ABOUT TRIGGERS & SPIRITUAL MEDICINE PODCAST:
Real talk. Let’s address the elephant in the room to the growing “sickness” in our society, address root issues and provide sustainable solutions.
We hope by addressing the intersectionality and connect the dots like a web of many of society’s challenges, we can help others understand the trauma infection that impacts all areas of life – addiction, domestic violence, racism, homelessness, sexual abuse, chronic health issues, cancer, environmental issues, climate change and more.
In this NEW collaborative program, we hope by highlighting these infected areas and what they share in common, a new perspective of solutions, healing, and resolutions can be birthed.
Each episode addresses a certain trigger while offering the spiritual medicine with at least 3 tips or actionable steps our listeners can take and implement.
Vision: To break the unrecognized endemic of unresolved unhealed trauma & create sustainable systems for recovery, healing & empowerment.
Mission: To help others rediscover the power that lies within and to find that treasure buried in the depths of the shadows. To help them become their own superhero.
Join me for a mid-winter psychic blitz. See flier for all the amazing offerings.

This 2020 review and 2021 energy forecast was recorded LIVE on 1/1/21 during our normally scheduled Mornings with Laura; Spiritual Medicine & Meditation event.
Here is a glimpse of what we talk about.
We reviewed the 2020 energies and themes that played out throughout the year.
Numerology for the day 1/1/21: 7
2021 Numerology for the year: 5
Today’s Medicine 1/1/21: PAINTED TURTLE
PLUS, a guided meditation with the Tibetan Singing Bowls
The numerology for 2020 was a 4 year – a “work” year as talked about throughout the year in our LIVE events as well as throughout the blog posts posted throughout the year as well.
What does this mean – a “work” year? We have a leveling out that happened in 2020 between the ego/material world and the soul/spiritual realm. This means that:
trauma healing – generational, past life, personal
no longer able to spiritually bypass without consequences
The deep hard stuff was in our face and we were forced to face it. Clearly 2020 was no joke. However, if you think 2021 will be a walk in the park, you might be in for a rude awakening.
The Beetle – The Past Lessons
The focus was on the “earth” elements, cocooning, and restoring balance of life.
This was reflected in the “Beetle” card pulled which is associated with the water element, the 7 of cups in tarot which highlighted the need to face necessary decisions.
In 2020 we discovered the need for stronger partnership with plant and herbal medicine and stewardship of our great Mother Earth.
We discovered the importance of grounding, centering, tapping into ancestral work/wisdom, decolonization work, and social justice.
(A complete list of 2020 reports at the bottom).
We have been learning how to balance the yin/yang, light/dark as we evolve into a new era of human evolution.
This years surrender influence: SURRENDER DEFENSIVENESS
Now before you all get defensive – hahahahaha – take a pause and process without judgment. See what shows up for you as you go through the meditation portion in the video.
“Defensiveness is a sign of weakness. To communicate in a more empowered way, stay centered and hear someone out – then offer a clear, non defensive response.”
The Painted Turtle – The Present Moments
In 2021, we move into integration as brought to us by the painted turtle which is associated with the fire element and the 6 of wands in tarot.
The painted turtle is showing us to continue with what we set out in motion in2020 with the lessons of the beetle. Through all this good stuff will commence this year.
Themes of working together in groups or collaboration is important. It is key to be less “me” or “I” and more “we”, which is a very Aquarian age theme moving forward anyway.
The rewards are NOT without continued strong effort. These efforts will begin to see the payoff especially over the next 2-3 months – so basically through spring equinox.
What do you want to birth????
The Swan – Moving Forward
The swan in the future position has been showing up repeatedly during our Facebook LIVE events at the end of the year and in the beginning. There is no coincidence here.
Swan is connected to the Temperance (XIV) card in tarot. Over the next 2-3 months, it is important to move forward with the lessons from the prior two cards and implement their teachings.
Be aware of the increase sensitivities into new realms and energies associated with these teachings to be awakening for you. HOWEVER, we can NOT bypass the first 2 lessons of the beetle and turtle to get there.
It is important to pay attention to what shows up for you in the subtle energy realm over the next 2-3 months.
Try new things.
See what shows up without the need to control outcomes or create expectations.
Create and maintain more balance in the elementals – water, air, earth, fire. Yet, do not abandon everything right now either.
