Got Focus?

Do you need help with your meditation practice?  Do you have trouble keeping track of your time while meditating?  Well, I've got the thing for you.  Focus beads can be worn as a bracelet or hooked on to your belt loops and are used as a tool to assist you with maintaining focus, avoid drifting, and give you an idea of time spent in the practice.  

At each bead you will stop and meditate on a topic of choice.  Meditating on each bead
will help you become aware of your thoughts and words in everyday life; helping to choose to
think and project happy positive energy to yourself and to those around you.

Do you need help getting started?  Here are a few positive affirmations to get you on your way:

“Loving myself heals my life. I nourish my mind, body and soul”

“The more grateful I am, the more reasons I find to be grateful”

“I give out Love and it is returned to me multiplied”

“I have a wonderful partner and we are both happy and at peace”

“I am my own unique self – special, creative and wonderful”

“I trust in the process of life”

“My life is a joy filled with love, fun and friendship all I need do is
 stop all criticism, forgive, relax and be open”

“I choose love, joy and freedom, open my heart and allow wonderful things to flow into my life”

Under the Boardwalk

I am so in need of a little R and R.  Lucky for me, we are heading "down the shore" on Saturday.  A week of fun, sand, and surf is exactly what I need.  I'm looking forward to reading my book under the umbrella or on the porch of our house; playing in the sand with my kids; hitting the arcade on the boardwalk; eating some fantastic seafood; and just spending some much needed time with my family.

I have been super busy with custom orders and gearing up for the Phoenixville Farmer's Market in July.  Also, I've begun prep for the items we are creating at Arrowhead Day Camp this summer.  Never a dull moment in Hammi Jammi land.  

Just to gear up for the summer and beach, I changed my playlist on this blog.  I included on of my all time favorite beach songs.  "Under the Boardwalk" by the Drifters always reminds me of my Dad and our trips to the beach when I was younger.  I also created a fun shell necklace and matching earrings that I wanted to share with you, my faithful readers.

Well, ta ta for now.  Happy beach season everyone!
