Soul Whispers - Love

It is my belief that messages from the universe speak to me and reminds me of something that is inside of me. When I first see them, I often don't even know what is really being advertised. Instead, the message conjure emotions or thoughts relating to something that is going on within me; in my heart, in my mind, in my soul. I see them on billboards, in magazines, store windows, church plaques...everywhere.

I secretly call them soul whispers.

The messages are all around us


I've being seeing the word LOVE and hearts everywhere the past couple of days.

The tragedy of the recent violence in our world crushes me. 
I've avoided the news, purposely.

I'm a person who is deeply passionate and because of this I would take in the sadness like a sponge. The constant news coverage would honestly put me into a depression. That being said as I flipped channels last night, I paused at the start of the memorial service and was so touched by the few moments of the interfaith service that I did watch. People coming together, putting their differences aside, to mourn, to heal - I envisioned the reverberation of prayer echoing around the world.

I want to take this moment to encourage you to love, to listen, and to ask for help. 

It is my opinion that in today's world we are all very busy and we are tied to the electronic gadgets. 
So, I want to encourage you to put your phone down, to turn your tv off, and to listen with love. 

I encourage you to enjoy dinner with your friends and not text or check your email.
 I encourage you to have dinner as a family, together, without the tv being on. 

I encourage you to ask the person next to you how they are and I want you to be present, in the moment, and I want you to listen with love and intention.

I also encourage you to share openly, tenderly, honestly, and if you need to...I want you to ask for help. 

Know...that it is okay to ask for help. 
Know that you are safe and that you are with the people that love you.

To the town of Newtown, CT, which is less than a couple of hours away from me, my sincerest prayers and love to you.


  1. Kindred spirits are we, thanks for putting yourself out there for those of us who struggle with being heard and not herd.

  2. i hear your sadness Lori... so many heavy hearts these days.
    Your words (and photos) are always beautiful, as always.
    We all wish we could take their pain away.
    Take good care of yourself... and keep reminding us with your beautiful photos that love IS out there. xox

  3. Love you Lori! I'm the same way with this type of thing. I really have to be careful to limit my exposure to all of the news because I really do get affected by it. LOVE your post.

  4. Beautiful reminders Lori. As human sponge myself I too avoid the news. It's simply all too much and the media's focus seems to skew what is most important in these times. Love and peace to you my friend. xx
