Bob Olson: What label or
description do you give yourself when a stranger asks
what you do for work?
I tell them I help people...LOL, (I used to say I was a
phone sex operator, but that only led to far more
complicated questions lol). I am a professional psychic,
author, healer and channel. I specialize in giving
insight, guidance, and empowerment. My job is to inspire
others to know their highest truths and to
remember, even if only in glimpses, the Truth about who
they are and why they came here.
I was born under the Mayan astrological sign of the Cib
(keeb). Those born with this birth print have highly
attuned intuition and serve as galactic conduits for
Divine communication from Spirit. Cibs excel in giving
enlightened advice, and in making good judgments for
others. Somehow I don't think the folks at the Internal
Revenue Service would be enthused or understanding about
seeing "Galactic Conduit" listed as a
I see inside a situation, and offer new perspective on
why things are the way they are and what shifts need to
happen to facilitate change and growth.
Bob Olson: When did you first recognize that you
had this gift?
Laura Scott: When I was very young, I was seeing,
hearing, feeling, and knowing things that those around
me were not. But being psychic and empathic in a
family of younger souls was pretty confusing; it caused
a lot of turmoil for me as a child...my God-given
abilities of 'knowing too much' made the adults in my
life pretty uncomfortable. I learned to keep much of
what I knew close to myself.
I became "broken open" as a result of
traumatic events in my twenties: First, I fell 1,000%
head over heels in love and got married. This was a big
catalyst to a whole new wave of 'knowing', AND for the
first time in my life I felt safe and encouraged to be
myself. Also during this time, I went through a
number of life altering events-- 2 car accidents, a
brush with cancer, and more. Then, as I turned 30 my
beloved husband had a breakdown, and overnight my world
was turned upside down and everything changed.
As I made my way through that dark time, grieving, I
struggled to reconcile what I knew psychically with the
earthly reality thrust upon me. For a while I was
in shock--mad at God; but I couldn't maintain it for
long. A deep and profound spiritual awakening
began taking place inside of me. I had to navigate
through my own painful soul lessons of grief, free will,
heartache and loss...miraculously...I found myself
beginning to fill with a sense of peace, and calm.
I had an unshakable knowing that out of this
situation...something important and good would come.
And it did. I began to understand my soul's purpose, and
my responsibility to be available to it. With
time, my grieving and loss got replaced by something
much bigger. I met The Committee--a group of
Higher Ascended Beings on the Other Side who work in
service of God--and realized I was beginning the next
phase of my journey. One that would take me to
un-thought of places, and on yet to be imagined
adventures. I would travel it with Them as a
In retrospect, coming out of grief was like slowly
waking up from a dream. As the veil lifted, my
gifts became so undeniable that I got myself out of the
way, and 'came out.' Ironically, none of my friends were
surprised...they said they had been pumping me for
information for years, and...what took me so long?! It
seems they could see the Universe calling me to step out
into the limelight long before I could... All my life,
people would naturally gravitate towards me, and look to
me for help, leadership and insight. Now I understand
Bob Olson: When did you
begin doing this work professionally?
Laura Scott: Over 15 years
Bob Olson: Have you had any
formal training or instruction for this work?
Laura Scott: Mostly, I am
blessed to be "a natural."
I am also quite an old soul. Over the years, I've known
various practicing psychics and light workers from
around the world, some of whom became friends, teachers
and mentors along the way, and others who inadvertently
taught by poor example. They are all part of the
tapestry that is me...out of every experience, be it
positive or negative, I learned more about how to be
I respect that others in this profession may need to
study prodigiously, equally as much as I respect that
for those like myself, knowing is knowing. period.
Bob Olson: What other
educational degrees, certifications or learned skills do
you have that help you in this work?
Laura Scott: The
School of Life as an active, ongoing 24/7
education...each day I am learning more about my own
journey, and the journey of others. The day I stop
learning is the day I go Home.
I am highly studied and skilled in the empowerment
areas... meditation, affirmations, intuition, energy
healing, Lessons of Earth School, Universal Laws, and
more. I also volunteer with souls in trouble, do private
readings and channeling, webinars, podcasts, private and
For those that need some letters, I have a BFA, am
certified in Health Intuition, Bac Flower
Counseling, and an experienced Reiki Master/Teacher.
I am the expert author of The Complete Idiot's Guide to
Divining the Future, have an award winning meditation
CD, along with several other mediation CD's, divination
cards and professional journal products I created.
In addition to readings, I also offer Distance Clearing
& Energy Healing work, Life Mentoring, Bach Flower
consultations, clearing sprays, and teach Reiki.
Bob Olson: What is your intention or motivation
for doing this work?
Laura Scott: To
help others...helping someone be empowered is a
beautiful thing! That is what this time of Ascension is
all about! As an old soul and master healer, I assist
people on the next steps in their natural
journey...whether that's about helping a client
understand how to let go, or to see inside a situation
to form a better choice, or aiding them to shift into
peace...it varies. Once you have had enough confirmation
from the Other Side that life is a continuum, the next
step of Ascension is to start approaching your daily
life with a deeper understanding, awareness and
insights. I love assisting and inspiring others
Bob Olson: What do you find
most fulfilling about this work that you do?
