Learn About “MY WHY” I Launched on Patreon

Let’s join forces AND BREAK The CYCLE of the Perpetuation of Unresolved Unhealed Trauma TOGETHER.

To be honest ….

I am a bit Nervous.

Excited.

Anxious.

AND that is all ok.

I am putting the trust and faith in this journey and allowing it to unfold as it needs to.


Have you ever heard of Patreon before?

Here is the dish … It is a wonderful subscription service for content creators and in my case content creators with a social justice or social impact mission in mind.

What is unique about this platform, it lets people financially support and reward content creators — such as podcasters, writers, and YouTubers — through a monthly subscription.

Creators can set up multiple membership tiers with various rewards so each subscriber can choose the amount of money they feel most comfortable giving to a project and in my case – healing the perpetuation of unhealed unresolved trauma that is plaguing our society.


So, please check out my “My WHY” Patreon post, and if the message resonates, please consider
  • commenting on the original post
  • sharing with loved ones or those in your community who identify with my mission.
  • joining to support my social justice impact goals
  • or joining for the great benefits such as FREE 1:1, FREE events, and up to 40% off classes offered.

Would LOVE your thoughts AND …

I am new to learning how all this works and working on building a team to make my dreams and missions come to light so I can show up more effectively and more impactful for YOU.

Me doing THIS work is and always has been about BE-ing of greater service to the community & our Mother Earth.

Like everyone else, I am learning HOW to show up BETTER to meet that soul journey mission.

If you decide to become a patron on Patreon, you become active participants in the work I am doing while supporting a cause we all love and NEED especially during these challenging times where the trauma epidemic is running wild like an uncontrolled unchecked avalanche or a volcano that is about to explode.

An Introduction To The Power of the Word, The Power of the Pause, & The Power of Processing


If we look at the state of our society in 2020 in the United States of America, we might question, “how did we get here?”.

After the Spanish flu in 1918, Rockefeller discovered that humans and disease could be traded as a commodity on Wall Street.  As a result of this colonized model, Americans in general  are now suffering unprecedented increasing rates of

  • uncontrolled stress
  • suicides
  • domestic violence
  • anxiety
  • depression
  • chronic illness
  • autoimmune disease
  • trauma related illnesses

What I Have Witnessed In 2020

Since March 2020 when COVID shut our country down. I began offering extra support, spiritual medicine and meditation to the community 3x a week in our FB group. I am witnessing A LOT.

I have also launched polls via social media, worked with clients individually while elsewhere witnessed very heightened and triggered responses plagued with assumptions, toxic tongue, and weakening immune systems.

So what do we do about this?

As an empath, intuitive, seer, truth finder, healer, medicine woman, educator and trauma specialist in me, I began to witness some collective patterns.

Could there be a solution?

In this video, I share

  • my 15 year journey on how I turned my PTSD into a super power
  • the offering
  • why these mini classes are so important to the NOW in the grand scheme of things.
  • why take these classes

I share some very vulnerable things in this video about my journey not for sympathy but to let you know I GET IT and I have got skills to help you too.

I share with you my HOW

Culturally, we have turned what could be powerful negative emotions into an addictive toxic positivity and spiritual bypassing. We have become a culture of avoidance, addiction, distraction as a form of oppression, while blinded on seeing a way out and a path to wholeness.

Words have energy do they not?

Word have spiritual power that affect our physiology more than we really know or understand from a scientific standpoint.

If what we say can affect us, then HOW we say it affects us even more.

That is what makes gaslighting so effective to create harm, but why haven’t we mastered the power of the word to empower us? Learn what is missing and how to harness this simple power to breakthrough imaginary walls and empower our very BEing.

We will use some very simple Japanese concepts rooted in Shinto teachings. There is a reason why Japan did NOT have a written language until Buddhist was imported in 4th century.

Words can heal or words can harm!

You may know this, but is your reality matching what you think you know?

The Power of the Pause

This is the most widely known concept, but the most misunderstood.

Shift the power of the word and shift the energy that is driving it. Bring clarity into the problem and identify HOW you can move towards an effective solution.

