Sacred Decorating

Today’s post comes as a follow-up to a post from two years ago: How to Thrive in a Less than Ideal Location. I write now from a place of gratitude, post-relocation and feeling ideally placed, but I thought I’d share additional insights from the new location. So often I hear from clients that they feel misplaced, lonely, sick or stuck, with no sacred space to call their own. If that describes you, then do check out the previous link, too. If, instead, you feel largely well placed but you want to upgrade your surroundings, then today’s post offers suggestions for adding even more sacred experience into your everyday home, office, or little corner.

Why Bother?

“I have more important things to worry about than decorating.”

“It’s too overwhelming. If I start, I’ll never finish.”

“My space looks good enough, but I don’t feel inspired or energized. Why can’t I get things to flow in other areas?”

Decorating might seem superficial, but it’s one of the fastest ways to shift energy in other areas of life. Whether you study feng shui, or just pay attention to colors and shapes that delight your senses, your everyday environment seeps into your subconscious. As your subconscious works nonstop to filter and create your outer experience, changing your external environment alters your internal feelings and perspective. These, in turn, alter how you experience your external reality.

It’s like breathing: in, out, in, out. You live and breathe and move in your everyday experiences. Like polluted air, a space that irritates, annoys or crushes your soul does more damage than it would first appear. On the flip side, a space that calms, uplifts and expands your soul acts like increased oxygen in the body. Most parasites and other nasties can’t stand a well oxygenated environment. As you clean and uplift the areas in which you spend your time, you welcome fresh inspiration, healing and opportunities in life.

Little Things Count — A Lot

In sessions, I always ask people to pay attention to the little things. What small, symbolic step could you take today, which would move you towards your larger goal? Little things add up. They also take less time, energy, focus and determination. In many instances, little things feel like throw-away’s: five minutes to take out the trash, ten minutes to file the pile. A little thing could include changing your screensaver to something that makes you smile. Maybe you move your desk or bed so that a pleasant view greets you instead of one that sinks your spirit.

Lyme Journal: A Guided Recovery Workbook — Now Available

At long last, “Lyme Journal: A Guided Recovery Workbook” is now available! You can purchase the 8 1/2 x 11″ journal/workbook here.

I designed this 139-page workbook based on over 17 years as a Medical Intuitive Life Coach. Since 2004, I’ve focused on supporting clients, friends and family struggling with Chronic Lyme Disease. In addition to my still-in-progress “Metaphysics of Lyme” book, this latest release shares the unusual knowledge I’ve acquired through intuition and supporting amazing souls on their own Lyme journey.

Prompts on each page explore common Lyme issues and foster positive changes, inside and out. This guide works best for people open to a holistic approach to healing. It explores physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual patterns. Whether you write, draw, or collage your answers, this workbook helps you to identify and address hidden aspects of your journey. Since Lyme is “The Great Imitator,” these questions also apply to autoimmune and neurological issues, along with chronic pain, co-infections, adrenal fatigue, thyroid issues, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, MS, toxic mold exposure, and more.

When people shift limiting thought patterns, clear away spiritual dross, and begin to celebrate and cherish their unique gifts, they open space for healing. This journal/workbook is not meant to replace traditional or alternative treatments, but to trigger movements up and out of the vibration of Lyme symptoms. By accessing deep, authentic parts and honoring Lyme as a powerful soul healer/guide, life becomes freer and more magical than ever before. “Lyme Journal: A Guided Recovery Workbook” is available on Amazon.

Thank you to everyone who’s encouraged this project, and special gratitude goes to those beautiful clients who’ve allowed me to walk with them on this sacred journey.

Blessings and Love,

Laura

New: Reiki Level 2 Symbols Guided Practice Journal and Reiki Healing Attunements Record Keeper

As promised, January 2019 begins the rollout of new products I created at the end of 2018. This first batch supports people trained and attuned to Reiki Level 2 and/or Reiki Level 3 (Master or Master Teacher). I have long wished these products existed for my students and finally figured out how to create them in a print on demand format. Details and links below:

Reiki Level 2 Symbols: A Guided Practice Journal

by Laura Bruno, M.A., RMT

You’re a Certified Reiki Level 2 Practitioner, now what? How can Reiki Symbols and Reiki Level 2 Awareness improve your daily life? This guided practice journal shares 42 prompts, exercises, techniques and ideas to deepen your experience of the Reiki Level 2 Symbols.

