Bead Bracelet with Explanation

The bracelet I received had a combination of gold (clear) and rose (pinkish) beads.

According to the accompanying explanation:

  • Gold holds the warmth we feel beneath the ever-burning peak.
  • Rose holds the love we feel for both our Family and the Divine.

Handwritten Note

My head hurts...

The note is addressed to "Orphan".

  • Are we "Orphan"?

All the words in the quoted text are capitalized. Reading only the first letters of the words gives us:

  • RMTSURVIVORSORG

This is actually a website for Radiant Mountain Survivors.

The password for the website is: DT8996.

  • This is repeated twice towards the bottom of the note, meaning it must be important.

Headphones

The headphones can be used to listen to the meditation track referenced on the meditation coupon.

The card instructs us to pause at the closing of each line.

Pay special attention to the last letter of each line. A hidden message is revealed:

  • "BOW TO ME"
