Current Energies, Wisdom of the Body, and a Guided Meditation in Nature

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.

Healing Trauma Through The System of Reiki at the Healthy Living Expo

Join Laura at the Healthy Living Magazine Conference & Expo on Sunday April 8th as a featured presenter.

TIME: 2-3pm in the Halifax Room

Trauma is not what you may think.

Have you endured unexplained or life lifelong symptoms?

Do you suffer from chronic illness, anxiety, depression, fatigue, physical pain or even cancer?

Did your symptom or illness manifest as the result of a past trauma?

The #metoo movement has done an amazing job at opening the doors on many fronts. Many are beginning to awaken and understand the reason they feel the way they do maybe due trauma – personal, generational, karmic and are finally searching for ways to address those innate needs.

Our bodies are miraculous beings fully equipped to heal themselves. Reiki taps into the body’s innate abilities.

However, when we experience trauma, such as an accident, natural disaster, loss, or even abuse, those abilities become significantly compromised. Although, we are taught that time heals all wounds, we are learning this is not always the case. Many times these traumas manifest years later.

The traditional standard treatment in our American healthcare system rarely looks at the “root cause” of our symptoms and treats only the symptom. Therefore, we rarely address and heal the underlying cause. Left untreated, it can manifest into illness.

What happened to you does not have to be a life sentence. Join Laura for powerful presentation and discover how the system of reiki can empower you, remove toxicity, restore wholeness and create a healthier you!

Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a simple form of energy healing from Japan known as “Shinshin Kaizen Usui Reiki Ryoho”, which translates as “Usui treatment for the improvement of body and mind”.

Reiki supports the whole person physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually while drilling down on specific issues. Reiki is easy to learn and can be used in a home or clinical setting to enhance the health and emotional wellness of both self and others. It is also complementary with all other alternative or traditional medical treatments, and in non-invasive.

Jikiden Reiki® is the “direct” teaching of Reiki as it was taught in Japan before it was brought to the west in the 1930’s. Because Jikiden Reiki® is free from Western influence, it differs from “Western” style of Reiki in approach, attitude, and ideas.

Jikiden Reiki® sessions focus on removing toxins from the body and guiding it towards wholeness. It is known for its effective treatment of acute and chronic conditions, as well as to address deep rooted beliefs, habits, traumas and addictions. Reiki has been effective treatment option like alleviating pain, pre-op and post-op surgery recovery, anxiety, skin conditions and posttraumatic stress.

About the Presenter:

Laura Joseph is a survivor of abuse, speaker, healer, intuitive, writer and teacher. She has a background as a college educator and domestic abuse advocate with over 15 cumulative years of experience in healthcare with a focus on trauma informed care.

Laura has incorporated spiritually based holistic health practices such as reiki in her line of work since 2006 and is a Jikiden Reiki® Shihan

Laura frequently travels as a guest speaker at conferences and organizations on healing trauma through spiritually based and holistic based practices. Laura brings her empathy, passion, compassion, and wit to assist in bringing out the best in you.

When The Unexpected Happens

Feeling these energies?

So the energies have been a little wackadoodle doo per say with the current planetary alignment, shifts, and shadows that continue to rise up. So I thought instead of a social media post, I would share my experience today with you all.

As I said the energies are a little nutty to say the least.  What many of you do not know is that I am not immune to these shifts. I am however, grateful to the tools and skill sets I have to help me through the process.  I have had a very difficult emotional roller coaster of a week working on my own shadows and blocks so I can free myself up from a horrific past on top of a crazy busy week speaking at 3 venues on 3 separate yet related topics in 5 days.

I was told I need to start asking for more help, which I have begun to do. I even sent our a social media request for a “little extra good mojo sent my way with all these crazy energies to help keep my energies balanced and grounded while flowing through all that is on my plate this week easily and effortlessly.”

An Unexpected Surprise Today

Today it is raining. A good day to cleanse the soul and flush away to old junk. I was driving down to my meeting today where I gave a presentation to approximately 25 business professionals on the topic of holistic health, spirituality, the physiology of being a vibrational being made of energy, the standard American medical treatments and why the system is broken, and how to take back your life and health.

