I Appreciate You

It has been a rough few weeks for so many people especially for those bombarded with the recent snow storms, roof collapses, etc in New England. This is a picture I took a couple days ago after the 5th major snow storm in New England in the last month. I was in awe of the beauty of the sun setting against the cool snow. For myself, I am trying to appreciate the small things and count my blessings through all this chaos.

So today I wanted to let you know I appreciate you and I am grateful for you. You are special!

Have a blessed day.

With lots of love and appreciation,

I love when Spirit sends us signs or messages

Do you see it? Do you see the heart?

I love when Spirit sends us signs or messages.

I took this picture last week right after the last snow storm. These crows were really trying to get my attention.

So I stopped.

Watched.

Pondered.

Wondered what they were eating as well as what they were trying to tell me.

The one to the left hopped and flew over to the branch over to the left … then back again and finally flew off over me. The crow to the right hopped over to the branch to the left before flying away as well…. At the time I did not quite fully understand the message until last night as I casually scrolled through my photos and saw the heart in the tree limb to the left which completed the message for me … The very limb both crows hopped and squawked over to. Sometimes we don’t always see or hear the messages Spirit sends us until the time is right.

The class “Communication in Nature; Attaining Messages From Spirit Through Nature and Numbers” is a great class to learn how to interpret the signs we get. There are a couple openings left for this evening’s class in Hingham, MA.

With lots of love and appreciation,

After a Storm Rises Lessons Of Renewal

First Published: November 1, 2014

Every one of us experiences a storm.  No one is immune.

I wrote this a while back called “Reflections” and wanted to share with you the light at the end of every storm.

It is all about how we ride these storms which will determine how we emerge.  Please share this message as it is designed to give hope and healing to all who need it.

Have a blessed day.

REFLECTIONS 

Funny how life works … sitting here at Blue Hills thinking about how hard things have been over the last 10yrs for me, my family and many other wonderful people I know and all the beautiful surprises that are beginning to emerge. I am sharing this not to get sympathy, but to show that no matter how dire life can seem, anything can change in a moment if we have faith.

I was VERY successful in many past endeavours which in light of recent exciting events have been getting much reflection lately. However, some of my greatest challenges surfaced over the passed 4yrs w a brutal narcissistic abusive ex who has been relentless in attempts to destroy my life at all costs … and at a calculatable financial loss of over $600k. I can not control what he chooses to do. However, I can choose my reactions to his grievous and malicious actions.

Through these very difficult life lessons with a karmic past, I was forced to close a very successful health and wellness business and later laid off from teaching at a wonderful college with some of the most amazing people I have ever met. I have never had so many obstacles in life and career as I have since 2006 all as a result of NOT listening to my gut and marrying the wrong person. At times, losing faith that things would turn around.

The pendulum has swung. The Phoenix has risen. And karma is quite angry. As the saying goes, every dog gets their day. I am still waiting, but I grow more hopeful every day.

Of coarse I had to deal with these aweful things, and struggled many times trying to find ways to not let things out of my control, control my life and destroy all the successful potentials I had to offer life. I went back to my roots. Accepted certain gifts I have … many I am still working on accepting my abilities and talents. … Opened myself to ALL opportunities before me regardless of restrictions … confronted and overcame many fears (still working on many) . .. and stayed connected to my spirituality. .. The gutters have been cleaned, scrubbed, and ready for the water to flow freely once again through the channels of success in the spring.

I am grateful for all the blessings and surprised opportunities that have been rising over the passed few months. Many of these including celebrity events, charity events, volunteer movie set opportunities. However, the greatest opportunity was having the courage to come out of the closet regarding my psychic mediumship abilities which have been utilized in the past to some degree to help me in my work in health care with analysis, treatment, and patient care as well as my teaching style in the college, helping other victims of abuse to heal, my church, my spirituality and elsewhere.

I am even MOST grateful for those individuals who have entered into my life during the darkest of my days. Yet became my friend, supported me, and loved me unconditionally without judgement. You all know who you are. I am grateful. All the wonderful transformations happening in my life now, I owe to you. I love you all and hopes I can be there for each and every one of you as you have for me. I have never felt more like me again as I have over the past few months.

Thank you all and thank you spirit for finally placing my life back on track.

With lots of love and appreciation,

Laura

The Ripple Effect and Spirituality

By: Laura from Healing With Spirit 9/29/12  (From a lecture given at the First Spiritualist Church of RI)

How many of you liked to skip stones when you are a kid? How many of you still like to skip stones? How many still actually do it?

We are all here for a reason today in this wonderful church. But have you actually stopped to think what brought you here? Have you actually stopped to think about what is spirituality and what it means to you?

Spirituality is a belief that focuses on one’s understanding of natural law enabling the person to discover his/her inner path of being and it is an integral aspect of many religious experiences such as Spiritualism.

