she’s one of the most famous or well known psychic mediums in the world. Please open your ears. Open your minds and help me welcome in these fabulous Laura powers well welcome to the my dog TV progress. Thanks for. What a lovely introduction! HAPPY TO BE HERE! Your bio reads like wow Back in the day when I used to interview people they they one thing they weren’t actor. They were director. They were psychic on very rarely with somebody so many things, and but now it seems like everybody is becoming more diversified so why what led you to become? Such a universal woman. Well I. think that’s part of this shift. That’s happening now is just that we’re opening up to all our diversity, and ourselves and diversity in the world is a whole that ever since I was little. I’ve always been into a lot of different things I started acting as a child modeling child always loved writing, and you know he would ask me about being a sake. I you know as a kid I wouldn’t have. I wouldn’t have thought of it as a profession, but even as a child, I did palm reading. Funny so I was featured in the newspaper when I was twelve or thirteen doing palm readings just funny to me now because I came across that article recently, but yeah I’ve always been interested in a lot of things and I think the truth is that most people are actually really creative. They’re a study that was done. That showed that people. Ijaz, around five about ninety eight percent were considered extremely creative, and then by the time you’re thirty, only two percents. Are considered, so it’s something that it’s taught out of us, and so I think we all have that capability, but our society really kind of priced at teach you to niche down, and just really focus on one thing, and some people do well that way when I operate that way I start to feel really limited, and I feel it actually like stifles everything that I do move mark that down. I WanNa talk about the link between creativity and what you do now, and because we have so many creators in our audience, I wanNA talk about that, but the thing that fascinated me most fascinated by made me curious the most. In, your bio was the. Advanced Degree in political science, which is to me. When you talk about psychics and politics it’s like bananas and pickles they. I like them both, but they just don’t go together so, what makes a little girl who talks to ghost grow up to be interested in politics. I think that’s a pretty complex I. mean there’s there’s a couple of things there is the family that you’re born into and the culture of that, so my family is very interested in politics and Heston. You’re engaged in that realm for many generations, and then you have to also look at it on a soul level so in past lives that was very involved in politics. Politics though they in leading on specifically in the United States. I have some past lives. Dot are early on in the United States in politics, so it’s a world that was very familiar to me. and I. When I told this. Restore it, ’cause it’ll give you a sense like this is not a normal reaction, so I was born in the united excuse me has. moved to the United States when I was a girl, and I remember being in get was. Neither kindergarten first grade and I learned that I couldn’t be president because I was born outside of the United States and I was so upset like that’s not a normal reaction you. was there ever since I was really little? Wow, I was very active in politics at a very young age, too, and my parents were not necessarily, but my next door neighbors were, and I was best friends with with with the kid next door, and so his father was involved in politics. I got I was a coffee boy for a for what was then the Republican Party. Not the same Republican Party now. Now, but I will at at five or six years old, so I can relate to that a little bit so You mentioned past lives and I don’t think I’m quite ready to go there, but I that’s something I’m very very interested in you, you do so many things in so I’d like to start with with the with the first book that you came out with which was really just about. Talking to spirits communicating with spirits. It was it was about yeah. Being medium was also about my journey was part memoir about me opening up to these abilities because again. How do you go from working in government and politics to? Thank you like when I went through that journey and I’ve run into people who I never I never talked about this before I was doing it for work so. They knew me from working at the President’s Office University of a State University. And then you know being a delegate and all these things, and so it’s about. How did I transition for? Why did I do that as well? So so the debt call because he came from a politically active family, did that cause some kind of when you started becoming more active in the psychic weather that caused some kind of reaction from from your family and friends.
00:10:14 – 00:15:01
Definitely. I think how could you not react in some way, right? Pro I think when I came out of the Second Claus at enough what I call it ’cause. It was basically like keeping everything. A secret always had these abilities and his experiences on that I suddenly Kinda came out with and just let me know what had been going on and I expected. I think a lot of. Criticism and you know being ostracized, and that sort of thing. I didn’t experience that I experienced more than anything that most people were quite curious. They just were wanting to know more and understand what it was like you know. My story I did have a little bit of tension with my mother in particular because I was on social media talking about the stuff and she was to. The family and some of the stuff I talk about is pretty out there. I think you would concerned about it, but we have had a discounted discussion. I said look you know I’m GonNa Post. About this you can, you can be basic friend or not. That’s totally up to you. But that’s what I. This is my living. This is important to me and you have to accept it or just not be there with me. So you say always had this ability. My wife talks about my step daughter when she was two or three years old, sitting in a high chair and talking to people that weren’t there and that kind of stuff, but she said by the time it will. She was ready for kindergarten that stuff stop. Is that stuff kind of stuff that you experienced because my wife swears that she was seeing spirits or or something of that nature. Is that what you experienced as Intel. I mean it’s very different for different people, but as a general rule, just like creativity talked about creative people are very open and creative and. Doing all these things when they’re young. When children are young, they tend to be more connected with the other side, and and the unseen realm, and that varies for different people. Some people see from people are impasse. They feel for me I’m very clairvoyant, which needs seeing so I saw a lot of stuff that other people didn’t see so I actually grew up. Thinking I must be crazy because other people aren’t seeing what and they’re not reacting to things that I’ve seen so I remember asking my mom when I think I was maybe seven years old if she thought things a new based on a response that she just didn’t know what I was. was talking about so from that point onwards. I just kept to myself and did the best I could to try to for the things that were going on, but in my case, this indicates we’re going to go to Mike. Case as I got into adolescence and early adulthood, it actually got stronger and stronger and I. Think part of that is because part of my life, path and purpose. This is not something that I never meant to ignore, and so I, really got to point where I had to face it, and had to figure out what to do with it, because it just kept amping up like I wasn’t able to just kind of quietly. Model along with my life without addressing, it somehow understood so flip for those of us who aren’t clairvoyant. Or Not tuned into our on Clinton clairvoyance. Some people have told me that everybody has the ability, but just don’t tune into it. and but for those of us who don’t see the I’ve heard the words, ghosts and spirits used, and for people, just a general lay person. We think about the idea of a ghost. We think about an apparition that has a physical human form. and. The idea of a spirit. We’re not sure about that. Sure. What the difference between spirit and ghost is, so can we start? Their spirit goes interchangeable I the same thing. They are not although they. They have a similarity I would say that. A ghost is a spirit that a ghost is a particular type of spirit. Ghost is a spirit who is still in the early Rome. Their body has died, but they have not transitioned onto where souls usually go with just to the other side. You Know Heaven whatever you WanNa call it, and so they’re rather limited in terms of their perception because they have they don’t. Dislike having only their knowledge from this lifetime, but not having their body here. So, do they? Do they keep the same physical appearance of their most previous life because I know you mentioned past life before so i WanNa WanNa. Go there, so if you saw a guess, the ghost is the one I’m talking about where it keeps physical appearance, right? Yeah in my experience, that is the case they’re gonNA stay in that form that was their most recent forum, and in some cases they may actually look as they did when they died. So I’ve had some pretty extreme. Experiences, that before I got training were a little frightening where you would see for example someone who had an intense, devin. They look how they when they died. You know it’s kind of gory intense, and that used to frighten me when I was young, but then as I got older and I got the training. I learned to understand that they’re.
