Meditation Tips

This week I will be sharing some of the benefits and tips of meditation.
Meditation is a quieting of the mind. You allow thoughts to come and go allowing yourself to become still and reconnect with your spirit.
What if I you cannot quiet your mind, should you give up? Absolutely not! This means you should meditate even more so! 
The first tip I would like to share is this ~ a quiet environment is so important if you are trying to meditate.
If there is a lot of noise traffic then select another space.
Is it okay to meditate outside? Absolutely, as long as you are able to allow thoughts to come and go.
Here are a few suggestions to help you quiet your mind:

  • Create a space that is quiet and clear of clutter
  • Sage or light incense to clear the air
  • Light a candle to bring in spirit
  • Turn off all cell phones and electronics such as the television
  • Play some relaxing music ~ this is not a requirement but it does help set the mood
  • Say a prayer of intention to connect with your higher self, angel or guide 
  • With your intention or prayer ask a question that is pressing to you. Ask for clarity, guidance and truth
  • Hold a crystal ~ one that you connect with and that will open you to your higher guidance
  • Have a journal and pen near by
  • Breathe ~ if you are stuck with your thoughts, breathe in light and exhale stress
  • Counting your breath helps you relax
  • Realize some days it is easier to meditate than others
  • If you cannot keep still then go outside and listen to nature as well as the thoughts that run through your mind
  • Listen to a guided meditation this will most certainly give your busy mind a job to do
  • If you meditate in the same spot you will create a vortex  of energy therefore; each time you will be able to connect easier each time. This will create a conditioning
When you meditate or quiet the mind creating a listening to the whispers of your soul you raise your vibration. Raising your vibration puts you in alignment with more blessings, opportunities, better health, less stress, strong intuition, more abundance, happier and healthier relationships.

There aren't any negative benefits from meditating! Your friends and family will thank you as you become happier and healthier and more patient with them!

Blessings,
Laurie

Prayers of Healing and Hope For The Midwest

I have written before about tragedy and what we can do as a collective consciousness. It
is time to come together again as a collective for the people affected by the destructive storms here in the US.

Let's send prayers of healing, comfort and hope to those who are suffering. 
As you read this please take a moment to send those healing prayers and thoughts to the people, the land, the animals. 

See a golden, white light with swirling greens and pinks surrounding the areas of the midwest which have been affected. Ask the angels and the light to bring in comfort and love to the suffering. May there be strength for those who are helping with the rescues to be strong and may they receive healing as well.

After this continued prayer for as long as needed remember to count your blessings. Remember to hug and appreciate those you love, tell them you love and cherish them. Be grateful for your blessings...we never know when or it they are going to change.

Blessings,
Laurie

To Use Metaphysical Tools Or Not ~ That Is The Question

I have gone back and forth with the question do these candles work? What about the crystals? Does sage really clear the energy? This may raise a few eyebrows since I do own a metaphysical shop where these items are sold. 
I have had dialogue with a few people and here is the responses I have received:
  • You do not need tools. You can go straight to source. These are just things.
  • All of these tools crystals, herbs etc. have been put here on earth so they have value and purpose.
After going within for the answer I was guided by my guide who shared this with me.
"Does it really matter what one thinks or believes? What matters most is what you know to work in your heart. Yes, the crystals all have vibration and healing powers as well as consciousness as do the herbs. Medicine has been created through these herbs and crystals are put into acupuncture needles to help intensity the healing. Scientifically this has been proven. What you want is an absolute answer. You will not get one answer. There are many personal truths. Asking a question like this is like asking what is the best color in the spectrum? There are different personal preferences. What you also may take into consideration is this ~ what does each crystal mean for you? The descriptions and healing properties do vary. One citrine may not work for abundance by itself for one person.They may also need another stone such as an apache tear first to help them move through their emotional wounding. The answer you are looking for is within you. Find people to talk to about these subjects who are like-minded and open to contemplation. This will be like a stepping stone to help you raise your consciousness, which is the ultimate goal for your time here on earth. These tools are comprised of the elements of the earth: earth, water, air, fire and spirit. YOU are comprised of earth, water, air, fire and spirit. Why would these elemental healing tools not have an effect on you unless you cancelled them out by negating their frequency. Use your candles to light the way, use your water to cleanse your auric field, use your herbs to heal your skin and organs. Use crystals to heal your broken heart. Use the incense to stimulate the sense of smell to shift your emotions. When smelling roses does this not open your heart? I have given you plenty to think upon. Do your own research if you must. First go within and honor your own personal truth. Be open to what others may have to say then weigh this with your heart. You then may decide if this rings true for you." 
And there you have it ~ I will use my crystals, candles, sage and herbs because I feel and know they work for me :) I welcome comments and suggestions to this subject.
I thank Kathy S. for continuing this conversation it has opened me up to more understanding about personal truths.
As a side note, my spirit guide has been nudging me to bring her through more with my writing and channelling. Ray Sette has met her through a personal session I had with him last week. This was my own personal validation it is time to allow her to come through for others as well. She has much more to share as more knowledge is wanting to come through.
Her name is Althea and she says her presence can be felt by all who work with me as well as read my channellings. I also welcome feedback as to how she comes through for others. I know what and how she comes through for me. I am intrigued as how she reveals herself to others.

