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!

The Law Of Attraction and Living Happy by Psychic Medium Linda Lauren

Being happy should be our first priority in life. I have found that when I am happy, all other things around me fall more into place. I believe we can attract more of what we want in our lives by being happy and positive than by being angry and maudlin. The Law of Attraction tells us that what you focus on, you will attract to you. That is something to empower ourselves with! It means we actually have control as to how things play out for us.


In these high emotional times of politics and issues, it is more important than ever to emphasize what we want and not on what does not really serve us. It all really starts with our daily intentions. According to this universal law, your experiences in life are created and propelled by the thoughts you have. So it is important not to invite into your life the kind of thoughts that defeat that purpose. Here are some ways to help keep attracting to you the things that will enhance your life.

Trust your intuition rather than your emotions when it comes to decision-making to guarantee results that might better suit you.

Lending your attention on thinking about what you want may make them happen more quickly.
Envision things as you want them to be, rather than as they are right now.
Don’t watch TV shows that are negative as to crime or illness, and read and see the local and world news only regarding what you need to know.
Don’t forget to dream, as dreams can guide your intentions.
These suggestions are not foolproof, but I have known them to work for me, as well as my clients and friends I’ve shared with. Switch your thinking to the Law of Attraction and experience and see the difference for yourself. It may not be easy at first because we already have predisposed thinking, but over time, you may be quite surprised at how much more positive life is by attracting what you want as a first priority.

Ways the Color Red Helps by Linda Lauren


At this time of year, we see a lot of the color red, but do you know what that color might mean, and how it may influence us in our daily lives? I have been a color and energy expert for decades. My primary responsibility is to teach people how to use color to create the energy we may want to experience.

Red evokes strength and passion. It affords us feelings of excitement and accomplishment and is a great color to incorporate onto your person or into your environment. It is often a color of unity and has been consistently used on many flags, as well as in many restaurants for appetite appeal.
Here are some other ways the color red helps:
- Creates a festive outlook for any event or season.
- Offers a feeling of inner strength and outer appeal.
- Embraces passion for people and projects.
- Inspires love and forward action.
The best thing to do is try to integrate the color into your wardrobe or into your environment. For instance, I’m using a poinsettia plant as the “red” for my living room. When I am in that room, the color fills me with strength and love, instilling an overall feeling of positive energy. Try it yourself: include the color red into your day and enjoy it’s vibration.

Angels in the Office


This is an excerpt on angels from my memoir, Medium Rare by Linda Lauren

Angels surround us. They fill a lot of space that we think is “empty.” You don’t have to believe in angels to be surrounded by them, but if you do believe, then it’s important to remember to request help, rather than to simply expect help, from the angels. Here is a personal story to illustrate this Divine connection!

In 1996, after years of reading at my home, other peoples’ homes, and psychic fairs that took me to various hotels, I decided to rent an office of my own. I’m not a living-out-of-the-suitcase kind of person, and that is how it begins to feel after sitting in the energy of so many different venues! Each time, I would have to get used to the new space, find a comfy seating arrangement, and spiritually prepare myself, and the room I’d be working in, for the readings to come. This was a good move, and what better person to look for the rental space than my own mother?

“Feels OK,” I heard Mom say, as the landlord escorted us up the stairs to the offices.
He opened the door to an outer office and into a reception area. Inside were three other offices; one already occupied by an attorney who only used the place a couple of days a week. I would have the third floor to myself most of the time, a free waiting room, and a private entrance for my clients.

“Is this place secure?” Mom was still asking questions.

“We have an alarm system that calls to the police, and I will give you the little key to activate it,” he said. “You can’t get in or out of this building without the alarm key.”

That Saturday evening, we stopped by the new space with a coffeemaker and three gold painted angel figurines that belonged to my mother’s late sister. I set up the coffee maker and positioned the three angels across the desk.

“I’ll be sitting in the waiting room if you need me,” Mom said.

