Reflecting between the LINES
By Lori Lines
Life on Earth is shaking everything down and shifting. Big time. Why? Because we are shifting individually. Individual shifts ripple out to shift the collective. One thing I've become very clear about is that my intention, through my work, is to help people connect within, to their innermost selves. Their soul. Their true hearts desire. WHO THEY ARE. To inspire others to live from that place, within themselves, that is true and authentic, which is the marriage between the heart and the head.
Just as I have been learning to do all my life, this is the path I am walking, which is unfolding before me in each moment, from the soul rather than attempting to force life from a wounded and fearful place. It is beautiful and intense and I wouldn't change my path for the world because this is why I'm here: To empower other people to do the same.
Those who come to me looking for the more mundane answers which keep one stuck in old patterns and the past such as, "will she come back to me and will we ultimately be together?" "When will my career take off?" "Who is my soulmate?" "Should I be with this one or that one?" "Will my marriage last?" "When will I have children?" And, the proverbial, "What's the lottery numbers?" It's very challenging for an AWAKENED psychic to support this thinking in their work. Sure, I can answer some of these questions, and I will be happy to do so but most who have these sort of questions have not yet awakened to who they really are.
Many of you have heard me say, "You are the one you are looking for." YOU ARE THE ONE and, if you remember nothing else, remember this: The love from another comes in harmony with the love that you realize you are. It's a question of how committed are you to your own path? How committed are you to being who you really are? My mission, who I really am, is to want for you to know who you really are, and that is love. You are LOVE. And, the sooner you recognize this, the better off you will BE. THAT comes first. So, learn to BE with yourself in any moment, being love, being willing to dig deep within yourself and live in your complete surrender, faith and truth, in the moment.
So, in these times, I want to convey to you that you have no control over outward circumstances, you cannot force anything and, let me tell you, if you think you are in control you are living an illusion. Destiny has its own unfolding and where you can exert your will is how you choose to perceive it and move through it. How you perceive what is in front of you will make all the difference in your life. Again, I will ask, how committed are you to being who you are in this moment? How committed are you to making the best of right where you are, right now? Also, if you KNOW something in your heart, do not allow someone else to talk you out of what's in your heart. Just let it be, do not hold onto it too tightly, but know it's there for a reason. You cannot control cycles of destiny but you can choose who and how to be during these times.
There have been cycles of shedding and purging for most of us. There are layers to this, in and of itself. For those of you who are carrying predominantly masculine energy (we all carry feminine and masculine energy within ourselves) and you are wanting that great love, you must find that love within yourself. Any need for control and any need to rationalize things...the shift that's happening for the masculine energy dominating the planet and suppressing the heart, emotions and the soul, are bigger than the mind can ever comprehend - which is extraordinary and beautiful and, well, messy.
The mind must become the servant of the heart and that means letting go of control. Surrender this cycle and just enjoy the ride by staying present within it. You do not have to KNOW what is going to happen and stand in defensive alert. These warlike energies have been within you for eons (many past lives) and you are now being called to put down those defenses. Part of the shedding for the masculine that wants to "figure out the heart with the mind" is now happening in the collective. Your hearts are asking to lead you through the veil of the unknown. It is understandable to want safety in the attempt to understand things, yet, a greater experience in love is on the other side of surrender.
What I see in this is the collective masculine saying, "OK, the way I've been doing life in the past no longer works so I'm going to do this" to one degree or another.
For eons, the masculine and the feminine have been at odds with one another, collectively. Our society has supported this and actually makes tons of money from the perpetuation of this paradigm. Now, the masculine is being called to merge with his feminine, within himself, so as to unionize with the collective feminine. His masculinity has a very important role to the feminine (as so does she to him). And, for those of you asking, this is not going to take away your manhood. It will help you be stronger within your SELF! Because, let's face it, you guys have been in identity crisis for a long time. When we let go of the need to control and learn to understand that which is greater than us (call it God, the Universe, the Divine, etc.) then we can enter into service of THE GREAT LOVE. That which is bigger than us. It's an expansion that's happening that merges us with the great love by moving into our individual hearts.