Blessings and Light,
Laurie

Just Say No To Competition



Beginning this Wednesday, May 8th I will be available for private sessions in Naples at my
friend Pam Bzoch's new healing center Saith Seren. I will be available for these sessions every 2nd and 4th Wednesday.
After making this announcement a few clients have inquired as to why I would read at another center.
They have even asked "Aren't you afraid of losing customers?" My answer is absolutely no. I am so happy for my friend who is pursuing her heart's desire. It has been a dream of hers for a long time to have her own healing center. I support her 100%. 
There is so much competition in the world, this has been a part of human nature for a long time. 
As I see it, competition can be a motivating factor of what is possible for your business as you observe similar businesses succeeding. Allowing other's successes to fuel or inspire you is a healthy motivator as long as you do not try to take another business down. 
Your own business and goals deserve your attention and focus. By worrying about everyone else you are taking away precious energy which could be used more wisely.
You can also use this comparison to help you become more inspired to put your own personal touch or flair into your business, do something no one else is doing. Others may imitate you. Absolutely this is a possibility , does this really matter? No, it really doesn't. 
Allow me to explain my reasoning. If I trust in my own manifestation power and have faith in my own destiny, then I know that the Universe is limitless. I tap into my own resources, my own source of consciousness. I know I am responsible for my own successes and or failures. No one is going to take clients or business away that was meant to go elsewhere. There are always new people calling up for directions or being referred to my business. I trust that some souls may need another perspective and that my work with them on a professional level may be complete. They may visit me down the road but I let go of my attachment to where the clients go for their own healing.
I am more than happy to assist people with business ideas and to network with like-minded people. There are many people out there to help and am I able to help everyone? Absolutely not, I am one person. This is why I have other healers, counselors, psychics and mediums here at my business 

So...for all of my Naples, Bonita Springs, Marco Island and Golden Gate clients - I am available for private sessions at my dear friend's new beautiful center, Saith Seren.
The address is 4910 Tamiami Trail Ste 212 and the phone number is 239 262-7007.
I am looking forward to seeing old familiar faces as well as new ones too :)

Blessings and Light,
Laurie

This Week's Advice ~ Keep Calm and Keep The Faith

I wasn't sure what to write about this week. In fact, I thought well...maybe I am not supposed to write about anything, and then the voices that are always speaking in my head spoke up. They said "Talk a little bit about patience and faith. Tell them not to give up. Life isn't about instant gratification about getting our way instantly. We are short term patience people here. We are forgetting about the process we go through as we wait and overcome our fears and worries. If we have not manifested or achieved our goals where is the growth? Why are you here? How can you bond and unite as people if you do not help others with struggles. Just because you do not have everything right now it does not mean that it will not happen. Send out your prayers and then let them go. See them as balloons that are set off into the air to go where they need to. Let your attachment to the outcome be released like the balloon and carry on. We, will take care of the rest. Be ready though. Be ready for what comes up because there are reasons and patterns and thinking that are blocking your desires. Be ready to go through the muck of your minds and emotions. But...be ready for the blessings, be ready for the love, the self-love, be ready for happiness and self-empowerment. Be ready for spiritual enlightenment. Your life will change, but it will change for the better."
And so as I let go of my "What do I write about?" it all came to me. 

Have a great week everyone!
Blessings and Light,
Laurie
