I first met Lou Martin circa 2002 during a trip to Sedona, Arizona with my husband, Ted Dylewski. We stopped into a metaphysical store that advertised readings and that’s where we met and had a joint reading with Lou. I still have the notes from that reading, and from subsequent phone readings, which I look back at with awe at least once a year. Lou is a Channeler, Intuitive, Spiritual Teacher, Metaphysical Blogger, and Healer, whom I have shared with many of my friends over the years…and today, I am beyond thrilled to introduce him to you, my wonderful Readers:
Sherri: Hi Lou! Thank you so much for being part of this column and sharing with us today. Will you tell us a little bit about how you got started on your own personal journey?
Lou: Thank you, Sherri! I had three life-changing events which got me on this spiritual journey. The first was by sitting with Krishnamurti when I was 16 years old. His presence, (and later his books) were profound and told me there was much more to life than what I’d seen. Secondly, when I was 18, my Father was murdered, which although terrible at the time, his death opened me up to a lot of soul-searching and willingness to connect with Spirit to heal my grief. Thirdly, I had what the Yogi’s call a spontaneous Kundalini awakening during meditation before I turned 30, which showed me that what I’d been dreaming about, meaning living my life as spiritual adventure, was now possible as Spirit is real!
Sherri: I’m so sorry about what happened to your Dad, Lou; and while I know that many of us have awakenings during times of profound grief, it doesn’t make the loss any easier. You know, when I think about my readings with you, the thing that sticks out the most in my mind is the direct channel to the Pleiadians that you provided. It was so cool to be able to speak directly with your Pleiadian connection. Will you share with us a little bit about your work with the Pleiadians and how you came to connect with them?
Lou: The Pleiadians are a loving and wise energy, who have opened us up to exciting new ideas and ways of looking at reality! When I am working energetically, intuitively or verbally I’m channelling their energy of Spirit and it helps me to rediscover the space for unconditional love within, which is the core of all healing. Most of us don’t see how distracted or disconnected from our true selves we can become. I forget and remember all day long! Ha! The great gift of working with Spirit is learning you can always ask for help…which I do!
It’s really time in our world for humanity’s spiritual awakening, and there are so many wonderful enlightened teachers who can/will help us to remember who we really are--like you dear Sherri! But teachers cannot do it for us, and I want to help all who feel called to heal or teach or channel to come into their power and fly. As with artistic skills, these are skills that anyone can learn; and when we heal, we find our gifts and follow our hearts!
Sherri: Will you please tell us a little bit about your healing work?
Lou: Working with Spirit is a privilege and a joy, where I get to remember daily that we are safe, loved and supported; and that at our core, we are love & life itself. The great shift that’s happening right now is the deep turning within to see the God inside each of us! I'll do a reading with cards, to help open clients to their deeper selves and trust the messages. When we’ve touched on two or three topics and cried and laughed a bit, moved a bit of pain and fear out of the way, then I'll channel my Guides to co-create a map for their highest future. Healing is the most fun thing in the world because you’re giving people back to themselves. It’s mostly about trusting and opening, Spirit does the work.
Sherri: I know that as busy as you are, you are still offering readings; and I see that you’re facilitating a lot of interesting classes and workshops. I also know that you relocated to Ireland a few years ago. How can folks contact you for a reading, and is it possible to take your workshops online?
Lou: So you can easily find me and my teachings at Lou Martin on Google+ or Awakening Into The Light on Facebook, or Into The Mystic on Blogspot & lightheart2012 on Youtube, Soundcloud, Tumblr, and Twitter (Note from Sherri: See links at the end of this column). I do life-changing, soul-stirring comic light sessions via Skype, phone, or email. The moment when you decide is when the session begins. I also have a guided meditation on Youtube that you can listen to at no charge. It's called the Temple of Love meditation, and it's everyone's favourite meditation on my CD. This is the journey into the heart, and it's a joy and a healing to open and remember how loved we really are! You will journey into self and work with grounding and raising your vibration, then merge with Higher Self and come home to the heart of Spirit, the Temple of Love.
Sherri: That's great! I can't wait to listen to that meditation! Lou, some of my Readers are already well into their journey and some are just putting their first foot forward on their path. If there is one piece of advice you could give folks to help them move forward, what would that be?
Lou: I'll quote my Guides:
The Rise of the Divine Feminine has called you forth to be her eyes and arms, her voice and strength for a world now being born, because you understand the Divine balance on the planet now between the light and the dark, the past and the future, the man and the woman. There are energies which create and build, which love and heal, and there are those in your world which appear and attempt to do the opposite. Their time is ending as yours begins. You truly are a consciously, loving, spiritual being! So please answer the invitation, rise to the challenge and meet the requirement…for love and healing from your true self! Learn to listen, trust and follow your own inner guidance, through the love and peace in your heart. It is there, but you must reach for it. Your world has forgotten this truth, that all begins within. But you are awake and awakening. That is why you are reading our words. There is joy and happiness waiting to be discovered and set free with in YOU! Give yourself to life and love every day! Trust the feedback to set you free. You are Sovereign, you are Divine, you are Enough! You are more than you dare imagine! Be at Peace and in the oneness of love: Know that we will meet again!! Peace and Blessings, Namaste!
Lou: This is the most powerful time of awakening and healing ever seen on the Earth! We are truly ready to SHINE! It's a joy and a blessing for me to share the gifts and tools that Spirit has shared with me! Peace and Blessings to All!
Sherri: Thank you, Lou! I wholeheartedly agree with what you've said regarding teachers, and I have dedicated the last several years of my life to helping folks understand that teachers are great, books are great, and workshops are great; but in order to move forward, we have to personally take action. My mantra for 2013 is that everyone deserves direct communication with Spirit, and I know how hard you are working to make this so for those you work with.
Dear Readers, what a treat: Lou gave us a link to a site where we can download his most popular meditaiton for free, and he shared guidance and wisdom from his Guides with us. A very good day! Namaste.
