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?
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.
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.
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.
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

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~
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.

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.
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.
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.

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?

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.

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
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
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.

I have a fear of
meditating. Any ideas why?
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.

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,
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.
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.
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