Learn new ways to give and receive Power, Mental Emotional Balance, and Reiki Distant Healing. Designed by a Reiki Master Teacher to support students trained and attuned to Reiki Level 2, this 42-day program explores Universal Life Force Energy in a profound and personal way.

Please note: this is a guided practice journal for people already trained in and attuned to Reiki Level 2. This guided practice journal helps you to maximize your Reiki Level 2 practice, but it requires prior training in how to draw the symbols.

I’ve taught Reiki since March 2002, and I keep encountering Level 2 Practitioners who finished their certification without a clear understanding of the amazing tools they received. This guidebook includes many tips and exercises I share in coaching sessions and in my Level 3 training of people who’ve taken Reiki 1 and 2 from other Reiki Master Teachers. It turns my research and experience into questions that help you discover how the Reiki 2 symbols work for you in your life. The more you practice Reiki, the stronger it flows. This guided journal allows you to take theory and apply it in a joyful, expansive practice. You can purchase this 7 x 10″ guided journal by clicking here.

Reiki Healing Attunements Record Keeper

By Sync Winks

The Reiki Healing Attunement is one of the most powerful techniques learned in Reiki Level 3. You can use a Reiki Healing Attunement to supercharge goals, health, career, finances, relationships, and so much more.

Use this journal to record the date, intentions, who or what you’ve attuned, and any observations before, during and after the Reiki Healing Attunement. The prompt pages leave room for notes, photos, drawings and other details to track your Reiki experience and results.

Please note: this is not an instruction guide. Learning how to perform a Reiki Healing Attunement requires training and certification in Reiki Level 3 (Master or Master Teacher). This is a notebook for people already attuned and trained to Reiki Level 3, who know how to perform a Reiki Healing Attunement. The notebook contains prompts to record each Reiki Healing Attunement in one convenient location, so that you can track and improve your results.

I published this notebook under the pen name Sync Winks, because this will be your Reiki Healing Attunements Record Keeper, not mine. A hallmark of Reiki Healing Attunements is a major increase in synchronicities and “can’t make this up” coincidences — hence the pen name Sync Winks.

I designed this 7 x 10″ notebook to coordinate with the Reiki Level 2 Symbols practice journal. Both products support greater awareness of how Reiki flows in your life. Recording date, time, intention and results of Reiki Healing Attunements in one place encourages deeper understanding of how this powerful tool works. You can return to your notebook for encouragement, faith boosting, and success reminders. You can also track experiments with different timing (i.e. morning, evening, New Moon, Full Moon, Wheel of the Year, etc.) to see if and how those things affect your results. You can purchase the Reiki Healing Attunements Record Keeper by clicking here.

Additional Products on the Way …

I know many of you are anxiously awaiting the guided Lyme recovery journal. That was a much larger project, and my final, final proof copy should arrive this Wednesday. As soon as it becomes available on Amazon, I’ll post the description and link. Besides the Reiki support products and the guided Lyme recovery journal, I created several other products I’ve long wished existed. Stay tuned for those!

Dragons, Faeries and Flowers at Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park

We had a lovely extended holiday visit with David’s daughter, Allie. On her last day here, she and I took a ladies outing to the Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park. Some people may recall David and me taking Momma Jane there a year ago to see the miniature city, lights and huge greenhouse. Their holiday display remains up through Epiphany, and I thought Austin, Texas based Allie would enjoy some warmth and greenery. Sure enough, we found lush decorations. We also lucked into a spontaneous and personal tour by an 87-year-old volunteer!

Timothy Glenn ~ 2019: Welcome to the Reset

Today we have a special treat: Timothy Glenn’s 2019 report coming in well before the Chinese New Year! I’ve hyperlinked the earlier articles he references. It’s always fun to look back on how predictions unfolded across linear time.