00:15:01 – 00:20:03
They’re not trying to harm you there just in a bad spot. You know like someone who’s literally have an accident. You know. Yeah, it’s kind of scary to look at. It’s intense, but it’s more that they’re you know someone being bad is in a tough spot and could use some help, so yeah, I think when you don’t have training a lot of these things can feel very intense and scary, and the more training I guess I get I, don’t I don’t feel fear anymore. From these things interesting, so, but when you as a as a visual person clairvoyant when you see a spirit is what is there a difference between? That’s where I’m going. You know a ghost. We’ll take human form seeing spirits. Is that a different experience you? Ashore a spirit that’s in the light that can. A lot of different ways I see them most commonly clervoy, because with with ghosts that are not in the light. I sometimes would see them in the physical realm. They look very solid to me whereas spirit in a light that’s very different. They have a completely different energy, and the other differences that they are not necessarily trapped in that same forum for when they died from their last lifetime, so I’ve been communicating with you know someone’s. Someone’s grandmother and they look like they’re twenty. Because you once you’re on the other side, you can choose however you WANNA look and they may choose to look how they did. When they passed so that they can be familiar to their loved ones and they’d be like. Hey, I want to look like I’m twenty, or maybe they’re an animal in you know. They were a dog in this life, but now they look like a lion. Because they like to do so in terms of you know, it’s very different with their spirit in the light versus an earthbound spirit or ghost, as we tend to call them. Do some of this stuff. Make my mind spin so. Can you turn the stuff off, or is it always on? I would say that I turn it up and down I would never choose to turn it off because I want to know what’s going on I mean just because something is intense. I would never want to just put blinders on, or you know line myself and I did do that for a period of time by the way I can I know this. Process Pretty deeply trying to block it out, and then just ignoring everything, but we do best when we know what’s happening, but I still have to live my life. I’m not get bogged down by some of this stuff, so I’m not working I. would say turn it down, but I said that intentional angels and spirit guide that if there’s something really important for me to see or know. Know that they make sure that I i. see that and then when I do my work on basically really tuning out physical realm, and just focusing on that I basically turn, turn the dial up really really high that I’m getting all the impressions from this spiritual realm. It would seem to me that it could. It could be a burden. It’s a some points in your life you. Just want to be left alone. You know I just need some peace. Because I’m as I mentioned. In the opening I’m feeling burnt out I, know I know out, happens and so I would think having because it’s hard enough just dealing with people in the physical realm sometimes when they can burn out so this kind of I don’t know if you call it a gift, but I I get could sometimes feel like a burden no. Oh absolutely I think with psychics. You have to learn how to have very strong boundaries, and by that I mean also with the energetic Rome, as well as with live people. Because if you don’t, you will absolutely get burned out, and there’s you many many stories in history of different psychics who did that? WHO JUST GOT BURNT OUT? And then you get sick and you die or you? Just you know struggle so. So for me, I make really clear delineations like this is my work. I don’t do free readings, and even with ghosts or spirits like no, it’s not the time when I go to sleep. I need to be able to sleep and again I set the intention with my Angel Spirit Guide. You know that they’re only bother me if it’s something really important if it’s time for me to go to bed for example. Yeah you have to have the boundaries because you know we all were still here physical, so we’ll have the people in our lives that are still maybe wanting to conduct to get something, and then we have this whole other dimension and realm that we have to deal with as well right so. The idea of psychic healing and and I’m I’m only going here because of the political science. connection here a little bit. With with everything that’s going on in the world. Is it possible to take the kind of work? You do in in individual healing and apply that to society because I think society is very sick right now. Get your take on that. Oh absolutely I mean I think it’s the micro and the macro. They’re completely connected, and yes, our society is very sick, and we all individually as they could mean. One of the reasons that I think Kobe. Nineteen is so serious is. That we have. We’re very sick. Society like the Bar of health that we have as being quote. Unquote healthy is really poor. So there’s that and there’s also some deeper societal elements in terms of you know the societal issues that are allowing this to come to the surface, and how we treat and handle the world’s.