Learn what is missing and how to harness this simple power. THIS is the power that Ruth Bader Ginsburg mastered that enabled her to win five our of six supreme court cases.

Are you ready to learn the secrets of what you may be missing in this super power?

The Power of the Processing

Learn the million dollar question when told to just “let it go”. In this class, learn HOW to let go and move on.

This is a step I witness most folks frequently wanting to avoid, escape from, or numb ourselves from.  Learn why this is a crucial step that is needed and why processing our junk effectively matters.

It is important to undue the toxic oppressive cultural conditioning of the way we have been taught to misuse these powers in ways such as.

  • Words -> abuse, shame, greed
  • Pause -> silence, lack of, control, enslavement
  • Processing -> Getting triggered & reacting without pausing without understanding the power of the word or energy behind it and we become fuel to the raging fire instead of the sacred waters.

By facing this shadow aspects of these power,  we can harness these powers effectively and create the shifts we need with more joy in our hearts.

Are you ready to own your power?

Are you ready to take the next step to learn HOW?

coming soon

I have spent the last 15 years looking to heal the broken me searching for the right seasoned rooted teachers that span the globe. THIS is important because I have been witnessing another phenomenon of spiritual addictions over the years as a way to avoid doing the work to heal, elevate or create necessary changes in our lives aka spiritual bypassing that is leading to our chronically sick culture.

I have walked this path NOT just talked it.

I have understood that value and power of the undoing, healing, letting go, processing, languaging, pausing, and more. This is personal to me. Maybe this momma bear does not want to see the kind of suffering I am witnessing and wants to share a BETTER WAY of EXISTING.

Are you ready to learn how to harness these powers for empowerment and growth?

I am still in the planning stages of this offering.

Click here to stay in the loop as these classes unfolds and for special offers.  You may also join our Facebook group to also stay in tapped into what is happening with this launch.

I look forward to sharing the wisdom, lessons, and power behind it all and most importantly the HOW through a virtual format to including experientials and meditation.

Many courses share with you the what.

I want to share with you the HOW.

Will you join us?

2020 September New Moon Thinning Veils, Signs, & Processing It All


Wow … this September new moon was a doozy for this empath, Pisces, and intuitive. I thought I would share with you my experience yesterday. How I pause and my processes leading up to this morning. I call it the #cantmakethisshitup story with signs.

The story may be different than yours, but I am curious to know if you’re experiencing anything similar maybe with signs or polarity or processing.

The Morning of Signs Begins

So yesterday I planned on doing a virtual new moon ceremony in our sister Facebook group “Reiki & Spiritual Enrichment With Laura Healing With Spirit”, AND … it never happened.

I started my morning early with a multitude of signs starting with cardinal/finch feather then a juvenile turkey feather and followed by a mourning dove feather all before 7am.

Signs galore on the new moon of 9/17/20

Then around noon time, I took the puppy for a walk to find a $5 bill in the parking lot. Ok signs? feathers? One? Two? Three? Four signs in a few hours? Now I think, something must be up and it is more than just the new moon or is it?

The energies this week with the uncontrolled fires on the west coast mirroring the anger and rage within the hearts of folks in the US had the trauma survivor, empath, and intuitive in me amped up with stuff coming at me from all different directions despite my feet firmly planted on the ground.

When to Pause

The veils have been quite thin since the sun entered its new solar cycle 25 and mars went retrograde. I can feel it. With this new moon hailed by astrologers to be one potentially a productive one, I saw opportunity, desire, and need for space for this new moon ritual, but something was not aligning.

When things are NOT flowing as easily or effortlessly as I had hoped in this process, I see this equally as a sign.

I recognized the power in the pause.

So I stopped.

I paused.

I attempted to get myself in alignment to tap into the new moon as well as all the other crazy energies for vision and clarity and struggled a bit mostly because I wanted to go DEEP to ensure my egoic mind is NOT impeding.

However, there was lots of static creating lots of indecision.

Gracie the 12mo old mix breed pup

When this happens I usually need alone time out in nature to quiet the static and listen to the whispers of the divine. This was ANOTHER sign that I was NOT to go through this process in a LIVE video, but needed to sit and work through this alone.

