Whether it has to do with your relationships, job, or family, it’s all too easy to get caught up in your head sometimes when things go wrong. This week’s tip, M.I.S.S. Michelle’s D.I.Y. Wish Box, is a quick and inexpensive approach to being beautiful and healthy on the inside as well as on the outside, starting your own thoughts. A few years ago, after researching Creative Visualization or the technique of using positive thoughts and feelings to influence the attainment of your goals, I gave Wish Box Kits to friends and family as Christmas gifts. Books like The Secret, and spiritual gurus like Deepok Chopra suggest using Creative Visualization in order to form the life you want and to improve your overall well being by bringing your goals and desires to the forefront of your consciousness. The Wish Box is a fine example of how anyone can incorporate Creative Visualization into his or her life in a few simple steps, and is this week’s D.I.Y. Tip.
What you need:
1) Box with a lid in any design that is important to you.
HINT: I like red boxes, since red is the Chinese color for good luck and prosperity.
2) Objects symbolizing your goals.
Objects symbolizing romance are hearts
Objects symbolizing wealth are coins.
Objects symbolizing travel is a photo/picture of the destination.
Objects symbolizing stability are rocks.
Take the box and place objects in it representing what you are wishing for (i.e. romance, new job, wealth, happiness, travel, peace of mind). You can also write down specifically what these goals are, and/or how you envision your life, and include this in the box as well. Just being conscious of what you are wishing for usually helps destiny fill its course. Remember, the Wish Box is all about YOU, so anything you feel is important to you can go inside. Trust me, this really works!
Enjoy and stay posted for more beauty tips and picks to come next week!
