Meet your Essence Maker ...
Self-employed since the age of 21, Lori D'Ascenzo has been a lifelong pioneer and trendsetter. For 17 years she was an artist and internationally recognized floral designer. She loves the beauty, colour, scent, and everything about flowers and nature
Lori believes her award-winning talent as a floral designer came in part from her innate ability to sense or feel the 'soul' or energy of the flowers and to present them in a way that expressed their individual qualities. She is also able to sense spirit and found unique ways to get spirit's message to loved ones expressed through the medium of her funeral flower arrangements
Lori grew up on a farm and was a horse whisperer even as a child. She owned and worked with horses for more than 30 years. Her relationships with many of her animals was enduring. Her pets thrive on natural food and therapies and live well beyond the average lifespan
As an empath, Lori has repeatedly demonstrated an uncanny ability to sense what is really wrong with an animal. She has a natural ability to empathize with a horse and understand how they feel. Her sister, now retired, was also a horse breeder and professional trainer, which afforded Lori the opportunity to work with many horses, collect case studies, hone her skills, and prove the efficacy and consistant reliability of her therapies and living flower essences
In the early 1990's, Lori's pioneering approach and passion gradually turned toward natural health. Lori became a health research writer and for 2 decades wrote and published Niagara Region's first health magazines and directories. She also produced the first health expos in Niagara Region. Her broad and eclectic interests were a decided asset as a writer. Her penetrating insights into the underlying forces of life and her uncanny ability to find relevant links between seemingly unrelated topics has helped Lori to uncover startling new truths in health and medicine
Lori has interviewed, studied, written about, and learned from some of the world's most respected scientists, researchers, and natural health experts encompassing a broad spectrum of science fields. For more than 2 decades, this has kept her on the forefront of emerging research in quantum medicine. By focusing on a multitude of disciplines rather than specializing, Lori has gained a more comprehensive perspective. She likens specialized fields of medicine to 'looking at an elephant through a peephole. You can only ever see one small part, and so can never truly understand what you are seeing.'
Much of Lori's focus has been on the research of respected scientists such as Bruce Lipton, David Suzuki and William Tiller. Lori was one of the very first in North America to become certified in SCENAR Therapy, a revolutionary approach to frequency healing that was initially developed by Russian scientists for space missions
She has studied psychology since the age of 15, is a certified Reiki practitioner, a Master Medical Vibro-Accoustic Healing practitioner and instructor, and an esoteric astrologer (specializing in the science of the evolution of the soul). The latter has allowed Lori to add further dimension to her understanding of people at the emotional and soul level
Lori D'Ascenzo's professional services have developed into a subtle and unique blend of Energy Psychology, botanical frequency healing, sound vibrational frequency healing, Kinesiology, Reiki, compassionate clairsentience, and inspired coaching and mentoring. She has written several success guides for holistic professionals, has organized and hosted many large health expos, and has taught advanced Vibro-Accoustic Healing and Flower Essence Practitioner training programs for more than a decade
Lori has helped thousands of people at the deepest, most basic core where health and wellbeing begins--at the energetic and emotional level. Lori now plans to direct her teaching/mentoring talents to training practitioners all over the world in psycho-neuro harmonization through neural transmitter modulation using Enlightened Feelings botanical bio-frequencies
How March 3, 2002, changed Lori's life forever ...
....On that date, at 4PM, travelling at 60 mph on a highway in her convertible, Lori hit a caravan of stopped transport trucks
How she survived the catastrophic crash is a miracle. That Lori walked away from the accident defies explanation. But, the true impact of that day was how it became a powerful catalyst that closed a chapter in her life and irrevocably changed Lori forever ...
In one cataclysmic moment, she lost all emotional attachment to memories and experiences, attitudes and beliefs that, until that point, had created and directed her life. Areas of her emotions she had been blocking were instantly cleared. She could feel again with great depth and childlike innocence
What Lori soon began to understand was that the accident had released her from the past and she was now free to choose whatever life she wanted. Former idealistic ambitions and urgent missions were gone. She was free of all desires but one ... to love and be loved
As she relinquished control and allowed the universe to unfold her new destiny, for the first time in her life, Lori experienced true happiness and freedom! Her life became filled with magic, moments of pure wonder and serendipity. She even became 'magically' re-united with the love of her life after 25 years apart!
Lori now fully understands that happiness is not something we need to seek or strive toward. Happiness is our natural state. Throughout our lives we've been conditioned to be unhappy!
That fateful car accident was the catalyst for Lori to strip her life down to the core level, to lose emotional baggage and conditioning from her past so she could rediscover her truest self. She began to understand that her destiny was to help others 'unlearn' their lives to achieve the same freedom, happiness and authenticity with which she had been gifted
What's in a name? It is said that your name reveals your true destiny or what you have come to share. The name D'Ascenzo means "of the Ascension". Ascension is a term used for Self-Realization--the knowing or becoming of your Divine self
Lori is still in awe at the amazing full circle that has come about as she again accesses her lifelong relationship with flowers to create the world's most revolutionary living botanical essences. She is now incorporating a whole lifetime of learning and experience from very diverse fields and synthesizing it all into one profound healing modality ... frequency healing with flowers
Lori believes that most everyone who becomes a natural healer has undergone an arduous journey of personal sadness, pain and ultimate triumph. It is through our own painful experiences that we develop compassion, understanding, skills and wisdom
That is the gift that Lori now brings to Enlightened Feelings. Throughout her life Lori has faced many traumatic and challenging family and personal experiences. Most of her life was spent in struggle, pushing against life like it was some kind of adversary to be tackled. She endured nearly a lifetime of feeling unlovable, believing she had to be perfect to earn respect and love from others
Using the tools she now shares with you, Lori has risen above these painful experiences again and again to find happiness, love and inner peace. She has discovered by deep and profound experience that love and joy truly are our natural state and everything else we have learned
Lori continually demonstrates through her own daily life that your life can be beautiful if you will only choose to release your past and become free of all that is holding you down. She is here to help you do just that
Distilled from 2 decades of diverse training, research, experimentation, case studies, refinement, and experience, her unique approach to wellbeing is subtle, but it gets optimal results quickly without pain, struggle or frustration.
