Psychic Medium Laura Scott (Issue #8)
by Laura Scott
After my father passed away, my mother gave me her wedding ring which she had made into a pin for me. When we were going for a reading, I wore the pin. Before leaving for that reading, I realized the pin was gone off my blouse...lost. During a subsequent reading this past summer, I was told that my father took it back. I don't understand this. Can you help me to understand this? Thank you. Susan
I am sorry for your loss of such an interesting and emotional piece of jewelry and heritage. However, I completely disagree with the idea that your father took it back. What would he do with it on The Other Side? Wear it? That's ridiculous. Your father is in a place of perfection and energy; he wouldn't need a piece of jewelry in order to 'feel' at peace or more complete. Retrace your steps, post rewards, and check carefully inside the bottom of the lining of your coat, and underneath all the furniture.

l have been broken up with my ex-boyfriend for 1 year now, and things don't seem to be working out my way at all. l feel like we are supposed to still be together because of all the signs that l always see in my dreams and, he's always on my mind. l feel lost because he is currently living with another girl. So l feel as if it's over but why do l always get these signs and why do l always dream about him?
In my heart l know that he still loves me and l feel it when ever l see him just by the look in his eyes. How do l know whether or not we are truly meant to be together? lt just seems like every time l try to find someone new something always happens. So it never works out. What does this mean? Am l really suppose to be with him or am l going to find someone else that l can call my own? l know that you have been helping people for years and l need your guidance. What should l do? Another major issue is his family. They are constantly contacting me and telling me their problems and discussing problems with my ex and his girlfriend. Apparently they are always fighting and she hates me. l've never done anything to her but be nice and all she does is talk bad about me. lt hurts me but l'm unsure of what l should really do?
Dear Lost ,
Yikes, that's a lot of questions and churning. The bigger issues seem to be about your inability to accept, heal and move on. I strongly recommend that you seek some counseling with a few specific goals in mind: closure, improved self esteem & better boundaries. As for your presence being seen as a 'threat' to the present live-in girlfriend, try to put yourself in her shoes. Here she is living with someone who's ex girlfriend is acting compulsive and obsessive, and who's family likes to keep her in the mix for kicks and giggles. Wouldn't you be upset?
It's time to start a new relationship with yourself, and begin investing in some mental security and a healthier outlook. There is no way you will attract a healthy, available, loving partner until you deal with your depression and other issues. Make a deal with yourself to seek some qualified guidance, and to spend the next few months investing in you. Treat yourself in new and supportive ways so that ultimately, you will have plenty to offer in a new healthy relationship. The right partner will recognize these positive new qualities of yours without any major convincing.

Is there such a thing as a communication from a dog of mine on The Other Side that had been a special friend? Do dogs communicate after they have passed on? My dog passed on July 25, 2003. He was my best friend. I was just wondering if only people could be contacted. The question has been driving me crazy. Is it possible?
I am sorry for your loss friend. Our society is just beginning to understand that the loss and grief for any being we have loved is equally significant. You have had a death in your immediate family, and that must be respected in order for healing to occur. Yes! Absolutely animals can be contacted in addition to people. Your dog is around you, and yes, that is him you are seeing out of the corner of your eye, and at times hearing in the house. Talk to him out loud, just as you did when he was here on the earth plane in physical form. He will enjoy that. Listen for him in the twilight hours, perhaps telling you happily of his new adventures and wanting to share them with you. He will look vibrant, and youthful, and be full of energy (we ALL will on The Other Side). And remember, healing your heart takes time. Consider joining an on-line support group (visit
www. Griefand Belief.com), surrounding yourself with photos of him and happy memories. An era of your life has ended, and a new one is beginning. That is significant. When it is time, and you are ready to meet a new companion and make another friend, the opportunity will present itself. You can even ask your special friend to steer you towards the right match. He will be happy to help you. Many hugs and condolences on your loss D. You were blessed to have such a wonderful friend, and to be one in return.

I can't seem to move on since my loss of a loved one. I feel his presence a lot of the time. Is he happy and does he know how sorry I was that I wasn't there? T.
Yes, your loved one is happy and well. It is time to release your regrets and move on dear. You have already been completely forgiven by him, and your own guilt is not serving you or your beloved. In fact, by holding on to guilt and regret over something which we no longer have control, we cause ourselves a great deal of stress and angst that is actually upsetting to our loved ones on The Other Side. It makes it harder for them to move forward, harder for them to communicate with us, harder for ourselves to heal and harder for us to begin adjusting to the new ways our loved ones will be with us. So release it dear. Create a ritual for yourself. Write a letter full of all the regrets and then burn it (safely) up to the ethers. Say out loud as it is going up in smoke, "I let go of what no longer serves me. I give myself permission to move on. I deserve a good life, to be happy, to learn and to grow. I am willing to do my part. The past no longer controls me. I am free."
Remember sweetie, guilt is one human emotion that can erode the mind, body and spirit. When you know better, you do better. It's that simple. Now forward you go.

