Psychic Medium Laura Scott (Issue #7)
by Laura Scott
I have been told by everyone who speaks of reincarnation that we do this
to better ourselves and become perfected enough to go back to God.
If each lifetime brings on new problems and different mistakes than how do
we ever get perfect enough to not to have to reincarnate again?
Great question! Actually, what's interesting is that we are the own judges
of our life experiences. We are the ones who decide if we can do it
better, or differently upon reexamination. This all happens in a
process known as your life review. During our life review, many are
overwhelmed with not only ALL that they experienced and felt, but with all
the feelings and experiences that their actions had on those around them.
There is a lot of support for souls when they go through this process,
because the knee jerk reaction can be, "let me go back and do
better!" but with much support and counseling, we learn from
our life reviews and to slow down a bit as well. Yes, eventually we do
reach levels of perfection and move on from the reincarnation process.
. . . . . . . . .
Can you be an "advanced, old soul" in the spirit realm having
great abilities, knowledge and come to incarnate on earth and be like an
infant, relying on intuition only and wondering what is this all about?
Yes and no. Certainly, all souls must go through the birth process
here and develop through infancy...but as we begin to age, the veil slips
down and basically we spend the rest of our lives remembering in bits and
pieces the truth about who we really are. At least souls that are
older are willing to ponder this, while younger souls will tell you,
" I never give it much thought." Older souls can
bring quite a bit of "unexplainable' knowledge into their
incarnations...like an interest and talent for exotic cooking, or a love
or talent for languages--specific types of knowledge without any
evidence of schooling or study in those subjects in this lifetime.
Old souls also tend to chart more difficult paths for themselves, whether
it's through relationships, familial struggles, or more.
. . . . . . . . .
Can a body walk about without a spirit or soul? Someone said there
were more babies born than spirits wanting to incarnate and so minions or
animal spirits inhabit those bodies.
Dear D .T.,
There are a LOT of schools of thought out there, and I have not way of
knowing who you are specifically quoting. I will say this, we are
seeing the highest population ever here on earth, and but this has more to
do with a burgeoning interest on The Other Side of beings who want to come
in to experience life on earth now. We are undergoing a renaissance of
sorts here on earth in terms of spiritual awakening and shifting and that
is garnering a lot of energetic attention. This attracts interest
from many realms of the galaxy...so those from other galactic forms and
shapes are coming in, but it's not at all as scary or epidemic that some
theorists would have us believe. There are many Universal Laws at
work, and all bodies must have a spirit or life force as part of Divine
Contract, even animals, and plants!
. . . . . . . . .
Can you (or the Committee) provide information regarding the significance
well as the affects of the upcoming Harmonic Concordance, physically and
Thanks & Blessings, Julia
These events are part of all of our Divine Contracts in order to help
reawaken us to our higher energies and life work. They are like part
of a Divine "tune up", or an inspirational maintenance plan.
With each passing event, more and more people awaken spiritually and those
shifts, no matter how small, benefit us all.

I pray that you can help me out. my father was very mean to me and my
sisters when we were small, he was sexually abusive and a terrible father.
He is not well at all now and I just know that his death is not far away.
My question to you is I am so scared when he dies that he will be earth
bound and continue to abuse us as he has done in the past. We have already
agreed not to talk about him when he dies for fear he will hear and haunt
us. What can we do to prevent this from happening?
I am very sorry to hear of your pain and continued fears. They have
dictated to you quite a lot over your lifetime, and when you are ready,
you can let them go. You don't have to wait for your father to die
in order to take your life power back. You can start anytime you choose by
changing your thoughts and using affirmations. The real power is
always in the present moment.
Victimizers, persecutors, controllers and such, are here to teach the rest
of us about humanity, boundaries, and more. The behaviors they choose can
wreak havoc in our lives, scar our hearts and minds, and challenge us in
infinite ways. It is important to understand that at any time we can
choose to change how we think about them and therefore change our life
I suggest that you and your sisters begin by working with a professional
counselor who is experienced in the types of traumas that you have had.
Pick up Louise Hay's classic book, You Can Heal Your Life and her
accompanying workbook and use them. This will give you some step by step
tools for understanding and navigating this new territory of metaphysical
It is time to let your father go. Stop giving him energy by continuing to
let him invade your thoughts and fears. You are an adult now, not
the helpless little girls he once wounded so deeply. A good
professional therapist will help you to remember that. In time, you
can learn how to feel safe again, and how to love and take care of
yourself in new, healthier ways.
Remember, the only person you can control is you, and if you put all your
energy into fear, then there will be little room for living and
doing the learning and growing that you really came here for.
I send you peace and understanding friend, along with my heartfelt prayers
for healing, and a poem that has helped me time and again...
'There's only one way to climb you know,
you have to let go of the rung below; you have to let go of the rung
below.' ~ unknown