A lot of times, we want the comfort of knowing what's going to happen. Especially if we have felt our hearts have been broken, we have attempted to protect ourselves from feeling like we've had swords through our hearts. This journey is asking us to pull the swords out of our hearts and to allow our hearts to bleed. The loss of blood allows room for the light. There is no way out but through this journey. If you feel the call from your heart, from something bigger than you are, then you have to commit to the heart. Should pain come, let it be and allow the heart to break open instead of attempting to patch it together with your distractions. When we resist and struggle, in this way, we just bring on more pain within ourselves. If you have swords in your heart, you are encouraged to take those swords out, and just go through the experience because it is in the experience that you will heal and become much stronger in love and more of who you really are. Your foundation will become more solidly based. When we do not allow this experience, we are distracting ourselves from who we are and our experience of true love.
So, for both the masculine and the feminine, where is your integrity? Do you choose to stand in your inner knowing? Do you choose to defend your experience and your knowledge of love? Or, do you choose to compromise? You are asked to really examine, whether you are being fair in all ways especially to yourself. There are many of you out there who, partly because you're trying to figure things out with your mind and things may or may not be working out for you and those you love, are cautioned to check in with your integrity. You are being strongly encouraged to check in with what you really know and what you really believe and to only have the purest intentions in terms of who you are with. If your heart knows one thing and you are choosing to be with someone else, it's not fair to anyone and it erodes the psyche. It delays personal growth and your own happiness. One must have the patience to allow the heart to lead and to ride out the dilemma while feeling out your integrity. The heart, the knowing within, will get you where you want to go. We are encouraged to get courageous enough to move into radical honesty. What is your heart telling you?
The harmonizing with the masculine and the feminine is the realization that the broken heart opening is the path to freedom. Allowing the heart to break open and to allow yourself to heal is the commitment to the faith that you are on the path to BEING THE LOVE HERE ON EARTH. We cannot run from something that we think may break our hearts, for the willingness to risk heartbreak is the willingness to be alive and to feel deeply and to be opened more powerfully to a stronger lasting love. Needing to know the exact map of the journey, is where we get into trouble. Not knowing and being in the now allows life to open us up to all we desire and it comes in incredible and remarkable ways.
The Divine is shaking everything up. We need to be looking at how we have operated in the past and to understand how it will no longer work. We are seeing how we've been lying to ourselves. So the question begs, what are you going to do now?
The commitment to understanding who you are, through the path of love, is the key to creating a new world where we all are supported and nurtured in an authentic way. It's called Unity.
By allowing our need to control (our egos) to die and moving into the unknown, surrendering to the path of the heart, is creating something beautiful. It already is.
May peace, love, and blessings be with you on your journey to oneness.

Many of you are brave enough to purge old wounds that have been embedded in your being for eons - those wounds and negative emotions that have weighed you down, keeping you stuck with little to no realization of what your heart truly desires.
For most of you, it's been a really rough few months with these energy shifts that have felt so compressed. So, the purging most of you have been doing has been increasingly intense with revelations about past life occurrences, revelations about the now, and there's been a lot of triggering on a subconscious level. It's almost as if we've had soul fragmentations of emotions and thoughts that have been scattered about, which are coming up to acknowledge, process, purge and to clear through transmutation. This process is making itself known in order for us to reach a sense of wholeness, in general.
Purging is not easy. Many of you have been bringing up what has been embedded, hidden and repressed within your being for eons. For those of you who do intentional clearing, are the bravest in my opinion. The emotions and memories that have been coming up has been even more intense for most of you. Not only are you going through the current planetary alignment energy shifts, but you are also going through the intentional releasing. This makes it all the more challenging.
As this third and final wave of the Dark Night of the Soul enshrouds us, there are a lot of you who are newly awakening who are very raw and tender. When we are raw and tender, we seem to get stuck in the pain of our minds looping though the wrong questions of "why?" This is the victimhood I liken to pouring salt into the wound, without relief. On the other hand, some will divert their attention from the rawness by acquiescing to their addictions of distractions, which prolong the pain anyway.