00:20:03 – 00:25:14
There’s a lot of patterns that were in terms of disregard for the environments for each other. That are really coming up for reassessment in clearing right now. So. I think there’s a a large degree of. Mental, I, WANNA call mental health issues because I don’t believe in mental health I believe in mental illness. I don’t believe anybody’s really totally mentally healthy so I i. always say that I believe in mental illness. I think we all have it to some degree, and if you have if you only have forty nine percent of it, you’re the person who looks like a perfect mental health. Health, but a data side I think we’re all suffering from some degree, and I think part of the anxiety. I was talking about in in the beginning of the show. is part of that. We’re all feeling kind of anxious wanting this distinct. Go Away looking for some but is that an energetic thing or mental thing or are they linked? Are they boat one in the same? Guys. I think it’s complex and I think there’s many aspects to this. Oh I. started my podcast. Healing Powers Podcast, and it’s a mind body sphere podcast, and I started to focus on all these things and how they’re connected, because there’s whatever’s going on with US spiritually you know the issues that we have with ourselves with others. The lessons that we’re learning. There’s our mental processes. There’s our physical health, but they’re incredibly interconnected so for example. If you’re experiencing a lot of stress, depression anxiety right now, then I would encourage you to ask your angels for help. Work on it from his. His spirit level I would also encourage you to look out every physical level. Like what are you doing that might be contributing to anxiety. There’s a huge dietary component to anxiety and depression with most people don’t understand at all. Are you drinking alcohol? Are you eating sugar? I mean there are certain foods and substances that if you consume them, you will experience what most people would consider the symptoms of anxiety, depression and then there’s a biological physiological components. Some illnesses, a lot of mental illness is actually due to microbes into brain in different parts of the body, so it’s incredibly complex. Isolate all these things into just one thing, but when you’re suffering from one of these things I feel like it’s great to approach the from all angles, always definitely calling your angels and spirit guides, effort, healing, help, and then yeah, start to explore you know. What is it that I’ve being? Do on a deeper level. And then. What is it in my life? That might be. Either contributed to things I. Don’t want or blocking. What it is that I want I know that. You know it is a very complex issue. It’s sight. Of Mental Health comes up on just about every podcast, especially with comedian for some reason I up, comedian seemed to be obsessed with this idea of mental health and and I don’t know why that is, but I you know I think it has something to do with with the with the lifestyle, because the lifestyle absolutely is it’s not conducive to being healthy and a lot of ways you. You don’t sleep like normal people sleep normal hours you. Your Diet is definitely a usually on the Ron and things like that when you’re living in an entertainer. In particular so this idea of healing. is that the same secure? Wait, this is complex, and before I get into that I just to say yeah, it’s so interesting with comedians always connecting with Comedians by meet them. You know I don’t know if you saw. But I was GonNa Welfare broadcast like I’m always just things that coming out. They have to do with comedy and I think a lot of people that are comedians on a deeper level. They’re trying to be healers. They’re trying to help people with laughter and anytime you’re a healer than you end up, not only dealing with your own stuff, but everyone else’s stuff at your circle, and if you don’t have strong boundaries, it’s going to be really intense for you without Rodman you want to. Say. You want to know about healing at a cure. Well because. I know a lot of people think when they hear healing. They think it’s going to cure whatever they have and I am and having worked in a what was a four year. Healing hands on Healing University. Having done having had that experience in my and my background, I know that a lot of people came to so called healers. Looking for a cure and expecting cure, and that wasn’t necessarily. What are what happened in many cases so I? Just that confusion between the idea of a healer and I’m going to get cured I. Think is a is, it’s a common thing the. I agree and I think as a whole we do need to be careful with the idea of a core period, because the truth is, there’s at least a part of us that has to be involved in that quote, Unquote Cure, and if that’s not alive with us, then that won’t happen, and you’ll see this with if someone, for example spiritually their time to go no matter what cure they’re given, they will go.
00:25:14 – 00:30:08
It’s time so I think healing as a whole, the word is a more encompassing word and it helps with. More from the holistic perspective of the different areas that are important, and it is a journey and a process like I. Feel like I’ve been on a healing journey for twelve years. You know I was started out where I was physically sick. You know depressed on sleep medication I would fifty pounds heavier than I am now you know just. I was just a mess. You know and it’s not like. I got from there to here. Instantly it’s been a twelve year journey and I’m still healing elements so I think we need to change our approach in the idea that it’s like. Oh, you just take this pill and then Bam you’re you’re? Cured It’s a journey and I also feel like we were see whichever level of healing that we’re ready for, and if we’re not ready for it than we won’t receive a yet, and it’s usually because there’s some kind of lesson or something associated with that. Lesson. The Universe is in with intent giving lessons to individuals providing Roy yeah. I do I mean it. Just everything is so perfect bowl. Now sometimes. We may be ready per shift and we have a hard time. Connecting with the resources to make it happen on a physical level, and sometimes that can be frustrating where it feels like things are going more slowly than we want to. But even then we just have to be patient and keep listening to our guidance and being open to different places like a lot of times. People like I wanna fix this or WanNa bring the in, and the Universe is sending them all these messages and they’re like. No, no, no, no! And then they get frustrated. ’cause they’re like. I’m stocker. Can’t you know moving forward? And that’s just one example You know it’s a complex situation, but we are a part of the journey, and and we need to be open to different things that are coming to was like for me. I, got you know unemployed and my whole profession? Just kind of went away for while during the recession and I was frustrated and guided to start working as a psychic, and basically for year was like no. And at the same time I was already working with angels spirits. Please send me money pleased new job you know and. They’re like yes, here it is for you. You’ll be a psychic and I. For, a year, and the whole time I was frustrated and struggling, and then, as soon as I was finally like gave in, and said okay, everything opened up for me. Abundance things happen fast like the first time supposed to do readings at a local copy shop in the managing editor of the local. Local newspaper reached out and ask if you write a story about me. And then two days later, I was in the regional newspaper with a color photo and fan. My phone started. Like making money quickly. These kinds of winning, but a lot of times we are stubborn and I. Get it like I said I’ve done it before or not. Listening to how it is at that, we are being guided to make those changes. While you gave me a lot to respond to their. I I I would say because you kind of touched on it about things happening fast for you when I I was very involved in in interviewing a lot of psychics thirty five years ago and then probably around. Twenty eight years ago I stopped and I. Really didn’t have much. Much interest in the field until I started this podcast again but what strikes me is is that you mentioned twelve years and I think that’s A. Form from what I know from years ago. That’s that’s a big change in the way things used to be and when I was more active in thirty five years ago, people would spend forty years in the career to to accomplish what you have in twelve years or get to the place where you have and so I think that’s part of one one way. The whole field of psychic medium ship has changed I mean I see it now in a lot of people, not just you where things happen really fast and escalate beyond control is there is that you think that’s universe, the universe at work, or or is there some other catalysts and reason for that? No. It’s, it’s complex that I think it’s the world opening up to these things I think also. Like changes happening at an ever-increasing pace, I mean literally from a quantum physics perspective, the universe is expanding at a faster and faster rate than ever before, and that includes the second realm and part of that change. I think is to open up to this realm and energy in these things that we have been closer. We’re going on this very structured kind of mail system structure to very much more open, more feminine, more, intuitive, more, creative, less, structured system, and so people that are in those fields.
