His idea exploded around the world and nearly 10 million purple Complaint Free bracelets have been sent to people in more than 106 countries. We can send positive or negative energy into our own body, into other people's bodies and out into the world. If you've been listening to my show, you know how true this is. That means you have the responsibility of making a conscious choice to create a healthier and happier you while doing the same for the world or choosing to send harm to yourself and others. Every thought we have, word we speak and action we take has serious consequences for our health and that of others. Before we knew this, it was much easier to rant and complain. Once you understand the consequences of that behavior, it's harder to speak unkind words or allow unkind thoughts to sit in our mind, even when (or should I say, especially when?) those thoughts are about ourselves. Actually, my biggest challenge, and the main one I'm working on now, is removing the self-critical thoughts that I grew up with and that have truly become a habit of the mind. Let's join together to learn how to stop complaining and hurting.
