I recently bought some wonderful bumper stickers of your in a gift shop on Martha's Vineyard, MA. they are brilliant. You have a great company.
Although my studio is not open yet, I want to work a small amount of retail into my business plan. I would love to go into my opening with your products, or knowing I will be able to offer them shortly after opening. I
smile every time I use my "we are all connected" mug & hope to share your
products with people in the area!
I wanted to thank your company. My first order, (of many more to come), arrived today. I like your message, product and the customer service I received.
Hi, I just wanted to say thank you. I recieved one of your hoodies for a birthday gift, it was the wrong size. I thank you for exchanging it so quickly. I will certainly let others know about The Universe Knows and how friendly and knowledgable the folks who work there are. Again thank you.
The" cherish the journey" shirt I bought that weekend has had profound importance. I bought it because of the energetic transformations and universal connections that had been amplifying in my life, and then I was "ironically" wearing it the day my father had a terrible accident (April 27)and went to the hospital to find him paralyzed with a broken neck. He moved on two weeks later with our help. Our relationship was a long story, but because of the shift I was able to make peace with him in the year before that happened and truly be there with him at that time. I was laughing and mad when I realized I had that on in the midst of that night though, for sure! I questioned everything, and I know that's normal, but than I quickly switched to holding on to that saying. Cherishing the journey, being open to it, helped me to help my Dad be at peace in his last moments here. I would wear it every day and in every color if I could. Sometimes for me as a reminder, sometimes for other's as encouragement. Would love to have that as a thoughtful note for everyone coming in to my place though, at least.

i love your tee shirts with the inspirational sayings on them. i went to a website to find t-shirts with just words on them (Joy, Intention, Awareness, Purpose, the Journey, Love, Kindness, Patience, Understanding, Inspiration, etc.) also, looking for ones that say: Energy Follows Intention, Energy Follows Attention, etc.
Too bad you don't have a create-your-own t-shirt.
I love your company and i love your t-shirts
South Kent, CT
Ron and Trish, It was great to meet both of you at the Mohonk House this weekend. I think your company has amazing potential as well as it is a true healing for all that exists. Your messages are beautiful and extend the beauty within each of you. Thank you for your time and your passion. If there is anything I can do to assist you please let me know. I'd love to hear from you, or if your going to be in my area at all.

Monday I was grateful for a layover in Minneapolis/St. Paul airport where I discovered your merchandise in a boutique. What an awesome idea! Your inspirational-wear is so on point. Thank you for following your dream so that I can wear clothing that really makes a statement about me!
Kathy, Clinton Township, MI
I’m not sure who I am speaking to but I can’t tell you how deeply touched by I am by the inspirational line of clothing you have designed.
I am a woman who in the last 2.5 years has lost her mother and her younger sister through a common illness.
I cared for both with my whole heart and soul. Both lived their lives on the premise of courage, wisdom, strength and hope. They taught me to carry on with these guiding principles of life. Because of the deep grief I carry within me now, I continue to learn and, attempt to inspire others everyday. All of your messages printed on your clothing are in exact alignment with both my mother and sister’s foundation.
I learned about your clothing from my sister’s girlfriend who gave me one of your long sleeve shirts that says: “allow the miracle”. It is one of the most comfortable pieces of clothing I have ever worn.
My goal in life now is to engage in something I truly believe in and am passionate about – you’re messages have struck my heart and inspired me. They are messages which I believe in and live by. They are messages that need to be spread. I live in the Boston area.
Sharon, Boston MA
We were visiting Michigan last week and I came upon your line of clothing at the Santa Fe Trading Company and I bought a hoodie with the message "Be the Change". It is one of my favorite quotes and I love your line of inspiration. I was invited last Friday to speak at a celebration of 12 Step recovery and I wore my shirt for the occasion both for inspiration for myself and to spread that quote. I had many comments and compliments. There are no outlets in Canada that is unfortunate, however whenever I visit the States I will look for this inspirational line of clothing. What a wonderful way to spread awareness of the goodness and gentleness that exists if we but look for it. Presenting it for all to see helps in this good expanding and that can only be a great thing. Thank you for allowing this space for me to express my gratitude. With gratitude,