00:30:08 – 00:35:06
If they’re paying their guidance there, this is this new way is supported in the world versus your in the old system. You might be struggling right now. I was GONNA save went back in the thirty five years ago. When I was more active in this, it was a very male, dominated field, and now it’s completely female-dominated, I don I don’t know any male psychics but I know a hundred females aches. Is there. Is there a correlation but I? mean the guys just stopped being interested in it why? I don’t understand why why? Why that is I, just think that we’ve just were in a more male oriented society, and were more accustomed to looking at men in leadership, positions or guidance positions whether that’s. A Pope or president or a king, or whatever it was just. That was kind of more comfortable, more normal, oppressing our shifting to. More for women to be and some of those same types of physicians or role so I think it’s really just about that overall shift I. Do know many Psychic Man I know more psychic women are people that take on that Monica for themselves, and I think a lot of it is now It’s more comfortable and accepted for women to kind of honor that and I think it’s becoming more comfortable for men, but it’s still a little bit hard for unless you have like really abilities, and you just can’t ignore it. It’s a little bit harder to step in like I have some clients that are pretty high up and business like their CEO’s and executives vary some very wealthy, very successful individuals, but they’re not necessarily talking about this publicly. We’re together, but it’s more like okay I got. I want. Wanted to follow I I had a question. I wanted to ask you, but then when you said that do they make you sign a NDA like don’t talk. Don’t tell people I’m seeing a psychic. It mostly, not that level of the celebrities that been me signed A. It’s more just like. How are they? GonNa be forward with this. Other. They’re going to talk about it. Women are more likely to be comfortable, but not all. They’re still someone that our way is there still a stigma attached to somebody in the chat room? Sandy says she seen the psychic several times and have not told family friend because she doesn’t want to be judged or criticized. Is there still a stigma attached with seeing a psyche. I think there can be, but it’s getting less and less overall, and you know as a psychic I. It’s funny I hear people say things to me all the time like I’ve never told anyone, but and then they tell me this like crazy experience, and so most people have that idea that they’re going to be afraid of the judgment, but it’s often case just the opposite like people are curious. They want to talk about it like there was a poll and. Eighty percent of people believe in angels, but if you ask people, they’re not gonNA talk about it. They just kind are like yeah, but if someone personally privately, they’ll acknowledge it. I find that a shocking number. Eighty percent of people believe in angels. ’cause I know a lot of religious people who’ve pink. The idea of angel else’s is. Not, not a healthy. You know there’s a whole lot of debate about then when you get into religion, people get come up with some plenty ideas about what’s evil, and what’s not evil and what’s bad. And it’s it. It can be so much that makes your head spin. You talked about clairvoyance. You also Claire. Claire Audience and and the other senses. So yes, my strongest abilities are clairvoyance, and then I’m an path and very very intense path times so these these. kind of up out there. Pretty Tests I am a clear audience. It’s definitely not as strong for me as those other two abilities, I’m fairly telepathic as well so sometimes i. just get like the thoughts. Information comes to my mind, but I would definitely say that the. And the audience actively on the empathy are the strongest why I think. Telepathy is one that. Most, people would want you talk today, average person or they’re there a two things and going back going back again thirty five years ago, wet will really popular during that period. When had the mind? All radio show back in the old days is that telepathy was a big thing that fat people were fascinated with an a gift that most people would want to have and the other one is pre cognition. Do you ever have free cognition because that seems to be lost? Always psychics I talking now. A bet rarely comes up the idea of pre cognition. Does that ever happen to you? And does and I regularly use the ability sense things in the future for my clients, but. I don’t always know the whole picture, so don’t share with me what they’ll share with me saw give an example.
