I just want to shout it from the rooftops that energy healing is changing my life!

Stuff that I used to suffer with just doesn’t exist for me anymore.  The stuff that comes up now I’m able to clear out really quickly.  I mean *really* quickly.  Like, in an hour vs in a week or a month.

If I had the choice between a nice dinner out, a massage or an energy healing session, I’d choose an energy healing session every time!  Well, I’d probably choose a nice dinner out once in a while too, actually, but the energy healing session lasts longer and it

C HA N G E S    M Y    L I F E !

If you feel like it’s time to make some serious changes in your life and you’re feeling stuck — then maybe it’s time to have a session.  The results are fast, gentle and permanent.  That’s not to say more stuff won’t come up, because it will . . .  but you’ll be moving along the path.  You won’t be stuck.

Take good care of yourself, friends.  You have loving guidance along your path.  Don’t be afraid to ask for help.  And, enjoy the scenery as you travel.

Love of the highest to you all!


Hi, beloveds!

There are times when we must be teachers and times when we must be students.

There are times when we must humble ourselves to be the student and times when we must rise up to be a teacher.

I know some people who are natural teachers.  They jump at the chance to  share what they know, to whomever wants to learn.

And, I know some natural students (I’m one of those too).  They soak up every learning opportunity.

Sometimes, though, natural students and natural teachers need to reverse their roles.  Sometimes the teacher needs to be the student and the student needs to teach.  I see that it can be a difficult reversal at times.

One of my irk-ies is when natural teachers fail to have the humility to set aside teaching in favor of learning something new.  If we get stuck in our role as teacher, we lose some mental flexibility and start to get rigid.  It can be easy to stay stuck in the ego and not want to seem “stupid” or “less-than” and be willing to admit that there’s something you don’t know.

Just as irk-y is when students gather and gather, but then don’t share.  It’s important to keep the flow of knowledge and wisdom circulating.  There are times when you must speak and not just listen.  There are times when the student is ready and you are the teacher.  It’s important to arrive.

So, which are you most naturally:  teacher or student?

Are you willing to step out of your role and try reversing it?  Are you able to see when a divine meeting has arrived — one where you can be the teacher or the student with another?

The teacher/student role comes up as an energetic sticking point between people pretty often in my practice.  Past times when being a teacher — usually a bad one — causes pain for oneself or for another and that causes problems.  Or, past lives when one wanted to be a student and couldn’t, or was forced to be, or was mistreated.  Just issues to resolve.  Just layers.

I’m embarking on a new journey — yoga teacher training.  So, I’m encountering within myself my own issues of becoming a teacher.  It’s a good leg of the journey — very interesting.  I’m learning more about myself and stretching myself and that feels really good.

It’s bringing balance within myself.  And, I love balance.

Blessings today, friends!

Blessings today!

In yoga today my teacher was talking about compost — you know, like one of my earlier posts.  How we can begin to see those less-than-lovely aspects of life as fertile soil for new growth.  I was pretty into my own inner practice, so I missed a lot of the details of her words, but the meaning got all the way in.

I’ve got another garden-ish topic:  weeding.  I’ve always kind of liked weeding.  I like how it makes the garden look tidy when you’re done.  I like how you’re able to discern what’s to keep and what’s to go.  I like how it feels to get my hands dirty and have something to show for my effort.  (Not so crazy about my aching fingernails and having to weed again next week, but, oh well . . .)

A train of thought came to me today about weeding.  This weekend I was weeding some grass from my flowerbeds in the backyard and it was a multi-stepped process.  I had to move the mulch out of the way.  Then pull the grass.  But the grass we have here in Memphis grows by runners, so as you go to pull out some of it, you’re immediately confronted with an offshoot.  And, the root systems are pretty tough.

So, I found myself working pretty hard to remove a little section of grass, about 4 feet x 4 feet.  I had to uncover the source by moving the coverings out of the way.  Then I dug to the roots.  Then I tugged them up.  Then there was another root system right next to that one and I tugged it up.  Then the runners — all the inter-connected runners.  I dug those up.  It was a lot of work.

