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.

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.

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.
Do you see the heart? This was taken in Maine

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.

meditative walk in Maine. (c) 2016 All Rights Reserved.

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.

Death Is Merely A Transformation ...

PHOTO: (c)2014 Laura Healing With Spirit; Tyngsboro, MA
 
#MessageFromSpirit: "Death is merely a transformation, and shedding of the old and reborn a new. There have been many changes happening around you ... externally, internally, and spiritually over the last several weeks and months. For some, this was like ship sailing in smooth waters. For others, it may have felt like the hurricane of a lifetime. You have been experiencing what a caterpillar experiences inside a cocoon. We have shredded a lot of the old and our fears so the new may emerge. We have merely experienced the natural process of the dying with many changes of a very deep inner transformation. Be open and be ready for the butterfly to emerge from the cocoon. We are here to guide you. We are here to help you. We hear your struggles. We cannot assist you unless you fully and completely surrender to receive the help and guidance to assist you in your divine purpose."

These messages from spirit and photographs are designed for the purpose of sharing the messages of hope and healing. Please share this message with those who need it. Have a blessed day. 

Namaste.

REFLECTIONS -

Funny how life works ... sitting here at Blue Hills thinking about how hard things have been over the last 10yrs for me, my family and many other wonderful people I know and all the beautiful surprises that are beginning to emerge. I am sharing this not to get sympathy, but to show that no matter how dire life can seem, anything can change in a moment if we have faith.

I was VERY successful in many past endeavours which in light of recent exciting events have been getting much reflection lately. However, some of my greatest challenges surfaced over the passed 4yrs w a brutal narcissistic abusive ex who has been relentless in attempts to destroy my life at all costs ... and at a calculatable financial loss of over $600k. I can not control what he chooses to do. However, I can choose my reactions to his grievous and malicious actions.

Through these very difficult life lessons with a karmic past, I was forced to close a very successful health and wellness business and later laid off from teaching at a wonderful college with some of the most amazing people I have ever met. I have never had so many obstacles in life and career as I have since 2006 all as a result of NOT listening to my gut and marrying the wrong person. At times, losing faith that things would turn around.

The pendulum has swung. The Phoenix has risen. And karma is quite angry. As the saying goes, every dog gets their day. I am still waiting, but I grow more hopeful every day.

Of coarse I had to deal with these aweful things, and struggled many times trying to find ways to not let things out of my control, control my life and destroy all the successful potentials I had to offer life. I went back to my roots. Accepted certain gifts I have ... many I am still working on accepting my abilities and talents. ... Opened myself to ALL opportunities before me regardless of restrictions ... confronted and overcame many fears (still working on many) . .. and stayed connected to my spirituality. .. The gutters have been cleaned, scrubbed, and ready for the water to flow freely once again through the channels of success in the spring.

I am grateful for all the blessings and surprised opportunities that have been rising over the passed few months. Many of these including celebrity events, charity events, volunteer movie set opportunities. However, the greatest opportunity was having the courage to come out of the closet regarding my psychic mediumship abilities which have been utilized in the past to some degree to help me in my work in health care with analysis, treatment, and patient care as well as my teaching style in the college, helping other victims of abuse to heal, my church, my spirituality and elsewhere.

I am even MOST grateful for those individuals who have entered into my life during the darkest of my days. Yet became my friend, supported me, and loved me unconditionally without judgement. You all know who you are. I am grateful. All the wonderful transformations happening in my life now, I owe to you. I love you all and hopes I can be there for each and every one of you as you have for me. I have never felt more like me again as I have over the past few months.

Thank you all and thank you spirit for finally placing my life back on track.

The Ripple Effect and Spirituality

By: Laura from Healing With Spirit 9/29/12  (From a lecture given at the First Spiritualist Church of RI)



How many of you liked to skip stones when you are a kid? How many of you still like to skip stones? How many still actually do it?

We are all here for a reason today in this wonderful church. But have you actually stopped to think what brought you here? Have you actually stopped to think about what is spirituality and what it means to you? 

Spirituality is a belief that focuses on one’s understanding of natural law enabling the person to discover his/her inner path of being and it is an integral aspect of many religious experiences such as Spiritualism.