How can I develop my own psychic powers?
For starters, pick up a copy of the Ancient Stardust Progress Journal that I just created. It's a special journal workbook that demystifies the journaling process and increases your intuition by showing you how to track your own progress. You don't necessarily need an expensive class, or a year of study abroad. Everyone has intuition and anyone can learn how to access and decode their own private wiring system. There are also a number of exercises in my new book,
The Complete Idiot's Guide to Divining the Future. I talk about more than two dozen tools and how to find the ones most suited to you in a responsible, safe way. The book is hands on and full of fun stories that help illustrate how things work. Enjoy!

I listened to you on Laura Lee's show. What I found strange is why would our
guides ask other masters and not God when they need help? It doesn't make sense
Because even in Heaven, there is hierarchy and structure. There are different phylum of angels, guides, teachers, and more. Think of it as in some way similar to earthly governmental structure (only sans elections). While God is at 'the end of the line,' there are countless beings in service to God on The Other Side who exist to help and support us. God is both overseer and Source, working through all beings.

I'm 17 years old and I have noticed that some strange things have been happening to me. My uncle died a few months ago and the night he died my cousin range my mobile screaming for help, but what's strange is that every night I make sure I put my phone on silent but that particular night I left my phone on loud. Is that just a coincidence? Also when I was on holiday I was trying to find an old friends mobile number but I deleted it. Then that night I got a text message from that person! Is this just another coincidence?
There is no such thing as a coincidence. That is a man-made term to try to dismiss things our ego's can't quantify. There is only synchronicity. Divine Order. The situation with your friend involves energetically connecting with each other on the ethers. It is a form of intuitive development when you can begin to send and receive messages telepathically. Most people can relate to this scenario. They pick up the phone to call someone, and before they can dial, the other person is ringing them. Enjoy it! It's all part of the synchronistic flow.

I had a session with you a few months ago. I give the credit to you for helping me see myself in a different light. One question, though, the things you told me, are they your own thoughts or were you receiving messages on what to say? Thank you again, you have helped me more than you will ever know,
Thank you for your heartfelt updates and comments. As a Psychic and Channel for Healing, I am always 'receiving.' Everything that comes through in a session is for the client and I speak and share information as I am being directed to. Sessions are a bit like dreams to me when they are over. If I am doing a good job, I am relaying info from The Committee, a room full of guides, Master Teachers, Angels, and more. My own personal thoughts are not relevant, unless I am being shown examples of how something at hand is similar to other life experiences, which helps me to better relay what is being asked of me. If I am not effectively relaying the message, or if The Committee feels it would be helpful to speak directly to the client, they will draw in closer and I move into a deeper state of trance. Don't be confused by the pronouns; when I am in session, whatever comes through is being sent directly for you. If a particular guide would like to be identified by name, I gladly oblige, likewise if The Committee would like me to emphasize something from them.

I have been married for one year (our anniversary is in 2 days), and not very happily. Though there has been love, we got married mainly because I was pregnant. Our daughter will be one in July. My husband is from northern Maine. He wants to move back there to be closer to his family, build a house on his family property. I don't want to be that far from the people I care about and suggest a move somewhere in between (we live in Mass., where we met, and my family is in CT), which he refuses to do. I also don't want my in-laws as my next door neighbors, as much as I like them. The bottom line is that he says he will leave the relationship if I don't move within a short drive to his family. Do I stay in the relationship so my daughter can have a dad around all the time?
I am sorry to hear that you and your husband are struggling with willingness. From what you say, he has very little interest in being willing to compromise. In fact, he has laid out his ultimatum. The healthiest of relationships require compromise and win-win solution models. When things are set up in a "my way or the high way" choice, no one really wins. Even if you stay 'for your daughter's sake' you are compromising far beyond your comfort zone and in essence signing over your soul's needs and opinions. I can't imagine that would be good for anyone's love quotient to try to curl up beside someone who doesn't care what you think, how you feel, or what you need. Do you? In which case, what kind of role model are you really giving your daughter? Since you can only control your own degree of willingness, not his, I suggest you search your heart long and hard before you sign up to be cut off from your support system...because it sounds like more than ever you are going to need one.
