Psychic Medium Laura Scott (Issue #9)
by Laura Scott
I have recently lost a loved one and did not get to say everything I wanted to say before they passed over. How can I get a message to him?
My condolences to you K. Don't worry, the good news is that you can still get a message to him now, and you don't need any fancy or expensive measures in order to do it. Your beloved can still hear you and will fully understand from The Other Side.
Create a simple ritual of closure-your chance to sit, get yourself quieted, light a candle, and speak your mind. Don't worry if you can't hear your loved one's response or reaction. The purpose is for you to say out loud what you felt was unsaid and release it. That is the only way you are going to begin to heal. Let go of your regrets so that there is room for healing to come in it's place.
You can use this whole experience to learn and grow so that you are living a more truthful path in all your relationships, and owning your power in the now. Say no when you mean no and yes when you mean yes. When people mean a lot to you, tell them. If you change your mind about something, honor it. Go on record. This will be a wonderful legacy to your loved one and creates a powerful example for us all.

I have a friend who has twin boys (age 9). One was diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy about a 1 1/2 years ago. He has went from showing symptoms to total wheel chair bound within this year and a half. Are there any cures in the near future? Or is there anything that will slow down or possibly put him in remission? Do you have any advice or doctors that she can contact to help her with this? I know that they attend the MDS Clinic and have been turned down on trial drug studies. I am thinking that maybe something for sure will come along to help him in time. Thank you for taking questions that could possible make a difference in someone's life!
Dear Debbie M. ,
Muscular Dystrophy is one of the neuromuscular conditions that will become a thing of the past as researchers are cleared to move forward and unravel pieces of cell research and the human genome. This is why it is so critical for funding in these areas of research to be cleared. Write your congressional representatives and urge them to support the research that is just waiting to be unraveled. We will see significant movement on this in the next 3-5 years, sooner if the funding is released and those who have been blocking it become more enlightened or are replaced.
I suggest some Nutritional Response Testing, so that his food sensitivities can be cleared off and his immune system be less taxed, as well as integrating his care with other Holistic modalities. Things like Bach Flower Remedies (Oak, Walnut and Gorse would be wonderful), as well as Cranio-sacral body work, water related therapies, and acupuncture. These types of modalities are excellent at addressing the energy 'hiccups' happening in neuromuscular conditions. You can also teach him to say affirmations out loud like: "My life is a wonderful dance." "I am free to be the best me I can be." "I go beyond other people's limitations."
I would also encourage you to understand this from the perspective of the soul. Each one of us has a life plan or soul chart. We plan it all on The Other Side before we come here: our life themes, events, etc... Part of this child's chart includes a fallibility line. This means he has chosen to experience certain physical challenges in order to perfect as a soul, as well as to teach and inspire the rest of us. Thank you for writing and I am sending along my prayers.

This year I lost my beautiful pet Jason. He was put to sleep do to complications from diabetes. I often wonder if I did the right thing, and does he know how much I love him? I told him that when he got Home to let me know he made it alright. That afternoon I smelled roses as I was standing near his water bowl. I knew it was him.
I loved him as my son. And i just need to know if he still loves me. He will always be my baby boy.
I understand your loss friend. Yes, you did the right thing because as much as Jason loved you, he was really losing his quality of life and suffering. He viewed your action as a kindness, but was worried that you wouldn't be okay without him. Rest easy, he knows how much you loved him. He even gave you the sign you asked for and continues to come around you - haven't you seen him out of the corner of your eye, and at times heard the sounds of his steps in the house? Yes. All your love is eternal, and you will be together once again.
Now, I have a message from him for you: when the time is right, he is asking that you find a new 'brother or sister,' because he says that you are just too good at it not to have another being to love from the animal kingdom. He'll help you find the way. Of course you are not replacing him he says matter of factly, he just knows that you have more left to give to another and he doesn't want to see that go unused when there is so much need here. Don't worry, he will keep close tabs on it all, and your new pet will be most aware of his presence.
I know what it is like to lose a family member like your beloved Jason. It leaves a hole bigger than the Grand Canyon. But Jason is right, you do have a lot left to give whether you know it yet or not, and when the time is right-go ahead and meet another member of your Divine Family here on earth. It will all be okay.

