A Guided Life
[00:00:00] Jeremiah: Hello, my fellow
Terrestrials coming to you from an RV deep in the
Carolina Mountains. Welcome to the What
If They’re Wrong. Podcast. The podcast that wants you to question everything. Your reality is about to be
Hello and welcome to the What If the Wrong podcast, the podcast that wants you to question everything. I’m joined today by Laura. We’re gonna be talking about her podcast, A Guided Life, and also she does a TV program. We’ll talk about that too. So I’ll introduce her now. Hello, Laura.
[00:00:52] Laura: Hello, Jeremiah.
Thanks for having me.
[00:00:55] Jeremiah: Yes, thanks for coming on. Uh, hope All is well over there. .
[00:00:59] Laura: Can’t complain. . Sunny, sunny, uh, Southern California. . Yeah.
[00:01:04] Jeremiah: You guys got good weather over there? For sure. We do.
[00:01:06] Laura: Yeah. . But we pay for it too. .
[00:01:09] Jeremiah: Oh, yeah. Yeah. The electric bills have gone up, like even here in Carolina. Mm-hmm. It’s crazy.
Mm-hmm. . Mm-hmm. .
[00:01:16] Laura: Mm-hmm. . Yeah. Yeah. We’re, we’re having to be more conscientious, which I guess we should be anyways, but even more.
[00:01:26] Jeremiah: Yeah, for sure. So, um, your podcast covers a lot of the quote unquote WOOWOO stuff. Stuff that I cover too, like mediums and stuff like that. Do you yourself have any like, special abilities or anything like that and how did you find out about that?
[00:01:49] Laura: Oh yeah, that’s a good question. So, uh, yes, I do, uh, consider myself and label myself as a psychic medium, uh, and an energy healer. Uh, and you know, it’s funny because I didn’t start calling myself that until. Spring of 2020. So it’s been almost a couple years now. Oh my gosh. Almost three years now. And before that though. I can see how in hindsight I had all these experiences that sort of set me up or led me to fully embrace being a psychic medium.
And it did take me some time to feel comfortable even calling myself that. Um, Gosh, uh, I wanna say now in hindsight, I can see that. . It all started in my teens when I started having dream visitations from past loved ones and ascended masters. So more specifically, my paternal grandmother passed away in my teens.
She was the first fr like close family member to have passed away. And the night that she passed away, it was, it was expected. She was in hospice. We had visited her in hospice and she just really. You know, a shell of a person. She wasn’t even awake and the machine was breathing for her. And, but we still got to sort of say our goodbyes even though it wasn’t my grandma laying there, not to me.
And, um, that night. I had a dream with her, and in that dream, she was wearing white and she walked through the door of my great-grandmother’s house, who at the time was still alive on the arm of her husband, so we called him Poppy. My grandfather, who at the time was also still alive and behind her through the front door, it was bright white light.
and I said, grandma, you’re all better. And she said, yes, I am. Then it was the next day that we found out that she had passed through the night. So for me, I knew that that was a visitation. I knew there was something more to that dream, especially because I still remember it so well, 20 plus years later.
So that was sort of dream number one when it came to visitations of people who had passed. It was also around that time that I had a dream visitation from Jesus and that dream visitation was. Significant not because of what he asked me to do, and I’ll, I’ll share that in just a second. But also because of where I was in my religious journey at the time, I grew up in a Christian and Jewish household, so multi-religious, multicultural.
My mom’s Korean, my dad is white, Caucasian, over and. , I was brought up in this multi-religious household where I felt very lucky to be exposed to both religions, and I got to go to synagogue. I got to go to church. And I remember really loving the fellowship in both loving the lessons that were taught, but there were certain things from both religions that just didn’t sit well with me, and I was really trying and really searching and trying to.
Decide, I, I, I felt like one of the two had to be the religion that I grew up with, and I would have these thoughts and things because I was going to church and going to synagogue. So they were sort of on the forefront of my mind. I, I suppose so it was around that time when I was deciding, am I more Jewish?
Am I more Christian, that I had this dream visitation from Jesus. And so that just really confused me because he walked. On the arm of a man wearing like a flannel, but the man’s arm . And I remember it was like a really buff arm. Um, but he was, it was grayed out. Like all I saw was him arm and arm with a man.
I, I, I, I didn’t know, I couldn’t see anything else about the man except his arm and he was in gray. It was. No color, but Jesus, who I remember thinking, oh wow, he’s a lot shorter than I thought came in, in full color, but he looked like the, the Jesus you would see in like a Renaissance painting. And, and I, and I’ve realized that now that was so, I could recognize that it was Jesus, cuz that was the image that I was familiar with.
And he was wearing, um, blue and white and like, you know, like the robes that he would wear. He came in, they both came in through this, you’re aesc, cloudy, tunnel, , you know, just like sort of that, the quintessential tunnel that you know, people would go through to go to the other side. It was like this really cloudy, hazy, but it was like rainbowy colored, cloudy, hazy tunnel.
He walked over to me. I was standing on one side and they were on the other, but they came to me and I remember thinking like, whoa. What’s going on here? And I knew it was a visitation. I innately knew that it wasn’t just a dream. There was something more to this. How I knew that, I don’t know, I just innately knew.
And so he walked up to me and the only thing that he asked me was if I would, his would spread his word. That’s all he asked me. And in that split second before I answered him, I had a million thoughts going on in my head, like, did he have the right person? Why me? He wants me to evangelize. Like that doesn’t sit right with me at all.
Like all of these thoughts were going on in my head. So the answer that I came up with was, I’ll try. And that’s what I said to Jesus. I’ll try. And that was enough for him because he and the great out man, they turned around, they left, they went back through the tunnel and then I re and then I woke up.
