Laurie Huston from News the Heart is talking with physicist Tom Campbell on Our Experiences don’t create our Beliefs… Our Beliefs create our Experiences. We discussed the 3 things that create our experiences beginning with our Fears, then our Ego and then our Beliefs. It is our perceptions of us taking everything personally that defines our experiences! We tend to see everything from a place of what is happening to us, instead of how can we serve others. He offers tips and tools to help us focus on authentic Love vs fear. Tom has a brilliant way to simplify our world into love vs fear, however, that doesn’t mean it is easy. We discuss examples of how we take things personally, and how it is a simple shift of perspective that can allow you to come from a place of Love. We just have to stop looking outside ourselves for the answers and live our life BEing authentic, caring for people instead of focusing on just ourselves and what we need. This is Fear, Ego & our Beliefs and pulls us away from Love. We discuss how we create our reality by either Fear or Love and what it means to truly ‘Share’ with someone vs manipulate relationships. We can shift our perceptions when we are feeling triggered by fear and focus on Love, it comes from a BEing level not a mental place. Join us for this fascinating discussion! We’re Getting to the Heart of what Matters!

Happy Easter Laurie!
I’m writing this on March 30th, day of the New Moon in Aries, the official beginning of the New Astrological Year 2014. I feel the “newness” of the day and the hope that Spring may finally be here. Although, I’m not sure our weather gods have received the memo. Yet, we are beginning to see the end of the -Celsius weather, at least during the day. Fingers crossed that it will continue.
April is when BeMajor.org is taking off, my shows aren’t completely booked up yet, so please refer to facebook for when my shows are happening. I also may have sent you a facebook friend request from BeMajor.org’s new profile and page, please take some time and join us! Our shows will also be updated there too!
I also want to remind you that we have 2 eclipses this month, full moon, total lunar eclipse April 15th and a solar eclipse on April 29th (which is also another new moon in Aries… which gives New Beginnings an extra boost) and is considered one of the first “blood moons” which is a biblical prophecy. (From what I’ve read, two Christian pastors, Mark Blitz and John Hagee, use the term Blood Moon to apply to the full moons of the upcoming tetrad – four successive total lunar eclipses, with no partial lunar eclipses in between, each of which is separated from the other by six lunar months (six full moons) – in 2014 and 2015. John Hagee appears to have popularized the term in his 2013 book Four Blood Moons: Something is About to Change.) I’m excited to see what may occur beginning this month, but I honestly believe that good things are in store for us, not the prophecy of dread or end of the world! Eclipse’s do have a lot of extra energy to offer and people who are sensitive may not like the energy, but they will
move us forward and that is what it is all about!
My Inspiration this Month
I’ve been contemplating compromise in the grand scheme of our lives. We are taught that we should be “in service” to the world; that if we want to love it is about “giving”; and that our ego is “bad”. Then I reflected upon our dreams and desires, how we need to set intentions and be clear about what we want so the Universe can deliver our dreams, as long as we can let go and not try to control the outcome. I also considered relationships, which is really the only way we grow, so therefore, are probably one of the most important resources to develop. And finally, I pondered about what it means to focus outside ourselves instead of inside where the magic can happen. These thoughts all brought me to try and understand whether we compromise too much of who we are in life, so that we can follow the expectations of the world (spiritually, mentally, physically and emotionally).
We seem to live in a world full of dichotomy, full of demands and expectations, full of what is “right vs wrong” and it becomes difficult to wrap our minds around what we need to do for ourselves. Do we compromise who we are in relationships, whether they are our intimate relationships, family, friends or work colleagues? I know I have! Trying to do the right thing often leads us to compromise something within us. A dream, a belief or a value that is incongruent to who we are at a soul level. When our boss requests we do something, and our job is contingent on completing our tasks, do we have a choice? What about when our spouse requests we set aside something that we are doing to assist them, or want us to do something that we don’t or can’t because it is against our inner core? The other problem is when are we just feeding our ego and its needs, doing something that is what we need from a soul desire or opening our hearts and just plain giving? Ego is really just what we want! It doesn’t take into consideration “others”. Compromise and ego don’t really have a middle ground. Do our dreams, intentions and desires have to take a back seat to compromising for the good of our relationships?
When is compromising the “right” thing to do and when does it corrode who we are and our Soul’s dreams? We have to honor our inner convictions and inner self. I think part of the problem is that we aren’t always conscious of our inner values and belief systems. Probably this is where we have to begin the search or deep understanding of who we are. I believe that when two people are in a relationship dynamic that comes from different spectrums of the same thought (example is the love vs fear spectrum, one person may be responding from a place of love, the other from fear) we can discuss it rationally to get the other person to see both sides of the spectrum. But sometimes it may be about compromising part of what you need for the greater good of the relationship. Perhaps as long as you aren’t settling for something that is essential to who you are, maybe compromising is okay. Or maybe it has more to do with as long as we are whole and residing in and honouring that place of wholeness within ourselves, when someone asks us to do something, it is not a compromise, you just do it or you don’t and there is no story about it because you are whole and you are existing in that place of wholeness. The problem comes from when we are not in this state or place of wholeness and then we simply exist from a place and state of compromise. This is when awareness is key to our understanding of what is compromise and how we define who we are!
Take some time and reflect how well you are able to honour and respect yourself in relationship with yourself and in relationship with others. Are there areas in your life where you compromise yourself? Maybe some areas you have mastered and others need some attention.
It is important to recognize the difference between compromising what you want and compromising who you are.

