For those who are spiritually awake or began to experience this awakening this year, we understood all we experienced needed to be experienced for our soul’s growth and as part of the greater expansion of the Universe.
I have said it before and I will say it again … healing sucks, but ohhhhh so worth it. When we dig deep, and heal what is buried in the depths of our shadows of our subconscious minds, cellular memory of our body, and souls, we raise our frequency and vibration. We also free ourselves of all the resistance and blocks that were suppressing our gifts and light and step into our power of who we are as soul beings.
And we did just that – We got deep. We got real. We went into the darkness of our souls to heal and expand.
Here are some highlights of 2018:
The #MeToo movement continued to gain momentum as the veil continued to lift. With the divine feminine energy that has been rising, no wonder we are seeing this also rise up, and will continue to see it rise up in 2019. I suspect a few surprises in store for 2019. Don’t be shocked is all I will have to say.
There are some who are resisting to dig deep in their own shadows and heal whether it be out of fear and/or complacency creating clashes with those awake and doing their spiritual work. What we have seen play out across the globe in the environment, climate, and politics that mirrored this.
We recognized that what was “broken” in our lives – health, relationships, job, etc, was the result of either something unresolved or unhealed buried in our shadows or following path of ego spiritually bypassing our soul’s growth and healing.
We are understanding clearer what it means to stand in our power and live authentically unapologetically. This energy will amplify in 2019 for those doing their spiritual work. So hold on tight.
Our senses, especially empaths, became heightened and more sensitive. Some even found an increase sensitivity to toxic foods, chemicals, and medications.
Many experienced spiritual crisis or healing crisis that may have baffled the medical communities. I am not surprised as the medical system, although is wonderful in many ways, is designed to treat symptoms not root causes. It was a surge in these root causes (many stemming from old wounds or trauma) that are rising to be healed and cleared. This is where we have seen a surge of alternative therapies succeeding where traditional medicine is failing. I feel this trend will also continue into 2019.
The presence of dragons has never been stronger as it is right now. I know there are many out there who are feeling this too, and there are many who will disagree. The dragon energy is a powerful one to harness and a powerful force to work with moving into 2019.
What I Personally Experienced in 2018
“The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence. ” – Nikola Tesla
Death and Dying
I received a profound message from Spirit in the fall of 2017, while preparing for 2018. I heard a whisper from Spirit to keep the early part of the summer free from commitments as I would be dealing with loss.
This triggered waves of anxiety as there were several people and pets around me seriously ill and some I knew were terminal with cancer. Oddly enough, I was also triggered with waves of solace and peace as I’ve witnessed how the spirit world works in mysterious but beautiful ways.
So in the end of June of 2018, I experienced the loss of four individuals within 2 weeks. I was blessed and honored to have been a part of the end of life spiritual care and assisting in transitions of two of these beautiful souls.
What I experienced assisting several individuals in 2018 in the transition process is that death can be celebrated if not beautiful. Death doesn’t mean life ends or it’s over. It just means transformation from one energy vibration to another … often times our loved ones in spirit will leave us “signs” to let us know they are around.
Understanding the Role of Trauma in Our Lives. Exposing It. Healing It’s Roots.
The work I have been doing with trauma this year has shot up exponentially in ways I have found the traditional medical community ill-equipped to truly help these individuals experiencing what I considered an awakening that triggered a spiritual crisis.
The kinds of experiences I witnessed this year needless to say blew me away. My ability to expand grew as did the experience to bare witness to all sorts of incredible breakthroughs of so many brave amazing souls.
What we learned in 2018 is that much of our physical and/or mental issues whether a headache, tooth pain, sinus infection, IBS symptom, need for a knee replacement, need for hysterectomy, back pain etc was much more than what was presented on the surface. There were deep seeded layers upon layers subconscious wounds of old traumas (personal, generational, and/or past life) trying to be released.
Once we understood the connection, we shifted focus to treating the root cause vs the symptom with a team approach including family, therapists, doctors, significant others, domestic violence support groups, and much more in order to become “whole” again.
What we witnessed at the National Domestic Violence Conference I attended in September 2018, is that we must stand on our conviction. Plus, integrating ancient wisdoms, traditions, and healing practices as part of helping survivors of abuse was refreshing to finally see. To witness the power of an 11 yo girl stand in her full authentic power was inspiring. That being government funded is another way of patriarchal control preventing deep healing from taking place for survivors.
Since then, the VAWA has since lapsed and many programs are now in jeopardy. It will be interesting to see how this all plays out for 2019.
Every Day Miracles:
“But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don’t even recognize. A blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black curious eyes of a child, our own two eyes. All is a miracle.” – Thich Nhat Hanh
We witness miracles every day, but many times in our current society, we take them for granted and focus on the adrenaline rush of the “BIG” moments.
There are miracles every day from our body’s ability to self generate electricity to fight off cancer to transform the air we breath into nourishment for the soul to the earth’s ability to ward off harmful rays of the sun to the sun stimulating plants to grow and our bodies to manufacture valuable vitamins such as Vitamin D. Here are some miracles that happened in 2018:
To have a client who has been unwell for months with possible flair up from a degenerative autoimmune neurological condition, tell you that they can’t remember the last time they had function and mobility in their hand ever like they did after 2 sessions, and I was like WOW. They also informed me that the injection they get to treat this disease costs over $200k per dose.
To have an end stage terminal client unable to swallow their own saliva preventing them from eating for days, and after one focused session, that ability returned and would give a 3 day relief and ability to live out their final days with quality and dignity, before another session had to be administered. There was NO traditional medical treatment available to assist with this issue at that time
To watch my first ever local bald eagle circling over my office. When noticed, he flew off, and was later the sighting was validated in one of the major local newspapers. For those who follow me and understand, THIS was a great omen and sign.
To be able to participate in the transition of a loved one into spirit along side of a Catholic priest was a first for me and a beautiful experience. And in 2018, I was privileged with assisting in the transitions of three individuals this year,.
To being asked to be a guest speaker and medium at a local church and after the service, to receive not one but many beautiful letters from one special lady and this made me smile. Miracles happen when we least expect them.
This year I grew too along with all of you. I continued to work on the shadow aspects of myself and called in trust sources to assist me in the process.
I increased my own self care regimens and took a break from anything that would cause over-stimulation – tv, public places, computers, etc.
I sat in some powerful sacred circles with some amazing individuals who embody this spiritual walk.
I was also fortunate to study with Tadao Yamaguchi in April for my continued teacher Jikiden Reiki training.
Our programs also expanded. We offered 2 women’s retreats this past year where we dug deep and journeyed into self discovery in a community of sisterhood in a safe supported sacred container. We will are looking at collaborations to expand this program for 2019. Stay tuned.
The major theme is really about being the best piece of the larger puzzle of the universe. No competition. No grass is greener on the other side type themes, but more about you and being best version of you.
I feel miracles about to happen on so many fronts and dimensions. This #metoo movement has restored much in me that I thought was lost forever. Many of you have been hearing me talk about for months regarding the paradoxes, the silver linings, and shifts of focus.
Many of us have worked hard and diligent in cleaning up our vibration, facing our shadow selves, and choosing to live more authentically.
I see the personal storms clearing and the sun returning. This is the perfect time to plant those heirloom seeds you been wanting to plant.
