Energy Update: 2018 Super Full Moon Lunar Eclipse

The super full moon lunar eclipse is approaching. Are you feeling it yet? Are you experiencing a spiritual flu? Not sure what I am talking about? Click here to read about tips to follow your soulful path.

You may also want to check out an older blog post on spiritual purging and 10 TIps to guide you. You can read it here.

The divine feminine energies continue to rise. There is still much resistance happening globally as we continue to ascend as a collective and with the solar activity compounded with the upcoming eclipse, this is sure to be a doozy.

The upcoming eclipse is also happening on an 11 year in Leo which is at 11 degrees.  A double whammy. There are only 3 master numbers in the science of numerology, and the “11” is one of the three.

So what does this mean for you?

This means that 2018 is one powerful year and it is starting off with a kick already. How it plays out is solely up to you and whether or not you choice to be a piece o the larger puzzle.

If you follow me on social media, you have heard me voice this theme of paradoxes and miracles aka the ying and yang aka the positive and negative.

This is a number that can make magic and manifest miracles. Some of us already got a glimpse last year with how quickly things materialized and manifested when our energies were aligned with the Universes.

So if you are someone who has a lot of stress, anxiety or depression or you may even find yourself filled with anger or worry, you will get exactly more of that unless you choose to shift your energies.

It is crucial to keep your thoughts positive. And when you find yourself off the path or resorting to old outdated paradigms, don’t go beating yourself up. Choose a better way to reflect.

You are in the driver’s seat driving super fast a warped speed. Practicing and mastering the art of presence can help you as well.

At the end of the day, this year is a BIG year.  Hold on to your boot straps. 

What is your superpower to help you navigate these ever-changing Energies?


Soooooo. There is always an antidote to the negative if you are currently faced with increased fears, anxieties, stress, anger, illness. I would like to know how you handle that.

My super power is my sense of awareness and instincts when awareness is present. What is also needed is presence. With presence you are able to see clearer and with awareness.
☆ With awareness, #clarity and presence become easier.
☆ With awareness, you become intimately aware of your inner and out of surroundings.

☆  With awareness, you learn to act and not react. 
☆ With awareness, I'm able to listen to the wisdoms of the body.
☆ With awareness, I am able to nurture my wounded soul and begin healing old traumas whether it is personal, generational, karmic, or past life.

I would love to hear what superpower you have too. Please share.

In the meantime, enjoy the ride and learn to surf those waves of change.  I am here to help.

What 2017 Revealed to Us


2017 proved to be quite a challenging year for so many to put it mildly. I am not immune. All year we have been met with some very exciting times for soul and human growth, combined with what may appear as extreme smack downs.

Every time I was met with adversity, I was equally welcomed with a blessing. I also learned we see what we choose to see and focus on. Hence, perspective and perception.

The year 2017 was quite the year for change to say the least. We experienced huge enormous personal storms. However, It set the stage of a solid foundation for great things to manifest and come. Hence, welcome 2018.

Faith was certainly pushed to it's limits this year. Those close to me know how far my faith was tested. However, at the end of the day all we have is faith. With faith, all things are possible.

The theme of #trustintheprocess never rang truer than it did this year. Did you feel it?

There were things I witnessed that I never thought I would see in my lifetime. WOW. Thank you to the community for finally rising and standing up. Those who normalize abuse are feeling the karmic backlash... finally I can breathe. Because of You, today I am able to bless my junk. #metoo.

In case you missed my video series on Today I Bless My Junk #metoo, you may visit the following Youtube Links:
What I also experienced in 2017 was the level of communication between humans and nature and an acceleration of the return of the ancient wisdoms. Yes, you might think I live in an alternate Universe, but what if I said those who do not see, do?

Trees and water have been speaking louder than ever before. I wrote about one of my journeys last year. Check out  "A Mindfulness Journey Into The I AM  ... The Tree" and see if this resonates with you.

Moving Forward


I am personally looking forward to reaping the rewards of a 20yr journey of trials and tribulations for the first time this year.

I feel miracles about to happen on so many fronts and dimensions. This #metoo movement has restored much in me that I thought was lost forever. Many of you have been hearing me talk about for months regarding the paradoxes, the silver linings, and shifts of focus.

Many of us have worked hard and diligent in cleaning up our vibration, facing our shadow selves, and choosing to live more authentically.

I see the personal storms clearing and the sun returning. This is the perfect time to plant those heirloom seeds you been wanting to plant.

I am grateful for my loving and supportive friends and family who have lift me up when I was weak and believed in me when I didn't believe in myself. You are truly earth angels.

Let's close the 2017 chapter with authenticity, truth, and love, and turn the page to a new 2018 chapter with a blank slate and begin to write. The Universe is guiding us. We have a choice. Are you going to write a new chapter or are you going to keep re-looking and staying stuck in the last book you have read how many times?

Together ... Let's make 2018 an incredible year of miracles and dreams that come true.


Healing The Past


If you have not worked on your shadows aka your junk over the past couple years, this year could prove to be challenging.

Healing the past is crucial to moving forward. I have seen a surge of “old traumas” over the past year surface – whether our own, generational or karmic.

Many of us are STILL avoiding, and many of us have faced mega health crisis this past year and we may even baffle the medical community.

