Is an inside job. It is true. However, at this point and time, I am tired.
I get the feeling that a lot of you are tired as well. It’s the daily grind – working to pay bills only to find those oh so precious moments to spend with family and friends far and few in-between and at times those moments are off the charts.
The dollar just is not stretching like it once did. This is by far not meant to be a political blog. I do catch up on things here and there, not too often though because it’s an inside job, happiness.
Backstory: I took a sociology course more than 20 years ago in college. We had this huge discussion as to why people like you and I do not do anything to make change. It was decided that one of the biggest issues was the daily grind, that people do not have time to revolt so to speak.
These days I wonder what the alignments of the planets are and how this could be affecting my daily life. I can hear some of you saying, ‘I do that or say that.’ Outside influences are huge – news, work, family, government, society, culture, etc.
With a Clairsentient or Empath, chaos is just felt. We all have gifts to some extent. Tuning into this big, wide world is most times not warranted. At times, the emotions of the collective are intense, hard not to feel them.
Living in your own bubble is not wrong. It’s a must to protect yourself from those outside influences.
Best to go with the flow, though, in this thing called life. Make a list of what can help lighten your load and do more of that.
I have this friend and when we chat, we always end up laughing. Laughter surely raises your vibration. Helping others is a happy place for me; on the downside it can be draining if I do too much. The beach is a happy place for me. I download unwanted energies as I walk, but then situations creep in and eventually bring the left brain into the thought process.
Looking at social media, I have worked diligently to raise the views of daily posts. I just want to uplift people, bring people to inner healing. Once I started gaining momentum, say 300 views on each video on average and more on others, it wasn’t long, and I tanked to 110 or a bit more for weeks and weeks. It’s the algorithm alright. Ha.
It’s always been good vs less than good.
Bottom Line: Duality exists in everything you can think of. And yes, we get to choose where we live inside of ourselves. We have good days and less than good days.
If you are having a less than good day, allow it. You get to have those days or moments. Don’t beat yourself up for having those feelings. Allow the feeling to be. Evaluate as to why you are feeling this way. Make a change.
I’m still waiting for nonduality in a lot of ways. Think about it – just being.
P.S. At times, I feel I repeat myself in blogs. It takes varying amounts of exposure to learn a new concept and to accept it into one’s life. This includes me.
We all have the gifts – Clairvoyance (seeing), feeling, knowing, hearing, tasting and smelling. We have them all at varying degrees, although one is normally stronger than the others.
Some gifts are dormant. Perhaps, this time around you are not supposed to use your gifts for your life journey. However, not using or accepting your gifts is perplexing to me. Why wouldn’t someone use their sixth senses to assist oneself or to assist others?
Answer these questions: Have you heard your name called, looked to see where it came from only to find no one there? Have you seen something out of the corner of your eye, looked and discovered nothing there? Women out there and some men: Have you ever had a gut feeling about your children, or anything else?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you have the gifts. Yes, it’s easy to try to explain your gifts away – it’s whatever fits in your box and helps you to continue. However, when signs keep occurring, it may be time for the unfoldment of your gifts. That time comes eventually for everyone.
Most times people really don’t know how to utilize their gifts, so they do not reach their full potential. Some people come to me for readings to get answers. To start, admit that you have gifts. Now get to class.
I am starting online Intuition Development classes for beginners, intermediate and advanced students in September. Shoot me an email pronto at LoriCarter@aol.com for more information.
In addition, starting a daily meditation practice is needed. At least 20 minutes daily will assist. Always set an intention as to what you would like to see happen in your meditation – meeting your guides, growing your gifts, receiving body/mind/spirit healing to name a few.
Just hanging out with classmates is a positive thing for you. Being around like-minded people will assist in your confidence and allow you to own who you are, a person with gifts.
I get that some people have natural abilities; however, training to include ethics is a must.
If you are unable to attend my online classes, please look for other classes where you reside. You will know if you’re in the right place. If it feels iffy, excuse yourself and look for another teacher.
Your teacher will appear when you put the intention out to grow. Same as students will appear when the teacher puts the call out.
Many Blessings of Peace and Love!
P.S. This is blog number 333, which means it's time for expansion.
Just breathe. I find I have been telling myself that more and more.
Sometimes, I just don’t like people. You too?
The other day at the gym I was finishing up my cardio and I hacked a couple of times. This older man, who was 20 feet away and off to the side, looked at me like I was the devil incarnate. I said I had bronchitis and took my medicine, noting that I was no longer contagious. He snubbed his nose and looked the other way. I’m like OK. A few moments later he got up from the machine and walked away. He didn’t even wipe it down; hence as to why I do it before I get onto a machine.
As I continued the elliptical, I thought you don’t know where he came from and what his story is. It’s what I think of when I want to judge someone even if I have just been judged myself.
