Gotta love free books

Anyone wishing to begin their exploration of the chakras, and how they relate to the modern goddess gal, you'll love The Goddess Guide to Chakra Vitality. I particularly love the section where you select a symbol that you resonate with, then a number, and the combination leads you to unique message for the day. In the past year, I've only selected the same combination twice, meaning I have received 49 unique messages each morning to give me an excellent start to each day.

The author is offering free copies of the 1st edition of this book (ie, a "lite" version) at Outing the Goddess Within ... go get 'em tigress mother!

1... Rubber
2... Plucka
3... Roast
4... a la Orange
5... Paddle
6... Lucky
7... Dackity
8... Leg
9... Out4a (this is a cricket terminology)
10... Golden (this is a cricket terminology)
11... Champagne (this is a cricket terminology)
12... Sbum
13... Bill

How to buy things, without buying into consumerism

I mentioned in an earlier post that shopping is a passion for me... Let me clarify, however, that I approach "shopping" in a holistic way in order to avoid "consumerism"... Before I go shopping, there are always three questions I ask myself in order to avoid contributing to rampant consumerism:

1. Do I really need this item?
2. If I didn't have a credit card, would I pay cash for this item?
3. How is buying this item going to help my fellow countryman?

Answering these questions honestly means I whittle away the "stuff" that ends up being clutter, and I save money by only buying that which enhances my life and my local economy. It also means I tend to make choices towards organic, home-made and locally produced products. A three-way-win for shoppers everywhere.

So in accordance with these rules, one safe destination for shopping is Femail Creations - handmade creations by women for women.

As I am supporting a friend through breast cancer at the moment, any company that offers $$ towards the breast cancer research is a winner in my book. Femail Creations was already one of my favourite online destinations for shopping for girly stuff, but now it has gone stellar in my eyes... 10% of sales go to the pink ribbon coffers, definitely meeting criteria #3 in my shopping rules.

Win a portrait ... of you!

I've been a fan of Kim's spectacular work ever since our "travelling bra" days. But I got especially excited today when I visited her laketrees blog and found an irresistible competition listed there...

Kim is offering one of her gorgeous portraits (of your choice) as a prize in her third annual competition... satisfy your inner Narcisist and have your own portrait done. Or surprise your partner for Xmas and get one of him or her done... perhaps you want a lifetime keepsake of your son or daughter... Kim is so talented she'll even paint your favourite pet if you so choose when you win.

Considering the value of this prize is $6,000 (+ postage!) I reckon this is the most valuable competition I've seen whilst blogging. Thanks Kim for the opportunity!

Wishcasting with the Wish Goddess

Played with this groovy little "wish card" maker at today. It's like making a vision board, only doing it online by dragging images onto your preferred background.

Came up with the vision of me "shopping with grace, like a princess, with a never-ending supply of dollars, and of course for the greatest good of all!"

This vision made me feel WONDERFUL... then the real world kicked back in and it was back to the grindstone in order to earn the dollars in order to achieve this wish, he he he ;-)))
