Ask Psychic Medium Laura Scott (Issue #5)
by Laura Scott

Dear Laura,

I want to pray or program for the safety and health of the people of Iraq and our own armed forces, but I feel I might be wasting my energy.  War of any kind pains me.  Is it fruitful to pray for an entire people, or is the energy dissipated because it is too vast a request?
Merrillee

Dear Merrillee,

Many people have been reaching out to me since the war began and are looking for answers and direction. Whenever it's possible, please limit the amount of news you are listening to each day (this is good advice for ALL times).   While it is important to be informed, it is also important not to overwhelm yourself and jeopardize your health and well-being.  If you would like to do something, but don't know exactly what, then pray!  Did you know that science today now supports the power of prayer with several ground breaking studies?  The results have been unanimous...prayer works!   No matter what your affiliation or indoctrination.  No matter whether you do it on the way to the gym, or by sitting in a church, or on a mat in the full lotus position.  It works!  If the pharmaceutical companies could figure out a way to put the power of prayer into a pill, they'd have a cure for everything!  If you want to learn more about the power of prayer and the ground breaking studies being done around the globe, check out the work of Dr. Larry Dossey, for starters.

The Universe receives all prayer requests with equal reverence and solemnity.  From the person praying for their beloved ailing pet, to another facing bankruptcy, to the someone praying for an "A" on their finals, and another asking for understanding in their family, and another still, fearing for their personal safety.  Whether it's a precise request or a broad one, studies show that prayer works.  The newest evidence shows that the nuances of prayer can create varying levels of accomplishment all within the genre of successful results -with some prayers being even more successful than others.  This is not linked to any particular religion or creed, or worthiness of request or requestee, but moreover,  it seems that those who leave room in their prayers for God to work magic (as opposed to trying to direct God's results), often see the greatest results.

Use the power of prayer to help you feel more at peace.  When we are each at peace, then we can be empowered.   What you decide to do with that empowerment is up to you...  You might send peace and prayers out for everyone involved.  You might pray for the leaders of the world to act in line with The Highest and The Best for all beings concerned.  You might visualize waves of peace and Higher Understanding washing over us and uniting us all.   You might pray for healing for all those affected.  Any of these would be wonderful gifts to give not only yourself, but to the rest of the world community as well.

. . . . . . . .

Dear Laura,

Why are some people psychic and others not?
the morning walking club

Dear MWC,

The answer is simple.  Balance.  We need all kinds of folks on all different levels to help make the world go round.   Think about it, why are some people artistic while others are not? Why are some folks great cooks while others are unable to boil water?  Why are some people tremendous athletes?   Or wonderful  writers?  Why are some people left handed and others right handed?  Why is it that some folks can sing brilliantly, while others, despite all their heartfelt desire, can barely carry the most marginal of tunes?

We are all born with intuition, but as we age, the veil slips down more firmly for some than others.  Without regular practice on the intuitive "muscles", they atrophy and disappear as we leave childhood behind. Some psychics require little to no practice in order to maintain it because they are naturals; others require regular exercises and  pursuits of study; and for others--despite all earnest efforts--sometimes the best one is able to muster is a few off key notes.  Find what you are naturally good at and be proud. We need all degrees, nuances and measures for balance here on earth.

. . . . . . . .

Deara Laura,

What is the one main thing a person can do to improve their communicating with their guides?
Roberta

Dear Roberta,

Two words:  Pay attention! Suspend your linear mind as best you can, and raise your awareness to the things happening all around you.  Guides are governed by their own set of Universal Laws.  If you make a request, they must respond.  Keep it simple and ask for help with one thing at time. Then pay attention to what's going on around you, especially the synchronistic things.  Remember, guides support us, they don't control us.

Dear Laura,

Over 3 and a half years ago I dealt with an episode of cancer.  Since then, I have been well, and undergoing a truly beautiful spiritual awakening. I feel completely different about so many things, and have been choosing more spiritual paths. Recently, I was diagnosed with another suspicious mass.  I am getting enormous pressure from my family and doctor to undergo the same invasive, toxic, radical treatment I used before.  I know my family loves me, but they are not hearing me.  I would like to use alternative avenues for treatment instead.  My family is really upset, and I feel confused and conflicted.  Their pressure is beginning to get to me.  Please help.
MJ

Dear MJ,

For some time now in our society, Eastern philosophies and ideas have been pitted against Western ones when it comes to medicine. It's been a real tug of war, with no clear winners, and plenty of casualties.  The word "alternative" when applied to medicine, lifestyle, etc. has been given an negative, and even fanatical vibration at times.  Consumers have been made to feel  that choosing one path of care is completely exclusionary to another.

