Psychic Medium Laura Scott (Issue #17)
by Laura Scott
I saw your web site through Bob Olson's article on psychics and mediums. Laura, my 15 year old daughter has decided she wants to come back and live with me. Is this a good idea for both of us? I have a great desire to be a good mom. She is very needy, needs much attention and is possessive of me. Please advise me how to handle this in a way that promotes both of our well-being.
Thank you for writing in. Yes, this is doable, providing you put out some clear ground rules and systems for communicating. You can do it! To ensure the overall success, write out a contract with each other stating what you promise and asking her to state what she promises. Then sign them in front of each other.
Create a habit of regular family meetings to talk about what's working and what needs improving on a weekly or biweekly basis. Always include the good along with the areas needing work. Designate a special bowl or jar for slips of paper where you are both writing down items when issues come up that need to be addressed (by each of you) and at the meeting, pull from the jar and discuss the concerns and solutions.
Build into the plan that she has regular time away (including overnights) with her other custodian, overnights with friends and more so that her life circle expands, not contracts with the new arrangements.
A professional counselor will be important for both of you so that each of you has a safe place to process, explore and learn. You may also want to have joint sessions so that when difficult things come up you have a neutral party to help guide you both toward solutions. If you live near a major university, many of them have free or sliding scale counseling centers with services offered to the public.
Lastly, your daughter would benefit from the Bach Flower Remedy Chicory which is designed for balancing out possessiveness, clingy-ness, and neediness. Walnut is a great remedy for change and transition for both of you and of course Rescue Remedy is wonderful for stress of all levels. You may want to add in some Elm, for when you are feeling overwhelmed. You can purchase these at any good health food store.
Remember, at the end of the day it's all worth it. You both have a lot to learn from each other. It's a great chance to put some new boundaries in place and grow together. Best wishes to you both!

Why do you say that animals are healers?
Hi Curious, great question!
Because they are. Studies show that petting animals lowers blood pressure, eases depression, changes heart rates and lifts the spirit. More and more animals are becoming healing partners by being utilized as therapy animals for the elderly, ailing, children with emotional developmental issues, learning disorders, and neurological issues. Companion animals offer us back a beautiful river of love and peace in return for our care. They teach us to lighten up, live in the moment and to go out and enjoy the day. They ground us and help clear our energy by pulling us out of our heads and into the now. All that for a treat and a head scratch...you just can't beat it!

I am needing to know if I am on the right path. The things that I receive... are they fairly clear or are they clouded with my own viewpoints?
If you are using proper grounding and centering techniques it becomes easier and easier to get 'clear' information and feel that you are 'One with The Flow.' Check out the Grounding & Centering CD in the Ancient Stardust Tools for Change CD Series for some terrific guided visualizations, or pick up a copy of The Complete Idiot's Guide to Divining the Future which is chock full of excellent tools that are easy to use. It will help you learn to clear off your attachment to outcome and open up a more effective flow of intuitive and psychic information.
Less analysis, more sense of trust is what you want to cultivate. If you have put good mechanisms in place for only receiving The Highest and The Best and practice, you will feel much better about your results. An invocation or prayer should also include a request that 'none of your personal opinions, filters or energy influence the outcome.' That should help!

Do cell phones and computers have a negative EMF (Electro Magnetic Field) effect on the body?
Yes they do. We would all do well to limit use and be sure to get outside regularly. Some folks like to use Q-link technology to counterbalance the stress effects technology creates with EMF disturbances. Q-link type products emit a frequency meant to counter act and restore the body from EMF disruptions. You can search it on the web, products like these come in many forms from clocks to necklaces and more. Sensitive folks like myself really feel it, and simple things like cell phone use can literally drive us 'batty.'