It may not be medical, although a medical crisis may result. It may actually be spiritual. You may want to read “When Medical Science Can Not Explain Your Symptoms. How To Know If It Is Spiritual?” to see if this resonates with you.

We are at a crossroads now. We have become a culture who has normalized abuse and violence in many ways. So when it comes to things we did to others or things that may have happened to us in the past, we think time will heal all wounds, and brush it under the carpet.

Some of us may have seen ourselves do this. We may have even “gaslighted” ourselves in the process.

In order to move forward, you must heal and accept your authentic true self. No one ever said healing was a pleasant journey, but it is a worthwhile one that can lead to all of what your soul desires. This is something I can personally attest to. I've sailed those treacherous waters, and I am now here to be your beacon and guide you back to yourself.

As a matter of fact, healing can down right be painful and exhausting giving glimpses of questioning life and our faith. However, somehow, we manage to push through the barriers and search for that rainbow at the end of the storm that just wreaked havoc in our lives.
It is through our greatest adversities where we find the greatest gifts.

Just like the life of the caterpillar that transforms into the beautiful butterfly, the journey in the cocoon is quite ugly. Yet, the caterpillar still chooses to cocoon and continue onto the journey.

In order to become the butterfly, we must shed all that is associated with the caterpillar. This is where we struggle. Many of us want to become the butterfly, but we want to hold onto the identity associated with the caterpillar.

This is where your soul is asking you to “trust in the process” to “trust that your soul has your back”

Are you finally ready to become who you were meant to be?

Part of the healing process includes a letting go process. Many people, including myself at one point, get frustrated over HOW to do this. Ohhhh do I recall how frustrated I use to get. Some of you who know me long enough may recall those days.

So how do you let go?

You must first feel. Uggggggg right? Many of us run from certain feelings and emotions our whole lives especially if there is trauma in place. Running away is not going to empower what you seek. Facing yourself does. Allowing yourself to feel and let the wisdom of the body speak will free you.

Once you can truly feel, then you can understand. Once you can understand, then you can let go. Now, you may not get the answers you seek. Understanding does not mean answers. It may simply means, that you understand yourself, your feelings, and the process.

Needing some guidance? I am here to help.


Insight into 2018


So what do I see in store for 2018? I feel this year is representative of the following traits:
  • The 11 master number year in numerology 
  • Social awareness and social justice 
  • A year of paradoxes and growing pains 
  • A year of miracles and magic 
  • Importance of managing stress and burnout
I always find it fascinating when I see various pieces of a larger puzzle come together. In this case, the puzzle of the Universe.

I love the listening and following the ancient wisdoms. The guidance over the past year has been profoundly life changing for me personally in helping me to trust myself again after that trust was stripped by my abusers.

Interestingly enough, 2018 is the Year of the Earth Dog according to the Chinese calendar. Here, I associate the dog as a loyal devoted companion that epitomizes the words unconditional love.

However, I see this year of the dog is about balance, fairness, and social justice. For those of you who know my Ava, she has been by support, my healer, and my partner to help others in their journey. It is a good year for dog energy.

The 11 Master Number Year


This year represents a master number in numerology. There are only 3 master numbers, and the “11” is one of the three.

So what does this mean for you?

This means that 2018 is one powerful year. How it plays out is solely up to you and whether or not you choice to be a piece o the larger puzzle.

If you follow me on social media, you have heard me voice this theme of paradoxes and miracles aka the ying and yang aka the positive and negative.

This is a number that can make magic and manifest miracles. Some of us already got a glimpse last year with how quickly things materialized and manifested when our energies were aligned with the Universes.

So if you are someone who has a lot of stress, anxiety or depression or you may even find yourself filled with anger or worry, you will get exactly more of that unless you choose to shift your energies.

It is crucial to keep your thoughts positive. And when you find yourself off the path or resorting to old outdated paradigms, don’t go beating yourself up. Choose a better way to reflect.

You are in the driver’s seat driving super fast a warped speed. Practicing and mastering the art of presence can help you as well.

Or

If you are a reiki practitioner, increasing your meditation and practice with the gokai may be in order.

Kyo Dake Wa (Just For Today)
Ikaruna (Do Not Anger)
Shin Pai Suna (Do Not Worry)
Kan Sha Shite (Be Grateful)
Go-o-Hageme (Do Your Duties Fully)
Hito Ni Shinsetsu Ni  (Be Kind To Others)

At the end of the day, this year is a BIG year.

Not sure what all this means for you? Seeking some spiritual guidance? I am here to help.


A Year of Social Awareness and Social Justice


Like I said earlier, witnessing the #metoo movement was something I never thought I would see in my lifetime.

I always approached this #metoo movement with caution, because I saw that until we hold abusive judges accountable and remove them from the bench aka remove their ability to enable abusers to continue their patterns of abuse.

Then to have a pedophile judge who has been known to abuse his judicial power against victims of abuse, loses a historic race. Can I just say WOW? #nomoore

Some of you know my story, and many of you don’t. I shared a part of my journey in the “Today I Bless My Junk” video series if you would like to hear about my story and my healing journey. (links above)

The momentum has not stopped there, millions of dollars have poured into a legal fund for those victimized by workplace sexual harassment. WOW.

I suspect there will be more allegations of abuse coming to light.

The karmic justice thread is real and it is here.

This year is a GREAT year to jump on the social awareness and social justice band wagon. The energies are perfectly aligned to support you through this process.

