Not So Wishy-Washy Wish Hemp Bracelet


A wish bracelet is a simple but cute bracelet that is meant to encourage following your dreams. The idea of a wish bracelet is that when you get one you sit somewhere quiet and hold the bracelet in your hand and focus on your wish. Think of your wish for a few seconds without anything else interrupting your thoughts. Then tie the bracelet securely to your wrist. Make you never take your bracelet off. When you play with your bracelet, or someone comments on it, think about your wish again. After a while your bracelet will fall off on it’s own, hopefully before long your wish will come true.