That’s how my energy work goes too.  Sometimes it’s pretty straight-forward and easy — you just clear out the easy top layers and pull out the little weed.  But, other times, you’ve got to do some digging.  The roots can be stubborn (that would be the layers of resistance we encounter).  Sometimes you think you’re dealing with one thing and you find that it’s another thing altogether.  One things leads to another and pretty soon you’re digging all over the place.  Sometimes you’re not sure if it’s the same issue you began with.  But in the end, when all the digging and uprooting is done, the space is clean and clear.  Tidy and lovely.  Ahhhh.

Then there are times when we hit a rock and we can’t get to the roots of the matter unless we unearth the rock!  Now, don’t worry.  Even though the rock seems so heavy, so solid, so unmovable, it’s really just another layer.  So, we tip over the rock.  There, underneath is another system of roots to be dug up.  Not so bad, especially if the rock had been in a sunny place.  You pull out those weeds and put the place in order again.

But, I’m sorry to say that there are some rocks that are in the damp, shady spots and they’ve got some pretty repulsive critters living under them!  Like hundreds of little ants who need to move their hundreds of little eggs.  Or that creepy crawly orange thing with a hundred legs who’s scurrying around trying to find some other rock to crawl under.

Yep, there are those kinds of layers . . .  Again, no problem.  We just correct for all of that repulsiveness too.  We just get neutral, neutral, neutral.  We just weed, weed, weed.  We clean up the place and leave it nice and tidy.

[wiping the dirt off my hands]

Sending blessings on your weeding task.  Surrounding you with the clarity to know what needs to go and what needs to stay.  Surrounding you with the strength to pull it all up by the roots.  Surrounding you with the courage to lift up the rocks, no matter what might be living under them.

Holding the vision that when you’re done, your garden is beautiful — just as you truly are.

The love of the divine to you today!

Although this came to me as a little greeting, the angels want to magnify it for you.

THE LOVE OF THE DIVINE IS WITH YOU TODAY!  The love of the divine is with you every day.  It is within you, surrounding you, lifting you.  It is you.  And you are it.

Let this message warm you like the sun’s rays.  Let yourself feel it.

There are lots of things on my mind today.  One thing I want to share is a little success story of mine.  Today I was out running a few errands and I was in a shop preparing to buy something.  I was hoping for a little advice and help from the shop woman, but instead she met me with,

“Just tell me what you want.  I’m not going to help you figure it out, because if I get it wrong, you’re gonna come back and fuss at me.”  And, she walked away.

Now, let me say that this kind of thing annoys me.  First of all, it’s not very helpful.  Second, she’s putting her stuff on me — in what way am I projecting the personality trait of someone who “fusses” at people?  Next, she’s putting out victim drama big time — obviously it’s hurt her in the past to have tried to be helpful and then had someone be upset with her — and she’s keeping the drama alive.  Also, this sort of thing starts an energetic chain reaction and ends up creating a collective consciousness within the store.  Plus, this was an openly (and proud-to-be-) Christian store and I found myself judging the exchange to be a little hypocritical — aren’t Christians striving to be in loving service to one another?

So, there I am standing there with a fantastic opportunity.

On the one hand, I could let my ego take control and say something nasty to the woman, which would create all sorts of energetic and conscious nastiness — and guarantee terrible customer service.

Or, I could silently seeth in anger and indignance.  How dare she!!  Nasty, hypocrite!  I could call her all kinds of names inside my head, blame her for ruining my day, judge her on all kinds of levels.  Launch into a series of judgments . . .  you get the gist.  And, in the end ruin my own day.

Instead, let me tell you what I did.  As she turned her back and I began figure out what I wanted to buy, I also began to explore this energetically.  I found compassion for her that she felt like a victim and didn’t find joy and love in her job.  I began to forgive her for her attitude.  I forgave all the people who treated her unfairly.  I forgave all the blaming.  I forgave myself for reacting and entertaining the idea of judging.

I quickly did some Yuen energy corrections on the situation, making sure that I didn’t take on any of her “stuff”.

All of this took about 30 seconds.  When she returned — and this is the great part — her attitude had softened and she was helpful (of course — that’s her true nature!).  I held nothing toward her and met her only with openness and love.  In the end she gave me a discount on what I bought!

It was a win-win.  It ended up being an energetically uplifting exchange where it could have been a murky swamp of nastiness.

One thing that I take away from Dr. Phil McGraw is when he advises people that someone has to be a hero in the relationship.  Someone needs to be the first to do something different and healing.

