A Yogi’s Guide to Finding the Perfect Mala Beads
How to Choose the Perfect Mala
Go With Your Gut.
- Trust your instinct. Often people will gravitate towards a mala and then find out the intention or energy that the stones and seeds support and find that it aligns with what they want to call into their practice. However, sometimes logic attempts to override your get instinct and you begin to second guess your instinct and perhaps go in another direction that seems more practical or more impactful. Remember that all intentions connect and support our goal of elevating and growing our highest selves. Take the pressure off and know that whatever you choose it will be beautiful.
- Get Focused. I find it helpful to do a simple quiet meditation before making a decision. This allows me to center and ground. Take a calm few mins to simply set and breath. Let your breath guide you. When you are still and relaxed it is easier to listen to your inner guidance.
- Hold an Intention Setting Ceremony. This doesn’t have to be complicated. This can be as simple as setting aside some time and exploring some open ended questions. What do you want? What makes you happy? What is missing? Grab a piece a paper and a pen, or maybe some colored pencils if you want to get fancy and give yourself the freedom to explore. *Sign up for our newsletter and we will send you some fun worksheets on intention setting.
Now you are ready to make a choice. No choice is wrong. You have granted yourself permission to explore and that takes great courage. Take a moment to just reflect on how awesome you are. You are about to choose a mala and start on a journey of discovery and devotion. See you on the road to discovery!

“There is a lot of feeling, intuition, connection, and energy,” says Mary Caroline Cruz. “People are drawn to something and they don’t know why, even if they aren’t [aesthetically] attracted to it.”
Often times, people instantly connect with one mala and begin to second-guess themselves as they continue to shop around. By listening to your intuition and understanding the stone’s meaning, you can find the mala that is most needed in your present life.
