Psychic Medium Laura Scott (Issue #18)
by Laura Scott
I was born to a teenage mother and heroine addicted father who later abandoned us. My mother was so shamed that she was pregnant with me that she refused to name me. I was told that a nun/nurse working in the Labor and delivery room named me.
My life has been a ton of struggles since day one, but I still feel so optimistic and blessed. I have some many talents and understandings that always shock and amaze me, but I still feel scattered with it, and feeling like I am grasping at straws in living my purpose. But I do believe before I leave earth, I am going to affect many people in a positive way. Question, am I correct about the belief, and which direction should I take from here on end?
Many Blessings, Keesha M.
Dear beautiful Keesha,
You are a miracle! Divine! Perfect exactly as is! You are an old soul friend, and in true old soul fashion your attitude, demeanor, and outlook serve as a beacon to all who come in contact with you. You are living your life purpose whenever you are living your truth...your joy....which in your case includes helping others, inspiring others, being a power of example to others. Pursue a field that includes this and advocacy, check out opportunities awaiting you in law.
No matter what our birth story, our biological inheritance, our upbringings...our attitude about these things is a choice. We can choose to live as if everything is a miracle.... or... that nothing is. Whichever we chose becomes our reality. Girl, you came here to be the powerful positive force that you are and you charted to show folks that it IS possible, despite how your 'dance card' looks on the surface. Live on, live strong dear Keesha! Your success is the world's success!

How can spirits be reincarnated and also connect with loved ones through mediums? If the spirit is in human form and having a new life on earth, how can it communicate? Thanks. CS
Once a soul has reincarnated, their contact with a medium would cease. You could know 'of them' by others on The Other Side relaying information....similar to calling a house and the person you are looking for isn't home, but their house mate answers and tells you that 'they're not home, they are on a business trip, would you like to leave a message?'

My wife says I'm reading too much into this experience, but...
I bought a book on meditation. It said to ask a question during meditation so I asked if there was anyone really listening to me the first few times I practiced. Shortly after that I put my reading glasses down on our small round glass kitchen table - this was Thursday. I remembered putting them there and the entire table surface can be seen from any angle. Later that day I went to work on my computer and walked downstairs to get my glasses off the table. They weren't there. My wife & I searched everywhere for them - under the table, on the floor, the chairs, etc., etc. We eat on this round glass table every evening & no glasses were there.
Did the same search on Friday & Saturday. No glasses. I was getting really annoyed with myself since I needed them to read my computer screen. On Sunday, I walked in from our back porch, and from 20 feet away I saw my GLASSES sitting on the round glass kitchen table just where I remembered putting them last Thursday! My wife was over at the kitchen sink. I said, "Where did you find my glasses?". She said, "What glasses, what are you talking about?" I said, "Look on the table." We were both blown away as we walked over to the table & there they were sitting right where I said I left them on the table. We live alone with just the two of us & my wife is NOT a jokester. Yet, even though she can't explain this, she says I'm really reaching to suggest this is possibly an answer to my meditation question. Comments? T.
I'll keep this short and simple. You aren't nuts. This is called bi-location or displacement of objects, when an object is literally 'cloaked off' or pulled into another dimension and becomes invisible to us. Guides, loved ones, and more on The Other Side can use it as a form of communication. I have had this same phenomenon many times, usually with the pen I was just using to write with. If you can let go of your human mind momentarily and then have a laugh of recognition acknowledging The Other Side, the object often releases back to you faster. You aren't losing your marbles, and you aren't reading too much into it. It is what it is: communication response to YOUR OWN request in the form of a displaced object. Pretty neat huh?

