Melisa Caprio, author, photographer and creator of Postcards to the Universe™ A Global Movement for Manifestation, is inviting people from around the world to participate in this movement. The project uses photography, art, personal wishes and desires from people around the world, who then send them out to the Universe in the form of a a postcard. Melisa then photographs the image, the art and personal handwritten desire. The postcards are then turned into a book which is a beautiful visual representation of people creating and manifesting their greatest inner desires.
Melisa's inspiration comes from a desire to have a forum where people come together in creative ways for global change. She sees a need for growth, inner reflection, inspiration and healing in the world and its people. The book that are created with the postcards are meant to inspire through collaboration using art and photography. Melisa is currently giving workshops on photography, art, transformation and manifestation. She guides her clients on how to create a unique postcard for added effect on the power of creative intention. The Postcards to the Universe website is interactive, where Melisa features the postcards that she receives on her blog.