You and you alone have domain over your body. You are as unique as your own DNA.  You have free will, and plenty of choices...so why not feel free to pick and choose from it all? God put a lot of choices down here, numerous pathways to walk and examine. Why we should feel forced to choose only one is quite a mystery.

I am a big fan of the emerging concept of "integrated or complimentary medicine." This means being free to pick and choose from all sides of the fence simultaneously, and to create a whole health plan based on your individual needs.   For example, this could mean a combination of spiritual, surgical, dietary, botanical and chemical options.  I suggest that you talk with your family and create a plan of action based on taking the best from all sides and then doing what feels right to you.

Your family's real concern comes from their fear of losing you.  Perhaps you could enlist their help with quickly researching MANY options, and have them work as your assistants, and team members as you create your own individualized plan.  By including them in this bigger picture you can choose to use the illness as an opportunity for building a bridge of education, respect and understanding.   It is common for us to fear what is unknown, and in a crisis situation, many choose to stick with what they know or what seems easiest.  But this may or may not always be the best solution. I hope you can stay open to this dialogue and understanding as you make your journey.  Abundant good health to you friend!

Dear Laura

I work in a large office and am having trouble with a coworker "T".  This person sits near me and is constantly complaining, negative and needy. They don't have any other friends in the office, so when "T" gravitates towards me  I am at a loss as to what to do.  I have recently been able to make the connection that I actually feel physically drained by this person from our interactions.  Since I cannot avoid "T" entirely, what can I do to protect myself from feeling so depleted by their constant neediness and negativity?
-J.

Dear J.,

The person you described is actually a type of  "energy vampire"--because left to their own insatiable needs, these individuals will inadvertently suck every last drop of energy and enthusiasm from those around them.  They are here to teach the rest of us  important lessons about boundaries.  Typically, someone like this has  no bottom to their need, and  has no idea that they are draining the life out of the rest of us.

Reclaim your space there with some empowering cleansing rituals.  Get a spray bottle and fill it with water and 3-5 drops of a nice essential oil like lavender and equal drops of rubbing alcohol (which disperses the oil.)  Spray it to change the vibe when you first get there, throughout the day, after your break, and post encounters.  If others in the office protest to the use of scents, use some flower essences which have no odor (like Dr. Bach's Walnut, Crab Apple and Chestnut Bud essences) to cleanse the air.

Another approach would be to try and speak with them.  If you find it impossible to be lovingly direct, or even kiddingly direct ( "Whoa T! You are sucking the life out of me!" said laughingly as you get back to work), then have a few pat phrases that you repeat over and over again as you keep busy, like  "hi T, sorry, I don't have time to help you, I have some projects that must get out. " Or, you can  just be completely silent, without nodding your head, and engaging.  When they pause to ask you why you are so quiet, or why you aren't available for them you can calmly say "It's just that sometimes I don't think you really want to hear a solution, you just seem to like rehashing the problems.  And I am making a conscious choice to stay solution oriented."  None of this need be said with anger.  Understanding is a mighty tool.  They are unwittingly offering you the opportunity to exercise and grow your own boundaries. And remember, "no one can take advantage of you without your permission."

Dear Laura,

My 5 year old daughter keeps telling me that she talks to the angels when she sleeps. At first this was cute, but now I am beginning to worry that she is too obsessed with it.  She has very vivid dreams and nightmares, and also talks in her sleep.  What do you think I should do? thank you,
AG

Dear AG,

Relax.  From what I can tell, you are the one obsessing about this, not your daughter.
Everything she is experiencing is normal for kids her age.  All of us visit The Other Side in our sleep, whether we remember it or not.  Take some deep breaths and listen when she is recounting her night stories to you the next day.  You can take comfort in knowing her angels are working so closely with her, AND you just may learn a few things as well!