If you have been traumatized, but still fear what retaliations or judgments may ensue by coming forward, please note that the time is NOW. You are divinely supported. Please make sure you align yourself with the right people to guide you through the process.

With that said, in December, we launched a fundraising drive to help form a scholarship program through Massachusetts Survivors Outreach to help survivors of abuse pay for healing programs and classes with us.

The one thing I am well aware of ... speaking as a survivor of abuse and now as a speaker and healer for survivors of abuse ... abusers target their victims financially once they leave. They know rendering them financially destitute prevents the victim from healing or being empowered to reclaim their life again.

What better gift than to give the gift of healing. Help support our program.

As we continue to ascend and evolve, more and more people are taking off their masks and lifting the veils. They are not only becoming more aware of the imbalances of power, they are no longer willing to be a bystander. They are seeking to be a catalyst to shift this balance of power.

There is a huge shift from the few to many. It is such a great time around social justice themes. Don’t sit by the sidelines. Rise up. Act.

Struggling with healing old traumas or are old traumas manifesting into physical illnesses and need help? I am here to help

Want to help us build a team focused on breaking the cycles of abuse through healing? Let’s collaborate.

A Year of Paradoxes and Growing Pains

My internal guidance system has been saying for years with increasing validations over the past several months that we are under a great change aka shift in consciousness.

What I have been feeling is that we are headed towards a great paradox.

I know some of you may be saying “really”, “not again”. Let me explain.

Our “ego” has been ruling humanity for quite some time now. I will hypothesize this has been going on with increasing rates for over 500 – 1000 years or maybe longer just to give you a scope of what I mean by a long time.

Over the past few years, we have been given tasks to do for the evolution of our souls each guiding us to the next place in time and preparing us for the NOW.

Some are calling this the great shift in consciousness. The old paradigms are no longer working for us. Many of us have become “tapped in” or sensitivities rising where it was not before. Don’t be afraid. This is all part of the awakening process. This is all part of the shift in consciousness.

Many of us are experiencing ascension symptoms and growing pains.

So why do I say this is a year of paradoxes? This is because there are still people who are resisting this change.

Many may feel this shift in consciousness is not tangible like a car or bank account and lack control, they fear to surrender to this calling. Some may like their “status quo” or their version of reality and fear change or disruption. They prefer to stay in the illusion.

Therefore, those who are resisting might be challenged this year as they attempt to find the great wave of change.

And with this being an 11 year, what we think, do, react, will be amplified.

Do you struggle with the negative loop that runs in your mind and unsure how to break it? I am here to help.

A Year of Miracles and Magic

The rise of the divine feminine has never been stronger. This has nothing to do with the male sex or female sex and everything to do the energies we all carry via yin energy.

Mother Earth has been vocal through the catastrophic storms letting us know of her displeasure in how we take care of her.

The #metoo movement amplifies these energies.

The divine feminine is what births miracles and knows how to instinctively nurture to all that is birthed.

Remember, this year will manifest based on choices we make. So choose wisely.

Nurture the womb within.

Day dream again. Have conversations with the inner child. Let go of your fears. Trust in the process.

Focus on that burning desire buried deep within that maybe you have forgotten about.

When you are in vibrational alignment with the Universe and your soul, things shift rapidly.

This year is poised to manifest those miracles, and breakthroughs you have been working so hard at. I know I have been waiting 20 years for this year to arrive. I am counting my blessings and waking up every day with a grateful heart.

Focus your attention on the magic and miracles and let go of your fears and insecurities and watch the magic unfold before you.

This year is primed for success and prosperity. Use these energies wisely.

May and November seem to be key months to watch.

Feeling the need for some guidance to help you? I am here to help you.

Importance of Watching Your Health, Managing Stress and Burnout



It is important to build a dialogue with yourself, and listen to the wisdoms of the body.




There is so much change occurring at super-fast speeds, that we might find ourselves faced with health issues, challenges in managing stress, and burnout.

Can I say ... BALANCE. A word that has been circulating these past couple years.

This challenge with health is a theme that already started last year, and saw escalate after the solar eclipse in August 2017.

Some of this might be a healing crisis aka spiritual crisis. Others may be lack of self-care or resistance to these changes. Whatever the root cause, be aware of what your body tells you. This is not the time to muscle through it, but to lovingly pause, listen and act.

The theme of more self care practices is crucial to staying well. 

This includes the food you eat. Is it fuel or poison? This includes our self care hygiene. Do we practice self care? Do we get that massage or reiki or acupuncture session? Do we take that yoga, Thai chi, fitness class we keep saying we want to? Do we get enough rest and downtime?

Have we stopped trying to appease everyone else first? Have we stopped pretending to be someone we are not? Have we taken back our power?

I am here to help you.


