Meet Lori Morrison. Lori is an Author, an Intuitive and a Healer. Known in Sedona and beyond for her spiritual work.
Q: Tell us a little bit about yourself.
A: I have spent most of my life in Central America. I lived in El Salvador for 28 years, but I started out in Phoenix. I met my husband, who was living there and was on the Board of Directors of Del Webb Corporation. After he died, I decided to come back here to Arizona. I’ve always loved the Phoenix area. I lived in Paradise Valley when I met my husband, and after living in El Salvador, I wanted to come back to Arizona. I’ve been in all different areas of business. I’m an entrepreneur. I have worked on Wall Street as a banker and worked with one of Central America’s foremost developers. I was on the Board of Directors of Visionmakers, which is the company that designed the Four Seasons in Costa Rica. I worked with them on my own project with the land that I owned. I was also in the food business – I had a gourmet store and restaurants all over Central America. I partnered with Robert Mondavi and Jarvis Winery in Napa Valley and represented all the top California and Australian wineries. It was such a fun and entertaining business.
Q: Tell us a little bit about what do you do right now.
A: I lived nearby a peninsula on a lake, and on the night of my 52nd birthday, I was hit by lighting and was unconscious for three hours. When I woke up, I could only see the world through a lens of sacred geometry. I had the knowledge of the plant world. I could see plants and know what their medicinal qualities were. I could speak Mayan, an ancient language. I didn’t know what happen to me. If I looked at a flower, I could only see the particles. I couldn’t see the whole flower. I could see people’s bodies and could sense illness. This was very confusing because I didn’t know what this was all about. I ended up in a mental hospital while doctors tried to understand what I was experiencing. I wrote a memoir called “The Disintegration of My Ordinary Reality.” It was a very successful book because many people have experienced this phenomenon. I came to Sedona to work with the Mental Health Coalition because I wanted to bring awareness to people who also had this extraordinary experience and may have been misdiagnosed. My story was part of a documentary filmed in England and shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theater. I currently work with people who have no idea what’s wrong with their health and go beyond what a routine doctor’s appointment will give you.
Q: Is there one thing that you wished you learned earlier in life?
A: That nothing really matters. For me, it’s all a process. It’s all part of a greater plan.
Q: How long have you lived or worked in Sedona?
A: I’ve been here for six years.
Q: What is something that you love about living in Sedona?
A: The longer that I am here, the more I sense the multidimensional world that exists. Because I am so sensitive and so intuitive, I feel Sedona’s sacredness. I believe that it’s not a place that you just move to but, it’s a place that you come with reverence for the land or have reverence for the ancestral spirits who lived here.
Before I built my house in Mystic Hills, I needed to have a relationship with the land built upon a relationship with the ancestral spirits. I am doing a lot of work on understanding the connection Sedona has with Lemuria.
Q: What is one piece of advice that changed your life?
A: I think the best advice came from my mentor, she taught me about the word “Compassion.” What that means is to have compassion for myself and compassion for others.
Q: Who is the most exciting person you’ve met here in Sedona? And why?
A: I would say Jaap Van Etten. He knows a lot about Lemuria, he was a scientist. I think he’s probably the most knowledgeable person about Vortexes in Sedona.
Q: When someone says that they cannot feel the vortexes, what do you say?
A: I feel them in different places. So I don’t align with the tourist map. I think there are many factors involved, such as where you are at the moment and the level of awareness and intuition you feel. A lot of people don’t listen to their intuition. Anywhere we go on the earth, an external magnetic field affects us – it affects some people more than others.
Q: What age would you like to be again? And why?
A: I think I’m okay where I’m at right now.
Q: How would your closest friends describe you?
A: Creative, a giver, and I listen and give good advice.
Q: What would you consider your greatest accomplishment?
A: Being able to master me on all levels. I manage my emotions, my physical body, and what it needs, such as healthy foods. Learning to listen to my thoughts and intuition and rely on my feelings more than using my brain to work things out. Learning to trust. I would say that my greatest accomplishment is mastering being a human.
Q: Choosing anyone with whom would you love to have lunch?
A: Robin Williams. First of all, it would be hysterical, I love to laugh. But I would like to know what happened and why he committed suicide, to help others understand what someone goes through.
Q: What is meaningful to you?
A: Everything shifted when I realized that there’s an infinite field of possibility, if I try to predict anything, it’s going to be a big waste of time.
Q: How would you like to be remembered?
A: That I made a difference in shifting the level of consciousness in others and helped them to understand that there is an unlimited field of possibility.
Q: Is there something I haven’t ask that you want others to know about you?
A: I love chocolates!
