Ego: Bad or Misunderstood?

As I am considering writing a book on fear and after my latest Blog which tried to define Fear – I feel the need to clarify fear and its relationship to Ego especially since many ‘spiritual’ teachers out there believe we need to get rid of our Ego because it is what holds us back from Becoming Enlightened. I work with a different opinion – at least under our current evolution – we are NOT in a place where we can just get rid of our Ego. We have a lot of growing up to do and we have too much fear as a society that our Ego is the only way for most of us to Grow at all.

So let’s approach this from a logical perspective. As a whole we are still living in a third dimensional world which breaks down through a process we call ‘entropy’ and becomes less … orderly. And what causes the break down in this three dimensional world? Fear. Fear is the opposite of Love and it is Love and its related kindness, compassion, acceptance that builds our world. And in this world that we live in we each have an Ego – an Ego that mostly runs our lives. Our Ego also is what pushes us to Grow Up because it is our Ego that is triggered when we focus on ‘us’ instead of ‘we’ or ‘you’. And when we sense ‘fear’ in our lives we focus on ourselves – and if we forget Love – we then experience pain and suffering. So in the midst of this pain there is a positive side effect related to the Ego and the value of having the Ego in place: If we didn’t experience the pain and suffering that our Ego alerts us to we might never have the desire to grow towards love.

Apr Newsletter 2019 – Motivation

Wow – March certainly went out like a Lion. I’m hoping that this April will be nicer than last year. It is always this time of the year when we BEcome Motivated to BEgin new projects and clear away the old to make way for new Possibilities. Now that Mercury is direct again (as of later last week) – we should begin to feel excited and inspired to move forward. We’ll be discussing below – What are you inspired to change with the turning of the seasons? More importantly: what is your motivation for changing?

Inspiration: Motivation

This has been an interesting month – many people are finding 2019 challenging so far. I have been excited and looking forward to spring and as I write this today we are just entering spring equinox. When considering the Canadian seasons winter, although often beautiful, is just too dark and cold most of the time. Once we reach equinox and have almost equal light to darkness (we get a few minutes more light at that time of the year) it is very welcomed – especially if it is sunny. What does any of this have to do with motivation? Well, we become motivated by many different things – for some of us it is shaking off the cold, short days of winter with the higher temperatures and enjoying the sunshine to motivate us to do spring cleaning – and of course stepping outside for more activities and focusing on a healthier lifestyle.

Yet often our motivation is through our fears. We often want a healthier lifestyle because we have had a health scare and we consider what we don’t want … like disease, excess weight, aging symptoms or aches and pains. Unfortunately this fear-based motivation isn’t a motivation that will sustain us through our desired outcome. Fear doesn’t motivate us enough to change; partially because we are always focused on what we don’t want. Whenever we are trying to change something within ourselves we continue to see, feel, hear, taste and smell the problem. For example: when we are experiencing pain we become focused on the pain and it is almost impossible to feel anything other than the physical pain we are hoping to alleviate.

Unfortunately fear-based motivation isn’t a motivation that will sustain us through our desired outcome.

June 2018 Newsletter: Living with Filters

Happy Solstice!

Summer is upon us. At least it has been for the past couple of weeks. Have to Love warmer weather and lots of Sun! This month Mars goes retrograde and why not take some time out and just enjoy the summer? Without the natural drive Mars can give us, let’s just have some fun this summer?

Tom Campbell, one of my favorite interviews, is creating history! He is proving we live in a Virtual Reality and the implications are going to change the way we view the world. We did an interview this week where we discussed his KickStarter Campaign to raise money to complete the experiments necessary. We all have enjoyed Tom’s wisdom over the past 9 years I have been interviewing him. Support this momentous research.

What’s Up in the Universal Sky this month: 

Nancy was unable to give us her next newsletter, so check her blog over the next few days to a week to get June’s Universal Sky Blog.

Inspiration: Filters of Fear or Love?

Last month we discussed “expectations and attachments” and how they impact our enjoyment of life through keeping us stuck in how we respond to situations and people. Through this I shared that we all have filters on how we view the world. We often find it difficult to comprehend how a certain filter, such as the feelings of abandonment, insignificance, not being enough, being unlovable or being unappreciated can impact how an event is perceived in our lives. And the reality is that we all have these filters of fear! Our filters impact how we interpret and view the world. Our filters block us from experiencing the Truth and BEing Open to Love where we would have no filters.

