I just read...

Creating True Prosperity by Shakti Gawain. I highly reccommend it!

I am hearing a lot of confusion about what prosperity is. The introduction of The Secret to the world via Oprah has done a lot of good, but I also see it doing some harm. This confusion about what Prosperity is and how to create it is among the most troublesome.

This little book packs a wallop. If you are interested in principles of the universe like the law of attraction, you would do well to read this quiet book first published in 1997.

This was the first book I had read by Shakti Gawain, but I am going to be reading a lot more!!

New Style of Doll

I am really excited about a new style of doll that I have been working on. They are larger than any that I have done previously. They are approximately 9" tall and are made on a base of paper mache. They are Saint Dolls. Each begins with: Our Lady of.... The first two are finished and in my Dolladay Etsy Shop.

The first one is Our Lady of the Milagros.

The second one is Our Lady of the Stars.

Notes From the Universe

I get a Note from the Universe each morning.

"The notes are to help remind us all of life's everyday magic. Generally, the Notes are emailed out early each morning so that they'll catch you before you're overwhelmed into thinking like the herd, on the days of the week you choose! These inspirational, philosophical and often humorous notes are meant to remind you of the awesome power you possess for the creative manipulation of "all things time and space" - especially your happiness!"

If you are interested in getting a Note from the Universe in your email box, just go to The Adventurers Club, select Notes From the Universe and sign up.

If you are interested in THE SECRET and LAW OF ATTRACTION you might be particularly interested in these wonderful eye-openers.

There are also other fun things at the web site, like free inspirational e cards.

I just watched...

In The Realms of the Unreal

By day, Henry Darger was a reclusive janitor who had few -- if any -- friends. But at night, he became a literary artist with a unique vision. Darger's 15,000-page novel is a wonderland of imagination as it details the exploits of seven angelic sisters who lead a rebellion against child-enslaving men. Featuring the voices of Dakota Fanning and Larry Pine and the work of talented animators, this film tells the story of Darger's hidden world.

If you are interested in OUTSIDER ART this is a fascinating documentary. Henry Darger was a writer and an artist. Really a fascinating movie about a fascinating life. I highly recommend this one.

Bad Hair Day

No, I mean this was a REALLY bad hair day. Not metaphorically.

I got a haircut on Friday and was getting ready to go out for dinner with a friend before I picked my husband up at the airport. I usually don't do much to my hair. But with the new cut, I thought I would work with it a little bit. I have this styling wand (or something) that heats up and you can use it to smooth hair, curl it under, add a little body...

I haven't used this styling wand for ages, but I plugged it in, and was trying to add a little bounce to my hair. It was going well...and then...all of a sudden...the teeth caught my hair...and I don't mean a couple of hairs...a large clump of my hair was caught and I felt individual hairs ripping out of my scalp as I tried to free myself.

I was home alone...and starting to get that panicky feeling like I had when I put my wedding ring on too soon after the birth of my baby 20 years ago. (The more I tried to get the ring off my finger, the more my finger know the story...but that time I ended up at the fire department begging them to cut off my ring.)

I couldn't go to the fire department this time...and I really didn't have any good ideas what to do about my dilemma. I unplugged the hair styling tool and tried to gently free myself, but it seemed whatever I did...only a few hairs at a time were being released and more were being ripped out permanently.

So...before I started hyperventilating, I grabbed the nearest scissors...looked in the mirror and started cutting. Totally random...hampered slightly by the fact that I was not terribly coordinated cutting while looking in the mirror. hair did not stick straight up on my was a bad hair day!!

The Secret

You may have heard about it on may have heard the buzz following the two shows Oprah did about it over the past month. You may have already known it and call it something else.

It is hugely popular, it is controversial. It has been known for thousands of years by some, allegedly withheld from the masses until now...or until it has been expressed by many in various ways in recent years.

What is it? Well it is being called THE SECRET.

I watched the DVD today. Most of the ideas were not new to me, because I know quite a few people who have been in on the secret for a while now. I was slow to believe THE SECRET. In fact I am not sure that I believe it now. But I have been gradually taking more of the ideas into my personal believe system and the parts that I have more resistance to...well...I just try and live "as if" I believed them.

THE SECRET is also available in book form, and although I haven't read it, I suspect the information is very similar to that presented in the DVD.

Oprah says she has been living her life by the principles of THE SECRET and I have to say, it seems to be working pretty well for her!

Interested in finding out more about what people are talking about when they talk about THE SECRET and the LAW OF ATTRACTION? I have to say the ideas are presented clearly and well in this DVD.