Challenges for Many Still
If you have not worked on your shadows aka your junk over the past couple years, this year could prove to be challenging.
Healing the past is crucial to moving forward. I have seen a surge of “old traumas” over the past few years surface and amplifying with each year passing – whether our own, generational or past life.
We are at a crossroads now. We have become a culture who has normalized abuse and violence in many ways. So when it comes to things we did to others or things that may have happened to us in the past, we think time will heal all wounds, and brush it under the carpet.
Some of us may have seen ourselves do this. We may have even “gaslighted” ourselves in the process.
In order to move forward, you must heal and accept your authentic true self. No one ever said healing was a pleasant journey, but it is a worthwhile one that can lead us to our soul purpose and path.
As a matter of fact, healing can down right be painful and exhausting giving glimpses of questioning life and our faith. However, somehow, we manage to push through the barriers and search for that rainbow at the end of the storm that just wreaked havoc in our lives.
It is through our greatest adversities where we find the greatest gifts.
The hard human lessons for this year will include:
More transitions from physical form to spiritual form. Some physical bodies may be to weak to move forward. Others may have a soul that is too high of a frequency for the physical body to handle. Others may choose to exit and return in a different vessel.
This year is a three year in numerology (2+0+1+9 = 12/3). I always associate 12 with karma. This year will focus on a LOT of deeper issues and stuff especially in the realms of trauma, justice, and oppression. Some may not even be your own. It may be generational (can go back up to 7 generations) or it could be past life stuff.
The number three is about creative self expression, communication and is connected to the Ascended Masters such as Jesus, Buddha, Mohammed, Archangels.
Just as in 2018, the concept of self care, self acceptance, self love will increase momentum in 2019. You will be forced to look within and understand the relationship you have with your own soul and inner guidance system will be a huge determining factor on success and your definition of success.
The number three is connected to:
past, present, future
birth, life, death
beginning, middle, end
number connected to magic – “three times a charm”
The three Borromeam Rings are three rings that are interlocked. If any single ring is removed, the two remaining rings will fall apart.
primary colors – red, yellow, blue
The Triple Moon/The Triple Goddess. It shows her three aspects as maiden, mother and crone.
Gemini is the third astrological sign of the Zodiac. (May 21 – June 21)
Number three is the number of Jupiter.
In the Tarot, three is the card of the Empress which is symbolic for creation and growth.
Great Pyramid of Giza: There are three larger pyramids side by side mathematically aligned in position to Orion’s Belt. There are also three smaller pyramids nearby. The ancients emulated these shapes found in nature using threefold and sixfold symmetry.
The number three is a big transformational number too. Nikola Tesla understood this better than most.
“If you knew the magnificence of the three, six, nine, you would have a key to the universe.” – Nikola Tesla
Nikola Tesla was a genius and superstitious. He understood the magic of these numbers and the universal language of pattern aka numbers found in life, galaxies, evolution, sacred geometry, and almost all natural systems which are actually devoid of the numbers 3, 6, 9. He understood that 3 + 3 + 3 = 9. Nine is a number connected to the secrets to unlocking the mysteries of the Universe.
So this is another BIG year in numerology terms. This will be focused on digging deeper into the shadow aspects of ourselves, stepping forward in our authenticity and power, personal transformation and letting go of expectations of people, places and things for 2019.
Are you ready?
Here are 6 tips to guide you in 2019:
These tips are pretty much the same as I wrote about for 2018, but will be amplified for 2019. The concept of living more authentically in 2019 is crucial.
Practice the art of presence. Some refer to this practice also as mindfulness. Be aware of your thoughts, actions, and reactions. Adjust as necessary to bring you back to the present moment.
Listen to the wisdom of the body. When we build a relationship with our bodies and listen to its wisdom, we are given insight and healing to things before that may have left us feeling stuck like a hamster on a wheel.
Raise your vibration. By being more mindful of our thoughts and how it affects our wellbeing and life, we can become more aware of how to shift. When we listen to the wisdom of the body, we become more aware of how our thoughts physically, emotionally and spiritually affect us. By focusing on gratitude, we raise our vibration. Sickness and disease live on lower vibrational energies.
Self Care. This has been a theme than began in 2015, but really increased its momentum as witnessed in 2018. Self care needs to no longer be at the bottom of the list, but rather at the top of the list. You and your loved ones will thank you in the end. Not to mention, you set a prime example of caring for yourself in a loving and compassionate way to your children. What a gift!
Rise Up. Act. This is time to get involved in a social justice project. The energies have not been more supported in this area since I began my personal journey in 2005. I am excited to us all become more empowered and living more authentically in our truth.
As always, I am here to help you illuminate your soul, guide you on your path, assist you in removing toxicity, and restore wholeness in your life.
I am available for private sessions, groups, speaking appearances, and more. Contact me for more information or to schedule a private session.
Happy New Year to you and yours. In the meantime, be gentle with yourself, and master riding these waves of change.
Good morning from Webb Memorial State Park in Weymouth, MA.
Please join us as we will be talking about the current cosmic energies, what is happening, how it is affecting all of us individually and collectively and why the wisdom of the body holds the key to the answers you seek.
We will also talk about trauma, the health links, healing trauma, and what is happening now.
We will end with some mindful breathing and meditation in nature. Please stay til the end. There is some magic to be seen.
I hope you will join me and together let’s raise the vibration.

As we close out the year, we can sit back and reflect on all the growth and changes we have made throughout the year. As difficult as the year has been for many, we are, nonetheless, still here for a reason. If you are reading this, you were meant to.
So right now we are at the completion of 2016, and with it our last period of mercury retrograde which so many people look at and dread. Everything is a matter on how you choose to react and perceive things. I choose to work with these energies for what they are intended for such as what I call the “re” effect like reflection, redoing, readjustment, relaxation, revamping, realignment, repairing, etc. I have personally been reflecting all month on where I was, where I am, what work I still have to do, and where I am going.
All year we have been met with some very exciting times for soul and human growth, combined with what may appear as extreme smack downs. No one ever said healing was a pleasant journey, but it is a worthwhile one that can lead to all of what your soul desires.
As a matter of fact, healing can down right be painful and exhausting giving glimpses of questioning life and our faith. However, somehow, we manage to push through the barriers and search for that rainbow at the end of the storm that just wreaked havoc in our lives. It is through our greatest adversities where we find the greatest gifts.
Just like the life of the caterpillar that transforms into the beautiful butterfly, the journey in the cocoon is quite ugly. Yet, the caterpillar still chooses to cocoon and continue onto the journey.
Can you relate to this at all so far? If you are unsure if this makes sense, let me elaborate through my personal experience and story and hope it helps give you some clarity.
The Northern Harrier Laura captured while visiting Cape Cod in August of 2016. (c) 2016 All Rights reserved.
When this year began, I was excited about the path I was leading, but suddenly I was met with what my human self aka ego would perceive as extreme setbacks with the surprise of not only an ending, but severing of several very close relationships, one being with my children. This was extremely difficult for me and made me reevaluate, question, and at times beg for divine intervention to help me move past the crap that I had endured especially in regards to a previous abusive 10 year marriage that ended 10 years ago, but his abusive pursuits only stopped in the last 2 years.
