Lake Tahoe Enchantment Etched in My Heart Always

laurabruno:

Tahoe Love! I carry Tahoe in my heart always, as well. Thank you, Tania, for sharing this beauty.

From the Land Down Under

Two emails have come through from two separate readers from Australia:

The first comes from reader Maggie:

Hi Laura,

Perhaps you remember me from Australia.. I enjoy your posts so much, thank you!! I’m hoping you will post this on your blog.

There was a siege in a city coffee shop in Sydney Australia, where one man seemingly held several people hostage. People were killed including that man, but I don’t know the details because I just can’t get too deeply into details of these types of stories. The truth is never stated of course. However there was a phenomenal response to the situation which had the potential to incite violent reactions against Muslim people in this county. The link below shows what happened instead via twitter. (I’d say the agenda backfired here !! )

Thank you again for your insightful research and sharing – so valuable in these shifting times.

Abundant and Blessed wishes for always,

Maggie :) <3 <3

[Laura again]: What a refreshing sign of the kind heartedness and empathy of humans for each other. Thank you for sharing this evidence of human decency amidst the war mongering.

Indeed, those vying for control have definitely hit fast forward. Racing against the awakening?! I don’t delve too deeply into the details of this kind of news either, but just on the surface, I’ve seen that they held a drill at the same location six weeks prior (always a big red flag), and apparently, part of the Matrix movie was filmed in the same cafe. Also, how convenient that it was an “Iranian” who did the deed, since despite all attempts, the West just can’t seem to garner enough support to bomb Iran. For my part, I’m sending love and calm to those who experienced the terror, grief and anger. Whether manufactured or not, if it’s happening to you, it feels remarkably similar; it just depends where that anger gets directed.

I’m also sending love and calm to the children and teachers who witnessed the horrible attack at the Pakistani school, and to their loved ones. Unlike some school shootings, this seems to have been a real attack with real victims — and again, whether politically convenient or not, if you’ve lost someone, it feels remarkably similar. May peace, comfort, compassion, and deep healing surround anyone who has lost someone they love.

This second email actually arrived first, and I’ve not posted it yet due to not having time to finish watching the video. Called “What the FUQ” (Frequently Unanswered Questions), this video describes one man’s ordeal of trying to import a car to Australia, along with all the bizarre things the process revealed via his Frequently Unanswered Questions. Sometimes, silence really is deafening.

From reader Kade:

Hi Laura – I just found this recent vid and was amazed that it brings both the issues of Government corporatism and energetic intuitive awakening. I thought you may like it.

[Laura again]: Thanks to Maggie and Kade for these updates from the Land Down Under. Sending you and anyone in that hemisphere good Summer Solstice wishes, as we prepare here for the darkest night of the year. Many blessings!

Seer’s Tea

laurabruno:

I enjoyed the challenge of collecting all these various herbs and teas — some from my own garden. I first saw this recipe on hocuspocus13.wordpress.com, and for some reason, just couldn’t stop thinking about it. I’ve settled upon drinking this as a late afternoon tea, and I do seem to be dreaming more. Plus, it’s yummy with a hint of honey — like a rich, complex beer without the alcohol. Anyway, I’m posting this here for the ladies. A number of these herbs are female hormone balancers, so I’m not sure how well it would work for men. Sweet dreams!

The essence of this blend is to calm the conscious mind and awaken the intuitive sense. As well, an aid for sleep, anxiety and divination. The recipe (for a large batch) follows.

Seer’s Tea 

tea

1 cup green rooibos
1 cup hops flowers
1 cup damiana
1/2 cup mugwort
1/2 cup chamomile
1/3 cup hibiscus flowers, lightly crushed
1/2 cup calendula flowers
2 tablespoons orange peel

Now, imagine you are the Creator, the Designer, Masterful Facilitator of All Things Possible.  As you imagine this, breathe into your heart and know that you are capable of addressing these issues in the most heart-centered way possible.  Know that you already have all the information you need.

Now, perfectly tuned into your inner genius, the God Within for divine guidance—what would you do to address the issue?

How might you speak to each of the actors in this drama on the world stage? What are some policies you might draft to support a peaceful and just resolution?

This is what’s termed a “bridge camera,” that is one between what I had before and a professional camera.

It’s so great to be able to finally capture on film what it is I see in life around Bealtaine Cottage.

