Energy Art - Healing Orbs

This energy art image was inspired by a video that my brother sent to me awhile back that shows an undeniable orb in it.  He has a night vision camera out in his woods to catch cool videos of the deer, and he's got two different videos with orbs in them.

 In the one with the deer, notice how the deer actually seems to sense or even see the orb as it zooms by. It's fast (top center) so you have to look quickly.  Anyway, I think I'm going to do a series of energy art orb interpretations, the one above is my first.

Oh yeah,  Happy New Year!!  It's the big one, 2012!  What's going to happen this year, I wonder?  I don't know, hopefully nothing too catastrophic environmentally.   I feel that this could be a year for an expansion in consciousness for lots of people.  Embracing a more connected and spiritual attitude by releasing some  negative and self-centered  ways of thinking would be an awesome way to spend 2012!

I was watching tv yesterday, (on my new big screen tv that my awesome daughter Andi and her boyfriend Dustin bought us for Christmas...what the?!!! seriously?!!!!! Crazy girl!!)  Anyway, I can't remember what channel it was, but all day long the movie 2012 was playing, over and over again.  

I don't know if you've seen that movie, but it's like an epic fear mongering kind of movie. It's a cool movie, don't get me wrong, especially impressive on a big screen tv, but really?  Day one of 2012 the studio execs said "Oh let's start the year off with some hardcore brainwashing of DREAD". 

It's all possible I suppose, if you want to believe in the worst outcome possible.  It's a fact that the sun is in an active period of solar flares and unrest, peaking in 2013, and  the magnetic storms from these flares seem to trigger crazy weather and earthquakes.  It's also a fact, that on December 21, 2012,  the planets will be in a rare alignment that could  affect the the magnetism of the north and south poles, triggering a strong gravitational pull that could affect the continental plates. 

I'm not skeered!!!!   I do plan on having some supplies on hand, just in case.  So will everyone else, though, and with the widespread anticipation of this date, we could actually trigger our own disasters without anything even happening!!  It's a crazy time to be alive!!  Would you believe that December 21, 2012 is the 28th anniversary of when I was raped and attacked?  How weird is that.....

Anyway, blah blah blah......  I've been thinking really hard about  my artwork and how I want to spread some love, light, and healing energy into the world through the images.  I see myself as a Lightworker in this aspect, and I also see all the people who buy my artwork as Lightworkers.  As a matter of fact, I see everyone as Lightworkers.....we all play our part in spreading our intentions and energy into the world, good or bad.  Hopefully, we can reach the point where we focus on the good.  

I was reading about Lightworkers, and came across this website. I know I'm not really supposed to copy and paste a bunch of paragraphs from someone else's words, but this is just so right on, I had to do it....

Lightworkers are souls who carry the strong inner desire to spread Light – knowledge, freedom and self-love – on earth. They sense this as their mission. They are often attracted to spirituality and to therapeutic work of some kind.

Psychological characteristics of lightworkers:

From early on in their life, they feel they are different. More often than not they feel isolated from others, lonely and misunderstood. They will often become individualists who will have to find their own unique ways in life.
They have trouble feeling at home within traditional jobs and/or organization structures. Lightworkers are naturally anti-authoritarian which means that they naturally resist decisions or values based solely on power or hierarchy. This anti-authoritarian trait is present even if they seem timid and shy. It is connected to the very essence of their mission here on earth.
Lightworkers feel drawn to helping people as a therapist or as a teacher. They may be psychologists, healers, teachers, nurses, etc. Even if their profession is not about helping people in a direct manner, the intent to contribute to the higher good of humanity is clearly present.
Their vision of life is colored by a spiritual sense of how all things are related together. They consciously or subconsciously carry memories within them of non-earthly spheres of light. They may occasionally feel homesick for these spheres and feel like a stranger on earth.
They deeply honor and respect life which often manifests as a fondness for animals and a concern for the environment. The destruction of parts of the animal and vegetable kingdoms on earth by human doing invokes deep feelings of loss and grief in them.
They are kind-hearted, sensitive and empathic. They may have trouble dealing with aggressive behavior and they generally experience difficulties in standing up for themselves. They can be dreamy, naive or highly idealistic, as well as insufficiently grounded, i.e. down-to-earth. Because they easily pick up negative feelings and moods of people around them, it is important for them to spend time alone on a regular basis. This enables them to distinguish between their own feelings and those of others. They need solitary time to touch base with themselves and with mother earth.
They have lived many lives on earth in which they were deeply involved with spirituality and/or religion. They were present in overwhelming numbers in the old religious orders of your past as monks, nuns, hermits, psychics, witches, shamans, priests, priestesses, etc. They were the ones providing a bridge between the visible and the invisible, between the daily context of earth life and the mysterious realms of the afterlife, realms of God and the spirits of good and evil. For fulfilling this role, they were often rejected and persecuted. Many of you were sentenced to the stake for the gifts you possessed. The traumas of persecution left deep traces within your soul’s memory. This may presently manifest as a fear of being fully grounded, i.e. a fear to be really present, because you remember being brutally attacked for who you were.