Wikipedia definition:  "Spirituality in this context may be a matter of nurturing thoughts, emotions, words, and actions that are in harmony with the belief that everything in the universe is mutually dependent; this stance has much in common with some versions of Buddhist spirituality. A modern definition is as follows: Spirituality exists wherever we struggle with the issues of how our lives fit into the greater scheme of things. This is true when our questions never give way to specific answers or give rise to specific practices such as prayer and meditation. We encounter spiritual issues every time we wonder where the universe comes from, why we are here, or what happens when we die. We also become spiritual when we become moved by values such as beauty, love, or creativity that seem to reveal a meaning or power beyond our visible world. An idea or practice is ‘spiritual’ when it reveals our personal desire to establish a felt-relationship with the deepest meanings of powers governing life.”

In Spiritualism, there is a fundamental belief in the continuation of life after the change called death as well as the personal responsibility for life’s circumstances.

With that said, in order to understand spirituality or spiritualism, you must first understand the human being and the ripple effects we create.

As human beings, we are energy in a physical body that creates energetic vibrations. 

What allows your heart to pump blood throughout your body? Do you honestly know? Think about it before you read on…. What actually triggers your heart to contract that enables it to pump blood throughout the human body to nourish every tissue and cell? Have you figured it out yet? If not, that is ok. I will explain. Whether you call it God’s gift … the Universe’s Gift …Nature’s mastery…. you have two mini self generating electrical power plants in your heart called the SA node and AV node, otherwise known as the sinoatrial node and the atrial node. They self generate electrical impulses that stimulate the heart the contract and pump the blood throughout the human body. Now think about that. How amazing is that? You have a perfect natural machine like the engine in your car filtering and pumping the nutrient your body needs to stay alive. Have you ever wondered why we need two electrical paddles to stimulate the heart while jump starting the heart?

Everything we do, feel, see, hear, touch, happens due to an electrical impulse that triggered and sent to the brain for the interpretation of sight, sound, touch, etc.

When we understand the fundamental basis of our beings as energy and a one electrical conduction system, we can attune ourselves to be in vibrational alignment with the universe.
Remember I started off asking you about whether or not you like to skip stones? I am going to now explain why I asked that question. 

Think dropping a pebble into the serene glasslike pond. What happens to the pebble? … It creates ripples.

Now what if your friend next to you drops a pebble into that same pond? It also creates a ripple.

What happens to your ripple? To their ripple? They eventually collide.

And depending on whose pebble that was dropped into the pond was larger will determine the magnitude and impact of the collision and whose ripple creates a greater effect. The vibrational alignment, just like sound can alter the tranquility of the water.

If our mind and body are as clear and smooth like glass on a lake, be careful what you toss in. Just like a pebble being tossed, you have the ability to create a small symmetrically balanced ripple effect with little disturbance to the overall lake. As it travels it magnifies in size the farther away it is from the original source but does so in a smooth fashion.

Now if you toss a boulder, the ripple can create what? An unbalanced volatile rocky big ripples in the lake that can take a much longer time for the lake to recover and restore itself to that quiet serene glass like appearance. So now these volatile ripples also magnify as it travels outward as well.

I challenge you to an experiment. Print this article out and keep with you when you do the experiment. Go out and toss the pebble into a lake. Watch what happens. Then toss a boulder into the lake and watch what happens. Then toss two pebbles similar in size and watch what happens. I encourage you to take notes on this experiment as to what you observe when you do this. I would be honored if you choose to write in the comments below your results and what you witnessed and what was revealed to you that you learned about yourself.

Just like the pebble or boulder, what you sent outward, goes out like ripples in the water and magnifies as it travels. 

Your attitude – Creates ripples

Your body language – Creates ripples

Your actions and reactions – creates ripples

Your words – creates ripples

Your thoughts – Creates ripples

Your feelings – creates ripples

So be careful what ripples you allow in and be careful what ripples you put out or send out.

Are your ripples positive or negative?

Negative ripples can give you a feeling like your finger is stuck in an electrical outlet … a sense of being fried and exhausted that you feel you really cannot explain or do not know how to explain.

Positive ripples have more of a feeling of being in vibrational alignment with yourself and the universe … Like a free flowing balanced energy source.

If you are not in vibrational alignment, begin by building a sense of awareness. What do I mean by that?

To build a sense of awareness, you need to become intimately aware of your inner self and your surroundings using all of your senses.

