Positive Vibes for Positive Brides by Psychic Medium Linda Lauren


You are preparing to get married and one of the first orders of business is to share the good news with family and friends. During that time is when you begin looking for the bridesmaids and grooms who will stand by you, helping you enjoy the fun stages of planning the wedding, from the engagement party to the main event, with the bachelor/bachelorette parties sandwiched somewhere in between.
With all that activity going on, the challenge is to keep up a positive vibe so you don’t get stressed. There are several ways you can accomplish this:
Meditate daily. Taking time out for yourself will rejuvenate you and help you keep you mood in high spirits. Put 10-20 minutes aside and sit quietly and breathe. You can add soft music, as long as it’s instrumental, and just allow your thoughts freedom. It will be a great pick-me-up as well as a centering. Make sure you make this time for you alone. Turn off your phone and ignore any communication that isn’t internal.
Be smart about how you use and post on social media - Don’t be a slave to it. Yes, I know there is that temptation to post every photo and video clip of things as they are happening. There is a better way to do that: delegate the job of posting to one particular person and decide what smartphone or camera they will use. There will be plenty of guests doing their own posting, but at least you will have the security in knowing that your end has been taken care of for you,
Make a To Do list - it doesn’t matter whether someone is doing things for you or whether you are doing them yourself, this can be a scattered time and even the most organize person needs to work with a list. As the bride, you have the master list and can orchestrate everyone from the maid of honor to the wedding planner.
This is enough to get you started and set the tone for a happy, stress free (as much as possible) wedding. Even if you take one of these into consideration, it will most likely make a difference for you. So....here’s wishing you a fabulous wedding and a long and happy marriage!

Arranging the Work-Space to Embrace Balance by Linda Lauren

I create my day every day by putting out to the universe what I want to embrace and receive in return. I have discovered that balance may be the most important thing that I want to embrace. I believe balance is one of the ingredients we need to afford us success in life and business. When I am feeling balanced it puts an entirely different spin on my day, making it easier to navigate through the murky waters of the decision-making process. It's important to me to initiate each day by incorporating balance in a way that feels natural. Not everyone likes order, and creating balance can make the messiest mind, and/or desk, become something out of the comfort zone. But, once you get used to how it feels to be balanced, new discoveries will more than likely be exposed, making the process something that adds quality to your days.



There are several ways to initiate balance. Here are four that I personally use and I have found them most helpful. They are bound to get you motivated as they have the potential to open you up to a clean canvas. That canvas allows you to begin anew at the desk where you spend most of your time.

  • Meditate: This is mandatory to me as it will set the tone for clear thinking and make way for the mindfulness needed to create a day that easily moves your work forward without stress. It affords you a clear slate.
  • Survey: Look at the surface of your desk as a table rather than as a desk. Close your eyes and try to remember what things looked like. Visualize yourself at the desk and try to remember your movements as they were when you are working. This will give you a sense of what is important to your work, and what might be in the way.
  • List: After opening your eyes, make a list of what is on your desk. Then number that list in the order of item importance. Include keepsakes and photos, adding them last to your list. This familiarizes you with the energy of your desk and what inspires you the most.
  • Arrange: By process of elimination, choose the items on your list that you are keeping. Keep only what you intend to use, and place the items on the desk in a way that allows you to effectively reach them with ease. Keep in mind the adage that less is more.
Now, give yourself some time with your new work-space, and be diligent. I have found that working with just the surface helps to keep the space uncluttered, which may ultimately lead to better productivity. The key to the success of this is to always be cognizant to return everything to the same place each and every time you use something so it becomes second nature.

In the beginning, this can seem like a nuisance, but in the long-run it has the potential to boost morale and return to you large allotments of time you may normally have missed out on. That result will have you embracing a more balanced work environment.

Managing Mercury in Retrograde by Linda Lauren

This blog entry is being repeated because we have just entered a retrograde and I would much rather see everyone plan ahead day by day, rather than panic and make things worse for themselves.