I was visiting my sister here in Rehoboth Beach DE, and we went into the "Red Fish" shop..I love your clothes...the inspired sayings, the colors and material! Wanted u to know that Delaware is not listed in your locations list. Living in Ct, I checked to see where a store might be & guess what your clothes are at a Spa that is 5 minutes from my home :) Now how is that for blessings :)
Dee, Norwich, CT
Amazing stuff........well made, functional, beautiful fabrics and colors, and a sense of humor and kindness all wrapped up in a wonderful package! Where have you been all my life? Seriously, I've been in search of a clothing line for my Pilates studio for 8 years now and have always been dissatified with either the quality, functionality, price point or all of the above. Don't get me wrong on the price point aspect....I myself, as well as my clients, will pay a reasonable amount as long as the functionality and quality are there. I must tell you...KUDOS! and THANK-YOU!...your line is the first that I've found that incorporates everything I value and consistently try to convey to my clients......... "It's not just moving that matters, it's the quality and integrity and intention of your movement that makes all the difference". Now I've seen and felt the clothing that does the same. Again, thank-you!! Job well done.
Jeanette, Albany, NY
Your tee's are wonderful. Congrats on such a beautiful business inside & out...
Melissa, Boca Raton, FL
I was at Martha Clara vineyards in the fall & came across THE most adorable hat that said "Cherish The Journey". I knew there was no way I was leaving the store without buying it. Thank you so much for creating this line. I always want to wear my inspirational phrases. I am also thrilled to learn that this company is based right here on Long Island!!
Stacey, Middle Island, NY
I purchased several of your mugs at a little coffee shop in Long Grove IL, some I kept and several I gave away for Christmas. Both my friends and I enjoy them so much! I have 3, and I enjoy seeing which thought I get for the day!
I also really really hope you get the "why wait? create" mug in by that time too. I have someone that will be a perfect gift for.
I will "cherish the journey" while I wait for them!
Thanks so much and I am very happy for both you and I that you created this company!
Joanne, Long Grove, IL
dear ron at the universe knows,
This year I received a late Christmas present at the end of January. Unexpected gifts are the best kind. The gift was a tank top from your company with the words "believe in yourself". I immediately fell in love with it and studied your website. Tears came to my eyes as I read each t-shirt's message. I commend you for starting a company that can change people's lives in a single moment. Reading your simple quotes can change your life and compel you to really start living your purpose here on this earth. Your website, words and thoughts help to create a more meaningful world and your ability to share it is to be admired. Thank you for your heartfelt message of hope and joy. I felt completely inspired to write you and explain why I live my life with great passion, with those exact words as my inspiration. (download page 1, page 2 (pdf))

We met at the Mind, Body, Spirit Expo in King of Prussia and I was immediately drawn to the energy pouring forth from the table and the items displayed there. What I refer to as a cosmic coincidence had occurred shortly before that day as a friend was wearing the "allow the miracle" shirt she had purchased at one of the retail stores in the area that carries your products. Before I left, I purchase 4 shirts (3 for myself and 1 as a gift for my God-daughter) I love them! I proudly wear 'cherish the journey', 'awaken your passion' and 'follow your heart', two of which I have worn to workshops I offer called Cuddle Party....so they are getting visibility:)
Thank you for your inspiration and the love that goes into your products and out into the world :)

Your tanks are the best and the sayings are super. I work out in my tanks and have just sent a mass email to all myfriends with your website because I feel so inspired when I put your tops on. Thank you so much. I have had 2 friends email me and say they are ordering from you. I just ordered more. I'll be back soon. Thank you.

Love my t-shirts! (I teach High School PE and the kids love to read them!) PS- I am a Long Island girl myself...moved to Florida for a teaching job over 20 years ago and LOVE the sun!!!!!

