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.
Today, I'm welcoming a new member to our family... no the baby isn't here already (thank the Good Lord!) but my cousin recently married a lovely gal who has some similar sensibilities as I do. We are only just really getting to know each other but she's now with child (congrats Ali and Joel!) but what I know of Ali, I know I really like. She is sweet and smart. She's got a great and sensible head on her shoulders but also has a saucy sense of humor. I hope that we have many more lovely encounters, like this past Thanksgiving's and that our kids (who will only be 5-6 months apart) will be best buds! Welcome to the family, cous, I hope you feel some positive vibes! For Ali's bracelet I used a healthy combination of jade and earth jasper! Known as the “Supreme Nurturer,” Jasper is a stone of grounding and stability, providing comfort, security, strength and healing. Jade is an awesome one too! Jade is said to bless whatever it touches so I hope Ali feels blessed this holiday season!
Be sure to keep up with the entire series, all 40 days worth!