So I took Gracie (the 12 month old puppy I am fostering & rehabbing.) outside to accomplish 2 things.

1) to attempt more off leash training

2) to get myself grounded, centered and connected to the natural world around me. I know that when I access this, I access one of my so called super powers for the wisdom, clarity, and answers I seek.

Then THIS happened yesterday while outside …

The 5th sign on the new moon on 9/17/20 – Turkey feather.

… the 5th #sign of the day with MORE turkey. This one is an adult. The other from yesterday morning that I posted was juvenile.

Initiating The Processing

So I instantly gravitate to the juvenile Turkey feather & the adult one & think: “Does this mean that mother & daughter will finally be united and the justice scales begin to repair a long overdue injustice?”

“Does this mean that after 13 years, there might be a positive outcome that I had thought at one point was lost in this lifetime?”

As a trauma survivor and as someone who has experienced first hand systemic injustice and oppression, where the systems in place that on the surface were to protect people like myself and my children FAILED miserably.

If I couldn’t trust people nor myself back then, then who or what do I trust do I trust NOW?

This is where I learned the power of the pause where we can access the clarity, wisdom, and spiritual guidance aka the whispers from the soul that go beyond our logical mind that at times may seem incomprehensible.

SO I did what I have been doing for a long time. I stop. Paused and I went up … into spirit, God, the Universe or whatever divinity calls to you.

Beginning early 2009, I began my relationship with the divine in a new way through signs. I recall the experience as if it were yesterday driving and seeing angels in the sky.

That particular story is too long to share, and I will share that experience with you another time. Let’s just say, it changed my whole trajectory

Receiving signs from the divine have taught me so much since then. The first lesson I got from that initial experience was “Stop, pause and listen for they will guide you”. This was the message I heard from that first time seeing my first sign.

A deep healing needed to happen. The kind I was blinded from seeing at the time due to the protective mother hypervigilance of fight/flee/freeze that resulted in complex post traumatic stress disorder or CPTSD. So I improved my skill sets. Addressed and healed the wounds and continue to do still today. I don’t believe we are ever done. We just get better at addressing and healing them is all.

So yesterday was one of those days. I stopped. I paused. I open the gates to the awareness beyond what my eyes can see, my ears can hear, and my body can sense.

Turkey Medicine

Turkey medicine has so much to offer and has been one of those message bearers that has been with me on/off through this journey.

Turkey are most known symbolically associated with abundance and reflect an energy of sharing.

Turkey has been showing up STRONG since right before I found out what happened with my family. I guess time will reveal itself these truths soon enough.

I’ve learned to NOT expect an absolute truth over the years, but more of a process like putting pieces to a larger puzzle together for a different picture than maybe originally thought.

Turkey is sometimes called the earth eagle with rooted connections to our great Mother, inner vision and the 12mo cycles and is one of the most adaptable birds.

It also reminds me of a very powerful PBS documentary I watched a few years ago called “My Life As A Turkey

And finally, some indigenous mythologies talk about how Turkey can fight off evil spirits. Hmmmmm I wonder if this is what I need to listen to. The sitting. Pausing. Allowing. Processing will reveal when it is time what is needed to be known.

This is not something we can force, but align with and allow the flow of the process to commence in a sacred partnership.

Eagle Medicine on 9/18/20 a Master 22 Number in Numerology post new moon

The Eagle & The Master 22 Number

This morning as I woke up writing about this experience, I lost track of time, and was late to our FB LIVE event.

What I discovered was today is a master 22 number in numerology with eagle as the spiritual medicine.

The 22 is one of three master numbers in numerology that is about uniting the spiritual world with the material world in a four year in numerology – a number holding true to its energy as a “work” year balancing the egoic mind with the spirit – in a ninth month on the sixth day.

How Does It All Tie In Together?

ALL SIGNS if read like a sentence that says to continue to build and work on the relationship with spirit side of you. That all those things that have been surfacing for you this year from either a past trauma, generational link, karmic tie, past life experience will be closing this chapter soon.

As the eagle showed us this morning, there are no obstacles, only opportunities. The eagle does not need to fly into the storm. It can fly above the storm.

