21 Day Meditational Journey

ponchoStarting today, I am embarking on a 21 day *choose love* meditational journey. Each day when I wake up I will meditate for 21 minutes. I won’t time myself but my inner rhythm will advise when it’s time to end. I will choose love in all of my actions. Every. Single. One. To those I engage with, to my children, my husband, and perhaps most importantly to myself. I will not engage in inner dialog that doesn’t serve me. I will focus on attracting only love into my sphere of consciousness. I will not complain. Not just out loud but in my head. As I hear myself blaming, complaining or justifying, I will cease and desist immediately, moving myself back to my center of love. I will remind myself that every single moment I am either attracting success or crap into my life by the choices I make in my head. It will be imperative that I choose my thoughts wisely. I am pumped. I am ready. Keep me accountable people! 21 Days. Starting now!!

Ease joint stiffness & pain

Copper bracelets have been renowned for reducing joint pain and stiffness associated with rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. Some doctors are skeptical but wearers of copper swear by the metal for extra freedom and flexibility in their joints. Although worn on the wrist, researchers report the bracelets are beneficial to stiff joints throughout the entire body. Even in studies, patients wearing real copper bracelets reported feeling remarkably better than those wearing a placebo bracelet.

Healthier immune system

When worn, copper is absorbed directly into the bloodstream in small doses, helping to balance the levels of zinc to copper in the body. Once in the bloodstream, copper connects with enzymes that are used to aid in the creation of hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is necessary for the body to repair and heal itself, and helps the immune system work to its full potential.

Lower blood pressure

Combined with a healthy diet and exercise, wearing copper has been proven to help your heart. Since a copper deficiency can lead to high blood pressure, which is detrimental to your health, wearing a copper bracelet can help lower your blood pressure.

Bonus: copper makes you look fabulous!

Copper is such a fun metal to wear and it looks great on every skin tone! We always use the highest quality copper in our jewelry and it tends to catch the eye with its shine. Copper pairs wonderfully with other metals and is a great way to combine your silver and gold accessories.
