A Global Movement For Manifestation

Featured Postcards

Collecting Stories….

Terri scaned PC B

My background is in fine art photography and I was making a decent living as a photographer. During that period I had significant life change and was forced to do some major internal shifting. I was called to start doing something different with my photography and I created a project which turned into a book titled Postcards to the Universe, A Global Movement for Manifestation.

I am inviting people from around the world to participate in this movement by using photography, art, personal wishes and desires and sending them out the Universe via a postcard. My inspiration comes from a desire to host forums where people come together in creative ways for global change. I saw a need for growth, inner refection, inspiration and healing by combining art, photography and manifestation. I believe we inspire though collaboration and co-creation.

So how did I get people to participate? I started giving workshops, I started doing webinars, I joined FB groups and invited people to participate. I went to women’s groups, book groups, and meetups sharing my project. People really responded with interest. They wanted changes in their life, they want to manifest. I have been featured in the local newspaper and have been on three different radio shows talking about my project and step by step I am growing my movement. I am gathering more postcards and stories for the book where people are manifesting some amazing things for themselves. I have noticed that the more I put myself out there and talk to people about it the more opportunities present themselves. I started a FB author page, I created a Twitter account, Pinterest, and Instagram accounts where and I share my project. I get more and more people wanting to know about it, wanting to create a postcard and wanting to be inspired and bring about changes in their lives.

Postcards to the Universe, A Global Movement for Manifestation is part art book, part story book. It is a compelling, visual guidebook full of examples from other people who are living their greatest desire. It gives powerful images and techniques from real everyday people who have helped conjure their dreams. Readers will quickly relate to the contributors, as I have seen in the way early readers have responded to the book. That’s no surprise – the book’s powerful stories and gorgeous illustrations are an inspiring example for others to do the same in their lives.

If you are an author or an artist and you are looking for how you can start collecting information for your book, project or movement my advice would be to start with a clear mission statement. Than ask yourself what is it you need?  What is it you want to accomplish? When you can answer these questions your intuition will point you in the right direction on where to go next. Possibly you need to join a group where you share the same interests. Offer up a mini workshop on your subject. Give a lecture on your topic and ask people to share their stories. You will find people LOVE to share themselves with you if you will just ask and listen gratefully.

Jake 3 - Copy“To create and make a living, inspiring people through my art.” Artist Jake Cordero

Meet Jake.. An amazing artist who’s dream is to create art and inspire. His dream has become a reality. Jake’s art and murals are taking off and he is in hot demand! Nothing like doing a little manifesting. You are awesome Jake!

“My work begins as a reaction to my environment. My approach of artistic communication reflects influences of cultural, spiritual, musical, and poetic energies that surround me daily. The ideas for my work tend to be a complex breakdown of that environment, which began as reactions, then sparked emotional connections with the images therein. I have always been known for my psychological renderings of the complex, with a twist of the imagery that strongly moves me. One could relate to my energizing, yet relaxing metaphors on many levels. I bring so many aspects of culture, desires for change and yearning for the “in your face” nostalgia to the table, that it is truly hard for me to settle for one category of style. I pride myself on being able to blend with every color the universe has to offer and find joy in every characterization that I indulge in daily. The interpretation of my beliefs and experiences translates into works that embody the emotions evoked by my poignant life. “~ Artist Jake Cordero

Jake Cordero began his love for Art at a very young age. He is a 1st generation American, born to Cuban and Siberian parents. Being from such a diversified family, Jake was exposed to culture and its artistic beauties early on. No matter what obstacle he and his family were faced with, Art became his outlet. It was his childhood utopia.
Early on, his mother realized that he had a significant gift for Art. In Magnet Programs, Jake began to develop an inner passion for the Arts.
Jake set forth on his own artistic voyage to pursue his passion. He began with customizing murals for local franchises and schools. The demand led to starting his own mural business. Since then he has designed several murals for local schools, private residences, and local businesses, as well as contributing to Art Basel Wynwood Murals.
Jake believes that his Art is his voice and he plans to continue to exercise that voice and connect with people of all walks of life for many years to come.