I just bought a bucket hat, tank top to add to my bumper sticker. I decided to explore your website finally and lo & behold find there is something like this on LI. Even though I am much older than you, it's nice to see such wisdom in such young people. Here's to another 50 years of inspiration!!!
barbara, medford, ny
Bought some of your shirts this summer at the NEA convention-- (teacher from Hawaii) now have many teacher fans who want to buy them too... We are all about change and taking control of our lives--helping our kids by changing the politics & who tells us what to do in the classroom....Thanks!
toni , kailua kona , hi
I love your stuff! I own several shirts and I am now purchasing "just because" gifts for important people in my life. I'd like to give a suggestion for another quip, if I may be so presumptuous...
"participate, don't anticipate". I just returned from a 3 day spiritual retreat with 25 HS kids and that was our mantra whenever the kids asked for "what's next" details... it is still resonating in my head. I'd love to be able to wear my mantra next year!

My Mom and Dad arrived in FL last night after driving several days from NY and guess what? My Mom was wearing the "Cherish the Journey" shirt I gave her for her 65th birthday!
I have received so many compliments on the shirts and I feel uplifted wearing them. I bought my first shirt at the Miamo Spa at Enchantment in Sedona in December. Have you ever thought of placing your product at the New Age Health Spa in Neversink, NY? I grew up near by and visit every summer and I don't remember seeing your products there. I think they have the perfect environment for your products as they emphasize not only physical but spiritual well being. They carry quite a bit of clothing but nothing as unique as yours. Thanks again for your help.