I was not sure how well I would communicate my message due to the ever changing intense energies that can affect this empath. However, I will just say this. Here is best feedback from today’s presentation: 

“There wasn’t a single person not engaged with your presentation. That never happens. You had them all”

Probably the second best feedback was being told that I had a Shinto priest in full traditional white attire as a guide helping me today. I was surprised, but for that amazing message, I am humbled and honored.

I took my time driving back to my office to reflect on the day and all the incredibly amazing feedback I received as it was quite overwhelming.

My heart was filled with gratitude.

What Happened Next Stunned Me

So I arrived back at my office, ruminating over thoughts I know that should not be there. You know – those “lack” thoughts and as I settled in, I noticed a very pretty purple envelope on my desk. I first wondered, “A belated birthday card I wondered, but who would know?”

I opened it to find THIS. I immediately sat down … well maybe sank in my chair as I began to read. The name of the person is withheld for privacy reasons until I get permission to publish the beautifully hand written note.

Here it is …

“Dear Laura,

Such an old-fashioned notion, letter-writing. An art form we all used to have to do back in the Dark Ages, before computers. I always enjoyed it, and thought it would be easier than leaving a comment online for you, especially since I’m not on Facebook or Twitter.

I am really enjoying your blogs and videos and everything you have available for the masses! Thank you so much for taking all the time and effort to reach out to us. As a result of watching you & reading what you have put up, I feel renewed – in fact, I am no longer watching late-night TV – I am spending that hour before bed with your words, and I feel as though I have found a long lost friend – you have reminded me of many truths I already knew, but which have been slipping from consciousness from a lack of attention. Every topic – it’s all interesting to me – delivered with great courage and love on your part. I’m a believer in naps, too! Just got up from one, and it’s like starting a brand new day.

There is so much more room here to write. Have you heard this?  “If you are always trying to be normal, you will never know how amazing you can be.” Maya Angelou

Sending love and blessings backatcha -(letter signature)

P.S. I was (how they met me). A great honor for me. Thank you for saying hello. You were fantastic!”

In Conclusion

Can I just say WOW. Some of you know my story. Many of you do not. I never profess to anyone that I do not have my own struggles or battles or that my life is perfect.

As I said today at the presentation, I am about being real. I am about being raw and authentic.  Some may appreciate that. Others may not. That is OK.

When I thought over this past weekend I was failing, failing to find a way through this block that is restricting my growth …literally … I receive such kindness and warmth that I am not used to receiving and I will admit, at times I struggle with accepting. I know that is one of my residual PTSD triggers and self preservation mechanisms. However, I will say, I did not experience that today. I allowed and I received.

Funny to come back to my office to THIS letter. Talk about being in vibrational alignment. Not to mention the numerological factors involved.

Meaning:

  • Letter mailed on 3/31/18 = 9
  • Letter received on 4/4/18 = 1

That chapter I have been struggling with is ending and the one I am trying to birth is growing and launching. Trust in the signs the Universe gives you.  It has never failed me.

So … I am here to tell you, don’t let your head play (excuse my language) … mind fuck games … with you and steal your inner joy and peace.

To everyone I came in contact with today or even the beautiful woman who sent me the amazing hand written letter, I honor you. Thank you all for being a part of my journey.

You made my day today … miraculous! You restored some faith in myself I questioned. Because of you, I feel I will find the resolution I seek sooner rather than later to moving through my own last BIG block. I look forward to that day.

With love and appreciation,
Laura

Are You Planting Seeds This Spring Equinox?

A good morning start with the medicine of mourning dove and crow as my natural morning alarm system.  What a magical way to begin my day.  Both birds have been very strong personal totems for me communicating messages to me in the areas of love, divinity, and magic for many years.

I saw this fallen tree pictured in the graphic on a hike I went on a while ago and was amazed at the resiliency and survival instincts. We can learn so much about ourselves cradled in the arms of nature.

March has sure come charging in a lion and has no slowing down in sight to exit as a lamb. You feeling this? If you live in New England, you may have certainly been feeling this.

