How to Use Mala Beads the Right Way


Do you already own a set of mala beads? Do you know how to use mala beads correctly? Your prayer beads can give you tremendous support in not only spiritual ways but if you truly know how to use mala beads the right way, that deep soul connection acts like a guardian angel, protecting, uplifting and guiding you in moments you need it most.

How to Use Mala Beads to Grow Your Spiritual Power

My first mala, a tiny-beaded rudraksha mala, so small, it wouldn’t fit over my head, is one of my most beloved treasures. I have used it for many powerful spiritual processes: I have worn it at the feet of enlightened masters, have used it to draw energy from amazing sacred power spots in India, have held it close to my heart when singing bhajans (sacred songs) to the Divine. I have blessed it in innumerable pujas and sacred ceremonies at ancient temples and have bowed with it in overwhelming gratitude for the blessings I was receiving; all this grace and fifteen years, many thousands of hours of meditation and millions of mantras are vibrating in those humble, little beads.

Divine Intervention – How My Prayer Beads Stopped a Plan

My mala means so much to me that, some years back in Bali, I literally stopped a plane from take-off (delayed, to be more precise), so I could get off the plane, run across the tarmac and inside the departure hall to a little massage place where I had forgotten my mala beads next to the massage chair I had been sitting in not too long ago, passing a relaxed time with mantra & massage until boarding.

The crew waited for me to get back on the plane, cheering along to my joyful song that I got my oh-so-precious mala back. It’s still kind of unbelievable to me how everything came to a halt on that plane because I suddenly exclaimed a personal state of emergency to go retrieve my belongings (I found myself calling out “Stop, we can’t leave yet!! I have to go back inside!! I forgot something very important!!!” as if I was the commander of the ship.) There were no negotiations, no questions asked, they instantly complied and ushered to me out with a smile, anticipating my fast return. That just doesn’t usually happen!


The Meaning of Mala Beads

I’m sharing this story with you because it illustrates two important points about owning mala beads or sacred power object:

1. HOW you use mala beads is a crucial factor in HOW MUCH ENERGY & SUPPORT you receive from your mala.

2. A properly BLESSED & ACTIVATED rudraksha mala is more than just a strand of prayer beads or yoga fashion, it’s a sacred SOUL OBJECT. If you use it regularly with your mantra meditation practice and take good care of it, you build a deep connection with it that will continue to serve you in your life, in sometime unexpected, even miraculous ways.

3. This is the actual “secret of manifesting”. By increasing your soul power, you gain influence and command in the material world. Increasing your soul power is one of the main benefits of authentic and activated mala beads.


Don’t get confused by the wrong information out there

Because there is so much confusing and contradictory information out there when it comes to malas, we made a video for you. In this video, I share about the amazing blessings you can receive from activated mala beads and show you how to use a mala for meditation practice (the right way).

I hope you find this video on how to use mala beads helpful.


Many blessings on your spiritual journey,


PS: My love for sacred mala beads like Rudraksha and the amazing benefits they can confer to people inspired my vision for creating SHIVALOKA. If you are looking to start a meditation practice, I can’t stress enough how important it is to get a high-quality, high-vibrational meditation mala. It serves you as conscious accessory, supporting your spiritual practice and daily life.
