Abraham Says Hi – A Little Greeting From the Great Beyond

Abraham Says Hi - inspiration from the universe

Abraham Says Hi - Thea's Things

Abraham Says Hi

It’s Easter Monday, lunch time, and Abraham says hi.

Though I have several other blogs in various stages of completion, I thought I’d write a quick one today about this,..the dream I had this morning. In my dream Abraham said “hi” to me.

Who the F**K Is Abraham?

Well Abraham could refer to someone in the Bible, but in this instance, I am referring to a set of beings that we may refer to as a collective unconscious or infinite intelligence – that are channeled through Esther Hicks.

Relax. I don’t really want to go too much into the spiritual woo-woo-ness of it all, my beliefs are my own, but rather am here to tell the story about my dream this morning…

Easter Sunday Sadness

Before I get to the dream, I need to back up and tell you about my head space yesterday. I’ll be honest, I had a bit of a low-ebb Easter Sunday.

If you (or I) look at it objectively, it was entirely GOOD…Nice breakfast, a walk to Aberdour’s Black Sands Beach, followed by a lovely tea and scone after. Then I helped my friend John design his first book for KDP using Canva. I left Aberdour and had a nice drive on part of the Fife’s Scenic Coastal Route.

See? All good…

But, I just wasn’t feeling all that good.

I was feeling heavy hearted to be more precise.

Perhaps sad thinking about my dad and how he always used to say “Happy Bunny Day”…This the first year he didn’t say it…(at least not with his voice but maybe what Ralph Says it came in a different way today).

It was just like a dull gray cloud was over me.

That’s rare. I am usually pretty upbeat and finding the good in joy in all but yesterday I was just off.

Went to bed around my usual midnight and woke up seven hours later.

My Dream of Abraham

So in my dream, I was walking into a subway station (looking rather like Buchanan Street Underground in Glasgow).

A man collapsed to the ground and was a bit of out it.

Another man said to me “can you sit with him?” (Both men were attractive, I vaguely remember thinking!)

The collapsed man said, “Do you know Abraham?” and I paused not knowing how to answer that, and if we were talking about the same Abraham…

“Abraham?” I queried.

“Esther Hicks’ Abraham”.

“Yes.” I replied.

“Abraham says ‘hi”. He stated, and as he said that, my whole body was tingling. Head to toe. (This happened recently when my father came to me in an intense dream…)

Then I said “Wait am I dreaming? Or am I awake? Is this real?” And I looked at him, and around, and I exclaimed, “Damn it I am dreaming.”

As if to say “no, this is not real, It’s just a dream”.

Is it?

I reckon that if Abraham is real that’s exactly how it would come to me in a dream state, as there is no resistance to such concepts.

Is Abraham real or not? Maybe aye, maybe naw…

All I know is that I enjoy listening to Esther and Abraham immensely, so even if it’s not real, who cares? It gives me pleasure and it resonates with me any way.

For other people it may be religion or the bible or something else. Whatever works for you is my motto.

I feel like now my father is i the mix with Abraham so it gives me comfort to think that Ralph Says Hi too.

POD Inspiration Comes From Everywhere

So as I started to “come to” after my rather odd-but-cool-dream, I thought, “there’s a tshirt in that”. It felt like a sign.

Imagine wearing an “Abraham Says Hi” Tshirt or hoodie, and all the other Abraham Hicks fans smiling knowingly at each other as if it’s a “sigh”.

Naturally I made some designs as soon as I got up today. Perhaps I’ll even make a journal to accompany it. Notes from Abraham, and the great beyond. Ha!

In any case, I’m listening...to Abraham to my gut, the universe or anyone anywhere who’s giving me creative ideas like this. It’s fun!

Frankly I’d love to be able to do what Esther Hicks seemingly can, tapping into that infinite source of wisdom, sign me up!

In the meantime, if you’re looking for a sign, this is it, Abraham Says Hi.

Thea’s T-Shirts: A Design a Day on Red Bubble & Merch Too

Just a really quick update about the world of Thea’s t-shirts. In particular how I am doing a “Design a Day” on Red Bubble & Merch By Amazon Tees too.