Laura Scott: Knowing that people trust me with
their big and small questions in life, and that they can
count on me and my office to treat them with respect,
understanding, and without judgment. Hearing from those
who's lives I've touched is rewarding...it's an honor to
help folks gain peace and progress. The sound of
expanding consciousness is like no other!
Bob Olson: How long do your readings last and why
did you choose this length of time?
Laura Scott: 30 or 60 minutes typically.......but
longer or shorter as needed. People have time sensitive
matters these days and want to get help faster and for
shorter lengths of time. My office understands this and
makes the process very easy. We are here when you need
us and happy to help however we can.
Bob Olson: What can one expect during a normal
reading with you?
Laura Scott: Clients
can expect professionalism, privacy and great customer
service from our office. They can pay online at my
website or call our office directly....my assistant does
a wonderful job helping folks get their appointment set
up swiftly and easily. We minimize wait times whenever
possible. Client sessions take place by phone
appointment and are recorded using state of the art
technology, then emailed.
I'm a skilled, talented professional with over 15 years
and thousands of client readings from around the
world... I am also a very old soul and on my last
earthly journey here. My next work will be as a Master
on The Other Side.
Clients read their
prepared questions to me and I address them. They can
ask about anything or anyone... health issues,
relationships, investments, choices,...or the
esoteric...whatever is on their mind...it runs a big
spectrum...and is always treated with the utmost respect
A question about one area may lead to new insight and
understanding about why they have chosen the situation
they did, their role or life themes playing out, past
lives they've had dealing with this previously, and what
they are working on in a broader sense now during
Ascension to learn more about themselves. Tips on
how to improve or navigate a situation will come
Because I am a channel, readings are like dreams to me.
Although I sound "conversational"... I am
actually quite altered and will have little memory of
what just took place. I am listening to my client,
our guides, and The Committee, and even loved ones and
Angels...then relaying the information. If The Committee
wants to interact directly, my voice and consciousness
alter further. Channeling requires a lot of mutual trust
and cooperation...and it's my job to allow information
The Committee always comes through with much love,
respect and understanding. They are neither solely
male or female in nature. In person, you would see
my face twitching or me rocking back and forth during
deeper trance channel work. None of this hurts or
effects me, it is merely how the channel stays open.
They will often answer a question by posing a larger
question back. Sometimes They will not answer a
question as asked until you restate it clarifying what
it is you really want to know. Many feel a strong
powerful presence when The Committee appears, and often
feel deeply moved by this.
Clients get answers, tools and homework suggestions
ranging from channeled affirmations, to bodily advice,
to humor and more. It runs the gamut. This is why
recordings are so important...by the end of a session,
clients may feel "lit up like a Christmas
tree" and they can return to that healing place
anytime by listening to my voice on their recording.
Having an mp3 of your session is a tool to reach for
over and over again, and each time you play it, you may
glean something more!
We may laugh, or cry together in a phone session....and
I will pull off as much stress as I possibly can so that
you leave ready for the next steps of your journey.
Who comes to you for readings?
Laura Scott: My client base spans from known
political figures to professional athletes,
entertainment figures, CEO's, doctors, lawyers, other
metaphysical practitioners, college students,
grandparents, 'regular folks' just like yourself and
your next door neighbors! Each one of my clients
receives the same dedication and care...along with
Bob Olson: How is a reading with you
"similar" to what people see on TV when John
Edward gives a reading on his show "Crossing Over
With John Edward?"
Laura Scott: Loved
ones you know may touch in closely or observe during
your session. Loved ones will often relay the ways in
which they are trying to connect, and quip in with
comments, phrases etc.
Bob Olson: How is a reading
with you "different" to what people see on TV
when John Edward gives a reading on his show
"Crossing Over With John Edward?"
Laura Scott: My work is a few steps beyond
confirmation of the afterlife. Relatives or loved ones
may come through, but this is rarely the sole point of
our sessions. Along with my guides & yours,
loved ones, and angels, I channel a group called The
Committee. The Committee is a group of Higher Ascended
Beings on the Other Side who work in service of God.
They come together from beyond the Pleiades to offer
insight and understanding for our soul growth. They are
very interested in supporting folks through this time of
I tend to get full amounts of information, more like the
whole story or several chapters in a story, versus
disassociated fragments of words, sentences or imagery.
If it is relevant, there may also be extensive past life
information shared, health information, as well as
suggestions for 'homework' to help keep a person moving
with more balance. I also have the ability to see
ways that will improve a client's emotional or soul
situation at a glance. I work more deeper into the
patterns, often covering energy of a client's present,
past and future experiences. I connect the dots and
weave things together.
Bob Olson: What instructions do you give new
clients before a reading?