Although this question may not be of benefit to a wide audience I so hope you will consider answering it. I simply don't know where to turn for advice regarding this problem.
I am haunted by the number 13. I don't fear the number or have a phobia regarding it, but I am seriously haunted by it. My friends and relatives have witnessed this and everyone agrees I am not imagining it. I'm a "normal" person without phobias, fears, illness, etc. BUT for the past year and a half the number 13 is everywhere I look. If I check the time it is a number that contains 13 like 3:11 pm. When I check my speedometer it is 13 something. If I look at a mile marker it is 13. If I glance at at an address while driving it is 13. Last week I was looking for an address and pulled over to consult my map...I looked up and saw 1313 on a telephone pole in reflective stickers to mark an address. I went to get a new post office box last week.....#463.....it adds up to 13. Although I felt foolish I asked the Postmaster to assign a different box to me. He said he only had bigger boxes available and it would cost....an extra $13. Due to a recent move I had to get my car registered...the plate number adds up to 13. My new phone number adds up to 31.....or 13 reversed.
This are only a few examples of how the number 13 has invaded my life. A typical day is filled with $13 grocery bills, 13 cents in change, $13.11 in the gas tank, an electric bill of $31.13, the vet bill totalling $61.31. The number is literally everywhere I look. I've never been a truly superstitious person but I am starting to wonder if the universe isn't trying to tell me something....something not so great.
Can you help? PLEASE!
Thanks in advance for any insight.
Ladena, Ladena, Ladena.....RELAX! Now give me a moment to catch my breath from laughing. Our guides and loved ones on The Other Side often use number synchronicities to buoy us along. Now you know why being a guide is such a thankless job...here yours are working at every turn to show you they are with you, helping you, supporting you, cheering for you, and time after time it goes misunderstood and unappreciated. In fact, you say you feel invaded instead of blessed!
Relax and ENJOY IT! It is sent with love. To make you smile and feel connected, not frown and feel cursed. Breathe deeply and know that All IS Well. The numbers 1 and 3 are great numbers with a lot of positive spiritual juice! Shift your focus to what a positive blessing this is and how in sync with the flow you are... and so it shall swiftly be. P.S. if I were you I'd play the daily lottery!

My sister yells at her kids and it really hurts me. What should I tell her?
Tell her that it's easier to build a child than to repair an adult. Offer her some time off to recharge herself (then you can baby sit and provide some contrast in styles). Keep gently speaking up and offering to help. Those kids need you and your sister is exhausted and out of ideas.

I had an occurrence recently that I have a very hard time describing and thought that you might be able to explain this to me. I had a few moments, at two separate times on the same day where I felt very lightheaded, had visions or memories flash before me of things I had either dreamt of or possibly lived at one point in time. While this was happening I had an extremely panicky feeling and almost felt as though I were falling. I actually had this once before, years ago while driving in Arizona and I felt exactly the same way and I remember trying to explain this to my friend who was in the passenger seat, as it was occurring. When it happened recently only a couple hours apart, I was aware of everything around me, but literally had to lie down and actually fell asleep for the night. This is very hard to explain and I actually found it quite frightening. I have never heard of such a thing and although I am intuitive to a certain degree, this escapes me. I truly hope that you can enlighten me as to what this could possibly be.
Many blessings to you,
You are experiencing the effects of shifting energy and energy vortexes. When the shifts take place it can feel exactly as you are describing and sometimes lead to a heavy almost drugged sleep. It is nothing to be frightened of, in fact I have found that if you embrace it then the energy shift will move through more swiftly and cleanly. The challenging part is that these types of shifts and moving vortexes happen outside of our control, which means when you are aware of one, best to clear the decks and relax your
calendar. There is no point in fighting it, and you'll feel good, great even once it passes.
I do think it is interesting to note that more and more folks on the earth plane are beginning to be more sensitive to energy shifting. For some it is a headache out of the blue, for others they might feel energetically saturated (or polluted) for a few days and then it's as though it lifts off like a cloud.
When I was in Jamaica many years ago I felt my first energy vortexes moving through the island. The person I was with felt nothing. I was riding in the car and felt oddly dizzy. When we stopped and I stepped on the ground I felt like it was spinning and I was falling. Over and over I asked my traveling companion, "did you feel that?!" But they felt nothing.
The next time you feel an episode creeping up on you, embrace it. Get yourself to a safe spot to curl up and rest through it. Use some Rescue Remedy to lesson the anxiety and stress. Stay hydrated. Educate those around you that you are 'having one of your energy spells' and then tell them they need to drive.