Closing and 5 Tips To Guide You This Year


Here are 5 tips to guide you this year:

  1. Practice the art of presence. Some refer to this practice also as mindfulness. Be aware of your thoughts, actions, and reactions. Adjust as necessary to bring you back to the present moment.
  2. Listen to the wisdom of the body. When we build a relationship with our bodies and listen to its wisdom, we are given insight and healing to things before that may have left us feeling stuck like a hamster on a wheel.
  3. Keep your thoughts positive. By being more mindful of our thoughts and how it affects our wellbeing and life, we can become more aware of how to shift. When we listen to the wisdom of the body, we become more aware of how our thoughts physically, emotionally and spiritually affect us. 
  4. Self Care. This has been a theme than began in 2015, but really increased its momentum in 2017. Self care needs to no longer be at the bottom of the list, but rather at the top of the list. You and your loved ones will thank you in the end. Not to mention, you set a prime example of caring for yourself in a loving and compassionate way to your children. What a gift!
  5. Rise Up. Act. This is time to get involved in a social justice project. The energies have not been more supported in this area since I began my personal journey in 2005. I am excited to us all become more empowered and living more authentically in our truth. 
Here are a couple great links I found recently that resonate similar messages to what many of you have been hearing me say over the past several months. Enjoy.
2018 Tip:
  • The gut check. Never doubt the gut. Science tells how the body naturally creates a physiological response that tends to affect the gut. So if it doesn't feel right in the gut, don't do it. Your gut will never lie you or let ego get in the way. So the goal for 2018, is to trust and master the gut checks.
Remember, 2018 is a BIG year, and it is a year of opportunity if your utilize your energies effectively.

As always, let me know if what I wrote resonates with you as I write from my own personal observations, experiences, and messages I receive from the divine. I do my best to keep things real to best guide you on your path. 

Together ... Let's make 2018 an incredible year of miracles and dreams that come true.

Happy New Year.

Be safe.

Thank you for being a part of my journey

With love and appreciation,

Laura.

Cosmic What? What You Need To Know Moving Into The 2017 Waves Of Energetic Change

Laura at the San Diego Zoo (c) 2016 All Rights Reserved
As we close out the year, we can sit back and reflect on all the growth and changes we have made throughout the year. As difficult as the year has been for many, we are, nonetheless, still here for a reason. If you are reading this, you were meant to.

So right now we are at the completion of 2016, and with it our last period of mercury retrograde which so many people look at and dread. Everything is a matter on how you choose to react and perceive things. I choose to work with these energies for what they are intended for such as what I call the “re” effect like reflection, redoing, readjustment, relaxation, revamping, realignment, repairing, etc. I have personally been reflecting all month on where I was, where I am, what work I still have to do, and where I am going.

All year we have been met with some very exciting times for soul and human growth, combined with what may appear as extreme smack downs. No one ever said healing was a pleasant journey, but it is a worthwhile one that can lead to all of what your soul desires.

As a matter of fact, healing can down right be painful and exhausting giving glimpses of questioning life and our faith. However, somehow, we manage to push through the barriers and search for that rainbow at the end of the storm that just wreaked havoc in our lives.  It is through our greatest adversities where we find the greatest gifts.

Just like the life of the caterpillar that transforms into the beautiful butterfly, the journey in the cocoon is quite ugly. Yet, the caterpillar still chooses to cocoon and continue onto the journey.

Can you relate to this at all so far?  If you are unsure if this makes sense, let me elaborate through my personal experience and story and hope it helps give you some clarity.

MY STORY:


When this year began, I was excited about the path I was leading, but suddenly I was met with what my human self aka ego would perceive as extreme setbacks with the surprise of not only an ending, but severing of several very close relationships, one being with my children.  This was extremely difficult for me and made me reevaluate, question, and at times beg for divine intervention to help me move past the crap that I had endured especially in regards to a previous abusive 10 year marriage that ended 10 years ago, but his abusive pursuits only stopped in the last 2 years.

It was hard, and many of my writings and public speeches discussed some these experiences not to air my stuff, but to help others who may be experiencing similar know they are not alone and what to do. As I continued to release, let go, continued my meditation and reiki practice, and work with my divine team, my faith was slowly being restored.

My experiences this past January were far from glorifying, but outright painful as I was forced to look at all the painful traumas in this life, generationally, and karmicly all at the same time. With all that I knew and all my training to date, I was not sure I would make it to be honest.

My physical body began to amplify some disturbing symptoms from:
  • Sleep issues
  • Extreme irregular menses
  • Extreme almost hemorrhagic uterine bleeding
  • Re-emergence of PTSD symptoms such as flashbacks, fear, worry, nightmares, and more.
  • Severe pelvic pain and lower back pain 
  • Ringing in my ears
  • Weight gain
  • Severe anxiety
  • Severe fatigue
  • Vocal strains
  • Bizarre instances of choking
  • Fluttering in heart area
  • Periods of inability to move
These are just some of what I experienced to name a few. All of the doctors could not explain the cause of my symptoms. However, my divine team kept reassuring me that things will begin to improve by mid-June. I work both in the spiritual realm, but also the holistic health realm with a background in western healthcare. So when I go to a western medical doctor, I already have a clue as to the cause of my symptoms, being a combination of spiritual ascension symptoms as well as adrenal stress from years of PTSD fight or flight. However, my goal is to try to get my western medical teams to prove me wrong.
(c) 2016 Laura Healing With Spirit

So needless to say, as the months went on, I stayed on the path best I could as instructed by my divine team since my western medical team could not find a cause for any of my variety of symptoms. The only treatment was a hysterectomy and medications to mask the cause or numb the cause that they did not know was the issues. All my tests to that point have been negative.

By mid-May, my lower pelvic and back pain escalated as well as my bleeding where I bled heavily for over 30 days straight so much so I hemorrhaged a few days prior to me flying out for my continued Jikiden Reiki training. I sought out medical attention and had physical exam, blood work and ultrasound. All NORMAL.