Watch the replay for more key information and discussions around what we learned from 2020 and how to move forward in 2021.
Plus, a meditation to help you begin the year centered, clear and balanced
The 2020 Intense Karmic Start and Four Tips To Move Forward – Well in case you missed my January post, 2020 is a massive year for “change” being a four year in numerology in all areas of our life. It is also a “work” year, a year to cultivate our deep inner spirit, and connect with the ancestors for healing and wisdom.
Spiritual Medicine With Jaguar During Times of Civil Unrest -This has been quite the spiritual journey in the depths of the shadow realm this year, and there is a LOT surfacing personally, collectively, karmicly, and generationally in the first 6 months amidst a COVID19 outbreak with growing protests & civil unrest. A spiritual message is born.
We will talk about what has been happening w/ a summary in the areas of
Recent Space Weather events
Recent electrical events on Earth
Tomorrow’s Full Moon
How Halloween factors in all this
AND 5 TIPS on where to focus NOW
My goal with this post is to provide some energetic psychic insight to what is happening from as pure of a state as possible while giving spiritual guidance on how to navigate these polarizing energies while balancing any triggers we may encounter along the way.
What a Shit Show And Circus Being Allowed to Continue or Is It? Your Decide.
The energies are sure proving themselves in revelations of the darkness and shadows and while highlighting what we need to do in our evolution of our own soul growth.
First I want to state that pulling these cards took me 2 months to do to ensure the right energetic alignment was palatable enough to minimize the effects of my own personal beliefs interfering with this type of message.
I am aware of the toxic spirituality floating around and the level of predatory spiritual leaders in many communities for malicious or selfish agendas. History is riddled with this spiritual toxicity. This shadowy veil is highlighting this so we may evolve. My efforts to ensure I am not complicit to the problem of abusing my own position of power to influence despite my imperfect humanness is important to me.
My goal with this post is to provide some energetic psychic insight to what is happening from as pure of a state as possible while giving you guidance on how to navigate these polarizing energies while balancing any triggers and increasing verbal assaults you might be faced with.
I want to start off with sharing the summary of the 2016 presidential election psychic reading I did in July 2016 so you have an idea of the energetic flow.
Followed by the 2020 election energies. Then a summary regarding the cards pulled over the last 4 years.
Finally, the verdict based on the cards pulled on September 29, 2020 and my final thoughts on how to navigate these energies DESPITE your political and/or personal beliefs.
First … the 2016 Election Summary
The cards I pulled for the 2016 election were accurate.
I posted the cards on Instagram without a description due to fear of repercussions from sharing what I saw especially since majority of the psychics and astrologers I saw post that Hillary would be the shoe in.
I did NOT feel that at all. As you can see just by looking at the cards, it did NOT look favorable for Hillary Clinton. I saw “her world as she knew it crumbling” and what she “used” to gain power was unraveling before our eyes.
Her career started out with a passion that ignited her political career, but somewhere along the line, her passion became easily corrupted. Her undoing was the interference of another – whether it was Snowden or another younger male. That “leak” is what began to deflate and expose the corruption surrounding the Clinton Foundation.
The cards did NOT feel as though she thought she did anything wrong. After all, she was a women in power that very few get to achieve in a culture where women are still NOT viewed as equals to men especially in areas of law, politics, social justice.
As far as Trump went, I was unclear actually about his success in the Presidency at the time when I pulled these. I just knew Hillary would NOT become President by her own misguided doings as shown by the upside down Page of Wands card.
Trump did have, however, a team of very powerful rich men behind him. He would not have run for President nor succeeded if he did not have this crucial backing as shown in the three of Pentacles above. This marked the initial stages of implementation of Trumps Presidential bid.
The middle card, the two of swords, indicates a decision to sever the personal and professional relationship Trump had with the Clintons understanding the consequences of this decision. The blindfold suggests that Hillary never saw it coming.
The two of Pentacles in Trump’s spread showed how he adapted and learned to juggle the world of politics. It reflects that he was able to take any stone thrown at him and in his words, “win”.
I think we know WHO won the 2016 election. This spread I pulled on July 6, 2016 was accurate.
My concerns on knowing Hillary was NOT going to win, but concerns with why I felt Trump’s fate in the election was not certain either, baffled me. However, looking in the rear view mirror, the Russia investigation, the election interference, and impeachment validated those intuitive hits I got. Everything made sense in hind sight.
