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.
Many of you may have heard of Josh Rosebrook before. He has an amazing hair and skincare line that uses natural ingredients that you know you can trust. Read a little bit about him and you'll already be like, "wow, what a cool guy!". After meeting him at last year's W.E.L.L. Summit, I will admit, I was immediately like, this is the energy that I can really respond to and appreciate in a person. He isn't just an inspiration in that he is living his dream authentically but he is an inspiring person to be around, even if you're simply talking about an every day kind of matter. He is positive and friendly and warm and simply a delight. Rather than making Josh a mala, I made a couple of bracelets that I thought would be a little something special (and would fit!). For Josh's bracelets, I used a combination fancy jasper and yellow turquoise (which is a jasper/serpentine stone). Known as the “Supreme Nurturer,” Jasper is a stone of grounding and stability, providing comfort, security, strength and healing.
