Psychic Medium Laura Scott (Issue #4)
by Laura Scott
I will be moving out of the state I presently live in soon, however my
house in this state has not sold yet, and my husband has offered to stay
here until it is. My major concern is that I do not feel he will be
joining me when the house sells. For two years we have had problems
since I found out he cheated on me. We are supposedly trying to work
our problems out, but, I get the impression, that he does not really want
to. I'm desperately afraid he will cheat again, and doesn't really
love me at all. I am very confused, and don't know where to turn.
What are your thoughts on this?
Having him stay behind to oversee the house sale is not necessary. A
good realtor can take care of that for you. It is understandable to
have concerns over more infidelity once you have been betrayed, but I
think the bigger issue is what, if anything, has been done to assure you
he wouldn't? What did you each learn from that painful time? What
are you BOTH willing to do to promote healing in the marriage?
Relationships are a two way street. Each partners must do
their share of work. If one partner is willing and the other one
isn't, you can't just compensate for their share. Without restored trust,
real peace and happiness will always be out of reach. Having to
keeping an eye on someone at all times is not a marriage partnership; it
is a sentence.
It seems to me that you already know that things are quite shaky between
you and your husband. The bigger question I need to ask you is why
are you willing to stay in a relationship where you don't believe you are
loved? Don't you think you are worth more? This may be
something you can discuss with a good counselor. I wish you peace.
I often hear about people feeling the presence, or getting signs from
their loved one who passed away. My father died about a year and a
half ago, where were very close since I was a baby, and I loved him very
much. I look for signs that he is around me, but I don't see or feel
his presence. Am I doing something wrong or trying to hard? Please
give me some info on what I could do to let me know he is near? Thank you.

Dear Mary Ann,
I hear this question a lot. The problem is that we are wired here on
earth with a much more linear mind than universal energy. The signs
can be all around us and we dismiss them--for lack of certainty or
'proof.' Try to relax and let go of the idea of
connecting with him at all. Sometimes trying too hard can shut down
the flow of things. I suggest you make a synchronicity journal.
Start by banishing the word coincidence from your vocabulary. Every
time we call something a coincidence, we are missing an opportunity to
connect in with The Other Side. Make a habit to jot down all the
synchronistic things that are happening on a daily or weekly basis.
Use gratitude to talk to your father, with faith that he does indeed hear
you, and then watch for the synchronistic signs....hearing his laughter,
times when he would say 'way to go!', having electrical
interferences with lights, or phones, or electronics. Affirm that:
"despite appearances, everything in my life is working for good. And
so it is. Amen." Remember, our loved ones are doing the
best they can. Only the language they use to talk with us has changed,
that is all. Love is eternal.
I had a reading with you this past fall. I don't want to start
depending on psychics to figure out my life but it's about my former
boyfriend. After I finally decided to move on with my life, and
things were going good, he popped back up out of the blue. We
talked and it looks like he wants me back. I guess I need
encouragement or something because my strength around him is not good.
What should I do?
HE wants you back? What happened to what you wanted? Empowered
women don't predicate their lives on the whim of a man, honey. They
stay focused and on course. They make choices that are healthy for
them. Remember, the Universe will test you to see if you really are
Sally: "I'll never do that again!"
The Universe: "hey, did you hear that, Sally says she'll never
do that again, let's send her a pop quiz to see if she really means
it!" and viola! a test is born.
If a partner is emotionally healthy, they'll wait for you to be ready.
With no fuss. If they are not healthy enough to wait, why the heck
would you want them? (...unless you've convinced yourself that this
is the absolute last chance on earth for you to ever be loved....which
simply isn't true!).
Should we follow a religion to believe in God, or live our lives and see
what happens after death?
Rene Starink, Crete, Greece
Great question! In contrast to some powerful religious factions, I
believe that we are each free to worship in the way that feels right and
comfortable to us. Despite their pontifications, no single organized
religion has the inside 'track to God'. Could you imagine a God who would
only let the Baptists in?, or just the Jews?, or the Hindus?, or only the
Christians? That's ridiculous! We need to leave room for
all interpretations, and to increase our understanding and tolerance for
all people, on all places of the path.
The little boy in China who meditates everyday and prays to Buddha, the
girl in Ireland faithfully attending services at church each Sunday, the
couple in Jerusalem lighting their first menorah, the family
in the Midwest baptizing their baby, the man in Rome who scatters his
wife's ashes at a candlelight service, the nurse in Canada giving Reiki to
her patient long after her shift ended...each one of these people are
linked by their faith and their willingness to participate in a ritual
onto God, the Great Unseen Healing Force, Allah, Buddha, Jesus, and so
Do what feels right to you. Explore as many or as few religious
practices as you like. Open your horizon to sample and embrace
whatever aspects of organized religion that feel good to you. Leave room
to discover the God of your understanding. If the organization of
things turn you off, consider a more native American approach, and let
nature be your inspiration. (How DO those birds know when to migrate
south and when to return? How does a butterfly travel thousands of
miles? Why did those elephants cry when they came upon the bones of
their brother who had died? What is it that gets a tiny seed,
the size of dot, to turn into a wonderful tree?...and so on...)
Whatever your choice, whatever your upbringing, remember--spirituality and
religion are often two entirely different things. It is possible to
be a highly spiritual person and never embrace any particular religion or
church. Likewise, it is possible to be highly religious
and be lacking spirituality. You are free to choose and evolve.
God loves you any way! Just be a kind and decent human being, do
your best, do good where you can, and I'll see you on The Other Side.
Yesterday, I thought I would treat myself to an early birthday gift and,
following some careful research on the OfSpirit website, booked an
appointment with a psychic medium of high repute. I have always been
interested in these things and have had some prior experiences many years
ago which hinted at there being more to life. The medium was a nice man
and the reading was so far off base it was, well silly, and provided zero
validation for me. Based on this, I keep feeling as thought I want to cry
and that all of this spirit stuff is garbage. What can I do about this
crisis of faith?
I am sorry that your experience was such a let down. Although we
psychic mediums are human and do have bad days, most reputable
professionals would be open to hearing from you and talking with you about
This is also why it's so important when choosing a professional that you
listen to your own intuition and how you feel about their voice, their
office, their ability to interact with you , etc. - and to choose a
practitioner that you feel drawn to. Remember, the intuitive arts
are not a one size fits all. And one bad reading does not mean the
whole thing is bunk--just like one bad dentist does not make them all
quacks, or one friend's idea of a perfect meal may be the complete
opposite from yours.
The one thing you need to hold onto here is your faith. Use this
experience as a way to learn and to grow. What can you do
differently in the future to help ensure a good reading? First, use
your intuition to be guided to the right practitioner at the right time.
We are all different, some specializing in different things than others.
Find the right match. Second, examine your expectations. Make
sure that you are keeping it reasonable. Third, plan your session
for when you have time to slow down and relax, perhaps doing some
breathing or meditating on your intentions and expectations beforehand.
Fourth: Remember that you have the power to end a session if you are
uncomfortable, and that ultimately, you are always responsible for you.