Backstory: About 10 years ago a teacher in Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp gave me a T-shirt. It was black and had white stick figures on it symbolizing people – one was discombobulated on the ground. The shirt read: ‘Doesn’t Play Well With Others.’
It’s because I don’t play the game. I don’t play games. I never have. It’s not who I am. Perhaps, it’s because I’ve been self-employed since 1997 – first as a freelance writer and now as a psychic medium. Even when I did have jobs, I wouldn’t put up with nonsense. I’d do my job and go home. I was never one to ‘look busy.’ I just did.
So, when people do not tell the truth, think I’m going to be part of whatever story they concocted, or when people continue to show their colors – their way is the only way, and if you disagree with their thought process, or give solutions to possible situations that may arise around an idea, you now become a threat to their very existence.
Wishy-washy does not work for me either. Say what you mean. Maybe, people just don’t really know who they are anymore with all the hats that are worn. Or maybe they would rather eat their words than stand for what they believe. It’s really all about the root chakra – what was learned and accepted regarding family, society and culture.
Finally, the best thing one can do is to remove oneself from the situation. People do change. I believe they can. However, some people never change. It’s best to not go back for seconds and for sure not thirds.
Yes, send love and light to the person. Wish them no harm. Disengage. Find your tribe!
Breathe, Just Breathe
Is awesome. I had been feeling a bit under the weather as of late. You know, my grandson is in daycare and had snots running out of his eyes, poor little guy. Me, a bit of a hack, bronchitis.
Anywho, my go to is Cheerios, milk and sugar. It makes me feel better. I spied the milk in my daughter’s office refrigerator the other day. I hoped it was still good. And a brand-new box of Cheerios was on the counter. It was coming together. Fake sugar would work, but then I thought of a friend upstairs. Sugar it is.
I love how the community came together to help me feel better.
In the past, I have written about macro and micro – whatever happens at the highest-level dribbles down to the community, or neighborhood, eventually. It is true. What about the opposite occurring? Perhaps, this is how community becomes more than the daily grind. I like the feel of that eutopia. Start small and build with energy. Remember, everything is energy.
Here’s a good one: Macro is Destiny and Micro is Free Will.
Community these days is so much more – social media brings a slew of people to your front door. I dabbled years ago. It just wasn’t me. Eventually, I dove in with a website, FromTheEthers.com to include a weekly blog, a YouTube Channel, From the Ethers, Instagram, TikTok, both LoriCarterMedium, Twitter and LinkedIn, both Lori Carter. I paid someone to assist for several months. It just wasn’t my voice.
Once I really got going with it, I now started receiving messages to talk with people – ‘Hi, good looking’ or ‘Hi, gorgeous’ and I’m thinking nice. These people don’t even know me and are talking to me like I should. I have learned to ignore.
My daughter asked recently how I was going to meet someone if I didn’t talk with them. Really? I tried dating sites only to find that most people really didn’t exist. My response always: ‘They know I’m a Spiritualist Medium and they know how to find me.’
I’ve decided that I might chat occasionally if I have time. It might not hurt to become friendly with people who reach out. Perhaps, I can have a community of real friends online.
The situation: I won’t be getting cereal there. However, I might just get friendships that are truly desired.
We all exist in various dimensions at one time. I’ve heard it and have wondered about this for many years. I believe it on some level.
Talking with my woo-woo friend the other day, I said that I might have to sage around the building again. She laughed and said when she walked down toward Colby Memorial Temple the other day, she saw me in the etheric with my sage walking around the building. She said my energy was already there doing it. I love it!
Backstory: A couple of years ago I had a dream that there was a plane crash. I saw it as a cartoon. The plane sputtered and took a nosedive. I thought I needed to help these people. Next thing I know I see people walking away from the crash site. I didn’t think too much of it until I saw first thing in the morning that there was a military plane that crashed, and everyone survived. Wow, right?
A couple of days later I told another woo-woo friend about my dream. She said to me, ‘How do you know that you didn’t help those people on another plane of existence.’ Now there’s something to ponder. You know what? Maybe she’s correct. Perhaps, I did.
Dreams are a biggie – there’s everyday dreams and psychic dreams. It’s easy to differentiate. I always say that it’s good to keep a dream journal with the date, so when something occurs in the 3D world, perhaps déjà vu, you can look back to see when you had the dream.
You say you don’t remember your dreams? Stop saying that. You won’t. Say a prayer at night asking to remember your dreams when you awaken. We all dream nightly.
Start working with your guides asking them to show you things say six months out, and when you get good with that time frame, ask them to shorten the time to maybe two months out. It’s whatever time you want to work with.
Do we truly exist in different dimensions at one time? Why not? I believe anything is possible.
I wonder if I really need to sage around the building. I’m gonna say no for now since I’ve been seen doing it.
