Reflecting between the LINES

People ask me if what I see, feel and hear is real and the biggest question I get most of the time is, "how do you know if what you see, feel, hear and communicate is benevolent and not malevolent?" Albeit long, my answer is this: I have a lot of years under by belt consciously communicating with benevolent and not so benevolent beings. I walk in communication all the time. I have received, personally, an extraordinary amount of validation from my channeling that I trust my intuition probably more than at least 50% of our population. With this said, I have also come across beings who have attempted to fake me out, sometimes, successfully. It's been years of a learning curve for me and I perceive those times as tests for my worthiness to be of service to those whom I can assist.
These tests have shown me the differences in the frequencies they hold in regard to hearing, seeing, and feeling them. Frequencies are in EVERYTHING - people, disincarnate spirits, furniture, electronics, situations, that which is projected from radio, TV, Facebook, etc.
So, I say, to each his own. Everyone has a belief system and each belief system has its own frequency...in and of itself. We are attracted to that which resonates with our own frequency until that frequency gains enough experience of itself to move higher. Sometimes that frequency can be too much so we get knocked "down a peg or two" (tested) to experience more so we can expand and grow.
Beliefs are an interesting thing. For me, underlying intentions and agendas are greatly important in factoring degrees of benevolence and malevolence. Fear is a powerful motivator. Obviously the original question is derived from an element in their frequency that holds fear.
And, when people do not understand the unknown, people can demonize anything to a particular mindset. The ego is fear and it is a process of facing that and relinquishing it, is when the light emerges and the fear is cleared.
My advice to those who want it is to question everything but look within to see where the questions stem from. When all the noise of the questions are silenced through love and forgiveness, it is then you are standing in faith that the Universe has your back and you ARE BENEVOLENT.

Suffering is an internal and subjective experience, and the external circumstances mean very little in producing it. My life has been filled with privileges and blessings. Also, I have never suffered from any acute, life-threatening traumas that others have, and still endure all over the world. So I consider myself extremely blessed and suffering is a gift within a larger gift: my life. That being said, I've felt physical pain and, for much of my life, emotional pain. So, whenever it appears, I am reminded of the need for acceptance. It provides a great metaphor, actually. The more I resist the pain the more stress I cause, and the more pain I create for myself. When at last I accept and concede to it, without resistance or the need to fix it, I feel the pain fade away and I relax. It is literally effortless (as effort is the only thing to avoid).
The power is in the patient, loving awareness which is focused and intensified just like what a magnifying lens will do with sunlight (only I'm burning through my pain, not ants.)
This is truly how it's been with suffering for me.

I hear many questions from you along these lines, "if I allow myself to feel all the negative feelings from my past (lives) that have hurt me or made me feel stuck, won't I be lowering my vibration?"
Here's my take on it. Many of you hear, from the law of attraction community, messages to stay positive and keep your thoughts high! I think this talk creates the fear of doing things wrong when we are feeling sub-par. It creates the worry that if you ever have a negative thought that what you want won't materialize or be actualized. I think this is B.S. Nothing will keep you stuck longer than the act of worry caused by fear!
We are obviously striving to raise our vibrational frequencies so that we can be naturally more joyous, happy, and in love. It is unrealistic to think you can keep your thoughts high ALL THE TIME. We are here on Earth to experience her polarities: light/dark, love/fear, left/right, above/below, hard/soft, etc. so that we can appreciate and express gratitude for the love, the light, the joy, the happiness, those days when everything seems to flow in our favor.
We are here to learn how to merge these polarities.
Do not allow yourself to deny those parts of yourself. As an empath, it's painful to watch someone smile when they are hurting, to hear someone say they are doing great when you know they are struggling inside. To watch someone act in martyrdom. This is not authentic. We would not be given the ability to cry if we weren't meant to do that. We have not been given a voice if we weren't meant to communicate our soul truth at any given time. Giving yourself permission to express your pain ultimately removes the debris you've held on to and once it clears, you will be given clarity in your life like never before! It brings you back in to balance. It helps you to open your heart and to create from that positive space.
When I have given myself permission to FEEL, to release and purge, I've found levels of forgiveness, of myself and others who have hurt me, in ways I never thought I could. The result? True compassion for myself and others, a lightness, a spring-in-my-step.
Going deeper, once that level of compassion is realized, you can find the compassion for others and yourself when your perceptual filters begin to fall away and you realize how you have hurt them. This expanded perception allows you to see and to feel and to cry for the others you have wounded, perhaps without even knowing you had wounded them in the past. This gives you the opportunity for complete and ultimate forgiveness, thus, you have merged the polarities and you have risen to a higher vibrational frequency. You UNDERSTAND.
Still walking with you as we see the light on the other side emerging.
Peace out, Lori <3