And so that dream had stuck with me for years cuz I remember thinking, okay, obviously that means that I’m gonna probably be Christian . Like that’s what I thought. Even though I know Jew, uh, Jesus was Jewish. So , so, so, you know, that dream stuck with me. Well, I’m, you know, I’m sitting here waiting to feel more Christian and, uh, I find Sylvia Brown.
I find Sylvia Brown books for the first time, and Sylvia Brown, for those who may not know, was a psychic medium who was really big into spirituality. She wrote a lot of books about the other side and spirit guides, and mother godfather, God angels, like all these concepts and ideas that I never learned before.
and I remember when I first started reading her books, I was hungry for more like what she wrote, spoke to my soul what I was waiting to feel in either a ju in with Judaism or Christianity I found in spirituality. And I was even more confused by that cuz now I’m thinking, well where does Jesus fit into this?
Like where does spreading his word fit into this? So, wow, this is really answering your question, a really long way, so fast forward to. Now I, I learned to, I learned that I was channel writing, uh, cuz I visited a psychic. Um, I also visited another psychic who told me to start meditating, to learn to hone into my intuition, which at the time I thought meant, uh, you know, you, you listen better when you’re not supposed to do something or when something bad’s gonna happen.
And it was all about that. Little did I know that meditating would open my intuition up to actually connecting to the other. And I kind of knew I had a predisposition. I knew it within me that I was meant to connect to spirit on the other side, but I was blocked. And I was blocked because of what I’ve learned past life persecution.
Of speaking my truth, speaking my word, and it getting me really hurt or killed in past lives. And so in this life, it really was a block. Even though I felt safe in this life, to be able to explore mediumship and to do all those things, it was a block that he had to get. . And so I, I did, I got through it by, through baby steps of, you know, learning that I was channel writing from, um, from another psychic medium who told me that to, okay, well if I’m channel writing and it feels like this, maybe if I actually ask questions, you know, see what the answer comes, and learning that, that was from my spirit guides.
And then with my spirit guides exploring medium. Again, because I was fascinated by the idea. I loved watching the John Edward shows and I loved watching, you know, the t Theresa Caputo’s and all of those mediums on TV would bring me to tears every time. And I would get so excited and I would go down those rabbit holes on YouTube because I just was really hungry for more.
So then, you know, came 2020, I connected with my, my first . Spirits, um, that had lived a life here recently. And the reason why, another reason why I took that turn or that that part of my journey was because I wanted to be awake and I wanted to be more in control of when those connections with people who have passed would happen because from the time my grandmother passed to, even to this day, I would get a lot of visitations in my dreams.
whether it was friends who’ve passed, family who’ve passed, family of friends who have passed, coworkers of family who’ve passed, they would visit me in my dreams and I remember thinking like, well, I wanna be, I wanna, I wanna be the one to initiate that. Or I wanna, I want to be awake when it happens. So it’s not just what I think of at the time in my dream to ask them or communicate with them with, I wanna be conscious of what I wanna ask and what I wanna know.
That’s what led me to really start to explore, um, mediumship and to get me to where I am now, which is where I do readings when I’m not doing my full-time nursing job and podcasting and everything else. So
[00:11:57] Jeremiah: Yeah, it’s a interesting come up for, uh, figuring that out. And for anyone listening who might not know, like what do you mean by channeling
[00:12:08] Laura: the, oh, that’s a information, that’s a good.
Yeah, so, um, maybe I, I can help explain it by, by giving context as to why I was even told that was happening. I went back to school to get my bachelor’s and then my master’s of science and nursing degree. 20, whatever, just like a couple years before I started, um, calling myself a medium. And I remember the, the thing that I was worried about going to school about after all these years was writing the papers.
And then when school started and I started writing the papers, I was like, oh, this is, this is actually not that hard. Like this is really coming to me. And, you know, I’m able to say what I wanna say and it sounds clear and I’m getting good grades on my papers. And, um, I went to go visit a, a psychic and she.
I see, I see You’ve been Chan channel writing and she didn’t know I was in school. She didn’t know I was doing papers. I was like, oh, really? She was like, yeah, you’re writing a lot and you know, you could feel that what’s coming through. Yeah, you can give yourself a pat on the back, but know that actually a lot of that information’s coming from the other side.
I was like, that is fascinating. And so that’s when I decided, well, if I’m channeling unintentionally, what happens if I start to channel intent? . So what I would do is I would sit there with my pen and paper and I would just sort of quiet my mind. I was already meditating at this point, so I kind of got into that same state of taking some deep breaths, focusing on my breathing, and then once I felt that I was in that space and I created that space of being open to communication from the other side, I would write down a question, and then for the answer, I would just, whatever words started popping into my.
That’s what I would write down, and I wouldn’t sit there and I wouldn’t read it. I wouldn’t analyze it until I was done. And then going back and reading it, your mind is blown because you’ve created sentences without realizing it. And these sentences are answers to your question that perhaps you never would’ve thought of.
Uh, one good example of that if I can share quickly, cause I know I’m, my answers are long-winded. Um, no, you’re fine. Okay, thanks. Uh, so going back to that dream that I had with Jesus. Um, when I learned that I was channeling, this was about end of 2019, early 2020, um, I decided, well, why not channel Jesus and ask him what he meant by that dream?
I mean, this is how long this dream has been following me. And so I asked him about what he meant by spreading his word, and that’s when he told me that. , I’m meant to spread the word of love cuz that’s what Jesus did. So I was like, okay, that I can do like, that I feel like is, goes above and beyond all religion.
That’s just humanity. Right? So I could do that. And I also asked him about the great out man that, that, that walked with him and I asked him like thinking, okay, maybe my guardian angel, my spirit guide, or me, I mean, I don’t know. And. and the answer that I wrote was one that never, ever, ever crossed my mind and I was channel writing this and I wrote down that it was God and I had to put my pen down and stop.
