The main feature of our new Autumn 2021 issue is an interview with none other than Lorie Ladd! Lorie is a fantastic communicator and teacher on all things ascension, so it was an honour to speak with her. Enjoy a sneak peek of our conversation below.
Bringing Galactic Wisdom to Earth
A conversation with Lorie Ladd
by Aisling Cronin
Interviewer: Paul Congdon
Lorie Ladd is a spiritual teacher, speaker, and author who has dedicated herself to guiding humanity through our collective and individual evolution in consciousness.
From the age of thirteen, Lorie knew that she had been born to assist humanity, though she didn’t know exactly what form that would take. In 1995, whilst attending a workshop in Mount Shasta, California, she was shown what her role would be. She saw that she was on Earth to assist humanity through its physical shift in awareness, also known as our great awakening.
Nowadays, her teachings focus on integrating the human experience with the quantum field, understanding ascension, living in higher states of consciousness, and embodying one’s sovereignty. She cut through the apparent complexity of human evolution and grounds it into simple and digestible concepts.
Recently, our publisher Paul Congdon had the chat to speak to Lorie about the era of awakening that continues to unfold on our planet.
I first came across your work in early 2020, when I watched a ten-minute video from you that really calmed me down, even in the midst of all the global chaos! I think this is one of the things you do amazingly well: you help people to see things from a very broad, much higher perspective.
Thank you! I’m honoured to know that my work has reached people in that way.
It would be great to learn more about how it all began for you. Can you tell us about your experiences in Mount Shasta?
I had two really profound experiences in Mount Shasta – the first one happened when I visited for the first time, and the second one happened after I was guided to move there.
I’ve always lived in California, and Mount Shasta is in California. It holds some very powerful frequencies. It holds the power of New Earth. It has a ‘home’ type energy: it feels like home to me. In 1995, when I was in college, I went to Mount Shasta for a five-day retreat on ascension. It was the very first time I had been energetically guided into the heart of the mountain, so I was able to experience what was being held within it. I started to tap into light beings, galactics, ascended masters … and I had a profound awareness that something major was happening in Mount Shasta, but I didn’t know what it was.
Twenty years later, in 2015, I went back and had another experience during which my guides told me, ‘hey Lorie, it’s been twenty years – you need to get going and start doing your work.’ I came back to San Francisco – still working in private equity – and quit my job about a year later. I started doing my spiritual work online: offering sessions and channelling ascended masters and things like that.
At this point, my guides told me ‘you need to move to Mount Shasta. ASAP.’ I was startled by that guidance, but I did it! And in Mount Shasta, for about a year and half, I was put into a kind of ‘spiritual bootcamp’. Every single day, I would practise connecting to higher dimensional beings. I went through a dark night of the soul and cleared out a lot of old trauma … but more than anything else, that experience initiated me into opening myself up to receive higher dimensional information that was coming through. I needed to learn how to translate that information into words so that I could teach and share.
I wanted to ask you a bit about your connection with the Galactic Federation. Who are they and how has your connection with them developed over the years?
I first connected with the Galactic Federation in October of 2018. I had been channelling for a while at that point, and I’d heard of the Federation, but had never connected with them. When I was in Macchu Picchu, they finally came in and helped me to energetically ‘download’ a book that I ended up writing in just one day. They were with me from that point forward.
What they have shared with me is that Earth is a consciousness, just like you and I are a consciousness. She chose to move into a physical form that we call the planet, and she has guides that have assisted her throughout her whole journey. Those guides are the Galactic Federation of Light. They’re very hands-on with this whole experience – what I’ve seen is that they have many councils, filled with hundreds of light beings who all have a different role to play in assisting Earth with her ascension process. They are right by her side through all of it. They are right by humanity’s side. They honour and understand free will.
How does this tie in with starseeds such as Andromedans, Pleiadians or Sirians? What is their role on the planet at this time?
It depends on what your definition of starseed is, but let’s just say that a starseed is here to pull humanity into higher states of consciousness. It’s important not to get too hung up on ‘what kind of starseed am I, where do I come from’ – questions like that – because the thing is, all of us are from some other place. None of us are from Earth.
We all come from another place – or another level of consciousness, if you will. No one is originally from this planet. So if you feel that you are resonating with a star system like Andromeda or Sirus, then it is likely that you originate from that consciousness. You dropped in from that star system, and if you’re remembering that here on Earth, it’s a signal that you are here now to help lift humans into a higher state of consciousness.
I don’t recommend getting super specific around that, though, because you can end up lost in a very restrictive paradigm of figuring out ‘which starseed am I,’ or get very attached to the answer needing to be one thing or another … and when you attach to it, you’re going to lose the magic of what’s in the here and now.
What’s really important is that you are here, now, to unravel the dominant paradigm and bring in a higher way of living.