The 2020 Presidential Election Forecast
So when I pulled this spread just before the first presidential debate on 9/29/20, my first initial reads were:
Trump was the “bringer of shadows and darkness”.
Justice is blinded
and there will be an element of manipulation, greed, and “trickery” by Trump to secure his re-election.
and that for Biden, my initial hits were:
a man who mastered his emotional state.
someone who fights for women’s rights
yet someone who is sensitive and emotionally unsure he can beat a Titan. With faith being tested.
On top of the this, when I look at the two center cards – the Justice and three of cups – The overall energies right now surround the future of rights for women – their ability to have autonomy and sovereignty – are currently on the table with Roe vs Wade on the table and VAWA taking the lead.
Make NO MISTAKE – Who we elect will determine the fate of women’s rights.
So now let’s look a bit deeper for clarification. The Justice and Magician card combo suggests that those who fear Trump are right to be afraid. This “frightening” human is wielding a power unprecedented in this young country. He wields a power and mastery at the skill of manipulation and greed.
When we look at the Moon and Justice card combination under Trump, we see a very “dangerous person“. I have seen this type of person before, which is why it took me so long to do this spread so I can present in a clear divine way to ensure I am reporting what I see clearly and unbiased. Not that easy.
This combination of cards for Trump also highlights the HOW factor. What I mean is that he is openly engaging in dangerous manipulation and trickery without care of repercussions. Like most abusers, he has been getting away with this behavior for decades without being held accountable for his actions.
Trump is a skillful person able to deflect and project his toxic behaviors, words, and actions successfully onto his so called “enemies”.
For folks involved in the occult or new age magic stuff – not my realm of expertise – this highlights the possibility of the use of occult malificia or psychic pressure for power or vengeance.
I will highlight the overall election VERDICT further down below.
Now as far as Biden goes … at least with these cards, it seems a lot simpler here. The King of Cups tells us that Biden has had many battles that have challenged him emotionally and mentally. He conquered those emotions while maintaining the calming reassuring fatherly presence.
The three of cups is celebratory. What I heard with this card is to remember that Biden helped get a crucial legislation passed to protect women from violence and provide services, shelter and support for those abused or sexually assaulted. The landmark violence against women act (click here for fact sheet) took over a decade if not mistaken to get this law passed.
It is showing up in the present because under the Justice card, the VAWA is currently under threat.
Click here for the facts on this current threat dated 9/13/20 stating “President Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell have decided to block the most recent VAWA reauthorization”. Whether or not you feel this is fake news or not, the cards do NOT lie and have NOT lied ever since pulling them regarding anything political.
This is why I do not pull on the cuff. I wait to pull when energies are aligned and my personal energies and beliefs will have as minimal affect on the reading as possible.
The five of cups in the future position is highlighting that things might get disappointing for Biden and that things may not work out as expected on some level.
The Psychic hits between 2016-2020
I did multiple card readings regarding Trump over the last four years. The most recent post on July 24, 2019 on the Mueller Investigation echoed the prior readings with reoccurring themes.
The main thread throughout the four separate times I pulled cards revolved around these aspects:
The USA is at a cross roads and depending on which path the American people choose will dictate the future.
If anything is going to change, it needs to come from the people NOT those in power and the people need to stop complaining and DO something such as organize local meetings, protest, make calls to legislators, and holding our elected officials accountable for their actions or inactions and stop thinking your neighbor will do it for you. If you want change, you must rise up and do it.
There is a LOT of distractions being tossed out and the gullible money driven media took the bait. This is a classic tactic batterers know how to do well. I know. I witnessed this first hand.
The warnings are a wake up call. If there is to be justice, that must come from the rise of the people. Unfortunately, we never saw that unified rise of the people that was needed to make the necessary changes.
SO here we are….
So What’s the Verdict for the 2020 Presidential Election?
At the end of the day, what happens rests in the hands of the UNIFIED citizens of the United States of America. Make no mistake on dividing the people. That was a skillful tactic.
In traditional tarot, the page of swords is about a messenger, an emissary or liaison between separate camps. In this case, between separate presidential campaigns.
The page here has a responsibility to faithfully represent one side’s communications to the other. Unfortunately, we did not experience this in the first debate on 9/29/20 as we all witnessed.