How do these filters come to be? We would have chosen to work through certain patterns, beliefs and fears with our Soul Group prior to coming to this life. Whether you believe in having one life or multiple, we are still connected to the larger consciousness system or Source or the Universe or God in a way that our Spirit is connected to a higher power. This allows us to have a support system – our Soul Group – that works with us to grow our consciousness or evolve our spirit. To do this we offer to work with individuals who will assist us to grow and evolve. We choose a certain view on the world as part of this growth process. This view is how we see the world. That is why when things happen we often default towards a certain belief. The default positions are the  filters that are prevalent throughout our lives and we may not even be conscious of how these filters impact our lives.

Let’s look at how our filters work. Since it is something I have worked with most of my life I can offer ‘abandonment’ as an example. When your core filter is around abandonment it makes you see abandonment in most areas of your life. When a friend, family or situation happens we often view it through this filter. We see a break-up as abandonment, someone upset or angry as abandonment, someone passing away as abandonment, financial difficulties as abandonment, job challenges as abandonment – do you see how ubiquitous it can become? When we are in a relationship we filter everything that happens as abandonment and this fear changes the relationship. The problem is that our partner will have a whole other filter with which they see the world. And each person believes what they see to be the truth: that their perceptions are what they are seeing in reality. However, they are seeing the world through a filter or even several filters.

Feelings vs Emotions

This month my inspiration came from Emmanuel Dagher’s Club Miracles healing call – where he discussed the difference between Emotions and Feelings. I found it fascinating: he sees our emotions as something we have judged as either good or bad – where our feelings are from a state of BEing and are not identified or judged as either good or bad, they just are. Emmanuel’s definition goes against the traditional definitions of emotions and feelings. Which made me wonder about whether we tend to judge most of our emotions through our past experiences and if there is a way to come from a place of BEing when it comes to our feelings?   Continue reading

News for the Heart talks with Tom Campbell on Tough Love

Laurie Huston from News the Heart is talking with physicist Tom Campbell on Letting Go through Tough Love. This conversation begins with us discussing that most of us aren’t able to let go because we don’t see that we have a choice. We discussed why our Ego holds on to our fears and how we get really stuck if we go into the victim mentality. He helps us again to understand that our beliefs, intention and fears will effect whether we can let go or whether we let our egos take over. We moved into how our fears stop us from letting go of relationships again this is through our fears. Relationships all assist us to grow, however, if we get caught in victim mentality or falling in Need with someone instead of Unconditional Love we fail to learn our lessons. This is where his Tough Love comes in, Tom reminds us exactly why we enter relationships and how to BE in relationships and how to Grow Up. It is through our intention to Grow towards Love or just Grow Up that the larger consciousness system that will help us and we can come from a place of BEing instead of an intellectual understanding that has no effect on whether we Grow Up. The changes, our Growing towards Love, effect us from a BEing level and rarely work if they just come from ‘doing’ or a mental wish. Remember we are here to Grow towards Love not stay stuck in our fears! Join us for this fascinating discussion! We’re Getting to the Heart of what Matters!

From Me to Unconditional Love and Acceptance

This past month I have been very aware and focused on something that I have been discussing with Tom Campbell (and others) and writing about for the past couple of years: How to come from a place of unconditional love and acceptance. We often are too focused on how others affect us or when something happens; we unconsciously look at how it impacts us. An example would be when interacting in a relationship and there is a conflict we automatically look at what this conflict means to us. We take whatever the conflict is personally and we react personally and this means we react from a place of ego. We allow what is happening to trigger us emotionally and we perceive it from a pattern that has created a story in our lives. Continue reading

News for the Heart talks with Tom Campbell – Grab Bag – Consciousness of Relationships – Happiness

Laurie Huston from News the Heart is talking with physicist Tom Campbell on the Consciousness of Relationships, Grab Bag (LOL). This is a deep conversation about the choices we make about relationships. We explore ways to BE happy and it can’t be from seeking it out. Happiness comes from letting go of our fears. Examining our fears based on when we get triggered. We added through this discussion how our reactions in relationships are always our fears and once we identify them, become authentic with them, accept them, then we can stop reacting from a place of fear. We also looked at our desire to be authentic and how to also express love to ‘other’ and accept other (as in relationships) we can grow towards love. Our biggest problem we come from this place we are in ego, placing conditions on Love and justifying everything that ‘happens’ as happening to us and bringing in our story. We need to understand that when we want something (happiness), our need to validate BEing right, we aren’t “loving” and it is all ego. Acceptance and BEing authentic are the first ways to face our fears and evolve towards Love. Accepting who we are, will assist us to understand ourselves and face our fears. Coming from a place of Love will always create what it is we desire most. Join us for this important discussion! We’re Getting to the Heart of what Matters!