00:35:06 – 00:40:01
And this is a client who has shared this story so I can share. It’s a but the client and. She was they were moving to Hawaii in They were currently based in Los Angeles, but they had cleaned the bought. Your Bank went to buy this property, but they’re going to wait for a while to go out there. And her husband worked in the entertainment industry for one of the major studios, so this was last year. It was like. Whatever that was. November October November and I said what looks like your, you know your husband’s going to be able to work from home starting around for March and she told her husband he’s like that’s crazy. There’s no way I could work from home I work for like the studio. And he worked on the show like you know in the studio. And then and then they were contemplate like maybe in two years moved to why and I said what feels like next summer this again last fall you’ll be. You’ll be moving, or you can move if you want to. And she’s again. It’s like how there’s no way that we would be able to do that. Will Long Story Short Kobe happen? He like working from home, and they decided to expedite their timeline moved to Hawaii right away. Over the summer like basically right after they were able to, so I didn’t. They didn’t tell me like Oh. There’s GonNa. Be a pandemic, and they just tell me like the details that are related to whatever it is that I’m looking at right I think that was common when I when I had a lot because. A lot of the guys who used to be on the radio show. We’re big on this idea of pre cognition and making. Predictions about the future for not for individuals, but not necessarily, but for the bigger picture for the world for the country in that kind of stuff, and they often were pretty pretty good and Iowa accurate I mean when I say pretty good as a testable in in reverse. So when something happens, you can say oh yeah, that’s right. You made this prediction. Six months ago. We wrote it down. We had it recorded, and then we had a large amount of success with that somebody in in the chat room. Just said Telekinesis is where it’s at the US you’ll have that gift. You know I’ve never been able to relate consciously. Tap into that I. Do have some pretty intense things that happened with electricity where. You know pick things up I. would light bulbs. With my hands. You know some pretty wild affair, but telekinesis and something that I have not mastered yet. I have had an experience with talked about this on on the program before and I don’t know what. The connection was my when my aunt, I had an aunt, who was a part of he was, she was the last one killed in a string of serial murders in Los Angeles that was freeway. Murders back in I. Think it was eighty nine ninety something like that and I don’t know what the connection was, but it was the weekend I had found out that she had She had been murdered and that night I was sitting home. Home with a book on Telekinesis and and reading about it and I was fascinated with the idea of it when into my kitchen, and there was a glass on the counter, and all the windows are closed. All the doors closed and I stood for forty five minutes, practicing with this book told me about how to move that glass with my mind. And I was intent, and I got myself into an Alpha state and I was really expecting things to happen, and finally after forty five minutes I gave up a close book I went in. I sat down on the couch. Like make a big jerk, emotion or anything. Nothing rattled in the house, but as I sat down, I heard the glass crash on the floor, and I went into the kitchen, and there was no windows open, no win no reason for that thing to pop off the shelf and onto the floor and break, and it just blew my mind and I stood there shaking for and I don’t I. Don’t know how it connected to the story with my, but I felt like. I think it was your aunt. That did it well. That’s that’s been kind of in my back back of my mind. That was at least some hope that while Mrs are trying to kind of let me know that you know she still around somewhere, but it was just a you know. It’s still the hair on the back of my neck. Kinda stands up when I tell the story because I was. I was something I was doubtful. Kind of hopefully trying to do something. And then the the result after I stopped trying I just sat down, and took a deep breath and boom in and it happened, and it was like Oh very freaky and scary. I I will say that I think with psychic abilities. That often is that way that if we try too hard, it doesn’t work and like with clairvoyance. Did you ever see those? Three, d. kind of pictures. They were really popular like when I was in high school. Where if you? Do you image pop out, and if you focus really hard, you couldn’t see you had to kind of Blur. Your eyes out and just kind of let it pop out and I feel like a lot of times.
00:40:01 – 00:45:01
That’s what clairvoyance when you’re when you’re doing it. What limousine just see things if they’re very clever, way opposite, but when I was learning the training for that’s what I had to do I if I try to focus, couldn’t see it. I had to just kind of let it. Go Bella and come in. I remember those very well and that that was definitely the experience you had to really almost get yourself into an Alpha state to actually allow you to kind of focus, and then it would just pop out, and then you couldn’t unsee it once. But. Have you ever? Ever really been frightened by by your experiences like. Because at experience kind of frightened me in a way. That’s why I’m bringing that up. That’d be ever been like spooked and to the point where while maybe a maybe I shouldn’t be going down this road. I should say when I was a child and adolescent and young adult. I was frightened all time. So, yeah, it was. This was not something I thought of as a gift at that time I would like get this Outta me like this is horrible. Because most of what I experienced was dark, and they now jake. If people is our minds, a wires. And enter a garden if you don’t plant flowers, which shows up, are the weeds, and so just basically had a lot of weeds. Energetically, speaking speaking in my life, and I didn’t know to to change it or how to change it, and then as I got older and embrace my abilities. Taking classes learn about angels. I learned like Oh. I can set the parameters for what I want in my field, and that was a game changer because I didn’t know how to have boundaries when I was young I could be what’s called a trance medium, allowing spirits to come in and communicate through my body. I WANNA do that. I choose not to do that right now. A but because I didn’t know how to set that boundary or have that intention spirits would try. Try so growing up. You know adolescence and onwards I. Literally had goes in spirits, trying to take over my body to use my body for whatever, and not for like positive helpful purposes, but I’d like this one goes to was an alcoholic when he was alive, and he wanted to drink, and he wanted a body to do it, and he was gonNA give a lot of efforts to try to do it through me, and it was always a battle. You know so yeah, it was. It was definitely intense, but now that I have my training now that I know how to how these boundaries I. Don’t have anything like that ever. Everything, you know much easier. I still have to work to clear my energy fields I. Don’t get bogged down with especially love and ten energy that for now, but nothing. That is frightening. Have you ever been asked to. Help police within investigation or anything like that. You know it’s so interesting. I was just talking with another friend. Incline about that I have not worked with law enforcement. I haven’t hired by families in criminal cases. It’s the opportunity presented itself. I’m open to that I frequently with from watching the news or something. We’ll get information about a case. It just haven’t had as sort of avenue to use that information. I have a case that I am I. Don’t WanNa say obsessed with I’m angry about that hasn’t been solved, and it should be solved and the serial murder case here on long. Island took very feminine of Gilgo Squad. Gilgal murder. ten girls were murdered at least ten girl, too, and that we know about were murdered and dumped along. Parkway here on Long Island New York and One of the suspects, was the chief of police for the for the county I live in, but yeah he went to jail for beating up a guy who found all a a bunch of pornography and sex toys and stuff in in chunk of his car, he beat him up and also in his little black book, he the names and numbers of a lot of victims, and then the police department covered it up, so it’s been an open investigation for ten years. No progress has been made the police. Department obstructed the FBI investigation and I feel like. I! Don’t know why I’m just so adamant about that. The family needs to know who really did this and because is that there’s this element of corruption. I’m always fascinated to try you know and. Get to the bottom of it and it seemed like it. It’s never going to happen. Nobody talk to me about it. Who’s WHO’s GonNa? Law Enforcement or DA’s office will talk to me about it. The new author soup written books about it will talk to me about so very frustrating so i. that’s the reason I asked. Because I know there are other cases like that out there that could use some help. And that kind of stuff and I just wondered if anybody ever reach out to you about that kind of stuff. Like I said I’m open to it, I just I’ve never been approached I. I am seeing a picture of who I think the. Who committed these crimes is. That what I’LL SEE PICTURE SO I! Don’t know if you heard Jessica Ridgeway case this was. With no maybe seven years ago and watching the news when she. Went Missing and just speaking I. Even if I don’t get other permission, I will almost always be able to tell if they’re alive or not.
