The Meaning to Pause Bracelet

This is a device designed to interrupt our day. It is a bracelet that vibrates at set intervals (every sixty or ninety minutes) reminding us to Pause. The concept is very similar to Phyllis Tickles Casio watch (see Gary Jones’s article “On Spiritual Discipline”). It is not unlike the monastery bells which chime five times a day calling everyone to prayer, or the Muslim call to prayer which even summons the street venders in NYC to stop and pause for prayer.

It is a wakeup call that brings us out of our trance and back to the present moment.

Here are a few suggestions on how to pause:

  • Take a few deep cleansing breaths
  • Reflect on the abundance in your life
  • Text a family member with an uplifting message
  • Be still and know that God is with you…right now
  • Forgive someone for something they have done
  • Recite your favorite prayer
  • Pray for someone who is ill or suffering
  • Stop and be grateful for the beauty around you
  • Give thanks for all the blessings in your life
  • Drop your shoulders, breathe, and relax
  • Look in the mirror and SMILE

To order a bracelet:

“Living in the moment brings you a sense of reverence for all of life’s blessings.”
—Oprah Winfrey
