...But do fertility bracelets really work?
I love what I do....creating jewelry. I love it when a customer calls or writes with a question or wanting help in picking out the perfect fertility bracelet. I love when a customer receives their piece and they write to let me know how much they love wearing it.
The most common question? "...but do fertility bracelets REALLY work?" And I always try to come up with a short answer. But a short answer doesn't really do the question justice. An exercise is what does the question justice.
Shut down the logical side of your brain for a bit. You know that side!!! The one that tells you something makes absolutely no sense. The one that tells you something isn't true unless there's been an infinitesimal number of medical studies. Go tuck that side of your brain in bed for a bit...and do exactly what I say right now:
1. Take a deep, slow breath. Exhale slowly and calmly. With each inhale think the word "I" for the entire length of the breath. With each exhale, think the word "Believe". Do it a few times, until you feel your shoulders and mind relax.
Feeling more peaceful? (If your answer is no....keep doing it until your answer TRULY changes to yes and then continue to the next step.....
Okay...so......tell me which step had you feeling better? I am hoping that the first step was the one and if that is true for you.
LIghtbulb moment: Stress does a body....bad.
I get the stress of trying to get pregnant. It was a long road to motherhood for me and in many ways, has defined me (in a great way). Don't beat yourself up or let anyone discourage you over whatever it is you are feeling.
3. Now.....think about something that brings a smile to your face. (Pause) Find a photo on your phone that brings another smile to your face. (Longer pause) Is that peaceful, smiley feeling starting to come back again? Take that smile and really feel "I Believe".
The gemstones and symbols that are in a fertility bracelet? They are said to have metaphysical properties, energies, vibrations, and soul balancing spirituality all throughout civilization. I have put all of my pieces together using combinations of all of those things. I've done the "research" for you.
I wear bracelets almost 24/7. Each morning, I'll put one (or a few) on. I'll pick them not because they match what I am wearing, but instead because they match or enhance or correct my mood.
Here's an example:
I have read that citrine attracts prosperity and success. That it imparts joy, wonder, delight, and enthusiasm. Citrine raises self-esteem and self-confidence. I put on a bright citrine bracelet today. By choosing that one, I started my day in the mindset of "confidence and enthusiasm". My bracelet, in a sense, was my cheerleader. My reminder of what I wanted to accomplish.
What I have learned from my journey with infertility, as well as from other trying journeys in life, is this:
Your mind can make or break you. Be good to yourself. Don't let your mind and logic chip away at.......faith and believing.
Off the soapbox, I go....and up to bed!! I'd love your thoughts on this post!!
