Ever have a feeling like the universe is listening to you and things happen that reflect that? And you stop for a moment and say hmmm...I was just thinking that or you had just been talking about it or reading about it...
First it was the dream catcher. I saw the bracelets online and wanted to make one but didn't have time then a few weeks ago I saw that my nephew had a dream catcher hanging in his room, which used to be MY room growing up and I had my own dream catcher. SO I finally made the dream catcher charms....
Then I was talking to my husband this weekend about making tree of life pendants because I saw them on Pinterest. BUT I used to make wire trees, years ago, they looked like this...I remember teaching my co-workers to make them for a fundraising basket we were putting together. I loved these trees.
But my husband is Jewish and said it was perfect I'd make tree of life pendants because there is a Jewish holiday Tu b'shevat (it was in January). I had no idea what he was talking about since I'm not Jewish. All I did was come across a picture on Pinterest and I remembered how I made and loved these wire trees. I thought if I could make those big trees, how easy it would be to make a pendant?
The thing is every thing just connected, the photo, my memory, my husband (who is my love), his religion, my love of trees...Life is all connected. Or should I say LOVE is all connected. So I made them and I love them and I'm going to make more.
And lastly, a month ago my body was so tight and achy and I knew what horrible posture I've had since having my baby. I rolled out my yoga mat (not that I really do yoga). I needed to stretch my chest muscles so I could really breathe. I needed to lengthen my torso so the muscles that were pulled apart for my c-section could start being "okay" again. I needed yoga. I pulled out my ipad and used the yoga app I have and did really basic poses, because I am SO not flexible. But it felt wonderful. Then I got busy and stopped but then I started up again.
Well about two months ago I added charmed bracelets to my etsy store. Hello Kitty, Hamsa, Buddha, Om, Four Leaf Clover. Just this month I've had people starting to buy the Om charm.
I just got an order from a woman who wants to give them to her bridesmaids as a gift and she signed her message to me:
"Thank you, Namaste,"
:-) That's awesome. The universe is speaking to me for real and I'm listening.