Marilu Holmes Postcard B“I am a best selling author, so it is.” ~ TY

Today’s featured Postcard is by my friend Marilu Holmes:  Mother, Wife, Writer, Radio Host, Tango Dancer       and Blogess…

“I’m a best selling author” WOW, when I re-read my postcard, it gives me goosebumps, but it also makes me feel uncomfortable at the “outrageous statement” that my inner editor resists. I’ve always loved writing. I simply can’t help it. It’s the way I communicate with myself and with others. Writing is my laser beam through emotions, which allows me to resolve inner and outer conflict. Simply put, it’s the way I process Life. Until 5 years ago, my writing was confined to the pages of my diary, safely locked to myself, until artist friends encouraged me to “express”, to share with the world those pages, those thoughts, those reflections… my insights, my point of view. I didn’t think that anyone would care, but it turned out that it was meaningful to many. I then embarked in the project of writing my blog, www.DownloadsOfWisdom.com, and later on my radio show, www.blogtalkradio.com/meaningfulconnections.

I cut my hair short, separated from my husband, started dancing tango, doing Improv… and finally went back with my husband to regroup our family, this time, in a completely new and original way. Life is a work in progress, movement toward the path of least resistance, less fear and more acceptance. There’re no final solutions, no ultimate answers, and for sure, no stopping for change. I write about my journey, the same you’re in, the same we are all trying to figure out.  ~ Marilu Holmes

Iva Marc (6) A“I blossom into beauty, fragranced in success, poise, strength, wisdom and compassion. So it is.” ICM

Here is today’s featured Postcard.. I thought I would include a poem by Lord Bryon. It is fitting for her manifestation.

She Walks in Beauty

By Lord Byron
She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that’s best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes;
Thus mellowed to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.

One shade the more, one ray the less,
Had half impaired the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress,
Or softly lightens o’er her face;
Where thoughts serenely sweet express,
How pure, how dear their dwelling-place.

And on that cheek, and o’er that brow,
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent!

Angel with an Edge is the brain child of Elizabeth Lindsay….jewelry designer, creator of Token Tags.

Token Tags were created by Elizabeth as her Mother was reaching the end of her 12 year battle with breast cancer. She became inspired to make jewelry that was not only beautiful, but also had a personal meaning. Three of the most exceptional women Elizabeth has known have had breast cancer, her two Aunts and her mother, therefore this is a cause she holds very dear to her heart. Also an avid animal lover, Elizabeth’s first Token Tag was made to honor the memory of her beloved kitty “Justice ” who was with her for 15 years. She then made tags of support and love for her father to wear, this is how Token Tags were born. She has been creating heartwarming Tags ever since.

“We meet in the space & time we created lifetimes ago. Our knowing reflected in our eyes. From that moment we create a story of love & beauty in Spain & Portugal. I’m here, I’m waiting. I’m ready for this chapter to begin…My deepest gratitude” ~ Terri

Chicago is my home-town, although I’ve lived in foreign countries, I’ve always lovingly referred to my home as Chitown. I learned to speak Spanish as a child while living in Mexico for several years, and I have also called Argentina and Spain my home as well, although for limited periods. That’s not to say that I don’t dream of living in these places full-time as well…

As a child I was brought up to be practical, and not have delusional hopes. So in keeping with that I studied Accounting and became a CPA. My delusional dream of becoming an actress pursued me however, and at the ripe ole’ age of 38, I finally became a professional actress with a small bit part on HBO’s The Mind of the Married Man, which shot it’s exteriors in Chicago.

It was during these years as an actress that I followed my gypsy heart and traveled with my dear Flamenco teacher, Rosa Maria Cello to her homeland of Spain, and a love affair developed with that country. We danced flamenco at ferias in Jerez de la Frontera and Cordoba. It was the first of my many trips to Spain, and I can say wholeheartedly, that my heart belongs to Spain. My dance passion did not end at Flamenco. Tango appeared in my life quite suddenly and I was taken by its fever as well. Traveling to Buenos Aires to eat, sleep and breathe the Argentine Tango. It was a fantastic journey into the understanding of a complex dance created through an intricate improvisation between the partners. It is a dance of passion, desire and sadness, and I relish knowing its secrets.

Although I was married during these years, my husband and I grew apart early in our marriage after an infidelity came to light. Our marriage never recovered, although there were attempts on both sides to resuscitate it – it was dead on arrival by 2012. An issue with our finances led me to uncover some very shady dealings that my husband was formulating with his multiple businesses and I confronted him on my findings. It was then that I had my “aha moment”. He slapped me, and it was this action that literally, knocked the sense back into me. The thought running thorough my head was, “this is NOT acceptable!” I literary felt a shift, almost as if a chip had been reprogrammed in my mind. No matter what it is going to take-I will leave this marriage any way that I possibly could. Six months later, I was working at a fortune 100 retailer, after leaving the corporate world seventeen years ago. This was my first interview out of the gate and I snagged the job. I felt like the Universe was assisting me to plan my escape.