A short while later, I turned out the light and slid the doorknob to the lock position. I locked the door, and, before I even realized it, I could “see” the keys still on the desk inside the room! . It was one of those realizations that make you cringe.

“Please tell me you didn’t just leave the keys inside!” Mom rolled her eyes. “Use the spare.”

“We have no spare and we’re locked in from the outside, and locked out from the inside office.”

“Try your cell phone.” I could sense the tenseness in her voice as it cracked the words.

“We’re in a dead zone and I can’t get a signal.”

“Is that supposed to be funny?” she was now panicking.

“What are we going to do?”

“We’re going to start praying, Mom. We both talk about the power of prayer and how we call on the angels for help. Well, now is as good a time as any to have that faith.”

“Angels, please help us.”

“Please open the door for us.” Mom said sweetly as I turned to her and together we said a prayer and waited.

Some moments later I felt moved to go to the door. I wrapped my hand around the knob and gave it a turn. Nothing. I moved back from the door and shrugged. A few minutes passed, and we both heard a click. Turning, we watched as the door softly swung open! The tears in my eyes began to spill down to my cheeks.

“Oh my God! Thank you, thank you, thank you.”

Mom got up an offered a hug and a smile.

It was at that single moment that we mutually came upon the profound awareness that we are not alone; that our angels, too, are watching over us.

A Sign of the Chimes by Linda Lauren

Recently, I received an email from a client and friend. She asked that I share my answer.

Dear Linda:
This morning I was sitting here at my desk and I heard chimes, like the sound of wind chimes. It wasn’t a faint sound…I thought it was pretty distinctive. I turned around and asked my co-worker if she has heard them and she looked at me as if I were crazy. Apparently, she had not heard the same thing that I did.
Doesn’t that mean something when you hear wind chimes? Is someone trying to contact me from the other side? What do you think? — Carol

My answer is based on my own experience. I have always felt strongly that chimes are an indication that your angels, guides or loved ones are around you. They are simply making their presence known. It should always be seen as a sign of comfort, but it is not necessarily a sign of a specific message. Think of “chimes” or even the sound of bells as someone on the other side announcing themselves at your “door.” Though many times we don’t always answer their door, we can always count on the sound being a welcomed visitor and not one to fear. Chimes never represent strangers; they represent someone who is familiar to us in spirit.

For instance, I lost my godmother, my Aunt Jeannie, awhile back, and I was at the hospital when she drew her last breath. I stood beside her sister (no relation) and out of all the people in the room, we were the only ones who could attest to seeing a mist rise from my aunt’s body at the moment of death. We never really discussed it with anyone. However, when we met at the funeral home, she had an interesting story to share. She told me that when my aunt was alive, they were so close that they were in contact every day by phone, at around noon, when they would take a break for lunch, Usually it was my Aunt Jeannie who would make the call. After my aunt died, her sister shared with me that she had been hearing the chimes in the backyard ring every day, with no wind, at noontime, and that she felt comforted by the fact that my aunt still seemed to be “calling” her.

So, Spirit is communicating when you hear chimes. Embrace them and put yourself in a quiet place so that you can be mindful to what they may be saying.

POSTSCRIPT: while I was writing this, I was debating in my head whether my aunt spelled her name Jean or Jeannie. I decided that it didn’t matter, and I was just about to submit this piece to be published when the phone rang! My friend, Todd, was here visiting and I looked at the phone and commented “No Caller ID.” But something told me to answer it. After saying hello, the man said, “Jeannie?”

I told him he had the wrong number, but did he? I went back and changed the spelling of her name, just in case.

Embracing Memories of the Other Side by Linda Lauren

I recently moved into a new house, and in my attempts to make it a “home,” I have been transferring boxes that I have had in storage for some forty years! Someone asked me what was in some of the boxes. My reply was “memories,” as that is what I am about. Not nostalgia, but memories of my life and the people who embraced, and continue to embrace, sharing that life with me.


Many of those memories are of family who are long gone, particularly my mother and father. I miss them the most. Memories create a vortex of emotion that can be overwhelming, but important to the messages that have those people into it. Admittedly, keeping those emotions in perspective are difficult, yet they can be ultimately rewarding.

