Miscellaneous Information

New To The Project?

If you are new to the project, here’s how it works. We each commit to 30 days of doing our best to explore, experience, and/or do the tasks, ideas, or concepts presented. Along the way, we comment and share how it’s working for us, the ups, the downs, the stuff that comes up. When the 30 days are up, we take a look back and decide if what we did was worth continuing, or if what we learned was worth sharing.

Also, know that you can join in at any time, you don’t have to worry if you aren’t up for the whole 30 days… hit and miss is perfectly fine, and actually it’s how most of us have worked these projects over the years.

If you want to participate, I would love to have you on board. All that is required is a willingness to give it a go. To keep the idea fresh in everyone’s mind, I try to post something relevant but new every day for the full 30 days.

To stay in the loop you can like and follow our Facebook page. Or, if Facebook isn’t your jam, you can add this site to your favorites and check it every day for new content. If you are enjoying the project, we’d love it if you’d like, comment, and/or share our posts on any social media platform that you use. This gives a real boost of energy and enthusiasm to the project. So, thank you in advance for your support.

Have something to say or share?

I love it when people leave comments about their concerns, ideas, insights, experiences, doubts, expectations, or anything else that you are thinking about as we work together on this project. So, don’t be shy about commenting. Your email address is not required, and if you don’t want to leave your name, that’s OK too. The only thing that’s not alright is comment spam, or unrelated nonsense. Those comments will be deleted when I see them.

Oh, and by the way:

This project is free, to join in is free, there is nothing to buy, and nothing is being sold. You won’t even see any ads on this page, or any page of this blog. How cool is that? It truly is a labor of love.

I do, however, have a link to all my little online shops which you can find either in the sidebar (if you’re on a PC) or at the bottom of the page (if you’re on a smart phone). I love when people actually buy something I designed… and if you aren’t in a buying frame of mind, a share or a shout out on social media would be nice.

Also, you will find a lot of cool and interesting stuff if you scroll all the way down the page. We have  a Ganesh Oracle, an Ask The Oculatum widget, and lots of other bits of fun. Check it out.

Hi Guys!

It’s been quite a while since we did a project, and I think I’m finally ready to get going with a new one. I’m not quite ready to post the details, but I’m pretty excited about it, and am already getting a nice result from what I’ve done so far.

Basically, it’s going to be about failure and not meeting goals or measuring up to the expectations we have for ourselves. I have been spending a ridiculous amount of time fretting and regretting my many false starts and screw ups. I think I might have found a great way to bypass all of that and free up that energy. So!

Stay tuned. More is on the way. I’m hoping to start the project on January 1, just in time for all those annoying New Years Resolutions that we never seem to quite be able to fulfill.

If you’re interested in joining in, I’d love to have some company on this new journey!

A Quick Update

I don’t know if anyone was paying attention, but if you have, you will be wondering what happened when we “Asked The Archangels For Help” and then suddenly there were no more posts. So what happened was, I have been down for the count. I went to Comic Con, and came home with the flu, and the Project came to an abrupt halt.

Initially, I had thought I’d upload the missing posts and back date them, and then continue as usual. But now that I am actually here getting ready to do it … I think that I will simply upload all the rest of the Sixty Second Wealth Creators.

To everyone who spends time on this little project, thank you so much for your support and participation. I hope you find something useful or interesting.

Bright Blessings!


Where Do We Go From Here?

It looks like the Ganesh Project is all wrapped up, and now it’s time to decide what comes next. Back in 2007, we did the Million Dollar Experiment after the project to Invoke Ganesh, but if I remember correctly, we all hated it. So, that’s a project that I will be uploading behind the scenes and not saying too much about. After that one, however, we did one on Lady Luck. And I am contemplating revisiting it, because hey… wouldn’t it be fun to win the lottery?

So, stay tuned while I think about it. Comments, ideas and feedback would be greatly appreciated ~ as always!

Something To Focus On

I talked to Go Daddy today, and they think the website will be completely migrated by tomorrow noon… So let’s all focus on how great it is that shirleytwofeathers.com will be a secure site, and how awesome it is to get back to business as usual… I definitely need some help with this, because I’ve been obsessing about how inconvenient it is … and bla bla bla… so… maybe if we all focus some good vibes they’ll get it done.

On a side note:

The site is apparently complicated and unusual, and they are having to do the entire migration by hand… and then they have to check all the gazillion links… manually as well, I think… so… hey, those guys need some good vibes !


The migration is now complete, but there are still some minor issues that need to be resolved. Thankfully, the site is up and running and I can post on it again!

Happy News!


The spam issue has been resolved and comments are once again enabled. I’d love it if you’d take the time to leave a comment, even just a word or two, so that I can test to see if it’s working properly for “real people.”

