It all started as a young girl growing up and attending school in Brazil. I often had to pass a rundown elderly home. The condition and unpleasant odors were things I could not erase from my mind. My thoughts and prayers were always with the people living under these conditions. My desire is to one day make a difference in their lives.
The years following my departure from Brazil led me in many different directions but that rundown elderly home was never far from my thoughts. I worked hard, saved as much money as I could, but it was never enough. I finally ventured into a business where my clients helped with their generous contributions, and made possible the purchase of new mattresses for every bed, the renovation of the unusable bathrooms and facilities at this elderly home. It was a great first step of improvement for their basic needs, but I knew it was only the beginning. About five years ago, I did not get the funds I projected. As I looked at the bottled water I was drinking, I decided to write the word ‘believe’ on the bottle. This word of affirmation enriched my visualization and helped me stay focused. I kept that bottle with me everyday and wherever I went. Gradually, I began to believe that I could accomplish this project. I have then realized that the answer to my own obstacle had already been revealed in front of me. This great idea of bottled water with words of affirmation to help create a positive state of mind has helped me, and I believe it can make a difference to others.
It was important to me that my water has the best quality, taste and come from people who care about the environment. It took me two years traveling from local springs to Alaska, researching companies, tasting water, until I finally found everything I was looking for in Utah. I left no detail unattended. I hiked up a steep mountain for an hour and a half to reach a federally protected spring site at 5,000 feet above sea level. The surrounding natural energy was abounding and captivating. All my senses were flourished. I knew that this is the source of water for which I was searching. I proceeded to learn the complete filtering and bottling process. I was pleased that the water is filtered through many state of the art filtering systems, and even has a laboratory onsite to test the water every hour to make sure the water is bacteria free and up to its high standards. The accolade of being approved and members of FDA, IBWA, NSF and U-symbol reveals its pristine quality. My research didn’t stop there; I proceeded to visit the workplace, met the employees, and discovered that most of them have been with the company for ten years or more. They were all happy working there. I was convinced then, that this was the avenue for me.
It all came together as ‘State of Mind Water’, with words of affirmations such as ‘Love’ and ‘Compassion’ (‘Believe’, ‘Peace’, ‘Hope’ and ‘Faith’ in the near future). I have always believed that our mind and thoughts are powerful mediums to drive us to get where we want to go, and be where we want to be. I’m hoping to make a difference in this world with my product and my experience, starting with one person, one day at a time. I believe that together we can improve and change the world we live in. After all, ‘Our thoughts can change our world’.
Now, I look at my bottled water knowing and feeling that my dream of rebuilding that elderly home in Brazil will be A DREAM COME TRUE.