00:45:01 – 00:50:00
The right away they were, she was missing and I was like she’s dead I just I just knew she was dead and I saw image of A. A young man and psychically I saw this image and then, but he looked so young I just. Didn’t didn’t seem like a fit like what they thought, but sure enough when the guy came forward, and they arrested, and he was seventeen years old, and I had seen that picture of him psychically before you know before he was discovered so i. do get information like that, but like I said you know if I were to call and be like Hey, I’m thinking you not all law. Into that and you know I’m not going to spend a lot of time and energy. Doing I’m sure they are inundated with calls like that. We can move on I just. I as I mentioned almost I almost want to call myself obsessed with that case just because I feel like I feel like. Because the police gotten involved in obstructing the case it Kinda makes me angry about it, and I wanna see it saw just for that reason, and as I mentioned, the chief of police was a major suspect in it, and I’m not saying I’m not saying he did it, but a lot of people think he did it, and he went to jail for beating a guy who found evidence that suggested. Suggested, he might have done it so it. That just makes me angry and frustrated, and just wanting to see how well I I don’t. WanNa, do this on the show or anything, but like yes, picture fan because I’ll tell you if it matches. What can definitely I will? Definitely I will email you a picture after after the show, and you can let me know what your thoughts are on it. You taught. We talked about past lives in kind of running out of time so I want to get their Your idea on past lives Is the same as the Indian Hindu kind of. A version of of reincarnation, or does it different in some ways? That’s complex, but I would similar idea. Certainly I think we are incarnating learning different lessons experiencing things from different perspectives so that we can have better understanding of the picture as a whole I. Do believe that we incarnated certainly as other humans, also beings from different planets and dimensions, and also as animals or insects I’ve had some crazy experiences. Like cockroaches where I had Karma with the Cockroach, ’cause like sometimes I’d be like. You know. There’d be somewhere. Ark, Roach like I say. And, then I I already had my training, and I started to look at the Karma with that particular. You know being and I realized that, so it’s it’s a wild thing and I feel like it’s very informative if you can find someone or if you want to connect with me, that’s one of these they help you with understanding some pass patterns in Karma you can have different lessons with patterns and Karma or Or you know Karma history with a particular soul. They were kind of going around over and over again, and you know similar iterations, but yeah I. Think this type of work is very interesting. Phobias often have a past life route anything that we’re afraid of or have resistance to very insightful, so, but here’s where I get confused. Are there is? has everybody lived before, or they’re to such things as new souls. There are I would say yeah, younger souls, newer souls and. I would say it’s unlikely that you’re going to cross someone that hasn’t had. Any lives, and by the way I want to clarify that I believe that you come in. You experience different levels of life before you. You don’t just incarnate right away into like a complex a human you probably come, and maybe you’re an Amoeba and then you’re just literally like trying to learn how to be here in different forums, and and then yeah, even as a human on which is one of the more complex worms you would probably come here. Many many different lifetimes as a human, so a lot of the young souls that are. Humans that are here now. There’s a lot of young souls here right now by the way and they’re. They’re doing you know. Some intense things have a lot of young soldiers. We have a lot of young so lessons, murderer, and like taking and. Haven’t yet learned how to be nice. It’s kind of like with children you know. Children Aren’t evil, but they’ll bite people at head, and they’ll steal whatever they want like. That’s what happened with young souls. To. Give me two months to kind of think about time it’s I can’t really stay focused on what I really want to ask you about so I’m going to try to stay on this past like for just a moment, this idea of The p people discover their past lives in in you working with them right, and so do they ever get mad at you because I’m not who I wanted to be. I’ve had I’ve got a one client where it was like so funny i. I said to her like I. Hope I don’t offend you, but you were madam in a past life.