Resolutions and Sabotage

holidaygratitude2016I have to say the last month of this year made up for the challenges throughout 2016. Receiving my sweet little kitten, Angel, on Dec 7th was definitely part of the Christmas Magic I so often talk about! However I’m amazed that the year is ending and a New Year, a new 9 year cycle is beginning. On Jan 1st 2017 (1-1-1) we begin a whole new cycle and I invite you to contemplate what the next 9 years hold for you, not just 2017. I, for one, can say that over these past 9 years I have grown more towards love than ever before. That certainly doesn’t mean it has been easy, no, not by any stretch of the imagination. This past 9 year cycle has seen change, death and transformation. In fact, I have been able to completely anchor my business and my services with a whole new energy – even when the price seemed quite high at the time. Continue reading

News for the Heart talks with Tom Campbell on our Resistance to our Fears.

tomcampbellLaurie Huston from News the Heart is talking with physicist Tom Campbell on our Reality. This is a deep conversation about how we resist our fears. It is always about Choice, however our fears are often unconscious. We discuss that Tom’s work on News for the Heart is how to apply his theories. We talk about how we often are concerned about our symptoms and not the cause of the problem. We tend to focus on the goal, where life is a process. Generally, we are focused, and our intent is looking at what is wrong and how to fix, change and manipulate the situation. We focus on what to do, vs how we can BE and who we are from a BEing level. The whole point of this physical reality is to make choices and to evolve the quality of our consciousness towards love through making ‘loving & caring decisions’; choices about others not just yourself. We have to own our problems, take responsibility for our choices and own our triggers. However, this process isn’t easy and it takes a level of courage to deeply make changes from this BEing level. We have to want to stop being a victim, blaming others or our situations on something outside ourselves and take full responsibility. To authentically look at how our fears continue to add to our story and keep us from evolving in a loving inner BEingness. We shared that when we are focused on our fears, our story, it is all about ME and our Ego; it’s all about YOU! And that’s the problem, as long as you stay unconscious of your fears, you will continue to choose your fears. However, if you can become conscious of your choices you will get an opportunity to make another choice, one of Love! Join us for this fascinating discussion! We’re Getting to the Heart of what Matters!

I choose to tune into the reality where…

creationI have always been against the way the Law of Attraction (LOA) has been described in ‘The Secret’ and by many other people and their books that have arisen as a result of this documentary. Mostly I have had issues about it because it tends to focus on everything outside of us and, really, does having the biggest house ever assist us in our spiritual growth? I believe that many of us are too focused on our lives from the outside – making ourselves comfortable and accumulating ‘things’. However, when it comes to the things that count, we often hope that there will be something outside ourselves that will assist us. We long for enough money so that we can experience the ‘freedom’ or ‘happiness’ we so desperately seek inside. So we tend to accumulate ‘things’ that will make us more comfortable but do they assist us inside? Continue reading

April Newsletter 2015: What’s Your Motivation?

Happy Easter!

easter_island_head_mystical

I know it is going to get warmer, but it is hard to see that when right now it is well below the normal high and there were even snow flakes in the air today!

This month we continue our monthly Support Group I’m hosting with Eric Altman, it will include weekly calls with Eric and his weekly distant Heart Transmissions  for a low price of only $97 per month if you sign up for 3 months. Please join us, it will be a great Support to our Spiritual Evolution! For more information or to join now GO HERE!

Transits this month:
Full moon/total lunar eclipse (called the pink moon) on April 4th at 6:16 am EDT is in Libra, which is about relationships and relationship with yourself. Due to the fact that it is a total lunar eclipse it will shine a light on what is balanced and unbalanced in your relationships, especially with self. Ask yourself what is out of balance on this full moon and over the next 6 months you should be able to focus on bringing it back into alignment.

Jupiter goes direct after being retrograde since Dec 8th. So on April 8th it will go direct in Leo, which is about our sense of Self and how to express our unique Soul.

Pluto lord of transformation will go retrograde on April 16-Sept 24th, in the sign of Capricorn. With Pluto, like other outer planets, retrograde is often a good thing, it means we can clean-up areas that need to be transformed. Since it is in my 6th house of health, I expect this to be the next stage in assisting me to be more motivated in assisting my health.