Alas, I am the ever hopeful romantic, and I feel like the man I have been waiting for all my life is finally right around the corner. I recently re-entered the dating world online. An interesting occurrence happened. I had a date set up on a gorgeous roof-top here in Chicago at the Godfrey Hotel. My date didn’t show, but a businessman from Italy joined me, and we had a lovely evening. He said to me, “You don’t seem upset that your man didn’t show up.” I replied, “It must be destiny that we met here now”. The Universe is ensuring that I make the right connections to meet my man. In addition the Universe knows that my heart’s desire isn’t just finding my “Soulmate”, but living in Spain…hence the small picture of Spain. Melisa had asked me to create a postcard for her project and I was delighted and this is one of many I have created for Postcards to the Universe.

Just recently I was delighted to learn I am in fact going to Feria del Caballo in Jerez de la Frontera, Spain in May THIS year. It matches the image of the card I included almost exactly!

Currently, I’m writing a memoir based on the dissolution of my marriage. The Ashley Chronicles came out of my investigations into my husband’s nefarious money dealings, and this unexpected journey led to my own personal empowerment and freedom. ~ Terri Lopez

10-9 postcards (12) - Copy

“The man I seek also seeks me. Our souls are connected before we even meet. He understands me and I him. We are partners in all things. He expresses his love for me though loyalty, kindness, respect, passion and honesty. I am his everything and he will have my heart forever…” ~ Grace

I grew up in an Italian family and have always been connected to the culture although I was born and raised in Florida. I lost my father in a tragic fire when I was ten. He was the love of my life and I compared everyman I had romantically to him. He was a wonderful man and adored my mother, brother and I. I always wanted children and figured that wouldn’t be an issue after I was married. My first husband had a similar Italian background as I, and we really did love each other. Unfortunately I looked more to him like a father figure and a romantic partner. I also became very sick with a chronic illness during that time in my life. My health is an issue I have been dealing with for the last twenty years. And because of trying to live and maintain my illness plus the medications I must take, I never had children. Not having children has been an ache I have had in my heart for a long time, especially after my mother passed away. She was my best friend and after I lost her I felt such a tremendous hole in my life. During the time of my mother’s death I was already married to my second husband. My fist husband and I parted ways in a very loving way, I realized I was not in love with him and looked at him more as a father figure than a life partner; luckily we have remained very close and are still wonderful friends.


My second husband came from a very different background than I and we were very different people in almost every way. With him I married completely out of passion. Not paying attention to any of the blatant red flags that were waving in my face. Truthfully we had nothing in common and dealt with life and its issues completely opposite of each other. He would require constant reassurance and I needed to withdrawal into myself to deal with my emotions. The more I needed space the more he got resentful and angry. When my mother got sick and eventually died, I completely withdrew. At this same time my illness which would lay dormant, came flaring back. I also was working full time. I am an administrator for nursing homes and it requires a lot of my time and energy. As all this came to a head, my husband at the time couldn’t deal with it all and did some very hurtful things to be spiteful. He was dealing with his own pain. Our marriage never recovered and we separated and finally divorced.


After some years being by myself and working on my health and focusing on my career, I decided I was ready again to find love. Melisa Caprio who I have known for many years asked me to create this postcard. I love to do arts and crafts and she asked me to go inside and create something from my heart that I really wanted to bring into my life. I was happy with where my health was at, my career was going wonderful so I decided to focus on the kind of man I wanted to spend my life with. I created this postcard in August of 2013. I am not exaggerating by saying that nine months later I met the love of my life. The man I described in this postcard. I couldn’t believe it. He is everything I ever wanted in a romantic relationship, completely different from my previous two relationships. He is the combination of the qualities, background and passion I was speaking of. We have become best friends and I can’t imagine my life before him. I recently moved in with him and I couldn’t be happier.