This is me!!! And it's quite possibly many or even most of the people I've come to know in the past year through this blog, facebook and Etsy!  How cool is that?!!! I have big plans, big plans for my energy art this year.  Andi also got me one of those tablet things with a pen so I can actually draw within my images without using the clumsy old mouse.

I swear, when I opened that package on Christmas and saw what it was, I got the strongest surge of goosebumps ever!  I couldn't even talk for about 10 minutes because of the lump in my throat (don't look at me, I'm going to cry!).   I got a brief little vision of what I would accomplish this year, and the gratitude and excitement was overwhelming.  I'm going to make a difference!  This is what I'm supposed to be doing!  And with this pen, I can get detailed so that huge images on say, canvas, will look awesome. I can also embed the reiki symbol choku-rei into my artwork to amp up the energy.  I can hide words that give off good vibes in the designs. Endless possibilities for Lightwork.  Thank you, Andi.  I sure do love you!!!

Well I hope everyone has the best year ever!

With Love and Light,



  1. Wow- cool print, and the videos are... freaky xD Haha, you wouldn't catch me outside with night vision!!! xD

    Ohmygosh! What great Christmas presents!! A tv and a computer tablet!? (I still need one of those, btw ;) Now imagine all the things you can do! Can’t wait to see what you come up with! ♥

    Haha, I’ve heard of that movie... I still wanna see if. I've heard it’s filled with dramatic JUST-escapes! ;)

    Nice to see a post from you again! ♥

  2. Okay, those orb videos? Seriously neat. Do you think they're just random energy, or ghosts, or what?

    I haven't seen the movie 2012, but my friend has...she said it scared her and her friends at first, but then they realized how many near-misses there were (the helicopter takes off JUST as the ground collapses under it or something, you know?) that they began laughing at it!! I've been trying to keep that kind of mindset about the whole 2012 prediction. Because seriously, I don't think the world's going to end. Everyone's getting all worked up about it, but recently there have been a whole bunch of "the world is going to end!" prophecies, and none of them have come true. It just seems a little silly to think that the world's just going to up and end, in my opinion. However, that is kind of neat about all the solar flares and planet-alignments. :) Yikes about the 28th anniversary, though!

    Love the Lightworkers info, too. Some of it seemed to apply to me, haha, though not all of it. :)

    I can't wait to see what new art you come up with this year!! That orb one is pretty cool, by the way. :)

    Happy New Year, Laurie!! Hugs!

  3. Ah, my fave girls!! Aren't those orbs wild? My brother says that he's heard there's an Indian burial ground on his property, maybe those orbs are spirits. He's got shoeboxes full of arrowheads. I don't know, but I like to think that they're intelligent and benevolent, and full of healing light and energy. The orb in the deer video seemed to know exactly where it was going, on a mission! The other one seemed like it was just nonchalantly skipping along. Maybe that one got into some fermented grapes or something, haha. One of them was taken on the winter equinox, which is a coinkydink.

    That movie is worth watching just because of the special effects, but I agree, everything about it was close calls from beginning to end. Hollywood drama!! I don't think the world will end. I wouldn't be surprised if there were an increase in natural disasters, though, and it brings people into more of a "we are all connected" attitude. Some people believe that aliens will show themselves, who knows what will happen! It might be a challenge to overcome the collective consciousness of panic as that day approaches though. Maybe that's what Lightworkers are for!