When applied to politics, this could mean a “spy” or someone working for one of the campaigns to gain access to sensitive information. This so called “spy” could be the undoing of the king rendering him powerless.
If Biden is going to win, he needs to learn how to use his quiet calm voice effectively and convincingly like RBG did in winning 5 out 6 supreme court cases especially in the arena around the threats surrounding women’s rights that are currently being challenged including Roe v Wade and The VAWA. He needs to basically call in the divine help of Ruth Bader Ginsberg to make this happen. He will also need to draw on his faith more. Trust his faith more than his aides.
If Trump is going to win, he will do so through cunning skillful manipulation and trickery with the help of a “spy” to accomplish this and will convincingly blame another for anything out of integrity or unlawful. Whether or not this means China, North Korea, Russia or even white supremacist extremist groups as he stated to “Stand by” while refusing to denounce racially motivated extremist groups.
Interestingly, as far as COVID or a COVID vaccine goes, that seems to be a mute point at least in regards to THIS reading.
Finally, if you read this post this far and maybe you are feeling triggered with fear or uncertainty, tap into the wisdom of the body for there resides the truth you seek and wisdom you desire.
Here is the final card for you: Surrender to the Wisdom of Your Body.
“Listen to your body’s messages about a person or situation. If you feel physically drained or uncomfortable, be cautious. If you are energized and happy, move forward.”
If you are STILL feeling stuck or fearful or unsure, please join us in our Facebook group for extra support, spiritual medicine and meditation offered LIVE 3x a week.
Or check out these upcoming classes to help you step into you power more effectively:
The Rooted and Resilient Empath 8 week virtual class
Bless Your Junk and BE EmPOWERed 4 wk virtual class.
Plus, 3 mini master classes each an hour long, complete with workbook, and experientials.
Stop watching the news & TV or at least reduce your exposure. The serve investors NOT the people. This is the ultimate gaslighting and we, the people, rarely question the stories.
Start going within where the truth resides and wisdom is revealed.
Do the HARD shitty healing work that is needed, so you can elevate yourself as a better steward and human being.
Get active in activism. Do something to better the planet.
Above all – VOTE
This election especially will hinge on the turn out of the youth as the determining factor. Anyone under the age of 40, will need to be schooled on what is currently at stake for women rights that could set women back decades.
Did I explain it plainly enough keeping it simple without too much of my projection?
Let me know your thoughts on this post in the comments below.
WOW What a year huh? It is certainly the WTF kinda of year and NO matter how much we predicted these times – YES we did – it sometimes does not make these challenges any easier though.
All it does is give us a road map on how to navigate through all of this evolutionary change. I posted a 2020 forecast here with a followup here on karmic debt and three tips to moving forward. Did you catch those posts???
Since 2020 began, these energies have created lots of contrast in our lives. The idea of spiritually bypassing our way through life will not help any of us. The trading one feel good addiction for another has shown to be more harmful than good as I talk about here.
By April, it felt like all hell broke lose. So I pulled some cards on the matter and created a vlog post regarding COVID here. This is about emotional & spiritual maturity, truths revealed, shadows continuing to surface and how to navigate moving forward. This year is VERY reflective of the “Tower” card in tarot.
There is a single threaded message that streams though all these posts addressing the triggers & ego destruction. This year has been less about trying to “control” situations or outcomes and more about mastering the calm within the storm while co-creating with the divine and disconnecting from the news & propaganda. Think Hunger Games, the Matrix series and Avatar.
In May, things escalated again on many fronts. So, I used my trauma & trigger healing journey to get quite candid and personal talking about Facing the Shadows & Healing During COVID19 as an invitation to hope, healing and guidance during some very challenging times of cocooning.
In June, the jaguar appeared where I talked about the Spiritual Medicine With Jaguar During Times of Civil Unrest. Here I talked about my premonitions over the years about these times and addressed 3 lessons we have learned so far including upping our virtual presence and call for unity as well as continuing themes of trusting instincts and ego destruction.
We are stewards of this Great Mother and stewardship is our sacred duty that we collectively have neglected. We have been talking about THIS aspect A LOT in our FB LIVES held 3x a week.