That was one time when I actually did analyze as soon as I wrote it down, cuz I couldn’t believe, I couldn’t believe that I felt so unworthy at the same time, is feeling an amazement that that’s who it was. That’s channel writing. .
[00:15:33] Jeremiah: Yeah. The um, I remember Sylvia Brown, she was on, uh Yeah. Montel Williams all the time.
Yep. Yep. Yeah, I remember that. Um,
[00:15:42] Laura: with the Husky voice. .
[00:15:44] Jeremiah: Yeah. I used to love the Monte Williams show. Uh, he always had like good stuff on there, uh, . But um, yeah, I think, I think everyone has some type of, I don’t want to say power, but some type of ability. Yeah. It’s just being able to tap into it. Mm-hmm. . Mm.
agree. And I think that, um, you know, I, I talk with my wife a lot about Jesus and stuff like that, and she’s like, well, why don’t you become a Christian? Or whatever? And I’m like, well, I don’t think that’s what he was trying to do. Like, um, I think he was trying to tell people that they can be all powerful just like him.
Um, I think he was trying to say, cuz I think there’s a passage that was like, everything I can do, you can do, or something like that. I’m paraphrasing , but, um, yeah, I think, yeah, he was just trying to say like, Hey, wise up, don’t be freaking cavemen. , .
[00:16:47] Laura: Yeah. Don’t treat each other like cavemen. . Yeah. I, I agree. Think that, and, you know, and not to be like controversial or anything like that, but, um, I, I think that a lot has gotten lost in translation between when he was here and now.
I mean, we’re talking thousands of years, right? And I mean, you play the game, telephone and , you could be five people down and it’s already misconstrued. So I think that a lot of. Things get lost in translation over, over time. I think that there people have intentions that that could also, you know, misconstrue and change the meaning and the intentions of what religion was meant to be.
And so I agree. I I like that Jesus asked me to, um, spread his word of love because I feel like that that goes back to, the basics and back to the foundation and the back to the reason of why he was put on this planet to begin with, along with the other ascended masters along with Buddha, along with Rumi, along with whoever that that there, that they all had.
Very, very similar, uh, a basic reason to have the impact that they did on, on, on humans and on earth. And so I, I like that I’m asked to just bring it back down to the basics and that it is that simple. .
[00:18:16] Jeremiah: So you were talking about like, um, seeing passed on loved ones and friends or whatever. Mm-hmm. , uh, do you get to choose who you talk to or who, who you see?
Or do they just kind of come when they want?
[00:18:29] Laura: Yeah, that’s a good question. I feel like it’s both. Uh, so, um, usually if I’m either sleeping and dreaming or I’m about to wake up, or, or again, in that state, in between sleep and awake, then I usually don’t get to choose. Not, no, not usually. I never get to choose
They just, whoever comes, comes. Um, but if I’m doing a session, for instance, with a client or I am thinking about somebody, whether that’s me choosing. They’re in my space and I picked up on that. Um, then it’s, then I get, then I get to choose. But do I really get to choose ? Because then it’s like, well, how did that client get in front of me to begin with?
Like, were they guided? And so, I mean, I guess to. To more simply answer your question, uh, when I’m sleeping, no, it’s, they come and they choose, you know, when they come, I don’t go in asking, I wanna, I want this person to visit me tonight. Doesn’t happen like that. Um, but if I’m in a reading, I, I still, I still open it up to whoever is meant to come for that person can come through.
So, but, but it’s more on my terms as far as time, I guess ,
[00:19:49] Jeremiah: so. You talked about like guardian angels and stuff like that. Do you have a guardian angel
[00:19:55] Laura: yourself? Yeah. Good question. So we, we all do, uh, we all have soul teams, um, and guardian angels make up, um, a part of that team along with spirit guides, ascended, masters, et cetera.
Um, and I do, I actually met my spirit, g sorry. I met my, um, guardian angel, uh, through a guided meditation. Uh, that was led by Kyle Gray. He’s a big angel communicator out in the uk, and I got to meet my guardian angel. And that was another example of, I knew it was my guardian angel because I kind of had a preconceived notion of what my guardian angel may look like.
Like I kind of, you know, white, white with wings, , you know, just kind of this preconceived notion. So when we were doing the guided meditation and he had the guardian angel, Appeared to you. I was in shock of who was in front of me. So that’s how I knew it wasn’t me. Uh, and so I, I met my guardian angel that way.
And what’s interesting is that he didn’t have wings. Like he was very much, he came to me in a very human form. Um, but he did come from, I don’t know if it’s tribal or I don’t know if. , like ancient, uh, from what he was wearing because he was wearing, uh, it looked like a tunic. It had jewels on, on it along the hem, um, of the tunic.
Uh, but it was very basic. Like it wasn’t, he didn’t have any pants and, and, you know, it was like long, almost like a, like a long skirt. It went just above his knees and maybe to his knees and he was wearing sandals. So kind of had the impression of both. Very simplistic, tribal, but also perhaps even like an ancient garb of some sort.
But, um, yeah, you know, he came to me, um, as a, as a black man and he had a longer curly hair, um, and, uh, younger looking and, uh, yeah, it was, he was not what I expected to see, but I appreciate that because again, it made me realize it. me making it up because it was something I never would’ve thought. So yeah, I.
[00:22:09] Jeremiah: Yeah. And I, um, yeah, just, uh, linked you up with Maria and, uh, I had interviewed her a couple episodes ago about her guardian Angel Fel. Yeah. She had an interesting tale. So I hope you guys can really talk about that and, and share your, you know, experiences. So you said something earlier that kind of caught my attention was the.
some about someone who had existed on Earth before. So I’m assuming you believe in like past life and everything.
