We had the good fortune of connecting with Natalie Ventimiglia and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Natalie, what do you want people to remember about you?
That I have a relentless pursuit for truth. That I figured this place out and then made that information available to anyone who wanted it.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work. How did you get to where you are today professionally. Was it easy? If not, how did you overcome the challenges? What are the lessons you’ve learned along the way. What do you want the world to know about you or your brand and story?
My art is all about creating a gateway or a portal to higher truth or hidden knowledge. I have come to understand how difficult it can be for some people to accept truth even if there is overwhelming evidence of it. Mostly because truth requires change and sometimes it forces us to admit we have been deceived. In theory, most people would say they want to know truth. Although when someone hands you over a bit of truth, like a gift, the real challenge is to use discernment. Is this truth? Who’s truth. If this information was a gift I gave myself, how could I use it to improve my life. My son is about to turn 14 yrs. old and when asked what he wants for his birthday he says “Give me something I didn’t know I wanted.” That’s how I view truth. The evolution of “Art Stands by Me” follows a similar trajectory to my own personal truth. You can never really separate the art from the artist.
My interest in independent scientific research, spirituality and glass art has created the overlap necessary to perform Artistic Alchemy. With the help of several mentors, I began to remember things I know how to do without studying them in this lifetime. Every day with the help of the clients I meet and the art I make, I remember more and more about how to manipulate energy, time and dimensions. I am able to uncover programs that people are running that inhibit them from seeing themselves and their lives more clearly. At first I wasn’t sure I could trust these gifts. Could I really manipulate this reality by making art? If so, is this process repeatable? Turns out, I can and it is. I began testing this theory on myself. I began to see evidence in the physical that this process was indeed working. I began to feel different! My relationships were changing, it was easier for me to see and integrate new perspectives. This new way of thinking changed my perception of reality which actually changed my reality. Intentional Reflection TM, is the process I created to uncover the information I need to know in order to perform this Alchemy for the collective. It allows me to merge the gifts I have developed into a tangible portal. The art that comes out of this process is a gateway or bridge between Heaven and Earth. It meets the viewer where they are and has the ability to uncover the next step in their personal hero’s journey.
My biggest challenge has been believing this art based transformation is possible. Not just for me, yet for other people. This required some reinforcements in the way of an unexpected mentor. I had joined a Mastermind where independent thought and transformative ideas ran deep.
One day I was describing my brand’s mission to the group and one of the members, Eugene Vallilas, straight up called me out on how my personal energy wasn’t matching the energy I wanted to share with the world. I knew he was right and as someone relentlessly searching for truth, I took him up on his offer to coach me the next day via phone while he drove between appointments. Eugene was in the middle of writing “The Rebel’s Bible,” a book I highly recommend to anyone looking to chart their own path. I didn’t know much about what he did at the time except he was willing to help me and he seemed confident he could. Eugene uncovered my biggest fear in under 45 minutes while driving in LA traffic. I was afraid other people wouldn’t “get” the art, they wouldn’t feel the Alchemy I put into it. They wouldn’t experience the same awakening I had. I was afraid that if other people didn’t validate my work by their experience, the magic I knew it held would somehow cease to exist. Maybe it never existed. Maybe I’m crazy? What Eugene taught me is that all I have to do is make the work with intention. Uncover the highest possible potential of creating it and set it free. It’s not my job to be the doctor AND the patient. I create the portal, it’s up to the viewer whether or not they go through it. The fact that they might not even see it or believe it, doesn’t mean it’s not true in my reality. That changed everything.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I’ve lived in Denver for close to 14 years and I have to admit I don’t know it that well. I guess this has it’s advantages as there is so much left to uncover. A few days ago I took a drive through Guanella pass in my Jeep with one of my besties. I would do that again! That’s how I gauge most things. I’m always happy I tried something new, yet the real question is, “Would I do that again?” Using that logic, I spend a significant amount of time eating at Bronze Empire on Colorado Blvd. Don’t let the strip mall location fool you. It’s so good. There’s also a place on Havana that makes a fish shaped dessert stuffed with chocolate. Total score finding that place. H Mart is also under rated in my opinion. Pretty much anywhere you go and take 1906, you’re in good shape. In general, I haven’t been super focused on the outer world when there was so much to explore in my inner world. A shift has occurred and I’m now more excited to share what I have learned with Denver and in the process learn more about this evolving city and the people who call it home.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I’d like to give a shout out to duality and the 3rd Dimension. Without this process we would not have the big data needed to create Heaven on Earth.
