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.
Kelsey Fox Bennett is a positive force, no doubt about it. If you were ever to meet her, you'd never be able to forget her. I met her at last year's W.E.L.L. Summit and have loved getting to know her spirit over the past year. What Kelsey does is inspiring; she helps kids and families overcome trauma through holistic healing and movement. She helps people experience healing and joy in their every day lives... I mean, what's not to love about that? In person, Kelsey's positive attitude is infectious. You can't help but be happy in her presence. It may not seem like a lot but when someone positively influences your life, even if it's for a short period of time, it makes a difference. I admire Kelsey to the moon and back. For Kelsey's bracelet, I used brown jasper and a vintage bead that I've always loved and been saving for something special like this. Brown jasper has many qualities but it's the emotional healing energy that led me to use it for Kelsey. It's known to strengthen energy for the emotional body, easing stress and producing a calm stability. It seemed to fit just right!