As we move forward, we need to be in conscious partnership with spirit on equal footing as things continue to amp up.  The veils are thin right now which is giving us a prime opportunity to co-create with the divine.

These so called signs are an indication and invitation from spiritual world to embrace the courage that will help us choose the kind of freedom we are actually seeking.

I get it …. of coarse we do not have time, enough sleep or enough money …. we never will.  If the time is NOT now with the earth literally burning, the waters polluted, nature poisoned by humans, the masses of folks enraged … then when?

Remember turkey is the the earth eagle that helps us stay grounded in the material world reminding us of the abundance that is coming. The eagle can soar the skies while seeing the smallest detail with precision without losing track of the larger picture.

This new moon was a doozy, but with the pause and silencing the mind, I got a clearer direction and validation that the choices made so far were the correct ones.

Questions?

What signs are you seeing on your journey?

Are you able to pause and take it in these new moon energies?

Facing the Shadows & Healing During COVID19


This is an invitation to hope, healing and guidance during some very challenging times of cocooning.

I want to tell you a story that is relative to what is happening all around me with the growing mental health crisis I am witnessing before my eyes. I hope it will shed light for someone who needs it.


The year is 2005. I don’t always have a smile on my face.  Some days are just darn right difficult.

I say bad things about myself. I sabotage my efforts and tell myself that there must be something wrong with me. I say things from …  “who do you think you are? Are you nuts? No one thinks you have anything to offer.”

To things like “You’re tainted. No one will ever love someone like you and who could blame them after what you been through.”

I developed complex post-traumatic stress disorder as well as traumatic brain injury due to several co-occurring factors including … Domestic abuse, domestic violence by proxy, multiple concussions, car accident, rape etc etc.

I went from buying my first house at 19yo to building a successful business in finance to losing it all to point of homelessness due to an abuse from a man whom I was married to for 9yrs but endured 11yrs of court battery w/ over a $300k legal bill. He hoped it would kill me so he could cash in the life insurance policy. I wasn’t going away and I was not giving up fighting for the safety of my children.

I fought back, becoming a fierce advocate for family court reform in custody cases involving domestic violence. I collected 20 credible cases of severe injustice and gross judicial abuse against one judge.

My naivety thought the TRUTH WILL PREVAIL … I was even contacted by a 20/20 reporter about my work. I thought. “Wow. If this happened, I must be onto something.” So, I pushed harder. At one point I had 12 interns helping me.

Well, when one of my interns pushed too hard to access public information about a judge who was PAID by certain groups to help incarcerated abusers gain custody, I suddenly had a target on my back and suddenly thrown into prison shortly there after.

PTSD is a fucked-up thing.

Do you know what was WORSE than that which I endured?

Good people … Every day neighbors, so called friends, etc who did the unthinkable … who judged and shamed me vs the abuser. They turned a blind eye. I am sure if I were someone famous or someone in a position of power, I would have been treated differently.

What I could not understand is WHY “good people” could easily ignore and turn a blind eye to the astounding fact of 58,000 American children being legally trafficked to abusers and pedophiles EVERY year was staggering to me.

It was the mindset that if it wasn’t their kid, who cares.

In the domestic violence world, we call this “bystander abuse”

I was trying to make a difference in this world especially for those without a voice, and I failed. I failed my children and I failed all the US children being abused.

In Dec 2014, I stopped doing that work after the MA Supreme Court ruled in favor of a documented abuser to gain custody for financial reasons ignoring the best interest of the child statute.

There is now in 2020 a PENDING Supreme Court Case in Ma to make a history of domestic/child abuse inadmissible as evidence in a custody case. So the systemic abuse and oppression has NOT stopped.

The harder I fought the injustice, the bigger hole I made for myself. So I changed my focus. I shifted to speaking and healing trauma associated with abuse. I felt my efforts were more useful here.

Why am I airing all this out NOW?

Things are different NOW. OR are they?

YOU DECIDE.

That was then, BEFORE I understood WHY I endured such horrors.

Why it has taken me 15yrs to heal and regain my life again.

