we can, to understand and convey our thoughts, intentions and objectives - and as a listener - to do the same for others. But too often unexamined feelings are the starting point of communication and we speak from a place of resentment, blame and unmet expectations. Genuine communication starts with understanding why you want to do or say something and then with your intention clear – conveying what you want to say respectfully and empathetically - from a place of center and balance. Dropping negative patterns and moving to a place of consciousness will make for deeper, truer and more heartfelt communication.
This TRUE STATE Mixed Amazonite Mala can help support your intention to create truer, more appropriate and more heart-filled communication in your life. Work with it to deepen your meditation and yoga practices.

This TRUE STATE Communication Mala has 108 Mixed Amazonite gemstone beads (8mm). It has been hand knotted on silk cord with one knot between each gemstone. It has a carved conch shell guru bead with the sacred Buddhist mantra 'Om Mani Padme Hum' and finished with a turquoise handmade tassel.
Guru: Carved Conch 'Om Mani Padme Hum'
The Mantra OM MANI PADME HUM – translates to ‘the jewel is in the lotus’
Om Mani Padme Hum literally translates to: ‘the jewel is in the lotus’ or ‘praise to the jewel in the lotus’ but it means that within each of us is the lotus flower, but it is covered up by a lot of mud and muck. Practice, discipline and the right intention will assist us to transform – to rid ourselves of the mud and muck until we are as sparkling, pure, compassionate and wise as the lotus flower itself. (According to the Dalai Lama, with method and wisdom you can transform your impure body, speech, and mind into the pure exalted body, speech, and mind of a Buddha.) Tibetan culture tells us that to deeply know this phrase — to bring it into the very depths of one’s being - is to attain enlightenment.
Om (or Aum)
The sound, OM is believed to be the primordial sound of all creation. The Universe was created with Om and it holds within it all that is, was and ever will be. Buddhists believe that the sound vibration of Om cleanses away pride, helps dissolve ego and cultivate kindness and generosity
The ma syllable in mani is associated with dissolving jealousy and the attachment to fleeting pleasures. Reciting it helps us loosen our jealous attachments while cultivating ethical behavior. The ni syllable in particular is believed to dissolve our attachments to desire and passion while cultivating our ability to be patient with ourselves and others. The entire word, mani, means "jewel."
Pad is a syllable that dissolves our attachments to the many prejudices and judgmental notions we have while cultivating the quality of perseverance. This me syllable helps dissolve our attachments to being possessive while also cultivating our powers of concentration. Together, padme means lotus and represents wisdom.
With the syllable, hum, we work to dissolve our attachments to aggression and hatred. We instead cultivate our own innate wisdom – that which is unshakeable and unmoveable.