  4. OMG! The videos are incredible - save them, share them...I've done and see a lot of footage on orbs - I've never seen anything like this!

    And your "Healing Orbs" piece is awesome! are you thinking of jewelry for this one too? I love all you do Laurie - :) hugs and happy 2012

  5. Hmmm, where to begin? Those videos are pretty awesome. I've only seen orbs in photos before and you can come up with one hundred and one reasons to explain them away! The video is pretty compelling however!

    Yeah... the end of the world and all that crazy jazz. People forget that the world could end every single day if it so desired. A good enough reason to enjoy each moment fully is what I say. I wonder what the significance of your attack and the potential end of the world holds? I'm not at all surprised that the two dates coincide though. I guess time will tell. :)

    That lightworker info is fantastic! I got chills reading it. Except for the 'trouble standing up for themselves' part, it's pretty dead on. I've never had any difficulty in that area, in fact I had to learn how to tone it down! ;)

    As usual, always fun and informative to read your posts Laurie. Love your work at the top, it's pretty amazing. Can't wait to see what fabulous things you create with that tablet!! :)

  6. I know it, Beth! I've seen some other footage of orbs on the internet, but these are very real with no other explanations. They're totally cool! And the deer, she felt it or maybe even saw it whiz by. Of course, animals are more in tune than humans, so they probably see lots of things we miss. I'm still trying to decipher what they are exactly. I wish I could see one in person, that would be so cool!

    I'm going to make "Healing Orbs" into a necklace. I just recently discovered bezel cups and magnifying glass domes for the necklaces. I've made a few, but am still tweaking the process. Anyway, the metallic prints looks so awesome and flashy behind these glass domes! I'll get them up on Etsy sometime this month, assuming I can figure out how to do everything right (finding the right adhesive....) You're a good one to ask, would you like a necklace that's made completely of copper or sterling silver, as opposed to cheaper alternatives? The price would have to be higher, but the properties of copper are especially good for amplifying energy. Maybe I'll do some of both...

  7. Hey Melinda, it's so good that you're back! I think the bloggy world has missed your insights and positive attitude!

    I'm like you, I've seen orbs in photos, but none where they're moving, and the deer can obviously feel it or even see it. Sure makes me wonder what they are! There's a lot of things in this world that we don't have a grasp of, it's very exciting!

    I've wondered about the anniversary of my rape and attack being on the end of the world date. It's unusual and odd to say the least. I'm sure it has significance, maybe even more significance than the symbolism of "ending". Something I'll be pondering all year, I'm sure! If nothing else, I'll be working hard to release all the trauma of that event, ending it once and for all.

    I love goosebumps moments, I've had so many since I've started making energy art and connecting with like-minded souls. I'm not a bit surprised that you resonate with that information. I'm better at standing up for myself than I used to be as a young girl, although I still have a gentleness and shyness that prevents me from getting too fiery about my beliefs. I admire those people, but I'm not one of them! Injustice can get me fired up, but it melts away almost as fast as it explodes.

  8. Jordan, I hope you read this! I don't know if anyone else if having problems reading your blog, but for me, the background keeps bouncing up and down and it won't let me scroll down. Any clues?

  9. Haha, my favorite is that "nonchalantly skipping along" orb...the one that got into the fermented grapes. xD That's really neat about the Indian burial ground, I bet they are spirits/ghosts!! I've always loved ghost stories...ironically, in my house I'm one of the only ones who DOESN'T see ghosts regularly!! Go figure. ;)

    I may have to check out the movie, see what I think. :) Whatever happens (or doesn't) this year, though, one thing is for sure - there are going to be a lot of people holding their breath December 21st, 2012!!

  10. Greetings from Southern California

  12. Hey Laurie!! :)

    Sorry 'bout my Blog... :P I don't know what to tell you... But I'm getting a Blog makeover soon- so maybe that'll fix it!! ♥ Check back in and maybe it'll load. Perhaps it was just a funk day :P


  13. funny, I tick all the boxes as well! I went to a Doreen Virtue workshop a few years back and took a few pics at the end of the audience and stage. There was no flash allowed on cameras but 2 of my images are chock a block full of orbs floating above the heads of the crowd which could not have been created by lightning in the hall(there was non turned on at the time). Very cool! x Julie