00:50:00 – 00:55:08
She was like I knew. She was certain that she had been forced. She had told me. That I, think people tend to get confirmation of something where they just have this feeling about it. Something resonates for them or another client where you know. She ended up becoming a psychic herself a professional psychic. And I was telling her. This is your path, but you have a lot of fear because you were burnt as a witch past life, and she immediately just like burst into tears and it was like. I think her soul kind of acknowledging that unconscious fear that she’d been holding onto ever since that lifetime. I think you know that you talk about to tears and stuff that overwhelming moment of emotion when dealing with all this kind of stuff can really that that can tell you for a little, but the reason I brought up. That people maybe get mad at that that the I think a lot of people want to find out that my past life. I was King my past life I was Elvis, whatever but people want built that illusion of and I know I had that for myself when I was young and basically because of the way I learned about reincarnation. I read books about the the new. Ideas about that assault tick a complete a eight months of station, so a a fetus was born, and then while month into just station. I guess that’s when the soul reentered a new life, and that’s when it came out, so I had a celebrity who I thought I might have been in my past just because there were so many connections to it, and where I wasn’t in time and people who knew him. And I met very young, actually called me by his name a few times in the, and so I got this I in my head that I was reincarnated of the celebrity I think a lot of people have that or want that and to do you have that experience when when they come to you with preconceived notions of who I might have been. I. I’ve not really had that particular scenario. Play out principle. I’d also say that just because someone tells you know doesn’t mean they’re right or wrong and it doesn’t need. You’re right or wrong. Because I had some past life stuff where I remember thinking I feel like I was. This was this and and then at the time the information that I’d read was that you only have like. Like one concurrent life at a time and now based on my training, what I’ve learned I believe that we can have multiple incarnations that a time if you’re an older soul kind of like when you’re young, you study one thing and you go to preschool, but then when you’re in college, you might have courses and what happens when you get older, you can actually handle and juggle. Carnations line so yeah. I would say you know. I wouldn’t say that it was necessarily true or not true what she said, but just something to keep in mind I’ve had the opposite where I told them when they were someone and they it resonated, but it was kind of a shock because I think we tend to think that we are kind of small and maybe less influential than we probably are or have been So do we know? Am I gonNA phase. Do we all automatically always progress, can we? Can we digress in our next life, or in other words were instead of becoming a better person, more spiritually enlightened, more spiritually a pure Orion. That’s the word you WANNA use. Do we necessarily become that or can we go backwards and regressing become? Less than we were in all aspects. I guess I. Don’t know that I would say at as the regression, but if you know, something isn’t fully processed or healed or understood that we still have to deal with it, I think one of the things that can happen which I think is confusing to people sometimes misunderstand it as that. When you elevate the to a new level, it magnifies everything so there’s certain things that act as magnify. You, know visibility fame power money the UD, even all intelligence all of these things can magnify whatever pattern is there, so let’s say someone you know has maybe had a successful life, but kinda like on a smaller stage on a smaller scale, and then the kind of level up, and then it kind of May seem like they’re. Like you said going backwards or Reporting or whatever, but but really what’s happening. Is that that? kind of lesson was still needing to be learned on the level, but it just is showing up really hard at that new level of energy in life. Yet, does But I’m always going to be confused about this, and this is why I tell people I’ll in the closing. I’m going to remind you that. You got to download this stuff and play it several times. Because and I knew our was not going to be announced. Tonight I. Another one if you want. I. Definitely would because we’re not even touching the scratching the surface of where all of the things I’m curious about you, mention you know a baby in evil and all that kind of stuff, and I’ve said several times I I don’t think there’s such thing is a baby being born evil, but I am sure that people.
00:55:09 – 01:00:02
have acted on evily in the world, so I just want I know. This is a very high level kind of. But your. Your. thoughts on good and evil, or are they, are they an entity are the energy what are they? Yeah I don’t usually use. The terms got a needle. I I tend to think of it as kind of light, light and dark energy or light dark forces, and at the end of the day. You know I think they’re old there and I don’t think we actually get through the incarnation process without experiencing some of those darker elements, but at the same time being fully in the dark as a you know very hopeful, either, so I think. Think in terms of like an evil baby I don’t believe in that per se, but I do believe that there are entities and things that some people have labeled Dima beings that are very dark, and they can come have a heyday and have that experience then those of us who are very much working in the light hard to say for some people. They don’t necessarily here, but you’ve probably been just as dark and now you’re trying to. Balance that out and do the opposite so I think that. It gets often misunderstood. I don’t. Recommend for people to purposely work with our energies, but at the same time it is a part of what’s here, and it’s only sometimes through the experience of that that we learn why it’s not a good idea. Right I get that, but I combat to the example of Hitler. I don’t believe. Hitler was born unable baby right so at some point he did he obviously through his actions and or the life. You would lead. became an evil person, or just doing evil deeds entire life Do you have any insight on how bad baby that was born I? Non Evil entity grew into becoming an evil man. I believe that he was a young soul I. believe that he also. A lot of trauma and darkness I’m this is something I had not gotten before, but by the way I’m getting it now that he actually had sexual trauma as a child, and by the way this is a huge. Source an opening for the darkness, the huge problem that has been hidden that is now starting to come to light of like when children experience especially sexual trauma. When they’re still a child, it fractures the person and they are. Very difficult for them, it takes a very advanced sold to be able to process through that without turning dark themselves so that psychically what I just thought I hadn’t gotten up before, but it kind of makes sense to me now. I think he just had you know. He had experienced darkness, and he’s just passing on that darkness, and that’s something at the very. Very. Young soul thing to do like an eye for an eye kind of thing, instead of like wait, this continues on as sort of abuse cycle. You know the older souls more mature people can be like. Oh I! Know you hit me, but I don’t have to hit you back. Young souls are just like nope. You Stab me I’m GonNa stab you probably. Definitely makes sense, but it just kind of a boggles. My mind is something I think about, and I’m probably a Weirdo. For for having that kind of a lot in my life is how some somebody who was not. Not, born, evil can become that evil because it almost and I don’t even I. Probably don’t even go here within with the name, but to me it’s almost panic. I WanNa read that the website off because we’re. We’re coming up on the hour here and talk. I’ll just very quickly about your book and I want to understand the difference between Archangel Angel, but so the the website is healing, powers dot net, and he for some reason to the about pages slash Laura powers instead of about but. But so far to just healing powers that, of course the link will be in description. Nice and Click Ball, so you don’t have to, but for the I know most of the people want are in cars or taking the podcast with them, as they do the choice, and here it, and did not necessarily a visual thing so I just wanted to know healing powers. All all them were dot net. and so and we’ll link to all the books as well. They are seven books out now and you working on two more credible but so the latest book is called archangels in associate ascended masters Can you help me out with this idea of archangels? What’s the difference between an Archangel and an angel? An Angel is a broad term just like an animal. It’s a very broad term. Right like includes. Cows and chickens and you know. Dogs or whatever elephants bed, angels abroad term, and then an archangels, Larry, specific type of angel that still works of humanity there angels that don’t work with humans at all, and there are a high level angel that still does work with you so when you work with an Archangel, you work with that angel as well as all the other angels that are kind of like underneath them or Or, supporting them, so it’s a very powerful type of angel that you can call him. That still works in human affairs, and what does the ended masters mean, and Masters is a being? That was human or another former than Carney.