Understand you cannot change what you can not acknowledge so you must begin here.

When you begin to master the sense of awareness, you choose the vibrations you are sending out. By keeping your vibrations high, you begin to start to enjoy life and begin to understand that it is possible to achieve your goals that you have been struggling so hard to accomplish. You start to create a surge of positive energy affecting everything around you.

For everything to change in your life, it starts with the self. Just as in spiritualism, you must take responsibility for your own life. It is a matter of yin and yang and the natural laws.

If your vibrations are low or you are exhibiting negative ripples, an avalanche affect can occur causing you to tumble into lower forms of consciousness and inferior ways of thinking. In many cases, you may be subconsciously self-sabotaging everything good you strive in your life without even realizing you are doing it. Just stop and think about that for a moment and digest what that really means.

So if your life is filled with fear, anger, and negativity and you perpetually live in that environment, this will eventually lead to dis-ease of all areas in your mind, body, and spirit. Your life will continue to spiral down unless you make a conscious decision right here … right now to change. The past is the past and can breed depression. The future has not happened yet and can breed anxiety and stress. All you have is the now so just be happy.

If your life is surrounded by lower vibrations, meaning your environment, you are allowing yourself to have these negative lower vibrational ripples impact and collide with your energetic core and your life. As a result, you will eventually cease to see yourself in a self loving, self nurturing, and balanced way. Someone once told me that if you are told you “no good” for so long and it is drilled into you, you start to believe it. In abuse, they call that “gaslighting”.

By mastering the art of awareness, you can self-correct your patterns of thinking and behaviors. Hence changing the kind of ripple effect you are sending out and receiving.

As we think of ourselves and others, we send out vibrational ripples in frequencies. We must nurture our inner child with self love, appreciation and gratitude. By doing so, the ripples we create, send out are of… love, appreciation and gratitude.

Spirit is always around us, and with spirit’s guidance, you have the ability to create endless ripples with a positive impact in your life and the lives of others. The choice is yours to make.

So I will leave you with a few thoughts and questions to ponder. 

What does spiritualism mean to you and how does spirituality fit in your life?

What ripples are you creating right now … during this very moment?

What thought just passed through your head? Were your thoughts loving, compassionate, nurturing, healing and positive vibrationally aligned? … Or not?

Begin with building a sense of awareness. Choose a path for a self discovery of your inner being and a journey to enlightenment. Connect with spirit for guidance and help along the journey. Keep your life filled with love and compassion. And remember the pebble in the pond and the impacts it creates.

“I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.” ― Mother Teresa

How are you going to change the kind of ripples you are allowing to impact you as well as change the kind of ripples you send out?

The Year 2014 in Review With 2015 Ushering In Opportunity

PHOTO: www.wallpaperglow.com
 
WOW what a year it has been. Many may even label 2014 as "crazy".   However, when we take a moment to pause and reflect on everything we experienced in 2014, we realize this past year was key to preparing us for the next phase in our life.   
 
There is no doubt the energies have been intense this past year with all the solar flares, cosmic shifts, and global volatility with many of us experiencing a grand spiritual awakening or metamorphosis affecting us on all planes - physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.  

 
As we are nearing the end of 2014, you may feel a big sigh with a realization we survived the wild roller coaster ride as we learned, balanced, purged, surrendered, allowed, and metamorphosized like never before in preparation for the next chapter of our life to begin in 2015. 

 
As human beings, we tend to be resistant to change. And when we resist the change, we encounter more difficult lessons, and more difficult transitions. This is not to diminish that 2014 was definitely a challenging year with enormous volatility. All you have to do is turn on the television to see all the chaos, loss, political corruption, corporate greed, confusion, and divisions happening across the globe.

 
Many lessons have been learned over the year. Many themes seemed to have emerged. So what have we learned in 2014?
  • We learned the art of surrender and accepting what is.  When we accept what is and surrender to the Universe, we open new doors, new chapters and invite into our lives miracles and abundance. This includes letting go people, places, or even things that no longer serve us for our highest and best. 
  • Many of us have experienced the feeling of losing control in all aspects of our lives at some point. What we learned in the process was learning to let go what we cannot control and surrender our fears and control to the Universe, because in the end, we are never in control.
  • We walked in the valley of fear, and confronted it head on. By doing so, we realized we are a lot stronger than we believed we ever were.
  • By practicing forgiveness and taking personal responsibility, we let go resistance and open ourselves up for change. 
  • In the process we learned about trust and faith. We learned to have more faith when it was challenged, and trust in the divine to assist us, guide us, and lift us up. 
  • We also learned we are more resilient that we believed. As a result, we learned to trust ourselves more.

