L is for Lovelight (Cordello Quest A-Z Series) and …. Happy Birthday, Lazuli Portals!

Despite the importance of lovelight in The Lazuli Portals trilogy, I’ve found it difficult to write about it for this blog post series – I don’t want to give away too much to potential readers who haven’t read the books yet! (Spoilers are something I really do prefer to avoid!)

Hopefully we’ve still done it justice. 🙂

In Cordello, lovelight is a precious energy: a beautiful synergy of the life force energy which is available to us all, and love – the feeling or approach or state which is accepting, compassionate, grateful, open, allowing, and supportive. It is a conscious collaboration of the highest and purest kind. No wonder lovelight in Cordello feels so magical!

As with anything deemed valuable, there are often others who wish to find a way to acquire it and twist it for their own ends. This is one of the key conflicts in The Cordello Quest, and the outcome could change everything for the peaceful country of Cordello.

Soon after Keira arrives there, Lord Charls explains that his country is under threat, and that boosting lovelight yet further may be vital in saving it.

“Keira, the Cordellan strength is in working together and in working with our positive energies. In creating lovelight, in spreading it to raise the energy of all others.

If we can raise it high enough, with sufficient focus and intention, it is possible that we can forestall any attack, and find a peaceful resolution. That is why you have come.”

Before she knows it, Keira finds herself in the quest to save lovelight. In the process, she discovers more wonders than she could ever have dreamed of…

During her time in Cordello, Keira also learns about lovelight globes, although making them is a skill she will need to practice. These globes are based on an energy tool I use called the Orb of Life (I received my original Orb, with instructions, from my Reiki Master).


I’ve since ‘made’ well over a hundred of these little spherical stores of universal energy – most for past clients, friends, and family – and use mine daily. They practically wrote themselves into our series! You can read more about Orbs of Life in the Bonus Section of our website.

As with Orbs of Life, making the lovelight globes in Cordello is one thing, but using them is something else altogether. Aligning clear intentions and purity of spirit with lovelight or life-force energy can be a pretty potent combination, especially if it’s for the benefit of the wider world! In the case of Cordello, working in this way is a major part of what life is all about!

Oh, and before we forget, today marks our partnership’s sixth ‘birthday’ (Ron says it feels much longer than that lol). So happy birthday, Lazuli Portals, and may you go from strength to strength, bringing even more insight, lovelight, and reading pleasure to your readers with each year that passes.

Please help yourself to a little slice of calorie-free virtual birthday cake. 🙂

C is for Cordello

In this extract from The Cordello Quest, Keira relates her first sight of Cordello:

From our elevated position, I could see down and across the valley. In one glance I took in the expanse of lush, vivid green foliage, punctuated by huge bell–shaped flowers in carmine, orange, purple and white, and many shades in between. The enormous flowering shrubs, when seen close–to, reminded me of rhododendrons. Their brilliant colours were beautifully offset by the glossy mid– and deep–green leaves; all of the plants looked incredibly healthy and vigorous.

Here and there, nestling shyly between the vast forests of glossy foliage, I could see signs of habitation – snippets of a curving path or road, an occasional hamlet or village peeking from its cradle of greenery. One wider pathway led down from where I stood, snaking its way through the valley.

But Cordello’s magic is not simply in its lush foliage, its ancient woodland, or its hidden lakes and waterfalls. Cordello’s beauty is in its people, in their cooperation, in their shared focus on love and learning, and working with universal energy for the higher good.

Cordello is home to Lord Charls and his people – including Julianna and her young son, Tobin, and Roanne, who becomes so important to Keira.

And, of course, Cordello is home to lovelight, that precious energy which enables the Cordellans to live harmoniously in their beautiful country. (A future blog post, L is for Lovelight, will cover this in more detail.)

It’s been tricky writing a post about this wonderful place in a way which – we hope – won’t spoil the experience of discovery for those who have not yet read The Cordello Quest! We’ve given it our best shot . . . how did we do? 😉

Shall we write the next in the series?

P.S. Other Cs we could have chosen: Crystal, Cornwall, Cavern or Charls. But how could we not use Cordello! 😀