Why the very year I was supposed to put the last part to my healing journey and recovery into play … buying a house again. Build my business with 2 locations. Travel internationally AGAIN … This year Ireland & Japan …. All came to a screeching halt thanks to the COVID shutdown.

I am sharing this, because I recognize that many people’s reactions to what is currently happening with COVID19 as to how I was then and  as to what I was faced then.

I see things differently from a different lens.

There’s more to “THIS STORY” than the public is told. I have LIVED this level of institutional gaslighting and abuse before.

I am not sharing this to gain sympathy. I’m inviting you to a view what is happening from a DIFFERENT lens.

PLEASE HEAR ME OUT.

I’m seeing a lot of parallels to my experience in 2005 to now. The difference between then and today?

Then … it was targeted towards victims of abuse/rape on average depending on stats 1:3 with higher numbers in BIPOC* communities.

Today EVERYONE is impacted. 100%

Nature doesn’t discriminate.  Humans do.

This pandemic is full of a LOT that I won’t go into at this time outside that we are NOT being given all the facts. I find the current narrative to be highly problematic with visible gaslighting/abuse perpetrated upon the people. Scientists who challenge this narrative have either been discredited or murdered. Freedoms of speech highly censored as ordered by governments and there have been doctors who have committed suicide. There is something happening here that is MORE VIRULENT than COVID19.

Most Americans do not have any frame of reference to calm their fears about the sudden life changes and about dying from THIS infectious virus. Most are not aware of the annual normal deaths associated with cancer, flu, overdoses, nor car accidents. This has created a shock.

I want to focus on the growing contagion of trauma and mental health crisis that is happening that is RARELY addressed or talked about.

I know gaslighting.

I know false narratives.

I know trauma.

I know being silenced.

I know being censored.

I know being discredited by persons in power.

I know the harm & oppression perpetrated by the system.

I know panic.

I know being defensive.

I know chaos.

I know loss.

I know fear.

I know having everything stripped away from you, powerless to act or do anything, knowing I did everything right … the best I could.

I know isolation and helplessness.

I know the “pinch me” factor, wondering if this is all a bad nightmare that I will wake up from.

I know the feeling of questioning what’s real and what’s not.

I know the hypervigilance.

I know the desire to flee.

I know the blame game.

I know the feeling of ‘how am I going to survive’

I know the feeling that I didn’t belong on a planet so cruel.

We are ALL cocooning. Evolving. Changing in ways unseen by the logical minds eye.

The Invitation

I invite you to step out of fear and put our freedoms to work as a sovereign Be-ing. I invite you to make healthy choices and put in place everything we know about how to be healthy and strong in the face of life’s critical moments.

I invite you to be open to another narrative. I invite you to be open and be that curious child.  I challenge you to BE skeptical.  Healthy skepticism is good.

For me, there’s a BIG difference between how I am responding NOW vs THEN.

I spent 15yrs working on myself incessantly healing, purging, letting go, befriending my shadows, looking at the darkness within, finding SOLID credible teachers to help support me … all to heal, let go as well as build a healthy spiritual immunity and resiliency.

I’ve harnessed my super powers to sniff out corruption, gaslighting and abuse when I see it.

I have dared to be brave.

I faced fears.

I questioned the narratives.

I stepped up.

I have worked on improving my language understanding that language has spiritual power – ‘kotodama’.

I have faced my ‘white privilege’ and still do.

I addressed my own toxic infectious colonized mindset and still do.

I have maintained the mindset of a student.

I’ve avoided multiple major surgeries by employing spiritually based integrative holistic health practices.

I got off medication cuz they were no longer needed.

I avoided the need for antibiotics.

I changed my diet naturally without much effort eating things I would normally have found gross like spinach …

My body started to heal.

My mind started to heal.

I learned how to tap into the body’s magical powerful way of healing itself.

I’ve had to learn what self-love looks like.

I had to redefine what safety looks like.

I removed toxic relationships and inserted healthy boundaries with ones I wanted in my life.

If I wanted a different external situation, I needed to work on the internal one FIRST.

I became my own superhero. Is it easy? FUCK NO.

However, today I am pausing.