It is an important time in our evolution. It is an important time to purge. Purging manifests when emotions bubble up as fear, insecurity, hate, anger, crying, etc. But these emotions are bubbling up for a reason - to be released. I am shown that we do, by the grace of the Divine, have support.
It is important that we seek and ask for Divine Intervention and Divine Guidance. Do not underestimate your petitions to the Divine because when you ask for it, with good intentions, you WILL BE ANSWERED. It does not matter what the experience is or what you ask is. You will be answered.
These last few months have been very intense where it's gotten down to the real, causal stuff. It's not been about the, more superficial, ego purging and taking stock in our tearful temper tantrums for not having things our way. It's been soul wrenching, deeply rooted and embedded emotions surrounding wounds from our past lives and the wounds of our current lifetime coming up to release, once and for all.
When you find this happening, seek the Divine. Ask the Divine for what needs to be cleared to be shown to you - to bring the experiences to you to help you learn - so that you can get to the other side, more quickly. Ask to be allowed to clear the heavier things that are embedded in your psyche and spirit, now, so that you can get it done and move forward. Ask if there's anything or anyone in your life who is obstructing the clear view of your life mission, in the alignment of who you are, to be removed. Ask for the right people and the right influences to come into your life to help you realize your true self, your true happiness, your true love, your true abundance, your true joy.
Keep in mind that we get what we wish for, so be prepared. Keep in mind that if you ask to be shown the obstacles to your true calling, to reach your full potential, you must be prepared to embrace and to accept what you are shown. It is also important to be prepared to hold space and spend time alone to do any heavy purging so as to not contaminate another (who, by the way, is doing their own purging).
I see a lot of people who complain about not getting what they want fast enough. And, when the purging comes, they don't really embrace and allow it to happen. Because it's painful and not fun. The only way is through this. We all incarnated into this lifetime to cleanse and purge in order to find our true selves, our true love, our happiness, our joy, our abundance. Trust that all the emotions that come up are there for acknowledging and purging and keep in mind that it is your human nature to want what your heart desires. So, realize and understand it is part of life to do this work to be energetically and emotionally healthy and get to the other side.

Because of what I do, many people seek me out for guidance, advice, and readings. I have had to learn, the hard way and from my own karmic lessons, that I am not supposed to do this work for free.
The work I do is in partnership with my Creator and its various messengers and healers of light on varying levels of celestial existence. Because of my own Karmic contract to be in service I have gained a tremendous amount of wisdom, education, and lessons in truth and true compassion for humanity and I've been directed, by my own Guidance, to no longer do my work for free as it's been determined that most people do not value it when I have done so in the past. I have found there are many unawakened people out there who are attracted to light workers to complain and to gain compassion and validation for their woes, yet they are uninterested in taking responsibility for any action to better their circumstances.
The reason most people come to me to complain and tell me their story is because they are supposed to schedule an appointment with me so that we can have a session together. It is inappropriate to just come to me and complain.
I am an authentic empath, medium, clairvoyant, healer, etc. I do not use physical tools that I read. I am using my Universal connection on the clients behalf. And, when I am in a session with a client, what may seem like just having an easy conversation, in reality, is me investing a lot of time and healing energy while providing practical and spiritual guidance for my clients' highest good. In a session, my mind, body, and energy are engaged in a merged hypersensitivity, on many levels at the same time, meeting the client where they are while connecting with spirit to gain and communicate truth, as best as humanly possible, makes me good at what I do.
Those who come to me, or any other light worker for that matter, to complain is holding themselves in a place of powerlessness by complaining and not being willing to move themselves forward. The act of complaining keeps us stuck in the past. Granted, many do not know how to shift their energy to move forward in an authentic way, therefore, one must be willing to invest in themselves as an affirmation to their higher self that they are willing to participate in their own self-healing by acknowledging, healing, and letting go in order to move forward. Sometimes, it takes a light worker to help one make that shift.