I bought two hoodies at JFK airport (Jetblue area)from a charming young man who was the manager of a store there. I adore wearing them and wherever I go people comment on the quiet yet powerful statements on the front. In a day and age when we are bombarded with extremely strong negative imagery - it is a pleasure to wear something that reflects my values and interesting to note that as subtle as the messages are - people notice them!
I am a photographer - www.patriciastclare.com - and so far some of the people I have been shooting have all wondered if you will be making any activewear (sweats and so on)in the future. A lovely product - thank you.
Whenever I am in New York I will make a point of purchasing more from the JFK store and what I can't find there I will get from your website (such a pleasant manager at the store - I want to support his business too).
Patricia , los angeles, CA
I'm so excited to win the monthly tee shirt giveaway! Thank you! My
"Let Abundance Flow" has been my favorite hoodie this season - if I'm
not wearing it, it is usually in the washer.
Tracy , Palantine, IL
I would just like to take the time to thank you for your inspirational merchandise. It has lifted up my spirit in many ways. I plan on giving different gifts from this site to all the people in my family for Christmas. What a way to inspire and show love for them all. From coffee mugs to tees.. it all shows love. Thank you again.
LOVE your product!! I purchased 3 shirts in Hawaii and wanting more!! Any chance you will be putting out NOTICE THE MESSAGES for Mens T-shirts/Long Sleeve, Mugs or Decals? I will be the first in line to buy them. Keep up the great work!
Thank you so much for making these wonderful t's.
A friend and I found them at a The General Store in Camp Verde, Tx and we went crazy for them. We each took home 3 asking when more would be in. I am a Healing Arts/ Pain Elimination Practitioner in business for myself, so my friend told me that these could be my uniforms. Great idea. Is there a discount on multi orders? So glad you are donating to Cancer research. I have had 2 daughters with Hodkins. Thanks again.
I was so excited to come across your shirts at The Spa At Norwich Inn the other weekend. I purchased an orange tee with the phrase, "Cherish The Journey" for my best friend. I really, really, really wanted the hoodie "Be In Gratitude," and I had just been telling my friends in the locker room how I try to remember every night to thank God for the many gifts I have and it helps me cherish an even hectic day. HOWEVER, much to my dismay, the only hoodie that had that phrase was on one EACTLY the same color and style as a plain one I had bought recently. SO, I came online to see what else was offered with that phrase and was disappointed to find nothing. If you do offer it in anything else, Long or Short Sleeve tees or Tanks, please, please contact me and great luck to you. It's a great product!
I was so excited when I saw these shirts in a shop in Michigan while on holiday. My sister and I were having a China free day and low and behold the hoodie with 'be in gratutude' slogan, was the only piece of clothing that we could find that was, yes thats right, MADE IN THE USA, Yeah!!!! I plan on buying more soon, thanks I now have your website on my favorites.
I saw your merchandise at Soul Journey in Cashiers, NC, and learned of your vision and mission and was so inspired by your philosophy. I am trying to raise money for our local charity . We hold several fundraisers to raise money to take truckloads of food to needy families in North Georgia. Your philosphy is so in line with ours! I hope to be able to have your merchandise at that time for our next event. Thanks for your inspiration and courage to make the change in your career! Love it!
I recently met you at the gift show in Atlanta. Just thought you'd appreciate how we came to your product/booth. I manage a store for a married couple. There was a t-shirt line they'd looked at and were ready to purchase. While standing in front of that vendor's booth, I honestly shared with them that I didn't feel that line was a good "fit" for our shop. We do monogramming/engraving and are in an up-scale shopping center w/ Talbots, Chico's, Anne Taylor Loft, etc. The shirts were silk-screened w/ illustrations of animals and some clever wording. They listened and said "OK, we'll keep looking around."
While they stopped to look at another product, I turned the corner and saw your booth. Having recently watched "The Secret" DVD for the second time, your message/product/pearls struck me and I knew it was the perfect line to bring into our store. I LOVE the soft fabric. I LOVE the fact that they're embroidered. I LOVE the sayings on them. I LOVE the colors. I LOVE that the women have different sizes/styles to choose from.
I went to find the store owners and told them I'd found the perfect line for our shop. When they looked at your merchandise, they too really liked what they saw/read/heard. SO....I am THRILLED that they trusted my instincts. It will be even more thrilling when the shirts fly out the door and we have to keep re-ordering them. I will probably be buying more of them than any of our customers! Just wanted to share this with you to confirm what you say...the universe knows. Thanks much!
I just received my order placed at the Celebrate Your LIfe conference in Chicago. Thank you! It's beautiful and I can feel the lovely energy in each thread. I will be passing on your website to my large email list.
I found my "allow the miracle" t shirt yesterday. And it immeidately brought tears to my eyes. I'm wearing it in honor of my mother - who has melanoma stage 4 - has had 2 brain tumors removed one in 2005 & one in 2006- with prayer and natural supplements (no kemo) she has outlived herself byabout 1-1/2 years. And is still going strong. Allow the miracle. It's a wonderful thing!
Chesapeake Beach, MD
I am going through chemotherapy for breast cancer for the second time (first time 12 years ago at 32) and I am a recovering alcoholic. I had a wonderful opportunity this past weekend to spend time with my brother, who I haven't seen in 3 years, at Canyon Ranch in the Berkshires. The first day there I walked into the gift shop and saw a huge display of your tee shirts and hats and I almost cried. They spoke to me and I bought "Cherish the Journey". I went on your website for the first time last night when I got home and then I've visited twice today. "The Universe Knows" is exactly what I have come to believe and rely upon throughout my 19 years of sobriety and my first journey through breast cancer. I am thrilled to have found you and felt so happy and peaceful wearing my tee shirt today. A bald head and a big message. Thank you.