The day after, my symptoms began to improve. That date was key and my spiritual guides reminded me of the significance because I began doubting that things would improve by mid-June. How could they if I am seemingly getting worse? That date in May was the anniversary of a very traumatic event. My physical body was trying to release it. It just needed my help emotionally, mentally and spiritually to help it do so.

I knew once I went out for my training program, things might get a little worse if I was right all along that this is a spiritual cleansing and karmic healing. And it did. So much so that my teacher instructed me to see a Tibetan doctor known for treating the Dali Lama. I did as requested. For the first time in years, a doctor confirmed my suspicions, but recommended additional dietary and herbal supplement changes on top on my routines. 

So like everything else, things came in waves. With each wave, I did my best to do some introspection as to what is coming to the surface to be let go of. Some things have been easier to release than others. That is our human side, but especially the traumatized human side fearful of change despite what you already know.

My spiritual practice and personal life have been significantly improved. The quality of individuals of who I surround myself with have improved. Some of the things I have been working on for over 10-11years have finally manifested. So it appeared that I was finally at home stretch. 

Cape Cod with Laura communing in nature 2016
Not

so

fast …

So just before the holiday, my small dog that I use as a therapy dog was attacked by a domestic dog. On top of this, I was hit with the massive cosmic energies that were bombarding the Earth plane since Thanksgiving which zapped me energetically as I was forced into slow motion for a few days. Again, the cosmic shifting forced me to address old stuff and strong emotions like anger that had risen for the first time in many many years. At the time I did not realize this, but later understood that if anger emerged, that was a very old emotion. This means I am closer than I realize to where I need to be.

In regards to the dog attack, the irony here is the night before we came in contact with a coyote, but no incidence. We have come in contact with a coyote by itself at least a dozen times and on 2 occasions with a pack, with no incidence in recent years. I have chosen to learn to live in harmony with these magical beings that some like to call vermin. I am not na├»ve as I take precautions when I am out especially at night. It starts with awareness and vigilance. I do not fear the coyote so it does not smell fear on me. I one time chased one with my dog in my arms just to let him know who’s the alpha dog around here.

So I was stunned that what appeared to be a nice domestic dog would just attack and rip my dog’s head open. However, then I remind myself the state of the cosmic energies and planetary alignment. So instead of getting mad or upset at that moment, I chose to reflect and even felt bad for the other dog as to what happened to it for it to feel the need to attack especially to attack a dog used as a therapy dog.

At one point, I was extremely emotional wondering if she would need surgery to repair a salivary gland as she began to make a turn for the worse the day after Christmas. That day I began a regimen of adding turmeric to her food, reiki, community prayers. Within two days, her wound is suddenly improved and no surgery required as of yet. So what is the lesson here this time? What is it that I am supposed to learn?

When I asked that question to my divine team as I was leaving the surgeons office, I heard “magic” and “miracles”. Sometimes these setbacks although can be very exhausting, labor intensive, and draining, forces you to stick to what you’ve learned and trained for all these years since you left your abuser finally in 2006. This was a validation of the power of holistic treatments and community prayer. 

Now I filled you with all of the "what went wrong" scenarios. What went right? When I spoke about my challenges publicly, I occasionally spoke about the affects of the changing energies on the human body especially with those inflicted with trauma and how to deal with it.

During my big event in January, I had countless people come up to me to tell me how inspired they are and I deepened their understandings in their own lives. Later, when I spoke about some of my own traumas and what I did holistically and spiritually to heal,I will never forget the young man who if I were to judge looked like he walked straight out of a gang. I was scared that day to talk about a subject matter of a trauma I never talked about before, but spirit kept insisting to do. So,  I did.  This young man approached me afterwards and told me he could not thank me enough. He just went to an AA meeting a few days prior and disclosed some of the traumas he endured for the first time and by witnessing my strength, gave him courage to stay clean and gave him hope. 

I have countless emails, feedbacks, and more that I have received over the year from so many people, that it made what I was doing so worth while and reassuring that I was and am on the right path even when I doubted myself. By talking about my journey and sharing it, I was keeping it real. I was keeping it authentic.

Other amazing things happened in moments of the divine such as experiences with hawk, bald eagle, osprey, coyote, and more. The messages were profound and reassuring.


 Lessons of 2016:

So for 2016, we close out a chapter that primarily focused on the previous 10 years. This year I was taught to have a little more faith and trust since it was stripped from me, and each of these events were difficult, but also reassuring that things are happening for a higher purpose. This is what I learned:

  • To take my power back from especially abusive, narcissistic, sociopathic individuals. And I did not do it the way the human logical brain would expect you to do it either. My explanation on that will come at another time.
  • Help from the divine does happen, and many times leave you signs to let you know they are there or as confirmations you are on the right track. 
  • How well we partner with our soul. 
  • How well we surrender and trust in the divine. 
  • How well we let go of control of the things that are making us sick even if ego says not to let go, but the gut says yes. 
  • How well we choose the right people who are in vibrational alignment with us not the ones we empathize so deeply for we end up sacrificing ourself so much it is harmful to us physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and financially. 
  • How well we institute the RIGHT self-care practices that address the whole mind, body, and spirit. 
  • To invest in our well-being for no other reason so we can shine our inner light brighter. This is not for superficial means for superficial instant gratification either. 
  • How well we do not reach for a pill first or external fix for an internal problem that will only mask or create a band aid effect temporarily. Eventually, you will need to deal with your junk.
  • Learning to slow down a bit. 
  • Learning to shut off the noise and propagandas shoved in our faces daily by those living in lower vibrations refusing to change or on a path driven by ego and greed. 
  • How well we raise our vibrations in times of crisis.
  • How well we stay in vibrational alignment with our truth and purpose.