Now, I’m not trying to make it sound like this little exchange was heroic.  But, to overcome our ego’s tendency to create division and strife in our life is a victory to be celebrated!  She didn’t have any idea of what my process was, but I think she felt better afterward.  And, I certainly did!

I believe that I was standing in and acting from place of light and love — and she could feel it, I am sure.  It’s a way that we can begin to bring heaven to earth, my friends.  It’s just little stuff like that.  It’s little — it’s not rocket science.

But, trust me, it’s not always as easy as it seems.  These little opportunities come out of nowhere.  Hopefully, as you go out and begin to overcome your ego, the person you’re training with will give you a few seconds to find your center (like this woman did when she turned her back for a little bit).  It’s then where you can begin to feel the nudge of the divine encouraging you to rise above your ego.

You are not your ego.  You are pure light, pure love and pure wisdom.  Let those truths about yourself rise to the top and shine out.  You’ll feel amazing!  It’s a quiet power.  It’s magic, really!

Love, love, love today, dear friends!

Hi, friends!

For any of you who read my last post, remember I said I’d get around to figuring out why I drew to me that unpleasant task of cleaning up my dog’s accident?

Well I did.  It was a message to myself that I’ve been surrounded by other people’s s**t lately.  Um hmmm.  Got it.  Point taken, Self.

So, I cleaned this mess up, but in general, I’ll let others handle their own messes.  Unless they ask for my help and then I will be honored to assist — while remaining energetically neutral, that is.

You know, it’s funny.  I was sort of getting it along the way . . .  I knew I wasn’t feeling great, physically or psychically.  I knew I was feeling energetically heavy — I did the clearing the other day (and I did some venting to a couple of friends and my dear husband).

But what a clear, unavoidable, smelly, messy, spot-on message the accident was!

You’ve gotta love it!  There’s brilliance there . . .

[My angels are standing around clapping and nodding at me for putting it all together for myself . . .  Thanks, angels!]

Okay, so I’m sitting here doing the “final analysis” on the dog s**t thing.  One part of me says, don’t leave people locked in the laundry room and stuff like this won’t happen . . .  no, that’s not quite it . . .

The angels tell me not to get drawn into other people’s dramas.  Stay separate from them.  Let other people learn as they’ll learn and if they ask for guidance, I’ll be glad to help.  Otherwise let them be.  Stay energetic separate.  Certainly, don’t follow people down the vibrational ladder — that’s not a bit helpful to me or to them.

Stay vibrationally uplifted by being in nature, by meditating, staying grounded (for me this often means vigorous yoga or dance) and consciously looking at the light and love that is inherently present in each person.

I confess I let myself forget that inherent light and love with a couple of people:  a snitty receptionist, a couple of Memphis drivers and a couple of other people.  A good reminder — I make my way back to A Course In Miracles work.  I will forgive myself and I will forgive them.  I will let go of the need to blame and to separate myself.  I will forgive the momentary lapse into dark seeing.

Welcome back light seeing!  Welcome back clarity and love!  Welcome back, Self!

Spreading the light of awareness!  Blessings of that light to you too!

Hi, friends!  Ooh, it’s a beautiful day in Memphis today!  In a little while I’m going to take a walk outside and enjoy the colors, sounds and scents of nature.

At the moment, though, I’m posting this because I’m putting off an unpleasant task — cleaning up an accident my dog made.    When I returned home from my workout earlier I noticed it and for now I closed the door on it.  But, I have to deal with it soon.

I admit it — these kinds of things irritate me.  They’re not part of my “plan” for the day . . .  I don’t prefer to deal with this.

From a law of attraction point of view, I know that I drew this to myself for some reason — I’ll figure that out later.  And, I know it’s a chance for me to notice the contrast, in other words:  those things I don’t want, so I can focus my mind on what I do want.

A quick attempt at an affirmation around this could be something like, “Keeping my home clean and tidy is easy and effortless for me.  I enjoy a clean, tidy home.”  Yes, I’ll work on that . . .

Have any of you noticed a heaviness lately?  I really have.  It’s an energetic heaviness that’s been with me for the last couple of days.  Some of my colleagues are mentioning it and so are a couple of clients.  Things are coming up to be addressed.  For some people those are fears, for others it’s heavy, intense emotions and for others it’s disappointments and judgments.

