“Read the book and you will believe that you can change your life. Do the exercises and you will change your life.” —Dr. Elisa Robyn, PHD in psychology and author of The Way of the Well and Pirate Wisdom.
Open a conversation with the world around you. We have the ability to be in open communication with the Universe, the loving energy behind all creation. But do we listen to what the Universe has to say? Do we use our own voices to speak back? Artist-photographer, popular radio host, and blogger Melisa Caprio helps us enter into deep conversation with the Universe through combining creative visualization with the power of intention.
Identify the desires of your heart. Too often we are so caught up in daily life that we don’t stop and ask ourselves what we truly desire. While it is tempting to stay in our comfort zone, our heart longs for more than the mundane. It desires manifestation. Caprio is here to foster that state of mindfulness and spirituality through photography, postcard art, written messages, and affirmations from others who are living their greatest desires.
Harness your own spiritual power. Creators, mystics, artists, and spiritualists will find representation and inspiration in this book. Likewise, those who have been putting their dreams on hold or who are dissatisfied with the status quo will find this book to be a visual guide to attaining the creativity they long for in their lives. Each of us possesses the power to bend the ear of the Universe and share what it is we want most.
- Put mind over matter and pursue your deepest desires
- Form an active and poignant relationship with the Universe
- Reach your full potential and feel empowered to live an inspired and successful life
If books such as The Universe Has Your Back, Becoming Supernatural, and Mind to Matter have spoken to you, then you’ll love Melisa Caprio’s Postcards to the Universe.

Read an Excerpt
What is manifestation? Many people are throwing around that word. So, what does it mean exactly? Manifestation is when something materializes into form. Whether that be something physical that you wanted all the way to new relationships, jobs, and circumstances by using the Law of Attraction. It is the magnetic power of the Universe that draws similar energies together. It manifests through the power of creation, everywhere and in every area of your life. This law attracts thoughts, ideas, people, situations and circumstances, both good and bad. You cannot escape this law. When I first heard about it, I thought, well that stinks. Now I have to take some responsibility on some of the terrible things that happened in my life. And yes, we do. The good news about finding this out going forward is I have much more power in what happens in my life. I am not a victim to circumstances. I am co-creator with the Universe. I have a lot more control over what my life will look like moving forward than I realized. I cannot stress this enough! Find out what stories you tell yourself. Your beliefs run the show, and the Universe will always respond to what we believe about ourselves. If you want to know where you are in your belief system, look at what you want that you don’t have and ask yourself why. The answers are there. By taking the time to do a little archeological digging of your psyche, you will discover a gold mine. Don’t you deserve to know? If it were a loved-one, and they were struggling with something, you would go above and beyond to understand "the why." Give yourself that same consideration. Love yourself above everything else, and your abundance will grow exponentially. You won’t even have to try, things just show up. You will become a master manifestor. The Universe loves us and wants us to have what it is we desire. Too many of us focus on what we don’t have, and that is the energy that expands. The Universe only responds to our energy, so if lack is where we are, it shows up as more lack. But, if you can shift into abundance and gratitude, the Universe brings you more of that. We are co-creators with the Universe in what happens in our lives. We have so much more power than we realize. When you believe in magic, magical things happen.

Jamie Dawn, CSC, 12radio host, success coach, and author of Evolutionary Revolutionary®
“Melisa Caprio’s, Postcards to the Universe makes a galactic case for believing in the bigger YES surrounding us. Her solid divergence from the Glam-i-fest genre offers a refreshing perspective that compels participation and propels results. If ever there was a time to embrace her words of hope and inspiration, it would be now. Postcards to the Universe didn’t just help me find my superpower, it became it.”
Mark Husson, founder and CEO of 12Entertainment Corp. Home of 12Listen and 12Radio.com and author of Lovescopes: What Astrology Knows about You and the Ones You Love

But do not just read it, do the exercises and watch your world change. This book will help you clarify what you want and send this message to the Universe. Melisa Caprio’s methods are powerful and transformational. Her writing is clear and inviting. Once I started reading I could only put it down to follow her advice.

“‘I completely let go of that dream, but it didn’t let go of me.’
“As I read Melisa Caprio’s Postcards to the Universe: A Global Movement for Manifestation , that beautiful line really grabbed me: ‘…but it didn’t let go of me.’ I knew I was about to learn new tools about my favorite subject, intentional, mindful manifestation, and I knew Melisa was sharing something powerful with us all. Manifestation is like breathing. We can’t help but do it, and, most of the time when we are, we are not aware of it. Through a series of stories from Melisa and others, some exercises that open doors to freedom, and some gorgeous pieces of visionary art, Melisa guides us to the awakening of our ideal lives. Her book is the guidebook on the journey from the dream that is too impossible to create to the life that is that dream. This book is a box full of excitement called Postcards to the Universe.”
Sam Beasley, Author of Your Life Is Your Prayer and Wealth and Well-Being Workbook: Overcoming Barriers to Financial Independence
“ Postcards to the Universe is a beautiful tribute to the power of the mind. Melisa Caprio clearly captures the steps to manifesting that anyone can follow. This book is a primer for manifesters just getting started and a great refresher course for veteran manifesters. Using her passion for photography, Caprio takes manifesting to the next step with the physical postcards she teaches her reader to create. Powerful!”
Kristi Brower, radio host and author of Relationships for Spiritual People.
“ Postcards to the Universe by Melisa Caprio brings to the forefront a realistic approach to Manifesting your dreams and soul’s work. Throughout the book not only does she offer practical processes to bring you in alignment with your aspirations but she does so with examples of Inspiration and PROOF. I truly recommend this to be on every night stand and in every office to remind us that we CAN achieve our dreams....one focused Postcard at a time.”