Today marks the vernal equinox or otherwise known as the spring equinox. For some this day may seem insignificant, but for others, it marks the return to light as well as for rebirth, new beginnings, and fresh starts and has been celebrated by almost every native culture across the globe.

So TODAY, I am reminded with this message that came to me during my morning meditation.

“As I release the dead of winter, I plant heirloom seeds for the future I envision.  Today, I nurture my soul.”

So I am curious, how are you using the energies of today to nurture your soul?

Feeling the need for more guidance or direction?  You may also want to check out the Card For The Day to help guide you further today and days to come.

Happy Spring Equinox. Be sure to nurture you and the soul you ARE.

With lots of love and appreciation,

Laura

Spring Equinox Tarot Card For The Day 3/20/18

#CardForTheDay: THE HIEROPHANT

Well howdy doozy time with these energies.  Holy cow. How are you doing over the last few weeks?  Please share your experiences. I am sure you are not alone.  By sharing your experience, you may can actually bring some relief to another.

Have you ever heard the saying, “when the student is ready, the teacher will appear”? Today’s card is reminding us of this sentiment.

Today’s card is asking us to pay attention to the “unseen”, the divine that is all around us. We are divinely supported and loved unconditionally whether we realize this/believe this or not.  Just because we can not see what lies in the unknown yet, does not mean it does not exist.

Remember we know the air we breathe that keeps us alive exists. However, the air is not tangible to the touch or visible sight.

 The number five in today’s card is reminding us that we are in the midst of some great change ahead. This is compounded with the energies of today’s  vernal equinox aka spring equinox.

If you are feeling these changes, and/or struggling with them, this card is reminding us to seek a spiritual advisor, teacher, or counselor to help guide us. This spiritual teacher could be our soul, a group, or someone else who can help us make sense of what is happening in the spiritual realms while integrating this knowledge into the physical plane during these challenging times.

We are much more that what we see in this physical world. We are SOUL with unlimited potential.

Remember all teachers were at one point a student. So, this may also mean that while you seek support, others may also seek you out as well. OR … it is time for the teacher to become the student once again.

Either way, as the energies continue to intensify ahead, it is important to stay true to you (in the sense of what your soul came here to learn not what our egos perceive as truth)

There is something greater that lies ahead than what is seen. Remember, we are all one consciousness at the end of the day … star dust.

As always I am here to help. I have a few openings this week for private sessions. Please reach out and schedule a time if you feel I can be of assistance to you and your path.

With lots of love and appreciation,

Some New Moon Intentions and Affirmations To Guide You

 

Are you ready to manifest? Create something magnificent?

The new moon is a perfect time to hit that reset button and open yourself up to new beginnings.

 

Here are some tips to guide you:

 

New Moon Affirmations:

  • I AM divinely filled and supported.
  • I shine my light and confidently in the night shattering all darkness that arises.
  • I AM manifesting all the good that aligns with my soul purpose.
  • I invite abundance and prosperity into my life.
  • My soul steps forward guiding me through this journey.
  • And so it is …

New Moon Intentions:

Watch your thoughts for like a genie in a bottle would say, your wish is my command. It’s manifestation time and don’t forget to write your prosperity checks too.

The New Moon is the perfect time to manifest new things into your life. This is also a perfect time to write yourself a New Moon Prosperity Check, which serve as a tool we can use to create more abundance in our lives.

You don’t necessarily have to believe the check itself will work when you write it. What do you have to lose? Just try it, and be open. You just might be surprised at the results with the increased prosperity and abundance in some area of your life.  Remember, abundance in itself is not always financial.
However, by writing your new moon prosperity check, you become more attune to all the possibilities that can happen.

New Moon Prosperity Check Instructions:

There are many ways to write your New Moon Prosperity Check. You can use a check from your check book, or use the check below.

Key: Write your Prosperity Check within 24 hours after each New Moon.