New Albany, OH
I was the winner for a free t-shirt in March 2006. I actually received a shirt and LOVE it! The page still says for me to contact you so you can send me a shirt. If you want to send me another- who am I to complain! HAHA. I love your products and plan on buying many more from you as your inventory expands!
I love the saying "Welcome your Angels" I would love to see it on another shirt style- it's a shame it's only on the ribbed tank.
Thank you so much!
I have bought, worn and loved your t-shirts from my local retailer...
I must admit your shirts have become a kind of uniform for me, because they
make me feel so great!.
Although your site is great, you really need to see and
feel the quality to appreciate them fully. I fell in love when I touched them!
Leicester, United Kingdom
Thank you Universe Knows for the decal gift with my very first order! I've just begun a collection of your wonderful reminders. I'll be back soon.
Love your stuff. Thanks so much. I can't wait to rock my hoodie! ...
you guys are awesome. not only was i surprised to come across such wonderful clothing, but imagine my surprise upon finding such a well-thought out, inspired website! thank you for the great content (and the incredibly fast shipping!) I'll wear my hoodie with pride and will definitely spread the word!
Blessings and Abundance,
Los Angeles, CA
I love your shirts! I have gotten many for myself and given them as
memorable gifts. Would you consider doing a shirt (men's sizes) that says
'Trust Life' or 'Surrender to Life'?
New York, NY
I have wanted to write to you for several months. I am Jane - my sister, Cindy (Silver, Wood & Ivory) was selling music CD's and candles behind you at the NY International Gift Show the end of January.
I had just been diagnosed with breast cancer, several days before I met you, and you were so kind as to 'sell' me three t-shirts from your show. I don't know if you remember me, or not.
However, I wanted to let you know that I wear The Universe Knows t-shirts alot and people (especially my friends) appreciate that I want to wear such a positive message even though I am walking through Chemo treatments to beat the cancer.
I have only five treatments remaining; I am looking forward to getting my energy level back to normal and for my hair to grow back, which may take six+ months.
So, I justed wanted to thank you for the shirts. It has been fun to wear them and realize that through this cancer, I really believe in the messages and I can share those messages with others.
Blessings are everywhere
Live for today
Know in stillness
And there you have it.... (smile) my favorite pearl is "embrace the obstacles" because I am a profoundly deaf woman who faces challenges and obstacles daily in all parts of my life. Thank you for doing this good work!
I just wanted to say great stuff and you should think about adding tote bags to your products. great for eco-friendly grocery bags and all around necessary stuff.
I'm going thru breast cancer treatment right now and love the "cherish the journey" shirt... Love the sight...telling all my friends!
I purchased one of your shirts at the Miraval Resort a few weeks ago (your treasure's within). I love it and not only will i purchase more of these fabulous shirts in the very near future but your response, so perfect and so timely, was pretty deep! thank you
St. Louis, MO
hey guys, thanks so much for the great sweats, t-shirts and hat. what great clothing...what great quality. i tried to get you today...the day after thanksgiving to order some more gifts for the holidays...
it was great meeting you at the street fair last month...i hope you are having a happy, healthy and prosperous holiday season.
hi Ron - we met last Sat. at the festival, i was sooo excited about your clothing line and now equally excited about your website. congrats to you on your courage to be! i also think it's great that the day you began this is two days before my birthday!! i'm forwarding this site to everyone i know. keep up the great work and it was a pleasure to meet you both.
hi trish, hi ron! the black tee is attracting good vibes, compliments. my friend Lois loves her 'awaken your passion' which she'll wear in her drafting class to start a new vocation. Again, many thanks for your generosity, brilliance & wonderful tees. have fun in rockville centre next weekend & i'll catch up with you both soon!
"just a quick note to say i love the shirt! you guys are great at how fast it got here, only took 2 or 3 days. i'm impressed."
silver spring, md
"i really love the color, its cut and especially the soft feel of this shirt. i particularly like the saying awaken your passion it represents where i am in my life at this current time. its a great shirt!"
"what a wonderful and interesting site! i ordered the "rain or shine" shirt and absolutely loved it. i loved how the letters were embroidered, and the colorful logo on the back was great too!"
"i love my t-shirt. my pearl "awaken your passion" is my current motto and standpoint in life. i feel it's good to have that little reminder that we all need to tap into our passion and follow our hearts in order to live a fullfilling life."
"i loved that the pearl was embroidered in silver (which complemented the shirt color well) and especially that it was in lower case letters. the latter made the pearl seem unassuming, but yet it got the message across. the fact that just the logo appeared without any text was also a testament to that theme of not trying to beat people over the head with your message, but just putting it out there and letting things happen. thanks for the shirt and keep up the great work!!!"
"the embroidering is probably the best aspect. it's the one article of clothing in my closet that's interesting enough to want to share it with others."
east brunswick, nj
"a different inspirational approach. unique and a great reminder."
"the t-shirt is great… i hope that by wearing the shirt and pursuing my own passions, along with your help, we can all inspire people to "awaken their passions, and live their dreams."
I was successful in bidding on your products at the iSpa Foundation auction. I'm sending some of the items onto others - a colleague battling cancer going through chemo/radiation (trust the process); another colleague driving from Virginia to Vermont to be with her sister at Thanksgiving since the sister has cancer and is not expected to live many more days (cherish the journey); a friend going through a divorce (rewrite your script); the coffee mug and cap to the colleague whom I outbid to win; keeping the blue hoodie for myself; and the left overs to my staff. The pleasure is way more than doubled - thank YOU!