[00:22:44] Laura: Oh yeah. Yes. Yeah, I’ve actually got to, um, visit one of my own past lives. I did a life between life regression session, and part of that was having to experience the death of a past life to then get into that space in between, um, which is the other side.
So, yes, definitely b definitely, um, know that carnation reincarnation, um, is a, . Yeah, yeah,
[00:23:11] Jeremiah: yeah. . Yeah. You hear about that a lot. Like a lot of the old ancient, uh, scriptures and stuff talk about reincarnation and, uh, even other religions talk about, you know, how we’re here to like spiritually grow or whatever.
Mm-hmm. and learn lessons and, and then if you don’t do good enough, then you gotta come back and reteach or rele. , um, have you heard anything about the other side while you’ve gone on this journey? And like what, uh, what the, what’s That’s all like ? Yeah,
[00:23:47] Laura: definitely. I can’t talk. Oh, you , you’re fine. It’s, it’s late, huh?
Um, no, definitely. Uh, oops. What, uh, one thing that I have learned. Um, sort of preface before I, before I share, is that it can look different to everyone . So I’ll share what, what I experienced and what I saw. Uh, but I also want to share with your listeners that that doesn’t mean that that’s what you would have to experience too, or, um, you know, what, what to expect because everything’s so different.
Uh, One space that I’ll talk about, uh, di is one that I visited in that life between life regression session after I experienced the, the death of the life that, um, she, my, my facilitator had me go through. I first of all found myself outside of my body. Watching my body die, which I appreciated, to be honest, because then you don’t experience the pain associated with dying.
Uh, especially because that death was, was a pretty traumatic death. And so I appreciated that I didn’t have to experience the pain. And what was interesting is once I was outside of my body, Ober, observing myself dying, it was very much out, like out of a curiosity and. there. It wasn’t like, um, emotional connection to the body.
So that was kind of interesting. And then what happened was I, from there, remember being in space, um, and just seeing, I don’t know if you’ve seen those images of all the galaxies, you know, like though that picture of all the, there’s billions of galaxies. There’s this a picture out there. Oh yeah, yeah, yeah.
And it’s amazing. Um, and so I remember like, they weren’t small like that, but. The planets and like the stars and the, you know, different galaxies and just seeing everything. And then all of a sudden I’m being pulled at a 45 degree angle to a point, and the closer I get to that point, the brighter the light gets, and the faster I go.
It’s almost like a, like a slingshot or something, or I’m, and as soon as I, I, I’m going super fast and I make it to this white space. It’s like, who? Like that. And I’m in this. Space. It’s almost like a va, almost like a vacuum. No walls, no ground, no sound, just dead silence and the space. And it very much felt like a holding place.
Like it felt like I was there waiting for somebody and I was actually, my guide greeted me and met me there. And then that’s where we had our conversation in that regression session. I didn’t leave that space. Not to say that when I was, when I actually did die from that life and I was on the other side, that I stayed there.
I really don’t feel like that. I feel like I wasn’t meant to go further than that for the time of that regression session, but when I actually left that life, I definitely feel like I did go further than that. Wasn’t just stuck in this limbo. What I do know is that we do have a council of elders, and we all have a council of elders that we go to see, and it’s a non-judgmental space.
It’s not like going to court. It’s like going to see a group of entities who are very wise and very patient, very non-judgmental, very loving, to help you to see what you learned in the life you had, what you could have done better. You know, what can you do better next time if there is a next. . Uh, so things like that, um, I’ve learned exist.
On the other side, we always hear about how when you are on the other side, you can, you see sort of like your book and how, um, you know, how you did in life and, um, you experienced the, the emotions that you made other people feel and things like that. So things like that exist on the other side. Uh, Sylvia Brown also actually explains details, visual details of what the other side looks like.
Um, I myself have not gotten to visit yet, though I have done guided meditations where I’ve met my guide in either a garden or um, in a library. It’s funny you say
[00:28:06] Jeremiah: that cuz that Maria Yeah, that Maria lady, uh, was in type of library and saw the big book. Her book or whatever.
[00:28:15] Laura: Yes, I remember that part of your, of the episode.
That is such a good episode. Oh, I love she go on my show . Um, but anyway, yeah, so I remember hearing her about that and part of the guided meditation was to go there to meet your guide and, um, It was, it was, you know, it had that sort of Roman temple feel or Greek temple feel, and you walk, you walk in and, and there’s other people about library everywhere, almost like what you would consider Kasik records.
I don’t know if you’ve heard of a Kasik Records, so something like that, you know, and, and, and your, your book can be there. I think the purpose of that meditation for me was to go and, and meet my guides. So I didn’t really spend too much time on the books or anything like that. Didn’t wander. Yeah, I didn’t really wander around and just went straight to him and
Um, let him show me what he needed to, uh, I also. Was told by my guide when I did that life Between life regression session, I asked about um, mermaids. And the reason why is because I have, since I was a child, love mermaids. I feel very connected to them. Look out in the ocean and I feel almost homesick, which is weird because the ocean kind of scares me a little bit.
I don’t like to go in too deep. Um, It is kind of an interesting sort of dichotomy, I guess, as far as what I’m long for from it, but also, uh, my human fear of, ooh, like it’s very big and vast and unknown and, and it could kill me. So, um, there’s that, that I sort of struggle with, but I still love mermaids.
And so in that session we asked about that, and I’m talking about this because it gave me a glimpse about the other side as. and when I asked my guide why this affinity for mermaids, uh, he said, and his name’s Jason, he told me that it’s a place that our souls go to. It’s another dimension that we go to that is water.