In the case of my new home, it is my mother I sense around me the strongest. It’s as if she has been waiting for this connection to happen for over a decade. Now that it’s here, I can sense her energy in very strong and familiar ways. Most especially, it is the desire to pick up the telephone and speak to her in real time that is the most intensely felt. It is as if she did not die at all. Yes, as a medium I can connect with her in the manner of communication, but this feeling transcends that. With every new or old discovery, I have the immediate reflex to actually believe that she is still alive in this world and that I can share with her all that is transpiring. The spirit does not die with the body, so when we think of the person and experience the body, we are embracing a part of them we remember as still living in this earthly existence.

My clients and friends have all told me that they have touched upon the same sentiments and ask how to deal with them. I have discovered that the way to work with this energy is to fully seize it and focus our attention on the actual communication. Doing that is easier than one might realize:
  • The key to communication of any kind, particularly that of the other side, is meditation. It is the single most important way to open yourself up to the vibration that is expressed from any spiritual connection. 
  • Listening and acting upon these sensations. This will help you feel better about it, so don’t be afraid to reach out to your loved ones who have passed away. They are reaching out to you and what you are experiencing is the intensity of them moving closer to you. 
  • Journal your documentation of this special dialog, as that will enrich your familiarization and enhance your own ability for that special connection.
Remember that your connection is like a telephone, and with practice you can enjoy a rich, rewarding “visit” with loved ones.

When I began to have the familiar “conversation” with my mother, I decided to write down the details of what I wanted to share. That is when I realized that those “memories” have opened up a way to be consoled by her energy. So if this is happening to you, don’t be afraid to act upon it, as it is one of the most healing aspects of communication you can deliver to yourself.

Time Traveling Through Your Playlist by Linda Lauren





I had a beauty day recently, and my first stop was the hair salon for a splash of fresh color. I usually do this on my day off and I elect the entire day to attend to personal grooming, necessities and errands. The owner of the salon usually has on a favorite station and it happens to be one that I like, too. So the experience of sitting and waiting in the chair while he works becomes an experience in memory recall.

I love music. It stirs emotion and speaks directly to the spirit in ways that range from subtle to empowering. It is a colorful array of sound created through inspiration that we draw upon in our everyday life. Music can bring us down or pick us up. It can remember scenes of the past while creating new ones for the future. Often, we move toward music to embrace awareness and healing.

Sitting in the salon chair listening to music from my teenage years brought forth a flood of emotion and nostalgia that ultimately made me smile. I asked myself the question: what if I created a playlist for the specific purpose of drawing on memories I wanted to fondly recall? Would it be beneficial to my body, mind and spirit? I decided to try it and I garnished surprising results. My mood improved and the time spent in the salon (which is usually over an hour) felt like it was the shortest ever. When I returned home I created my own playlist and I recommend that you give it a try. Here is a way to get started.
  1.  Pick a time of your life that holds the fondest memories.
  2.  Research the songs from that decade and choose the ones that speak happiest to you.
  3.  Create a playlist and loop it to play throughout the day in the order you feel fits how you want to feel.
  4.  Journal or log what surfaces for you.
Granted, you may come away with some sad feelings, but the happy ones will be the strongest, so make sure to keep your focus on the positive. Try it for a few days and see how you feel afterward.

Enjoy, and happy time traveling through your playlist!

Three Ways to Peaceful Posting by Linda Lauren



If you want peace, you have to be peaceful. The way to encourage peace is through our words and actions. Often, we go daily thinking we are peaceful, loving people and for the most part, that is correct. However the incidents of encouraging peace are not evident in the media streams that engorge us with information, and we often miss the point because once we share, like, or follow we are making a statement and endorsing that person's belief system. Today more than ever it's important to be judicious with what you click on in the fast streams of information and people that pass through your computer.

