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's bracelet goes to Cameron, who I first met through blogging (you can catch her on both Boston Green Blog and Just us Gals, Boston). At first, I would see her here or there (oh hey girl!), but once I got to chatting with her more often, the more I knew I just really liked her! Fast forward to last year's W.E.L.L. Summit and we basically teamed up to "do all the things" together and the rest was history. I love Cameron for her love all things green, obviously, but she's also just so cool. She's interested in learning about and participating in all different types of things just for the experience, and I love that (and sometimes envy that)... heck, I just learned she's climbing the Grand Canyon with her Dad next Spring. Like, go girl! I love our blossoming friendship and it's something I truly appreciate! For Cam's bracelet, I used a portion of milky quartz and vintage Czech glass beads that I've had stashed for awhile, waiting to be used for something special! Quartz brings strength and clarity to the intellect, aiding concentration and memory retention, and filtering out distractions.
Be sure to keep up with the entire series, all 40 days worth!