01:00:02 – 01:05:01
Being that doesn’t need to necessarily in Kearney, but they are still choosing to help humans and others that are in car needed on their lessons and their path.

Reality TV has become a popular form of entertainment. Now, people all over the world are turning on and tuning in to see the latest hype about their favorite “real” situation and those taking part in it. Whether their interests lie on a desert island or the big city and bright lights, it is easy to find something to satisfy your yearnings.
The vast range of topics that reality TV has come to encompass has made it near to impossible to ignore, and that is, perhaps what makes this newer form of entertainment interesting to those who watch.Over the past several years, it has become more important for those living in society to connect with those around them. Reality TV allows those who watch to do just that.
No matter how indirect the connection, it’s still present and very alive. Curiosity plays a big role in this, as often times, viewers will try to put themselves in a particular situation, and figure out how they might react. The difference is it’s actually happening to someone and not made up; part of the enchantment is, it isn’t happening to the viewers, which makes it more fun to watch from afar.
Reality TV has turned into somewhat of a real-life soap opera, complete with characters whose fates are often decided in different ways. In some cases, these fates are decided by viewers, which makes it that much more intriguing. The reason for this is that people tend to care about something more when they can take an active part in it.
Reality TV has also given regular viewers the opportunity to directly participate, while just being themselves in the process. There is, however, a certain amount of falseness that must be incorporated into acting out real situations, because of the nature of television itself, but, for the most part, it’s all about real people facing real challenges.
This type of television is very unique for a couple of reasons. The shows are often relatively short in duration, and are usually broadcasted annually, so as not to saturate the airwaves and overstay its welcome. This also helps boost the ratings for each particular show, as the viewing public isn’t getting too much at one time.
Reality TV has also presented a diverse side to the entertainment industry never seen before. It has become fun and interesting to follow each participant, because he or she is a person with a real conflict, and this really matters to viewers. Whether the show is based around legality issues as seen on court TV, a competition for the next best entertainer, or survival of the fittest, the steaks are always high. This is, perhaps, why reality TV has become so captivating, and why it is, undoubtedly, here to stay.
The first thing you will need is a compatible computer. Today every new computer is already set up with everything you will need. A basic sound card with a mic and line in jack. If you do not have a sound card they are very cheap and you can get a good one from any standard computer shop.
Next you will need a good mic. These come in all sizes and shapes with different configurations however a general all round mic like the Logitech Noise-canceling microphone is fine for beginners. I suggest you get a desk top one to start with, as you may want to move into video later and so you wont want a headset in your videos.
Of course you could go up a stage and get a preamp with a professional mic but this will start running into dollars and the whole aim of this article is to help you get started.
Next you will want to get some cables to connect up your tape recorder and other audio equipment. Again the computer stores now have packs that will connect up pretty well any device into your computer to digitize your sound. You want to record directly onto your computer however you can get those old tapes and Vinyl records into a digital format also.
SOFTWARE – RECORDING
Recording your audio is probably one of the most critical parts of this process and again you can get software that ranges from free to many thousands of dollars. For this exercise I suggest you download the free copy of Audacity. This is an excellent free software package that will allow you to record from your microphone or any equipment you have.
It provides excellent editing capabilities and also will allow you to edit multiple tracks and then combine them into one single track. For a quick overview of how to do this you can watch this video and also download the software
SOFTWARE – CONVERTING
The next piece of software you will need for your studio is a converting program that will allow you to convert different formats. For example you may have a real audio file and you want to convert it to mp3. dBpoweramp is like the Swiss army knife for the audio industry and will convert just about any file to any other file format.
Convert from one format to another, just about every audio type is supported: mp3, mp4, Windows Media Audio (wma), Ogg Vorbis, AAC, Monkeys Audio, FLAC and many others whilst preserving ID Tags. It will also rip CDs for you.
SOFTWARE – REDUCTION
If you are going to stream an mp3 direct then you may want to recompile the file to a smaller format. RazorLame is a so-called “front-end” for use with LAME. LAME is a great MP3-Encoder, it’s very fast, it produces high-quality files, has many advanced features (like Variable Bitrates and Joint-Stereo), and it’s open source. Unfortunately, it is a command line utility, and that is where RazorLame comes in: It provides an easy-to-use graphical user-interface which makes MP3-encoding even easier!
The best way to use this software is to get one file and compile in a number of different formats to test the size against quality.
There are a few different ways of streaming your new audio files. If you have Macromedia products you can simple organize this your self however there are some great third party programs around that will do it all for you at a fraction of the cost.
MP3 SOUND STREAM
This is a simple piece of software that takes any mp3 or wav audio and converts the whole file into a swf file and then attaches a button so that viewers can listen on a web page without needing to download any extra software. This is because the flash plugin is on 98% of computes and if not it will automatically detect and load the small plugin. This is great for anyone not wanting to get into all the technical aspects of streaming audio.
You will not need to reduce your files at all with this program as it does it all for you. This is perfect for anyone wanting to stream one file at a time and wants to do it quickly and efficiently. It will stream even over most modem connections.
For people wanting to stream a number of files then MSIJukebox is a great alternative. This software lets you choose any number of mp3 files and then organises them using an XML file. By using the above free programs you can significantly reduce the size of these files to save on bandwidth.
Because MSIJukebox streams the actual mp3 you can also have a lot higher quality playback including stereo files. This is much better for those wanting to stream a number of very high quality mp3 files.
So there you have it. A complete studio set up for under $100. Just download all the free software and purchase any of the streaming audio products that you want. You can then create, edit and manipulate any audio files you like. You will also be able to add these audios to your website.
