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. 🙂

J is for Jason: Character Interview (The Cordello Quest A-Z Series)

Now that I’m actively working on the third novel in the Lazuli Portals series (whoop whoop!), it seemed perfect timing to share with you some insights about Jason, Keira’s boyfriend, whom we first met on a dark moorland night in the opening scene of The Cordello Quest.

We thought the most enjoyable way to do this would be for Jason to be interviewed …

We’ll try not to include spoilers (especially for those of you who have yet to begin your Lazuli Portals journey, with The Cordello Quest), but it’s soooo hard!

Cordello Quest

Hi Jason, thanks for dropping by to chat with us today. So let’s get started. What do you love most about Keira?

Hi, it’s good to be here. My favourite thing about Keira …. her curiosity of mind and spirit, I think. Yeah, I think she’s beautiful and sexy, too – and she doesn’t even know it! But she’s always had this drive to better herself: not just educationally but with how she behaves, and even how she thinks. I never know what she’ll come out with next, and sometimes that’s a bit odd, but it does keep life interesting! I reckoned that was why she was chosen for the Cordello quest. She has a really big heart, too, really cares deeply about people and situations.

What have you found most challenging about your spiritual journey so far?

The uncertainty, I guess. Having to trust where you’re putting your feet, as it were, when you can’t really see the path or what’s ahead. I’m not sure I trust myself that much, so I find it difficult ‘going with the flow’, as Keira calls it, rather than planning something using logic and intellect. I can do practical, no problem – but the universal energy stuff we’ve been experiencing is much more intuitive, less easy for me to get my head around. Perhaps that’s the point: it’s the heart and soul leading the way, not the head ….

Jason, you were born in Cornwall; what do you love most about the county?

Where the hell do I start with that question?! I love its contrasts: beautiful wooded valleys and creeks in the south, and the wild ruggedness of the north where the cliffs and beaches are open to the Atlantic. But to me Cornwall is unique, it has a spirit and romance that isn’t echoed anywhere else, to my mind. I’ve lived here all my life and still haven’t explored it all.

How did you feel when you first realised Keira had gone missing, and you stumbled across her in the stone circle?

Bloody scared! Sorry … it was a real shock, though, I thought she’d hit her head or something, and had … it was an awful moment, a really sobering one. After that, though, the surprises never really stopped coming!

What are your favourite foods and drinks?

Well, I used to drink a bit too much of the alcoholic variety, to be honest. I’ve got more self-control now, and try to keep in mind that drinking too much left me a waste of space when Keira needed me. I know Keira worried about how much I drank, too, and that gave me the willpower to cut down. I still enjoy a beer or two, but it’s not a habit anymore. My favourite drink is actually tea!

As for food, I have quite a sweet tooth, so really anything from Keira’s cake tin would be my favourite, especially if it involves chocolate! Flapjacks always go down well, too … you didn’t happen to bring any with you, I suppose …?

Haha! Sorry, not this time. Okay, we’re nearing the end now. Are there any other places you’d like to spend more time in?

Yeah. Cornwall’s great, but I like Scotland and Wales, too. The Celtic link, I suppose. And Brittany, in France, perhaps for the same reason. I’d hoped we could spend some time there once the mosaic of light adventure was over, but it didn’t pan out. I really want to see Cordello, as well, as it sounds amazing. But then there’s New Zealand – I loved the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit movies – and so many other places. I need a TARDIS, really …

That would be handy on so many levels, wouldn’t it? Last question, Jason. Cats or dogs? Car or motorbike? Paperback or ebook?

That’s three questions!

Okay, well I like dogs a lot, and had a collie when I was growing up. But there’s something extra-special about cats, so that’s my preference if you’re making me choose.

The car is handy for going out with Keira, or transporting stuff, but my heart says motorbike and an empty road! No way would Keira let me out on that, though!

The book question is more complicated: I have paperbacks of novels that I really like, and would never give them away. But ebooks are definitely easier to buy and read, especially if you’re accessing them on several devices. Makes life easier going on holiday, too, as I can take ten on my ereader as easily as one. At the end of the day, though, it’s the story that counts, for me.

Thanks so much for allowing us to interview you, Jason! We’ll let you get back now. Oh, Keira’s just texted to say she’s taking a fruit cake out of the oven. So we’ll – oh, he’s gone! *waves*

An Interview with an Ascended Reikan

We started our Cordello Quest A-Z blog series back in 2013 with an introduction to Ascended Reikans. Later, as part of a promotional guest post, we ‘interviewed’ one of our favourite characters from The Cordello Quest: the wonderful Ascended Reikan, Lady Aida.

We thought it’d be fun to share her interview again, right here on our own Lazuli Portals blog, so that our newer readers have the opportunity to see it.

So here we go! 🙂

An Interview with Lady Aida

Joanna: Hello, Lady Aida, thank you for agreeing to answer a few questions.

Lady Aida: I’m pleased to be here, Joanna and Ron. Thank you for having me.

Joanna: First of all, what’s it like being an Ascended Reikan?

Lady Aida: It’s extremely rewarding. My assignment has been interesting, to say the least. Being able to offer guidance to awakening humans is a joy.

Ron: Lady Aida, when you were writing in your journal – the one used by Keira when she was in Cordello – did you have any idea that it would become so important?

Lady Aida: No, not at all. Writing the journal was simply my way of making sense of my learning, and tracking my own development in the use of crystals, lovelight and intuition. I was heartened to see that Keira gained so much from my own experiences.

Joanna: When you were working with crystals, did you ever have a favourite?

Lady Aida: I would not have been able to choose, my dear. Their frequencies are different, and each has its own value. It would be like asking me to choose a favourite niece or nephew. I do have a fondness for the quartz crystals, however, and appreciated the warm tones and shades of the Tiger’s Eye.

Ron: Of all the places you’ve seen, do you have a favourite?

Lady Aida: Cordello, without a doubt. True, I have travelled to many worlds, seen many wonderful things. And I was very fond of Reika, of course. But . . . Cordello is home, and I am always glad to return to its green valleys and to my own people.

Joanna: What is your favourite colour?

Lady Aida: I have no favourite, dear. All colour is light, and to choose from among the light is not possible.

Ron: If you could be any animal, what would you choose?

Lady Aida: I believe I would choose to be an eagle. Soaring high, with wide perspectives and clear sight. I am fond of flying, as you know.

Joanna: A final question for you, Lady Aida. Do you have a favourite word?

Lady Aida: Oh yes, dear. It is Love.

Joanna: I should have known you’d say that! Thank for your time, Lady Aida.

Lady Aida: It’s been a pleasure. Goodbye.