Wikipedia definition:  “Spirituality in this context may be a matter of nurturing thoughts, emotions, words, and actions that are in harmony with the belief that everything in the universe is mutually dependent; this stance has much in common with some versions of Buddhist spirituality. A modern definition is as follows: Spirituality exists wherever we struggle with the issues of how our lives fit into the greater scheme of things. This is true when our questions never give way to specific answers or give rise to specific practices such as prayer and meditation. We encounter spiritual issues every time we wonder where the universe comes from, why we are here, or what happens when we die. We also become spiritual when we become moved by values such as beauty, love, or creativity that seem to reveal a meaning or power beyond our visible world. An idea or practice is ‘spiritual’ when it reveals our personal desire to establish a felt-relationship with the deepest meanings of powers governing life.”

In Spiritualism, there is a fundamental belief in the continuation of life after the change called death as well as the personal responsibility for life’s circumstances.

With that said, in order to understand spirituality or spiritualism, you must first understand the human being and the ripple effects we create.

As human beings, we are energy in a physical body that creates energetic vibrations.

What allows your heart to pump blood throughout your body? Do you honestly know?

Think about it before you read on….

What actually triggers your heart to contract that enables it to pump blood throughout the human body to nourish every tissue and cell? Have you figured it out yet?

If not, that is ok. I will explain. Whether you call it God’s gift … the Universe’s Gift …Nature’s mastery…. you have two mini self generating electrical power plants in your heart called the SA node and AV node, otherwise known as the sinoatrial node and the atrial node. They self generate electrical impulses that stimulate the heart the contract and pump the blood throughout the human body. Now think about that. How amazing is that? You have a perfect natural machine like the engine in your car filtering and pumping the nutrient your body needs to stay alive. Have you ever wondered why we need two electrical paddles to stimulate the heart while jump starting the heart?

Everything we do, feel, see, hear, touch, happens due to an electrical impulse that triggered and sent to the brain for the interpretation of sight, sound, touch, etc.

When we understand the fundamental basis of our beings as energy and a one electrical conduction system, we can attune ourselves to be in vibrational alignment with the universe.
Remember I started off asking you about whether or not you like to skip stones? I am going to now explain why I asked that question.

 The Pond Analogy

Think dropping a pebble into the serene glasslike pond. What happens to the pebble? … It creates ripples.

Now what if your friend next to you drops a pebble into that same pond? It also creates a ripple.

What happens to your ripple? To their ripple? They eventually collide.

And depending on whose pebble that was dropped into the pond was larger will determine the magnitude and impact of the collision and whose ripple creates a greater effect. The vibrational alignment, just like sound can alter the tranquility of the water.

If our mind and body are as clear and smooth like glass on a lake, be careful what you toss in. Just like a pebble being tossed, you have the ability to create a small symmetrically balanced ripple effect with little disturbance to the overall lake. As it travels it magnifies in size the farther away it is from the original source but does so in a smooth fashion.

Now if you toss a boulder, the ripple can create what? An unbalanced volatile rocky big ripples in the lake that can take a much longer time for the lake to recover and restore itself to that quiet serene glass like appearance. So now these volatile ripples also magnify as it travels outward as well.

I challenge you to an experiment. Print this article out and keep with you when you do the experiment. Go out and toss the pebble into a lake. Watch what happens. Then toss a boulder into the lake and watch what happens. Then toss two pebbles similar in size and watch what happens. I encourage you to take notes on this experiment as to what you observe when you do this. I would be honored if you choose to write in the comments below your results and what you witnessed and what was revealed to you that you learned about yourself.

Just like the pebble or boulder, what you sent outward, goes out like ripples in the water and magnifies as it travels.

Your attitude – Creates ripples

Your body language – Creates ripples

Your actions and reactions – creates ripples

Your words – creates ripples

Your thoughts – Creates ripples

Your feelings – creates ripples

So be careful what ripples you allow in and be careful what ripples you put out or send out.

Are your ripples positive or negative?

Negative ripples can give you a feeling like your finger is stuck in an electrical outlet … a sense of being fried and exhausted that you feel you really cannot explain or do not know how to explain.

Positive ripples have more of a feeling of being in vibrational alignment with yourself and the universe … Like a free flowing balanced energy source.

If you are not in vibrational alignment, begin by building a sense of awareness.

What do I mean by that?

To build a sense of awareness, you need to become intimately aware of your inner self and your surroundings using all of your senses.

Understand you cannot change what you can not acknowledge so you must begin here.

When you begin to master the sense of awareness, you choose the vibrations you are sending out. By keeping your vibrations high, you begin to start to enjoy life and begin to understand that it is possible to achieve your goals that you have been struggling so hard to accomplish. You start to create a surge of positive energy affecting everything around you.

For everything to change in your life, it starts with the self. Just as in spiritualism, you must take responsibility for your own life. It is a matter of yin and yang and the natural laws.

If your vibrations are low or you are exhibiting negative ripples, an avalanche affect can occur causing you to tumble into lower forms of consciousness and inferior ways of thinking. In many cases, you may be subconsciously self-sabotaging everything good you strive in your life without even realizing you are doing it. Just stop and think about that for a moment and digest what that really means.

So if your life is filled with fear, anger, and negativity and you perpetually live in that environment, this will eventually lead to dis-ease of all areas in your mind, body, and spirit. Your life will continue to spiral down unless you make a conscious decision right here … right now to change. The past is the past and can breed depression. The future has not happened yet and can breed anxiety and stress. All you have is the now so just be happy.