It was hard, and many of my writings and public speeches discussed some these experiences not to air my stuff, but to help others who may be experiencing similar know they are not alone and what to do. As I continued to release, let go, continued my meditation and reiki practice, and work with my divine team, my faith was slowly being restored.
My experiences this past January were far from glorifying, but outright painful as I was forced to look at all the painful traumas in this life, generationally, and karmicly all at the same time. With all that I knew and all my training to date, I was not sure I would make it to be honest.
My physical body began to amplify some disturbing symptoms from:
Extreme irregular menses
Extreme almost hemorrhagic uterine bleeding
Re-emergence of PTSD symptoms such as flashbacks, fear, worry, nightmares, and more.
Severe pelvic pain and lower back pain
Ringing in my ears
Bizarre instances of choking
Fluttering in heart area
Periods of inability to move
These are just some of what I experienced to name a few. All of the doctors could not explain the cause of my symptoms. However, my divine team kept reassuring me that things will begin to improve by mid-June. I work both in the spiritual realm, but also the holistic health realm with a background in western healthcare. So when I go to a western medical doctor, I already have a clue as to the cause of my symptoms, being a combination of spiritual ascension symptoms as well as adrenal stress from years of PTSD fight or flight. However, my goal is to try to get my western medical teams to prove me wrong.
(c) 2016 Laura Healing With Spirit
So needless to say, as the months went on, I stayed on the path best I could as instructed by my divine team since my western medical team could not find a cause for any of my variety of symptoms. The only treatment was a hysterectomy and medications to mask the cause or numb the cause that they did not know was the issues. All my tests to that point have been negative.
By mid-May, my lower pelvic and back pain escalated as well as my bleeding where I bled heavily for over 30 days straight so much so I hemorrhaged a few days prior to me flying out for my continued Jikiden Reiki training. I sought out medical attention and had physical exam, blood work and ultrasound. All NORMAL.
The day after, my symptoms began to improve. That date was key and my spiritual guides reminded me of the significance because I began doubting that things would improve by mid-June. How could they if I am seemingly getting worse? That date in May was the anniversary of a very traumatic event. My physical body was trying to release it. It just needed my help emotionally, mentally and spiritually to help it do so.
I knew once I went out for my training program, things might get a little worse if I was right all along that this is a spiritual cleansing and karmic healing. And it did. So much so that my teacher instructed me to see a Tibetan doctor known for treating the Dali Lama. I did as requested. For the first time in years, a doctor confirmed my suspicions, but recommended additional dietary and herbal supplement changes on top on my routines.
So like everything else, things came in waves. With each wave, I did my best to do some introspection as to what is coming to the surface to be let go of. Some things have been easier to release than others. That is our human side, but especially the traumatized human side fearful of change despite what you already know.
My spiritual practice and personal life have been significantly improved. The quality of individuals of who I surround myself with have improved. Some of the things I have been working on for over 10-11years have finally manifested. So it appeared that I was finally at home stretch.
Cape Cod with Laura communing in nature 2016
So just before the holiday, my small dog that I use as a therapy dog was attacked by a domestic dog. On top of this, I was hit with the massive cosmic energies that were bombarding the Earth plane since Thanksgiving which zapped me energetically as I was forced into slow motion for a few days. Again, the cosmic shifting forced me to address old stuff and strong emotions like anger that had risen for the first time in many many years. At the time I did not realize this, but later understood that if anger emerged, that was a very old emotion. This means I am closer than I realize to where I need to be.
In regards to the dog attack, the irony here is the night before we came in contact with a coyote, but no incidence. We have come in contact with a coyote by itself at least a dozen times and on 2 occasions with a pack, with no incidence in recent years. I have chosen to learn to live in harmony with these magical beings that some like to call vermin. I am not naïve as I take precautions when I am out especially at night. It starts with awareness and vigilance. I do not fear the coyote so it does not smell fear on me. I one time chased one with my dog in my arms just to let him know who’s the alpha dog around here.
So I was stunned that what appeared to be a nice domestic dog would just attack and rip my dog’s head open. However, then I remind myself the state of the cosmic energies and planetary alignment. So instead of getting mad or upset at that moment, I chose to reflect and even felt bad for the other dog as to what happened to it for it to feel the need to attack especially to attack a dog used as a therapy dog.
At one point, I was extremely emotional wondering if she would need surgery to repair a salivary gland as she began to make a turn for the worse the day after Christmas. That day I began a regimen of adding turmeric to her food, reiki, community prayers. Within two days, her wound is suddenly improved and no surgery required as of yet. So what is the lesson here this time? What is it that I am supposed to learn?
When I asked that question to my divine team as I was leaving the surgeons office, I heard “magic” and “miracles”. Sometimes these setbacks although can be very exhausting, labor intensive, and draining, forces you to stick to what you’ve learned and trained for all these years since you left your abuser finally in 2006. This was a validation of the power of holistic treatments and community prayer.
Now I filled you with all of the “what went wrong” scenarios. What went right? When I spoke about my challenges publicly, I occasionally spoke about the affects of the changing energies on the human body especially with those inflicted with trauma and how to deal with it.
The bald eagle Laura captured off of Parsons Beach in Maine in September 2016. (c) All Rights Reserved.
During my big event in January, I had countless people come up to me to tell me how inspired they are and I deepened their understandings in their own lives. Later, when I spoke about some of my own traumas and what I did holistically and spiritually to heal,I will never forget the young man who if I were to judge looked like he walked straight out of a gang. I was scared that day to talk about a subject matter of a trauma I never talked about before, but spirit kept insisting to do. So, I did. This young man approached me afterwards and told me he could not thank me enough. He just went to an AA meeting a few days prior and disclosed some of the traumas he endured for the first time and by witnessing my strength, gave him courage to stay clean and gave him hope.
I have countless emails, feedbacks, and more that I have received over the year from so many people, that it made what I was doing so worth while and reassuring that I was and am on the right path even when I doubted myself. By talking about my journey and sharing it, I was keeping it real. I was keeping it authentic.
Other amazing things happened in moments of the divine such as experiences with hawk, bald eagle, osprey, coyote, and more. The messages were profound and reassuring.
Lessons of 2016:
So for 2016, we close out a chapter that primarily focused on the previous 10 years. This year I was taught to have a little more faith and trust since it was stripped from me, and each of these events were difficult, but also reassuring that things are happening for a higher purpose. This is what I learned:
To take my power back from especially abusive, narcissistic, sociopathic individuals. And I did not do it the way the human logical brain would expect you to do it either. My explanation on that will come at another time.
Help from the divine does happen, and many times leave you signs to let you know they are there or as confirmations you are on the right track.
How well we partner with our soul.
How well we surrender and trust in the divine.
How well we let go of control of the things that are making us sick even if ego says not to let go, but the gut says yes.
How well we choose the right people who are in vibrational alignment with us not the ones we empathize so deeply for we end up sacrificing ourself so much it is harmful to us physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and financially.
How well we institute the RIGHT self-care practices that address the whole mind, body, and spirit.
To invest in our well-being for no other reason so we can shine our inner light brighter. This is not for superficial means for superficial instant gratification either.
How well we do not reach for a pill first or external fix for an internal problem that will only mask or create a band aid effect temporarily. Eventually, you will need to deal with your junk.
Learning to slow down a bit.
Learning to shut off the noise and propagandas shoved in our faces daily by those living in lower vibrations refusing to change or on a path driven by ego and greed.