We are moving into a new paradigm in love relationships.
Many who are stuck in ego, at this time, may find this article offensive to their beliefs and, therefore, may anger some for it may challenge your current relationship belief as it is right now. However, this is a mindset of control and we are moving into a time where control will no longer hold us hostage. We are awakening to the fact that love is freedom and anything that restricts or withholds us is not love.
Since our highest desire is always love, we are moving in that direction. Many of us have incarnated onto Earth at this time, as human beings, to learn and to experience what unconditional love really is. We see these experiences in people awakening to the presence of their true soul mates and twin flames. In our generation and generations of the past, what we thought was love was really attachments based on fears, illusions, and a lot of pain and suffering rather than the experience of love in Source energy of the spirit.
Source love, the holy trinity, is an unbounded, free and infinite energy of unconditional love.
I foresee the new institution of marriage to be a commitment to unconditional love (love of the self and love of all others) rather than a projection of only loving the other, possessing the other, that is legal and limiting in its beliefs. These limiting beliefs set up an energy implying a lack of trust in self and the other and, therefore, is not built on a solid foundation of love but rather a crumbling foundation born of separation, that is not love. It is a 3D fear- based love programming where there are marriage contracts based on ownership, co-dependency and contracts " 'til death do us part" and "...in sickness and in health." This mindset perpetuates itself and creates negative Karma. It becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy where separation has to take place on some level because these are contracts based on fear and not unconditional love. The only way to rise above this level of karma is to rise above it in climbing to further unconditional love.
With the new relationship paradigm that many are beginning to actually live, there will be no need to keep one "in line" through adhering to the old limiting framework because there will just be love and as long as the love is there, there will be union out of every day choice. When both parties are standing in their love energy (that commitment to unconditionally love themselves and others), they are a vibrational match and it is the energy of love that can be trusted. True love is light. Continuously standing and holding that space will not allow the darkness of deceit, manipulation, or control into the union. As humanity ascends, our light bodies will not be able to withstand the weight of the darkness of deceit, manipulation, codependency, LIMITS.
So, when two partners commit to unconditional love, nothing outside of that can penetrate it. It is a solid foundation, when left to breathe, in itself. It is a commitment from both parties to stay in awareness of their own individual shadow sides that, once these sides are faced, embraced, loved - then that which has obstructed love between you, dissolves when the love becomes deeper, more expanded and unconditional. It is Divinely protected and Divinely inspired because its frequency is so high that true happiness will reign.

Many times when you are moving to a significantly higher ascension level you will find you have to let people go from your life who are no longer moving in the same direction beside you. Just like one of my earlier posts suggests, you needed that person (or those people) to walk beside you on your journey to help teach you something or to help you heal something within. Once you've completed your karma with them, you will know because they will no longer seem to have anything in common with you or you no longer see things in the same way as they do. Sometimes, no matter how hard you both try, it still doesn't work out to anyone's satisfaction. When this happens, we allow ourselves to get mired in feelings of low self-worth, judging ourselves as "failures." Of course, this is an illusion that our society has set up for us to believe. But, in reality, you have just completed something that you were meant to complete and now it's time to move forward. In other words, you are changing your vibrational frequency and they are no longer on your radio station.
Some of us go into denial when we stay in relationships too long. Often, I have seen in cases such as this, when the relationship begins to get very toxic to both parties and real damage can be done to one's health and well-being. These are relationships in which we are not meant to stay because we've probably outgrown them, in one way or another, and this causes more karmic pain to build up for both parties. Or, sometimes, the inherent foundation of the relationship needs to change, for example, you could have been romantically involved with someone and, when you both no longer felt the same way about each other, you can change the foundation of the relationship to a platonic friendship. There are many reasons we are drawn to certain people in our lives, only to realize it has served its purpose for one reason or another.
The best way to handle these situations to mitigate your karma is to:
1.) ACKNOWLEDGE and sit still in the uncomfortableness of the situation - feel it fully. That tightness in your heart or that sick feeling in your stomach or that fogginess in your brain is a message that stuck energy is getting ready to purge itself. This is where most people reach for their addictions. They don't want to accept the reality of WHAT IS and so they numb the feelings with sex, drugs, alcohol, food, work, exercise, etc. It's obviously best not to reach for your addictions and to face WHAT IS NOW.
2.) EVALUATE yourself. Who were you when you began this relationship? How much have you grown and how far have you come? What have you been through with this person in your life? Where were you when you met? Were you angry and vulnerable? Were you sad? Perhaps this is where they were, too, and they are still stuck in that but you've moved on. On what foundation was this relationship built? How did this relationship help you? And, how is this association hindering you now? Do you get sad or angry when you see them? Do you feel anxious? Drained? Take your time with this one. You might want to meditate on these questions, and more, and just see what answers bubble up from within you. To help you see things more clearly, write the answers to these questions, and more, in a journal so that when you go back to read it, you can gain some clarity about how you feel and what steps to take next.
2.) GO INTO LOVE. Most people do not want to hurt others intentionally. But what most people do not understand is that this belief is also an illusion. Now, you may not agree with me here, but if your intention is to be loving and to not be hurtful, whether they choose to be victimized and hurt is their issue to deal with, not yours. We have no control over how others feel or react. The best way to handle the situation is to face your own fears, move into love, and get truthful about where you are at that moment.
3.) COMMUNICATE YOUR FEELINGS, HONESTLY. Consider letting the other party know you are in a different place in your life and you want to move on. A lot of people I've known in the past have a really hard time with honesty. I've seen people looking for an out (through duplicity, affairs, etc.) or they even create a dramatic event placing themselves in a victim role to make someone else wrong. This is very painful and damaging to everyone and creates bad karma. Staying in your own power of love and just telling the entire truth is always better. It sets both of you free to move forward without shame or guilt.
4.) MOVE ON AND STAY OPEN. Take responsibility for your own decisions and actions. If you say you've moved on, then move on. However, I always tell my clients in this situation to "NEVER say NEVER." After a period of separation from an ex-friend or ex-lover, there is always the possibility that you are a vibrational match again. Sometimes old friends, old lovers, ex-spouses, can come back together in a stronger way, and build a new foundation based on who they are NOW after they've experienced certain lessons that have changed their outlook and self-awareness that did not work in the original relationship dynamics.
Of course, in instances where severe emotional, spiritual and physical abuse were the norm, it would be advisable to proceed with caution, discernment and strict boundaries.
In the realm of Karma, the key is to live in a state of harmonious balance between polarities, always in love.