For healthy endorsement and effective peaceful posting, consider the following:
1. Who is the source? Is the cause you are championing a real cause or is it something you found on the Internet that passed through your stream by someone you may or may not know?

2. Are you responding because you're embarrassed? If you "share" or "like" something, be sure you are doing so because you want to and not because someone shamed you into it. I've seen many posts pass my stream with a threat or dare that I'm not a good person if I don't do what is asked. Some have gone as far as to dare people to share! Those are bully tactics.

3. Are you mindful of whom you follow? Those people that you friend/follow also get your stamp of approval when you connect with them, and it's important to be discerning of the material you release. It is a direct reflection of who you are on the Internet. It becomes part of the identity you reveal publicly.

By being aware of how we interact when we are presenting ourselves on our computers, whether that is via Internet browsing or social media, will help us achieve a better balance of the issues we face daily. This allows us to discover our stance regarding our own beliefs, as it will help to separate them from the ones by people who communicate with us via our computer screens. You have to know what you believe before you can be challenged by another.

Remember: Your clicks, replies, shares, likes and follows are very powerful and should not be so easy to acquire. They are the pieces of the puzzle of the person you become when you are at your keyboard. It's part of your computer profile. Taking action now will help you create a powerful profile of peace, online and off.

Linda Lauren on Crystals and Gemstones

Learn about the Crystals and Gemstones we surround ourselves with by watching Psychic Medium Linda Lauren on the BetterTV show and reading her article 'Crystal Awareness'!


Crystal Awareness



Have you ever held a quartz crystal in your hand? Ever feel the wondrous delight of its gentle hum to your palm or feel its soothing vibration sear through your fingers, up your arm and tingle throughout your body? If you have not, then you are in for a treat that will tenderly awaken your senses and gently amplify your mind, for the energy one experiences by working with quartz crystals is soul-enriching and life-enhancing.

Quartz crystals are God’s gift to the earth, and a rare treasure to those who embrace their light. A crystal connection will alter your vision and ease you into a greater understanding of your Self. Crystals are found in watches, clocks, televisions, DVR’s, and computers, just to name a few of their applications. Quartz consists of raw piezoelectric energy, and when shaven down to microchip size produces electricity that operates these necessities in our lives. Imagine then, the personal power we can claim when we harness that energy and allow the gentle electrical vibrations of crystals and gemstones to balance and work with the flow of our own unique energy.

CHOOSING A CRYSTAL:
Quartz crystal points, clusters and polished stones can be found in most metaphysical shops. I would like to focus on Quartz Crystal Points, as these will be best to use for the purpose of making it your personal tool of power and transformation. A crystal point is a single column of clear quartz with 3 to 7 sides around the face, with a termination at the end. It is usually clear at the top half, and milky white at the blunt end. The following methods are acceptable, but remember, you do not choose your crystal, it actually chooses you!

Close your eyes and take a deep breath. When you open them, allow your eyes to fall on the first crystal you see.

TOUCH:
This is my favorite. A crystal will “call” to you, and when you pick it up you will feel a gentle vibration in your palm. It may take a few minutes to adjust. I suggest you take a deep breath, relax and allow the crystal to “speak” to you by focusing your attention on any vibration or warmth in the palm of your hand. Size does not matter when choosing a crystal point, as sometimes even the smallest chip may have more energy than a large point.

Once you have chosen your crystal, it is important that you keep it in a pouch of some kind. Silk, cotton, leather, are fabrics most commonly used. This will protect the point from any jarring or chipping, as you will be carrying it with you most of the time.

CLEANSING METHODS:
When you get home with your crystal, it is vital that you cleanse it. During the journey from the crystal mine to the place of your purchase, your crystal will have gone through many hands and been in many places. You will want to clear it of the residue from its journey to insure clarity. There are several schools of thoughts regarding this subject, and I will pass along a few methods commonly used. However, keep in mind that there is no right or wrong method to cleansing. When working with quartz, it is what sense you have regarding the stone that is important. Intuition plays an important role in developing crystal awareness.