For me it’s been a sort of constant irritation with situations, which I don’t usually experience.  Lately, I’ve been able to stay energetically neutral and separate from unpleasant people and attitudes, allowing them to be there and not to affect me at all.  But these last few days, I confess, I’m getting drawn into some sort of drama or general negativity.  Ick!

I invite you to join me in energetically correcting these things — if you choose to join me, you can receive these Yuen corrections.  Just hold the intention of receiving them and say to yourself, “Correct as Laura would.”

Here’s what I’m working for myself:

Negative energy in and out

Psychic energy in and out

Optimism / not optimism

Pessimism / not pessimism

Judgment of God/self/other  /  not judgment of God/self/other

Balanced / centered / stable

Separate / independent / empty / energy

Laura’s energy = Laura’s energy (substitute your name here)

All closings

– – – – – – – – – – – – –

There!  I feel tons better — I hope you do too.

Some of us are becoming increasingly sensitive to negative energies and it’s easy for us to pick them up, like sponges.  Hold the intention that you remain separate from those things that you don’t like.  Another way of looking at that is to ask your angels to put up a shield for you so that only love moves between you and other people and situations  — and the negative energy stays out.

There’s no need to judge the negative energy (that would mean that it still triggers you, so there’s more work to do on it) — we just let it pass by us without affecting us.  It really is possible.

Okay, friends.  I’m off to take on the unpleasant task.  “It’s easy and effortless for me to keep a clean and tidy home.  I enjoy — find joy in — a clean and tidy (and good-smelling) home.”

What’s your affirmation for today?  Whatever it is, I join you in it.

Love to you all!

A question from a reader:  “Why do people feel they need to suffer so much?  Some people seem to hold the belief that if they’re not suffering each day, they’re not doing something right.  Why?”

When I begin working on this issue from an energetic perspective, all kinds of interesting things come up to be corrected and healed.  A big one is the false belief that the more you suffer, the more spiritual you are.  There are often religious and collective consciousness beliefs to be cleared.

Another big one can be past life karma.  For example, in a past life you’ve caused someone else to suffer or witnessed someone else suffering and didn’t do anything to help and now you feel you must suffer in this lifetime to make up for that.  You hold the energy that you deserve to suffer.

A separate caveat to that is the belief that if I suffer — if I’m a victim — then I’m not hurting someone else.  I’m not a victimizer.  There is often a past life connection here too — this person wants so much to do no harm that he or she takes on the victim role instead.

When I do energy healings around this, I always work both sides of it — how does the client feel about suffering and not suffering, being a victim and not being a victim.  I check things like responsibility, blame, forgiveness issues, memories, karma, trauma . . .

I like what Stuart Wilde says in Life Wasn’t Meant to Be a Struggle (I’m paraphrasing) — there is a difference between effort and struggle.  Yes, life requires some effort — just like a tiger chasing and attacking its prey — but the natural order of things is not struggle.  The tiger doesn’t find the attack a struggle, something that drains her.  She expends the energy and receives the reward from it.

Sometimes we get a caught up in the struggle of it.  And, it can be tempting to hang out with other people who are struggling and talk about how bad things are.  (Ooh, that can be a major energetic sink-hole — one that’s tough to climb out of . . .)  Sometimes, out of compassion, we may join people in the sink-hole even if we don’t really feel that way ourselves.  Although that may feel noble at the time, in fact there’s most likely a guilt piece that could be healed — how do you feel about doing well when someone else is suffering?

The quote from Marianne Williamson that I posted the other day alluded to this as well — kind of from the opposite perspective.  It doesn’t help someone else if we hold back our light — in fact, by shining our light as brightly as we can, it gives other people permission to seek their own brightness.

Our angels absolutely want to help us with this issue.  They say that our truest nature is one of bliss and joy, not despair.  They surround us with love and comfort and try to draw us out of that place of suffering into a place of perspective where we can see our earthly circumstances for what they really are.

They’d love to help us step out of struggle and suffering and into motivated effort.  What do we need to do to move our lives forward?  They’ll help us figure that out if we’re willing to step out of the suffering.  It’s a big step for some people — that mud is pretty deep and it’s even seeped into the rubber boots you’re wearing, creating a vacuum that’s going to take some effort to break.

