Psychic Medium Laura Scott (Issue #6)
by Laura Scott
I have been having marriage problems for
some time now but can't seem to pluck up enough courage to walk out,
mostly because I'm worried of where my future lies.
Since having these troubles I've spoken to a medium, had a tarot reading
and participated on a ouija board looking for answers. I was told by the
medium and through the ouija board that an ex boyfriend was going to be
coming back into my life and that we would eventually marry. At this point
of time though it seems an absolute impossibility as we live on opposite
sides of the world. We are however communicating by email and
I have noticed a slight change in our talk but nothing to indicate that we
will eventually end up together. I am so confused right now and wish
I'd never been given this info as I can't seem to clear my mind of those
thoughts. So, my question to you is - what if anything can you see of my
future as this stage?
Well, for starters, I see you learning not
to mess with ouija boards again! The most striking thing about
your email is that you know you aren't where you are supposed to be in
your marriage, but would rather stay in that familiar zone of pain rather
than risk finding happiness by striking out on your own. You think
you can't leave unless another man is in the picture to shore you up.
So here's the important questions: What happened to loving yourself
enough to take care of yourself? What happened to make you
feel so devalued on your own and fearful of the future? Why do you
think you need a new man in your life in order to facilitate change? These
are the bigger issues of your soul that need to be explored with a good
therapist. When you can begin to learn how to love yourself, and
take care of yourself, then you will be able to make empowered decisions
and attract in a healthy partner. You are worth more in life than what you
are positioning yourself for. I will be rooting for you to reach for
change... because the pain of not changing is worse than the pain of
. . . . . . . . .
I have been told that when a loved one
leaves this world in a violent matter, they may not make it to the other
side until their soul is at peace. How do I tell if they did make it
to the other side? How do I know if their soul is at peace? I
am having a hard time with a recent tragedy in my immediate family and
have so many unanswered questions. Thank you, Barbara
I am sorry for your loss. You have
been through a lot. I don't know who told you that info, but it is
rather incomplete. When souls leave the body, be it through
natural circumstances, tragedy, violence or otherwise... a myriad of
things can happen. Some souls will choose to 'leap out' before the
actual event of death, only to watch it in a detached way--like
watching a movie unfold, before heading into the tunnel. Others move
directly to the tunnel with great clarity and purpose. Still others
may move through the tunnel feeling peaceful, but confused about how
they got there. There are many options. Some souls may choose not to
enter the tunnel immediately and remain earth bound.
Take heart Barbara, your loved one was swiftly moved through the tunnel
and into the cocooning chamber for healing on The Other Side. During
that time, they are placed under careful guidance and protection. You can
help by sending them prayers of love and peace ...AND by knowing that they
have been released from any suffering and are in a truly wonderful place.
Your healing and peaceful state of mind will make their healing that much

My husband and I have been separated for
almost four years now. He has lived with his girlfriend for three
years and they have been having problems for some time now and are seeking
counseling. He and I are great friends and he calls me almost everyday
although he & don't think we could work things out as far as living
together and his girlfriend has a problem with our friendship. My daughter
tolerates the girlfriend but the girlfriend insists on attending every
event with her father including our (mine & my daughters) hobby of
riding and showing horses and neither of us want that which is causing
problems in her fathers relationship with his girlfriend when he wants to
spend time with us at the ranch. We are civil with his girlfriend
but we do not want to share every event with her too. What should I
do to help the situation?
All parents, especially estranged ones,
need to spend time alone, one-on-one with their children. That means
there will be events where your daughter and her father get to privately
connect, and you will not be included. The issue here is really
between your estranged husband and his girlfriend. He needs to be
clearer about which invitations are extended to him, and which invitations
are extended to him and her as a couple. You can help do your part
by being fair when extending those invitations, and making sure to extend
some of both. The rest is up to him.

I recently experienced the loss of my dear
brother. Like Bob Olson, a real skeptic and one who usually reasons
away strange occurrences, I found myself experiencing a strong sense of
his presence. Telling myself that it was grief that was causing
these feelings, I tried to put them away. However, they began to
occur more frequently as time passed, not less. I began researching
the spirit world, through books, internet and finally had a couple of
readings with mediums. In my search, I began to feel pulled to
connect with my own spirit guides and have begun meditation exercises to
do so. I pray for clarity and the discipline to help me in my
endeavor and I am working on patience but know that lessons in trust are
coming! Patience is a hard one for me but trust - well that one
scares me! I know that it must be a process but would love to know
what you suggestions you could offer.
Love and Light,
First, my condolences over your loss.
Good job using this event as a catalyst for personal growth and learning.
Your brother is very proud of you. Continue to use this sacred
time as a time of being present. Keep a journal of the synchronistic
events unfolding around you. Use a Zen approach: Observe
and be present. Never force. Remember, you do not have to hold
the sun up in the sky, or the stars for that matter. You do not
personally control the tides. Nature shows us over and over again
how to have faith in the larger scheme of things. Everything is
happening exactly on time.

