Welcome Laura, thank you for coming on board with us, can you introduce yourself to us?
Thank you, is an honour to be part of BEYOUROWN. I come from the Dominican Republic, born and raise. I am a mom of a 4-year-old baby girl, and among other things, I am a Medium. As a way for sharing my spiritual experience, and fulfilling my childhood dream, I became an author, when I published ‘You Are Not Alone’ last year with Hay House and Balboa Press.
Even I spend several years working in the communication field as a journalist, PR manager, teacher, and owner of a video production company, my purpose finally strike in and I realise I couldn’t hide nor run from it anymore. After a few signs I received, I surrendered to my purpose and everything began to fall into place, my company went bankrupt, and I took that unfortunate event as an opportunity to focus on my gift and understand how I could serve the divinity and others. And there, everything began, this wonderful journey of channeling the messages from spirits in order to help people here on earth.
Knowing that I am adding value and love to the lives of others every day is my greatest satisfaction, it makes me wake up every day grateful for this life and this path they have chosen for me.
Can you talk us through the path you have pathed to where you are now as a medium?
The walkthrough has been more like a roller coaster than a path, but here we go! My gifts as a medium manifested at an early age since I was a child I could perceive unusual things. My paternal grandmother, who also had this gift, had images and figures of saints in her closet and I used to spend a lot of time sitting there, and as I can recall everything started there.
As I grew up, my abilities enhanced and when I was about 14 years old after my grandfather passed, my mediumship skyrocketed, it was as if they uncovered a bottle, and I could see more clearly, listen and feel the spiritual world as real as the world we live in.
However, everything remained low profile, I maintained my skills in a very personal way, and I dedicated myself to different things. I studied communication and I did a master in public relations, I dedicated myself to journalism, corporate communications and opened my own video production company. But nothing seemed to work.
For more than 10 years, I went from one stumbling block to another. I felt a great need to do something else, to contribute, to heal, to love, and my energy was getting stronger, the more I resisted working with the spirits, a force within me pushed me harder to attend to my purpose.
For several years I suffered from anxiety because I did not know what to do with everything I felt, saw and heard. It took me several years to discover myself little by little, reading about the experiences of other people with the same abilities and developing my gifts.
All with the help of my spiritual guide, the Archangel Michael, who entered my life when one of my aunts, before dying, gave me a figure of Saint Michael and told me that I should have that image. At that time I did not understand why he was telling me, but over time I understood that he was preparing me for this and that he has never left me alone. He has done innumerable miracles in my life and he is the one who is by my side during each reading.
It has been a way of spiritual growth, of recognising the unconditional love that exists in me to give light to others, but above all of a lot of faith and trust in the divinity and in myself.
The big change began with a miracle, while my video production company inexplicably collapsed, I asked the Blessed Mother to show me the way, I asked her what they wanted from me, and I asked her to take everything out of my life. what was not for me and show me where I had to go, and what was my place.
Hours later, a medal appeared on my right leg, and the image of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal was engraved. From that moment, everything began to fit in its place.
After closing the company, I received a call from Balboa Press, to tell me that they wanted to publish my book. But, I had not written any books, and I had not contacted Balboa Press either. After listening to the person of the editorial for more than an hour, I agreed to write a book although I had no idea about what.
When I closed the call, I asked them to guide me and I started writing that same day. Two and a half months later the final manuscript of “You Are Not Alone” was ready for the publication process.
In the process, I certified as a spiritual counsellor and I did a Ph.D. in Metaphysical Psychology, because I wanted to add value to what I do. I created and designed my website, my social networks and I started doing what my spirits told me, and in less than a year my career as a medium began to take off.
After the book, came the consultations, which have been growing every day, as well as the opportunity to travel to the United States to give talks and be in contact with so many wonderful people. Right now, I am where I never imagined I could be and I wake up every day grateful for the love and guidance I receive from the divinity and the opportunity to help and serve through my gifts.
What does a typical day look like for you?
Very normal! After preparing my daughter for school, I usually take a moment to be with myself, I meditate, pray and ask for guidance for the day. Then I light my altar, take a shower, have breakfast and prepare for the readings that I have scheduled for the day. I take time to prepare content for social media and the blog, I give follow up to people that I have consulted to know how they are progressing, I prepare special works to help people who request it. And the rest of the day, I go to the supermarket, I pay the bills, I share with my relatives, I take my daughter to swimming lessons, and I take care of what she needs and of course, there is always time to play with the barbies.
