It has been quite some time since I meditated, it’s been a while since I checked in with myself, it’s been a while since I shared either of those with my daughter.
Thanks to social media, once again, I recently have done all of those. I thank social media because some good things are right in your face and it’s hard to keeping putting on ignore… I started following along the meditations with BexLife. http://www.bexlife.com/
She has easy to follow meditations that have been a great place for me to start back on the path of living a more peaceful life. Also, while cleaning up for my family to come to town a few weeks ago I found my old packet of red string. Red String is from Kabbalah and is symbolic to ward of the evil eye. I took Kabbalah classes a few years ago. I like to say that I am a mix of many religions or spirituality because I’ve never found one that I felt 100% with. There was a lot of controversy with the Kabbalah Centre, and that is not something I am advocating or involved with. I simply enjoyed the lessons that I learned and found that the red string is a great symbol to remind yourself not to judge, not to envy and to remain at peace.
My daughter put mine on me tonight and I explained to her what it was and asked her if she wanted to wear it too. I told her it was a great reminder to be nice and to know that God or the universe was looking out for her. It was her choice to wear it, I always want it to be her choice…
