Follow Your Heart Mala

Follow Your Heart Mala

Just shy of two years ago, I sat down with my daughter and made my first mala bead.  She wanted to do an arts & crafts project with me...and me being a guy...had no idea what to do...SO...I made a mala bead.  It had about 30 beads and Buddha pendant.  I donated this mala bead to the studio where I teach yoga, Whole Yoga in Odenton, Maryland.  Little did I know when I made my first mala that there was actually a way, a thought process, true meaning behind making mala beads.  Shortly after making my first mala bead, I had a thought/vision.  I wondered if anyone was making mala beads for Veterans.  So, I Googled it...turned out...NOPE!  So...I did what any normal person would do....I followed my heart, purchased the URL: malaforvets.org and began making mala beads.  The rest...as they say...is HISTORY.  BTW...this mala is another FIRST for me.  This is the first time I have made a tassel.  :)

Tell me a story about when YOU followed your heart and you could win this Anahata Chakra inspired mala bead.  Leave a comment here and I will enter your name into the drawing...THREE TIMES.  Share the post...and I will put your name in the drawing two more times.
