Psychic Medium Laura Scott (Issue #14)

What is the current explanation for why this life is so miserable for so many people (Rwanda, Haiti, Sudan, and inner city ghettos everywhere, etc) while others appear to have a much easier time? I'm asking this question with the supposition that we make pre-birth agreements and choose our existences. What could be the point to such disease and destruction?
This is a good series of questions and I want to thank you for asking them. Believe it or not, all souls do preselect their life themes, regions of the world, time of existence here on earth and more. The people in the areas you mentioned have truly chosen a most difficult path with much suffering. It certainly does make some of us wonder: Why?
Why not chose an easier path? What are the benefits to living a life so limited by sheer survival? The answers are manyfold. When souls come into the earth plane we preselect themes to work on. These themes take many various forms in many varied scenarios. There are themes that involve poverty (which all of the areas you listed suffer from), as well as themes that involve fallibility, suffering, strife, patience, victim and more. There are also themes that involve justice, performance, aesthetics, intellectuality, temperance and the list goes on.
What we pre-chose for ourselves to experience and why is a soul's personal decision. Deciding to come in to a more challenging existence is not for the faint of heart or inexperienced. The commonality is that we are all here to learn and to grow, and in doing so-just by existing, so many of these themes also serve to teach the rest of us some bigger lessons.
Remember, we are ALL part of a larger matrix. And this larger matrix is ultimately designed to help us on our journey to learn and to grow. We are here to work on ourselves, but beyond that we absolutely impact each other-whether we consciously know it or not.
Souls who chose to come into areas of the world that are suffering from drought, disease, famine, oppression, war, and more, are not only working on their own individual lessons and soul growth, but they are also providing a unique service to the rest of us as well. Their existence is an opportunity to remind the rest of the world to stretch our thoughts outside of ourselves: to awaken ourselves to be more compassionate, more appreciative, more concerned, and more grateful.
The souls who choose these types of difficult paths in suffering or struggling areas of the world invite the rest of us to raise our awareness and participate in raising the level of humanity and existence. Have you noticed how when souls in these regions look at us with eyes as big as wells that they speak to the very heart of our souls?
Some of us will receive that message and ask ourselves how we can help. We will search our hearts, minds, and resources for answers. Others will not. It is all part of a larger journey and picture. Souls who chose to incarnate into these traumatized areas of the world are offering to not only do their own individual soul work but to help inspire humanity to do some of theirs as well.
This creates an invitation for those that 'can' to 'do.' Whether by speaking up, praying, helping to create policy, being more compassionate, making a donation, or making a personal commitment to view the world as the interconnected place it truly is... When we begin to understand that we ARE all in it together, we elevate our soul vibrations. We connect ourselves with a harmonic resonance that has the power to change the world.
You might be wondering if there is a reward for souls choosing a more difficult life path over others. Yes, there is...it's the true satisfaction-once they are back on The Other Side of course-from knowing that their existence (however awful at the time) helped to contribute in the shifting of consciousness on earth for the better.
Lastly, it is interesting and important to note that many souls in less fortunate and at times atrocious circumstances somehow still manage to let their light shine. They have faith, hope, courage, resilience, and even offer us up a smile. It sure does give the rest of us a chance to wonder just what is it that we have to complain about-doesn't it? Namaste.

My question is.....Can we make our selves sick? My daughter in-law who has been married to my son for 8 years turned from a healthy young woman to a woman who is now on a social security disability. You name it she has it!! She is a diabetic, has lumbar spine disease, is bi-polar and on and on and is CONSTANTLY coming down with all kinds of illnesses. Her kids are always sick too. I'm worried that my son may be brainwashed into thinking there is something wrong with him also. Thank you for your answer. Barbara
Yes we can absolutely make ourselves sick. Our thoughts are very powerful. There is a lot of great material published on this metaphysical subject. Check out the work of Louise Hay, or the movie "What the Bleep Do We Know?" I suggest that you focus on being a power of example to the grand kids and offer a different perspective. With one of their parents so unstable, be a calm, steady presence. Be conscious of what you say and don't say when you are around them. Give them tons of attention when they are well since that combats the converse belief of needing to be unwell in order to get attention. Your son won't be brainwashed... but he is a bit perplexed!

I really haven't been at peace with the loss of my loved one. There are specific reasons why and they really make me extremely sad. I have heard spirits see things differently when they reach the other side. I feel my loved one doesn't look at me the same way as they did when they were here as my family. I don't feel like I'm special to my loved one anymore in that sense. I feel like they have all this knowledge and aren't who they were when on earth as my family anymore, and also look at their life with my family and I as something small. This makes me so sad and emotional at times. Like they are so different now.
I've had such bad days emotionally with all these thoughts and it's so hard to ease the grieving process. I know I'll never be the same. I'm hoping you have encountered similar feelings with clients and you can offer me any words or advice. I'd really appreciate it so very much. Thank you.
I'm very sorry for your loss. The things you are feeling are normal. Feeling left behind is part of the process of that so many go through during grief. Let me reassure you that one million percent of the love you and your loved one shared is eternal. That means unconditional, forever. There is nothing that could make you any less special than you are and will always be to them.
Feeling abandoned or alone during grief is natural. Feeling like things have changed forever is truthful. Feeling like you will never be the same is honest. Please do not be afraid to seek additional help in getting through this, whether it's participating in a grief support group, some private counseling, or using some Bach Flower Essences like Rescue Remedy, Star of Bethlehem, Gorse, Walnut. I am keeping you in my prayers Anthony. Be gentle with yourself.

I would just like to ask why dolphins have such a profound effect on me?
Thank you for your time, M. B.
They are calling you M.B. and speaking to your soul! You asked them to before you got here. So they come and remind you of your bigger truths, your greater potential, your true home. Dolphins are also one of the exceptions in reincarnation, and you have been a dolphin in a previous life. Reconnecting with them in any fashion will soothe, comfort and inspire your spirit. So the bigger question is...when are you going to join me on a wild dolphin retreat trip? Once you do get to swim with wild free dolphins, it can change the energy of your life!