How well we raise our vibrations in times of crisis.
How well we stay in vibrational alignment with our truth and purpose.

So what is in for us in 2017?
I anticipate a rocky transition for some due to the cosmic climate. The year 2017 is a one year in numerology. What does that mean? Either you have been doing your work or not, that is up to you and your higher self. Next year is the year for new beginnings with a new cosmic cycle.
So you have a choice to write not only a new chapter in your book, but write a whole new book altogether. What do you choose? Are you going to write a new book or are you going to keep relooking and staying stuck in the last book you have read how many times?
I feel 2017 will focus us on two areas … our internal environment and spiritual development and the awakening of more truths combined with many external events we need to address and not bury our heads in the sand.
One of the signs Laura ususally receives from Spirit is hearts. Do you see the heart? This was taken in Maine (c) 2016 All Rights Reserved
I anticipate the energies to still feel like massive waves of various energies hitting us at various rates and intensities as we enter 2017 while we continue to have our physical bodies, emotional and mental bodies, and spiritual bodies adjust. These adjustments or recalibrations from my perspective are not only the cosmic vibrations to a higher dimension that is actually altering our very DNA structure, but affects how we balance the needs of the physical self with the needs of the spiritual self.
I feel it will take a few months depending on where you are at in your spiritual development to feel less rocky waves and a period of calmness. I feel the cosmic climate may also feel a little strange as we shift in between dimensional worlds depending on what sign you are and where you are at in your spiritual development. We may feel lapses in time, accelerations or time warps. Mood shifts or erratic behaviors may amplify and seem weird or out of the blue. As always, I say with preparation and awareness, you can shift your reactions and therefore, shift your results.
However, I caution, that the more your internal world is creating more peace and balance, you will be more awake than ever and certain truths if have not already been revealed, will continue to reveal themselves. When this happens it might not look pretty. Just like Keanu Reeves waking up in the film the Matrix, certain external “events” will need your call to action. I suggest you begin aligning yourself with an agenda to be a part of whether it be the homeless, “water is life” Dapl movement, human rights, affordable health, sustainable renewable energy, GMO, or the like as I feel these are all areas under attack that are asking you to choose your battle.
The peace you are developing within is also aligning you to a greater consciousness … and unity which is where the greatest power of all lies … Universal LOVE. It is from this place, you will become the greatest instrument of change.
There is NO greater power than the Universe itself. With that power you have ying/yang or in this case the power of love/fear. The next 10 years of the evolution of consciousness and how we all align will determine the fate of all humanity. Mother Earth has been asking for us to align with her. Many have heard her call. However, many also need to heed her warnings.
We can start today. On top of what I mentioned we can choose if we buy water from a company who aids in polluting our waters. We can choose to buy foods that are not the equivalent to eating arsenic making us ill. We can choose to shop and support your local farmer and retailer. We can choose to not put our monies in big banks that fund the destruction of our very resources that keep us alive and into smaller local banks or credit unions. We can choose to invest in energies that are better for our planet. We can choose to do random acts of kindness. We can choose to live in a more eco-friendly sustainable environment. Some of these take time, but at least it is a start.
The hawk feather Laura stumbled upon while on her meditative walk in Maine. (c) 2016 All Rights Reserved.
Miracles do happen to those who believe. Never forget that. See the hawk feather below? This is one of many signs Spirit gives me daily to guide me or to reassure me that I am on the right path.
It is important to keep the faith. Stay focused, and count our blessings not matter how difficult things may appear. New beginnings are just around the corner. It is time to spread your wings like the butterfly.
The Butterfly story
I heard this story about the butterfly and found it so profound, I want to share with you. I can not recall the source and will do my best to tell the story in hopes you find it equally as profound.
One day, this girl saw this caterpillar in her yard and she stopped for a moment to stare at it. She was neither disgusted nor in awe by this little creature. She was just curious as she watched it munch away on a leave of a plant in her yard. She thought she would help it by gathering more leaves to feed it. She got a little discouraged that it did not eat anything she had left for it. She was worried it was not eating enough.
On day she returned, and saw it was dangling from a branch, and did not know what to think. So for that day she left it alone. The next day she returned to check on her new caterpillar friend to see is struggling so hard inside this encasement, and it worried her so much. She ran home to tell her mother, but mom said not to bother.
The little girl was all frantic, and she was afraid for the little caterpillar and felt the need to save it somehow. So she found a knife and went back to check on her caterpillar friend once again, and it appeared to be violently struggling inside this encasement. Her pulse began to rise. Her breathing began to become rapid, and she began to panic. She thought to herself, that there must be something she can do to save the caterpillar.
So she did what she thought was the next best thing, she cut open the encasement to free her caterpillar from all the struggle. A very wet wing not fully developed fell out as well as what appeared to be a newly forming butterfly. The butterfly fell out and onto the ground. It attempted to move its very wet not fully formed wings, but could not.
The little girl wept, not knowing what to do. All she wanted was to help the little caterpillar so it did not have to be in pain or struggle so hard in that encasement. She thought what she was doing was trying to save it from its pains and struggles, but instead, the butterfly died as it was not fully developed and ready to fly.
Just like the caterpillar needed to make what may appear as a violent, painful struggle to become the caterpillar, so do our human souls.
It is time to complete the transformation and become the butterfly we were all meant to be. Are you ready?
The choice is yours to make. The Universe can keep giving you signs til you are blue in the face, but at the end of the day, it is you that must make the first step.
If we learn to surf these crazy energetic waves of change instead of fearing what wave will hit us next, we not only raise our vibration, but create the change and bring more joy.
There’s a Buddhist saying about mastering the art of calm in the middle of the storm. Together, we can make a better world. Here is our chance. The choice is yours to make.
October 13, 2016 BY; Laura Joseph, Healing With Spirit, Spiritual Medium, Speaker, Healer, Author Excerpts from Lecture Sunday, October, 16, 2016 at The First Spiritualist Church of RI
What a ride this year has given us especially on the emotional plane. Many of us have been experiencing sudden bursts of unexplainable anxiety and may feel quite ungrounded. Maybe the seeds we planted have not sprouted as we’d like or maybe they are smothered by worry and fear or maybe you are not able to see what is growing. How many of you have been worrying whether or not you are good enough or lovable enough or deserving enough?
Please know we are in the journey together and you are not alone. I chose the topic of water and spirituality for many reasons. We are all undergoing a great change including Mother Earth as we shift from the third dimension to the fourth and fifth dimension. The veil of illusion is lifting. These changes are happening at such and incredible rate causing physical changes to happen with the body itself.
Our planet is transmutating and so are we …. Our bodies, our souls, our cells. The coding that was imprinted in our DNA structures is currently being activated. This is your blueprint back to the ancients.
Many religions and spiritual practices include water in their ceremonial and ritualistic practices and we are going to talk about this topic in light of what is currently happening in this material world and how it affects us spiritually.
Why this topic? There are many reasons, but here are four:
In light of recent historic events occurring at Standing Rock with the largest gathering of “water protectors”
This weekend’s full moon is currently in Aries and how it affects us now
Ending of cycles and beginning a new – This year being a 9 year in numerology and what this means for our soul growth.
Water as being sacred.
There is so much going on right now and we can choose to either get sucked into the chaos or rise above it. How many of you are appalled at the state of what is happening in this country and around the world most notably pronounced is the US Presidential election?
