Good energies are more easily activated and harnessed at home or in that special place you go to recite positive affirmations. In this place, your thoughts are meditated upon and intentions are set.
I pray in my closet, recite my affirmations in the mirror and love to go to the coffee shop when I’m in true grind mode- it's so much easier to be positive and productive in these familiar places and I really feel a sense of authority and control - “I’M IN CHARGE” (Hustle & Flow) over my day and more importantly my life!
Unfortunately, we can’t be in that familiar place 24/7 because life requires us to step out of our comfort zone and into environments where our balanced energy and intentions may become threatened by unforeseen circumstances, stress, work, obligations and most frequently the unsettling vibes of others.
I use to feel such a sense of defeat on days that started out so powerful, days that I really got my mind right and put in the work to be great (intentions, affirmation etc.). But the minute I was faced with a real world challenge- all of the 'magic' went out the window. In these scenarios, I would often find myself vibrating lowly or giving someone a piece of my mind.
Then one day it dawned on me that I should find a way to harness my intentions with something tangible, a reminder or promise that could be with me at all times. I love and collect gemstones because I believe in there infinite energy and the huge variety of benefits you can get from them so I began carrying my small stones with me as a reminder or my intentions -and would even “customize” my energy for the day based on what I was experiencing or wanting to manifest at the time. From there, energy + intent was born out of this mindfulness practice.
Now you too can take your energy with you wherever you go as a pocket promise to remain mindful of your intentions, growth and goals. Being mindful that peace and progress is not a getaway, long awaited vacation or graduation, but a mindset of gratitude for the present and ability to refocus your happiness in trying scenarios.
