    I will give this another shot.

    I had purchased a ring recently which was soon lost, causing me to purchase another. It's cool because it has a Buddhist six syllable mantra etched on the spinner.

    Om Mani Padme Hum

    Apparently you are to recite the mantra 108 times. I've read that 108 is a number that has special significance in Eastern beliefs.

    I offer the below links for those who are curious to learn more...

    Interesting.
    When I was only 60 I was told my hair was black, which was a surprise as I thought it was brown...but after when I looked in the mirror I would say to myself..your hair is getting blacker..to this day I say that and my hair despite the fact I am 73 I retain black hair on my scalp.
    And so I now say stuff like..your legs are getting stronger...and if nothing else that somehow helps me manage my leg problems as I rarely need my wheel chair.

    I have one. It pops up every time I see someone using a walker or riding in a motorized chair.

    Good for you.
    It is like a prayer... But your brain takes stuff on board. It tries to deliver the vision you give it.
    Always.. always be positive...that is just so important.
    I wish for you everything that you need for you and your family.
    Honesty decency builds self esteem and a high self esteem is success.

    Would it be wise to pray for a couple days of rain? A simple mantra: Om Rain, Om Rain, Om Rain.

    The weather has been so beautiful lately that it seems unnatural for an Oregonian to go this long in March without some sky water. I just don't want to start a long run of precipitation. I have been supplementing my diet with YouTube videos, but it's just not the same...