Timothy Glenn ~ Uranus Square Pluto Part Six: Magical Mystery Tour

I’ve been eagerly awaiting another Uranus Square Pluto article from my friend, Astrologer Timothy Glenn. This one arrived last night, but the energies will remain in effect for a long time. I particularly love this message and think it will bring some comfort and perspective to those of you who feel life has gone completely crazy or too intense. Do remember to have some fun along Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride. As Bill Hick’s so rightly said, “It’s just a ride.” Zany Uranus always kicks the funny element up a few notches. Funny “haha,” funny “strange” or just plain “fun,” though, you decide. ;)

Here’s Timothy Glenn:

Uranus Square Pluto Part Six

Magical Mystery Tour

Beware the Ides of December – oops, we’re already here – and it’s the sixth exact square of Uranus and Pluto. The most recent exact square occurred nearly eight months ago, so you might need to do a past life regression to remember that far back into the misty past. In the interim, we have shifted around on various timelines, morphing as we go.

On a personal scale, those seven odd (indeed, exceptionally odd) months witnessed three changes in residence, a few more technology failures, missed communications, dropped communications, a couple mystery illnesses, four internet radio talk show appearances on the Fireside Chat with Zany Mystic – and a long stretch with no articles written. We can add to the list an acceptance that weird is the new normal.

A recurring question to clients has been: Is there so much as a little corner of your existence that hasn’t been turned upside down? Laura Bruno’s October 20 blog post entitled “In Case You Wondered…” began with the words “No, it’s not just you. A lot of people are really going bonkers right now.” As Uranus and Pluto square off again, you can ratchet up the bonkers phenomenon a few more notches.

Everybody’s Talkin’ at Me

The external world resembles the proverbial dragon in the throes of death. This is when the dragon is said to be most dangerous, but you can trust your spirit to guide you to avoid the thrashing tail and the occasional spurts of flame, understanding that the “dragon” is dying.

The media circus, especially the corporate propaganda machine, is vying desperately for something of yours that is of incalculable value: your attention. They intentionally hype anything they think will fill you with fear. Millions of sincere people allow their divine creative energy to by siphoned off by this fear mongering, and then unwittingly contribute to the manifestation of events they would never want to occur. Where thought goes, energy flows. The Uranus/Pluto square is currently slapping these innocent folks up alongside the head, strongly suggesting that they wake up and shift their attention and its creative power away from what does not resonate.

For example, if the governments and their media outlets beat the war drums, they will drum up energetic support by convincing the masses that there is going to be a war. When you thus have millions of unsuspecting people virtually chanting a mantra about some looming war, the divine creative power of their hijacked consciousness is channeled into manifesting the proposed conflict. Duh! Uranus is dropping a sixteen ton hint on our heads: turn the damned televisions and their programming off. Not down. Off.

Voices in the Sky

Much of the recent channeled material has been compromised, supporting one side or the other in the various conflicts being staged in the puppet show. Corporate stooges mislabeled as “leaders” are presented as potential saviors in the classic game of problem, reaction, solution. The planetary manipulators construct an array of problems: war, famine, plague, and economic stress. The goal is to generate conditions drastic enough, along with frightening threats of things getting far worse, that the people will accept a so-called “solution” that they would have categorically rejected otherwise.

The wonderful world of channeling has become a muddled mess of disorienting suggestions on how we can navigate the frothing waters of these turbulent times. Red flags fly high when these channeled sources indicate that elements of the same system that created the problem will provide the solution. Yet in the midst of the mayhem, a few clear voices can be heard. Our sense of resonance becomes of paramount importance here.

Dazed and Confused

Discernment seems to elude lots of people as our alleged reality transmutes. They are still trying to “figure it out” instead of going with the flow and keeping it simple. They haven’t figured out that their little left brains aren’t going to figure it out.

What dimension are we in?

This one.

But which timeline are we on?

This one.

And where are we?

Here.

What month is it?

This month.

But what day is it?

Today.

And what time is it?

Now.

Give It Up or Turn It Loose

Once upon a time, back in the old days, around the time of the fifth exact square of Uranus in Pluto, in the long lost spring of the ancient year of 2014, a Proterrian channeling session began with the question if any of us had been feeling a bit discombobulated lately. Were we feeling disoriented? Couldn’t get a handhold? Couldn’t get a foothold? Were we feeling unbalanced and couldn’t get grounded? Perhaps our lives could now be described as “Windows is shutting down.”