How are you doing emotionally? Regardless of the current political environment.
Have any lessons risen up for you this year but especially over the last month or so?
Right now we have an opportunity. However, we need to shift our perspective in order to shift our results. This is like fine tuning a musical instrument or making carburetor adjustments to your vehicle.
We can choose to focus on the doom and gloom out of fear or we can choose to create change through the frequency and vibration of love.
Hate? Worry? Intolerance? Depression? Those are all fear based. Joy? Happiness? Authentic truth? Compassion? Consciousness? Those are all love based. If you have ever read or studied “Abraham” Hicks and Eckhart Tolle, both have been great spiritual teachers on the mastery of vibrational alignment. Which vibration are you currently vibrating in? Which vibration do you choose to be in?
Why is water so important? Why is honoring our water needed and important to our human self as well as our spiritual self? What can water teach us to help us evolve spiritually?
Before I address the importance, we must first take inventory and take personal responsibility for where are currently at in our lives. I know this is not an easy task for many as we must face head on our shadow self and all the junk attached. In some cases, this can be triggering for those traumatized as a result of situations such as war, violence, or domestic abuse. As a survivor of abuse with a history of PTSD, I sympathize.
However, this is the time to step up and take action. The Universe has been giving us signs and has been supporting all of us who have been called to light the way for others to find their way home and help save our wounded Mother. Water is key. So hang on for the divine reinforcements and help. It is a matter of trust, surrender and belief.
Water has many spiritual meanings and implications, but most importantly water reflects its sacredness. It represents the “circulation of life”. Water is to our Mother Earth just as the blood that flows through our veins is to our physical bodies. Water is the very life force for which gives birth to life. No wonder NASA and other organizations are searching for signs of life through water on other planets.
Our bodies are made up of mostly water making water vital for human survival. “According to Dr. Jeffrey Utz, Neuroscience, pediatrics, Allegheny University, different people have different percentages of their bodies made up of water. Babies have the most, being born at about 78%. By one year of age, that amount drops to about 65%. In adult men, about 60% of their bodies are water.”
Water also has some symbolic significance relating to purity and fertility as the source of life as seen in many creation myths.
In Taoist tradition, water is viewed as an aspect of wisdom. Here, the concept is the philosophy that water takes the path of least resistance. The path of least resistance is part of nature. We see this with rivers which flows around rocks and mountains while slowing shaping the landscape. Hence, the element of patience to create change.
Coy Right 2014-2016 Healing With Spirit
“Water is one of the five elements, and can manifest as yin or yang: flowing water, ice, or steam. It flows and finds its way into all places. This is seen in the Dao de Ching, which says the highest good is like water. The best of man is like water, giving life to all things, it flows in places that men reject. So, it is like the dao. All streams flow to the sea because it is lower than they are, humility gives it power. Think about that.”
The Greeks also understood the transitions of water manifesting as liquid, solid, or vapor. It is the epitomal symbol for metamorphosis and philosophical recycling.
Native Americans considered water a valuable commodity especially in the plain states. They revered water as the symbol of life.
We have been experiencing and baring witness to a great transition and/or transformation that we have not seen in hundreds of years. Right now our wounds fresh or old have been resurfacing this year. This may be the most difficult task you are to experience on this earth. However, the life you seek is not found by avoiding the past or avoiding the hurts and pains associated with it. Healing comes from letting the pains of the past go knowing this is right for your path.
Remember, it is only through resistance do we grow and truly move forward. When we avoid issues, the Universe keeps sending them back for review. This is not to punish you. Please do not misunderstand.
Right now we have the current full moon in the fiery sign of Aries. Now I am far from being called an astrology expert, and consider myself quite weak in the astrology realms. However, I do understand cosmic cycles and energy shifts and I feel, witness and understand patterns. Today’s energies are a reflective of a great time to exert a little more faith and courage. The divine within is with you.
We are currently being showered with divine healing love which if you have not noticed is greatly needed at this time. It is all about how we choose to focus. We CAN choose to be receptive to this divine healing bringing us closer towards greater harmony or we can choose to stay in the shadows of fear and doubt.
In India, today’s full moon is associated with the Hindu goddess of wealth and prosperity, Lakshmi. What a great opportunity we have here to allow Lakshmi’s divine feminine infuse the healing energies of the full moon to detoxify and create a flow of abundance. If you have been feeling unsure, now is the prime opportunity to bathe in the moon. Stop trying to control the outcomes and expectations and just receive. You just might find you will get what you are seeking without all the resistance and stress. In tarot, water is symbolized in the suit of cups. The suit of cups is symbolic of emotion, intuition, and interconnected flow of energy between all things alive.
Water is essential to our very existence. It is no wonder the symbolism is far reaching and profoundly deep. The wisdom of water is infinite and significant to our current times.
Water and spirituality as you can see go hand and hand. Many religions and spiritually based practices include water in many ceremonies, prayers, meditative practices, and rituals.
Water is a very powerful element with the potential to heal or destroy on many levels. Water is very amiable. When stressed simply wash your hands of negativity. Now increase the temperature and make it hot. This adds the fire element. Let the fire and water help you release all those is no longer of service for your highest and best. Once released, cool the water back down for a more regenerative vibrations.
Things you can do NOW … today
Shift perspective. – Inside environment. Healing is internal not external
Rain – when it comes, instead of creating the vibration of oh my word, it is raining now my plans are ruined etc. Bless the rain for it brings life.
Do you own internal work – Change begins with us by the frequency and vibration we put out. That is the true virus. Is your vibration of fear or love?
Self care, self care, self care – self compassion, and soul-fillment
Be like water
The power of the sacred waters runs within each of us. Among all the chaos, we see the greatest opportunity for unity and soul growth.
This is a historic moment backed by prophecies with the unity of hundreds of tribes from US, Canada, Central America, Hawaii, South America all in the Dakotas in Standing Rock BE-ing the water protectors. This is the largest gathering of its kind in more than a century.
There’s a large camp growing with focus on prayer and creating solutions including people pulling money out of the big banks that are supporting the pipeline. We have a chance here. This is a historic event, and Mother Earth is making it known.
Mother Earth is alive and breathing whether or not you choose to believe that or not. We need to listen to her as she does communicate with us. The current transmutation process we are all experiencing will help strengthen the ties. We need to see and listen and respect the land and water as sacred.
I believe the current recent events and especially Standing Rock is our chance. Don’t focus on the hurricane we are in, but the rainbow and sun that follows.
What we all have been experiencing this year is due to the increased energies vibrating at a higher frequency. Our physical bodies are trying to catch up speeding up our molecular structure. Some may be experiencing a spiritual flu so to speak wishing when it will end. Our bodies are learning to evolve and adapt to the new frequencies creating in some cases energy overloads as the physical body attempts to maintain it’s natural state of homeostasis or in simple terms, balance.
So be gentle with yourself as you go through these changes. Focus on healing the emotional and mental bodies which is again symbolic with the element of water. BE like water. Create the vibrational alignment between your heart, mind, and spirit. Step into your role as co-creator within the Universal Laws. Create the frequency and vibration of love, and let it begin to vibrate out to the external world and the rest of the cosmos. This will help us uncover our true passions that lead to the evolution and growth of our souls.
