Custom Fortune Cookies

posted by sera beak

“Good fortune follows you around like a drunk monkey in a little red dress.” Or how ‘bout “Look out, your spirit is taking naked pictures of you.” Or maybe, “You have the power to make angels swoon.”

At the book release party celebrating my first book “The Red Book: A Deliciously Unorthodox Approach To Igniting Your Divine Spark,” I wanted to give out something a little different, a little quirky, a little more personal. And also tasty. Fortune cookies! Not just any fortune cookies, mind you, but cookies with custom-written fortunes (the above are but three of the half-dozen I came up with). People loved them. Sure enough, there are plenty of companies that offer it, and for a relative bargain, too.

Customizing your own fortune cookies isn’t just fun, it can even be therapeutic–especially if your brain is filled with, ahem, colorful spiritual musings that might not always sound as profound as Gandhi, but still deserve to be given some sweet air. The possibilities are endless, and of course the fortunes don’t always have to fall out of you. You can use quotes from anyone you like (Einstein, the Dalai Lama, Caroline Myss, Homer Simpson, your child). Next time you’re wondering what to bring to that dinner party, or PTA meeting, or workshop, I suggest you mix a little spirit with your treats.

I used a company called fancyfortunecookies.com for my cookies, because they were one of the few who offered them in a deep sexy red (to match the cover of my book), but there are several companies out there. Click here for more.

Just can’t wait and need a fortune right now? Try this.

Your book looks fantastic; I’m turning 40 in a couple months–am I too old for it? I already have “Pronoia”, the book it’s sold with sometimes…….>

Thank you, and no you are definitely not too old for my book! I aimed the book (lingo wise) at women in their twenties and thirties – but I’m hearing the biggest response from women in their 50′s and up, hee. So, despite the young lingo, evidence shows women of all ages (and even men) are really enjoying the book. I hope you check it out – and Rob Brezsny is a dear friend of mine – I love Pronoia. warmly, sera>

CM's Final Posts: You Can Fill the Space
Eighteen years ago, I wrote an article for a magazine that got me called in for a taped interview with a Fox TV morning news anchor. Being an effective communicator and a skillful public speaker was a dream of mine at the time. And still is. After some 30 minutes of prep with the station's hair-and-

Websites to Visit, Blogs to Read
Here are some blogs and websites I like. It's not a complete list. But it's a start. The first is called New Moon Journal and it is written by Michele Bailey-Lessirard, a life coach, collage artist, and "shamanic astrologer." On the opening page of her site, you'll find a little slide show of her am

And Finally, This:
Place your burden at the feet of the Lord of the Universe who accomplishes everything. Remain all the time steadfast in the heart, in the Transcendental Absolute. God knows the past, present and future. He will determine the future for you and accomplish the work. What is to be done will be done at