If your life is surrounded by lower vibrations, meaning your environment, you are allowing yourself to have these negative lower vibrational ripples impact and collide with your energetic core and your life. As a result, you will eventually cease to see yourself in a self loving, self nurturing, and balanced way. Someone once told me that if you are told you “no good” for so long and it is drilled into you, you start to believe it. In abuse, they call that “gaslighting”.

By mastering the art of awareness, you can self-correct your patterns of thinking and behaviors. Hence changing the kind of ripple effect you are sending out and receiving.

As we think of ourselves and others, we send out vibrational ripples in frequencies. We must nurture our inner child with self love, appreciation and gratitude. By doing so, the ripples we create, send out are of… love, appreciation and gratitude.

Spirit is always around us, and with spirit’s guidance, you have the ability to create endless ripples with a positive impact in your life and the lives of others. The choice is yours to make.

So I will leave you with a few thoughts and questions to ponder.

What does spiritualism mean to you and how does spirituality fit in your life?

What ripples are you creating right now … during this very moment?

What thought just passed through your head? Were your thoughts loving, compassionate, nurturing, healing and positive vibrationally aligned? … Or not?

Begin with building a sense of awareness. Choose a path for a self discovery of your inner being and a journey to enlightenment. Connect with spirit for guidance and help along the journey. Keep your life filled with love and compassion. And remember the pebble in the pond and the impacts it creates.

“I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.” ― Mother Teresa

How are you going to change the kind of ripples you are allowing to impact you as well as change the kind of ripples you send out?

With lots of love and appreciation,

A Period Of Transformation and Transiton

Posted September 29, 2014

How quickly did the summer go?

This past summer was fun, exciting, yet challenging. It was quite polarizing. It gave us a lot to work on. Gave us challenges and if you did your work, it revealed a lot to us. We are all in a process of transformation. How are you embracing it?

On of the themes that seemed to keep emerging was about faith especially in the areas surrounding fear and love. Many of the reiki sessions, holistic health sessions, and readings seemed to have revealed the common themes. Many of us had and may still be having our faith challenged. However, in order to have love, you can not have fear. Fear and love can not coexist.

The Universe is reminding us to always have faith especially during times of great distress, because the minute you lose faith is the time you have lost the miracle you have been waiting for. Always have faith because with faith, anything is possible.

In my last newsletter, I talked about being called to open your heart to the ocean of dreams … to step outside the box and live a little. To enjoy living as it is a matter of perspective. Did you?

This is a time to set your spirit free and soar to new heights. There is nothing to fear but fear itself. So let the magic begin. Time to let go of control a bit. You just might surprise yourself by discovering things about yourself or others you may not have seen through different eyes. So, be in your power.

We are all in a period of transformation and transition. Embrace it. A lot of the readings over the past month or so as well as direct messages from Spirit have brought new meaning to “the world is your oyster”. It is time to light your fire and get moving. Don’t forget to have fun in the process. Have a blessed day!

The Universe Has been answering your calls …

 

#MessageFromSpirit:

“The Universe is filling your plate with endless possibilities and preparing you for some decisions to make. These decisions you must make on your own. The Universe has been answering your calls, and bringing things to you. However, you have free will. Time to cipher through the choices laid before you and trust in the divine.”

Have a blessed day –

Learning to Ride the Storm

After every great storm, the Sun returns to shine. After every great storm comes the rainbow. After every big storm and rough surf comes fertile soil. With every big storm comes nature’s pruning of unnecessary branches and debris.

After every big storm comes green grasses. After every big storm comes beautiful big flowers. After every big storm comes the birds, the animals, and the emergence of life awakens.

The cycles in our life are no different than the cycles of nature. When we experience stormy weather things seemed unclear, cloudy, and at times destructive. It is during those times, we sometimes are unable to see the Sun behind the clouds or the rainbow in the sky or the new sprouts of plants preparing to emerge from the soil.

And as human beings we experience similar stormy weather such as rip tides, floods, hurricanes and devastation. However, it is during those times just like in nature, that we are clearing out the old, the sick, and the energies that is clogging up our abilities for the new to emerge into our life.

During this mercury retrograde, learn to enjoy the storm. Sit back and enjoy the ride. For once, it is time to get out of your own way and let the Universe lead the way to your higher calling.

With lots of love and appreciation,

Laura

Trust in Your Path

“Stay grounded. Trust in your path. The past is past and you are beginning a new journey. Trust that you are divinely supported and you are ready to take this leap. We have been leaving signs to reassure you that you are on the right path.
 
Believe them to be true and have faith like you’ve never had it before. Don’t question or doubt your direction. A new chapter in your life is is getting ready to emerge.
 
Trust.
 
Allow us to help you find and implement the solutions to close the old. Just be willing to surrender and listen to the guidance given to you from the Universe.
 
You are embarking on a new adventure. Be ready to explore. You are now being guided. Trust on where you are going.”

As always, I would love to hear about your experiences. Please leave your feedback as it helps me help you. Have a blessed day.