From June 7 to July 2, 2014, the planet Mercury is in retrograde motion. That usually strikes fear in normally rational individuals because someone told them that we were in “mercury retrograde” and that somehow is negative.

Mercury is the planet governing communication, transportation and truth. When it is in “retrograde” it’s movement appears to be streaming backward in the skies, and that backward intention affects all forms of communication: whether that be via computer or person to person. Just because there are more misunderstandings and bad judgment calls made during Mercury Retrograde periods than any other time, does not mean that Mercury is singularly responsible. I am beginning to suspect an uncomfortable pattern. By the very virtue of the Universal Law of Attraction, many people are actually encouraging the frustration experienced during this time, rather than working with the blessings and magic of it.

We don’t have negative planets; we have negative people who use the planets as a great excuse for negative thinking, and in some cases, even negative behavior. So let’s clear the decks and get a better understanding of this phenomena and how best to flow with it.
  • Unless it involves something already in the works, avoid signing new contracts or any other important agreement papers while Mercury is Retrograde.
  • Back up your computer files regularly because Mercury wreaks havoc with any form of technology, whether that is a computer or a toaster oven.
  • Avoid travel, and if you can’t, then give yourself a lot of extra time and confirm your itinerary several times and check all reservations.
  • Be extra mindful of your words. Be clear and concise about what you are conveying and don’t take things to a personal level. Even the most innocent requests can take on total miscommunication.
The late spiritual writer and teacher, Vernon Howard said, “What gets your attention gets you!”  And that is very much like the Law of Attraction.  If you focus too long on the negative you will soon find yourself connecting with more of that until you are drained of positive energy.  Don’t do that to yourself and never allow anyone else to influence you in that way.

Some suggested activities when Mercury is in Retrograde: editing, revising, reviewing, research, relaxing, and regrouping. Also, cleaning out clutter, organizing and catching up on paperwork are highly favored during this time. Above all, remember that this is a magical time to reconnect with the past while revisiting abandoned projects and renewing old relationships.

Have a magical retrograde!

Meditate Away the Sizzling Stress of Summer

by Psychic Medium Linda Lauren

Meditating on Linda's Island ~ ETU Abbracciare
Summer can usher in a lot of commitments and meditation is a helpful way to set the tone for the coming months so we enjoy life rather than deal with stress. For the past four decades, I have been helping people to live better lives by teaching them techniques to help them handle stress through correct breathing. Many view meditation as a structured Eastern practice with rules for how it is done. This is true for people who practice within that belief system.

But what about the rest of us: the businessperson, parent, mate, friend, family member, who doesn't follow that philosophy but still wishes to create the awareness that meditation offers and reduce stress in their lives? How can they sizzle away stress as the seasons change?

Meditation is about being mindful of your spirit enough to focus inward for the serenity and guidance you need. It's having a moment to hear yourself think. We have the answers within us, and with a steady routine, we can harness a personal power that will remove much of the emotion that stress can cause. The only steadfast rule is slow breathing. Proper breathing is an advantage to handling life and health matters, and is especially helpful for dealing with overall stress. I have outlined a simple method of breathing to get you started so that anyone, at any age, can enjoy meditating.

  1. Make an appointment with yourself to go to a space you have designated where you will not be disturbed. Make those you live with aware that you are meditating.
  2. Wear clothing that is loose and comfortable, and choose a time of day/night that is conducive to you being able to observe the silence within. Play some soft instrumental music to help set the mood.
  3. Start by taking some slow, deep breaths, in through your nose and out through your mouth, just as slowly.
  4. Sit quietly and allow yourself to sense your surroundings. Don't worry about noise or distraction; that will change when you begin a regular routine.
  5. Follow the inhalation and exhalation of your breathing, using the timing of your breathing or your heartbeat as a marker to mindfulness.
Meditation time can range from 10 minutes to hours. Choose what you feel comfortable with. Once you adopt this practice in your life, you will be embracing a more peaceful existence. More things go right when we meditate than wrong!
