The EXPRESSION malas from our Affinity Collection are designed for use with a mindful practice, or for wearing out in the world.
Our LONG mala has 108 beads and is approximately 21.5 - 22” long (without the tassel) and wraps around your wrist 4-5 times. The SHORT mala is 54 beads, and is about 14.5 -15” long (without the tassel). You can wrap it around your wrist 3 times.
The color blue represents the 5th Chakra, EXPRESSION, and reminds you of your intention to be yourself and speak your truth. For these malas, we chose Aquamarine which is said to enhance and improve communication, as well as strengthen patience and positivity.
All Modern ŌM Malas come in our signature gift box and include short descriptions of the materials used in their making.
Wear the Affinity EXPRESSION mala around your neck, or wrap it around your wrist.
You can gently stretch your mala to the perfect length if you choose to wear it around your wrist. Don’t worry—it won’t break.
MALA CARE: It is best not to wash your mala beads or wear your mala when swimming or bathing as this can damage the wood. To clean your mala beads gently wipe the beads using a damp cloth and place them in the shade to dry.
Origin & Materials
Modern ŌM malas are ethically hand crafted on Hainan Island in China. All woods used in our malas are taken from sustainable sources.
AQUAMARINE - Assists in the clear communication of our highest truth. Enhances courage and clarity to express inner knowing. Dispels the difficulty in communicating feelings.
VIETNAMESE BLACK PEAR WOOD - Is said to promote healing, longevity and prosperity, to be very grounding, and to provide physical and spiritual nourishment while fueling inspiration and creativity.
Our artisans recite mantras as they hand-tie the knots of your mala, to add their positive intentions to yours.
Because malas are special objects that absorb the energy of your intentions, Modern ŌM honors the commitments you make when you wear them.
The Mala Society is our promise to repair or replace your mala in the event that it ever breaks.
