Brown or wooden beads represent Mother Earth and have grounding effects. This color stands for stability, reliability and warmth. Essentially, they are spiritual tools that also act as trackers. When wearing Wood Malas, you can count your breaths and track sun salutations, yoga poses, mantras or other affirmations. Using malas helps you find and remain rooted in your most unique and authentic self. And here's a little secret - they also help to further your dreams, intentions, and manifestations.
