108 Beads - Why?

When I first found my love of Lava-Links Essential Oils Jewelery, there were some common themes running through the pieces that Delice was designing. I knew with her, being so spiritual, there would be a meaning to everything. 

None of her pieces are just thrown together. Everything is done with intention, meaning and for the better good of all.

Here is some information from Delice as to why she designs, makes and we all proudly pass on to you, 108 bead malas.

Thoughts Become Actions!

Repeat your wish to the Universe 108 times each day.

Why 108?

It is believed there are:

108 earthy desires in mortals

108 lies a human tells

108 energy lines converging from the heart chakra

108 letters in the Sanskrit alphabet - 54 masculine - shiva & 54 feminine - shakti

108 Upanishads - texts of wisdom of ancient sages

108 points define the Sri Yantra and human body

108 feelings - 36 past, 36 present - 36 futures

108 Indian Goddess names

108 styles of meditatioin

108 stages of the soul

12 houses & 9 planets in astrology - 12 x 9 = 108

1, 0 and 8: Some say that 1 stands for God or Higher Truth, 0 stands for emptiness or completeness in spiritual practice and 8 stands for infinity or eternity.

Sun and Earth: The diameter of the Sun is 108 times the diameter of the Earth. The distance from the Sun to the Earth is 108 times the diameter of the Sun.

Moon and Earth: The average distance of the Moon from the Earth is 108 times the diameter of the Moon.

Silver and the Moon: In astrology, the metal silver is said to be present in the moon. The atomic weight of silver is 108.

"We must plant out ideas into the fertile soil of mother earth in order for our dream to come true, 'from little things big things grow'." Delice Bravo