Sea Salt or Salt Water — If you happen to be fortunate to live by the ocean, fill a cup with sea water and immerse your crystal in it for 24 hours, or until you sense it is cleansed. The alternative would be to fill a cup with a couple of spoons of sea salt and immerse the stone. (Note: Some people are not fans of this method, as they feel it alters the vibration of the stone.)

Rinse your crystal under cool tap water and dry with a cotton cloth.

Sage or Incense — Burn some dried sage or your favorite essential oil incense and run the crystal through the smoke.

CHARGING YOUR CRYSTAL:
Once you have cleansed your crystal, it is now time to charge your crystal’s energy. Here are some methods for charging:

The Sun — A crystal truly loves sun. This is my favorite method because it can be done anywhere. Simply put your crystal on a window sill, car dashboard, etc., and allow it to be nourished by the suns rays. The average amount of time is anywhere from 10 minutes to 10 hours. Again, you be the judge by listening to your intuition.

Some people place the crystal point into the soil of a healthy plant for a few days. Not only does it charge the stone, but it helps the plant, too.

After a dip in the ocean, allow the stone to sit in the sand with the sun beating down on it for a super-charge. (Just be careful you don’t bury the stone and lose it!)

I have a large cluster of clear quartz in my office. I lay my personal crystal points on top of the cluster to insure a charge.

Now we have covered the basics: choosing, cleansing, and charging a crystal. In order to work with your crystal you will have to program it. Imagine your clear quartz crystal as a blank tape. You can “record” your desires, needs and wishes into it. A crystal can hold as many “programs” as you need to instill. Some programs will become temporary, until your desire is met or your accomplishment is achieved. The way to program a crystal is to do the following:

Hold the crystal between your hands in prayer-like position with the point up. Clear your mind. Now visualize yourself actually in the situation of your desire. “See” yourself clearly. Then state an affirmation. For example: If you have the desire for a specific job, picture yourself as already in the job, happy and content. Then state something like: “I am working at the perfect job.” The affirmation insures the thought into the program. If you wish, you can also “tell”; the crystal verbally what you want in your life. The key is to “see it” and then “say it.” That’s it. You are now ready for the last and most important step: Meditation.

MEDITATION
The primary way to work with your crystal to manifest what you have programmed into it is via meditation. When you wish to “receive” the benefits of your program, you would hold the crystal in your left hand. For example, if you are sick and wish it to help heal you, use the left hand. Put the crystal in your right hand when you want to “send” your program out into the universe, where action will take place.

Take your crystal with you to a quiet place, or a favorite room, and light a candle. Relax a few moments with your crystal. Look at it. Get to know it. Every crystal is different. Yours might have wisps inside, or sparkly inclusions of color. Examine it quietly while taking some deep breaths. Close your eyes and allow the crystal to pulsate in your palm. Concentrate on the vision of your desire and allow whatever images to come to you…or to leave you. Do this every day for at least 10 to 15 minutes. Not only will you notice a difference in what is manifesting in your life, but you will feel happier and your spirit will be lighter.

It takes about 30 days to bond with a crystal. Keep it under your pillow every night, shower with it, bathe with it, carry it in its pouch and take it with you where ever you go. It will soon become your pocket best friend.

Spotlight on Linda Lauren and her new book; Sentimental Journey- Lanai Jarrico Reporting…





It is my pleasure to share such an accomplished woman with The SL Enquirer fans in this spotlight feature and someone I proudly call a dear friend.



