Spirit Babies, New Souls, Fertility, Death and the Meaning of Miscarriage

For most of my life, I’ve acted as a spiritual midwife, assisting souls crossing the veil one way or the other. As a Medical Intuitive, I hear from many people diagnosed with “terminal” illnesses. Some recover their physical health by healing on the soul level; others require assistance as they prepare for death. At the other end of the spectrum, I do a lot of work with couples trying to conceive, with women suffering from repeat miscarriages, and/or couples who’ve welcomed in children with special needs.

The topics of fertility issues, miscarriages, special needs children, and metaphysical meaning of pregnancy and beyond keep arising in sessions. These are sacred themes and processes and ones I feel honored to support by providing bigger picture context and insights into soul path and dreams. I actually find the fertility and birth sessions among the most soul healing and transformative, because these conversations so often lead to generational healing, reclamation of lineage, and/or healing of past life traumas.What seems an isolated issue becomes a touchstone to deep, multidimensional healing.

One perk of helping so many women conceive and give birth “against all odds” includes receiving so many amazing birth stories as follow-up, along with photos of the little ones as they grow. I feel grateful to be a sort of faery godmother or “Auntie Laura” to so many beautiful children, and a recipient of some of the most magical stories of synchronicity and soul awakening. I cannot share those deeply personal stories on my blog, except to say that they provide tremendous honoring and confirmation of what I call “the Mystery with a capital M.”

Anyone struggling with fertility, miscarriage and/or special needs children might find help and hope in this old blog post from 2009, which still holds true today: “Fertility, Miscarriage & Special Needs Kids: Some Medical Intuitive Observations.”

I know from so many women the devastation of a pregnancy not happening or not going “as planned,” and I just feel led to affirm that there is a plan — and you can find meaning, peace and fertility in your life. It might look a little different than you expected or currently allow, or it might arrive through your own healing. Rest assured, it does arrive.

Sending much love and many blessings … Laura

Slowing Down the Druid Way, Part IV: Slow Movements and Slow Spirituality

Lots of good nuggets here. I’m particularly interested in the Slow Money movement as a sane antidote to financial market instability: farmers market stability! Prior to my 1998 brain injury, I was a go-go-go kind of person. I actually needed to unlearn time management, since the spread of unbroken time in disability loomed very large. Retiring at 25 and then completely retooling my life to include very different work and balanced leisure time was one of the most challenging and rewarding things I’ve done. Making a conscious choice to move in this direction saves people many a health crisis. … Thank you, Dana!

The Druid's Garden

When I lived in Michigan, each Christmas, a local church just down the road from me put on a drive-by nativity scene. Cars full of people would line up for over half a mile and drive around this circular loop surrounding the church, where church members dressed up and enacted various kinds of nativity scenes.  I’m sure from the perspective of the church (who, clearly, invested a lot of time and resources, taking weeks to build the sets in the bitter cold in the time leading up to the event), it was a way to reach people who might otherwise not come through the church doors.  This same church also offered “speedy sermons” and other “quick” ways of getting busy people in the door. The idea behind these different initiatives was reaching out to people who were otherwise too busy to come to church–a reasonable and rather creative thing to…

Lee Harris ~ Energy Update, Invite Peace & Connect

This is an important energy update from Lee Harris, which echoes what I have sensed in my own life, as well as themes during sessions. I have been very busy with sessions and teaching various public and private classes, so I’ve not had time to post about current energies. As usual, Lee is spot on. This video will especially support anyone in process of summoning big life changes, working on creative projects, and/or reevaluating relationships. Here’s Lee:

Lyme Disease Prevention and Resources

In response to some reader comments and emails, I wanted to post a couple links today regarding prevention and resources for Lyme Disease.

First comment from PeaceNowFlower: “Hello Laura, I heard the early Spring was causing an epidemic of Ticks in many areas. If you have a post you can republish to give your readers knowledge about how to prevent or treat early Lyme, it might be a year to post it early like the early warmth.”  Here’s a link to a May 2014 post that still holds true today:

Protecting Yourself from Lyme Disease includes my own tips, as well as a tick protocol by homeopathic MD, Dr. Ronald Whitmont.

Also, from blog reader, Linda: “just read this article by a Toronto [psychotherapist] who wrote a book on Lyme disease (Lyme Madness) in the hopes of waking up mental health professionals to the reality of Lyme.  Her adult son has it.  Thought you might find it interesting/of use:  Lyme is All in Your Head.”

When I clicked through to the article, I realized it’s by Lori Dennis, whose interviews by Catherine Grace O’Connell you can find linked on my blog by clicking here.  Lori is both compassionate and extremely savvy about the mental/emotional/neurological side effects of Lyme Disease, as well as the insurance and medical reluctance to look at Chronic Lyme. She’s a mama bear advocate, driven by love for her son, and I love how the article notes the role of mothers in addressing and changing the narrative about this disease.
Big blessings, healing and safe hiking to everyone!