With Love and an Open Heart,
I hear Spring is on its way! It’s hard to believe with the cold weather we have been experiencing. We had the Tibetan New Year on March 2nd and will have our Spring Equinox March 20th. However, as previously discussed, Mercury went direct Feb 28th, only to have Mars station retrograde March 1st and Saturn station retrograde March 2nd (although, Jupiter will station direct on March 6th and we all love the planet of luck). Mars is in the sign of Libra, so it is believed the action planet will be reviewing relationships. This is also another month where we will have 2 new Moons and next month we will have 2 eclipses (beginning of the Blood moon series of 4, more on that next month)… yikes, this year just seems to be full of planetary disturbances. The good news is that the second half of 2014 will have less drama!
I had my first “Hangout” with Victoria Lorient-Faibish on Feb 28th and my new show is called News for the Heart, produced by IntuitiveSoul.com and our new radio distributor BeMajor.org and Blogtalkradio.com/bemajor. Look on Facebook for more shows scheduled this month.
My Inspiration this month:
This month I listened to a teleclass given by Derek Rydall and although, I didn’t get caught up in the hype of his program that has all the answers to Wealth Consciousness, I did really appreciate his main points: the “Great Reversal” when we realize that everything we need is within us and whatever is missing is what we are not giving and the “big betrayal” when the Universe conspires against us when we give our power away to other people or things believing they are the source. In connection with the Great Reversal, I liked what he had to say about the 7 gifts that we are missing: Continue reading

Inspiration for this Month: Love Unfolding
As we observe the colder than average winter, we begin to long for spring and warmer weather. Our groundhogs have unanimously decided that we are in for another 6 weeks (although, our meteorologists were already confirming this). On a brighter note, this is the shortest month of the year and the one I have declared as “Love Month”. We allow ourselves an opportunity to open our hearts during this cold, short month because of one day. Unfortunately, many put so much emphasis and expectation on this day to be perfect and set it as a benchmark for how love will show up in their lives.
Valentine’s Day is a lovely opportunity to look at our lives and see what we truly desire in love. Love, first and foremost, should be appreciated from our own hearts. Asking ourselves what does love mean to us? Is it open and flowing or full of disappointments? Do we know Love from inside, or do we only know love from how others have given it to us? Do we share love or covet it like there will never be enough? Is it safe for us to love?
These questions are important to our definitions of love and who we continue to bring into our lives. Love almost always is defined through our parents, how they interacted with one another and with us. The imprint of these interactions are often unconscious, yet they are ever present in our day to day lives.
We often continue to play out these same patterns all our lives. Yet, we have the opportunity to become the observer and evolve our relationships. As with most growth, it must occur within us first. The goal is to become aware of what is operating in our unconscious that is sabotaging our best efforts to nurture love in our own hearts and our relationships with others. We must understand our relationship with self and who we are from the bigger picture. Are we generous, open and compassionate to ourselves? Are we unavailable, thinking only of ourselves and withholding love unless it is proven worthy or our expectations have been met?
Let’s face it, we usually have expectations and needs when it comes to love. We often manipulate and try to control how we get love to meet our needs. Or give love when others meet our expectations. And it is often difficult to just BE in relationship with self and others.
When it comes to love, I invite you to let things just unfold! That way you don’t have to make a quick judgment of the person or relationship (no matter how long you have known them). Judgments are debilitating because once made we then keep them held within a defined box with perceptions and choices restricted to our original judgment. The thing is nothing is how we perceive it, nor is it possible for our perceptions to be accurate, because our past experiences and our judgments are always influencing what we perceive. If you can release the ideas you have created around yourself and others, you can be free of the drama within your life. And you can observe the real unfolding of life. Instead we usually are trying to manipulate and control everything to have it fit our expectations.
That is why it is so important to be open and allow things to unfold, especially when it comes to love! Love is like a flower opening up to the sun! It breathes the sun into itself and allows it to grow. I believe we can be this open with regards to love. To let go of the pain associated with our first introduction to love and redefine what love means to us. We do however, have to begin with ourselves! Share love openly to yourself as well as to others. Focus on the giving of Love and not on the receiving of necessary needs and controlling expectations. Understand the choices that keep you stuck in your misperceptions of love. Love is always evolving and unfolding all around us. God is always showing us how we can evolve. As we evolve, our understanding of what Love is changes. It is Love that feeds our soul and evolves our consciousness. When we can BE and let life unfold, we are embraced in the dance of life. If you desire more love in your life (whether new or renewed) then give unconditionally of your heart and let love unfold freely.
