“It’s all divine all the time.”
Laurie Grant discovered her metaphysical and healing abilities thirty-seven years ago when she spontaneously began getting clear, accurate premonitions. She mastered her gifts and, in 1980, began teaching psychic awareness classes and offering personal consultations, including channeled readings by theSource, hypnotherapy, past life therapy, art therapy, and Reiki.
During this time, Laurie directed three holistic health centers, served as a medical intuitive for physicians and other health professionals, and became a New Age television and radio personality, appearing as the featured speaker at national health expos. In 2000, Laurie rediscovered the healing tradition of ancient Hawaiian times, which is called Ancient Rainbow Conscious Healing (ARCH). Laurie now focuses on writing books and teaching workshops to assist people in developing their intuitive and healing abilities for spiritual growth. In 2003, Laurie spontaneously went into a state of oneness non-duality, which the Buddhists call “The Highest Level of Enlightenment.” In this state, Laurie is privileged to see beyond the illusion of separation to experience us all as one. Laurie has a master’s degree in art therapy and is a kahuna, hypnotherapist, and reiki master teacher. She also has studied acupressure, oriental medicine, tai chi, qigong, massage, and yoga.
Q What experiences put you on your spiritual path?
A. I grew up dyslexic in a family of PhDs. This circumstance forced me to use my intuition to get through school and earn a master’s degree. When I was twenty, I started receiving accurate premonitions, e.g., my boyfriend’s uncle having a fatal heart attack, my acquaintances getting into a car accident, etc. Since these insights were mostly negative, I tried to erase them from my mind. When I couldn’t, I sought guidance from psychics. The first one said this intuitive gift was my destiny. I would use it to teach thousands of people around the world. The second one taught me how to control it so it did not control me.
Q. Who are your mentors? What have you learned from them?
A. Twenty years ago, the water got shut off at a hotel at which I was teaching. The other hotel guests and I went across the street to get something to eat at a diner. As I sat at the diner’s counter, a man came in and said to the cook, “We need to shut your water off for the next four hours.” Instead of panicking, the woman replied, “Okay, but first fill all the buckets you can find with water.” Then she returned to her singing and cooking. Most people would have panicked with a restaurant full of people and no running water. She didn’t. Instead, she chose the best option available and life went on. Her response is a model for how to deal with life’s challenges. The Dalai Lama also is an inspiration in how he handles his role and lives in peace, regardless of what goes on in the world. Gandhi, too, had great impact on me.