Faith is so important here. I know we have all been tested. I believe the reason many people never see the Universe working in their lives is because they gave up too soon. They did not hang in there long enough for the Universe to manifest.
Quitting is not an option. If we choose to quit on the Universe, then we inherently believe it’s all up to us alone and we will be like the hamster on the wheel never getting off. We are never alone. As a testament to many great spiritualist mediums who prove every day the continuity of life and the divine presence of Angels, guides, and Ascended Masters.
Remember, this is a 9 year in numerology. We are at the home stretch of completing this cycle. Clear, purge, ground, balance, and align yourself with your higher self so the year 2017 creates a strong foundation for the next 10 years of the life you wish to create.
I will end with this quote from Bruce Lee: “Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way round or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves. Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water my friend.”
With Love and appreciation, Laura Healing With Spirit,
Spiritual Medium, Public Speaker, and Teacher Usui Reiki Master Teacher Shihankaku in Jikiden Reiki
There is lots happening. Can you feel all the shifting energies? Over the last 30 days we have seen lots of prodding, shifting, and adjusting.
How’s your energy lately? If you’ve been feeling exhausted or having trouble sleeping, then you may be feeling the shift.
It’s amazing to me that no matter who I talk to about this topic, I am always reminded that these shifts can be a challenge no matter where you are at in your spiritual journey. After all we are all spiritual beings having a human experience, right?
So how is what we are feeling and experiencing being driven by the cosmos?
Well the planets were very active in all this shifting we are experiencing with 5 planets that are in retrograde in April. Now, I am no astrology expert, and I would say that I am far from that and rely on my astrology friends to help explain certain aspects. I am an energy healer and lightworker. Therefore, I can sense and feel subtle energy. What I do understand is energy and how it makes me feel and what common threads I see playing out around me and my environment. I have learned to understand over the years how planetary shifts also affect us physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
So here are the five planets that are in retrograde in April 2016. On January 7th, Jupiter was the first planet to turn retrograde. This was followed by the planet Saturn on March 25th, Mars on April 17th, Pluto on April 18th, and finally Mercury goes retrograde on April 28th. WOW!
Here is a great explanation about retrogrades on findyourfate.com.“Astrologically, Retrogrades happen when planets, and the energy they represent, are too far out and need to come back in line with the Earth. This is when you need to slow down.”
From what I have witnessed over the past year and most importantly in recent months, our energy cores have been pushed to extremes, prodded, and forced to examine our inner selves and workings while questioning our own versions of realities. Most of the re-calibrating and shifting was bringing up lots of old karmic, childhood, traumas, etc that were kept deep in our base of our energy cores to be released as they no longer serve our highest good. Many of those I work with or have spoken to on this topic have experienced this, but thought they addressed these issues and ignored the need for release. This is not the time to ignore, but a time to kick these toxic energies out of our core.
What I have felt since Mars and Pluto went retrograde is a shift of the clearing of our energy cores to the higher realms especially targeting the areas of the pineal gland which is a small pea-sized endocrine gland located near the center of the brain behind the cerebellum.
Physiologically speaking, the pineal gland is responsible for producing the hormone melatonin aka your biological on/off light switch for sleep functioning as well as regulating the body’s natural bio-rythems.
Spiritually speaking, the pineal gland is linked to the third eye and considered the most powerful area for ethereal energy.
Symptoms of an “awakening” of the pineal gland include:
pressure at the base of the brain
However, as some are already feeling the affects of the planet mercury going retrograde, we must also consider all elements of communication too starting to affect us.
At the end of it all, this is all about personal growth. It is all how we choose to perceive the world around us. Some react to these retrogrades in a negative fashion, but there are positive aspects to them too. Again, it is all how we choose to view these experiences which are designed to help us evolve. This is a wonderful time period to go inward and do some introspection work. This will allow us to connect with the divine within and shine our light so we may follow.
The themes currently playing out that you need to be extra mindful and pay extra attention to include:
personal growth/expansion (Jupiter)
love and relationships (Pluto)
emotions, but especially in areas of anger (Mars)
the need for more self care
So, going into May, this is a GREAT time for many things such as:
connecting with soul aka your inner child and building a partnership
a time for slowing down and contemplation
an opportunity to readjust, redo, reevaluate or fine tune things
to develop a love affair with self – not ego self, but the authentic true self
to relax and go with the ebbs and flows of the Universe
more self-care, self-compassion and nurturing
practice daily mindfulness via quantum breathing, meditation, reiki, yoga
May will be a month to slow down the pace. Do not force things. Go with the flow. This month and this year will serve as a great teacher for us all on how to truly embody patience and self-compassion while we continue on the path of self discovery and our authentic truth.
So for today, I choose not only to enjoy the ride, but the embrace everything my soul is guiding me towards. How about you?
Since 2016 began, we have been pushed to extremes, prodded, and forced to examine our inner selves and workings. What I see is that we’re being forced to address the idea of attachments and the art of learning to detach. We build attachments as human beings to people, places, and things.
Our human ego builds emotional attachments and feeds on them. The big struggle I am seeing with many of us right now as we adjust to all the downloads and cosmic upgrades, is learning to let go of those attachments and trust in the process. This doesn’t mean that you stop caring or stop doing certain things. It simply means removing the emotional attachments.
The art of learning to detach oneself from people, places, and things, has proven to be a undaunting task for sure as we begin to question everything and everyone in our lives. We even begin to question our very existence and path. Are you experiencing this yourself? I’d like know, and I’m sure others would too.
We have been shown how strong the will of ego can play on our mind, body, and spirit and wreak havoc in the process hindering progress of our soul growth. But really, is it hindering the process or is all of this part of the evolution of our soul?
Once the illusions are peeled away, our truth is revealed. How scary it is when driving blind in the darkness, but how liberating it can be when you can see the light again from a different view?
Just like we wake up every morning, we brush our teeth everyday. We eat everyday to fuel our body, mind and spirit. Our body eliminates waste every day removing toxins that no longer serve us. We must also exercise the art of letting go and detaching from those situations, people, places, and things that are holding us back from our spiritual path and soul growth.
We are a part of a larger consciousness. As a society, many feel we can control anything and everything. However, in reality that is ego creating a false sense of reality. When we choose to decide to let go of control, partner with source energy, you just might find everything else in your life improves … home life, relationships, work, etc.
Why do we expend so much energy into holding onto attachments that no longer serve are highest self? It is a question I have been asking myself repeatedly over the last month.
Is it because we know we have a lot of toxic waste to dump, and just like Mother Earth using floods, hurricanes, and other storms to clean house, sometimes it gets a little too mucky and dirty for us face? This is despite the fact, we know at the end of every storm, you reach the pristine soil ripe for planting those seeds you wish to flourish. You cannot plant heirloom flowers in toxic soil. We must clean it up and start amending it to get what we do want.
As a result, many of us are experiencing huge purges especially of old emotional traumas and pain. If you are part of society resisting this, I pray for you. You are the group experiencing the most pain right now. Law of attraction teaches us that resistance is futile and as above, so below.
I know I personally have had my symptoms heighten or worsen include: sleep disturbances, PTSD triggers, heightened anxiety, voice issues, ringing in the ear, lung and breathing issues, vocal cord issues, fatigue, lack of appetite, and increased thirst. So you see you are not alone. We are all one. We are each other’s brothers and sisters.
