it’s Laura Fredrickson in the Institute of True Wealth. I'm actually here in Minnesota of all places; I haven't been here in about 10 years.
I'm here visiting my aunt and celebrating my heritage, my history. I'm here at the Viking festival today and now it doesn't seem like it, I just left all the chaos to come and record this video, but yeah, I'm here at the Viking festival really celebrating my Viking heritage. Prepping myself for my trip to Norway next month and religious feeling nostalgic, and also bit sentimental thinking about all of the people that have come before me that have forged their way through their own personal challenges.
Literally my great great great grandfather was ****Ericsson one of the original pioneers who literally crossed the Atlantic Ocean with such an incredible spirit and such a incredible devotion to adventure, that he was willing to risk his life. And I think about all of my relatives and all of my ancestors that have, once again, gone through whatever challenges they've gone through, and I'm so grateful for the adventurous spirit that I have, and for my ability to navigate change and to operate in the state of trust.
And I really want to I encourage everybody to celebrate your life embrace all that has come before you. I know we have a tendency to really judge our experiences and judge our past and judge ourselves for what we could have done differently, or what maybe could have been different. And just really I truly feel with all of my heart that everything that has come before is been on purpose, has been for us, and it's definitely an integral element; everything that's come before is an aspect of what is and forms the unique beings that we are, and so just remember there's no one like you on this planet: never has been and never will be.
So embrace yourself, embrace our ancestors, embrace your life and I'm sending so much love to each and every single one of you from Minnesota.
Until next time.

After I found out that my parents had evaded taxes, and that they were supposed to go to the court system and they had told me that they’d made a vow; that they were going to kill themselves and were never going to go under the court system or pay their taxes, I heard a really incredible conversation that my dad was having with my boyfriend at the time and my boyfriend was saying to my dad “How can you be so incredibly selfish, and mess Laura up for the rest of her life, commit suicide and leave her?”
And my dad said, “Who’s more selfish? Us for wanting to end our lives the way that we want to end our lives and leave this planet when we want to leave this planet or her for wanting us to stay here when we don’t want to be here any longer?”
I felt like the opportunity is about true acceptance and about really being present with someone and their experience, and honoring their experience exactly how it’s unfolding.
I felt like it’s a dance to definitely encourage without going into convincing to be really attuned to where someone is in their life experience, and for some people it may absolutely be the time for them to transition and for them to let go; and so the greatest gift you can give to a loved one is to be present and to be available for them.
To have their experience exactly how their having their experience; there is no grater gift than to love someone exactly where they are.
What an incredible time to be alive. I am eternally grateful for my journey and experiences. My soul contract has often been an intense one, but never once have I felt that my signature was forged.
As I look out and acknowledge the vast blessings that are before me now, I reflect on my darkest moments when I felt I couldn’t go on- being on the brink of suicide, destitute, alone, penniless and pointless.
It was during these intimate moments of despair that I encountered the impenetrable light that is always in the recesses of our unimaginable hardships, awaiting , activated when we feel we can’t take another moment.
It is ironically within this darkness, that we can illuminate the illusion that we have been abandoned, and realize we can never truly be deserted by the love that has birthed us into existence.
In these moments of despair – we surrender, and In “giving up” we GIVE IN to the profound creative force that is governing our lives. We begin to acknowledge that this energy is not outside of us and separate, but rather within us, AS US.
From this state of renewed awareness, we can then choose to become the embodiment – a walking temple of Divine Co-creation, symbolizing this Ultimate Union with love, harmony and trust in our everyday lives.