I have heard some say they channel only specific beings from The Other
Side, or only guides or only angels....so why is it different? Like a
radio frequency to The Other Side?
Only one station or the other?
Yes, you could say that. It has to do with individual's wiring and
also with their soul contracts and what we have each charted for. I
am able to communicate with Spirit Guides, Angels, Master Teachers, The
Committee, deceased loved ones and more. Some mediums excel at solely
communication from deceased loved ones, others specialize in angel
communication, or animal communication or endless other ways. Remember, we
are each as unique as our own DNA, so naturally there would be just as
diverse and unique choices when it comes to channeling and mediumship.
That is why BestPsychicMediums.com
is such a good place to start in your search for qualified mediums. Bob
Olson, the man who created that site, was quite a skeptic himself--who
came to discover just how important it is to find a good match and a
qualified medium when you are seeking information.!

My family and I have a cottage on a lake in Maine. We love to spend
time there relaxing and enjoying the beautiful scenery. It's idyllic
and all of our neighbors up there are so nice and are great people except
for this incredibly dysfunctional family that live on the same road as us.
These people are year-round residents and resent the "summer
people". The husband beats his wife. They don't work,
instead they deal drugs and steal from the neighbors, breaking into their
homes. They destroy other people's property and are just generally
hateful. They are high-school drop-outs, substance abusers,
criminals, and I have been told that incest has also occurred.
Laura, so many people have tried to help this family only to be stabbed in
the back. The police do nothing. They say nothing can be done
until there is proof in the form of photographs or catching these creeps
red-handed. Or until some one is killed. Yes, that's what
we've been told. The whole atmosphere of that beautiful place seems
poisoned by this family's energy, and I'm afraid, and angry! Please
offer me some advice. I pray for protection all the time when we're
there. Thanks Laura.
Dear Name Withheld,
Wow! This sounds like an episode of Dateline, or a movie. Unfortunately,
it's real life.
First, whenever a crime has been committed, you need to contact the police
and let them handle it. Second, unless you have a neighborhood
association or are part of a legal community (like a condo association)
with bi-laws, fines, and rules, there isn't a lot you can do except form a
neighborhood watch. Third, metaphysically speaking, I suggest that
you affirm: My family and our property are protected by the powerful
White Light that always surrounds us, at all times. Fourth, I
suggest that you affirm/visualize releasing this family "moving on to
their greater good somewhere else." Fifth:
Concentrate on the neighbors you enjoy and try to stay positive; avoid
gossip. And lastly, I would ask myself why I attracted this
experience into my life path and what I can learn from it. If all
else fails, short of you and the other neighbors offering to buy the owner
out, you can move, but I hope it doesn't have to come to that.

Dear Laura, can you give me some tips for dealing with confrontation?
I am a nervous wreck.
For starters, is the person you are confronting rational? Because that
makes a big difference in whether or not you should ever engage in
confrontation. Trying to sell sanity to the insane is not a good use
of time. Plus you may wind up getting some of their chocolate on your
peanut butter. So the most important tip is: Assess what or
who you are dealing with! Always be safe. Never debate gun control
with someone who is holding a loaded gun. Got it?
Then, if all signs indicate a rational
encounter, it helps to write out your points ahead of time. Being prepared
helps to remove the fears that make us tongue tied. Stay calm.
Stick to the issues and facts, while avoiding making judgments about
character. Be clear: when you did X, it makes me feel Y, and caused
Z to happen. Remember a few key phrases so you can use them to keep
the confrontation on the issue. Take some Rescue Remedy to help you calm
down and think through the smoke of it all. There aren't a lot of
people who really like confrontation, so by approaching things calmly, a
win-win can arise. Congratulations on finding your voice!

Greetings, I would like to know if and how
we can send good wishes to our deceased love ones. I once heard a medium
tell a woman to "send him good thoughts". How can I be sure that
my brother is at peace?
The reason for sending our deceased loved ones 'good thoughts' is actually
quite simple. Once we leave the body, we (that is our spirit) is pure
energy. And, here on earth, our thoughts contain energy.
Energy understands energy. Your brother, like so many on The Other
Side, can hear and sense your mental energy. Truly, he is only a
thought away! Sending him good thoughts is an energetic equivalent
to sending someone on earth a card, 'just because you were thinking of
them', or leaving a message on their answering machine. Your brother
is fine, and has done a lot of healing on The Other Side. Your issue
is understanding and embracing that his peace increases when he knows that
you are truly well. When he hears you worry less, he worries about
you less, it's that simple. So, send him your good thoughts, and
know that he gets them. In time, you will see him again, but for
now, you will have to use the 'energetic postcards' we all have at our
disposal. AND! When thoughts of him ''pop" into your mind, you
an know that he has just sent you an energetic postcard back!
