Shared Messages from the Universe

I'm Dreaming of...

At first, I'll admit,  I didn't notice the phrase...I noticed the paper flowers. I was fascinated. I still am, trust me, I will walk past the windows a few more times to admire them.

Now the message...

It is my belief that messages from the universe speak to me about something that is inside of me. When I first see them, I often don't even know what is really being advertised. Instead, they conjur emotions or thoughts relating to something that is going on within me; in my heart, in my mind, in my soul. 

I'm dreaming of...

Have you made a list? 
Do you cut pictures out of magazines and create dream boards?
Do you dream?
Do you share your dreams?

Please, please, please - dream. Dream big! 

Remember, when you were young and you did not censor yourself? Remember? 
Come on think back...I know you can do it.

If you could do one thing. Just one thing, you know the one that when you do it, you get lost. You lose track of time. 

Your smiling right now, aren't you? 

Yes, the one thing that when you finish - you are exhausted. The one thing that makes you feel content. The one thing that when you wake up - you want to do it again.

I have always loved the color red (stay with me) for as long as I can remember. I cannot tell you why or how but I know that it is my favorite color. 

In this same way, I know that I am an artist. And, I have big dreams of how I want my life to be. My current journey is made up of a lot of smaller dreams. Each is an adventure. Each is a step towards my big dream.

Now, what is your favorite color?

Now, if you could do and/or be anything - what is your dream?

Come on dream, dream big - no censor, no doubts, no how, and no why?



Write it down.

Post it where you will see it every day. 


Write down ten more dreams. Yes, I said ten (10).  Big, small, tiny, medium...dreams.

I am dreaming of...

B I G:
A creative life filled with photography, jewelry making, sculpture, paint, words, hosting retreats, and friends.

  1. Completing 6 more wire flower necklaces.
  2. Blogging consistently 4 days a week (Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, Friday) and maybe in between.
  3. A torch...
  4. An etsy store with art prints of my photography.
  5. An etsy store of my jewelry.
  6. Time (no longer having a day job).
  7. Studio space.
  8. Attending an artist/creative retreat.
  9. Traveling.
  10. A new computer (since I currently do all my work from my iPad and this has so many limits).
Some of these cannot be achieved immediately. Some won't happen for years. And, you know what I am ok with that. I need to dream. I need to see my dreams. I need to write them down. 

Now, it's your turn.

What are your D R E A M S?

Have you noticed any Shared Messages from the Universe?

Share your message by joining my flickr group by the same name: Shared Messages from the Universe and post or link your photos.  Share those written messages that you walk by most of the time.  Those messages that all of a sudden you notice, you read, you react and they move you forward.

I'd love see the messages that have inspired you!


  1. Really great post Lori! I want to get going on my list ... I am going to make a list today. Scratch it out on my notebook on my desk or put on some posties. THANKS for the inspiration!

    My favorite color is green!

    Great idea on the flickr group as well. I used to take photos of words that caught my eye. I'll have to get started doing that again.

    Thanks for the shot in the arm this cold Monday morning:)

  2. I knew we had a connection! I'm a red girl, too! I have a list of my dreams on my blog (actually realized a few this year!) but there are some biggies!

  3. I cracked up when I walked by Sephora and saw your sign! Then I saw you wrapped dark chocolates at Trader Joe's! We travel in the same circles!

  4. i so love this... i'll get back to you tomorrow re: my BIG dreams. :-) So happy to hear you say you're an artist. Damn right you are, girl!! xoxo

  5. We really do have to meet one day! Make sure you tell me if you are going to a creative retreat and maybe I will come along.
    Dreams...working on them now. I love the new year because it always stops me in my tracks and makes me think.
