Reflections as We Close Out 2015 – 5 Lessons 2015 Taught Me

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.

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.

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
with nature.
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?

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
Thanksgiving Day

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

#messagefromspirit: “Face your shadow self so your true self may emerge.

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.

I appreciate you.
Namaste,

Your Soul Is Trying To Awaken. Are You Listening To The Signs?

Wow what a September it has been. Talk about a roller coaster ride. Our soul has been tugging on us to wake up. Have you been feeling this?

I have been noticing for some there have been major breakthroughs and a sigh of relief. 

For others, the challenges just seem to be piling on.

If you are like me and have been talking to others in the Spiritual community or even in healthcare especially psychotherapy, the synchronicities have been amplified like we have never seen before in this lifetime.

There are common themes I have been noticing.

  • We are not alone. We are all one and connected energetically as one. Many of us already knew this, but it seems to be really drilled home.
  • Many people are reporting similar chaotic experiences occurring at the same time.
  • Those who are experiencing challenges especially involving a parent/child relationship, have been greatly tested.
  • Those who are resistant … deliberately, not deliberately or even subconsciously … to the current cosmic shifts and calls from the soul are experiencing heightened health issues such as insomnia, anxiety, panic, heart issues, digestive issues, moodiness and more.
For those feeling frustrated, anxious, or having sleep difficulties etc … There are a couple of things that could be happening.

Here are some tips to help you sort out.

  1. Ask yourself what is it that you are still resistant to change? If you are resisting what your soul is beckoning from you why? Let go and trust your soul has got your back.
  2. Your physical body may be purging, recalibrating energetically, downloading, or if you are a sensitive or empath, you just might be plain ol feeling the effects of all the cosmic shifts from mercury retrograde to the full moon lunar eclipse on September 27, 2015 to the solar flares etc

We are being called to align with soul. For those who have been following me, have been hearing me say “Trust, your soul has got your back” for quite some time now. And our soul and Spirit have been bombarding us with signs to help us along the way.

Have been experiencing such phenomena?

Here is my experience just the past few weeks and I am amazed at Spirit every time. We are always receiving messages from heaven. It’s just whether or not we choose to see the signs from our soul, our loved ones, guides, and angels.

Repeating Signs?

For me personally, I have been hit with lots of “signs” from Spirit and soul.

Every day it seems like something whether through repeating numbers or other signs such as:

  • Walking to the car, home, in nature, or the like and a feather is somehow beneath my feet. This happening once? Ok, but happening sometimes as much as ten times in one day? That is something one can not ignore. I must preface to say that if you are going and deliberately seeking to find signs, you may not get them. In every one of my experiences, the signs have fallen upon me without seeking like a detective. They just happened.
  • Certain wildlife interactions as if they have something to say. These are not the normal run ins, but ones that either suddenly repeat occurrences, are profound in how these interactions occurred, and usually occur in themes such as you are upset at something, or worried about something, having relationship difficulties, unsure of where you are going in life etc.
  • Signs through the elements – Spirit can alter the elements such as water in the clouds or fire to reveal what they want you to know. I have been receiving signs for years, but the last 30 days have been extraordinary.
  • Signs such as hearts or pennies. Again, if like me and they are happening numerous times in one day, then you need to stop and really pay attention and listen.

 

Signs? Everywhere there are signs?

Here are some signs I have been guided to share with you that I have personally experienced over the last 30 days.

On this day, I was walking to my car and just happened to look up at the clouds to see several signs. These cloud pictures were taken on the same day at the same location.

It was like a spirit mural of messages.

“The Angel”

The swooping heart downward was the first that caught my eye yet the last in the messages.

Then when I glance over I saw the Angel with a cardinal beneath her holding a ball of white light. Can you see the image in the picture to the right?

The feelings of peace instantly filled me up as I was having a challenging week. These are the words not spoken but clearly understood, and grateful.

A smile instantly over came me and my worries instantly dissipated that day.

“The Spirit Messenger Bird”

However, it was not until I decided to clean out my photos a few days later that some very striking images appeared that I did not see before.

There are two that I am posting here.
The first photograph is to the left … The Spirit Messenger Bird. Every time I look at this photo, I just want to go WOW.

I am in complete awe at the size of this image and the clarity of the details. The photo can not give you the sense of scale, size, or emotion as it was quite large in the sky.

I’m almost speechless. When I saw this bird in the clouds, it did bring me a tear of joy.

Things are changing my friends.



Keep the faith.
Stay positive.
Never lose hope.

 

“The Medieval Horse Rising From The Flames”

The second image I took several weeks ago. Do you see the image?   This particular image was not revealed to me until few weeks after it was taken.

I was sitting at around this fire pit while on Cape Cod and felt a spiritual presence around with a very transformative message for someone who was with me that evening. I was also guided to snap a few pics.

The message I channeled that was helpful and healing to that person and something  this person needed to hear to heal karmic ties with multiple past lives.

I am also grateful for when Spirit materializes or gives us signs such as this to confirm those messages and prove the continuity of life.

This message was both for me and the other party. The image was to validate the experience we both shared in healing the past and knowing we are divinely protected at all times.

This month’s energies have been quite challenging to say the least, but I am still smiling. I’m still grateful. I’m still filled with peace in my heart. When we come from a place of gratitude instead of fear, the challenges we are faced are met with clearer and swifter solutions.

We are shedding off the old to reveal the new.

We are in this together. Together we can choose to enjoy this ride called life. It is important to try to embrace these energies with welcome arms even in times of adversity. Let go resistance, and trust your soul has got your back.

We are all going through great transformations.

It is time to shed the old to allow the new. We are emerging into the beautiful butterflies from the dark cocoons. Embrace the change

What signs from heaven have you been getting? I’d love to hear.

With love and light,