So what is in for us in 2017?


I anticipate a rocky transition for some due to the cosmic climate. The year 2017 is a one year in numerology. What does that mean? Either you have been doing your work or not, that is up to you and your higher self. Next year is the year for new beginnings with a new cosmic cycle.

So you have a choice to write not only a new chapter in your book, but write a whole new book altogether. What do you choose? Are you going to write a new book or are you going to keep relooking and staying stuck in the last book you have read how many times?

I feel 2017 will focus us on two areas … our internal environment and spiritual development and the awakening of more truths combined with many external events we need to address and not bury our heads in the sand.
One of the signs Laura ususally receives from Spirit is hearts.

I anticipate the energies to still feel like massive waves of various energies hitting us at various rates and intensities as we enter 2017 while we continue to have our physical bodies, emotional and mental bodies, and spiritual bodies adjust. These adjustments or recalibrations from my perspective are not only the cosmic vibrations to a higher dimension that is actually altering our very DNA structure, but affects how we balance the needs of the physical self with the needs of the spiritual self.

I feel it will take a few months depending on where you are at in your spiritual development to feel less rocky waves and a period of calmness. I feel the cosmic climate may also feel a little strange as we shift in between dimensional worlds depending on what sign you are and where you are at in your spiritual development. We may feel lapses in time, accelerations or time warps. Mood shifts or erratic behaviors may amplify and seem weird or out of the blue. As always, I say with preparation and awareness, you can shift your reactions and therefore, shift your results.

However, I caution, that the more your internal world is creating more peace and balance, you will be more awake than ever and certain truths if have not already been revealed, will continue to reveal themselves. When this happens it might not look pretty. Just like Keanu Reeves waking up in the film the Matrix, certain external “events” will need your call to action. I suggest you begin aligning yourself with an agenda to be a part of whether it be the homeless, “water is life” Dapl movement, human rights, affordable health, sustainable renewable energy, GMO, or the like as I feel these are all areas under attack that are asking you to choose your battle.

The peace you are developing within is also aligning you to a greater consciousness … and unity which is where the greatest power of all lies … Universal LOVE. It is from this place, you will become the greatest instrument of change.

There is NO greater power than the Universe itself. With that power you have ying/yang or in this case the power of love/fear. The next 10 years of the evolution of consciousness and how we all align will determine the fate of all humanity. Mother Earth has been asking for us to align with her. Many have heard her call. However, many also need to heed her warnings.

We can start today. On top of what I mentioned we can choose if we buy water from a company who aids in polluting our waters. We can choose to buy foods that are not the equivalent to eating arsenic making us ill. We can choose to shop and support your local farmer and retailer. We can choose to not put our monies in big banks that fund the destruction of our very resources that keep us alive and into smaller local banks or credit unions. We can choose to invest in energies that are better for our planet. We can choose to do random acts of kindness. We can choose to live in a more eco-friendly sustainable environment. Some of these take time, but at least it is a start.

Miracles do happen to those who believe. Never forget that. See the hawk feather below? This is one of many signs Spirit gives me daily to guide me or to reassure me that I am on the right path.  

It is important to keep the faith. Stay focused, and count our blessings not matter how difficult things may appear. New beginnings are just around the corner. It is time to spread your wings like the butterfly.

The Butterfly story


I heard this story about the butterfly and found it so profound, I want to share with you. I can not recall the source and will do my best to tell the story in hopes you find it equally as profound.

One day, this girl saw this caterpillar in her yard and she stopped for a moment to stare at it. She was neither disgusted nor in awe by this little creature. She was just curious as she watched it munch away on a leave of a plant in her yard. She thought she would help it by gathering more leaves to feed it. She got a little discouraged that it did not eat anything she had left for it. She was worried it was not eating enough.

On day she returned, and saw it was dangling from a branch, and did not know what to think. So for that day she left it alone. The next day she returned to check on her new caterpillar friend to see is struggling so hard inside this encasement, and it worried her so much. She ran home to tell her mother, but mom said not to bother.

The little girl was all frantic, and she was afraid for the little caterpillar and felt the need to save it somehow. So she found a knife and went back to check on her caterpillar friend once again, and it appeared to be violently struggling inside this encasement. Her pulse began to rise. Her breathing began to become rapid, and she began to panic. She thought to herself, that there must be something she can do to save the caterpillar.

So she did what she thought was the next best thing, she cut open the encasement to free her caterpillar from all the struggle. A very wet wing not fully developed fell out as well as what appeared to be a newly forming butterfly. The butterfly fell out and onto the ground. It attempted to move its very wet not fully formed wings, but could not.

The little girl wept, not knowing what to do. All she wanted was to help the little caterpillar so it did not have to be in pain or struggle so hard in that encasement. She thought what she was doing was trying to save it from its pains and struggles, but instead, the butterfly died as it was not fully developed and ready to fly.

