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 think it was at last year's W.E.L.L. Summit that I first met Jessica of Oh, I Design. I'm sure I had been following her on the 'nets for quite a bit longer but you know when you finally meet someone and they are everything you dreamed and more? That's Jess. She's sweet and adorable and adorably sweet. She's kind and has a great sense of humor, not to mention a killer sense of style. She's a great Mama and such a lovely lady that I am now happy to call a friend. Jessica, you keep on bein' you. It's working! 👌For Jessica's bracelet, I used almost all white quartz, a touch of jade and a vintage bead from my stash. Quartz is a power stone, or so I'm told through research. They can channel universal energy which I suppose makes it "a Jack of All Trades" type of stone. I'd like to think it could be used for manifesting, healing, meditation and protection, among other things.
Be sure to keep up with the entire series, all 40 days worth!