Melisa told me how powerful these postcards could be and I wasn’t sure that I believed her. I do now! What is even more amazing is he is Italian and his smile reminds me of my fathers. He is so much like the background I come from, our favorite thing to do together is cook homemade Italian food. I feel like home with him. An added bonus that I never expected when I created this postcard is that he has four children. So not only did I get the man of my dreams, I got the children I could never have. The Universe has delivered to me a whole put together family. I couldn’t be happier and more fulfilled! I am so glad Melisa asked me to create this postcard. I may have gotten it on my own but I really believe that actually sending it to the Universe gave it that extra power I needed to manifest my relationship. I am forever grateful. ~ Grace

In a period of 3 months my life changed. I lost my marriage, the best job in the world, my job photographing dolphins and children and my home. It sent me straight into a major depression and sadness. I was lucky enough to be able to move in and stay with my family. During that first year I don’t think I did much of anything but cry and rage. During this difficult period is when I went inward as we usually do when hit with a major life change. I discovered many transformational teachers, spiritualists and authors. It opened me up to new ways of thought and new ideas that I never would have plunged into if it weren’t for what happened. It caused me to start praying, journaling and receive coaching. I delved into these books about grief, forgiveness, spirituality and transformation. It along with my beloved books was the only thing that kept me going for a while. This is when I discovered the law of attraction and manifestation. The idea that I attracted these things to me and I was somehow accountable for what happened was a total mind blow. I thought no way; I never would have attracted that. But as I went deeper inside I realized that energetically I did attract these things. The law of attraction is not about attracting what we want, because who would want to bring about things that are painful? It’s about what we believe. It’s tricky and complex on how it works, we carry many beliefs inside. On the one hand I always believed I was meant to do some big things with my life. So the life I was living before was not supporting that idea. The Universe than forced a major life change to cause me to re-evaluate. I also had a belief that my needs were not as important in a relationship as my partners, so of course I attracted someone who obviously believed it too and mirrored that back. Put these different beliefs together and it made up the perfect storm, which caused the perfect breakdown which in turn has created the perfect re-birth.

Fast forward a few years and in the middle of the night between wake and sleep I heard very clearly “Postcards to the Universe.” I had no idea what it meant but it felt very significant and divinely given so I got up, went online and bought the domain name. I then went to sleep and left it for a while. I have always been fascinated with people’s handwriting and photographing love letters especially since handwritten notes is becoming a lost art. They are so lovely and personal and I believe when someone takes the time to actually write, their energy really is infused into the letter or note. I started thinking how great it would be to photograph people’s desires and wishes for Postcards. I still had no idea on how it would look at the time.

A short time later I started taking a law of attraction course along with someone who was a web designer and they helped inspired me to finally bring my Postcards to the Universe project to fruition and create a website. There are no coincidences by the way. It has been slow and steady ever since. Something just so happens to come along or catch my attention that supports my Postcard project. The only thing that seems to stop is when fear takes over and I stop moving forward. The Universe patiently waits for me to work out whatever I need to and get back on and moving again. Someone shows up to support what I am doing and off we go. That’s how I have been interviewed on two radio shows, and my project has been featured in print many times. I am also now giving workshops leading people on creating their own unique postcards using art and photography.

I am asking people to send me a postcard with their greatest vision for their life. Whatever they want to manifest or desire for themselves. They can come to my site and use one of my images that resonate if they choose or better yet I am asking them to CREATE their own postcard. I believe it is much more POWERFUL if someone takes the time to create something unique and send it out. I am excited to say more and more people are creating and sending me their unique postcards. I absolutely love them!

I am in process of writing my first book Postcards to the Universe, A Global Movement for Manifestation and am also writing my book proposal for publication.

Postcards to the Universe, A Global Movement for Manifestation is not just a beautiful fine art book but an ongoing project and movement. Postcards to the Universe empowers people to get clear and creative about living a life that is inspired and fulfilled. It shows the reader through art and photography people’s desires and wishes for their life. I photograph each postcard as I receive them. I intuit by each person’s specific manifestation on how I am going to photograph their postcard. The reason this book is so unique is this must be an ongoing collaboration for this to work. I get inspired by helping people get creative and those who want to collaborate with me to push this movement forward. I ask the Universe to send me other people’s desires, wishes and manifestations. It is received by those people who are looking to live their greatest life. I am turning them it into a beautiful art book featuring these postcards. Each postcard has been transformed into its own powerful, collaborative intention. This is an ongoing movement and the potential for growth is unlimited. As long as there are souls who wish to manifest and artists who wish to create. This book and project is manifestation and the law of attraction taken to a new level. It is visual, textual, conceptual desires and wishes infused with the energy and spirit of the collaborators and contributors of this project and book.

I would love it if you would take the time to participate with me in this movement and submit a postcard. You could use one of mine from my site here…just download, print, write your manifestation and send…. or better yet, CREATE your own for powerful effect!!

Thank you, much love.