Just like the caterpillar needed to make what may appear as a violent, painful struggle to become the caterpillar, so do our human souls.

It is time to complete the transformation and become the butterfly we were all meant to be. Are you ready?



The choice is yours to make. The Universe can keep giving you signs til you  are blue in the face, but at the end of the day, it is you that must make the first step.

If we learn to surf these crazy energetic waves of change instead of fearing what wave will hit us next, we not only raise our vibration, but create the change and bring more joy.

There's a Buddhist saying about mastering the art of calm in the middle of the storm.
Together, we can make a better world. Here is our chance. The choice is yours to make.

Honoring The Sacredness of Water and Why the Events At Standing Rock Matter For the Evolution of Humanity and Our Souls

October 13, 2016

BY; Laura Joseph, Healing With Spirit, Spiritual Medium, Speaker, Healer, Author

Excerpts from Lecture Sunday, October, 16, 2016 at The First Spiritualist Church of RI

What a ride this year has given us especially on the emotional plane. Many of us have been experiencing sudden bursts of unexplainable anxiety and may feel quite ungrounded. Maybe the seeds we planted have not sprouted as we’d like or maybe they are smothered by worry and fear or maybe you are not able to see what is growing. How many of you have been worrying whether or not you are good enough or lovable enough or deserving enough?

Please know we are in the journey together and you are not alone. I chose the topic of water and spirituality for many reasons. We are all undergoing a great change including Mother Earth as we shift from the third dimension to the fourth and fifth dimension. The veil of illusion is lifting. These changes are happening at such and incredible rate causing physical changes to happen with the body itself.

Our planet is transmutating and so are we …. Our bodies, our souls, our cells. The coding that was imprinted in our DNA structures is currently being activated. This is your blueprint back to the ancients.

Many religions and spiritual practices include water in their ceremonial and ritualistic practices and we are going to talk about this topic in light of what is currently happening in this material world and how it affects us spiritually.

Why this topic? There are many reasons, but here are four:
  1. In light of recent historic events occurring at Standing Rock with the largest gathering of "water protectors" 
  2. This weekend's full moon is currently in Aries and how it affects us now 
  3. Ending of cycles and beginning a new – This year being a 9 year in numerology and what this means for our soul growth.
  4. Water as being sacred.
There is so much going on right now and we can choose to either get sucked into the chaos or rise above it. How many of you are appalled at the state of what is happening in this country and around the world most notably pronounced is the US Presidential election?

How are you doing emotionally? Regardless of the current political environment.

Have any lessons risen up for you this year but especially over the last month or so?

Right now we have an opportunity. However, we need to shift our perspective in order to shift our results. This is like fine tuning a musical instrument or making carburetor adjustments to your vehicle.

We can choose to focus on the doom and gloom out of fear or we can choose to create change through the frequency and vibration of love.
Hate? Worry? Intolerance? Depression? Those are all fear based. Joy? Happiness? Authentic truth? Compassion? Consciousness? Those are all love based. If you have ever read or studied "Abraham" Hicks and Eckhart Tolle, both have been great spiritual teachers on the mastery of vibrational alignment. Which vibration are you currently vibrating in? Which vibration do you choose to be in?

Why is water so important? Why is honoring our water needed and important to our human self as well as our spiritual self? What can water teach us to help us evolve spiritually?
Before I address the importance, we must first take inventory and take personal responsibility for where are currently at in our lives. I know this is not an easy task for many as we must face head on our shadow self and all the junk attached. In some cases, this can be triggering for those traumatized as a result of situations such as war, violence, or domestic abuse. As a survivor of abuse with a history of PTSD, I sympathize.

However, this is the time to step up and take action. The Universe has been giving us signs and has been supporting all of us who have been called to light the way for others to find their way home and help save our wounded Mother. Water is key. So hang on for the divine reinforcements and help. It is a matter of trust, surrender and belief.

Water has many spiritual meanings and implications, but most importantly water reflects its sacredness. It represents the “circulation of life”. Water is to our Mother Earth just as the blood that flows through our veins is to our physical bodies. Water is the very life force for which gives birth to life. No wonder NASA and other organizations are searching for signs of life through water on other planets.

Our bodies are made up of mostly water making water vital for human survival. “According to Dr. Jeffrey Utz, Neuroscience, pediatrics, Allegheny University, different people have different percentages of their bodies made up of water. Babies have the most, being born at about 78%. By one year of age, that amount drops to about 65%. In adult men, about 60% of their bodies are water.”[1]

Water also has some symbolic significance relating to purity and fertility as the source of life as seen in many creation myths.

In Taoist tradition, water is viewed as an aspect of wisdom. Here, the concept is the philosophy that water takes the path of least resistance. The path of least resistance is part of nature. We see this with rivers which flows around rocks and mountains while slowing shaping the landscape. Hence, the element of patience to create change.

Coy Right 2014-2016 Healing With Spirit
“Water is one of the five elements, and can manifest as yin or yang: flowing water, ice, or steam. It flows and finds its way into all places. This is seen in the Dao de Ching, which says the highest good  is like water. The best of man is like water, giving life to all things, it flows in places that men reject. So, it is like the dao. All streams flow to the sea because it is lower than they are, humility gives it power. Think about that.”[2]

The Greeks also understood the transitions of water manifesting as liquid, solid, or vapor. It is the epitomal symbol for metamorphosis and philosophical recycling.

