Lyme Book, Gardening and Other Updates

First, a Writing Update

I haven’t given a progress update in awhile, so I thought I’d share some recent developments with my Lyme books. Yes, that’s books, plural!

The Metaphysics of Lyme Disease has over 102,000 words and counting, written primarily by me, but also including wisdom, examples and inspiration from many Lyme savvy colleagues and survivors. I’m so grateful for their contributions, and I cannot believe how much I have grown along with the book. When I couldn’t find an astrologer to write the most important patterns I see again and again in the charts of Lyme clients, I formalized 12 years of armchair astrology, under the perfect-for-me mentorship of my dear friend Ann Kreilkamp.

Now I find another need to branch out, as I would love to offer one, primary, hands-on resource for guided journaling, self-assessment, and timeline shifts related to Lyme disease. I currently have about 30 additional books people would need to read and then discern which aspects and and how to tweak them for healing Lyme. If I add all those exercises and questions into The Metaphysics of Lyme Disease, then the flow stops and starts, switching gears and losing the important sense of a larger, interconnected picture. Plus, it would become an even longer book and require major editing to create a cohesive text with all the contributors, my explanations and much more hands-on guidance. I originally wanted to release my Lyme book by the end of 2018, but the project has grown — and deepened — so much that trying to rush for an arbitrary deadline feels wrong.

But I do feel led to release a Lyme book this year!

Last Friday, inspiration struck. Continue reading

Fox and Owl

I promised to share some of the ongoing fox synchronicities related to my Tahoe trip, our workshop, and continuing upon return to Kalamazoo. On the Sunday after our workshop, I took a shopping detour with some friends to get food for my return trip. We also stopped in TJ Maxx in South Lake Tahoe, where I happened upon a white pillow with a huge red fox painted on it. Wherever I walked in the store, I kept “landing” right beside the fox pillow. If I had any space to spare in my suitcase, I would have bought it.

The sync winks became more obvious the next day when Tania and I sat in her magickal office, hanging out with Queen Astrid.

All of a sudden, Tania noticed a movement in the mirror behind Astrid — a reflection from across the street. We ran outside just in time to see some sort of canine wandering through her neighbors’ fenced in yard. Continue reading

Autumn Renewal

As we move further into autumn in the Northern Hemisphere, I can’t help smiling at the instantaneous replacement of whatever falls away. I see this most obviously in the garden, where hibiscus leaves turn yellow and burgundy for fall, while two of our four bushes sport an unexpected second round of blooms:

Metaphysical Meaning of UTI, Bladder and Kidney Problems

This post from September 2017 wants to go up again. It has remained one of the top posts since I originally blogged it, and with all the Kavanaugh-Blasey, #metoo, Karen Monahan focus and more, this area’s imbalances have only increased. This past week, I’ve heard from many women suffering from long term bladder/female hormonal issues that have recently peaked in intensity. No surprise with all the collective Lilith energies. I also find the pain and reactivity of this archetype highly relevant for autoimmune reactions, PMS and yes, especially chronic UTI’s and mystery bladder infections.

Remember to seek joy and minimize irritations. Find little ways to shift your energy to create the life you love rather than react to what you hate. This area houses your deepest soul longings. What do you REALLY want to experience? Live from that place, moment by moment for more ease and please instead of trauma drama.

Laura Bruno's Blog

In a span of nine days, I just spoke with eight women about severe UTI or bladder infections. This topic is not unusual for Medical Intuitive sessions; however, that number of people in a short span of time definitely got my attention. I figured if so many people are contacting me about these issues at one time, then likely more “out there” are suffering in silence. This post is not limited to women, by the way. It just happened to be eight women I recently heard from about UTI and bladder issues.

As usual, I give my standard disclaimer: I am not a doctor or psychologist, not diagnosing or prescribing. Anything I share here is based on intuitive observation and/or experience. Medical Intuition is not meant to replace medical advice or support. I look at the energies of things on mental, emotional, spiritual, physical and other levels and report what…

Lake Tahoe Recap and Reintegration

Sweet Tania Marie posted a lengthy description of our co-taught “Living a More Magickal Life” workshop, along with photos and personal sharing about my week long stay with her in Stateline, NV, where I lived not once, but twice in the mid-2000’s. I also spent a year in Reno and used to travel there for years afterwards, in order to teach monthly workshops. Given 43 moves in my life, Reno-Tahoe feels more like home than most places. Now that Tania, her partner Dave, bunny Astrid and two cats, Boojum and Sweet Pea live in Stateline, too, I’m sure my David and I will visit there more often. This time, though, it was just me, headed to Reno for the first time since January 2008 and to Tahoe for the first time since January 2007.

First of all, our workshop went great! We had so much fun teaching together, and synchronicity ensured just the right mix of nine women, eleven total with Tania and me. We dressed the part in purple, as did several of the day’s attendees, and the entire afternoon focused on recognizing and empowering the magic already moving through everyone’s lives. The Divine Feminine was out in full force! Our workshop included instruction, stories, meditations, exercises, nature immersion and a potent circle/healing ritual. The animals and wind chimed in at key moments of each person’s healing ceremony, underscoring “As Within, So Without,” along with the interconnectedness and support from all creatures and avenues.  Here Tania and I are post-workshop, but pre-vegan pizza group dinner:

It was a week of many, many photos, some of which Tania includes in her post. Since she already shared lots of Laura-Tania pictures, I’ll try not to duplicate too many here.

