Eat. Pray. Love.....Chant?

I watched the movie Eat. Pray. Love. last night. Didn't read the book, but I liked the movie. My mom got it on Netflix and let us borrow it. Definitely, would say it was a "chick flick" as my hubby passed out within the first five minutes of the movie. For anyone that has seen it, I am seriously considering making a "baby box" and putting it under my bed like Julia Robert's friend did in the movie. Sort of kidding, sort of not. I'm all for special tricks, fertility statues, fertility symbols, prayer, anything that might help. Which is whyyyy, I'm going over to my friend's house tomorrow night for some type of psychic/Indian fertility ritual/healing circle excitement. Not exactly sure what is going to occur there, but we are very excited about it. My friend is also struggling to get pregnant and we are willing to try anything here. She has a friend who is actually a psychic and she asked if we would want to try some type of fertility ritual. And we said HELL YEAH :) So we'll see what happens! My friend and I have been joking about sacrificing a goat while chanting tomorrow night. Seriously, just joking. :) So I will let you all know how it turns out!

My mom got me The Book of Awakening by Mark Nepo for Christmas. You read one entry a day. And it has a quote and a meaningful message in each one. I'm really enjoying it. It only takes a minute to read, and so far I'm loving every entry. I definitely recommend going out and buying it. Today's quote was...

"If you want to be truly understood, you need to say everything three times, in three different ways. Once for each ear...and once for the heart."

I read the book and loved it but haven't seen the movie. Glad to hear you liked it.

I hope the Fertility thing you did with your friend was fun (and that it works!!!!)
