Awesome Women: Melisa Caprio

Say ‘Hello’ to Melisa Caprio – the first-ever profile for Awesome Women Doing Awesome Things!

We met Melisa in August through the Jennifer Grace 8-week Book Proposal Accountability Course (Jaime is the editor) and knew immediately we were meeting an awesome woman who would be perfect for an AWDAT profile.

Postcards to the Universe

Melisa Caprio

So what makes this Fort Lauderdale-native so amazing?

Along with being an author and photographer, Melisa is the creator of Postcards to the Universe: A Global Movement for Manifestation.

Postcards is a vehicle for people worldwide to bring their dreams into reality through the simple yet magical process of their written words on postcards, which Melisa collects and photographs.

What kind of role does writing your wish on a postcard and mailing it to Melisa play in its manifestation? A big one! Just ask Grace, a Postcards participant whose desire, true romance, appeared in her life 8 months after mailing her postcard to Caprio.

And Grace’s real-life Prince Charming didn’t just fit one or two of the characteristics she longed for; he fit every single one – including the fact that he had 4 children, which gave Grace the family she’d always wanted.

Get up close and personal with Melisa below where she answers some AWDAT inquiries.


Melisa, we’d love to know..

1. What are your 3 favorite books?

My favorite fiction story is the Harry Potter series, anything magical attracts me. Isn’t that what the law of attraction is about, believing in the Universe’s magic? You cast your wish and the Universe delivers it. Louise Hay’s, You Can Heal Your Life has always been one of my favorites. Also The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz. I go back to that book over and over as a reminder for myself.

2. What has been the biggest adversity in your life?  How did you triumph?

Allowing other people to have so much power and control over my life. I learned the hard way that people can really hurt and disappoint you. But a lot of it was because I gave myself over instead of being in my own power. I no longer live to please others, they can join me and we can co-create together.

3. Who are 3 awesome women to you?

Louise Hay, Marianne Williamson and Oprah Winfrey. I am inspired by their journeys and what they have created for themselves. I aspire to do the same with my own life. But also I have to say my mother; she is one of the strongest, most fearless women I know. She has created such amazing things for herself and her family. I wouldn’t know what to do without her.
