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.
My little sister, Lindsey has had a bit of a tough year but she is still going out there and doin' it for herself! She has always been a "march to the beat of your own drummer" kind of girl and I have always appreciated that about her. She's sassy and kind, funny and caring and I'm lucky to call her my sister and my friend. I know that she likes to adorn herself in a little bit of funky, vintage jewelry so I decided to use a mixture of brown jasper, milky quartz, lavender Czech glass beads and a bauble I picked up at a consignment shop as part of another piece. I focused the brown jasper for Lindsey because it brings stability and balance, and is particularly grounding as a worry stone, or for dissolving a sudden rush of fear, anger, or panic. Homegirl is still in college so I thought this could be useful for her! Love you, kid!