I pay attention to the inner cues and whispers like clues on a treasure map.

I am reflecting on how far I’ve come and that I am actually alive.

I empathize with all of those who are being highly triggered right now. I’ve been there.

I empathize with all of those who are being hypervigilant right now. I’ve been there.

I empathize with all of those feeling of anger, frustration, and feeling trapped. I know these emotions

I have learned some serious mad skills over the years to help me adjust.

I’m now really realizing how far I have come because of how I am responding to this crisis.

I want to share them with you.

I invite you to learn something different … to learn my “how” to become your own superhero especially during times of crisis.

I extend an invitation into self-discovery learning how to build healthy spiritual immunity and resiliency.

Let me show you.

I’ve invested in you. Will you invest in you?

There is light in the darkness.

There is possibility in times of chaos.

Can you see beyond the chaos?

Can you see beyond the obvious?

Our souls hold the wisdom we seek.

Our souls wait for us to be heard.

There is a way to master the calm within the storm.

I am here.

I’ve spent 15yrs building and acquiring an arsenal of tools to share with those who are ready for THIS medicine that is ministered to the human spirit.

How we look at the world is crucial. The world is as we see it.

This invitation is NOT for those who are already set in their ways and beliefs. I am not trying to convince anyone of anything.

This invitation is for those who are struggling with searching for a new narrative knowing there is a different way but may not know the what or how.


Please join us May 17th while we explore and journey into self discovery over a period of 5 weeks.  Learn how to not only be an empath survivor, but an empath thriver while building a stronger spiritual immunity and resiliency during times of crisis. Click here.


Am I making sense or do I sound like a crazy lady?

The Dark Side of the Holidays From A Trauma Survivor


As a parent, there is no greater heartache than losing a child. What can sometimes be harder is feeling that loss over and over and over again, because your children are still alive, but the emotional torture of knowing they are living with a documented abuser and you are powerless, because the system is beyond broken, is unbearable.

Unfortunately, THIS is exactly what abusers are aiming for – to continue their patterns of abuse by using the system against their victims outspending them at the expense of the children.

This is NOT how a parent SHOWS love for their child. These children are just pawns for their abusers sick game. In the end, the children lose and our broken system that claims to protect victims of abuse, do not. In fact, it may be getting worse in light of a 2014 MA Supreme Court cases granting custody of the children to a documented abuser ignoring the best interest of the child statute. With a pending supreme court case currently being heard. Click here. THIS IS DANGEROUS.

This is not to mention how domestic violence in itself spikes during the holidays which can be a dangerous time for survivors.

My Motherly Grief

This holiday season will be the 13th holiday without my children.

I spent over $300k in legal fees defending myself against my abuser whose admitted ONLY mission was to destroy me AND erase any memory of me or my family in my children’s childhood memories. He won cuz he outspent me.

My children were nothing more than a commodity traded on Wall Street legally trafficked by way of family courts.

How can ANY judge NOT see this as a continuing pattern of an already documented history of abuse.

I had hope one day … one day … my children would be old enough to seek me out. I used to count the days to when my children were adults and they would come back to me. I used to have a motto I would say to myself, “As each day passes, I am one day closer”. Meaning, I was looking forward to the day my children were old enough to no longer be in control of their abusive father. It was a way of giving myself hope.

However, what I am now experiencing as each year passes, the grief gets unfortunately gets heavier. Each holiday I am finding to be more painful as two of my children are now over 18 years old with the ability to reach to me. Yet, they still do not want me in their life based on a forced absence and a brain washing technique called, gaslighting resulting in a phenomena called Stockholm Syndrome. This pains me deeply. They have NO concept of what I had to go through to keep them safe, protect them from harm, and fight for them over an exhausting 11 years straight until a judge prohibited me from fighting for them anymore.

It is sad how much our society

  • condones this type of abuse,
  • routinely sides with abusers,
  • victim shames
  • & we wonder why we have the escalation of gun violence happening in our country.

Our society tripled the damage just with my 3 children alone, never mind the 58,000 American children this happens to EVERY year.

Why do I do what I do?

