The Liberation Fund

Living in the Land of Synchronicity, as I so often do, I’ve decided to listen to my daily horoscope from, which reads:

Your horoscope for March 5, 2010 If you’re drawn to group activities connected to your spirituality, Laura, this is the day to explore them, as spiritual insights related to group meditations or workshops could well come your way today. Some of them may be a bit nebulous, and others could be totally strange and unexpected, but nonetheless you should write your ideas down or otherwise memorialize them. They could shed light on new revelations that could come later.

For several months now I have been working on a quiet but massive manifestation project, which I have affectionately named, “The Liberation Fund.” It began as a lark. LOL, as a Gemini, most of my big ideas do tend to begin that way! I was talking with a client who decided she needed a certain amount of cash in order to feel comfortable taking a leap of faith. In the session, I asked her to imagine what would happen if she already HAD the money.

She couldn’t imagine where it could possibly come from, so for the sake of imagination, I said, “Well, let’s just say it came from me. Let’s just say that somehow, someway I managed to manifest it for you.” She laughed, but because she’s seen me manifest some pretty big things, she could imagine this scenario much more easily than manifesting the money in any other way. We went on with the exercise and she found that she has quite the exciting life intended for herself and others — as she really only needs the cash flow to leverage her into a position of serving others.

After I got off the phone with her, I started daydreaming about how much fun it would be to gift her that windfall of money. Then I started pondering ALL the people I know and love, some clients, some friends, some family members, others just people I admire from afar. As a life coach and intuitive, I have the advantage of receiving people’s expressed wishes as well as the unexpressed “hits” about what resources it would take to manifest their dreams. A surprisingly large number of people I know have worked through nearly all remaining resistance to service and full life path expression, except for having cash on hand to activate those dreams and responsibilities. Loving everyone and wanting to see them succeed, expand and bliss out, my daydream grew from one client to a list of about forty-five charismatic people for whom opening the door would change not only their world, but our entire world.

Big dreams with huge, inconceivably big ripple effects.

And so … I started asking. Or, as Shawn Blackwolf likes to say, “assking” … with fluidic pressure and release. Intensifying those requests, adding pressure, allowing the steam to build, and then releasing it. I really did not intend to announce this little project to the world. Until now, only a handful of people have known of my “crazy” little daydream, but I’m quite serious about it. If I’ve told you I’ve been praying for you, I’m not talking idle prayer. I have been working hard!

Part of the reason I felt led to Hyde Park was because my energy feels much stronger there. Something amplifies it in that particular part of Chicago, and I have spent much time meditating, praying, wandering and wondering by the Lake, in my apartment with my portal doors, and around the community. I’ve also gone to two John of God healing events with his assistant Caterina, as well as a Full Moon sweat lodge last weekend. Some of this has been for my own healing, but I’ve been directing MOST of my energy to the healing of others as well as planetary and cosmic healing. I figure if I’m praying anyway, I might as well pray big.

I’ve also been playing the lottery. I know this sounds strange, but hey, it’s me. I’ve come to accept the fact that I’m (a little) strange. 😉 I had a series of numbers I was playing and I’d come close, except rarely on the date or game I actually played. Still, there’d be enough overlap that I’d keep playing if I felt nudged. And I often did. Little winks from the universe saying, “You’re onto something, Laura. Keep it up.” The other day, though, I said to myself, God and my guides, “You know? I’m getting tired of playing the lottery. This is almost embarrassing. I need some kind of sign if you want me to buy another ticket because really, I’m starting to feel too silly about all of this.”

I did my day of Wandering and Wondering and had a really odd day, synchronicity upon crazy synchronicity. While walking, I saw two lottery tickets lying on the ground, right after seeing all these abundance signs (angel numbers, intuitions, synchronicities about winning unexpectedly, other very personal signs of certain wishes coming true — wishes currently held up only by a lack of funds). I walked by the discarded tickets and got a hit to turn around and pick them up, so I did. All were random quickpicks from March 1. I checked at the store to see if they were winners: no, but having been led to the lottery counter, I bought a Powerball ticket.

Here’s the weird thing: I checked the winning number the following day, and one of those old tickets I found had 3 of the 5 winning numbers from March 3 (3/3/2001, which is a 333 date, a sign of the Ascended Masters). The same ticket was off by only one digit on another number. I checked the other discarded ticket and it listed two quickpicks, random spreads of numbers, but they were almost identical. I combined the repeated numbers of those four random spreads, and three of the numbers overlapped three times and two overlapped twice. Pretty strange, right?

So … I changed my numbers and bought a ticket for tonight. I had contemplated sharing this crazy little Liberation Fund idea in a newsletter and then thought better of it. Why make an announcement about such an odd and private project? If it came to fruition, I would share the story, but why expose myself ahead of time? It is, after all, a bit embarrassing to admit publicly a belief that one may very well win the lottery. Almost as embarrassing as my admission in my interview in Passion Magazine that I believed in Santa Claus until I was fourteen years old! (My younger brother tried to burst my bubble. I say tried because part of me still believes in Good Saint Nicholas. When you hop dimensions as often as I do, hey, some beliefs come along for the ride.) Anyway, I wasn’t going to say anything, but the question was on my mind this morning whether to share the Liberation Fund intention with others. Then my horoscope came through:

March 5, 2010: If you’re drawn to group activities connected to your spirituality, Laura, this is the day to explore them, as spiritual insights related to group meditations or workshops could well come your way today. Some of them may be a bit nebulous, and others could be totally strange and unexpected, but nonetheless you should write your ideas down or otherwise memorialize them. They could shed light on new revelations that could come later.

So there you have it. I’ve written them down and memorialized them. I heard from Ray of Sedona that this is a wonderful weekend for making a wish come true because Jupiter and Mercury align, creating a cosmic union perfect for taking unmanifest wishes and giving them form in the material world. In mythology, Mercury does Jupiter’s dirty work, taking care of all the tiresome, tedious or unpleasant details required to create and maintain order in the universe. Though a trickster, Mercury also rules communication and has a free pass into and out of the underworld. Jupiter marks expansion, and Jupiter also just aligned last weekend with the Sun. Mercury can take Jupiter’s ideas and complete all required details to make it so.

What does all of this mean in laymen’s terms? Dream big. Make your wishes heard. Knock and it shall be opened. That’s always true, but the current alignment acts like WD40 on a squeaky hinge. Instead of creaking open, that door you’ve been knocking on may very well fly open. Prepare yourself to walk on through.

And wish me luck, please. Somehow, someway, I really would love to see that Liberation Fund start flowing. Cuz some of you have got some really, really amazing projects and intentions in the works! Many, many blessings. 🙂

    What would happen if we all were allowed to dream big without feeling as though we were foolish for thinking that we could be anything more than what fear and apprehension cuts and pastes onto our chests? What would happen if instead of begrudging someone for shining we were to believe that we could too! Thanks, Laura for reminding me of the excitement that comes from dreaming and believing! Blessings, love and gratitude. Giacinta XO

    “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
    It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
    We ask ourselves, “Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?”
    Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.
    Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that
    other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.
    And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we’re liberated from our own fear, Our presence automatically liberates others.”
    –Marianne Williamson

    Thanks, after all this effort and so many synchronicities, I know SOMETHING will come through this weekend or on the 9th. I just don’t know what. 🙂