Remember, though, you’re not a victim of the mud or the rubber boots — honey, you stepped in there yourself.  Let go of the blame and the freak-out and just muster up the effort to step out — at least wiggle your foot, preparing for the step.  Keep wiggling until you can move your foot and step out onto the dry bank.  It’s not far.  Motivated effort gives you strength — victim struggling makes you weak.

Visualize stepping out.  Imagine what it would feel like to step out.  Think about what you would do if you weren’t suffering and stuck.  Start to bring those feelings and images close to you and move toward that future for yourself.

If someone near you is reinforcing your suffering, please stop listening to them and begin listening to the little voice inside that says, “Yes, you can step up and out of this mess!  Yes, you can!”

Yes, you can.  Clear horizons are out there and they can be for you.

When you have someone in your life who is one suffering the angels advise you to keep your light shining brightly.  The source of that light is God/Universal Source Energy/Love/Higher Self, so you don’t need to generate the energy to keep it burning.  But, it’s crucial to connect to the source through prayer and meditation — otherwise you can get drained and burned out.

Try to remain separate from that person’s drama and suffering mentality — and shower them and yourself with love.  Ask the angels to remove any cords and attachments with this person that causes a feeling of draining.  Of course, the connections of love never get severed, just those draining, enmeshed energy connections.

Remember the Truth that you are loved.  You’re never alone, even for a moment, in that muddy place — there’s always a helping hand stretched out to help give you balance and strength.

Blessings for a future that is just as you envision it to be!

Hi, everyone!  Sending waves of love and light out to you all.  I did healing and angel sessions last night at the Reiki circle at The Sanctuary, and as usual after that, my vibration is very high and I’m sharing that with you.  Thanks to everyone who signed up for a session with me — you are all magnificent souls.

Today the angels want to talk about worthiness.  Almost all of us have issues of some sort around worthiness.  Often it’s issues of feeling worthy of love — receiving love from God, ourselves and from other people.  There are important archetypes that come into play here as well — mother, father, child, friend, boss, employee.  How do we feel about giving and  receiving love from this group of people?  How do we feel about loving ourselves?

When I’m doing a healing session and this comes up — the angels telling us to love ourselves more fully — I begin to check in with Yuen on lots of different layers.

How is your energy to the word “love” itself?  The concept of love, the concept of not-love.  Is there a selfishness piece when you think of receiving love or not receiving love?  Do you feel like if you receive love you take it away from someone else?  Were there times that you did not love with a pure heart?  Or loved too much and were hurt?  Or hurt someone else?  There would be forgiveness issues and memories to correct for.  Remember that I check your energy around these questions — and our energy often doesn’t match our conscious beliefs . . .

Feeling love from God and the angels can bring up additional issues for people.  Although most of us would consciously say that we love God and we know that God loves us, in reality, our energy doesn’t always support that.  The angels show me an image of someone standing there, face-to-face with God, looking God in the eyes.  How does that image make you feel?  Could you stand in God’s presence and give love purely and receive love purely?

Most of us would like to think we could, but probably couldn’t.  (In fact as I write this I can feel the intimidation that is out there . . .)

Here’s where guilt and worthiness comes into play.  Many of us hold some guilt about “sins” and our pasts that keep us from being able to look God in the eyes and receive love.  Can we accept the idea that maybe God loves us unconditionally even if we feel some guilt?  That God wants to embrace us even if we aren’t proud of ourselves for each thing we’ve done and said?

Can we forgive ourselves like God has forgiven us?  Can we heal these things within ourselves and open our hearts so that we can love and receive love without something clogging the works?

The angels want to help you with letting these feelings go.  Letting the past go.  They can gather up all that icky, sticky stuff and rise up to the light of heaven with it where it can be transmuted into clear, loving energy that falls gently back to earth like a scattering of flower petals.

The primary relationship we must attend to is ours with our Creator — use whatever word or image you like best:  God, Higher Source, Higher Self, Universal Source Energy.  Nurture your ability to snuggle in close with God and all the rest of your earthly relationships will begin to ease up.  Fluidity in communication and the back-and-forth flow of love, acceptance and forgiveness will begin to appear.  You will be so filled with God love that earth love will be sweeter.