Linda Lauren is a 4th generation psychic medium who owns and operates a metaphysical center in Mountainside, New Jersey. Her abilities have taken her on an interesting journey through life. Her professional career in intuitive zoning stems back to 1978 where she first began consulting law enforcement in murder investigations.  She has went on to help many find peace and healing throughout her career.
I have had the opportunity on several occasion to spend time with Linda Lauren and her assistant Susan Dolinko at her metaphysical center where I’ve experienced my first Reiki session, got a personal reading as well as two separate visits to see Max, one of the 13 ancient crystal skulls.  I have also gone to two of her book signings in New York City. All I can say is Linda is the real deal and one of those unique people that leave a lasting impression. Her presence radiances love, healing and peace and she also inspire me with her kindness and abundance of energy.
Today, Linda Lauren spends her time as a resident psychic on Sway in the Morning radio show on Sirius/XM, The Ron and Yaya in the Morning radio show in Reno, and making appearances on numerous media sources such as CNN, NBC, ABC-TV ,The New York Times, The Daily News and The Wall Street Journal just to name a few.
She also loves to blog, contributing color forecasts on The Huffington Post, The SL Enquirer, writing and meeting with clients at Linda Lauren’s Embracing the Universe in her native New Jersey,  as well as in the virtual realm here in Second Life.
If her rĂ©pertoire isn’t impressive enough, Linda Lauren is an energy artist as well as author of several books including Medium Rare, Hostage in Time and her latest work, Sentimental Journey.
Without giving too more much away, I will let Linda share what inspired her as well as latest book and where you can get it.



Interview with Linda Lauren
Lanai: Linda as always it is such a pleasure to interview you about what is going on in your very busy and exciting life. You have really kept busy since the last book signing I went to for Medium Rare in New York City. How are you doing these days?

Linda: I'm doing well and enjoying both my real life and my Second Life. I have been doing a lot of writing, blogging and creating my daily Linda Lauren's Color Forecast™ to share with people to help them create their day.

Lanai: You have done so much in the 6 years I’ve known you. How do you manage everything and still stay sane and balanced?

Linda: Meditation is key for balance. I open and close my day with at least a half hour session.

Lanai: Let’s jump right in and discuss your new book; Sentimental Journey. It takes place in wartime, 1944 and is about a romance that seems to happen by fate. Can you give our readers a teaser about the story and the main characters Allison and Johnny?

Linda: I explain it like this: What if you had the cure for the common cold available to you whenever you needed it? What if that cure was in the form of a twenty-four-hour time-release capsule?  What if it not only cured your cold but also took you back in time by twenty-four years?
Now imagine your cold returns when you return, and you discover there is a forty-eight-hour time-release cold capsule in the experimental stages. Would you be desperate enough to take that capsule? What if in doing so it takes you forty-eight years into the past, making you a spirit in time and meeting the love of your life smack in the middle of World War II?
That is what is happening to Allison McKay in the year 1992, and her dilemma is further complicated by the man she meets and the people she befriends. Enjoy watching love race over two different time periods to bring two people together.

Lanai:  I notice, you like to write your books with the scene being in the early time periods? What draws you to that time?

Linda: What draws me is a family or karmic connection that I might feel about the era. Then I start to research and get into the atmosphere of the time period.

Lanai: What is your most favorite genre to write about?

Linda: I enjoy writing time travel romance, ghost stories, and, of course about my work as a psychic medium.

Lanai: What inspires your writing? Do you ever use real life experiences and incorporate them within the themes of your non-fiction work?

Linda: Real life is a catalyst for me. In Sentimental Journey, the story came about because my late mother gave me the pink-faced lapel watch pin she received from my dad in 1944. There is a photo of her wearing it in the book, and it is a key element in the story.

Lanai: Your book signing is coming up for Sentimental Journey, where is it taking place and how can fans get tickets?

Linda: The event is taking place at the Carlyle Hotel in NYC and is by private invitation. To get on the list, please call or write using the information below. Please call 908-518-9001 or email info@lindalauren.com

Lanai: Where can our readers purchase Sentimental Journey and other books you have written?

Linda:  My books can be found on amazon.com iBooks and on my website.

Lanai:  What do you have in store for 2015 that we should be watching for? Any messages you would like to share with our readers for this coming year?
Linda: The new year ahead is going to be invigorating and positive. Personally, my next books will be fiction and non-fiction. I'm writing about color and energy and also introducing a possible new time travel series character.

Thank you for sharing what you have been up to and giving our readers a sneak peek into your new book. I wish you all the best!