From your checkbook:

  1. Feel throughtout your whole body and in your heart with the intention for something of great prosperity and abundance to happen.
  2. In the ‘Date’ area, write ‘Now’.
  3. In ‘Pay to the Order of’, write your name.
  4. In the dollar amount, write ‘Paid in Full’. You may also write a specific dollar amount that you have in mind if you choose instead that you feel is attainable in 30 days.
  5. Sign the Check ‘The Universe’. You can also sign it ‘God’, ‘Your Angel’, ‘The Law of Abundance’, or whatever you are comfortable with.
  6. In the ‘Memo’ area, write ‘Thank You’

Place the check in a safe place with intention to bring more prosperity and financial balance into your life. Then, forget about it as you just turned over your intention to the Universe. Don’t worry or think about the ‘how’.  The Universe will take it from there.

It is important to reflect as much positive energy as possible.  Please be mindful  that if you are currently in a dire distressed state, this process will work, but more time will be needed. So it is important to visualize the end result. Visualize how you will feel … Feel the sensations of happiness and gratitude flow through your veins when you receive such a generous amount of money. Believe it to be possible.

Remember that abundance is so much more than money, and comes in many forms. Here are some examples:

  • Perhaps a coworker invites you out to lunch and unexpectedly pays.
  • Perhaps something came to you “out of the blue”.
  • Perhaps you are talking with a friend and he/she offers you some valuable pearls of wisdom regarding some area of your life.
  • Perhaps a neighbor stops by to offer assistance with some home maintenance or project that you’ve been struggling with.
  • Perhaps something you have been wanting is suddenly  gifted to you.

Above all, be GRATEFUL for ALL that comes into your life. Just try it, and see what abundance awaits you.

You can burn the check from the previous month as you thank The Universe for all the miracles, prosperity, and abundance you received.  The best time to burn your prosperity checks in on one of the upcoming full moons. Make sure you always express your gratitude for receiving prosperity and abundance in your life while the check is burning.

Remember, everything is energy and energy is abundant and unlimited! So enjoy it, be thankful, and stay positive! 

Have a blessed day.

Namaste,
Laura

Breaking Free From The Chains Of The Past


Trauma …

Trauma … We have all been affected by trauma one way or another in our lifetime. However, we may not realize how a traumatic event may have affected our life or impacted our soul.

The challenge is trauma doesn’t affect us the way we perceive it. It affects us on a cellular and soul level and may not even be in our own awareness leading to chronic illness, cancer, pain, poor relationships, etc.

So, when I read the following quote, it struck me and gave me lots to ponder on and contemplate ultimately leading to this post:

“If your mind carries a heavy burden of past, you will experience more of the same. The past perpetuates itself through lack of presence.” – Eckhart Tolle

I am going on my 13th year when I made a crucial decision to leave an abusive relationship and begin my healing path for first time in my life.

One of the things that I have learned in my 13 years, is that the more I connected to the divine within, soul, inner child, it also reveals the root cause that wounded my core. I began to discover the roots to my fears, insecurities, and my own self sabotaging behaviors … to the place it all began … the seed that began decades before I married an abuser.

I began my healing journey broken wondering how to put all the pieces of me back together.

I began to employ traditional therapies (which didn’t help me much), support groups, spiritually based practices such as developing my sequestered intuition, meditation, reiki, acupuncture, journaling, dance, connecting to nature and more.

We have technology which is supposed to make us more connected than ever. However, we are actually more disconnected than ever. We are not connected to the very life that breathes underneath our feet, Mother Earth. We are not connected to our own BE-ing or essence.  We live in a society of wanting everything now, instant gratification, and a “plugged in” to that technology 24/7.

Unfortunately, healing doesn’t work like that. Employing a one day at a time mindset goes a long way as well as a lot of self-compassion. Learning new ways “to be” takes time. Discovering you again takes time. Developing new skill sets to heal takes time. Finding someone to help you who has the skill sets is huge if you can find that coach/healer.

Employing a mindset of presence helped me with my trauma, PTSD, anxiety and the physical illness that resulted from my trauma. There’s many ways to learn the art of presence whether through meditation or mindfulness-based practices, but from me, learning Jikiden Reiki changed everything for me. This is where I have seen the most growth in my life since I began this journey in 2005.