As I was doing my meditative walk this morning thinking about this topic of detachment and my journey this year so far. I stumbled upon first a cardinal feather followed by a turkey feather.
If I look at the coincidences of time which today’s date February 5, 2016 at approximately 9am, I can study the numerological message of “Stay balanced and positive. That cycle you wish to change will be ending shortly”
Both feathers are also signs from my spirit team, angels, and source energy aka soul that we are on the right track. Again, another confirmation. It’s a message to help us stay focused on the path that we are trying to create and have faith that all good things are coming to us.
What do I do to stay on the path without losing my mind? I practice the art of appreciation, gratitude, and forgiveness every day. I meditate and practice Reiki every day. I have a set of affirmations posted on sticky notes on my bathroom mirror that I cite every day. I have healthy relationships with my core friends who support me and are there for me without criticism or judgements. Many of us have toxic family members and friends. How is that working out for you? I do my best to avoid processed and non GMO foods. I get into nature and ground.
Remember, it’s always darkest before dawn. Bad times never last. So focus on memories of previous good times you have had to help you through the bad times.
And as a constant message from my spirit team, angels and soul have been delivering to me consistently for weeks now, “trust that you’re so has your back. Let your soul light the way, and you just follow.”
The past few days I have been reflecting a lot of what 2015 has meant to me and to those I have served. It has sure proven itself to be one giant roller coaster ride. Wouldn’t you agree? I would love to hear from you what your experiences have been, and what you discovered and learned about yourself
If you read my previous posts, you will see an emerging theme which is about soul. We thought the year 2014 was a grand year for purging and letting go for what no longer serves us, but 2015 was sure a doozy.
Depending on how you choose to see 2015, it was a year of many things:
a year of manifestation
a climax of purging and letting go.
a year for realization of what truly matters
a year for rediscovery of self
and a year for partnership with soul.
The hardest part for so many I have found this year, is learning to let go of control and trust that your soul has your back. Life for me has not always been easy, and I had my share of dark days. Some of you may know my story, but many do not. That’s ok.
What has helped me through my darkest of days is trusting in the divine … trusting in my soul … trusting my spirit team. I also learned your head and heart will steer you wrong because of ego. However, your gut … your seat of your soul … will never steer you wrong.
I like many of you have been raised in a society that dictates how you should be, dress, act, do. We live in a society that says you are a good person if you do this or that or if you work this job and live in that neighborhood who graduated with this degree then you are a good person. The more I tried to conform to what society dictates to me, the more I became ill and unfulfilled which almost took my life.
However, my guardian angels and spirit team had different plans for me. So over the years, I learned to let go of what was and a perception of a life I thought I had. I slowly surrendered to Spirit over a period of 10+ years letting the Universe guide me. I spent years healing from my traumas learning to nurture the child within and partner with soul. I am like a masterpiece painting that is still in progress.
So back to what this year has taught me …
In order to get from one place to another, you must build a solid foundation. Right now, I feel that I want to keep insuring the foundation I rebuilt this year is strong enough and sturdy after all I went through in my personal life for a grand 2016. However, thanks to the partnership with the divine and my soul, I receive daily confirmations that I am on the right track.
Laura’s favorite vintage store with
lots of Buddha love.
This has been a big year for manifesting. There is the old saying “Be careful what you wish for, because you just might actually get it”.
For some using tools of faith, trust, and positivity, the manifesting yielded many wonderful things and confirmations.
For others who are still stuck in worry, fear, and anxiety, unfortunately, here the manifesting was of more fear, worry, and anxiety. It was almost like you were looking for the gotcha, so the Universe gave it to you.
For me, I have suffered lots of trauma in my personal life and have been in both of those places this year. It is something I have come to terms with over the years, because my soul chose this path for me to learn something that will help my soul ascend.
So, for those stuck in fear or worry mode, I hear you. I can not tell you the days and nights I have spent crying, begging, and pleading for things to change and for help on my faith which dwindled not recognizing the connection between what I was trying to move forward from and my fears actually manifesting over and over.
Laura’s training and certification in
Jikiden Reiki with Arjava Petter
So, we learned another lesson for 2015 which came to a climax of purging and letting go. Many of us, we experienced waves of physical and emotional purges this year. Some were so strong it made us very sick. Resistance to change has proven to be futile for many who chose the path of ego. What I learned was to go with the ebbs and flows of the Universe instead of letting ego rule trying to control things that were not in my capacity to control.
This also means, I learned to listen with the body more, and recognizing that if I was having a bout of exhaustion or emotions, and the medical teams are not able to figure out the cause, then I was experiencing a purge. Some purges did require surgery. But learning the spiritual connection and healing, I was able to minimize recovery time and with no pain medications.
Unfortunately, we are also experiencing a wave of great transitions. For some these transitions were timely for their soul growth. It was just their time to ascend and no other reason. For some (not all) such as those faced with addictions, my theory is this. I believe especially our youth, were born with such a high frequency and sensitivity that their human self was not able to adjust. It was just too difficult. For others, especially healers forget to self nurture and self care. Martyrdom has proven to lead to a path of dis-ease.
What I have also seen this year in regards to letting go are the links to karmic cords. I have seen this pattern all year, but especially gaining momentum later this year. Many of us have been called to not only heal and let go things in this lifetime, but in previous lifetimes. I have witnessed one person in particular heal at least three lifetimes this year alone and the year is not over yet.
Laura finds her best place to find
peace and meditate is connecting
You have to remember all this letting go is about creating a platform for the new. This brings me to the next lesson – a realization of what truly matters.
Does it matter for instance, that you’re driving a 10 year old car and your neighbor is driving a brand new Mercedes? At the end of the day, it does not matter.
I use to drive an Audi, and I even brought a brand new minivan. Today, I could care less. I do not want the computer generated car that could crash like my computer. I do not want the high insurance bill or higher taxes associated with it either. The car is just one analogy, and I am not saying there is not a need to balance out material with the spiritual either.
How would you live your life, if you did work so hard to pay for THINGS that really and truly do not matter at the end of the day?
No better sounds to meditate to
and connect to soul and spirit than
sitting on the quiet beach with the
crashing waves and smells of the ocean
Once we have separated our ego self from our soulful self, we began the next lesson – the rediscovery of self. For some of us, we had some very painful lessons and purges. Some of us lost our families and everything that was material literally. At the time, this may have felt or may still feel quite devastating, but when we can shift our perspective and learn to communicate with our higher self, we can see the world from a whole new perspective. We can not add new experiences if our hands are full with the old. Sometimes, if we are quite resistant to change, the Universe forces a hand.
Let’s look at cleaning and/or organizing a home. If you are someone like me, you can feel quite overwhelmed easily when there is chaos and disorganization. You may have feelings like you have no idea where to begin and thus leading to procrastination and clutter. For those of us who have experienced this, how would it feel if you had someone else come in and organize and clean for you? You may have moments of resistance to “things”, but focus on the end result and how that would feel. Can you feel the ahhhhhhhhhhh?
A young male buck Laura saw this
fall with a subsequent message
If your mind, body, and soul are your home, and the Universe cleaned up for you, then why do we see it as a traumatic experience? This is just a question and there is no wrong answer to this one. It is just food for thought and a shift of perspective is all. As human beings, we develop attachments to people, places and things.