Or waterlike that our souls can go to either in between lives or while we’re living a life here and maybe we’re sleeping and you know, we can astral travel, we can go there, and it’s a place for our souls to rest and relax. For those that find that sort of rest and relaxation in that type of environment, again, it’s not for everybody.
Um, and the reason is because here on Earth we are very limited with water. We can’t breathe in it. We can’t stain it for that long. I mean, we could stain it for a while. We gotta come up to land at some point. Um, whereas there, we, we lose that. We can, we can breathe in it, we can lounge in it, we can be in it for as long as we need to.
And it’s really rejuvenating and that’s why I think water is very rejuvenating for a lot of people too. But it’s a different, different thing. . So that’s another glimpse is that there are different dimensions. It reminds me of Star Trek, you know, how they can go to like visit different dimensions and realms.
They just go through a door and they’re there or they can, you know, make it just appear and manifest. And even though it’s maybe not real, but it reminded me of that where you can go to these different dimensions. Um, and that’s how explained it was a dimension. . I thought that that was really fascinating as well.
And that would, that would be, that’d probably be the extent of my experience of actually visiting, whether through guided meditation or through regression session.
[00:31:27] Jeremiah: Yeah. The, um, have you ever heard of the theory of like, when you die, , you get transported to like another planet somewhere . Mm-hmm. to live like a different existence, because I’ve heard someone talking about that before.
[00:31:41] Laura: Oh, that’s interesting. You know, maybe the word planet is just a word for dimension. You know what I mean? Like a way to maybe explain that. But one thing that I’ve learned with the spirit world is you never say, never, never say it’s always like this or always like that because, I am gonna say always, cuz they’re always showing us, showing me at least how, what I thought one way, actually, actually, here’s the exception to that rule, or here’s the exception, or no, actually it happens this way.
So, you know, I, I don’t, I don’t doubt that, um, that maybe people, uh, when they do pass, they go to something that maybe is more, um, more extraterrestrial because perhaps that. The family that they come from, perhaps that brings them comfort and so that’s what will manifest for them. I mean, who knows? I’ve, I’m definitely, I’m certainly no, no expert when it comes to it, just based on experience and what I hear from others.
But I have definitely connected to, um, extraterrestrials too. So,
[00:32:41] Jeremiah: yeah. And, um, you had said about when you go to the other side, there’s that council of elders or whatever. Yeah. And the non-judgment, I was watching a YouTube video. This guy had a near death experience and he went, um, before, I guess you would call it God or a creator or whatever.
Mm-hmm. . He had to watch like a movie of his. And see like all the wrong and good that he’s done. And he said that it was hard because he couldn’t give excuses or anything. Like he couldn’t say like, this is why I did that bad thing, or this is, you know what I mean? Like mm-hmm. , he was kind of forced to just watch it and see, and he said it was like, Really hard and scary because mm-hmm.
usually as like a human, you want to like rebuttal. Like, this is why I did that bad thing. And yeah. He’s like, I couldn’t, and they could see right through me and or God or whatever, could see right through me. And, and uh, so what, what is your. Take on like near death experiences. And why does it seem like a lot of ’em get told, like, it’s not your time yet, you gotta come back to earth.
[00:33:52] Laura: Yeah. Well, um, I, I mean, I definitely think that near death experiences are, are a great way for, for those who have experienced them, to come back and, and re remind us and tell us of what it’s like. I love when I get to speak to a, a near death experiencer because I feel like that they have, while living this life and, and consciously can remember, they’ve gotten to go and visit and come back.
Not to say that they , that they, um, had a pleasant time doing it. Like they, obviously their body died , you know, for some reason. So I’m sure they still got, felt like they got hit by a Mac truck when they, when they came back from it. Um, but I definitely feel like it’s such a, if we can look at the silver lining, it’s such a blessing for us to.
To listen to their experiences because they come back with so much knowledge, uh, whether it’s informational, educational, or entertaining. I, I mean, I hate to say entertaining, but for some of us, some people are like, oh, that’s just really interesting. And that just peaks their interest enough to maybe grasp them and they explore more.
Um, for others it’s, it can be very validating, um, when they hear. What somebody saw or experienced is, is what they felt to be true. So I think that, um, you know, that they can, can be really help, uh, humanity in so many ways and I’m so grateful for the, the experiencers that do come out and share. I feel that a lot of them maybe are compelled to do so because the knowledge that they received is just so great.
Um, so I, I’m really grateful for when they do do that and perhaps. , you know, there seems to be more these days because maybe they’re speaking up more. Um, you know, obviously if somebody has nearly died, we’re gonna hear more from them versus those who have died, unless of course you connect with them through mediumship.
So that can also maybe attribute to it as well. But it could just be that we’re in the space where, I mean, it’s easy for me to say I’m, I’m, I’m really like engulfed in the whole, uh, spirituality thing. But that, uh, Seems to be talked about more, definitely more before, you know, when I was reading Sylvia Brown, that was really the only place that I was hearing about it.
Uh, now we have. YouTube and we’ve got podcasts and we’ve got the internet and we’ve got socials. So there’s definitely more buzz going on, or it’s at least easier to access that information. And so you can start to create these communities, international communities of people who have experienced death and have come back from it.
Um, and uh, what I’ve been told, When you do, uh, a life between life session, I keep talking about it, but it was really profound and I think pertinent to our discussion, um, that it, it can yield very similar effects and information as having a near death now. I’m not trying to compare, say, one’s better or the other, but what I’m saying is that you don’t have to die and come back to experience the same thing.
You can do it through a regression session or through hypnosis again, cuz it yields a lot of really valuable information, I think, and the person is so changed and they just seem to really, again, come back with, uh, this wealth of knowledge, not to mention the physical effects that they have. I remember, um, Maria was talking about.