We cannot add new things to our plate if it is filled with yesterday’s junk. Those who have succeeded in learning these lessons, may have felt a huge shift and weight lifted like a rubber band snap. When we follow our divine path, we honor ourselves.
 
The year 2015 is the year for opportunities. So what should we look forward to?
  • It's all about ... YOU ... the SELF
  • This is a year of breakthroughs. We have just been virtually kicked, beaten, and tossed to get to where we are at now.  It is crucial you keep the faith, your thoughts positive and above all, be kind to yourself.
  • We embrace the magic and self-empowerment. We just shed off many layers bringing us to our raw selves with lots of difficult lessons learned. We are now ready to reap the rewards of our efforts at an accelerated rate. 
  • The lessons of taking personal responsibility will continue as we evolve and change with all the cosmic shifts.
  • Another lesson to be mindful of as we transition into 2015, is about the balance between free will and divine intervention.  At the end of the day, we can know all the answers, and have the greatest intuitive insight, but it is up to us to choose what we do with this knowledge and changes.
 
For some, you may feel as if you are still in the midst of chaos. The Universe is asking you to remember that with chaos, comes new direction and new life. It is critical for you to stay positive and focused on where you are going and not on the chaos. The light will shine again.

The 2014 stormy weather is passing if it has not already past for you. Your will power and beliefs will be the driving force behind 2015. This is a time to choose faith and trust in the divine and conquer your fears once and for all. The Universe believes in you and waiting for you to let go enough to be your partner. Let’s complete this metamorphosis cycle like champions and begin 2015 together with a brand new exciting chapter. Above all, let’s enjoy this journey called life.

A Cardinal Message From Spirit

Written: April 9, 2013
PHOTO:  http://townofcanandaiguarepublicans.org/gallery/Spring_cardinal.JPG#sthash.MomE39Qj.dpuf

The time is 5:35 a.m. and the faint sounds of what could be thunder in the distance get my attention or could it be the sounds of the trash being picked up from the dumpster? The sound happens once more, but once again too faint to clearly identify. Then at approximately 5:55 a.m. a much louder repeated echoing boom happened. Ahhhhh the confirmation it was thunder.

One could take one road to the dark, dank, depressing side of the morning and say, “oh how I wish I were still in bed right now”. However, realizing the rain is required for the earth to flourish … for spring flowers to bloom … and for nourishment to all life, I embraced the rain.

As I begin to leave my home wondering if I was going to be stuck in a downpour, I remind myself that it is April 9th and it will be 70 degrees and sunny later on. So I smiled and left my house.

It is now 6:06 a.m. Amidst the dankness and drizzle appears, red cardinal to my right about 10 feet above me brightly displayed on a limb of a branch as if I were watching a black and white film with a red hand colored painted bird singing his song and bolstering his voice. As I walk by him, I am reminded and in awe of his beauty. I felt as if I were watching a movie reel, but instead of the bird was not moving, I was the one moving and watching him as I slowly walked to my car.

His voice was clearer and louder and more beautiful than all the other morning songs combined by the other birds. This is not the first time I have heard him as I hear him every morning. So why is this day different? It is how he presented himself to me, and in a way I knew without a doubt it was a message.

What does this all mean? Well, for you, it can mean something completely different. One thing I have learned over the years is that nature and the universe works in synchronicity with our lives and will always present messages to us if we dare to listen. You can do all your research you want and what others say a meaning is. However, in the end, the meanings are customized in your own language that you must learn to interpret.

Symbolically, the rain can be a reflection of emotions and can symbolize rebirth, sadness, or cleansing. What it means to you is different than what it means to me. For me, it is symbolic of cleansing and rebirth and to know I am safe and protected. It is also to remind me to call upon my angels and ascended masters more as confirmed by the times which in numerology are reflected by the four and five. The four is about the angels and the five is all about transition.

