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 husband's best man has a wife and I like that wife quite a lot. Her name is Jessica and while we only see each other a couple of times a year at best, talking with her about life and kids is effortless every time. We've got kids of similar age (notice a theme here?) but that's not all that I love about her. She knows her crafty side quite well (always something I can appreciate), has an appreciation for wine (we've visited a MANY vineyards together) and goes out there and lives does what she wants. I admire her but I don't think I've actually ever told her! So Jessica, the bracelet is in the mail, I swear! ;-) For Jessica's bracelet, I used mostly milky quartz, along with yellow marble and some glass beads I had on hand. Quartz has the ability to take whatever energy you want to put into it (or so I've read) so I put some "bad ass Mama" juju into this bracelet and I hope she loves it!
Be sure to keep up with the entire series, all 40 days worth!