Laura Scott: My
office does a good job helping clients prepare. Make a
list of specific questions that you would like
assistance with. Feel free to prioritize it. Ask
anything...from health to relationship issues,
philosophical questions, work matters, investment
opportunities, meeting your guides, any current
situations you seeking clarity on in your life. If you
ask simply, "how am I doing?" or "what do
you see" without fail the guides will answer
"fine," or ask you "about what
specifically." They provide answers based on your
willingness to form specific questions.
If it is meant for you to know, you will know. If not,
you will usually get other pertinent soul instruction.
Understand that you are an integral part of this sacred
process, and if you approach your session with an open
heart and mind things will go smoothly. Readings take
place over the phone (and sometimes via email) for
clientele who live all over the US and far beyond
Bob Olson: Is there anything about your gift or
abilities that is unique from most other psychics or psychic mediums?
Laura Scott: My
work is quite unique because I am a channel working
directly with a group of Ascended Masters, called The
Committee. They come, along with your guides and mine,
to assist you on your life journey. Although I am
a published author, and creator of several cds, card
deck and journaling tools....I do not use props or tools
like cards, astrology, etc., when I work.
I focus beyond the immediate and when possible,
intertwine it into a bigger picture for you. I'll look
down the forks in the road for you and break down the
pros and cons of upcoming choices. My readings tend to
be more like a full story. Although no two readings are
ever alike, there is typically a beginning, a middle,
and an end.
If it is relevant, there may also be extensive past life
information shared, health scan information, as well as
suggestions for 'homework' to help keep a person moving
forward with more confidence. I pull off as much stress
and balance as much energetically as I can during
readings, typically leaving clients feeling more
uplifted, and ready for what is coming ahead.
Bob Olson: If you do
events, seminars, workshops, lectures or retreats, tell
us about them. What are they like, how often do you do
them and how do people benefit from attending them?
Laura Scott: I teach, speak
and make radio appearances on topics that help the soul.
Things like: Ascension, Attraction, Affirmations,
Universal Laws, Meditation, Manifesting, Energy Shifts,
Healing and more. Participants get an up close look at
my insight, humor and candor as I teach, and empower.
Often they remark on how down-to-earth I am, and my warm
sense of humor.
I've done a lot of private events in recent years,
tailoring events to specific groups. We also have
webinars, podcasts and free meditations on my website.
Channeling takes a different amount of life energy than
intuitiveness, mediumship or psychic abilities...and
similar to how Edgar Cayce was told to balance out his
workload, so too have I. Therefore I am forced to pace
If you are interested in finding out more about
organizing an event in your area, you can contact my
assistant through the info on my website. Lately, I have
done a lot privately in New England, Atlanta and
Orlando. I am always happy to receive invitations and
offers, although regrettably, I cannot accept them all.
Bob Olson: Do you do phone
readings, in person readings or both?
Laura Scott: I do phone readings predominantly,
along with email readings, and do in person work at
private events or prearranged weekends.
I also publish an
inspirational newsletter, so be sure to sign up at my
website! It's a great intimate and fun tool I do each
month for free.
Bob Olson: How does one
contact you to set up an appointment for a reading?
Laura Scott: Through
my website, or by phone. My lovely assistant Maria does
a wonderful job of getting folks set up and on the
calendar swiftly. Contact her via email: firstname.lastname@example.org,
at my website: www.ancientstardust.com
or by phone: 1-866-897-1504 (toll-free).
Is it true you spent over a decade swimming with
dolphins in the wild, and taking clients on retreats?
Laura Scott: Guilty as charged! I would
spent a few months each year in the Bahamas enjoying the
high energy places Edgar Cayce channeled about off
Bimini... enjoying the wild free dolphins, sting rays,
sea turtles and more. When it's time to return there
again, we will announce it on my website and in my
Bob Olson: Is there
anything you would like people to know about you or your
gift that we have not yet discussed?
Laura Scott: People
ask me why I call myself a channel for healing.
After all, it does sound just a tad ostentatious.
Well, first and foremost, because this is what my own
guides and The Committee regularly refer to me as.
Secondly because over and over again I was told this by
many people, psychics, psychic mediums and channels who
through varying degrees of "Serendipity" would
wind their way across my path as I was unfolding.
At first I felt
awfully uncomfortable owning this moniker. I
thought, "who am I to say can heal
anything?" Believe me, I asked myself over and
over. But just when I would talk myself out of ever even
considering it, another person would reach out to thank
me for my presence in their life, or for my insightful
words. It began to get ridiculous...remember I
told you that everyone knew it but me before I 'came
I still laugh about this and shake my head.
Finally, it became clear: I am not saying that I can
heal anything. Only God and the individual involved have
the inside track on that. What I am saying is that
I allow myself to work as a conduit, or a catalyst for
healing to occur. I've learned that healing is so much
more than my own limited, initial, earthly, assumptions.
Healing is another Universal Word for progress. It
is not capable of being quantified by earthly gadgets or
measuring systems. It is about letting in
flickering bits of realizations and Truths that move you
to new levels both here, and beyond. This is how
the Universe defines healing--as a form of progress.
Healing of the soul involves balancing and integrating
the mind, body and spirit. And this is what I show
up for every day: to help teach, inspire, and encourage
people to do it.