I have been interested in psychic mediums
and have been following most of their work. I have just been
wondering that when we cross over are we able to see and experience the
whole picture as in outer space or are we limited to earth? Thank
you, Christine T.
Thanks for your question. Yes, we
have access to the whole picture and then some. Once we are no
longer bound by the limited earthly mind...literally, the sky is the
limit. Want to 'live' in a house? picture it, and click,
you've got it! Interested in attending the lectures in Sector 5?
Whoosh, you are there. Someone you love getting married on
earth? Presto, you are in the viewing room celebrating.
Feeling social? zap, you are off in a large area communing with
friends. Pretty awesome, eh?

I am having a huge problem with my family.
My family is having problems taking me seriously and respecting my
boundaries. I recently gave birth a few months ago and against my
expressed concerns, my relatives exposed my child to a contagious,
incurable disease. When spoke up, they twisted it around and made it
my fault. I think they owe me an apology, buy they keep telling me I
should apologize to them. They often say mean things and try to pick
fights with my husband. They act nice and invite us over and then verbally
abuse us and wish harm on us and our child while we are there. They are my
family but I don't think I should be subjecting my daughter to this. Do
you have any idea what I should do?
Worried about baby in MA
This is about a whole lot more than a
baby--this is about coming to terms with a selfish, manipulative and
harmful family. Apology, shmology. It doesn't matter. What
does matter is that you have a right to take care of yourself and protect
yourself from harmful situations. And as a parent, it is your primary job
to protect your child from harmful situations. Period. Being spiritual
does not mean that we become doormats! It's time to take a deep breath and
see your family for who they really are. Professional counseling can help
support you in staying clear and strong, and to learn how to stop
expecting them to change. Honey, when people show you who they are,
believe them! I wish you much courage, clear strong
boundaries, and plenty of joyous, healthy years of parenting ahead.

My dog knows when I am coming home even
though it is a different time each day.
He waits for me at the window. How could he know? Is he psychic?
Yes, but in a different way than us humans
are. Companion animals are very sensitive to our energy. There was a
great study done on this a couple years back, documented on film for TLC,
that at the precise moment that a pet owner would decide to leave work,
their beloved dog would go and begin a sitting vigil by their front door
awaiting their arrival home. This held true no matter what day, and
even when the owner changed their schedule over the course of several days
and continued to vary their return time. Each and every time, the
dog promptly got up and started their vigil as if on invisible cue at the
same time as the owner decided to leave work. They showed this from
several different scenarios with different owners and different
animals. It was fascinating. We need to give our animal
companions more credit for what they know through our vibratory
shifts and intuitive pathways. They aren't called God's Creatures

My husband is diagnosed as having Post
Traumatic Stress Disorder, and is on several medications. I find it
hard to reconcile with his condition. I don't feel it is right to
make his condition the center stage of our lives. Have I been doing
the right thing?
Will he eventually get better? Thank you. Hashima
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a
serious and legitimate medical condition. The degree to which
someone with PTSD is suffering can greatly affect their daily plans and
overall quality of life. This condition is no less legitimate
than diabetes, and you wouldn't roll your eyes and impatiently tap your
foot while waiting for a diabetic to check their blood sugar would you?
Or serve meals to deliberately jeopardize their health would you? Or
yell at them to start making their own darn insulin? Well, I
certainly hope not! I suggest you speak with your husband about
setting up a plan for how he feels and what he needs from you. For
instance, if he is having a good day and wants to venture out, perhaps you
can shift your plans and enjoy it together. If he is having a rough day,
and cannot keep plans, but feels comfortable being alone, you will need to
know this so that you can make plans to head out without him. If he
doesn't want to be alone, and you need some time away, hire a visiting
nurse or companion to stay with him. Enjoy him on his good days, and
love him on his not so good days. Be patient and gentle. Added
stress doesn't help anything, especially those suffering from PTSD.
In addition to his condition, the medications also come with their own
sets of side effects. This is what 'for better, or for worse' means.
You need to find a support group or therapist for yourself so that you can
release some of the growing hostility and resentment you are having.
Being supportive and kind is not the same as being enabling or babying.
Nor is it being hostile and resentful. A good professional will help
you sort that out. Praying for patience and understanding will help
bring you peace. Good luck friend.
