For 40 days, I will make it a priority to wake up early or make the time at lunch to meditate and create with positive vibes. Taking the inspiration from my mala making session, I will meditate on my purpose for the day while also focusing on positive energy and the things that I am grateful for (which isn't always easy for me). Since I love the energy of "good vibes", I obviously want to share them with others, so for the 40 days of this practice, I will create a mala bracelet a day, focusing on what I love about them/how I appreciate them and send a note of positivity on to that specific person (and also literally using the USPS). I will also share with my readers about that person and in short what it is about them that I admire. My goal is to bring Prosperity, as in the state of good fortune, comfort and well-being to both myself and my people. I ordered some special beads that had meaning and also decided to incorporate ones that I have been collecting over the years from vintage vendors, flea markets and the like. I wanted these to be special and personal, so that if the recipient did want to use them as prayer beads or worry beads (more likely my use), they'd have something special to hold.
My friend Alaina (we met through blogging,yay!) is truly a woman to be admire, which I do. I can't pinpoint the moment when I knew we were kindred spirits but she is one of the people who I relate to on a couple of important levels. We are boy Moms, which might not be important to some, but I love to relate that way. We are both strong and thoughtful women but with that strength comes a sensitivity that I think can go unnoticed or maybe unappreciated. We love hard and fight hard and sometimes can be let down hard. I know that I've felt that way this week. Alaina is sensitive to the ailments of the world and wants to fix them, much like I do. This week, I know that she needs the encouragement and positivity of this project, so Alaina your bracelet is in the mail, stay strong girl! I used yellow marble and a mixture of grey and brown jasper for Alaina's bracelet. Jasper is known as a stone of gentleness, comfort and relaxation, all of which I am willing to Alaina this week. XO
Be sure to keep up with the entire series, all 40 days worth!