Personally, I’ve been feeling Saturn in Capricorn in a major way, as Saturn’s been crossing and hovering over my Capricorn North Node. As Tim mentions, even if you don’t have any obvious Capricorn in your chart, you’re still going to feel these energies in at least some area(s) of life. Both 2019 and 2020 feature a whole bevy of potent astrological alignments. Whew! Excellent times for those who’ve diligently done their Shadow Work, and a chance to awaken for those who haven’t yet … Here’s Timothy’s report:

2019: Welcome to the Reset

by Timothy Glenn

Perhaps you feel as though a gigantic hand with its index finger extended has descended from the universe, and has pressed the reset button on Planet Earth. If so, you’re far from being alone.

From the article 2018: Welcome to the Storm:

2017: SHTF (Shit Hits the Fan)
2018: SFOOTF (Shit Flies Out of the Fan)

And now we can add:

2019: SSAO (Shit Splatters All Over)

The external structures of our world are barely beginning their transmogrification. The governmental, economic, academic, religious and scientific systems of the old Matrix will have no place in the New Earth. Useful remnants of them could find a temporary place in the planetary transition, but will diminish into mere traces as the fear-based Matrix fades away, and the love-based New Earth emerges.

January 2019 Specials

Happy New Year! I wish you all good things in 2019. May it be your favorite year yet!

Today’s the last day for the December 2018 Special and Discounted Gift Certificates. If you’d like either or both of those, please contact me by 5 p.m. Eastern US time on December 31st. On January 1, 2019, my business gets a reboot. I’ve got a new business name, different PayPal account, and five new products for release in January, including a guided Lyme recovery journal. I’ll announce changes and cluster those new offerings by theme throughout the month.

For the New Year, I felt led to discount the very popular New Year Tarot Readings and have also had requests to offer the Three for Two Special, a chance for extra support and focus. Details below:

JANUARY 2019 SPECIALS

$44 New Year Tarot Special

Half-hour tarot reading at 20% off the usual rate. Tarot readings offer an energetic check-in, the chance to ask questions about pending decisions or intentions, and represent a fun, yet powerful way to gain perspective on relationships and challenges. They can also be used to offer a snapshots of the coming months and year.

Tarot readings are particularly good for people who don’t know what kinds of questions to ask me; they just want some kind of guidance because they feel unsure of what’s coming or what to focus upon. Tarot also seems to benefit those people who have exceptionally good things coming their way, yet wonder if I might be “padding the reading” or “just saying what they want to hear.” The cards don’t lie. (Neither do I – but the cards seem an even more objective medium for delivering good news.)

Please contact me if you’d like to sign up for this special. Offer valid if prepaid on or before 1/31/19.

Three For Two

So many people have asked me to repeat this special to help them jump start the New Year, so here it is. Three hours for the price of two: save $222. This package can be used in whatever increments you choose — hour, 40-minute, half-hour, or 20-miute sessions — and for whatever services you’d like — Medical Intuition, Life Coaching, Astrology, Relationship Clarity, Soul Readings, or any other related service. $444 if prepaid on or before 1/31/19. Please contact me to sign up.

Hedgehog Haven: Wisdom and Spirit of the Hedgehog

Most people know that I have a long and close relationship with owls and more recently with foxes. But not everyone knows about my deep love of hedgehogs. I think they’re adorable, and all through gifts, they’re slowly gaining a foothold in Dra’Faven. I took a photo of the Fox Faery doll Tania gave me for Christmas, showing how without prior planning, she fit in perfectly with the animals and crystals. I mentioned the orgone ferret curled up alongside her, as well as the amethysts.

Tania said, “…All so magickal. And that hedgehog is also cute.” That prompted me to take pictures of the other resident hedgehogs. I didn’t realize we had so many until I snapped the photos! These ones said they’re OK making a blog appearance. The two characters below arrived for Christmas/Solstice from our friends Tracy and Chip. They’re sitting alongside a magick rock painted by Tania back when David and I still lived in Goshen: Continue reading
