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.
I met my friend Nathalie when we both worked at Bose back in what we called "the good ol' days"... I find it's hard to really connect with people that you work with, on a level like we did, but fast forward quite a few years, a couple bridesmaids dresses and two babies later, I consider Nathalie one of the best of my bests! Even though she lives in metro NY, I still love seeing her whenever possible and I hope that we'll make sure to make it a priority whenever we can. She is a positive gal who is now an amazing mother and always will be an amazing friend. I hope she feels the same way! I used green jasper for Nathalie's bracelet with a couple of shiny baubles that I had on hand. Green jasper soothes the spirit, can help balance obsessive tendencies and restores harmony (a must after this past week!).
Be sure to keep up with the entire series, all 40 days worth!
