This goes for feelings, thoughts, and emotions as well as mundane tasks. We tend to take more than we need. To keep adding and adding to our plate with no limits, no boundaries. Start over. Clean your plate and see what stay's, what's truly yours. Then, balance and harmony will come naturally.

For anyone who’s ever wanted to buy a Mala and needed a good excuse, wink wink, here is your chance. This is the best-secret mediation ever because you can pull anywhere, anytime, and no one will ever notice. Of course, I recommend practicing in your sacred space, but hey, if you are in a meeting and it's feeling heavy, and you start to feel overwhelmed, get the beads moving. #harmonycomesfirst.
Traditionally, prayer beads are made of 108 beads; in some cases, they can be divisible by nine plus one guru bead. The significance of 108 beads is an important number and is considered sacred in many religions and historical events. The 109th bead is often called the guru bead, or the tassel. The tassel is meant to represent one thousand lotus petals.
Each bead has a consistent space between one another as they are strung together with silk thread and a knot in the middle. As one bead is connected to the other, so should we gracefully move from one lesson to another. The patter of each Mala represents the same patterns of our own lives.
Meditating with a Mala is such a beautiful practice. It brings together multiple tools into one meditation by combining the sound, gemstone therapy, acupressure, and a deep focus within. Plus, you get to buy a new necklace and also have a "don't kill my vibe" secret weapon!
Mantra: Use a mantra that you love or you are familiar with. I love using the Ra, Ma, Da, Sa mantra. Time: Practice this meditation for 3, 11, or 31 minutes. Eyes: Gently closed. Breath: Breath slowly and deeply. Pose:
Hold your Mala beads with your thumb and your Saturn finger.
Start with the bead that falls right after the guru bead.
Mala beads between your thumb and your Saturn finger.
Do not use your Jupiter's finger (it's your first finger, as it represents the self and the ego, and today is not about him).
Recite the mantra, "RA," "MA," "DA," "SA," while holding each bead between the thumb and your Saturn finger. You are moving from one bead to the next with each sound. Pull each bead over the fingers with your thumb as you recite the mantra. Once you reach the guru bead, relax.
End: To end, tighten all the muscles of the body. Inhale and hold. Exhale and hold. Relax.
Feel free to adjust this meditation based on your needs. Harmony can be applied to all aspects of our lives. By using different fingers, you can stimulate specific meridian points to affect different parts of your brain. Make sure you are using the tip of your fingers.
Index finger: Wisdom, knowledge, prosperity
Middle finger: Patience
Ring finger: Health, vitality, strengthen the nervous system
Little finger: Communication, intelligence