Why do people seem reluctant to mention the dead?
To quote Stevie Wonder: Superstition. In past times people thought that by mentioning the dead you were conjuring up uncontrolled spirits and making yourself susceptible to their evil doings. Others believed that it left the dead unable to rest. Hollywood still perpetuates this myth: Beatlejuice, Beatlejuice,
This practice of not mentioning the dead continues on in our Western society for other reasons as well: we are afraid of bringing up something that may make someone else uncomfortable, OR we are uncomfortable with another person's grief. If a grieving person appears to be doing okay, we convince ourselves that if we mention the person's name who died it will only re-upset them.
The irony is that by NOT mentioning the dearly departed, we are actually causing MORE pain to family and survivors. It isolates them in their grief and adds great sorrow for them to think they are the only ones missing the deceased or caring. As if the shock and adjustment of not having their loved one close, hearing them, or being able to call to them in the next room weren't enough - the grieving slip into a void were others stop mentioning the departed's name. It's doubly tragic.
I think it's time we started a movement where we go into the thing we fear the most and openly acknowledge the departed to those who remain. The sky won't fall open and swallow us all up. It will actually help the grieving to heal and bring them comfort to not feel so alone and isolated in their grief. And what's so scary about that?

What do you advise those who are new at using the tools you speak of in your recent book, when signs and synchronicities point in a direction that does not seem wise logically or on the surface? Should making a change go smoothly if it's the right thing to do? If, in making a change, problems and greater risks seem to keep "popping up", does this mean the proposed action is not in line with the flow of the universe?
I'm struggling with a decision about making a move to another state, mainly for the sake of my husband's professional peace of mind. I would say the signs I've noticed seem to indicate we should go forward. My concern, however, is that to make this move requires a lot of sacrifice and logically most people would not take this risk on face value.
I hold you and your work in the highest regard and hope you can provide some insight to ease the anxiety of making this decision.
Intuition and Divine Direction are not meant to be logical. Neither are synchronicities. I've seen some great messages and opportunities be missed and dismissed through the fear based thinking of the human mind. Synchronicities aren't from the earth plane. They are from Divine. Even if you spent every waking hour trying to recreate them you couldn't.
The "problems" you mention popping up are really just opportunities, 'pop quizes' from the Universe. It goes something like this:
On the Other Side: "Hey Mortie, did you hear that Carolyn's family has finally decided to take our advice and make a leap of faith? She says that she is really getting it and wants to do it!" (Sounds of cheers and jubilation)
Then as the cheers ebb, another guide says: "Awesome, now let's send them a pop quiz to see if they really mean it," and hence your 'challenges' appear.
Our ego uses these tests and quizzes to quickly talk us out of our greatness and move us away from our spiritual center. My advice to you is this: Go for it. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. This is because the Universe rewards willingness. Stay positive and use visualization, affirming and manifesting to show the Universe what outcome you would like, and then leave Them room to do even better!

Is it part of my mission to process other people's pain in this world or do I need to erect clear boundaries so that I don't absorb as much of other people's stuff, since I am so sensitive? If it is part of my mission, that's fine. I will accept that as part of my journey.
By all means, erect clear boundaries and take care of yourself! Your first obligation is to love and care for you. If you don't have boundaries in place you will get so bogged down energetically that you won't be able to get out of bed in the morning and function in your life. Everything will begin to set you off and exhaust or irritate you. Then how will you be of help to anyone? It's just like the airlines say, "Secure your own oxygen mask FIRST and then assist those around you."
Those who work in careers where they are close to other people's energies all the time (body workers, Medical practitioners, care givers, hairdressers, etc.) need to be sure to prioritize themselves and regularly get themselves 'back into the charging base' or they will burn out completely and be of no use to anyone.