Although every day is different, that is what I usually do on a daily basis.
What sparked your interest to pursue a career in mediumship?
More than a career is my life purpose, I see it as who I am and that is what I have to give while I am alive. Although I avoided to do it publicly for so many years, I understood that I am here to serve the divine and help people. The joy I feel every time I see someone getting their life back or healing or achieving what they were looking for after reading, is incomparable.
And to see manifested divine love every day, not only in my life but in the lives of so many people, is what motivates me to move forward and to feel sure that I am on the right path. I want people to know that they are not alone, that there is always a solution and that this solution comes from the spiritual world that always acts with love and compassion on our behalf.
Now, you don’t just offer the typical mediumship readings, you also offer the remedies, tools and the knowledge that your clients need to thrive within their career fields. What methods are you using to do so?
It depends on what the person needs and the guidance that my spirits give me, I can help in different ways. In addition to readings, I do counselling and coaching, using metaphysical and spiritual methods.
And with spiritual guidance I help raise energetic blocks, to open the channels of abundance, love, professional career, health. Many times, we don’t understand why, in spite of the effort we make, things simply seem stagnant, and what most people don’t know is that we have the help of the spiritual kingdom so that our life flows in love, harmony, and prosperity.
What are the common misconceptions about mediumship?
There’s a huge taboo around spiritism and mediumship. First able, I think is a misconception of it in general.
In one hand, there is a fear that comes from religious formations in general, mediumship is seen as something negative, something that is called into question, and people are afraid to look for this help because they feel that they are doing something wrong or condemnable. I understand that one is not better than the other, it is faith, it is doing good. There shouldn’t be discrimination between any belief when the common denominator is a God of love.
On the other hand, as in all areas of life, there are great mediums and spiritualists but there are also people who use it in a negative way and crea a distrust of people towards these gifts. The lack of truthful and accurate information, as well as an openness of society towards these gifts, I understand that they are a great challenge for those who seek to help and use mediumship for the welfare of others.
Where can you see yourself within the next 5 years and how are you planning to grow or diversify?
Professionally, I see myself helping as much people as I can, delivering the message of love and compassion that comes from the divine. I am always being guided toward new opportunities and what next steps to take.
Within five years I see myself as the international carrier of the message I have received since I can remember: you are not alone. And with this, we teach about unconditional love, compassion and the importance of opening ourselves to the guidance we receive from the spiritual kingdom to live a fuller and happier life.
I plan to continue expanding not only the help through readings as a medium and counselling, but also expanding my spiritual talks not only within the United States and the Dominican Republic but also to other countries.
My book ‘You Are Not Alone’ is on its way to being published in Spanish. And this year I am working on my next book, in which I will talk about love, and it will be published in 2020.
I am taking the first steps in a line of perfumes and essential oils focused on cleaning and elevating energy, in line with what we want to manifest.
And, I leave the doors open for those unexpected opportunities that may appear in my life.
What avenues are you exploring to promote your services and gain potential clients?
The face to face with my talks, allow me to approach people, share and create a friendly moment. That they know me, know what I do in a more personal way, and share my story so people can relate and know they are not alone in their own battles.
Until recently, I was doing everything by myself, but I understood that it was time to form a team to take the message to more people and expand. So, right now, that’s what I am working on.
Number one rule in business you stick by?
Love and serve. Is what you give, what you have to offer, what makes you unique and how you treat others. If you feel fulfilment and joy doing what you do, that the energy that you transmit becomes your seal.
How do you define your own success?
To feel so much joy, love and gratitude for what I do, for the results I see in each person, and the satisfaction of adding value to people’s lives, gives me peace and fulfilment, and I believe that success goes beyond fame and money, is feeling fulfilled inside and live every day in peace, love and harmony.
What does #BEYOUROWN mean to you?
To be your true self, BEYOUROWN is to be true to yourself, is to use your light to illuminate not only your path but the path of others. It is having the confidence and courage to know you can walk your own way, even if it means going against what is established and creating your own rules, as long as it is done from the heart, with compassion and loving intentions.
Finally, what are you working on throughout 2019?
Create a team that will help me expand and establish myself even more. The publication of my book ‘You Are Not Alone’ in Spanish and have at least the first manuscript of my second book ready, before the end of the year. And of course, receive with gratitude the opportunities that come my way this year.