She, she like blows up electronics, , which I’ve heard people, they can’t wear watches, you know, they can’t be near electronics cuz they stop working and things like that. So it’s amazing the, the physical effects as, as well that come with it. But I think it’s fantastic. It sucks that the person had to, their body had to go through that.
But the information that they can receive and share with humanity, I think is just in.
[00:37:44] Jeremiah: Yeah. I wonder if like, the other side, I don’t wanna say does it on purpose, but like, maybe they use it as like a doorway type of thing, or like to send the message out. Um, cause yeah, maybe they, there’s not another way to do it.
So if they’re like, if they’re like, Hey, yeah, it’s not really your time yet, you gotta go, but take this little bit of knowledge with you, . Yeah. And share. You
[00:38:11] Laura: know, you gotta kind of wonder too what’s going on around the time of some of these, um, experiencers, like were they just maybe the, they were ignoring the red flags and it was just sort of the big one.
You know, that two by four that they talk about it. If you keep ignoring the red flags, they’re gonna hit you with the two by four. And for some it’s could be that extreme. And, um, but yeah, no, I, I, I wonder, I wonder. Why some are, and, and I’m sure the ones that don’t, their bodies are just beyond repair and they can’t come back to it.
But for those that that do or, or don’t, uh, yeah, it’s, uh, I don’t know if it’s something that we’re ever meant to, meant to know the, that bigger picture, at least here in the, in the human form.
[00:38:53] Jeremiah: Yeah. And another thing I noticed from near death experience is like either the person. Usually the person isn’t like religious at all or is like atheist.
And then they have that experience and now they like believe in like afterlife and stuff. Yeah. Or they’re like super religious and then they’re like more spiritual after the fact instead of religious. So it’s kind of interesting to me. Yeah. From what I, the ones I’ve heard of.
[00:39:21] Laura: Yeah, same here. And for me, very validating too, um, for, for the spiritual path I’ve taken as well.
[00:39:30] Jeremiah: So if someone comes to you and is like, Hey, I’m struggling. I lost this loved one. Can you connect me with them? Or can you let me know they’re okay, or whatever like that? Is that the type of stuff that you can do or, yeah. Or is it more like reading their, uh, energy and stuff
[00:39:48] Laura: like that? Yeah. Yeah.
That’s a good question. So, um, I, a lot of the readings that I do, tend to be ones that work with entities on the other side, spirit guides, , it’s been extraterrestrials, uh, angels, et cetera. Um, but I can also connect with past loved ones as well. And either the person, uh, will ask directly about connecting with their, maybe their dad who passed or something like, Or a lot of the times that I notice in my readings, usually they start off as, or the intention of the reading is that the, the client maybe wants to know, uh, next steps they should take or, um, if they should move or not.
Those kinds of questions kind of more, I would say along the lines of psychic readings. Um, the mediumship reading comes in because it’s when the, when the psychic acts as the vessel of information. , whatever entities on the other side, past loved ones, guides, whatever. So I like to do a lot of that, those kinds of readings, even if it’s like a psychic type of reading to ask about their future or if they, you know, what they can do to better a situation or not.
Um, I’m still tuning into their guides and their teams, so, But one thing that I have found when I do readings for people is they come in, we have the intention of connecting with their guides, and I’m, I do what’s called sitting in the power, kinda like prep before I meet with them and we get on Zoom and, and do it that way.
Um, and I’m sitting there getting into that head space. , that’s usually when I’ll start to pick up on who else is there. And a lot of the times, if it’s a past loved one, and that can include friends, family, even, even pets. Um, but I find that they just, they can’t wait to come in and talk first. And I find that the guides are very patient and let them say what they need to and, and connect with them first, cuz they’re very eager.
Uh, and so, you know, with those times it could be that. Maybe not really expecting to connect with the past loved one, but are pleasantly surprised, um, that that has happened. It happened just recently with a reading, uh, where I was gonna connect. Um, she had some more like psychic questions and, um, as I’m sitting there connecting with her guides and, and, and connecting with her energy, all of a sudden I see a woman standing to her other side and, and I’m like, oh, I’m gonna have to address her.
Because I know she’s not a guide. She’s here for something else, and so we confirm that she was a past, a past loved one, so, , you know, I do find that they, they do really like to speak and come through, uh, as, as much as possible. Most of them, if they were shy, a as humans, they’ll be shy in spirit as well. So sometimes you can kind of see that they’re waiting and, I don’t know, not really lurking, that’s kind of like creepy, but they’re just kind of waiting, , you know, biting their time and being patient.
Um, but uh, but you know, it really can just be, um, that, look, I, I. I lost my, my, my sister or my spouse and I just was wondering if they had any messages for me. And, um, usually that can just really get things going. It’s like, boom, like right away I can just start telling you. And it’s best to do that, that way too.
You don’t wanna stop and think about it as the medium because then you start to doubt and second guess you just wanna say what comes and, and go with it. So,
[00:43:20] Jeremiah: so have you had any. Bad or negative, uh, experiences while you’ve been doing any
[00:43:27] Laura: of this? Good question. Whenever I do readings for people, um, I always make sure that I’m in a space of love.
So anytime I’m connecting to my guides, their guides, anyone from the soul team, I feel that it automatically raises, we call it raise the vibration, right? So it makes it more loving space, uh, and. it, it doesn’t allow for the, um, negativity to come through. Uh, I also like to protect myself and the client kind of put us in this bubble, um, of protection, that only what’s for their highest and best good is allowed to come through.