The Proterrian perspective was that we had begun physically and literally disengaging from The Matrix. The analogy from the first Matrix film involved the character Neo being removed from the tank, where his body had been used as a battery while his mind had lived in a computer-generated dream world that had been pulled over his eyes. We were asked to imagine all those tubes popping out of his body, and to consider that we were undergoing a similar process; only for us the process of disconnecting would span eternal months instead of mere seconds.

We were then reminded of channeling sessions several years ago, when Proterrian said we would come to the point that we would need to give up all external points of reference. All. Not some. Not most. Not almost all. They used the simple word “all” because all our external points of reference have been associated with The Matrix. If we truly want to enter into the New Earth, Heaven on Earth, we will center ourselves in only one point of reference, which can be found in our hearts. From there, we can create new “external” points of reference in a realm that resonates with the infinite love we truly are.

The Long and Winding Road

Sometimes it seems like an incredibly long journey, but in cosmic timing, ‘tis but a blip. And then on another level, there is no “there” to go to, and there is no tick tock reality anyway. One of the oddities of the Uranus/Pluto interaction is that Pluto takes forever to get anything done, while Uranus finishes everything in a flash.

One striking phenomenon that eventuated since the fifth exact square, is that the human collective did decide to speed up the transition. What might have taken a few decades to complete, will now require only a few years. The acceleration has thrown most folks for a loop, so of course they are feeling and acting quite loopy. But if the road to the New Earth suddenly makes a sharp turn and takes you into a wormhole…cool. Kicking and screaming won’t help.

Proterrian insists that the transition can still be achieved gracefully on all levels. Once we are acclimated to our new velocity, we might remember why we thought this roller coaster ride was a cool idea in the first place.

Watching and Waiting

And yet the human condition wants to keep asking when, when, when. It also wants to look “out there” for the signs of something being generated from within. Uranus will show you amusing perspectives, like there is no “out there” out there, so “out there” is actually “in here”. This means that the signs of the world shifting “in here” can be seen “out there”. But if you are tuning in to the corporate propaganda machine to see those signs, you are trusting the untrustworthy to show you what they are trying desperately to hide from you.

Your innate divine love and your sense of resonance will guide your awareness “out there” to see the “hidden objects” in the puzzle game. You may be pleasantly surprised to find how many of us are doing how many awesome things to help co-create Heaven on Earth.

Patience may still be the prime virtue, and procrastination can always be put off till tomorrow. Obsession with tick-tocks and with boxes on stilted, unnatural calendars might not make the recommended procedures list.

Eyes of a Child

Consciousness creates everything. What we choose to do with our consciousness will determine everything. Perhaps it would be wise to remember the words of that famous Jewish Rabbi from a couple thousand years ago: “Unless ye be as little children, ye shall not enter the Kingdom of Heaven.”

The Uranus/Pluto square is challenging everyone to open their minds to the literally infinite possibilities within us and before us. We can approach this with innocence and wonderment. Lots of us are getting downloads that our old world minds have no hope of intellectualizing. Maybe the New Earth cannot be seen through old world lenses. And perhaps taking it all too seriously would only gum up the works of something that can only be manifested through a playful heart.

Proterrian says that right here in our own little galaxy, there are millions of worlds that are created and maintained solely on the energy of play. If we follow the love in our hearts and regard everything else as entertainment, we can keep our balance through this phase of the game.

A Lovely Police Story from Alabama

Thanks to Rumor Mill News for this one, which warms the cockles of me heart!

TARRANT, Alabama – Helen Johnson stared in amazement at the piles of food accumulating in her small Tarrant apartment on Wednesday.

“The last time I saw my house this full, I was 12-years-old and staying with my grandmother,” said the 47-year-old mother and grandmother. “I’ve been crying all day.”

On Wednesday, Tarrant police delivered two truckloads of groceries to the woman, who on Saturday was caught stealing five eggs from the nearby Dollar General. Instead of arresting Johnson, Tarrant Police Officer William Stacy bought her a carton of eggs and sent her home with the promise to never shoplift again.

That in itself, Johnson said, was a blessing. But those blessings now seem to have taken on a life of their own. Tarrant police said they’ve received calls from across the United States and world since hearing of Johnson’s plight. People have offered food, money and clothing.