As usual for our gatherings, Tania and I are both on the cusp of big shifts, which our visits tend to amplify. I left California rather suddenly in February 2010, so for me, this trip also meant reclaiming any bits and pieces of myself still lingering in that former version of me — parts on the road not taken. Reno-Tahoe, Monterey, and Sonoma County remain among my top favorite spots I’ve lived, so I wondered how it would feel to return. Continue reading

October 2018 Specials

OCTOBER 2018 SPECIALS

“Boo, Gotcha!” Big Picture Reboot

The title of this new special references that haunted house scare from someone or something jumping out when least expected. Some shocks are easier to laugh off than others; some of life’s “boo, gotcha!” moments can haunt us for years or even decades. This 30-minute session brings clarity and bigger picture context to the ghosts of your past. Whether from last week or eons ago, soul shocks finally begin to heal when we recognize and honor their role in the soul’s larger journey.

This session will help anyone with unexplained attachments, difficult breakups, sudden “accidents,” unexplained phobias, or feelings you just can’t shake. It can also provide clarity on recurring dreams, “blessings in disguise” where you can’t find the blessing, as well as “what are the odds?!” freakish experiences. A half-hour for $88 if prepaid on or by October 31, 2018. (Save $45 off my usual half-hour rate.) Please contact me to sign up.

Celtic New Year Wheel of the Year Special

Although Western Culture considers New Year’s Eve as December 31st, Samhain (pronounced SOW-en) marks the end of harvest season and the beginning of the dark, introspective half of the year. Traditionally celebrated on October 31st as Halloween or All Hallow’s Eve, Samhain seems like the right time to begin my next Wheel of the Year Special. (The official crossquarter day occurs this year on 11/7/18, so I’ll leave sign up open through 10/31/18.) Participants in the 8-Day Wheel of the Year Special I offered last January have found deeper connection and harmony with the seasons and their inner and outer worlds. On my end, I’ve loved helping people empower themselves by recognizing larger energy currents and non-linear time cycles. I’ve timed the Reiki Healing Attunements for maximum potency and support with each Turn.

Honoring and celebrating the Wheel of the Year reclaims secular or religious holidays and seasonal shifts as eight windows of “time out of time,” when the veils grow very thin. Whether we use such times as a reflective pause or to align ourselves with natural cycles, the Wheel of the Year invites us to partner with the Dance of Life.

This $888 special includes eight 30-minute sessions (one scheduled before each Turn of the Wheel, beginning in late October or early November 2018), plus a Reiki Healing Attunement at each Turn. These private sessions will be intuitively tailored to you (and your hemisphere), helping you to recognize synchronicities and supportive energies, as well as to clarify focus, intentions, meditations of your heart, rituals, Earth healing, personal healing, and/or discernment about how to make the most of these openings.

If you’ve felt called to embrace a deeper connection with the Land and a more soulful experience of time, the Wheel of the Year Special offers a discounted bundle of eight sessions and eight Reiki Healing Attunements in order to support and deepen your quest. This $888 bundle saves $616 off an individual investment of $1,504 and also represents my commitment to fit you in for a session prior to each Turn of the Wheel. Please contact me to sign up. Offer expires 10/31/18, because we will need time to schedule before our first Turn in late October/early November.

As with the original special, I don’t know if I will offer this again. My doing so now involves a year-long commitment to walk with you through an entire Circle of the Seasons.  (If you signed up for the original Wheel of the Year Special and want to continue for another year, this package will begin where your original leaves off.)

Where Do We Go From Here? ~ New Realities Underway

I’m back and integrating my week in Tahoe. Sweet Tania Marie gives a wonderful recap of our Autumn Equinox workshop and some of our adventures together on my visit. We spoke about shapeshifting in our “Living a More Magickal Life” class, and these photos certainly evidence some of that! I will write up my own, complementary post soon but wanted to reblog Tania’s since we will share different aspects of our time together.

Lots of love and thanks to everyone who joined us for the amazing workshop experience and/or dinner and hike afterwards, to Timothy Glenn for meeting us for lunch on Monday, and extra love and gratitude to my sparkly Faery sis Tania, her partner Dave, and all the animals for their hospitality. Much love!

Wow! Where do I start? It’s always hard to find the words that will encompass the totality of experience had, but since this is impossible I can only do my best to express what feels most important to impart from my heart. The last week, as you know, I’ve been immersed in the alchemy of weaving cycles into seamless progression while sweet Laura joined for a Faery visit and an important Equinox and Full Moon gathering. We had no idea what was in store, nor the totality of reasons for it all, but we followed the nudges and committed to seeing it all through.

I’ll do my best attempt at summarizing the key points and expressing the nearly impossible to put into words. I’m also only sharing a fraction of the photos taken during this week, although if you’re on Instagram you can see more of the nature and magick…