So when I’m doing those kinds of readings, the answer to that is no. Uh, now have things come through in the readings that maybe are a bit uncom. . Um, yes. So if something still comes through, , even though I’ve put this protection around us, then it’s something that needs to be addressed and talked about. Um, but I will say that I have not yet had anything where it was like, um, you know, like, oh, you’re, you’re cursed or , or, oh, you got a lot of negative energies around you.
Or, or there’s like an evil spirit with you. Like, it’s never anything like that. But when you’re working in that space, of love, you’re, you’re not gonna get those kinds of mm, you, you’re not gonna get n negative ener entities if they exist, negative entities coming through and, and passing messages on and pretending.
And, um, that just, that just doesn’t happen. And when you’re intuitive and you, you learn to listen to your intuition, you can tell, uh, you can tell if it’s something that feels good or not. Um, so luckily, no, uh, but I have had to. , you know, tell people like, oh, you know what? You do feel like things feel like really heavy around you.
You may wanna consider doing this to like get rid of some of that, you know, energy that doesn’t serve you anymore. But that would sort of be the extent of it, especially when it comes to readings. So, yeah,
[00:45:31] Jeremiah: I was just wondering cuz Yeah, it’s like, , you always hear all the good stuff. So sometimes I like to know the bad stuff too.
[00:45:39] Laura: Yeah, no, that’s a very fair question, and actually that’s one that I’ve sort of been dealing with as well and trying to decide and determine what exists and what doesn’t. As far as negativity, I know that everything’s balanced. We have, you know, yin and yang and you know, the, I feel. That, that because of that, then why wouldn’t negative energies exist?
Um, I don’t like to open up to them, so even if they do, I don’t, I don’t like to mess with that. But I have done some crossing overwork, uh, where the entity, mm, I call it entity, but let’s say that the, the, the spirit, um, was very scary looking. Very scary looking. But when I. And I had my guide there with me and when I started to do work with helping the spirit cross over.
that all melted and shedded, shed shedded, it all melted and shed away, uh, to reveal what they really looked like. Uh, so I know that sometimes they can do that to scare us or you know, they just were, they just been in this space of sadness for so long. Maybe it just distorted, like messed with how. Appear.
I mean, I don’t really know, but I have definitely, uh, you know, worked with crossing Over Spear before where, I mean, she gave me, she scared the crap out of me. She looked like the girl from the grudge, like from the ring scared me so much and I was like, okay, what do I do next? ? Luckily it was all virtual, but still this was like, in my mind I’m like, oh, I don’t know if I wanna be here anymore.
But I stuck through with it. I had my angels there. She had her angels there. Like we all, we worked it out. We got. , we got her to where she needed to be. But I mean, to me, if I didn’t go any further, that would’ve been like, oh, that was definitely an evil spirit. But it, and it turned out to actually not be, it was a really sad spirit, very scared spirit who, once we helped to break out of that cycle of, of the, the negative thinking that kept her.
then it was able, she was able to let that go and, and her true self revealed and it was much more pleasant. .
[00:47:55] Jeremiah: Yeah. Yeah, definitely. And I think a lot of stuff, well pretty much everything runs off of like a frequency. So if you’re at a higher frequency, um, then I guess there’s lower frequencies can’t really interfere is what I’m taking.
[00:48:12] Laura: Yeah. Yeah. I feel like that’s kind of, How I, that’s how I see it. That’s why they never come into my readings because it’s a, it’s a space that. , um, just doesn’t allow for it. And I really trust my guides who are there with me when I do those readings to keep that space protected. And they know I rely on them very heavily for that.
Otherwise, I, I’m a scaredy cat. I get way too scared. Like it took me a long time to even wanna do mediumship because I was afraid I’m gonna start seeing ghosts everywhere and who know, who knows what. It’s definitely not like that at all. But I definitely. , I put a lot on my guides to make sure that it was a smooth transition from ready to start practicing to actually doing it and seeing that, oh, this isn’t scary at all.
[00:49:00] Jeremiah: what’s next in your life journey? What, uh, yeah, what’s your next step? Are you trying to learn a new skill or are you just trying to hone what you already have or what’s the next, uh,
[00:49:12] Laura: process? That’s a good question. Um, and I feel like, you know, the, it’s a fair question. Things are always happening. You know, I am very much when it comes to this type of work, I go where my intuition tells me to, because to me, my intuition is my, my guides, my angels, my team.
On the other side, it’s them guiding me cuz I open them. I open up to that. So as of right now, what’s feeling really good is ongoing work with my podcast. So doing that. Interviewing people and them sharing their experiences with work from the other side and and their spiritual journeys and things like that.
And then just recently I started to host a TV show called Life From the Other Side, which is more specific to how. , we are very much connected to the other side and examples of how the other side really helps us in this life. Um, so I have, you know, I’ve, I’ve had mediums on there. Uh, the most recent episode is of a woman who lost a toddler.
Um, and the toddler came back, uh, well came through, uh, through her, through channel writing and they wrote a book together. So that was a really interesting story because. Not spiritual. In fact, she was Mormon and trying to figure that whole thing out. So now she’s, it talk, she talks about that journey as well.
And um, so right now, like tho those things feel really good, like connecting with people and interviewing them and, um, doing work with the podcast and, and the TV show. And if anything were to come next, I will, I will say the inkling to write a second book has started to rear its head, but I just don’t. , I don’t feel ready yet , so I’m suppressing it.
Um, but uh, as far as what happens next, I, I feel like where I’m at right now is, is, is just continuation with the, with the podcast and getting the TV show up and running. So that’s where I’m at.
[00:51:14] Jeremiah: And, uh, for the listener, what, uh, what is your podcast and the TV show as well, in case I want to.
[00:51:22] Laura: Oh sure. So, uh, the podcast is called A Guided Life and it’s on all the major podcasting platforms, apple, Amazon, Spotify, Google, et cetera.