March 2017 Specials

MARCH 2017 SPECIALS

So many people keep contacting me about Empath concerns and Empath health related issues that I’ve decided to extend the February Energy Protection for Empaths Special through March. My morning meditation also surprised me with a brand new, never before offered Special to help some people take a major step into the next phase of life and leadership. Details below. As always, I intuit which specials to offer based on my read of the current month’s energies and what I can offer as strongest support for the month’s potential shifts. I wish you each peace, discernment and joy as we continue to move through 2017’s powerful energies.

Energy Protection for Empaths

This new half-hour offering shares tips and techniques specifically tailored to your own energy field and the challenges you face as a “Sensitive” or “Empath” — someone who deeply feels the emotions and energies of others, including the larger collective energies and emotions. Empaths have intuitive, psychic, and healing gifts that can feel more like a curse when faced with discord, negative or disharmonious frequencies like EMF’s, groupthink, or emotional overwhelm.

As someone whose already very thin veil practically disappeared with a 1998 brain injury, I have learned through trial and error, extensive research and over 15 years as a professional Medical Intuitive, how to protect the energy field so that those “gifts” actually live up to their potential. These tips and techniques don’t mean you stop feeling the energies; however, they allow you to recognize more clearly when something’s “yours” and when it’s not. They also help you much more quickly return to peace, soul sovereignty, joy, and allow you to exercise much greater healing influence in your life and in our world.

$77 for the half hour if prepaid on or before 3/31/2017. This session can also be doubled for an hour at $154. For more information or to sign up, please contact me here.

$555 Reiki Level 3 Master Teacher Certification Special

I’ve never offered something like this before, and I don’t know if I ever will again; however, this morning, I received a very strong sense to do so for the month of March 2017. I’m taking $95 off the normal rate for in-person or correspondence/phone/distance training and certification for Reiki Level III Master Teacher. This special obviously does not apply to everyone, as you will need at least Reiki Level 2 Certification from me or another Reiki Master Teacher. I also require a casual but effective application process so that I get a sense of readiness for this next level. 555 indicates divinely guided positive change, so it seems like an appropriate number for certification to teach “divinely directed healing energy,” another definition of Reiki besides “Universal Life Force Energy.”

People considering this special might find this Reiki Master Teacher FAQ post very helpful in answering common questions related to discerning your own readiness and our compatibility as teacher and student. You do not need to know for sure you’d like to teach Reiki in order to take this training. You just need to feel ready to learn Reiki from the perspective of one who could teach and who has committed to living the Reiki Principles as much as possible in your own life.If you decide you’d like to apply for in-person (in Goshen, IN) or long distance Reiki Level 3 Master Teacher Certification, please contact me, and we’ll start the short application process. The message to post this special was so strong this morning, that I’m excited to see who steps forward. Offer valid if prepaid on or by March 31, 2017.

 

Oh Those NarciPaths – Shahida’s “20 Narci Tactics”

Thank you, Jamie and Shahida. I’m reblogging Jamie’s comments, which then link to Shahida’s excellent article. As Jamie notes, narcissism is majorly and absurdly in our faces right now from so many corners. Learning (and reminding ourselves) how to recognize the signs allows us to move much more freely in our own power and discernment, helping us to know for sure what we do or do not wish to create in the world — rather than just accepting some prescribed version of who we are and what we value. Hugely important right now for individuals and civilization as a whole!

I’d usually just reblog this one, but the reblog format is funky. So I’m just going to say this:

Shahida Arabi, via her Self-Care Haven blog, recently posted an excellent summary of 20 often-used Bully and NarciPath tactics.

I shared Shahida’sFive Ways Narcissists Get In Your Head” post some time ago, and mentioned her blog in my “Withholding as a Manipulation Tactic” post for the Empaths & Sensitives ‘readers favorite’ series (which spotlights other common tactics, like ‘leveling’, ‘off-loading’ and others as well).

The point isn’t to shame and blame — ’nuffa that going on — but to recognize the tactics and patterns so we can more easily step outside of them and respond rather than react from a place of awareness and greater resourcefulness.

That can be tall practice…

TANAAZ (Forever Conscious): “Intuitive Astrology: New Moon Solar Eclipse February 2017”

This post has some excellent information about the upcoming New Moon Solar Eclipse on February 26th. I especially agree with these sentences, as they are tips I tell people all the time:

“When it comes to manifesting however, sometimes it is best to focus on what feelings you want to create for this new chapter, rather than physical or material items.

“While there is nothing wrong wishing for something material or physical, there is greater power in manifesting feelings or states of being.”

Happy Shifting!

The New Moon Solar Eclipse falls in the intuitive and watery sign of Pisces on February 26th.

This Solar Eclipse is the first of the year and is going to set the tone and energy for the months ahead. In fact, whatever energy transpires on this Eclipse is likely to create a theme that will last until the next Solar Eclipse on August 21st.

Earlier this month on February 11, we had a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse, which was all about endings, letting go and clearing out the past. This energy has still been lingering but will shift as the New Moon Solar Eclipse energy takes over.

If Lunar Eclipses are all about endings, Solar Eclipses are all about new beginnings. Whatever emotions or events were stirred earlier this month are likely to melt away and shift in a new direction as February draws to a close.

Energetically, the Universe has been calling…
