Ask Psychic Medium Laura Scott (Issue #10)
by Laura Scott

What do you think of all the Martha Stewart hoopla?  Is this a case of someone reaping what they sow?  Will she go to jail?

Curious

Dear Curious,

I think it is both interesting and sad on several levels. Stewart is one of a relatively short list of prominent business women with money and power in the U.S. when compared to the list of business men with money and  power here. She was 'taken down' by the system for receiving inside information on a stock that essentially amounted to her saving $55,000 dollars. At the same time men on that list of corporations with money and power were involved in far more nefarious activities...i.e. stealing millions of dollars from regular folks in scenarios like ENRON, TYCO, and Haliburton to name a few.  Most of these men have been left comparatively unscathed. The prosecution of Stewart sends out a message to women in power that the system still has quite a ways to go for equality.  

Stewart was also held accountable in the court of public opinion for being successful and rich in a time when many feel resentful and powerless to hold those in power accountable. It is also interesting that the very characteristics that helped Stewart compete in business as a woman in a male dominated field are viewed by some as more 'witchiness' than actual talent while men exhibiting the same behaviors are judged in more glowing terms. Similar shrewdness, directness, frankness, astuteness, and decisiveness are currently being demonstrated by a prominent NY based business man on TV for a reality show that is garnering high ratings and reviews. As a society, we haven't yet evolved to the point of demanding to see shows that are designed to celebrate success of people who are doing business with great consciousness and promoting a win-win attitude over an I win-you lose belief system.  

As for someone reaping what they sow, yes, but as you can see there is even more to it. People chart for all sorts of experiences for all kinds of reasons. Stewart's prosecution is part of a greater learning lesson for all of us, not just one for her alone. Hence the points above. Stewart will do some jail time in a more high end center, all the while using her time to privately churn out new ideas and avenues for reinventing herself. She'll have some commuted time, and in a few years will rise like a phoenix from the ashes again. Meanwhile, look for many other players and some serious maneuvering as several try to emerge to 'take Martha's place.'  Martha may be down, but don't count her out. She'll be back. 

Rooting for someone else’s' demise only insures that there will be that many more rooting for your own. Remember, when one of us is doing better, all of us are doing better. Like JFK said, "A rising tide lifts all boats."    

. . . . . . . . .

Dear Laura,

Recently my great uncle passed on. He was sick for many years and went through a lot before he died.  At the end it was hard to understand him and it was difficult to talk to him.  I told him that I loved him when he was sick but I don't know if he heard me.

I want him to know that we miss him.  Did he reach The Other Side? Is he with God?  Did he hear what I read at his funeral?

Thank you and God Bless~

Aubrey

Dear Aubrey,

Yes your Uncle felt the emotional and heartfelt things you said to him before he passed. He knows how you feel and appreciated what you have done to promote his 'better' memories. He made it to The Other Side just fine, and had a good adjustment.  He sees things in a different way from where he is now, with a much broader understanding than he had when he was here on the earth plane.  He wants you to know that it brings him much joy to hear you laugh and that you shouldn't feel so responsible.  You are still dear to him, perhaps more so now that he can see the big picture than while he was here to realize and tell you himself.  Take peace Aubrey.

. . . . . . . . .

Dear Laura,

I have a friend, he claims a spirit comes to him at night and speaks through him. This spirit tells him that he wants to come back to earth and that he can do so by finding someone who loves him here on earth. My friend is now on a quest to find this soul a friend to meet and hopefully fall for.

Can this really happen? Sure I have heard of spirits coming into someone's body, speaking to their loved ones through a medium... but coming back? If it were that easy wouldn't all of them be trying to do this?

My worries are that my friend has a mental issue... yet he has told me things that he claims this spirit tells him that truly no one would know about.  I am scared because I do not know what to do.

Confused

Dear Confused,

Going solely on what you have written and without knowing your friend I would say that you have reason to be concerned. There is a legitimate soul scenario known as a 'walk-in' where by prior arrangement or new agreement souls will trade places, similar in some ways to selling your car to someone else. Doreen Virtue has written about this and I suggest that you read up quickly.  