Something that has always concerned me, is why God or Jesus, has never made spirit life clearer to us? For people like yourself, you have many of the answers, but to others without your gifts, we struggle on year after year, hearing different versions and not knowing quite who to believe. This is so frustrating, and more upsetting, when you pray always for understanding and wisdom, yet it doesn't come. Why is this? Patricia
Ah yes, your questions are about the perpetual struggle of ego vs. faith. Ego is an earthly condition, one that we ALL have to deal with (mediums and psychics included!). Although we can expect ego to press on us regularly, we'll somehow continually forget that and then feel the pain of contraction that comes from what we perceive as 'blows' to our ego over and over again. Spirit life is made evident to us by spirits, angels, guides, Ascended Masters and more on a regular basis, but most folks are so busy rushing about that they miss the many small signs because they are waiting for only the really big ones.
Both professionals and non-professionals can access information on spirit life. Meditation is one powerful way. Reading books and comparing point of views is another. Writing down your dreams and looking for common threads is another. Simply asking your guides for daily assistance with specific things is another. Writing down their synchronisitic responses and events in a journal becomes a powerful tool for 'proof' and is just one of the reasons I created the Ancient Stardust Progress Journal...to help folks just like you feel more connected with spirit.
Spirit life is quite vast and limitless. The burden of gravity and corporeal limitations are no longer present. Some spirits choose to be quite social, some choose to 'work' towards the greater good, others enjoy attending events. Let me ask you, how does one define an Infinite Vibrational Experience with the limitations of our own languages here? Anyone who has ever translated from one language to another knows that each language has it's own limitations for describing things be it emotions, scenarios or situations. Each interpreter can have their own way of relaying what they see. What one culture defines with a simple gesture, the same gesture in another culture has an entirely different meaning! Seemingly small things like the casual wave of a hand can cause a chain reaction of other meanings as my Greek friends explained to me this summer. With our own human languages so limited and always ego born, it's understandable to see why frustration occurs when trying to describe something so vast and limitless.
Believe what feels right to you Patricia, there is no right or wrong here if you are making your decisions based on love and the place of willingness. What works for you and makes sense to you is what matters. What works for each of us now will likely change and evolve to something else down the road as we continue to grow (a reward for the constant mastering of ego).
I am going to close with sharing a personal story: When my friend Bill left the body several years ago he came to visit me in a dream visitation shortly thereafter to let me know he was happily settled. In the visit he showed me his amazing new house etched into a hillside with a huge terraced pool that cascaded down into several more huge pools. I was blow away by the beauty and scale of the hillside pool and asked him "Bill! How big IS your pool?" And Bill's reply was very matter of fact, "how big do you want it to be?"
Many blessings to you Patricia.

Recently I read the news report of a young man who was senselessly murdered by a classmate. I cannot begin to describe the pain I am feeling regarding this tragedy. I cannot simply seem to let it pass as a news story-even though I do not know this child at all I feel a deep sense of personal loss. In addition my heart cries for his family and friends who were close to him. Immediately upon hearing about his disappearance I seemed to know what happened to him-instinctively somehow. Now, I cannot let this go-do you think this young person somehow is reaching out to me from the other side? What does he want me to do? What can I do to ease my aching heart?
What you are feeling is normal...especially as the veil between the worlds thins. We are becoming desensitized to tragedy and suffering until a particular event pierces us and causes us to slow down and really take it in. Consider this a sign of your own expanding consciousness. Both the 'good' and the 'bad' come in as consciousness expands. There are things you can do so that the 'bad' does not close down your 'circuit board' and leave you feeling so immobilized. I help teach folks how to handle this regularly in private sessions. For starters, you need to stop reading all the negative news.
You asked if you alone are being singled out to assist this young man or if he was reaching out to you from The Other Side, the answer is no. When your consciousness is open, hearing of tragedy effects us differently and your soul goes out to those suffering. Empathy happens. Intuition can happen. If you want to send a general note of condolence and let the family know they are in your prayers, that may help ease your sense of helplessness that comes along with this feeling of awareness. Or you can decide to dedicate a few moments each day to send prayers thru the ethers to those in pain. You can do something locally to donate some time to furthering the cause of education and tolerance. The choices are more than the surface response, so search your heart for something honorable and not ego based and you will do fine.
In peace, Laura

Hi there. I was reading your Q & A on the OfSpirit website, and I'd like to ask a question of you. I'm feeling very stuck in my life at the moment, though my inner life is feeling rich. I've been out of work for quite some time, and I feel like I really need to be doing something with my life, but I'm not sure *what*. I've asked for guidance, but have not received any answers that I'm capable of interpreting. I know my path is one of Healing, but that's about it. Can you offer any insight? I'm too close to the issue to see clearly. Thank you, and blessings on your day. J.
