• Curve balls, surprise snakes, and enormous power to HELP us to shed illusions

    You might have heard me give out a little scream a few minutes ago.

    Did you hear me? It was a total shriek of surprise and fear as I was neatening up my “Nearly Secret Garden” out front while on the phone with a treasured Reputation client. I don’t do much of that anymore, except in very special circumstances, for very special people. Basically, unless the Universe is telling me it’s a go, I refuse to engage in Online Reputation Management matters.

    It’s got to be Divine guidance or I’m staying out of it.

    So that’s where our slithering friend comes into play.

    I was on the phone with Ralph. We’ll call him Ralph. He’s created a LOAD of money on green energy. That’s all I’ll say. And there are powerful individuals who would prefer to take that company worth millions and millions of dollars for themselves by breaking it apart into little pieces. Have you ever seen Pretty Woman? Remember the guys in suits who so cheerfully bought vulnerable companies and sold them off for parts? Well… this isn’t exactly the same, but it rhymes.

    As I chatted with Ralph while gardening, (We always talk while cleaning, clearing, fixing things, instead of in front of a computer,) I’m inwardly asking for Divine guidance in this matter. What’s in Ralph’s (and my) highest good here?What’s true here? Is it demonstrably, unquestionably TRUE? What’s really going on with these involved parties?

    And out popped a baby snake hiding under a rock right by my front door.

    He flicked his little tongue out toward me. And I might have screamed.

    As Snake sheds its skin so we can shed our illusions and limitations.

    Talk about a sign!

    I’ll be continuing to seek wisdom and to proceed with caution, but one thing’s for sure: there’s a lot more going on than meets the eye.

    During this 2 week Eclipse window

    When we understand and accept that there will be curve balls, surprise snakes, friends passing away (yes, a friend passed away this morning,) there’s an enormous amount of power at hand to HELP us to shed old, worn out patterns and to fully embrace new, healthy, happy, sexy patterns on June 10th, the Solar Eclipse.

    More on that next week before I leave for lovely, mysterious, fabulous Santa Fe for a week to paint the energies of the Eclipse. And meet up with wonderful friends. And eat good food. And sample margaritas. But I digress. 🙂

    Meanwhile, how are you doing? Are you drinking enough water and getting enough sleep every night? Do you know how much the people in your life really do love you?

    Please let me know how you’re doing and remember that separation is an illusion, plain and simple.

    And wear gardening gloves… 🙂

    XO, Lori

    P.S. For you snake lovers, this was a Midland Brown Snake, a tiny little fellow who enjoys eating slugs, worms, and taking long walks on the beach. Um, maybe not that last little part. Interestingly, it’s also called the “DeKay” snake. Decay? Wow!

  • Announcing The Art of Astrology

    Abstract Art of Astrology for Teresa
    For Teresa

    You could have knocked me over with a feather the day I started doing this… It was so instinctive!

    Hi Lori, I received my Astro-painting and it’s spectacular. My husband said about it: “Wow, that’s gorgeous!” He’s dabbled in painting but his passion is photography.

    Lori, do you have a website? Have you been painting for a long time? I’m in love with what you were working on today.

    I look forward to buying another one of your art pieces in the future. As I mentioned before, but I must highlight it again: you are wildly talented.

    The Divine Flow is so evident and abundant in your creative expression.

    Thanks again for creating on my behalf!


    If you’d told me I’d be channeling the power of a moment via Abstract Art meets Intuition meets Astrology… 

    I don’t know what I would have done. Do you ever follow your passions hard and then look up and realize where they’ve taken you? And that it’s a wonderful place? That’s my life for sure.

    On 2020’s Winter Solstice, Jupiter and Saturn met for a lingering kiss on the most sensitive part of my chart.

    I knew I needed to learn a new skill this year, to make the most of this incredibly powerful moment. Plus, I was scared sh*tless by the intensity of the days leading up to it. It’s like one of those times in life where life taps you on the shoulder and offers you a cosmic invitation.

    “To each there comes in their lifetime a special moment when they are figuratively tapped on the shoulder and offered the chance to do a very special thing, unique to them and fitted to their talents. What a tragedy if that moment finds them unprepared or unqualified for that which could have been their finest hour.”

    Sir Winston Churchill

    This feels like Destiny right now.

    I love giving Astrological readings and I love process painting pivotal moments – those cosmic beginnings like birth, a budding romance, starting a new career path, starting a new business in these wildly evolutionary times!

    Am offering a select group of cosmic moments in time, mainly those potent energies of astrological transits of the past or to those come, such as the Solar Eclipse coming this Summer. I’m traveling for the express purpose of painting the energies of it from The City Different. Please click here to see what I’m sharing. So many paintings have been for people going through a healing time who want something powerful that reminds them of all the strengths and beauty they’re rocking. If you’re interested collecting these, please check out my Portfolio Page. 

    If you’re interested in commissioning one of these one-of-a-kind works, please contact me.
