Lorraine was our guinea pig, and a cute one at that! The first person in the world to receive Message Eggs and an old friend of ours from Australia, who has also settled in England.
Lorraine was celebrating her 40th birthday in grand style in London and was so pleased her dear Mama could be there for it; she was living with cancer at the time. She talks about Message Eggs (formerly Metta Eggs) at weddings in the second video clip.
There is no roadmap for grief as they say. At least the Message Eggs gave Lorraine comfort and joy along the way, and perhaps act as something of a compass.
How did it feel to receive Message Eggs?
“I felt liked, loved and appreciated by words that often go unsaid. What amazed me were all the different things people remembered about me. I had no idea.
“Looking back, the messages remind me of much of myself I’d forgotten. I want to get back in touch with that.”
What was it like to crack the eggs?
“I loved cracking the eggs to find my special messages. I loved the way the clay crumbles into the glitter. And the treasure chest will be treasured forever too.”
What would you compare it to?
“The only thing that compares to experiencing Message Eggs is that first hug with a long lost dear friend where it feels like not a minute has passed.
Would you like to share the experience with anyone else?
"Love and appreciation that often goes unsaid."