It is part of my own karma to receive proper compensation for the intense work that I do so that I may pay my own bills. Believe me when I say I do not do this work to get rich. The intensity of my work requires me to spend copious amounts of down time in order to cleanse and rejuvenate my own spirit to be of service to my clients. It's a sincere calling keeping me brimming with desire to serve and I will continue to do this work as I feel called to do so.
My in-person rates are set by my team in the Spirit realm and are subject to change when I'm instructed to do so.
In addition, when a client cannot see me in person due to distance, I am available on 12listen.com as an advisor. The reason I work there is because it is a safe space for the client to remain anonymous if they choose to be so while gaining the same quality service that I offer to my in-person, local clients.
May peace be with you,

Divine Soul connections (Soul Mates, Twin Flames) of all shapes and sizes have assisted in breaking down barriers to soul truth and love. Everything we've built up to provide for our comfort zones, that is not in alignment with our soul truths have begun to fall away.
Higher vibrations cannot co-exist with the lower vibrations. We are now experiencing this clash. It's only a matter of time before our higher vibration comes in to stay, creating new beginnings, rapidly. Ultimately, this is for our highest good. We are aligning ourselves to the higher vibration of love from the inside-out.
Monumental change must occur within, first, for it to manifest in the physical reality. This clash can be a frightening time but know all structures within must change and grow for them to change without.
The ground is leveling. Difficulties on our individual paths will transform as Divinely Inspired relationships heal and expand throughout the collective so as to ground the higher vibrations onto the earth grid for ultimate unity to take hold.
It is time to take positive action toward your goals and your dreams. Make sure your attitudes and your beliefs are in alignment with what you already have thought you want to accomplish. Release what no longer fits into the puzzle of what you want to accomplish as it will begin to feel like dead weight.
Writing down the limiting beliefs you've discovered, within you, helps to release this out of your be-ing and puts it in a concrete language for you to better understand. Then, work on letting them go.

Hope is the cherished desire of some kind of obtainment and, to me, implies just this. Desire. The more we "desire" we are in the space of "wanting" which tells the Universe we do not have what we "want." We step out of the space of co-creating WITH our Creator into a space of victimhood and waiting for that thing or circumstance to change - our minds looking out at something into the future, missing the NOW opportunities that lie before us at any given moment. Therefore, it keeps what we want in a suspended animation. It keeps us stuck in the abyss of WANT where we see nothing changing for or with us in our physical realm.
If we are able to think about what we want, then it is already done. The key is to break down the barriers, within us, to achieving that which we desire. If we connect to the present moment, within ourselves, break down the barriers, within, by releasing the fears and illusions we've created to obtaining what we want, rather than projecting those fears and illusions into the future with "hope," the Universe will conspire to make it happen.
Projection into the future only creates the barrier and, since everything is energy, that invisible barrier keeps what we want from manifesting into our present moment. In other words, think it within your own head, let it go, and then turn your attention inward to recognize the fears, the illusions, the negative thought patterns, the self-sabotaging behaviors and break them down. Then open your eyes to see all you've attracted. And, by all means, give gratitude for what you already have created every day.

When placing blame on another, ask yourself how this is a reflection of you. How are you, deep down, judging yourself?
Within any relationship, energy vampires judge and blame others to keep us off balance (pushing the buttons of the belief we are unworthy) in order to impose their will and control. The ego likes to blame and project onto others. If your self-esteem has become low because of the judging and blaming of another, you are with an energy vampire who is trying to control you.
The energy vampire distracts themselves by focusing on you and wanting YOU to change, because they are not aware of how they need to change by providing love and stability for themselves. So, someone who is being critical and judgmental is just projecting the fact that they are internally being self judgmental and critical.
Take nothing personally by recognizing the deeper deception they are doing within themselves. Before you can heal others, you have to heal yourself. This is a situation that cannot be healed unless you heal yourself.