Trauma can be a big road block. I have had my share of trying to personally overcome my blocks as a result of past traumas. There was a moment in my life where I sought help and protections from the very agencies that were designed to help people like me many many years ago where I felt betrayed and left out in the cold.
If I could not trust people, our government, our faith based organizations, our nonprofit agencies to help us, then who do we trust?
When we can learn to detach from some of this “stuff”, it becomes easier to focus on what really matters, which leads me to the next lesson this year – for partnership with soul. When I could trust no one, I then began learning to trust the divine, communicate with the divine more efficiently and effectively, and built a stronger relationship with my soul.
The heart Laura saw on
So, my spirit team and I designed a communication tool where they let me know through signs and messages through nature to remind me I am on the right path and to keep moving forward.
I have received many signs from hearts to birds to deer and other shapes in the sky. If you scroll through this blog you will see all the writings about my journey this year alone.
The heart as seen here was one of three given to me on Thanksgiving day as I stepped outside for a moment to walk my dog before people arrived at my home. This heart was at the bottom of my steps to my front door and it was one of three hearts seen that day. The other 2 were seen during the bonfire I attended that evening where we gathered a group for some drumming giving thanks to the town, the people, mother earth, the moon, and spirit.
It was a sure message that we are never alone. Our loved ones in spirit and our spirit team is always with us. It is just a matter of whether or not we are listening.
Some of the turkeys Laura has
had the privilege of watching and
learning from in 2015
The flock of 5 turkeys and many more, as seen here, have been frequent guests this year too. I have watched them grow up from hatchlings to young adults. They have served as a great reminder of where I’m going and to let go of fear. Even though I KNOW to trust in the divine, my soul, and my spirit team, my ego still likes to throw out temptations to fear and all that I am letting go.
Recently, they gave me a blessing knowing it’s safe to trust and tools to know difference. Nature is such a beautiful aid in our path if we just slow down a moment and learn to reconnect again.
I recently watched one of the juvenile turkeys go round and round and round this mirror outside my home for over 45 minutes. I chuckled at the behavior as the other four were eating the fallen bird seed from the feeder wondering what the message he was trying to make and then I heard it from Spirit.
The jouvenile that captured
Laura’s attention. for 45 min
So many of us are resisting the path of soul. I can relate to the message from the turkey, but I am now further in my path partnering with soul. I can assure you it may seem scary because of what society dictates to us on how to be, but it is so worth it. One day I will share my full story with you in hopes to help someone else along their path.
To those who are having a difficult time being grateful or seeing the light, please hold on and have faith. Trust that your soul has your back if nothing else.
The crystalized light is extraordinary
Hope you see it.
I see your light. Believe it.
May it shine brightly and shatter the looming darkness around you.
May your light give you clarity.
May your light give you strength.
2016 is going to be a magnificent year. It is all about how you choose to perceive your world and where you are currently at in your spiritual development partnering with soul and living a more soulful path.
It is crucial more than ever to develop a partnership with your soul – the ultimate love affair that lasts for an eternity. Your soul is your guide and can help you attune and navigate the ever changing waves of energy.
An important message my spirit team
shared with me and I shared with you
We are all one. We are all being called to unite as one for the betterment of all life. We can change the world and make it a better place, but it all starts with finding peace within and to stop the raging wars that reside within self.
Thank you all for your love, support, and for being a part of my spiritual journey.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
It’s a new day. We can make today what we choose it to be. So why not choose to have a great day.
“Today is Friday. As we move throughout the day, don’t forget to be kind to yourself. Energies have been quite intense lately. There’s been a lot of drastic and some very hard energetic shifts that has affected Mother Earth and everything in us and around us. We hear your cries. We hear your pleas. We are letting you know we are here to help. All you have to do is ask. Be open to receive. Then listen and be patient as we help you work through the sit…uation. In the meantime, it is important to be mindful of your internal dialog. So many say such dreadful things to self you would never say to another. Please stop. Be gentle and kind with yourself as we help you and guide you through these waves of change.”
A gift from spirit sent to you with light and love,
Have you been feeling all the effects astrological weather and cosmic storms? How about what many of us are labeling the “ascension flu”? What about any energetic pulls? Do things seem to be spiraling out of control or do they seem to be balancing themselves out? Are your fears, insecurities, anxieties or the like heightened and not sure why? How is your sleep?
Many of us sensitive folk have been experiencing everything from headaches, sore throats, buzzing in the ears, body aches especially in the back area, sleep disturbances, chronic fatigue etc. This is not to mention the increase in anxiety, insecurities, fears, old traumas, old PTSD symptoms that you may thought have gone away. If you can relate to any of these, you are not alone. Like what I wrote in my March post, much of the energies lately are about “Lessons During The Bipolar Ping Pong Match of Emotions to Paradoxical Extremes.
It may feel like a little of Pandora’s Box has been opened… the feeling of everything caving in around you or everything finally blossoming … the yin and yang … the feeling of everything ending or everything beginning … feeling of endless possibilities or endless perils … rebirth, renewal and regeneration or death, endings and regeneration … energy surges or energy purges.
So be extra mindful of the energetic ripples you are sending out to the Universe and the ripples that are being reflected back at you. Whether good or bad, the chaotic energies right now could be exaggerating some things in your life to bring attention to unfinished business.
It is important to remember as we journey to the next phase of our life, remember what shifts you are wanting to create. This is a journey is to be taken inward right now. All the answers you seek lie within.
Things to keep in mind while you experience these shifts
Drink lots of water to keep your body hydrated and flushed.
Be mindful of your energy … actions and reactions
Get plenty of sleep. Sleep does a body good.
Stay balanced and grounded. This means you may need to step up your spiritual protections and practices such as prayer and meditation.
Journal your experiences. I am a big fan of journaling your experiences as it helps you to see what you may not have before.
Watch the ego as the ego will want to pull you back into the place you want to leave behind you and will prey upon your fears and anxieties.
Practice the art of forgiveness and start with the self. It is hard to forgive others if we first do not forgive ourselves.
Allow yourself to grieve over anything that is still unresolved. It is time to give yourself permission and stop resisting.
Learn to laugh and dance more. This raises the vibration and creates more positive changes not to mention the physiological energetic and chemical shifts within the body.
Finally, let go and trust that the Universe has your back. This is a huge test of faith.
The journey we are now faced with has a lot to do with faith. You are asked to trust and take a step into the unknown … to walk off that cliff not knowing if you will fall or walking on the next step. … to leap off that branch not knowing what to do or trusting you have the instincts to know how to fly. However, you are also being reminded to be careful of the choices you do make. Above all, remember … it is always darkest before dawn. The light always returns.
So for today, the Universe is beckoning you to do some introspection and to go deep within the shadows of the self to find the answers you seek. This is a message I have been stating all week with daily #CardOfTheDay draws which can be found on Pinterest or on my Facebook Page . Also, be kind and gentle to yourself. This is necessary if you wish to yield the results you seek.
I think Yoga says it well …
We are being given an opportunity to change our life and fully align with the Universe as long as we let go of all of the things holding us back. Biggest challenge for many of us is about learning to let go and let God knowing we are in good hands. Hence, get out of our own way.
You have a choice here. We are all given free will. The Universe has been pounding on us to get us to see, but at the end of the day, we choose our fate. What do you choose?
