Using beads, cards and pebbles as aids to meditation
Our latest vlog looks at the different tools we can use as an aid to meditation.
Music can be a wonderful aid to meditation – there are lots of CDs, mp3s and downloads from Spotify and others.
A great album is Zen and the Art of Relaxation
Mala beads are very useful when we are meditating especially when we want to chant. A set of beads consists of 108 beads which is a sacred number in the Buddhist tradition. I find meditating with mala beads very good for taking me into a lovely quiet space.
The most common mantra chanted with mala beads is Om Mani Padi Hum.
Pebbles can also be great aids to meditation. These pebbles have a word you can use when meditating. The most common words are: peace, love, kindness and happiness.
So, do have a look at these aids to meditation and see if any of them will support your meditation practice.