It’s been so overwhelming, said Tarrant Police Chief Dennis Reno, he had to bring in a second police dispatcher to handle the volume of calls. Police officials today also set up a fund at People’s First Federal Credit Union on Ford Avenue in Tarrant to benefit the Johnson family.

“It’s growing and growing and growing,” Reno said. ” A guy called me from New York and just broke down. He said for two months he’s been angry with police, and he said this has totally changed his mind.”

A food bank from Memphis is set to arrive in Tarrant this evening. “This woman’s getting plenty of food,” the chief said. “She shouldn’t be hungry for a while.”

What a difference a week makes. Johnson’s two daughters, a niece and two grandchildren, ages 1 and 3, live with her in their Tarrant home. The kids’ mother gets a welfare check – $120 a month – but that check was lost in the mail. Johnson herself gets a disability check, which is set to come this week.

By Saturday, the family had gone two days without food. Johnson went to Dollar General on Pinson Valley Parkway with $1.25 and thought that would be enough to buy a carton of eggs. When she realized she was 50 cents plus tax short, she stuffed five eggs in her pocket out of desperation.

She didn’t get far. “Of course when I put them in my jacket pocket they broke,” Johnson said in an earlier interview. “I’m not a good thief at all.”

A store worker stopped Johnson and asked her if she had taken the eggs. She said she did, and they said they had already called the police.

By the time she got to the door, Tarrant police Officer William Stacy was there, and told her to stay put. The officer said he’d already talked to Dollar General officials and they said they weren’t going to press charges.

Johnson didn’t know that, and said she was waiting for him to bring out the handcuffs. Instead, he went into the store and came back out with a carton of eggs. “She started crying, she got very emotional and was very apologetic,” Stacy said. “She tried to give me the money she had on her, $1.25.”

Johnson said she was stunned. “I was like, ‘Oh my God, thank you Jesus for this man,”’ she said. “He is my hero.”

Stacy said he can remember times growing up when his mother had trouble finding ways to feed him and his sister. He had been on a call to Johnson’s house once before, and had gotten a glimpse of the living conditions. The furnishings are sparse, and the family sleeps on mattresses on the floor.

“The story she told me Saturday matched up with what I had seen when I was there,” he said. “I felt like it was the right thing to do. I didn’t want to pass judgment on her.”

She asked how she could repay him, and he told her to not shoplift again. “Sometimes the best route is to not arrest,” Stacy said. “I hope she won’t do it again. I pray she doesn’t, and I don’t think she will.”

Johnson asked Stacy if she could hug him, and he said yes. Unbeknownst to both of them, a man named Robert “Dollar” Tripp filmed the scene on his cell phone and later posted it on his Facebook with the hashtag “feelgoodstoryoftheday.”

The story went viral. On Tuesday, Tarrant police showed up at her home. “I was shook and so scared,” she said. “I thought it was about the eggs. My grandbaby said, ‘Are you going to jail?’ and I said I hoped not.”

Instead, Tarrant police took Johnson to headquarters, where they signed her up for the annual Tarrant Toy Drive, and also are helping to coordinate the offers of food and clothing also pouring in, said Tarrant police Sgt. Larry Rice.

On Wednesday, Stacy and Officer Jay Jenkins took two loads of food to Johnson’s apartment. She couldn’t stop crying, and she couldn’t stop hugging Stacy. “I just busted out and started hollering,” Johnson said of all the food delivered to her home. “I was yelling so loud. I would have been a good cheerleader.”

With help from a nearby church, Johnson spent much of Wednesday reorganizing her kitchen cabinets to make room for all the food. The family, who by Tuesday was down to one slice of bread, had their pick of what to eat.

So what did they eat? “Cereal,” she said. “That’s our favorite.”

Her grandchildren were also happy to see the officers at their apartment. “You back?” said 3-year-old Tamarose, as she grabbed various cans of food to show the family.

Asked what she would do if someone else in need asked her for a slice of bread, she said, “I would give them the whole loaf. And then I would give them Officer Stacy’s number.”

Johnson said her life is forever changed because of the actions of Stacy and the Tarrant Police Department. “My heart,” she said, “is wide open right now.”

Anyone who wants to make a donation to Johnson can do so at People’s First Federal Credit Union. Checks should be made payable to the Tarrant Police Charity Fund c/o the Johnson Family. Checks can be mailed to the bank at 1140 Ford Avenue, Tarrant, Alabama 35217.