Drastic Action

I had to take some drastic action due to the ridiculous amount of spam comments I suddenly started getting today. At last count it was up to 1286 comments … and the comments were coming in faster than I could delete them. I tried a couple of spam blockers, one of them temporarily broke the site… SIGH… so, just for today, and just for now, the comments have been disabled completely. I need to have some time to figure out what to do, and how to handle it. Anyway… comments can be left on our facebook page… love to all, and bright blessings!

About the Didgeridoo

The didgeridoo is probably the world’s oldest musical instrument, originating in the world’s oldest continuous culture: the indigenous peoples of Australia, whose culture is believed to be at least 40,000 years old.

It is a musical instrument with resonant properties. The size of the Didgeridoo also known as a “Drone Pipe” varies from 3 to 10 feet.  The length is directly related to  the pitch or key of the instrument. This instrument bonds with the player and teaches the player how to use it therapeutically.  It has a very soulful sound that vibrates as it seems to open emotions and blocked chakras in a person’s energy field.

The didgeridoo is played with continuously vibrating lips to produce the drone while using a special breathing technique called circular breathing. This requires breathing in through the nose whilst simultaneously expelling stored air out of the mouth using the tongue and cheeks. By use of this technique, a skilled player can replenish the air in their lungs, and with practice can sustain a note for as long as desired. Recordings exist of modern didgeridoo players playing continuously for more than 40 minutes.

Authentic Aboriginal didgeridoos are produced in traditionally oriented communities in Northern Australia or by makers who travel to Central and Northern Australia to collect the raw materials. They are usually made from hardwoods, especially the various eucalyptus species that are endemic to the region. Generally the main trunk of the tree is harvested, though a substantial branch may be used instead.

Aboriginal didgeridoo craftsmen hunt for suitably hollow live trees in areas with obvious termite activity. Termites attack these living eucalyptus trees, removing only the dead heartwood of the tree, as the living sapwood contains a chemical that repels the insects.

Various techniques are employed to find trees with a suitable hollow, including knowledge of landscape and termite activity patterns, and a kind of tap or knock test, in which the bark of the tree is peeled back, and a fingernail or the blunt end of a tool, such as an axe is knocked against the wood to determine if the hollow produces the right resonance.

Once a suitably hollow tree is found, it is cut down and cleaned out, the bark is taken off, the ends trimmed, and the exterior is shaped; this results in a finished instrument. This instrument may be painted or left undecorated. A rim of beeswax may be applied to the mouthpiece end. Traditional instruments made by Aboriginal craftsmen in Arnhem Land are sometimes fitted with a “sugarbag” mouthpiece. This black beeswax comes from wild bees and has a distinctive aroma.

The didgeridoo has apparently been known to indigenous Australians throughout the entire history of their culture. Indeed, some Dreamtime stories mention the didgeridoo in a prominent role.

Dreamtime is the “time before time,” that is, the time before the world and the things in it took on their present-day forms, and when the gods were still actively present in the world.

One Dreamtime story explains how a particular god carried his didgeridoo by tying it to his back so that it stuck out behind. When the god later transformed into a bird, the didgeridoo sticking out behind became the bird’s long, narrow tail.

In another Dreamtime story, three gods get together to play didgeridoo, sing, and dance. In this story the gods also have bird-forms; Giddabush (a bird also known as the “long-tailed fashion”) is the didgeridoo player, the Butcher bird plays clapsticks and sings, and the Piwi bird dances. As they play, dance, and sing, they name (and hence create) all of the things in the world. When they have finished their work of naming things, Giddabush, Butcher bird, and Piwi pass on the didgeridoo, clapsticks, songs, and dances to humans, and the indigenous

Australians have in turn passed these things down from generation to generation. Given that these Dreamtime stories show the didgeridoo as an essential tool in the creation of the world as well as a device invented directly by the gods, it isn’t surprising that the didgeridoo is a sacred instrument.

It’s A Rest Stop

Now that our Little Engine The Could project is over, I’ll be working behind the scenes getting ready for the next project which is due to begin May 15.

I think we are going to do a project based on the Abundance Formula by Astarius, featuring didgeridoo, chanting, and a collection of talks. I’ll have more information on this next project soon.

If you have any ideas about what you might like to explore in the future, please, leave a comment and let me know.

In the interim, I’ll be moving the Feng Shui and Decluttering project we did way back in 2007. Those posts, which were originally uploaded to our old blogger blog, will be back dated to reflect the original project, and the comments will also be transferred.

What’s Next?

I am currently taking suggestions for upcoming projects. The next one is scheduled to begin on April 1st, and while I do have a good idea of what I’d like to explore, I am open to ideas and input. So, if you have anything you’d like to try, now is a good time to put in any requests you might have.

Current Project

Our current project began on July 4. We are exploring the concept and practice of Radical Self Care . Feel free to join in at any time!

Interested? You can visit our current project page, or you can take a look at the About The Project page if you are curious about the concept.


Please feel free to join in at any time! No experience necessary.