And the TV show is called Life From the Other Side, and it can be found on the Everyday Woman TV channel, which is, um, something you could upload on a smart TV like you would Netflix. So you would just search for the everyday woman tv. Uh, channel and it’s on there under the spirituality category.
[00:51:56] Jeremiah: Nice.
Yeah. Um, and that’s good. Uh, you’re, uh, you’re, you’re using, sorry for whoever’s listening cuz I am in the middle of like a flu, so I’m like not on my game at all, so I can’t talk. Right. You’re such a trooper. I can’t think. Yeah. I’m just, and if I sound kind of nasally, that’s why. Um, but, uh, Yeah, I forget where I was going with that, but It’s okay.
Um, one last thing and then I’ll let you go. You said you were a nurse or whatever. Have you ever used your, like, gifts in the nursing
[00:52:33] Laura: field? Yeah, so, um, yes. So I’m a, I’m a registered nurse and I. Spiritual. I had my first spiritual awakening while I was still in high school. Uh, and then around the time that I, I had what I call spiritual awakening number two, which happened when I started meditating like in end of 2019, middle 2019.
And then the whole thing with energy healing and psychic mediumship in 2020. Uh, I obviously was still a nurse. I still am to this day. Uh, so I, I, what I would start to do before going into work is I would actually meditate in my. , and I didn’t do that before, but I started doing some guided meditations. I just used the calm map and, um, meditate before going into work.
And then I would just open up to any sort of guidance from my guides. Um, Any sort of support, communication that they wanted to gimme throughout the day. And what that, what that would do is that I find that I’m able to come up with solutions for any sort of situations or issues that may come up in work, uh, that maybe were a little bit beyond my own capability, I suppose.
Uh, but I found that I was able to start to come up with solutions, um, because I was op, I opened up my intuition. To receiving that communication and any, any sort of assistance from my, from my team. Um, it also has helped me to, being on a spiritual journey has helped me to see people in a different way, patients, coworkers.
Um, as far as, you know, they’re on their journeys too, and it’s kind of incredible considering how many lives we’ve had and how people are always coming and going into this life and the next, and we’re just sort of this, it’s like a, this well-oiled machine. It’s pretty incredible that even Jeremiah, you and I just having this conversation at this time, in this time, in our.
You know, to, to think that this was definitely something that we planned before coming into this life, and here we are having this conversation. I mean, the chances of that happening are, I think are, are so incredible when you look at the grand scheme of things. And so it just helps you to realize that people are on their own journeys.
You know, they’ve lived so many lives before and they’re working through whatever it is they need, they need to in this life. You know, working with their guides or, well, hopefully working with their guides as well. And I think it just give, it just gave me this bigger perspective that I though, again, was spiritual before, uh, just really once I.
Went into spiritual awakening number two, just really had, uh, uh, this greater understanding and this greater love for the people that I work with, um, patients again and, and coworkers. So I think it just really helped to, for me, make work a more enjoyable place. Not that it wasn’t before, but with that different perspective, it was really actually great to be around other people.
I’m definitely an introvert, so I definitely like my alone time too, but . I don’t know. It just was, it was nice to have a different perspective when it came to working with people and then also to know that my guides were there to help me in making the right decisions when I needed that extra guidance.
[00:55:54] Jeremiah: Yeah, that sounds good. I was just wondering cuz like, yeah, you know, you always think nurse, they like to help. They like to, yeah. You know, heal people. So we do, um, . . Yeah. My, uh, wife’s daughter is a rn, so.
[00:56:10] Laura: Oh, really? Yeah. Oh, that’s fantastic.
[00:56:13] Jeremiah: She works at like a doctor’s office, but yeah, I think she wanted to do like the prenatal or the Oh, whatever the baby nurses are
Yeah, , yeah. And uh, but then she was like, nah, I can’t do this. I
[00:56:26] Laura: can’t handle this. Uh, it can be hard. Yeah, it could be hard. Takes a special nurse to. every specialty. . Yeah,
[00:56:35] Jeremiah: definitely. But it’s good that you guys are out there and Yeah. Uh, the world needs you for sure. I know.
[00:56:41] Laura: Yeah. Well, I think the world, but we’re working on it.
[00:56:46] Jeremiah: Yeah. I think the world needs everybody and it needs everyone to live up to their potential too. , um mm-hmm. . I always feel sad when I see people like wasting their life away like, yeah. You know, addicted to drugs or, or alcohol or, you know, whatever. Mm-hmm. , whatever’s keeping ’em down. . Mm-hmm. .
[00:57:08] Laura: Yeah. Don’t get it.
Don’t get another chance. .
[00:57:11] Jeremiah: Yeah. When they cycle back through. Exactly. .
[00:57:17] Laura: Yeah. Yeah. Their guys are very patient with them. So, but
[00:57:20] Jeremiah: then again, maybe that was. You know, destination. Maybe that was their experience.
[00:57:25] Laura: So true, Jeremiah, because think about how it may impact others, you know, to maybe wanna be better or to want to help others to prevent that from happening to others.
I mean, everything has its place. You’re right. So it’s just could be hard to fathom. .
[00:57:42] Jeremiah: Yeah, I think everything’s interconnected. Mm-hmm. , I totally believe there’s a purpose that we’re here. There’s a reason we’re here. Mm-hmm. . Um, I still don’t know my reason, but I’m figuring it out. I guess as I go, , , I’m just trying to be the best me that I can be and, but yeah.
Thank you for coming on and sharing your experiences and your stories and um, hopefully it’ll touch somebody and change their.
[00:58:09] Laura: Yeah. Thank you so much for this opportunity, Jeremiah. Really appreciate you. Thank you. Yeah, thank you.