The rumble of thunder was to get my attention and to help me realize the inner power and strength I have to overcome this latest obstacle in my life. Thunder is symbolic of great energy and power and is also associated with Zeus, the god of all gods. Hearing the thunder in the background is a reminder to harness my inner energy and power.

We are nearing the end of one cycle and beginning a new as represented by the date, which in numerology is a ten number. It is also a time of spring which has a long history of spiritual significance throughout the world. Spring is a season symbolic of rebirth, resurrection, and a time when great confrontations and polarities occur in nature: darkness and light, death and rebirth. For me, it is an important stage of self-realization and empowerment and a reminder that the darkness is fading and light is returning.

The cardinal may be a small bird, but it is strong and rich in color and voice, which happen to be the strongest characteristics of this bird. Because this bird is a year round resident, it is associated with the number 12. This can mean a host of things from changes occurring within the next 12 days, 12 weeks, or 12 months; or it can mean communication. Since this was a male cardinal, it is associated with perseverance. Since I am female and if I were to call on the female cardinal inside, it would be associated with intuition.

The color of the cardinal is also very significant. Once again, what it means to you can be different from what it means to me. The bright red color has associations to the base chakra, to the Cardinals of the Catholic Church, and to the kundalini in yoga.

The message for me is a simple reminder to listen to my gut and rise above the situation no matter how dire it appears to me. The message is reminding me to see the bigger picture and sing loud enough for the whole world to hear me in a voice that is strong, confident, unwavering, and louder than all the other voices around me. Keep singing until someone hears me and never give up. It is time to activate the personal power within and leave behind all fears and excuses.

Considering the very challenging events that have transpired over the past two weeks, I am grateful to spirit for this day and for this confirmation message I needed to empower my strength and courage and quell my fears. Thank you for helping me walk the walk, speak my true voice, and have the strength and confidence to do so.

Namaste.

Learning to Ride the Storm


(c)2014 Laura Healing With Spirit
 
After every great storm, the Sun returns to shine. After every great storm comes the rainbow. After every big storm and rough surf comes fertile soil. With every big storm comes nature's pruning of unnecessary branches and debris.

 After every big storm comes green grasses. After every big storm comes beautiful big flowers. After every big storm comes the birds, the animals, and the emergence of life awakens.
 
The cycles in our life are no different than the cycles of nature. When we experience stormy weather things seemed unclear, cloudy, and at times destructive. It is during those times, we sometimes are unable to see the Sun behind the clouds or the rainbow in the sky or the new sprouts of plants preparing to emerge from the soil.
 
And as human beings we experience similar stormy weather such as rip tides, floods, hurricanes and devastation. However, it is during those times just like in nature, that we are clearing out the old, the sick, and the energies that is clogging up our abilities for the new to emerge into our life.

During this mercury retrograde, learn to enjoy the storm. Sit back and enjoy the ride. For once, it is time to get out of your own way and let the Universe lead the way to your higher calling.

Trusting During The Storm

Published October 23, 2014

(c) 2009 Nantasket Beach, MA Easter Weekend


The last 24 hours have been a doozy.

I don't know about you, but the energies have been quite the ride. The nor'easter that just blew through here was filled with chaos, wind, flooding, blinding rains, and debris.

It is very symbolic of all the clearing of the debris that is needed in our lives in order for us to move into the next phase of our lives. One of the lessons that I have learned in the past 24 hours, is the lessons of trusting the universe and the divine path that we are on.

This was an experience I witnessed first hand. By not caving into the fears and anxieties of the amazing changes occurring in my life, I communicated clearly. I trusted the messages the Universe was sending me, and now things are not only back on track, but I feel better than ever before.

Don't forget, we are still in mercury retrograde. So issues surrounding communication is paramount. We are also at a point in time where the cosmic shifts over the past several months are aligning us for what we are sent here to do to fulfill our divine purpose.

Challenge is, if you resist the changes, you may not see the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow so to speak.
 
What have you learned in the last 24 hours?

Has questioning trust come up in your life as well?

Please share your thoughts with me. I would love to know.

The 2014 Year of Grand Spiritual Metamorphosis and Transformation in Review

As we are nearing the end of 2014, you may feel a big sigh with a realization we survived the wild roller coaster ride as we learned, balanced, purged, surrendered, allowed, and metamorphosized like never before in preparation for the next chapter of our life to begin in 2015. Energies have been intense this past year between solar flares, cosmic shifts, and global volatility with many of us experiencing a grand spiritual awakening or metamorphosis affecting us on all planes - physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.
 