The key difference between what you have described and a more classic 'walk-in' transference is that you are saying that your friend is acting as a broker to find a willing body other than himself for this spirit to inhabit. That is concerning because a 'walk-in' arrangement is made solely between the two parties involved. The Laws of the Universe do not encourage or support outside parties acting as brokers for soul work. In order for a 'walk-in' scenario to take place, there must be mutual understanding and consent. Either your friend is mistaking the spirits request to exchange with him, or he is being influenced to act in what could potentially be an unsafe and dangerous way.  

. . . . . . . . .

Dear Laura,

I am someone who has been very pessimistic and insecure for all her life. I have read a lot of materials on synchronicities.  I can see them all right. Not that I don't feel grateful for them, but there are times I just seem not to be able to bring myself to really trust them, especially when obstacles are in sight! Laura, I know that to have faith is a (if not THE) lesson I have to learn for my life. But what I don't know is:  HOW?

Yours sincerely,

anonymous from Hong Kong

Dear Anonymous,

Good question. Faith is about trusting that a Higher Order is always at work despite immediate appearances to the contrary. It's knowing that you don't have to hold up the stars, rotate the planets or move the tides... And if such colossal and essential things are taken care of with intricate design and regard, surely so too are the things in your own life. The main thing that interferes with faith is our human ego. Train yourself to suspend the ego and you will find that your faith increases many fold.  Use the Ancient Stardust Progress Journal to document the synchronicities in the special section, as well as your gratitude. This will serve as your 'truth proof' for when you are feeling negative or doubtful.  The Bach Flower Essence: Gentian is designed to help with pessimism.

. . . . . . . . .

Dear Laura,

You stated that you believe that everyone has spirits, and angels that watch over us; yet, bad things continue to happen.  How are they watching and protecting us?

Thank you for your time and expertise.

Sincerely,

K

Dear K,

You are confusing the presence of spirits and angels with a limited view of the roles that they play. Spirit guides and angels are here to support us, inspire us, encourage us, remind us, and yes, at times protect us. But what one person deems as a 'bad thing' can often be viewed from several other points of view. We are after all, here to learn and to grow as souls. If we didn't get tests and challenges and obstacles, how would we do that?

Stretch yourself not to think in such narrow terms. Help, support, & protection from The Other Side comes in many forms.  What can appear as a 'bad thing' happening in one moment can be turned into something very profound in the next.

. . . . . . . . .

Hi Laura,

I have a fear of meditating.  Any ideas why?

Thank You,
Carol

Hello Carol,

This is more common than people realize and the reason why I created the Ancient Stardust Tools for Change CD's to help support and inspire the people that I hear from everyday from around the globe.  Lot's of people recommend meditation, but if you've never done it before or tried it and failed, there aren't many places to turn to for support. On the Grounding and Centering CD I explain why people have difficulty with meditation, and the keys to doing it successfully.  There are also some great guided meditations with wonderful music that will help you through the process and leave you feeling renewed and inspired.  

. . . . . . . . .

Dear Laura,

I have not managed to have a happy relationship yet though I have been married twice and lived with another man for four years.  I am presently involved with a bachelor.  We've known each other for three years and we've gone steady one year.  Is there any chance he'll commit and that I'll finally find some peace in my life?  Please advise.  Thank you,

Margaret

Hello Margaret,

Okay, deep breath, it's time for a reality check. Not only have you been depressed for many years, but you seem to think that the answer will come from somewhere or someone outside of you. Peace can only come from within you M. Until you improve the relationship you have with yourself first, you are heading for another let down.

And at the rate you are traveling, if you aren't careful you'll be unsuccessfully married for the third, fourth and even fifth time, all the while feeling restless and unhappy. Like it or not, you are the common denominator in all the relationships you have had. Put the focus there, and use this as an opportunity for learning, growing and changing. This is the perfect time to seek some professional counseling for yourself and deal with the depression you have carried all these years. 

Learning new ways to love and respect yourself changes the lens you look at life with. It also changes the types of partners you attract into your field. The right professional will be able to help you with some western pharmaceutical support-which you need to jump start your system and level your chemicals off as you begin facing your depression and mental work.  If you don't face it now, it will keep following you around like a shadow-leaving you feeling empty and more depressed. Make the call for help today friend. You deserve it.  I wish you peace and much success.
