From the Universe

Often, you don't know what you can do until you do it; what you can be until you become it; or what you can have until you have it.
But hey, that never stopped you before!
Arriba, arriba, undulay, undulay

- The Universe

You're doing so well for yourself, just hope you give yourself all the credit.

Who are They?

At yesterdays trade show, I succumbed to a young ladies sales pitch about her fabulous heat packs. She could have just said "buy them - they are good" and I would have done, having needed heat packs for a while now, but she was keen to show her knowledge so I let her rant..

".... and they are so much more hygienic than the wheat heat packs that you microwave. They are trying to ban them now you know, because they harbour bacteria and can....."

My 20 second attention span had long since expired, and my mind wandered as I handed over my bartercard.....

Just who are "they". Are they the government? The police? the CSIRO? Maybe it's a vegan society who think that imprisoning wheat in a cord fabric and subjecting it to micro-waves is cruel and inhumane? Or maybe it is a secret society of genetically modified beetle who have escaped from a secret testing lab and have evolutionised into a sophisticated organisation that rely solely on wheat for their survival...

RIP Jane McGrath

A truly amazing, inspirational courageous woman. She will be missed.

10% of my cash jewellery sales will be going to the McGrath Foundation, in her honour, until 30th June.
20% of my Bartercard jewellery sales will be going to National Breast Cancer Foundation, again in memory of Jane, an extraordinary lady.

From the Universe

All you have to do is think about what you want often enough that you start talking about it and moving with it, even if you have to fake it.

Your job is simple. Even if you only "attempt" to do it, you will have done it. The slightest effort on your side is leveraged 10,000 times on my side. A nod, a wink, a whisper are sometimes all I need; a demonstration that breaks the ice, beginning a domino effect of happy "accidents" and "coincidences."

If you do this, I'll do the rest. It is that easy. I am that powerful. Life is that magical.

Thinking of your smile,
The Universe