Don’t be worried about expressing anything “negative” or “impolite” to God.  The angels assure you (and I can attest to this myself) that in bringing your complaints to God, you open up the healing pathways.  By telling God that you blame God for something and that you’re mad about it gives God a chance to love you and tell you what is so.  That leads to faster healing and a closer relationship.  You won’t shock God.  God knows it all already!

It’s a simple idea — this nurturing your relationship with God, but it’s not easy.  There are lots of layers there to work through and encounter.  Certainly there are more facets to this than a little blog post can cover, but the point is to invite you to begin or continue on this path — and to encourage you that only good will come of it, even it there are painful spots along the way.

Your angels will take you by the hand through the dark patches and lead you onward toward the light.

You are worthy of being loved — that is your true nature.  What you were created to be.  Blessings today!

So . . . fear and mirrors.  I’m finding these showing up everywhere and with everyone these days.  Especially me.  And, I’m finding myself judging.  Yet another mirror!  It can get like a fun-house full of side-by-side mirrors, arranged at angles so that you can see yourself from all sides all at once.  It can be confusing and disorienting.  And frustrating!

It’s important to be aware and patient with ourselves.  Notice what is uncomfortable and be willing to delve into it, knowing that in a short time we can be rid of the discomfort.  So important to resist judging — ourselves and others.  Because, of course, what we see in others is actually that part of ourselves that is making itself known.

I can look outward and see someone who is fearful of the economy and of the future and think, “Trust that good things are coming to you.  Stay focused on what you want and don’t try to control the future.  Act with integrity and honor your truth.  Expect to be blessed and you’ll be surrounded by blessings.  Focus on sharing your highest striving with others and don’t worry about what is happening around you.”

The angels keep assuring me that everything is in perfect design, that everything is lining up perfectly, that there is nothing to worry about.  This truly is a time of shifting energies and vibrations.  Good things are coming, big openings are presenting themselves. 

The old is falling away.  Old patterns, thoughts, expectations and behaviors.  The falling away can be tough.  It can really test your resolve — do you *really* want the new?

Ooh, that’s a big ego trick — just as you’re strengthening yourself for the new, this little sliver of doubt speaks up.  Are you *sure*?  What if you’re *wrong*?  What if you give up everything and there’s nothing coming for you?

The fear!  So I approach that sort of fear with myself and with my clients by finding some of the root cause of it.  Is there something in the past that’s contributing to the fear of failure, poverty, illness, violence?  Did we once cause those things for someone else?  Are there memories, are there forgiveness opportunities?  I clear those things using the Yuen Method — it’s fast and powerful. 

Then the angels come into the conversation and spread their peace and love.  They tell us not to worry about anything.  To love ourselves and each other.  To see the magnificence within ourselves and each other.  To treat each other royally and nobly.  They say these times are like a whale flopping over onto its back in the ocean.  It’s a lot of motion — a big disturbance — an overturning.  But soon the leviathan will turn itself right again, invigorated by its tricks and go on frolicking in the sea. 

Of course, you don’t want to be riding on the whale’s back at that very moment — you want to be safe off to the side to watch the beauty.  This is a message of non-attachment.  Let go of needing to ride on the whale and do your own gliding and swimming.  Don’t be attached to what the markets, the economy, the corporations are doing — stay focused on who you are, what you want your life to be about and how to express that in its fullest in each moment.

But, please don’t judge yourself when you don’t.  Notice the mirrors around you, love them and make your adjustments.  Love and forgive.

Hi!  This is Laura and I’m excited to be starting my blog and website.  I’m going to share my thoughts and experiences as a lightworker — doing energy healing work, using the Yuen Method; being an Angel Therapy Practitioner®; receiving insights during meditation; trying to live my best life, and encouraging and helping others to live their best lives.  I’ll also share a bit about my own spiritual path — those things that I’m currently working on.

I imagine this place to be wise at times, silly at times — but *always* a striving toward truth and love.

Remember that your angels are *always* with you — each moment of each hour of each day.  You are *never* alone and are *always* loved, *never* judged.  Your angels are available and eager to guide you in your life — the big and the little stuff.  Your truest nature is love — pure, radiant love — that’s who you are and that’s who the angels see when they look at you.

Blessings today!  Love from above.  -Laura