So this whole t-shirt thing started last summer – when I stumbled across a video about Merch by Amazon. I was desperately trying to find ways to make some money for my dad – via Ralph Says Things . I loved the idea of making a few bucks for t-shirts for the auld yin.

The royalties seemed amazing. Like $7.00 if you priced a shirt at $19.99. Not bad eh?

At first, I thought it would take a week, or maybe a month, to be approved by Amazon. How wrong could I be?

Around eight months later, it finally happened. Last week! Yippee.

Week One on Amazon – Tier 10

The first shirt that went live on Amazon Merch was simply the Gaelic word “Cosagach” – meaning “Snug” or “Cosy” if you believe Visit Scotland… Or it may actually have a less favourable interpretation if you were to ask a proper Gaelic-speaking Scot…That said, it may actually mean more about “Wet Moss than Warm Blankets”

Within 90 minutes of the shirt going live – it had a sale! Admittedly it was a friend in Michigan, but still. A sale’s a sale. And it was nice to be off to a good start.

So as I am writing this blog, I decide to go get the link to said shirt and I see some ASSHAT has actually copied my design EXACTLY – the same font, same style, making no effort what-so-ever to make it his or her own.

Charles Caleb Colton said “Imitation is the greatest form of flattery” – but what just happened with that shirt was actually lazy forkin’ theft.

Sure go ahead, nick the word, and make it your own, but the asshat stole all of it and that’s decidedly UNCOOL, man.

F-U.

The Next Day was a Ralph Says Things Shirt.

Have you been following Ralph on Social. He’s “Ralph Says Things” on everything (e.g. @ralphsaysthings). The whole idea was to give him a bit of a reason for living. Something fun to focus on. It’s not making us loads of money but hey it amuses me, him and a few other folk who follow him so that’s cool.

Music is Better Than Everything

I’m quite pleased with the next t-shirt (which I am sure will be nicked in a matter of minutes…if my random Gaelic one was…) But it’s about my one, true love, MUSIC. I love music more than everything and so I made a shirt that said as much. If you’re a music fanatic or know someone who is, the please buy it and help me “tier up” to the next level in Amazon Merch. Apparently I need to sell 10 shirts to move up? I think so anyway, we’ll see. 4 shirts in so that means 6 to go. Rock and Roll. Pun intended.

The next t-shirt I designed this week was the Canyon City. It’s a private, limited edition shirt you’ll only have access to it if you come to the gig. Find out more on last week’s blog Canyon City Glasgow. If you’re near Glasgow do pop along. It’s going to be incredible.

There’s another one about being a non-parent too…

Not sure what I’ll do for tomorrow’s upload.

At Tier 10 you can only have 10 designs live.

Design a Day on RedBubble

Click the pic to check out Thea's Design a Day - Scoop Neck TeesMeanwhile I am seven or eight months in on RedBubble…and on a whim I decided to do a Design A Day for 2018. I’ve mostly been keeping up with it, but rather foolishly realised I’d uploaded the same design twice and now I am one behind (Day 16). So two on Day 17 I guess?

I sort of call what I am doing on RB – more “Positiva-Tees” if you see what I mean. They’re all pretty upbeat…Love, music, life, mind/body/spirit type stuff…

The great thing about RedBubble is that all the products can go on a variety of merchandise – mugs, clocks, apparel of all sorts, stationery, and so forth.

You can check out the men’s classic t-shirts here.

While I am not selling much on RB, I’ve not actually promoted my stuff there much so it’s not too surprising. There are moments I get a bit disheartened but then I remember I absolutely LOVE designing these shirts in Canva and creating these designs.

So at the end of the day it’s about the “MindLESSness” and Joy and less about the moolah. For now anyway.

I’ve not decided whether my “Design-A-Day” will be for the month of January or if I will try to do it for the year.

What do you reckon?

Well it’s nearly 2am so it’s time to close I think.

Thanks for popping by.

Please treat yourself or someone else to a t-shirt.

If not, then maybe simply share one somewhere.

Or not. Your call.

Cheers all.