Native Americans considered water a valuable commodity especially in the plain states. They revered water as the symbol of life.

We have been experiencing and baring witness to a great transition and/or transformation that we have not seen in hundreds of years. Right now our wounds fresh or old have been resurfacing this year. This may be the most difficult task you are to experience on this earth. However, the life you seek is not found by avoiding the past or avoiding the hurts and pains associated with it. Healing comes from letting the pains of the past go knowing this is right for your path.

Remember, it is only through resistance do we grow and truly move forward. When we avoid issues, the Universe keeps sending them back for review. This is not to punish you. Please do not misunderstand.

Right now we have the current full moon in the fiery sign of Aries. Now I am far from being called an astrology expert, and consider myself quite weak in the astrology realms. However, I do understand cosmic cycles and energy shifts and I feel, witness and understand patterns. Today’s energies are a reflective of a great time to exert a little more faith and courage. The divine within is with you.

We are currently being showered with divine healing love which if you have not noticed is greatly needed at this time. It is all about how we choose to focus. We CAN choose to be receptive to this divine healing bringing us closer towards greater harmony or we can choose to stay in the shadows of fear and doubt.

In India, today’s full moon is associated with the Hindu goddess of wealth and prosperity, Lakshmi. What a great opportunity we have here to allow Lakshmi’s divine feminine infuse the healing energies of the full moon to detoxify and create a flow of abundance. If you have been feeling unsure, now is the prime opportunity to bathe in the moon. Stop trying to control the outcomes and expectations and just receive. You just might find you will get what you are seeking without all the resistance and stress.

In tarot, water is symbolized in the suit of cups. The suit of cups is symbolic of emotion, intuition, and interconnected flow of energy between all things alive.

Water is essential to our very existence. It is no wonder the symbolism is far reaching and profoundly deep. The wisdom of water is infinite and significant to our current times.

Water and spirituality as you can see go hand and hand. Many religions and spiritually based practices include water in many ceremonies, prayers, meditative practices, and rituals.

Water is a very powerful element with the potential to heal or destroy on many levels. Water is very amiable. When stressed simply wash your hands of negativity. Now increase the temperature and make it hot. This adds the fire element. Let the fire and water help you release all those is no longer of service for your highest and best. Once released, cool the water back down for a more regenerative vibrations.

Things you can do NOW … today

  1. Shift perspective. – Inside environment. Healing is internal not external
  2. Rain – when it comes, instead of creating the vibration of oh my word, it is raining now my plans are ruined etc. Bless the rain for it brings life.
  3. Do you own internal work – Change begins with us by the frequency and vibration we put out. That is the true virus. Is your vibration of fear or love?
  4. Self care, self care, self care – self compassion, and soul-fillment
  5. Personal responsibility
  6. Be like water

The power of the sacred waters runs within each of us.
Among all the chaos, we see the greatest opportunity for unity and soul growth.

This is a historic moment backed by prophecies with the unity of hundreds of tribes from US, Canada, Central America, Hawaii, South America all in the Dakotas in Standing Rock BE-ing the water protectors. This is the largest gathering of its kind in more than a century.

There’s a large camp growing with focus on prayer and creating solutions including people pulling money out of the big banks that are supporting the pipeline. We have a chance here. This is a historic event, and Mother Earth is making it known.

Mother Earth is alive and breathing whether or not you choose to believe that or not. We need to listen to her as she does communicate with us. The current transmutation process we are all experiencing will help strengthen the ties. We need to see and listen and respect the land and water as sacred.

I believe the current recent events and especially Standing Rock is our chance. Don’t focus on the hurricane we are in, but the rainbow and sun that follows.

What we all have been experiencing this year is due to the increased energies vibrating at a higher frequency. Our physical bodies are trying to catch up speeding up our molecular structure. Some may be experiencing a spiritual flu so to speak wishing when it will end. Our bodies are learning to evolve and adapt to the new frequencies creating in some cases energy overloads as the physical body attempts to maintain it’s natural state of homeostasis or in simple terms, balance.

So be gentle with yourself as you go through these changes. Focus on healing the emotional and mental bodies which is again symbolic with the element of water. BE like water. Create the vibrational alignment between your heart, mind, and spirit. Step into your role as co-creator within the Universal Laws. Create the frequency and vibration of love, and let it begin to vibrate out to the external world and the rest of the cosmos. This will help us uncover our true passions that lead to the evolution and growth of our souls.

Faith is so important here. I know we have all been tested. I believe the reason many people never see the Universe working in their lives is because they gave up too soon. They did not hang in there long enough for the Universe to manifest.

Quitting is not an option. If we choose to quit on the Universe, then we inherently believe it’s all up to us alone and we will be like the hamster on the wheel never getting off. We are never alone. As a testament to many great spiritualist mediums who prove every day the continuity of life and the divine presence of Angels, guides, and Ascended Masters.

Remember, this is a 9 year in numerology. We are at the home stretch of completing this cycle. Clear, purge, ground, balance, and align yourself with your higher self so the year 2017 creates a strong foundation for the next 10 years of the life you wish to create.

I will end with this quote from Bruce Lee: Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way round or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves. Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water my friend.”
