The Joy of I.T. is an inspiring collection of poetry that guide readers toward self-reflection and well-being. Why was this an important book for you to write and publish?
Thank you for taking the time to read this anthology of creativity and artistic expression. The Joy of I.T. (Infinite Transcendence) is my first non-fiction publication to date. Over the past 18 months, I have released a metaphysical thriller and a visionary paranormal fantasy that have underlying themes of self-actualization and transformation, using the magical alchemy of forgiveness. I am incredibly grateful that Heart of a Warrior Angel and The De-Coding of Jo have received multiple awards for literary excellence in storytelling.
During the height of the global pandemic lockdown, I began to reflect on some of the lessons thrust by this enigmatic virus in what seemed like the darkest days in humanity’s existence. We were given an opportunity to slow down our chaotic lifestyles and social conditioning of striving to reach unrealistic expectations based on external stimuli. From my perspective, this experience has motivated the human race to re-examine our priorities and awaken to our inherent truths. As such, I was inspired to create an uplifting book that focused on positive messages of encouragement, female empowerment, worthiness, and self-love.
My intention behind this book was to offer insightful viewpoints and artistic ingenuity, to elevate the expansion of unity consciousness and celebrate the beauty of Mother Earth. I was motivated to create a mystical, ornate full color coffee table book, merging my metaphysical insights with transformational poetry and a celebration of visionary artwork. The beauty of this trio would provide the reader with a visually invigorating, healing energy and the vibrational frequencies of joy to enrich the mind, body, and soul. The combination of spiritual mantras and affirmations provide powerful words to help with meditative messages of self-motivation, mindfulness, and harmony to realize self-mastery.
A wonderful gift idea for the holidays or special occasions, The Joy of I.T. may be enjoyed as a colorful coffee table book or by your bedside table for a boost of mystical adrenaline, guiding your journey toward self mastery, harmony and infinite transcendence for the well being of all.
I enjoyed all of the fantastic art included in your book. What choices went into picking the right pieces to include?
I am a huge admirer of mixed media art and acrylic paintings that evoke various emotions, from elation and enthusiasm to pure appreciation for beauty. My goal was to collaborate with light workers whose artistic creations were well known in the New Age spiritual community. These incredible artists embody the light, anchored in love and kindness, transcending time, and space. We are a Soul tribe, connected and awakened to our highest potentiality through transformational journeys and unique experiences.
I am so grateful to have the opportunity and blessings to share the incredible healing poetry by Gillian Small and transformative art by Aurelien Pumayana Floret, Autumn Skye, Michelle Aristocrat and Daniel B. Holeman. It has been an honor to showcase and feature the contributions of digital art, photography, and visionary creations that are inspired by the goodness of humanity, the magic of nature, and the infinite spirit that connects us all.
Each piece has been carefully selected to provide visual stimulation and a vibrational match to the forty insights, messages, spiritual quotes, and enlightening poetry. I hope the reader resonates with the multi-dimensional teachings of love, hope, and harmony that unite us all during a time when the world is at a precipice of significant change. From my perspective, now is the time when we need to embrace and honor creativity, as artworks have the potential to guide humanity forward into a more positive and unified state of being.
Creativity is a direct manifestation of divine expression, and in my humble opinion, it is an opportunity to transmute the darkness, separation, shadows of pain and suffering, into visions of harmony, unity, collective healing, and wholeness.
The poetry in the book was thought-provoking and illuminating. Did you write these for this book or did you write them over time?
I wrote the first poem, “Metamorphosis” as a poetic sonata to honor my debut metaphysical thriller, Heart of a Warrior Angel: From Darkness to Light. My second poetry, “The Rise” was dedicated to my second paranormal fantasy, The De-Coding of Jo: Hall of Ignorance. My passion for writing these harmonic verses evolved during the global pandemic, as the creativity flowed through me.
I had an inner knowing that now more than ever, there is a dire need for inspiring creativity, radical intention settings, and rhythmic beauty that would help elevate the collective subconscious with infinite transcendence of hope and joy.
The forty poems, paired with the wisdom of the sages such as Rumi, Buddha, Carl Jung, Einstein, and many more incredibly powerful teachings, provides a treasure trove of wisdom and encouraging messages. Every single reflection is adorned with ecstatic mystical poems that touch every soul, looking for inner balance and seeking the unifying force within oneself that transcends culture, race, religion, lack, struggles, and limiting beliefs.
Since The Joy of I.T. is only available in hardcover format, I am also working on publishing my entire poetry collection, Ananda: Poetry for the Soul, as an ebook on January 21, 2021.
What is one thing you hope readers take away from your book?
This collaboration of light workers’ love and artistic expression serves as a mirror, both as a personal reflection and a collective revelation of a conscious community. It is my hope that this handbook for the soul awakens the reader and motivates them to embark on their own journey of self-actualization and self-empowerment, while enjoying the magnificence of glorious art.
May this tapestry of universal co-creation ignite each reader’s recognition of their own truth, sacred heart space, integrity, and the remembrance of the most powerful force within the unified field of grace and Divinity. May it bring joy, blessings of fulfillment, inner peace, and bliss.

The Joy of I.T. is a sublime collection of sublime poetry that inspires thought and reflection on consciousness and spirituality. This anthology contains forty different poems, along with mantras and affirmations that all serve to enlighten readers and arouse your senses. Interspersed throughout the book are various pieces of strikingly beautiful art. Each one is fit to be framed and hung up as they each evoke so many different emotions.
This is a fantastic collection of literature that can be enjoyed all in one sitting if you wanted to, but I think the true joy of this book comes in the ease with which you can pick it up and read one or two poems for a quick boost of spiritual enlightenment before going about your day.
Lali A. Love uses graceful and simple verse to convey uplifting messages on spiritual truth, purpose, love, and so much more in her poetry. What I enjoyed the most about this book was that it was so much more than a collection of poems. Readers are also treated to essays that explore diverse divine topics and metaphysical subjects. We’re also provided with some truly exceptional art from different artists. These, along with quotes, all serve to provide a cornucopia of literary food for the soul.
I recommend The Joy of I.T.: Infinite Transcendence to readers looking for a collection of inspiring poetry or someone looking to give the gift of light to a loved one this holiday season.