Since COVID shutdown everything days before my birthday in March, I felt a huge call to action to BE an anchor of support to the community. So, for the last 22+ weeks I have been offering free/by donation FB LIVE events ranging from energy updates to meditation to psychic medium readings to a 7 day challenge to somatic movements to council meetings on the topic of trauma, triggers, and spiritual medicine and more.
Here is one of those messages recorded on 8/26/20 from a Facebook LIVE on Spiritual Signs, Time Master & Turtle Medicine, & completing with video Meditation W/ The Tibetan Singing Bowls. Towards the end, we ask for shares and experiences.
Like the video above, I have been blending many of the tools I’ve acquired over the last 15 years. As a result of these teachings and the interaction and engagement of community to participate, we’ve witnessed some BIG medicine coming through that is helping so many during these challenging polarizing times as well as all life.
Since the launch of this initiative, our group has doubled in size since March to over 700 members from all over including MA, RI, CA, NM, AZ to Korea, UK, and Denmark.
These events have been instrumental as a spiritual guidance tool to help us co-create and navigate through all the human egoic bullshit coming at us from all different angles and sides.
Before I share with you the tips to help you navigate the rest of this year, here is a followup from 8/26/20 that I felt compelled to share on 8/28/20 from another Facebook LIVE on Trauma, Earth Medicine, Meditation and the Master 22 Number in numerology that is relevant to what I am posting about here.
Now Moving Forward
Finally, things are shifting, moving, evolving in so many areas and planes from the earth’s electrical grid to space weather to rise in consciousness to shifts in the material world. There is an infinite intelligence of Great Spirit that makes up the fundamental fabric of the Universe. Think The Matrix Series, Tesla, and Einstein just to name a few.
The Facebook Live we did on September 4, 2020 addressed the “MAGIC”. Remember, we can’t experience or see magic if we do NOT believe. This is a time to reconnect with the inner child and see and experience the world through their eyes.
We are being called to step up and recognize the universal … spirit … dance in all the synchronicity, signs, symbols, and omens you might receive or experience. This veil has been thinning for quite a while.
I would ask that you trust in your divinity and flow and not fall into the illunsionary trap of many formalized religions. You have your own infinite intelligence built within you. We have been deprogrammed is all.
Here are 4 tips to help you move forward this fall
Click here, where I elaborate on these tips in more detail.
FIRST, Continue to take personal responsibility for where you are at. Continue to clear the “old” and face the junk & shadows. Not sure how? Check out my Classes Tab for course descriptions.
Second, learn how to navigate and master the flow.
Third, Stay grounded & center yourself.
Fourth, (NEWLY ADDED/ not in video) either learn how to co-create Source energy/the divine/Spirit/God/ Great Spirit/The Universe etc or deepen your connection to this co-creation piece.
Think of 2020 as the year of ACCOMPLISHMENT from a soul perspective in four (4) “work” year in numerology . This is where we want to go:
when we master the idea of NOT controlling Mother Nature, but aligning with and co-creating with her in sacred partnership.
settle karmic debt
and clear out the shadows and/or shine the light in the dark places within.
HOW do we implement these strategies?
Life is a journey & lesson for evolution of the soul to BE EXPLORED. That exploration continues this fall.
Remember, THIS … THIS is multi-layered, multi-faceted. Some of this is individual AND some of this is collective. Learn to decipher what is your junk and what is someone else’s.
Is it a SH*T SHOW right now???
Yes, it is … if we choose to see it this way or we can choose to see what is happening as an opportunity which brings me to a saying someone ones said to me early on my healing path. We are either in a pile of dung. Going into a pile of dung, or getting out of a pile of dung. The difference is HOW we handle these situations.
A psychic energy perspective on the numerological gateway date of 4/4/20 (444) where we chat about the energies during these evolutionary times.
This was originally recorded on Instagram LIVE but had to re-record this message in order to share this. There is LOTS of stuff surfacing karmicly, generationally, and past life on top of current stuff. There is more to what is happening than the obvious.
In this video I share with you what is happening energetically, collectively and spiritually around the COVID19 and what we need to do collectively to move forward.
This is synonymous to what I wrote about in the 2020 forecast just amplified. Click here for the 2020 forecast with a followup posted here talking about karmic debt and three tips to moving forward. Did you catch those posts??? If not, please do as sometimes what is needed is seen through the congruency and patterns.