New moon in Aries, on the 18th 2:57 pm EDT is at 28 degrees, which is still about completing a cycle, however, the sun doesn’t move into Taurus until April 20th 5:41 am EDT (so, it isn’t as close as it has been these past 2 months). This new moon is very optimistic and indicates a strong new cycle and letting go of the past. It is a new stage that we can embrace to Wake UP!

I will have new guests and co-hosts on BeMajor.org this year, so please refer to facebook for when my shows are happening live and produced.

On April 2nd at 4pm EST, I will be a co-host with Jean Adrienne on her show Power Talk on www.healthylife.net. It’s live so call in on 800-555-5453! We are on every first Thurs of the month!

I will be away on a cruise and visiting my dear friend Jean Adrienne from April 1-14th, although, I will be available for some shows and remote work during this time. Please contact me at Laurie@IntuitiveSoul.com if needed.

What’s Your Motivation?

brown_rabbitThis past month I did a great interview with Eric Altman on motivation (https://www.intuitivesoul.com/news-for-the-heart-talks-with-eric-altman-on-motivation). To me this is an important piece to look at if we want to understand why we sabotage our own happiness. As you know, my personal journey has been focused on my health for the past couple of years, with the oncoming of Frozen Shoulders, heavy metal poisoning, and the realization that my body became pretty toxic as a result. In some ways it’s been a cosmetic reason, to lose weight but it has also been about having my shoulders functioning again. For too long now I have sabotaged my journey towards health by not doing what I know I need, and this process has dragged on, and in many ways has exasperated my pain.

While Eric and I were discussing what blocks us from attaining our goals, we touched upon an issue that many people have (Eric quoted that it could be as high as 95%). Many of us have an unconscious belief that we don’t want to be here. If it is such a high percentage, no wonder we sabotage out deepest desires! This is especially true when our desire is to be healthy. Up until 3 years ago, I didn’t have any physical distress. However, the chronic pain from both Frozen Shoulders and heavy metal poisoning brought about many changes. And many realizations about choices I’ve made and beliefs I’ve held, including that I didn’t want to be here. As well as decisions that if I were handicapped (chronic pain) I wouldn’t have to support myself. I didn’t have to take my chronic pain to this level or exasperate my condition further, because I realized the choices I was making and began the journey of healing.

Even though my shoulders are almost completely healed, I still continue to sabotage my health, even while I have consciously been focused on my health. And this is why I have continued to discuss it. This is the reason I want to discuss this with you. When you want something and you continue to sabotage your efforts, the place you need to look is your motivation. Conscious or unconscious, there is still a reason that you need to investigate, and discover why you continue to sabotage. Somewhere there is a conflicting motivation or belief that you need to uncover. Are you coming from a place from fear or love? This is critical when exploring your motivation.

Ask yourself if you are truly living? Where are you sabotaging your life? When you think about this life, do you often say you aren’t from here? Or are you looking forward to leaving, believing that the afterlife or your next life will be better? That this life you are being karmically punished?

When it comes to unconscious motivators we must remember that our “choices” come from the present! If we aren’t in the present, then we are reliving our past programming, our fears and our unconscious beliefs. When we are present and grounded, we can make better choices and observe and be more aware of our motivation. Both Eric and I have discussed how to become more grounded and that will allow for better choices (in our show https://www.intuitivesoul.com/news-for-the-heart-laurie-huston-talks-with-eric-altman). The trouble is that if on some unconscious level we do not want to be here suffering or for whatever reason, our motivation will be to sabotage the efforts of our conscious self who is doing our very best to live a meaningful and fulfilling life.

Beginning this Support Group with Eric Altman has definitely provided a new network of people to share and dream with. One of the most wonderful parts of being in a support group is that as you receive help and make progress on your journey, you are supporting others in the group on their journey. Likewise, as the other members of the group move forward on the issues they are working on, it helps you heal too! I invite you to share and explore your dreams and what is motivating them with us. If you find that there are certain things that you keep sabotaging, explore why. Discuss and share with a group of like-minded (or like-hearted) people. Find a way to be in charge of your choices and make sure all the parts of you are on board with moving in the same direction. Practice being Present and Grounded. This will assist you to be more aware. However, the most important thing to realize is that you are PERFECT just the way you are! Be Gentle to yourself and accept yourself! This will go a long way to Self-Love and Self-Care, the focus of 2015! And join our Support Group to support your Journey forward!