As human beings, we tend to be resistant to change. And when we resist the change, we encounter more difficult lessons, and more difficult transitions. This is not to diminish that 2014 was definitely a challenging year with enormous volatility. All you have to do is turn on the television to see all the chaos, loss, political corruption, corporate greed, confusion, and divisions happening across the globe. 
 
The year 2014 also marked a year for storms - literal, physical, emotional and spiritual. Did you experience any emotional meltdowns or storms? Have you been questioning your role in this world, in society or with your family? As human beings, we experience similar stormy weather such as rip tides, floods, hurricanes and devastation. However, it is during those times just like in nature, that we are clearing out the old, the sick, and the energies that are clogging up our abilities for the new to emerge into our life. This typically leads to a grand spiritual awakening.
 
For those who experienced some stormy weather, did you focus on the storm or did you focus on what comes afterwards? We must remember that the cycles in our life are no different than the cycles of nature. When we experience stormy weather things seemed unclear, cloudy, and at times destructive. It is during those times, we sometimes are unable to see the Sun behind the clouds or the rainbow in the sky or the new sprouts of plants preparing to emerge from the soil.

Remember …
• After every great storm, the Sun returns to shine.
• After every great storm comes the rainbow.
• After every big storm and rough surf comes fertile soil.
• With every big storm comes nature's pruning of unnecessary branches and debris.
• After every big storm comes green grasses.
• After every big storm comes beautiful big flowers.
• After every big storm comes the birds, the animals, and the emergence of life awakens.

I remember growing up as a child and driving around with my dad during a hurricane seeing the streets littered with debris. He taught me that a hurricane is nothing more than Mother Nature’s way of cleaning house and purging what is no longer needed.
 
So you might wonder with all this stormy weather, does this spiritual transformation discriminate? It does not matter if you are a yogi, priest, or someone who masters and meditates daily, the shifts, awakenings, and transformations happen to everyone. Just like a hurricane does not choose a city to hit based on population, race, education, cleanliness, or wealth, what we have been experiencing this year, equally does not discriminate. Many of us have experienced the feeling of losing control in all aspects of our lives at some point. What we learned in the process was learning to let go and surrender our fears and control to the Universe, because in the end, we are never in control.
 
The Universe has been pushing us to learn what we came here to do to fulfill our soulful purpose. For those who are struggling and resisting to this change, may have felt the impacts of these storms. However, those who have learned the art of surrender, may have felt a huge quantum shift and a lift off their beings. We have been working really hard for the last several years to get to this point.
 
You may feel as if you are still in the midst of chaos. The Universe is asking you to remember that with chaos, comes new direction and new life. It is critical for you to stay focused on where you are going and not on the chaos.
 
Many lessons have been learned over the year. Many themes seemed to have emerged such as: the art of surrender, personal responsibility, accepting what is, forgiveness, and learning to let go what you cannot control. We have been learning to no longer hold onto anything that no longer serves us for our highest and best. We cannot add new things to our plate if it is filled with yesterday’s junk. Those who have succeeded in learning these lessons, may have felt a huge shift and weight lifted. A sense of freedom may have also followed like a rubber band snap. When we follow our divine path, we honor ourselves.
 
The secondary lessons we learned as a result of the primary lessons mentioned above, are trust and faith. We learned to have more faith when it was challenged, and trust in the divine to assist us, guide us, and lift us up. We also learned we are more resilient that we believed. As a result, we learned to trust ourselves more. When we let go and surrender to the Universe, we open new doors, new chapters and invite into our lives miracles and abundance.
 
The 2014 stormy weather is passing if it has not already past for you.
 
Mother Earth is listening.
 
The Universe is listening.
 
Are you?
 
Did you go with the flow of change this year or did you resist?
 
The sun is shining.
 
Do you see it?
 
A lot of amazing things are about to happen.
 
Do you feel it?
 
This is a time to choose faith and trust in the divine and conquer your fears once and for all. The Universe believes in you. Let’s complete this metamorphosis cycle like champions and begin 2015 together with a brand new exciting chapter. Above all, let’s enjoy this journey called life.