I feel part of healing trauma is

Laura at Deer Valley Buddhist Retreat Center, San Diego, CA
  • facing this very dark harsh reality,
  • keep talking about it until someone listens,
  • stand in our truth against all odds,
  • when our children are legally trafficked from us, when we heal our energetic core, we also heal theirs on some level too
  • & somehow we make peace with it all.

The BEST revenge against any abuser is to THRIVE against all that was stolen from us.

So for those struggling right now with the loss of your children, know I feel you. I empathize with you. You’re NOT alone. We are in this together.

The BEST action is to support survivors in whatever way necessary. This means:

  • holding space for survivors
  • believing a victim of abuse
  • question the abuser NOT the victim
  • stop shaming survivors
  • assist in funding housing and job creations
  • assist in babysitting
  • volunteer at a shelter
  • donate to the cause – it take A LOT of money
  • become a good litigation family law attorney with a focus on domestic violence law and custody
  • walk the walk
  • model healthy behavior for your children and DO your own inner work so the cycle of generational abuse can finally end.

I see too many survivors STILL aligning with abusers. THIS must end if we are to change the abuse culture we live in today.

My pain is still here, but I choose to channel it into something that will break the cycle of abuse perpetrated against my children

One of my reasons for sharing my story, my healing path, my journey publicly is

Laura on Cape Cod, MA
  • NOT to gain sympathy,
  • but to shed light on an unrecognized epidemic in our society,
  • to bring voice to others lurking in the shadows silenced by abuse,
  • and to know no matter how dire, healing CAN HAPPEN.

Up to 80% of contested custody cases involving abuse award abusers and legally steal our children away from us as punishment for speaking out, saying “no more”, seeking safety, justice or all the above.

We can NOT let the abuser steal our life TOO. If we do, THEY win. The best we can do for our children, is SHOW what healing, recovery, and resiliency look like.

Our ability to THRIVE CAN happen.

Please don’t lose sight of the mission.

How will you use your pain? Loss? Grief?

Thank you for supporting my journey.

With appreciation,
Laura

What It Means To Be Truly Free When Silenced. Finding and Honoring The Voice


VULNERABILITY MOMENT & QUESTIONS:

July, 4, 2019

Today I honor my voice while contemplating what it means to be truly FREE especially as a woman who was silenced at one point for using her voice in attempts to protect 20 families the system failed to protect victims from abuse.

I attempted to help one victim who was incarcerated at Framingham State Penn who was currently serving 7 months in prison. Why was she there? What was her crime? She was unemployed at peak of recession and could not pay a court ordered legal bill. Yup. Heard that right. Rapists and pedophiles get less prison time. (Not one of 20 cases btw)

I had another case with medically documented child sex abuse by 2 doctors and 2 therapists. I saw the evaluations. I saw the very disturbing pictures this little 7yo boy drew. Judge response? Threatened mother on record that if he ever finds out she is lying, she’ll never see her son again and granted joint legal and physical custody to the rapist.

It cost my my relationship with my own three children who were legally trafficked by way of family courts as punishment for trying to save lives here in Massachusetts.

My children will have no memory of me in their childhood in most crucial moments in their developmental brains aka developmental trauma CAUSED by the MA Family Courts.

That loving mother/daughter(s) bond was STOLEN from us because I thought I was doing what I thought was right to save lives entitled to be FREE from harm under U.S. Constitution.

My children have been Stockholmed, abused, traded as a commodity, sold, and will live with the effects of abuse and developmental trauma that I couldn’t save them from. There is no reparations for damage done. How can there be?

Today, I am wiser & much less naive. I use my voice differently and not so much on the front lines anymore.

Is that not truly using my voice fully? Is that cowardly? Is that still a form of censorship?

Are we ever truly FREE?

What does freedom mean to you?

Do you choose fear or love?

Along we are strong. Together, we are sooooo much stronger.

Speak out.

Rise up.

What’s happening at the southern border of the U.S.A. is ALSO happening to 58,000 U.S. children too EVERY YEAR.

Don’t you see the patterns here? 

Are we truly FREE?

Happy 4th of July 🇺🇸.

With appreciation,

Laura
